    Hi,

    If you could give the manufacturer and model number for the computer it would be helpful. Secondly , if you tell if its a desktop or a laptop.



    You can try soft resetting the motherboard.

    1. Disconnect on cables from the back of the system tower (if its a desktop)

    or Disconnect Ac power adapter and remover battery(if its a laptop)

    2. Press and hold the power button for 10 seconds

    3. Reconnect the monitor cable, keyboard cable back to the tower(if its a desktop)

    reconnect only the ac adapter if its a portable

    4. Power on the system and check if you have the same error



    Thanks

This is a feature of the BIOS.

You need to enter the BIOS setup screens to fix. When you boot the computer, watch for the message "Hit Delete to run setup" or something similar. When you are able to get into the BIOS screens look for and advanced tab, then look for the DMI feature. You should be able to delete the contents of the log from there.

Good luck

How to stop Windows 10 from automatically restarting after idle for around 5-15 minutes.


The kernel power event ID 41 error occurs when the computer is shut down, or it restarts unexpectedly. When a computer that is running Windows starts, a check is performed to determine whether the computer was shut down cleanly. If the computer was not shut down cleanly, a Kernel Power Event 41 message is generated.
Before we proceed with the troubleshooting steps, please answer the questions given below.
a)Do you remember making any changes prior to this issue?
b)Did you check if all the drivers are up to date?
Let us follow the methods given below.
Method 1: Run System maintenance troubleshooter.
Follow these steps:
a) Press Windows key + W on the keyboard
b) Type Troubleshooter then click on Settings under the Search field
c) In Settings click on Find and Fix Problems
d) Click on System and security
e) Click System maintenance follow the prompts from there.
Method 2: Try booting the computer in safe mode and perform a clean boot.
Step 1: Perform Safe Mode
Click the link and follow the steps "Windows Startup Settings (including safe mode)"
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-8/windows-startup-settings-including-safe-mode
Check if you face the same issue in safe mode. If the issue doesn't persists in safe mode, the place the computer in clean boot and check.
Step 2: Perform Clean Boot.
To help troubleshoot error messages and other issues, you can start Windows 8 by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs. This kind of startup is known as a "clean boot." A clean boot helps eliminate software conflicts.
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929135
Important: Reset the computer to start as usual.
Note: After you have finished troubleshooting, follow these steps to boot to normal startup.
a) Press the 'Windows + R' key on the keyboard.
b) In the 'Run' windows type 'MSCONFIG' and click 'Ok'.
c) On the 'General' tab, click the 'Normal Startup' option, and then click 'OK'.
d) When you are prompted to restart the computer, click 'Restart'.
If the issue persists, I would suggest you to perform a system restore and check if it helps.
Method 3: Perform a system restore.
Refer to the link given below and follow the instructions for system restore.
How to restore, refresh, or reset your PC

Error message 1324. The path My Pictures contains an invalid character. Version 2.5.2.36 Can I remove? Can I update so my Quickbooks program can update? Need help please!


There are 3 possible reasons why you are getting this error message:

1. An invalid character in QuickBooks installation path.
2. An incorrect path setting in the Windows registry.
3.Insufficient hard drive space available to install the QuickBooks program.

To fix this problem, please do the following:
  1. Restart your computer, and reinstall QuickBooks.
  2. Confirm that at least 2.5 GB of disk space is available for installing QuickBooks (Quickbooks 2010 requires 1.5GB of disk space):
    1. Double-click the Computer (for Windows 7 or Vista) or My Computer (for Windows XP) icon on your Windows desktop.
    2. Note the amount of free space shown in the window next to the drive letter where QuickBooks is being installed:
      • If the amount of free space is less than 1 GB, free up disk space before installing QuickBooks or install QuickBooks on a different drive.
      • If the amount of free space is greater than 1 GB, proceed with step 2.
  3. Remove invalid characters from the QuickBooks installation path:
    1. Right-click the Windows Start button and select Explore.
    2. Navigate to the path shown in the error:
      • If there are non-alphanumeric characters in the name of any folder in the installation path, right-click the folder and select Rename to remove them, and then reinstall QuickBooks.
      • If there are only alphanumeric characters in the installation path, proceed with step 3.
  4. Create a new user in Windows to rewrite any Windows registry settings that may be causing the error and log in as that user to install QuickBooks.
Note: You must be logged in as a Windows administrator or as a member of the Administrator group to add a new user.
If this solution does not resolve the issue, you can read discussions and post messages and questions relating to your issue on the Intuit QuickBooks Community site for free, or you can contact a technical support agent for additional guidance. Fees may apply.

When you turn on your computer press F8 for the startup options and choose Safe Mode. When the computer enters Safe Mode run another system scan and then restart.

My computer displays error messages such as " Verifying DMI pool data, Boot from CD" upon startup


It's not necassarily an error when that pops up. It usually depends on the Motherboard. I know that Biostar P4M80-M7A / P4M800-M7A all do that on their own but will boot just fine after that message goes away. It's offering you an option to boot from a cd. You can change it to silent boot in BIOS if you don't want that message to appear.

Can't system restore


Hello

Ok, if you get a message your computer cannot be restored to this
date, the restore foldr is damaged.

There is actually something you can try, but i would suggest that you backup all the files you want to keep and the drivers you need and format your computer.

Method 1: Make sure that the System Restore service is running loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); To do this, use one of the following methods:
  • Look in Control Panel. To do this, follow these steps:
    1. Click Start, click Run, and then type compmgmt.msc in the Open box, and then press Enter.
    2. Expand Services, and then click System Restore Services..

      If the Status of System Restore Service is not Started, click Start on the toolbar to start it.
  • Open a Command Prompt window. To do this, follow these steps:
    1. Click Start, click Run, type CMD in the Open box, and then press Enter.
    2. Type Net Start at the command prompt to make sure that the System Restore Service is up and is running.

      If the System Restore Service is not listed, type net start "System Restore Service", and then press Enter.
uparrow.gifBack to the top Method 2: Make sure that System Restore is enabled on the drives where you want System Restore enabled loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); To do this follow these steps:
  1. Click Start, right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
  2. Click the System Restore tab.
  3. If the System Restore is enabled, the Status column of a drive will show Monitoring.
    If not, you can clear to clear the Turn off System Restore on all drives, and then click OK to enable it.
uparrow.gifBack to the top Method 3: Make sure that you have sufficient disk space on all the drives where System Restore is enabled loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); To do this, follow these steps:
  1. To check for free disk space, click Start, click Run, type diskmgmt.msc and then press Enter. Look at each drive System Restore is monitoring for free space.
  2. If the free space on any partition system restore is monitoring falls lower than 50 MB, System Restore will suspend and remove all restore points to free disk space. You should have already received a low free disk space message by now. System Restore will resume monitoring when free disk space reaches 200 MB.

    Note In most cases you do not have to have System Restore monitor Partitions/drives other than the one Windows is installed on. System Restore does not monitor data files.
uparrow.gifBack to the top Method 4: View the event logs to investigate System Restore service errors loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Click Start, click Run, type eventvwr.msc /s in the Open box, and then press Enter.
  2. Click the System category.
  3. Click the Source tab to sort by name, and then look for "sr" or "srservice." Double-click each of these services, and then evaluate the event description for any indication of the cause of the problem.
uparrow.gifBack to the top Method 5: Boot in safe mode and run the System Restore tool loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); To boot in safe mode follow these steps:
  1. Restart the computer. Immediately after the screen goes blank for the first time, or after the BIOS post ends, start taping the F8 key repeatedly. The Windows Advanced Options menu appears.

    If the menu does not appear, restart the computer and try again.
  2. Select Safe Mode, and then press ENTER. As files load they will scroll down the screen.

    Note Safe mode uses a minimal set of device drivers and services to start Windows. The default Microsoft VGA driver is used for display at 640 X480 resolution and in 16 colors.
  3. Log on to the Administrator account. If a password was never set, leave the password blank and press ENTER or click the green arrow.
  4. Click No in the safe mode information screen to start System Restore.
  5. Select Restore my computer to an earlier time, and then click Next to proceed to select a date with restore points available.
  6. Click Next to begin restoring the system to a previous state.
This comes from Microsoft's site under advanced system restore propperties, so if this does not work, then formatting the pc is the only sollution. Hope this can help you.

Kind regards
Andrea

Blue Screen on Windows XP


Sometimes there are conflicts that cause errors to show up, I am glad you mentioned that no new hardware or software have been installed. That helps to rule out some things. At this juncture, if it only occurred once, reboot and don't worry. If you see it again, it will most likely tell you a error occurred at such and such a place and the computer will now shut down. If this happens try to write down the offending part or error and contact us again. However, it is always prudent to backup your computer. You can go in to the setup and look in you event log to see if it was a heat event that will cause your computer to shut down. Should this screen appears again, try the following:
Check to be sure you have adequate disk space. If a driver is identified in the Stop message, disable the driver or check with the manufacturer for driver updates. Pay attention to the video adapters.
Check for any BIOS updates. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use Safe Mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select Advanced Start up Options, and then select Safe Mode.
