    Dear Mr. Mellomania,

    Thanks for a prompt reply and nice interactions.

    As recommended by you I have reformated the C drive of hard disc and started loading Window Xp professional service pack-2. After copying all files when window installation was in progress following message appeared and Comp shut down :

    QUOTE :

    "A problem has been detected & window has been shutdown to prevent damage to your computer.


    If this is the first time you have seen this stop error screen, restart your computer, if this screen appears again follow these steps

    Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed. If this is a new installation ask your hardware or software wanufacturer for any windows update you might need.

    If the problem continue disable or remove any new install hardware or software disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use safe mode to remove or disable component restart your computer, press F-8 to select advanced startup option and then select safe mode.

    Technical information

    *** stop: 0X0000000A (0X408CE160, 0X00000002, 0X00000000, 0X80818652)"

1- the problem is a software problem your board and processor are ok.

2- the message you saw indicates curruption in the windows files its strongly recomended that you install a new copy of windows even if the erors could be recovered..
reformating your hard disk is necessary to reinstall a new coppy of windows.

I am setting up a Vision 1 action camera DragonTouch 1 for my grandson. How do I format the SD card that I purchased for tllhis?

Most SD card will fit in your laptop or tablet with an adaptor sleeve. Most laptops today automatically format new memory cards or prompt you to do so. Look on the side of your laptop or tablet for a hole about an inch by 1/8 of an inch slot. Insert the sleeve and follow the instructions. You can go old school and use the command prompt window and drive letter using the command help from the C:>

type help from the C prompt to see the proper commands
C:>format D:
C:>format E:

***make sure you have the correct letter or you will clear all the data from whatever letter you use.

Soap dispenser not work

Hello Sean Radler - Confirm that water action is reaching the dispenser; water sprayed from the lower wash arm is directed at the dispenser, reposition any dishes that may be obstructing the water from reaching the detergent cup. Make sure items in the dishwasher do not prevent the detergent dispenser from opening (like tall dishes or cookie sheets). If these items do not correct the issue, there may be a problem with the detergent cup opening. Contact a professional to move forward accurately.

My action replay ds leaves the start screen but then just goes white even before it reaches the main menu.i tried blowing on it it and it still does the same thing

Hello dijanilaplac,

There can be many problems with your Action Replay DS. Try taking the Action Replay out of your Nintendo DS Lite Console, and look at the part those goes into the DS. Make sure nothing is bent, or missing. If something is, it might mean you may have to have it repaired, or replaced. Also keep in mind that sometimes Action Replays can be sensetive, so don't move it around while playing, or it may cause your DS to freeze up.

If you just bought this Action Replay recently, it should have been supplied with a CD to insert into your computer. You should install Action Replay onto your computer. When you have been brought to the main Action Replay Code Manager, find your USB and Action Replay plug in. Plug the small end into the top of the Action Replay cartridge, and the USB into the computer. Now a New Hardware wizard should have popped up on your computer.

When prompt, select, "Install from specific location.", then click next. Then select Search from CD-ROM. Sometimes it may sound different, just select the one that says something about searching from a CD-ROM. After this has completed, reset your Action Replay.

If the problem persists, feel free to contact me, for questions, or replies.

My notebook will not boot up. I hit the on/off button and it lights up then turns off. What should I do? Or is this notebook dead. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Joyce


Put your Windows installation disc into the DVD drive of your Toshiba laptop and then boot the laptop.

Press any key on your keyboard when you are prompted. Select your language and your time when you are prompted. Select your currency and the keyboard you are using when you are prompted. Click "Next" on the screen.

Click on "Repair your computer" in the next window. Select your Windows operating system from the menu and then click on the "Next" button.

Click "Command Prompt" in the next window and then type "bootrec.exe" into the prompt. Press the "Enter" button and then type "/FixBoot" into the next window.

Wait for the computer to fix your boot files and then restart the computer automatically.

I need drivers my laptop currupted i can't open it anymore

Without the cd there isn't much you can do. Unless you can find one you'll have to hope your laptop has a system restore option but you would also risk losing all your data doing so.

I doubt you can get to safe mode, but give try safe mode with command prompt and type chkdsk in the cmd window.
