Mouse is spinning and froze


Restart your computer using Ctrl+Alt+Del and follow the keyboard command Alt+S to bring up the shut down menu (Windows Vista/7). press 'R' or directional key to restart, then press enter.

An unresponsive PC should have its power button held down so it can turn off forcibly, but this is a last resort. Good Luck!

When I restart the computer, the keyboard and mouse do not work. The mouse won't move the cursor and hit cntl alt del on keybourd and nothing happens. I have tries three mouses (one wireless) and two...


Use wired mouse and keyboard (not wireless) and change the USB port you are using to another one.

Connect them directly to the computer, do not use USB hubs.

If no joy reboot in safe mode: turn on your computer and immediately press F8 repeatedly until you get the Advanced Boot screen. Select "SAFE MODE" and press ENTER. After that, restart in normal mode.

Thank you

Was on a shoping site looking at an item, it froze and the pointer wont click on the x to close the page


Hi,

If you can still move the mouse press Ctrl+Alt and Del and start task manager. In the Applications tab click on the browser you are using and click on end task.


If the computer has completely froze then you will have to perform a forced shutdown. To do this press and hold the on/off button until it turns off.

If you need anymore help please post back.

Good luck.

Cant reboot - it started when the internet froze and i did ctrl atl delete and ended prosces for expoler, then computer froze so i used ctrl alt delete to restart computer, when computer restarted it...


Good day sir/maam, the reson why it froze is caused by a bad memory module, you may need to replace it. Open up your computer and locate the memory modules, remove all memory modules and bring it to a computer vendor for testing. or if you have the cash, better buy a new one. make sure that what you install on your PC be it tested or new is good.

Windows XP won't load - black screen


Refresh all the connection on your motherboard like ATX power supply, HDD and CD/DVD ROM cables, and specially the RAM. You may have to clean the RAM as shown in the image below. c4d62f6.jpg
then hopefully your computer will return to normal. Hope this helps.

Ctrl + Alt+Del


Hi

is it a usb keyboard or a ps2(round connector) keyboard? the problem is most likely that due to the computer not having started up properly the keyboard is not properly configured / installed by windows.

to get rid of this problem, you need the old type of keyboard, turn off the computer, and plug in a keyboard to the ps2 connector.

green one is for the mouse, the other is for the keyboard, plug in a keyboard, then turn the computer on, you should be able to press CTRL+ALT +DEL now and ones you sign in to the computer it should install the usb keyboard and it should work from now on, just make sure the keyboard is not disconnected or port changed when the power is off from the computer that cause the configuration loss.
