First, check the CPU temperature in the BIOS. See if the CPU fan is working fine and is seated correctly. also check if you can get into safe mode.

When I leave my computer for more than 5 minutes, the monitor turns black and I am unable to access my data. I have to use the power button to shut down and start all over again.


Just change the power settings to never turn your monitor off or never put your pc to sleep when idle.

For Windows 7:

Click on Start.

Go to Control Panel.

Go to Power Options.

Click on Change Plan Settings.

Make sure both Turn off the display and Put the computer to sleep is set to never.

Click on Save Changes.

Restart your pc.


The steps should be similar for Windows Vista and Windows XP.

I m unable to open my bios setup utility, I hav IBM A51 8122 KQP desktop.


To start the Setup Utility program, do the following:

1. If your computer is already on when you start this procedure, shut down the operating system and turn off the computer.

2. Press and hold the F1 key then turn on the computer. When you hear multiple beeps, release the F1 key.

Notes:

a. If you have a USB keyboard installed on your computer and the Setup Utility does not display using this method, turn on the computer, then immediately press and release the F1 key repeatedly until the Setup Utility displays.

b. If a user password or an administrator password has been set, the Setup Utility program menu is not displayed until you type your password.

I hope this helps.

My hp computer shuts off when i turn it on and it starts loading?


ur computer cant start bcoz ur boot information or file might be corrupted or the windows is unable to find any necessary drivers.
Try to start ur pc in safemode
u can do this by pressing F8 before ur boot screen appears and then scan ur computer with an antivirus or restore ur windows backup.
if this doesnt help then u hv to format ur operating system.

Start wile pressing the F8 or TAB key and select the last time your computer worked properly, otherwise try to start in safe mode and restore it the previous day. If this does not rectify it or u are unable to even get there, best option is to Insert your OS CD and boot from CD ROM. Select install, but on the same partion that your OS is loaded on. The screen will display that another version of windows already exist. DO NOT SELECT AUTO REPAIR but go ahead untill u reach the option to repair by pressing the "R" key, do so and follow the instructions on the screen. This will not cause any loss of Data or programs installed other than correct the SYSTEM FILES of WINDOWS. Hopefully one of the above should work....sodeep

Check Your Keyboard Connection, Then Restart Your Computer


Checking the connections and restarting the computer will make sure the keyboard is plugged in properly and the computer is correctly recognizing the keyboard.

To check the keyboard connection and restart the computer:
1. Shut down your computer:

* If using Windows® 98 or Windows® Me, click the Start button, then click Shut Down. In the What do you want the computer to do? section, choose the Shut Down option by clicking it, then click the OK button.
* If using Windows® XP or Windows® 2000, click the Start button, then click Shut Down. Click the What do you want the computer to do? drop-down menu to open it, choose the Shut Down option from the list, click it, then click the OK button.

2. Follow the cord from the keyboard to where it plugs into the computer.
3. Unplug the keyboard cord.
4. Wait for about 30 seconds.
5. Plug in the keyboard cord.
6. Turn on your computer.
