Question about Compaq Presario 700 470024-192 Notebook

1 Answer

Sluggish StartUp I woke my notebook up from Sleep Mode the other day to find a blue screen with the "We had to shut down to keep from losing any data" message. It told me to shut down then restart. Nothing was responding at all, so the only way I could get the thing to shut down was to kill the power. Since then when I turn it on, it sits there for a good 20 minutes, doing nothing with a black screen, then starts up like nothing was wrong. I have gone through the device manager, and searched for new drivers for everything I could think might need one. The only one I got was an updated touchpad mouse driver. Does anyone have a clue what's going on? Thanks, Matt

Acer iconia a500 tablet shuts itself off

This might sound a little stupid, but 1 is it plugged in when you put it sleep mode, and when u open the screen do you physically have to turn it back on. Sometimes when you put a computer in "sleep mode" and its not plugged in you lose power slowly

My son accidently shut his laptop down whilst installing microsoft office and now he has an error on startup: status: oxcoooooe9. I tried rebooting and starting in safe mode but it always goes back to...

Instead of re-installing the Operating System you can do an Operating System repair. Boot to the Windows Operating System installer disc,. If you have XP, boot to the XP installer disc then enter the setup program. There will be an option that says "Press R to Repair Computer". Press letter R then let the setup finish. For Vista/7, boot to the installed disc then select "Startup Repair" This will repair all corrupted Windows file and will keep your data intact,

Hope this help.

I have a Dell Optiplex 780 and when I am logged in and walk away for 15 or more minutes it will go to sleep, I will then come back wake it up, log in and the screen will go black and I cannot get in unless...

This problem is ongoing because you have it configured to sleep turn the sleep mode off. What it is doing is attempting to load drivers again and not saving to cache when in sleep mode you may have not enough storage allotted for the sleep mode to save information go and increase the storage memory to store the data so that when it sleeps it can store the data and wake up with your screen as it was when you left it.
Personally I do not use sleep mode never have, never will. It is nothing but a problem for me anyway. I always keep my machines running with the exception of a lap top. So my suggestion is turn sleep mode off. I also log out and then log back in same principal really. Or just close the machine totally power it down. Sleep mode was a wonderful concept along with shutting down hard discs etc. However you will often times be more into a hassle than just leaving it on or shutting it down. Less work for a computer is better just my humble opinion.
Last but not least, my last resort would be to re-install operating system again once I start getting to many things going wrong with my machines I do them over solving all sorts of problems that are behind the scenes that take hours sometimes to repair individually. This would be after you retrieve your lost files from the drive. John

In case it is in warranty, so not try to repair it as it may void the warranty. It is better to take it to a service center. Moreover in this case, it seems to be fault with the screen, so your data would be safe.

Computer sleep mode

Turn it off at night or if you leave it for an extended period. It still uses power even in sleep mode, plus the longer Windows runs, the more chance of corruption.

Computer won't boot Windows Vista. Screen goes black with cursor arrow.

In this case you have to do the PC restore . you can do that in dell machines by shutting down the machine and when it is coming back on just HOLD DOWN THE CTRL ket and the START HITTING f11 key in this case you will lose the data which you have the on the c drive but this issue will get resolved .

Else you can try to restart in the safe mode with networking and then go to the system restore and then select the bold dates in which you have idea you system was working fine . selct the date and then do the system restore . In this case you will not lose the data but you will lose the updates which you have done after that date .

in both the cases system will work .

Sleep Mode Lockup on Dell Inspirion 530 w/ Vista

Try hitting the "Windows" key on your keyboard to bring it out of sleep mode. The "Windows" key is generally found on the bottom row of the keyboard, near the Alt and Ctrl keys, and it has no letters on it, just the Windows logo. That key brings my Windows Vista machines out of sleep mode when other keys won't.

As for the power button, anytime you need to force a computer to turn off, you can press and hold the power button to do so. Usually, you need to hold the power button for 5-10 seconds and it will shut down. Use this option with caution, as it turns the computer off without running through the shutdown process and can cause you to lose data.

Hope this helps.

SONY VAIO notebook freezes on xp splash screen every 2-4 mos.

first, ensure your system restore is turned on and make a restore point right now!...assuming you have run a thorough disk check and de-frag. then, trust the system restore. I have used it with success 100% of the 20 or so times I have used it. Next, start using the "Hibernate" power down mode. I have found this to work wonders with third-party driver problems. It seems that once a good startup happens, then freeze it (and continue to get a good startup) with hibernate from then on. Last, check about every month for the quantity of restore points that have taken place automatically by Windows. Sometimes, depending on the size of the hard drive, too many points can begin to encroach on your free space that you want for virtual memory or data. So for example, I see 15 restore points in the last month, I will dlete them all by cancelling system restore. Then I use "clean disk" scandisk and defrag. Then I turn restore back on.
