Tapping F8 key during bootup, to go in Safe Mode. Login as administrator.
After getting upto desktop, run the Checkdisk command and run a complete system scan with your Antivirus. Let me know the status after this, I will further investigate and fix the problem.

With only 3% of memory remaining my husband decided to perform a disk check but was doing something on the computer so clicked schedule for next start up (or something) so when I next turned the computer...


Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your MOTHERBOARD TO YOUR HARD DRIVE make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

even something as small as a faulty electrical extension or fan lead can cause you problems

computers need all of the data and electrical current to travel through every working device and to have an end to be able work properly


motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a FLAT RIBBON 40 pin type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail


check all electrical power input and extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd floppy drives need to have current go through make sure these drives are working


also check the Cmos battery and computer RAM modules make sure they are securely seated with no dust built up or in the sockets on some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in

check you CPU make sure its securely seated and has thermal grease

if you need more help with this post a reply

hope this helps

I tried installing Age Of Empires 3 on my macbook pro OSX. When the installation was almost done it came up with an Error Code 36 and then quit the installation.


Hello,

Make sure you don't have the hardware hooked up or have any programs or windows open, until you know that the software has installed correctly!

Insert your disk, Restart your computer! If upon restarting your computer does not detect the new software, than...

Go to Start, Control Panel, Install New Software! Restart again!

You may need to update your driver? If so...first I would create a back up on a disk or flash drive (cruzer) just to be safe!

To update the driver, you will need the software disk inserted, so you know which disk drive you need to update,.. Go to Start, Computer, Right click on the drive that shows the disk, select properties, select up-date driver.

Also,. FYI...Some Software programs require you to disable your virus protection, firewall, defender, to be able to install, whether or not, but especially if they are password proptected!

Try disabling your virus protection and select untill you restart, Go to Start, Control Panel, Firewall, or type in the search box...disable virus protection.

Try this and let me know if you need further assistance?

Kind regards!

GO INTO START, CLICK ON COMPUTER AND UPDATE YOUR COMPUTER. YOU MAY HAVE TO TURN YOU ANTI-VIRUS, DEFENDER ETC, BACK ON WHICH YOU CAN ALSO DO IN YOUR COMPUTER.

WHEN INSTALLING NEW SOFTWARE, ANTIVIRUS IS USUALLY DISABLED, JUST ENABLE IT...TYPE IN ENABLE ANTI-VIRUS, IT WILL COME UP AND CHOOSE YOUR OPTIONS, YOU'LL HAVE TO DO THIS FOR YOUR FIRE WALL AND DEFENDER IF YOU HAVE THOSE ENABLE ALL OF THEM.

WHEN DONE RESTART, MAKE SURE YOUR PRINTER IS HOOKED UP TO COMPUTER, SO IT CAN BE DETECTED AND INSTALLED WHEN STARTING THE COMPUTER.

IF YOUR COMPUTER DOESN'T DETECT YOUR PRINTER, THAN GO INTO YOUR COMPUTER, CLICK ON ADD PRINTER, EITHER AUTOMATIALLY DETECT, OR ENTER THE INFO OF TYPE OF PRINTER AND WHETHER YOU HAVE THE DISK, INSERT DISK, IF YOU DON'T HAVE DISK, THEN CLICK ALL PRINTER INFO, WHAT BRAND & MODEL CLICK NEXT.

YOU WILL HAVE TO RESTART AGAIN, AFTER INSTALLING YOUR PRINTER, IF THAT IS NECCESSARY! SHOULD BE OK AFTER YOU ENABLE YOUR VIRUS PROTECTION.

HOPE THIS HELP!

How to restore my acer aspire 5515 to default mode like i bought it


Reformatting your computer, save everything. You will loose all of your DATA.

I found this on the web. You can click on the link to see it more in view.
http://www.ehow.com/how_5039946_reformat-windows-vista-computer.html
Step 1 ATTENTION!

Reformatting a computer will reset it to the factor image, all data must be backed up or it WILL be lost. There are several reasons to reformat a hard drive. A few reasons include but are not limited to: driver issues, virus, cleaning up, getting rid of the computer, etc.

Step 2 Recovery Disk Creator
Every new windows vista owner should know that the new computers are not supplied with recovery disks anymore. The manufacturer allows the user to create one set of disks upon the purchase of a new machine. It is important to create the disks early as driver issues and viruses may arise. In order to create recovery disks on windows vista you want to click on the start menu. Next, type in recovery in the Start Search option area. Next, click on recovery disk creation and follow the process. It will require that you have about 3 dvds or about 7 cds to create the recovery disks.
REFORMATING HARD DRIVE!

Once the recovery disks have been made reformatting windows vista is quite simple. Insert the recovery disks into the cd/dvd tray on the machine. You are now going to want to turn the computer off. When the computer has turned off, go ahead and turn it back on. A screen should pop up asking you whether you want to boot from Hard Drive or Disk. Choose the disk option. After you make it this far it is a downhill process. Next you follow the on-screen instruction make sure you reformat the machine, not recover it.

Good Luck :0)

Windows did not start successfully start uo loop


this happens sometimes due to a virus that gets on the machine. you will need to remove the virus and then start up the computer.

To remove the virus you will need to plug the hard drive into another computer then run a virus scan on that drive.

Or you can reformat the hard drive and put windows back on it. this solution you will lose everything

I scan my files using spyware doctor but still fu virus is still there.


Greetings,
We need to understand first that there are differences between all malicious softwares. Spywares, viruses, malwares, trojan horses are to name a few. the soyware doctor can fix spyware issues but cannot control the action of a virus. try installing a good anti virus software viz. mcafee and scan the hard disk. Mostly the issue gets fix elase if the registry changes have happened then you wil be required to format the hard disk. Hope I helped you.

My computer has infected by virus and we want to scan it but it does not happen we want to load new anti virus it also not happened what i do for that problems


restart your computer and press F8. That takes you into safe mode, from there choose 'safe mode with networking'. Than update your antivirus and do a a full scan. When scanning in safe mode it catches more viruses before the have a chance to boot up because windows only loads the basics to run.

Hi,
Try Scanning your Computer For Computer Viruses.
then re-install Windows XP.
Your files will remain intact, if you select to leave the hard-drive As it is ( rather Than Format it ) or setup on a different Partition.
Backup your Valuable Docs/Files First.
Windows re-installation will replace any Missing-deleted Corrupt Files.
hope This Helps you.
