    Wow! Lots of information.Thanks!

    .Running win XP MCE .. I did a complete reinstall twice useing my Gateway 5076E OS install disc.



    It continues to tell me I have NO audio card installed or it is in use elsewhere. I am the only person who uses this PC. Hve been searcing relentlessly for a "fix" for the audio card but no scans "recognize" it therefore NO Fix.



    I'll try the signing on with a different user name as I have a couple and see what happens..

    If those "little grey cells" (Hercule Poiret) of yours come up with anything elsee pleawe advise. I do respect your help.

    Thanks

Please remember to always note Computer specifications and Operating system details when you post a problem and to explain your problem in more detail.

OK. I think I have just the solution for you and also a few questions ? Did you successfully remove the Virus from your machine ? Did you disable system restore while doing the scan ? Did you scan in safe mode ? Did you scan your HDD on a different, virus scan dedicated machine ? You'll most probably have a "NO" to all of these questions right ?

In the case of a Virus infection I would most likely disconnect the Hard drive from the machine, scan it on another machine ( using AVG7 + AVGAS = AVG Antivirus and AVG Anti Spyware Scan) remembering to turn off system restore while scanning on the drive and scanning in safe mode.

If you have successfully found and removed the virus infection, remember to delete your system volume information and recycler folder on the drive. virus files tend to infect these folders.

Before you plug in your HDD into your machine again, you might want to do a ackup of your data, then either do a Windows repair or a Windows Fresh installation (Formating the entire HDD); The repair will attampt to fix the issues that the virus has caused and the fresh install you'll be sure that everything WILL work after installation OR use the Windows repair option AND a registry repair tool to repair registry items. Another option would be to create a new user name. The settings in that new accound should be working fine and you should be able to access the start menu and your folders again.

    I'm not very "handy" with the OS CD you described earlier: Let me give you an similiar example:



    Acer also has "OS" CD (Acer recovery CD's). Same with Dell. Some of the recovery CD's clients make or get don't work properly. The issue has been there for a while; however, only in some rare cases.



    What "we" do in a situation like that is to firstly make a complete backup of the system. Then "we" format (or low-level) format the HDD and use a OEM XP CD meaning it only contains the CORE Windows XP files and no "third party vendor data" like for example Acer data or Dell data. "we" then, after the installation is complete, "extract/use/import/grab" the drivers from the backup. If there is a driver that is unknown, or that was not in the backup, "we" use >>>this<<< software. With the program "we" are able to find out exactly which driver is needed by the system. Then, "we" simply download the driver by going onto the vendors website. All that info "we" "pull" from that program for driver details.

    To summarize:




    1. SCAN (+REMOVE) YOUR HDD OFFLINE FOR VIRUSES as mentioned with the techique above

    2. backup all your data

    3. Format your HDD

    4. Install Windows XP MCE OEM (plain simple XP MCE

    5. Install drivers from backup ( *.inf files found in backup\windows\inf, *.dll files found in backup\windows\system32, *.sys files found in backup\windows\system32\drivers, *.exe and cpl files found in backup\windows\ [[[basically most of the drivers are found in the backup\windows\ folder

    6. Download UnknownDevices

    7. Use unknown devices to find information about which driver is still needed or UNKNOWN to the system

    8. DONE

    Kind Regards,

    Stef

Reset windows admin password


when computer boots you can click the Setup key(PF2) when it flashes during startup. sometimes you can get access or if you can get into DOS you can search for the files but not likely these days. these days you can save the password to flash drive in case lost or forgotten. if you have a pc but cannot use it because you did not own it or password unknown, you should restore the pc to manufacture default. without disks(restore) you have to have a Windows Operating system(XP, Vista, 7 or 8) and reinstall the operating system. this will make you format hard drive or put on different partition. All other files that were on pc will be wiped out and it will be like having a new pc.
it will take hours to restore if it is an older pc because all updates will have to be done too. good luck

Computer turns on but will not load windows. Freezes after gateway comes on. Plus cannot start in safemode


Enter the BIOS and ensure that the Hard drive is indeed being seen by the computer.

Open up the chassis side panel and ensure that all conections are making contact.

I turn on the Gateway and the words Gateway come on screen, then it goes black. The keyboard is on then off then comes on again, Screen remains black.


You have a problem with the operating system. It has crashed. You will need to reinstall the operating system in your computer. Before you do that you need to back up your file in your hard drive.To do that you need a 2nd computer get a hard-drive closure external take out the hard drive of your gateway. and plug it in to the external closure and plug it in the computer and explorer and move the files you need to the other computer. After that put the hard drive back into the gate

Your computer came with a recovery disc. Use that to reinstall your computer and software. That will help your problem. Update your computer to make sure it doesn't fail again.

Both ETHERNET CONTROLLER AND usb DEVICE DRIVERS ARE MISSING AFETR FULL REINSTALL OF COMPUTER TO KILL VIRUS


you will have to use another computer to download the drivers but HERE is the link for your model PC. remember to select the correct operating system. It may be best just to download the network driver first then run windows update. Often the windows update will find missing hardware drivers and let you install them instead if having to go look for them.

How do I fix the dcom server launcher, the computer keeps shutting down after it's been on for about five minutes?


Click Here to Download this program (its free). Install it. Update it. Run a FULL scan of your computer (took about 30 minutes and the viruses didn't pop up until the very end of the scan). Delete ALL of them (note: you have to reboot to delete the ones in windows system 32) There will be a list of about 5-10 infections they should be similar to:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\tdssdata (Trojan.Agent)

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\tdss (Trojan.Agent)

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\Tcpip\Parameters\NameServer (Trojan.DNSChanger)

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\T cpip\Parameters\NameServer (Trojan.DNSChanger)

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet003\Services\T cpip\Parameters\NameServer (Trojan.DNSChanger)

C:\WINDOWS\system32\tdssadw.dll (Trojan.Agent)

C:\WINDOWS\system32\tdssl.dll (Trojan.Agent)

C:\WINDOWS\system32\tdssserf.dll (Trojan.Agent)

C:\WINDOWS\system32\tdssmain.dll (Trojan.Agent)

C:\WINDOWS\system32\tdssinit.dll (Trojan.Agent)

C:\WINDOWS\system32\tdsslog.dll (Trojan.Agent)

C:\WINDOWS\system32\tdssservers.dat (Trojan.Agent)

C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\tdssserv.sys (Trojan.Agent)

I need to reinstall XP media center on my Gateway PC


If you know somebody that has the same operating system disc (Windows XP Media Center Edition) you can use their CD to reinstall Windows and just use your product code number on your PC box.

Explore.exe, application error, memory could not be written


this is probably relating to explorer which is your desktop display for a specific programme. Explore as you say, or do you mean internet explorer, if so download updates for windows. It could also refer to a virus, so when you reinstalled did the recovery cd format the drive first then install or just install over the top of the original installation. If it did format first then it will not be virus. The system crash will be because the system is probably using up all the remaining memory.
