darn it! computer woes.

December 28th, 2009 at 11:00 pm

Something has happened to DF's computer and I don't know how to fix it. Usually I can fix most things (with the aid of google) but this I can't.

Last week he had a virus on it which was tricky to get around but I eventually fixed it.

Now when he starts it, it goes to the error bluescreen and tells me to disable or delete the software & hardware we've recently installed (which is none) and gives me some technical info that I don't really understand, and tells me to use safe mode if I need to (but it won't let me even get into safe mode, it just goes back to the bluescreen) Argh.

DF thinks it is because when he shut it down two days ago (the last time he used it) he accidently flicked the powerswitch off at the wall before it finished shutting down - but I don't think that's it.

It's an old computer but it's not that old - I think he got it in 05 or 06.

Does anyone recommend any good tech help websites? Or has had this happen before?

    That sounds like the blue screen of death. Google that and see what recommendations you get.

    i did after posting my entry, thanks fruitbowlk. yeah we are going to get some friends to look at it (they are coming over for new years, and we are going to get them to work teehee!) and if not then will get a technician over. *sigh* didn't want to pay anyone, but the information on DF's computer is worth more than a couple of hundred we will pay a technician. (family photos and such - of course DF backs up... NOT!)

    I had something like that with my laptop - it overheated, cooking the memory. I replaced the memory, and added an external fan - that seemed to work.
