I would contact Microsoft, explain the circumstances to them and emphasise your daughters condition. If they are sympathetic to your case (and they should be), they will probably be inclined to send you out a copy of Windows 7 if you can prove that you have a legitimate serial code for this.

My advice is also not to be put off by the first person you speak to, ask to go higher up the "food chain" until you get a response. I think you have anough to contend with without having these issues to deal with

Creepy crawly virus through my grandson download of a "free" games has left windows 7 on in background but basically as wiped 3 years worth of files.


You could in principle note down everything you have installed, perform a system recovery to set the computer back to the factory, from either the Recovery CDs you made when you first got the computer, or from the Recovery partition on your hard disk (which should not be infected) You would then have re-install the other software that you wanted from scratch, either from the original disks, or downloading it from the internet. This includes updates, drivers etc.
One way of reminding yourself of what software you have is to keep a copy of your infected disk to look at (remove your new disk before looking though).
The other thing you could do is try to remove the virus. , either by returning the computer to a professional to do for you, or by yourself, or sign up to one of the many the forums that exist on the internet who will help you e.g., www.majorgeeks.com, www.bleepingcomputer.com, www.computerhope.com, www.techsupportforum or one of the many others. Volunteers will help you, and direct you to use virus removal tools. It may be a long job and may not always be successful - sometimes the only thing to do is start from scratch (erase your hard disk: try NOT to erase the recovery partition though. If you have lost the recovery partition, and you did not make recovery CDs, HP may supply you with a set of recovery disks if you ask them nicely and give them loot.
Let us know how you fare (in a couple of months....)

Hi my playstation keeps freezing and everytime i follow the instructions on the playstation it freezes again. it now wont start correctly. Could you help me please ?


Hello,

Hello

your PS3 is freezing simply because your console is affected by heat, so you have to cool it down. If the freezing continues even after cooling down, you can follow the steps below:

To stop the PS3 from Freezing, you could begin by putting off your console and wait for 20 minutes. After that, put it back on. Check if there's any loose cables. If there is, put them back in.

If the problem still persist, try the below steps,

1. Turn off Playstation®3.
2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again.
3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps
4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button.
5. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button
6. The Recovery menu will pop up.

The current Recovery Menu supports:
• Restart System: Restarts the PLAYSTATION®3 System.
• Restore Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default.
• Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files.
• Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION®3.
• Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch.
• System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION®3 System.

Take care.

Hello,

You can try the steps below. Its from PlayStation Forum:

1. Turn off Playstation®3.
2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again.
3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps
4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button.
5. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button
6. The Recovery menu will pop up.

The current Recovery Menu supports:
• Restart System: Restarts the PLAYSTATION®3 System.
• Restore Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default.
• Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files.
• Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION®3.
• Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch.
• System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION®3 System

If the above steps still does not solve the problem, then I think will have to update your Ps3.

Update your PS3 (in the settings menu the 1st option).

Go on the internet browser on the PS3 then go on the menu press triangle then on one of them there are delete cookies and the delete the others as well as cookies.

You could also try this as well: put the PS3 on then press the eject button (with no disc in) then hold it and switch the PS3 off at the back with your finger on the eject button still holding it, then put it back on and the fan test should be working this may cool it down. It might be over heating.

If after trying the above options and it still does not solve the problem, then maybe the lens is weak and that's why it cannot read any disc.

But if your problem is not still solved, then maybe you should call sony for further assistance.

I wish you good luck.

Hello and thank you for using Fixya!

I included a link to Gateway (although you have an HP) but they seem to have a better way to handle this. Please see the article and instructions.

Where it says Gateway, just replace with HP. It walks you thru creating a restore disk as well, which is pretty similar to HP but of course references different software.

Hope this helps!

moz-screenshot-1.jpgHello,

has this problem started recently or been impacting you for a long time?

If it's a short-term issue then rolling back to a time period prior to the error occurring is usually the quickest way of fixing the problem (could have been caused by a number of issues e.g. conflicts in the registry or files corrupted). In order to rollback got to Control Panel\Backup and Restore Center and select the date of the most appropriate restore point.

You could also try downloading the latest version of the software that is causing the issue from the aspire website-http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/notebook/as_5920.html.

If the above fails complete a fresh install-
Acer supply good quality system recovery and software installation disks with all new laptops.

Ensure you have backed up all your data and any programs that you don't have on disk onto a USB memory stick or similar.

Locate your recovery disk and insert into the DVD drive. Restart the laptop and follow the on-screen instructions to complete a fresh install.

Tecra 8100 Freezes shortly after Windows comes up


Go into your hard disk utility and defragment your file. When the computer writes to your hard disk over time these files no longer are sequential as they were in the beginning. This is one solution, also you can do a disk recovery using your original disk or by pressing F10 as it boots up. Be sure and do a good check for viruses as well. The symptom you are describing sounds alot like a virus that is slowing your system down more and more. Good luck.

4. When prompted to use the Microsoft System Restore program, select No and click Next.
5. When prompted to use the System Recovery, select Yes and click Next.
6. Select the option to perform the recovery without backing up files and click Next.
7. Upon completion of the process, recovery will display "The PC Recovery was successfully completed".
The recovery process will return your PC to the factory image.

Full recovery by using recovery disks:

2. Insert the first Recovery disc in the disc drive and close the door.
3. Press the power button to turn on the PC.

5. Follow the prompts to insert any additional recovery discs in the disc drive.
