Tip & How-To about HP Pavilion a1410n (ER890AA) PC Desktop

Fixing Corrupt Registry

If your registry has gotten corrupted, and re-installing Windows95 over your existing version does not fix the problem,
there is a hidden, read-only, system file on the root of your boot drive called SYSTEM.1ST.
This is the initial system registry created when you first installed Windows95.
To use this file:

Go to your Windows directory
Un-Attrib your current SYSTEM.DAT file (attrib -r -s -h system.dat)
Copy your current SYSTEM.DAT to something like SYSTEM.BAD file (just in case)
Move to your root directory
Un-Attrib the SYSTEM.1ST file
Copy SYSTEM.1ST to \WINDOWS\SYSTEM.DAT
Re-start your system
You will need to install your 32-bit apps and any other programs or changes that modified your system registry
but you will not need to go through a new again. Your 16-bit apps should not need to be re-installed since they do
not modify the registry. You will also retain your current desktop configuration.

Unable to play bejeweled blitz on facebook recently. Any suggestions?


Appears the problem with bejeweled blitz on facebook has nothing to do with the users: the creators made som major changes last week, since then the game has not been working as it should. So dont waste your time on it, dont play - wait till they fix it or play another game.

epair Active-X, Flash and Other Registry Errors: There occurs a lot of errors in the Windows registry which is a database containing hundreds of thousands of registry entries required to run programs properly. Most of the times the games crash in Facebook because of the problems with the Flash player. It is recommended to repair active-x, flash and other registry errors with some efficient registry repairing tool. Flash Player Compatibility: Sometimes users are not aware that they are running that version of Shockwave Flash player which is not compatible with their Windows/Browsers. It has been found of great help to completely remove the existing version of the player and then install the newest version.
You can read the Adobe's official guide to uninstall the current version of the Flash player from your computer. After doing this you should install the latest Flash player plug-in from the Adobe's web site. However, if you have already tried it you may install some previous version such as their version 9 to check if your games and videos running fine in the browser.
Updating the Sound Drivers: It is also observed that a lot of Facebook games crash were occurring due to the corrupted or missing sound drivers in the PCs. It is not a bad idea to update the drivers for the sound card device.
Wondering why Facebook games crash in your system? Want to quickly fix this problem? Here is one tested tool specially designed to fix active-x, registry and Flash related errors. Download it directly here: http://www.filetransit.com/download.php?id=79029

not able to restore my registry settings...


Hi,
try re-installing windows over the top of your existing operating system.
If you get a prompt during setup, stating that you already have files. tick leave intact. or similar.
this can sometimes remedy faults, as windows will only replace missing-deleted or corrupt files on the hard drive.
Your other option, is to obtain disk partioning software and setup a seperate partion on the drive, install the operating system here, so that you can access the first partion.
just out of curiosity, did you go to Tools/folder options/View and tick the show hidden files And Folders checkbox ?
