Try a system restore if it will allow you. If not you may need to run a system repair with your recovery or operating system disc.

How to avoid losing your work in case a program stops responding


Sometimes, while doing some specific work on your PC or browsing the internet, the program you're using suddenly stops responding without any apparent reason. If you hadn't been saving your work regularly, you'll most likely lose it when Windows prompts you to close the program.

There's however a solution that could help you avoid such frustration. Here are the steps to follow in case a program stops responding :

1. Once you encounter such a problem, don't close the program you're using.

2. Open the Task Manager by pressing Ctrl + Alt + Delete.

3. In the "Processes" tab, find "explorer.exe", choose it and click "End Process" on the bottom right.

4. Click "Yes" (Everything you see in the background will disappear but don't panic, it will come back).

5. Click "File" on the top left.

4. Choose "New Task (Run...)"

5. Write "explorer.exe" in the box.

And everything comes back! You can now resume your work...

OSD LOCKED.


OSD probably refers to on screen display. and since the error message specifically states Windows XP you can eliminate anything that is not running Windows XP as the OS so likely suspect is #1.

My 2008 Chevy Equinox intermittently gives me messages that say "service stabilitrak" and "stabilitrak off." Sometimes I can drive it for a coupld of days with the stabilitrak working...


If you get an ABS (anti lock brake system) light on as well, you probably have a bad front wheel bearing (the ABS wheel speed sensor is built-in). Check the harnesses going to the sensors first, they may be damaged from turning. If no ABS light accompanying the Stabilitrak message, then you will need to get it scanned for a diagnostic code to further evaluate.
