How come my home built machine will not come out of sleep mode correctly? 

by on May 20, 2013

Q: I have built my own new PC, and have installed Windows 7 64-bit Home Premium. When the PC goes into “sleep” mode and I jostle my mouse for the machine to re-start/reboot, the screen comes up with only my wallpaper, i.e. no Icons and no Task Bar. Does anyone have a clear and intelligent explanation for what it is I either may do or need to do to correct this anomaly?

How come it takes my computer a long time to boot after installing tune-up utilities with a hack? 

by on March 25, 2013

Q: Here’s the deal. I downloaded tune-up utilities with hack (yeah I know) and opened a game. I’ve been playing for an hour or two, than my comp freezed and couldn’t do anything but to force shut it down. Now, everytime i reboot computer it takes up to 7 minutes to enter windows. this is the second time it is happening and now i know for a fact it’s tuneup utilities that is causing this problem.

I couldn’t delete the program manually, so I went to safe mode and used system restore, and deleted program remains from program files, but still boot takes too long.

First time when it happened, it sort of fixed itself, but had to format discs and instal new windows 8-9 times.

Also, red ligth’s been on my comp as an indicator that procesor is working all the time (normally it blinks sometimes)
what can I do to fix it? I’m using windows7 64-bit ultimate

Moving to 32bit from 64bit 

by on April 15, 2010

Q: I am running Windows Vista Ultimate 64bit OS and am having multiple compatibility issues and installation problems. I’ve acquired Windows Vista Ultimate 32bit OS and would like to install it. Do I have to reformat my hard drive and lose all my programs or can I install the 32bit OS over the 64bit OS? Will this action convert the 64bit OS to 32bit?

A: When you switch between a 32bit and a 64bit version of a Windows based operating systems you really need to reformat your hard drive and start from scratch. It doesn’t matter if you are going from 32bit to 64bit or going from 64bit back to 32bit. There is just so much that changes that having anything left from the previous install is going to cause so many problems. Just make sure you back up all your data and have all the install disks you will need for all your programs before starting the process.
