Applicable to Desktop PC as well as LAPTOP
If your system hangs about 5 or 10 minutes at Startup/Bootup
And if you can't access the Start button or the Taskbar, most oftenly one of the specific service (Background Intelligent Transfer) running in the background.

So please try this method, it is almost easy with no harm to PC.

  1. Click on Start 
  2. Open the Run window, 
  3. Type msconfig, then click 'OK'.
  4. Go to the Services tab, find the 'Background Intelligent Transfer' service.
  5. Disable it, apply the changes & reboot.
Next time you reboot the PC it will show System Configuration Utility window, place a Tick Mark in check box and then OK. SO that it would not appear again.
Also one more thing you can do Go to MSCONFIG and in the Startup Tab 
Disable the items which you think not necessary to come during startup.
THis will help you lot to reduce the time being taken in Startup.
Hope it will work for you.

i have problem with pc desktop dell opteplix 332 sound when u change sound setting my pm hungs up needs to restart OS is windows xp sp3


It sounds like you have a driver problem as you are using XP.

If you were to log on to the manufacturer's web site, I think you will be pleasantly surprised as usually one is able to download, by model number, Customer Instruction Manuals, list of Dealers for spare part supplies and Driver downloads (if applicable) as required.

The information is normally free of charge.

I hope this helps.

whatis the procedure to start audio function in hp DX 7380 PC after formating


After reformatting any computer, to receive full functionality, you need to install appropriate drivers for each device in the system. Your sound is one of these devices. You can download drivers for the HP Compaq dx7380 Microtower PC from HP's website:

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/DriverDownload.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodNameId=3360416&taskId=135&prodTypeId=12454&prodSeriesId=3360371&lang=en&cc=us&submit=Go%20%BB

Select your supported operating system, and search for your audio drivers. If applicable, you will probably want to install other drivers as well.

my speakers


is the drive for the speakers installed?

Check device manager. This can be done in Win XP by right clicking my computer, properties, hardware, then click device manager. Alternative way to enter device manager is by clicking start menu, control panel, system (performance and maintenance), hardware then device manager.

In the deice manager window see if any question marks or exclamation points are visible.

If so, see if it the mark is for an audio device.

If it is an audio device, uninstall the device.

Have the driver ready for the sound card by either a driver disk or by downloading the driver from the manufacturer website. This would be Dell, gateway, HP if you bought a name brand PC.

If this does not help, I need more details about your computer such as Vender, motherboard, and dedicated sound card if applicable.
