What are the prompts?

Thanks for the rsponse, however when I try to use the cd for recovery it goes to the screen where it asks for a password, I just hit enter and the it asks for a prompt to either reboot, or fxconfig and a whole list of other acronyms and I am simple lost. Do you think you can do a step by step outline ads to get through this?

Hello,

sorry for the late reply. I am not familiar with recovery console of the systemax, but i assume that all recovery disk are all the same.

can you show me a pic after you hit enter.

Do you know how to boot from cd? anyway booting from cd you can the information from your manual.

When using the the recovery disk, i think there are two option, either you retain the the original files only the windows system files will be deleted and restore and format the entire harddrive and refresh you system from first day you bought.

just insert your cd and boot your pc from cd rom and then you will be guided.

just tell me incase;

First you have to get administrator privileges (if you already do, Ignore this) but when starting up your computer get into recovery mode (Esc then F11, or whatever you have to do in the startup menu). If you have HP support on your computer, click the center panel and go into command prompt cmd prompt you cd to System32 folder on windows 7 (like C:\Windows\System32). you do that, then follow this order very carefully: copy cmd.exe cmd1.exe then rename sethc.exe sethc1.exe then rename cmd1.exe sethc.exe then get out of recovery mode, but typical people have NORMAL COMPUTERS. when you try to recover, hit cancel when asked about system restore. When the error message pops up, click on the details, open the text doc, and click save as. In that window, you browse to C:\Windows\System32 and basically do what you can do in the cmd prompt. copy cmd.exe, rename sethc.exe, then rename cmd.exe's copy to sethc.exe, then reboot normally. at the login screen, trigger sticky keys (hit shift many times) which brings up the command prompt. You can type explorer.exe in it to bring up SYSTEM's taskbar, which probably has internet explorer on it. That is the only browser that works on it. Warning: it may disappear randomly and make your computer slower. But SYSTEM has admin privs! do as you please. But to get your password changed, use the command prompt, type net user "USERNAME" * in order to reset your password. You are welcome.

Toshiba a215 bios password then prompted for hdd password space bar enter didnt work


BIOS passwords can be reset or removed in two ways:

1. using software 2. using hardware.

I would first try resetting or removing using software, here are two software apps to reset or retrieve BIOS passwords.

!BIOS - is a PC BIOS toolkit offering password removal/decrypt and BIOS settings modification/backup/restore.
You can download it here:
http://www.syschat.com/download120.html&act=down

CmosPwd - Cmos password recovery tools
http://majorgeeks.com/CmosPwd_d239.html

You will need to create a bootable Dos, or Linux or NT cd in order to run them.

Good Luck!

My dell 600 goes into the blue screen and Wont Load (Error mesg)


This is quite common, and easy to fix, I have included a link below to help you.
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/811014

Insert the Windows Recovery CD into the disk drive and reboot the computer.
Check the computer's boot order. This must be done from the BIOS set-up before boot begins. Pressing "F2" will start the BIOS set up on most PCs. (This is not always the case, and the boot screens will tell you which button will take you to the system set-up.) Make sure that your CD drive comes before your hard disk in the boot order.
Select the drive with the Windows installation you wish to repair when you see the menu to select a hard disk drives. If you have mistakenly swapped a Windows Installation CD for the recovery disk, enter the automated system recovery and place the recovery disk in the drive when prompted to do so.
Select the drive that needs to be prepared. You will be asked for the administrator password. Enter the administrator account password if one has been set up.
Type "expand d:\i386\ntoskrnl.ex_ c:\windows\system32." Windows is not case sensitive, but you must spell the commands correctly. This copies the ntoskernel.exe file to the approrpriate directory.
Press "Y" when the program asks if you want to proceed.
Enter the exit command and the reboot the system. Take the CD out of the drive and Windows should load correctly.

I am in need to install recovery console


Here's How:
Boot From the Windows XP CD
ccb175b.jpg
To enter Recovery Console in Windows XP, you will need to boot from the Windows XP CD.
  1. Watch for a Press any key to boot from CD... message similar to the one shown above.

  2. Press a key to force the computer to boot from the Windows CD. If you do not press a key, your PC will continue to boot to the Windows XP installation that's currently installed on your hard drive. If this happens, simply reboot and try to boot to the Windows XP CD again.
Press R to Enter Recovery Console
0da5a15.jpg
When the Windows XP Professional/Home Setup screen appears, press R to enter Recovery Console.

Choose the Windows Installation
2ef066b.jpg
The Recovery Console is now loading but needs to know which Windows installation to access. Most users only have a single Windows XP installation so the choice is usually clear.
To the Which Windows installation would you like to log onto question, press 1 and then Enter.

Enter the Administrator Password
df4e182.jpg

The Recovery Console now needs to know the administrator password for this Windows XP installation. Unless you are using a PC in a sizable business network, the administrator password is most likely the same password you use to access Windows XP on a daily basis.
To the Type the Administrator password request, enter the password and press Enter.
Note: If you do not have a password or Windows XP normally starts without asking for one, simply press Enter.

Make Necessary Changes in Windows XP Recovery Console

dd45e92.jpg
The Recovery Console is now fully loaded and the cursor should be sitting at the command prompt, ready for input, as shown in the screen shot above.
Make any changes necessary in the Windows XP Recovery Console. When complete, take out the Windows XP CD and type exit to restart the computer.

  1. When you reach the command prompt (detailed in Step 6 in the link above), type the following command and then press Enter.
    bootcfg /rebuild
  2. The bootcfg utility will scan your hard drives for any Windows XP installations and then display the results. Follow the remaining steps to add your Windows XP installation to the boot.ini file.
  3. The first prompt asks Add installation to boot list? (Yes/No/All).
    Type Y in response to this question and press Enter.
  4. The next prompt asks you to Enter Load Identifier:.
    This is the name of the operating system. For example, type Windows XP Professional or Windows XP Home Edition and press Enter.
  5. The final prompt asks you to Enter OS Load options:.
    Type /Fastdetect here and press Enter.
  6. Take out the Windows XP CD, type exit and then press Enter to restart your PC.
    Assuming that a missing or corrupt boot.ini file was your only issue, Windows XP should now start normally.
