    before all of that happened i  tried to use system restore to a restore point 3 or four months before.. then i cant fully remember but an error telling that system restore wasnt succesful and there are some problems so i thought i want to restore it back to my current  system and thats when my computer started to act weird...

    one more thing.. i dont know, am not sure if these have something to do with the problem but i think, am not sure if its a virus or malware...i suddenly got a pop up that i have 3 viruses and a certain antivirus  i didnt install in the first place is to scan itand everything were just in a dillema..also one of the reason why i tried system restore

    With all that's wrong, I suggest you do a full system recovery.

Go to http://housecall.trendmicro.com/ and run a scan of your computer.

If after that you are still getting "weird" stuff, back up your important files and run your recovery program. (Not restore.) I have found that restore seldom works with a lot of malware.

My mercury PI945GCM motherboard gets stuck on the mercury logo itself. I cant enter BIOS also. Plz help


Try running the check disk utility.

To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc ora operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot fromit. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with whiteletters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice thepercentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run tocompletion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows.Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents,music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair whenthe options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recoveryconsole and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.

I have problem to open my system restor 2 also Ihave problm to open and get back to my own users accounts the widows only open to my limited account


That's a big problem you got there

What version of windows are you using? if you're using windows xp, after booting the windows screen don't click any accounts just hold ctrl alt delete button. And after that you'll prompt to put a username and password. In the username type administrator and no password and click enter

once you enter, go to the control panel and change your settings on your user accounts.

About your system restore. I think it's disabled by a user that's why it doesn't function. Right click the My computer and go to properties ang go to the system restore tab and enable the system restore for your partition e.g. local c: or others

Hi i have tryed to flash bios on acer aspire L3600 and it crashed. how can i fix this? thanks alot


Hi,

This issue may occur if the Boot.ini file is missing, damaged, or contains incorrect entries.

To resolve this issue, start the computer from the Windows XP CD , start the Recovery Console, and then use the Bootcfg.exe tool to rebuild the Boot.ini file. To do this, follow these steps:

1. Configure the computer to start from the CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive. For information about how to do this, see your computer documentation, or contact your computer manufacturer.
2. Insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into your CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive, and then restart your computer.
3. When you receive the "Press any key to boot from CD" message, press a key to start your computer from the Windows XP CD-ROM.
4. When you receive the "Welcome to Setup" message, press R to start the Recovery Console.
5. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you have to use from the Recovery Console.
6. When you are prompted, type the administrator password, and then press ENTER.
7. At the command prompt, type bootcfg /list, and then press ENTER. The entries in your current Boot.ini file appear on the screen.
8. At the command prompt, type bootcfg /rebuild, and then press ENTER. This command scans the hard disks of the computer for Windows XP, Microsoft Windows 2000, or Microsoft Windows NT installations, and then displays the results. Follow the instructions that appear on the screen to add the Windows installations to the Boot.ini file. For example, follow these steps to add a Windows XP installation to the Boot.ini file:
1. When you receive a message that is similar to the following message, press Y:
Total Identified Windows Installs: 1

[1] C:\Windows
Add installation to boot list? (Yes/No/All)
2. You receive a message that is similar to the following message:
Enter Load Identifier
This is the name of the operating system. When you receive this message, type the name of your operating system, and then press ENTER. This is either Microsoft Windows XP Professional or Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition.
3. You receive a message that is similar to the following:
Enter OS Load options
When you receive this message, type /fastdetect, and then press ENTER.

Note The instructions that appear on your screen may be different, depending on the configuration of your computer.
9. Type exit, and then press ENTER to quit Recovery Console. Your computer restarts, and the updated boot list appears when you receive the "Please select the operating system to start" message. Let me know, if need further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

HP Desktop PC, won't boot even under safe mode


if the system was able to enter the desktop and restarts...once possible cause is a virus...scan the pc via safemode or reinstall windows.

Booting up


Hi,
the system is looking for a certain file or a command prompt.
1:) try re-installing your operating system, this will overwrite any corrupt or deleted files. ** backup important data first**
Although you should get the option to:- leave existing file system intact.
2:) if this is a recent problem, you could restore the computer ( windows XP ) to an earlier date. before the problem occured.
3:) enter the bios to ensure the computer is booting from HDD first.
Hope this helps.

Boot up problem


Although this is almost always a hardware problem, pinpointing which hardware is the culprit can be a tedious task so before making any hardware changes, assume first that this may be is a software problem. Assuming that you have Windows XP installed as your OS. You can try fixing your system with System Restore. To do this, turn on your PC and press F8 during the boot-up process. Select Safe Mode and login with an Administrator Account. A pop-up window will then prompt you to enter Windows in Safe Mode or just Restore your system by using System Restore, choosing NO will automatically open up the SYSTEM RESTORE window. Choose a restore point (a point or a date where your PC worked well before having problems). Your PC will reboot with the configuration set on your selected restore point. If this doesn;t solve the problem. You can try fixing your system using your Windows XP installation CD. Just don't forget to set your CD as the first boot device.
