When I turn it on, it takes longer than usual to get to the "User Accounts" screen. When it finally gets there, I'm unable to select any of the accounts, and therefore unable to enter any passwords. I have double checked, and I know the mouse and keyboard are functioning correctly. It doesn't even work when I click on the "Turn Off Computer" icon. I have tried starting in Safe Mode, but that doesn't work, either. It gets all the way to the fancy blue "Windows is Starting Up" screen, but does nothing from there. It's not frozen, because I can move the mouse pointer around, but it definitely won't move on from that screen. I have also tried starting from other modes, such as Safe Mode with Command Prompt, Last Known Good Configuration, Debugging Mode, etc., but the same thing happens everytime. I'm at a complete lost of what to do because I can't even get to the desktop. My brothers told me they've never made any backup disks, so I can't use that. I fear that the only thing I can try now is reinstalling windows, but I'd hate to do that because, as it is the family computer, there are hundreds of digital photos that would be lost. Any advice or help that you guys could give me would be so greatly appreciated! Thanks!
