For problem #1 you should run Disk cleanup and then Disk Defragment in the Accessories/System tools folder.

For problem #2 it sounds like helps and service is stopped or the registry is corrupt. Follow this link to fix the problem:

If you are determined to risk registry cleaning, you might try Wise Registry Cleaner, Glary's registry cleaner, or the registry cleaner in CCleaner or the commercial Advanced System Mechanic. You may use Revo Uninstaller to completely remove the programs you installed immediately before trouble emerged or resort to accessing the registry backup you created before cleaning. Many of the cleaners allow creation of such backups from within the software..

Sooner or later, registry cleaning seems to result in a "gotcha." You will be glad you had system restore points when that day happens. I try to leave registry junk alone, use portable apps to avoid installs affecting the registry, and make a restore point prior to every software installation.

How do you determine what is safe to clean? Well, Wise Registry Cleaner rather gives you a screen which suggests what is purportedly completely safe to remove by the screen colors indicating safe ones. If you have any doubts, don't remove the registry entry.

Not that the advice will keep you completely safe! Backup your critical data files to an external hard drive before engaging in too much registry tampering. As you chase performance, cleaning suites sound like a good option, right up to the point you crash, then you are chasing recovery options.

Use of Sandboxes and Virtual Drives avoid some garbage collection but that far more than you have requested to know about.

Adding ram sped up XP machines more than registry tweaks ever did.

Why did the check engine and tcl"off"lights come on after cleaning the engine and engine compartment?


The traction control system uses the computer to work by changing engine speed.
You may have gotten water inside one of the wiring connectors or harness.
You would need to have the computer scanned for trouble codes to know what to test.

Error, my computer cannot access some programs and it works very slow and get always hung.


You probably have some virus and/or malware infections. Clean up your system:
  1. Restart computer into Safe-Mode with Networking (press F5 or F8 repeatedly whilst booting)
  2. Run an online virus scan here
  3. Download, install & update Malwarebytes
  4. Run a full scan & reboot if/when asked.
  5. Clean up your system by installing and running Ccleaner
If you still have problems after cleaning up your system post back which programs you are having trouble accessing.

I need to know how to fix the black screen on my computer


Cleaning your system unit will help solve your problem. Tools are vacuum and paint brush. After cleaning.First check for the memory or system ram. Unplug and plug it again. Same procedure with your video card. If still the same with no display, clean the memory and video card pin using hard eraser to clean the moisture or dust. If you heard 1 beep with no display that means your monitor have something wrong. Because 1 beep means good or working.

When i turn my computer on, it gives two long beeps, the machine is on but the screen stays blank, as though its on sleep, what do i do?


Two long beeps is the code for memory trouble. Try removing the memory modules from their sockets. Make sure the sockets are free of dust (computers can get pretty dirty inside), using compressed air (available canned from office supply places, Wal-Mart, etc.) to blow them out if needed. Make sure the contacts on the modules are clean. You can use a pencil eraser with light pressure to clean them off. Reseat the modules firmly in their sockets. Then try restarting the computer.

If the trouble continues and you have more than one memory module in the system, try replacing them one at a time and restarting the computer to try to determine which one is causing the trouble.

If the trouble still won't go away, see if you can borrow a known good memory module from someone and try that. You might have a failed system board or multiple bad memory modules. (It can happen, and can drive you nuts when you try the "one-at-a-time" trick. I've been there!)

Hope this helps!

Acer AL1912 sometimes doesnt start


Try reseating your cable connections. While you have them off, take some compressed air and clean both the connection ports on the back of the computer and cable connections. Check to make sure there are no bent pins on the cable connectors. If you know how, you might also want to open your computer case and reseat your video card and clean your system out with the compressed air. Make sure your computer is completely shut down properly and is unplugged from the outlet when you do this and before you work inside the case make sure you touch the metal side to discharge any built up static electricity you may have so that it does not cause damage to the sensitive components inside your system. If possible you might want to take the monitor and connect it to another computer system, if it works properly on that system, more than likely it might be your video card. Hope this helps

Pc locks up


Have you rcently installed something that could be causing the issue? Without knowing exactly what happened prior to the problem, I would recommend using the Restore CD that came with your computer. That should solve you issue. It takes normally anywhere between 30 minutes to 2 hours, but it might save you time in the long run from troubleshooting. Just remember to save anything on your computer that you need that wasn't there when you got the computer to a cd or disk before you do the restore.
