Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional for PC

Winsys32 problem dear problem solver, when i switch on my comp, after the booting process when it reaches to the desktop, the first msg it shows is like 'specified path name of winsys32 could not be found.' Let me tell you one thing more, i have had internet installed just a week back, and this problem has surfaced only after when I updated the avast antivirus software. It has barred the access to many a files mostly .exe ones. This has also led to slowdown of my PC. Kindly Suggest me what to do????

Ok..
First try to Restart the computer in Safe Mode to narrow down the causes of the Problem.

To get into Safe mode - Restart the Computer and immedietly start tapping F8... You will get the "Windows Advanced Options"
Screen

Select "Safe Mode"

Check if you get the error or not

Try rebooting int SAFE MODE or last known good profile. Once able to login, just undo the changes made. You can recopy the setup files using windows CD update. If nothing helps just mail me.

Gateway desktop cop. DX4860 : Start switch on light is not lit steady, it is flickering, the comp. running without any problem.


This means it is processing, if the light stops, you are in trouble. If it annoys you, cover the light with something....maybe put a cup of coffee infront of it! :)

I have windows xp a lot of times when I restart my computer a white screen comes up it wont re-boot at times it boots up with a white screen


sounds like its a software problem , however its wise to rule out if its a hardware problem, best thing to do is try to start it up in safemode , this is easily done by retarting comp and pressing F8. now if safe mode shows your desktop it is most likely software, save any file you dont want to loose and try remastering if your comp came with installation disc restart with disc inside . if not it probably has a partition you need to look in manual for the remastering solution to this , could be retart f11 or retart f8 , every comp is different , best advice is to google your model for remastering my computer. good luck

NO POWER


If you have changed the power unit and the computer is still not powering up, then it is quite likely there is a motherboard fault - probably in the power management circuitry, which expects the power_good signal from the power unit at a precise moment in the boot up process. A fault in the power management circuitry would prevent the computer from beginning its boot-up process.

Do the fans in the power unit come on when the computer is switched on? If they don't - this suggests a power unit problem. If the power unit fans do start working but the computer still doesn't boot, this suggests either a faulty or 'dry' connection (easy checked) or a motherboard fault.

If your computer 'works' but nothing is displayed, try pressing Control+Alt+Delete. If it then boots up it suggests a power unit problem. If not .. we come back to the motherboard again.

A low wattage power unit can cause the problem you describe. Every 128 Mb of Ram needs 4 watts of power. Add more for the motherboard (up to 30 watts..) then the floppy/hard drive/dvd etc .. If the power unit can't supply the necessary wattage, it won't boot. The older 250-300 watt power units aren't suitable for modern computers with XP/Vista. Ideally, you should be looking at 400 watts plus -it will tell you on the power unit.

Though to be honest, it does sound like a motherboard fault.

The only other thing that can cause a computer not to boot up (though it will begin the boot up process) are other faults ... When you switch on does it actually display anything on the screen .. and are there any 'beeps'? 1 beep indicates everything is ok .. 3 short beeps and 1 long beep indicate a memory problem (and the computer won't boot..). 8 beeps indicate a video problem (and nothing will be dislayed on your screen). Same with 9 beeps .. which indicates a bios fault - and the computer won't continue the boot process.

If you have nothing .. no power whatsover ... it comes back to the power unit/mainboard. If you're happy that the new power unit you have put in is ok ... suspect the motherboard. If you have access to any unwanted or 2nd hand motherboard ... connect that. If your computer boots up ... its the original motherboard at fault.

Alternatively, rather than replace bits and pieces at random to cure the fault, take your computer along to a computer shop. It will take them minutes to test it for you and identify the fault.

Booting up


one light is for hardrive activity , the other is to show the power is on.. the flashing one is most likely the power light as most computers will tell you when thier ill....the beeping is an error code and should be in some pattern EG: Power LED blinks red twice, once a second, followed by a two second pause. Or something like that. Take note of the pattern and repost it here, then we can give you a specific area to look at.
