Boot to safe mode by tapping the F8 key on boot until you get the boot options screen, then select "Safe Mode" and then your OS selection and then click "Yes" on the pop up that should appear. Once in safe mode, run a full virus scan with you favorite Anti Virus program (hopefully updated virus definitions though), and hopefully you'll find some problems that you can solve there.

Otherwise you should look at upgrading to at least Windows XP, as Microsoft no longer supports 95,98, 98SE, or ME (at least that was the last news I got about them) and that is a serious viral vulnerability problem for PC's that are accessing the internet with these unsupported Operating Systems.

Hi,

several things to try.
1:- run disk defragmenter from start/all programs/accesories/system tools. also use disk cleanup from the same menu.
2:- remove non-essential programs from the startup menu.
3:- Add more system RAM/Memory if your motherboard will take it.

Reset button hp pavilion


Hi,
HP Pavilion not available reset button.
A hard or forced reset erases all information in the computer's memory which may restore functionality. Resetting your computer forces the system to clear and reestablish the software connections between the BIOS and the hardware.

Performing a hard or forced reset might fix the following conditions:-
Windows stops responding.
Computer stops before Windows loads - no boot, blinking cursor on a black display, and errors relating to OS not found or a missing drive.
Display suddenly goes blank and stays blank.
Software freezes.
Keyboard stops responding.
The computer does not return from sleep or suspend mode.

Thanks..

How do i get my computer to run in normal mode again? and how do I get rid of the google chrome because this problem didn't start until i downloaded it into my computer.


Once Safe Mode comes up, click Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore and select a Restore Point (date and time) that is before you downloaded and installed Google Chrome.

I seriously doubt that Google Chrome is your problem. Chrome is among the top tier as far as browsers go.

I think you've got a windows system file or boot file issue.

How much memory does your computer have? Alot of times when the temporary memory gets full everything will slow down and will cause applications to stop responding.
It can also be your hardrive is too full. The more space you use on your hardrive the slower it will go and if you fill it too full it will also make programs stop responding.

Hello! I've got a problem with my notebook Acer Aspire 5630 (OS Windows Vista Home Premium SP1): the system hangs everytime when I try to play video. And also my computer freezes after the system boot....


It sounds like there are some corrupted system files, in order for you to repair that, you will most likely have to reinstall the operating system. Next chance you get, backup all important files.
Your Acer should have came with some CD's and/or a manual. If there is a Restoration CD or a CD with Windows Vista, then put that in the CD Tray in and restart your computer. Right when the Acer screen pops up, it will tell you what key to press to get into the BIOS setup. (This might take a few tries to get).
Once in the BIOS go to the Boot Sequence/Order options and make your CD/DVD drive the first boot device if not already. Then restart(while CD is in tray). And follow the instructions!
Acer computers often have a hidden partition on the hard drive that contains the recovery/reinstall tool. Look in the manual(or Google) for the exact key, as it varies on model and year.

My toshiba Satellite M45-S265 freezes up


  • Hi, this freezing of the Computer all of a sudden can be the cause of a number of things; first have you "downloaded any new Software, Toolbars, or changed any Programs? Next check to see "How much Memory is available to you." Go to and open the Computer Properties, if there is (more Used Space than there is Free Space) than "I suggest you do a [Disk Clean-Up] from the same location. Next, when was the "Last time you preform a "Defragmentation of the files, this can slow down the Computer's performance aswell." Backing up your Data and Files is another way to free-up space; this can be perform by (Sheduling Tasks), go to the "Control Panel.' for this task. If any of these things do not apply, then the next thing I suggest is to "perform a System Restore," this will restore your computer hopefully, back to a Time or Date prior to the problem beginning. The [System Restore] can be performed from the Control Panel. "If this information to a solution was of help, rating it is appreciated, thanks
