  • HP Pavilion PC p2: black screen after log in


    My screen on my desktop turns black after login.  I can still see the cursor.  I hit ctrl alt del, went to Task Manager typed in rstrui to do a system restore.  I went back a few months of restoration, but it did not work.

    The weird thing is sometimes I wait about 30-45 min disappears from the black screen.  But then reboot, I have to start the same thing.

    Any ideas or help would be very appreciated.

    Black screen, hold down the ctrl and alt keys and press DELETE.

    Select Task Manager.

    At the bottom left, select "show processes from all users".

    Click the name column header to organize processes in alphabetical order.

    Look for an entry called to run once Wrapper (RunOnce.exe) - If you see it listed, right-click on it and select end task.

  • Late 2009 iMac Sierra gel & incomplete close

    Hi all

    I did a clean install of Sierra on my iMac late 2009, 3.60 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, the 12 GB of RAM, a 1 TB drive, ATI graphics card. Everything seemed to happen. Now, I have two problems:

    1. at least twice daily than the iMac just hangs. The mouse moves, but can not select anything. Cmd - Tab will not pass applications. Keyboard does not respond. All I can say is that I always Mail, Safari, & Open Office 4.1.2 running. Have to hold the power button to turn off and restart.

    2. at the end of the day, when I stopped, the process is not finished and I just get a black screen (computer for desktop is black, but the items on the desktop are not visible), with the only docking station. Still, the only way out seems to be to hold down the power button to turn off.

    Anyone else having these issues? Is it that I can save for a clean install of Yosemite that worked perfectly before?

    Many thanks in advance,

  • iMac for a new user tutorials

    I bought a new iMac 21 with the retina a few months ago, but have had trouble and wasted hours and hours trying to figure out how to do many things that were so simple on the PC I had for years!

    I've now stored in its original box and put it in stock at home because I can not just use it.

    Are there sites with tutorials that will teach me how to use the software as pages, numbers, iTunes and Photos?

    If you click on the desktop (a black space on the Mac screen), you will see next to that the Apple icon in the upper left of your screen, the word "Finder". You are at the basic level of the Mac where it all begins. If then click on 'help' you will see the option to select "Get to know your Mac" as in the screenshot below part. You can also see the tutorials similar to this web site of Apple
