  • Startup and display does not work well.

    When I start Windows XP it takes about 4 minutes to the icons appears.  They appear of normal size and the screen turns white and the size of the icons and programs and the internet are extra-large. I go into display properties and reconfigure and find his game on 8-bit!  After configuration back to normal display and restart or turn on again the same thing happens!

    Also, I tried to do a system restore and it does not work either. Please advise me on what to do. Thank you!

    Hi RhondaHeaven,

    I suspect that your display card drivers are corrupted. You have your cd/dvd drivers? If this is not the case, download your display drivers (you will get the model and make from Device Manager - click on start-> settings-> Control Panel-> system-> hardware-> device-> display adapter Manager).

    Click Start-> settings-> Control Panel-> system-> hardware-> Device Manager-> right click on your display-> Uninstall adapter.

    Uninstall display drivers Intel of add/remove programs.

    Restart your computer. Reinstall the drivers from the cd or downloaded driver.

    I hope this helps.

  • Computer is very slow and IE does not work all the time.

    I bought a computer from my old employeer.  He is doing all sorts of things, or should I say not to do all sorts of things.  It is very slow and IE does not work all the time.  They have questions arise and ask if the administrator oks things and other things like that.  It came with any disks.  I would like to wipe, clean and load a new disc, but I don't know where to find the disc or if I can do it.   Can someone please?

    Hello

    Proceed as follows to contribute to these two questions. You can probably buy the disks of Vista machine to system or get
    the former employer to do it for you if necessary.

    Try these and it can also be a good idea to update your main drivers later. The General corruption can also play a
    role in this issue. And even the TCP/IP stack might need to be refreshed.

    What antivirus/antispyware/security products do you have on the machine? Be one you ALREADY had on this
    machine, including those you have uninstalled (they leave leftovers behind which can cause strange problems).

    If no joy there's something blocking perhaps.

    Start - All Programs - Accessories - System Tools - IE with no Addons - what works best?

    IE - Tools - Internet Options - Security tab - click on reset all default areas - apply / OK

    Close and restart IE or IE with no addons

    not better?

    IE - tools - manage Addons (for sure disable SSV2 if it is there, it is no longer necessary but Java always install

    Control Panel - Device Manager - Display Adapter - note the brand and complete model of your

    cannot do anything as MS is far behind the certification of drivers) - then do a right click - Uninstall - REBOOT
    This will refresh the driver stack.

    Repeat this for network - card (NIC), Wifi network, sound, mouse, and keyboard if 3rd party with their

    Now go to the site of the manufacturer of system (Dell, HP, Toshiba as examples) (restoration) and then of the manufacturer of the device
    (Realtek, Intel, Nvidia, ATI, for example) and get their latest versions. (Look for the BIOS, Chipset and software)
