If you can manage to bring up msconfig from the Start, Run command I would stop all unimportant start up tasks for the time being. I prefer malwarebytes and ccleaner for maintenance on my systems. If interested here's the links :)

I agree with acdr, do a complete virus scan before you go ahead with the full system recovery

There are probably some corrupt files on the harddrive or there is damage on the hard drive. I would suggest to try using the windows setup cd or sony recovery cd to restore the system back to normal, if the problem is not solved by that then you most likely have a hardware problem which is most likely in the harddrive, might have to replace it, they don't cost much.

Sony Vaoi built cam doest work on messenger


i have a gateway fx gameing laptop!! i was having probs with the cam going dark on me after a bit while using yahoo messenger..it was also freezing up but that i found out was cause yahoo SUCKS **** LOL...
i downloaded msn messenger, not msn live, and the cam works fine.. so it is yahoo.. i do know that sometimes my cam will sometimes go darker in resolution if i bend the top down a bit.. its doing that because the cam is thinking that im turning it off by shutting the laptop!
does the web cam work with the software it came with? can u turn it on and see urself when NOT using a messenger? if so then it might just not want to work with those 2 messengers which is weird!!!!!
MAKE SURE THAT U DO NOT HAVE THE PROGRAM SOFTWARE on that came with the laptop at the same time as trying to use it with the messengers!! see if that works and ill check back with you!

laptops did not come with the high end state of the art web cams! they were made for ease not for exceptional quality!

Windows XP Freezing


Hi, Thank you for your reply. I answer to your questions:

1. No, I have not recently installed new RAM
2. I have just made my laptop freeze so I could check the event viewer to see if anything came up - butno error is reported in the system, application or security logs. (PS: to cause the freeze I opened up My Pictures, right clicked on and image, clicked open. The image opened in picture viewer. I closed picture view without any problems but once I closed the My Pics folder the computer froze.)

Thanks

Laptop problems


hi

possibly ur system has a virus or a spyware.
visit www.donloads.com
go for "AVG" it usually comes for free.
also go for some anti ad ware and spyware(can be found on this site also)

run a whole system scan

if there is no virus found then i am afraid u hav to reinstall ur OS.
in any case do let me know.

Iphone Freeze


My iphone froze up today, it just gave me a half lit screen and I couldn't even turn it off, nothing would work.  I held the home button and power off button at the same time for several seconds and this seemed to make it worse.  I did the same thing again, and it restarted the phone.  Nothing lost except for 3/4 of the battery life for some strange reason.  All is good, my phone is back!
