I want to restore my sony vaio pcv-re550 to factory state condition. my sister gave me the comuter but she doesn't know where any of the disc are.


As soon as you power up your system keep tapping F8 repeatedly until another screen pops up.
You can select reinstall Operating system (ie windows) / restore factory settings etc from there, Choose option which is suitable for yourslef. By doing it this way it reinstalls the OS that is already stored on your Hard drive so no disc is required.

Hope this helps and please rate

Froze from start


Something might be freezing explorer.exe on startup.

Try:

go to Task Manger (ctrl+alt+delete)
go to the processes tab
find explorer.exe and click it then click end process
and then yes to the dialogue that comes up.
now go to file (still in task manager)
and type in explorer.exe

if it windows says cannot find file or whatever then hit browse and then find your way to C:\WINDOWS\ then find explorer.exe.

I have a Compaq labtop and when I turn it on, it remains on the Black Microsoft corporation page and won't progress any further. It's not even a year old yet. i can't log on or do anything. Please help!


This should be under PC Laptops, not desktops.

Start the laptop up. As soon as it starts, keep hitting the F8 key until you get a list of options that includes 'boot in safe mode'.

Try to boot in safe mode and let me know what happens.

Computer keeps shutting down for no reason. anytime you start up it has to go through several different screens. which takes about 10-15 minutes. computer is an Acer Aspire 5100.


You need to let us know what screens keep coming up. The only screens SHOULD be the initial POST screen (which is usually black with info about your system), then the windows start up screen. Then your desktop should show. If there are numerous screens popping up after this - are they browser screens (ie. Internet Explorer or Firefox)? If so, you're probably infested with spyware.
BTW - some systems hide the POST screen with their own logo, like Compaq.
Send more info, and it will help in fixing this.

True Vector


Click the Start button. Choose Run. Type in msconfig, then click OK. In the window that comes up, click the tab Startup (on the top line). Look for TrueVector Service and uncheck the box next to it. Don't change anything else. Click OK. The next time you start the computer, Msconfig will pop up to tell you you've made a change. Tell it not to start next time and close the window.
That should do it.
By the way, you said you DELETED Zone Alarm. You can't just delete a program. You need to remove it by going to Control Panel and then Add/Remove Programs. Otherwise there will be remnants of the program that might still try to run.
