I suggest that you perform a Startup Repair.
Method 1: Startup Repair
1. Please insert the Windows Vista/7 DVD and reboot the computer.
2. When we are prompted to press a key to boot from the DVD, please press Enter or the space bar.
3. Choose your language settings, and then click Next.
4. Click Repair your computer.
5. Select the operating system you want to repair, and then click Next.
6. On the System Recovery Options menu, click Startup Repair. Startup Repair might prompt you to make choices as it tries to fix the problem, and if necessary, it might restart your computer as it makes repairs.

Access the link below for more information about startup repair:

You can also try "Rebuild BCD".

Method 2: Rebuild BCD
1. Put the Windows Vista/7 installation disc in the disc drive, and then start the computer.
2. Press a key when the message indicating "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD ...". appears.
3. Select a language, a time, a currency, and a keyboard or another input method, and then click Next.
4. Click Repair your computer.
5. (Click the operating system that you want to repair), and then click Next.
6. In the System Recovery Options dialog box, click Command Prompt.
7. Type bcdboot c:\windows /l en-us, and then press ENTER.
Note: C:\ should be changed to the default partition you installed Windows Vista/7.

Hi there! just bought a laptop acer timeline X and i have a broblem with its starting up. i always had a waiting for few minutes before it starts up. but then if when its already there, its just like no...

You may just need a good computer tune up. First and most importantly, I would not buy ANY of the tune up software advertised on TV or on thousands of websites. Most of them are less than useful and you can do a better job manually.

Here's one website that gives you a few basic steps that are easy to do:

I especially like one product mentioned there, CCleaner. You can download it free from:

Adaware is also very good, get the basic free version here:

One of the first things I do is in Windows, click Start > Run > type in "msconfig" without the quotes and press Enter. Go to the Startup tab and disable just about everything there, I leave only the antivirus running on startup. This does no harm to the computer and you can manually start any of these programs if you want it to run. But having tons of programs start up every time you start the computer will weigh it down a lot. You can always run msconfig again to put the check mark back if you want a program to run on startup.

Good luck!

In most cases, you startup your PC with a disc (CD or DVD) containing the OS. (OS=Operating System)
You may need to "enter the BIOS" to make sure that your PC starts from the disc. To do this, restart your computer, and press the F10 button while it starts, then select bootup sequence, select disc drive. If that doesn't work, you might need to press a different F-key, your PC should tell you, at the beginning of startup, "press F8 for advanced startup options" or something similar. Press that F-key instead.

If you want all your questions answered, I think you should enrol on a course at a college.

Due to c00002la fatal system error problem I am unable to shut down.


Shut down your PC by pressing restart button then immediately shutdown button, Next time when you start your PC, press F8 during startup before the window logo comes up, and choose "last configuration that worked". If the last known good configuration does not work you may have to reinstall the operating system. Visit this link to resolve this error.

My dell M1530 laptop has startup problems. It

Hi i'm Rain.
Well The reason that it is taking so long to load Windows is its in bad need of cleaning . Also there are too many things starting up with windows. Every program you download will want to start when Windows star up unless you change that.
Now the reason that is not Keeping the date and time is because the DDO battery for the bios is going back. I can Walk you thru the Disk Clean up and Disk defrag . But I would not advise you to open up your laptop and try changing the DDO battery.
To do a Disk Clean up .
  1. Click Start.
  2. Click All Programs.
  3. Click Accessories.
  4. Click System Tools .
  5. Click Disk Clean up.
It will scan your files then a box will pop up.
check all the boxes and click next.
This will clean up your computer and help it to move faster. Now you follow the same instructions but this time you click on Disk defrag.
Click on Defrag to start the Defragging .
Do this as soon as you get the computer on desk top.

Start up my mac and it keeps giving me a flashing folder with a question mark. have tryed everything. could my harddrive be fried? if so why does the hardware test keep comming back no troubles found?

It may be that the harddrive is not set as the boot device any longer.
Follow these steps:
  1. Turn on, or restart, your Mac.
  2. Immediately press and hold the Option key. After a few seconds, the Startup Manager should appear. The Startup Manager scans for available available volumes.
  3. Use the left and right arrow keys on the keyboard to select the volume you would like to use.
  4. Press the Return key on your keyboard to start up the computer from the volume you selected. Because this change is temporaryyou will need to set the default startup volume for your Mac after your computer is running, open "System Preferences" and choose "Startup Disk" from the "View" menu. (If this does not resolve this issue please messageme again)

Ok this is an easy fix. I had exactly the same problem.
1. Go to computer, your main drive, program files, common files, Ahead, DSfilter.
2. Rename "" to say ""
3. Rename "" to say ""
4. Reboot
5. Problem fixed.
That's it!
It started for me just after I installed Nero. It's not Vista.


1. Click on Pearl (Start Button), in the serach box type:


and hit the enter key on the keyboard. It should open the System Configuration Utility window.

2. Click on Services over the top and then at the bottom right corner, put a check in the "Hide all Microsoft services" checkbox.

3. Click on "Disable All" button.

4. Click on "Startup" tab, and then click on "Disable All" button again.

5. Press OK button and then "Restart" button on the following window. Let the computer restart.

6. Once you're back on the desktop, you'd get a window for System Configuration Utility. Put a check in the box "Don't Show....." and then press OK button.

7. Now, once again check the issue. If the issue is resolved, open System Configuration Windows again and then enable all the services from Services tab and then check the issue after restarting the computer in the same way as mentioned above.

8. If issue is still resolved, enable half of the Startup items from Startup tab and then check issue.

9. If issue occurs again, it means, there's a culprit in the checked startup items. But if issue doesn't occur, then issue could be with rest of the Startup items. Now, uncheck the first half startup items (that were check before), and then check rest of the half items. Check the issue again.......

10. Now, if the issue occurs, then make a note of all the names of the startup items and then follow the same procedure, for them. Now, you need to be careful, as by design the System Configuration will sort all the enable startup items to the top. So, it means all the entries would be mixed on next reboot. From now on you need to make a note of all the entries that you're enabling or disabling........
