Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

My Packard Bell easynote R4250 won't boot up properly, it gets stuck on the blue windows 'Welcome' screen and then sticks. It can stay like this for hours till I turn it off. I searched PBs site and the only thing it recommended was to do a Registry Restore. I did this back to March 15th. It rebooted and stuck on the Welcome screen again. I'm a UK girl but am a student in Singapore at the moment and laptop is out of warranty, am scared of taking it somewhere here as have heard stories of parts b


Answers :

Okay, since you can boot in safe mode, this indicates the problem is with a driver or service that is loading later in the boot sequence. The way to fix this is essentially done using a trial-and-error method of diagnosis. If you press, Win+R to get the Run... dialog box and enter 'msconfig' and press Enter, you will be presented with a dialog with several tabs. By disabling everything on the Startup tab and the Services tab and rebooting the machine, you will be in a mode similar to safe mode. Then, one-by-one, you can rerun the 'msconfig' utility adding one service at a time until you find the one that causes the computer to hang again. Once you find that one, simply disable it in the 'msconfig' utility again. Keep repeating this process until all of the services and startup programs have been re-enabled with the exceoption of any that caused the computer to hang on startup (there will normally only be one of these).
