"STOP ERROR" COMPUTER AUTOMATICALLY SHUTS DOWN. DOES NOT RE-BOOT. JVC


Answers :

Hi

The problem might be with ur RAM.. try to remove and re-insert it.. If it doesnt work, try to reset the CMOS battery.

A common cause for this is a program of some sort that's preventing the shutdown. Luckily, there is a way to force stubborn programs to exit. Read this

Well simply insert the OEM (the os install) disc for your laptop and it will do all for you to format. Or you can do this:

1. For this to work you must create a MS-DOS bootable floopy. How to create a MS-DOS bootable floopy:

(In your case, as you do not have a version of Windows on your system, ask a friend if you can use their computer to create one, it does not involve anything that could mess up their computer!)

Making a bootable floopy: (For Windows XP)
1. Boot the computer to Windows, and logon
2. Insert a floopy disk
3. In My Computer, right click the A: Drive.
4. From the drop-down menu, click Format...
5. Enable the checkbox beside Create an MS-DOS startup disk.
6. Click the Start button and follow the screen instructions until the process is complete.

Now, still using your friends computer, you need to copy some files to this bootable floopy.

1. Download Killdisk from here: http://download2.lsoft.net/killdisk.zip
2. When the download is complete, open up the .zip file and copy and paste the following files to the bootable floppy: Copy and paste these files: Copy the [email protected] KillDisk for Hard Drives file (KILLDISK.EXE) and DOS-extender file (DOS4GW.EXE) to the bootable floppy disk.

Now its time to start erasing!

WARNING: FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY. It does not really matter if you muck up though, because you can just inserting that floppy till you get it right!

1. With the PC power off, insert the [email protected] KILLDISK for Hard Drives floppy disk into drive A:.
2. Start the PC by turning on the power. The screen will display the Microsoft DOS prompt.
3. At the DOS prompt, run [email protected] KILLDISK for Hard Drives by typing:
KILLDISK.EXE

All system hard drives and floppy drives will be displayed in the left pane along with their system information in the right pane.

Change the position cursor using the keyboard [Down] and [Up] arrow keys.

Information in the right pane will change according to the structure of the detected devices.

4. Hard drive devices are numbered by the system BIOS. A system with a single hard drive will show it as number 80h. Subsequent hard drive devices will be numbered consecutively. For example the second device will be shown as 81h

Be certain that the drive you are pointing to is the one that you want to erase. All data will be permanently erased with no chance for recovery.

5. If there is any doubt about which drive to select, preview the sectors in the device by pressing [Ctrl + S].
Scroll up and down using the keyboard arrow keys, [Page Up], [Page Down], [Home] and [End] navigation keys. Jump to a specific sector using [Ctrl + G]. When you are satisfied with the identification of the device, press [Esc] to exit this screen.

6. When you have selected the device to erase, move the cursor to that device and press [Enter] on the keyboard.

Using the keyboard arrow keys, select the feature that you want to configure. Press [Enter] to make a change.

The Confirm Action screen will then appear.


7. This is the final step before removing data from the selected drive for ever. Once the process has started, you may stop it by pressing the [Esc] key.

Type ERASE-ALL-DATA and press [Enter]. Progress of the erasing procedure will be monitored in the Disk Erasing screen.

7. If you wish to stop the process for any reason after it has begun, press the [Esc] key. Please note, however that erased data will not be recoverable. There is nothing more to do until the end of the disk erasing process. The application will operate on its own without user intervention.

If there are any errors, for example due to bad clusters, they will be reported on the Interactive screen. If such a message appears, it will be possible to cancel the operation (by pressing [Esc]), or continue erasing data.

Thats all folk
You can now install your Operating system simply by insterting the install disc!!
