As per the issue I would suggest you to restore the computer back to factory default,to do so, follow the below steps: Turn Off the computer, now as soon as you hit the power button, keep on holding "Alt" key & keep on tapping "F10" key, i.e Alt+f10, it will open the recovery console, select full factory restore and follow onscreen instruction. NOTE: This will erase all the datas on the computer.

My PC go to Windows xp, then goes to a window with it did not start succesfully. I have tried every mode, last know configuration, and it wont get past that. Just keeps restarting


how about putting the boot up disk in that came with the computer and then trying it as this give it the drivers it needs ,what has happened is you have got a wormy thing and then your antivirus has cleared it but in the process its damaged the registry which is what these trojan worm things do so in effect destroying your computer ,connect hard drive as a slave in another computer and save what bits you want to a external hard drive then re-install windows with you boot up disk ,yes i know from this you can install windows and leave existing files in place but this wormy thingy could reinstall itself from these files ,Or just download a copy of linux from sourceforge.net for free and and use this as its less susceptable to bugs and works just like windows from a operators point of view ,then any windows programmes you use but they will not work with linux just look on the same website for linux programmes and you download for free .

It seems that your spouse downloaded a "trojan" -- software that claimed to scan, but itself is a computer-virus.

First thing to do is to download and run a decent anti-virus and anti-spyware program. The best free ones at the moment are AVGfree and AVGAS which are available for download from; http://www.free.grisoft.com/ Download the 2 programs, install them, update them, and then run a full system scan - first with the anti-virus then with the anti-spyware program. Hopefully they will find and deal with your trojan. Please ask again if you need more info, the AVG programs are very clear and simple to use :)

acer aspire 5335-2257 replaced 4 pin power jack intermittent power, only runs with battery but barely charges. acer aspire 5335-2238. My son's friend recently asked me to take a look at his laptop because he couldn't get it to take a charge or run without the battery when plugged in. Right away I noticed the dc jack was charred and the plastic around it melted. He said the power cord "brick" got really hot, all the way to the tip where it plugs into the laptop. I know the bricks can get warm but he said it actually burned his sister. I ended up replacing the dc jack and 4 pin harness with a new one and figured this would solve the power issue. It won't get power with the original power cord and I also tried a few others that were similar. The only one that worked was an adaptor that I think went to a cordless phone or something like. The next problem was I had to fiddle with the dc jack to get the yellow battery light on. Still won't turn on without battery. The battery at this point is drained so I left it plugged in all day, at least 12 hours and the green light finally came on indicating a charged battery. The battery only charged about 8-9% and died fast. I tried more adaptors and got another one to light up the yellow battery light, again a small modem adaptor, not one with the brick. This time I left it over night and got about 12% charge. Both times the laptop turned on, booted up and ran until the battery died after about 5 min. I'm out of ideas aside from maybe a bios problem but I can't get it to stay on long enough to do anything about it. I don't understand why the new jack isn't working, it's a pretty simple install, no soldering. I looked real close at the board and didn't see any obvious fried chips or anything like that. Any suggestions would be great. I've had this 14 year old kid's laptop for almost 2 weeks trying to figure it out (I also replaced his keyboard, disc drive and cleaned it up) and he's calling me every day.
