How do you fix a corrupted bios?


I don't think it's corrupt bios, maybe a virus or malware.
But if you can go to the computers maker website and download bios and install them the way they tell you to install them.

"Windows failed to start. A


Hello,
It sounds to me like the harddrive has errors on it. First, I would try completely reinstalling windows with the windows disk. If that does not solve the problem there are several pieces of software that are much stronger harddrive repair solutions than the built in Windows one. Try this one, it is free for 10 days. You will need another computer (friend's computer?) to download and burn this software onto a CD, then put the CD in your computer and boot to it by pressing any key when it asks you to.

Simple test: try to boot from a Linux Live-CD, one like

If you can then something is wrong with the hard disk - try to access them in Linux and see if all the data is still there and not corrupted. If the access is difficult and full of errors then you will need a new hard disk.
If you can't access it even with the live-CD then the motherboard of your laptop (more precisely its chipset) has failed and it will have to be replaced.

My computer won't start. It run the start up fan on high and doesn't get past that point. It will run there forever and not start.


maybe you should open the casing to clean it up to prevent
the air circular blocked.

Fan spin high is kinda build in protection of overheating of CPU.

To start my computer takes 15min and to shut down the same time??


it means that lots of applications are loaded at startup.
first go to start-> all programs -> start up.
you shouldn't have anything there except if a program is really needed at startup.

then go to start --> run --> type msconfig and press enter.
go to startup and see if any items are loaded at startup that shouldn't be there. (quick time, acrobat, etc)

  • Click Apply
Now, Reboot your PC. You’ll notice a boost in the performance of the startup process.

A an Emachine T1090 with 128mb of RAM. System takes forever (10 minutes) to boot up. Once up and running it performs much better. Are there any known cures? Would adding RAM help?


Adding RAM would definitely help. What operating system are you running? You could run msconfig and try starting with a diagnostic startup. If the computer loads much more quickly, you could remove some of your startup items. Ask someone before removing anything though!

My TOSHIBA laptop won't turn on


flashing three times means something physically wrong with ur laptop. could be fault with ur power supply, Hard drive or ram. 
- with the battery, plug in ur power supply and check if ur LED is glowing and the laptop is charging well.
if the problem persists,
- reset the RAM and the Hard drive, [ for this take out the ram and Hard drive and put them back again].
if still the problem persists, take it to repair. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- u dont have to worry bout the backup in ur laptop. a simple solution would be to get a 2.5 inch hard drive enclosure, install ur harddrive into that, connect it to a different computer and back it up!, but be sure what type of Harddrive u have , is it a IDE harddrive or a SATA harddrive.

Slow initial Start up ????


Your computer is trying to load a lot of programs on startup. Click Start --> Run, type msconfig. A window will appear, and on the Startup tab uncheck all startup programs and reboot. Then go back to msconfig and check the programs that you need.
