If you have your XP disc then put it into the drive and shut the computer down.

You then need to boot the computer into the bios, normally by pressing either F1, or DEL immediatlly after switching the machine on.

Then need to look for the boot options, it should say something llike 'primary boot device = hdd'

You need to change it to CD-ROM

save the settings and exit

The PC will reboot and detect the XP disc in the drive, you should get an option to either repair or clean re-install or something similar.

Choose 'repair' and let the system do its business.

When it is done it will probably restart the computer, make sure when it does that you enter the bios and change the boot option back to HDD, again save the settings and exit.

Hopefully the computer should bootup as normal.

If it does un-install Limewire, and tell your daughter not to use it again!! Limewire is one of the biggest sources of viruses and trojans, and it may have corrupted the file in question

If the repair does not work try pressing F8 continuously when booting and enter safe mode, if you can get into the desktop, make a backup of all your documents, music etc. then reboot the PC, it MAY boot as normal.

If it dos not, I would suggest re-installing XP fresh. That way you will get rid of any trojans or viruses that will be lurking around. But remember you will need all the drivers for the system before you do this.

Hope this is of some help.


Please remember to rate.

The easiest ways is this:

1. You have to collect a bootable XP CD ( get it from friends or download from bit-torrent and burn a bootable image to a CD.

2. Now change your boot sequence in bios of your computer, CDROM must be the first one.

3. Then insert the CD and boot from it, start a new installation.

4. During the installation process the installer will find the old Windows folder ( most likely to be C:\Windows) and tell you that the installer found an old installation, if you want to repair that.

5. Select that option, and follow the steps as prompted by the installer. If your hard disk is not totally damaged ( it seems that it is not damaged, otherwise windows would fail to recognize it during device checking), you will get your old installation and data back.

Good Luck

Gateway MT6840 unexpectedly shut down and wouldn't

First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

Remove the Power Cord, Open the Case and remove one of thememory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x onit with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the nextmemory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set itaside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If itboots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and putit into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

KDL52EX700 shuts down and restarts

If it is showing a blue scree of death (BSOD) and shuts down before you can read the error message try this:
Turn the computer off, then turn it on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE MODE. Scroll down below Safe Mode and you will see an option to Disable Automatic Restart. Select it and reboot your machine. Next time it boots up you will be able to read the error message. You'll probably need a system disc or repair disc to fix the blue screen error message.

My laptop keeps turning itself off and on when I

Your computer may not be properly cooled, if it gets to hot it will shut off. One of the safety feature to make sure your computer does not melt.
Please check your temps with a desktop utility or through your bios.
To see the error message of your computer Right click on “My Computer”>Click “Advance” Tab”>Click on “Start-up and Recovery” and make sure the box that says “Automatically reboot” is unchecked.
Then you should be able to see what the error message is, write it down and google it.
This will give you a better idea on why your computer is shutting off.

My computer won't shut down it just keeps restarting

The most common shut down problem is that the system will reboot rather than shutting down. In most cases, the reboot is triggered because Windows XP is designed to reboot after a critical failure. To stop windows from rebooting in case of a failure, you need to take the following steps:
Right click on My Computer, Select Properties, Click on advance tab, Click on Settings under Startup and Recovery, Uncheck the option Automatically Restart under System failure, Click Ok twice and try to shutdown the pc. If it shows any error code then let me know

sounds to me as if the memory card was only part of the issues with the laptop, if you had some viruses and it destroyed the memory, then they didn't do a very good job of cleaning all the viruses out of the computer, you might be better off replacing the hard drive,www.consumer has very reasonable prices on hard drives and memories for computers, you might try finding both them in their web site, and replace the items you need to replace:

1. hard drive specific to the one you have on board now. 2.Ram memory card Specific to MFG's requirements.

That will fix your problem, the re-load your XP operating system and your good to go after you setup automatic updates and download NEW ANTI VIrus. I recommend Avast Free home addition anti Virus download, you will be TOTALLY Protected, and stay off web sits such as Lime Wire, and Blubster, be careful what web sites you visit.

Hopefully this will fix u r problem, I gaurantee it!
