Got an issue that I'm hoping the experts on here can answer...
My DV1660se is a wonderful machine and works just great for work/play, but I've noticed that if I have Microsoft Fax installed, I get this issue..
a) Boot the computer
b) Enter my password at the Welcome screen, and it says "Loading personal settings.." << It'll hang at this screen 1 out of every 3 times I boot up Windows.
Here's a configuration I've found that works and where I have the problem..
Has *anyone* had any issue or issues similar to this? I've tried Googling but found many oh many issues like this.
Fax Service Installed + Wireless ON = Hangs at "Loading Personal Settings"
Fax Service Installed + Wireless OFF = No problem
Fax Service Uninstalled + Wireless ON = No problem
Fax Service Uninstalled + Wireless OFF = No problem
I've done a destructive, full recovery (essentially wiped my hard drive) and imaged it back to the way the computer was when I got it.
The only software I run is...
This issue only seemed to creep up when I started to try and use the Fax service; otherwise, I've not had a single problem w/ the laptop. I love the battery life...
