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

My HP Compaq Presario sr1610nx hangs at the Compaq screen. I won't boot Windows and does not respond to esc F1, F8, F10 or the recovery disk 1 CD. I tried replacing the RAM sticks and the battery...


Try clearing CMOS. Take the battery out and press and hold the power button for 30 seconds. If that doesn't work disconnect or change out drives and memory one by one until you find the reason your pc won't POST. Once you can at least get to BIOS you've found your problem.

I have a compaq presario 5600 / P4-1.5G/128MB/40GB/C48/M The other day the system hung, and nothing was working. I changed the CPU battery, cleaned the dust. the system started with Intel boot agent 4.0...


You probably need to set your boot order in BIOS (setup) to load from CD first. Reboot the computer and press either F1 or F10 repeatedly until the setup (BIOS) menu comes up, then, using your arrow keys, navigate to the boot menu and set the boot order to CD first.

If you can't get into the BIOS through F1 or F10, try other "F' keys until you get in. Also the "Del" key.

Recovering to factory settings is kind of a drastic measure just because of a system hang. You would be better served to find out why the system hung. IN FACT, understand that depending upon what is wrong, the system may hang during the recovery, leaving you with fewer options for repair.

Post back if you want to try to troubleshoot this further. It will take a while, but we should eventually be able to determine what is causing the hang.

It could be just an application that needs to be removed or re-installed. Have you installed any new software recently? What software were you using when the hang occured? What operating system are you using?

It could just be a virus or a bad memory module. Are you able to boot into SAFE MODE" (press the F8 at boot)?

If you can boot into Windows, go to "Start" > "Control Panel" > "Administrative Tools" > "Event Viewer" > "System" and check for any error entries. Also look at the "Applications" log.

My hard drive is "hanging up" and sometimes does not start. The computer will start, keyboard light momentarily lights but hard drive will not start. The only way I can seem to get it started...


There is a possibility your hard drive is failing.Go to the website of your hard drive manufacturer and download a diagnostic utility. Run the diagnostic utility to determine whether the hard drive is in good condition.
