Good day sir, hi. You may need to replace the old memory of your Presario, and reformat your hard drive, This is a more easier way to solve the problem than locate individually the fault. Try first to replace your memory modules, then check if that solves the problem, if not reformat the hard drive and setup windows, just make sure you back up your files.

The problem is your memory module and if you hear these long beep sound it indicates that a memory replacement in necessary, if these kind of thing happened it only means that you have a broken memory module

I have a vaio VGN-SR220J notebook. I tried to do a complete recovery with the recovery disc I made when I first purchased it in March 2009. However after the first disc, it told me to insert the second one...

Hi devil_ameet,

The issue may be with the Recovery Discs that you created. I would suggest that you try accessing the Recovery Partition in the Computer by pressing and holding the F10 Key while restarting the Computer. If you see a "Edit Boot Options" screen, please press the Enter Key. This would trigger the Computer to the VAIO Recovery Center which is present in the hidden partition of the Hard Drive. There, in the VAIO Recovery Center, please select the "Restore C: Drive" option to perform the Recovery.

If the Recovery Partition is not present in the Computer, the Recovery Discs are the only option to perform the Recovery. In that case, we can try resetting the BIOS to the default values, disconnecting the external Devices connected to the Computer and resetting the RAM Modules to troubleshoot the issue. Please let me know if you can access the Recovery Partition and perform the System Recovery.

Please let me know if you have any questions and require any further assistance.

Thanks for using FixYa.

My computer is an everex running windows xp home edition. My computer will not do anything keep stating it is restarting setup. Then it freezes, it will not let me safe booth or do anything but turn it off...

Ok it needs to have a file disabled that says " restart on faults."
To get to it. Put the XP disc in the drive with the computer turned off.
Start the computer. It should ask if you want to hit any key to boot off the disc.If so tap any key.
(If it does not ask as above you need to change the way the computer boots.. Turn it off. As it restarts tap the delete key to enter the BIOS. In that window you will see a tab 'boot order" Click the tab and follow the instructions to make the DVD or CD drive the first device to boot from. Then the hard drive 2nd.
the instructions are usually in a littlesquare box bottom right and may be using the - and + keys or page up and page down keys to change the order.
When you get the order correct, escape from the BIOS and SAVE what you have done by clicking on save and exit.
The machine will boot off the disc and offer a repair option. The os you select is 1.

Toshiba Tecra 8100 will not boot, even the toshiba boot screen not displayed

Thats a link to info about bios updates on the tosh website. If you're not getting to the toshiba screen then POST has not completed which means that either there's a hardware problem or the bios is corupt. If you're sure the RAM is ok try flashing the Bios.

Problem is though, to make the bios update disc, you need a working computer.

and, err, It'll probably have to be a toshiba!
(sorry, not my fault!)

Problems with the memory card

HI Have you contacted either the dealer you bought the machine from or Janome directly? There is a Janome group on the internet at Yahoogroups...maybe someone there would have the answer? I've been told that the owner of Janome monitors the group--that is WOW for an international company to pay attention to the customers! Good luck,pat

I had exactly the same issue, with my freinds camera, turned out that my card reader just didn't like the card, I got an external reader and that worked fine.

MY mp3 player says its total space is 0mb and free space is 0mb and there for it will not let me put files on it

Check with another computer. If problem solved then its a software/compatibility issue, if not then your player is faulty and you should consult the shop where you bought it. You can also check if your computer gives the same error when inserting other disc on key type devices. Good luck
