I have Windows XP Professional w/ SP3 on HP ProBook 4710s
When I went to boot up it was very slow, the lovely start up music did not chime and when at last it did boot there were no icons. I booted in safe mode and viola icons appeared. I did a system restore and no icons, I tried restoring to an earlier date still no icons. I went back to a few months ago and it would not restore. I called microsoft and they said it could be a corrupted user profile. I told them I didn't even have a user profile, but they had me create one nonetheless and try to move everything over to the new profile. My ADMIN profile has now vanished and the two new profiles they had me create do not work, it sits on the "welcome" screen and doesn't change. What can I do to fix this?
I'm typing on another computer and my computer will no longer boot in anything but safe mode, no network, no command prompt. Am I toast?
