SOURCE: I have an acer travelmate

ok my friend as you said the operating system is not loading any more so that means we are having some corrupt files that makes the windows to fail while trying to boot up.

and since you cannot even log in to the computer even in safe mode that means you have only two options.

first is to try a repair (most of the computers use F12 key to get to the repair counsel).
second reinstalling windows.

so try the first one if it doesn't work then reinstalling windows will be the last thing to do.

if you need and further help please let me know

cheers

SOURCE: system won't boot up window XP

HI Joe. It's likely you have a virus. Or could be just a corrupted section of the hard drive. The F8 is what gets you to the black screen with the differnt boot options. F2 or Del button gets you in the the BIOS or start up instrutions for the PC. F 12 will get you boot device options. The F12 or F2 needs to be pressed before it ever gets to try starting windows. So when you first power on, immediately start tapping the F12 about once a second. This should bring up a menu of which items/ device, to start from. [If you get a stuck key message just clear it and continue tapping F12 or start over] I would suggest you use the windos CD and choose the CD device to boot from, then it will recognize the CD drive. You could follow the CD start up options to peform a repair of windows. If you do a repair, then you should also perform a virus scan immediately after. If after all that, you still have issues, then it's likely the hard drive itself is bad or going bad and you should look at replaceing it. Good luck.

PC keeps rebooting itself after G Data software installed


You should not use G-Data antivirus anymore, because the Blue Screen error you are experiencing right now is due to incompatibility of the antivirus with the OS. Moreover, you have told us that other G-Data antivirus users have the same issue. So, you must not use it.
According to users and webpage reviews, some of the best and user-friendly free antiviruses are MSE, Avast, AVG, etc. I've used all of them and they are more or less equally good.
If you are using genuine windows you can use Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE). This one is very light-weight.
Dowload MSE here: windows.microsoft.com/MSE
If you are not using genuine windows or if you are not a windows user, you can use Avast or AVG.
Download Avast here: www.avast.com/free-antivirus-download Download AVG here: free.avg.com/us-en/free-antivirus-download

NOTE: You can get automatic or scheduled virus scans and signature updates with these anti-viruses also. :)
Hope this helps, Mrityunjay.

I run windows xp and often the voice goes out and I have to reboot. This happens generally about two days after I reboot. Thanks in advance for your help.


If the sound comes back after Restart even you don't do anything, then there must be some problem with your computer, not only with the Sound driver. It's possible that the sound driver ceases after it runs for a while and it resumes only after the system is restarted. I would highly recommend you to reinstall the sound driver. You can download the sound driver here (Click Here).

I would also suggest you to scan your computer with few antivirus programs. You can use Avg Free, Avira Free and Avast Free. Run full system scans with these antiviruses, but don't forget to install only one of them at a time otherwise it might cause another problem. I hope you have at least one security software (antivirus or antispyware etc..) installed on your computer. Uninstall the currently installed antivirus program and try with the other versions.

If you have problem, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

My laptop(os windows xp) is infected with iiiiii.exe virus.


first thing to do is try to install and scan your pc with an antivirus program...if you have one already...update your antivirus program. restart your laptop and press F8 to enter safe mode, in safemode, start a full scan.

when finished, reboot back to normal mode then download CCleaner. Scan you laptop using CCleaner to remove the temp files and fix registry issues, you can also disable the startup programs that you do not need to start automatically in CCleaner.

In Addition, you could also install a antispyware program like Ad-Aware just to make sure.

Hope this helps.
