Hello,
As a PC Technician by day, and avid question answerer by night my best guess is a hardware issue. It could be anything from faulty memory, to a loose power plug in the back of your case. You will probably want to get the machine looked at, but my money is on a Power Supply/Memory issue.

If the screen goes blue before it goes black, it is definitely a memory issue which is a cheap fix. If not you will want a technician to run a diagnostic. Before you do anything else though, you should run a virus scan (included in link) and look behind your case to make sure all of your connections are tight.

If you want to test the memory yourself you can also run a MemTest. (second link)

If you are really feelin' frisky you can run chkdsk from windows. This will ensure that your installation of windows and harddrive are ok. Just press "Windows Key + R" to bring up a run box and type chkdsk. Pretty straight forward!

How do you disable a pop blocker


Pop-ups are web pages that automatically open when clicking on a weblink; they may or may not be related to the site you are attempting to view.
Most often pop-ups are unwanted advertisements and other forms of spam, which is the reason pop-up blockers exist: to keep unwanted images and sites from interfering with normal Internet browsing.
Sometimes pop-up blockers will block sites and pages that you may want to view, in which case you may want to disable your pop-up blocker.

Create the Menu tab.
Right click in the top section on your homepage select the Menu option this will add File Edit View Tools and Help to the top of your homepage
Click the Tools menu.
Scroll down to "Pop-up blocker."

Select, "Turn off popup blocker."
Disable Pop-up Blocking in Firefox
Select the Tools, menu and click "Options."
Click the Content tab.
Uncheck the box labeled "Block pop-up windows," then click "OK."
Disable Stand Alone Pop-up Blockers
Press "Control," "Alt" and "Delete" simultaneously to bring up the Task Manager.
Find your pop-up blocker program and highlight it, under the Processes tab.
Select "End process."

How do I remove unwanted pop ups?


Internet pop-ups can be an annoyance. These windows are usually associated with different forms of advertisements and at times can include viruses that can infect the computer. Pop-ups do not have to be a part of computer use if the user does not desire this distraction. There are ways to stop pop-ups and prevent them from appearing unless desired. Pop-up blocker allows the user to block these items and select which items to allow.

Open Internet Explorer. Click "Tools" from the menu bar. Tools can be found on the bar that lists "File, Edit, View, Favorites, Tools, Help" directly beneath the address bar. Click "Internet Options" from the "Tools" menu. Click the "Privacy" tab in the "Internet Options" box. Click to check the box that says "Turn on pop-up blocker" in the "Pop-up Blocker" section of the menu. Click "Apply" to save changes. Click "OK" to close the "Internet Options" box. The computer will now block all pop-ups from websites. If downloading items from the Web, the computer will ask whether you would like to allow these items to be opened. Hope this helps.

Computer keeps shuting down. GATEWAY desktop mod# Lx6810-01, ser# ptg590x00190910c3e2700 less than 2 yr old


Hello,

Most likely this is an overheating situation.
If your CPU is running at over 60 degrees you might be at risk of burning it out. Some systems shut down automatically when the temperature reaches an unsafe level.

Every few weeks I open my system unit and clean the fins on the heat sink that sits under the CPU. When they collect dust it restricts the airflow and prevents proper cooling. I just did that on my system and the CPU temperature dropped by ten degrees!


If you determine that overheating is not the problem, the most likely suspect is bad memory. The best way to find the culprit is to pop open the system unit, remove (or replace) one RAM stick and see if the problem is solved. Run your system for a while and if the problem goes away, you win!
If not. lather, rinse and repeat for each RAM stick until you find the one that's misbehaving.

My player(hdd1830/17)is not booting and not shuting down?


Reset ti first, and see how it behaves. If that fails:
Triple Reset for Philips’ GoGear:

Disconnect the Go Gear from computer. Press the reset pinhole until the player turns off. Hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard. If this pop-up does not appear, reset the player again WHILE connected to the computer. Open the Philips Device Manager, and go to Repair Tab. Reset the player one more time while connected to computer. Follow the repair instructions.

After repair is complete, upgrade the firmware for this player. Will erase all the songs, but you should be good to go again.

My acer aspire 3105WLMi windows Vista Basic keyboard keeps missing random letters as i type..even now! my laptop is 6 months old and constantly runs via the plug into the wall which then runs to the...


First Things first. Un-install the software that you installed immediately as while you are Internet Banking a pop-up is a security threat and It is not a security pop up mind it.

Regarding the keyboard missing the letters. Please follow the following :

In control Panel go to Keyboard settings and move the repeat delay & repeat rate to a slower setting.

2nd Option

open a Word processor and type in ABC to Z & All the combinations of the same & special characters using shift. Repeat this 2-3 times. If same letters are missing it means that the keyboard has a problem and needs disassembly & cleaning.
