Is there a preferred startup menu for my Toshiba Satellite L655-S5078?


Hi,

Regarding a computer's start-up menu, it is optional. You can choose which start-up programs you want to run on your computer during start-up. To access its control, just follow the steps below.
  1. Click on Start.
  2. Type msconfig on the start search bar and hit enter.
  3. MSCONFIG window will come up. If you see a check box that says "Disable all Microsoft Programs", put a check on it.
  4. Click on the Start Up tab.
  5. Carefully uncheck all the programs you don't want to run upon start-up.
That's it. Running minimal programs on start-up can help speed up your computer's initial load process.

When I turn on my PC, all that appears is the ''Satellite'' logo and my mouse arrow. I brought up the task bar by pressing cntl-alt-delete and found only one task that would open....''Pinball''. All others...


If you can bring up the task manager , go under the processes tab and see if Explorer is running.
If it isnt go to File > New task and type in explorer and hit ok.

Window disappears then minimized


Press the Esc key. If that doesn't do it, try the Space bar, or Enter key. Last but not least, the Tab key MIGHT do the job.
