You need to be more specific:

1) What type/model of PC
2) What hardware configuration
3) Which operating system

4) What are the symptoms, i.e.

how far does it get within the power up / re-boot process ?

Sony VAIO PCV-RZ54G PC Desktop keyboard errors in event viewer


The I8042prt.sys is a system function driver found in Microsoft Windows 2000 and later versions for PS/2-style keyboard and mouse devices. If I8042PRT.sys is disabled or missing from the Registry this could be the cause. First check in Device Manager, a black exclamation point (!) on a yellow field appears next to these devices?

See if you can update the driver.

Lets check your registry. Here is the key: HKEY_Local_Machine\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\ i8042prt:Imagepath=System32\Drivers\i8042prt.sys
It should be there can you check to see if it's still there? Here's how:

Click Start > Run > Type: regedit

When Registry editor opens expand local machine> system >CurrentControlSet> Services> (Scroll down till you see i8042prt and click on it.

And tell me what the data entries for Start (should be 1)

Then expand the i8042prt key and select "Parameter" tell me in detail listed for the layer drivers; exactly what you see then select "Enum" Tell me if you see a file name "1" and data: ACPI\PNP0F13\4&1506bb2e&0

We might have to enable or add the port.

I'd suggest running a repair if you have your windows installation disk or do System Restore in Safe Mode, if unable to do it in Normal Mode.

Try tapping F8 at startup, and from the list of startup selections, select Safe Mode by using UP Arrow Key to go there > then hit Enter.

Try a System Restore once there, pick a Restore Point before your problem started (if there's a restore point that goes further back prior to your malware issue I'd suggest that restore point)

Here's how to access system restore:
Click Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore > pick a different time > Next > etc

If that doesn't fix it you might have some viruses and malware.

Start your PC and press F8 several times until the boot menu comes up. Then select "Safe Mode with Networking". Now get some or ALL of the FREE programs below.

Download, Install and Run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware:
http://majorgeeks.com/download.php?det=5756
When Installing choose the non-pro version.

Download, Unzip, Install and Run TDSSKiller:
http://majorgeeks.com/Kaspersky_TDSSKiller_d6895.html

Download, Install and Run Super Anti-Spyware:
http://majorgeeks.com/SUPERAntiSpyware_d5116.html

If you have an outdated Anti-virus program then Download, Install and Run Avira Anti-Virus:
http://majorgeeks.com/Avira_AntiVir_Personal_-_FREE_Antivirus_d955.html
Make sure to select ALL of the "threat categories" when you install or configure Avira...

If none of the above works you should seriously think about switching to a USB mouse and USB keyboard. The i8042prt.sys driver is ancient and it only controls PS/2 mice and keyboards (Doesn't affect anything else).

I was cleaning my HP Compaq dx2000 mt and forgot to put on the ram chips and turned it on and it beeped 5 times and a red led flashed 5 times, I put back the ram chips and turn it on and it doesn't...


Done it myself, RAM should have booted up after reinstalling the RAM.
Need to check very close on the RAM slots and make sure the the one slot on the btton of the RAM stick is directly down into the slot guide as can be forced but end clip would not set.

If this does not solve your problem I would suggest resetting the CMOS of your computer as it may have locked it out, CMOS finds all devices installed on the mainboard and addresses them to prepare for boot.

I am sending you a link to the HP support manual page for your review for how to clear the bios and boot back up to reset the CMOS up again. You might have reset your time and Date.

Let me know if good to go or if you still cannot boot or have the "Orange" led.

Please go to the HP link below by coping and pasteing into your web browser. The LED listing and CMOS resetting is on page #2 on the right side of the Adobe PDF document..

When booting desktop doesn't load


There are a couple of quick fixes you can do.

First, boot into Safe Mode (Repeatedly tap the F8 key while the system is booting, before the windows logo appears) A Menu will pop up, press Boot Into Safe Mode. From there you can try a System Restore to a known good date.

System Restore - Click Start -> Control Panel -> On the top right, type "System Restore" without the quotes. Click on "Restore system files and settings from a restore point". You can choose the recommended restore or a specific date.

The other option is to boot into "Last Known Good Configuration". To do this, use the F8 trick again while booting, but instead of Safe Mode choose "Last Known Good Configuration".

Please note that either of these run a risk of some data being lost from the time the restore point was made. You "shouldn't" lose anything but just want to make you aware.


If this helps please give a good rating. Thanks.

May be your computer motherboard wires connection get loose or getting moisture in wires. Or there may be some earthing problem in ur power switch. First, check the wires connection & tighten up properly. if problem persists, check the earthing by power tester. Check you RAM if it is properly tight in the jack.
