Go to your start menu and find the option that says run and type in msconfig.
It will bring up a list of startup services that start with every boot. they usually slow your startup times way down. A lot of times, there will be programs and drivers loading for devices you may or may not have. If you've ever plugged in a external hard drive, or any device for that matter, it will load the drivers every time you start your computer.
also, programs that you don't need start up too. like AOL or things that start in your system tray. You know, yahoo messenger, AIM, Quicktime and pretty much everything in between.

I don't know if that's what you were looking for or not. I don't fully understand it. I know that I stopped thing I knew I didn't need and it changed my boot time from 5 to 6 minutes down to around a minute.

just google msconfig.

you might find a better explanation by someone smart. =)

15 to 20 mins screen will go blank and will have A black screen reboot and it will work 10 or 15 mins. RELOADED XP AND THIS DID NOT HELP, SAME PROBLEM


Your Dell OptiPlex GX260 PC Desktop computer is overheating. It is shutting itself down to prevent component failure.

Ensure that the Processor heat sink is clean of dust so sufficient air can flow through the heatsink and cool the processor.

Install additional fans in your computer 120mm are best but 80mm fans will do fine.

Clean the computer chassis of dust as well.

Thanking you

Screen goes black after 30 mins of working.


There are a few things you need to check here.
1. It could be that your computer power management is set to turn your monitor and harddrive off after 30 to 45 min.

If the computer is however working for 30 to 45 min while you doing stuff and it shuts off, the there is an internal problem "Hardware"

I would suggest you check to see if the power management is set to turn off monitor 30 min and harddrive after 45 min. IF that is not so, then we go on to the next test.

It could possibly be your processor fan is not working so once your processor gets over heated it shuts off the computer.

Turn off the computer, remove the case "this is only if you know what you are doing" with the case off, power on the computer and see if the processor fan is working.

You can get back to me and I can walk you through it.

Hope thiss help.

When you press your power button your system goes to sleep mode as per your system settings. To awake your system just press any key or 'Awake Key' (if its present on your keyboard), then your system will be back. No need to wait.

Computer won't start up!


Waiting for 10 or 15 or even 30 minutes doesn't make much sense to me. What kind of flash drive or drives do you use? .. USB Thumb/Pen/Flash drive? .. If your flash drives in "My Computer" folder just happen to disappear, does the computer still working or freezed state? When you say your computer does not want to start on AT ALL.' the machine is not running at all or just that the operating system is not booting up?
