How to Decrease the Boot Time of My Computer/Laptop!!! Make My Computer Quicker!!!

This is a very exciting topic that I will be showing you. It is only known by a few and it can benifit all those that own a Computer/Laptop.

What we are going to do today is reduce the time that it takes to boot your computer, there are of course other befits that are attributible to this as well, such as a more responsive Computer/Laptop. Another is a computer system that can operate more effieciently and effectively this is simply done by reduceing the number of things that take use of your precious computer resources. Such as RAM and Processing power.

Before continuning I reccomend that you back up all your personal information. This is nothing new it should be done anyway as data can and does get lost, this can happen at any time. In which case you can smile as you backup your data all the time, ie regularly.

We begin the process by clicking the START on the Windows desktop.
Now Select RUN
Type msconfig into the field provided.
Click Ok

A screen like the one shown below will be displayed.

Don't worry if it is not set exactly the same as this one!!!

Notice the tabs on the top of this box!
You need to select the one named STARTUP.

It now displays all the processes that are selected to be loaded every time your computer is powered on, remember that each of these processes also needs to be closed by your computer when you power your computer off. Thats a lot of time that can be saved, getting you doing what you need to do quicker, whether it be to check the net or play a video, your PC will boot faster than before.

Things that you can unselect are applications that you don't need running from startup.

Use Google to see what each selected startup item is there for!!!
If it is a System process leave it SELECTED!!!
Unselecting an important startup item may result in failure so it is important to know which are safe to unselect and which are not. Use Google!!!

Keep your Anti-Virus selected as it must be running at all times!!!

Now you click Apply and then Ok.
You will then restart and a message will pop up.
When the message pops up all you need to do is select don't show again and then click ok.

Happy Computing!

i install mouse driver to my laptop and after that i restart it,but the problem it has no more display

By No more display do you mean it does not show the PC logo when you start or it shows the PC manufacturers logo and then goes into a no display mode? if the second part is true, restart the computer and keep tapping F8 key on the keyboard, and choose Last Known Good Configuration (if XP) this should return your computer settings to the last known settings when your computer was working fine.

PC connected to projector shows only in Blue

Are you saying that the projection is solid blue? Is it similar to, say, the desktop on the laptop screen? Try moving your mouse off to the right side of the laptop. Did it show up on projector? Exciting! Try dragging stuff over. Damn, this is sweet.
