Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Vista shut down while I was on Internet, saying was doing so to protect my files. Now, says "no operating system found". I believe it is a virus. Sony wants me to run recovery CD, which is back ordered for 3 weeks, and I would prefer to recover my personal files before doing that. Hard drive is functionally good, and recognized in BIO. Anything I can try to get booted? Do they make a good Vista boot/repair CD that I could buy somewhere?

    What is hardks? Not understanding your solution. I can't boot because "operating system not found", and I don't have a Windows Vista CD, or the Sony Recovery CD.



    Sony support walked me through the push F10 and push F2 during boot, but their is no back-up partition to boot from. I never made a back-up when the computer was new, so that partition does not exist. I'm OK if the only way to fix this condition is to use the Sony Recovery CD, but I would like to use some data recovery software to try and save my files before I run the recovery CD.

This is nothing to do with internet explorer. It is about you operating system that was corrupt. You need Operating System disk to repair your system. That will solve your problem. Possible reasons:

1.Maybe you uninstall some programs files associated operating system. Try not to uninstall any programs.

2.Maybe you virus attacked you computer that even you had virus protection when it is not update. it will possible to acquire virus by surfing through the internet or by uSB flash disk.

EACH TIME I AM ON THE INTERNET ON MY PC IT SHUTS DOWN FOR NO REASON, MY SON HAS A LAPTOP ON AT THE SAME TIME, HIS STAYS ON . THE ROUTER IS DOWNSTAIRS WITH THE LAPTOP + THE PC IS UPSTAIRS ?


There could be and issue with what is call collision which is rare but happens when the router is located in a spot where both computer are use at the same time but the most dominantly used computer will take up the bandwidth and the other computer will be shut down to restart.
Another issue may be a virus in the system.
Gaming sites or place on the internet that are scanned with your anti virus software will cause shutdown. To protect the PC. Usually you will get a warning that "this site is unknown" and the PC will go into shut down due to the firewall settings.
1. check the location of the router and see if you can relocate the router to the upper floor.
2. check your sons computer for viruses
3. scan your computer also
4. Download a program call Ccleaner for registry cleaning. this is found with a Google search for the official site. This program usually will clean you "temp, file, history and etc if set properly. Instruction how to use is on the site and in the program.
5. check your anti virus software settings

My sisters A205-S5804 laptop keeps shutting down but only when it's processing files..If it's idle it sits there for hours


it may be overheating, when it processes files the proc gets hot i suggest a cooling pad of some type see if that helps, when it shuts down, is it hot? are you getting any messages or does it just shut down. try this: hit windows key +R and when the box pops up type eventvwr and check the system logs and see if it tells you why it's shutting down. if it's heat related it should say. let me know if you need any help

My Compaq Presario 700 CM2130 failed to boot one day out of the blue. It just gave me an error message saying Operating System Not Found. I put in the disk for Windows XP and after a few minutes of loading...


When you get to the BIOS window, do you get a message saying that is going to shut down in some period of time of does it just shut down?

Here is my best guess and solution. I believe you've got a worm virus. If you have nothing that you want on this hard drive, and you've got a full install Windows XP disk, I'd do a full install with a complete format, not a quick format, FAT32, if you can, NTFS, if you can't and reinstall Windows XP.

Norton internet security 2009 has shut down and said (at risk fix now) when i click fix now it doesnt install the updates and keeps saying it is at risk. what do i do???


if you want my honest opinion i would wipe Norton from your system as it is useless and inevitably wrecks your computer, i would suggest you download the latest AVG virus protection software and the latest update of spyware doctor, i work in a rental company and these are the 2 virus protection programs we run on all our systems and they haven't failed us yet there easy to use and update

How i can protect my pc from virus.pls help me


To protect your computer system from viruses, you should install an updated anti virus. I recommend you to use full version of avast antivirus or AVG 8. Scan your computer and when viruses are detected, delete those infected files and viruses found from the virus vault. Also manually update it. Don't forget to install only one antivirus on your system. Installing more than one antivirus may clash down your system.
