Preferred Solution: My Laptop starts up fine but wont do anything!?!?!? Please help

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

Basically what the title says. I have a new computer which I spent about 1300 dollars on. I built it myself and everything ran fine for about 6 months until I tried to overclock it. The bios and overclocking are pretty ***** proof since the motherboard is fairly new. You literally hit one button from normal to overclock. Since then when I boot the computer up the computer comes on for about 3 seconds, the monitor doesn't react at all, then it shuts itself off for another 3 seconds then boots up normally. Any ideas what the problem is or how to fix it? I've seen some similar cases on here but they aren't exactly the same.
 

A:I overclocked now my computer starts, turns itself off, then starts back up fine

Yes, turn off overclocking!

A friend has a slight issue. I am sorry i do not have there pc specs to hand. The internet is fine & the hub was checked by virgin. When you view the connection manager it shoes 3 icons on the home network. A bridge from there PC, to the router(which is green) then a bright to the internet thats black with a X in the middle. The tool tip display on the internet connectivity system tray says "local connect only" i did manage to get "Local connect & internet" once but it still would not connect. The diagnostic tool could not resolve the issue. But it says check your domain name server(DNS)

What programs can i run? I was thinking maybe dial a fix but could not get connected to download it? I will also run MBAM & remove AVG and replace it with another. Any suggestions?

I just installed a Asus P5N-MX motherboard I received, after the abit one I had kept causing random freezes. Still not sire why it did that. It would freeze:
when booting
when opening a file in Windows Explorer
when running an .exe file
when coming out of Stand by or Idle
when I move the mouse
when I am about to save a file
when I am running similar programs (i.e. Firefox and Skype)
when I'm not doing anything on the PC for 5-10 minutes
Always at random....there was never a set order to how it did this, just common scenarios.

Nether Visionman or abit knew what was wrong. That is why I asked for a replacement, and got the Asus motherboard. At first I got a bunch of issues, like the PC not starting and then a " USB device over current" error. Those I solved eventually....with some loosening and tightening of screws.

Now I can start my PC, see the boot menu....suddenly the PC shuts off. I have NO idea why this happens, and neither Visionman( people who sent the replacement) or Asus ( the makers) has been able to help me. I can't even get in contact with Customer Service.

I run Windows XP on this PC. Please..someone help me out here?

Running Windows XP. Starts fine, but when finally opens, the only thing showing is the START and TASK BAR. Programs show all EMPTY. Tried opening in SAFE MODE, get the same results. Go to RUN, type c:\ program files and can see the programs, but when I attempt to open, I get screen that wants me to choose which program to open with. Have RKILL and MBAM on USBkey...cannot access to run. Any suggestions? I'm pretty good a solving issues, but this one has me stumped! HELP!!!!!

A:XP starts fine, no programs (shows empty)

FYI - As I received no replies to my query, I tried a few other things to help my situation. As noted previously, I was able to open in Safe Mode, but couldn't access the programs. Whenever I attempted to open a program, a screen came up wanting me to choose the program to run it with.

Since I was able to access my USB key but typing in the drive letter at the RUN option, I located MALWAREBYTES and just kept clicking on the program. It finally started (leaving several open windows wanting me to choose the program again). It ran an immediate scan, locating PUM.WHITE SMOKE, along with numerous other files with the same prefix. I was able to eradicate the infections, but still have an EMPTY start menu.

As a precaution, I have run RKILL and MALWAREBYTES again, along with my AVG to make sure that all is well. However, AVG did not detect this originally.

Hi, I would like to start off by my PC's specifications, I have a HP Mini 210-3002SA notebook, originally it had a 250GB Hard drive and a 1GB RAM, Windows 7 Started OS, my previous hard drive got corrupt and stopped working so I purchased a new 1TB hard drive in which the windows 7 starter was installed by a technician and I had upgraded the RAM to a 2GB . My PC was working fine until recently it kept coming up with an error for a missing Conduit BackgroundContainer.DLL file every time I started the PC, so I downloaded auto run from Microsoft website and had deleted the missing DLL file and checked the PC for viruses and there was one virus from Bettersurf and my antivirus software removed it. I started my PC again and it starts up fine but it freezes when I open any applications, SafeMode will not let me run the antivirus with or without networking and I have no idea what's happening. I uninstalled recently downloaded programs which were MS Visual Basic and Team Viewer before deleting the entire conduit file using auto run. So please please please help me... I appreciate your efforts and your help ...

PS. Since the new hard drive had only the window 7 OS installed, I had installed all the necessary software drivers that originally came installed in the PC from the HP Website using a USB for transferring the drivers from one PC to another until Wi-Fi was enabled. It still was not like how it' was originally with the speakers making crackling sounds.... Read more

When I start up windows it loads up normally but after about two minutes whatever I am doing freezes and not long after that the task bar freezes too but i can still move my mouse.
The computer has been like this for two days. It has been normal before this happened. I just turned on my computer in the morning and it screwed up. I did not install any big updates beforehand.

I have tried
-System Restore
-Scanning with Microsoft Security Essentials
-Scanning with Malwarebytes
-Searching through the event logs for a specific problem
-Restarting numerous times

msconfig seems to be the place that will make it work. If I disable all the services and open up steam and chrome it doesn't freeze (but there is no sound, wifi, or brightness)

I have tried enabling the sound and wifi etc services but I think there are some services that need to be running.
I've tried playing around with the general tab and the boot tab in msconfig too but nothing happened.

Please help as I use this laptop for making music and playing games (Currently in the middle of hl2 for the third time and earthbound zero / mother 1 on the nes)

My computer died and a friend gave me a Pavilion DV8300 CTO notebook, XP Pro, which I restored to factory settings using the recovery partition. Most everything works fine, the computer will shut down and start up, but if you tell it to restart it hangs on the black HP screen with "press <esc> to change boot order" and "press <F10> to enter setup," neither of which do anything. Actually, that's not entirely true. If you click F10, it just tells you to keep waiting and never does anything. I've flashed the BIOS and updated all the drivers, I have no idea why it won't reboot, but it is curious. Any help is appreciated.

I've got MS Office 2003 loaded on our home computer. I'm an administrator and my wife, who is the only other user, is not. I've installed MS Office 2003 so we can both use it. But for some reason, whenever my wife logs on and clicks on the Word icon on her desktop Word starts by starting the Word Install routine. A window pops up that says something like "preparing to install". Then it vanishes. Then nothing! After quite a while (it seems) Word may appear on screen, whereas for me, when I log on and click on the same Word icon (I mean shortcut on my desktop) it starts normally and appears within seconds. In either case, it runs fine, but why won't it start up normally when my wife logs on?

Hi, I have a strange issue with my PC, I keep getting BSOD whenever I power my PC on. It BSOD's a few minutes after booting Windows or sometimes half way through loading with different error messages and usually repeats the same process about 3 times, after that all is fine. The PC will not crash at all, and would be on for hours on end, either idling, playing media/gaming/browsing etc.

BSOD Error messages are often; driver not equal or less etc, USB Bug code, non page area etc.

I have attached a few days worth of Minidumps that have been created (most recent).

Please note, iv'e tested my memory (which most always suggest) and Memtest found no faults on a full test. And I know for sure it cannot be that otherwise it would crash whilst doing something that requires much more memory use.

Iv'e took every USB's out of the ports and the problem is still there.

It must be a corrupt driver of some kind or a problem with bootup/system files?

If you need any more info, let me know. Thankyou!

I have searched through a lot of threads and couldn't find any with this specific problem. Yesterday when I got up I turned on my computer. I have a Compaq Desktop with an Intel Celeron D processor and Vista Home Basic with 2 gigs of Ram and a LCD monitor. When I turned on the monitor the screen started flashing white, so I immediately shut the computer off. When I turned it back on the screen was still white but it had the warning saying that I may have had recently installed hardware and it failed. So it optioned me to go into repair mode, which I did. Repair mode gave me the option of using System Restore and I used that. The computer rebooted fine. When the PC was done with system restore I got a error message from Norton Anti-Virus error number 3035,2. My anti virus was turned off and I was prompted to do some hot fix. Which wouldn't download when I tried it so later in the day I found the Norton webpage and downloaded the Hotfix and it has worked fine. Norton Antivirus also had to be turned back on and updated and it all worked fine. I ran diagnostics, defragmented and anti-virus checks everything and it all says everything is working fine.

Now I am oddball in the fact that I turn off my computer when I am not using it. So I turned off the computer and few hours later I turned it on again and there was no white screen. So I had to go out for most of the day and when I got back I turned it on and had the white screen again. So I turned it off and then back on ... Read more

I have a Dell XPS 1530 Laptop that is running Windows 8.1 Home Premium.  When I first start up the computer it runs fine.  After it runs for 10 to 15 minutes  it will begin beeping.  If I wait a few minutes the beeping will stop but then come back on again. 
There are no errors showing in device manager.  It is not overheating.  I've run Malawarebytes, Super Anti Spyware, and Ccleaner.  There are no threats in any of the scans.
It isn't a BIOS code.  I don't know if one of the internal hardware is going bad or what.
Any ideas would sure be appreciated.

When i press the start button, it turns on for a moment, then shuts down and starts beeping. I have counted 8 continuous beeps, then a pause, then another 8 beeps, and so on. What is happening?
Also, my model is a Dell inspiron 15 5000 series.
Thanks in advance.

A:My laptop starts beeping when turning it on, but never properly starts

The system isn't detecting the display panel.
If the system is under warranty, call Dell. If not,
Check the connection between the display cable and mainboard.  If it's loose, reconnect it.
If there's evident damage to the cable, and it's a non-touch model, replace the display harness.
If it's a touch or tablet screen, the cable isn't separately replaceable.  In that case, the screen assembly needs to be replaced.
If that doesn't solve the problem, the mainboard is the faulty part and will need to be replaced.
If you need a reference to the service manual, please post the full model number (i.e., Inspiron 5521, etc.).

Briefly, I've been using my monitor instead of the laptop screen for over a year now. Everything works fine. Suddenly yesterday the monitor went black! It's actually still functioning on some level but doesn't keep the display. I was doing something on the internet, possibly saving a password in RoboForm, maybe just wandering. There are no error codes or indicators.

'Longly'....
When I reboot, having previously changed the setting to dual - laptop & monitor, it briefly flashes the Vaio splash screen, then black, then briefly flashes the Windows splash screen. Then black. The laptop screen is fine. I've tried both 'Single Display - Monitor' and 'dual display' - Laptop as Primary; 'dual display' - Monitor as Primary, and in none does the monitor work - laptop screen always works.

If I unplug the VGA output from the laptop, then plug it back in, the monitor briefly (maybe 1-2 seconds) shows the desktop images perfectly! Then black! It seems that everything is actually working just not properly! It's making me crazy. I did try downloading the most current graphics driver from Intel...nothing. The monitor continues to show a green light (indicating that it is receiving a signal). The audio (plugged from the monitor into the front of the laptop by a separate plug) continues to play thru the monitor.

To Recap: Display on 'Monitor only' has worked just fine for a year. Now it won't show any image... Read more

A:Laptop fine, 2nd monitor fine - but no display!

Bump.....still hoping....
P.S. I DO have a signal! Just no display on monitor.

A few mornings back, at regular morning start up time, my desk top Acer PC failed to start up and load. Lights on tower and keyboard both blinked on and off, monitor was dead, but nothing beyond that happened.

I unplugged, reconnected, attempted to power up repeated times, finally (since the first time this started, this now is daily pattern), for reasons I cannot pin point, it fires up, and runs all day like a champ.

The only thing different the night that proceeded the first morning this happened was it was a night here that called for me to keep the AC running all night, due to heat.

Any clue as to why this is happening and info on what will resolve it.

I thought, perhaps a hardware issue, but as I stated, once it starts, it runs all day long 100% normal.

Thanks.

This is not a hardware problem because I had a tech out and he put a new drive in with the same result. The drive reads DVD's ok but syas that brand new DVD's are not writable. When I check the properties of the DVD it shows full, no free space . I have tried both plus and minus all brand new with no success. The tech recommended a system restore but I will lose some apps which I no longer have the disks for. Interesting thing is I bought an external drive today and although it show as a drive in My COmputer when I click properties it shows FULL just like the DVD's. Is something compromising drives or is this beyond that??

Ok, heres the situation..

My computer - HP Pavilion P7-1010. Windows 7 64bit home edition..

My Laptop - HP mini 1000 with XP

I play this game, Trickster Online.. and they have a &quot;stay connected for 100+hrs&quot; event..

On my laptop with XP, it will stay connected until I Disconnect it.

On my PC, it will stay connected for like 5-20mins, then log everything out. EVEN if i am still using the internet.. (its not Idle!)

I've tried the following:

-Turned off &quot;Disable this to save power&quot;
-Turned all my Windows power settings to &quot;never hibernate, no screensaver, etc&quot; even no shutting off of the monitor.
-Tried Wireless and wired, (Both same results)
-Reformating the computer to get rid of any rogue programs messing the net up
-Updateing drivers and Windows
Is there maybe some weird option in the settings for Windows 7 broadband card?
or maybe some weird setting in windows 7 to cut my net after so long?

Ive searched everywhere and cant find anything

THANKS SO MUCH Also - Heres some info http://ompldr.org/vYWFtbg

I am trying to fix a friends laptop, a Sony Vaio running Vista home premium. The problem is that after booting you can start 5 or 6 programs by clicking on the icons after that you cannot start any programs. I have scanned the machine with Malwarebytes and avg and the pctools pctuneup onetime fix, I have also manually found and removed a couple of malware programs and used msconfig and regedit to look for anything suspicious. ( I am an electronics engineer and also write software so not computer illiterate). If I boot up to safe mode programs run normally. Any suggestions as to what is causing this?

I just repaired my computer that was shocked and fried in an electric storm 2 months ago, And now its been 3 days and whenever I start it up it goes to the windows logo and shows it loading but right before it goes into the account select screen it just stops loading! I've tried everything, safe mode, start it last time it worked, start it normally, and I even repaired all my files.


Any ideas?

A:Windows starts up but wont finish..

Well the obvious answer is that the computer is not "repaired".

What fried and what did you do about it ?

Can you get to safe mode ?

Do you have an XP disk to run chkdsk, fixboot & fixmbr ?

Have you tried a different monitor, al though you say it works on your friends you also say it's intermittent, it could simply be that the monitor is faulty and moving it cures the problem.

Hey guys hows it goin...Just have a slight problem with my Motherboard

When i press the Power Button button my motherboard turns on and the cpu fan starts moving and stuff but the boot screen on the moniter comes like afer 15 to 25 seconds..Later when i try to Shut down the computer using the Shutdown option in Windows My windows shuts down and my moniter turns off but the Cpu fan and the mobo are still ON so i have to fully turn them off by either holding the power button for u know 10 seconds or something or turning off the computer by pressing the PSU switch at the back

I tried changing video cards but the same problem occured....Any Suggestion...Besides these problem the mobo works fine...

Thanks in Advance

A:MOBO wont Turn Off...But works fine

Your motherboard may not be 100% ACPI compatible... I think that was the term..

Basically it is like old 95/98 days when windows would shutdown and give you the message on your screen sayin it is now safe to turn your computer off.

I think the same applies here... when and if you installed your o/s did you have any problems with the install. did you get a blue screen saying something like your system is not fully acpi compatible and to restart windows setup and hit the F8 or F10 key... one of them (not the F6 it is used to install 3rd party Device drivers)...
I had the same problem with my old ABIT NF7-S ver1.2 motherboard. no problems other than having to power it off manually after a shutdown, which was very seldom..... ( I suspected there was a motherboard problem because i could not get the darn thing to boot to anything other than the floppy drive or IDE hard drive so i replaced that with the ABIT NF7-S2 and it works like a charm..... You may want to contact the manufacturer of the board to verify its ACPI compatibility

I just built my first computer. When i was done I turned it on installed all the drivers and OS and everything was fine for about 5 days.
Then suddenly i go to turn it on and nothing. Not even the fans booted up. So I opened it up and the standby LED was on on the motherboard but nothing was happening when I would press the power button.
So I listened a little closer and when i would hit the power button the power supply would make this low volume high pitch beeping sound. Almost like an alarm.

Does anyone know what this could be? Did I short out a part on the motherboard? Maybe in the power supply?
 

A:Computer build: Turned on fine for day now wont

Disconnect the power cable from the back of the power supply, press and hold the power button on the front of the case for 30 seconds, then plug in the power and try turning it on.

If that doesn't work, try another power supply from another computer.

It has been hooked up to lan before.

The other comp isn't using the lan so i went to plug in my old vista.


Now it wont get on the internet.

It can see the other computers connected but it can't network to them....it can just see them.

The lan is enabled. But it says limited access if that means anything.

In order to use the internet i must use my wireless.

Hi,

Had a problem with a virus and all sorted bar one problem. The PC boots up fine applications run excel word firefox etc but none of the services will run. So have no printers internet connection etc. Went into my computer, manage, services and tried to start them from there but none will. Have I deleted a default registry key or something to do with winlogon so no services run? It seems so close to be fully operational don't really want to reload the whole hard disk. Device manager tells me everything is OK and all drivers are there. It seems to be a services startup problem. I was rather hoping xp would recreate a default key to make all the services work! Silly me! Hoping this is a straightforward fix. Thanks in advance for suggestions - apart from I should have been more careful. Cheers
