Hi jfb1407, your windows files are corrupted. Please reinstall your windows operating system. Load your windows CD in to your cdrom drive. As your PC begins to start up press the F8 key every 2 seconds until window boot menu loads. Using your keyboards up & down arrow keys move to highlite your cdrom drive & press enter. Windows should begain to load. You wil see on your screen, Press any key to start from CD...... Press any key. Windows will begin to load, follow the on screen instructions. You want to repair windows. Do not try to recover windows (it will fail). All your personal data will not be erased. Some other programs might need to be re-installed. (not a big deal). When windows has finished you'll need to update windows through, Windows update.

Good Luck & take your time.

Mike

It's probably caused by your CPU overheating, there's a protective device designed to protect your PC if the CPU gets too hot. You could try gently brushing the dust around the fan, while using a vacum cleaner to suck in the dust. If that does'nt work you need to disconnect the fan from the CPU and put a very thin and even film of heat sink. Running temperature is approx. 45c/113f

Resized c drive, now windows won't start. How can I reinstall windows from windows disc


Hi Terrez,
  1. To reinstall windows from Windows disk Insert the disk in the drive, restart the computer and enter the BIOS setup.
  2. In BIOS setup, make the DVD Drive the first-starting device.

Netbook turns on blue screen appears but doesn't give enough time to read what it says and then restarts continuously


Hi there!
You can follow this simple steps so that you can determine the exact blue screen error that you are getting.
Start the computer and keep pressing the F8 key. It will lead you to Windows Advanced Option Menu (see picture):

highlight Disable automatic restart on system failure and press the enter key. It will restart the computer and will stop on the blue screen error instead of restarting your computer.
Hope this helps.

My pc will restart itself ..... but when i play games it wont restart ...i already turn off auto restart.... change the power supply to 500watts... but when i surf the net it will restart suddenly but...


Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they are probably old and faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

hope this helps

Are you running Window XP? Is your computer set to hibernate? If so, you may have a hibernation error...

If I understand correctly, while pressing F8 during bootup you received a message that states:
"System restart has been paused:
Continue with system restart.
Delete restoration data and proceed to system boot menu"

You may wish to read this article about the error. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/294427

Then, go ahead and do that second option. What hibernate does is write a big file to the HD with the exact state of Windows. That is a "restoration" file. If hibernate doesn't work, deleting the restoration file will often allow the computer to restart normally.


Good luck! Please post back with your results.

Won't sweep


you may need to manually update the program by going to the Options tab and click Update. If you receive a dialog box stating, "Continue, Shut Down, Restart Program" or something of the sort, click Continue using Program and it will update the definitions. then restart computer and sweep. If this doesn't work then your program may need to be reinstalled with a valid subscription key.

Scanner comes on automatically at computer startup


I would suspect that you have something else attached to your computer that is causing the scanner to react.

Disconnect the USB cable from the scanner and restart the computer. After the computer has fully restarted, connect the USB cable to the scanner. The scanner may initialize at this point. If after 30 seconds the scanner continues to cycle as you described, the that is an indication that there is something that is actively pinging the USB ports causing the scanner to react. If the scanner doesn't continue cycling, then reboot the computer and see if it does it again upon bootup.

Assuming that the scanner continues recycling:
Disconnect all USB devices (except the scanner) from the computer and then restart. If the problem goes away, then one of those devices is the culprit. Connect them one at a time, rebooting each time, to determine which devices is causing the problem. Once you determine the cause, then you'll know where to go for help.

Hope this helps.
