Computer freezing When I plug in any device (digital camera, ipod, cd writer, etc) into a usb port my entire notebook freezes. Can't ctrl alt del or anything. This has been a problem now for a couple of weeks. Not sure if my usb's are shot or they need to be upgraded or what. I bought my notebook only 2 years ago. What do you think? Thank you

I have a frozen acer travelmate netbook that had frozen drive d and c. whenever i open my laptop, it freezes after displaying windows xp. i tried using ctrl+alt+del / ctrl+alt+shift / ctrl+shift+esc but...


sounds lile your Windows operating system or hard drive has become corrupted or damaged. Try to repair Windows or reinstall it using an external optical drive and your Windows CD or restore/recovery CD. If might also be necessary to fully reformat the hard drive and reinstall Windows. If that still fails, it might indicate a failing hard drive

First freeze, then boot slow, then boot "PBR 2 ...done, then disk read error Ctrl Alt Del to contine..., now no screen at boot up....fried???


Hello,

The problem is with the corrupted boot files .In my opinion you have one solution
Steps for solution

1. Download an operating system called ' Linux mint ' which can be installed in the pen drive having minimum 4 gb capacity . Using this operating system you can access the computer .

2. Copy the file and folders to an external storage device (external hard disk, pen drive etc..)

3. Reinstall the operating system ( XP,Vista ,Window 7,Ubuntu etc )

Hope you be successful

Keeps freezing


Sounds like motherboard problems, but not 100% pointing to that. If you have the knowledge to do so - run a linux boot cd (can be found on a lot of PC magazine DVDs) and see if it crashes with that as well.

Other things to check are the heat your laptop is outputting, check for any burning smells from where the airflow comes out of the laptop, check that your power cable for the laptop is not faulty.

This is a pretty indefined problem as there are many factors that could cause this. Hope I helped.

Ctrl + Alt+Del


Hi

is it a usb keyboard or a ps2(round connector) keyboard? the problem is most likely that due to the computer not having started up properly the keyboard is not properly configured / installed by windows.

to get rid of this problem, you need the old type of keyboard, turn off the computer, and plug in a keyboard to the ps2 connector.

green one is for the mouse, the other is for the keyboard, plug in a keyboard, then turn the computer on, you should be able to press CTRL+ALT +DEL now and ones you sign in to the computer it should install the usb keyboard and it should work from now on, just make sure the keyboard is not disconnected or port changed when the power is off from the computer that cause the configuration loss.

A disk read error occurred. the comp. said press ctrl+alt+del


The computer cannot find the operating system, the disk error message means it cannot find the hard disk, you most likely have a faulty hard disk or less likely a faulty disk controller.

You can test the hard disk by removing it and connecting it to a USB hard drive adapter and plug it into a working computer's USB port. If this computer cannot detect this drive as an external drive then you will know your hard drive is faulty ad you need to buy a new one and install Windows and programs etc..
