Question about HP PAVILION M8200N PC Desktop

2 Answers

Lately my computer shuts down or freezes at random times. After it shuts down, when I attempt to reboot, a beeping noise can be heard through the tower. What's going on? I believe there may be trojans infecting my PC, but how can I properly and indefinitely rid my computer of these insidious viruses?

You mention there is a beeping noise you heard when rebooting your pc... check your unit by unscrew your cover side of your unit and check any hardware installed if its properly connected, specially your video card if you have, your memory, your lancard...before you unplug and connect again your peripherals please unplug the power first from your Ac outlet.

regarding for your suspesion in trojans infection.... try to run a combofix software... you can download that one in bleepingcomputers.com or just tyle the word combofix in your search engine of your browser. download that one. it should be the latest on the net after downloading combofix copy and paste it in your desktop and run it....take note follow the steps carefully appear on the screen.

about your question to properly rid off of computer virues you have a reliable anti-virus internet security installed in your PC/laptop.....and it should be updated...another solution to that one is by freezing your hardrive use the deepfreeze installer.

IMAC SCREEN FREEZES OR GOES BLACK.


same thing happens to me - most of the time it will just randomly freeze; occasionally i get an unresponsive black screen. this 24' aluminum imac usually has startup problems also - sometimes it will "gong" and nothing else; sometimes the apple logo will come up and then nothing else; sometimes it will load the logo and then spin for a few seconds and then freeze - the only option is to manually shut down. there is no rhyme or reason to it

Toshiba satellite A70-KL1 notebook shuts down


Scan the Computer using any latest updated anti virus program for any potential threat.

If the computer is not infected by any virus or trojan then you may also try performing System restore to the time when the Computer worked normally.

If the Computer keeps shutting down randomly after turning ON then the Power Supply Unit in the Notebook requires service.

Adobe photoshop 7 either stops working and closes or causes my computer to freeze up completly


There are many reasons why a computer may freeze or completely crash. The most common reason is an overload in the memory. Computers have a set amount of memory to work with (this is their RAM, or "Random Access Memory"). If you attempt to do more with the computer than it's capable of handling at one time, it may "crash" in an attempt to save itself. Generally, the cause of this is generally that too many programs are running at once for the computer to handle. If you are not using a program, close it. Conflicts between programs are other well-known reasons for crashes. Programs such as virus detectors are notorious for conflicting with other applications and utilities. If you notice that crashes are occurring while the same two programs are running, try to avoid running these two programs at the same time.
What Can I Do?
  1. Take Notes
    Your first step should be to pay attention to what was happening at the time of the freeze or crash. Try to isolate the program that may be causing problems (this can help prevent a further, more damaging, crash). Is there a history of problems with a particular program (or combination of programs) on your computer? Were too many programs running at once? Was it a particular task you were trying to do? See if you can form a hypothesis about the cause. By understanding what may have caused it this time, you can attempt to avoid future, similar occurrences.


  2. Try to End the Program
    Windows provides a "Task Manager" that lists all current programs in operation. In Windows 9x & ME, this menu is brought up by pressing Ctrl + Alt + Delete at the same time. In Windows 2000, after pressing Ctrl + Alt + Delete, click the "Task List" button. In this menu, you can attempt to individually close programs that are causing problems. If programs are unresponsive, Windows will attempt to notify you of this in the Task Manager.
    If you are able to effectively close the program causing problems, save your work in all other open programs, and reboot your computer. This will help to prevent further crashes, and give your system a clean slate to work from again.

  3. Reboot
    If you are not able to effectively close the program in question, you have several options. Please note that any changes in unsaved documents WILL be lost in a system reboot. With the Task Manager open, try pressing Ctrl + Alt + Delete once more. Windows will attempt to reboot itself.
    If the Task Manager does not respond, you still have a few options. Check your computer's tower to see if there is a "Reset" button (it will be in the general area of the normal "Power" button, and should be slightly smaller than it). Press the "Reset" button, and your computer should reboot.
    If you are unable to find the "Reset" button or do not have one, there is one final option to pursue. Find the "Power" button on your computer's tower. Press and hold this button. You will need to hold it for a few seconds (sometimes up to ten full seconds). At some point, your computer should shut down completely. If nothing happens, keep holding the button. Do not press and let go without giving the computer a fair chance to shut down.

Desktop freezes up so often or gets logout by itself & reboot?!


This could be a couple of things, overheating may cause it to randomly shut down, but if it freezes up on you then it could be a motherboard issue or memory. When you boot up your computer, does it beep at you at all? More than 1 beep signifies a problem. Right click on the my computer icon and click properties, see how much memory it says you have, does that number look accurate? A bad memory module could cause similar problems. A bad motherboard would, in my experience, more often freeze when you first boot up.

Normal 0 How much memory do you have installed in your computer? It may need to be, increased, as this is likely to be the cause of your computer freezing, rebooting, times out, or shutting down.
Hope this is of some help. Bud

Random beeps, oven almost starts itself


The touch pad may be defective. There is a membrane behind the buttons that will cause problems like that. The only cure is to replace the touch assy.
