Win 8 Start Up System Config


highside

Likes # 0

Help please. Dont think this is Win 8 specific but it affects my Win 8 Acer but not my Win 7 laptop, In System Config there are three Start Up options, Normal, Diagnostic & Selective. My Win 8 PC will run in Selective only, always reverts to that if I select either of the others. All items are checked in Start Up & System. Have tried a few things to no avail like memory tests and sfc.

(On my Win 7 PC if I untick a Start Up item then it goes from Normal to Selective which seems reasonable? It returns to Normal when the item is rechecked.)

Any help much appreciated Thanks

Just a thought, if you bring up task manager then the start-up tab, check to see if any program is disabled. This might be why it is showing as Selective.

Selective just means that you have some start up programs that are not needed disabled and that would be normal for most computers.
