you can go to safe mode to see if your user profile is even there at all. Restart yor computer and as soon as it turns off start consistently tapping the F8 key listed in the very top row of special function keys. There is a specific place where you can just tap it once and get to the windows advanced startup menu. So tap it F8 consisttently until you see windows advanced startup menu with several options to toggle to. You cannot use your mouse in this area so use the arrow keys to toggle to SAFE MODE and press enter. Then you might get a choice of operating systems to choose from and just choose the windows xp and press enter. Then you actually see all the driver files and other files loaded one by one. After you see a bund of multidisk (0) raid (0) stuff filling the screen you should get an option to log in to the Adminstrator account and any other account that is currently on the system. If you do not see your user profile in this area than I would have to say Sorry your profile is no longer there.
Hope this helps and you can find your profile and docs that go with it.
I have a Toshiba Satellite A50-S535G notebook, with a Pentium M processor 1.6Ghz and I've been using it for about a year now.
I powered up the notebook but it couldn't load my user profile! A dialogue box appeared and said the file was missing or corrupt and loaded a temporary profile that I'm now using to access the internet.
ALL my personal documents have disappeared! Can anybody tell me how I can recover my profile? I tried rebooting and logging out a couple times but to no avail! I'm the only one using this notebook. Can anyone help??!
