Re: win exp keeps giving a screen that says it must close...
The recovery disk will wipe out everything on your computer to the way it came out of the factory. In other words, you'll have a fresh, clean, non-updated copy of Windows -- and lose all the documents you want.
Now, you say you can't get into your documents. What, exactly, is happening? What is this screen you see?
IF you're getting an error message when you try to open a file: Right-click on the file Select Open With Find the program you want Select "Always open with this application" Hit OK.
If you're getting an error message when you try to go to "My Documents," you may have to rebuild it. In the short term you can go to Start: My Computer: C drive, Documents and Settings, your username, Documents.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

try going into the system setup or bios screen and see if you can find a setting for SATA Operation or SATA Mode for the hard drive. if you can find this, select ATA or AHCI and test the installation again. hope this helps.

You have not mentioned which type of the document you need to edit however if you have the most common MS Word .doc file than it can be opened in "WordPad" which ships free with Windows. To access it go to and click the Start button and then in the stop menu select Accessories. You will find WordPad there.
you first need a windows xp setup dvd. Then you must insert the dvd And boot the dvd by restarting your notebook. As the dvd gets booting it will show (press any key to continue)
press the key and here the setup screen runs. A blue screen runs and loads for sometime. After loading it gives three choices there. Choose the first one.
(press enter there)
Then (press F8) if a read document comes in the screen
Then it might search for any previous copy of winxp installed in your system. If you want to (repair your win press r) otherwise (press esc key)
now it will show all the patition of hard disc... your drives. Now just go to the c partition and format it by (pressing enter and press L) and then format by quick ntfs. And thats it setup starts to install a fresh copy of a os xp in your notebook.
try to uninstall then reinstall the driver. to do that go type device manager in run box in XP and start search in Vista/ Win 7, and look for the scanner. right click and uninstall. then load the driver from the website or from the cd that came with your device..
Restart the computer is Safe Mode (press F8 when booting to get a menu of options). This will start the computer with the minimum number of drivers and "extras" being loaded. From here you can press Win+R to bring up the Run command and enter 'msconfig' and press Enter. From this tool, you can allow your normal startup programs and device drivers to load. You will want to keep anything related to your DSL drivers disabled for the time being. Then restart the computer normally. If everything loads as it should, you can keep going back to the MS Configuration utility to add other drivers and programs one-by-one and retest (reboot again) to make sure everything is working properly. Once you know what the culprit is, you can uninstall that program and reinstall the Vista version if required. (If it is just software for your DSL modem, it probably is not required under Vista.)
