Hi Cpippa,
when you say it crashed you mean a blue screen or it just shutdown(turnoff) itself ?? Incase of blue screen then I recommend to test your Harddrive first. You can test by entering your BIOS and incase they have option to test harddisk.But if no then, plug your HD as external HD to any other computer... and test it first.I think in this case you have BAD sector.
Incase you mean your computer shutdown itself ,then I think its maybe due to heat, the fan might not be working or the air flow is being block.Check it first and let me have more detail about your case.
goodluck,takecare.

Is the laptop running hot? Perhaps you need to get a can of compressed air and clean it up. This is just a suggestion, since you seem to be getting a crash at different points. Hopefully it is just a heating problem. No doubt others here will have other suggestions.

Most likely to be either the waste basket not being emptied for a user, or it could be the system restore where old restore points exist. In windows explorer, right click the disk and select 'disk cleanup' Give that a go.

Having with my dell inspiron window 7 laptop(hard drive/corrupt registry) how do I restore it too factory setting?


If you have tried every system restore point, that is when you open system restore you checked show more points, and have tried all of them, then you must reinstall the OS.

If you don't have a windows disk, you can download win 7, it is legal to download and use for 30 day's, but then you are suppose to register it.

If you download it, you should check the hash number, but it's not a second deal, you would need to read about how to do this.

I will post a link for win 7 downloads, for the most part I can say these are not touched, they are ok.


These are ISO files, so you need a software like free ISO burner, this will open and burn the file to a DVD disk, now you have a win 7 install disk.

You can also use the win 7 disk to repair windows, so if you do burn it, try repairing windows with it first.

Here is a link if you need to see how to install win 7, with pictures.

http://www.buildeasypc.com/sw/windows_7/install_windows_7.htm



Here is where you can get win 7, pick the version you have now because the serial key only works for that version you have now.

I was restoring from the Acer recovery disk that I created when my process crashed before it completed. Now it won't boot up at all...HELP!


Your best bet is to reinstall the operating system. I couldn't count the number of times that the Recovery Discs created by users fail, it's very common. The only recovery that works a high percentage of the time is when the manufacturer puts a recovery partition on your hard drive.

You can try your Recovery Disc again, but if it produces the same results, just reinstall your operating system fresh. It shouldn't matter because either way you will lose your data.

Don't restore the system to a hard disk of different size. You may fix the old disk again and use it while using the new (probably larger) disk as an external disk (by fixing a driver bay).
If you want to use the new disk you will have to install the operating system and software from scratch.

How do i use a emachine restore disk on a compaq


You could try booting into safe mode and restoring your computer to a time before the update was installed. Was the update KB977165? If memory serves, this update may crash your system when you are infected. Read more here:
http://blogs.zdnet.com/hardware/?p=7377&tag=nl.e539

Try tapping F8 when you turn on your computer, select "Last known good configuration" and see if it will load the OS that way. If so, you will want to run some scans. I recommend Malwarebyte's Anti-malware to start:
http://download.cnet.com/Malwarebytes-Anti-Malware/3000-8022_4-10804572.html?tag=mncol

And then run an ESET Online scan
http://www.eset.com/onlinescan/

If last known good configuration doesn't work, try F8 boot again, selecting "Safe Mode", and go into system restore to restore your computer to a point before the update was installed.
in XP it is START>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore

Did this resolve your issue? If so, please rate it. ty.

My system crashed. Won't reinstall windows


Do you need anything that is stored on the crashed hard drive? If so, you need to get an adapter for the drive and connect it to a desktop pc as the 'd:' disk. then copy any files you can access that you need saved.
Re-install the drive into the laptop, use "FDISK /MBR" from a floppy drive or a USB drive set up as a boot disk to re-partition it, and install the master boot record, and then boot the CDrom to install your operating system afresh.
The error message you are getting is caused by the 'restore' program trying to use the C: disk programs, and they are not there. I think you may have a bad hard drive, as usually the programs will be found.
You need to find out if the disk is really really bad or just needs to be re-formatted. Follow the above steps to determine if you need a new drive or not.

Laptop crash after inserting blank disk


do not worry at all. take out the cd and reboot in safe mode by pressing F8 at bootup. Then you can restore your laptop to an earlier date from Start->All progs->Accessories->System->restore. reboot normal this time.

Need to Restore My Acer Aspire 5315


Turn on your laptop...as soon as it turns you push thepower botton start pressing F8, this will take you to the system recovery screen. You will need to pick the option that says system restore. Dont pick the option that says restore to a restore point, you will need to pick the one that say destructive restore. usually u get this option by pressing the advanced options. It will give you a warning about the system being reformatted...are you sure...yada yada yada... click ok and it should reformat the system and then reinstall the original facotry software
