Windows Vista black screen RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi


    Let me start off by saying I am a technophobe so if you can help, please answer in no techie language (make it stupid proof so I can undersand it!)

    Gone to switch on my PC this morning, gone in to the normal family user account (which is an administrator account) and I get the black screen.

    I tried signing in through the Administrator account and my son's account (which has administrator rights) and I get the same.  Signed in through a non administrator account and the desk top pops up fine.

    Basically the problem seems to be with profiles that have administrator rights.  I cant make adminsrator changes through non adminstrator accounts (I had thought about deletin and re-adding the effected accounts)

    Any ideas how to resolve this?  (PS my son and daughter are both now on Macs and are loving the fact that I am having a problem with Windows!!)

    Many thanks
