Preferred Solution: [Help] Windows XP wont work right on my laptop

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Instead of using the recovery cd, try to get a window xp cd from someone and do the clean installation again.

Hi!
I have all my class assignments on a CD. Up until today, I have been able to open the CD on my laptop and access my files. Today, when I popped the CD in, there was nothing on it. I put the CD in my other computer, and it reads the CD fine. The only trouble is that computer does not have MS Office on it so opening the files on that computer is just as useless.
Should I restart my computer? (I don't remember seing any notifications that I got new updates)
Is my drive dirty? (if so, what is the best way to clean it?)
Thanks for any advice!

A:system repair wont work windows wont load

Might be a failing Hard drive. Get to your bios and see if there is any diagnostics there to do a hard drive test. On some motherboards its delete on others its F2. If there is no diagnostics on the bios i would make a USB bootable diagnostics and do that.
I just had the same problems and found out the hard way that it was a hard drive.

A:windows 8 wont boot and system restore wont work

You need to be much more specific about what your problem is. I can't tell at all from your post what's really happening, and neither will anybody else. What exactly happens? What exact messages do you get? What "advanced options" are you talking about? Also, it appears this site's profanity filter has blocked something in your post. Using such language is not helpful.

A:hp laptop d/ backup wont work

Hi patrick477,Welcome to the BC forums.Your d/ drive is probably set up for use as a recovery drive, as opposed to a place for backups.Look at START -> COMPUTER and a screen showing your various drives should pop up. Does it show Recover (D:)?Take a look at the HP Customer Care site here and see if it addresses your problem.

Hey everyone,
So today my friend dropped his laptop and said that the computer wont work. So I took it in my hands. The laptop is a Acer 5532-5194. The problem is that when ever i boot the laptop, all the leds turn on ( the power led, the optical drive led) and even the optical drive can eject, but no display! Its just a black screen and nothing appears. I tried to boot it without the battery and just AC adaptor but that didn't make a difference. I swapped hard drives with my own laptop, that didn't work. Not sure what else to try and what the heck the problem is. I even plugged it into a external monitor seeing if that would do any good...NOPE, I was wrong. So could someone else tell me what I could do to fix it and what the problem may be?
Thanks

My friend has a laptop at home, he has Dial up connection, it works on the home PC but not his laptop. It was working but just stopped,

I took the Laptop into work and hooked it up to the wireless connection and the same thing happens. (No connection)

I think there might be a virus on this system stopping it from working.

Does anyone have any tips for stuff to check, Or any programs i can download, Burn to CD and run on his PC.

I was thinking Spybot Serach and destory and maybe Hi-jack this.

If anyone has any pointers please let me know

PS this laptop is running very slow..

My internet wont work, ive tried using both crome and IE but both browsers say that I am not connected to the internet despite the fact my computer says that I am connected to the internet. I know its not a network problem because my other devices are connecting fine. Also I tried connecting to the wifi at home and at school and it still does not work. My laptop is a HP ProBook 6390b and I am using windows 7. This problem started occurring after about 4 months disuse of my laptop which I think might be a factor as to why its not working. I have run windows updater and run a scan with my antivirus but still nothing helps. Thank you for any assistance in advance.

I recently installed vista home premium x86 on it, but after all drivers are installed. The only thing failing to start is my Intel 3945abg wireless network card.
I've checked the Unit list, petty I do not recall what it was called, anyway, it wont work. When I run diagnostics, all it says is, use the pre-made button to turn on your wireless network card. Guess what, I tried all the buttons for the wireless, but no. Won't work.

Hi everyone,

I recently bought a new Dell laptop Inspiron 1545 with Windows 7 64-bit, Pentium(R) Dual core CPU T4200 @ 2.0GHz (2CPU's), 4096MB RAM. The graphics card is an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4330

The main problem is that the Sims 3 game wont load on it. I put it in and I can hear it whizzing round however nothing happens and it doesnt recognise it. There are no error messages or anything.

I have used the game on a previous Dell laptop and it worked fine so the game is alright, also, I have played other games on my new laptop and its fine. On the other hand it doesnt recognise certain DVD's either. I thought the spec of my laptop was adequate for the Sims 3 but I could be wrong. Any help would be much appreciated!

Thanks

I used to have a laptop connected with wireless (netgear WG511) through a router (D-link) to my main computer with the internet.

Yesterday I got a new laptop, upgrading from an IBM r40 to an r52, and was wondering how to get the wireless network working again. The r52 appears to have a wireless card built in, and can find networks, as it can find my neighbours one (but cant connect)

I tried installing the Netgear external wireless card, but that didnt do anything except make a new network connection, which also didnt work.

If there is any other information thats needed, please let me know cos I really dont have much idea at all...

Both computers run Windows XP

Do you want to have the symbol appear (The ASCII Copyright symbol)?

Try enabling the Numlock and using the embedded alternate number keys in the main keyboard?

This is a tough one due to your laptop screen not working and most integrated laptop graphics cards wont be able to push signal to a secondary screen when in safe mode.

your trying to install the x64 version right? the 32 bit version doesnt do this, and there is a fix for the x64 version that requires you to edit a bunch of files. Sorry I don't have the info but its do-able but I just went 32 bit since the iMac can only use 4 gigs RAM anyway.

I am running a HP L2000 special edition windows XP. My touch pad works fine; I think it is sp/2. My optical mouse from Targus is old and was working until today. I am searching for a driver update but so far nothing seems to be working. Optic is fine. Love the mouse. It has a scroll wheel on top with rt and lft buttons; s/n B0508039183. I do not know if you call that a wheel ( I thought wheel was on bottom). there is nothing but light coming out of the bottom. anyway, I know it is an HID device that may not need a driver per se; but the microsoft windows HID upgrade is not working.

I've had an external monitor hooked up to my laptop for ages, showing duplicate screen

How do I get it to show the laptop screen again. I went to control pannel and display and properties and it seems to be monitor 2. If I click the extend desktop box, I get my screensaver on the external but nothing else-- it doesn't change when my laptop display does.

I could really use the monitor back. Any help would be welcome.

A:Adobe flash player wont work on my new dell xps 15 laptop

Hi Rambo,

Did you ever find the Flash Player in the Add/Remove programs view?
Please uninstall the Flash player, reboot the machine, then download and reinstall it again.

Is it steam that isn't recognizing the Flash Plugin? Because the Flash plugin is only really used in the Browser-view of steam and shouldn't affect it's functionality in any other way.

If both are installed and problem persists after reboot, also Repair steam from Add/Remove programs after Flash has been installed, to make sure that Steam knows it's installed from the start.

Otherwise get back to us with more information, what error codes you get, where it won't load etc etc.

Any input on what might be causing these problems will be greatly appreciated.

Each website directed me toward Advanced Boot Options, okay fine... only problem is that when I press F8 for advanced boot options, my laptop just goes back on it's infinite reboot track.

So far I've tried reseting the CMOS... which is the only thing I can do, courtesy of Acer and their ****** computers. Please help :(.

You might have to remove the hard drive from this computer and install it in another computer as a slave drive and after it is able to be accessed by Windows on that computer you will have to manually backup all of your important data that you have to another media like CD-R's, DVD or Thumb drive. Then when this is done return it to the original computer as a master drive on the primary IDE cable and do the following:

You are connecting via VGA? If your connectors permit, connect via DVI. My monitor also has HDMI. but won't work via a DVI-HDMI cable. I guess that is only for a video card that has an HDMI output. Another possibility is S-Video, if both the video card and HDTV are equipped with it.

Hi lilnana and welcome to TSF.

It could well be a corrupt user profile, but before we have to go through creating a new one and copying over the programs as well, lets try a few things.

1] Have you tried re-booting after you installed the extra gadgets?
2] What anti-virus do you have running? Have you tried disabling it?
3] The gadgets that you downloaded from the MS site, were they made for Vista or Windows 7?
4] Were the gadget you installed made for a 32bit OS or a 64bit OS? (What are you running?
5] Have you tried removing one-by-one the newest gadgets to see which one is causing an issue?

Can you give us a direct link to the gadget (a link for each one) that you downloaded.

I have a windows 8 computer and I have been having problems connecting to the internet. I have been searching for ways to fix the problem but I have not been able to find any solution. Basicly what is happening is I connect to the wifi and it says I am connected, after that I try to open google but it does not work it says that I am not connected to the internet. Also something weird is I can connect to skype fine, I can log in and talk to my friends and so on.
(I have tried doing ipconfig /release and stuff like that)
Please help me fix this problem
Thanks.

Yes, Zone alarm is a better firewall, it stops traffic both ways while XP firewall only stops incoming traffic.

Hi
I get this message when attempting to update windows
Windows update cannot currently check for updates, because the service is not running. You may need to restart your computer.
I have done multiple malware scans(spybot, malwarebytes etc) with nothing found, BITS is not listed in processes and anything remotely associated with update i have running i think.I tried to uninstall SP2 and was going to resinstall but it failed.
The other odd thing is at the bottom of the update screen it now says find out about free software from (null). Ive googled this online and so far havent found any help.
Thanks in advance for any help!!

Help please, I've been having some issues with my computer and its driving me nuts. It all started when I got a virus/malware. It was a antivirus scam called "Security Essentials 2010". I removed it with the help of this website "myantispyware". After the removal, I had some problems with my computer.

When I tried to hibernate my computer, nothing happens. A screen shows up saying "preparing to hibernate" and then after a few seconds, it returns back to my window and does not hibrnate. Is this a virus?

Please help me. Any help would be very much appreciated. Thank you very much!

A:Windows wont work after using windows 7 home phone activation

What makes you think it is the activation? Did you go click on "Start Button", right click on "Computer" and left click on "Properties"? When the screen comes up scroll down to the right bottom of the screen and you should see a "Genuine Windows Logo". If it says something different then there is an activation problem.

A:HD Realtek mic-in (external mic) wont work. Windows 8

Do you have the "Stereo Mix" set as the default Recording Device? If some other device, such as an internal mic is set as default no other device can be used in most systems. Setting the Default Recording Device as Stereo Mix then any recording device will be heard.
