Hi all, Im a novice to the computer world and my laptop lately has decided to really start playing up. The major issues seem to be it wont run some programs, it wont let me install programs, It wont let me run a system restore, In the taskbar the Internet Connection Icon isplaying up, and it isrunning really slow all of a sudden. Im running Windows Vista Basic service pack 1 32bit, It is a Presario CQ60-120TU, Intel 1.66Ghz, 2 Gig Ram, 150Gig HD. Now inmy search online I have tried the following steps. I have run SpyBot S&D and have also run Avira antivirus and both turned up nothing.
Any help would be greatly appreciated as this has only recently happened and its starting to really bug me

The charging problem could be a faulty charging circuit in the laptop or the laptop battery is worn out. Rechargeable have a finite number of charge cycles. The beeping noise is a power on self Test error message and the number of beeps indicates the error code. You need to take your laptop to a computer repair shop the assess the laptop's fault and when you get the quote then decide to get it repaired or put your money towards a new laptop. If you decide to get a new laptop you can salvage the hard disk from your old laptop and insert the hard drive into an USB hard drive case and use it as an external USB hard drive for data backups and file transfers.
1- Scanning computer to eliminate malwares, spywares and the viruses from your laptop.
2- Repairing and cleaning Windows registry.
These two tips are found to be very helpful to fix the laptop shutdown problem. Almost all the computer users surf internet which could result in viruses attacking your system. Some of these infections are really pesky and cause the machines to shutdown randomly.
The registry errors, however, are the internal errors and can become a cause of system crashes and freezes. The registry keys shall be in good health to keep a system perfect.
When I noticed my laptop keeps shutting down everytime, I tested the Intel Software Partner, RegInOut to fix the random shutdown problem with my laptop.
Hi and thank you for using fixya:
Laptop are very sensitive to heat. They do not contain enough space to put a big fan to cool off the processor. I recommend you buy the cooling docks they sell for about $20.00 with a fan on it. If your laptop has a AMD processor you are really going to need it AMD gets really hot.
sorry for the late reply. im using windows. im quite sure that there's no virus involved with the distortion of my sound. this is what happened.
1. im surfing the net while listening to music(full volume) 2.)then suddenly the sound gets a bit distorted(jumps,skips) 3.)then everything hangs up which forced me to reboot 4.)the windows loading screen became too long(like 5mins) before it takes me to the main desktop(start up programs loads like 48 years also). 5.)when i play music ,the sound is very much(like alien,"rrrrrrr")
i tried reinstalling the drivers but nothing was fixed. i've even tried Regcure.
i just formatted my notebook and voila its back to normal. i dunno but i think playing loud music using laptop, or in my case notebook speakers would cause this problem. im using external speakers now and i've got no problems. i just hope that there would be a fix to this problem so that i wont have to reformat if the problem occurs again
When you connext an external monitor to the laptop, power up the monitor then power up the laptop. The video infomation should automatically divert to the extermal monitor. You can toggle between the external monitor and the LCD screen by pressinf the blue Fn key + F7 key.
If you cannot get an image on the external monitor, then it is likely the video card is faulty and you can fix it by replacing the motherboard, but what is the point when the screen is broken also.
This still could be either if the cord is being moved at the same time. when the laptop is able to turn on, Does everything (programs, software, etc) function properly? If yes, then we can narrow it to the battery or ac adapter.
To find out whether it is the ac adapter or battery, take out the battery, and see if the laptop powers up and stay that way. If it intermittently closes or shuts down, it's most likely the ac adapter.
If it stays powered on, even if you move it, then it's most likely a battery issue.
If you want to be sure before spending some money, go to a friend's, neighbor's or computer store with a with the same manufacturer (dell, toshiba, etc), and borrow their ac adapter to check
the problem is not your hard drive, if you are using vista then there are compatbility issues with certain programmes, if yoou are using XP all you need to do is download the latest codecs, this also goes for vista, try not to use XP programmes with vista because you will run into problems
Definately not a "major issue"... it is a Software issue rather than a Hardware issue...
And most likely a conflict with your ActiveX controls...
Go to Start...Programs......Windows Update..enable if disabled.. and it will search for updates and hopefully install the SP1 update...
This update download apparently has patches for the exact error you have and that is a typical Vista "hiccup" error....
try that, if it doesnt help still, we can go from there..
