My computer fell off a table


Since your computer fell off a table this is definately a hardware problem, something might have shifted inside and in this case I would not recommend that you open it to see what shifted.
I would recommend that you take it to a repair store for them to pull it and fix it for you. Sorry to hear.

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)

No, you need to take it to a tech, or get a replacement phone. Kinda sucks, but that's the only way to do it. If you have insurance you may be in luck to get a replacement for free.

Hard drives can make a little noise when you shake it gently, but to hear clicking sounds when it's running is not a good sign. I dropped a brand new 120 gig hdd for a customers lap top right outside the store. It made noise when I shook it "carefully" but nothing installed. NOTHING..... Tested it. It was dead. Since you say it's an external see if all inside is connected tightly.

Can't open files copied to my Seagate Free Agent Go


Ok, install Office onto your laptop and see how it goes. Don't be too panic striken Microsft in general allow one copy of the same program to be running on a desktop and a laptop at the same time on the same license.
It's a home/work thing, Laptop goes to work, desktop stays at home and you can't be using them both right =)
