Hi guys, i have already posted several posts on computer tips and tricks here and also disscussed several problems. Now i am going to speak about “Most common problems and solutions”. Here you will find the solution for most of the common problems faced by people with there computer.

Note: All the information here is collected form various sites and forums.

1. I can’t see Hidden files/folders in my computer. Even I enable the option “Show hidden files/folders” in “Tools -> Folder Options”, its automatically disabled again.

Solution1: Go to your Start menu, click on Run and open up your Registry Editor by typing “regedit” without the quotes and pressing OK.

Once there go to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionExplorerAdvancedFolde rHiddenSHOWALL

Delete the value CheckedValue. (Its type should be REG_SZ and data should be 0 or 1.)

Create a new DWORD value called CheckedValue (same as above, except that the type is REG_DWORD) by right clicking on the right pane->New->DWORD Value. Modify the value data to 1 (0x00000001).
Solution 2: Open regedit and goto:
HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionExplorerAdvanced
In right-side pane, change value of “Hidden” to as following:

1 – To show hidden file
2 – To not show hidden files

If it doesn’t work, then scan your computer with an anti-virus software.


2. Task Manager Disabled:

To resolve the problem, type these commands from Start, Run dialog:

5. Force windows XP to reboot upon crashing:

This registry edit will cause your system to reboot itself automatically upon crashing. This can be useful if you have a reason for keeping your system on 24/7:


Open REGEDIT

Navigate to ‘HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEM
CurrentControlSetControlCrashControl’

Edit the ‘AutoReboot’ value to ‘1’


6. Stand By Icon Disabled:

Problem:
I reinstalled my windows and now “Stand By” option is Grey out in shutdown dialog box and I can’t use it.

Sol: Install VGA drivers from your motherboard CD and the option will be enabled. If you don’t have the motherboard CD, then go to the manufacturer site and download the required drivers.

7. Improving the Slow Boot up time:

There are a variety of reasons why your windows XP system would boot slowly. Most of the times it this has to do with the startup applications. If you would like to speed up the bootup sequence, consider removing some of the startup applications that you do not need. Easiest way to remove startup apps is through System Configuration Utility. Go to Start then Run and enter MSCONFIG and go to the Startup tab. Deselect/UnCheck application(s) that you do not want to startup at boot time.


8. Regedit Disabled By Admin:

Open Notepad pad, copy paste the following text to the note pad::

REGEDIT4
[HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersio
nPoliciesSystem]
“DisableRegistryTools”=dword:00000000

Save the text file as any name u with extension .reg
