How To Fix QuickBooks Won’t Start Problem?
Solution 1: Download And Use The QBRefresher Tool
Most QuickBooks Users do not pay attention to the processes that are running in the background which are not even required at the moment. Sometimes a few of these processes become unresponsive and affect the overall system speed. You can check which processes are running in the background by opening Task manager on your screen. We recommend that you download and use the QBRefresher Tool to end the QuickBooks processes which are no longer responding. This tool can also implement a mini-repair process to make sure that everything is working. Run the tool on your QuickBooks then try to re-open your QuickBooks.
Solution 2: Suppress The QuickBooks Desktop Application
Check for damage in your QuickBooks Company file and also see to it that your QuickBooks software is working fine. It is possible that your QuickBooks software may perhaps be trying to open the earlier company file. That is why it is vital that you find out if the problem is with the QuickBooks software or the company file. To do that, follow these steps:
- Double-click on the QuickBooks icon on your desktop while pressing and holding the Ctrl key on your keyboard. Make sure that you keep pressing the Ctrl key till the “No Company Open” window appears on your screen or your QuickBooks shows an error.
- Now, choose a company file and click on the Open button.
Solution 3: Restart Your Computer
This might sound like a very simple step and it is but do not under evaluate the effectiveness of this step because of the simplicity. Restarting your computer gets rid of the processes that were running in the background and eating up the processing power of your computer. Try to open your QuickBooks Company file after restarting your computer.
Solution 4: Run The QBInstall Tool
QuickBooks is a self-sufficient software and only in rare cases you have to get help from an external source. QuickBooks Install Diagnostic tool or QBInstall tool comes pre-loaded within the software. It can easily fix the errors that are appearing on your screen while opening QuickBooks.
