When I turn on the computer, it does not show my office. It comes up with a white screen

Original title: bad start.

On May 15, 2013, I was prompted to download 8 updates from Microsoft. Since then when I turn on the computer, it does not show my office. It comes with a white screen. The only way to see the desktop is at the stop 'wrong' to turn off the power to the computer. Then I reboot, it just asking if I want to boot up normally, I say Yes and all is well on the office. Seems related to downloads of May 15, 2013. Any ideas?



Method 1:

I suggest you to select last known good Configuration in Windows Advanced options and check if it works.

To do this:

a. restart the computer and press the F8 key for about four to five times.

b. you will see the that last known good Configuration in the Advanced Windows options.

c. Select last known good Configuration and press enter.

Method 2:

See the article and check if that helps:

What to do if Windows does not start correctly


For more protection, use System Restore backup and restore, which is designed to help save email, photos, documents and other personal files.

Note: when checking your drive hard for errors, if bad sectors are found, it tries to repair this sector and if all the available data may be lost.

    You can disable hibernation if it is enabled and you do not...

    When you Hibernate your computer, Windows saves the contents of the system memory in the hiberfil.sys file. As a result, the size of the hiberfil.sys file will always be equal to the amount of physical memory in your system. If you don't use the Hibernate feature and want to reclaim the space used by Windows for the hiberfil.sys file, perform the following steps:

    -Start the Control Panel Power Options applet (go to start, settings, Control Panel, and then click Power Options).
    -Select the Hibernate tab, uncheck "Activate the hibernation", and then click OK. Although you might think otherwise, selecting never under "Hibernate" option on the power management tab does not delete the hiberfil.sys file.
    -Windows remove the "Hibernate" option on the power management tab and delete the hiberfil.sys file.

    You can control the amount of space your system restore can use...

    1. Click Start, right click my computer and then click Properties.
    2. click on the System Restore tab.
    3. highlight one of your readers (or C: If you only) and click on the button "settings".
    4 change the percentage of disk space you want to allow... I suggest moving the slider until you have about 1 GB (1024 MB or close to that...)
    5. click on OK. Then click OK again.

    You can control the amount of space used may or may not temporary Internet files...

    Empty the temporary Internet files and reduce the size, that it stores a size between 64 MB and 128 MB...

    -Open a copy of Microsoft Internet Explorer.
    -Select TOOLS - Internet Options.
    -On the general tab in the section 'Temporary Internet files', follow these steps:
    -Click on 'Delete the Cookies' (click OK)
    -Click on "Settings" and change the "amount of disk space to use: ' something between 64 MB and 128 MB. (There may be many more now.)
    -Click OK.
    -Click on 'Delete files', then select "Delete all offline content" (the box), and then click OK. (If you had a LOT, it can take 2 to 10 minutes or more).
    -Once it's done, click OK, close Internet Explorer, open Internet Explorer.

    I have just re installed Windows XP. Windows installed after three attempts. When I turn on the computer there are three choices of Windows XP. Only the first works how to remove the other two?

    I have a hard drive. At least two partitions. C: 74.7 GB with 63.3 freespace
    D: 74.2 GB with 70.6 freespace
    These are my original specifications of the hard drive: 160 GB (7200 RPM) SERIAL ATA HARD DRIVE WI
    So I suspect there are at least one or more partitions hidden leaving 11.1 GB for hidden partitions!
    Windows is present on both drives C: & D:. In the directory windows on C:, the oldest entry is 19.12.12, 21.43 last 21.12.12, 22.50
    The first entry in the directory windows on D: is 19.12.12, 18.42 the last 21.12.12, 22.40
    I hope that makes sense to someone, any help gratefully received!

    My CD/DVD drive has stopped working.  My computer recognizes the drive but when I put a disk in it cannot read.  I tried multiple disks, but nothing will work.  I tried microsoft fixit, but it does not work.  He said that the media cd/DVD drive is not readable.  Help, please.

    Is that your CD/DVD drive is older than 1 year?  Then, the drive may be defective, with a faulty lens.
