I have an HP Pavilion p7-1110 Desktop PC. I'm typing this from my Windows 8.1 laptop. My desktop booted normally and loaded the welcome screen, then the problem started. I typed my password like usual and waited for it to log me in. At first I just thought it was lagging. But it didn't log me in, and it returned to the welcome/login screen again. No error message or password incorrect message came up. I tried at least 5 times, probably almost 10, to log in. I'm at the point where I don't know what to do. I have Windows Defender, Windows Firewall, and Microsoft Security Essentials, and I recently got a definition update for Security Essentials. I do not share my computers with anyone, nor do I plan to, so that eliminates someone changing my password as a prank. I couldn't have forgotten it, because 1) I write all my passwords down and 2) no message saying 'incorrect password' came up. The only thing I can think of that might be causing this problem is downloading themes yesterday. But my computer worked just fine until I tried to log in today. I'm so frustrated that all I have to say is, if it was a hacker, that coward should be fortunate my fist can't reach their face through my screen! I have never had an issue like this before, and I've downloaded countless things before without any problems. I've also installed lots of themes before, so it can't be a file put in a wrong folder and causing some kind of weird error.

Have you tried getting into safe mode?

I haven't; I'm honestly not sure what it does. But I press the F8 key to get to the boot screen right?

See if you can get that far, if you can some of the guys in the know may be able to get you straight.
