Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

I tried a nondestructive recovery which has worked in the past with no problems, however, this time I don't think it made it through entirely, shut down and when it booted back up the top of the screen said _NTDETECT Then would flash to the error 'Missing or corrupt C:\WINDOWS\system32\config\SYSTEM' I don't have the original CD to whatever I've read online. I shut it off and the screen with Safe Mode, Safe Mode with networking, Last Known Good COnfig, Start Normally came up. I tried the LKGC but it still give the missing or corrupt msg. I am not a technical person. Any help would be great. Thanks

Hp pavillion vista won't shut down


I think your at the point to do a Full System Recovery. Do you have a Factory Recovery Partition? You didn't supply the Model of HP or the OS you are using?

Computer boots up but screen shuts down within minutes


That sure sounds like a heating (cooling) problem. If you can open the case outside, try to blow out all of the dust bunnies and creatures from other worlds. One shop I know uses a compressor for this but you can by cans of compressed air. THIS IS HIGHLY FLAMMABLE! as I found out in a small basement room when I tried to vacuum as I sprayed the dust. Have you ever seen a Kenmore cannister vac in full afterburner?

Come back inside and boot the system up with the case open. Observe whether all of the fans are working. There is one in the power supply, one more on the CPU and there may be others on the case and on the graphics card.

If any fans have failed, replace them. Check the current temperatures in the BIOS setup mode, see if they increase. See if the shut-off settings in the BIOS are too low but don't reset them too high as heat can do real damage.

I suspect dust because this may have come on gradually.

System restore does not work vista


System Restore does not work? Why not? What type of message are you getting?

Were there any Restore Points created?

Are we talking System Restore or System Recovery (to factory settings)?

System Restore works within the windows environment and does not cause you to lose any data. You get it started by clicking Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore and then select a Restore Point (date and time) before you started having problems. It does not delete any of your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs (unless the program was installed after the restore point you selected).

System Recovery on the other had deletes everything. It sets your system back to the point when your first purchased it. Most times you need to read the manual on how to get the Recovery started. Hopefully you have a Recovery Partition on your hard drive that was setup by the manufacturer because trying to recover from disks that you created don't work most times.

CANT RESTORE MY COMPUTER


It is asking for the recovery discs that should have been made in the event there was a problem with the recovery sector on drive D or the hard drive failed. The only option is go to www.hp.com contact customer support and the technical department to see if they can sell you the much needed discs.

Need to reinstall windows xp


You would want to access the recovery partition. This can be accomplished by pressing the 'F10' or the 'R' key when the system boots. This should load the system recovery tool and you will see a dialog box for conducting a "nondestructive system recovery". If you wish to restore the machine to factory condition (this will not include anything you installed since the original purchase, so you may wish to backup any files you wish to save before conducting this process) you will want to select "next" and wait to be prompted for confirmation and select "yes". When the process is complete the system reboots.

In the case where you seek to conduct a "destructive system recovery" you can select the 'advance' option from the initial dialog prompt in the system recovery and following the prompts as before. If you select this option it will delete the user partition of your hard drive, so unless you have experience formatting HD and installing Windows XP, I would suggest not choosing this option.

Trying to install entir dell 4600 system I had a virus and I don't know how to reinstall it


DELL USUALLY HAS A RECOVERY PARTITION. TO GET TO IT YOU MUST PRESS THE " F11 " KEY MANY TIMES WHILE IT BOOTING UP. THIS SHOULD GET YOU TO THE SYSTEM RECOVERY OPTION. JUST FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS. DELL ALSO HAS SUPPLIED RECOVERY CDs INSTEAD OF THE RECOVERY PARTITION. IF YOU DIDN'T GET THE CDS THEN YOU PROBABLY HAVE THE PARTITION.

RESTARTING COMPUTER(AMIGOS)


hi powee;
have you recently installed some device driver?

This error usually occurs after the installation of a buggy device driver, system service, or BIOS. To resolve it quickly, restart your computer, and press F8 at the character-mode menu that displays the operating system choices. At the resulting Windows 2000 Advanced Options menu, choose the Last Known Good Configuration option. This option is most effective when only one driver or service is added at a time.

here is the link;

hope it resolves your problem
