Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)

Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.

That should get rid of the freeze.
If your unproperly disconnecting the ipod from your computer before the itunes
sofware disconnects it for you, then that could be your problem with the freeze ups.

Computer common problems easy fix.


The most common problem with computers is them freezing up.
When applications dont load or freeze up.
The easiest way to fix most problems is usually just the simple act of "rebooting" the computer.
Most of us already know that.
but just in case you dont heres how.
when the computer seems frozen and you seem to have waited longer for it to unfreeze than it takes for bread to toast.. you can try the following.
press and hold the crtl anf alt buttons and double tap the del button.
on older computers using windows 98- 2000 and millenium editions it will usually reboot the computer. also works with older versions.
with xp and vista you will usually fet a differernt screen that will allow you to choose various options.. choose restart.
another way is to click on the start button located on the bottom left of your screen and choose restart option. if the computer is so frozen that nothing works you can press and hold the power button unti lthe computer shuts down.. wait 30 seconds and turn the computer back on..if that doesnt work then you may have to turn of the power switch..but only if you have to..with laptops you will have to take out the battery. when the comp reboots the computer should be unfrozen..if not you will need more help ..just ask us..

Normal shutdown: Click on Start button (lower left corner on most PC screens), and then select shutdown.

I need to reboot my computer and when it starts up but i dont know how


How to reboot a PC.
  • Save work if it's in jeopardy. If your PC has frozen, attempt to save your data before rebooting your machine. Rebooting will almost certainly cause data loss. Attempt to save your data to your hard drive, diskette or portable media.
  • Step 2 Determine the steps your operating system has to go through to reboot. Some operating systems allow you to press Control, Alt and Delete to reboot the PC. Others require different commands. However, if the operating system and software are frozen, you may use the power button on the machine or the power strip.
  • Step 3 Use the power switch if necessary. If you cannot access the shutdown feature of the operating system and the relevant buttons still won't allow for a reboot, press and hold the power button on the PC. Allow the machine to rest for a few seconds, then power back on.
  • Step 4 Wait for the power-on self-test. Allow the PC to check its components thoroughly through the initial boot screens that will appear.
  • Step 5 Resume working. Log back into the machine and continue to work.

    There are two ways to do it.
    1) when the logon screen appears, enter your password (if no, just press enter), you will be back where when you leave.

    2) set the screen protection off by: clicking right mouse button on the desktop -> screen protection -->in screen protection box select none --- OK. Then, no logon screen will appear.

    Try it.

    Frozen screen


    Check to see if there is a tiny hole on the back of the ipod. That is where you can reset it. ALWAYS use your"safely remove hardware feature to avoid this type of problem. When you don't use that feature, and you disconnect the device from the computer, the drive is still running. By clicking on the "safely remove hardware", you stop the drive BEFORE you remove the device.

    NO SCREEN, FROZEN KEYS


    Take out all peripherals connected to computer including AC adapter.
    Take out battery.
    Press and hold power button for several seconds with all power sources removed. This drains residual power from the system and may correct many problems.
    Connect the AC adapter to wall, then computer. Press the power button to start the notebook PC.

    This worked for me! There is more info at http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&taskId=110&prodSeriesId=235992&prodTypeId=321957&prodSeriesId=235992&objectID=c00372748

    If the link doesn't help it is at HP website, Troubleshooting, I looked at Compaq Presario v3000 series, and went to boot-up problems...it was pretty far down the page under the heading Other Problems. There is more info if the first part (above) that you do does not work. Hope this is helpful to others!

    I want to know if it is possible topause a slide show and save an image toa folder


    Thanks for choosing fixya.com

    Most slide shows will have buttons on the bottom to pause and resume. Others you can click them to pause. If none of those are available you won't be able to pause the slide show.

    You can however get the images you want to save by using either the "Print Screen" button or a program like "camstudio" to record the screen into images.

    I'll cover the "Print screen" button here since its much easier.

    First off locate the "Print Screen" key on your keyboard, this is usually above the arrow keys and may only say "PRT SCR"

    Now press print screen, open up an application like mspaint, photoshop, or gimp (Any imaging program will do).
    Go to "Edit >> Paste" or press CTRL+V to paste the screen image.

    You can then use the imaging applications crop or cut features to cut out the image you want to keep.

    Hope this helps you out.
