I just typed the long question--now--it is asking me to type it again---yucky--OK--#1--You helped once before. #2--When the computer starts, a black-n-white screen flashes on and off for about 2 seconds and then disappears after I open my programs. I tried to simply go to safe mode to open, but it did not help.. I pressed F2 several times and then just opened safe mode. I'm sure I needed to do something---like select something---before going to safe mode as I did nothing and nothing happens to cure the problem of the blinking black-n-white screen at the very beginning of the computer opening up. Not very serious----your thoughts.
Hello, I'm Lindie, and I’m a moderator for this topic.
No Problem---thanks Lindie
Hello, Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX continue to look for a professional to assist you. Please let me know if I can be of any further assistance while you wait. Best,
I did lots of installments recently due to a problem with SKYPE---most were downloads relating to my webcamera
yes--a window that opens so fast and closes so fast that I have trouble reading the words on it. The window is a black background and white "colored" wording
are you available now?
ONLY 4 PROGRAMS
2 PROGRAMS IN ADOBE,
1 IN BLUETOOTH, DROPBOX,
AND ONE -----NOTE 2007 SCREEN CLIPPER AND LAUNCHER
i JUST DRAGGED ADOBE ACROBAT TO THE DESKTOP. IT CAUSES AN ICON TO APPEAR WITH A SMALL ARROW IN THE LEFT CORNER OF THE ICON.
IS THIS CORRECT? SHOULD I DO THIS WITH THE OTHERS NOW?
I did what you asked---but the problem is still there!
Are you available now?
First you said to drag and drop the start up programs and now you say---copy and paste---are the results the same?
You said copy and paste--I did that---Now the folder is empty! Now I closed the computer 2 times, but still no results. And how do u get my start up programs back?
You originally said---drag and drop--
"Try dragging all of them out to your desktop then restart your computer and see if you still see anything running like before, then let me know."
I did what you said --now I no longer have any start-up programs. Do I need them? How do I get them back?
My original problem is still there!
My original problem still exists---nothing changed! No results!
I removed all 4 programs from the Startup---the folder is empty. The screen still comes on for a couple of seconds. Any better thoughts? Marty
OK--I figured out how to pause the screen to see the blinking black-n-white screen. I just kep pressing the END button. I figured this out with anyones help!
Now, let's try to determine how to solve my original question! Originally, I wrote:
Now--I found out that this blinking screen is called WINDOWS BOOT MANAGER--It is asking me to choose an operating system to start or press tab to select a tool----I do not understand these words
It says in the middle of the page which is all black with the wording in white---to use advanced option---press F8----blah, blah, blah----
I do not think this screen should be there for me to see unless I need to do something to get rid of it!
This is what I have been trying to tell you---any ideas?
I am working in China. Ihad a problem with my SKYPE camera and the computer indicated I was missing some drivers for the camera. I downloaded SKYPE several times trying to make my camera work, but this did not happen. I did not have a copy of Windows 7 to download.
I ran many programs to clean the computer and upgrade it---like Hard Disc tune-up, Mem Turbo-PC Optimizer,Advanced system optimizer, smart PC care, etc.
I believe that one needs to click onto some area in the Boot Manager screen and it will fix itself as it seems as you say to think there is more than one Windows 7 version.
What do I click?
I tried to send you a picture, but it was denied

Windows 7 ( C:\Windows) : CurrentOS: Default OS
This line is highlighted in a blue color
The only other thing is the next line---which says--
Advanced Tech Support Recovery (Windows)
also it has a place saying time out and it shows 1 second
in a box
I did what you said but the Windows Boot manager screen still flashes on and off. No luck yet! However, I was excited and thought that after I took out the 1 sec pause, that it would go away---unfortunately---it is still there!
I went back through your steps, and I did the steps
correctly that you asked me to do.
I did notice that there was a tab called System Protection,
and I noticed that
RECOVERY was turned OFF
DATAPART1(D) was turned OFF
OS(CJ (System) was turned ON
Is this correct? Or should these other items
that are turned OFF, be also turned ON?
Dan--your instructions did not work for me---you said
If you would please, go to accessories, ( I did this) then command prompt and right click on it, ( I did this ), select Run as Administrator
Whoops---no such words were seen when I right click!
and click Yes
when it asks if you really want to do this. At the command prompt,
type BCDEDIT. This will display everything entered and in the data
store where Windows 7 gets the boot instructions from.
If there are multiple entries under the heading of Windows Boot Loader,
chances are one of these is what is causing the problem.
Let me know what you find.
Please remember to rate my service once you have all the information you need. If you have any other questions, please ask me –
I went to Accessories, then command prompt---I right clicked---but no place to select "RUN"!
I am stuck on your instructions! Sorry
Waitinf for your reply to the message below--Marty--if i could get an email address that will accept my pictures, I could more clearly show all to you---but -------
DANTHIS INFORMATION BELOW IS WHAT I SEE!Access Denied
I am not having problems seeing the website, but placing pictures within the body of the messages did not work!
I am still seeing the "Boot" screen flash on for a second when I turn on the computer---it won't go away! No change since we began!
