Can you give more detail?

Is it overheating? Are the fans inside the desktop working correctly?

I'm Becky D. I'm having trouble with a friends will turn on but, it will not do anything else, it stays at first page, which is the time and lock page. How do I fix it?

Hi. Try to do backup or start last good configuration:
To start your computer by using the Last Known Good Configuration feature, follow these steps:
  1. Start your computer.
  2. When you see the "Please select the operating system to start" message, press the F8 key.
  3. When the Windows Advanced Options menu appears, use the ARROW keys to select Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked), and then press ENTER.
  4. If you are running other operating systems on your computer, use the ARROW keys to select Microsoft Windows XP, and then press ENTER.

My computer is denying the password

It states that you are using XP Pro. if you are locked out of your system by entering the incorrect password too many times, you have only a couple of choices short of re-installing XP Pro.

1.Did you make a Password Disk? If so problem solved, just insert the disk and it will open up.

In the event there is NO Password disk, you will need to locate special software to be able to unlock your computer. This software can be quite expensive at times.

OR, you can Re-Install your Windows XP Pro, and LOOSE everything on your hard drive in the process. Hope you Back-Up often to offsite/External source.

Good Luck, Oh check your CAP lock key, the biggest mistake made when entering passwords.

Can I expect any problems with installing Windows XP Service Pack

Short answer is yes. You'll stand a better chance of sucess if you download it from the windows update site. Also, go to your computer manufacturer's support website and check your model for any software upgrades that may be needed before installing sp3.

My desktop icons are written clear but under colour

If you are running XP, click Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore.

Follow the prompts and select a bold date back to a time earlier than this problem occurred. It will require a reboot, but stands a good chance of resolving your issue.

It will not remove anything from your computer, but you may have to re-install any software recently installed.

If you get it fixed and then re-install some software, the problem may come back. That would let you know the software is causing the problem.

Hi! Hope this helps. Please consider other components or cards installed on your motherboard. Please try removing one at a time then have it start and shutdown if it works. For harddisk management please see the power management at control panel, select the how or when you are goin' to set your harddrive sleep, standby, etc.. We had also met "Standby Mode Problem", by cleaning viruses, spywares and even the registry it can be fixed. Please search for the right and specific tools. Goodluck!
