Unable to log on to Windows 2000
Posted on 2003-03-30
I have a Windows 2000 based computer that hangs after you enter a user name and password. The problem started after an unexpected shutdown caused from a power outage. It sits for 5 minutes on "preparing network connections" then hangs after entering the username and password. I'm unable to log on to the local machine with the administrator password either. This also happens in "Safe Mode". Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I have been able to recover data off the hard drive by plugging it into another machine as a slave but I'd like to try and fix it without having to reload the everything.
