My computer is not working

Hi,

A few days ago my computer stopped working. The screensaver and my Windows XP have not been working for days. I do not know why this happened as there were no prompt error displays or messages. I copied an image as well as some files on my screen monitor that I purchased way back on February 29th 2004 in a computer shop down the street. I do not know if this is the cause of the problem, for latest computer monitors. Is it?

Please enlighten me so I could solve this pestering problem.

Thanks

Hi Gabby,

The problem could be your PC is infected by Viruses, Malware or Spyware. Try to run your computer in Safe mode. Simply, turn on or restart your computer and then hold the F8 button. Then you will have several options in command prompt, ignore them all and choose only "Safe Mode" and press Enter. If it continues, you able to gain access the start up screen, Go to Start and restart your PC again so it will boot up normally, but if the system freezes, reinstalling the Windows can solve your problem.
 
Regards
Michael

What are the possible symptoms that could have resulted into your computer not working, did ir flicker when you were copying the files, did it just shut down and never powered on again, did it give a BSD (Blue Screen of Death) – (A blue screen with an error message and a warning)? Try to remember exactly what happened before the machine collapsed to avoid formatting and losing personal data when the can be avoided anyway. Does it power on, do the fans move when you switch it on, is there any sign of it trying to load something and then stops somewhere?,

These are the small things you need to check before concluding to format the system. If possible try to start the computer in safe mode by restarting and continuously pressing the F8 key on the keyboard, once the computer starts, right-click on My Computer and click Manage – Click the plus sign [+] on Event Log, then System. On the left there is very important events that could have led to the collapse of you system, check the errors indicated in red and this can be very helpful in knowing what caused the fault. It becomes a lot more easier so that future issues can easily be resolved.
