An odd message on my computer

I use a HP Pavillion 1200e computer. When I am on some websites a message pops up in the middle of my screen. It reads ''A runtime error has ocurred. Do you want to debug?'' If I hit YES nothing happens. If I hit NO the message disappears but reappears within a few seconds. If I hit NO repeatedly the message might disappear for as long as a minute.
Any ideas?

    I went to the windows update site. It appears that I have to get a code and download some sort of membership. Is that correct?

This sounds accurate, you probably do need an update, you don't need a membership, however microsoft uses something called "Genuine Windows Advantage". That checks to see if your copy of windows is valid before it will allow you to do some of the upgrades. Once you have a valid copy you shouldn't have a problem.

You need to update your Microsoft .NET framework. Do this at the regular Windows update site.

    No, you don't need a code or any sort of membership. You DO need to allow Microsoft to validate your copy of Windows. If you are using a stolen copy it won't work.

Access cmos hp pavillion a200n


Exactly what are you trying to do? Are you talking about the Bios or System Setup? if so just reboot your computer and watch the screen for which key it says to hit to get into the Bios or System Setup. You have to hit the key when you see the message or it will not work and you will have to start again.

If you are talking about the CMOS battery that is on the motherboard: Remove the power cord, Remove the case, turn the computer on it's side and look inside for a shiny nickle size battery and use a small flat head screw driver to pop it out. The most common size is CR2032 and you can purchase it anywhere for $5 or so.

My computor is HP pavillion a1640n and it does show some message in white after it starts opening up the in flash of a second it disapears and the screen comes on what can i do not to see this message...


It sounds like you're describing the BIOS screen. This is an image that appears whenever the computer first starts up, and only lasts for a second or two, after which Windows begins to start up. Unfortunately, it's not possible to stop the screen from displaying; it's an important part of the boot process and allows technicians to enter diagnostic screens if necessary.
