Problem with startup, applications do not load

Q: Problem with startup, applications do not load

Hello there! I appear to be having a problem with applications not loading when I start the PC. It happens every now and then, and I am forced to reboot until I can eventually load the program. When I check the program in task manager, it appears to only load about 108K-124K within memory, then stops. When this happens, I can no longer run any program. I am at my wits end! Many thanks in advance for any help I may receive.

A: Problem with startup, applications do not load

Hello Beauedwards, Welcome to SF!

Can you give us a bit more to go on? What program? When it "stops"... what happens exactly? Does your whole pc freeze? Do you get a BSOD (Blue Screen of Death... which means your PC doesn't like you any more and it quits on you with a (most of the time) blue screen)

How quickly after booting do you try this program? How up-to-date are you with W7 updates?
W7 64b on a 2G machine is sure to test your patience anyway but let's see what is really happening...

I'm having a rather strange problem. I shutdown my computer earlier. No issues. I just went to restart and now am experiencing some issues.

The computer loads up and starts to load Windows, just at the point where the black screen appears and my desktop would normally appear...nothing happens. The computer sounds like its trying to load revs up and then dies and then revs again. It seems like it would do this ad-nauseum if I didn't try to restart again.

Is this an issue with the processor? Windows? I have tried restarting several times. Thanks for any advice.

Hey During the startup phase of windows my computer freezes. I think one of my programs/applications is doing it and I would like to disable the startup programs so I my computer won't freeze. However I can't disable it through windows obviously since it freezes on startup. I have a Dell XPS 1330 and I can get into a command prompt screen. What can I do to disable my startup applications? (oh and my safe mode doesn't work)

A:Big Vista Problem - Scvhost.exe Error And Explorer.exe Will Not Load At Startup

Have you installed updated drivers for your system? This would include any chipset/mobo drivers, SATA drivers, video drivers, etc? Without them performance will be flakey at best.In particular, try the scan at (using IE) and see what it finds out. Then look for those drivers to update (for example, my system still needs Intel drivers for the controllers on my system - but none are available).If you can't find Vista drivers, try XP drivers in compatibility mode and Run as Administrator. But, I wouldn't update them with the XP drivers unless you have a known issue with that particular piece of hardware.Check your Device Manager and Event Viewer for signs about what needs to be updated.

Hello. I have windows xp pro. I have 1GB of SDRAM on 2.66 Pentium PC computer.

When I open up just a few graphics programs and a few browsers, Windows won't allow me to do anything else. Menus fail to load on right click, I can't open any new browsers or applications, can't copy or paste text etc. I have to shut down a couple browsers or close a graphics program to continue.

I look at Task Manager and I'm running at 10% CPU usage with about 200MB still available in Physical Memory. WHy can't I open up more than just a few applications?

Please help - it's totally slowing me down and getting frustrating.

A:can't load more than a few applications

I've got a few questions for you so that I can narrow down the problem:

1. What programs are you trying to use at the same time?

2. When did the problem begin manifesting itself? Do you recall it happening
after you installed a certain piece of software?

3. When you try to open the programs that don't respond, does it give you any error messages, or does it just act like it's not doing anything?

4. Was any new hardware added when you noticed the problem running multiple problems?

5. Do you get any error messages?

If you can figure out approximately when the problem started, you may be able to use your System Restore to revert your system back to the point before the problem started. There may be two particular programs that your using that may conflict with eachother.

Hello -

I have intermittent episodes of applications failing to load.

On some nights my computer works perfectly fine, I can surf the net without incident, open applications, play games etc and everything appears to be fine.

Then there are the other nights (which are increasing in frequency) where the computer boots up fine but then I run into application after application which refuses to load - I will click on the application and the "loading" icon will appear on screen and then just stay there.

The only way out is to cntrl-alt-delete and bring up task manager, but this can also then refuse to either load or - if it does - will not respond when I click on the first offending application in an attempt to close that down.

I also noticed on the last few nights that when trying to start a particular game clicking on the icon would appear to have activated nothing - yet when I attempted to start it again I would get a message saying that I couldn't start the game until the one I had running had been shut down - but nothing appeared to be running.

My computer was built in January of this year. I have regularly run disk cleanups etc and run virus checks at least once a week and nothing shows up.

I could wear this after five or so years of running the thing, but it all seems a little odd after only five or so months.

Hello klink1956 and welcome to the BC HijackThis forum. I see no signs of viruses or malware in the log. It is clean.

For performance issues I would suggest posting a question in the XP forum and have them do a deeper check for what processes are using the most resources. Sometimes a program might have a runaway process and everything stops until it finishes running. Let them know that you have been to this forum and no malware was found.

I have a weird situation: Just a normal day working on my pc while it messages me, system rebooting. It reboots without any errors. I log back into my system, everything seems fine. I notticed on my taskbar none of my applications loaded. Usually, MSN, my vid card, winamp...icons are loaded up and icons are in taskbar but not there!

I performed many actions to no avail.
System restore, safemode boot, selective services boot, sfc /scannow and so on.
I checked in Event viewer and see 5-6 service that did not responde to the start or control in a timely fashion.
Ex: acrobat, asus, bonjour, apple....

Got one I dint like:
The server {06622D85-6856-4460-8DE1-A81921B41C4B} did not register with DCOM within the required timeout.

When i click on any applications mostly non-MS apps nothing happens. Not even the services starts up in task man. I tried to open the service lets say, Steam client and get the Timeout error right away.

Hope someone got ideas! Thank you guys :O)

Hello: I have been directed here by "Budapest" from "Bleeping computer". Topic referenced is here: ~ OB I have the following problem with my computer. When I start my computer and try to access various programs (eg: Canoe, my internet search engine), I keep getting pop up boxes which state that certain applications have failed to load. By continually clicking on "ok" in these pop up boxes I eventually am able to move along. However, this process is quite tedious and time consuming and eventually leads to a situation where the program I am in stops running (will not respond). The common thread here is that in every box the application fails to load because "mskxgjps.dll was not found". Any advice/help you could give me would be great.

This is quite the weird problem. Basically I have this windows xp machine that, when you click on an application, just "hangs" and then never loads the app. The hour glass will appear, and then go away.

I believe it's being caused by SVCHOST which is at 99% cpu.

I checked for viruses, spyware, the like (sometimes it loads apps) and there was nothing, so I wiped the machine.

It does the same thing on a brand new install. I've considered a network virus, but I put SP2 on it before making it network aware, AND I'm behind 2 firewalls, so that's pretty much impossible. There's only 2 other machines on the network (the one I'm on now, which is clean, and a mac).

It doesn't appear to happen in safe mode, so I think it might be a driver issue.

Also, I changed the ram and that didn't help.

Any ideas as to why this is happening would help. There's nothing in the event viewer.


Some weird things to note: I have 2 automatic update processes.

The SVCHOST we are talking about is tied to automatic updates, network, etc.

I hate computers.

Help! I've had this computer for about two years and experienced no problems. Several weeks ago, files and applications started opening very slowly: after clicking on a file name, it takes 30 seconds or so to open the file. Once it's open, everything works fine. Same thing with opening JPG or AVI files. Even right-clicking takes that long to open the window to view properties. No problems with Internet--everything loads smoothly. I run AVG antivirus and Spy Sweeper, and no problems reported. Opening files on a networked computer through My Network Places has the same results, although that computer is bug free as of now.

Please note this is pulled and edited from my question on yahoo answers which has proved to be utterly useless to provide me with any decent help.

I will also say I'm pretty bad when it comes to computers so if any answers could be done in the way you explain stuff to a child that would be great as I will get lost with technical speak.

Right here's my problem this has happened over a few days and I've lost count of the things I've tried but it should be in order of whats happened.

For the last few days my computer has periodically stopped opening new internet browser (chrome) tabs and after this starts happening it also won't open any applications either until it is restarted.

If I try to open the browser again or any application I can see in the task manager the RAM use creeping up slowly until it opens but then whatever opened crashes or stops responding.

It is also very slow to shut down or restart when this happens.

After trying many different things I have managed to install Firefox and delete Chrome and now the internet is stable and no longer crashing/not responding but it seems other problems have arisen.

The biggest problem I can find at the moment is whenever I click on a application it will take a very long time to load 5mins plus the same goes for anything like the task manager or the volume controls, network and sharing center est.

It is also still slow at shutting down and takes about 3-4 mins to boot up fully if that is helpful info.

If it is not a virus or malware the only other thing I can think of is check and make sure your processor fan is running and that nothing else is overheating. I used to be a programmer but not a system or hardware person.

I have the same problem. The loading of programs into the system tray 'pauses' for 1-2 minutes before everything continues normally. During the pause other programs can be run from the desktop but nothing can be accessed via the taskbar or system tray (hourglass icon appears when cursor is over sys tray & taskbar). This has only started in the last week. I have removed all programs i have installed after the problem started but it has made no difference. The PC has XP sp2.
Most times it pauses with Norton AV loaded but disabled (red cross) but this is not always the case. And NAV is always enabled when the pause ends.

Hi bax and welcome to TSG,

I have split your post off into a thread of its own. It's not a good idea to tack onto an existing post as you may get overlooked.

Please do this. Click here: to download Hijack This.

It’s very important that you save it to its own folder on your hard drive, such as program files (not temporary files or the desktop), so that it can create proper back-ups and be able to restore them if necessary.

Close all open windows and open Hijack This. Click “Scan”. When the scan is finished (it only takes a second), the scan button will change to “Save Log”. Click on “Save Log” and then save it to NotePad. Click on “Edit” – “Select all” – “copy” and then “paste” into the thread.

DO NOT FIX ANYTHING YET, most items that appear in the log are harmless or even needed.

Hi there, this has only started recently and i am unsure why.

After i login (which happens automatically) Windows XP loads the sound deelie, and the desktop and then appears that the startbar / explorer freezes for a long period of time.

At this stage i only have 18 processes running, which is 10 or so less than i usually do ^^;;

After a 2 or so minute wait everything just comes out of it's coma and starts running fine.
This is incredibly annoying, and if anyone has any solutions, please let me know!!

Cheers. Thanks for your help.

I started my laptop up this morning and the desktop loaded, the internet connection icon was displaying the "loading icon" and the audio icon had an "X" on it. I tried opening up task manager, but it never loaded up. Same goes for firefox, control panel, and general windows.
I ran safe mode and it was working fine, and I tried a system restore since I downloaded Java 64 bit 2 days ago, but it still freezes on the desktop. I'm not that experienced with the advanced technical software side of computers, but I'm not hopeless, so I guess I can try to fix it with some guidance and feedback

Hello JP, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Since it works properly in Safe Mode, you could use the tutorial below to troubleshoot with a clean startup to see if it may help ID the cause of this. Otherwise, you could try using an older restore point.

Just need some advice, cause I'm not exactly sure what is causing the problem, so let me begin:

I'm am using Windows 2000, everything works fine, but when opening up MS Word, nothing appears. Normally a blank document would appear, but all you see is the title bar and nothing else. It never opens. So by hitting control alt delete, an error message appears when trying to end the program, it says "this program can not be closed. If it is debugged, please resume or close debugger first." However it is not in debug mode. The same thing occurs when opening up other programs, such as adaware, they never seem to open and then ctrl alt delete comes up with that error message. Does anyone have an idea what is wrong. Please help.

This is very weird, I have absolutely no idea what to do. Any ideas are very welcome.

When the computer is connected to the office network, many applications load very slowly. It takes 30-60 seconds for the applications to become visible or responsive. When I unplug the network cable, the same applications load normally (<5 seconds). Some of these applications do not even connect to the internet!

What's more, it seems that only applications that use OpenGL behave this way. I came to this conclusion when I noticed that Mathcad works perfectly if you don't use 3D plots; when you insert a 3D plot, the entire application hangs for 30 seconds or so. This made me go check all installed programs, and it seems that only the ones which use OpenGL experience this strange behavior.

I have updated the graphic card and monitor drivers, installed all Windows updates, I even tried some OpenGL diagnostic tools, nothing fixed this, not even detected a problem.

For the last few days my laptop has been experiencing a few issues.
First off, I get application error messages for cmd.exe and csc.exe on startup. There was also a similar message for something like GoogleUpdateHandler, but that hasn't shown up during the last few startups.
A number of other programs won't start correctly e.g. if I try and open Internet Explorer I get the following message "The application was unable to start correctly (0xc0000142). Click OK to close the application". Minesweeper also suffers a similar issue when I try to open it.
And within Firefox it seems to struggle with certain pages loading and constantly hangs for ages before saying a script on the page is unresponsive.
I haven't installed or uninstalled anything notable in the last few days, but God knows something could have come/left my laptop which is causing the issues.

If I press Start - All Programs, I don't get a listing of all my programs as I used to. It's therefore very awkward to open a program for which I don't have a shortcut on the desktop.

A:[SOLVED] stopping run at startup applications

Hello sluggo123

You have to uncheck them in msconfig

1. Click on the Vista start icon in the bottom left corner of your screen.

2. Type MSCONFIG in the search box and then either press enter on your keyboard or double-click on the MSCONFIG program that appears in the search results.

3. Vista will ask you for permission to continue. You may see a box asking you to key in your computer's administrator user name and password.
Or, if you're already logged into Vista as an administrator, you may see a box asking you if you would like to continue.
Either way, follow the on-screen prompts to give Vista permission to continue.

4. Microsoft's System Configuration Utility will launch.
Click on the Startup tab.

Keep the page open then go to one of the links below.

Read the Key at top of page. Use the Search box to check all your entries.
It will tell you what all the entries are and whether you can disable them or not. It will also identify any malware. Disable everything which is not needed to run at start up

When you reboot you will get a message saying you have started in "Selective Startup" Click "Don`t show this message again" then OK

Hello Everyone

I have an XP SP2 (fully patched) laptop that I use at home and at work. When at work it is connected to the LAN via 100 MEG ethernet. When at home I connect it via an NTL 1MB broadband internet connection.

When I use my computer at home and unlike at work, all applications (launched either from the quick launch or from desktop or from the Start menu) take up to 2 minutes to open. After this initial delay everything returns to normal.

I'm not sure what is causing this or what the computer is doing when it occurs. Checking Task Manager gives no clues, no excessive memory or processor use and most of the time while they are opening is spent on System Idle Process.
These problems disappear when I disconnect my computer from the internet. It has got to the stage that if I want to open a new application it is quicker to remove the cable, let the application open at normal speed and then reconnect and negotiate a new DHCP address which sometime takes ages to be completed!

I check my system every day for any spyware or virus using ad-aware, spybot, I also run norton anti-virus 2005 everyday. All the above tools report my system is free from spyware and virus. I also check my internet security using norton's online security check. It reports my system is secure.

I have just removed the NTL netguard, but with no improvement

Any help please
Many thanks

i believe this is bs. im not computer illiterate, i am running windows xp, I do know that MCCI is usually associated with wireless net or things of that nature, i am running bellsouth internet.

and I have read that trojans and other spyware sometimes camo themselves... i believe i downloaded some sort of banner maker application earlier this morning, a couple. im not sure.

bottom line is, when my main production sequencer Cubase SX3 opens, and I open a project file, it locks up.

Hi guys,
I have decided to use a combination of cloud backup and sync services to backup my documents, music, photos, videos, etc. As I will have to use a lot of different cloud services (and each consumes RAM and CPU), I don't want all of them to be active at the same time.
I was wondering how to automatically start one service, say dropbox, when the PC starts. It should then sync one item (say my documents) until everything is up to date. After that, it will close and another application like sugarsync will start and sync until up to date. I want to do this continuously for many applications.
I am also going to use either boxcryptor or truecrypt to encrypt my data, and I think that these encryption services must be on before the cloud services turn on.
How can I do this for Windows 7? If I need to create a .bat file for this, what's the code and how can I get it to work on startup? 
Thanks a lot , I know that this is a tall order!

This is a problem on a Windows XP SP2 system with 1GB RAM and plenty of disk space. OS seems to run fine.

In any application (most seen in Word) it takes several minutes from clicking an action, for example, Print, or Resize font, or Change font, until anything actually happens. Example, highlight a word, click the drop-down to change the font size, and wait about 50 - 60 seconds for the drop-down list to appear. After first time, things work OK, except for printing which still takes over one minute before a document will print.

Have also tested this in Winword and Notepad, with same results, so it's not an Office applications problem.

All help appreciated

My HP laptop with Intel I 7 chip is running Windows 7 64 bit.  The computer fan was racing and I was getting critical errors with the core temp approaching 210 degrees on cores 3, then 4, then 1. I ran anti Malwarebytes and it found 13 adwares which
I removed.  Upon restarting when I tried to clik on any icons on my desktop or in my taskbar nothing happened.  I tried rebooting but this did not fix the issue.  I tried several attempts of system restore and sometimes would get a black screen
after restarting. I undid the system restore and in safe mode tried to find Windows errors but it said it found none.
What is causing this and how can I fix this without doing a full System recovery.

My computer was just hit with malware identified by my Trend Micro as BKDR_CYCBOTSM3. It was successufully detected and quarantined. However, my computer was still acting funny so I decided to tinker around and see if there are some undetected strands of malware on my PC. I use autoruns to check and see if there were any unusual running proccesses. I was able to identify a few but one really stand out - lsdelete.exe; I compared it with my other Windows XP machines autorun procces and it was not there so I decided to delete it. After rebooting my computer, explorer.exe won't load at start-up anymore. I tried forcing it to load by using run. However all I'am getting is an error saying - "windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access this item".

I tried using a different account and got the same problem. I tried logging in safe mode w/ network and explorer.exe loaded just fine. So I decided to check the registry for ...HKLM/Software/Microsoft/WindowsNT/CurrentVerion/WinLogon and it shows the correct entries (I compared it with my working windows and they're identical). As another test, I rebooted the computer to normal mode and used procexp to see if there are any foreign process running that would stop explorer.exe from loading but found none.

My girlfriend recently bought a new laptop from DELL (Studio 15) w/an i7 processor/4GB RAM/64bit Windows 7 ultimate.

Anyways, she really doesn't do anything on her computer (definitely doesn't need that kind of computer) and only has these programs installed:

Mozilla FireFox (I use)
Google Chrome (She uses)
Verizon Wireless Internet Program
AOL Instant Messenger
FrostWire (I hate it, too)
Internet Explorer (Neither of us use)
Anyways, nearly all of those have icons on the desktop and about 50% of the time, when she turns on her computer, either they're all white or none of them show up, at all. She doesn't have to reboot for them to show again, all she has to do is logout and log back in. Although, that is rather tedious to do nearly every time that she turns on her computer.

Hi, I have tried searching for a answer, but I have had no luck.

On my desktop, my startup items are no longer loading when I boot up the computer. What happened is, I have a desktop and laptop that are winXP and I decided to remove mcafee from the laptop and try AVG anti virus(free). AVG worked out great on laptop, so I decided to put it on desktop also. Now, when I boot up the desktop the startup items that use to load no longer do. Not even the AVG anti virus.

Here is what I did on laptop:
a. add/remove programs and removed mcafee.
b. ran MCPR by mcafee to clean all of mcafee out.
c. installed AVG, latest free from cnet.

All is good on laptop and after many reboots to test, all startup items I have load up and are on bottom task bar.

did the same on desktop, but no startup items. I have looked at msconfig and the items are still checked on the startup tab. Everything to me looks the same on the desktop as it does on the laptop. Could I have somehow messed up the registry on the desktop.

Thanks for any help.
EDIT: I have discovered that this only happens on a system bootup. If I boot up, then log off, and log back on, then all startup items load up fine. I only have this desktop setup for one user (me).
Any ideas?

A:Cd/dvd Drivers Will Not Load At Startup, Help!

Does your laptop include one of those horrendous manufacturer-created "recovery partitions"? Because manufacturers are so cheap, nowadays, many of them don't include any physical media with the PC. Rather, they create a proprietary image of what used to be an actual "recovery CD/DVD" and save it to an "invisible" partition, usually situated immediately before what Windows marks the C: drive.

I'm not sure that it's relevant; I'm just curious. I have had problems with drives/letter assignments due to these manufacturer-supplied recovery partitions.

Good evening:

I have a very troublesome problem concerning a customer's laptop and her USB mouse and other USB devices.

Basically, WindowsXP does not load the USB devices when starting up. If the mouse is plugged into the USB port when the computer boots and Windows XP loads, it is not recognized. There are no "unknown devices" in the device manager concerning the mouse, and it is unresponsive. This is the same symptom of my thumb drive and her IPOD.

Interestingly enough, the optical mouse (not wireless) does have power as it is lit up during POST screens, however, it shuts off when Windows loads. To use the device, we have to unplug them from the USB port and plug them back in. At this point, Windows will recognize the device is present and allow us to use it.

The USB emulation settings in the BIOS were turned off, I've switched them to "on" and still have no luck with this.

I cannot recall the specific model of the computer, but I do know it is of the Toshiba Satellite series if this makes any difference.

Thank you for any assistance on this as I've beat my head against a wall with this for about 5 or 6 hours and would appreciate about any suggestions (even if it includes beating the laptop against the wall).

My computer froze, as it's done before and so was turned off at the power button. On start up, initially it said "Operating Server Not found". On restart again, I have the option to run Startup Repair, or Load Windows Normally. Starting normally has me on the "Starting Windows" screen for, well, ever; and Startup repair gets past the file loading, displays a mouse and blue-plantish background but never loads the dialogue box.

I've actually been in this situation before, but start up always loaded after restarting 6 or 7 times. It's been 20+ this time and there's no sign of it.

A:Computer will not load during startup.

Hey there,

This could be a possiable of two issues.

If it's simply an issue with one of your files, you can first attempt to press F8 over and over during bootup, go to "Use Last Known Good Config". See if that'll boot up, if not, you can try to use System Restore. To use System Restore, Again, use F8 over and over, and this time and go into "Safe Mode With Cmd" (I am using short hand, hopefully, you understand it). Once in Cmd, type in "%systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe" and attempt to go back to a pervious state.

If it is an infection, you can try and use a Live Antivirus CD to clean up the infection first, afterwords, doing a system Restore with the methons I listed above.

Hope this helps,

Press that, save the log somewhere, and please copy & paste its contents to the forum.

I've done the automatic startup checker twice using the vista installation disk, it says there aren't any problems. is there anyway to just replace this fltmgr.sys from another vista machine? Or am I just stuck?

there has to be some kind of fix! thanks!

looking through the startup recovery log I found this:

Click the Advanced tab.
Under Startup and Recovery, click Settings to open the Startup and Recovery dialog box.
Clear the Automatically restart check box, and click OK the necessary number of times.
Restart your computer for the settings to take effect.

Anyone have any idea what could be going on? When I start my computer or bring it out of sleep, I have to wait 2 minutes before Chrome will load Google, Facebook, Bank of America and some others.

I've attached the error message I get.

This isn't the end of the world and I've been dealing with it forever, but does anyone have any idea what's going on?

Hi all,

I've had this problem for months & its only now i want to get it fixed after cleaning up my registry thinking that it would fix it but it didn't!

Every time i switch on my pc, explorer won't properly load up & all that i can see is the background wallpaper. In order to fix this this i have to log off then back on again - sometimes i have to do this 3 times in order for it to start up the right way!

I'm on Windows xp & the pc is about 6/7 years old. I think its giving me the signs of it on its last legs!?

Anyway know a solution

I'd like to get Windows to load a web page at startup I know that in the "Hosts" file you can assign a domain name with a IP, but how do you tell Windows to download the page at startup? I've heard you can do this, but haven't been able to figure it out.

A:Help: How to load a web page at startup[Windows}

Create a shortcut on your desktop with the following command
"C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe"

Change google to the page you want

Test it, then drag it into your Startup folder.

I have a Sony Viao with Win 7 Home Premium and I just deleted some form of Trojan with MS Security Essentials and then I ran windows updates before I restarted the machine. Windows update installed some security updates along with Service pack 1 and IE9. Now the computer will not load Windows. It goes straight to the startup repair but cannot fix the problem. There is not restore points other that when SP1 was installed and I gives an error every time I try to restore it. I can get to a command prompt and I have tried to run sfc /scannow but it tells me there is a system repair pending which requires a reboot and then does nothing. I also tried check disk(just as a last chance) but that didn't do anything. Is there any other way that I can repair windows without re-installing windows?

A:Windows will not load/Startup repair cannot fix

I got a system restore error code of (0x8000ffff).

Hi Guys,

I hope you can help me out on this, as I am not so much into setting up my XP.

Problem is I have this "load line" before my XP loads which is very uncommon, prior to this, I got my OS corrupted so I had to reinstall.

1) Blank Screen (a few seconds)
2) A load line (similar to |||||||||| appears) then loads
3) XP then opens

While the xp, when running is ok, when I boot up, it seems that it is a little bit slower than before.

Just to note also that my hard drive is very healthy. (if it would help)

It may be that I did something wrong, just to be sure I attached a screenshot that I hope could help.

I look forward to your expert advises

Please help! The screen goes blank and the system hangs after the black boot screen but before the blue "Windows is starting up" screen. When I push the on/off button I can restart into safe mode, but restarting from there gets me back to square one. Things I've tried:

1. Playing around in safe mode with msconfig. I tried skipping win.ini, system.ini and loading only WinXP services. No go.

2. Using the Recovery Console to boot into msdos. From there I ran a chkdsk /r and then did a fixboot. No go.

3. Pulling the plug with the machine still on. No go.

4. Banging my head against a brick wall. No go.

If worst comes to worse, I'm prepared to transfer all my critical files to my (turtle-slow) laptop and do a clean install, but I'd rather not.

Does anyone have any idea what could be causing this and how to fix it? Many many pathetic thanks in advance.

A:OS won't load - blank screen on startup - please help

Hi and welcome to TSF

Have you tried 'Last Good Configuration' on your f8 key menu? (tap f8 from start up)

Failing that, try a 'System Restore'.
