    I disabled all in MSCONFIG


    So I wanted to play a game, and it wasn't working, I went through the troubleshooting on that and it said to disable all on MSCONFIG, I did that and restarted my computer, but for some reason all of my windows system function stopped working, such as Internet and sound. I re-enabled and reset my PC twice but it still hasn't reset. Please help?

    Did you check the Services tab in MSCONFIG to confirm all the services have been enabled?

    Do a System Restore to before you disabled everything, that should fix it.

    I tried that but I said something about the system application that runs this is disabled.

    Hey guys, thanks for all of your help, but in the end none of them worked. I looked at some other forums on the Internet and found something. If you find this thread, all you have to do is this.

    1. Go to control panel and in the search bar type "Services"
    2. Right click EVERYTHING and change all of them to Automatic (this takes a while but trust me)
    3. It should work!


    Again thank you guys.
