Problem - Errors on Startup

When my laptop starts up I get 2 errors. The first says: CFSServ - Listen Error. I press OK. I then get: CFSServ - Recv Socket InitConnect Error. I press OK. I have SBC Yahoo DSL - SBC says the line is good. I have a Belkin Wireless Router (802.11b, v 2000) - Belkin says the router is good and that the fact that I'm having wireless issues is that there is a known Toshiba problem with the wireless not working. How do I get my wireless working again? It was working 3 weeks ago, then nothing.

Re: Problem - Errors on Startup

The process erroring out has to do with the Toshiba wireless settings. "cfsserv.exe is a process belonging to Toshiba's ConfigFree utility and searches for Wireless Devices. This program is a non-essential process, but should not be terminated unless suspected to be causing problems." I would attempt to completely un-install this utility and then re-install it. After re-installing this utility, make sure the wireless setting on your Toshiba and your wireless router match exactly. If you have trouble using the Toshiba utiliy, you can always try the built in Window utility (that is if you have Windows XP Service Pack 2 installed).

Very slow, freezes, jams, and is non responsive, I have to take battery out and wait for a an hour before putting battery in laptop, my computer is an acer 2350 travelmate, also when I bought this in...

This sounds like either a hard drive problem, when you power on the laptop there should be an option to enter BIOS or Setup (usually F2) once inside of the BIOS you should be able to run a diagnostic. and that will tell you if there is anything wrong with the hardware. If everything passes that test. you may have some serious Virus problems.

My toshiba laptop Model name SATELLITE PRO M40 X AR get hang in between and take very long for start up.

It could be possibility that there is a large number of programs on the startup list of the computer that is why it is starting slow. You can try to remove some programs from the startup list by:
then on top of the new window click on startup tab and uncheck all the boxes over there and then click OK at the bottom and restart the computer.

Let us know if that helped the computer in speeding up or not. You can also chat with us online at and if you want then we can take the remote access of the computer to help you better. :-)

When i am start my hp pavilion this shows Bootmgr is missing alt+cntr+del to restart again it same cycle

1. Error: BOOTMGR is missing:

The following error opens when attempting to start the PC:

??¢ If you recently installed an additional hard drive, turn off the computer and remove the drive before using the following steps:

??¢ Open HP System Recovery:

??¢ CAUTION: Do not perform a system recovery! Stop at the first recovery screen.

- Press the F11 key repeatedly while the computer is starting.

- If you have a recovery disc, turn on the PC and insert the first recovery disc into the drive. Use the disc to enter the system recovery.

??¢ Select Microsoft Startup Repair tool and wait for repair to find and fix errors. When finished, restart the computer; even if the startup repair tool finds errors but cannot fix them.

??¢ If the error message persists, open the recovery manager screen as was done in step 1.

??¢ At the recovery manager screen, press ALT + D.

??¢ Enter the following text at the command prompt: bootrec /rebuildbcd

??¢ If bootrec displays "Add installation to boot list?", press y .

??¢ After bootrec completes successfully, the computer displays "The operation completed successfully".

??¢ To close the command prompt, enter the following text: exit

??¢ At the Recovery Manager screen, select Microsoft Startup Repair tool (again) and wait for startup repair to find and fix errors. When finished, restart the computer.

??¢ The error should no longer open. If it does, perform a system recovery, making sure to backup important files.

??¢ If you removed a hard drive before using these steps, replace the drive. If the error occurs again, make sure the additional hard drive is not set as an active drive. Only the main bootable drive should be set as active.

Scanning computer to eliminate malwares, spywares and the viruses from your laptop.

2- Repairing and cleaning Windows registry.

These two tips are found to be very helpful to fix the laptop shutdown problem. Almost all the computer users surf internet which could result in viruses attacking your system. Some of these infections are really pesky and cause the machines to shutdown randomly.

The registry errors, however, are the internal errors and can become a cause of system crashes and freezes. The registry keys shall be in good health to keep a system perfect.

When I noticed my laptop keeps shutting down everytime, I tested the Intel Software Partner, RegInOut to fix the random shutdown problem with my laptop.

In this type of infection not only your Windows registry gets corrupted and needs massive repair but also there is virus based penetration in the Windows set up. In this situation it is recommended to conduct a virus scan as well.However, if your Windows freezes up, the best solution is to repair the computer registry.use registry cleaner reg in out
