    Hello everyone,
    Here's my problem. When I turn the power on my computer back on I always get this message:
    dsca.exe-application error
    The application failed to initialize properly (oxcoooo135) click ok to terminate the application.
    When I click ok I can then go to windows. What does this mean?

    That dsca application is used by Dell and also by Adobe Air.
    The error code is simply a Windows error code for - application or porgramme failed to load.
    On first post beep, press F8 and load safe mode.
    See if it still occurs.

    Come back on that please.

    Megabite,
    Thanks for the advice, it worked, it wants me to select normal startup. It was on normal until I unchecked it, it now is on selected startup. It wants me to select normal startup. Is that what I should do?
