I recently resetted my laptop due to this problem, but it still persisted. Command prompt opens and closes very quickly on startup, I can't read the message on command prompt because it flashes really quickly.

I looked online and came across this: http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-2107684/command-prompt-opens-closes-startup.html

I booted my laptop in safe mode but it still happened, it opened and quickly closed command prompt. This problem doesnt occur on my desktop. Any solutions for this issue?

Thanks in advance

It's not necessarily an "issue" - one of my "run at startup" programs used to cause this but it's some time ago so I cant remember what it was - maybe AMD Catalyst Control Centre or some other hardware related program - so possibly try disabling every optional program or process you have set to run at startup & see if the problem goes away.

I've seen this happen on many machines for precisely the same general reason described by rqt.  I don't consider this a problem at all unless the window stays open or something about the machine is misbehaving once startup is complete.  Even when the latter has happened, I've never traced it back to anything that triggers a Command Prompt window as part of running its own startup script.

Open Task Manager \ More details \ Startup tab.  You can check to see what you have starting there.  As others have said this might be a legitimate program that runs a command line command when it starts.

Try video recording your startup - see if you can then use pause to read the command prompt message.
