My computer will not open any programs or cd drive wont open. When I try to open a program the command prompt screen comes up and then closes but the program wont open

YEOW... not fun...

Reboot ---> as soon as you see the very first opening screen (the manufacturers screen, BEFORE the windows screen) press and hold F8 --> the menu that appears will give you some options, choose "Boot in Safe Mode" --> When Windows loads, it will either give you the option immediately to run System Restore (or go to Start ---> Help & Support --> System Restore)

Either way, if the computer is attepting to open a command prompt from a normal icon, you have issues! Try to restore it first to a date sometime before the problem started!

Hope this helps!

Sandisk Cruzer no longer prompting for password

I think the problem is corrosion on the contacts. Shut the computer off. Gently insert and remove the USB drive several times to try and clean the contacts. Turn the computer ON and when Windows has set up properly, insert the USB drive and see if you can read it. Many of the new drives and reader ports do not use gold contacts (too expensive) but use copper or aluminium which corrode easier an easiest.

The problem is solved...
