it should be noted that last night I was experiencing the same symptoms. Under orders of Dell customer support, I had to use the XP install disc to recover and fix some files. I'm not sure which files were corrupted, but the fix did work.View 10 Replies View Related
Just about anything that takes a little effort causes the fan to speed up and those popup windows warning me about it. In my Mandriva OS on a separate HD it can work hard and hardly a whimper from the processor. What's going on? I'm afraid I'll burn my processor up in XP Home.View 2 Replies View Related
In recent weeks the computer screen keeps freezing with the cursor being replaced by the hour glass symbol. This usually happens after several hours computer usage - but sometimes it occurs soon after the computer is turned on.When this happens, I am unable to log off; the computer on/off button does not work when the screen freezes and I have to turn the computer off at the mains.In order to be able to log back into my broadband internet connection I have to turn the computer and and off twice and then on again Sometimes when the computer screen image freezes a message box appears always saying "End programme" (i.e. "End programme - CiceroUIWndFrame" or "End programme - mixer").View 1 Replies View Related
i seem to be having a problem with my second computer. it keeps turning off and on. it beeps when ever it turns on.i have no idea what the problem is.i was trying to reformat the drive but it would not stay on long enough to read the cd.so i was thinking it might be the harddrive. so i put another harddrive in it that i know is working fine. it does stay on but i get first the safe mode screen. it does not matter what option i pick like start windows normally or start in safe mode after i hit enter i get a blue screen telling me windows has shut down to protect my system from a fatal error. it tells me to check my harddrive for viruses or errors. my problem is i don't know how to get past that blue screen to check my harddrive. i have to turn the computer off. it happens every time i turn it on.i would give you a log report but i can't make one.View 14 Replies View Related
I've been having really bad computer troubles recently and really need some help, cause I've wracked my brain trying to think of possible solutions here.To give a bit of background:The computer in question is an AMD Athlon 1800+ that I've had for about 3 years now. It's not the most stellar computer, but I mainly use it to surf the web and play some low-end games nothing spectacular.Recently however it had started to reboot constantly, and eventually just power off and never come back on. I figured it was the power supply, so I purchased a new 400W one, installed it and everything was working great.Fast-forward a couple weeks later, and I started to hear a really odd noise coming from the computer. It sounded almost as if sparks were flying around inside, but I removed the case and checked what the problem was, and it seemed the CPU cooling fan was having some troubles, and eventually stopped working. So just today I went out and bought a new CPU cooling fan, installed it, and again, everything was working fine.
However, just tonight, the computer began to reboot randomly again, and now it is at the point where it will not turn on, and when I do power it on, it just idles and beeps constantly. They are fairly short beeps, but they continue on and on indefinitely. I read up on the beep codes and how they coordinate with the BIOS setting, but problem is I have no idea which BIOS setting I have, so I am not sure what could be the problem. To be safe, I began to unplug the cards one by one, seeing if any of them stopped the beeping, but to no avail.So I am at a total loss here Having just bought those two things recently and STILL having the computer act like a pile of garbage is disheartening to say the least, and I just hope someone may have an idea on what or how I could fix this.
My PC is around 6 years old, maybe older, and for the last couple of months, mostly during the night (which to be honest scares the hell out of me), it will turn on randomly. Sometimes it's when I move the mouse, which I know had something to do with a setting in the BIOS, but sometimes it's for no reason at all. It just...boots. Sometimes straight after I turn it back off. I've had to unplug it at night.I always shut it down properly - no standby or hibernation.View 3 Replies View Related
here's the deal my vista kept getting blue screens so I reinstalled it. I was unhappy with it and tried to install XP. The computer keeps turning off on install while its loading files. I've formatted several times to try and get this working so now I don't even have an os to get on the computer with. I'm running an acer aspire 5100. I tried to get back on by installing vista again but the expanding files part of the install stops at 90% and I get an error. Repairs from both xp and vista install discs don't do anything.View 9 Replies View Related

I don't understand why, but my computer is turning itself on! Just now - 6:08 PM, PST it turned itself on. Could it be someone controlling the computer remotely? Could it have to do with "Hibernate?" Usually I use "Hibernate" to turn off the computer.View 6 Replies View Related
I turn on the computer and it starts to load.I see the Windows screen then the computer just shuts down and restarts again.It has done this around 40 times now in 4 days and just wont turn on.Is this some kind of short somewhere in the computer.I also disconnected it from the power source and tried a new one and still the same thing.
When i log in everything loads like its going to work but then after the last thing loads it goes to a black screen and you can't do nothing, but you can sign in on safe mode, have any idea of what to do in safe mode to fix it???View 1 Replies View Related
I'm not sure whether this is a hardware or software problemBasically at random times my computer just seems to lose power and shuts itself off. Ive have taken it too computer shops and had it looked at, they have done various things like change motherboard etc and none of that has helped. The last piece of advice I had was that it was probably software related and the best way to fix it would be to simply wipe the system and start from scratch but if possible id like to avoid that.Sometimes the PC will stay on for 4/5/6hours at a time and run fine, other times after just 5 minutes it will shut itself off. Then when I try to turn it back on it won't switch on unless it is left for a while.View 12 Replies View Related

Windows XP SP2 seems to be working normally, when I click Shut Down the computer proceeds to turn off. Afterwards the harddrive powers-down, the fans stop running, etc. Then for no reason, the computer turns back on after a brief period of time off (varied: 1hr, 15min, 8 sec) as if someone pushed the power button.I did not install any new software, or update/added on new hardware when this problem started to happen. Im unable to trace the source of this errorView 3 Replies View Related

I have done a reformat w/ xp and added sp2. I tried turning off popups while in this process of installing etc. and adding tsg for allowances. I use Mozilla Firefox .... and when I had installed the Java, I would come to TSG and check it out on Chat. 99.9 % of the time - all worked great with no problems. I don't know why now? I tried the java on a test page/ which said it was working, yet I can not access chat and I get timed out trying? I will add 2 pictures as reference. as I am getting dizzy going around in circles.View 4 Replies View Related

Having a little problem here. I have a 7 year old Compaq Presario Desktop. 3 times now (Thurs night, Fri night, Sat morning) while it's being used the screen goes black, and the fans shut off inside the tower. But the green power light stays on. I turned off the PC last night to let it cool down but this AM the same thing happened again.Is this problem due to the computer over heating? I just cleaned the whole thing up 2 months ago for the first time in a long time, but maybe something got in there causing the fan not to spin correctly.View 14 Replies View Related
I have 2 Acer monitors hooked up to my X800 and sometimes after turning themselves off while I was afk only one will come back on when I return to the PC. Turning the monitor on/off doesn't help, nor does opening a window that I know is open on the monitor that is off. Any ideas? The screens do work correctly after reboot.View 1 Replies View Related
I have recently installed anti-virus on my other computer. I turned it off last night and this morning I turned it on to find the mouse and KB don't work. I noticed the optical light is on until the windows loading screen shows up and then it immediately shuts off. I have looked in the bios everything is enabled, I tried to boot into safe mode and that doesn't work either, as soon as windows starts loading the mouse shuts off. I tried repairing windows and when it reboots to re-install, the mouse light goes off again. Later, an error pops up looking for a file iaStor.sys, which i cannot locate because my mouse does not work.
It comes up in the middle of turning on with a message "Enter CURRENT Password". I tried taking it off in the setup boot menu, but think, by selecting "Clear startup password," I reset it to some default password, which I dont know. Now i cant get my computer to turn on, cause dont know the turning on passwordView 3 Replies View Related

When i press the on/off button on my CPU, my computer shuts down as if i had shut down my computer properly. It saves my settings and everything instead of just turning off. I got an error message a couple of times and everything kinda locked up, though i could still move the little arrow icon around.Because of this, i was forced to press the off button and it has seemed to shut down every single time i've did it.I was wondering if this is considered a proper shut down. Does doing this in anyway effect my computer?View 6 Replies View Related
Win XP Pro I've just reinstalled my system and several programs. I've also begun "customizing" windows such as getting rid of messenger, turning off automatic update etc. At the end of bootup, I get a small box in the middle of the screen with nothing on the top section to indicate what program it is coming from or responding to. It says: "cocreateinstance error". There is a little "ok" and when I left click, the box goes away and all seems to go very smoothely. But something is wrong - any ideas of where I might start to look since there's no error code and no reference to a particular program?View 7 Replies View Related

My son Lloyd has a Toshiba Laptop which is just over a year old - typical eh as we can now no longer take it back on guarantee. It keeps turning itself off completely - I assume because of overheating???. This has started to happen quite frequently now, five times yesterday evening and also a few times this morning. He is getting quite frustrated at this and I have no idea what we can do to investigate it. Can anyone here offer advice as to what I could do to determine what the issue is and what may be causing it. Lloyd is registering on TSG right now as I type this note as 'burnsy' so he can monitor and reply within this thread.View 7 Replies View Related
