Recovery disks will tyically either remove everything on your system or at least prevent all the programs you have installed from working until you reinstall them. Do you have any virus or spyware protection? Your system could be overreun with malware (bad software) that is taking up all the processing power. You should probably run HijackThis to do an analysis and report back what you find. At the very least, you should be running Spybot Search & Destroy for anti-spyware and AVG for anti-virus (both are free) or other such software. Beware, however, of products that appear in pop up windows as those are usually malware that is created to get you to buy software from the same people who wrote the malware - in other words, they write software to infect your machine just so you'll buy their software to uninfect it..

How do u program a jensen321remote


1.Manually turn on the component you want the remote to control.
2.Press and hold the component key (TV, VCR, Etc..) you wish to program. The illuminated ON-OFF key turns and remains on.

If your component turns off, you have found the correct code.
7.Once you have found the correct code, you must save the new code by pressing and releasing the STOP key. The illuminated ON-OFF key turns off. You must press the STOP key to save the code or the correct code will not be stored.

My screen on my laptop is broken. Can i plug a monitor into my laptop?


1) connect your external monitor to the laptop and then switch the monitor on
2) boot up the laptop
3) after it has successfully booted, you need to identify which function key toggles the external monitor on/off
4) you should be able to do this by holding down the Fn key and trying each of the F keys in turn, waiting a few seconds after pressing each one
5) begin by holding down "Fn" + "F3", "Fn" + "F4", "Fn" + "F5" etc.

If this doesn't work, it may be worth examining all the keys and look for a small monitor symbol on one of the keys. If you find this symbol, hold down the Fn key and then hit the corresponding key with the monitor symbol.

I have a dell dem. 2400 and it runs extremely slow how do i speed it up?


There are many causes for a slodown but you can do 2 things right away.

1. Clean your temp files and Registry.
2. Check for Viruses and clean them

Here's how you start.

1. Hold down the Windows Logo key at bottom left of key board and press the R key,
a 'Run Window will appear. In that window type this exactly

%temp% and then press the Enter key

Now you'll see a Temp Files window. Take your time and delete every single file Winwos will allow (tip, any files you see with the little left coner bent over cannot be deleted) It's perfectly fine to leave those files as Windows needs them to support your computer.

2. Go online and Download a simple and totally free proram called Cleaner. Install and use it's first 2 features and get help if you're even a little conceerned.

3. Dowload another great program (free) called "Malewarebytes" and use their easily understood Quick Scan feature. Get rid of the viruses using the easy instructions.

After all that, if your computer runs slow, you need a new hard drive, as all hard drives are really only expected to make it at full capacity for 3 to 5 years.

That's all your problems sound like to me.

Please do me a great kindness, as I have tried to do you one.. Do not leave 2 thumbs up. It decreases my rating for trying to help you for free while you have to wait for concrete resaults, but can belittle me for not getting you a quick fix. I'd rather you posted nothing.

Kind Regards,

TheSelkie

How can i disable my verr.maj. on my acer laptop?thnk you


Hi!
This problem occurs when you inadvertently switch the language of your keyboard by simultaneously holding down the left 'ctrl' key and the left 'shift' key for 3-4 seconds.
To resolve:
Press 'ctrl' on the left side simultaneously with the left 'shift' button for 3-4 seconds; this will switch your keyboard language up to the next in queue. Keep doing this until you get the desired one (i.e. english US or whichever keyboard of preference that you have selected).
If you plan on only typing with only one type of keyboard, then you can disable the above ctrl-shift hotkey sequence and avoid this problem in the future. The instructions to do this are as follows:
1. Go to: control panel --> clock, language and region --> region and language --> keyboard and language tab --> change keyboard --> advanced key setting tab
2. Select/highlight 'between input languages'
3. click 'change key sequence'
4. Under 'switch keyboard layout' select 'not assigned'.
5. click 'ok'
6. click 'ok'
Hope that helps!

My hp 7965 pc desktop (pavillion) starts fine but when loading windows xp, it gets to a piont and restarts the computer completely, over and over again. HELP please!!


Some Software Applications May Cause Windows Stop Responding or Restart During Startup or Boot in Windows XP.

If a PC that has been working properly fails to startup or boot, especially after a new application or driver is installed, it is necessary to perform one or more of the following methods to correct the problem. The PC may lockup, freeze, hang, or automatically restart when the Windows Desktop first displays during startup.
Method 1: Disabling automatic restart
This method disables automatic restart if you are unable to view Windows Desktop and/or the notebook continues rebooting automatically (whether by the user or the notebook continues booting without user intervention).
1. During the rebooting process, repeatedly press the F8 key to enter Windows Advance Options Menu.
2. Use the up and down arrow keys to select Disable automatic restart on system failure and then press the Enter key.
3. Use up and down arrow keys to select the operating system to start (if more than one OS is installed).
4. Press the Enter key. Windows should start.

Method 2: Use last known good configuration
Using the last known good configuration may allow the pc to boot to Windows using the most recent settings that worked.
1. During the rebooting process, repeatedly press the F8 key to enter Windows Advance Options Menu.
2. Use the up and down arrow keys to select Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked) and then press the Enter key.
3. Use up and down arrow keys to select the operating system to start (if more than one OS is installed).
4.Press the Enter key.

Method 3: Use System Restore to reset Windows to an earlier known safe operating point
This method reverses recent operating system changes to the notebook PC, such as the installation of new software, and takes the computer back to a previous working state. This method may uninstall or remove the software that is causing the problem. Check with the software manufacturer for any known problems and reinstall the software if appropriate.
1. Start Windows in the Safe Mode as follows:
- Remove any disks or CDs, and disconnect any external devices or peripherals.
- Press and hold the Power button for 5 seconds to turn off the computer.
- Press the Power button to turn on the computer.
- Press the F8 key repeatedly when the first screen appears.
- From the Windows Advanced Start-up menu, select Safe Mode and press ENTER .
The computer may run slower in the Safe Mode and the desktop will not look as nice due to reduced colors.
2. Click Start , then click Help and Support .
3. On the Help and Support home page, click System Restore .
4. On the System Restore page, select the Restore my computer to an earlier time option and click Next .
5. Navigate through the calendar looking for a highlighted date and select a restore point date and time that is earlier than when you started experiencing the problem, then click Next .
The computer should shut down and turn back on by itself after the restoration completes. When the Restoration Complete window appears, click OK to continue.

Method 4: Uninstall recently installed applications using Add/Remove Programs
1. Start Windows in the Safe Mode as follows:
- Remove any disks or CDs, and disconnect any external devices or peripherals.
- Press and hold the Power button for 15 seconds to turn off the computer.
- Press the Power button to turn on the computer.
- Press the F8 key repeatedly when the first screen appears.
- From the Windows Start-up menu, select Safe Mode and press ENTER .
The computer may run slower in Safe Mode and the desktop will not look as nice due to reduced colors.
2. On the Windows taskbar click Start , click Control Panel and then click Add or Remove Programs .
3. Navigate through the alphabetical list of all installed programs and select the name of the most recently installed program or programs.
4. Click Remove , click OK when prompted to verify the removal of the program.
5. Restart the computer by selecting Start , Shutdown , and Restart .
- If the computer starts up properly, contact the software manufacturer for updated instructions for a proper installation.
- If the computer does not start up properly, reboot the computer in the Safe Mode and repeat the methods for uninstalling any other recently installed software.

Method 5: Remove applications that load during startup using the System Configuration Utility
If the system fails to start properly after installing a new software application, there may be conflicts with the application if it loads during startup. To resolve the problem, it may be necessary to use the System Configuration Utility to remove the application from Windows startup, or to change the startup sequence.
1. Start Windows in the Safe Mode as follows:
- Remove any disks or CDs, and disconnect any external devices or peripherals.
- Press and hold the Power button for 15 seconds to turn off the computer.
- Press the Power button to turn on the computer.
- Press the F8 key repeatedly when the first screen appears.
- From the Windows Start-up menu, select Safe Mode and click ENTER .
The computer may run slower in Safe Mode and the desktop will not look as nice due to reduced colors.
2. Click Start , click Run , type MSCONFIG , then click OK .
3. On the System Configuration Utility window, on the General tab, select Selective Startup option, and unselect the Load Startup Items .
4. Click OK and then click Restart .
The computer should restart and operate properly even without loading any of the startup items. Most startup items are helpful utilities that run in the background or sit in the system tray until they are needed.
- If the computer does not restart and operate properly, there is a more severe problem and performing the method for reinstalling the Windows OS may be necessary.
- If the computer restarts properly, examine and enable the entries under the startup tab.
