Start your computer and press F8 to get into safe mode. The go to the Device manager and find your sound card. Right click on it and disable it and then reboot to normal, see if that does the trick,

F9 key does not work to bring up the recovery partition


press f8 at boot and you will see a boot menu, arrow to 'repair my computer' and that should give you recovery options. you'll probably have to run startup repair first, but after that it will ask if you want additional troubleshooting options, click yes.

Hp pavilion slimline s3600t desktop pc - Wont boot up, flashes to blue screen after hp blue screen and restarts. no option for safe mode either


A Blue Screen is more time than not indicative of a driver issue or some hardware issue. First of all when it boots to the screen that shows Safe Mode and the other options, scroll down and see if there is an option to Stop or Disable Automatic Restart on Boot. This will stop the screen from restarting itself when the blue screen appears and give you a chance to read and see what the error is. Afterwards it is ok to run Startup Repair. Startup Repair does not delete any of your personal files. Let startup repair run and then see if it boots. Once again, startup repair does not delete any of your music, documents, pictures, videos or programs. System Restore does not delete any of you documents, music, pictures, videos or programs. System Recovery WILL DELETE all of your music, pictures, videos, documents & any programs you've added since you brought the computer home from the store. System Recovery sets your computer back to the very first time you turned it on after you purchased it. I would run the startup repair, if that does not fix your problem, see if you can run a System Restore. A lot of time the Restore Points are damaged or missing when this happens, but give it a try and restore to a point before you started having the blue screen issue. If all fails you're going to need a system disc so that you can get into the Recovery Console so that you can enter a dos command in the little black box that opens up with white letters. You want to type: chkdsk /r
Let it run. It will run well over an hour and you will notice the percentage of completion going from high to low, but that's ok. Let it run to completion then try rebooting. If this doesn't work, you're going to need to take it to a repair shop or reload the operating system yourself.

When i start my laptop it wont start windows, it just goes straight to a windows error recovery screen, it says windows failed to start. a recent hardware or software change might be the cause. it...


I recently had the same problem. I also thought it was a windows update that caused this: forced shutdown, startup repair, etc. The last time it did startup repair it could not repair it. Lucky for me my pc still had one month of warranty left. So after leaving it with the "pro's" for a week, I called to say what's up, figured it out yet? The techs told me that they had run every diagnostic test available and all the hardware had passed safely. So I asked what it could be and they said, more than likely, that Windows Vista software had somehow become corrupted- the only repair to fix this? a complete recovery. They offered to do a recovery for me for $130- lose all info except what's on recovery partition.
(No, thanks, I'll do it myself.) Went online, found how to start recovery (Alt + Fn + F11, for my Gateway DX4710), did it myself, works fine now, haven't had a problem since.

On a side note, if your RECOVERY software becomes corrupted, you will need recovery disks to fix this. I got lucky this time, but bought a set of those (JIC) for 20$.

I now do a backup at least once a month so it won't be a TOTAL loss should it ever happen again.

As a worst case scenario, if you need to figure out how to recover your computer, looks like HP owns Compaq. You could start here:

When I turn my computer on, I get a runtime error.


Clean Boot with Only MoSearch loadTOCNode(2, 'resolution'); The Mosearch.exe (Microsoft Office Search Service) and Mosdmn.exe (Microsoft Office 10 Search Filter Daemon) Startup items may be conflicting with some other program (or programs) running in the background. Therefore, clean boot your computer with only MoSearch selected on the Startup menu to determine whether this program is the source of the conflict. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Click Start, and then click Run.
  2. In the Open box, type msconfig.exe, and then click OK.
  3. On the General tab, click Selective startup.
  4. On the Startup tab, click to clear all check boxes except for MoSearch.

    NOTE: In Microsoft Windows Millennium Edition (Me), leave the *StateMgr check box selected as well.
  5. Click OK, and then click Yes when you are prompted to restart the computer.
  6. If the error message can be reproduced, repeat the preceding steps. In step 3, also click to clear the Process System.ini file and Process Win.ini file check boxes.
If the error message cannot be reproduced, this indicates that MoSearch is conflicting with some other program or programs running in the background. Follow these steps to locate the conflicting program:
  1. Click Start, and then click Run.
  2. In the Open box, type msconfig.exe, and then click OK.
  3. On the Startup tab, click to select one of the check boxes.
  4. Click OK, and then click Yes when you are prompted to restart the computer.
  5. If the preceding steps reproduce the error message, the last item added to the Startup menu is causing the conflict. If the error message is not reproduced, repeat these steps until all Startup menu check boxes are selected.
  6. If all the Startup menu check boxes are selected and the error message is still not reproduced, start Msconfig again, and then click to select the Process System.ini file and Process Win.ini file check boxes.
If this doesn't fix it, let me know and I'll post another, more advanced repair.

Good luck, and please let me know how you do.

Mp3 player wont play music, says file not formated


The file not formatted message is not an error that a repair will fix.
The songs that you have loaded onto the player are in a format that the player does not support. Do yourself a favor, and only download files that rae in mp3 format - they will never give you problems, error messages, require long explanations, etc.

Scan disk sansa c200 series locked with an error message


Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.

Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/DriverDownloads.aspx
