User mode window (for adjusting the contrast, brightness etc) appears again again automatically.


First off... I would Re-Start your computer...OR...Shut down manually... to see if this fixes your problem. It's possible your computer didn't accept the changed setting? But...what you are experiencing is a Corrupt File, which will need to be removed!

Not sure exactly what you did? Where you trying to adjust the contrast, brightness, etc,.?

If you went through your Desktop to adjust these settings, always make sure you select APPLY and OK..

If you went through your System to Change your Resloution, you may have a Conflict with your chipset or even Malfunctioned it?

If re-starting your computer didn't fix your problem, than shut your computer down again!

Upon,..Re-booting...This time hold the Control Key down, so you can get into SAFE MODE!

I would then do a SYSTEM RESTORE under (SAFE MODE) and Restore your computer back to an earlier period that your computer was working correctly! Even, if you cleared the problem on the first step provided! Just type in the search box in your Control Panel System Restore! Or you can type in at the START Button...System Restore!

Also, while in SAFE Mode...go to your Device Drivers in your Device Manager and check for any setting that have a yellow symbol next to them...Click on each one and Update the Drivers!

Always, make sure...you Re-Start your computer after doing any changes...!

If you need further assistance, please don't hesistate to reply back to me! I'll be happy to help you!

Kind Regards!

When trying to start my computer emachinesE627, i have a black screen that says error loading operating system


The computer can not see the Operating System. This can be caused by several things, so I will just list a few possiblities for you here:

If you have a USB flash drive or external HD plugged into the PC. Remove it while the computer boots. Some machines are set to boot from a flash drive and will search for an operating system on it and display NO OS if the bios can not find one.

If the Hard drive has been removed or replaced recently then the Jumper settings may not be correct on the new drive.

If the computer was having trouble booting periodically, freezing or experiencing blue screens before this message, then you may have HD corruption or possible disk failure. With HD corruption you only need to run chkdisk /p within recovery console in XP or run the Vista recovery center with vista. HD failure is a dead disk, no option but to replace.

Bad RAM or a dead CMOS battery can also cause this type of failure. So check these also.

This can also be caused by a damaged master boot record or primary boot partition. Run fixboot or fixmbr from the recovery console on XP or just run the Vista Boot Repair Console in Vista

Worm Viruses and Rootkits that damage the primary boot sector or the Master Boot Record can also cause the OS to mysteriously disappear. So if none of the above sound like they are for you, then you can try looking for one of these on the affected drive.


Hope this helps,
Gill

Recently bought an e-machine monitor as well as a new e-mcahine hard drive. we cannot figure out how to se the screen so that we can see the icons on the screen as well as the start button. HELP


Hi
Ok, I have to make assumptions here. Your old monitor and old hard drive went out at the same time? If this is the case then the problem is that the new hard drive has nothing on it. The manufacturer should have given you or sold you a set of recovery CD's. You'll need these to replace the NTFS partition and the operating system. Good luck

I RUN A ANTIWARE PROGRAM ON MY COMPAQ NOW IT WONT RESTART IT STALLS AT AWAITING START


Windows Start-up Errors
Step one, you need a Windows XP CD. If you only have a recovery disk set like the ones from HP or Compaq they will not do what you need done. Under normal circumstances however, you can use a Dell disk because the Operating system is on a stand-alone disk. All retail versions are also acceptable as well as upgrade disks. For a rule of thumb, if the disk has the Microsoft hologram it should work. You can order a boot up floppy disk from here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/310994 with this file, if you know how, you can use “ImageBurn” to burn the file into an ISO file which can be burned to a disk. Now make sure your computer boots to the cd rom first. If you know how to do this skip on down, if you don’t, while the computer is first starting up and you see the manufacturers splash screen, tap F12 (some computers it’s F9, others it may be another key, you may have to watch and see if the computer lists the key strokes for getting to the boot menu. If you still cannot find it, boot into the BIOS settings and change your boot order there. Save your settings and exit, the computer will now seek the cd rom as its boot source first.
Place your Windows disk in the computer and start it up. When you see the test at the top of the page “Press Any Key To Boot From CD” Just hit the space bar to activate. The next screen you will see will most likely be a Windows setup screen, when you see this press the “R” key to get to the recovery console. It will get there, it may take a little time, patience. Once it loads you will be given a choice of Windows installations, there should only be one, if there are more, always pick number one. It may ask for an administrators password, if you have not set this particular password, then just leave it blank and press enter. The next prompt you see is:
C:\Windows>
You need to type the following:
cd \
hit enter. Pay close attention to the spacing between the characters. There is a space between the character “d” and the “\”
You are now at the ROOT of the drive, this is where basic commands can be given and changed. You should now see the following:
C:\>
Now type the following:
CHKDSK /R
Hit the enter key.
The chkdsk /r command also includes the P command and will also look for lost recoverable information in bad sectors.
There are occasions depending on how corrupt the system is, that this process could take several hours, so be patient with it.
Now, after chkdsk has run type the following:
FIXBOOT
Hit the enter key.
It may prompt you with a warning, that’s ok, just continue. When fixboot has finished, type: EXIT hit enter and windows will reboot. When the system reboots, tap the F8 key during this time and you will see the multi-boot menu come up. Scroll to the title “Last Know Good Configuration” and hit the enter key. If you were having some simple drive errors this should have fixed them.

Windows XP Missing configuration?


Sounds like you may have bad RAM. Try removing all of the RAM modules on your motherboard and put only one in the first slot. Start the computer and see if it works.

Recent Hardware Changes. Corrupt drivers for any recently installed hardware can crash the system. To get rid of the corrupted drivers, do the following:

a. Uninstall all recently added hardware.
b. Try to restore the system to a previous restore point
c. Reboot the system and return to a previous stable configuration if possible
d. Remove all external peripherals (printer, cameras, scanners, etc) and connections until the computer returns to normal. 5. Bad video/graphics card. At this point, if your computer is still under warranty, its time to call for help. If not, you can get a computer geek to come to your house (it is cheaper to take your computer to their store) or try to fix the problem yourself.

a. Is AGP/PCI video card compatible with your operating system? If you are experienced with opening up the chassis and resetting cards, reseat the video card, and try again.
b. Check the pins on the cable connectors and see that they are not bent or broken.
c. Never attempt to open the monitor. Turn on the monitor and try to reboot the computer again. If this doesn’t work, go to Step 6.

6. BIOS – the Binary Operating System may be corrupted – Use of Safe Mode to boot system.

a. Try starting the computer in the safe mode. Restart the computer and see the point to which it boots up before you get the blank screen.
b. Press F8 as the computer starts to boot. (For HP and Compaq computers with VISTA, use F10, For HP Pavilions with XP or earlier version of OS, use F1). Use the arrow keys to select the safe mode and press Enter. Remember that NUM LOCK should be OFF for the arrow keys to function.
c. If Windows launches before you can choose the safe mode, restart computer and go to step a.
d. You can choose “Safe mode with command prompt” option if you know how to use MS-DOS
e. You can choose “Last known good configuration” to go back to the last known safe shutdown state.
f. If you have added any drivers or corrupted any files the last time you used the computer, the safe mode will help you get back to the state before the changes, when the computer was running smoothly.

7. BIOS – the booting software may be corrupted – Use of Recovery Console to boot system

a. If the recovery console is already installed on the system, one of the options you see while the system is initially booting up will be “Microsoft Windows Recovery Console”. If it’s not already on the system, it can also be accessed through the network during “command prompt with network” option in safe mode.
b. Recovery console can also be installed at the time of need from the CD-ROM. Go to the following link for additional info : http://support.microsoft.com/kb/301645
c. Recovery console helps to Enable or disable services. If Windows informs us during boot up that a file is corrupted or missing, then we can use the Recovery console to copy files from a CD to the computer to repair the corrupted or missing information.
d. You can also recover the system by reconfiguring a service that may be preventing your computer from starting correctly. (FIXMBR, FIXBOOT, etc)
e. For a list of Recovery Console commands, search : http://www.microsoft.com/

Assuming you've already checked your driver and system settings, tried a different monitor, and checked the cable and connector pins, this would almost certainly be a problem with the power or signal circuit board inside the monitor.
