It sounds like your profile might be corrupted but it doesn't make sense that rebooting will sometimes fix your problem. The next time your icons don't show up, right click on the desktop and select "Refresh" to see if they come up then.

Why won't my COMPAQ PRESARIO SR2032X desk top


Please turn off the computer, start hitting F8 at the start-up and then choose last known good configuration. If this does not work, choose Safe mode options.
If still does not work, please try to restore the computer to factory settings. You can try to hit F11 or F10 at the startup to initiate recovery.
If not working, please tell me what error message you get on the screen.

Dell dimension 3000 desk top, does not turn on ?


It's one of two problems: bad power supply, or bad motherboard. If you are electro-mech inclined, remove the power supply. Take it to your local computer repair shop, and ask for one just like that one.
Reinstall, power up should (most of the time) fix this problem. If still no power, you need a new mb. Return to the shop, ask them to replace mb. This repair should be right around $250.0 - tops. Any more than that - replace computer.
Hope this helps. Either way, if you wouldn't mind taking the time to rate my response, it would be much appreciated!
Thanx and good luck.

My ibm desk top is stuck in power save mode monitor won't work


So the only way you have to act is, turned off and directly on the mainboard, so do it carefully.
You'll have to find out, where, on the mainboard is located the battery, (a small coin like
unpluggable metallic piece)
Remove it and let all static electricity completely disapear, so, let the cpu power unplugged,
battery removed, for 1h,
Then, place back, battery, try to start again if not working it's hardwaire failure.

Ntvdm.exe


boot to safe-mode - goto start then run and type msconfig -

Within Msconfig you should see a startup tab. Look in there and remove or uncheck all that appear to be using ntvdm.exe

Also check in start, programs, startup, remove anything there as well.

Let me know if that does not help.

G'luck
