My pc had some of it's system files crashed and it did not boot. So I re-installed Windows in C:\ Drive and now things are okay, except for one problem. Whenever I shut-down and then open it again, it only shows a black screen (the monitor button is green, not orange, at this point) and after some 3 minutes, on the bottom of the black screen, a white Split-bar like progress meter shows up in which each black bar gradually becomes white. This continues till the progress reaches the middle. Then windows appears and the rest loads to the desktop. So my question is, how do I get around this progress bar? The specs: OS: Microsoft Windows XP Professional (5.1, Build 2600) System Model: D915GAV_ Processor: Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 3.00GHz (2 CPUs) Memory: 510 MB Ram DX version: 9.0c Are display specs required also? Also, one more question. How do I enable Task Manager?
