Boot to Safe Mode, by pressing F8 during boot. Then 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.



Remove all USB attached devices like drives.
You may need to roll back system with System Restore. Under Safe Mode (press F8 during boot and choose Safe Mode).

Win 7 - Start > Search type System Restore.
XP - Is Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Restore. Now choose a date prior to problem. You may have to try a few dates.
Uninstall last program(s) that was installed, again in safe mode.

If this just started roll it back by with System Restore. Under Safe Mode (press F8 during boot and choose Safe Mode).


In Win 7 - Start > Start > Search type System Restore.


In XP - Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Restore. Now choose a date prior to problem. You may have to try a few dates.


There is the option of uninstalling last program(s) that was installed, again in safe mode.

You also 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.

Asus A6J starts in CD mode, cannot boot normal


Click Start/Programs and look for the RUN command. It might be under Accessories depending on your operating system.

When you click RUN and it opens type: msconfig.exe and Press OK.

When the System Configuration window opens click the General tab and make sure Diagnostic Startup is not checked. Most like the Selective Startup will be checked (that's ok).

Next click the Boot.Ini tab and make sure NO boot options are checked or selected. Boot Options will be under the button that says Check All Boot Options. Nothing should have a check by it under Check All Boot Options (SafeBoot, NoGuiBoot, BootLog, BaseVideo & SOS should not be checked).

When ever i log on i keep getting a pop up tvagent.exe entry point not found


TVAgent is software made by Cyberlink that comes installed on many HP computers. It is on there so that you can use your computer as a TV. It sounds like its trying to start some type of program or service when your computer boots. It may be looking for the powrprof.dll file which may not be there or be the wrong version. If you don't use your computer as a TV then I would see if you can uninstall the Cyberlink software from Programs and Features.

Or you can also uncheck that particular item from msconfig window.
1) Click on Start >> type msconfig on the search or run field and press Enter.
  1. On the General tab, click Selective Startup, and then click to clear the Load startup items check box. (The Use Original Boot.ini check box is unavailable.)
  2. Click the Startup tab, and then uncheck the box for TVAgent or cyberlink application. Click on Ok and Apply. Then restart the notebook.

MY Dell laptop running XP will run in safe mode but shut down after 2 minutes in normal operation. When I start it defaults to safe mode but allows me to restart and comes up temporairialy in normal mode...


Hi Friend, If your system only boot up in safemode, you should try a Clean Boot of your machine to help given steps, 1- click Start, and click Run. The Run window appears(From the safemode desktop) 2-. In the Open box, type msconfig and then click OK. The System Configuration Utility appears. 3- go to the General tab and click Selective Startup radio button. 4- Un-check all options with the exception of "Load System Services" & "Use Original BOOT.INI". 5- Click Apply, and then click Close. 6- When prompted to restart the computer, click Yes. Now if it boot up in normal mode you should get a message to the effect of the changes you just made in msconfig, don't worry about it, but make sure you put a check in the box that says "Do not show me this message again" and click the "OK" button.
Thanks,

When I turn my computer on, I get a runtime error.


Clean Boot with Only MoSearch loadTOCNode(2, 'resolution'); The Mosearch.exe (Microsoft Office Search Service) and Mosdmn.exe (Microsoft Office 10 Search Filter Daemon) Startup items may be conflicting with some other program (or programs) running in the background. Therefore, clean boot your computer with only MoSearch selected on the Startup menu to determine whether this program is the source of the conflict. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Click Start, and then click Run.
  2. In the Open box, type msconfig.exe, and then click OK.
  3. On the General tab, click Selective startup.
  4. On the Startup tab, click to clear all check boxes except for MoSearch.

    NOTE: In Microsoft Windows Millennium Edition (Me), leave the *StateMgr check box selected as well.
  5. Click OK, and then click Yes when you are prompted to restart the computer.
  6. If the error message can be reproduced, repeat the preceding steps. In step 3, also click to clear the Process System.ini file and Process Win.ini file check boxes.
If the error message cannot be reproduced, this indicates that MoSearch is conflicting with some other program or programs running in the background. Follow these steps to locate the conflicting program:
  1. Click Start, and then click Run.
  2. In the Open box, type msconfig.exe, and then click OK.
  3. On the Startup tab, click to select one of the check boxes.
  4. Click OK, and then click Yes when you are prompted to restart the computer.
  5. If the preceding steps reproduce the error message, the last item added to the Startup menu is causing the conflict. If the error message is not reproduced, repeat these steps until all Startup menu check boxes are selected.
  6. If all the Startup menu check boxes are selected and the error message is still not reproduced, start Msconfig again, and then click to select the Process System.ini file and Process Win.ini file check boxes.
If this doesn't fix it, let me know and I'll post another, more advanced repair.

Good luck, and please let me know how you do.

You can edit the boot.ini
OR
go to control panel, double click on "system"
it will open system window. go to "Advance" tabs and
under startup and recovery there is a button "setting" click on that button.
it open startup and recovery windows.
if you click on edit, it will open notepad to edit boot.ini, if you arenot sure don't edit, just select the operating system that is working and change the time to 0 seconds. once you boot it will go to your windows directly without any option to choose which windows.
