Question about Lenovo IdeaCentre A600 (3011CKU) 21.5 in. PC Desktop
After I type my password, start page opens and hangs. I have to go to advance troubleshooting (F8), and start Windows using the last known successful configuration. I've tried setting a restore point, but there is no option to set a point before the current date. I want to set one before the date of the last Windows update, after which this problem began. Since I had no problems then, I didn't think to set a restore point at the time. Btw, I'm running Windows 7 HP.
Try disabling startup programs. 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.
No date option means the drive is not being monitored for restore. Right click My Computer > Properties and enable.

Restart in Safe Mode (Option 1 on the list) - when you get back on the desktop - uninstall the last you installed before the crash.
If you cannot get back on - locate the Recovery CD, put it in the drive and reboot from it. See if it will give you the choice to reinstall Windows in a NON-DESTRUCTIVE method.

My first suggestion, and not to insult, make sure that the speakers and devices are properly plugged into the correct jacks, and that the volume is up. After stating that obvious bit, which I'm guessing did not fix the problem, hence why you're asking for help here, is to check your sound drivers. Windows 7 has a great and universal amount of native drivers, but there is a small chance they are not properly supporting your sound hardware on the motherboard. Please go to the HP website>support page> and enter in your model numbers. There you can download the latest drivers and software for your PC, and hopefully this will fix your problem!
