    Okay heres my problem. I have a Window XP Media Center Edition laptop. It's really not that old, just got it last spring. Well Last night I restarted it and it will not let me get past the login screen. I click on my user and it logs me in for about 2 seconds then out. So I tried going to safe mode and I can't get into any account, including Administrator. I can't spell that word..
    Anyways I don't know how to get past this. I have a friend who's laptop did the same thing and he never got around it. Anyone know?
    Thanks in advance for any information you can give me.

    Try booting to "Last Known Good Configuration" - start tapping the F8 key as soon as the BIOS screen disappears, and when the menu appears, choose "Last Known Good Configuration".
