Shut it down anyway and immediately turn it ack on and do a thourough cleanup. update your virus control and run it> go to Tools (at top) of screen and then internet options and clear your history and cookies>go to all programs> accessories>system tools.clean disc and do that little chore.. If you have a registry cleaner program run that also. When you are all finished try shutting the computer down again, This time if it doesnt work, go and ahead and shut it off anyway and turn it back on and do a defrag (same place as clean disc. Good luck and let me know..

How di get my computor out of safe mode


If you turn off your computer incorrectly - by just turning off the power switch or unplugging it, Windows senses and remembers this. Then, the next time you start your computer Windows loads in safe mode.

To prevent this, be sure to shut down your PC properly by clicking on Start, Turn off Computer, and Turn Off. The next time you start your computer Windows should load normally .

Hello tvernia, hi, unplug your computer, press the power switch on and off several times, does the switch behave normally? do you hear the "click" , if no have the power switch replaced.

My computor shuts down after 30 minutes or more


I would start with a heat event problem. Check the easy stuff first, are the fans running, is there a lot of dust inside the computer. And that failing, get some artic 5 pop off the heat sync and apply a skinny little coat.
Should that not do it, next look to the video card, that can give you hangs and shut downs. Make sure it is seated properly. There are more things to check but that just might get you started for now. If this doesn't help please let us know.

Computor game


Your can copy the saved game file in the saved games folder of SIMS to another location so your kid need not repeat her game. Then just re-install the SIMS application and copy back the saved game file to the saved game folder of SIMS.

Windows xp-winchat not working


Both computors must be connected to the same network{LAN} or Internet as you probably know.Also ,each computor must be running a similar Protocol,such as TCP/IP.Please also recheck the ip address and whether you have not been barred by your destination computor.Regards

On/Off problems


It sound as if there is a system file error. If you havent already, try booting up in safe mode (F8) on start up and when and if it allows you highlight 'Last known good configuration' and hit enter for a restart. If still nothing you need to insert your windows installation disc and hit enter when prompted. This will run a file installation, but not a format and when the files have installed you will have the choice to install windows or repair; select repair for system file installation.
