Computer pop ups?


Not the most descriptive problem.

So lets guess, me thinks when you are using a internet browser program to access web sites like www.fixya.com?? Then at random times additional browser windows pop up trying to sell something etc.

Most likely your PC is infected. Stop using Internet Explorer (IE) and use Chrome/Firefox. Then with in your new browser add the extension/plugin Ad Block or Ad Block Plus both are free.

Then head on over to www.filehippo.com and download ccleaner and marlwarebytes. Install one at a time, malwarebytes first. Have it update and then select full scan/ Come back in a few hours and check all the little boxes it found problems on.

Turn off pop up blocker


Surfing the Internet and constantly being bombarded with pop-up ads can be extremely annoying. For this reason, most computer users enable a pop-up blocker.
Occasionally, however, you run across a website that offers information that you need and it is blocked by the pop-up blocker.
When this happens you need to disable the pop-up blocker. You can disable the pop-up blocker for all websites or just for specific ones.

Launch Internet Explorer.
Click on the "Tools" drop-down menu.

Scroll down, click "Pop-up Blocker" and choose "Turn Off Pop-Up Blocker."


Turn off pop-ups for specific sites by completing steps 1 and 2.
Then, instead of choosing to turn off pop-ups, choose "Pop-Up Blocker Settings."
Add sites to block or remove sites from the list that are being blocked.

Turn Off Pop-Ups Blocker in Toolbars

Even though you may have your pop-ups turned off in Internet Explorer, if you have a toolbar installed on your computer it can still block pop-ups.
The most commonly installed toolbars are the Yahoo toolbar and Google toolbar.


Click on the drop-down menu next to the pop-up blocker button to disable the pop-up blocker in the Yahoo toolbar. Select "Disable pop-up blocker."


Click the "Options" button on the Google toolbar. In "Accessories," clear the box next to the pop-up blocker option.

How do I turn OFFG pop up blocker?


If this is an AOL supplied pop up blocker try the steps below.

Try looking at the top of your aol browser for something like tools or settings. Search inside them for the popup blocker. You can also just type popup blocker in aol's help to find out how to turn it off.

If this is an Internet Explorer pop up blocker, try the steps below:

Turn off the pop up blocker in the Internet Options in the control panel. Click Start/Control Panel/Internet Options or Start/Control Panel/Network and Sharing. Look for Internet Options. If you have the menu bar at the top of your browser just click Tools/Internet Options. When Internet Options opens click the Privacy tab and look down towards the bottom and remove the check mark from Turn On Popup Blocker the click Apply/OK.

If you have google toolbar at the top of your browser it has a pop up blocker also. So you can turn it off by clicking where it says Blocked, then it will allow popups from that website.

Everything has been working okay on this compaq until this morning. Upon powering up a Red and White HP screen pops up that turns into a black screen which reads quite simply: "Disk Boot...


The computer could not read your copy of Windows from your disk-drive.

Either:
* there is no electrical power getting to the disk-drive (check the power cable)
* the "data" cable between the motherboard and the disk-drive is faulty or not-connected (check it)
* the power-supply in your computer is not supplying power to the disk-drive (try different power-supply)
* the disk-drive itself has "failed" (maybe, the motor that spins the disk-drive has failed)

Take your computer to a professional technician for trouble-shooting.

When i turn my coputer on it turns on then shuts off constantly?


This could be caused by 1 of 3 things. 1. Your power supply is failing and needs to be replaced 2. Your computer is overheating or thinks it is 3. Your power button could be sticking
The last one is the easiest to check. -when you press the power button does it stay in or does it pop out as normal. If it pops out move on
Heating issue -Remove the size cover and check for excessive dirt build up --If yes, use canned air (do not hold can at an angle as it may cause the propelling liquid to come out and damage components) -When you power on the computer look inside does the fan mounted on a big circuit board (motherboard) spin --If it does not the fan may not be plugged in all the way or just bad and you will need to replace it -Check the BIOS, a lot of BIOS will show you the computer temp --This will be accesses from the first screen you see with text (Usually Award or Phoenix BIOS)
If you have tried all this I would replace the power supply -You can buy them from Best Buy for about $40 and return if it is not the issue. Here is a nice guide on how to install power supply http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/362

Solid Amber light when starting the Inspiron 530 . Every time i start the Dell inspiron 530, the solid amber light comes on and it dont start. As per Dell user manual i have tried everything but of no use....


Amber led simplifies a start-up-error. This could be a number of things.

For example:

Check if HDD is connected properly

Check if RAM is connected properly / also if this is damaged your pc wont start.

Check your m/board for any loose capacitors an if they are not popped at the top.

Your LCD screen is properly plugged in to the m/board and if the cables aren't damaged they are very thin and fragile.
also could be the power supply...

Goodluck

Compaq presario power supply


You probably need a new power supply. Check the capacitors inside the power supply, they're probably popped. If they're not popped, bring it to a computer repair shop and have them test it. Your board could be bad, too.

Turn on acer aspire an the acer sign pops up then the login place pops up for a quick second then screen goes blank


I would try getting the power supply checked first. Also if the fans are working. If fans aren't working the pc will shut down as a default safety feature.
It could be a corrupt mbr (master boot record). If the fans are working try placing your pc on some books to allow complete air flow and point a house fan on it. See if it stays on longer. Then you'll know if its an overheating issue which it sounds like it. But doesn't mean it is! Let me know if you don't make any progress on this if you want to and we go from there.
