    Registry Mechanic runs every day and comes up with the same problem HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Gabest\DVobSub\DefTextPathes

    and lists it as High Priority: Highlighted value is missing or invalid

    It does repair it ...but why every time it runs does the same problem occur

I was just giving a responce. plz forgive me dear sir if i have offended you :)

    Try putting the XP disk back in and just installing . It will leave everything like it is and install. Of course you may of already did this. Did you use update instead of new install?

Maybe, you have registry problem. 

  • Just restart the system 
  • Press F8 while starting the windows
  • Select "Safe Mode" options 
  • After restarting, a window will come up on screen

How do I recover or repair bootini and bootsect for Windows XP Professional after uninstalling Windows 7 Ultimate?

It's good that you have the recovery cds. Do NOT reformat the hard drive. Restore with the cds so you'll have a clean install . You will need to have any software cds that did not come with the original pc in order for them to rebuild the registry entries. That is the easiest way because there won't be any left over files from Windows 7 after you restore to XP.

Display resolution on my pc is not good

Check the model of your motherboard with the tool CPU-Z from here. search for the drivers on the internet. From Device Manager (open with the run command: devmgmt.msc), see whether the driver is installed properly or not. The Windows XP and Windows 7 drivers are different. so you have to install updated drivers means for Windows 7 operating system only. Check the motherboard manufactures web site to download the drivers and to get more information.

I installed windows xp on a Dell XPS 400 and on a Dell Latitude D505, both are genuine copies of Windows Xp pro. I forgot to save the Drivers before installing the XP. So the ethernet ports don't work on...

Probably the previous download files you have downloaded are corrupted, do a check the downloaded files sizes from source & the downloaded to your PC/Notebook are the same sizes.

1. Download link @ Drivers & Downloads for Latitude D505

2. Dowload link @ Product Support for XPS/Inspiron XPS (Key in your "Service Tag" to locate the exact drivers for your model).

Hope it helps.

Xp recovery

You need to download all the drivers installer files from manufacturer website first, and also all the software you want to install automatically with Windows. Then you build a Windows Xp boot CD with all the software setup embedded.
