Re: Computer acting weird

If you were going through ur files and quickly deleting them, you mayw check ur wastebasket for your desktop (if this is the problem all that should be left is your wastebasket. If you have already emptied the basket, you can find programs online that pull up files that have been deleted as long as you havnt overwritten the space that the files were stored at.

Re: Computer acting weird

Verify that explorer.exe is a running task. If it's not, start it, and you should have your desktop back

Re: Computer acting weird


Based on your post/description, you may want to try:
1.Restore to last good settings.This is done by pressing F8 before Windows Starts. You will be presented with a menu of several option. Press arrow down till you highlight Last Known Good Configuration that worked, select that and Enter. Hopefully, your desktop PC will revert to the settings that worked prior to when your problem started;
2. Should # 1 don't work out and you would really want to "...wipe everything out...:, pls back up all your important files. likewise, you need to log down all your devices from your Device Manager or save/copy/back-up your installer/driver files. Thereafter, you need to borrow an installer CD of your Operating System. Pop the Cd installer and boot from the CD drive. When the installer asks you, delete the partition and allow it to format to your NTFS, reinstall and follow on screen instructions.

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thermaltake W0101RU 550W PSU weird Fault. If I

These are not easy to trouble shoot or repair without the correct equipment. Also there are very dangerous voltages in the large capacitors that could very easily injure, or kill you. I hate to say it but you are probably better off buying a new one.

Computer acts like it in standby mode will not power up, made a weird noise according to my daughter and quit

Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they are probably old and faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

hope this will help

What solve this problen in dll regster file Regsvr32 error 0x80004005

open an elevated command prompt.
To open an elevated Command Prompt, click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator if that doesnt work you need to fix the registry. CAUTION: you can, and most likely WILL screw your system up bad if you do not know EXACTLY what you are doing. you can get access to the registry by clicking start> accessories>command prompt then typing regedit in the box and click the button. PLEASE READ THE CAUTION I GAVE YOU!!
if you are not fully capable of editing your registry downlo0ad a program called error expert or registry editor or something like it. these programs will fix it for you. error expert is one of the very best you can buy it and download it here:

there is a free one called restry manager get it here:
this is the best way for you to go. as my caution said itwill most likel;y mess your system up to the point where you will need to reinstal widows if you goof up editing your registry by yourself.

Computer curser froze. Tried Con/Alt/Delete but didn't offer restart or shutdown. Turned power off manually. Let it rest. Turned power on, pressed ''start'' button in front, computer starts but screen says...

The simplest problem may be a failed power supply; these are junk and failures are common. The monitor is telling you that it is OK but is not receiving any video or sync signals from the computer.
Since you failed to tell us what make and model PC you have, no one can make a positive suggestion for replacement but it is probably a standard ATX form factor which you can find by the hundreds on eBay. Pricing is all over the map but you should be able to replace it for under $50 US. If you attempt this on your own, take a few snapshots with the case removed in case you get panicky when installing a new supply. Also, if your failed supply has a power rating below 300W, upgrade it and the new one will run cooler and likely longer. Add ~50% to the current power rating so ~450 watts would be appropriate.

Your Trend Micro will only handle viruses, for website access, it's the SpySweeper. Try disabling SpySweeper and surf, if all goes well, you just need to configure SpySweeper.

Presario S4020wm desktop

You need a new power switch. I am currently working on a S4020WM with the same problem. I cut one wire to the power switch, then used a paper clip to make a jumper to start the machine. It has run fine since then. The only trouble I am having is finding a replacement switch.
