Question about Matrix 226R (VPR226R) PC Desktop

1 Answer

Vrp matrix 1620 hopeless?

Got it back from son, after about a year & now it's so screwed up I can't do anything with it!
Tried system restore, no dates, can't create one, tried turning it off, restarting then on again, still nothing.
Ran a number of cleaners thinking that was the problem, took two days for one to finish!
Try to go in safe mode, it asks for the disc, son has no idea about that.
If I click on any program, folder or on IE 7, it may take 15 minutes to come up. Tried to go to your site for instance and it redirects me to another page, a Mazda page?? It often redirects me to an "Info Search".
Is there any hope?
Thanks for any help, Peg

    Thanks for the info. Unfortunately, I don't have the cd's that came with it, he says he never had them, kids! Being disabled and not much income, I can't afford to take it in to be serviced.

    Guess there's nothing I can do at this point, was just hoping for an alternative solution.

    Thank you for your help. Happy New Year.

I would reinstall windows, Do you have the CD's that came with the computer? If not than take it to a computer shop and they well either change the hard drive or reinstall windows for you.

Cannot delete "System Volume Information" on extra drive

There is a free software title called ccleaner (a registry cleaner) that also gives you the option to delete system restore points. I would give that a shot.

System wont boot

As much as we would love to see you beat your system this is a common issue with systems laying around commonly its a card inside that pops off the motherboard. Just coming off the width of a human hair is enought to disable the entire system. It protects against accidental shorts due to mess ups techs can do when they build systems. Just pop the side off touch mental to kill any static in you and then remove all cards you see in the system i know this sounds confusing but i can walk thu it by phone much better. 3868487115

It keeps shutting down on us


If this just started it could be that it is overheating. Make sure that the tower itself is in open air so that it can circulate enough air. If its in a computer desk that may not have enough room I would temporarily move it out of there and see it that stops the problem.

Hope this helps. Please remember to rate this information.

I have an hp laptop which has a trojan virus and will no alow me to do anything. Do i have to pess alt F10 to start reboot as i do on my sons acer

hopefully you have an anti virus/spyware programme installed, if so keep pressing F8 on boot up to get you into safe mode, this will not allow the trojan to run.

When you get the list on screen choose safe mode, then when windows starts, choose the administrator account, go straight to my computer>properties>system restore tab, and turn off system restore.

Run your anti virus programme and then when the trojan is found and then reboot pc, then turn system restore back on.

Windows error

First, make sure there are no discs in any of the drives as this could disrupt the boot process. Prior to seeing the HP screen you should get a prompt as to press F10 to go into system setup. Once in system setup choose the option to go to system restore or system recovery. From there you should be able to restore your computer to a sytem restore point that was set up with a checkpoint at set intervals by Windows XP. If that is unsuccessful you may have to utilize your recovery discs.
Good Luck.
