  1. Thanks guys I'm not a pro at soldering but, I think I'm going to order some replacements and try replacing it.
  2. I have a motherboard that will not boot due to a dead cmos due to it not holding any bios settings as a result. Unfortunately it is not a cr2032 it's an old lithium block battery that appears to be directly soldered to the motherboard. Anyone have any ideas to work around this without having to solder the battery/motherboard? I am going to leave it on over lunch to see if it will charge up/hold a charge. You can see the CMOS battery in the second picture.
  3. Not sure I can do a traditional profile rebuild because that is typically done in a corporate setting in the personal setting there is no GUID or ProfileGUID folder in the registry.
  4. probably going to take all night to backup my C drive so I will give that a try tomorrow probably. Thanks.
  5. Maybe I can do a typical windows profile rebuild? such as is explained here https://community.spiceworks.com/how_to/121165-re-create-user-profile-windows the only thing not typical about it is I would be doing it from my laptop not my PC like you normally would.
  6. I was able to load the hive and find my profile in the registry from my gaming PC using my laptop but, there is not a profile duplicate with .bak at the end like I am seeing is normally the issue with the original error message "user profile service service failed the logon" So I am kind of stuck now not really sure what else I could try with adjusting the user profile, if anyone knows please help. I can't use the PC at all and planning on backing up the files from it to my external hard drive so not too worried about messing up the profile/windows install worse, if I do I will just reimage.
  7. I found a post on how to do that here: https://www.techwalla.com/articles/how-to-edit-the-registry-on-a-secondary-drive going to give that a try.
  8. If I plug in the drive to my laptop with an external driver read/writer would I be able to edit the registry on it that way?
  9. Yeah I was hoping to do that in safe mode but, can't seem to get past the login screen. That is the only profile I had created unfortunately .
  10. Don't really have any backups unfortunately. Do you mean just run a system check from bios or physically check the hardware?
  11. Hello All, I booted up my gaming/streaming PC like I do every morning when starting work from home and received and error message at my login screen "user profile service service failed the logon The user profile cannot be loaded". I am not sure whether this was a random occurrence or if my "friend" may have deleted my profile from my registry while I left my PC unlocked and unattended. Though, I did also receive a BSOD a few days ago and in computer management windows log files it showed as a system bugcheck. I ignored it unfortunately and only had the one profile on my system. I have attached some pictures of what my login screen looks like currently and the error message I got when trying to do a system restore to the only restore point I had available while in safe mode. I have tried all the troubleshooting I can think of and will probably need to reimage. Troubleshooting: I have been getting to the Windows recovery and troubleshooting options by holding shift when restarting from my broken login screen -trying the continue and exit to Windows Recovery option just loops back to the broken login screen -trying the use another operating system and selecting Windows Recover also goes back to the broken login screen -trying the "reset this PC" option and selecting keep my files failed with an error message and said that no changes were made -trying to system restore gave the error message attached in advanced options -trying start up repair was not able to resolve the problem -trying to uninstall updates both feature and quality seemed to run successfully but looped back to broken login again -trying to use "startup settings" to change to safe boot mode just restarted and went to the broken login screen didn't give me any options - trying to use Command Prompt opened CMD window and I ran "bcdedit /set {default} safeboot minimal" ran successfully - still just rebooted back to login after closing cmd window. Anyone have any suggestions before I try to save what I can from the Drive then reimage? Thanks! DeskRabbit
  12. WOW -Owen Wilson I was able to get into the bios reinstall/flash BIOS version F22 from flash drive. Then boot into windows on restart. I have never been so happy to see windows. lol Thanks for the assistance and chat! I am so happy
  13. UPDATE: I was played with the display cables a bit and actually got a POST. Not sure what is going on but, this is the furthest I have gotten since the BIOS flash. I cannot f2 or del to do anything like normal on the boot menu. Anyone know is there a safe mode option on this MB BIOS? Not seeing anything about it in the manual.
  14. Well still no response whatsoever when trying to power up after shorting those pins. I might be able return it still so that's a plus.
  15. I can give that a try but, right now there is seemingly no power going through it at all. I.E. no fans turning and no LED's etc. Should I still give it a try the same sort of way? @CharminUltraStrong Thank you.
