Emachine EL1852 keep on restarting


Hi,
Does it load operating system fully before restarting?If it does,run a full scan of the drive with an updated anti-virus.
If not,do a reboot[enslave] of your hard disk from another computer.This is how to:-
Remove the hard disk from your machine.
Disconnect CD/DVD ROM from machine 2 and connect your hard drive.
Start the machine.'You're trying to run Unix' alert comes on, press f1[ save changes].
A disk check operation starts.This repairs the operating system on your hard disk.
After successful loading operating system of machine2,turn it off and remove your drive.
Fix it on your machine and start it.

Hope this helps.Thanks!

On start up it loads up and after the acer screen, it says dtwzr compressed, press ctl alt del to restart after doing this it dosent get any further in the start up?


Hi

Try to press F8 when booting up and then it will run your computer at safe mode. Then try to free some space or uninstall programs that might corrupted your operating system. Faulty installed software may harm your computer.

Try also to run the SCAN DISK for checking some errors.

Go to START, ACCESSORIES, SYSTEM TOOLS, SCAN DISK FOR CHECKING ERROR AND WILL FIX AS WELL.

I hope it helps solve your problem. Please post comments if you need more help. Regards

My toshiba laptop Model name SATELLITE PRO M40 X AR get hang in between and take very long for start up.


It could be possibility that there is a large number of programs on the startup list of the computer that is why it is starting slow. You can try to remove some programs from the startup list by:
Start->Run->msconfig
then on top of the new window click on startup tab and uncheck all the boxes over there and then click OK at the bottom and restart the computer.

Let us know if that helped the computer in speeding up or not. You can also chat with us online at hnetworking.com and if you want then we can take the remote access of the computer to help you better. :-)

Hi there Minhas.----------

Thats weird, can you flip your keyboard and give your keyboard some clean-up. From what i see you have a stock key, near the BACKSPACE.

And about your Restart thing. I suggest you Dust your Machine.

Hope that helps...

Frezzes up, and I can not get it to come on, please help!!


Hi there

Thanks for posting your problem on fixya

I give you some steps for repair hard drives please follow all the steps very carefully :

Check disk

REPAIR Hard drive - THROUGH CHEKDISK command.
------------------------------------------------------
Step One: Open "My Computer", RIGHT click on the C drive icon, choose "Properties".

Step Two: When that loads, click on the "Tools" tab, then click on the "Check Now" button in the "Error

Checking" section.

Step Three: When that little window loads, place a CHECK in BOTH boxes, then click on "Start Now".

Step Four: A message will pop up saying that Error Checking will run after you restart the computer, so......Restart the computer. Error Checking will run automatically after the restart and it locks you out from doing anything until it's finished. It takes a little time to perform the task but after it's finished, it will restart into Windows automatically.

De fragment

Click on start >> Programms >>accessories >> System tools >> Defrag

Defrag your hard drive >> This may take some time.

After this system would be slow for couple of hours and then would be efficient.

please open your antivirus and do a complete scan and fix the errors.

Pls rate this solution according to its use in you. it will be much appreciated........

Thanks

Problem with a disk read error


There are a couple of possibilities.

1. The hard drive is defective.

2. The operating system is corrupt.

The easiest way to test this is to run the restore cd that came with the computer to reload Windows.

If you get this error while running the restore cd then you will need to get a new hard drive.
