Power connection to computer came out during shutdown yesterday. Today, turning on, it will not boot up.


You are going to need a clean boot up disk. You will have to get one mailed to you or you will have to use another computer to download one. This will get you back into a point that you can do a windows restore. This is going to get rid of all programs and start you fresh. I do, however, feel that you disk drive is going out or already shot. You should do a Chkdsk on it. (check disk). This will tell you if it is a hard drive error or not.

Hi i need to upgrade my old pc . i whant to buy a graphic card to play all the new games 2011 but i dont know what g card to buy. my motherboard it is :Mainboard >>> > Manufacturer :...


if you have a old PC then upgrading the graphics card alone will not get your computer up to date to play 2011 games, you might need to buy a whole new 2011 computer. Go online and do a system requirement test of the game you are willing to download or buy and play.

Cursor lockup


This just because that there are too many services running in the background of the Operating system

All you need to do is to manually disable maximum of them and disable all the startup Items

Here is how you can do that the easy way

Manual steps to perform a clean boot in Windows XP
Step 1: Start the System Configuration Utility
Click Start, click Run, type msconfig, and then click OK.

The System Configuration Utility dialog box appears.

Step 2: Configure selective startup options
1. In the System Configuration Utility dialog box, click the General tab, and then click Selective Startup.
2. Click to clear the Process SYSTEM.INI File check box.
3. Click to clear the Process WIN.INI File check box.
4. Click to clear the Load Startup Items check box.
5. Click the Services tab.
6. (VERY IMPORTANT DON'T MISS THIS) Click to select the Hide All Microsoft Services check box.
7. Click Disable All, then Click on the startup tab and click on Disable All Button and then click OK..
8. When you are prompted, click Restart to restart the computer.

Step 3: Log on to Windows

You have used the System Configuration Utility to make changes to the way Windows starts.

The System Configuration Utility is currently in Diagnostic or Selective Startup mode, causing this message to be displayed and the utility to run every time Windows starts.

Choose the Normal Startup mode on the General tab to start Windows normally and undo the changes you made using the System Configuration Utility.

Step 4: Optional step to disable features
This step temporarily disables Microsoft features such as Plug and Play, networking, event logging, and error reporting. Also, this step permanently removes the restore points from the computer. The System Restore feature uses restore points to restore your computer to an earlier state. If you remove the restore points, you can no longer restore Windows to an earlier state.
1. Click Start, click Run, type msconfig, and then click OK.

The System Configuration Utility dialog box appears.
2. Click the General tab, click to clear the Load System Services check box, and then click OK.
