Dll could not be opened at vista startup..what to do?

DLL file do not open. They assist by being part of a software installation. Try reinstalling software or disable in startup.

Go to Start > Run (search in Win 7) and type MSConfig. In Startup tab, uncheck anything that you don't want Windows to load automatically. It will make Windows boot faster and use less resources while running. This just disables them in startup. Programs will still load, but when only you initiate.

Hi,the webcam works fine with other apps,but when I try to us it with skype,it tells me that the cam is being used by another app,but it is not.

You may have programs like MSN messenger running from startup, this may be whats using the webcam when you dont realise it.
Stop all unneeded programs from loading at bootup.
You can use CCleaner/startup to do this or msconfig in windows (run/msconfig/startup folder)

I have an hp compaq nx4800 laptop which diplats ounce on booting and then off,i dont its problem

try to go in safe mode or choose last known good configration 

In safe mode, go to start->run, type in msconfig, and the system configuration window will come up.

First, try clicking on startup and say disable all, then say apply. Try restarting your computer and loading it normally, and see if it lets you get anywhere. If it does, you can go back into msconfig and start enabling startup items again until you find the one that is messing you up.

If that didn't work, try going back into msconfig, keep all the startup items disabled, and click on the services tab. check the box saying hide all microsoft services, then click on disable all, and hit apply. Try restarting into Windows normally again, if it works, then again, you have to figure out which service/startup items are affecting your boot up.

If that didn't work either, then you may have a graphics card issue. Where does it stop when you try to load Windows normally?

At start up a window appears labeled aiosoftwarenpi

Click Start>Run (if you see Run), type msconfig, hit enter, click on Startup tab, look for "aiosoftwarenpi" in one of the columns and UNcheck the box if you do NOT want your HP All-In-One printer support program to run at startup. This may disable some features of your printer.

On startup I get a windows installer message that my HP Product Assistant is needing me to insert a disk. I have had this computer for 3 years and this just started. It is interrupting downloads, etc.

You must have a HP Printer. HP Product Assistant is not a necessary program.
Go to Start > Run. Type msconfig in the run box. Click on the startup tab. See if there is an entry for HP Assistant. If there is un-check the box next to it. Click apply then OK. It will ask you to restart. Restart and see what happens.
Let me know.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
