Do you still have access to your Windows? If yes Click Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore.... and restore your system to an earlier date, or in msconfig at General Tab, Select Normal Startup as shown in below Pic.You may even find system restore there as well.

If you really do not have anymore access to Windows, use your Installation CD, Boot from CD, and continue until it reaches to the stage where it asks to install Windows XP (I assume you have Windows XP) and select the option of repair existing Windows. Doing so will get you back your Windows as it was before the mess.....!

Is it Win XP?
Boot the PC and press F8 while the PC is coming up. Once you see a menu, select "Last Known configuration" This will put it back to normal.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Hi, My guess is your daughter messed it up. Go to menu and color and reset to default should fix it.
You may have to adjust color for your best viewing. Good luck.

Slow to boot (10-15 minutes)


A couple of different fixes you can try.

Go into Control Panel | Add/Remove Programs. Remove/Uninstall any unused or unknown programs.
Start | Run | Msconfig - On General tab, select "Selective Startup" and uncheck "Load startup items". Reboot computer. If computer boots faster (and daughter's profile works), then go back into Msconfig, select "Normal Startup", go to Startup tab, and start unchecking programs to slim down what loads when computer starts. Note: NONE of the programs in Startup tab are NEEDED for windows to run, but some of your applications may need them.

I'd also recommend getting a good Anti-Virus/Anti-Spyware package to make sure no viruses or trojan horses are on it.

Motorola razr v3 display went out


Either your flex cable is broken or came loose. Is the top left hinge button still intact? Is it loose at the hinge? You will need a Torx 4 screwdriver to take the LCD screen apart to check the flex cable inside.

Won't load games


You may need to update the driver for your video card. Also on the issue of speed, here is a tutorial on how to use MSCONFIG, a utility that comes with windows to manage your startup programs.

Reads Bad Track


If you changed the name of the song then thats the problem just simply change its name back to the original.

If thats not the problem then just delete the song or it will mess your sansa up and download it again for free with limewire

Sony kv27s15 just went dead, how to fix it?


We just experienced the same thing. My daughter was watching TV and it went dead. We could not get it to turn back on. I'm guessing that this model Sony TV had a 13 year life expectancy. I offered it to a local technician who refurbs and sells TVs, and he wasn't interested. He said he doesn't mess with anything over 10 years old because it's too hard to sell. We just went ahead and bought a new LCD HDTV. It's a shame though. If someone were able to fix the old TV, I'm sure a nursing home or non-profit facility could use it. Our only other option is to pay $15 to have it recycled.
