Check point (VMGR) error in boot screen


Run the Check Disk Utility.

To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc ora operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot fromit. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with whiteletters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice thepercentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run tocompletion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows.Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents,music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair whenthe options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recoveryconsole and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.

Acer aspire 5520 keeps powering off before it starts properly how do i fix


Switch ON the PC, boot the PC in 'Safe Mode' by continuously tapping F8 button after you switch On until you get the Safe Mode Option.

Let windows boot in Safe Mode and log in to windows.

Switch On your PC/ Laptop and log in to windows.

Go to 'Start'--->Programs--->Accessories--->System Tools--->Click 'System Restore'


A 'System Restore' window will appear.

Here you will have to check "Restore computer to an earlier time' and click Next


Now you will find one Month Calendar window with Dates below, go to the previous month by clicking the '<' sign in the upper left hand corner of the Month Calendar and select any date that you see in Bold.


Note: It is better if you could remember from which date you are facing the issue, try to select a date prior to that date.


The detail of that particular date should show "System Checkpoint" and time on the right hand side box. Select that date.


Now, Click on Next and System Restore will start and windows will take a reboot.

After reboot your problem should be resolved.

DELL Optilex GX110 - RAM


Put the "old" RAM back into the computer, to see if the PC will work at all, or if you damaged the motherboard when you were changing the RAM, or if you accidentally disconnected some cables or jumper-blocks.

Intel 820 dual core


this has happened to me in the past and maybe related to a windows update, go into accesories and system tools and perform a system restore to a date before any of the listed system check and see if that cures the problem. It may be worth running a scan for spyware as it may be a programme using up cpu usage trying to initiate the startup. I woukd also perform a registry clean and a temp files cleanup, This is an excellent free tool for reg and temp cleanup's http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/
