SOURCE: my pc restarting at the xp icon again and again

Hi nadeem_1085,

It sounds like you have some or the files used to start up your computer are corrupted.

The following procedure is not for beginners. If you are unsure about your ability to complete this task then bring it to a professional who can.

You are going to need your Windows CD to attempt this procedure.

First insert the windows XP or Vista Disk. Start up the computer. The computer should ask if you want to boot from the CD/DVD.

*Skip to the next paragraph if it says boot from CD/DVD.
If it does not then restart the PC and press F2 (or possibly another button. It should say press a button to enter setup on the first screen when the computer starts). Next there should be an option for boot. In the boot menu you should move your CD drive higher on the list than your Hard drive. Sometimes it may say press "a button" for boot sequence at startup. Compaq computers do that. Restart and then press enter when the pc asks to boot from the CD/DVD.

The setup should load and then you want to press R for Repair. It should then ask you to choose an installation. Normally there is only one choice. (C:\Windows). press the number beside your copy of windows, usually 1. Then you'll need to type the administrator password from the pc. Unfortunately if you do not know your administrator password you will not be able to continue from here (Remember to try a blank password).

*If you have forgotten your admin password you could download and burn a OPHcrack to a disk and it would find your admin password if you inserted it into the PC at startup just like the windows disc.

Next you should type the following command without the quotes: "chkdsk /r" the disk should check for and try and repair errors. When it completes you should run "fixboot" and "fixmbr" repair the startup process of the computer.

If this does not work and XP still wont start. I would recommend downloading Knoppix and burning it to a CD. It will boot the same as a the windows setup disk and you can recover the files from your hard drive with it. Attach an external drive and right click on the properties of the drive that appears, click on device and uncheck read only. Then double click the drive to mount it. The drives of your old computer should be called something like hda1 and maybe hda2. Open them and copy the data from the drive to the one that appeared when you plugged it in.

After copying the data you can reinstall windows and copy the data back.

I hope this helps you,

My kitchenaid dishwasher kude40fxss4 stops after few minutes into any cycle then the front blue light starts flashing. If I press start again it will start but it'll stop with the blue light flashing

Hello. I've attached images that show the error code chart for your series unit--look at the lights blinking, which ones and how many times they blink.Read the 1st instructions carefully to put the washer into diagnostic mode. You will have to go through the charts to find out what specific code you're getting and what it means. I hope this documentation helps you!

Power down on engine start

You need a "House Battery" to run your electronics off of. Running the Fishfinder on the start battery is not a good idea. If not practical, the operator must power down the unit during engine start. It is getting low vltage during crank.

I have a 2005 Audi A8L. Last week I got something out of the boot and then closed the lid, but instead of hearing the reassuring sound of the boot lid locking, there was none and the boot lid remained...

Hi Barry,

Sometimes, the locking mechanism closes while the lid remains open. Simply press your unlocking button on your fob, or in the vehicle. Then try to close the lid again.

User mode window (for adjusting the contrast, brightness etc) appears again again automatically.

First off... I would Re-Start your computer...OR...Shut down manually... to see if this fixes your problem. It's possible your computer didn't accept the changed setting? But...what you are experiencing is a Corrupt File, which will need to be removed!

Not sure exactly what you did? Where you trying to adjust the contrast, brightness, etc,.?

If you went through your Desktop to adjust these settings, always make sure you select APPLY and OK..

If you went through your System to Change your Resloution, you may have a Conflict with your chipset or even Malfunctioned it?

If re-starting your computer didn't fix your problem, than shut your computer down again!

Upon,..Re-booting...This time hold the Control Key down, so you can get into SAFE MODE!

I would then do a SYSTEM RESTORE under (SAFE MODE) and Restore your computer back to an earlier period that your computer was working correctly! Even, if you cleared the problem on the first step provided! Just type in the search box in your Control Panel System Restore! Or you can type in at the START Button...System Restore!

Also, while in SAFE Mode...go to your Device Drivers in your Device Manager and check for any setting that have a yellow symbol next to them...Click on each one and Update the Drivers!

Always, make Re-Start your computer after doing any changes...!

If you need further assistance, please don't hesistate to reply back to me! I'll be happy to help you!

Kind Regards!

My split system starts and in 2 min turns of and

Hi, the Led lights do indicate a problem with the unit. Not knowing what the flashes are, and you can find out what they mean, you will need to find the chart either on the indoor unit behind the cover by this Led light on the circuit board or could be on the outdoor unit panel. This chart will have error codes listed on it and according to how many flashes are taking place or if they are long slow or fast ect., such as this example, 3 flashes stops for a min and flashes 3 times again. It will lead you down the numbered chart to find this, like33 or 3-3 ect. This will tell you what is going on. Check this out and get back to me. If you have the manual, it should tell you. I will check back tomorrow to see what you have found, so contact me.

Yaesu VX-3R ham radio will not turn ON!!!!

Even though this is several months old, I thought I would post this reply. I had the same problem when I ran the battery completly down. The charge light didn't come on and the unit would not turn on with the power or battery. Sent the unit back to Yaesu for warranty work and they replaced the switch board. Unfortunately after I got it back and ran the battery down again..... Well, it's back at Yaesu AGAIN! Looks to me like there could be a problem with the power circuit being overloaded when it tries to charge the flat battery!!
Nice little rig, but it may be for sale once I get it back!!

Faint screen image

when you first power on using lower right (power) button, wait 6 seconds for the intro screen to finish. The upper left (up) button increases screen contrast. Hold this one down for a few seconds and the screen should darken. The middle left (down) button decreases contrast.

If this doesn't work, try turning off by holding the power button.
Hold down upper left AND upper right while turning unit on. This initiates diagnostic mode and contrast is darker by default. Bottom of screen is a button test area which darkens a symbol for each successful button press. Use it to diagnose a button problem. Turn off power and on again to leave diagnostic mode.

I wish you success playing with the Etrex.

Hi Matt,

There is a feature in these chartplotters called "Plotter Mode" that is often misunderstood and causes the exact problem you describe.

Press menu.....chart setup.....and scroll to the bottom until you see Plotter Mode in the list of options. It should be set in the OFF position.

If you have more than one display networked onboard check the setting in each one invividually.

What Plotter Mode does is allows the chartplotter system to access range scales not supported on the chart. It is not normally used for map-based navigation but more so for chartless electronic plotting (it can display routes, waypoints and track-recorder breadcrumbs.) open-ocean cruising, or for ultra-precise GPS operations (like a precision anchor drop, finding a very specific location etc. When plotter mode is on you can zoom in to a very, very small working area. The indicator it is enable is the cross-hatch background on the screen, the lack of map information, and the NO CHART DATA watermark on the screen.
