Please try this first: click Start->All programs->Accessories->System Tools->System Restore and restore the computer to any date before this issue has occurred, then check.

If that does not work, is the model cq81? Can you please check at the bottom of the laptop for the full model, such as cq61-420us? Please let me know. Thank you.

I'm sorry; please note that it is msconfig (not misconfig ; there is no letter "i".) Please try, then let me know. Thank you.
