Hey timmyboy04,

Welcome to Microsoft Answers Forum!

I would like to ask you few questions in order to get a better understanding of this issue.

  • How long have you had this issue?
  • Did anything change on your system right before this problem occurred - any new hardware devices installed?  Any new software or updates installed?

I suggest you to troubleshoot this matter with a Clean Boot to see if we can pinpoint a program or driver that could be causing a error message on Startup.
 

A Clean Boot allows us to start Windows with certain programs and drivers turned off or on by selection. By doing this through trial-and-error we can hopefully pinpoint a specific cause of this issue. Here is how to troubleshoot with a Clean Boot:

First Step: Perform a Clean Boot

1. Log on to your computer with an administrative account.

2. Click Start.

3.  Type msconfig.exe in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER to start the System Configuration Utility.

4.  If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type your password, or click Continue.

5. In the General tab, click Selective Startup, and then click to uncheck the Load startup items check box.

6. On the Services tab, click to select the Hide all Microsoft services check box, and then click Disable all.

*NOTE: Following this step lets Microsoft services continue to run. These services include Networking, Plug and Play, Event Logging, Error Reporting, and other services. If you disable these services, you may permanently delete all restore points. Do not do this if you want to use the System Restore utility together with existing restore points.

7.       Click OK, and then click Restart.

Second Step: Enable Half of the Services

1.  Start the System Configuration Utility. Refer to the steps above if you need to see how to do this.

2.  Click the Services tab, and then click to select the Hide all Microsoft services check box.

3.   Click to select half of the check boxes in the Service list.

4. Click OK, and then click Restart.

Third Step: Determine whether the problem returns

a. If the problem still occurs, repeat the First Step and the Second Step. In the Second Step, click to clear half of the check boxes that you originally selected in the Service list.

b. If the problem does not occur, repeat the First Step and the Second Step. In the Second Step, select only half of the remaining check boxes that are cleared in the Service list. Repeat these steps until you have selected all the check boxes.

c. If only one service is selected in the Service list, and you still experience the problem, the selected service causes the problem. Go to the Fourth Step. If no service causes this problem, go to the Second Step.

Fourth Step: Resolve the Problem

After you determine the startup item or the service that causes the problem, contact the program manufacturer to determine whether the problem can be resolved. Or, run the System Configuration Utility, and then click to clear the check box for the problem item.

Fifth Step: Resolve the Problem

After you have finished troubleshooting, follow these steps to reset the computer to start as usual:

1.  Click Start.

2.  Type msconfig.exe in the Start Search box and then press ENTER.

3.  If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type your password, or click Continue.

4. On the General tab, click the Normal Startup option, and then click OK.

5. When you are prompted to restart the computer, click Restart.

Here is the KB article these steps came from:

We look forward to hearing back from you on your results.
