Computer Charge Triple Normal Operations - Webroot Sweeper
My g/f's computer is running XP and recently its commitment charge is currently triple what you would think is normal (700mb instead of 200mb) from what i can ascertain there are no extra processes running and cpu operation is running around 50% +40% -10%. The odd thing is, the computer has 512mb of ram but even when its sitting on 700mb its slow but not standstill slow.I have rebooted into safe mode and attempted using zone alarm suite, and webroot spysweeper; but both came up with errors requiring restart.I used the trendmicro housecall online scan in normal operation which did not find anything.

Transfer Files From Old Laptop Into New Laptop
My laptop died and I removed the hard drive.I hooked the hard drive up to my new laptop via a SATA/IDE cable.I can see the old hard drive in the E drive and it appears that all the contents are there by the size of the hard drive (same as when I had it in the old laptop) but I can only see, actually view, a very small percentage of the drive. My goal: I want to transfer all old music, word documents and photos from old laptop into new laptop.

Got A Laptop With Nothing On It
I've been given a laptop (dell latitude l400) which has had the hard drive wiped clean. All i have is the floppy drive.When i run the XP boot disk, i get an error message of ' bootinfo.inf', whereas when i run a 98 boot disk it does at least get further but stops at the C: prompt but cannot get anything else to work.
I have run a Dir check and found that all the hard drive recognises is the command file. Also i have tried an external cd drive but cannot get the laptop to recognise it.

On Acer Laptop
Blue screen comes up after logging in with :
"Checking file system on C:
Type of file system is FAT 32
One of the disks needs to be checked for consistency
Windows is verifying files and folders

Checks until 100% completed then shows "Windows has made corrections to file system".

Then goes back to windows is starting up and then log in again. Cannot find a way to break this loop. Is this virus or Windows fixing itself. Problem started out of the blue, nothing like it before (over 18 months).
how can i get rid of it?

Cleaning Up The Laptop
A laptop that I have to turn in soon. I use this more or less as a personal laptop (I work from home). I want to clean this up (remove history, etc) before I send it back to the company. I am not really trying to hide anything, but more prefer to not let them into my personal life. Please do not start preaching about ethics, or that it is a company comuter, etc....

The computer is a Dell Latitude D610, with Win XP. I have done the basics, like the Browser history, but I am more concerned with anything that may be kept in the registry, etc.

Laptop Will Not Switch On
My laptop was in perfect working order last night but when I came to turn it on this morning it wouldn't. No screen, no sound. Tried again and got a high pitched continuos beep from it so turned it off/on again, nothing. Pressed F8 to try start it up in safe mode but it wont do that either. There is NO screen at all coming up. If i cant start it up in safe mode is it DEAD?

Laptop Very Slow
ever since I downloaded an episode of a TV show I missed last week (yes, bad idea..) my laptop has been acting up. It takes forever to open web pages if it will do so at all, and programs will give error messages and close. The messenger program will pop up showing others I am online although I have chosen all the options not to do that. I am sure it is a virus or some malware/spyware, but I run Norton (up to date) and Spyware Doctor (also up to date) and they can't find anything except a few adware cookies to delete. How do I find out what's causing this and get rid of it? It must have come in with the peer to peer program I would think?

Messed Up My Laptop
Well, I really did it this time... I decided to upgrade my laptop to XP... backed everything important, did the upgrade...everything seemed good. Worked. Then it notified me that the Norton was not working, & advised me to uninstall & reinstall... so I did... only thing is, I went ahead with the restart! I should of looked for junk/trace files, especially since it said it didn't completely remove it. So, when I restarted it, XP keeps coming to a screen that checkes the file system, fat ,32 scans & fixes files... dump files, etc. I can get to the IBM Bios setup, but I don't really know what to do from there.When I use a boot (maybe the one I'm using is no good) it says C: doesn't exist... I did try to start in safe mode, one of the times it appeared... but it didn't change the screen still did that fix-it thing.

Need To Format Laptop
My uncle was given an old Dell Latitude cpi laptop at work. Though, no discs or anything were included and the machine isn't formatted, it loads up to the password entry screen and I can't get passed this because they didn't include a password. Is there anyway to format without having a disk? There's no floppy drive, only a cd-rom.

Connect Laptop To Tv
Sorry if this has been asked before. I have an HP pavillion laptop with win XP. I have a movie i made with windows movie maker stored on the LTop. I also have it saved to a cd-r disc.What do i need to do so that I can play the movie (running it from the saved movie on the Ltop, or playing the CD in it on the Ltop) on a TV. I would think that all I need is some sort of cable;the ones that have red/white/yellow ends on them or something similiar.I want to show my family the mini tale i made on my 25" or 32" Sanyo tv, (and not my laptop)

Keep The Laptop In Its Case While Using It?
I use this laptop from my work truck and I keep it in a zippered laptop case for protection. My questions have to do with cooling it. Is it ok for me to keep the laptop in its case while I'm using it? My usage when turned on would be for 30 minutes to an hour and than would be turning it off for a little while and than back on again. The usage would be basically surfing the net only and not running high end programs or gaming. I was also wondering if it was possible to maybe put a cooling device if needed under the laptop in the case? I also realize a 7200 rpm hard drive would generate more heat.
