You will find this key on the packaging that your Windows CD came in. The keys are not interchangeable. Hope this helps.

I haven't used Vista, but I have used XP, 7 and 8, but you should be able to go to add/remove programs and remove Outlook.

Good luck.

You will have to purchase it. You can either buy a physical copy or download it from Microsoft.

This means that the hard drive is corrupted such that the Windows Recovery tools can't solve the problem. You may have lost the MBR or the partition table.

The PASS means that there are no bad sectors. However, it doesn't check for bad files. If the problem is in the MBR, you will need a Windows OS install or upgrade disk for your OS (x32 or x64) or a recovery disk. Some members of a Windows Users group may have spare copies of the install disks. Alternatively, a third-party partiton management recovery disk may work. I hope you have a recent backup though since restoring from the backup may be needed.

If the problem is with the MBR, press F12 repeatedly on powering up the computer. Select the CD/DVD drive from the list (This is the one-time boot option. If you miss the timing, power down and retry.) With a Windows CD/DVD, follow the on-screen prompts to access the disk and choose Repair your computer. (This option is in smaller text below the Install now button.) Select the command prompt option. From here: type in "bootrec.exe /ScanOs" (without the quotes) and press enter. If any Windows installs are found, you are good to continue. The command, bootrec.exe /RebuildBcd , may be sufficient. If it isn't, use the bootrec.exe /FixMbr and bootrec.exe /FixBoot commands after rebuilding the BCD file. (Press enter between each set of commands.) Try starting the computer and create a new backup soon if it works. For other partition tools, follow their directions for MBR repairs.

If bootrec.exe /ScanOs doesn't find any Windows installations, try accessing other drive letters until you find your Windows OS. (For example, type C: or D: and press enter. Then type dir and enter.) If you have access to another computer, pull the drive and use a hard drive dock or USB to hard drive adapter to check the disk out elsewhere. I recently had a drive that reported having a RAW format with most tools. In my case, I was able to use a specific recovery tool, TestDisk for Windows, to salvage a few files that were newer than the last backup. Sometimes, this tool will be able to recover the partition table. (Use this tool with extreme care, it may render any original hidden backup partition unusable.) There are other disk recovery tools out there; some may work. You may want to run additional disk health tests while at this second machine.

If the system is faulty but the drive is otherwise healthy, restore using your last backup or the Dell Backup and Restore Utility. The Utility may be in that list of options after you press F8. (Note: the Dell Backup and Restore will return the system to the factory settings. Since the system started with XP and the above header indicates the Vista OS, there may not be a recovery partition available. Similarly, if you upgraded the hard drive, the recovery partition might not be usable.) Follow the directions from your manual/on-screen. If your backups are on CD/DVD or you have a recovery disk, use the F12 process to access the backup.

I will admit that with the recent drive I just fixed, the restore from the back up left a problem. This system was a Win8.1 drive and ended up with a MFT mirror issue. I solved this with the chkdsk c: /offlinescanandfix command on the next restart. (This is a switch option only available with newer Windows systems and the NTFS file system. The usual command would be chkdsk c: /f /r /x .)

I hope this helps.

is it a male or female mouse? "does it have a light or a ball"

To fix a ball type mouse
Remove the ball and clean the rollers with a pencil eraser

The light type mouse sticking is usually caused due to high CPU usage. To check this right click on the task bar and click start task manager. Then click performance. if your CPU is at 100% then that is why it is sticking.
I would start with a malware scan

Can you provide more details on this issue? What dialog box where? Or do you mean your computer doesn't recognize the drive at all?

Microsoft... | Answered on Feb 28, 2015


Is it a zip or rar file? If it is you need to unpack it first. If its corrupted delete it and download another one from a different source.

To resolve this problem, replace the missing or corrupted Ntfs.sys file:
  1. Use the Windows Vista startup disks or the Windows Vista CD to restart your computer.
  2. When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to select the To repair a Windows Vista installation using Recovery Console, press R option.
  3. Type the number of the Windows installation that you want to access from the Recovery Console, and then press ENTER.
  4. Type the administrator password when you are prompted, and then press ENTER. If no administrator password exists, just press ENTER.
  5. At the command prompt, type the following commands (press ENTER after each command): cd \windows\system32\drivers

    ren ntfs.sys ntfs.oldNote This step renames the corrupted Ntfs.sys file to Ntfs.old. If the Ntfs.sys file is not found, the file is missing.
  6. At the command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER: copy cd:\i386\ntfs.sys drive:\windows\system32\driversWhere cd is the drive letter for the CD-ROM drive that contains the Windows Vista CD, and drive is the drive where you installed Windows Vista .
  7. Remove the Windows Vista CD from your CD-ROM drive, type quit at a command prompt, and then press ENTER to quit the Recovery Console.
  8. Restart the computer.

everything you connect to the net, needs to ret the data through one cable. If your connection is slow, you can't change anything. Special not when you try to do more than one thing at the time. Or if someone else in the house is using the same internet connection. Some connections can't made to go faster, because the cable can't carry more. Be aware if you want another provider, they offer up to ??? Mbit /s but never give you the max.
