Starting up Computer error sounds

When I restart my computer, I hear windows beeps, then when I right click on the programs in my task bar to close them I hear the windows error sounds on each one I click on to close. Then when I open up windows the beeping begins and at the same time it seems someone is pressing +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ and if I close the window it will stop. This only happens when I boot up the pc. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

    Hi,

    Well I did switch the keyboard and it is still happening. The typing by itself is not that bad. The sounds have me more concerned cuz they are windows error sounds.

    Thanks though... tc

    two things to check first. 1) open up word or something similar and press on each on of your keys and make sure one is not stuck

    2) run a scan with your virus checker then let me know if those worked out ok...

Go into notepad and see if something is typing on the screen in there. If so then your keyboard is bad and will need to be replaced. If not then I would replace it anyway just to see if it still happens. Cause this +++++++++++++++++++++++ shouldn't be happening by itself regardless.

1. The Mouse o There are two examples of a computer freezing up. One is when a single program on the computer is frozen, while the other is when the entire system freezes up. To determine which type of problem a computer is experiencing, attempt to move the mouse on the screen. If the mouse pointer is visible and moves, the issue is with a single program. To determine which program is frozen, bring up the Windows Task Manager. This can be done by right clicking a blank area of the taskbar and selecting "Task Manager," or by pressing the keyboard shortcut "Ctrl+Alt+Delete" and selecting "Task Manager". The program or programs that are frozen will show as "Not Responding" on the Applications tab of the Task Manager. Click the frozen program and click "End Task" to close it. Visit the program's website for specific troubleshooting tips if the program continues to freeze. If the mouse pointer is stationary on the computer screen, the entire system is frozen.
Unfreezing a Frozen Computer o If the entire system freezes up, it will need to be rebooted. To do so, hold down the "Ctrl" and "Alt" keys. While holding both keys down, press the "Delete" key twice. This should shut down the system and automatically restart it. If the computer does not respond, try the keyboard shortcut once more. If it remains frozen and does not reboot, you will need to perform a hard shut down. This simply means pressing and holding down the power button until the computer completely shuts down. Once it has shut down, leave it off for a few minutes and then turn the power on once more.
Continuous Freezing o A frozen computer might be a one-time occurrence, or it could be the sign of a more serious problem. If the computer continues to freeze up, there are several items that should be checked out. The first step to take is looking at any recently installed software. Programs such as freeware or shareware often contain malware that can damage the system. Even reputable software can contain a damaged file. Uninstall recently added programs and determine if that was the cause of the computer freezing up. To uninstall a program, go to the Control Panel from the Start Menu. Select "Add/Remove Programs" in Windows XP or earlier, or "Programs and Features" in Windows Vista. In the list of installed programs, select the one to be removed and click "Uninstall." Follow any prompts and restart the computer when the process is complete. Next, update and run both the antivirus program and spyware removal program installed on the computer, or use the link provided in resources. Check the Windows website and download any updates.
System Tools Finally, you will want to check the available space on the computer's hard drive and use the built-in error checking and cleaning tools. Go to "My Computer," right click "Local Disk (C:)" and click "Properties." On the "General" tab, make sure there is sufficient free space. The "Disk Cleanup" tool will free more space by deleting unnecessary files. Click the "Disk Cleanup" button to run the tool. On the "Tools" tab there are more tools that can solve the problems causing a computer to freeze up. The Error Checking Tool finds and corrects hard disk errors and the Defragmentation tool will reorganize system files, helping the computer run better.

see this instruction and proceed according. God bless you

To partially clear computer RAM memory, close some programs that are currently running. In Windows, right-click on any program in the task bar and choose the "Close" option. That will free up the memory that was used by the program. Even if you close every program running on the task bar, a big chunk of memory is taken up by the operating system. The RAM used by the operating system cannot be cleared without shutting down the system.


  • 2 To clear computer RAM memory totally, you have to shut down the system. In Windows, click on the Start Menu and click the "Shut Down" option. Unix and Linux have similar options. When this process is complete, all RAM will be cleared.

  • 3
    If you are somewhat impatient, turn off the computer by pressing the power button on the computer. This is slightly quicker than the previous step.

  • 4
    If you are very impatient, unplug the power cord of the computer. If it is a laptop, disconnect the battery as well. The computer's RAM memory will be cleared immediately upon the power source being disconnected. This method of shutting down the computer usually causes corruption or some other problem when the operating system is booted up again.

    Help me to uninstalled think point


    ONE WAY USE WINDOWS DISK TO RESTORE ALL SYSTEM FILES.

    OR TRY USING THESE STEPS:-

    1. Restart your computer. Once the ThinkPoint window comes press Ctrl+Alt+Delete or Ctrl+Shift+Escape. You should now see the Windows Task Manager screen as shown in the image below or a screen where you can select the Task Manager to be run.

    taskmgr_hotfix-exe.jpg

    Click on the Processes tab. Then click and highlight hotfix.exe and click End Task. If it asks you "Are you sure you want to terminate the process?" click yes (or press Enter). This will close the ThinkPoint program.

    2. While in Windows Task Manager, click the File -> "New Task (Run...)" from the menu on the bottom right. Type in explorer.exe and click OK. Your desktop and icons should start up as normal.

    new_task_explorer.jpg

    NOTE: if you got an error message "Windows cannot access the specified device, path or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access them", then please run this command first:

    cacls "C:\Windows\explorer.exe" /G Everyone:F

    calcs_explorer.jpg

    A new windows will come up asking "Are you sure?" Type Y and press enter.

    calcs.jpg

    Now run explorer.exe again.

    3. Download the following file to your Desktop: windows-shell.reg. Double-click to run it. Click "Yes" when it asks if you want to add the information to the registry. This file will fix the Windows Shell entry. This step is important because if you won't fix this entry, then your Windows Desktop will not be displayed the next time you reboot. Once the new registry value has been added, you can delete the file from your computer.



    AFTER ALL, USE A GOOD ANTIVIRUS AND TRY TO CLEAN YOUR SYSTEM WITH IT.

    My start menu button and task bar is missing what shall i do :(


    Don't worry you can solve it very easily.
    Please just follow the below steps and you will fix it.

    1 . If you are moving your mouse cursor all the way down (or wherever you have placed your task bar by default), but it won't show up, try pressing the Window key, typically found between the CTRL and the Alt keys. You can also press CTRL+Esc and achieve the same result. If your Start menu pops up after performing either action, this is your chance to manually re size your Windows task bar, as you had probably minimized it by accident.

    2 . In case the above step does not fix the issue, try launching the Task Manager by pressing CTRL+Alt+DEL. In the window that pops up, go to the File menu, click on New Task, and type "Explorer" or "Explorer.exe", without the quotes. This action will basically restart the main shell that allows you to see your desktop icons, launch the task bar and initiate most of the visualizations you see on your Operating System. If this does not do the job, let's move onto step three.

    3 . Try simply restarting the computer, as this may be as well caused by an old, sluggish system begging to be restarted for various reasons.

    4 . Now, if none of the above have worked, you may be forced to run an anti virus and spy ware application. It is recommended that you launch these programs from Safe Mode by simply pressing the F8 key while your computer is booting up (right before the Windows logo shows up on the screen). Some viruses and spyware are known to alter your system in strange ways, so cleaning it may be an appropriate solution, as you have nothing to lose by trying.

    5 . If all else fails, you may have to resort to repairing Windows through your Windows disc. During this repair, all of your data/documents will be left intact, while Windows attempts to fix any system error or damage found.

    Thanks .

    Hello,

    You cannot delete the icon from the task bar as it only displays the start up programs running on the computer. I have given the steps below.

    You will see the list of startup programs. Uncheck the ones related to the Simple center Media.
    Click Aply, Than click close, than click Restart computer now.

    The program will not load automatically and you would not see the icon in the taskbar.

    I am sure this will help. Please update me on the same.
