XP Media Edition
Dell Dimension E520
Boots up just fine. When I type in my password all is as expected. But when I hit enter after my password, nothing happens. The password window with the dots across it just stays there. It's just frozen. Same thing happens with any of the 4 usernames on the system. Only a hard power-down has any effect.
The machine boots up in safe mode just fine, and I can log in as myself in safe mode just fine. I did a virus scan and found nothing. (I'm typing this in safe mode on the affected machine.)
But when I boot back up in normal mode, same problem. Enter password, then nothing. I tried booting to "last known good configuration" and still the same thing happens. Ideas?
