Preferred Solution: Laptop stuck on welcome screen

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Greetings,

Please could someone help me,

Recently i had my LCD screen on my 'Toshiba Satellite c660-119' replaced because it had become cracked, so i got it fixed and now started up my laptop, it boots up fine goes past the toshiba inavations screen and then goes to the ''Windows starting'' screen, it loads up the windows animation logo and then just stops and freezes on that page, if i leave it there i can then hear the computer make the login sounds and it loading up programs ( the skype sound) but the screen is still stuck on the same page, its like the laptop is still running normaly but the screen is just frozen, so i turned it off and then loaded it in 'safemode' it loaded fine and i can use web stuff ect.. so i wrote this article, please if anyone can help me fix my screen freezing problem it would be great,

Laptop specs:

64 bit Windows 7 home premium,

I have Windows Vista on my computer. In the boot menu there were three options on which OS I could use. I could either choose Earlier Versions of Windows, Windows Vista or Windows XP Professional setup. In advanced system settings I set Windows Vista as my default OS and then checked the box so that it would wait 0 seconds before booting up. Now it is automatically booting up to Windows XP setup. It starts windows but then stops and I get a message that a .sys file could not be found. It makes me restart my computer and then it automatically enters into the same setup. I can't get out of this loop. I tried putting in a recovery disc and having it boot from my CD drive. Nothing is working. How can I get my computer to boot with Windows Vista instead of the bad setup file? I don't care about losing the information on the drive. I just want to be able to use my computer. Thanks in advance for any advice.

My laptop is stuck on the logging off screen...nothing is working...even when I turn it off and on again, it comes back on to the same screen.
 

A:Laptop stuck on log off screen

Try

Manually shut down (hold the power button) the computer (you might have been pushing the Sleep button. If you can't figure it out, just unplug it and let the battery run down.)

Or go to safe mode and do a system restore to before the problem started.

UPDATE: I fixed all of that. I'm way past that point - will leave this unsolved in case I have more probs tonight.

new machines scare me.

I tried to restore my laptop, not knowing what I was doing. I got to the screen that affects where it looks when it boots, so it would recognize my disk. got that to work...

but then, I realized I had the wrong disk in, so I took it out.

Now, I'm stuck at "bad command or file name" and I need to know how to get the heck out of this and start over. Rebooting my machine takes me right back to this place.

I have DELL laptop with Matte screen under warranty. These irritating creatures started appearing in previous apartment but until now there wasn't a case with creature stuck in laptop screen. I don't even know what are these creatures... They are yellow and very tiny is all i can tell. Can it be termites? I am using these desk and shelf that are now over 10 years old.

Today it was first crawling around and then i put laptop on standby, cleaned screen and after i turn it on, the insect wasn't moving any longer - it is dead probably.

How do i remove it?
 

A:What To Do With Little Insect Stuck In Laptop's Screen?

The only way to get the insect out is to take the screen assembly apart, but as the PC is under warranty that will void your guarantee.

You should contact the place of purchase and ask for their advise.

Hey, I'm having a problem with my hp laptop, I bought it 1 year ago, it asked me to download updates, restarted it and now it dosen't boot up.It shows a hp logo at middle and start up menu Esc at the bottom left. After 30 seconds, it restarts and the same thing occurs again. My model is Hp EliteBook 8470p. I tried hard reset, cleaning the fans, but to no avail. Need help!

Hi ,,       Can you get into safe mode of any description ? On start up keep tapping f8 till the Advanced boot options page opens  . Next using arrow keys move down to safe mode with command prompt and hit enter . When command prompt opens type   rstrui.exe  and hit enter . This will take you to System Restore choose the restore point that was created BEFORE you did the updates and let it load . This should take you back to a usable state , When you are prompted to do the updates again try installing them individualy rather than all at the same time . This way you can pinpoint the offending update that is causing the issue . Let me know how you get on    Checkurtech

Hello.

Two days ago, it has started that everytime I turn on my laptop, the stand-by screen comes up (blue screen with my username and the square box that i can normally click on, which in turn directs me to my desktop).

Every time I click on the box, my desktop appears for about half of a second then I am taken right back to the stand-by screen. Essentially, I can't get to my desktop as I am constantly sent back to the stand-by screen.

My computer when turns on seems to go normally, but after the desktop appears (WITHOUT ANY ICONS), I am almost immediately taken into the stand-by screen, in which I am unable to effectively get out of.

This all sounds like a virus. Is there anything I can do to ameliorate this particular problem?

Thank you for your time.

1) Does the issue occurs in safe mode ?
2) What happen if you log on the system with a different user account part of the adm group?
3) You can boot to safe mode with Networking and do a virus scan online

When a laptop is starts, you usually would usually see something like the following:
1) "Windows is loading files..."
2) "Starting Windows"
3) "Screen where you log into your computer"
4) "Computer Desktop"

However, what I saw when I started the computer was the following:
1) "Windows is loading files..."
2) "Starting Windows"
3) "Light grey screen where I can see and move only the mouse cursor"
and an intermittent low volume cricket noise (for lack of better words)
4) no change from 3)

Someone gave me a free refurbished version of ASUS U50F-RBBAG05 because it gave the above problem.
So, despite being a noob (but not a noob noob) at fixing computers, I tried to make a clean install of Windows 7.
However, the laptop decided that it didn't want to install the software--(clicked on install button and waited 3 hours).
The laptop just stayed at 0% progress.

So, I was like, "Okay, so let's TRY to restore this thing back to factory settings via Recovery Partition."
Although I waited on the Light grey screen for about 30-60 minutes, I finally got to the screen that I needed.
Alas, although the laptop did "start" the recovery process, it ended up the same--0% progress and did not budge

I know that the Windows 7 installation disc was not the problem--I had 3 other installation discs (all legit).
Since the laptop decided to not move from 0%, I figured that getting the ASUS res... Read more

A:Laptop stuck at startup screen?

I would suggest you start by testing the hard drive, as follows:

As your PC is not operating you will have to use another PC to make the CD.

Open Internet Explorer and click on this: Seatools

Save the download to your desktop.

In Windows 7 right click the ISO file, select Open With, then select Windows Disc Image Burning Tool then follow the prompts.
For all other versions of windows (if you do not have an ISO burner) download this free software. ImgBurn Install the program and start the application. Select the top left hand option to Write image file to disc and then on the next window click on the small yellow folder icon and browse to the ISO file on your desktop. Then click on the two grey discs with the arrow in between (bottom left) and leave it to complete the operation.

You will need a blank recordable CD or a re-recordable CD. You cannot use this software on a USB flash drive.

When the CD has been burned boot the PC into the Bios setup and set the CD/DVD drive to 1st in the boot sequence. Insert the disk in the drive then reboot and the disc will load into DOS. Click on Basic Tests and select the Long Test.

A full set of instructions can be found here: Seatools instructions

When the test completes it will show a Pass or Fail.

Hi, I'm insanely frustrated right now. I recently got this laptop for my birthday on February 26 (2016). All I really use it for is watching YouTube, doing school work on google docs and Pandora and Netflix. In March, I had to completely reset my laptop because everytime I went online a bunch of pop ups would come up. So everything was fine after I reset it up until today when I got home from school. Last night I got notifications from the hp support thing that I had updates waiting to be installed so I clicked hoping that they would install last night. Well, I went on my laptop after school today and since then it has been stuck on the hp loading screen (I've been home for 3 hours at this point). I'm so incredibly pissed off because I got this laptop just over 3 months ago BRAND NEW and this is the second time where it's completely useless. And it's not like I'm downloading anything off the Internet or anything like that, I literally go online watch YouTube, do homework if I need to and that's all I do online! So I would love to know what the hell in supposed to do. Also, automatic repair doesn't do anything!

Greetings, It's a long story of a format gone very wrong, so I'll try to keep it short , I hope you guys can help me  2 years ago I bought a HP pavilion dv5-1199e(Win vista 32-bit), everything was ok.. later I upgraded to Win 7 (32-bit) and everything was ok as well.... later, I decided to format the laptop to clean things up and make it faster again. I did this with the Win 7 DvD.. I formatted the C: drive but kept the Recovery drive(for obvious reasons). At first things appeared ok until I noticed that the FN+f7/f8 button(to adjust brightness) wasn't working.. then I noticed that my laptop was telling me that my Graphics card only had 12MB of Ram.. so I came to the conclusion that the drivers were gone and I need to reinstall them Now, I would have downloaded the drivers from HP's site, but the thing is that my internet is very slow and very limited, so I thought "what If I use the recovery drive and format back to Vista then upgrade to 7 again.. that should work and get the drivers back!"....at first I tried to press F11 upon startup but it did nothing, that is until I found out I had to set the recovery drive to active via the "Manage" button.. I did that.. and when I pressed F11 it worked, now here is where the troubles begin.. I followed the system restore instructions and did it.. but after system restore was done, after restart, upon Vista installation startup I got an error message saying "The system registry contains invalid file p...

Typing on phone for obvious reasons (read title head-liner)Okay so first time signing up to and using this site. I've come here because I've grown a bit tired with the constant incomplete update screen. What to say to start this problem off? Bought this laptop not even like 5 months ago, never had these particular problems with previous laptops brands, but what happens on this laptop is sometimes it'll just randomly turn off or if I restart the system manually it'll automatically transition to this screen saying: 'preparing to configure Windows. Don't turn off your computer'. And stays on that screen for eternity. The initial time this happened it was stuck there for over 4 hours and I knew that wasn't normal so ever since from then on whenever I've encountered this screen at random, I've just hard shut-down my computer to save myself hours of getting-nowhere-configuring/updating.To answer some questions: I believe I'm on Windows 10. Don't know if 32-bit or 64-bit - never bothered to find out which one exactly and because I don't know the difference truthfully. The laptops name is 'HP pentium" I don't think this is specific but feel free to ask any specific questions that you wish to know.So is this a HP-specific issue, a Windows 10 issue or just MY laptops issue?I had some side-questions also but for now will postpone them to keep this topic simple. Can anyone help with this problem? Thanks

I've tried taking the power cord and battery out trick where you then press the power on button but this did not do anything. I can enter the BIOS settings (F2) and it shows my hard drive is connected. (MK1652GSX [S1])

Welcome aboard, Gene
First, boot into Advanced Boot Options , and try "Last Known Good Configuration (Advanced)" let us know it it worked.

Do you have a Repair disk, or installer disk ? How have you run the startup repair ? Automatic startup repair cannot recover it sometimes .

If not, download repair disk for your appropriate bits (32 bit or 64 bit)from the link specified in the first post of the thread Win7 Repair Disk Download , Burn the downloaded .iso file to a blank CD, boot from the CD, and run Startup Repair , at least three times, with restarts after each single run. ( Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times).

Let us know it it is not booting still now.

But the screen wouldnt go away to continue with the boot up. Pressing the ESC, F1-12 nothing happens, only the text in the bottom changes to something like- "F2 Starting report screen...". Tried taking out the battery and unplugging it, didnt work. Then i unplugged the battery and power plug and i pushed the power up button for 30 seconds, still didnt work. What could this be?

Hey guys!So i assume you all have the stream laptop specifically.What happened was the processor is just 100% frozen and sadly you can't fix it yourself unless you have the equipment and know computers really well.So, the only solution is to take your laptop to a shop probably the one you bought the laptop from as they should have a tech help station; I took mine back to the store I got it from (aka micro center) and an IT guy fixed it for me.So the prob isnt major and your files should be safe. Mine were fine and nothing was lost.Hope that helped and sorry it happened to you all too. It totally sucks but at least its fixable

She asked me to upgrade it to windows 10 because it looks like 7 and she understands that one. So I went to download windows 10 and got all the way through it up to the point of were it said Your PC will shut down many times through this install. It was but finally I had to crash at 1am. So I left it to do what it needed to. This morning, it is stuck on a screen that just shows HP logo in the center, no esc buttons, no nothing.  Did the install fail and how can I get past this screen? thanks

Whenever I close my laptop then reopen it later it gets stuck at the hibernating screen (instead of standby). The only way to restart is by removing the battery and starting the computer up again. What is causing this problem? If it makes a difference it's only really been happening since around the time I got infected with spyware last week.

A:When I close my laptop it gets stuck in "Hibernating" screen?

Go to the Control Panel and look in Power Options to see if your setting have been changed.

I am trying to fix a gateway laptop that keeps getting stuck at the xp title screen. I did a restore that saves the data files and it went through the entire process only to be stuck at the xp title screen again. Was hoping to be able to save some of the old data files but thats not looking too likely. This is a last ditch effort before I have to do a reformat of the drive and load it all up again. Hoping for any suggestions that could be a work around.

Thanks in advance

Without more information we are kind of shooting in the dark.

And I may not be the one to carry you through to solution...
(I only have limited exposure to Win7 so far.)

Based on experience with other OS...
Could be Hardware (HD most likely, though Ram is not impossible)
Have you tried HD diagnostics? WD offers a diagnostic program for their drives.
We regularly have referred people to Memtest for Ram testing... not sure of use with Win7.
There may be other utils if Memtest is not compatible.

Both Memtest and WD's drive util run outside of Windows, so boot failure is not a problem.

Another way this kind of problem can result (with XP for example) is with driver conflicts, or with application conflicts, including security software. (For example, a firewall might cause a hang at boot, but the next reboot, no problem... your problem sounds different; but without more information it is hard to tell.)

Again... I am not familiar enough with Win7... someone with Win7 experience will need to weigh in.

A Product like Apricorn will help you rescue your data, so that if you need to to a system restore, you will not have lost your data.

Another possible option is to boot to "Safe Mode"; if you can, then this will help resolve the driver or application conflict causing the problem.

See here: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Start-your-computer-in-safe-mode

I hope this gives you a start.

Let me first start off by saying I have limited knowledge on PCs.

I was browsing the internet when out of nowhere it started acting up. McAfee popped up in the bottom of the screen and my laptop began lagging pretty bad. Well it got stuck at that point with absolutely no response to any commands so I powered it off. When attempting to power back on, it loaded about 2/3 of the way on the welcome screen, and then froze at that point. It repeatedly does this. Upon hitting ESC, it says that my system BIOS are shadowed and my video BIOS are shadowed. Can anyone help? Thanks in advance.

Can you get into the Windows Safe Mode, by pressing F8 repeatedly when the computer is starting up?

My laptop is less than a year old and I've been having problems with it for the past 6 months or so. I have Windows Vista.
It started with weird noises from the the fan and then it started randomly blacking out but not turning all the way off. The yesterday morning I went to check my e-mail and the Startup Repair thing was running. I let it run for the whole day and it didn't change. Since then I've tried the System Restore (I restored it to five days ago and it didn't make any difference), the Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool (it said nothing was wrong with the memory), and the Recovery Manager (64 bits) (doesn't make a difference either). When I viewed the diagnostic and repair details it seemed to be working but eventually the error 0x0 started to show up. This is what it says:

I tried installing Ubuntu on my Inspiron 15, but now on startup, it gets stuck on the Dell loading screen. None of the buttons work, f2, f12, all that stuff doesn't do anything (pic included). I tried doing the hard reset by taking the battery out and holding the power button, but that didn't do anything. Anyone got any ideas?

Ran in to another issue with my Dell Inspiron 15. The computer froze on me and after a few minutes of no response I held down the power button and forced it to power down. When I restarted I couldn't get it past the windows welcome screen

Computer will boot to the screen that allows me to choose which windows user to log in with. I have my normal user profile that I use (admin) and a guest account. When I choose my normal account and enter my password it will stay on the screen as if it is preparing to log on to windows but never does. (I?ve kept it like that for over 4 hours, no result)
I can however get in to the guest account but for some reason there is no internet connection available and if I attempt to do admin user controls it freezes up after entering the admin password. I?m really confused here. This is what I?ve attempted so far
Doing the ?shift & restart? option and choosing Automatic repair. After attempting Automatic Repair I got this error:

D:\windows\system32\logfiles\srt\srttrail.txt


I went back and tried to do a system restore. After attempting system restore, I got this:

-
System restore filed while scanning the file system on the drive D:\ The drive might be corrupt. Try system restore after running chkdsk /R on this disk

An unspecified error occurred during system restore (0x81000204)


Rebooted once again to the command prompt, entered my admin password and typed the chkdsk /R command on the D drive. I get this mess... Read more
