Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I reformatted my hard drive a month ago, due to my nephews viewing **** videos, which caused a message to constantly pop up that my computer was infected and I needed to download/and pay for a product. My computer hasn't worked correctly since. When shutting down, I do not have the option of choosing 'standby' mode. If I work on it for a long length of time, I am locked out, and I can't shut it down in the normal manner, and my programs cease to work. I am forced to hold the button down to shut down. Do you have any help for me? Or is this a Windows problem?

Easiest way is to do fresh install your windows.

To do this, please boot from your Windows CD installation, then reinstall. While reinstall, do format the installation partition.

2011 Holden Cruze CDX Petrol, Engine Power Is Reduced message has popped up and I would like to know whey it is happening or what it could be linked to.


Reduced engine power might be caused by a fault that needs investigating with diagnostic equipment but the condition might be linked to delayed routine maintenance and the resetting of the service interval computer when performance might be reduced to protect an unserviced engine.

A few days ago I had to restore my Playstation 3 system because it would not start up properly. Now I am having a problem downloading my game. I thought I had already downloaded the game to the PS3, but...


I would suggest that you take out your PS3 Hard Drive and reformat it as it seems it is having issues writing the updates to the hard disk. Also if you are using a wireless connection, it might be sending incomplete packets or no packets at all causing a corrupt update, so if possible plug your PS3 directly into the router.

I cant reformat my hard drive. (Windows XP)


Hi. There are several causes for this type of error. Either your Windows CD is corrupted, hardware is faulty (Motherboard, RAM, hard disk, video card, etc.). You may want to try to reformat your hard drive using another computer first just to isolate if your hard drive is faulty. If you can format it using another computer, try installing windows on that computer.

Hi!
You have 2 options. You can get an external case withy USB port to hook your hard drive up to your PC, start up DOS and reformat your hard drive. Or you could go get a new one with more space and just pop it in. It will give you the format message one more time, format it then you should be good to go.
