Hello,

I am having trouble when I turn on the computer, it won't go on. I have to try 20 times before it will go on. Would it be possible if there was a virus and my antivirus doesn't detect it? or would it be another problem? I have used my AVG Anti-Virus, Trend Micro, & Norton Antivirus. I do check for Window's Update also.

I am also have trouble playing a CD, when I stick the CD in there it makes this funny noise.

<_< HELP please :D

What does it do when you first start it? Do you get a Windows loading screen? Anything on the screen?

Well after the 20th time trying to turn the computer on it starts out normal, but it's like if it was a low battery or something...just yesterday I have noticed that you know where you just click the other button to restart your computer there is a light above it, that it's not bright red like it used to be....do you think that could be the problem or that's just nothing?
when I try to turn the computer on it doesn't even go on, I usually have to keep turning off and on in the back and keep trying the button in the front before I can turn it on.

Sounds like you may be losing your power supply. Eventually, it'll probably refuse to start. Depending on how you feel about opening your case, it may be something you can replace yourself.

Replacing a power supply isn't too hard, but it does require removing a number of wires plugged into your components, and replacing them exactly as they were. You may want to consider bringing you computer to a shop, or getting some assistance.

thank you for the help....i guess i should bring it in to a technician or something... a while back i did download a program called "NoAdware2.01" and when i scanned it, this is what came up

Parasite: Danger:

Kazaa Severe
KeenValue Severe
TROJ/AGENT.BM Dangerous
KeenValue Severe
W.32.Lovgate.AD@mm Severe
Kazaa Severe
unknown malware Dangerous
Slagent Dangerous

Do you think that I should buy the program? or is that nothing that I have to worry about? :D

I have also noticed that behind the tower where i think the power supply is, isn't that fan suppose to be going? becuase I dont hear it going or anything....
the weird thing was though that everytime i did run "MicroTrend" online and it would always would say "run avg antivirus" becuase it said i had a virus. And when I did run AVG there was nothing and than when I did norton antivirus online also nothing came up. <_<
yeah, i think i should just bring it in to a technician and have them fix my computer.

No. Do not buy the program. If you're infected, we can help you. However, those programs also produce "false positives" in an effort to persuade you that their program is needed.

I have also noticed that behind the tower where i think the power supply is, isn't that fan suppose to be going?

Yes, that fan should run whenever your system's power is on. That just confirms that a new power supply is likely needed.

I ran a On-line Anti-virus, I tried a different one called "RAV Antivirus" and there was 7 files that said it was suspicious. I will just paste it on here to show what came up....

C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\hqgoga.exe->(UPXW) - TrojanDownloader:Win32/WinShow.Z -> Suspicious
C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\irrvsdzj.exe->(UPXW) - TrojanDownloader:Win32/WinShow.Z -> Suspicious
C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\qa.exe->(UPXW) - TrojanDownloader:Win32/WinShow.Z -> Suspicious
C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\vlysma.exe->(UPXW) - TrojanDownloader:Win32/WinShow.Z -> Suspicious
C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\xvtmqbyb.exe->(UPXW) - TrojanDownloader:Win32/WinShow.Z -> Suspicious
C:\WINNT\Downloaded Program Files\hqgoga.exe->(UPXW) - TrojanDownloader:Win32/WinShow.Z -> Suspicious
C:\WINNT\Downloaded Program Files\xvtmqbyb.exe->(UPXW) - TrojanDownloader:Win32/WinShow.Z -> Suspicious

Let us take a closer look at what is running on your PC. We'll need you to use a free diagnostic tool (HiJackThis) and post a log back here with the results.

Click the HijackThis Guide in my signature, download it and follow the instructions in the guide.

Most of what it lists will be harmless or even essential, DO NOT delete or modify anything yet! Someone will be along to tell you what steps to take after you post the contents of the scan results.

There's no sign of infection. Must be a false positive -- you're all clear! <_<

There's no sign of active infections, but it wouldn't hurt to search for these files and delete them:
C:Docume~/ADMIN~1.ADM/LOCALS~1/Temp/V79C3ea01200
C:\WINNT\system32\owfaxuiw.exe
