My Vestro 1510 switched off itself after showing blue screen with saying dumping of physical memory!!


There are a few things you can check, the memory and the hard drive and wifi may be the easiest. It sounds like you have a failing piece of hardware, the thing to do is systematically isolate things to see if you can get the computer to run. For example, start by removing one memory stick and turning on the system, if that doesn't work put it back and remove the other, if you still have a problem try the wifi card, etc. That being said, my guess is that your operating system is corrupt and you may need a new hard drive or a re- installation of the OS. If you can still get into the BIOS that is the most likely solution but I cannot be certain. If you have a spare hard drive install it and see if it works.

Added RAM memory and did windows disk check on my Sony Vaio desktop with Windows xp, now IE and other programs will not open. Nothing happens when icons are clicked and bottom toolbar does not load i


First, remove the memory and replace the old memory, does the help? Be sure to unplug and REMOVE battery. Second, do a system restore to before this problem. Is the memory the exact type that was removed? Open the Task Manager and look for a process "explorer.exe" select and click on "end process", in the task manager open file, New Task (run..) in Create new Task type: explorer, click on OK.

Blue screen appears & keep restarting


It is possible that the malware is to blame, in which case a computer technician will need to sort it out.

I think it may be a bad memory module or loose memory module connection.

Take care!

Laptop dell inspiron n5010 hanging suddenly


There are many things that might cause your PC to run slowly or restart at time and then. It could be a fragmented disk; fragmented registry; a virus, Trojan, or spy ware; high CPU and/or utilization due to too many programs running; high disk I/O; or something else.

To check your CPU and memory utilization, run Task Manager. You can start Task Manager by pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL and then clicking on the Task Manager Button. In Task manager, click on the Performance tab and check CPU Usage and PF Usage. PF Usage is an indicator of memory usage. If one or both of these is high, click on the Processes tab, and sort the columns by CPU or Memory to see what processes are consuming the resource. If you are not sure what the process "Image name" is for, Google the name and you should find what the process is for.

If your CPU and memory usage are reasonable, then you may have a different issue. Even if you running anti-virus software, it may be beneficial to scan your PC with another scanner to check for viruses. Here is a few good virus scanners that you can run to check your PC:

System is running slow and will not open programmes ie microsoft launcer? Laptop was working fine last night, no software as been instaled


To check what is going on with your computer do some tests.
1)Open task manager and check which program is taking more memory and CPU

2)Start operating system in safe mode and check the performance. (To start in safe mode press f8 while booting). If it works fine in safe mode then some program is causing issue.
3)Update your anti virus program and scan your system

Laptop boots then shuts automatically off


Try this, if you have a fast hand, the second it boots, push Ctrl+Shift+Esc and end taskeng.exe.
If you can't do it fast enough, try booting into safe mode, going to scheduled tasks, and removing any suspicious ones.
If you don't know how to boot to safe mode, push f8 until you see a screen which allows you to choose safe mode.
