Re: trying to backup and restore
If you have windows Xp;click on (CAPS)
START - HELP and SUPPORT - undo changes to your computer with SYSTEM RESTORE- RESTORE MY COMPUTER TO AN EARLIER TIME.
I recomend restoring it to the earliest date that it will restore from.

depends on what you mean by restore. Assuming you have windows installed, you can make a back-up by going to START > Control Panel > System and Security > Create a backup
(the path above may be a bit off from the wording, the PC I am on at the moment is not an english version.)
Then on the left side there is a link to create a recovery disk or create a backup. the recovery disk option only makes a bootable disk to start your computer if your windows cannot start. This only gives you an enviroment where you can try to fix windows or to restore a backup that you created beforehand with the second option above.
If you create a backup, there are two things to keep in mind... what type of data do you want to back up and how often. You can put check marks on all data that you want to backup (Note: the more data you backup the larger your backup file will be). If you plan on restoring a corrupt windows with the backup you should include "System State".
Restoring from a backup file a.k.a. backup image will ONLY give you back the files that were on your computer at the time you made the backup... that means everything that you created after you made the backup will be lost.
sounds like the power board on your tv is shot.... whats happening is a capacitor or other component is getting hot .... as a fail safe your tv shuts off...... may get lucky and be able to open the back of the tv and use a can of compressed air to blow out the inside and it may start working correctly..... dust acts as a heat adsorbing shield on components so it will build up heat really quickly and then the heat has no where to go
Often full system backups are restored from a bootable set of disks. There should be a message during startup to press something like F8 to change boot device. You could try using this to see if disk one of your backup is a boot disk & will allow you to restore your files.
If it had no problems a week ago, and the USB worked, then you can use System Restore to roll back to a week ago.
Depending on how long you've had this problem, System Restore may not have kept backups from that long ago.
If your computer is really in a bad way, backup all your important files (double, then triple check that you have everything) then use the recovery/installation disc that came with your PC to wipe and reload the entire system.
This gives you a fresh start and gets rid of a lot of junk. Failing that, you need much more detailed help to fix existing problems to get your box up and going properly. =-]
have you go intouch with the people who sold you the desktop pc if they could send you a recovery cd with everything on it if they won't then the best thing is to get a new copy of windows and download all drivers for unit and doit that way this is the only way I can think of or take in to a computer repair shop and tell them what you need and they will do this for you at a price.
hope you can get it sorted
