The programs need to be reinstalled as the entrys are removed from the registery. If you reinstall the programs into the same folders that they where installed to, that should restore them as they where or almost

    most programs store some settings and files on the C drive - Documents and Settings - username folder and as the c drive is gone, some setting files may be gone.

Hard disk making funny noise and netbook does not recognise boot device after automatic windows update and restart.


You either have an error with your hard disk or with the Windows partition files.

Some HP Mini Netbooks have a hard drive self-test feature. In order to check for a hard drive problem, turn on your computer and press the "F10" key during startup. This will open the Setup Utility. Use the arrow keys to navigate to the "Diagnostics" menu, then highlight "Hard Disk Self Test". Let the test run fully. If it reports an error(s), then you have a damaged/defective hard drive, and you will need to replace it by either contacting HP through their support site, or by replacing the drive yourself with a new one.

If the Setup Utility cannot detect your hard drive at all, then you either have a defective hard drive /or/ a defective SATA controller (this is what connects your hard drive to the computer). Unless you can connect your hard drive to another computer, it is very hard to determine which is causing the problem. You should contact HP if you are under warranty, or check in at a local computer repair shop if you are not.

If there are no errors reported with your hard drive, then either your hard drive only fails some of the time (and you should be able to boot into Windows at the moment), or there is a problem with the partition (section) on your hard drive that handles booting up. You will need to reformat the hard drive and reinstall Windows in this case.

Hi, My laptop Dell Inspiron 6000 have a blue screen every time it boots up. Can't load Windows (XP Home) the error message is: *** STOP 0x00190203, 0x86D63828, 0xC0000102, 0x00000000) Anyone can help?


there must have been a problem with the drivers you have just installed, or there is a corrupt windows file on your system, you should try reinstalling the system without reformating it with the use of a Bootable Windows XP Home Disk, you should make your CD/DVD Drive to boot from your system by configuring your bios on your boot priority.

When you are on the WIndows XP setup screen press enter, accept the license agreement, and it will check if you have existing windows partiotion, press R to repair the Partition, wait for it to finish, then your system comes back to normal.

Or another way is to boot into Safe Mode, in order to check if there are driver conflicts or corrupted files on your Windows system. Press F8 to go a menu where you can select to boot from Safe Mode.

Won't fully boot. Get windows screen, then it stalls gray


reformated twice? have you already ran diagnostics on the hdd? check first the hdd thru diagnostics it might the hdd causing the problem. if no errors found in hdd make sure it was reformated as clean install. your hdd might have partition and just reinstalled OS on he same partition without deleting partitions. Try deleting partitions then create new partitions then reinstall OS.

Raw file system


To fix the problem
Disable the S.M.A.R.T error detection feature in the CPUCool program or similar utility.
Boot to the Windows 2000 or XP installation CD, and at the Startup menu, press R for repair.
In the Recovery Console, type the following:
chkdsk /p
When the CHKDSK process has finished, reboot the computer.
Run the program again.
The error should no longer be reported unless you start using the S.M.A.R.T error detection feature again.

Error occurs with PartitionMagic 8.0
If you encounter Error 1516 with PartitionMagic 8, first run CHKDSK /F on the affected partition. For instructions on how to run CHKDSK, read How to Run Microsoft's CHKDSK from the Command Line. If this does not fix the error, try running PartitionMagic with the /IFC switch, which causes file system errors to be ignored.
To run PartitionMagic with the /IFC switch
Boot from the first PartitionMagic rescue disk.
When you are prompted to insert the second rescue disk, press Ctrl+C to drop to the command (A:>) prompt.
Insert the second PartitionMagic rescue disk and type the following:
pqmagic /ifc
Press Enter.
please go ahead and try the above steps may be it will fix it

Reformate


boot to a bott disk if it is an older system which it appers to be type format c: /u/s at the command prompt. (the flashing thing it will look different depending on brand and os most are just a flashing line. you should take the extra step to typing fdisk and deleting the partitions and creating newones. This utility is pretty self explanitory when you are in it. I can giude you through it if you need it. You need to run the fdisk at the command prompt.

If it is newer software like XP it will come up with a option when booting frok the cd while reinstalling. Choose dlete partition and let it make a new one not just format the drive it will give you more safttey because some viruses can write them selves into the boot sector and escape a format.

Reformatted hard drive won't boot


The grub loader is for linux, what it is telling you is that the file the boot loader is looking for was not found (that would be the case because you just reformated it). grub will also complain and fail to boot if the boot file is located past track 1024 (wich would be the case if you installed a significantly larger hard disk). I think what you need to do is delete all the partitions using windows (or dos)
re partition the drive (that will usualy reload the standard boot loader) and see what happens. if you need to install linux then install it on the first partition.

Reformating my hard drive


Several ways to do it. If you have the XP CD, you should be able to boot to it. Delete the partition and then choose to "Format the partition using the NTFS file system."

Remember to backup any data before you start. It will wipe your drive clean.
