Having problems with your HP Pavilion a1020n (PS583AA) PC Desktop ?

Cannot open a control panel without desktop icons disappearing and the computer appearing to be locked up. Also cannot form a restore. I have windows XP.

Answers :

\015\012It may well be some form of virus or spyware.

It may also be that you have too many applications running at once eg. lots of toolbars and instant message typ programs.

It can also happen on graphic intensive applications.

You should rule out nasty stuff first.

When did you last do a maintenance?
\015\012Defrag? Look for spys? Clean your register?
\015\012I just posted a answer for a similar question.
\015\012Here is what I suggest:
\015\012Get CClean a free utility ... available at file hipo. Google it for fast access.
\015\012Get Defraggler from the same outfit
\015\012In CClean, you want to run the first two items which will clean your computer of excess C as in CClean (they once called it **** cleaner)
\015\012Defraggler is a llittle better defragmenter than windows defragmenter.
\015\012Get RegClean from Comodo and run that.
\015\012Go to PCWorld.com and get the free Spybot, search and destroy - a free utility. Beware of the pay look-a-likes
\015\012If you want a pay maintenance program, I use Windows Live OneCare.
\015\012Run all these things at least monthly and maybe more often to suit yourself.
\015\012I hope this has helped you

I am trying to burn a DVD that is 1 hour and 49 minutes long and it will not burn correctly. On a DVD-RW it only recorded just a small amount at the beginning and also had music in the background.

Model = Philips freevents X50 NoteBook F12DT Say, I wonder if you can help? Clearing up some space, deleting some old 'files' from 1995, I thought I was safe. It appears I may have deleted the Drivers for the Multimedia Controller as I can hear no sound from my DVD player, or Realplayer, or Windows Media Player. Also, the very useful Volume adjustment icon down on the toolbar in desktop has disappeared also. (Would love to have this Icon back, plus my machine's sound restored also).

If you have only done this recently, have you tried restoring your laptop to a date prior to losing the drivers. It does mean that any other changes you have made will also be restored so any updates will have to be done again. ... HP Pavilion ZE5730 Notebook
