This problem is common for window xp . This problem is because of currently installed software or adding new hardware that changes your Registry, If you have registry repair softwares try to use it. But reinstall /formatting is the best solution for this type of problem taking backup.

you may also use system restore to an earlier time........ will also solve your problem.....

My hp 3115m keeps rebooting. a blue screen pops up and says there was an error and my computer will restart. it keeps doing this over and over. what can I do?


chris, did you download an application or driver? If so try uninstalling it in safe mode. Blue screen is not a good sign. Re-start normally after the uninstall.

Sir my pc has automatically restart and does not worked proprely they can give the fatal error plzz helpp me


Are you getting a Blue Screen error and can't read it because the computer keeps restarting?

If So, turn off the computer, then turn it on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see Safe Mode. Scroll down past safe mode and you will see an option to Disable Automatic Restart. The next time you boot up you will be able to see the error message.

If it is a Blue Screen Of Death (BSOD) error message, you might need a system disc.

Im haveing unexpected shut downs on my laptop? and i can onl use it in safe mode. how do i fix it to regular mode with oout it shuting down again?


When you boot it up that same screen that gives you the safe mode option will probably give you an option to disable or stop restarts on boot. This will allow you to see the error message. Since you can get into safe mode try doing a System Restore to a day before the problem started. System restore does not destroy your data, docs, music, pics, or videos. System Recovery destroys everything and sets the system back to when you first purchased it. If system restore does not work you'll need a system disc to fix the blue screen by running a chkdsk /r command at the dos command line prompt. Chkdsk will run for an hour or more so be patient. If chkdsk doesn't solve it then you probably have a memory issue. I would remove one memory chip and reboot, the if you have a problem move the chip that is inside to the next slot and reboot again. If if fails on both slots for that chip, set it aside and insert the other chip and do the same thing.

My computer wont start, when I turn it on it says that my computer wasn't shut down properly and gives me the choice to start it in safe or regular mode. When I click regular, it loads up the windows XP OS...


Hi.first you proceed safe mode and check for chance of virus removal if any. other wise try to select start operation with command prompts. Once after solving in any one these options, then think about starting up computer in regular mode. with respect to your statements, the reasons for failure are either virus attack or failure of installing of system file correctly. I hope you got somewhat solution.

I need help with ibm thinkpadr40 have no idea what is going on tried somethings, blue screen keeps coming up and freezes and runs slow


If you are getting different problems at different times, they you have to start handling things slowly to exactly pin point the issue. It will be great if you can also document the error messages, when you get it, the windows version you are using etc so we can provide you more accurate steps and identify the exact issue.

First if you are using windows XP restart the computer in safe mode and try using it (if you wanted to use internet - wired) then restart the computer in safe mode networking.

Procedure to restart computer in safe mode:
Restart computer, keep tapping F8 key on the keyboard, instead of going to windows it will show up a windows advanced boot menu, where you need to use your up or down arrow key to navigate the control to Safe mode / safe mode with networking and hit enter key. this will show some commands / text on your screen and take you to safe mode.

Try using your computer in safe mode and see if your computer is giving you any error or if it freezes. If it does not give you any trouble in this mode then you computer is good, it should be the additional programs running in the normal mode that is creating the issue. we need to diagnose further to find it.

If it is freezing / gives your error message in safe mode itself, then there should be a problem with the hardware of your computer, we have to find out by eliminating the hardware one by one.

Do not worry, we can work together pin point the issue and we will help you to resolve this issue.

Hi,

Have you installed any application/program prior to the blue screen? Most blue screen causes your system not to boot to your operating system anymore. It is possible that your hard drive is crashed due to a virus infections or spywares. Incompatibility and corrupted system registry may affect your system to have blue screen as well.

You may try the following steps below.

1. Restart your computer. After you pressed the power button to restart. Keep on tapping F8 key on the keyboard on and off.

2. Boot advanced option will show up on the screen. You may boot your computer to the following option.

a. Last known good configuration
b. Safe mode with Networking.

If Safe mode w/networking works, restore your computer to an earlier using the system restore features.

Keep me posted.

Regards,

jeff

pull the power plug as soon as the emacines logo comes on
and if that doesn't work pull out the power as soon as the first windows logo screen comes on. it should then come on and give you the option to start in safe mode or regular mode, choose safe mode then after it comes on in safe mode restart the cpu
then it should come on in regular mode i don't know why it works for my emachines cpu but it does . i'm looking at downloading a error fixing program because i'm doing this almost when ever i turn off my cpu hope this helps if not reformat your hard drive andput windows on again it worked last time i had this problem.
