Have to reboot RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

     I hope someone can help me. Im running windows xp, svpk 2. I am the only user on this pc ,  I've only had it a few months. But it seemed to have some 'bugs' from very beginning.  My old computer bit the dust, and i am using same email accounts etc as before.


    The problem is when i log off, computer is suppose to go into hybernation. but instead, I have to reboot,  in order to sign in. The sign in [main] screen will be there but i am not able to type anything in the box,  NOTHING, so i have to shut completely down and reboot.

    Then and only after rebooting am i able to sign in. I created a user profile[ and password], but did the same on my old pc, with out this problem..I am wondering if i should delete the account.


     I had a another computer, and never had this happen before.  I have one account [ mine] and do not understand why this occurs everytime. Its very frustrating. Please ,any solutions?
