My computer msi brand is automatically restarting and some problem are appear but i cant read becouse it is continusly restarting...i rem the time when im not in my mood and keep badtrip to my computer so...


You have two options to remedy the problem. You really need to access the computer in Safe Mode and view the System Logs to determine the offending piece of hardware or software or virus. But your real question is how to stop the reboot. Use the F8 Key during boot. Right after you turn the computer on, start hitting the F8 Key. The Windows Boot MEnu will appear. at this point you can do one of two things to try to fix the problem. You can enter the computer in Safe Mode which load Windows with only the minimal necessary hardware and software drivers.If you want to see the error message, choose option 8 which tells the computer not to automatically restart after an error. This will enable you to determine the error message on the screen and prevent the system from just going through an endless loop of starting, erroring-out and restarting..

F8 (during boot) Holding F8 when booting displays the Windows Boot Menu
SHIFT (during boot) Holding SHIFT down when booting forces Windows into Safe Mode

Let me know if I can be of any other assistance to you

How to setup an all-in-one printer to scan to a computer.


You purchased an all-in-one system and hooked it up as a printer but now you want to be able to scan documents into your computer and save them to disk. How do you do this?

If you already have the unit hooked up to print you probably loaded the software off the disk which came with the unit. In many cases though you do not need to load the software as most units are plug and play. You just plug them in and the software is already in the operating system. The catch is that only the software for printing is available from the operating system.
There are two ways to load the drivers for the scanning process. One is from the supplied disk and the other is from the manufacturers driver download site on the internet. The advantage of downloading from the site is you will get the most up to date drivers and possible prloblems should be solved making for less problems for you. I will describe both options starting with downloading from a CD.

If you did not load the software from the disk yet, open the CD drive on your computer and load the disc which came with the printer.

It should start automatically, but if it does not, click on "My computer" if the icon is on your desktop, or click on start which will open a window containing "My computer".

Clicking on "my computer" will open a new window which should show the various drives (C, D, DVD-CD, etc). You need to click on the icon which shows the driver disc for the printer.

It will more than likely refer to the printer by model number. Once launched the software should be automatic and install all the necessary software drivers to run the printer to include scanning to your computer. Follow the on screen instructions and answer any questions. You may be asked where you want to store it, always choose the "C" drive.

When the software is done loading you may or may not have to reboot your computer. I always recommend rebooting, whether told to or not, to ensure that the software is accessable to the operating system.

Once the computer is rebooted you should see an Icon to launch the printer, if you do not see it, click on start. Next you will see "all programs" at the bottom of the window. Click or mouse over this. A new window will open which will show all the software on the computer. All the programs will be listed alphabetically. Find "HP 1350" and mouse over it. Find the main program (usually the name of the printer) and "RIGHT CLICK" on it.

This opens a window which gives you selections, one of which is, "create a desktop icon". Click on that and close all windows. You now should have an icon on the desktop which will link you to the software.

Click on the icon. The software will boot up and you should see a selection for "scan a document to the computer" or something similar.

Click on that choice and the rest should be automatic. Follow the on-screen instructions and you should be able to scan and save to disk anything you would like.

To install the driver from the internet log on and Google the manufacturers website. There should be a tab for support. Open this and click on driver/software downloads or perhaps just downloads. This should open another window where you enter your model number and possibly other information.

Once you are at the download page choose the driver for your operating system (XP, Vista, 7) and the number of bits (32 or 64). Sometimes this is automatic. Proceed with the download by hitting the download button. This will open a window asking if you want to run or save the program. Run the program. It should be automatic from this point but if not just follow the instructions.

When the download completes you may have to reboot. If not reboot anyway. You should see a message that new programs were installed. Now you are at the same point as above when loading from disk after the reboot and can follow the instructions above to finish the process.

Thanks for using FixYa and the great rating.

HOW TO REINSTALL WINDOWS XP OR INSTALLING CLEAN COPY


How to reinstall Windows XP operating system or installing fresh copy of Windows XP on your computer.

If your Windows XP operating system had problem due to corrupted files, viruses problem or you want to upgrade your system. This procedure will guide you in reinstalling your current Windows XP or installing fresh copy.

After this installing process, you need all your hardware drivers like Chipset Intel driver, LAN driver, Sound driver, WAN driver, Webcam driver and others for the computer to be fully operational. Otherwise, do not proceed on reinstalling you operating system if your do not have those hardware drivers.

CDROM drive is required for installing Windows XP. If you don't have in your notebook computer, use external CDROM drive to connect in your computer using a USB cable.


1. To start with, you need to back up your in blank CD all your important files before you begin installation produre because all the data will be wipe out.

2. When ready, start your computer and when booting press F2 to
BIOS setting.

3. On BIOS menu, choose the BOOT setting and change the priority boot to CDROM, exit and save.

In some laptops, you can skip this BIOS setting process by repeatedly pressing F9 key or F10key when booting your computer and it will run boot priority on CD.

4. Once you exit from BIOS, you computer will reboot and a message will appear " Press any key to boot from CD", press any key to enter into WINDOWS XP SET UP.

5. Belows instruction messages will appear:

* To set up Windows XP now, press ENTER
* To repair Windows XP installation using recovery console, press R
* To quit set up without installing Windows XP, press F3

Press ENTER to initiate the installation.

6. You will go to Windows XP license agreement and press F8 to agree.

7. You will ask you if you want to REPAIR or REINSTALL the operating system. It will appear like this. Just press ESC to proceed.

A. To repair the selected Windows XP installation, press R.
B. To continue installing fresh copy of Windows XP without repairing, press ESC.

From repairing your operating system, it will not removed all your files and other software installed in your computer including your hardware drivers installed. Just fixing the operating system.

For reinstalling the operating system, you need to back up all you files because it will wipe out all you datas in your computer.

8. After that, it ask you where partition you want to install the operating system. The message will display like this :

C : Partition1 [NTFS]
D : Partition2 [NTFS]
Unpartitioned Space

Use the directional key to navigate and choose C: Partition1 if you want reinstalling Windows XP and press enter.

If you want clean copy of Windows XP, you need to delete both partition by pressing L and install clean copy at Unpartitioned space. By these procedure, you will have C: drive only. D: Drive is delete.

9. After choosing the desire partition. this will appear :

* Format the partition using NTFS files system
* Format the partition using the NFTS file

I suggest to choose the first line which is the quick format. The 2nd line take too much time to install the operating system. Press to initiate the installation and it will be finish and reboot automatically. PART OF WINDOWS INSTALLATION IS FINISHED.

If you had interrupted installation which is asking for certain driver file, your CD installer maybe damage which cause files to be unreadable. Try to replace the new Windows XP installer CD to proceed and until finished installing OS.

10. Once it reboots, this time do not boot from CD or do not press any key to go to PART2 OF WINDOWS XP INSTALLATION PROCESS.

11. On the opening, regional and laguage option will appear, jus click next.

17. Now wait until the installation process end and it will again restart automatically.

18. Again, do not boot from CD and display setting will appear. Just click OK.

19. welcom to Microsoft Windows screen will appear. Just click next.

20. Helps protect your PC will appear and choose Turn on Automatic Updates ( Only if you install genuine Windows XP). Otherwise, I suggest to choose "Not right not" if you are installing copy only of Windows XP.

Cannot get out of Configurating updates: stage 3 of 3 screen


This is all I could find:


It's not only Windows Vista Service Pack 1 that isn't ready for general consumer availability. Some of the updates released on February 12, 2008, as a part of the Microsoft monthly patch cycle, have managed to effectively kill Windows Vista. Users are reporting that, following the introduction of the February 12 updates, Vista gets stuck at the finalization of the deployment of the updates displaying the message "Configuring Updates Stage 3 of 3 0% completes" and then entering
an infinite reboot loop. And there is absolutely no way out for the end users, because canceling the configuration process of the updates is a move equivalent to losing access to the operating system entirely. This will even happen in Safe Mode.

Microsoft has yet to officially respond to the issue, or to provide a resolve or at least a workaround. However, it does seem at this point that there is an issue with the deployment of the pre-requisite updates necessary for the smooth installation of Windows Vista SP1. Namely, the problem resides in the Vista installation software. The fact of the matter is that end users will have to first update the Vista installation software and only then deploy the remaining February 12 updates and only at the end Vista SP1 RTM.

If you are stuck watching the "Configuring Updates Stage 3 of 3 0% complete Do not turn off Computer" and in the endless reboot loop, then stop the cycle and boot from the Vista media. You will need to "Repair your computer," so select your Vista installation and restore it to a point before the deployment of the updates. After gaining back access to your operating system, you will have to install the service stack update, namely Update for Windows Vista (KB937287). Deploy this update before any other on your Vista, and only then install the rest. At this point in time, you should experience no more problems.

"Update 937287 is a prerequisite package that contains updates to the Windows Vista installation software. The installation software is the component that handles the installation and the removal of software updates, language packs, optional Windows features, and service packs. Update 937287 is necessary to successfully install and to remove Windows Vista SP1 on all versions of Windows Vista," Microsoft revealed.
