blue screen

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,

So, what is the cloud?

Today, we are going to be talking about what the Cloud is and what companies  offer free storage. We will only cover a few.

First off, we find that there are different ways to store our stuff, maybe, a bigger hard drive, using DVDS or CD‘s. If you have an email account, have Facebook, storing pictures on say, Flickr, than you are probably using some type of Cloud storage So, where is the cloud anyway. Well it is found on the internet stored on servers.

It is my understanding that Some of these servers are  Virtual machines. This is software that uses components of your computer. The same principle is used for those that use a Virtual Machine on their computer, it is the safe way, to run programs without damaging your computer, like when Beta testing different programs. There is a program known as Sand-boxing, my understanding it  enables the user to test a program, without harming the computer.

When looking for Storage You have several choice’s , however we are only going to cover four of them. These are Onedrive(formerly Skydrive from Microsoft), Dropbox, Google Drive, and iCloud (for Apple Users)Most do offer free limited storage, however, Google, seems to give you the most, around 15GB of Free storage.

Cloud Storage                                      Free

Drop box                                              2GB

one drive(formally Skydrive)                7GB

Google Drive                                       15GB

i Cloud                                                  5GB

I hope this helps those of you who maybe interested in loading your files in a Cloud Storage Service.
