Preferred Solution: crash and hard reset for no aparant reason

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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Next time it occurs click ctrl/alt/del and bring up task manager. Then under processes see what the main cpu eaters are and report that back here.

My xp sp desktop system is old but its psu and seperate gfx and audio cards are slightly newer or later The system has been kept in good condition frequently cleaned etc A few days ago the system switched off for no reason at all acting as if someone has had pressed that shutdown button or forced a switch off It hasnt happened since then and the system is clean from viruses currently using avira with frequent adaware spywareblaster day in one times reason?! no for sp3 3 system desktop xp reset updates and comodo firewall I have tried googling this problem up and some sites state that a system switching off randomly if it is clean from viruses is most likely to be related to a dying motherboard as opposed to a power supply starting to give up but what do you think I suppose an electrician would be the best bet for truly giving the psu a test instead of any installable applications for the psu but what do you believe is likely to be the problem are there any good apps for both the psu and motherboard that may be able to tell of any issues relating to ageing failing components etc I dont want to keep on using the desktop only to find out that after yet another switch off the psu has damaged the hd and anything else connected at the time ive heard a psu on its last legs can do some real damage thanks for xp sp3 desktop system reset 3 times in one day for no reason?! any info

A:xp sp3 desktop system reset 3 times in one day for no reason?!

Hi Darkness,

I don't think that there are App's out there that can diagnose this for you; As I also don't believe that an electrician would spot a fault if it's now functioning normally.

My PSU died a while back as I was in the middle of a good hand of Texas HoldEm'.. Not cool! But the give away that the PSU was on the way was the rich smell of solder a few moments before.. Nothing was damaged and nothing failed after I replaced the unit.

You can only soldier-on and wait for the fateful day!

use .tss on the part before the colon, then kv.
Else if kv shows a trapframe
use .trap on that value
.trap on the appropriate frame will show where the trap was taken

Yesterday, my computer started to act unresponsively, than the windows explorer stopped and restarted; while I was shutting down, the computer crashed.
I didn't make any hardware or software change in the last days.
The system files are attached to the post. If someone could tell me what's going on, I'd appreciate it.

A:Crash Without Obvious Reason

Your BIOS dates from 2011. Please check at the manufacturer's website to see if there are any BIOS updates available for your system. Also check the readme file to see if they apply to the problems that you are having. Please be advised that flashing the BIOS is a very unforgiving process - and one mistake can physically damage your motherboard.

I've seen a couple of problems recently with Avast. If you'd like, remove it and replace it with another free anti-virus to see if that helps.

If this is an upgrade installation, it may be quicker to wipe and reinstall windows. If you're interested in that, please post back for instructions.

Please update these older drivers. Links are included to assist in looking up the source of the drivers. If unable to find an update, please remove (un-install) the program responsible for that driver. DO NOT manually delete/rename the driver as it may make the system unbootable! :

Here is the problem i am trying to get into the BIOS which is the 1 step on the Acer website but for some bizarre reason when it is completely off i press the Windows button and the power button to get in to the BIOS as it says on the Acer Website but it keeps going to the start menu/desktop now instead of going to the BIOS. :/

Hi there So about a few months ago my IE started crashing so I switched to reason McAfee work IE for no won't crash Mozilla which of course works like a charm However IE will randomly pop up white screen with a box saying that IE has stopped working close program I always click it and the box might disappear but new ones will show IE crash for no reason McAfee won't work up It's getting incredibly annoying and I thought that possibly updating the IE would help it so I got the Beta version but now it's disabled my McAfee which isn't protecting my computer any longer and I can't fix it because a white box appears instead of the Security Center I went looking for the IE Beta to uninstall but I can't find it anywhere I tried the Run uninstall and to look by updates in the Add Remove programs I'm wondering if I accidentally deleted it but I don't know how I could have done that Please help I have a Dell Inspiron

A:IE crash for no reason McAfee won't work

Hi -

Are you speaking of IE8 beta? There is no IE7 beta - IE7 comes w/Vista and is a production version.

What you want to do is to un-install IE8 - then re-boot. IE7 should re-install upon re-boot.

Look in Program Un-installs for IE8. If not there, use the Windows Installer Cleanup utility -

Un-install McAfee via the Mcafee removal tool. It is not compatible with IE8 and causes major headaches in Vista in general.

McAfee Removal Tool -

Finally, reset the Windows Firewall to its default settings -
START | type FirewallSettings.exe into the start search box | click on FirewallSettings.exe above | select the Advanced Tab | click on "Restore Defaults" | Click Apply (if hi-lighted) | Click OK

Happy New Year!

Regards. . .

The drivers mentioned above in BLUE could not be identified by me and nor a google search returned a proper result. See if you can find these driver files in your system in some path. Report back the path of these drivers please

Below are the links where you could update the drivers given above :-

Also, many of the drivers which could not be identified were revealed by a google search that they are related to Display Drivers. So I would suggest that update those as well. Also, one peculiar thing I noticed is that these above Blue drivers maybe belong to the F3307 Mobile Broadband i.e. the Ericsson Mobile Broadband Devices. Please update those as well.

I have found next to no useful information in regards to my situation. This started a couple of days ago. My computer has started to randomly reboot itself after a min of an hour. What I have noticed in the event viewer under application is that there is always an error listed with source being Apache service, which is then followed with a system error, a quick blue screen and a reboot of the system back to desk top. The error reads apache.exe: could not open document config file E:/ProgramFiles/NVIDIA Corporation/NetworkAccessManger/ApacheGroup/Apache2/conf/httpd.conf. With an event ID: 3299

I have ran AVG 8.0 sbybot search and destroy, Antivir pe classic, windows defender, and Ad-Aware, with no signs of unwanted code, so not sure what to do now and useful help would be greatly welcomed. Thank you in advance for your help.

- System is a OEM Version
- System was redone from the ground up for fresh install for a school setting.

A:Random crash/BSOD 4/5 times a day, no obvious reason why

All of the dumps are blaming your nvidia graphics drivers

Probably caused by : nvlddmkm.sys ( nvlddmkm+19e4d4 )
Driver Reference Table - nvlddmkm.sys

I would suggest unistalling the current driver then reinstalling the latest one from nvidia's site.

A:Windows Server 2008 R2 STD BSOD crash reason


The SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION bug check has a value of 0x0000003B. This indicates that an exception happened while executing a routine that transitions from non-privileged code to privileged code.

It appears to be a problem with TP.Shell.XAF.W but I'm not familiar enough with what it is to be certain.

Hi Support Team,I was trying to factory reset my hard disc to re-install fresh copy of OS. I have back up discs and I had accidentally deleted recovery partition on my hard disc.So I'm trying to install from recovery disc, during the installation I was asked to insert disc#3. It was failing at this step and my laptop was hanging up. I had to shut down my laptop and re-iterate the same process but no luck still failing at disc#3. I had done this for three times. Now my laptop is with no OS and no way to troubleshoot it.Now I had to install the OS which is not genuine which I dont like.I think my recovery discs are totally crashed.Please help me how I can restore my genuine recovery files? Is there any way to get back my genuine OS.Please let me know if you need any additional details from me!!

So two days ago there was a thunderstorm. SO my brother shut it down. Today I turned and signed onto my computer. And it went all crazy. Everything was liked ransacked. It said that my personal settings dissappeared and starting to make a new one.So when I went to "My Computer" and looked at "Documents and Settings" and figured out something new. The Original Folder I used was not being used. A new folder called "temp" is now being used.Heres a picture to help you understand.I want to know how to change it back to my Original Folder instead of the temp.I think it just switched but I don't know how it did.

Hello every one I've been having a long term problem that has basically plagued my computer since I've built it Yet the issue manifests itself in different ways through out the years The issue is At certain seemingly random points my computer screen freezes with no BSOD Computer is still running with Firefox freezing Random, Life. Hard in Second hard and reset required. fans going No error message Sound stops Mouse is not responsive on screen Nothing works Screen is frozen on the last picture A holding down of the power button for a hard reset is the only way to recover Through out the years since I've changed graphics cards and RAM chips in order to try and solve this Random, hard freezing in Firefox and Second Life. Hard reset required. problem I've found that the RAM had no effect on the issue but the graphics cards perhaps did Back in I had constant random freezing at random intervals during the days of the week whilst basically doing any thing An SLI set up of two Geforce s I finally discarded one of the graphics cards to only run one and that seemingly fixed most random freezing issues for some time Though it did happen on some rare occasion that I could not explain How ever In I upgraded my graphics card to a GeForce GTX OC and found that issues immediately arose again I could not activity render videos in Adobe Premiere Elements whilst working on the video editing software with out a hard freeze Basically unable to render videos in real-time whilst working on them any more More issues started occurring later with this same card When watching Youtube videos in Firefox browser Occasionally with increasing frequency watching videos in the browser were causing this problem Then I discovered the option to disable 'hardware acceleration' and the problem hasn't arisen in the browser since Come Using a program known as 'Second Life' that does tend to use a lot of resources When computer resources were being strained too hard this problem did return on a rare occasion when I was running dual clients of this program In this same program known as 'Second Life' had gone through some updates and now for some reason the freezing issue has reared its ugly head in a big way Some times I can't be on this program for even an hour and the hard freeze occurs To fix this issue from that point I've tried updating to the latest graphics drivers No success I've even upgraded my graphics card to a GeForce GTX Ti and again updated to the latest graphics drivers The issue still persists and renders use of them program unusable I am able to play games such as Guild Wars Grand Theft Auto Trove etc with out issue how ever I do not know what is causing the issue in order to know what I need to fix My current setup is ------------------ System Information ------------------ Time of this report Operating System Windows Professional -bit Build Service Pack win sp gdr - Language English Regional Setting English System Manufacturer Gigabyte Technology Co Ltd System Model X A-UD BIOS Award Modular BIOS v PG Processor Intel R Core TM i CPU GHz CPUs GHz Memory MB RAM Available OS Memory MB RAM Page File MB used MB available Windows Dir C Windows DirectX Version DirectX DX Setup Parameters Not found User DPI Setting Using System DPI System DPI Setting DPI percent DWM DPI Scaling Disabled DxDiag Version bit Unicode ------------ DxDiag Notes ------------ Display Tab No problems found Sound Tab No problems found Sound Tab No problems found Sound Tab No problems found Input Tab No problems found -------------------- DirectX Debug Levels -------------------- Direct D retail DirectDraw retail DirectInput retail DirectMusic retail DirectPlay retail DirectSound retail DirectShow retail --------------- Display Devices --------------- Card name NVIDIA GeForce GTX Ti Manufacturer NVIDIA Chip type GeForce GTX Ti DAC type Integrated RAMDAC Device Key Enum PCI VEN DE amp DEV C amp SUBSYS amp REV A Display Memory MB Dedicated Memory MB Shared Memory MB Current Mode x bit H...

recently got an AMD Athlon 3000+ 64 with 1G RAM and an ATI 9800 Pro running Windows XP with Service Pack II. every MMOG (massively multiplayer online game) I try to play crashes within a few minutes of booting the software up. It usually goes to a blank blue screen and the the computer resets.

while waiting for my new LCD in the mail, i've got an ancient monitor hooked up to hold me over. It's a small CRT (maybe 15") and it's in less-than-perfect condition... could this be the cause?

Hi. So I just started my computer up this morning and noticed that I couldn't open file explorer at all. I click the button on my taskbar, but when the window pops up, it's blank and then it crashes. My whole screen turns the color of my tile screen (Orange) and then it takes me back to my desktop. I've tried opening file explorer other ways, but nothing works. I created a .dmp file using process explorer, but I need help reading and understanding it. I uploaded it to my SkyDrive. Here is the link: I just put it in the minidumps folder. It's called explorer.dmp

I would greatly appreciate it if any of you guys could help me. This is a big problem.


A:File explorer crash and reset

explorer.dmp contains references to windows file errors (no 3rd party files mentioned).
We'll need this stuff (even though you're not mentioning BSOD's): Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions

While waiting, try:
1) DISM - Fixing Component Store Corruption in Windows 8
2) then try SFC.EXE /SCANNOW from an elevated (Run as administrator) Command Prompt
3) then try this free tool: ShellExView - Shell Extension Manager For Windows Use it to disable all 3rd party (non-Microsoft) shell extensions. Then reboot and see if that fixes things.

So through a series of mistakes a brutally bleeped all the files and programs on my computer. I tried to personally do a factory reset but its not built into my model and i needed a 30 dollar disk. I asked my friend who works on hospital computers if he could do it for me, when he did he upgraded me to windows 7 ultimate. Along with that in the computer page of my file explorer it still said all that file space was still being used even though the files were all gone(until i used CCleaner that is). but for some reason games i could run before that wipe just fine, lag out and even crash. I cleaned my fan, used Driver Booster, and verified the cache for the steam games and nothing has helped.

My computer runs Vista and has a 50G hard drive and 50G partitioned drive. The hard drive is filled to within 1.5 G. I don't run programs regularly except Word and iTunes; I have a few others installed but nothing big. I run Trend Micro scans regularly. I've moved my photos to the partitioned drive because I ran out of space for them on the regular HD. This problem happened a year ago and I reloaded the system with equivocal results, but I had enough space to function. Over the last week my remaining 4Gs is starting to be eaten up again. ??? I'm a techno-idiot with this stuff. Help? Thank you.

I recently factory restored my computer yesterday.

Now today the whole hard drive is full for no reason. Nothing was downloaded on the computer since then.

I did a virus scan and found nothing.

What is going on and how do I fix it?

A:Hard drive full for no reason

What is the size of your Hard drive?

Go to you're C:\ drive. See if windows.old or folder exsists?
If so delete that and it will free up ALOT of space on you're hard drive.

Also click start and type in search> manage
Then click on Computer Management at the top.
You should see Storage in the center pane, double click on it.
Then Double click on Disk Management.
This will enable you to see the state of your drives.

Please post a snapshot of the resulting info.

It seems something is unstable on your system. Are you running one or two modules of RAM? If you're using two try just using a single stick at a time and see if there are any further issues. You could also try running memtest86+ to ensure that your RAM is OK.

So I deleted all of my documents, videos, photos, and non-essential programs, in hopes of clearing up my memory, but I STILL have 8 GB free of 72 GB. I occasionally run Malware Bytes, but once I deleted all of the malware, etc, the memory is still full. Now when I run the program, nothing comes up, which is good, but I can't figure out what is making my hard drive so full.

I ran CCleaner, and it deleted around 1.2 GB, but nothing changed at all. I have Windows 7 Home Premium, if that helps.

Thank you!

TreeSize Free - Verzeichnisgren und Speicherfresser schnell erfassen

Download and run Tree Size Free from the above link. It will tell you what files and folders are taking up space.

What do you know about the size of your page file (virtual memory)?

Do you use "hibernation"?

Here's 2 pix of what Tree Size will show you. One shows the results by percent. The other shows the results by gigabytes. You can poke the plus signs on the far left next to each line to show all the subfolders.

I have Vista Home Premium running on a Toshiba laptop, I decided to wipe the free space using Heidi Eraser, Before the wipe I had approx 80 GB of free space. I set the eraser to do three passes but when it was approx 80% done I got a pop up saying I only had 50MB of hard drive space left ? I stopped the eraser and rebooted but I still had only 50 MB left, I attempted a system restore but it failed, so I rebooted and now I see I have 5 GB of free space out of a total of 147 GB. I ran hijackthis but found nothing, I ran malwarebytes and it found nothing, can anyone tell me where my free space went.

A:Hard Drive full for no reason

A good way of understanding where all the space has gone on the drive is by using a free product called TreeSize Free

I've been running windows ultimate since the retail version came out and I've almost never had a freeze or specific crash that I can remember About a week ago I had a random total windows freeze while I to RaidPort1 Causing Reset Crash/Freeze?(Esata?) was in gmail and I had to a a hard reboot Then tonight I Reset to RaidPort1 Causing Crash/Freeze?(Esata?) was playing a avi video file just dvd resolution not even HD Reset to RaidPort1 Causing Crash/Freeze?(Esata?) on my LCDTV that I have connected via HDMI to my PC like I Reset to RaidPort1 Causing Crash/Freeze?(Esata?) have been for like months and my PC randomly rebooted after it was playing for minutes And then about every minutes after that initial crash the movie would freeze with the sound looping About of the times of this happening I could unmaximize the video and close it and reopen it no problem after like seconds of it being frozen but the other times the PC seemed to totally freeze up and needed to be rebooted After all this happened I checked the windows system logs and I saw a warning about every minutes from the source NVSTOR saying quot Reset to device Device RaidPort was issued quot http img imageshack us img oreventlog jpg Event log had about occurrences of this from like am to am which was the time frame all the freezing was occurring in Whats really weird is I then went back into the event log to get a screen shot like a few hours later and write this post and most of the time entries are somehow missing from around that time even thought I clearly saw them just a few hours ago and now there is only instance of the nvstor Warning maybe event log combined all or so into this one or something At anyrate I am wondering if this RaidPort is one of the ports on my PCI-E Esata Card which does support raid I did have a esata HD connected to one of the ports during all of this although the Esata HD's power was physically switched off the entire time the esata cable was physically connected I am really trying to get to the bottom of this and figure out what the heck is happening here because I've played like 's of movies in p all the time with no problems and now seemly out of no where I'm getting freezeing crashing that is maybe related to a SATA drive it doesn't make much sense to me Please let me know if anyone has any ideas on this or has ideas I can use to troubleshoot check things on this gt Update So while I was finishing editing this post windows just completely froze again I rebooted using regular reset button on my CPU Then it hanged at this first bios screen gt http img imageshack us img stbios jpg for about minute before loading the second screen then it hanged at this nd bios screen gt http img imageshack us img ndbios jpg with Boot from CD at the bottom for more than minutes and I then held in the power button to fully turn it off No optical media had been in the optical drive for weeks Then it booted up fine and I checked the windows system logs and they only just a critical error from like a minute ago saying that the previous shutdown was not improper The esata was unplugged this whole time and I dont see the nvstor in the event log so now I am really not sure what is going on

A:Reset to RaidPort1 Causing Crash/Freeze?(Esata?)

Hi endoftheline2 and welcome,

Some thoughts:
- Have there been any changes to the system such as driver updates, RAID/IDE/SATA software installs, or any configuration changes to these?
- Do you have the latest drivers installed for your RAID, GRAPHICS and CHIPSET from the manufacturer websites, not from Microsoft update?
- Is the PC overheating?
- Is the CPU or RAM overclocked?
- If you only use the card for SATA and don't use it in a RAID, then see if you can turn off RAID in the settings (e.g. put it into IDE mode) and/or uninstall or disable the RAID portion while still using the card for SATA. I reason that this has something to do with the card thinking that it is in RAID and there is more than one drive plugged into the card.
- Disable AHCI if it is an option for the card as well.

Can anyone tell me how to determine what I have running that makes my hard drive run like mad

I hit ctrl alt del and clicked the processes tab, theres a ton of crap in there but I can't figure out what the culprit is

Tried shutting the pc down and rebooting, same thing

Thanks in advance for your help

A:Hard drive running like crazy for no reason

Can be a number of things,
Virus checker.
Spyware checker.
Bad Sector.
Failing Harddrive.
Page file being used (which I doubt in your case)

Press the windows key and R
type in cmd
in the console type in tasklist >c:task.txt
click on start
click on your user name at the top of the menu
Open task.txt with wordpad/notepad

Running XP on an HP Pavilion ze2000 with a 60 gig HD. Several months back my HD nearly filled up on its own. I've spent hours reading and researching potential causes but to no avail. I've tried turning off System Restore then turned it back on, but nothing there. My Windows directory and sub-directories shows that there are 50 GB used in it alone, but my limited knowledge prevents me from finding the specifics regarding where all this data is and why it was placed there.

My machine runs very slow. Please help!

Here are some other details about the problem :

I've done a detailed anti-virus scan that turned up nothing.

I've googled the problem and none of the proposed solution worked.

When I was able to free up some 30gig, he browsed for a while with Firefox and that's when that space got reclaimed/filled up in a mere hour or so.

Could this be some kind of hardware problem?

I think i'm going to have to wipe my comp out soon if i cant figure out what is causing it to take up gigabytes of space for no reason over short periods of time. I went to a lan party earlier today and this hadn't happened since then, i believe someone on the network had a virus. I left my house with 440+ gigs of space and came back with 410. An hour later it was down to 405, i didnt even touch the thing within that hour. I have turned hidden folders visible and searched for nearly 2 hours now trying to find what is taking up so much space and where it is storing all of this.

My space on my hard drive keeps dwindling down to zero without me even doing anything. I've deleted some programs and created space only for it to be lost mysteriously. And FAST.

My mouse pointer has the little hourglass next to it CONSTANTLY...I'm assuming that has something to do with it...but the hourglass won't go away even as I surf the internet and whatnot.

I ran this AVG antivirus program and it found nothing. I would download some other antivirus program but obviously that's a tad difficult considering I have 0KB of space available. So please offer me some would be greatly appreciated. I don't know if maybe I can contact Sony for some help or not? Not really too sure.

A:My hard drive space keeps dwindling down for some unknown reason...assistance please?

Sounds like you've got a worm in there eating up your drive space (constantly creating and duplicating files). Have you tried a full format and reinstall? I know it sounds a bit drastic but may be necessary if you can't use av program on there. Possibly a stand-alone like McAfee's Stinger from HERE would help.

On a side note, I believe I've read something on this site about some drive corruption that would do the same thing but it's been awhile and I don't recall what it was. Possibly somebody else in here has some insight.

I need to run a hard reset on an Pavillion notebook as it won't start up at all/slowly. If I do this will it delete any saved files on the notebook as my daughter has all her exam work on it.Thx

A:Hard Reset

A reset will delete all of the files on the notebook. It is not a hard reset. that is something different. Have you tried booting to the usb recovery media that you should have created by now?If you do that, you can use Windows system restore to resolve the issue.  Do you see it below the Precautions heading in the image? Windows System refresh will also fix the issue without deleting any personal files.

Hello,I have recently smashed my screen so i am using a tv screen with a HDMI cable. I was doing a PowerPoint presentation and then it froze so I restarted my NoteBook but when I went to turn it back on the screen remained blank but it does turn on. I have tried hard reset on the notebook but I can't see it in the HDMI tv screen. And was wondering if there is a way to get everything back up and running again? Thank You.

If I make a hard reset to my phone, will be deleted also the content of the memory card?

A:Hard reset WM10

If you initiate from the settings menu you will be asked whether or not to erase the SD card. If you initiate using the key combination from a phone that will not start, I don't know what the default behavior is. I suggest you remove the card before using the key combination just to be safe.

A:PC will only boot after hard reset.

Wow, sounds like you've essentially swapped in a brand new computer.

You didn't put jumpers on the hard drive, did you? I've heard of that messing up SATA drives. Poke around the BIOS and mess with the drive settings, including raid configs that might not exist. it definately sounds like a BIOS problem related to your hard drive.

That does seem like a royal pain though.

Is there any way to disable a hard reset of a laptop (i.e. holding the power button down for five seconds)? Could one use C sharp or something like this to achieve this goal? Any help would be appreciated.

A:Disable Hard Reset

There's usually a setting in the BIOS to control this behavior. In XP and Vista you can adjust the settings for the Power button in the Control Panel...Power Options applet.

Hi,I seem to have corrupt bios.  I was setting up the system with Xubuntu 16.04 so I went into the bios settings to change it from "Legacy" to "UEFI with CMS" after I saved it and rebooted it went to a blank screen with the backlight on.  Since then I've gone through the hard reset proceedures posted here using the external method with both of the bios versions posted. So far nothing has worked but it is accessing the usb drive and the screen backlight does come on and off but only in the early stages of the process.  After that, nothing! I've tried holding the "win" key and "b" for several minutes so I'm fairly sure I'm not letting go too early.  No flashing lights or beeps! So is this the right proceedure?  Any suggestions?

I shut down my laptop today and went shopping. When I came home, it wouldn't turn on. This has happened a couple of times before and I've tried giving it a hard reset. I tried turning it on without the battery and just the power cord and nothing. The light where the power cord goes in is on when it is plugged in. I tried everything and still won't start. My warranty for this laptop is gone and don't know what else to try. Please help!

A:Won't start. Tried hard reset and everything

Hi @krakaholyknight, Thank you for your query. I am happy to lend a helping hand. To confirm that I have the correct product, yours is a HP Stream Notebook-11-d007na? I understand that your notebook was working when you shut it down. When you tried turning it on again it would not start. This has occurred a couple of times before and a hard reset  resolved the issue. You tried removing the battery but that did not help. You do see a light on the power port when connected to AC power.  Here is a link to HP Notebook PCs - Computer Does Not Start (Windows 10). Please let me know the outcome. If this has helped you to resolve the issue, please click on "Accept as Solution" on said post.

Hi, I've been working on a computer that has had a lot of recent issues with its hard drive, and I'm getting tired of trying to fix it with the computer utilities. Could I have a link to instructions on how to completely reset my hard drive, erasing everything on it? The computer is a Dimension 8250 and doesn't have a warrantee any longer, nor does it have anything valuable on it, although I could easily transfer the few remaining files that I would like to keep onto another computer. I also have the XP boot disc, so I should be ready to do this. Thks.

Hi .

If "reset" means delete everything...

You can just use the XP delete everything on any drive, before creating a new partition/formatting/installing XP.

i have an On-Q router, model# P/N 364772-01.

I'm trying to re-establish the home network, but I cant get anything to connect to the router. IP config shows no gateway, and I cant ping the router. I dont think I've ever had to do a hard reset on this router, but nothing blinks or flashes to indicate a reset took. This is a wired network, nothing is wi-fi.

Is there anything I can do??? Or is the router a brick now?

Edit: Im googling like mad, but it doesnt help when i have such an obscure router model. Would i be able to access anything if i connected my computer to the WAN port?

This happened EVERY DAY. I have my PC set to turn off automatically at 1 AM. If I leave it on all day then the next morning I'll come to it and it'll just have the desktop there and none of the icons or ctrl alt del or even pressing the power button will work. I have to hard reset. It's screwing up my drives!

Now, I have a lot of money riding on the stuff on my storage drives and this is really messing me up. I am thinking I need to build a whole new system because the stuff on my drives is not anything to mess around with. I have them all backed up on several clouds and NASes just in case. I don't have a crash report or BSOD to report.

I did have problems with blue screening a few months ago but that since stopped. Should I just build a new system?
