Laptop goes standby randomly after login with fraction of second


If this is, in fact, a settings issue, I would recommend going back to a restore point that predates this behavior.
For Windows 7, open your control panel and select "Recovery".
Then click on "Open System Restore". XP and Vista have similar restore features. Just be sure to select a date prior to this behavior.
System Restore "restores" your system registry back to whatever date you choose. This means any operating system settings you have changed will be "unchanged". If the restore back to the date you chose doesn't fix it, you can put it back by performing the restore again and choosing a recent date.

System restore XP doesn't go back a month


The system restore will only work if it has a restore point available ..These restore points are the ones that are highlighted on the calendar when the restore service is accessed..If you only have the current month displayed..you can roll back the calendar ..and choose a date which is highlighted..but if you do not have a functional restore point you will not be able to do it ..If the system was recently installed it also will not have a restore point available older than the date it was installed...or the date the system restore was enabled..My advice is to choose a date available ..and restore it anyway if it makes problems ..it is not necessary to restore it to a date so far back ..but to a date when you know it worked well..
If the system was affected by a virus...you have to know that the system restore may brink it back if it has a restore point not affected by the virus..but the problem will still be in the computer and will came back ...so the action is to reinstall it completely or use the recovery disk or partition .

My computer says configure updates and then it automatically turns off


This will be a long process of troubleshooting and may end up of restoring your computer to a factory settings. You can try the steps below:
First is boot up to advance boot options, to do this follow the steps below: -Turn off your computer -After pressing the turn on button start tapping F8 key until you see the Advance Boot Option. -Try choosing Last Known Good Configuration if it fail try Safemode, Safemode with networking or safemode with command prompt, if one is successful use system restore to restore your computer to an earlier date but if it fails you'll need to use your Operating System Disc to use the repair option.
Here's how to access system restore incase you're able to access Last Known Good Configuration, Safemode, Safemode with networking or safemode with command prompt: Windows XP: Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click System Restore select Restore my computer to an earlier time then select a bold date on the calendar and click Next on the Confirm Restore Point Selection page, click Next. System Restore restores the previous Windows XP configuration, and then restarts the computer. Then click OK on the System Restore Restoration Complete page.
Windows 7 and Windows Vista: Click Start, point to Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click System Restore select Restore my computer to an earlier time then select a bold date on the calendar and click Next on the Confirm Restore Point Selection page, click Next. System Restore restores the previous Windows configuration, and then restarts the computer. Then click OK on the System Restore Restoration Complete page.
If you're on safemode with command prompt: At the command prompt, type %systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe, and then press ENTER, System Restore window will pop-up then select Restore my computer to an earlier time then select a bold date on the calendar and click Next on the Confirm Restore Point Selection page, click Next. System Restore restores the previous Windows configuration, and then restarts the computer. Then click OK on the System Restore Restoration Complete page.
If all the steps above fails you need to use the recover disc or the operating system disc to do a repair on your computer. Revert back in case you need steps for using start-up repair.
Note: If the steps above and start-up repair fail there's no other option but to restore your computer to factory settings.

My computer was turned off improperly and now the screen saver is extra large with a very large cursor.


Hi jjbender3,

What Operating System (Windows XP, Vista, 7) are you using? You can try to do a System Restore to go back to a previous date prior to the problem.
To do System Restore in XP:

1.) Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click System Restore.
2.) On the Welcome to System Restore page, click to select the Restore my computer to an earlier time option, and then click Next.
3.) On the Select a Restore Point page, click the most recent system restore point in the On this list, click a restore point list, and then click Next.
4.) On the Confirm Restore Point Selection page, click Next. System Restore restores the previous Windows XP configuration, and then restarts the computer.
5.) Log in to the computer. Then click OK on the System Restore Restoration Complete page.

To do System Restore in Vista and 7:

1.) Type restore into the Start menu search box, and you'll immediately see System Restore at the top of the start menu. Click it.
2.) Click one of the restore point, and you will have to confirm and then restart your computer to roll the system back.

Hope this helps.

How to restore to a previous date on 536S Can not open email or download anything


Sounds like a serious virus/malware infection.
Restoring to an earlier date will not get rid of your problems.
You need to use good antivirus and malware cleaner programs.

My HP a800n (using XP) worked fine yesterday. Last night, an automatic update came in from Microsoft. Today, I cannot get it to consistently boot up. It did it once earlier and locked up. Now, I get the...


Try to boot up into safe mode and see if you can get in there. If so then go into the system tools folder in the start menu or by going into the windows icon. You would go into accessories and then system tools and then go into system restore.

In the system restore choose the last good known date that is bolded when the computer was working properly. After you click on the date to choose it go ahead and let it restore. It will need to reboot, once it does if it goes back in then your good. At that point I would suggest turning off automatic updates for windows.

If you can't get into safe mode, then your going to need to reinstall windows cause the operating system is corrupted.

I would like my pc to be set the way it used to be.


The Way it use to be, When? Remember the date and restore the PC to that date or somewhere then, a few days here or there. How??? Go to Start->Accessories->System Tools->Restore. The PC would take a reboot before you are shifted back in time. But it would be restored to that date which is bold in the calender.

Cant go back to created restore point


your pc probably automatically creates restore points and there is a limit on the space they can take so it automatically starts to remove the old ones.

to my experience system restore in xp was a total peace of ****
takeing up extra space and when used caused more problems than it fixed.

In my honest opinion system restore shouldnt be used.

hi dear

Through the All Programs menu:
1.
Click Start.
2.
Point to All Programs.
3.
Point to Accessories.
4.
Point to System Tools.
5.
Click System Restore.
6.
Follow the instructions on the wizard.
Creating a restore point can be useful any time you anticipate making changes to your computer that are risky or might make your computer unstable. If something goes wrong, you select the restore point you just created and Windows XP undoes any system changes made since that time.
Create a Restore Point
1.
Open System Restore. (See step-by-step instructions above.)
2.
Click Create a restore point, and then click Next.
3.
In the Restore point description box, type a name to identify this restore point as seen in Figure 1 below. System Restore automatically adds the date and time that this Restore Point is created.
3201fb4.gif
Figure 1. Creating a restore point
• To finish creating this restore point, click Create.
• To cancel restore point creation and return to the Welcome to System Restore screen, click Back.
• To cancel restore point creation and exit the System Restore Wizard, click Cancel.
To view or to return to this restore point, from the Welcome to System Restore screen of the System Restore Wizard select Restore my computer to an earlier time. Then select the date you created the restore point from the calendar in the Select a Restore Point screen. All of the restore points you created and you computer created on the selected date are listed by name in the list box to the right of the calendar.
Note System Restore does not replace the process of uninstalling a program. To completely remove the files installed by a program, you must remove the program using Add or Remove Programs in Control Panel or the program's own uninstall program. To open Add or Remove Programs, click Start, click Control Panel, and then click Add or Remove Programs.
