The most helpful thing you can try is to modify the "startup programs" when your computer boots up. This will make your bootup shorter, and less likely to cause problems with the log in screen. Here is a web page that explains what to do:
http://www.ehow.com/how_5843727_fix-slow-log-windows-xp.html
There are programs you can purchase to clean the registry, but try the utilities in Windows first...they are free, and can help in many cases. Here's a site that suggests the uninstall options in Windows, and can free up memory that unused programs are "soaking up":

I assumed you're running Windows, but there are fixes on the net for Linux and Mac systems, just google "slow startup" and enter your system type, and you will hit on some web pages.
Good luck, hope this helps, and thanks for using FixYa.

Ver, very SLOW when booting up! Sometimes the


BIOS System defaults are best used for installing a new operating system or performing diagnostics. Bootchecks and memory checks due to settings on antivirus/antispyware programs are notorious for causing slow boots. In most cases these scans are unnecessary. Saying that, it is also possible you have acquired a trojan. Run a full system scan and if you have a clean machine, disabling the bootchecks and memory checks will speed up your booting. If after doing this your boots are still slow, tweak your BIOS as follows per Intel:


  • Set the hard drive as the first boot device in the boot order in the BIOS setup (Boot > Boot Device Priority menu).
  • Enable Intel® Rapid BIOS boot in the BIOS setup (Boot menu).
  • Disable Hard Disk Pre-Delay in the BIOS Setup (Advanced > Drive Configuration menu).
  • Disable system functions and features if you do not need them. Examples include:
    • Legacy USB - this must be enabled if you use a USB keyboard or USB mouse outside the Windows* environment (Advanced > USB Configuration).
    • Unused I/O ports, such as serial, parallel and IEEE-1394 ports (Advanced > Peripheral Configuration menu).
    • Event logging (Advanced > Event Log Configuration menu).
    I hope you find this solves your problem. All the best! Greg

Acer Aspire M1100 Desktop - lost password, can't login in User Login. Is there a way to bypass the password?


If you're having trouble logging into Windows, you can attempt to use the Administrator account to edit/remove the password of the user login. The Administrator account is hidden by default while in normal mode. You'll need to boot the PC into Safe Mode and login as the Administrator account. Follow the below steps:

  1. Reboot the PC and before the Windows boot screen appears, tap the F8 key about once per second.
  2. Eventually you'll be faced with a screen asking you how you want to boot Windows. Select Safe Mode.
  3. You will see some dll, sys, and com files scrolling down your screen, this is normal. Eventually the PC will boot up and you'll have a login screen with your User Account(s) and a new account, Administrator. Select Administrator.
  4. As long as you haven't, in the past, altered the password for the Administrator account, you should be able to simply click this account and have it log you in. If it requests a password, you might try "password" (without quotes) for the password.
  5. Once in, Navigate to Start -> Control Panel -> User Accounts
  6. Select the User Login information that you're not able to log into and remove the password for the account or change it something you know.
You can now reboot the PC normally and be able to log into this account without a password or with the password you created.
