    hi,

    I will try to help you on this.. Can you actually take down the "STOP error code"
    on the bluescreen it should starts with 0x0000
    This will actually tell us whats the source of the bluescreen error.

    Thanks,
    crisx

Hi

I'd suggest a solution for this..If u have the company PC then you must have RECOVERY CD, which came along with PC. Please insert the disc and restart the computer....Boot the computer with CD ROM it will read from Recovery CD..Once it get into that it will ask for admin password, just key in ENTER(Don't type any passwords)...Now it will take u to the command prompt window...Type the command BOOTCFG or CHKDSK /R and press enter...IT will check the disk and repair it..Then again it return to the command prompt, now type FIXBOOT and press enter..Your computer will restart and now u r offset..Please revert if any clarifications

Hello
Hold down the f8 key while starting or booting up.
Choose start up normally.Once started,Select disk cleanup from your program accessory system tools area.
Then choose disk defragment and let it run,this may take an hour or two to complete.If your using an anti virus program do a full computer scan.If not then get one AVG is free and works well for anti virus.

Last,yo may need to clean out any dust or dirt from the inside of the pc case with a vacum or a rag check the fans for proper operation.

I had problems with an extremely slow pc. I replaced mcafee with Norton 360. Norton found a few trojans,etc. All removed and i undertook a disk defragment. Then Windows xp home edition did not start in...


Both Norton and Mcafee are known for slowing pc's down.

Boot your PC as normal, but as its starting keep pressing the F8 key until some options appear on your screen. On of which will be "boot windows in safe mode".

Select that option and a windows shell should open.

Once open got to Start - Control Panel - Add/remove programmes and uninstal both mcafee and norton.

Once complete, reboot and see how you PC runs.

Assuming its working ok now, go back to your control panel - security centre - enable windows firewall.

Go online to "Filehippo.com" and download and istall the free version of AVG (anti virus software) once installed let it scan your system.

Then go back to Filehippo.com, download and install Ccleaner. This has loads of tools, :-
1) Cleaner clears all the tempory internet files of your pc.

2) Startup - you can reduce the number of programes you want th start up when booting.

You don't need any here because you can access all programmes via start but I'd leave AVG and any securtiy related to start and delete the rest. But its probably better to just disable the rest until you're happy with which programmes auto start.

Good Luck

My laptop cant use in noraml mode and it turns to white


resetart the laptop and choose "Debugging mode". This will show the list of files that loads during the initial boot up and OS starting. Reply with the last file listed before the BSOD.

If the BSOD occurs after the logging, list where it occurs (during the "Starting Windows XP window" or "after the desktop appears but no desktop icons".

Also, provide what OS is on the laptop.

Slow startup and unfunctioning Window XP Professional


If you are still able to get online I suggest using TrendMicro's Online Malware Scan called HouseCall.

www.trendmicro.com/housecall

I have had very good results with this.

If you find that you are having trouble getting online you can try two other options:

If you have a thumb-drive, or the ability to burn a cd:
Download a free version of the Anti-Virus of your choice:
http://avast.com/eng/download-avast-home.html

http://download.cnet.com/AVG-Anti-Virus-Free-Edition/3000-2239_4-10320142.html?part=dl-10044820&subj=dl&tag=button&cdlPid=11014801

Try either of these.
If that fails, Try installing/running housecall in Safe-Mode:

  • Shut your computer down, turn it on.
  • While your computer is booting up start hitting F8 repeatedly until you get a black screen with white text labeled "Windows Boot Options" or similar
  • Select Safe-Mode
  • Try the selected products
Let us know
Good Luck
