Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I've inherited this ic power nc5560 notebook at work. several people have had the thing before I got it and it's so loaded down with **** (apps, files and other garbage) that the things is maddening to use. It takes forever to do anything with this beast. It's got XP, an AMD mobile Sempron processor and I'd like to do a factory restore from start-up (if that's possible for one of these). How do I accomplish this?

Typically each hardware manufacturer has a key stroke to hit during power on that will take you a system recovery mode (basically reload the operating system that was loaded when sold). The hard drive usually will have a second partition that is not visible inside Windows. This partition holds the "image" of the base operating system. If anyone deleted this partition you cannot factory reset without install CDs.

Alternative: Try booting into safe mode by hitting F8 during boot (this will not load all the garbage apps). Once in safe mode uninstall as many application that you do not need, then boot windows normally and run disk defrag a few time to help improve performance. Hope this helps.

Hi,

If your dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have nottaken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then youneed to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should takeplace. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causesfor your dryer to fail.

Hi Danny.
this could be a couple off things wrong here.
1,could be a faulty dvd player.
2,could do with having a lens cleaning disc put through it.
3,could be a faulty lens reader.
if i was you before i do anything big to it i would run a lens cleaning disc through it and see if it cleans the lens that reads the discs.
if this does not work i would take it back,or get someone to have a look at it for you.

Can you check the function buttons and make sure the primary display is set to show the output on the laptop. Try repairing your OS. If not then re-install the os. As you are saying till the time windows gets loaded, all works fine so it seems the issue isn't really the hardware.

If it does the same thing w/ the battery removed and just on AC, it's a power regulator problem on the motherboard. If it works with the battery out, the battery is dead and you need a new one.
