Re: hanging and restart problem

It sounds like ann overheating problem or a driver is corrupt, go to control panel>administrative tools>event viewer and look o the programmes and software menu to see if any red crosses or yellow exclamation marks are showing, if so right click on the line and select properties to give a clue as to the problem

Hello Ramkrishnasa,

You are getting this problem not because of ur pendrive as you said that Same problem is occuring even if you are playing audio or video files from HD.

The problem would be occuring because of:
1. missing of codec.sys files that enables ur system to play any video or Audio files.
2. Missing of ur system media *.dll file.
3. It can also be caused due to viruses.

You need not to worry about this thing. Follow the following steps to fixya problem:

1. It is recommended to restore ur system which will fix missing media system files or any error that leads ur system Hang.
2. To Restore ur System: Go to "Start"-> "All Programs" -> "Accessories" -> "System Tools" And then Click "System Restore".
3. You'll be able to see the wizard to restore ur system.
4. Now select the redio button to choose different restore point.
5. Select the restore point, you suspect that ur system was functioning well at that point. You can select different resotre point by scrolling the calender.
6. select the restore point and click Next to restore ur system.
7. System will restart automatically to restore ur sytem.

Windows XP sp 2 not installing

It is hard to suggest a simple solution. If the reinstallation of WinXP went smooth and problems are back again....the problem might be in the hardware. Suggestion-0. Download the latest drivers for your hardware and install them, after you install WinXP. Run an antivirus program that upto date do a complete system scan. I would recommend Trend Micro's PC-Cillin or Mc Afee antivirus. Suggestion-1. I suggest you to check your memory modules. I f you have two RAM modules: pick one out and start the system. Now if there is no problem. The RAM in your hand is faulty. Otherwise reinsert the RAM in your hand and pick the other one out. Now start the system. If it works well replace RAM in your hand. Suggestion-2. Seocnd thing is your hard disk. If you can take out and put your hard disk in a different system and reinstall windows if it fails to start. And see if the problem persists. If so, change your hard disk. Suggestion-3. Next thing is the motherboard. This is a tedious job, I do not encourrage to do this. carefully inspect the motherboard for leaking capacitors. If there is any take it for warranty service (if applicable) or you can ask some one to change the capacitors. Suggestion-4. Check the power supply module(SMPS) Make sure all connctions are intact and no loose connction exists. (This may be threat to the circuits). If you can arrange a spare SMPS, try connecting that. Suggestion-5. Check your power cables. If you have spare cables try changing that. Some cable are low quality and may get short & spark.

Pc problem

continual restarts are either a corrupt driver, but its a process of illimination as to which one so start your pc in safe mode (F8 on boot up)and select start windows in safe mode; as this will only load the graphics in VGA mode and not the main driver and if it all works ok without the graphics driver, suspect the graphics driver and uninstal it and download a newer version. The other bios problem may be the fact that your cmos battery (CR2032 disc shaped on the motherboard) may need changing if all your settings are wrong (eg date and time are always wrong)and you have to keep pressing F1 to continue to load windows.

My windows xp keep rebooting after shutdown

You should be able to change this setting in the PC bios menu. Windows XP should interact with this and change it automatically, but it occasionally doesn't. If you have trouble finding the appropriate menu and changing it, please post back with details of your PC (ideally motherboard make and model) and we can hopefully talk you through it. When the computer starts up, there should be a screen before the windows XP screen which says something like "press f8 to enter BIOS setup", but all machines are a little different. If you can get into the BIOS setup, only change things which you are sure you know what they will do, or you can cause all sorts of problems. Hope this helps, post back with system details if you need more :)
