    if you get your pc back up and running send me your email and I'll give you the link for a recovery program (software) that once installed and image made you can restore windows from boot start and only takes 5-6 mins to recover entire hd.

Hello,
My suggestion is do a system restore and then run a virus scan yo ensure there are no trogens hidden on the computer.

To Run System Restore on Windows XP:

Click start --> Help and Support

In the window that shows up under the Heading "Pick a task" click on "Undo changes to your computer with System Restore"

Now go through the restore process, make sure you restore to a date before the date this happened.

When the computer reboots test the spacebar and if it works run a virus scan if you dont have an anti-virus program you can download one here: http://free.avg.com/
or you can get an online scan done at: http://housecall65.trendmicro.com/
the online scan does not work on Vista.

I hope this works, please let me know if you need further assistance

Have a great day

I have a asus eeepc, that display is broken then i change same type display but it will not working properly means a blue screen error message is coming when it on


If the replacement screen is not the exact model for your laptop, it will not work properly. "Same" may only be similar and not "exactly the same". If it is exact, then check to be sure all of the cables are properly connected. Also check that all of the other cables in the laptop are still connected. Perhaps one was knocked loose during the screen replacement.

Problem with spacebar key


I don't quite understand why this would happen after pluggin in a USB mouse - but I've seen it numerous times after a liquid has been spilled on a keyboard.

Sounds like you need to replace the keyboard. Best way to test this is to plug in an external usb keyboard and see if you can type normally on it.

If the laptop keyboard exhibits this behavior, and the external keyboard doesn't - you should replace the laptop keyboard.

What is the the default CMOS/BIOS settings for HP 520 Laptop


Go into bios and select factory default, it will ask if you want to save the settings enter yes, when you exit the screen press F10 to exit and save all changes, on your laptop the key choice may be different so look at the bottom and double check. This should fix your problem, you may need to reload windows again.

I have recently replaced the hard disk in my evo n610c compaq laptop. I have a windows xp cd. But when I turn it on I just get the 'non system disk or disk error' message. I have changed bios...


When you first start the system ensure you have the windows XP CD in the optical drive before you try to boot. Once you see the Compaq screen press F12 (or if the system has a different prompt choose it) to get the one time boot menu, select the optical drive with the arrow keys, press enter, the system should give you a 5 second prompt to boot to the XP CD, press the spacebar to boot. This should bring up the windows XP setup, choose NTFS quick for the file system and then for any other prompt the default setting and windows should install

Can't/use/my/spacebar/ don/'t/have/recovery/cds/for/satellite/135/using/vista


Hi,
I'm afraid that your recovery CD's won't help you get the space bar working.
There could well be dust, biscuit crumbs, hairs etc that's preventing the spacebar from working, turn the laptop off but don't close the lid, stand the laptop on it's side and get yourself a clean, dry paintbrush.
Start to brush the keys and gently tap the keyboard with the other end of the brush to knock out any foreign objects that could be trapped under the spacebar.
Once your happy it's clean turn the laptop on and see if the spacebar works.
If you still have the same symptoms then the keyboard will have to be replaced.
You can use the on-screen keyboard to substitute for the spacebar for the time being.



Good luck.
