Hi suddenly my sound is not working in my newly bought laptop model is compaq presario cq 40 newly bought


Try this:

Shut down the laptop, disconnect anything plugged into it, remove the battery and hold down the power switch for 15 seconds (with no power or anything attached to laptop).

Reconnect A/C power and power it back up. See if that works for you.

If not, when you get booted into Window, go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools and click on System Restore.

Follow the prompts and choose a bold date back to a time prior to when you lost sound. When it reboots, you will probably have sound.

Let me know if you need further help.

My laptop won't shut down properly!


Is it possible that you have changed the settings of what buttons do what on your system? E.g. you could have changed the power button to "switch user" instead of "shut down", to check this (in XP) go to "Power Options" (in Control Panel" and then click on the "Advanced tab" at the top, then select "Shut down" from the drop down menu at the bottom of the window.

If this is already set to shut down then maybe you could do a system restore in case another setting has been changed, restore it to before the PC started doing this.

Alternatively try actually choosing "Turn off Computer" from the Log On screen (press Ctrl + L to get to this screen, or choose switch user/log off). If you are using Vista I beleive that there is a shut-down option from the Log In Page there (which again you can access by pressing Ctrl + L on the keyboard.

Hope this helps!

Bring your Laptop up in SAFE mode by using the <F8> key at start up

The go to system Restore and do a system restore pick the last date you laptop was OK and presto (if you are lucky) you will be good again.

1.
Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click System Restore.
2.
On the Welcome screen, click Restore my computer to an earlier time, and then click Next.
3.
On the Select a Restore Point page, select the date from the calendar that shows the point you'd like to restore to, as shown in Figure 2, and then click Next.

5.
Click Next if you are ready to proceed or click Back to change the restore point.
6.
The computer will shut down automatically and reboot. On reboot, you'll see the Restoration Complete page, and then click OK.

Dell laptop wont power up looks like its starting ok then shuts down. Power is on at transformer (green light)


It looks that the laptop has a main problem.
Try this:
1. turn on the laptop
2. press immediately the F8 key.
3. If you press o.k. the F8 key, it should open a menu.
4. go to open laptop in error mode, or something like this.
5. press intro and wait until the laptop continues loading.
6. When loading is finish, go to start, programs, accessories, system tools, restore system
7. restore the system to a previous stay.

I have an acer aspire laptop, when i start it up its says configuring updates stage 3 of 3 0% complete then it will shut down come back on say the same again and shut down again. it will keep on doing this


Maybe you could try the last known good configuration. When the laptop is starting up, wait until the acer screen disappears and then tap F8 on the keyboard before the windows screen comes up. You should get a black screen with some options that say safe mode. The fourth or so option on the list will be "Last Known Good Configuration". The computer should try and load windows. Hopefully that will restore the machine before the update. 

If it works it would be a good idea to go to http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/ and fully update your laptop. This will download the update manually instead of doing it with automatic updates.
