You may have an infection.
If you (your work) are backed up, I would try reformatting the drive to start completely fresh.

Incidentally, while trying to get a customer's older HP functioning again and numerous tries to restore from the 8 CDs that came with it, I found defective files on two disks.
I ordered a new set; $80.
It had one bad CD.
After an angry (maybe threatening) phone call to India about the defective set, they shipped a new set; $22 (shipping)
It had TWO disks unreadable.
I finally put together a working set from the 24 CDs to finally get the restore to stick.
BTW, The disk verification was being done on my shop system, not the HP.
I no longer accept HP or Compaq anythings.

My laptop keeps shutting down


A little more information would help, does it get hot or is the fan doing overtime! Laptops are notorious for sucking in air to cool it as well as all manner of dust fluff and hair which block the air flow and cause over heat and consequently shuts itself down do avoid damage. Ckeck and clean air vents.

I have a presario v6000, and when I turn it on it keeps going to the screen that says safe mode, start normally, last known good configuration. This page keeps repeating itself. How can I get to the log in...


Hi ,you should only get that if you're not shutting down , does the laptop turn off when shutting down ?

The other thing is when starting up, it has a problem talking to a device driver therefore putting itself in safe mode,

goto the following to update the drivers etc.

try this:
1. shut down your laptop
2. remove battery and unplug ac power
3. keep it that way for 2-3 minutes and then put the battery back in, plug the power cord and turn it on.

Toshiba Satellite A105 laptop keeps shutting off for no reason.


I think your fan might be broken....if the fan doesn't cool the pc,the processor or the chipset will automatically shut down the pc to prevent burning hardware.Or your hard drive might keep crashing.Oh yeah and abstract from this i don't recommend ever using mcaffe

Just check in the power options that anything is not set to shutdown if idle like the hard drive. it sounds really to be processor overheating problem, just check around the side and underside vents for any blockage. Does your fan appear to cut in at any point and stay on or not come on at all, as these things ay be a clue to the problem if it's the processor overheating and shutting down.

System unstable


This could be a couple of things, the shutdown will probably be because of the overheating, check for blockage around fan extraction area. The other could be that there is a virus or spyware running, taking over the processors work and causing a shut down or overheat error, check for both. The other could be a driver conflict, try doing a system restore to before the problem started.
