you dont need the administrator password for a system restore, simply boot of the restore CD.. Google Windows XP password reset DISC and download and boot that disc to reset the password. I cant post a specific software here as it may be considered soliciting..
Try to Boot on safe mode and check if you can do a system restore there and hopefully you wont have that error message , but if still have that error you can try to run your recovery disc to recover that missing file....
hi you just need to restore the system back to the date where sound was working fine , you may follow the process
click on start then go to all programs them accessoris, then system tools select system restore and restore your system back to the date where your system was working fine , (this process if if you have win xp .
for vista and win 7
type system restore in start search and restore the system back to the date.
Hope this resolves the issue .
Upon booting, beofre Windows Logo, press F5 key to get computer to boot into SAFE MODE/Administrator. See if you have mouse control under this mode. If yes, then there's a good chance that the mouse is OK .
once in SAFE MODE and are able to regain mouse, the chances are good that you can just restart the computer and everything will return to "normal".
Suggestion #1: reboot computer to NORMAL after having sucessful SAFE MODE mouse test.
Suggestion #2: see if you have a recovery point (system restore) before the mouse issue came about.
Note: To perform System Restore, you must be logged on to Windows as an administrator. If this is your personal computer, you are likely already logged on with an administrator account. To use System Restore to restore Windows XP to a previous state, follow these steps:
Log on to Windows as Administrator.
Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click System Restore. System Restore starts.
On the Welcome to System Restore page, click Restore my computer to an earlier time (if it is not already selected), and then click Next.
On the Select a Restore Point page, click the most recent system restore point in the On this list, click a restore point list, and then click Next.
Note: A System Restore message may appear that lists configuration changes that System Restore will make. Click OK.
On the Confirm Restore Point Selection page, click Next. System Restore restores the previous Windows XP configuration, and then restarts the computer.
Log on to the computer as Administrator. The System Restore Restoration Complete page is displayed. Click OK. If you successfully restored your computer to a previous state, and the computer is performing as it should be, you are finished.
*If those steps doesn't work, reinstall the drivers.
You need a restoration disc that may have with your PC or you can obtain one from the PC manufacturer. For some PCs the restoration software may already be in your hard drive. You can go to My computer to find out or check under Programs in the Start menu. You can also use system restore (assuming u have win xp) by going to start - all programs - accessories - system tools - system restore. then select the restore point.
On eMacines, the recovery partition contains your driver and software. But you needed to create the recovery cd set when you got your computer.
To restore it,if your computer came with XP, borrow an Win XP cd (cannot be a HP,Dell etc).
Try a repair first:
When you boot with the Win XP install CD-ROM, it loads a minimal operating system, similar to DOS, but compatible with Win XP. At the first screen you select install Win XP (not Recovery Console) and at the next screen it will find that you already have Win XP and offer to attempt a repair. This repair should not touch your applications, it just reinstall the Windows files. This is great because when it works you don't need to reinstall all your software.
If a repair does not work, do a complete install. If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it. Thanks, Joe
You have done big mistake that's why you are getting problem.
1)Regarding installation of win XP over windows vista. You have to install first lower version and then higher version i.e. you should install first win xp and then windows vista. But vice-versa you can't do it. So my suggestion is that format your c drive then install win XP after installation win XP install win vista.
2) which operation system do you want to open . You can remove it using windows tweak utility software wich is freely available on most of the website. Also you can manually edit it. For manually do this.( i m not sure about windows vista it is available or not) right click on my computer->click on Advanced Tab->setup and recovery framework click on settings->click on Edit button You will see the boot.ini file. You can remove the windows XP line from that file.
