Hey xpain Seu!

Thank you for bringing this issue to the Help and Support Forum! Lets try to get you back onto the Fields of Justice as soon as possible!

If you are pressing the large glowing orange button that says "PLAY", but nothing happens afterwards (such as the Log-in Screen appearing), then this problem is most often caused by a failed self-patch of the patcher. Although we are working to resolve this issue there are a few known workarounds.

The first and most common solution is to force the patcher to repatch itself. You can do this by deleting this folder:
C:\Riot Games\League of Legends\RADS\projects\lol_launcher
If you chose a custom install path, the folder may be in a different location.

Many players also fixed this problem by disabling the UAC(Windows Vista and Win7 Only)
Here is a short guide to disabling the UAC: http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windo...windows-vista/
* Be sure to use the "Never notify me when:" setting

If after completing these steps and you are still encountering issues getting the Log-in Screen to appear, please do not hesitate to let me know by creating a new Support Ticket so we may work with you one-on-one until we arrive at a resolution!*

* Keep in mind that this advice was given based upon the information provided. If you would appreciate a further one-on-one interaction to solve this issue, make sure to send us a Support Ticket! You can send one from here: https://support.leagueoflegends.com/tickets/new Also, if you could please provide a link to this forum thread in the new ticket, it would be incredibly helpful!

You might also want to try doing a "repair" although this takes ages it might sort out your problem.

Sorry that happened in the beginning of a match

Thank you this fixed my problem. I'm not the OP though.
