Will not boot to operating system

if you have your original operating system dvd/disc to hand then put this in the DVD drive, then turn off the PC, turn it back on, see if the DVD boots up, if not, restart and when the pc starts up next time press DEL or Backspace when you turn it back on when you see white dots and bottom of screen with black background, this should get you into the boot menu (if it's not DEL) it maybe F8, F10, or F12 sorry im not sure for your computer but should be one of these(some computers even use F1-F2, your looking for the boot menu. You then need to select the DVD drive to be first in order to boot, save then it will boot up from the disc and attempt a system repair and check your system files are all ok, this may take some time so u leave the PC while it's doing this, if successful it will autmatically boot back up or hopefully give you a error message to tell you whats up.

Im trying to install microsoft office home and student 2007 on window xp but it tell me it encounter a problem

Installation problems can come from a variety of sources. The installation may be being blocked by an anti-virus /spyware /malware /junkware /whateverware loaded in memory, it may be being blocked by the rights of the user, it may be that the CD/DVD is defective or the drive reading the CD/DVD; or it may be incompatible with the operating system (which it is not in this case, unless it's the 64bit version which will not run on the 32bit version of Window XP).

1) turn off all the background stuff via MSCONFIG or boot in "Clean mode" and try again.
2) Make sure you are installing as an administrator
3) Check the CD/DVD by trying to install it on an different machine
4) Install all the updates and service packs for windows then check the compatibility of the Office you are trying to install.

Toshiba Satellite A505-S6012

You may have written over the Recovery Partition when you install Win 8. Have you tried a System Recovery using the Toshiba Recovery Procedure: Start on page 60. If you boot the Laptop do you see a "D:" drive? When you loaded Win 8 did you choose C drive and leave D intact?

Sounds like a new blank Hard Drive, erased Hard drive or a faulty hard drive. If hard drives not faulty need to restore the original drives contents from a back up made previously on an external drive or DVD's. If you do not have the back up, then you need to load the original OS using an original restore CD / DVD's and then load all the correct and required drivers from the Site for that model PC and the OS (XP. VISTA. WIN 7 etc) you are using.

How we do recovery........

Insert the original HP "System Restore" CD/DVD disk into the drive.
Restart the computer, and tell it to boot from the optical drive, rather than letting it boot from the 'C:' drive.
Click to reinstall Windows.

I just replaced the hard drive On my Lenovo ThinkPad T60 and I am trying to reboot and install the OS & MS Office. I have a blue screen that reads cannot reboot from any device: Excluded from boot...

Is the hard drive seen in the system bios?Once you upgraded the hard drive did you re-install the operating system.Remember this,,, if the operating system on the drive belonged to another system you will encounter issues when the bios and the new hard drive starts to interact resulting .If you have data on this drive make a back up so you may restore it once the new operating system is installed.
Good luck

Missing or bad msacm32.dll file attributed to many files not running, i.e., setup.exe, rundll32.exe, Explorer.exe and many more. is there any way to fix it without reformatting

The answer depends on why these files are missing.

Can you boot the computer at all or into safe mode?

If so you could run the "System Restore Wizard" and restore your system to a point before this problem happened. You can find the system restore wizard in the windows help.

This should fix the problem if has been caused by a virus or an accidental file deletion but if your disk had bad blocks or something then it might need replacing.

If this does not solve the problem tell us more about the exact error message and when it occurs.

No Operating System; Cannot Format User Partition - Gateway MX595


It seems that you have a corrupt user partition on your drive which is stopping you from doing a recovery.

What you will need to do is delete the partition(s) on your Gateway by using a system repair utility CD. ERD Commander 2005 or Bart are utilites that will allow you to boot from a CD and then delete the partitions.

You could also use a friend's Windows XP CD just to delete the partitions.

Once this is done, you should be able to re-install your OS (assuming there is no physical damage on the hard disk.

Hope this helps.
