I got some pretty bad computer problems

Recommended Posts

So here is whats happening, my computer's Mouse and Keyboard do not work on start up, or anything else plugged into the USB ports. All the lights seems fine upon actually starting the computer, but once I get into Windows, my lights go out leaving me hopeless. I cannot get into safe mode due to it being stuck on mup.sys, which probably means there is a corrupted system file. Also when I'm on my desktop it gives me a pop up message about something having to do with a registry file. I'm completely hopeless! I do not have the Windows XP cd and I need some files in this computer, they are very important files. :)

Hmm Proslasher or Kenshyn usually know a lot about this stuff, have you tried any tech supports? Try looking up the Pop-Up message.

Try resetting your CMOS, it usually solves many weird computer quirks I run into. Sometimes it's what is known as the "easy" button O.O

^_^ wow you guys... your hopless....

 

I would say the Easyest thing you can do is simply reinstall the windows operating system and HOPE it works there are no garantee's unless you actually reformat but as you said you cant reformat because there are valueable files. etc. I would suggest that you buy or if you want to torrent a copy of Windows XP and a program called Power ISO, it will let you burn the ISO you downloaded to a cd so you can reinstall windows. Hope this works

You could have a virus or Windows could be corrupted. I have had the strange "USB" problem before but a simple restart did it for me.

If I'm pinging a website? That was a couple months ago. O.O, until I stopped it. The last thing I installed? Diablo 2. ^_^ And I do not use limewire.

you say every time you install a windows os you the blue screen of death correct? Does it just flash or does it stay? if it flashes you have to change your windows settings by pressing F8 while your bios is showing, then look around for something regarding windows not shutting down from errors (this will make it so when you get the blue screen of death your computer won't just turn itself off.) now from here you will look at the screen code the blue screen of death will give you, and compare it to This and that will tell you what is causing your blue screen of death.

 

 

Hope this helps

It doesn't flash, it stays. And even though I know what the cause is, there is not much I can do to fix it, my computer is like a giant brick. Thanks for your help Ruler, appreciate a lot bro.

No idea, but what I'm thinking about right now is to use a Live Windows XP CD add a utility to partition my drive (or splite my drive in two) so that I can install a new windows XP on that other half, and when I get in, I'll just move the files from the other half to the newer half, and thennn I'll delete the other half and merge it back to the newer half, so I can have one new drive. Well, thats my only other option so far unless people think otherwise, please say so. This method is a long and tedious process. :/
