Turn the PC on in Safe Mode Press F8 in bootup screen. + Empty Recycle Bin + Download & Install CCleaner from http://www.ccleaner.com/download to cleanup junkfiles on your PC, yes it's a freeware. + Clean your PC using CCleaner. + Stop some windows XP services that run in the background. To do this, read article I create in http://xhspz.wordpress.com/2008/07/13/st... Hope this help, HSP
dennis m is on the right track. you need to boot in safemode. If F8 is not working, you'll need to google safemode for whatever OS your running. If windows starts up in Safemode you have a software driver thats corrupt, or an added component thats gone bad (i.e. graphics card). when you boot in safe mode only the minimum items required to launch windows will run. Enter your devices panel and disable your graphics card at the minimum to start trouble shooting. 1. Click start and in the start search box type Device Manager and press enter. 2. Click on the + sign beside the Display driver. 3. Select all the options listed under it and select Disable 4. Restart
Possible cause: Processor is over-heated. Because it is dirt by dust, or the Fan on top of it not working, or it begin to be a broken processor.
Based on your symptoms you may have a bad video card or it may be overheating. Open the case and blow out all the dust. Leave the case open and try your reformat. If it happens again, replace the video card. If it still happens then your motherboard may be the culprit - especially if you are using on-board video.
No need to worry !! uninstall ur motherboard and processor drivers and reinstall them again!! Use d CDs which came with ur computer !! OR SIMPLY INSERT D MOTHERBOARD CD AND LET D CD AUTO INSTALL ALL D DRIVERS EACH N EVERY DRIVER !! or u can also manually install all d drivers !! Gud Luck !!
try deleting the drivers and allow windows to use its own ones the problem might be codec related rather than driver. download codecs from ace http://www.free-codecs.com/download/ACE_...
