How To Dual Boot A Pc?_9455Computer Help_My Laptop Keeps Shutting off on Me



One of the questions I i am often desired is how to speed up the time it takes
Windows to load or trainer. There abdominalsolutely are a variety of fstars
(grinding both hardware henceftware) involved in lowering the correlated with
time it takes for Windows to load. I will go over most of these ways in this
page stair-conting with changes in the system BIOS and moving onward from
there.



All of these changes are optional,My. and donit need to be carried out.
Instead, they are offered as suggestions to try to lower the time it takes
for Windows to trainer. Some of these changes are very refined and will only
be attempted if you are snug with making the changes and have your data
insured.

System BIOS Changes



One of the first plstars to help speed trainer time in Windows is to make
some simple changes to the system BIOS.Windows XP Startup Trouble. The BIOS
or Basic Input/Output System is a couple of instructions and commands built
in the mothersnowboard that probin position the computer to know what type
of hardware is connected and also the way to communicate with that
hardware.Laptop. Youill first have to gain regarding the BIOS setup screen
to make any changes. Do not make changes to the system settings in the BIOS
lightly, one mistake can render the computer untrainerin position and cause
more problems than its worth. For this reason,my. do not attempt making
changes to the system BIOS unless you are willing to air-concept the risk
along with it. With that said,To. youill want to follow the directions below
come up with some simple changes to speed up the trainer process.Shutting.



1) You must stair-cont with the computer completely off, not in sleep or
hibernation mode. Then turn the computer on.



2) Enter the system BIOS screen by the manufair-conturers suggestion.
Depending on the computer,My Toshiba Laptop Won't Boot up. this may involve
pressing the DEL key, pressing F1,Shutting. Pressing F10, holding down
CTRL-ALT-S, or a variety of other keystrokes to get to the BIOS screen. For
an increasingly complete list of keystrokes to enter the BIOS screen,help.

3) Once in the BIOS setup, look for a BOOT menu and choose it with your
keysnowboard arrow keys,Disk Boot Failure Problem. Tabdominal,Me. and Enter.

4) In most modern BIOS screens, youill find a choice for Quick Boot. Enin
position this to skip memory tests along with minor Power On Self Tests
(POST).off.



5) Find a choice for Boot Device Priority next, and change the first trainer
device to be the hard drive. Changing this option will speed up the trainer
process, it will will also not encourage the computer to trainer from a floppy
disk or CD-ROM.on. If trainering from anything other than the hard drive is
important to you, pleautomotive service engineers skip this step. If later
on, you need to trainer from a CD-ROM,Help. simply re-enter the BIOS setup
come up with the CD-ROM the first trainer device.



6) Choose the option to Exit and Save Changes and also the computer will
retrainer.



There are other options in the BIOS to speed up trainer time such as choosing
the exair-cont settings for your hard drive, and disabdominalling AUTO DETECT
of hard drives along with media.a. However I i am skipping those changes and
leavi formatng them for a later discussion.

How To Dual Boot A Pc?_9455Computer Help_My Laptop Keeps Shutting off on Me

,Look out for the Toshiba A665! Gone is the day of one computer that satisfies
the needs of everyone in a household. Our computers and cell phones are so
highly individualized that each person's equipment contains their own
specific identity and preferences. This type of trend has many people looking
to replace their desktops with something smaller and easier to transport. A
great choice for this migration is the Toshiba a665. This notebook appears
to be a great mobile HD entertainment system while also producing a powerhouse
array of features at a very nice price.This laptop sports a 16 inch
screen. The resolution is 1366 x 768 and is HD Trubrite. Many prefer the
17 inch screen but the anti-glare properties tend to over-ride the benefits
of a larger screen. The processor is 2.40ghz Intel Core i5-450m dual
core. The SATA hard drive is 320gb which is certainly adequate for most
people though many times people won't consider anything less than 500. It
has 4gb (expandable to 8) of RAM and 512mb of video memory. It is programmed
with a nice variety of software and the media controller simplifies the
ability to share files with a drag and drop interface.The wireless
capabilities of any computer are a vital factor in comparing notebooks. The
Toshiba a665-s6055 uses a 802.11n compatible router which is as much as five
times the speed and twice the range as 802.11g networks. A very unique
feature of this notebook is the Sleep and Music that allows you to listen
to your music without having to boot the entire system. Your music is
enhanced with Harman Kardon stereo speakers and Dolby advanced audio. The
surround sound and blended suite of technologies takes gaming and music to
a whole new dimension.The Toshiba a665 comes pre-installed with Microsoft
Windows 7 Home Premium. Most people will be pleased with all the new features
and enhancements that Windows 7 offers. Others moving from a desktop with
a Vista or XP system still installed will deal with a bit of a learning curve
until they get comfortable with all the changes. The finish is called Fusion
X2. It's a glossed matte surface that is stylish and said to be less prone
to fingerprints. Some people find it to look quite nice but don't see any
great improvement in the smudges and smears. Overall the Toshiba A665
provides value for the price. Great for gifts or even for you.,,Computer locks
up frequently? You may have experienced your computer locking up when you
try to open IE, Firefox, My Computer or when you are playing games or working.
The mouse cannot move, programs and My Computer are not responding, the
keyboard won't type. That is a pain in the neck!Why does a computer lock up/
freeze up? How can I Fix it? If you want to fix it, you will need to find
out the causes of it.I researched for a long time and finally find out the
problem. It mainly results from registry errors. Registry is the most
important and fragile part in a Windows system. It contains the most important
settings and information of Windows. All the device drivers, system programs
and software depend on it. Now let me tell you how a program works with a
registry.When you start a program or software, Windows will need to load the
data (settings and information of the program) from the registry. The data
will tell Windows how to run this program and provide some information when
the program is running. Then the program can run successfully. But if the
data is invalid, missing or incorrect, the program or software will not be
run properly and causes the computer to lock up / freeze up. That is why when
you try to start a program or are running a program, your computer suddenly
locks up!To fix computer locking up problems, you need to repair and correct
the invalid, missing or incorrect data in the registry. You can use some repair
tool to fix it. And don't try to tweak any registry keys or values it in the
Registry Editor by yourself. That is very dangerous. A friend of mine tried
to do so, and his computer crashed down.,,One of the questions I am often
asked is how to speed up the time it takes Windows to load or boot. There
are a variety of factors (both hardware and software) involved in lowering
the amount of time it takes for Windows to load. I will go over most of these
ways in this page starting with changes in the system BIOS and moving onward
from there.All of these changes are optional, and do not need to be carried
out. Instead, they are offered as suggestions to try to lower the time it
takes for Windows to boot. Some of these changes are very advanced and should
only be attempted if you are comfortable with making the changes and have
your data backed up.,System BIOS ChangesOne of the first places to help speed
boot time in Windows is to make some simple changes to the system BIOS. The
BIOS or Basic Input/Output System is a set of instructions and commands built
into the motherboard that allows the computer to know what type of hardware
is connected and how to communicate with that hardware. You'll first have
to gain access to the BIOS setup screen to make any changes. Do not make changes
to the system settings in the BIOS lightly, one mistake can render the computer
unbootable and cause more problems than its worth. For this reason, do not
attempt making changes to the system BIOS unless you are willing to accept
the risk along with it. With that said, you'll want to follow the directions
below and make some simple changes to speed up the boot process.1) You must
start with the computer completely off, not in sleep or hibernation mode.
Then turn the computer on.2) Enter the system BIOS screen by the manufacturers
suggestion. Depending on the computer, this may involve pressing the DEL key,
pressing F1, Pressing F10, holding down CTRL-ALT-S, or a variety of other
keystrokes to get to the BIOS screen. For a more complete list of keystrokes
to enter the BIOS screen, visit Michael Steven's page on the subject.3) Once
in the BIOS setup, look for a BOOT menu and select it with your keyboard arrow
keys, Tab, and Enter.,4) In most modern BIOS screens, you'll find an option
for Quick Boot. Enable this to skip memory tests and other minor Power On
Self Tests (POST).5) Find an option for Boot Device Priority next, and change
the first boot device to be the hard drive. Changing this option will speed
up the boot process, but it will also not allow the computer to boot from
a floppy disk or CD-ROM. If booting from anything other than the hard drive
is important to you, please skip this step. If later on, you need to boot
from a CD-ROM, simply re-enter the BIOS setup and make the CD-ROM the first
boot device.6) Choose the option to Exit and Save Changes and the computer
will reboot.There are other options in the BIOS to speed up boot time such
as choosing the exact settings for your hard drive, and disabling AUTO DETECT
of hard drives and other media. However I am skipping those changes and leaving
them for a later discussion.Changes to Windows SettingsThe next group of
changes to consider will be to the many Windows settings. We will use a handy
tool called the System Configuration Utility to accomplish most of these
changes. Follow the steps below to open and use this tool.Startup Tab
Changes1) Click on Start, Run and type MSCONFIG and press Enter2) Click on
the STARTUP tab in the System Configuration Utility to view all the items
that begin on Startup. An example is shown below.Each item on the Startup
tab that is checked loads immediately after Windows starts. If there are lots
of items here, this will slow down the boot time for Windows considerably.
Each of these items can be toggled on or off simply by using the checkmark
box to the left of the item.The column directly to right of the checkmark
is the Name of the program, while the next column over is the location on
the hard drive or other device of the file. Finally the last column shows
where in the computer the file is started from. This location could be in
the registry as is the case with all the locations that begin with HKLM or
HKCU, or it could be in the Windows Startup folder found under ALL PROGRAMS
in Windows XP.You can examine each of these startup items and uncheck any
that are not necessary. How do you know which ones are not necessary? Well,
in most computer configurations, you'll want drivers running for your
graphics or video controller and sound card, and most likely an antivirus
and firewall running. Other startup items are usually extras that could be
eliminated from boot up. To discover what a particular item is used for, jot
down the name for the item and go over to a site called Process Library, type
in the name of the process and click Find. This is a very handy tool for
discovering which startup items are truly needed.When you are done modifying
the checkmarks to the Startup tab, click OK and you'll be asked to reboot
the system.Windows Services ChangesOnce the computer is rebooted, click on
Start, Run and type MSCONFIG and press Enter again. This will reopen the System
Configuration Utility. Click on the Services tab, then click on the option
at the bottom called "Hide All Microsoft Services" to see what unnecessary
Windows services are running that can be removed. Generally speaking, you
want services related to your video/sound cards and antivirus or firewall
programs left running. Other services may not be essential and can be removed.
Remember to only remove unessential services or you risk experiencing boot
problems. Use Google to search for information on unfamiliar
services.,Hardware Changes to Increase Boot TimeAdding more Memory
(RAM)Other than upgrading the motherboard and CPU, you can generally increase
the amount of RAM in your computer to make it load programs and applications
faster and provide a more enjoyable computing experience. You'll want to check
your motherboard to make sure you have available slots and the maximum amount
of RAM you can add to your particular motherboard.Replacing your Hard Drive
with a Faster RPM DriveIf you have a slower hard drive such as a 5400 RPM
or slower, you may want to consider upgrading to a faster 7200 RPM,hard drive.
The difference in RPM speed will generally be quite noticeable.Changing to
Static IPIf your computer is connected to a local area network that you control
and you have a DHCP server enabled on your router, during the boot process
the computer queries the network to valid IP address. You can shave seconds
off your boot time by assigning a valid IP address to your computer instead
of using DHCP to assign it. To setup a Static IP for your computer, follow
these directions.1) Click on Start, Run,2) Type NCPA.CPL and press Enter to
open the Network Connection Control Panel,3) Right-click on the Local Area
Connection and choose Properties,4) Click on Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and
click Properties,5) You should see a screen similar to the one below. Fill
in your static IP, subnet, default gateway, and DNS server information and
click OK. If you aren't sure of your IP ranges on your router, consult your
router manual or a friend that is more knowledgeable in networking
terminology. Again, this is an optional item and does not necessarily need
to be accomplished. Using DHCP is fine, although you sacrifice a few seconds
for an IP to be assigned to from the network.Switching from Master/Slave to

from your computer unless you know they are not needed. Fonts such as
Verdana,Arial,Trebuchet, Tahoma, Tahoma, Times New Roman, MS Sans Serif, and
Courier New should be left on your system. Follow the directions below to

backup folder,8) Return to the Fonts Folder and right-click on any fonts you
previously copied to the backup folder, then choose Delete.If you
accidentally removed a font, simply reverse the procedure by copying and
pasting the font back into the Windows\Fonts folder.Disk Cleanup, Scandisk,
