    We have an Emachines T2825, windows XP, 1G memory.
    We installed Fix-It Utilities and were cleaning up the computer when we think we did something wrong.
    The computer crashed and shut down.
    When we re-start we get no monitor, and no sound.
    Tried a second monitor already, same thing, no recognitition.
    The computer appears to be ON, but nothing appears to boot-up.
    Any help available on this?

    I'm not familiar with that particular program, but if it has a registry cleaner included, it may have removed necessary registry entries.

    Do you have an image backup on an external hard drive or CDs/DVDs? Do you have recovery discs for the machine?

    I think this is more than a registry cleaner mess if you see no posting at all? Is that true you see nothing on the screen.

    Looks like your cleaning utility took you to the cleaners. :D


    All joking aside, something got deleted. that shouldn't have.

    You'll have to boot off the install disk (if you have one), into safe mode
    or recovery console, in order to fall back to a restore point. You should be
    able to get a BIOS screen by tapping Del during powerup.

    If not, then maybe your problem is coincidental to your cleaning
