The asus x53s that i got displays a error message at start-up that says w3dbsmgr engine failed to start , what can i do to fix this


Will the system boot up all the way and let you use it inspite of the message? When did this message start appearing?

You could try rolling your system back to a date before the message started appearing by running System Restore.

Click Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore. In Windows 7 Click Start then type: System Restore in the search box and look up and Click System Restore. Select a Restore Point (date and time) that is before you started having problems. System Restore does not delete you data, documents music, pictures, videos or programs (unless the program was installed after the restore point you selected).

System Recovery loses all your data, documents, music, pictures, videos and programs. It sets your system back to the time you first purchased it.

You could check your system startup menu.

Click Start/Programs and look for the RUN command. You might see it anywhere once you click Programs, or it might be inside the Accessories folder. Click RUN and when it opens up type "msconfig.exe" (without the quotes) then hit ok.

When the System Configuration window opens click the Startup tab. In the Startup Tab we are only concerned with 2 columns, the first column which is the Startup Items and the column that says Command. You can put your mouse pointer between two column headings and it will turn into a +, then hold the left mouse button and drag the column over to the right to expand it so you can read what's below it.

Now everything has a check mark beside it. This means that everytime you start your computer, these items have to load and run. Most of the stuff is good, but there might be so viruses that are running also so we want to remove the check mark from them.

Start with the first time listed under the startup item column and look at it and look at the command for it. Most times you will see something under the command such as Adobe, Yahoo, Dell, HP, etc. that you know are ok so go to the next item. Also if you see something under the command like C:\Program Files\.... then it's ok, also C:\Windows\System32\.... then it's ok.

If you see something that does not have anything under the Command column, remove the check mark, it's a virus that's trying to hide.
If you see something that says something like: dumprep 0 -k in the startup item column remove the check mark from it.

Look for anything that runs W3dbsmgr in the command column and remove the check mark to keep it from starting when you boot the computer.
Reboot machine.

Hp pavilion slimline s3600t desktop pc - Wont boot up, flashes to blue screen after hp blue screen and restarts. no option for safe mode either


A Blue Screen is more time than not indicative of a driver issue or some hardware issue. First of all when it boots to the screen that shows Safe Mode and the other options, scroll down and see if there is an option to Stop or Disable Automatic Restart on Boot. This will stop the screen from restarting itself when the blue screen appears and give you a chance to read and see what the error is. Afterwards it is ok to run Startup Repair. Startup Repair does not delete any of your personal files. Let startup repair run and then see if it boots. Once again, startup repair does not delete any of your music, documents, pictures, videos or programs. System Restore does not delete any of you documents, music, pictures, videos or programs. System Recovery WILL DELETE all of your music, pictures, videos, documents & any programs you've added since you brought the computer home from the store. System Recovery sets your computer back to the very first time you turned it on after you purchased it. I would run the startup repair, if that does not fix your problem, see if you can run a System Restore. A lot of time the Restore Points are damaged or missing when this happens, but give it a try and restore to a point before you started having the blue screen issue. If all fails you're going to need a system disc so that you can get into the Recovery Console so that you can enter a dos command in the little black box that opens up with white letters. You want to type: chkdsk /r
Let it run. It will run well over an hour and you will notice the percentage of completion going from high to low, but that's ok. Let it run to completion then try rebooting. If this doesn't work, you're going to need to take it to a repair shop or reload the operating system yourself.

Hi I'm struggling with what i'm sure is an easy problem (probably settings?) to fix. I'm IM-ing a friend. Their chat box has all the usual options available - mine is like 'cut down'. Can't share photos,...


they may not be using yahoo IM if this is the case... VERY FEW people use this messenger, I certainly have not for years. I currently use pidgin and adium which do not have webcam capibility but do allow filetransfer, encryption and also allow communication on msn/aim/gmail and many other protocols as well as yahooIM.

You have too many programs queued to run at startup. Click "Start" and then "Run". Type in "MSCONFIG" and hit return.

Click the startup tab and this is a listing of all the programs that load at startup. Keep all your firewall and antivirus programs, but you can shut off just about anything else, like Java Updater, Quicktime, iTunes updater, etc. etc.

Yahoo takes awhile to load up when I turn my pc


When your computer loads it loads a series of startup programs. You can view these start-up items by going to: Start Run Type this: msconfig Click the tab that says "startup" Most likely your computer has a limited amount of memory and cannot load yahoo messenger very quickly. You have the option to uncheck anything in your start up items that you don't use on a regular basis. Be sure to research what you uncheck, because it may need used. Good luck!

Audio Distortion after System Crash


sorry for the late reply. im using windows. im quite sure that there's no virus involved with the distortion of my sound. this is what happened.

1. im surfing the net while listening to music(full volume)
2.)then suddenly the sound gets a bit distorted(jumps,skips)
3.)then everything hangs up which forced me to reboot
4.)the windows loading screen became too long(like 5mins) before it takes me to the main desktop(start up programs loads like 48 years also).
5.)when i play music ,the sound is very much(like alien,"rrrrrrr")

i tried reinstalling the drivers but nothing was fixed. i've even tried Regcure.

i just formatted my notebook and voila its back to normal.
i dunno but i think playing loud music using laptop, or in my case notebook speakers would cause this problem. im using external speakers now and i've got no problems. i just hope that there would be a fix to this problem so that i wont have to reformat if the problem occurs again
