Re: restarting computer

Try starting up in Safe Mode.

Once in safe mode, use antispyware/antivirus software to check for problems.

Need a simple solution to Problem signature: Problem Event Name: BlueScreen OS Version: 6.1.7601. Locale ID: 4105

Restart in Safe Mode: Make sure system is powered down or restarted. Repeatedly tap the F8 key till you see a text screen with the option to start in Safe Mode with Networking. The screen will be smaller to navigate in safe mode but see if your issues continue in this mode.. If the computer seems to work fine in this mode then chances are you are infected or have corrupt files or drivers. At that point, I'd restore the computer to it's factory state - As it would have been when you bought it.. Make sure you back up all your files that are wanted. Infections can be cleaned to a fair degree, But most of the time I usually have the system reset to new factory settings. Make it easier this way. Greatest of luck and have a great day.

I delete the realtik audio device on my computer what should i do ? sum1 plz help me plz plz plz pzlz

have you tried to restart. deleting the device from device manager usually mean uninstalling the device, now restart usually will detect any plug and play devices and should reinstall the device for you.

if that does not work I would try a previous system restore on point prior to the change.

lastly, I would try to reinstall the audio device (driver) by consulting the hardware manufacturer and the specific device's manufacturer's website.

When I try to boot it simply says windows rootsystem 32hal.dll missing or corrupt, replace the missing file. How to go about it.

HAL stands for Hardware Abstraction Layer. As it's a hardware related file it is not wise to copy from another computer. You need to reinstall by a bootable cd. try an external Cd drive if you don't have one.

or Restore your PC to the time that it worked well

All Programs-> Accessories -> System Tools -> System Restore

then check 'Restore my computer an earlier time" and select the date your computer worked well

and next next next next finally Restart your computer

Restarting itself every 5-10minutes

If your computer restarts itself with no warning, your problem could be an overheating issue. Make sure that all the fans inside the case for your computer are clean. If you find that they are coated in dust, or have an even layer over your heat sync, take a can of compressed air to clean out as much as possible.

Pc keeps freezing PLEASE HELP

step 1: clean up your drive by using "left click desktop My Computer icon-hover drive c then right click and select Properties-look for Disk Cleanup button and select it and proceed to eliminate almost everything that you can. step 2: Then select TOOLS tab and run Error Checking and deselect both optionals then run Defrag. When done, then run Start-All Programs-Accessories-System tools-System restore and then turn off Restore. step 3: Now repeat step 1. step 4: Now repeat step 2 but turn on restore. step 5: power down (using Windows-not power plug). step 6: restart Windows if all worked ok, what you just accomplished was to free up many many bytes of data. The restore function, when used continuously, can use up a sizable portion of the drive which is also looking for free virtual memory space. Also, if you have 1Gbyte of memory or more, you may turn virtual memory off, improving speed.
