Try booting your computer into last known good configuration, by tapping steadily on the F8 key during boot up, until a screen with menu options appears. If you get windows to open, go to Start, Run, Type cmd, and at the command prompt type chkdsk c: /f
Make sure the spaces are there. You may have to reboot your system, but this will check the integrity of the files on your root drive c:, and fix any problems found. It might take an hour to run, let it.
For more information click here or here
I think that would be a good start.
Try this and report back with the results, please..



I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

With WIN XP this is usually because the program you just closed (if you did close it) takes a little while to do "back-up" to retain the settings for XP. when you want to shut-down windows, give the prog's you were working in about 3 mins to close. good luck!

test this steps and fix it. God bless you
1. The Mouse o There are two examples of a computer freezing up. One is when a single program on the computer is frozen, while the other is when the entire system freezes up. To determine which type of problem a computer is experiencing, attempt to move the mouse on the screen. If the mouse pointer is visible and moves, the issue is with a single program. To determine which program is frozen, bring up the Windows Task Manager. This can be done by right clicking a blank area of the taskbar and selecting "Task Manager," or by pressing the keyboard shortcut "Ctrl+Alt+Delete" and selecting "Task Manager". The program or programs that are frozen will show as "Not Responding" on the Applications tab of the Task Manager. Click the frozen program and click "End Task" to close it. Visit the program's website for specific troubleshooting tips if the program continues to freeze. If the mouse pointer is stationary on the computer screen, the entire system is frozen.
Unfreezing a Frozen Computer o If the entire system freezes up, it will need to be rebooted. To do so, hold down the "Ctrl" and "Alt" keys. While holding both keys down, press the "Delete" key twice. This should shut down the system and automatically restart it. If the computer does not respond, try the keyboard shortcut once more. If it remains frozen and does not reboot, you will need to perform a hard shut down. This simply means pressing and holding down the power button until the computer completely shuts down. Once it has shut down, leave it off for a few minutes and then turn the power on once more.
Continuous Freezing o A frozen computer might be a one-time occurrence, or it could be the sign of a more serious problem. If the computer continues to freeze up, there are several items that should be checked out. The first step to take is looking at any recently installed software. Programs such as freeware or shareware often contain malware that can damage the system. Even reputable software can contain a damaged file. Uninstall recently added programs and determine if that was the cause of the computer freezing up. To uninstall a program, go to the Control Panel from the Start Menu. Select "Add/Remove Programs" in Windows XP or earlier, or "Programs and Features" in Windows Vista. In the list of installed programs, select the one to be removed and click "Uninstall." Follow any prompts and restart the computer when the process is complete. Next, update and run both the antivirus program and spyware removal program installed on the computer, or use the link provided in resources. Check the Windows website and download any updates.
System Tools Finally, you will want to check the available space on the computer's hard drive and use the built-in error checking and cleaning tools. Go to "My Computer," right click "Local Disk (C:)" and click "Properties." On the "General" tab, make sure there is sufficient free space. The "Disk Cleanup" tool will free more space by deleting unnecessary files. Click the "Disk Cleanup" button to run the tool. On the "Tools" tab there are more tools that can solve the problems causing a computer to freeze up. The Error Checking Tool finds and corrects hard disk errors and the Defragmentation tool will reorganize system files, helping the computer run better.

Hp dx2200 computer won't power off


If your HP computer refuses to power down, this means that there are still programs open that Windows can't close. Normally when you select the "Shut Down" button from your "Start" menu, Windows closes all open programs, then closes itself, and your basic input/output system (BIOS) turns off all of your hardware. If Windows can't close all open programs, your computer won't be able to power off. This means that you must close these programs yourself.

Right-click on the window of an open program on your Windows taskbar (Bottom of Screen) Click "Close Window." Windows manually closes the program. If a window appears on-screen indicating that Windows cannot get the program to close, click the "Force Close" button in this window to have Windows force the program to shut down. Repeat "Step 1" for any additional programs that are open on your computer. Click "Start." Click "Shut Down." Hope this helps.

I have a hp a288n desktop. It quit responding as it has done previously and it wouldn't turn off, so I turned it off by the power button. When I went to turn it back on it would not start. I have unplugged...


I've attached the steps needed to be taken if your computer does not turn off.
If you pc is turned off and you can't turn it on now, please provide me more informations like;
  • what is the color of your screen
  • what written on your screen
  • Can you see cursor blinking or arrow
  • Any error message displayed?
  • The HP or Compaq Logo Screens are Missing on Startup
  • When the pc stops responding, before or after Windows start up?
Steps below is to show you how to resolve the issue of the pc not shutting down.

Step 1: Using one anti-virus program
You only need one anti-virus program. If more than one anti-virus program is open at the same time, uninstall the extra software programs. Several virus scanning software on the same PC can create software conflicts. This is also true for multiple versions of the same anti-virus software. For example, if Norton Antivirus version five and Norton Antivirus version 2002 are both installed on the same PC, uninstall the older version (version 5 in this case). Use the following steps to remove programs:
  • In Windows XP, click Start , then Control Panel.
  • In Windows 95, 98, and Me, click Start , Settings , then Control Panel
  • Double-click Add/Remove Programs
  • Select the anti-virus software that you want to remove and click the Add/Remove button, or the Change/Remove button in Windows XP.
  • Restart the PC when the uninstaller has finished.
  • When the Windows desktop appears, restart the PC again. The PC should shut down and restart normally this time. If not, continue to the next step.
Step 2: Disabling Software that opens with Windows
For troubleshooting purposes, reduce the amount of software that opens with Windows to try and find out if a software conflict is occurring.

  • Open the Microsoft System Configuration software (Msconfig), remove the selection next to Load Startup Items , click OK , and restart the PC.
  • For more information, refer to Preventing Programs from Opening When Windows Starts .
    Restart the PC using Windows.
  • If the Windows still fails to close, continue to next step.

Step 3: Turning off all power options
Turn off all Windows power management options and shut down the PC as follows.

  • In Windows XP, click Start , Control Panel , and then Performance and Maintenance.
  • In Windows 95, 98, and Me, click Start , Settings , and then Control Panel .
  • Double-click the Power Options icon.
  • The Power Options Properties window appears.
  • Click the Power Schemes tab and change all selections under Settings for Always On power scheme to Never .
  • Click the Hibernate tab and remove the check mark from Enable hibernate support .
  • Click the OK button to accept the changes, and then restart the PC.
  • When the Windows desktop appears, restart the PC again. The PC should shut down and restart normally this time. Regardless, continue to the next Step to see if a BIOS update is available.
Step 4: Upgrading the BIOS
The BIOS is code that the PC uses at start up and is responsible for many things. One of those things is power management, which can get in the way of the shutdown process.

Please rate my solution.

HELP!!! Computer stopped working when anit-virus was installed?????


Assuming you are using windows xp. 1. Boot up into windows safe mode by pressing the "F8" key during boot process. 2. Choose "Safe Mode without networking" on the menu and after entering your desktop a pop-up will appear telling you that you are using windows safe mode, just press "OK" then uninstall Norton Anti-Virus. 3. Shut-down and/or reboot computer. Another alternative would be to boot into safe mode and perform a system restore. If you choose to do this, you still need to uninstall Norton Anti-Virus because a system restore will only fix just system files not programs that were installed. In other words, you will have a partial installation of Norton Anti-Virus in your computer. As to why this happened, could be a compatability issue with the use of Norton and some other program. Good luck.
