Skype for business stuck at splash screen on startup

Q: Skype for business stuck at splash screen on startup

I have updated my laptops and desktops to Windows 10 recently, coming from Windows 7.

On startup, and sometimes amidst usage, Skype for business starts itself and then hangs at the splash screen; thus I cannot disable it from starting automatically. How can I fully remove Skype for business and instead install the regular version of Skype?

Thanks in advance for some hints!

Preferred Solution: Skype for business stuck at splash screen on startup

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.)

Hi Useless User and welcome to Tenforums.

You can disable Skype for Business from starting with Windows permanently, by opening Task Manager; under the Startup tab, select the app and click the Disable button.

Alternately, you can go to All Settings> System>Apps & features, highlight Skype Meetings App, and select Uninstall.

Hope that helps!

Hi, I've got an old T510 that has developed a problem the last few days, now seems to be useful only as a doorstop  When you press the power button, the keyboard light flashes briefly, then the fingerprint scanner green light flashes once, there is a brief 'grunt' and all goes black, then a few seconds later it does the same thing again - it gets stuck in this loop till you pull the battery pack.So far I've tried to see if I can just get it to start to the splash screen doing the following:Pulling the HDDPulled the RAMResetting the CMOSChecked all ribbon connectionsCleaned the fan.Nothing has changed. Any other ideas? A couple of days before it died, it had a brief moment while running when the screen displayed a mirriad of rainbow colour lines but I have started it succesfully a few times between that happening and it failing to boot at all. Many thanks for any ideas!

After a power outage 3 weeks ago I was having issues with the system going down at around 5 minutes and then less and less time after that. I was told it was a display issue and to uninstall and reinstall my display drivers. I uninstalled my drivers and it was still the same. I felt like it was temperature related. I found my graphics card (Radeon 5700) was dirty. I cleaned it and thought I was back in business. Everything was back to normal, all I needed to do was update my graphics drivers. Once that was done, my computer would no longer load past the Windows splash screen.

I used Puppy Linux on a flash drive and I have access to everything. I can use the internet and access all my files. This to me says that it is not a hardware issue.

The fact that when I try to go into safe mode it gets stuck for more than a day on classpnp.sys (when I finally give up). I understand that classpnp.sys has loaded but, there is something after that that the computer can't load. I have seen some people have atipcie.sys load after classpnp.sys and it makes sense to me that it would be a graphics driver that is causing the issue.

I need my Windows 7 up and running for school and work projects. Any ideas, thoughts, or help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi guys,

I recently built my computer, about 3 months ago. Everything has been working great great up until this morning. When I first turned on my computer it lead me to a black screen saying to put in a boot device or something. I thought it was a random error so I restarted it and from that point on it only goes to the "ASUS" screen.

In that screen has a list of four keys and their routes, "f8 - boot menu" etc. I cannot access any of these because the keyboard seems to be off or null at this time. I tried another keyboard (both non usb, traditional slot ones) and it had the same effect.

So I tried to figure out what the issue is. I have two sticks of ram and I switched them, than tried one and then the other, nothing changed. I have two internal hd's, one for my os and the other for storage. When I unplugged the storage one nothing changed. When I unplugged the os one it seemed to change. The keyboard worked during the mobo screen this time and I was able to press "f8" to open a blue window on black that allows me to switch boots... However, I don't know what to do since the os is on the unplugged hd, so what am I to boot to? And if I boot to the cd I can't change anything on the unplugged hd?

So, please any help! Why is my computer stuck on that (i haven't installed or changed any hardware since I built it) screen and what should I do to fix it?

Screensaver is enabled and so is 'Display welcome screen when coming back from screensaver'.

This works most of the time, however on a regular basis the screensaver will resume to the following screen and just stay there forever.

The only thing to do is to press the power button, at which point a popup alerts that a user is logged in, do you still want to shut down.

ok this is going to sound weird. My windows XP is stuck on the splash screen when I boot up i've tried doing everything even accidently reinstalled it on my back up drive. but when I want to run it on my primary drive all it does is stick on the splash screen done it 12 hours at a time 2 times. I can get into safe mode with networking perfectly fine. all I did was boot up a floppy disc to check contents then PC froze except mouse for an hour so I rebooted since then can't log on. any ideas?

A:XP stuck on splash screen

You could try doing a repaor install of XP. however if it is a piece of hardware that has become defective and is causing the problem then a repair install isnt going to fix it.

Hi all,

Ever since I applied Microsoft's most recent critical update (a security patch of course) I have had a hard time restarting. I've been getting hung up on the splash screen (in my case the Alienware alien head) and the actual boot process never begins. I was able to overcome if before by unplugging the pc but now even that doesn't work and I have been stuck on the splas fo hours now. Any idea how to get past this?

Okay this one has me stumped. I have system I just finished putting together with some pieces from left over from an upgrade and some new pieces as well. I get XP Home to install and everything and even get many things updated and all looks fine. Until you power down. Once you have powered the system down and come back to it.... you turn it on and the windows splash screen comes on and it the little lights run back and forth like four times and then when they get to the end of the little box, everything stalls out. The keyboard dies, the hdd activity light stops working, everything. I have tried using the restore functions in the XP disk to no avail. I even brought the hdd back and got a new one thinking it had something to do with the hdd being bad or something. But no the new one does the same thing. I have tried contacting Microsoft but they are no help at all... they won't help you unless you get the product ID number which you need to be in Windows to get.

Does anyone have any idea what is going on? Is there a jumper on my Motherboard I should change? I have been pulling my hair out all day with this one. I have quite a bit of computer experience and nothing has frustrated me quite like this one. Maybe I am just looking too hard and the answer is in front of me.

Any help would be appreciated.

A:Xp Home gets stuck on Splash Screen

Have you checked in the BIOS lately, you might be suffering from CMOS battery failure, the way to check is set the BIOS up (if its lost its settings) and when you turn the PC off by shutting down from the desktop leave the power supply 'ON', with an ATX PSU to conform to the spec it supplies a trickle of juice to the CMOS even when the PC is off, the only time it uses the battery is when the PSU is disconnected from the mains supply. If the PC boots next time 'cos the settings have stuck, try next time pulling the plug from the wall overnight and if it fails next day, go get a new CMOS battery- usually a 2302 about ?2.00.

I'm working on the tenuous assumption that the BIOS is set to auto detect the drives so it knows where your OS is but then cant load drivers etc for the OS as the BIOS hasn't given the OS any hardware details to pole.

Of course it could be dodgy memory or a disk too.

Windows seems to start, i see the blue logo, the loading circle doing it's thing, but that's it ... firsts i thought i just need to be more patience, but i'm running this now for roundabout 4 hours on my notebook, and nothing happens...

I'm trying this now for a week, i don't know what else to do :/

I currently use a 600x900 resolution monitor, but couple of days ago I attached a 1080p Samsung Tv and used it as a PC monitor. When I returned back to my original 1600x900 monitor the PC got stuck at the splash screen and didn't boot. I tried reseating the RAM and my Graphics Card but still it is giving the problem.

Before i faced this issue i occasionally heard clicking sounds in my HDD, ran many tests but none reported any problem. I even posted a question about that here in TSG. I dont know what to do. Tried resetting bios by removing the small battery from the mobo but still the same issue.

I tried booting live Ubuntu CD and that gave some error with some text mentioning some problem with atapi sata something like that, forgot to write that error code and now it is not showing up. But the PC is not working.

It seems that my HDD have some issues. Don't know exactly whats causing the problem as testing the hdd shows no problem.

This pc is old that i built in 2013 but didn't use it that often other than gaming.

Following are some info that might be useful.

Trying to clean up a relatives computer here. I was installing windows updates since it was quite out of date in that regard. Everything went fine until the sp3 update. after rebooting the computer was stuck at the splash screen. Tried booting into safe mode and it stalls there too. So I tried booting with the xp install disc to get to the recovery console and possibly just wipe the drive and start over but it stalls there too. It loads all the files and then stalls at the "setup is starting windows" screen

So I can not boot windows normally, in safe mode, or from the xp disc. This little favor for my niece has just turned into a nightmare. Any ideas?

It's so weird before it was rare (stuck at splash screen glitch) i did the upgrade from win 7 to 10 and my system had random skips and black screens. Then my 120 ssd died but not before i could clone it and it did the same on the new ssd. So i tried a clean install and cured all my problems all but 1, on cold boots i get to the windows splash screen before login and the little circle made of dots barely moves and takes about 5 minutes to get to the password screen. Once i get the login screen its fast as heck and all is well but wth is up with the splash screen? Before it was rare though like one out of ten boots would do that now fresh install every boot is crazy slow.

When we were finished it worked fine and there were no issues however I later came home woth the PC to find out it had stopped working. The issue is that I was stuck on the splash screen of the motherboard and couldn't enter the bios with the on screen commands (keyboard would not respond). So i took it back to my friend and we found out that the power supply was the issue however upon buying a new power supply, i am again stuck on the splash screen. I have tried using different keyboard and mouse and clearing the CMOS.

So basically, I have an MSI CX61 2QF Nvidia Geforce 940m 4gb ram, running windows 10. The screen broke, so my friend put a new screen on, in the mean time i had moved my HDD into my old laptop and used that. Fine. Now I have my MSI laptop back and the screen is fine, MSi splash screen comes up, then it goes to the little circle loading thing, and it just sits there. The longest I've waited is 15 minutes,but it just keeps 'loading' (though it clearly isn't). At first it got stuck on AVG watchdog screen, but I deleted AVG and it still doesn't work. I managed to get in on Safe Mode, but then I realised I didn't know what the next step is. The fact I could boot up in safe mode made me think it's not a hardware issue, I think the laptop is fine, but it just won't load at all. What should I do once in safe mode or what else should i do otherwise?

Hello everyone,
I have a Dell 15R 7520 for a while now and it always worked great until a few days back it started giving me a blue screen error "DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE". After that it would sometimes got stuck on the dell splash screen but a quick reset would make it boot again normally. I updated all the drivers I could find to see if it would get better but didnt work.
This problem was getting worse and worse until one day I got another blue screen error "CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED". After that it rarelly boots and usually just stay stuck on the Dell splash screen. Also when booting it does a lot of beeping sounds (more than 4) and something that seems like HD or disc reading (that is no disk inserted)
I have already tried a few thing from this forum:
* Unplug all power sources and battery, hold down the power button and reboot.
* Change a BIOS setting from SMART Intel Boot (something like that) to AHCI and then back.
* Reseat the memory
But its getting really hard to retry anything because when its stuck in the splash screen i can`t even access the BIOS.
I would really appreciate any help =D

Hi everyone,

I've run into a problem and I'm hoping someone can help. I've run into a roadblock and I'm not sure what to do next.

I found a motherboard and CPU that wasn't being used (new in box). Older LGA1156, but hey, still usable. Anyway, I had some other components and someone just gifted me a new video card, so I thought I'd throw a system together. Assembly went smoothly without issue.

The problem;
When I try to install W7Pro, the install gets to the point where it's just finished copying the files and is starting the splash screen before freezing (or occasionally rebooting). I've been going out of my mind the last few days trying to figure out how to fix this. I've reseated everything (CPU, RAM, video card, cables) with nothing working. I've tried another disk as well. Nothing has worked.

I decided to stick an XP CD (SP2). THAT installed without a hitch. So I'm really stuck as to how to proceed. I'm hoping someone here can give me some insight into where the problem might be.

The details;
Intel DQ57TML w/ Core i5.
80Gb SSD hard drive (and I've also tried a traditional HD as well)
Sapphire R7/260X
Windows 7 Pro (pre-SP1)
800w PS.
Internal DVDRW (tried external as well...same results)

Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks.

I thought it was just extremely dead, so I turned it off again and let it charge for ~15 min, and when I turned it on for a 2nd time it lagged on the splash screen again, so I started button smashing. none of the F1-F12 keys did anything, but after I hit CTRL+ALT+DELETE the screne turned on and off & then I hit esc and it magically it booted up again. The next morning it worked fine, until I unplugged it and used it until it did its thing again and shut down at ~10% charged how I like it. And then it hung up again no F1-F12 keys do anything, the one touch recovery key just turns it on with the splash screen still stuck, and CTRL+ALT+DELETE makes the splash screne turn on and off for a second. If I leave it on it will stay on the splash screne indefinitly or until it dies, I've let it charge and discharge a few times and that changes nothing.   Some stats: Model: G580 20150 64 bit                             OS: windows 10 upgraded from 8 (unsupported I know)                 Processor: core i5 I've gathered it's either bios issue or a hdd issue, but all the form posts here are for windows 7, so I can't really go by that.

A:G 580 20150 stuck on splash screen (windows 10)

The Li Polymer battery that is inside your main "battery case" is managed by a small electronics board or "smart" board that regulates power drain and charge to optimize battery run time and life span.  Running it flat then recharging is not a bad idea, but run battery diagnostics from the Lenovo Energy Manager and see if it needs to be replaced.
Windows 10 is still a bit buggy in many ways, so this may be the result of a driver or other software hanging up at boot time and not really based on hardware issues.  Try updating drivers, check BIOS settings and run diagnostics, then report back with findings.
Good luck.

A:Computer stuck on blue hp splash screen.

you should be able to do a fresh install but that wont promise you success, why did he give it to you anyway, because it didnt work? Did you ask him why it didnt work at all.

So yesterday I got a GeForce GTX 960 4GB to install into my PC. However after installing it and all that jazz, my computer gets stuck on the BIOS splash screen and beeps. The beeps are one short beep, then 30 seconds later a short beep followed by 3 shorter beeps.

I know for a fact that it isn't my RAM because I can put my old card in and everything works fine. I also have a VisionTek 450w dedicated GPU power supply that takes up a CD reader slot so power consumption is totally fine.

I tried updating my bios, but there doesn't seem to be an update available. So at this point I think I need a new motherboard.

My specs are as follows;

Motherboard: Pegatron IPISB-CH2

BIOS: AMI 7.12

CPU: Intel Core i5-2320 (Sandybridge) (95W), 3.0 GHz


HDD: 1 TB WD Harddrive that I bought 2 months ago

GPU before: GTX 650 Ti 1 Gb

After: GTX 960 4GB

Thanks for all the help!

A:PC stuck on BIOS Splash Screen after installing new GPU

I can put my old card in and everything works fine.Click to expand...

So at this point I think I need a new motherboard.Click to expand...

This makes no sense at all. If you reinstall your old card and everything works, why in the world would you think you need a new mb???
That scenario points at a failed or DOA card NOT a failed mb.

If you are intent on gaming, I would give serious consideration to building a gaming system. Big box systems like dell, hp, etc are fine for what they are intended to do; email, run office, watch videos, etc. The hardware is just not up to the stress of gaming. There is more to a gaming system than simply installing a video card and a pw supply.

I don't know if this is the right place to post this because I'm new here. Sorry if it's in the wrong place. Today I was updating the graphics driver and GeForce experience. Everything seemed to go fine with the graphics driver, but when I was updating GeForce experience, the installation hung at the very end so I force closed it. Now when I restarted the computer, windows hung at the splash screen. Now I can't get it to boot at all. I tried my recovery disk and windows install disk, and both of them also hang at the splash screen. They only boot successfully when I unplug the SSD that has the OS installed on it. Now I am stuck as to what to do next. I also tried resetting the bios and that didn't do anything either. Please help me. I need this computer for my homework and I am being forced to type this entire paragraph on my iPad right now.

A:Windows gets stuck at splash screen when booting

I have now discovered that if I leave the computer on for around 5 minutes or so sitting on the splash screen, it does boot. This way worse than it used to be because I have an SSD. I used to see the splash screen for about 5 seconds before the computer would continue to boot into windows. So any help diagnosing the problem would be appreciated. I am now running chkdsk and I will post the results when it is finished.

I have a project due online in 2 hours, and I can not get windows to boot or change BIOS settings.
Whenever my computer starts up, it just gets stuck on the Gigabyte splash screen.

I've tried just about everything and I am no longer convinced that it is a HDD issue.
It freezes when I enter the splash screen, so I can not go to BIOS settings or anything like that.

If it happened any time after today this would be fine with me, I would be patient.
But I can't afford a 0 on this project, especially after I already worked so hard on it and all I had to do was make the finishing touches.

If anyone could help me out at all, I would appreciate it so much.

I had two Zotac Geforce cards one being the 1060 and the other 790 and neither would get pass the hp logo splash screen. There was also 3 beeps that came from the system. Brought it to a techy and he told me that the card is not compatible which do not make sence. A friend of mine has a i5 which mine is a i7 and he has no trouble with his cards. My next option is to buy a msi Raeon rx 480 direct x 12 rx480 gaming x 4g 4gb 256-bit gddr5 pci express 3.0 x 16 hdcp ready crossfirex support atx video card.  I have spent 2 days googleing and cannot not come up with a solution. Im thinking this card will work cause there is a old AMD Radeon HD 7570. Any solutions ? Will this work? Please someone help me.

Hi everyone. I've got a big problem with my laptop. I will explain the whole situation.  I recently upgrade my laptop with a Samsung Evo ssd and a 8 Gb ram ddr3 1600. At the beginning everything was fine but then, sometimes I got screen problems (like flickering) and windows 10 crashed. Now the biggest problem : my laptop is stuck at lenovo logo with loading dots. Even if I try to load USB windows tool (to install new os) it doesn't work. I also tried to install Ubuntu unsuccessfully. I searched on the web all the possible solutions. I temporary removed the battery, ac adapter and hold the power button for 30 secs, but nothing. I also read to remove the cmos battery but I can't locate it in my IdeaPad z500. I also searched on the hardware maintainance pdf but there is nothing about that. I also removed ssd and new ram  with old components but it's still the same. I don't know what to do know, please help me!! I hope I didn't screw my laptop
