Re: Does your computer restarts a lot?

My desktop is doing great now, it turns out that the program crashed.

I fixed it, only thing wrong with it is that it won't play Midi files

Re: Does your computer restarts a lot?

OMG, thats really bad if you have to manually shut it down... thats the time to upgrade lol!

Well now children, here are some handy tips in maintaining your hardware, easy really!

1. Clean the back of the PC, build up of dust stops air flow, hence computer over heating.
2. Ideally do a reboot once a week for those of us who leave our pc's on all the time.
3. Run a Disc Clean and Defrag once a month or more. You can find these tools in properties on C drive. Don't worry, it will not distroy any data, just put it in order, think of it as maintaining a library.
4. Last of all, if your PC is older than 3 years old, you could think of upgrading or just expect to have problems.

Ok now children, thats all from me today!

Whoa I don't do most of those rules. I'm make sure I follow them, of course I kinda want a new computer...just for my Sims alone.

OMG Kat, we have so much in common! <3















With our computers, that is!

My computer used to restart a lot on its own, some time ago.

I discovered it was my webcam that was causing this to happen.

I got a new one and uninstalled the 1st one!

I still have it, but I don't use it. Maybe for a new computer that I might get. *hintforbirthdaygiftfromsomeonefromhere*

Re: Does your computer restarts a lot?

I have a web cam too, but I don't use it.

I'm scared my computer might crash again if I install it.

Re: Does your computer restarts a lot?

Meh, I got a crappy $60 webcam, doesn't have sound so I have a separate microphone, but it kind of switches from time to time, like it'll work in msn and won't work in Skype and vise versa, its annoying lol! Looking forward to upgrading this comp! It's so slow and the dial up doesn't help either! :-(
