THis is happening when the program that patronize the shortcut is no longer existent in the system ...or the location was changed ...Just delete all short cuts that does that ...and make new ones from the start /all programs ..or for programs installed in a different director (folder) and not in C/program files.. just go to the installation location and make a new short cut.. If my computer and my documents ...and the other original windows desktop icons make the same ...just delete them ..than ..right click on desktop ...choose properties..than desktop ...here you will find customize desktop ...and in there just tick all cases for icons you want on desktop ...This action will place again the original icons on desktop ..For the rest just make new shortcuts from the original execution of the program ...
Usually when a computer won't shutdown in WinXP it is trying to close many files. It sounds as if you have something hanging up and until you find the specific driver this will continue.
I would first check your registry with some type of utility like Norton Disk Doctor which checks and removes unused and garbage from your registry. This would be at least a first start to find out what is happening.
Mine has crashed. So has yours. It has crashed. You must try to boot it with a boot disc made for the operating system. As its 8 years old the manufacturer wont sell you a boot disk but you can buy a boot disk for the correct version ofwindows
Hello! I recommend that if you have a second desktop or laptop try to install those devices on it, so you can check if your old PC is the source of the problem or it is one of the devices. I think the most probable reason for this could be a power failure on that old desktop pc, that results on bad management of USB ports
If computer is not powering on then open u r cpu and check the SMPS i.e Switch mode power supply which converts AC to DC it gives a output of 5v & 12v in that the 20 pin or 24 pin connector which is connected to the mother board remove that and short the wires Green and Black and make sure to remove all the power connectors i.e,hard disk,Cdrom or cd writer or DVD writer or any other device and one more connecto which is a four pin connector which is connected to the mother board please remove and test the 20 or 24 pin connector by shorting green and black and behind the smps u have a power cord of ac 220v just plug it and switch on if smps fan rotates that means it's fine then the problem willbe on the mother board just try this
Why would you want to connect to Windows? Yecch. Go to OSNews.com and check around for an interesting OS and filesystem combination.
Still, I'd chalk it up to your having plugged another bootable volume into the machine (e.g. a CD ROM) or otherwise changing the setup from what you brought to GeekSquad. Honestly, you've described the problem circumstances quite poorly. Does it not beep before booting -any- OS?
