What will i do!after i shutdown my compaq Evo N800v laptop,and remove the harddisk for me to copy some larger files on my another laptop!and when i put the harddisk back and power it on,it just hang up on...


It looks like one of the start up files have been changed or corrupt. Any change to the boot environment will cause this problem. The solution here could be a bit long but you just have to take your hard drive to the other computer and back up all your user data and files you need. Then take is back to the Laptop, just in case anything goes bad. Get a copy of the operating system you are using on a CD and let the computer boot from it by pressing F2 or Del to get into the BIOS and go to the Boot Sequence or Boot order to make the CD rom the first device to boot from. Then press F10 to save and exit. This will allow the computer to boot form the CD. Choose the repair option to repair the master boot record. If you are using Windows XP, put the CD in and choose Repair on the first window. This is a command prompt and this is what you are going to type in the command prompt to install the Automatic System Recovery (ASR) winnt32.exe /cmdcons and this will install the recovery console. In the recovery console, type fixmbr to fix the master boot record

Disk read error


it is entirely possible that the boot sector is damaged. if this is the case you need to boot with the cd that came with the machine, or a recovery cd you've made, and load the recovery environment. once their load the command prompt. it should just be a button in vista or 7 and it will automatically load in xp. once loaded type "chkdsk c: /r" no quotes. let it run, this will check for bad sectors and should fix the issue. try and reboot, and let me know what happens. if you don't have the recovery cd's or installation media you can download msdart, which has the recovery console built in. i went ahead and uploaded msdart, download the version you think you need. https://rapidshare.com/files/2296685117/ERD50_x86_WinXP_SP3_blueforce.ziphttps://rapidshare.com/files/2914560443/ERD60_x64_WinVista_SP2_blueforce.zip https://rapidshare.com/files/267688033/ERD60_x86_WinVista_SP2_blueforce.ziphttps://rapidshare.com/files/1400985026/ERD65_x64_Win7_RTM_blueforce.ziphttps://rapidshare.com/files/3314839442/ERD65_x86_Win7_RTM_blueforce.zip

The laptop shows windows system 32 configuration file corrupt error how to run laptop?


Hi

Windows system 32 file is part of the operating system and when it is corrupted, you cannot boot up your computer. I suggest if you had a systems back files, use it to recover the missing file. Just load the back up disk CD/DVD into the CDROM, boot up your computer and run it to CDROM and option will display and choose the repair.

If don't have the systems back up disk. Only solution is to reinstall or repair your operating system.

For reinstalling and repairing, insert the OS installer CD in your CDROM and boot up your computer and run the repair or reinstallation process. Follow the procedure.

My acer 5100 laptop will not boot up. I get


you could try going to the boot menu, and choosing 'last known good', but that is probably not going to work.

you should be able to run a repair off the CD....

the file is a kernel, a neccessary file used by Windows. It may have gotten corrupted or deleted.. possibly by a virus or bad hard drive sector.

get a disc, and run repair, if that doesn't fix it, you may need to re-install a fresh copy of windows, which will over-write all your data. you may be able to boot to that upgrade CD and that may have a repair option...

good luck.

Computer boots up then shows windows 98 scrren


you may face either harddisk failure, a driver problem or virus infection:

tools: original win98-cd (or a bootable image

version of it), antivir-software on cd!

- please check whether it is possible to boot from win98-cd, with cd-rom support, not from harddisk.

(such option should be availabe after bios-load is over)

if not:

leave the setup process without fully installing
(press F3 button when asked for repair or install option)

in both cases :

type at the dos-prompt:

c:\win98/win

(command for changing to harddisk, windows-folder, booting windows from harddisk, but without loading all the drivers as usually)

win98 should come up in protected mode or give error messages.

- access cd-drive and execute vir-scan.
- delete and/or repair infected files
- turn down, attempt to reboot from hd
- if still impossible reboot from win98-cd,
run repair of installation and try once again
standard boot

problem solved? if not, take down error messages consult fixya again!

"Non-system disk or disk error replace and strike any key when ready".


If this error occurs you open the cabinet disconnected the harddisk data cable for few seconds and reconnected the harddisk data cable and bot it will work.
