    windows me freezes on booting

    Locked

    by dbhoomi ·

    I am having problem booting my machine. When ever I try to boot, the scandisk strats up and then in the midway it freezes. I would appreciate if some one could help me fix this problem.

    Thanks,
    DB

      This could be caused by a number of thiings
      first try booting the system into safe mode
      Now try running scandisk and defrag the drive
      disable the screen saver
      update the video drivers
      Check the system to see what programs are loading at startup
      The anti-virus software could be scanning files
      While in safe mode delete the history and temp folder

      Last post is bang on, you may want to use msconfig’s ‘Startup.ini’tab to see that no unexpected junk is loading at startup.
      The best solution, upgrade to WINXP or downgrade to WIN98. Win98 can’t really be considered downgrading when removing ME though.
