Hi everyone, id like to drop a few coins on the table.

To start you will have to clarify some facts with us please.

To start, you mention the system is "new", how new is new and did you build it yourself or was it prebuilt in a store or factory?
please state your hardware details (model numbers, type and bios version if possible) and operating system version and if it is x86(32bit) or x64(64bit).

It sounds like you built the system yourself maybe with the help of a friend "its all new".

If it was built by yourself or a friend then you may need to aquire the the exact operating timmings for the ram and correct voltages and set them in the bios, not to auto but to what the ram provider states to be the specific settings.

Have you ever had the system running smoothly since you have had it???

i will not provide anymore info till i am sure you will not viod any warrenties with any help i provide you with so please clarify the questions i haver for you,
thanks

Recent Hardware Changes. Corrupt drivers for any recently installed hardware can crash the system. To get rid of the corrupted drivers, do the following:

a. Uninstall all recently added hardware.
b. Try to restore the system to a previous restore point
c. Reboot the system and return to a previous stable configuration if possible
d. Remove all external peripherals (printer, cameras, scanners, etc) and connections until the computer returns to normal. 5. Bad video/graphics card. At this point, if your computer is still under warranty, its time to call for help. If not, you can get a computer geek to come to your house (it is cheaper to take your computer to their store) or try to fix the problem yourself.

a. Is AGP/PCI video card compatible with your operating system? If you are experienced with opening up the chassis and resetting cards, reseat the video card, and try again.
b. Check the pins on the cable connectors and see that they are not bent or broken.
c. Never attempt to open the monitor. Turn on the monitor and try to reboot the computer again. If this doesn’t work, go to Step 6.

6. BIOS – the Binary Operating System may be corrupted – Use of Safe Mode to boot system.

a. Try starting the computer in the safe mode. Restart the computer and see the point to which it boots up before you get the blank screen.
b. Press F8 as the computer starts to boot. (For HP and Compaq computers with VISTA, use F10, For HP Pavilions with XP or earlier version of OS, use F1). Use the arrow keys to select the safe mode and press Enter. Remember that NUM LOCK should be OFF for the arrow keys to function.
c. If Windows launches before you can choose the safe mode, restart computer and go to step a.
d. You can choose “Safe mode with command prompt” option if you know how to use MS-DOS
e. You can choose “Last known good configuration” to go back to the last known safe shutdown state.
f. If you have added any drivers or corrupted any files the last time you used the computer, the safe mode will help you get back to the state before the changes, when the computer was running smoothly.

7. BIOS – the booting software may be corrupted – Use of Recovery Console to boot system

a. If the recovery console is already installed on the system, one of the options you see while the system is initially booting up will be “Microsoft Windows Recovery Console”. If it’s not already on the system, it can also be accessed through the network during “command prompt with network” option in safe mode.
b. Recovery console can also be installed at the time of need from the CD-ROM. Go to the following link for additional info : http://support.microsoft.com/kb/301645
c. Recovery console helps to Enable or disable services. If Windows informs us during boot up that a file is corrupted or missing, then we can use the Recovery console to copy files from a CD to the computer to repair the corrupted or missing information.
d. You can also recover the system by reconfiguring a service that may be preventing your computer from starting correctly. (FIXMBR, FIXBOOT, etc)
e. For a list of Recovery Console commands, search : http://www.microsoft.com/

Dirty connections on the memory can cause these problems.
Turn off the computer.
Remove the power cable from the power supply or unplug from wall.
Remove the memory sticks.
Carefully clean each contact with a clean pencil eraser.
Carefully clean the contacts with alcohol.
Replace all the memory sticks.
Turn on the computer, and check.
There are small free memory testing programs which can be loaded fat the bios screen from a floppy or cdrom. Search for free memory test program. It does not need to boot, because it can test the memory before booting. It will take time, and worth every minute of time to test your memory. It will tell which stick is at fault, if there are faults. You could also test each stick by itself, by leaving out the other, and only have one in the first slot.

Hope this will help. One such program is called memtest86.. http://www.memtest86.com/. One boots to Linux, and will test your memory without booting Windows. Nice thing.. FREE. Others are on this page as well.

My windows crashes to blue screen


You have a fragmentation problem and that is easy to do. Start your system by making sure it goes on Safe Mode. Once it goes to Safe Mode with Networking then run the Scan Disk and Defragmenter if running Windows 98 and XP. Win 7 has it in the Administration tools in which you would have to go to the Computer management page and start the application from there. At the same time see if you can download drivers for your system so when you restart the system it will run normally and it won't freeze or crash to a blue screen.

Blue Screens can appear only if there's been a hardware change to the system or it's on another system that isn't configured for the motherboard it was originally using. So make sure it's the same system that you were using or would have to find the system that the hard drive was installed and shifted to another for various reasons. The system could have been on eBay or Amazon so make sure it wasn't sold recently.

If it is then you would have to download the drivers for the motherboard that you are using and install them.

Then see if you get a blue screen.

How to speed up your PC? PC slow is caused by problems in the registry that accrue over time. Installing and uninstalling programs leave behind fragments — stray files, orphaned startup tasks, corrupted drivers. Over time the registry starts to get bogged down and conflicts emerge. Left unchecked, your system will become increasingly unstable, run more slowly and crash more frequently.
The Solution
RegTool is the easy answer to registry problems. It conducts deep scans of your registry to check for errors and conflicts, then repairs and optimizes the registry to peak performance and stability. Periodic scans will keep your registry "clean" and will greatly enhance your system's performance and stability. You'll see immediate increases in speed and decreases in system conflicts. Do a free scan and speepup your PC now!

I bought my wife this laptop (emachines G640)only a few weeks ago we've had a few issues at start up when it goes to the blue screen and the the screen where it says there was an issue and to start...


The stop error screen or bug check screen commonly called the blue screen of death (also known as a BSoD, bluescreen, or "blue screen of doom.

slasher_x_22.jpg
In reality, the most common cause of blue screen errors is a device driver problem. Outdated, incorrect or corrupt drivers can cause the system to encounter a STOP error, resulting in the BSOD.
Often, if you're lucky, the problem will resolve itself with a simple reboot and you may never have to worry about it again. More typically though, the BSOD is a harbinger of trouble and you may find yourself faced with another and another until you throw up your hands in frustration... but all is not lost.

So the easiest way to try and fix a blue screen error is to reinstall and update your system's device drivers. This is if you are able to boot into safe mode (Press and hold the F8 key during boot up). This will ensure that all driver bugs are fixed and that all hardware has the correct driver. If you know which device caused the error, you can update or reinstall that driver first. The file name in the blue screen of death can help identify the driver. Look for a file with the .SYS extension and search for that file name. There is a neat program on the net that can fix this problem, it's called DriverFinder, you can get it here.

If this doesn't work or you can't think or find the corrupt driver you could use System Restore (If it is enabled) to go back to a time where you didn't get the error. To use the system restore utility, go to 'start/all programs/accessories/system tools/system restore.

slasher_x_24.jpg
Sometimes though the blue Screen of death can be caused by faulty or loose rame cards. Check that your RAM modules are inserted correctly and arn't clogged with dust.

My pc is so slow plz ell something


How long have you had this computer. Over time no matter what windows will slow down. Your best bet is to remove as many programs as you can from starting up when you boot the computer. This will speed up the boot time etc. Also I would need all the stats of the computer, but the sure fire way to get any computer running again is to back up all critical files and reformat and reinstall windows.
Thank you,

My pc is running slow


Hello

There could be several reasons for this:

[Software type]
1. There are too many trash files (temporary files left after some program crashes or uninstallation; temporary internet files and small amount of free memory after all)
2. Your computer Registry should be cleaned and optimized
3. Your hard disks should be defragmented
4. Some components have bad or corrupted drivers
5. Viruses, trojans and other malware may slow down your PC performance
6. Too many programs running at Startup or in your SysTray
7. Inacurate size of Virtual Memory
My advice would be to use this " Faster Computer Now" guide at:
http://tinyurl.com/yzvb3eg

[Hardware type]
1. If your computer wasn't fast from begining, consider upgrading RAM and/or Processor (see your computer mainboard's documentations for available options)
2. Hardware mullfunction

Of course there are more reasons, but I just mentioned mostly common
