    My brand new acer desktop crashed, and someone told me it was called the "blue screen of death". I took it in to have it scanned by geek squad and they said that it was a software problem with Vista. How do I go about getting the software myself and is it covered through acer since the computer was only purchased in February and crashed in march.

Boot from original cd's, then choose repair, that way you wont lose your documents, if you do a re-install you will be prompted to format harddrive and will lose every thing.

My samsung rv510 laptop has crashed and ive tried to use samsung recovery but its saying operating system not found

Have you deleted or changed settings for the Recovery Partition on your hard drive ?

You should retry Recovery a few times to make sure.
If not, then you will probably have to reinstall your operating system. Before you do, you can remove the harddrive (some models are easy, other require disassembling) and plug it into another computer to extract your data (providing the HD is functional).

If you provide more details on the "crash" or error messages you get on startup, maybe we can get it going without having to reinstall your Operating System.

Just bought a brand new toshiba L635-3104 and within 3 days i'ts crashed 5 times. please?

My first suggestion would be to reinstall the operating system. New computers these days have a ton of bloat ware that can slowdown your computer and quite possible cause it to crash. I would reinstall the operating system, perform all system updates and make sure you have a good antivirus like AVG or Avast, which are both free. If the crashes continue then it could be a hardware issue and I would take it back to where you got it from and have them look at it or exchange it for another one.
Good luck.

As soon as turn computer on it says operating system not found -- i can get it to go to one other thing and it ask for HDD user password which i have no earthly idea what it can be

1. i hope you have backed up of all your data from the HDD.
2. format the HDD and reload the OS - but this time, make sure that you have atleast 2 partitions.
3. keep all your important in the second (non-system) partition.
4.after you have reloaded the OS, please get a good anti-virus and anti-spyware application and scan your computer regularly with them.

Emachine computer. hard drive crashed

If the hard drive on your computer crashed what will be your next step here is to reinstall back to your computer including the operating system, but you can also try doing a system recovery if you have a recovery disc and run it and there you will see a option to do a recovery on your system. But if you also have a recovery disc for it you can also use that in recovering the computer.
