Question about Computer Utilities & Maintenance

Computer takes time to start

I just got 512 MB RAM. My computer was as fast as rocket. But today i saw it has started to display a black screen at startup with a grey dash blinking. It takes a long time to startup now and also hangs midway sometime. I have to switch off the main power unit and and switch it on again at those times.

    Installed F-Secure Client security. Four F-Secure processes show up on Windows task manager at startup with high CPU. FSM32.EXE reaches a max of 300MB memory within 1-2 minutes and drops to 1M. Heavy disk activity during this time. Have not scheduled any startup scans. No H/W or S/W changes other than FS installation. FS is obviously doing somekind of repetitive disk scan. I found no help on F-Secure site. Any comments?

Perhaps you are suffering from a memory mismatch? Is the memory in one or two DIMM's? This can happen if/when the memory is not seated properly(just open up the machine, with power off, battery out(if appropriate) and extract memory, then reinstall it. Try that first.


got backup?

Want to make sure your drivers are in place and no errors have occurred?
Simply click start right click on my computer select properties then select device manager scroll to Display Adapters and click on the small + you should see the model of your PCI Express graphic card there. If there is a problem with it, a yellow exclamation mark should appear besides it.
If you don't see it everything is OK and your card is working properly.
If your computer came with a motherboard disc the drivers could be on it
Click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll to display adapters + to expand you might see a yellow question exclamation mark ? mark ! or a red x right click select reinstall drivers
if you don't have a disk with the drivers you have to download them
LCD, or liquid crystal display, monitors offer an amazing image and are ideal for use with a computer.
LG currently focuses on LCD televisions that can double as a monitor, but the company still supports its LCD monitor line.
While LG LCD monitors are normally reliable, there may be a need to reset the monitor to the factory default settings to correct an image or software problem.

Press the "Menu" button on the right side of the monitor. This will bring up the On Screen Display. If nothing happens when the "Menu" button is pressed, press and hold it for several seconds to unlock the On Screen Display.
Scroll through the menu options by using the up and down arrow buttons located just under the "Menu" button. Scroll down to the "Setup" icon, which looks like a big cog. Press the "Auto/Set" button to access the Setup menu.
Scroll, using the down arrow, to "Factory Reset." This setting is located at the bottom of the Setup menu.
Press the "Auto/Set" button to choose "Factory Reset" and then press the down arrow to reset the monitor.

If this does not fix the problem.
