Cannot boot computer -acer aspire T180 097Z . At first a blue screen saying "error fatale" came; computer rebooted normally; next day on booting first says pressF12 as normal then blue screen...


First you will need a Windows Operating System Disc or Linux. I suggest Ubuntu witch you can get for free here at http://www.ubuntu.com/download.
Next insert the disc and reboot the computer.
The computer should boot from the Windows or Linux Disc
If it does not you may need to go into the BIOS by pressing your BIOS access key as soon as you turn the computer on. These are commonly the F12, F2 and F11 Keys.
If using windows wait for setup to load and the screen should look like this.
matthewt_smi_4.jpg
Press the enter key.
Accept the windows XP licensing agreement by pressing F8
Choose what Hard Drive to install Windows XP on
matthewt_smi.gif
After this choose to format the Drive Using the NTFS (Quick) method.
Windows will now automatically install itself.
Follow the Prompts until you get to the Windows XP CD Key window.
matthewt_smi_5.jpg
Insert your windows XP product key located on the CD box or case it came in.
Follow the rest of the prompts and Finish the Installation and you are ready to go.
There may be other drivers needed to complete installation of all of the hardware.
Here is the Driver page http://support.acer.com/us/en/product/default.aspx?tab=1&modelId=386
To install Ubuntu download and burn to a disc the 32 bit version.
Insert the disc and follow the onscreen prompts
Ubuntu will guide you through the setup. Ubuntu should work without any extra drivers.
Also Ubuntu does not need antivirus.
If you choose Ubuntu i suggest signing up at the forums for community support.
The forums are here http://ubuntuforums.org/
I hope my guide here is helpful.
Please Remember Windows XP is no longer sold in the store and be wary of online sellers as they may try to scam you.

Problem installing USB to serial port connector/brifge


When an USB drive makes problem on one computer only then an updated mainboard/chipset driver may help.
If it doesn't help then it may be just incompatible with the computer's USB ports - that's not unusual. Therefore it's helpful to have an additional USB PCI card as alternative in the computer, best with NEC chip.
Cheap USB extension cables may cause problems too. The thinner and longer the higher the risk for problems. The plugs wear out in time.
USB ports on front of the computer are more problematic because the USB is leaded by a cable thru the computer case which is full of interferences. Furthermore the port a mechanically stressed, so the usually fail sooner or later.
Other attached USB devices may interfere, usually such ones that don't use a default Windows driver and which permanently transfer data, such as web cams.
Cheap USB hubs die slowly. First symptoms are disappearing devices and communication freezes.
If an USB device has been detected as 'unknown device' once it might be necessary to delete it in the device manager and replug it then.
Another try is a complete USB device clearing by Microsoft DEVCON and the RenewUSB.bat from http://www.robvanderwoude.com/devcon.html
A cleanup can be done manually too. Put the following two lines into Notepad and save them as DevManager.CMD:
set DEVMGR_SHOW_NONPRESENT_DEVICES=1
devmgmt.msc
Started thru this DevManager.CMD the Windows device manager shows non present devices too if you check "View" -> "Show hidden devices". Under "Disk drives", devices shown with a light gray icon are non present. Just delete them. Same procedure under "Storage volumes". There may be a lot of them...
My commandline tool DriveCleanup does it for all currently non present storage volumes and USB drives.
Microsoft has set up a page for General USB troubleshooting in Windows XP
To have DEVMGR_SHOW_NONPRESENT_DEVICES=1 set permanently, download and doubleclick this file: DevMgr_Show_1.reg. After next logon it takes effect.
It also sets DEVMGR_SHOW_DETAILS=1 to get the "Details" tab in the device's properies dialog under XP.

CD Burning gets stuck


Try this: : Decreasing the burn speed If the drive is not recognizing the disc at all, skip to Step 4. Decrease the CD writer's burn speed by half to increase the likelihood of a successful burn. Decreasing the burn speed is a quick, easy way of increasing successful disc burning sessions, at the expense of taking more time to create a disc. The following steps are for Windows XP only. For Windows 98 and Me, decrease the write speed from within the software that you are using to write discs (RecordNow, Easy CD Creator)
  1. Click Start , and then My Computer .
  2. Right-click the drive icon, and select Properties .
  3. Select the Recording tab and reduce the Current Write Speed by half (for example, from 16x to 8x).
  4. Click OK and close the My Computer window. Try burning a CD. If the drive fails to create the CD, go to the next step.
Step 4: Setting up disc recording in Windows XP If the computer does not have Windows XP, skip to Step 6. If you are using Windows XP, use the following steps to ensure that native burning is enabled:
  1. Place a blank disc into the drive. NOTE: If the error <drive letter> is not accessible. Incorrect function. " opens, close it and continue using these steps to correct this problem.
  2. Click Start , and then My Computer .
  3. Right-click the writable drive icon, and select Properties .
  4. If a Recording tab is shown, select the Recording tab, select Enable CD recording on this drive , and then click OK . Try burning a disc again. Continue to the next Step if you are unable to burn a disc. If a recording tab is not shown, continue using these steps. Figure 2: Enable CD recording on this drive c00368150.gif
  5. Look for a Recording tab: If the Recording tab is not shown, Windows XP has not detected the drive as a recordable device. Use the following sub steps to enable the Recording tab:
    1. Click Start , Run , and type regedit in the Open field.
    2. Backup the registry: Select My Computer from the list, click File , Export , type a name that you will remember, and click Save .
    3. Click OK , and browse to the following registry key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\CD Burning\Drives
    4. Click the Volume key that matches the CD/DVD drive that is capable of writing discs. If only one drive is installed, one volume key is listed. If you have more than one drive, examine the data values (by double-clicking them in the right pane) to find the correct drive.
    5. With the volume key selected in the left pane, double-click the Drive Type value in the right-pane. Figure 3: Drive Type registry value (CDRW) c01367502.jpg
    6. Type the number 1 in the Value Data field if the drive is capable of recording to CDRW discs (including CD-R discs). Type a 2 if the drive cannot write to CDRW discs but can burn CD-R discs. NOTE: A value of 3 indicates that the drive is only capable of reading discs. Changing this value to a 1 or 2 enables Windows to view the drive as a recordable drive.
    7. Click OK , and close Registry Editor.

Windows includes a feature called Active Desktop. One of the symptoms of Active Desktop is that it can hide all your desktop icons. To disable active desktop, right-click on the desktop, choose Properties, go to the Web tab, and uncheck "Show Web Content on My Active Desktop".

If that does not work right away, try rebooting the PC after making the above changes..

C:/,d:/ problem


hi there,
firstly u had a virus on your system... but u know this aleady... so lets deal with what the virus left behind...

try this out:-

Open the Windows "Start" menu and select "Run...". In the Run box type

C:\autorun.inf -r -h -s and click OK
then
E:\autorun.inf -r -h -s
OK and so on for all affected drives.

Finally check the volume root of each drive for autorun.inf file.
Is that file present in any drive? If so, manually delete it.

then do this:-

1. You have to tell Windows to show hidden and protected system files first.

2. Then you should search your computer for all instances of files with the name autorun (ANY extension) and delete them. DO NOT DOUBLE-CLICK on discs that have any such files because you will again be infected!

3. Launch regedit - but make sure u backup your reg. first...

a ) Find the key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/Microsoft/Windows NT/Current Version/Winlogon
and check the value of the parameter Userinit. This should read C:\WINDOWS\system32\userinit.exe, nothing more.
If Windows is installed on another disc, then, of course the disc will be indicated.

b ) Completely delete the following key:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Microsoft/Windows/Current Version/Explorer/MountPoints2.

This last step should be repeated for all user accounts on your computer. You should then restart your computer and that's it.
