|Hello, all, thanks for your help! I have done a defrag and a clean up using system tools, also the drive check which I guess was OK ... it didn't say there was a problem or no, it just ran through everything. ?? I also looked at some previous posts as suggested by Derek and went in and totally disabled everything on my startup and tried that. It seemed to start up faster, but kept flashing up that I should select normal start up or something ... I tried to ipconfig / all but the display won't stay up long enough for me to read to copy. How do I post a copy of this? Just highlight, copy and paste on here? When I run ipconfig / all it just biefly flashes up with white letters on a black background and then is gone. I am wondering, too, if this has to do with the wireless internet somehow ... my computer makes a lot of noise sometimes, not from the fan, but like the computer is working?? Clickety clackety, ya know? Especially after startup until it gets through the first 30-45 minutes. Then it's usually real quiet and mostly I just hear the fan slightly.|
If you can tell me how to post the results of my ipconfig / all I will do so. Sorry it is taking me so long to respond. I have a boat load of apples to pick and can and it takes forever for me to get into here when I reboot.
Thanks for all your help ... I may just need to get a pro to look at this hands on. If no one can think of any more ideas, that's OK, and I will post back if I get this figured out.
