Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

When booting this morning, 1st try, it made it to pick a user, I picked Mom and then it was loading programs and froze during wireless assistant. The only way to get out was to unplug and remove the battery. Yesturday my computer went into hibernation while plugged in after restarting due to loosing the wireless mouse and touch pad mouse use. That was a hard restart also. Ctrl, alt del has not been woking. From time to time my printer and other usb devices aren't reconized. I get a message saying there isn't one. That started last Oct. I paid HP to fix it. They said I must of had a virus, although they never found one and they reformatted the hard drive and I started over with the same problem. It has just gotting worse.

    There is 78% free space on the hard drive. Will deleting unwanted files and adding memory (above 1meg) get rid of the USB problems?

To make your unit run properly first of all delete some unwanted files and folders.also increase the RAM memory chips.and also connect the external hard disk if possible.its all happening because the space in the hard disk is very much occupied by the files and the folders.this is faced by many users.this mostly solves the problems.
Please do rate the solution. Thank you for using fixya.keep updated. thanks

Cannot reformate hard drive

You have to be the computer administrator to change any values on any of your hard drives
1.Open your "Control Panel," which is located on your "Start" menu under "Settings."
It may also be on your "Desktop."
Click on "Users Accounts."
This will show you the administrator of the computer.

Look at the various things that you can do on this page.
You can set up other users, change or remove your password, change your picture or account type and manage another account.

Select "Manage another Account."
This shows all the users for this computer.
You can "Create a New Account" here or you can change the type of account each user has.

Pick "Create another Account" and click on it.
Type in the name you want to call this new account.
For example if you want to create an account for your child, you call the new account by the child's name.
Decide on whether this user will be a "Standard User" or an "Administrator."
Most of the time you will want to make the user a "Standard User," but if you are getting a new computer and turning this computer over to someone else, you need to make them an "Administrator."

Change the computer's administrator.
Pick a "User" or create a new user.
Make them the administrator as described in Step 5.
Delete the old administrator's account or change it to a standard user.

BIOS to change boot order
During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup usually the Delete or the F2 key but will differ depending on your computer and Bios.
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS then using the arrow keys navigate to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to cd press escape then press f10 to save to cmos restart
this will erase you operating system you will have to have an operating system disk to load it onto you hard drive or create a partition to load another operating system.
Note: After you have loaded the operating system you should go back and change the first boot device to failsafe or optimised defaults after windows has loaded
If you are putting windows XP on your computer your computer will automatically restart it might restart 2 times one to finish the installation
the next will be because the operating system is loaded and will boot from your cd\dvd.

Computer keeps on restarting over and over

Try F8 at boot and see if you can enter safe mode, it is not the video card, PSU highly unlikely, CD ROM slight maybe, RAM NOT, MB NOT, you have a windows corruption of some sort, hold the F8 key down during boot, if it works, go to Start, All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, System Restore and pick a point when the computer was working OK,
Use RegInOut, a System Utilities program that includes several features which allows the PC users to speedup their computer performance. It improves system performance by removing junk files and fixing registry errors. Its additional feature of Internet Optimizer enhance users web browsing experience.

I have a Toshiba Tecra M7 that won't boot and up until this morning nothing worked. This is what I've done so far this morning WHEN it does decide to boot. 1. Power up computer from off with ESC...

Your hard drive may have gone south. Remove it and check with diagnostic software. Bad sectors in critical areas of operating system data will do this.

Computer will not boot since i download superantispyware.

You can boot your computer to safe mode by tapping the 'F8' key as soon as you power it on. It will go to a black screen with white letters, and in the menu shown you can find Safe Mode. Use the keyboard up or down arrow button to highlight Safe Mode, then hit 'Enter'. This should enable you to boot to a basic desktop. If you get a user screen asking which user you want to sign in as, pick 'Administrator', then click 'OK' if a warning pops up saying you are entering Safe Mode. When you are on the basic desktop, you should be able to open Start button - Settings (on XP) - Control Panel - Add or Remove Programs (XP), or Programs and Features (Vista or 7). From there you can uninstall SuperAntiSpyware so you can boot your computer normally. When you've done that, you need to find out why the program stopped the boot process after install. It could be you don't have sufficient RAM, hard disk space, or the correct version for your Operating System. Try to get your computer booting normally, then you can ask if you need further assistance.

Laptop powers up i log into any user acct . and within a min or 2 i get a system shutdown message and comp counts down for 60 seconds then shuts down and restarts c:\windows\system\32\lsass.exe ...

You have unfortunately picked up a copy of the old lsass virus. This was someone's idea of a funny virus in as much as it would just keep giving you the countdown and shutting your computer down. If you have an anti-virus program installed on your computer what you can do is boot your computer into safe mode (this can be accomplished by pressing F8 during your computers bootup. On the menu that appears choose to boot in safe mode), and then running a complete scan on your entire hard drive. By booting the computer in Safe Mode all of the extra programs that normally load will not do so. Once your scan is complete, and you have deleted all of the infected files, you should then be able to boot your computer into the regular Windows program.

Thank you for the opportunity to assist you in resolving your issue. Should you need further information or assistance please do not hesitate to let us know.
