System Restore Via Recovery Console


<br /> Ever encountered a problem with your computer wherein it gives you an error page saying that a certain file in the registry is missing or corrupt? Unfortunately, with this kind of error, there are times that you are not able to boot into the OS, and therefor you are not able to do a system restore. <br /> If you are using Windows 7 or Vista, you may initiate System Restore via booting into "Repair My Computer" which you can choose via the Advanced Boot Options of Windows. However, what do you do if this does not work, or you are using Windows XP. <br /> Fortunately, there is still a way to be able to restore your system. This involves manually doing the system restore via the recovery console (for XP), and recovery environment (Vista and 7). The only thing that you will need is the OS CD. <br /> Once you have successfully booted into the Recovery Console, type in the commands below and make sure that you press "ENTER" after each line. <br /> <br /> C:\WINDOWS] cd \ C:\] attrib -h-s "system volume information" C:\] Cd "system volume information" C:\system volume information] cd _resto~1 ..._resto~1] dir --- this should list several rp folders [short for restore points] just select second to the last or any of your choice other the the last rp folder ..._resto~1] cd rp# ...rp#] cd snapshot ...snapshot] dir --- the 5 hive files are shown in this format: _registry_machine_software _registry_machine_security _registry_machine_system _registry_machine_sam _registry_user_.default Syntax [Command filename location] ...snapshot] copy _registry_machine_software c:\windows\system32\config\software ...snapshot] copy _registry_machine_system c:\windows\system32\config\system ...snapshot] copy _registry_machine_security c:\windows\system32\config\security ...snapshot] copy _registry_machine_sam c:\windows\system32\config\sam ...snapshot] copy _registry_user_.default c:\windows\system32\config\default ...snapshot] exit <br /> After this, you just need to restart your computer and it should be working fine.

What is the Print Screen key on my keyboad used for?


If you used computers back in the 80's (DOS days) you probably remember using the Print Screen key on your keyboard to print a copy of whatever was on the monitor screen at that time on your printer. It wasn't used that much because back in those days it took forever for a dot matrix printer to print out the entire monitor screen. However, it came in handy once and awhile.<br />Today, many people just glance at the Print Screen key (and wonder what it's there for), and some hit the key and when nothing happens they just forget about it.<br />Well, Microsoft didn't forget about it at all. They turned it into a "Snapshot key" which, as that term implies, takes a snapshot of the monitor screen. <br />Microsoft doesn't really highlight the fact that a user, after taking a snapshot of the screen, can easily save and/or print that snapshot using paint.<br />After taking the snapshot, in Windows XP simply click on Start, All Programs, Accessories and Paint. Then click on Edit followed by Paste and Voila! There's your screen snapshot in living color staring you in the face! This same capability exists in other versions of Windows, however the key-stroke sequence differs.<br />Now you can click on File, Save As, and save it with a .jpg/tif extension (etc.) and/or send it to your printer using File, Print.<br /><br />Perhaps Microsoft tried to get the keyboard manufacturers to change the name of the key from Print Screen to Snapshot, but I guess we will be stuck with the keyboad Print Screen label forever.<br /><br />Anyway, the Print Screen key is a much more functional tool under Windows than it ever was

Installed ok but just have black screen when capturing video or snapshot


Try reinstalling the software paying close attention to what is being asked during setup as this would determine how your equipment will be used. This should correct the problem. Also check for conflicts between equipment on your system. Good Luck

My desktop icons keep resetting thier order/layout.


Okay, well check your graphics properties to make sure you aren't saving your desktop profile and reloading it every time windows starts. It shouldn't be automatically turned on, but if it is, it will have taken a snapshot of your system at some point, and it will reload the snapshot of how your desktop is supposed to be each time you restart windows. It can also load your settings such as auto-arrange on.
That should fix any problems you have about the computer resetting itself. As for where that's located, I can't give a general idea, it depends on your card and drivers, but I have Windows Vista Home Premium as well and I know the option should be there
