Spyware refers to software that collects useful information from your personal computer and sends to another computer without your permission. The term spyware is different from viruses and worms because it doesn't self-replicate however it is designed to make use of infected computers for some commercial gain. Main motive of spyware is to deliver unwanted pop-up advertisements and theft of confidential information. It may cause Internet connection failure and some printing problems. Spyware can be installed via file-swapping programs that are generally used to download music and movies from Internet. If it is installed on your system it monitors your all Internet related activities and then transmits your private information to other party.

Please immediately do the following:


Update your virus control and do a scan

Use your registry cleaner program if you have one

Use your spyware program if you have one

Go to toolbar>tools>internet options>general tab> and delete all of your cookies

go to Start>All programs>Accessories>system tools>clean disc and do it

If you do not have spyware program, go to www.tucows.com and type in shareware spyware program and download a free or share program and run it. The most likely cause of your problem is spyware.

In the lower right corner of your screen do you have alot of little icons? These indicate proggys running in the background and they can slow you down considerably. Please tell me what you have and I will tell yo how we can get rid of them so that they don;t run until you want to use them.

also check your desktop for icons you don;t ever use. you can right click on them and delete them. This does not delete the program.


When all this is done, restart your computer and lets see what you have now.

Is an emachine boot disk W2828 compatible with compaq presario desk topS4000v series?


No.

When Windows is put on a computer it assigns hash values to certain major hardware components;

1) Processor
2) Motherboard chipset
3) BIOS program, version, and date
4) Harddrive
5) Graphics chipset

Instead, I would like to post that you can get the Restoration Disk, for your Compaq.

THE disk.

On the back of the desktop is the Serial Number in a white Service Tag. S/N = Serial Number
Only give this to an authorized HP representative.
(HP bought out Compaq)

In the US the disk is free.
The shipping and handling is not.

$17 for a 5 to 7 day ship, $24 for a 2 to 3 day ship.
Call 1-800-474-6836
24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Write the Serial Number down to give to the nice representative.

Outside the US,

http://www8.hp.com/us/en/contact-hp/ww-contact-us.html

After you install the Restoration Disk in the computer, and when asked, choose Repair. (Non-Destructive Installation)

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

I have compaq presario cq45. When I start laptop First start fan for 5 Second then blink caps lock and num lock LED .and display not visible.I chack RAM that is proper ..


If the fan stops after 5 seconds and you can't get a display your motherboard, GPU, or CPU are shot. Remove the ram, and power it on if you hear no system beeps your, GPU, or motherboard are shot. Probably cheaper to replace laptop then repair, just remove your HDD, so you or someone else can retrieve your information for you.

I have a Compaq Presario S4000V that is giving me repeating long beeps when I turn it on. The beep may go 10 or 20 seconds and then pause for about 5 seconds and then do the same thing again.


Hello
Usually this kind of beep code is an indication of a cpu or processor heat problem.
Make sure the processor fan is running by opening up the case and looking at it.

Also try claening out the inside of the pc,you can use a can of compressed air and a vacum cleaner for this.If the processor fan is not working get a new one,it should always be on when the pc is on.

Will an Intel® Pentium® M


I don't know your exact CPU specs but I've taken a single core Intel M processor 2.0 GHZ from a Dell 800 laptop and put it into my wife's X1000 and have had no problems running XP SP3. My own x1000 computer reports Intel Pentium M 1600MHZ as CPU type.

I have a dell 20" LCD monitor. But Presario S4000V doesn't fit for that monitor. Please let me know what can i do. Change "Video card"? thanks


Have you tried changing the Resolution settings to "Recommended"? If so, then you may have to purchase a newer Video Card. Look-up your motherboard 1st, then go by the Recommendations of the motherboards BRAND and Chipset of Video Cards. If you have nVidia Chipset, get GeForce or nVidia card, VIA, SiS work fine w/ these (nVidia Chipsets) Video Cards. But, if the motherboard is of Intel Manuf, you will want the ATI card. Get at least a 256MB Memory card(512MB is better) and read-up on the cards resolution to make sure it fits your screen size/dimensions. Good Luck. To find out your motherboard type/brand, dwnld. CPU-Z for free online. It will tell you about your CPU, Motherboard, Memory, and alot more.

Desktop freezes up so often or gets logout by itself & reboot?!


This could be a couple of things, overheating may cause it to randomly shut down, but if it freezes up on you then it could be a motherboard issue or memory. When you boot up your computer, does it beep at you at all? More than 1 beep signifies a problem. Right click on the my computer icon and click properties, see how much memory it says you have, does that number look accurate? A bad memory module could cause similar problems. A bad motherboard would, in my experience, more often freeze when you first boot up.

Compaq Presario R3150US shuts down with IE7, cpu usage goes up


Have you inatalled the latest service pack before you upgraded to IE7?
If not, suggest you un-install IE7, install the service pack, reboot computer and then upgrade to IE7.
If IE7 causes you problems the revert back to IE6.
