    Hi.

    Maybe you think the experts are real wizards, thats only a way to call somebody with some knowledge.( just kidding).

    How can we know what is your Operating System, is it Windows XP ?, Window Vista ?

    You will have to be more specific to get some help.



    Regards.

Blue Screen Of Death


  1. You may need to roll back system with System Restore. Under Safe Mode (press F8 during boot and choose safe mode). Start > Search type System Restore. Now choose a date prior to problem. You may have to try a few dates.
  2. Uninstall last program(s) that was installed, again in safe mode.
  3. Test one DIMM at time. One slot at a time. To eliminate possible bad RAM. Unplug PC. Opening case. Remove all RAM. Use static precautions!
  4. Re-install Windows. Clean install works best.
  5. Lastly you may have other hardware problems. If it does another blue screen after reloading windows, especially with a clean install.

Will not boot up cause l think for external usb being removed at wrong time


That is possible, can you put it in safe mode? choose last known configuration that worked or a system restore bringing computer back in time before the problem. If none of these work you will need to do a clean install of your operational system.

Emachines c2480 needs system recovery


System Recovery deletes all your documents, music and pictures and sets your system back to the point when you first purchased it.

Have you tried System Restore that will preserve your data. Click Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore and restore to a date and time before you started having problems. You may have to get into Safe Mode to start System Restore. To get to Safe Mode turn off the machine then turn it back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE MODE. Select Safe Mode and let it boot up. Then try system restore.

If this continues to happen you will either need to use System Restore to bring the system back to a time before this happened or reload the OS. If you can get to a dos prompt, try running chkdsk.

Hi,

You have to clear the CMOS to clear all power on passwords.

With the computer facing you remove the power cord and then take of the left hand side panel of the tower to expose the motherboard.

Look near the bottom right of the motherboard for the BIOS battery. It looks like this >>>>>

Remove this battery for about 20 minutes periodically hitting the on/off switch to dispel any residual power from the motherboard. This will clear the CMOS for you.
After 20 mins is up put the battery back in and put the side panel back on.
Turn on the computer and it should boot to the operating system.

Remember to set the year, date and time as these will be reset.


Regards.

When switching on PC it does not boot up fully


Hi Craig

From what you are descrbing one of the background services is preventing start up from completing

Please try the following

1) Switch on PC
2) Continuoulsy press the F8 key until a start menu is presented, choose safe mode from this menu
3) Once safe mode has loaded up go to Start>Programs>Systems Tools>System Restore
4) From the system restore menu choose 'restore my computer to a earlier time'
5) From the calendar presented choose a date in bold when this fault wasnt happening and then click on next and follow the screen through
6) Let the system restore complete and it will automatically reboot and take you back to the mains windows screen
7) This should hopefully let the hung service be able to run

I hope this has been useful
