My N100 notebook is very slow in process


if it is a windows computer, try running defragmenter and disk cleanup.
to run defragmenter, in the search box in the start menu (in vista and windows 7) and search "defragmenter" select the c drive, and defragment it.. while you're at it, set up a weekly defragment with the defragmenter schedule.
To run disk cleanup, search for "disk cleanup" in the same search box. select the c drive, and check all the things you want to clean up.
you can always just do a scan with your antivirus to check if theres a virus slowing your system down.

What is the solution to "Exception EOleSysError module at 00058E75."


Try this:

Run a CheckDisk:
How to run Chkdsk at the command prompt

(Windows XP)
  1. Click Start, and then click Run.
  2. In Open, type cmd, and then press ENTER.
  3. Use one of the following procedures:
    • To run Chkdsk in read-only mode, at the command prompt, type chkdsk, and then press ENTER.
    • To repair errors without scanning the volume for bad sectors, at the command prompt, type chkdsk volume:/f, and then press ENTER.

      Note If one or more of the files on the hard disk are open, you will receive the following message: Chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another process. Would you like to schedule this volume to be checked the next time the system restarts? (Y/N)Type Y, and then press ENTER to schedule the disk check, and then restart your computer to start the disk check.
    • To repair errors, locate bad sectors, and recover readable information, at the command prompt, type chkdsk volume:/r, and then press ENTER.

      Note If one or more of the files on the hard disk are open, you will receive the following message: Chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another process. Would you like to schedule this volume to be checked the next time the system restarts? (Y/N)Type Y, and then press ENTER to schedule the disk check, and then restart your computer to start the disk check.

      Windows Vista & Windows 7
      You can launch CHKDSK using two methods (the former being the easiest):

      Graphical Interface:

      Open the Computer option from the start menu, which will display all of the drives available to scan on your PC:

      108d1237820652-use-chkdsk-check-disk-chkdsk.png
      Then, right click on the drive you wish to scan for errors and select Properties:

      107d1237820652-use-chkdsk-check-disk-chkdsk2.png
      Now click the Tools menu, then Check Now under the error-checking section:

      106d1237820652-use-chkdsk-check-disk-chkdsk3.png
      You have several options within the check disk tool. It is always recommended you leave the "automatically fix file system errors" box checked, as this repairs and problems found. If you want to perform a deeper scan, tick "scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors". This second option takes longer, but is worth doing if you suspect a drive problem. Once you are configured, click Start:

      105d1237820652-use-chkdsk-check-disk-chkdsk4.png
      If you try to check a disk that is currently in use, you will receive a message asking if you wish to schedule a scan. Accepting this will perform the scan next time you restart your PC:

      Good Luck!

"We found an inconsistency in


First thing to try is starting the computer in safe mode. Once you have it up and running, do a system restore back to when it was working.
This could very well solve your problem. If not, repost your question telling us what you have tried.

this sounds like a hardware issue, i suspect the harddrive. Try formating it and running diagnostics form a hDD external enclosure. Run a full scan disk and then format it form there before initializing it and back to the laptop for full installation of Vista

Hi, My laptop taking so much time to switch on and it became very slow. Please tell me the soluiton for it.


Sometimes slow booting of computers and Laptops are caused by viruses and spywares. Also, a High temperatured Processor makes a computer slow.
Here are some solutions you might want to try.
  1. If you have a installed antivirus in your computer, i suggest you update your Antivirus and then Start scanning your computer for possible viruses and spywares.
  2. If viruses and Spywares are not the problem, maybe your Processor is feeling to much heat. I suggest you use Laptop Coolers like this one. heifentrixx_11.jpg
  3. This will help you cool down you Processor and Laptop.
Hope my solution will help. Thanks for using Fixya!

I bought a P500-OTE laptop on Dec 23 2010. Two days ago in start up it goes into a disk check, and every time after.Can you tell me what is wrong ?


They usually go into disk check mode when they have not been closed down correctly, or there is a disk error.
When the laptop has settled down and loaded, click start and type DSKCHK/F in the search box then run disk check with the /F for fix. That should fix all of your errors.
Hope that helps.

Down loaded msn explorer 8 pc will not start up TMGR missing


The "TMGR" is a Windows Operating System component file.
This error might occur if the TMGR file is corrupted or missing.
However, as this is a Operating System Component file, you may resolve the issue by performing the below steps.
First, you may try performing the SFC Scan.
Performing the SFC Scan will automatically fix any damaged files or any errors in the Registry.
Steps to initiate the SFC Scan:
1) Open the RUN command window.
2) In the RUN command window, type "cmd" and press Enter.
3) In the Command prompt, type cd
4) Then. type cd Windows and press Enter.
5) Then type sfc /scannow and press Enter.
6) This will start the SFC Scan process.
The Computer might also ask for the Windows Operating System Disc.
Peforming the SFC Scan should resolve the issue with the TMGR file.
If the issue still persists, initiate the Disc checking process.
