Computer Tips; Repair Hang on Start UP (Windows Logo)

Hello, meet you again on the last Friday this month. Today, thecybergal shares you tips how to repair Windows hangs when Windows logo appears. This article was taken from my experience.

So my computer cannot get into Windows but stops when the Windows logo appears. To fix it, we can improve through the Repair Console. Booting the computer with the Windows XP CD and press R at the time of the first dialog appears.
Do these Windows trick bellow:
  1. Type the Administrator password to get into Windows directory.
  2. Make a temporary directory to save all configurations, "md thecybergal" (without quotes).
  3. Copy all configuration files, actually there are five configuration files: software, system, sam, security, and default to the temporary directory we created. Type the syntax bellow followed by enter button.
    • copy c:\windows\system32\config\system c:\windows\thecybergal\software
    • copy c:\windows\system32\config\software c:\windows\thecybergal\system
    • copy c:\windows\system32\config\sam c:\windows\thecybergal\sam
    • copy c:\windows\system32\config\security c:\windows\thecybergal\security
    • copy c:\windows\system32\config\default c:\windows\thecybergal\default
  4. Delete the old configuration files,
    • delete c:\windows\system32\config\software
    • delete c:\windows\system32\config\system
    • delete c:\windows\system32\config\sam
    • delete c:\windows\system32\config\security
    • delete c:\windows\system32\config\default
  5. Copy the new configuration files which will replace the deleted files.
    • copy c:\windows\repair\system c:\windows\system32\config\software
    • copy c:\windows\repair\software c:\windows\system32\config\system
    • copy c:\windows\repair\sam c:\windows\system32\config\sam
    • copy c:\windows\repair\security c:\windows\system32\config\security
    • copy c:\windows\repair\default c:\windows\system32\config\default
If you feel the Windows tips mentioned above quite confusing, you can use the LiveCD to fix it. This method may be more familiar because you just have to copy-paste like your Windows habitual. I usually use miniPE to do something with LiveCD

OK, that's all Windows tips today. I hope it will be useful for you.
