Hi,
You have easily operate your computer. The steps given below....

Materials Needed:
- CPU
- keyboard
- monitor
- mouse
- speakers
- printer
- Operating System Step 1 :- Prior to powering up the computer system, make sure that the power cord is firmly connected to the back panel of the CPU and is plugged into the wall socket. Step 2 :- Check if the video cable is firmly screwed to the port of the video card with the other end connected to the back panel of the monitor. Step 3 :- Make sure that both the keyboard and mouse pointing device are securely plugged to the back panel. Also, check if they are connected to the correct port by checking on the markings. Steps 1 to 3 are essentially easy to do because aside from the mouse and keyboard devices, other components can only be plugged into their proper ports preventing the novice user from interchanging them. Step 4 :- When all connections are secure, start up the machine by pressing the power button normally located in the front panel of the CPU. Step 5 :- Depending on the configuration of the machine, a username and password may be requested; otherwise, the Operating System may be loaded directly to display the desktop to the user. Step 6 :- Other basic operations that can be done include adjusting monitor settings in Step 8. Installation and launching of software is outlined in Step 10. Navigation of the file system is detailed from Step 15. Step 7 :- The proper way to shut down or turn off the computer system is by clicking on the “Start” button and choosing the “Turn Off Computer” option. This will display the options to “Standby”, “Restart”, or “Turn Off” the machine. Step 8 :- To adjust the monitor settings, right click on any blank portion of the desktop and select the “Properties” option from the context menu. Step 9 :- On the “Display Properties” window, select the “Settings” tab to adjust the resolution of the screen. The “Themes” tab will allow the loading of pre-designed Windows themes. The “Desktop” tab provides the way for changing the color of the desktop as well as the displayed wallpaper. The “Appearance” tab provides the various options of changing the behavior of the windows, icons, and other elements of the platform, while the “Screen Saver” tab shows the option to allow the monitor to go on standby or display animation. Step 10 :- To extend the functionality of any computer system, software is normally installed into the local hard drive. A software installer may be through some media like a CD or DVD or from being downloaded from the Internet. Step 11 :- For CD or DVD installers, insert the installation disk in the CD or DVD drive of the machine. This will be automatically read and launched by the Operating System. Step 12 :- When the installation process is initiated, a new window will normally be displayed to the user. Majority of newer installers provide either a default or an advanced installation procedure. In most cases, simply click on the default process to allow the installer to complete the entire process with minimum user intervention. Step 13 :- Upon completion of the installation process, a user may be prompted to reboot the machine. Follow the guide in Step 7 to accomplish this task. Step 14 :- To launch the software, simply click on the “Start” Menu, choose “All Programs” and select from the menu the program intended to be run. An alternative to this process is to check if a shortcut link is created on the Desktop. Clicking this icon will also launch the associated program Thanks

I am trying to setup SATA on Dell 360 optiplex because my pc keeps on booting?


Setting up a sata drive is not hard. shut down the power to the computer, make sure that power is off and make sure you disconnect the monitor cable from the back of the computer. Open the case up install the cable for your sata drive onto the sata1 connector plug in the power cord for it, and then mount the drive into an empty slot.
Hook everything back up turn on the power and go into the bios and make sur that the bios can see the drive. If it can then your sata should be setup and ready to use, however i don't think this will actually solve your problem.
You never said if the computer keeps booting before the operating system starts or if your computer reboots after the oprating starts. If this is happening after the operating starts, then chances are that this will not work.

I have a pc which is infacted. I cannot use anything. not even go to start. It is a windows xp oprating systme. I can get to it in safe mode. It is a compaq nx9030. restore dosenot seem to work on it


if you can get into safe mode, i would recommend you to save all your files (just Word Documents, Excel and so on) and completely format your computer from scratch.

Like .. insert the Windows CD.. and select Install Windows... Option, (you know, all the wizard process like copying , installing, settings... all that stuff)

thats the easiest way to get your computer working trouble free.

Apple power mac g5 desktop


there are so many reasons of why computers start slowly. they may be so due to
  • virus
  • missing system files
  • etc
if your system has no antivirus, you first install and scan the whole of it. and if this fails to work with your problem try to install the oprating system. but be ready loosing your important files.

if you can't manage all these, take your computer to the nearby service shop for more assistance.

good luck.
