i got a very bad problem

basically, days b4 i had another prob where i could not update due to me doing a repair on the windows xp home os

turned out to b microsoft having a stealth update and the repair install screws up the file.

i managed to get the update after installing the dll and giving myself permissions to the registry.

however, after i installed the windows installer 3.1 update, it couldn't restart.

and when i shut the com manually, i couln'd get it booted pass the welcome screen

all i see is the good old blue back ground with the xp home logo.

no user name wad so eva

i ran a chkdsk and it turned out fine.

this also appears nomatter wad mode i boot as. safe or not

You can take a look at some of these situations and see if one or more parallels what you experience: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=X...+welcome+screen

oh yea... just to clarify

i cannot access the system in anyway, cause i can't log in...

so i am currently locked out of my own com.

is there anything i could do? i did my own research and noticed that the problem usually occurs after an update or installer. and usually ppl will bite the bullet to reformat their com.

and that is gonna b a last resort... pls... help me save my com

Well, take a look:

10 things you can do when Windows XP won't boot - http://articles.techrepublic.com.com/5100-10877-6031733.html

Can you get into the BIOS?

If not, I think I would try resetting the CMOS by removing the CMOS battery, which should send the BIOS to default settings.

Removing the CMOS Battery,Clear password. - Computer Care Center Tech Forum - http://www.computercare.ca/forum/showthread.php?t=818

I would also try to take the hard drive out and move it to another system where I would run chkdsk /r on it and hope for the best. If chkdsk cannot run on the drive, it's time for a disk diagnostic from the hard drive manufacturer.

I would even try a repair install of XP, if none of the above helped.

If all of the above failed, I would move to clean install.

kkx... a quick update on wad i did

i did a repair install twice already. dunno wad that means though cause it still not working

and a clean install is painful...

hmm...

oh yes...

when i reach the screen, i can move my mouse and my keyboard is working too as i can see the lights on and off when i use the locks.

but wad bothers me is

when i reach that screen, it just stays like that. it will not proceed to the logon screen, thus locking me out from the computer.

i can also access my bios which by default i had already set to a blank password.

and thanks a lot

arr i seriously need help...

i got a ubcd which i am currently using to boot up. this allows me to reach my registry.

and i tried to do something called auto logon by editing the registry

so according to microsoft

"You can use Registry Editor to add your log on information. To do this, follow these steps:
1. Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK.
2. Locate the following registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
3. Using your account name and password, double-click the DefaultUserName entry, type your user name, and then click OK.
4. Double-click the DefaultPassword entry, type your password under the value data box, and then click OK.

If there is no DefaultPassword value, create the value. To do this, follow these steps:
a. In Registry Editor, click Edit, click New, and then click String Value.
b. Type DefaultPassword as the value name, and then press ENTER.
c. Double-click the newly created key, and then type your password in the Value Data box.
If no DefaultPassword string is specified, Windows XP automatically changes the value of the AutoAdminLogon registry key from 1 (true) to 0 (false) to turn off the AutoAdminLogon feature.
5. Double-click the AutoAdminLogon entry, type 1 in the Value Data box, and then click OK.

If there is no AutoAdminLogon entry, create the entry. To do this, follow these steps:
a. In Registry Editor, click Edit, click New, and then click String Value.
b. Type AutoAdminLogon as the value name, and then press ENTER.
c. Double-click the newly created key, and then type 1 in the Value Data box.
6. Quit Registry Editor.
7. Click Start, click Restart, and then click OK."

but somehow i am still stuck... i need help... could anyone help to point out wad the problem might be?

hmm... it seems that i had to reformat it no matter wad.

so basically this is wad u can do to save ur files:

dl a ubcd using anycomputer and burn it.(follow the steps of the ubcd creator)
then using the ubcd, boot as cd by pressing f8 at the start.
then u use the standalone os to access ur computer.

when u get it, u can try to save as many files as possible.

and it seems that there is no other way:p

cheerio!
