  2. I can get into safe mode by F8...but log in area does not appear. (same with other modes avail in F8)
  3. I am able to f8 into the advanced menu but in safe mode or any other mode from that menu- the log in does not appear. I have tried safe mode,safe mode w/networking,etc. Other suggestions? I appreciate all help.
  4. Since the log in screen doesn't appear, I assume it's booting straight into windows?

    If you want to enable the log in screen go to the control panel-->user accounts-->change the way users log on or off-->check the box to use the welcome screen.
