hi,

i posted a thread a little ago regarding my system shutting down merely seconds after turning it on. after much help from board regulars the problem sadly persisits.

i have installed HiJack, although each time i start it up to get a reading i get the following message:

An unexpected error has occurred at procedure: modMain_FixOther2Item(sItem=blah)
Error #5 - Invalid procedure call or argument

Please email me at [email protected], reporting the following:
* What you were doing when the error occurred
* How you can reproduce the error

Windows version: Windows 9x 4.90.3000
MSIE version: 6.0.2600.0000
HijackThis version: 1.97.1

This message has been copied to your clipboard.


despite this here is my latest reading, which still seems to work despite the error message:

it seems to happen after i have turned off my pc after a few hours use. i turn it back on and it just completely cuts out. i have to unplug it from the wall socket and play around with the start button. it seems to work if i press the start button and continually press the restart button. any ideas???????????

many thanks, john.

You have way too much running at Startup. Your computer prematurely shutting down like that is virus-like behavior or symptom of another serious problem - over-heating or improperly seated plug or Memory on your computers mainboard.

Check your available resources by right-clicking My Computer; clicking Properties; Click the Performance tab. Resources available are displayed as percent there at top. Check it when you get done running the System Configuration Utility mentioned below.

Click the Start button; Run; type 'msconfig', without the quotation marks, in the Run box and click OK; Then click the Startup tab; Uncheck anything you don't need running in the background. For reference on what's not needed running in the background in the System Configuration Utility, view this website first and print out the list:

http://www2.whidbey.net/djdenham/Running_items.htm

It's important that you print out the above mentioned list. The site provides a printer friendly link.

In the System Configuration Utility (SCU), you can uncheck programs you suspect one at a time and restart your computer. If something doesn't work right, you can always go back into the SCU and re-check it and restart your computer via the Start button. The changes are completely reversible by re-checking an item in SCU or by selecting Normal Startup under the General tab in the SCU and all the programs listed run when Windows starts as it was before you started.
