There are a lot of items that can cause this from spy-ware (different to virus) to almost any hardware problem, to a simple overheating issue.

You need to work out which of those it is.

My first step being the easiest would be to take off the side of the computer after disconnecting it to check for dust build up in and around the cooling fan and power supply.
This is easily fixed with a can of compressed air meant for cleaning computers and just requires that you take it outside and blow it all out whilst wearing glasses and without poking the nozzle into anything.

Ram slot problems are quite rare nowadays but it may not harm to just remove it and blow out the slots and then put it back in.

Check that any extra cards are also seated fully as this can happen esp. if the computer was moved or leads were pulled that connect to them.

For Antispyware I generally recommend that using a clean known computer that a copy of MBAM is downloaded to a flash drive and then copied to the desktop. of the suspect computer.
Run it from there but do not change any options just accept the defaults.

when it is installed and has run let it delete anything it may have found.

After that I would run full and deep anti-virus scans with a good anti-virus (NOTE that Norton and Mcafee are NOT on this list).

I turned on my camera and I get an error message that says, Lens Error Camera will shut off automatically. Then the camera shuts off. The lens will not pop out?


Hi.
This problem occurs when there is zoom-block problem. The solution is to change all the zoom-block, but normally this is more expensive than a new camera.
This mechanism fails due to sand, dust or just useful life expired.

Cannot view offline message


When you log into Yahoo! Messenger, a little box will pop up with all the messages that were sent to you when you were offline. If you didn't have any offline messages, the box will not appear. You can choose to respond to the messages or just to close the box. However, once you do that, Yahoo! will give you a message that says the messages will automatically be deleted. There isn't an option that allows you to save them, so once the box is closed, that's pretty much the end of seeing those messages.

I can't shut down my PC,It restarts again!


This behavior may occur if Windows stops responding during a typical operation or during the shutdown process. By default, the computer is configured to automatically restart when Windows stops responding. To view this setting, follow these steps:
  1. Click the Start button, right-click My Computer, click Properties, click the Advanced tab, and then click Settings under Start up and Recovery.
  2. Under System Failure, view the Automatically restart check box. If the Automatically restart check box is selected, Windows automatically restarts if the computer stops unexpectedly.
If your computer constantly restarts while you are using it, or if you are trying to shut down the computer after it has stopped unexpectedly, click to clear the Automatically restart check box. If you clear this check box, you receive an error message when the computer stops responding. This error message may describe the cause of the problem. You can also review the system log in Event Viewer to view the critical stop error that occurs when the computer restarts. For additional information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 308427 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/308427/ ) HOW TO: View and manage event logs in Event Viewer in Windows XP To configure the way that Windows responds when the computer stops unexpectedly, follow these steps.

Note: You must be logged on as an administrator or a member of the Administrators group to complete this procedure. If your computer is connected to a network, network policy settings may prevent you from completing this procedure.
  1. Log on to the host computer as either an administrator or the owner.
  2. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
  3. Under Pick a category, click Performance and Maintenance.
  4. Under the or pick a Control Panel icon section, click System.
  5. Click the Advanced tab, and then click Settings under Startup and Recovery.
  6. Click to select any one of the following check boxes under System Failure:
    • Write an event to the system log
    • Send an administrative alert
    • Automatically restart
    At last if nothing works then clear the "Star up"
  7. C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Start up
    If you are not satisfied then If you are using XP then repair it.

thanks

My laptop does not go to sleep when I close it.


Check your laptop's energy savings settings are on. It might be set to go into hybernation after a certain amount of time. Also, have you tried pushing and releasing the power button instead of holding it when it does this? By holding the power button down until it turns off, you are causing a "hard" shutdown, which means it is by-passing all of the normal shutdown operations and can cause an error message to pop up when you boot it back up. Let me know if this helps!

The System has recovered from a serious error


Check the error log. It should give you a specific error which you can then correct. Also check your device manager to see if any devices are displaying a yellow exclamation point. Make sure you have all the current drivers for your hardware installed. Hope this helps.
