Question about Gateway PC Desktops

1 Answer

I am having trouble with explorer. When I boot-up I go to explorer and then to google for my web serches. At times the system fails to go to explorer but goes directly to google. I have high speed internet and I have contacted the provider and they walked me through a troubleshoot and found nothing wrong with my internet connections. When I go to a paticular website the system locks up and I have to reboot and start over.

Seems like a background program is doing that in your computer.
Be sure that your computer is not virus or spyware infected.

I have a notino uL100 with a built in web cam. i dont know how to use the web cam. I cannot find any web cam options.


Did you buy the computer new and if you did the instructions are helpful. I know many people don't like to read if no instructions then the check with teck solutions. most times the drive wasent installed thats why you dont see an option. also check the serch option when you serch type web cam and see if any thing comes out that will help you. If it does then right click on it and send a short cut to the desk top

Blank screen, can only start programms by task manager


Try to boot Vista into Safe Mode. Tap the F8 Key right after you turn on the computer until you get the Advanced Boot Up Menu
and use the keyboard arrow keys to select Safe Mode. The next screen may ask you to select your operating systm. Select Vista, not the Recovery Console.

Does your task bar and icons appear in safe mode? If so, it might be one of your start up programs that is failing and causing explorer.exe to fail during normal boot-up into Windows and not allowing your taskbar and icons to appear. Click Start and type in msconfig and hit enter then click the Start Up tab and look at all the programs that start up when Vista is starting up. Do Not uncheck anything in the list that you do not recognize as you may uncheck drivers or Vista starting programs that you computer needs to start up Vista properly. Google anything you don't recognize and uncheck any Start Up programs you do not need to start when Vista boots up, like Quicktime player or Adobe Reader for example. (This would also help your boot up time into Vista)

Sounds like explorer.exe crashed. Try opening up the Task Manager again, and Click File > New Task and type in explorer.exe. See if the task bar and your desktop icons appear.

If they appear for a brief moment then disappear again, the Windows explorer.exe is corrupted. Explorer.exe will try to start and then fail again. You may need to use System Restore to bring your computer back to a date and time when the computer was working properly, before the Vista update.

Maybe your CMOS battery is low on power. Have it replaced with a new/good one.
Hope it works for you.
