Hi,
somethings drawing too many resources and your computer is out of memory and is swapping to the hard drive. If you recently put internet explorer 8 on there , or a combination of that and something like google desktop may cause issues like that. try going back to IE7 at www.oldversion.com disable some unused programs in your system tray(by the clock at the bottom). study your task manager and see whats going on (right click task bar/task manager), watch the numbers in the processes tab of task manager. shut off stuff you dont use. in the run box type msconfig and study the "services" tab also..
happy hunting

Have you changed any BIOS settings? I would open your BIOS menu and make sure it is set to "AHCI"

Hi..i have HP pavilion dv5 laptop with preloaded Windows Vista. i want to istall windows xp instead of vista. i tried installing it using xp bootable disc. but after loading the required installation files...


its very simple....
enter the bios setting...The BIOS settings menu is accessible by pressing the f2 or f10 or the f6 key on some computers.
if the BIOS provides an option to disable the native-SATA configuration in the BIOS, do the following steps to Disable the native-SATA in the BIOS

1. Use the cursor to navigate the Configuration options to locate the Native-SATA setting. 2. If there is a SATA setting, select the Disable option, and then press F10 to save the change and restart the computer.

if your system bios does not contain such option.... then find "Native SATA mode" or "SATA IDE"
then change "AHCI" to "ATA"
then press F10 to save the change and restart the computer.

My pc has problem while shutting down. It does not shuts down. Installed a new Intel DG 31Pr m/bd with core 2 duo processor. Using XP as OS


The problem is with your windows driver setting you have either not installed all drivers needed by the motherboard or some of the newly installed software is blocking/obstructing the computers shut down database may be because of some automatic update of that software.In that case 1.Insert your windows bootable disk again and load all drivers {only} again by selecting press any key to boot from c.d after the driver loading procedure is complete press enter and then F3 and again enter before the 15 second timer completes and bring your system to the state you were previously in.
2.Run the operating system and then insert your motherboard driver disk in the c.d drive install all drivers needed for the motherboard functioning especially the chipset drivers .
3.Check for any newly installed programs/softwares in the control panel>addor remove programs menu .Remove any newly installed program.
Please take the steps one by one and continue checking in between the problem will be solved in one of the three ways given above

HELP! Cannot start my laptop.


This is a classic BSOD caused by a bad hardware driver. Until you can boot in safe mode, you're screwed. Keep trying F8.

Blue screen on my P.C.,windows shut down


If you are using an AGP or PCI graphic card try disabling the on board video adapter from BIOS.

Ensure that you have the latest drivers for this video card installed.

If the video adapter is using shared memory, then you may have a faulty RAM module.

Reinstall Direct X and any graphic acceleration software.

Go to BIOS and disable memory caching and shadowing options, this usually does not solve the problem, but you never know.

Contact video card or Motherboard manufacturer, there may be an issue between video adapter and your motherboard, or the specific software that you are using. In that case manufacturer may require to download a patch.

Windows program shut down Laptop problem model-no-XPS M1530


it sounds like the hard drive might be failing or it might be a software problem. Try starting in safe mode and running a full system scan to see if it's sometihngi n the software. If not go to the Bio's screen and run drive self test. you do this in bio's by scrolling with your arrow till you get to a tools menu and then it will say hard drive self test. Your computer then will do 3 tests to determine if you have a harddrive problem. If you do then you will have to have the hard drive replaced. If you have a warranty on the computer call them as they will cover this issue.
