    I tried the Repair Computer Command it tried for approx 45 seconds gave up. Said PC is unrepairable.So I had to look for other options. Like a Windows Recovery Disk.

Nope it will allow the computer to fix itself not data loss at all. I've had to do this many times before. just try it and tell me your situation when you are done.

When i switch on my acer aspire one notebook, its automatic reboot several time when it gets to the acer starting screen, i cant log on to windows. it just keep reboot again and again. what is the problem?


what were you doing last time you used pc?

did you change or permit an app to change any setting or install or upgrade a app?

your pc is in a boot loop caused by an incompatible registry program installation

suspect an app or upgrade not compatible to your hardware or os version or you did not install a needed os fix

can do a step boot to see where the boot is failing then bypass it on next step boot
then edit start up or registry to remove faulty step (be cautious!)

need to boot in safe mode & restore a previous state

or restore your installation from a bu or original - you will lose some data not saved

My DVD writer is not working.my laptop configuration is Compaq 6720s core 2 duo and have windows 2005 xp. may i get any solution??


I can't guarantee this a solid solution, but it will solve many Windows issues. If your DVD Writer worked very recently, sometimes an update by (or installation of) another program other than a MS or Windows one can disrupt the registry settings for DVD writing.

1. Download Ccleaner Free File & Registry cleaner and run the cleaner and registry tools (seen on the left of the program window as icons with titles)

2. Reboot

3. Go to this link and run this Microsoft Auto Repair tool for DVDs.

http://support.microsoft.com/gp/cd_dvd_drive_problems

If your issue is not solved after that, go to the device manager and try updating the DVD driver. While you're there, jot down the exact name of your DVD drive so you can check further on online blogs dealing with your exact laptop and its problem.

Best Wishes

4. Expand the "SYSTEM" Key
5. Expand the "CurrentControlSet" Key

I've seen this often with XP and Vista. I'm posting the Microsoft instructions. Although this isn't always the cure, it is most of the time. Good Luck

Cannot get out of Configurating updates: stage 3 of 3 screen


This is all I could find:


It's not only Windows Vista Service Pack 1 that isn't ready for general consumer availability. Some of the updates released on February 12, 2008, as a part of the Microsoft monthly patch cycle, have managed to effectively kill Windows Vista. Users are reporting that, following the introduction of the February 12 updates, Vista gets stuck at the finalization of the deployment of the updates displaying the message "Configuring Updates Stage 3 of 3 0% completes" and then entering
an infinite reboot loop. And there is absolutely no way out for the end users, because canceling the configuration process of the updates is a move equivalent to losing access to the operating system entirely. This will even happen in Safe Mode.

Microsoft has yet to officially respond to the issue, or to provide a resolve or at least a workaround. However, it does seem at this point that there is an issue with the deployment of the pre-requisite updates necessary for the smooth installation of Windows Vista SP1. Namely, the problem resides in the Vista installation software. The fact of the matter is that end users will have to first update the Vista installation software and only then deploy the remaining February 12 updates and only at the end Vista SP1 RTM.

If you are stuck watching the "Configuring Updates Stage 3 of 3 0% complete Do not turn off Computer" and in the endless reboot loop, then stop the cycle and boot from the Vista media. You will need to "Repair your computer," so select your Vista installation and restore it to a point before the deployment of the updates. After gaining back access to your operating system, you will have to install the service stack update, namely Update for Windows Vista (KB937287). Deploy this update before any other on your Vista, and only then install the rest. At this point in time, you should experience no more problems.

"Update 937287 is a prerequisite package that contains updates to the Windows Vista installation software. The installation software is the component that handles the installation and the removal of software updates, language packs, optional Windows features, and service packs. Update 937287 is necessary to successfully install and to remove Windows Vista SP1 on all versions of Windows Vista," Microsoft revealed.

Ati2dvag caught in a loop


These kind of problems can be caused by a number of different things, from software to dodgy ram, PSU etc etc. I'll assume you've already done a virus and adware scan-if not, do it now. If that doesn't work, let's start with the easiest to diagnose and fix-the device driver itself. Download the latest version of the Ati catalyst driver from Ati. Uninstall the existing driver(Assuming you're using Windows XP, Start>Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs, then find the Ati graphics driver on the list and remove it), remove the grapics cards entries from Device Manager(Start>Control Panel>System>Hardware>Device Manager, then click the cross next to "Display Adaptors", right click and choose "uninstall"), and reboot into safe mode (tap F8 at POST screen). Run drivercleaner in safe mode (you can download it from here): http://www.driverheavendownloads.net/ then reboot, cancel the "Found New Hardware Wizard" which pops up when you restart windows, and run the new driver installation program.
