WINDOWS XP SYSTEM RESTORE


System Restore is a tool that takes your computer back to a previously working state. This option is available in Windows ME, Windows XP and Windows Vista. Windows takes snapshots of critical system files, program files and registry settings and stores them as "Restore Points". If ever you should have any problem with your computer, you can "restore" your computer to one of these Restore Points, when your computer was working fine.
Please remember - System restore does NOT have any effect on your personal files such as emails, documents or photographs.
HOW TO USE SYSTEM RESTORE TO RESTORE WINDOWS XP TO A PREVIOUSLY WORKING STATE
In order to perform a System Restore, you must have administrative rights in your computer. If this is your own personal computer, then chances are that you will be having administrative rights in it, however if you are on a network computer, say for example in a computer at your workplace, then you will have to request your Network Administrator to help you.
In order to restore Windows to a previously working "Restore Point" follow the steps given below:
1. Log on to Windows with administrative rights.
2. Click Start, go to All Programs, go to Accessories, go to System Tools, and then click System Restore. System Restore starts.
3. 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.
4. On the Select a Restore Point page, click the most recent system restore point and then click Next.
Note A System Restore message may appear that lists configuration changes that System Restore will make. Click OK.

5. On the Confirm Restore Point Selection page, click Next. System Restore restores the previous Windows XP configuration, and then restarts the computer.
6. Log on back to your computer. The System Restore Restoration Complete page is displayed.
7. Click OK.

If you have successfully restored your computer to a previous state, and the computer is performing as it should be, you can stop here.
But if the restore process completed successfully and the computer is still not performing as you want, you can either restore your computer to a different restore point or just undo the current System Restore. In order to undo a System Restore, please continue reading.
HOW TO RUN SYSTEM RESTORE FROM THE COMMAND PROMPT?
Many times, you may not be able to run System Restore because your computer will not start up normally. But you can still run System Restore from the command prompt.
  • Click on Start -> Run -> and type in %systemrestore%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe and click OK
OR
  1. Start up the computer in Safe Mode or Safe Mode with Command Prompt
  2. At the Command Prompt type %systemrestore%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe
  3. You can replace %systemrestore% with C:\Windows, if you like
  4. You might have to select the Operating System in your computer
  5. You might also have to enter your username and password
  6. You should have Administrator Rights in your computer to do this.
HOW TO UNDO A SYSTEM RESTORE:

You may have unintentionally restored Windows XP to a previous configuration that you do not want. To undo the restoration, follow these steps:
1. Log on to Windows with administrative rights.
2. Click Start, go to All Programs, go to Accessories, go to System Tools, and then click System Restore. System Restore starts.
3. On the Welcome to System Restore page, click Undo my last restoration, and then click Next.
Note A System Restore message may appear that lists configuration changes that System Restore will make. Click OK.
4. On the Confirm Restoration Undo page, click Next. System Restore restores the original Windows XP configuration, and then restarts the computer.
5. Logon to the computer as Administrator. The System Restore Undo Complete page appears.
6. Click OK.
You can now run System Restore again from a Different Restore Point.

My hp pavillion dv6000 wont start normally. in safe mode will start but continues to request product key when i log in with my password.


It seems to be an issue with some software that is conflicting with the operating system. I would advise you to clear the start first. The steps below would help you clear the start up.

For XP:
  • Click on the start button(with the windows logo on it) on the bottom left corner of the screen.
  • Click on Run.
  • A small pop up box would open at the bottom left corner above the start button.
  • In the dialogue box beside "Open : " type "msconfig" and hit enter.
  • System Configuration Utility would open.
  • On the top menu, identify and click on Start up.
  • Now, click on the button "Disable All", at the bottom right corner. This will disable all the start up programs. However, you will still be able to access all those programs from Start->All Programs.
  • Click on "Apply" and then click on Ok/Close. If "Apply" is grayed out, click on Ok/Close. If administrator password is prompted, click OK and proceed with the steps below.
  • You would see another pop box with 2 options, "Restart" and "Exit Restart" or "Restart Later". Do not worry, if you do not get this option.
  • Restart your computer.
  • Immediately after your computer restarts, you will see a pop box. In that box, CLICK TO CHECK THE RADIO BUTTON AND ONLY THEN CLICK ON OK.
  • If you forget this step, you will have to start over again.
  • Your computer should have now booted to normal mode.
For VISTA or Win 7:
  • Click on the Start button (with the windows logo on it).
  • Click on Start Search and type msconfig.
  • On the top, under programs, you will find a link for msconfig. Right click on msconfig and click on Run as administrator. Click on continue (in user account control box).
  • System Configuration Utility would open.
  • On the top menu, identify and click on Start up.
  • Now, click on the button "Disable All", at the bottom right corner. This will disable all the start up programs. However, you will still be able to access all those programs from Start->All Programs.
  • Click on "Apply" and then click on Ok/Close. If "Apply" is grayed out, click on Ok/Close. If administrator password is prompted, click OK and proceed with the steps below.
  • You would see another pop box with 2 options, "Restart" and "Exit Restart" or "Restart Later". Do not worry, if you do not get this option.
  • Restart your computer.
  • Your computer should have now booted to normal mode.
If you still face the same problem, you can download and install the BIOS update.

If any of the above steps do not work, then it could be an issue with windows updates and any other updates that might have created a conflict. In this case, restore the computer to an earlier date when it was working fine. For that, follow the steps below.
For XP:
  • Click Start.
  • Click Help and Support.
  • Type system restore in the Search box, and then press ENTER.
For Vista or Win 7:
  • Click Start vistastartbutton.jpg, type system restore in the Start Search box, and then click System Restore in the Programs list.
  • If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type your password or click Continue.
  • In the System Restore dialog box, click Choose a different restore point, and then click Next.
  • In the list of restore points, click a restore point that was created before you began to experience the issue, and then click Next.
  • Click Finish.
Hope all this helps you.
Still if this does not work, then contact an expert who can help you with doing more troubleshooting on this in recovery environment. In recovery environment, we can try sfc /scannow and check /r.
Good luck.

Password


You can try booting in the safemode to see whether the default administrator account is enabled. If it is there then log on to the administrator account and changed the password for the account.

If the administrator account is not enabled then you should have the Vista disc to do system restore. Boot the computer from the Windows VIsta disc.. when you see the setup screen look for Repair your computer link at the left bottom corner. Click that follow the instruction to do system restore.

IF you dont have the vista disc call you Acer support to find how to boot in to Win RE

Good luck

Lost my right as administrator


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.
