Having problems with your ASUS PC Desktops ?

My Asus notebook series X52S is not booting up, it is turning on, and saying that there is a critical error and then requests whether i start windowns normally of start up in safe mode. I request safe mode, however after about 5 minutes it just hangs on a black screen and nothing else happens, sometimes it gets through to the vista welcome page and just hangs there too.


Answers :

There's a selection on that screen for "last known good configuration" - try that, sometimes a driver that has been recently installed can cause a machine to crash on boot. If that doesn't help, you can attempt to boot from the installation CD that came with the computer and repair the system. Boot from the install CD, select ENTER in order to continue with the setup program (trust me, we're not going to do a full setup, but you have to choose the first option here...). More files will load from the CD - the next screen should be the repair screen - it should say "To repair the selected Windows XP installation, press R" - press R, and the repair should begin. Reboot after it's done.

Video driver ok I admit it, I was an idiot and disabled the on board video through the device manager in system tools. windows starts but then the screen goes black obviously. it hangs in safe mode also. Is there any way I can re-enable the on board video [I looked everywhere through the BIOS and found nothing pertinent I don't think] without having to find and old PCI video card to detect new hardware? and one more, I have Office 2003 on our machines using XP Pro. all of a sudden I cannot save

Virus? My computer has been sending error messages that I have a potential virus threat and provides virus protection options. WHen I select them it takes me to an advertiser page. Also, my wallpaper is changes and will not change back. When I select ctr -alt- dlt a message appears basically stating that the administrator has blocked this option. Finally, it will not let me download any virus removers and I believe the one I have is outdated because it doesn't find this virus. What else can I do


Firstly, the most important thing you can do is keep up-to-date virus protection-either a paid program like "Mcafee" or a free version, (which I'm not sold on but better than nothing)like AVG.....available here:http://free.avg.com/download-avg- ... Gateway 450SX4 Notebook
