my cheap WalMart Acer laptop freezes and beeps twice at random times. It does not beep twice as it boots, but rather after using it for a while. When I look at a cpu load graph the cpu is running at 90-100%.
I am having a major problem with my laptop (Dell inspiron 1520). The laptop starts up, whe the dell logo disappears I get some very quick beeps (there must be about 8 beeps in total). I then get a boot manager screen which shows windows 7 at the top, and windows memory diagnostic in the tools section at the bottom. When I press enter it goes to the password screen and then after entering the password it seems to boot up as normal. I can probably get 2 - 3 minutes use out of my laptop before everything freezes. From this point I cannot do anything and have to tur the computer off by the switch.This is all it does in a constant loop.I have tried everything I can think of but still the same issue.
A couple of weeks ago my daughter spilt a little water on the keyboard. I mopped it up but next time I booted it up again the beeping noises started on start up. I removed the memory stick from under the keybpard and noticed there was signs of water damage. I removed the memory stick and the beeps on start up continued every time I booted the laptop up. But everything worked. Last Friday I was browsing the internet and that is when everything frozeI have tried to restore to an earlier date but it won't let me complete the restore. I have run the various disk repairs that are offered when pressing F8 at the dell logo screen but to no avail (it doesn't seem to find any issues). I really just want to get my files/photos off and then try and reinstall windows but as explained my computer won't stay on long enough for me to be able to do anythingThe computer will stay on in safe mode, however, it will not load in safe mode with networking. Could it be something to do with wifi? Reason I say this is I have been reading various threads and this has been suggested as a possible issue for one person's similar problem.
I currently have a dell inspiron M5030 and I would like to do a couple of things to it to improve the appearance and better performance. So here we go.
1.) where can I go to upgrade the ram? I currently have three and would love to upgrade to the maximum of 6. What brands should I be looking for that may be better then the Dell versions.
2.) I would like to try and replace the stock keyboard for something that lights up the keys. But please do not refer me to a external light. If it is not possible then could you direct me somewhere that has keyboards that will fit that have different colors, Styles etc.
Windows 7 64 bit loaded on a clean formatted disc on Dell M5030. However no wifi drive or other drives are installed. Also, I cannot install any drivers I get a message need to know if you are running x84 or x64. Seems that the software isn't putting the entire programs up.
My laptop (Hp Pavilion dvx4 1 1/2 years old) suddenly won't load Windows 7. It turns on, fan and DVD drive run but the mute and Internet icons on the keyboard remain red and there are two flashing lights on the keyboard (one beside the caps lock key and the other is above the scroll key). That's all it does. No beeps, sounds or cursor. I had noticed a problem with my sound on a couple web sites prior to this but no error messages ever displayed indicating any problems. I bought this laptop at Best Buys and they installed a recovery disc but other then that I don't have the original Windows 7 disc in order to try to boot from CD-rom.
I have a Toshiba Laptop running on Windows 7. For the past week or so every time i turn on the laptop the entire computer seizes up and I can't do anything on it at all. At first it only did this after being on for an hour or two but since a windows automatic update it has become much worse and only lasts from 10 to 30 minutes. I have tried restoring to a previous date, CCleaner and Defraggler but as of yet it has not worked. The only time I get any use out of it is when it is on safe mode but it is not practical as I can't use many of the features I need to be able to do my work.
I have a Dell laptop Vostro 3350. It has been working fine for 2 yearsIn the middle of a windows update, the laptop was turned off.When started again, it had errors on update and stopped. Rebooted a few times but it always failed at the same point.Tried rebooting and using the system restore and repair options.It did get past the initial error point, but failed again further on.Now it doesn't boot at all, I get the error of needing to plug in a bootable device.
i recently got an update from microsoft on win 7, and immediately after it had finished updating i had no sound in any application (aim, skype, chrome, firefox, Internet, etc.). this has happened before, and i ran microsoft's sound problems wizard and it always said that an option had been clicked off and that it had restored it.this time when i ran the wizard it says it detects no problems. i am sure it is the software, as it happens a lot with ms updates. will downloadi can't go back to a previous configuration, i don't have one to go to
I've got a HP Pavilion g series laptop, which has recently, when being turned on, powering up as normal by turning the light of the power button on and lighting the screen, then quickly shutting these off again, and then continuing to turn on as normal.It hasnt been doing this for very long, I have no idea whether it is a serious problem or not as I don't know anything about computers. I must add that I don't use my laptop with the battery in; I use it with the battery out as I mostly use it plug into the mains.
How to turn your Windows 7 laptop into a wireless hotspot.I thought, "Hey, that's cool". So I did everything mentioed there to the letter. It worked, my laptop was able to create its own hotspot, which was well cool. I connected my tablet to the new wifi connection. It did work, but I had no internet connection.
My toshiba satellite l655 was being updated then turned off i turned it back on but the screen is just black i tried shining a light to see if i could see the picture but there was no picture then i tried to hook up the hdmi to a tv to see if i can try to use it on a tv to see the screen and nothing pops up.
My laptop is 1 year old and has worked great until a month ago. I was unable to connect to the internet and thru troubleshooting got a "missing network adapter". I have since upgraded the driver. I also purchased Registry cleaner program that supposedly found over 400 registry errors.I found by accident that I was able to connect normally if I turned the PC off by holding the power button. Then restarting, I got a message to start windows normally. When I did, and then it connected to the internet normally.Now, each night if I leave the power connected to the laptop and shut down windows from the Start command it works fine. I do not want to have to leave the power connected. Toshiba tech support is unable to help other that suggesting I return the PC to the "out of the box' status which is totally unacceptable to me.
I've set up my internet-connected laptop (Acer Aspire One with Windows 7 Starter) as wifi hotspot. The hotspot works to the extent that it lets another computer connect, but it does not provide (pass through) the internet access I have (via 3G USB modem). While searching the net for useful information I came across the recent thread No internet connection after I turned my laptop into wifi hotspot, Following up on the two tutorials mentioned in that thread, Windows 7 Tip of the Week: Use Wireless Hosted Networking to Share An Internet Connection Wirelessly | FAQ/Tip content from Paul Thurrott's SuperSite for Windows and Windows 7 Hotspot: Share Wifi With Your Laptop, I noticed that on my laptop the important Share tab is missing that can be seen in the first image in the first tutorial and also in the first image in the section "Changing Adapter Settings" in the secodn tutorial.
I am running Windows 7. Everything was running fantastic and life was free of tensions. But now my laptop has started behaving like a tortoise. Browsers get unresponsive, media players get unresponsive, CCleaner is so slow, that it took 2 hours to assess the files to clean. It makes weird noises inside as if it's making poop. But hell I don't know what it is. I turned it upside down and removed all the screws except one, so I don't if too much dust is making this happen. Whatever it might be[CODE]
I bought a Toshiba Satelite laptop last month and everything was working fine up until 2 or 3 days ago. Since then I have had a few BSOD messages, all when I've been doing different things (surfing the internet, playing Football Manager etc.)I was wondering if you'd be able to help me find a solution for this, whether that be take the laptop back or a fix you guys could help me with.
The laptop is Windows 7 Home Premium, x64, OEM. The laptop was bought at the begining of January and I have not altered the OS.The files I hope you will find the answer in are included
Sadly my Advent 9215 has a habit of shutting off sometimes and it is annoying.I am aware of my laptop being fairly warm but no where near too hot!Weirdly it refuses to turn on afterwards sometimes without the power lead plugged in. Weird or what... and it wasn't low on battery
I bought a Lenovo G555 laptop in new condition, and it can't be more than two years old. For quite some time, it's had several annoying problems. Most notably, it occasionally completely freezes; this can occur while using it, or when opening the lid after it has not been in use. The second issue is that the time it takes to boot up is no less than 20 to 30 minutes. This occurs whether the computer is restarted or booted up after being off.Here are the remedies I have already tried:
-Restoring to factory condition (several times)
-Daily antivirus scans (full scans once a week) with the most up to date virus definitions (I use avast! and nothing is detected)
-Full Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware scans with the most up to date definitions (no malware found)
I do not have an extreme amount of software installed, as I think I'm pretty careful about what I install on my PCs.On top of this, beginning today, Windows is now reporting there is a problem with the battery and it needs to be replaced, but the problems described above began long before this happened.
