Reboot into Safe Mode. While rebooting keep tapping the F8 to go to Safe Mode. Once there select "Last known good configuration" and press Enter. If that doesnt work continue to select Safe Mode and press Enter. Once there you can do system restore to an earlier good date, run a scandisk, disk defrag, remove un needed programs, run anti-virus, run spyware

If still that doesnt work, reboot into Safe Mode again and select "Repair your computer" and press Enter.

let me know how it goes

Two to three hours is a long time! It sounds like your hard drive is getting ready to crash.

If your computer is running, click Start and, in the search box, type

eventvwr

and press enter. (If you have XP, click Start -> Run and type eventvwr).

Under Windows Logs, click System. On the right side, click Source. All the events will sort by source. Scan the list for any "disk" errors. If you are getting disk errors, your hard drive is crashing. You should either take your computer to a competent professional to get the hard drive imaged, or purchase a new hard drive and do the imaging.

SOURCE: very long start up it takes 2-3 hrs...

Hey pinas all you need to do is disable the startup by doing the following steps

start -> run-> msconfig ->startup->disable all->restart ->put a check on the dialogue box which says dont show me this message again after the restart.

Now it really important to scan your system for protected files which needs to be restored in their original form.
Insert windows xp disc in the drive
start ->run->sfc /scannow->enter
and it will do every thing on its own.

In the last scan your system with mcafee 8.5i antivirus enjoy.

My hp 630 laptop was working well but today when i turn it on, it will start but will remain at Press The ESC Key for Startup Menu and will not continue. What should i do.


It seems your boot image has been corrupted. Pleas try following methods.
1. Go to BIOS settings by pressing F2 during boot. Insert portable OS flash drive in to USB slot. Then select boot from external storage. This will run your portable OS and take back up of your important data to other hard drive. Then reinstall OS image.

2. If you are using windows OS, go to startup system repair option during boot. That will restore your system.

Start-up boot


What OS controls the bootloader? Is it linux or Windows? I had the same problem when i deleted ubuntu, the bootloader remains and i cannot boot windows. I then placed the windows CD and loaded recovery console. Im not sure of the command but I think it was "fixMBR" or something similar. Just type help for the commands.
