    Help! Computer won't bring up login box.

    I'm completely computer illiterate, well technically but I can operate a computer quite well.

    Today my computer will turn on then a selection menu comes up to start computer normally or fix it or something. Both options have the same affect and I end up with a background screen and a movable cursor but nothing comes up to log into the computer.

    I have turned it on and off several times, removed the battery and preset crtl alt delete but to no avail.

    Anyone have any ideas what is going on?????

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi,

    Welcome to the Lounge.

    Do you know how to boot the computer in safe mode and have you tried it? Did this just happen without any changes to the computer, like installing new software, Windows updates, adding new hardware or something similar?

    I tried booting in safe mode but it just came back to this page. There were no program changes but my daughter somehow managed to flip the screen but we fixed that before this happened.

    Try double clicking on the desktop..

    Also, you can try right clicking on the task bar and clicking on SHOW DESKTOP if the above suggestion doesn't work.
