Hello,

You will need to restart the computer again, and as you see the monitor light up you will need to start pressing the F8 key on the keyboard. This will take you to a special diagnostic startup menu. In that menu you will need to use the cursor keys and choose safe mode and press enter. After pressing enter you may see an option asking you to select the operating system. If you do just select it with the cursor keys on the keyboard and press enter. If not, just continue with the next steps.

You will see a list of files scroll down the screen. There is no need to worry its just a list of drivers. After that list stops you see see a dialog that advises you are running in safe mode. It will give you the option of staying in safe mode by clicking yes or you can choose No to enter the System Restore program. Once there try choosing an earlier date.

Hopefully that will correct the issue. Please remember to rate this solution.

Thanks

Need to set my laptop to an earlyer date


Its very simple....go for a system restore and set your laptop to a early date. In the meanwhile if you had deleted any files, you can get them back as well. This is the best weapon online technical support technicians go for.

Booting takes more time or sometime system hangs while booting. While opening new applications, Error crops up!


You may have to re-nstall windows xp, but that's the last thing that you would want to do because it requires formatting your hard disk. Ummm it could be a virus, but i think that you should by some more ram. Ram is the memory in your computer that keeps everything on the screen. You can get ram at ebay or craigslist. If you are able to, go to start, control panel, performance and maintenance, then in the left hand side there is a tab the says "See Also", in that box there is a windows program called system restore, open it. Make sure that you let the computer take its time. Don't force it to handle many processes at once because that can lead to crashing. Now back to system restore. Make sure that "Restore my computer to an earlyer time is selected, then click next. Try to choose a date that you think was before the computer became sluggush. Once you've chosen click next. Follow the instructions on the screen, click next and you should be promted to restart, so restart. Once it restarts it should restore while booting up. And it should work again.
