lost windows games on 7


Awhile back I ordered a refurbished Dell Optiplex 390, after turning it on, I got to thinking about the games that usually come with the computer, mine was windows 7. I distinctively remember playing chess on that operating system, however, I was unable to find it anywhere. After doing some searching I was able to find the answer to my question and decided to share it with my readers who may have ended up with the same dilemma. 

 

 After locating the Start button, you want to click on the control panel, go to program and features. On the left side of the windows pane you should see turn on windows features on and off. Click on this,

Once the menu opens up you want to look for GAMES.

Click box next to GAMES,  

then click OK

 

Once this box from above disappears you will be able to play your games.

God Bless, Remember God gets the Glory!!!!

blue screen


5D261172-C090-49C6-A048-B5CFE843CCD6

Today we are going to be talking about how to get rid of a blue screen that a friend had encountered on his computer an, he was running Windows 7 on a  HP Pro book 4520.

below is the error:

A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer

If this is the first time you’ve seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again follow these steps:

check to be sure you have adequate disk space. If a driver is identified in the stop message, disable the driver or check with the Manufacturer for driver updates. Try changing video adapters.

Check with your hardware vendor for any BIOS updates. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use safe Mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer. Press F8 to select Advanced startup Options, and then select Safe Mode.

For technical support to this problem, call Windows help line: +1-855-4843589

technical information:

***stop: 0X0000001e(0XFFFFFFFFC00000094,OXFFFFFF800C07
4DIE,0X00000000000,0xFFFFFFFFFFD)

 

One of the computer programs I came across was  called PC Accurate Pro”  First thing I did was to   to remove PC accurate pro, since the blue screen is not going to allow this to be done, you have to go into what is called “Safe Mode with Networking” To get here you have to restart the computer, and hold down the F-8 key, once the computer has loaded, then you have to log into the Administrator account, go to Programs and Features on Windows 7.

After trying this and having no luck, the next step you might want to try is System Restore, to get here, under  the control panel, click recovery, Click Open system restore on the right side of the screen.

system-restore

click NEXT this will take you to another screen, which will give you a list of system restore points. Each restore point will cover a certain program,  in order to find out which programs will be affected, Microsoft has provided a tab where you can check this. Click the “scan for affected programs” Tab

last-system-report

 

Once you have decided which  restore point you want to use, click on that Restore point. 

system-point

click NEXT and click FINISH. This will start restoring your computer to that particular point.

 

I found that system restore was unsuccessful for me, so the next step was to check the computer’s Hard Drive. To get here, Go to  the start button,  CLICK on the COMPUTER tab, RIGHT CLICK on the hard disk Drives, this will open a menu then click on PROPERTIES.

hard-disk-drive

Once here click on the TOOLS tab

checking-hard-drive

 

Go to where you see ERROR CHECKING near the top of the Window,

error-checking

 

Click CHECK NOW, and this will open up a new menu.

check-disk-options

check the two boxes AUTOMATICALLY FIX FILE SYSTEM ERRORS and SCAN FOR AND ATTEMPT RECOVERY OF BAD SECTORS, Click Start button to continue( Make sure you only do this once a month, this is really rough on the hard drive)

schedule-disk-check

 

Here you schedule the disk check the next time you restart the computer.

Should this not work, the last step would be to go directly to the  HP Website, or which website pertains to your computer.

hp

To update the BIOS to the Motherboard,  you will normally type in the product name or number, the number that the manufacuter  is interested in what is called the service Tag.

Then look around the top of the webpapge, click on support, drivers and download, after clicking this, the page should show a list of current drivers for the Audio, one should be the Bioshp-4520-dowload-pageClick on this and download BIOS update, and you should be up and running.

 

God Bless,

today, we will be working on a hp probook 4520s laptop computer with windows 7,.

when a friend dropped off his computer, he said all that he was getting was a black screen, after doing some searches found some ways to fix this issue. So, when he clicked on the account, the screen would go black showing only the mouse cursor. First thing to do is restart the computer, and go to SafeMode.

To do this power down the computer, then power up the computer holding  down the F8 key. This key is along the top of the keys. When you do this you will see a black screen, with text, what the computer is doing is loading  certain drivers, at the top you will see the words “SafeMode” move down to where you see the words” Last good configuration (Advanced).

This should work you might have to do this a couple of times.

The next step is to Load Malware Bytes, I will provide a link below:

After this is done, your computer should be working normally, hope this helps.
