Obviously, you want to save files from the computer; any files transferred to another system could infect that system.

If you really need those files I would recommend downloading an Ubuntu ISO and burning it to a CD. This gives you to boot to an operating system from a Compact Disc.

http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/download

Ubuntu Linux has the ability to browse the Windows hard drive, if needed, transfer the files off the partition. You can burn the files from Ubuntu, if you have two Disc Drives, move the files on to a Flash Drive, or you can transfer them across your home network. Beware, this can spread the damage to other systems that do not have active virus protection.
Seriously, you need Norton, McAfee, or AVG Free at the least; these programs can intercept virus like activity as it happens in the memory. Furthermore, a script blocker like Noscript, Ad-aware, or MS Windows Defender can help prevent Spyware/Trojans/Variants from installing when you browse a untrusted site.

Once you have backed up the files you want to save you'll need to use your system recovery disc to format the hard drive and reinstall the operating system on your laptop.

MSI U100 FUNCTION KEY COMMANDS NOT SHOWING ON SCREEN ANYMORE


That is quite common and can be windows updates or spurious downloads that corrupt the system files. Restoring the complete system will bring it back but it may be something to do with either the system drivers or keyboard driver. Try downloading fresh drivers from msi.

If you can boot into safe mode try, system restore. You can even load window on top of it's self (repairing).

Error opening operating system


First try to use your operating system disk to repair the problem using operating system repair option.

If this does not work and you expirence the same problems you could try restoring your Operating System but first back up any files you would like to keep.

At any rate back up your files now! In case your hard drive is failing.

To do this get an external enclosure for your drive and load it up on another windows based PC then back up your files. If you have no important data then try a clean install of your windows version. it may take several drivers and updates not to mention hours but it will be done.

If it is your hard drive failing you should receive a message indicating this otherwise it could just be corrupt system files or improper installation or deletion of materials that are required for the OS to function.

If it is not this it could be something like your main board video chipset possibly overheating in which case you can try and have it repaired or buy a used working motherboard for your laptop and replace it with some patience and some hours and a little bit of cash you could have it back in working order.

Windows internet explorer not working


Hello,

was explorer working perfectly on your computer previously? If yes, you can try system restore.

System restore can help to back date your computer to the time when explorer was working.

Start > All programs > Accessories > System tools > System restore.

Read and follow instructions. System will restart during the restore process.....

After that try again and observe if explorer will function/work properly/normally.

Please let me know if this doesn't solve your problem so that I can help you further.

Regards.

My dell vostro 2510 won't power on, when i press power button to turn on the pc , the power light turn on for about 5 sec then it turn off itself,


Try this to see if can give us some codes with it's on board diagnostics. Hold down the function button of your laptop and then the power button while still holding down the Fn/Function button on the left side of the keyboard. See if this gives you either an error message on your screen or, flashing lights above your keyboard. Pay attention, write down what lights where lit up what ones flashed, etc. This is to diagnose if the LCD isn't working. Comment back if you get either the light code or the error code on the screen. IF nothing happens try holding the Fn/Function button on the left side of keyboard and holding the F4 button, see if that makes any lights flash above your keyboard.

Unable to boot Windows Vista Dell Inspiron 1545 I have tried starting it in safe mode, I tried doing the startup repair, I've done the boot from Utilities & Drivers CD that came with the computer...


Well if your problem is to back up your files, you already said that you can get into safe mode, you can attach an external hard drive or flash drive to copy your files from local drive. Remember to activate your OS system restore if your able to succesfully restore your system with your CD. You can change that settings on properties of "my computer".

I frequently play the game pes 11.So I think for that the forward and left button under enter and shift isn`t working.What can i do now?


Hello Alim emblazo, try checking the settings of the game in: C:\Program Files\KONAMI\Pro Evolution Soccer 2011, you will see the settings icon there click controller to see if you assign a control to those keys if you did and its still dows not function use a different program like MS word and use those keys to be sure your keyboard does not have a problem, if it still does not function i am afraid you have to change your keyboard but if i does function that means you have to focus more on the settings of your game. hope this helps incase it doesnt let me know. good luck hope you win the WORLD CUP

System not functioning in my laptop?


If you didnt backup your files and you need to reinstall your operating system (or run a system recovery), you have a hard choice to make...delete the files while recovering, or try to treat the infection and save your data. A good technician can save your files and fix the machine. Do you have a hard drive enclosure and a second computer to connect it to? If you do, then theres hope. Otherwise, make that painful choice.

Boot problem


This being the case use the system restore CD and restore from it. When the laptop boots off the CD try using the repair function and run chkdisk /r this will cleanup the system files and restore missing or damaged files. If this does not fix the problem you will need to use the same disk and restore the operating system.
