Vista wont start up

First morning after buying a pc with Vista. Installed ok and I set up my internet. Went to sleap leaving my pc on and this morning I cant get my pc on. Screen is blank and power button on the box stays orange. This has not just happened to me but to my sister aswell. She bought a pc and same thing happened. The repair guy had to reinstall. Dont know if this was the same problem or if there is some "sleep mode" that was set as default and I cant get pc on to take it off.

Re: Vista wont start up

To remove the sleep mode: right click the desktop and select Personalize, Click screen saver, at the bottom of that window you'll see "Change Power Settings" Click on that. Next to the left side of the window click on "Change when the computer goes to sleep and change the setting to "Never".. As far as why its doing it is unclear without hands on work, but you should have warranty for it. Tell them to fix it or try a differ brand of PC.

Cant download ares or limewire

Update windows explorer on windows vista.
Here is the reason why it closes down your AOL when your going to download from ARES or LIMEWIRE because from Internet Explorer (Internet Options) automatically change the network setting, supposed to be Automatic Setting to connect on the internet but it change into Bypass or Proxy Server "check it there". We encounter this before but I do is to update the Internet explorer from 7.0 version up to the latest version of IE.
Hope were the same problem and help you guide about this. Good luck!

I have a computer where the MOBO and CPU went bad and I replaced. The old computer came with Windows Vista installed on it, no CD. Now, Windows Vista won't boot and windows start up repair is activated...

The problem is when Vista was installed on the old pc it only recognizes that pc so you will need to buy a copy of Vista and install it on the new pc. And if you don't want to loose your info you can buy a ide/sata to usb cable and hook it up to your new pc to transfer your old info across. Hope this helps.

Computer very slow and sluggish. Microsoft office documents open very slowly. General performance slow.

Delete all temp & internet temp files and just check if any AV is scanning in the background. AVG / Kapersky / Mcafee do these background scans silently sometimes. Maybe that is slowing down the pc. Disconnect from lan and internet and try wkg on the pc

Sir/ Madam -
Please try to use any other browser like firfox or Chrome and see if you are able to stream video. If yes there might be a proble with Internet Explore setting .
Try below steps to fix it --

Clear cached data in Internet Explorer 7 loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); To determine whether a performance issue or an error message is caused by corruption in the temporary Internet files or in other cached information that is used by Internet Explorer 7, you must clear cached data. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Open Internet Explorer 7.
  2. Click Tools, and then click Delete Browsing History.
  3. In Delete Browsing History, click Delete All.
  4. Click to select the Also delete files and settings stored by add-ons check box, and then click OK
Reset security settings for Internet Explorer 7 loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); If you configure security settings to be too restrictive, you may prevent Internet Explorer 7 from displaying certain Web sites.

  2. Click Tools, and then click Internet Options.

Volume on computer wont work

I found many references to this issue but I am not sure which may apply to your problem. Here is a set of steps to follow from another site: (Assumes Vista and Realtek)

  • Open Vista’s Control Panel (Window | Control Panel)
  • Open the Realtek Audio Manager (not “Sound”)
  • In the navigation bar in the far right, there is a little yellow folder icon. It is just below “Device advanced settings” and above “ANALOG”. Click the folder icon.
  • Click “Disable front panel jack detection” so that a yellow check mark shows up. Hit “OK”, and close the Realtek HD Audio Manager. That should re-enable the sound.

VIsta bbusiness refusing to boot up

you could try entering in safemode to uninstall the update..
to enter safemode.. after a couple of seconds of being turn on, you have to press F8.. then it will ask you in what mode do you want to enter, enter in safe mode with no networking for less hassle and less time to enter..
then go to control panel, add or remove programs and try to find what you installed there to uninstall it..
