You don't have a display problem, you have a hard drive problem. It is probably a file system corruption. Insert the Windows XP install disk into your CD drive and boot to it. At the first setup screen, press R to repair windows from the recovery console. Once the recovery console loads, type chkdsk /r and then press Enter. Once this finishes, remove the CD and reboot. With any luck, you will be able to boot successfully, if not, come back and give details about what happens.

What your computer is telling you is that you're plugging a USB 2.0 device into a USB 1.0 port. The only way to tell would be using a process of elimination but for the most part you're almost always going to have a uniform set of ports meaning all USB 1.0 or USB 2.0. I wouldn't worry about this at all, the difference is minimal for speed and it won't make your PC faster... just the device you're plugging in.

It's a computer, there are no FAX instructions. If you have a modem in there, you can run FAX software and the problem is reduced to understanding the FAX software. Check out softpedia.com and Cnet for some examples of free FAX software....

Does it turn on for a few seconds and shut down? That sounds like a PSU failure. Try reseating the Memory mods, or remove 1 then the other, swap. Replace the CMOS battery. When you push the on/off button, it stays powered up? But does not boot? HDD spins? LED's blink?

Hello and thanks for using Fixya ...This issue you described it can have several different causes...first it can be a virus causing something and as a prevention the computer is turning itself down to avoid damages...and in this case you should be able to fix it by reinstalling the operation system from scratch ..using a bootable disk with the OS on ..and formatting the hard drive C partition during the installation to get rid of eventual bugs..Ifr after this operation the computer is still doing the same ..it indicates that the cause it is of a physical damage or compatibility issue..Chech the ram memory not to be damaged...and do this by uing the computer with only one module at the time ..and let it work untill it does the same or not...Keep the modules that do not cause the shut down ..and replace the others..If the shuting down is actually a restart ..and it does it after showing the blue screen error ..than the cause is almost for sure the Ram memory units...and even if they are not damaged...the cause can be just a compatibility issue ..Check on the web for the specs of the motherboard...and see what they say about the Ram memory speed amd maximum value ..For example ..if your computer was build to use Ram memory up to 533 mhz or 667 ...and you use same DDr2 modules but the speed is up to 800 Mhz ..it is possibleto work a while and after that to start making problems on start up ..and shuting down suddenly with no warning ..and work fine if you restart it ..but ...making the same sympthoms after a while ..(usually the interval is smaller after it is warming up ..)In this case you need to buy replacement and whith the exact specs like the ones in the manual..Also do not use the maximum value supported..but for example if you have 2 slots suporting 1 G each ...use one with 1G and one with 512 M and it will work for sure..another cause can be a CPU related ...if in BIOS settings it was by mistake or as a protection ..set a maximum allowed teperature...This will cause automatic shut down when the cpu gets to that temperature...The best way to avoid this ..is to get into BIOS ..and engage the optimal factory settings from the function key indicated by your Bios edition ..and after that use the F10 key to save the settings and exit..This will prevent the shut down if it is related with a strange setting made in bios..If after all these the issue is still present ..the only thing that can be damaged is the motherboard...and it is probably something sensitive on temperature..and it works fine untill getting to the critical value..This wil aply also to the power source ...If the fan is not working or it is dirty and do not do the job ...the power source can actually shut itself down as a protection when it gets to a certain temp.value..have a nice day ...and I hope this will help ..
