Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have windows Xp running on my desktop. Had no issues starting it up and working on it until a couple of days ago when suddenly it won't let me get past the initial logon screen, where it prompts me for a password (didn't used to before) and says domain blah-blah missing. Just won't let me go past it. Not even in safe mode. What do I do?

Searching for a program by typing it in the start menu no longer brings up the program.

It is quite possible that while you were 'mucking' around, you may have changed some setting that should have remained unchanged.

Rather than trying to figure out & undo everything you've done, I'd recommend restoring your computer to a previous point in time (using System Restore) to before it was 'broken'.

To get into System Restore:
1) go into the Win 7 Control Panel,
2) click System,
3) click System Protection,
4) click System Protection tab,
5) click System Restore.
6) select an appropriate Restore Point.

Dc5700 won't connect usb mouse and keyboard after disconnect

why run dead XP?, is the PC ONLINE? or off/?
The USB plug and play is failing,
you do know MS killed dead Plug and Play for XP 4 years ago right?
the top failure of any pc running XP would be USB devices.
USB devices are extensive in scope, endless types
and top of the list are mice, and keyboards.(vast types exist))

The PnP engine scans the local driver cache first.
if no mouse (example 1) is found to match your unstated mouse
then it must do what? go on line, to
and MS pulled the plug..... just like they did
W2000 and vista. and XP 4+ years ago !

time to upgrade, for sure.

a counter argument would be that the virus magnet XP is infected.
as ALL ARE NOW and worse every day forward!! for eternity

The sound on my laptop has been fine up until a couple of days ago, it makes an anoying crackling sound through both internal speakers and my headphones an i know my headphones are fine,???? help me please

There are several reasons why you could suddenly be getting a crackling noise. My best guess is you have the laptop near some kind of magnetic source - maybe a cell phone? My Boost mobile phone would do this to my speakers. Is this possibly the cause?

Dvd player cannot be launched?

Thank you for your request.

There are a couple of possible solutions.If the first does not work, try the next, and ultimately you can call customer service for Toshiba or the company you bought the system from.

First I would try to restart the system.

Second uninstall and reinstall software.

Third Check drivers and other software relating to the dvd player, or disc drives.

Forth to call customer service, there could be more complicated software issues or hardware issues at this point.
