Lost 1600 configuration after saving to startup-config

I have a config that I loaded into a Cisco 1620 router afterwhich I:
write memory and then show conf to verify it is the config I want.

I then copy running-config startup-config and verify that both are correct.

However, upon power cycling the router all interfaces go into shutdown and I have to start
the configuration over again.  Did I miss a step?

Thank you.

Sounds like your config register is set to ignore the startup config.

From
router>show ver
look for  
    Configuration register is 0x2102  <=== if it is not this, then you just have to change it:

Router>en
Password:
Router#config t
Router(config)#config-register 0x2102

Ok, my register is set to 2142.   I will change it when I get back to the office!

Thank you!
