Cav i use e recovery outside windows to restore lost or corrupt sys32 driver files on my E4024 emachine p.c.?


If your recovery partition is intact, or made recovery CDs, then yes. The machine will be returned the state it was in when it left the factory. If you have a pre-owned computer, or else the computer was not originally purchased with Windows pre-installed, the recovery partition may have been damaged or destroyed in which case the procedure will be very much more complicated and difficult and perhaps expensive..
Be sure you have copied your data to another disk and have noted any downloads yo have made so that you can replicate what you want.
You might take this opportunity to test your hard drive for faukts.

Acer will have the procedure on their website, and here is another version:

I've tried backing up my computer ...but I get a message everytime Error: back up failed. What can I do before my computer crashes?


Don't use the pre installed backup software, just grab an external HDD or a second internal HDD and do it manually.

My computer crashed so I installed windows xp. The USB ports don't work and neither does the DVD drive


It sounds like you have not installed the chipset driver. Find your cd that came with the pc and install the chipset driver or go on line and download the latest driver.

Can I do a memory upgrade on Sony VGC -LS 37E?


the specs for your computer, it states that it is equipped with 2gb of memory 2x1gb and max at 2gb, so I doubt that any higher memory upgrade installed would work, or else it would cause your system to crash or even damage it.

Crashed hard drive


Seagate File Recovery for Windows is one of the best programs I've used. I had an external drive that was totally invisible to Windows until I popped it with this stuff and was able to retrieve everything on the drive within minutes. The stuff costs $129 but is well worth it. You should download the free trial just to see if it will access your data after which you can decide if it's worth the purchase price to recover everything...

Slow Dell computer 4600


Normally computers get slow for the following reasons.
1) Infected with malware/viruses. Run free programs available from (CNET) www.download.com. These include MalwareBytes, SPybot Search and Destroy, Adaware.
2) Computer hard drive is full or seriously fragmented. Try removing unneeded programs (especially pictures) and then attempt a defragmentation.
3) Hard disk failing or getting old. Sometimes this is due to environment. Smoky, dirty or dusty environments will eventually contribute to build up of heat inside the computer and excessive heat kills computers. Also hard drives are mechanical and they do wear out over time. Laptop drives take more abuse because they are moved around more than desktops. If they start getting noisy then it is time to prepare to replace it. If you haven't done it yet GET YOUR IMPORTANT DATA OFF NOW!!!!
4) Overclocked or over heated processors. Dust buildup in the cooling fans and heat sinks can cause the temperature to rise and when processors get heated up they slow down and evenyually crash.
5) Running out of memory. As our computers get older we keep adding programs and eventually (if we dont upgrade the memory) the computer runs out of memory.
So if I were in your shoes I would do the following:
1) run some of the malware removal programs I suggested (if your hard drive has the available space for them) and also run your anti-virus program.
2) Remove unneeded files from the hard drive and then run the disk defragmentation tool. I once had a customer that had jammed her hard drive full of pictures and when it crashed it had no room to rebuild itself.
3) if all that does not improve the speed then see about getting an upgrade for the memory.

Slow system, hard disk problem?


First off, get any important data off NOW. If it took 48 hours for disk check to run AND it found bad clusters your hard drive is on it's way out. Consider yourself lucky that you are getting an early warning sign. Normally computers get slow for the following reasons.
1) Infected with malware/viruses. Run free programs available from (CNET) www.download.com. These include MalwareBytes, SPybot Search and Destroy, Adaware.
2) Computer hard drive is full or seriously fragmented. Try removing unneeded programs (especially pictures) and then attempt a defragmentation.

So if I were in your shoes I would do the following:
1) make sure you have any important files copied off of that hard drive. You never know when it may crash so get them off now.
2) run some of the malware removal programs I suggested (if your hard drive has the available space for them) and also run your anti-virus program.

COMPUTER CRASHED?


See if you can get to safe mode. Write back to see if you can, and we will give you instructions on how to proceed from there.

Otherwise you will need a restore or winxp OS installation disk.

Windows pre installed on partition function F5 on reboot allowed me to delete hard drive and reinstall a fresh copy of windows from the hidden partion. Unfortunately this no longer works and I need to know...


Hi,
Normally, for these kind of pre-installed PCs, the company will supply a few CDs/ DVDs called Recovery CDs / DVDs.

Insert the first one of them (written as bootable) into the CD /DVD drive and reboot the system. You may have to change the boot priority thro bios for this. (for this ... get into ur bios by pressing F2 / Del while booting...see for 'First Boot Device' and set it to CD/DVD)

Sometimes, the PC may allow you for some extra options for F10 / F12 keys during booting to display a menu to select boot device.

Here select the CD / DVD as boot device and run the recovery utility to restore the hidden partition and default OS.

Then play with the PC as you wish with the new OS installations

I hope this will solve your problem

bye

have a nice time

For my pc's booting problem


santanu You should try selecting "LAST KNOWN GOOD CONFIGURATION". While this kernal error prevents your machine from booting I am 90% sure your "data" is safe. There are many trouble shooting processes we can try to get the machine running,"maybe",but saving your data first is paramount. This error has been a pre-cursor to failing hard drives. As long as the hard drive doesn't fully crash you(or someone)can retrieve the data. You may want to take it in to your local technician. I am not sure how comfortable you are working with the hard drive. ..but you could remove it hook it to another machine via usb swappable drive(w/40 pin adapter), you should be able to see your data and copy. You may want to purchase a new drive for the laptop,(assuming it is only the hard drive) reload the OS and then try the above. If you don't feel comfortable doing this or don't fully understand "CONTACT A PROFESSIONAL" Good Luck, Tim
