    Sign-in process initialization failure


    Message popped up (computer hadn't been used in several days, just noticed it when I was straightening up the desk it was on):


    Sign-in process initialization failure-

    Interactive sign-in process initialization has failed. (OK box)


    Facts:

    -Bought September 24, 2018

    -Preloaded with Windows 10 (no recovery disk in the package)

    -Mouse is locked out so cannot press 'OK' using it and no cursor present for use with the finger/key pad (pressing 'enter' has no effect)

    -Do not know how to get past this message to attempt any of the suggested start up repairs, clean boot, etc.



    Any suggestions?

    :)

  2. sign-in process initialization failure

    I have an Acer One

    Recently the system boots to the "sign-in process initialization failure" message and will not respond to any key strokes.

    I've tried booting using F2, F12, Del and may other keystrokes to no avail. I've tried booting with a Windows 10 boot disk and boot usb and get the same message. It appears to ignore the external boot drives.

    I removed the cables to the HDD and nothing happens while trying to boot. I thought this would force the system into the CMOS setup.

    I removed the battery for 1 hour and then tried but the system will not go into the CMOS setup no matter what I try.

    Does anyone have any suggestions? Help Please!

    Sign-in process initialization failure on logout


    Have you ever seen this?


    Sign-in process initialization failure [​IMG]


    "Interactive sign-in process initialization has failed" - this message box appears sometimes when I logout from a user account. It is very intermittent. And it feels like it usually happens when the system install is fresh, becoming more and more rare as the install "matures". I saw it happen on a fresh install of pre-1511 Windows 10 Pro. I saw it happen on a fresh install of post-1511 Windows 10 Pro.

    The message box pops up on black screen. It seems to be non-responsive at first (and there's no mouse pointer), but if one waits about 30 seconds it seems to come alive an allows one to dismiss it. The system then proceeds to the regular welcome screen and seems to work fine after that.

    Despite the suggestion to "check event log", there's nothing in the Event Log to directly tie to this matter.

    Originally I thought that this is a side effect of something I did during sysprep (relocation of 'Users' folder), but I just observed this very thing on a brand new Lenovo ThinkPad laptop that had nothing to do with me at all (and nothing is relocated on that laptop).

    This issue might be related to the well-known problem with OneDrive services crashing when user logs out (with corresponding entries in the Event Log), but that's just a guess.

    Is there any conclusive information about potential sources of this problem?
