Question about HP Computers & Internet
My computer only works in "safe mode". I tried rebooting, hitting f8 and selecting "normal mode" and "last known good configuration". Neither work! It happened once before, I deleted some software I had installed, and it worked. About 2-3 weeks later, it happened again, and I can't figure out what else to do!
As for 'Speedupmypc', Little House on the Prairie makes my computer faster, or Bozo the Clown loves my PC, FORGET ABOUT IT!
I, and others can show you how to speed up your computer, without that cr@p. (Excuse my language)
For one, if you repair your Windows, and then come back with a full install, (Destructive Installation), you WILL speed up your PC.
When a Harddrive reaches 50 percent full, the computer slows down.
No secret marvel here.
When a Harddrive reaches 70 percent full, YOU start noticing it for real.
All you are doing is removing all the extra stuff you've been putting on, and bringing the computer back to when it didn't have that extra stuff.
The stuff that filled that Harddrive up.
Ordinarily when you want to speed your computer up, you look in Add/Remove Programs, and delete the programs you hardly ever use, or do not use at all.
DO NOT remove ANY Windows programs!
This makes more room on the harddrive.
Now remove all the personal stuff you could store on disks, flashdrives, or external harddrive.
Pictures, videos, music, documents you have created, documents you have downloaded; you get the picture.
The more room on the harddrive, the faster the computer.
Next we get to the Registry.
When you delete programs there are left-over fragments of files.
When you go to ANY website, there are cookies put on your harddrive.
When you delete anything from your computer, there is always fragments of files left behind.
All this is JUNK takes up room on the harddrive.
Doesn't work very well. DO suggest using it, but also use a Registry cleaner.
I use CCleaner.
A) It's FREE
B) It works as well as paid for registry cleaners, and better than some.
Hey, it's a free program, and no one is making any money, or other lucrative offers here.
I know every website you go to is always,
"USE THIS, it's the BEST!"
I'm just a computer geek sitting here telling you about it.
I have for 3 years on FixYa, and 5 years elsewhere.
I use it. Works very well. That's all I can tell ya.
Need guidance in downloading, installing, and using CCleaner, just post back in a Comment.
Yes. There are functions that are ONLY for advanced users.
I will guide you using the basic features, and that is all you'll need. You won't be able to mess anything up.
(NOT indicating you would, just saying you won't be able to)
Okay,.........that's about it for me. Time to collect my toys, and go home. I think I smell dinner cooking......................

SOURCE: computer will not start
Choose Last Known Good Configuration. If that doesn't work, choose Safe Mode and then do a system restore to roll back your PC.

You might want to try going into setup and setting your boot drive options to DVD drive as your 1st, HD as 2nd and Floppy as 3rd. Put your windows disk in the DVD before boot and run the program from DVD.
