Why do I get this message when tyring to log on. Your system is running low on resources. you can not log on as a new user. Please use an account that has already been logged on. No one is logged on. please HELP, very frustrating
I get the same error. I have two accounts set up on my Vista os. It will be on the home screen, no one will be logged on, although the switch user button is showing as if someone is logged on. If I click on an account I get the exact same error as above.
Then I can click "Ok" on the error which will then take me back to the home screen. Then if I click "Switch User" (even though no one is logged on), the screen will go blank for a few seconds. Then the home screen comes back up without the "Switch User" button.
Then I can log on just fine.
So I can get around it. It is just extremely annoying to have to do this every single time I log on.
What is your system? How much RAM do you have and how much is available? “control+alt+delete and select, “Start Task Manager” then go to the bottom of the windows and look for Processes and Physical Memory.
If more “stuff” is running than your computer can comfortably handle this problem can occur.
I have the same problem, but I think I know why. First off the laptop is fairly new so I know I do have plenty of memory/resources and only have 3 users. What I believe happens is when I log off and close the lid the latptop goes to sleep. But if I
close the lid too fast (before Windows finishes logging off) I get that message when I try to log on later. I tried that theory a couple times and that message popped up every time. If I wait until I am logged off and see all the users on the screen and
close the lid it no error comes up.
Can anyone from Microsoft verify that this could be the cause?
If the problem does not return while your computer is in clean boot mode, a background program is likely causing interference. You can try to determine which background program is causing the problem while the computer is in clean boot mode.
