Ok, so recently i experienced this typing problem where typing took up a bunch of CPU in the task manager and lagged out everything. When i would try to play a game for example; i would press and hold w to walk and my computer would freeze until i let go, stopping all the video and sound. So i went into the computer and took out the CMOS battery for a minute or two put it back in and restarted my computer. NO TYPING PROBLEMS! But then on my next boot up they come back again?
Hey guys i play games online that use alot of fast repeatly use of teh keyboard. When i start pressing keys really fast my hard drive beeps and the computer restarts, but before it restarts and closes teh game, a message comes up about sticky keys, but then it closes out really fast and i have no time to read it and then the computer restarts. I tried goign to my keyboard setup in control panel but i dont see nothing that can help this problem.

I also Scan his computer and found lots of virus's and removed them iam not sure if that has anything to do with it just saying everything so u guys get an idea whats going on so if anyone can help me how i can get this F10 working.
I went out of town for 2 weeks, came home and my pc is acting really strange. I've been getting tons of pop-ups, to the point my computer freezes and i must restart. Not only that but it randomly reboots itself even when not being used. Also, when i go to delete files now, the file does NOT go into the recycle bin. I looked at the settings and there is no check mark next to the "do not move files into recycle bin". My BF said he had been downloading things so I figured maybe its a virus or something. I ran Nortons... nothing. Ran AVG... nothing. A friend told me it sounded like spyware so he told me to run Adaware & Spybot. Did that, found a ton of stuff. But when i retarted the pc, it wanted to start in "safe mode". I noticed that most of these pop ups are (search miracle ??) Found info that its a trojan, but i dont know. . I dont know what to do, totally computer illiterate.
Well I have a bad problem every time i use one click it highlights EVERYTHING and if i press CTRL Microsoft Outlook comes up and any other key i press a new window comes up this is the first time i'm experiencing this Atm im running a virus scan
I have winxp sp3, legal version, automatic updates.From yesterday, whenever I press CTRL, my default browser launches.I had Chrome, I uninstalled it, but the story goes on with IE. If the browser is turned on, pressing ctrl opens blank page.
After pressing random buttons on the keyboard the image on the screen is now upside down and the mouse reacts as if it were upside down. It is connected to a touch screen that reacts as if the image on the screen was correct. When you reboot the start up screens are the correct way up but then it reverts back.
Well thats about the size of it really. I have windows xp home edition.There are now 79 updates available for my system but they just dont download when I press the button. I am not young and am a bit confused by all this computer stuff.
the screen on my laptop has become smaller due to some random button pressing because i was playing a game i might have triggered a shortcut of some sort can anyone help? when i load the game its resolution only takes up 1/4 of the screen than normal when it starts up also its smaller than usual
I cannot enter safe mode in Windows XP Home Edition by rebooting and pressing F8. The last thing I did to my computer was add a second hard drive, reboot, and, press F1. When I did that, I saw "entering setup". I looked around, didn't change anything and exited. I have re-installed WinXP and still can't enter safe mode.
On page 222 of my Windows XP book "Plain & Simple" it explains that, if, before Windows starts, you hold down Key F8 the Windows Advanced Options Menu will appear - only IT DOESN'T !! It used to, on my old computer, but now I have a new one, 250 GB 'split' into two drives of 125GB each, with Windows XP SP2 OEM Software.
I have started facing a strange problem recently. I re-installed windows 2000 and tried SP2 and ie6 updates but problem still persists.On pressing key "L" anywhere, it launches outlook express as a side-effect. This is true even when some other application is open and in focus. The opened window shows inbox folder in place of default home screen of outlook express. I have noticed that in folders pane in outlook express, pressing L selects Local Folder and pressing it again selects Inbox. However, in this case the window with inbox is opened out of nowhere. I tried by deleting files from profile that may cause this (Like shortcuts) and also checked with a new user but in vain. One thing I have observed is that when I use on-screen keyboard, L key is working fine. This makes me think that it is not a shortcut recognized by explorer. I checked keyboard with other operating system in my dual-boot configuration and it is working fine there.
Im extremely frustrated, computer keeps freezing not sure why. The freezing occurs randomly sometimes it occurs just after startup while other times i can play a game for a few hours before it freezes. Ive been in a repair shop a couple times and they havent solved the problem despite replacing the mother board and power supply. They also reformated the computer and still get the freezing problem. Also when it freezes i turn the power switch off on the back and then i get a noise from the speakers that sounds like someone tapping on a the desk. How can i discover the problem?
I have a 2004 Toshiba Satellite w/Celeron processor, M35X-S149, with Windows XP. A few days ago it started having this problem where the entire screen freezes up and I have to turn the computer off and restart. It freezes anywhere from 2 minutes to 4 hours into a session, but it freezes up every time. I don't know if this is related, but every time I restart, I get a message window from an application called Button Manager v1.83, that says: "No INITIO External Storage Device Found" and it has two buttons to click on, either : LED ON or LED OFF. I ran a virus scan, and an adaware scan, but it didn't help. My husband wants to throw out the computer and buy a new one, but there must be a way to fix this. Is it a virus
Every time I start to do something my computer freezes. I installed "dream day" and 20 min. into it my computer froze, but before I even did this when I'm am playing itunes, my system just reboots right in the middle.using xp
Don't know why. But it does it enough for me to want to go back to Win2000. This is the first time I have used XP Home and so far I am not too impressed. When my computer freezes up to the point I have to reset it to clear it. What can I do to diagnose this issue?
I got some time and checked the available disk space. Out of 33MB I had 10MB left. I cleaned some stuff up and compressed the disk. Things worked well all day yesterday and then today we got this again.
I haven't been able to get the computer to start up now. I turn it off, and it hangs/freezes while it's starting back up. I did get it to load in safe mode,
I have an E-Machines with 512mb of ram and run Windows XP Pro. My computer seems to freeze when left on for more than 5-6 hours. I tried speaking with E-machines about this, but they just wanted me to buy a $100 extended service warranty. I have been looking at the event viewer, but the errors that pop up don't seem to correlate.
My computer freezes at least twice a day. Sometimes when i leave it on for quite some time, it freezes. At other times it just freezes while i'm doing some work. Just now the computer restarted by itself when i was running some programs (matlab, excel, bitcomet, zone alarm). I have to restart my computer manually everytime. I'm using Windows XP SP2, Zone Alarm Pro, BitComet, Prevx, McAfee. I've already checked my power option (hibernation disabled, never turn off monitor or hard disks and never standby).
All of a sudden my computer came to a screaching halt. It says in windows task manager that my cpu usage is at 100%.The image name using all the time is "system" The user name is "system" The cpu is 99
when I try to boot up my computer it just stops at the Windows welcome screen where it says 'Windows is starting up...'. The problem is Windows doesn't start up. I've managed to log on however, by going into safe mode and changing the way I log on by switching to the more classic method, but this is not the real answer I want
I am having serious computer issues! My desktop has been freezing a lot as of late. As in mouse freezes screen freezes, no task manager, manual restart. Well just as I was about to back it all up tonight. I am using windows media player and firefox and all of the sudden the computer starts to restart itself. Once it reboots it goes to the vaio screen where it freezes. I am actually used to this because it happens whenever I try and restart with my external hd attached. so I hard restart again, disconnect the external, and then it passes the vaio screen goes to the pentuim 4 screen, goes to a black screen with a little cursor that skips down a few bars, i hear the drive whirr up when it should load up to the windows xp loading screen, but then it stops and the screen goes blank. If i try and go into safe mode by pressing f8, it says please select boot device and gives me a choice.

For some reason, my computer been freezing on me.I've been getting these errors in my event viewer:Event Type:Error Event Source:atapi Event Category:None Event ID:15 Date:12/6/2004 Time:10:30:33 PM User:N/A Computer:NE0 Description: The device, DeviceIdeIdePort1, is not ready for access yet.and: Event Type:Error Event Source:Cdrom Event Category:None Event ID:11 Date:12/6/2004 Time:10:30:33 PM User:N/A Computer:NE0 Description: The driver detected a controller error on DeviceCdRom0.Then my window screen locks up causing me to reboot. Im not sure what going on but it been going crazy today.
Windows XP media center edition, 1 gb of ram, SP3My computer started to slow down a lot and would shut down out of nowhere, eventually it didn't turn on at all. The problem was the psu. I replaced it but problems persist. Computer boots normally I can log in but when I try to use a program it usually freezes. Firefox will open and I can surf the net for about ten minutes then it slows down drastically until it freezes. I notice in task manager that PF usage climbs high as firefox slows down. IE works normally but if I open another program winamp for example it freezes completely and makes one continuous beep. Hard drive activity will go on for minutes while nothing is running.none of this happened before the first psu started to die I think it did some damage but I don't know what.
My computer becomes very slow and freezes a lot to the point I have to turn if off and then turn it back on.I did run spybot, ad aware, Advance Care, and virus program but I still have the same problem.
