PROBLEM! Start Up Issues

  Matley 06:55 19 Dec 2006

Hey people,

Well this one has baffled me.

I'm on an Acer Aspire 5670. Past month or so, occasionally the computer will stop loading windows once I'm gotten past the login screen. Sometimes it won't load past the login screen, sometimes it will load the background to my desktop but not load windows explorer (desktop icons and taskbar).

But then sometimes it will load successfully after a couple of restarts. What's wrong?

Once windows loads try running the system file checker
Start/Run and type sfc /scannow (note the space)

well I did the scan however it complete the search and gave me no results so I'm assuming nothing has been changes to the system files.

I don't think it ever tells what it has done but be sure to re-boot now that the scan has finished.
