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

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.

Sir I have tally 5.4.Due to Power failure tally suffered a problem.There is Error''File damaged need to rewrite''I tried many times to rewrite but failed.How i solve this problem. - general forum - download page

Hello, susheelkashy

Sorry you are having this problem. Sounds like the program itself has become damaged. If these links don't help, try running check disk. This will fix file errors. Not one hundred percent, but it is worth the effort.

Click on My Computer, or for Vista machines Computer. Right click on Main Drive C: select properties from the drop down list.

Under the Tools tab, there are three group boxes. The first is for error checking. Click Check Now button, what this dialog box wants to know is what test you'd like to run. Place a check in the Automatically fix errors box and click start. After clicking start a message box will be displayed telling you that you will need to schedule a error checking runtime event, and that it will commence once you reboot your machine. Click schedule. Then reboot machine.

System shuts down after surfing the internet

Regarding the error code, all you need to do is update your driver. You can do this by downloading the most up to date driver from motorola here.

Unfortunately, it seems like this might be two seperate issues.

Sometimes machines, especially laptops but it will happen to desktops as well, will shutdown when they are overheated in an attempt to prevent damage to the physical hardware. Judging by the "after about 15 minutes" comment, I think this might have something to do with it as that 15 minute window would give a non-functioning fan or unventilated laptop enough time to overheat your machine.

If the driver update does not stop the random rebooting and you do not think the machine is hot when it reboots, do this:

right-click My Computer and choose Properties; click the Advanced tab. In Vista, click the Start button, type System, Properties, Advanced, and press Enter. Click Continue if prompted by User Account Control.

In all versions, click the Settings button under 'Startup and Recovery'. Uncheck the Automatically restart box, and click OK twice. The next time the problem occurs, instead of rebooting you will likely see a text screen reporting a system error. Report back with what error it gives you.

Good luck!

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

Toshiba Laptop

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!
