    scratch that website, they just want to infect your machine. uninstall and reinstall all your mcafee products, and do a malware/virus scan at trendmicro.com (free housecall)

Tip

Disk drive may be failing or my disk won't boot


Many times before a hard drive goes completely bad there are tell tale signs. If you can recognize them, there is a good chance that the data on the drive can be saved. The window of time in which action will be useful is quite small. Other than trying to fix the problem do not use the failing computer disk as you can just make the problem worse. <br /> What are the signs to look out for? While there are few surefire signs of impending disk failure there are some warning signals that give us the hint. Watch out for: disappearing files, very long wait while accessing files, files/folders whose contents appear to be strangely scrambled, reoccurring error messages while moving/copying/deleting/creating files, and strange but frequent crashes of your OS. If your computer will not boot saying that it cannot find the boot disk or other messages similar, the boot sector may be corrupt. <br /> Another telltale sign is any loud, low, irregular, clicking, or grinding sound which is emitted from the drive. This is the worst problem as your data and the disk are almost gone. <br /> What to do? Download on a friends computer and create a bootable CD from one of these manufactures:<a href="http://www.seagate.com/ww/v/index.jsp?locale=en-US&name=seatooldreg&vgnextoid=480bd20cacdec010VgnVCM100000dd04090aRCRD"> Seatools</a> from Seagate,<span> the <span><a href="http://support.wdc.com/download/dlg/Diag504fCD.iso">Data Lifeguard tools</a></span> from Western Digital or <a href="http://www.hitachigst.com/support/downloads/">Drive Fitness Tool</a> from Hitachi.</span> <br /> <ul> <li>You must use a CD burning program (such as Nero Burning Rom or EZ-CD Creator) to burn a CD from the .ISO image.</li></ul> <br /> Using the CD, boot the problem system. Make sure the BIOS is set to boot from the CD drive first, not the hard disk. Follow the manufactures instructions to test your disk. Do not let the program write all zeros to the disk or format the disk as you will loose all your data. <br /> With luck, the program will repair any corrupt indexes. <br /> Remove the CD and attempt to do a normal boot. If you can then boot into your desktop, immediately backup any data as the fix may be short lived. <br /> If you don't have a CD drive, then you'll need to try using a bootable USB which is another topic.

Need help my desk top monitor is showing a sign flashing saying no signal detected need to see how to fix or what might be the issue with desk top


This is the message shown when you power off your computer but you leave the monitor on. If your PC is on but you still see this message then it is a video problem. It could be as simple as a loose connection somewhere in your video cable (either where it plugs into the monitor or where it plugs into the PC). It could also be the monitor-many have different input modes and maybe the input mode changed somehow. Then again something could be wrong with the video card-are components loose on it? Check all of these, in that order (easiest to hardest), and I think you will have found the problem.

Hope this helps.

The volume went out and I had the problem fixed by a computer techinian. He commented that he had to reinstall the driver. The volume was working fine then all of sudden it has stopped working again. ...


Right click on the MY Computer listing on the start column. Now click on properties, then click on the hardware tab. Now click on the Device Manager button. In this list under Sound there my be a yellow sign w an exclamation point in it. click on this sign and read to see if the device is working. If not, then try to reinstall the driver as the message says. Reboot the machine. if the problem goes away so be it. If not, then the problem is more serious and will probably tech work. Check back with the Tech and see if all he did was reinstall the driver. If yes, then it seems that a recent program installed or something else has messed with or is still messing with the driver or it's the wrong driver period. Also the sound card section of the MB could be defective. If all else fails, all I can recommend is you try to reinstall windows or have the tech fix it again and get a serious answer to what the problem was and how he fixed it. He should have told you in the first place.

Stop message


First off, this may be a sign the drive is failing (Not 100% though).

Second you will need your windows cd to try to fix the issue.
You will need to boot into recovery console, and at the prompt use
fixboot and fixmbr, try to restart and see if the computer start up correctly.

Installation of printer


I am not on my XP machine but you may have set a value requiring all drivers (software) to be digitally signed. Check HELP and go to where it tells you to uncheck the box. Requiring everything to be digitally signed (Microsoft's dream) will cause you other problems downstream. Hope this helps....Tango
