If you have moved these programs to a different location on your computer you may try making another desktop icon, or even reinstalling the program itself

Forgotten my computer access code


If you are referring to the power up access code screen that comes up when you first turn on your computer, it can be erased by removing the disc type button battery located on your motherboard. Make sure computer is un pluged from the power source. Remove the button battery for 30 seconds. Re-install it and power the computer up. It will boot up normally. If you are referring to a lock out of your Operating System, you will need to purchase a password recovery / reset program and load it into your computer during start up using the boot drive options selections located in your start up / set up menus. Its usually called: Boot Options or Boot Drive Options

When you are booting up your computer, you need to press F8 in order to get into the per-windows start-up.

Once you are in this stage , you will need to boot your computer into safe mode. This will give you access to the basic programs of Windows XP.

My computer is really slow. any suggestions?


You can do the following:

1. Perform a Disk Cleanup to delete all uneccessary files from your computer. Click Start button, All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, Disk Cleanup. Choose drive C: and check all the boxes and start cleanup by hitting Ok.

2. Do a virus scan. The computer might be compromised thus performing so slow. Here's an effective and free online scan: http://eset.com/onlinescan

3. Defrag your computer. Go to Start >> All Programs >> Accessories >> System Tools >> Disk Defragmenter. This is used to increase access speed by rearranging files stored in your computer.

4. Check for your computer's memory. If you have 2 memory sticks installed, one might have failed. Right click your My Computer and choose Properties. On the general tab, check if it still giving you the value of memory that you used to have on your computer.

Hope this helps.

My Acer X1200 has a virus, I can't access Windows


Step One.

If your computer is still on, attempt the three finger salute to restart your computer, that is ctl, alt, delete at the same time, which will pop up a window showing you the running programs. Then go into safe mode to access your anti virus program and save info, or just re-install your software system if there is nothing you need to save.

Or:
A hard shut down can also be done.

Boot into your system in safe mode after that.

If none of that works give more detail as to what is going on.

EVERY TIME I TRY TO TURN ON MY DELL COMPUTER IT ACTS LIKE IT IS ABOUT TO START UP BUT THEN GO TO A BLUE SCREEEN AND GIVE ME A ERROR MESSAGE AND WILL NOT GO ANY FURTHER


BSOD = Blue Screen of Death
You have a problem with Windows booting.
When you computer starts up and it has passed the bios check start pressing F8 until you get the Windows start up options, select safe mode and see if windows then boots normally.
If it does then search/run msconfig.exe, on the General tab select Diagnostic startup, click OK and reboot and see if windows now loads.
If it does then you have a program or driver installed that is conflicting in Windows, so remove any recently installed programs or hardware drivers
Go back into msconfig and select Normal startup and see if Windows boots again.
See how you get on with that

Computer will not start past safe mode screen


In safe mode, hit start button -run, and type "msconfig" in the box , hit enter.
the system configuration utility opens.
select startup tab at the top
when the startup screen opens, UNcheck all the boxes, press APPLY, then OK
the computer will prompt you to restart, when it restarts it will give you a message saying you have use the system configuration utility to change the way windows starts, this is normal. Check the box that say dont show this again and click OK.
doing this will keep the programs set to start when windows starts from starting untill you start them manually. If one of them is causing the freeze, this will make the system accessible.
Keep in mind, you may want to turn some of them back on after you get the computer going and when you do , turn them on one at a time and restart the computer after each change. this way you can identify which program is causing the problem.
Hope this helps. please repost if you have more questions
