Windows startup

Go to Run (either in your Start menu or by pressing the Windows key plus the R key) and type msconfig
Click on the Startup tab and uncheck everything (disable all button will do this quickly) then click ok and reboot. The next startup should be considerably quicker. I would also recommend running a virus scan with Malwarebytes free version. Also install CCleaner and run it. Also, go into Control Panel then Programs and Features, and uninstall anything that you are sure you dont need.

System problem if Hangs at Startup

Instruction applicable for all Window XP system, 
For Any Brand and Model PC, whether it is of DELL/HP or any brand .. 
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. 
Microsoft generally gives a patch for this but usually not work for in most of the cases
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.
With Best wishes Ellin Scott

If a power surge didn't fry the mobo or PS, this can work: Unplug the tower from the 110 outlet, wait a couple of minutes, then plug it in again. Also try that with the power strip; unplug.. press its reset button, plug it back in.

My HP DC7600 - get noisey when starting to plau games
Download and install and run this. You may want to go to the settings tab in the program and change it from metric. Then you can see the temperatures of everything in your computer. You can then launch the game and see what the temps do. It is common for fans to speed up when the computer senses large demand on the processor and graphics cards.

Click on the Start button, then type "services.msc" in the "run" dialog box and click OK.
in case of vista/win7 type it in "start & search" box(you can find it once you click on windows logo)....

Set as "Automatic" the startup type for:

Start up problem

Techguru2009: The startup fails to load because you have too many programs trying to start at the same time when you log on. To fix this problem you are going to sacrifice what programs you want to start up when you log on. first I asume you are using windows operating system. click the start button, click on run, type msconfig, press enter. Click on Startup tab. Uncheck the box for programs you do not want to start when you log on. Careful not to disable windows startup programs. Hope this helps.
