Question about Dell Inspiron 1300 Notebook

1 Answer

Regarding the issue of icons flashing and disappearing

Thanks for trying to help. As you guessed system restore doesn't work, i'm not sure why but I have heard from a lot of people that the system restore feature hasn't worked by them either. I was hoping on an idea OTHER THAN reinstalling windows. That is ALWAYS a last resort. I can't afford to lose all my data. There must be another way. Thanks!

Actually, if you do a system repair, you won't lose any data. Go past the repair from recovery console to the next screen in the set up. It will prompt you R for repair or esc to install a fressh copy. Hit R, this will repair the registry and operating system files without deleting any data or installed programs.

Icons disappear when I try to use mouse or keyboard. Cannot access any programs or even start menu


Hi,

Try booting the computer to the safe mode, create one more User Account and then check if the issue persist in the new user. If not, then issue was with the previous user account. If yes, try performing a system restore from the safe mode and check if it helps.


Thanks!!!!

AVG will no install error 0x800736b1 also retrirve my desktop


Hi there. My name is Alex and Im here to help solve your problem

First of all, AVG has always had a problem installing when windows updates are enabled and download and install automatically. I would recommend uninstalling all updates that have been installed to your computer and disable automatic updates which I will explain to you below

To uninstall the updates.
Click start, settings and click control panel.
On the icon add and remove programs, please double click
You will now see all the programs and updates installed on your computer. The microsoft updates are located near to the bottom of the list and there may be a lot of them installed. You can only uninstall one update at a time. You may be prompted that uninstalling a windows update may cause a program not to work properly, this is normal so you can continue uninstalling them. When you have uninstalled these updates please restart your computer.

To disable the automatic updates

Right click on your icon My computer or My pc which is located on the desktop or on the start menu (if you are running windows xp) and select properties
You will then see a sub menu called 'Automatic updates' and inside this menu you will have the choice to disable the updates

If you are using windows xp and you have system restore enabled on your computer, then you will be able to take the computer back to an earlier time when it was working correctly. Please save all documents first to insure that nothing will be lost if you decide to do a 'system restore'. There is a very friendly wizard to help you restore your computer. You can get to the system restore by clicking start, programs, accesories, system tools and selecting system restore.

Regarding your problem about your desktop disappearing, to restore your icons on the desktop, right click anywhere on the desktop and select organise icons and be sure that the heading 'show desktop icons' is ticked. This will restore your desktop items

Last of all try installing AVG, if you still experience problems with this issue, then please let me know. Im happy to help

Try a system restore if it will allow you. If not you may need to run a system repair with your recovery or operating system disc.

After startup, all icons and taskbar disappear...


Sounds like Spyware or Adware causing your issues. Try scanning it using http://superantispyware.com/ or AGV Free.
