Hi,

I have been encountering this problem everyday.

I turn on the Notebook, it says WINDOWS IS STARTING on a blue screen and then hangs.

I have no choice but to pull the power cable and re-start the Notebook.

Can someone kindly advise what is he problem I am facing and what is the solution.

Thanks.

Are you able to boot into Safe Mode?

How to start Windows in Safe Mode

If so, run Check-Disk from Safe Mode.

Right click on the C drive in Explorer and go Properties > Tools > Check Now (under Error Checking). Check both boxes then click "Start Now". A message will pop up saying that Error Checking will run after you restart the computer. Restart the computer and Error Checking will run automatically after the restart. After itís finished it will restart into Windows automatically.

Once you have restarted and CHKDSK has carried out the surface scan, Windows will boot normally. For a log of the results, right-click 'my computer' and select 'manage,' then open up 'event viewer\applications'.

Look for the most recent event from the 'winlogon' source and double click it to open the log. All the details about the operation CHKDSK just performed, including any bad sectors found, will be in here.

Hi hamluis,

Thanks.
Erm, I found these errors:

1) Windows cannot unload your classes registry file - it is still in use by other applications or services. The file will be unloaded when it is no longer in use.

2) Faulting application teatimer.exe, version 1.4.0.2, faulting module teatimer.exe, version 1.4.0.2, fault address 0x00003aaa.

3) Hanging application TeaTimer.exe, version 1.4.0.2, hang module hungapp, version 0.0.0.0, hang address 0x00000000.

What do I do now?

Thanks.

Are you still having the problem where it hangs at start-up?

teatimer is associated with Spybot. Maybe you could uninstall Spybot to see if it is the problem

Hi Budapest,

So far I have not experience the problem where it hangs at start-up.

I might uninstall Spybot. Possibly the latest version is unsuitable.

Thank you.

The reason I recommended running check-disk is that it often can solve boot problems. So maybe it managed to solve yours. Let us know if you have any more problems.
