    Thanks for your response

    This may be due to overheating of fan

    You should check where fan is sitting - is it near a heat source? Is it sitting on something that might block the ventilation?

    Can you feel ANY hot air coming out of the exhaust port?

    Does the fan initially kick-in when you power on, then subside?

ALL I KNOW IS ITS A DELL OPTIPLEX 960 AND I TRIED TO DO A REBOOT BY HITTING F2 AND THEN HOLDING ALT AND F AT THE SAME TIME.


Hi Tiffany,

it sounds like there has been some sort of corruption of the files on the hard disk. You should see about booting from the Windows installation CD / DVD and copying all the files that are of importance to you (documents, photos, music, etc.) on to an external hard drive connected to the USB port or installed as a slave drive internally. Once you have saved all the files you need, shut off the PC and disconnect / remove the drive with your files. Then reinstall Windows again. Once done, shut off the PC and reconnect the drive with your files and copy them back to the hard drive and you should be good to go unless he drive is beginning to fail - in which case purchasing a new hard drive would be a good idea.

I cant use my camera because its being used but another app... but i have no idea how to locate or close the app


I would suspect it in a startup program, say CyberLink. It's set to start at Windows Startup. Open the webcam software for your laptop and disable Start at Windows, OR download CCLEANER freeware at : http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/ .This is a good program to learn to use. You can clean the junk from your machine and in the TOOLS section, STARTUP, look for your webcam startup program, disable it. Disable ALL unnessary startup programs to speed boot and shut downs.

I just replaced my cpu fan on my desktop pc and now it keeps shutting down at startup after about 15 seconds.


Your processor is overheating. Along with the CPU fan, there must be an adequate amount of thermal paste between the processor and heat sink.

How can i make my laptop work faster


Run disk defragmenter located on the system tools menu. You can also disable some startup items that run in the background therefore slowing your system.
To disable startup items:
  1. Use the System Configuration Utility to safely turn off programs that start-up through the Windows Registry. Access this utility by going to the Start -> Runrun.jpg
  2. Type msconfig and press Enter.
  3. Under the Startup tab there is a list of all the programs that start in the Windows Registry. By unchecking many of the programs you can speed up the launch time of Windows.
  4. You may uncheck everything but it is recommended to keep your antivirus checked to keep you protected always.config.jpg

PC with windows xp professional , on booting , shuts down immediately everesince I uninstalled Nero Dvd writing programme


Reboot your PC and immediately start tapping the F8 key, then choose to start in safe mode. Now click the start button, then click run. Type MSCONFIG and choose startup programs and disable all startup programs and see if it boots ok. If it does you can retype msconfig and one at a time re-enable your startup programs until you find the one that makes your PC hang and reboot, Keep that one turned off after you find it, and re-enable the rest of your startup items.
