I'm playing a game that uses tab key a lot. The dvd hotkey is right next to the tab and it tries to load that over my game. How can I disable that hotkey. The program came with the computer and I...


Uninstall the hotkey software from Control Panel (Add/Remove Programs in XP, Programs and Features in Vista, 7)

Alternatively install Startup Control Panel and uncheck the program from startup.The program works great in XP, for Vista and 7 there is more playing around:
  • Download the zip file
  • Click Extract All files
  • Right click on the program
  • Choose Run as Administrator
  • Install the program
  • Open Control Panel and choose Classic View
  • Run Startup
  • Uncheck something in HKLM and it will duplicate
  • Close Startup
  • Wait for Windows to pop up a box
  • Click Reinstall using recommended settings
  • Allow the program to run
  • Now you can remove the programs from startup.
  • Restart your computer

looks like it's stuck in a startup loop, can you boot from a windows cd into repair console (press R to repair with xp, choose repair my computer with vista or 7) ?

if so, type the command fixboot and after that fixmbr, if it still doen't work, try the chkdsk /F /R
command. if that doesn't work, try booting in hirens boot cd (download v13 and burn it to a cd rom) if still no success, you need to reinstall windows, if that doesn't work, replace the harddisk and reinstall.

My pc acer laptop extanse 4630z have a problem during working it restart emiditaly and shoe bule screen eror plz tell me what is bule screen error and why it restart is their any hardware r soft eare...


The blue screen is usually caused by a driver issue that has stopped working. The best way to deal with this is to if you have added anything new on your computer a device make sure that the device is compatible as well as all the drivers installed and updated often you can go to Windows Updates and see if there are updates for your devices under the "Optional Updates" Once this has been completed all the updates installed. This should solve the issues with the blue screen. SP3 has caused a lot of problems on PC's. Depending on your operating system Win XP or Vista or Win 7 which in my opinion is a far better operating system than Vista because the new 7 is more programed to seek drivers out and find them. So it is most likely a driver issue of course without seeing your computer I can only guess here.
Also what may be the issue as well is the startup programs you have running may need to be cleaned out as well. I bet that your startup icons down in the right hand corner of the desktop are loaded down. You can find the startup programs really easy go to run and type in MSCONFIG go to startup items turn off "disable all but anti-virus software! :Disable do not delete. Click and restart and watch the computer startup faster. I clean mine all the time. I use a software program "Free" called ccleaner which you can download free no cost at ccleaner.com
Also get rid of the video players installed except Windows Media Player keep that one unless you have a remote for a TV tuner and software that goes with it keep those as well. I use VLC player it has every media codec installed pretty much so that you will not receive errors when trying to load a DVD or a program video for school or homework etc. Also another thing to do is use spybot search and destroy software This software goes and checks your computer for ad-are and spy-ware issues and allows you to get rid of those annoying issues. Please click on underlined links above.
Now last but not least you may want to check to see if you have any devices with an icon or symbol that is yellow in color in the devices section. For XP go to my computer on the desktop select properties. Then go to devices from there. In Win 7 select my computer icon right click on this then go to properties then go to devices top right hand corner of window. Select this and check to see if all the devices are running without any errors showing yellow triangle beside any of them. If so do a update drivers. Make sure that you select go online always for any updates.
Once you clean your machine and download the free software you should be running faster and cleaner maintain your computer with these simple free tools and run maintenance free I do. Thanks for using FixYa! Please post a comment for me if I assisted you. John

Hi,
You may not be able to access the recovery partition because you have reinstalled the OS.
Make sure that AC power is plugged in to prevent shutdown.

Getting a Blue Screen after upgrading with Win. Vista Business Upgrade from Win. XP Pro.


Restart the computer is Safe Mode (press F8 when booting to get a menu of options). This will start the computer with the minimum number of drivers and "extras" being loaded. From here you can press Win+R to bring up the Run command and enter 'msconfig' and press Enter. From this tool, you can allow your normal startup programs and device drivers to load. You will want to keep anything related to your DSL drivers disabled for the time being. Then restart the computer normally. If everything loads as it should, you can keep going back to the MS Configuration utility to add other drivers and programs one-by-one and retest (reboot again) to make sure everything is working properly. Once you know what the culprit is, you can uninstall that program and reinstall the Vista version if required. (If it is just software for your DSL modem, it probably is not required under Vista.)
