Hp dx2200 computer won't power off

If your HP computer refuses to power down, this means that there are still programs open that Windows can't close. Normally when you select the "Shut Down" button from your "Start" menu, Windows closes all open programs, then closes itself, and your basic input/output system (BIOS) turns off all of your hardware. If Windows can't close all open programs, your computer won't be able to power off. This means that you must close these programs yourself.

Right-click on the window of an open program on your Windows taskbar (Bottom of Screen) Click "Close Window." Windows manually closes the program. If a window appears on-screen indicating that Windows cannot get the program to close, click the "Force Close" button in this window to have Windows force the program to shut down. Repeat "Step 1" for any additional programs that are open on your computer. Click "Start." Click "Shut Down." Hope this helps.

I dropped it and now it won't work. It starts but there is a knocking noise and won't select movies or do anything.

Remove media player from CPU ("Add and remove Programs" or "Programs and Features" both under control panel), then Google Windows Media Player, free down, if that doesn't work, its most likely a hardware issue. Hope it works!! :)

When I try to install the program, it says that I may to use a 32-bit system. I have Windows 7, 64-bit. Does this mean that the game won't work on my computer?

Maybe so. As alot of programs and software still recognizes windows xp and not windows 7. I have encountered alot of similar problems with windows 7 and the same program runs well with windows xp.

Hi. We need to restore the entire pc - it is a Compaq C300 how do we do it? We have backed up all the files

Click the "Start" buttonon the XP system tray, then > All Programs > Accessories > SystemsTools > System Restore. Choose this item on the list: Restore My Computer ToAn Earlier Time. Click "Next".
On the dialog window, there is acalendar of the current month. Look for the highlighted days in the currentmonth, those are days with a restoring point. Click a date, the restore pointscreated on that day will appear on a list.

Click the restore point on the listfor that day, to which you want to return your system. Click "Next".

A warning message will remind you toclose all programs currently in use before proceeding. Click "OK"after you manually stop other programs running on your computer.

For your confirmation, SystemRestore displays the time, date, and brief description of the restore point youchose for returning your system. If correct, click "Next".

The restoration process will takeseveral minutes, plus restarting Windows. You will see the System Restorereporting window, reporting the restoring status when Windows XP is runningagain.

Click "OK" on the SystemRestore reporting window to finish task, if it says the restoration wassuccessful. Your system is now restored to the previous point of your choice,and should be working faster.

Your problem is a little hard to say. Have there been any power outtages or has you computer been powered-off rather than the regular shut-down procedure. Windows registry and programs can be thus corrupted.

Also computer viruses can disrupt programs so please run for example
Mcafee's free online anti-virus to rule-out a virus problem.

Even if you have an anti-virus installed, it needs to be running the latest virus definitions.

You could also try in programs accesories system tools to select "system restore" and bring back your computer to a date where you understand the problem was not happening. (Try this one last)

I have Window Vista on a HP conputer. I have 3 companies on Quick Books. Turned off the computer on Friday working fine. Turn back on Sat evening and the computer message was all programs lost reboot...

if you reformatted the drive the data was on (as well as where the backup was (don't backup data from one hard drive to the SAME hard drive)), then all hope isn't lost.  go to and look for file restoring programs.  a number of them are free and can recover data on hard drives as long as their sectors haven't been rewritten.

My computer will turn on - the windows bar shows and then the screen turns black. How can I fix this problem. I had early erased some programs from my computer but I didn't think that this should cause any...

If you leave the computer it will eventually boot up, but something is causing the delay. Why not try booting in safe mode by pressing F8 as it boots and restore it to an earlier time when you know everything was working okay. Sometimes when programs are uninstalled they can take files that other programs rely on. Try restoring by pressing F8 on boot entering safe mode, go to start>programs>accessories>system tool>system restore and choose a date when you know that the computer was working okay with no problems.

I hope this helps

Webroot Spyware Question

Hi kn21_83

Your SpySweeper program functions by viewing incoming programs requesting access to your computer, referencing them to a built-in definitions file that updates regularly, and granting permission or red-flagging potential spyware programs. So, the definitions file is very important for the program to work properly.

I recently had a customer's computer display the same error message, and the way I was able to work-around it and make the SpySweeper program work properly was to uninstall it completely, ensure that there are no other anti-virus programs that might interfere with SpySweeper's install (if you have norton for example, manualy disable it for the duration of the install), and download the most current version from the internet rather than your disks that came with it.

Now, there could be other things involved, such as a malicious program interfering with how SpySweeper functions. In that scenario, restoring your OS is usually the fastest method of restoring functionality to your machine. Hopefully it is not a virus infection, but if you run out of ideas to resolve the issue a restore is a simple fix that guarantees success.
