I would really appreciate some guidance. I recently had a montherboard 'meltdown' (corroded a capacitor or something) on a 5 year old PC. I replaced the m/board, CPU, RAM & Graphics. Now running MS Windows XP SP2, Intel Core2 Duo CPU, 2 GB RAM (DDR2) & a Nvidia GEForce 8600GT.
When the 'meltdown' occured it also corrupted a number of valuable files which had been backed up at the time of a recent/prior Hard disk replacement. Unfortunately I moved them back to the new drive at this (prior) time, whereas I should have copied them back!!
Accordingly the last backup I have was made using Instant cd/dvd V6.5.
I have downloaded the latest version (8.0), and when using this to open the backup (on DVD), I encounter an error which reads:
'access violation at address 00000000. read of address 00000000'...can anyone guide me to correct this, or at least identify this?
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
