    thanks alot Gymowner but it keeps sending the error report: This application has failed to start because SHDOCVW.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem. The bad thing is that i don't know much about computers just basics

Undo the last restore, or go into safe mode and you can log in under another user account, or delete the existing one, see if it boots into windows with a new administrator account. You can always clear the cmos and pop out the battery, that should clear any settings stuck in there

    Ok first let's get into safe mode, by restarting, and tapping on the f8 key till it goes into safe mode. Safe mode is just a mode that uses the least possible resources that the computer needs to run, so a lot of stuff won't work, Lets just see if you can get in first, i'll check back in a while, if you get in see if you can undo the last restore.

Windows XP crash while shutdown


Switch ON the PC, boot the PC in 'Safe Mode' by continuously tapping F8 button after you switch On until you get the Safe Mode Option.

Let windows boot in Safe Mode and log in to windows.

Go to 'Start'--->Programs--->Accessories--->System Tools--->Click 'System Restore'


A 'System Restore' window will appear.

Here you will have to check "Restore computer to an earlier time' and click Next


Now you will find one Month Calendar window with Dates below, go to the previous month by clicking the '<' sign in the upper left hand corner of the Month Calendar and select any date that you see in Bold.


Note: It is better if you could remember from which date you are facing the issue, try to select a date prior to that date.


The detail of that particular date should show "System Checkpoint" and time on the right hand side box. Select that date.


Now, Click on Next and System Restore will start and windows will take a reboot.

After reboot your problem should be resolved.

Dell Latitude D610. It is coming up with the Erro Mentioned in t


Hi,
Have you tried System Restore? If not familiar... Start Button ---> Help ---> System Restore ---> "Restore my computer to an earlier date" --> choose an appropriate date, maybe a few days earlier than the problem.

Re-boot and see if works! If you are ceratin that the problem arose simply from hibernating, then restoring should do the trick!

Hope this helps!

Just bought an acer aspire ax1200-b1581a.it worked fine for a few days now it will pop up there was a problem with the internet and shut the itnernet down,it started out going blue screen and at the bottom...


I think the problem is related to virus. Try restoring your PC to an earlier date 9 a date when it worked fine). You do this from Start-> Programs -> Accesories -> System Tools -> System Restore. Select
Restore my computer to an earlier time and Click Next. A date calender will appear, select the preferred date and click Next twice. The system will automatically restart when restoration is done.

If u are not abe to run System Restore then you need to enter safe mode by pressing F8 during booting and selecting Safe Mode from the menu that appears. In safe mode you will be asked a question, you have to select no, and system restore will start

If restoring your pc does not solve the problem then you may need to reinstall your OS.

Dell 1501 inspiron laptop blank screen


Hi,

Have you installed any application/program prior to the blue screen? Most blue screen causes your system not to boot to your operating system anymore. It is possible that your hard drive is crashed due to a virus infections or spywares. Incompatibility and corrupted system registry may affect your system to have blue screen as well.

You may try the following steps below.

1. Restart your computer. After you pressed the power button to restart. Keep on tapping F8 key on the keyboard on and off.

2. Boot advanced option will show up on the screen. You may boot your computer to the following option.

a. Last known good configuration
b. Safe mode with Networking.

If Safe mode w/networking works, restore your computer to an earlier using the system restore features.

Keep me posted.

Regards,

jeff

some viruses will stop you using the restore function,run anti virus and anti spy ware

then try this:

have your o/s disc ready as this will check all the system files and replace any that has got corrupted, from the o/s disc.
