WU Trouble

Post by JohnnnY » Mon Dec 13, 2004 7:42 pm

This one WU has been getting on my nerves lately, I believe its called p1412. After a while, if my cpu gets turned off the wrong way, the WU starts all over because my dumb parents are always shutting my computer off when its running. Is there a way to prevent the WU from resetting to 0? My cpu wasnt like this until recently.

Another way to fix that is to remove the human error :P

How exactly do they shut your computer off? Is it by pressing the power button? you ca ndisable that in the bios and in windows power options usually. If they use the start menu to shut it down, you can lock the computer when youre away from it so they cant access it.

Well, on the front, theres like a couple switches. One for the cpu, one for the monitor, one for the speakers, and one for all 3 called Master. What my parents do is, they flip off the Master switch, which turns off the cpu the wrong way, making me have to run for errors the next time I start it up because they're too dumb to click on Start-Shut Down. Hmm, how would I format my hard drive to NTFS? This crap happened again, this time my mouse froze and I couldnt shut the program.
