Question about Computers & Internet

Computer crashed and can't reboot

I got the message that Windows updated some files and needed to restart. When I did this, the system never successfully restarted. It never got past the black Windows screen with the multi-colored scroll bar across the bottom. It would not let me reboot from here, and I had to unplug the system. I was finally able to start it in safe mode, and pull some documents onto a USB, but I was never able to start it normally.

Help!

Disable Automatic Reboot after Windows Update


Have you seen the message
"Automatic Updates
Updating your computer is almost complete. You must restart your computer for the updates to take effect.
Do you want to restart your computer now?"
Automatic Windows updates are very good for computer security. However, when these Windows updates are downloaded and installed on your computer, if the updates require a reboot of your computer, Windows keeps prompting you to reboot your computer.

Svchost.exe applicationerror The instruction at "0x012cf496" referenced memory "0x0123f496". The memory could not ne "written".


This is the most common question when computer users start to experience this error messages pop up on their screens. Many people immediately call in their computer-technicians to fix this problem and end up paying huge amount of money on professional fees.

Unknowingly, this problem could be easily fixed on your own, even if you know little about computers; and further prevents this problem to occur in the future. There are many ways to solve this and I shall discuss further on these methods; as well as the ones easier for you to do.

One of the best methods in dealing with this kind of situation is to verify the settings of windows update. If you keep on updating your system, some of the applications may not be compatible with your OS; hence, this error message shows up. In some cases, you may need to register again your update DLL file in order to fix this issues.

Another method is to reboot your computer in order to reload your operating system. There are times when your computer encounters problem during startup and rebooting your system can resolve the issue. Still another technique is to remove update files which are already corrupted; these files are usually found on your registry. In using these methods, you may need some expertise in order to make precise identification of corrupted files.

The best way to solve your problem is to use registry cleaners. This software can fix this trouble because this problem may be related to registry issues caused by the build-up of unwanted trash files. These junk files can cause various types of problems in your computer including svchost.exe application errors; it can further cause your system to run slow, takes longer time to start up, and eventually crash if not resolved immediately.

Therefore, the next time you encounter this message, you don't have to call in your technician to fix the problem for you; because you already know how to fix svchost.exe application error yourself using registry cleaner software.

Computer crashed?


Ouch, sorry to hear that, your os is corrupt, could be one of many reasons including a virus, or just a corrupt HD. Get the OS disk that came with your computer and reboot, make sure to boot the DVD/CD not the HD, start the install process, you will eventually get to point where you can select to do a repair, choose that and see if it will recover, if it does you shouldnt lose anythig, but you will need to reload some drivers and an update.
