Question about Computers & Internet
I am using a Dell laptop computer which is hooked up via a docking staion to 2 flat screen monitors. The operating system is Windows XP service pack 3 The problem is that since late I cannot seem to arrange and lock my desk top icons in place. If I rearrange my desk top icons and then restart my computer they would all get moved back to the left of the screen in random order (not the way I want them to be). This is doing my head in as I have loads of icons on my desk top which I like to arrange in a manner that is easy to locate. Any help with this would highly appreciate. Thanks

I think the screen resolution of your monitor have been changed.
To restore them back, you can go to display properties, from control panel and change the resolution under the settings tab.
Your monitor settings can be made right from the buttons available from the outer panel if that is the problem.

Best answer is likely to uninstall and reinstall SP3. If it remains a problem, free support available from MS, as it is a Windows Update issue. Visit http://www.update.microsoft.com/microsoftupdate/v6/default.aspx?ln=en-us for more info. Thanks for rating FixYa!

Method 1: Use the "Add or Remove Programs" item in Control Panel
If you cannot remove Windows XP SP3 by using one of the previous methods, follow these steps:
Note Multiple options will appear on the screen.
Note You must select a number before you press ENTER, or the computer will restart. Typically, only the 1: C:\Windows selection is available.
Note You cannot continue if you do not have the administrator password.
Note The Spuninstal.txt file appears. As the file scrolls down, you will see errors and the files that are being copied. This is typical behavior.
Note After you restart the computer, the computer may stop responding, and you may see a black screen. The mouse will work. In this case, restart the computer again by turning the computer off and then back on. The second restart will let you log on.

nothing happens when you try to use the recovery console right by pressing "r".
try this again and again , sometimes it idles but its still running, if the error appears, restat again.
some corruptions maybe beyond our control and sometimes the only solution for this is to recover the inportant files you have on that HD and do a reformat...
