Hot keys not working


HiAre there any changes made? Intsallation of software, hardware or download.Well the best thing to do is to follow this.
Follow these instructions for reverting important Windows Vista files back to a previous state using System Restore:
Difficulty: EasyTime Required: Using System Restore to reverse system changes in Windows Vista usually takes several minutesHere's How:
Navigate to the Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools program group.
Click on the System Restore program icon.
Choose the Choose a different restore point radio button and then click Next >.
Note: The default choice is Recommended restore. This restore point is probably the most recent automatically created one and is likely the best choice. However, for purposes of demonstrating the entire System Restore process in Windows Vista, I'll be continuing with the longer process of choosing a restore point manually.
Choose the restore point that you want to use.
Note: Check the Show restore points older than 5 days checkbox to see more than the most recent restore points.
Note: Any restore points that you created, scheduled restore points that Windows Vista created, and those created automatically during the installation of certain programs will be listed here. You can not use System Restore to undo Windows Vista changes to a date that a restore point does not exist.
Click Next >.
Click Finish on the Confirm your restore point window to begin the System Restore.
Note: Windows Vista will shut down to complete the System Restore so be sure to save any work you might have open in other programs before proceeding.
Important: System Restore will not revert any of your non-system files like documents, email, music, etc. to a previous state. These types files are completely unaffected by System Restore. If your intention with this tool was to recover a deleted non-system file, try using a file recovery program instead of System Restore.Click Yes to the Are you sure you want to continue? dialog box.
System Restore will now restore Windows Vista to the state that was recorded in the restore point you chose in Step 4.
Note: The System Restore process could take several minutes as you see the "Please wait while your Windows files and settings are being restored" message. Your computer will then reboot as normal when complete.
Immediately after logging in after the reboot, you should see a message that System Restore completed successfully.
Click Close.
Check to see if whatever Windows Vista problem you were troubleshooting has been corrected by this System Restore.
If the problem still persists, you can repeat the steps above and choose another restore point if one is available.
If this restoration caused a problem, you can always undo this particular System Restore.

when you bought your computer you must have got a back up cd with it to reinstall everything as it was.. I mean factory installed/default.. If you did not got this cd try this:


Using Windows 7 or Vista System Restore

Windows 7 and Vista has a feature called System Restore that automatically backs up registry and system files whenever you install new software or drivers. This feature is useful when you install evil software that makes your computer run really slow. But don't worry, System Restore won't remove Windows Vista/7.

Using System Restore in Windows

There are two places that you can use the system restore feature from. From within Windows, you can just type restore into the Start menu search box, and you'll immediately see System Restore at the top of the start menu:


Or you can type rstrui into the search box and hit enter. Your choice.

You will immediate see a screen where you can choose to roll back the system to the last restore point. You can select "Recommended restore", and just click next, or you can choose a different restore point.

If you do choose a different restore point, you will see a list of restore points that you can choose from. How many times have I typed the word choose at this point?

Click one of them, and you will have to confirm and then restart your computer to roll the system back.

If you receive an error while restoring, then use it from safe mode and it should work fine. To get into Safe mode, you can reboot and use the F8/F2 key right before Windows starts up.

If Your System Won't Boot

If you can't even get into windows, you can boot off the installation dvd, and choose the "Repair your computer" option on the lower left hand side. If you don't have an installation/repair disc, you can make one with these instructions.

Click next on the next screen, and then choose System Restore from the System Recovery dialog. It will take a few seconds to come up, and you will see the same screen that you would see in Windows:

Click next, and on the next screen select the drive that your copy of Windows 7 or Vista is installed on.

Click Finish, and Windows will roll back to the previous restore point. Really pretty simple stuff.


hope this helps you out, if it helped you out please like/rate the answer please, it will really help

Vista's System Recovery Console


Vista's System Recovery Console


First, Boot from your Vista installation CD.

Select your Vista Install from the list in Windows Boot Manager

· Microsoft Vista Setup (x86)
· Microsoft Vista Setup (x64)

Press enter.

You will then see Windows is Loading Files.

Next, the Language Screen will come up. Since you have already selected this option when you installed Vista, just click on Next.

Now you will see the Vista Installation Screen.

DO NOT CHOOSE Install Now

Instead, towards the bottom left of the window you will see.

· What to know before installing Windows

· Repair your Computer

Choose and click on Repair your Computer

You will then come to the System Recovery Options. Choose Microsoft Windows Vista from the list. Then click Next.

You will now have the option to choose which Recovery Tools you wish to use.

This list provides details to the five tools that can help you repair your Vista installation. These tools are:

1. Startup Repair

Automatically fix problems that are preventing Windows from starting:

Startup Repair is an automated repair process that scans your Vista installation for problems and attempts to automatically fix them. When you select to repair Vista from the Vista setup screen, and Vista detects problems, this process will be started automatically. You can cancel this process at any time to access the other repair tools described below. The Startup Repair process has already been introduced above when we discussed performing an automated repair.

2. System Restore

Restore Windows to an earlier point in time:

System Restore allows you to restore your computer's configuration, driver information, and programs to a previous state while leaving your existing data intact. Using this option can typically fix a installation's problem if it is not associated with faulty hardware. In order to use this option, you must have had System Restore enabled in Vista so that there are restore points available to restore to.

3. Windows Complete PC Restore

Restore your entire computer from a backup:

Complete PC Restore is a feature that allows you to restore your entire computing environment from a backup image that you created previously. The ability to create backup images for Complete PC Restore is only available in Windows Vista Business, Ultimate, and Enterprise. If you have tried all possible steps to repair your computer, and have a Complete PC Restore backup image available from when your computer was operating properly, then you can use this repair option to restore that image.

4. Windows Memory Diagnostic Tools

Check your computer for memory hardware errors:

Windows Vista comes with a diagnostic tool that allows you to check the memory installed in your computer for errors. This will allow you to determine if the actual memory (RAM) hardware installed in your computer is creating errors.

5. Command Prompt

Opens the Command Prompt window:

The Command Prompt repair tool allows you to open a command prompt that you can use to access the files and registry information on your computer. This is an invaluable tool for removing security threats such as worms, rootkits, and other malware from your computer and to be able to access files when Vista fails to boot up.



Command Prompts

To help get you started with using the Command Prompt. Here are listed a series of console commands that work in this environment. To get the help information for each of these programs you can type the program name followed by /h and press the enter key. For example, to see the help information for the copy command you would type copy /h and then press the enter key. As more programs and commands are found they will be added to the lists below. Each of the console commands must be typed into the console in order to execute them.

Console Command Description

Copy - Copy a file to another location.

Move - Move a file to another location.

Rd - Remove an empty directory.

Ren - Rename a file or directory.

More - Show the contents of a file one page a time. Typically used to read text/ascii files.

Type - Show the contents of a file all at once without pausing at each page like the more command. Typically used to read text/ascii files.

Xcopy - Copy a folder and all its contents to another location.

mkdir - Make a new directory.

Diskpart - Load the Windows disk management program. From this program you can create, delete, shrink, and expand your existing partitions as well as get information about partitions and hard drives.

Dir - List the contents of the current directory or the directory you specify as an argument.

Cd - Change your current directory to another one.

Attrib - Change the file attributes on a particular file or directory.

Del - Delete a file

Bcdedit - Displays and allows you to change how Windows boots up. This command is useful for people who are having trouble with the Windows Boot Manager.

Chkdsk - Scan your hard disk for errors and fix them.


Choose the above options that best fits your computer problems.

The first option (Startup Repair) will run automatically. And will fix or repair Vista’s MBR and check for any corrupt files and folders.

NOTE: This option will also remove any installed program(s) that could be causing Vista not to start, or run correctly.



Note: If you are running a RAID array, if this does not help and you are receiving errors. Check in your BIOS and make sure the BIOS did not convert back to IDE. Vista needs to see the complete MBR, In a RAID setup the MBR is split between two drives.

Acer crystal eye webcam


How to Record Webcam Video with Earlier Versions of Windows Movie Maker If you're still using Windows XP, your Windows Movie Maker version might still support capturing video from a webcam. To do this, go to your WMM Movie Tasks and then select "Capture from Video Device". Select webcam from the list of analog devices. You must also select the video input line you want to use for capturing your webcam video. Then enter a name for your captured video file and the location of the drive where you want to save it. Select your video setting preferences for the video you want to capture. To stop capturing, you can either
choose to stop anywhere during the recording session or indicate a specific time limit before the recording stops.
How to Record Video on Your Webcam with Newer Versions of Windows Movie Maker When we say newer versions, we are referring to Windows Movie Maker version 6 which comes pre-loaded with the Windows Vista system. Since Windows Vista is a pretty advanced OS, we expected the latest version of the WMM to support webcam video capture as well. It's very helpful and economical since it comes packaged with Windows Vista, and you don't have to pay the extra cost just to have that tool.
So, the next question now is, how can you record a webcam video using Windows Movie Maker 6. Actually, like we said - you can't. You won't see the "Start Capture" tool in the File Menu of your latest Windows Movie Maker.
Your best bet is to look for alternative and cheaper software that would help you capture whatever you want to record from your webcam. Or, better yet, use the software that comes with your webcam to capture video and then import it into Windows Movie Maker for editing and enhancements. If your webcam didn't come with video capture software, you're in luck because there are free software appllications available for you to download to do such tasks. You can find a good list of webcam video capturing software from this list:

Orbicam?


because the cam is built in its not as versatile as a mobile cam, but you can turn the cam over 225 degrees to film from the back of the notebook. If using Vista, open the cam software click the right arrow next to record video button and set your personal settings, click record and then any recording will be saved to my videos. You then can import it into windows movie maker and then add any effects to your movie. if you have XP or XP media centre you can use windows movie maker2 and make your video from within the programme itself using the orbicam, without using the orbicam software.
