Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC
Hello, My e-machine comp, about 5 years of age freezes everytime I turn it on, like it gets to my wallpaper and all my programs and freezes after 4 seconds. I have to manually turn it off and on, off and on, like 10 times in a row I am repeating this off and on thing and still no resuslts. On top of that I just reformatted my hold Hard Drive about 2 weeks ago.
Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanx
Even if you re-formatt, unless you do an F-Disk first, if there is a virus in the drive, it is posssible that it is still there, especially if you re installed some of the stuff that was on the old Operating system. There is also a possibility that you could have a virus in the memory. See if you can boot into safe mode and run AVG pro. I just ran in to this similar problem on a clients laptop, brand new. There is a new virus called the Ispy, or variables of it that are in the actual virus program. Also try Lavasoft adware remover pro, if you are able to boot in Safe mode. By the way its either F7 or F8 that you need to tap "not hold down" while booting up. Try that and get back to me if it worked. It drove me nuts for a day until I realised what had happened, I have access to many virus programs, I had Avast pro in there and it wouldn't make a dent in removing it. It also could be your Video card drivers, so check that you have the latest ones first. If you know how to clear the cmos, then do that also. Sometimes your startup files get corrupted and need to be cleared. You do that by moving the jumper on the board, which should be next to the mB battery, good luck.
