Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Monny checking in.

Hi Smartsolve,
I hope you remember me and the issues you were helping me with. Thank you so much for checking in to see how I was going. Unfortunately I have been off the scene for a while due to this computer of mine. I haven't had any luck with the hot fix as they never ever responded to any of my mails. I am now wondering if they are receiving my requests. I am going to try again as soon as I finish this message to you. I am ever so appreciative of you checking in like you did. I have been very concerned that I couldn't let you know what was happening after you going to all that trouble for me. I hadn't forgotten your kindness but this 'lovely' computer wasn't being at all helpful.
I will let you know should I get a response this time. I hope I am sending them the correct information. Oh to be more computer literate. LOL. Take care my friend.

    Hi Smartsolve, Oh my gosh no; you have been such a great help and support for me. If it hadn't have been for you I would have torn all my hair out a long time ago & the computer would have been long gone. I am determined to get this fixed, you have put so much effort into it for me & I know how busy you must be.

    I am now going through the waiting process again. If I haven't heard by tomorrow I'm afraid I will have to bother you further. Sorry ;-)

    I will touch base with you again tomorrow afternoon our time. Take care and have a great day.

    Hi Smartsolve,

    Well today was the day that I received my hotfix. I was so excited!! I have unzipped it and its done its thing... then when I restarted my little gem up again it still wouldn't do the chkdsk thingy :-( Could I have done it wrong? Does it need to be directed to anywhere special by me or does it find its own way? It said it was installed correctly so I assume it is. LOL. As you can tell I really don't have any idea. I'm truly sorry to be such a pest. I look forward to hearing from you. "Please." No hurry, just when you get a moment to spare.

    I hope your day is going well.

    Warmest wishes,

    Hi Smartsolve, where has my Guru gone. Help!!! Just checking in to see if you had responded to my post. I know you must be busy. I will have to learn to be more patient. LOL. Have a great day.

    Kindest regards,

Hi! VERY glad to hear from you - I was afraid that I had done something that had "scared you off". Of course I remember - I have checked back periodically to see if you had contacted FixYa at all to try to contact you again.

If you need help contacting MS, post back and I will help you with making sure the link is right and so on.... Still here and hoping all is well (or it will be) -:) - Thanks so much.

    Well, there's proof that no technology always works - I just got the first email that you had contacted me in re this matter. Sorry - I didn't have any idea you had posted again! (And your guru is still here - I won't abandon you!)

    Congratulations on finally getting your hotfix! There's one big step, huh? When you installed, did you get a message indicating that it was successful? Also, was it installed with no antivirus running? (I ask this as often that could cause a problem.)

    For now, assuming you didn't get negative feedback from the install, let's try to run a chkdsk straight up. Open a My Computer window, and right-click on your C drive. Go to the Tools tab, and the first section should be Error-checking, with a box reading Check Now. Select Check Now, and you should be able to proceed through a chkdsk.

    So, we'll try that first, and I'll cross my fingers. Make SURE you don't have any other programs running - not IE, not an antivirus, etc. Just Windows, My Computer, then to the chkdsk procedure. Depending on the size and content of your disk, it could take a long time to finish.

    As I said, I will keep my fingers crossed, and I will check backlater, and at least once a day, even if I don't get an email from FixYa telling me that you have commented...



  • Cheryl Whalen Jun 12, 2008

    Does this really mean that you are fixed?? Hip! Hip! Hooray!!

    Just because you don't have something serious happening doesn't mean you can't post a messge. Post something out there with Monny in the title and I'll be there! (Need help with, oh, finding a power switch? Ha! I missed you too during the time I didn't hear from you - and if it's too long before I hear again, maybe I'll have to post a question for you to answer for me!

    Thanks so much - SOOO glad everything is better. Think you could rate me on this issue? Thanks again - you're great!

Hi there,

I would request you to check for the power calbe. Try and change the power cable and check if that works and make sure there is no continous beep on the machine as it would be a issue with RAM or hard drive.

Hope this helps you. I would request you to give a feedback on this solution as it would be appreciated.

Thank you.

Hi rnb brother,

It sounds like you may need to udate you BIOS. It may be a memory allocation issue. This is an issue when the accessed/pointed memory allocation does not totally close, allowing a little bit of info out to disrupt normal operation. BIOS is closely related to access/pointed memory allocation and upon udating will close this path competely. I hope this helped a little, if not, hit me back, we have other options i.e. running dual cards.

Thank you for using

What problem it is giving ? check that device is properly inserted or not. Can you able to see the mouse arrow on your desktop ? If its perfect then replace it. Remember that,after installing the new mouse you need to restart the system once. so that it can initialize that device. If new mouse is also not working then there is a problem in your motherboard mouse connector. Try with above steps. Hopefully it should work. Thank you.
