Can you start it in Safe Mode? Press F8 while the computer is booting. click on Safe Mode with Networking when the menu comes up.
When you get into Safe Mode, run you anti-virus. And clean your Cookies, Temp files and Internet Temporary Files. And while in Safe Mode, run a defrag of the C: drive. Restart the computer and it should start up correctly.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

I could not get my sylvania netbook to connect to my wifi so i download the update from their website to a SD card then opened on the netbook and it deleted everything on the netbook. how can i restore it...


I do not know why your icons disappeared by running the Download, but your programs are still in the on board ROM memory and what you are missing are your desk top icons. I have tried to duplicate your download problem but so far have not been able. I know that using a SD card will not download a usuable file so I used a thumb drive.

Any way please read the following solution that I wrote to another poster.

If you have deleted the icons for those programs on your desk top, then they may be in your Recycle trash bin. double click on Recycle Bin look for the icon for recorder, right click on recorder and select restore. You really cannot delete the programs from your machine as they are retained in a ROM chip , hard coded into the chip and are loaded each time you cut your machine on. The only thing you can do is delete the icons on the desktop, which are sent to the recycle bin.
To retore the machine to factory settings, there is a small hole just about an inch down from the data plate on the back. Using a pencil point or a straightened paper clip, insert the bject into the hole and hold for about 5 seconds. Your deleted icons are not replaced.
A second method to restore your icon is to click on my computer right click on the recorder, select copy, dismiss my computer, find a blank spot on your desktop and right click on that spot, select paste, and a dos type icon appears as your recorder button. When you cut the machine of and back on the Dos type icon is replaced with a CE type icon
To restore all icons:
You can: If you can click on start, click on run, type desk top into the open space and ok it. your icons should be shown. you will have to copy and paste each one back to your desk top, or select edit and then select select all, then click on file, select send to, and select desk top as short cut.

Once I have logged on and I am working on one of the various programs the start menu disappears. The only way that I can get the start menu back is to restart the computer and then it disappears again....


This is not a problem with your T40.

This is a configurable options in Windows.

You can program the start menu to disappear and reappear when you bring the mouse in close proximity to the area where your start menu has been configured to appear, either on the bottom, left, right, or top of the desktop and which feature can be reconfigured by left clicking on the initial appearance or a subsequent appearance of the start menu and indicating your preference.

Icons and Start tool bar disappearing every few seconds


Sounds like the explorer.exe process might be restarting. Open Task manager and keep refreshing the processes to see if explorer.exe disappears/re-appears.
