Tips for solving windows start up problem

When windows takes a long time to load the system and you need it fast you feel the need of fast system, but when it fails to start then sometimes it becomes difficult to even diagnose the problem. Here we are going to give you few tips so that you can track down the problem and correct them.

Try the safe mode :

One of your first options is to try starting windows in safe mode. To start windows in safe mode restart windows and hold F8 key so that you are taken to the Windows 7 Advance boot options.

You should get Startup menu of options to select from. Choose SAfe Mode and allow Windows to Boot. If the boot is successful, open the Device Manager and check the status of your devices. If any hardware is malfunctioning, the Device Manger tab will show it with a yellow highlight. You can also use the Device Manager to disable hardware manually and see if that solves your problem and system boots normally. If you cannot boot Windows to the Safe Mode, chances are that a serious hardware problem exists in the system.

Try a Clean Boot under Windows :

You can use a clean boot technique to disable common startup programs, settings, and drivers under Windows.


1. Click start, click Run ( or Press Windows key on keyboard and Press R key on keyboard together) type msconfig in the run box and then click ok

2. On the General Tab, click Selective Startup.

3. Click to clear all of the check boxes under Selective Startup.

4. On the Startup Tab, click to select the *StateMgr checkbox.

5. Click ok, and click Yes when you’re prompted to restart your computer.


1. Click start, click Run, type msconfig in the box and then click ok.

2. On the General tab click selective startup.

3. Cllick to clear all of the ckeckboxes and selective startup

4.Click Apply and ok, then restart your computer

After computer restart click start click run type msconfig  and then click OK again. Review the General tab and ensure that the check boxes you cleared are still cleared. If you see a disabled or gray check box, your computer is not truly clean-booted. Now you can isolate the problem. If the trouble does not reoccur after a clean boot, select one item at a time under selective start up, and then restart the computer to see if the additional entry reproduces the original issue. If so, that is the cause of the trouble. For example, if you find that the system boots normally when you restore the system.ini file, but returns when you re enable the win.ini file, you can suspect that the trouble is in one or more win.ini entries. You can then select the win.ini tab in msconfig and check individual settings to isolate the culprit. When you are done troubleshooting you may return to the normal boot process.

1. Click start, click Run, type msconfig in the box and then click ok.

2. On the General tab click Normal startup.

3. Apply your changes and restart the computer

Check for Hard Disk Errors :

If you cannot star Windows due to a disk error, it may be that the drive’s power supply or signal cable has become loose. Check the cables and see that the drive is receiving adequate power. Try booting from a floppy disk. If you can reach a DOS prompt from a boot disk, the system hard drive may be defective.

Check for Missing Files :

If you see the message ” file needed by Windows is missing” during a boot cycle, it’s often due to a poor un installation  of an application. This can sometimes occur when you uninstall and then immediately reinstall an application without rebooting first. Take a look at the name of the missing file to see whether it yeilds any clue as to which application might be causing the problem, and if it does, then try to uninstall, reboot, and reinstall that application. If the offending file relates to an application that you no longer need and can use  regedit  in the run box and go to registry editor to find and delete the registry keys that refer to that corrupt or missing file. If nothing works you will have to repair or reinstall windows to solve the problem. These problems were sorted to a great extent in Windows 7.
