1) Installing drivers doesn't affect files, but reinstalling Windows will.

2) Make a BartPE CD (on another computer, of course). Boot from the CD. That'll give you Windows. Use it to back up any files you want backed up. (Back up to an external drive.)

It's a bit of work, but a very handy CD to have available. (You can do the same thing with a Linux Live CD if you have one.)

Tablet shut down in the middle resetting. How do I finish the reset process?


Cry. Seriously, remove the drive and copy off of it any and all files that you want and need. Then format the unit and reinstall the operating system and programs from the backup disks that you have. No backup?

Now you are really ******* - see if you can get set from notebook manufacturer. If not check with your computer literate friends to see if any of them have OS installation disks.

When the computer boots, it display bluescreen


To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc ora operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot fromit. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with whiteletters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice thepercentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run tocompletion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows.Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents,music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair whenthe options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recoveryconsole and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.If after running the Check Disk Utility you still have problems you will probably need to reinstall windows. Look into doing a Repair Install so that you don't lose your data.

Stack overflow at line 598


Stacks are reserved memory that programs use to process hardware events. A stack overflow occurs when there is not enough space in memory to run the hardware interrupt routines. To resolve these behaviors, you can modify the "STACKS=" line in the Config.sys file, eliminate terminate-and-stay-resident program (TSRs), and eliminate hardware conflicts.

When Windows delivers an error message that is related to an internal stack overflow, there is not enough space in memory either set aside or available to handle the calls that are made to the computer hardware. There are several things to consider when you troubleshoot this behavior:
  1. The Config.sys startup file may not be properly configured for the Windows installation. Use the following values: STACKS=64,512 ;(this is the maximum allowed)
    FILES=60
    BUFFERS=40 If you are using the dual-boot capabilities in Windows, the Config.sys and Autoexec.bat files may not contain the correct configuration to run Windows. When you are dual-booting between Windows 3.x and Windows, these files may not have been renamed back to Config.dos and Autoexec.dos.

    Examine the Config.sys file to determine if files such as Himem.sys or Emm386.exe are loaded from a folder other than the Windows folder. If so, boot Windows by using the Safe Mode Command Prompt Only option. Rename the Config.sys file to Config.dos and the Autoexec.bat file to Autoexec.dos, and then restart your computer.
  2. Some TSRs may be interfering with Windows. Disable any non-boot device drivers in the Config.sys and Autoexec.bat files. If you install from Windows 3.x and you receive a stack overflow error message, check the Win.ini and System.ini files for non-Windows-based programs or drivers that are loading.
  3. There may be an incompatible hardware configuration. Check the port and IRQ settings of the network adapter, sound card, and modem. Make sure that there are no COM2/COM4 or COM1/COM3 conflicts and that no devices are sharing IRQs. Disable or remove conflicting devices.
  4. The computer may need a BIOS upgrade. Check the BIOS version and contact the manufacturer of your computer for information about a BIOS upgrade.

Hope this helps. Please rate my response.
Thanks.
Have a good day

Simple test to determine if it's a hardware or software problem : try to boot in the BIOS. If you can't then it's hardware you should just return it, it's still in the warranty. If you can then Windows is totally corrupted so just reinstall it.

Toshiba Laptop A55-S306 shuts down with error messages


It sounds to me like a virus. Boot up from a recover cd or windows cd and reinstall freashly.

If you don't have a recovery cd, contact Toshiba for one. They go around for $40 to $50. If you can't get one, buy Windows Vista and boot up from that and reinstall.

» Uninstall Existing Dell™ Printer Drivers
Before reinstalling any printer drivers, it is necessary to remove any printer drivers that were previously installed. Not doing so can cause problems that prevent the computer from communicating with the printer. To uninstall previous printer drivers:

  2. Disconnect the USB cable from the back of your Dell printer, click the Start button, point to All Programs, point to Dell™ Printers and then point to the listing of your Dell printer and then click the Uninstall Dell Printer icon.
  3. When the Dell Printer Uninstall confirmation window appears, click Yes. This process may take several minutes to complete. Do not attempt to power off the computer at this time.
  4. When the Dell Printer Uninstallation window appears (Figure 1), click to select the Yes, I want to restart my computer right now (recommended) option, then click OK. (The system automatically shuts down and restarts.)

    After the system restarts, the printer uninstallation process is complete.
