Accounts :: Lenovo G580 - Why Logging Into A Temporary Profile

Feb 4, 2014

A few days ago my laptop started logging me into a temporary profile, when I log on 2 mine it says preparing windows for a while and then I actually log in and all my setting have been changed and also my files deleted. It says "You can't access your files, and files created in this profile will be deleted when you sign out..and my files have been deleted all of them it shows on the windows 8_OS(C space meter thing. I've tried rebooting and everything but nothing. My admin user account has also been deleted. I've literally tried everything on the internet like even going to the System 32 to select SAM file but it always says the SAM file is in use. My whole life and memories are all on my laptop I have a lenovo G580.

Lenovo G580 Laptop Won't Start Up - Stuck On Boot Menu

Sep 17, 2014

My Lenovo G580 laptop won't start up. When I turn it on using the power button it goes straight to boot menu/app menu. There are various options there to choose from, but whichever one I choose, it keeps going back to boot menu. I've tried using the novo button, but it still doesn't work. Whatever I choose from the novo button screen, except "BIOS setup", keeps taking me back to the boot menu. My laptop won't start up.

Setup Installation :: Lenovo G580 Laptop / Unable To Boot To Disc?

Feb 10, 2013

I was having problems getting to the boot menu of my Lenovo G580 laptop earlier.

I figured out how to get the boot menu - But my only options are hard drive, LAN v4 and LAN v6 boot - Nothing about a disc. So I went into the BIOS boot priority menu and set disk to #1 - It still booted to my hard drive!

Lenovo G580 Audio Keeps Coming From Internal Speakers When Headphone Plugged In

Oct 30, 2013

I have a Lenovo G580 with Windows 8. I have a weird problem with audio. If the default audio is set as internal speakers and I plug in my headphones the sound just keeps coming from the internal speakers. But if I set the headphones as default, I can switch between the speakers and headphones as I want and there is no problem if only I play music from my computer.

If I try to play something from my browser, however, the sound only comes from the internal speakers and connecting the headphones does nothing. Except (and this is where it gets weird) if I play something from my computer first using the headphones. Then I can play anything from the browser and hear it through the headphones as long as I don't plug them out. If I plug them out, the sound switches back to the internal speakers and trying to plug in the headphones again doesn't do anything. So I have to play something from my computer again with the headphones plugged in and then switch to my browser to again play everything through my headphones.

Accounts :: Logging Into Windows 8.1 Using MS Account?

Oct 25, 2013

Do I have to type password to log into windows each time that I'm using a 8.1 MS account?

I used to rely on skydrive a LOT, but now it seems like:

1) You need to login via a MS account to use skydrive.

2) You need to type your password to your MS account each time you login to windows.

Accounts :: Logging Into Windows 8.1 Account - Password Incorrect

Nov 10, 2013

I got an issue with my logging Windows 8.1 account. When I log in it tells me that my password is incorrect and I should go to and I did. But when I change my password it tells me the same thing like it haven't even change nothing. I try using my Windows 8 CD that I have and I did an automatic repair and it tells me this.

"Log File E:WINDOWSSystem32LogfileSrtSrtTrail.txt"

At that point I try to change my way of solving this and I went to system restore. I choose the date time I want it to restore my system to see if that fixed anything, but nothing still. I know it has to be with my password or something with my account which is odd, because I never had to link my microsoft account with my PC (if that is the case) But at this point I am again clueless. I even try pressing the F8 when I restart my system to being able to access my computer in a safe mode but it doesn't do a thing.

Accounts :: Windows 8 - Move User Profile To HDD

Jul 28, 2013

I built a new PC to be used primarily for gaming purposes, so I installed Windows 8 Pro onto 128GB SSD. I wanted to move my User profile to my HDD, and followed the directions posted here: User Profiles - Relocate to another Partition or Disk

After doing this and exiting Audit mode, Windows acted as if I had were installing the OS and wanted a product key. I skipped this step, went through the configuration, but when I used my email for my Windows account, it says that a user is already using that account on my PC. Obviously, because I had been using my computer earlier today. So since it knows there is a user with that account, why can't I access it when I start my computer? A friend of mine says I may have installed Windows twice on accident, but he isn't sure.

Accounts :: Cannot Get Profile To Reliably Sync To New Devices

Jun 28, 2013

I can't seem to get my profile to reliably sync to new devices or when I've tried clean installs on my main system. I have all settings checked to sync and the PCs are all trusted devices. Sometimes it will sync the desktop background and my profile picture, others it may sync some of my explorer settings. Sometimes it may not sync anything at all. My homegroup on any other devices also gets renamed to "winliveid_000" instead of the usual "" I've yet to figure out why this happens as well. I've tried deleting the data and trying again, all with the same result.

This has honestly all been an issue ever since I've installed Windows 8 and I'm starting to dislike the profile sync altogether. If it cannot reliably sync my data and all of it, I don't understand it's usefulness. I've also run the account troubleshooting tool, which gives a cryptic message saying "The following settings are turning sync off: Personalization." It gives no further details that I can see or look into and all settings are on. I've taken a look at Windows 8.1 and it seems that you have no choice but to initially use your Microsoft account to sign in, which is troubling. If it cannot be fixed, I may have to delete my synced profile online every time I try to reinstall my main system.

Accounts :: User Profile Service Failed Logon

Mar 15, 2014

For some reason my computer loads slowly. I log in then black screen with mouse only can be seen. it takes <10 seconds for explorer.exe to appear. I searched for fix and found that it can be fixed by creating new profile. So, I went ahead and created profile. Logged off my current one and find this error when trying to load the new one. "User Profile Service service failed the logon. User profile cannot be loaded".

I then ran sfc /scannow command in Administrator command prompt. It found few files but was unable to repair them. Unfortunately I cannot open log because I have access denied popping up (was working before).

Accounts :: Windows 8 Image - Copying / Modifying Default Profile

May 3, 2013

I'm trying to set up a Windows 8 image. I want to edit the default profile so that when a new user signs on, they have the settings that I choose. In Windows 7 Pro, we could log on with a dummy account, edit the profile how we wanted it, then just copy and paste the information into the Default User Profile. With 8, when we do this, it doesn't always work. Most of the time, once it's on the domain, domain users cannot sign in. Or when they do sign in, the Metro tiles don't work. Any good way to edit and set up the default profile?

Accounts :: Windows 8 PC - User Profile Service Failed Sign In

Apr 28, 2013

The User Profile Service service failed the sign-in. User profile cannot be loaded. (Window 8)

Today when I tried to use my laptop, I got an error when attempting to log on with my profile. It states:

"The User Profile Service service failed the sign-in. User profile cannot be loaded."

I am using a different PC right now, of course. I had Googled the error, but none of the solutions (thus far) will work in my predicament. It is a Windows 8 PC, so I cannot access the system BIOS in order to perform a system restore, cause unfortunately, it goes straight to the log on screen(Which is become SOLID BLANK COLOR). I don't have a second profile on the system, either. I can't find any way to access the BIOS, Settings, Admin. Profile, or anything.

(SOLID BLANK COLOR) the back ground image for the log in screen is a solid color and not an actual image, anymore.

I can't access the start menu to open the CMD, because I cannot log into my profile and there is no other profile on the PC, besides Administrator ... Which is, unfortunately, hidden. I cannot make it visible, because I'd have to log in to accomplish such a task ...

The problem is not that I am incompetent and cannot conjure a new profile or complete simple tasks on a computer. My predicament seems to be that I cannot access anything. I need to log onto my profile in order to reach the CMD, or any other settings for that matter. Unless there's some, very well hidden, way to run CMD from the log in screen. I know that there is a minuscule detail that I am overlooking, but I cannot find it.

If there's any way to access CMD, BIOS, or anything at the log in screen.

When I opened mu laptop (I'm using ASUS) = Its going STRAIGHT to the BLANK SOLID Screen and There's that. Nothing.... I cannot find anyway how to log in using safe mode and try anyway boot using f1 or anything....

IMPORTANT Problem: didnt's have a cd Windows 8, just found out this problem, didnt even made another account... and other PC is using win7...

Accounts :: The User Profile Service Failed Sign In - Cannot Be Loaded

Accounts :: Move User Profile By Windows Easy Transfer Wizard

Nov 4, 2013

It looks like this PC can't run Windows 8.1. This might be because the Users or Program Files folder is being redirected to another partition."

By using the Customize feature of Windows Easy Transfer Wizard, I created a MIG transfer file, without selecting the user folders (such as Documents, Pictures or Video).

If the MIG file is copied to the C: drive, will the User Profile be created on the C: drive, when Easy Transfer is run?

I am guessing that the default User Folders will be created on the C drive, and then the locations can be changed to match the present physical location on my other partitions.

Accounts :: New User Cannot Login (user Profile Service Failed)

Jun 3, 2014

I am trying to add a second account to my machine and whether I try a Local or Microsoft account, I get the same "User Profile Service failed the sign-in. User profile cannot be loaded" error every time I try to sign in for the first time. I've Googled this a bit and it seems everything I've found yet (except one) has been with logging in to existing profiles. For the one that was with a new profile, the solution didn't work.

I tried deleting all files similar to the specified one (file in C:UsersDefaultAppDataLocalMicrosoftVSCommon12.0SQM with name of "sqmdata-####-###-#####.sqm"), but that had no effect. I'm guessing this is because I have VS2013 installed, as this happens with my laptop as well. I don't want to delete my profile, I have important (and large) data in my documents folder that I don't want to lose. I'm guessing this will have to do with messing with the registry, but I don't know where to begin.

Windows 8 Keeps Signing Admin User Into Temporary Account?

Mar 6, 2013

I've had my Windows 8 computer for several months... it's been working really well, absolutely no problems.

But today... when I turned on my computer... I signed into my account like always (the only admin account on the computer)... and it keeps signing me into a temporary profile instead.

A balloon pops up in the corner, telling me it's a temporary account and to try again later or something.

I restarted the computer about five times... but still... it takes me to a temporary account, rather than my real account.

Maintenance :: Windows 8 - Temporary Freezes And Occasional (Not Responding) Messages

Mar 3, 2013

Temporary freezes and occasional "not responding" messages are not often seen in Windows 8, but occur much more frequently than they do in W7. Same hardware, same software. Only the drives and a few drivers differ.

These hesitations arise in various programs or while manipulating UI options, and have since the earliest Windows 8 betas, though they have become less frequent with each release. No forum messages that I have come across relate specifically to this random issue.

Additionally, Windows 8 is a multitasking slug as contrasted to W7 when, for example, a large file is downloading in the background. Open another program in W7 and it pops up almost immediately; open in Windows 8 and it takes 15-30'. Priority has been assigned to both "programs" and "background services." Made no difference.

2600 Intel CPU, ASUS P8P67le MB, NVidia 210 GPU, at least 28G free space on each drive.

How to overcome it?
