Windows xp tools

Good morning all. I have some "problem" (pardon my english) with my cpu.When we go to start - run, type 'winmsd' and press enter, we will see the system information window. When we click the 'tools' tab, there's a list of tools will come out such as :
-windows report tool
-update wizard uninstall
-system file checker
-signature verification tool
-registry checker
-automatic skip driver agent
-dr watson
-system configuration utility
-scandisk
-version conflict manager.

My problem is, when i check my computer, there're only 5 items that is
-net diagnostics
-system restore
-file signature verification utility
-directX diagnostic tool, and
-dr watson

So, my question is where are the rest? and how can i get it back? (if it's possible)

By the way, i'm using a Dell Optiplex GX270, Intel P4, 2.66 GHz, Bios Version A03, 512 mb DDR SDRAM & 30gb hard disk.

Hi,, Well what you have is not really a problem, Dell uses an OEM version of windows that is specially designed for the, therefore some of the features just arent there. If you wish to use the you will need to purchase a copy of windows (the same version of the one you are using) or borrow one. use the product key that came **** on a sticker on your system, this will install the windows and then you may register it online. You dont need a fress install, just select repair windows or replace system files.

How can i repair or replace boot.ini in windows xp


Enter Windows XP Recovery Console. The Recovery Console is an advanced diagnostic mode of Windows XP with special tools that will allow you to restore the boot.ini file.


When you reach the command line (detailed in Step 6 in the link above), type the following command and then press Enter.

bootcfg /rebuild


The bootcfg utility will scan your hard drives for any Windows XP installations and then display the results. Follow the remaining steps to add your Windows XP installation to the boot.ini file.


The first prompt asks Add installation to boot list? (Yes/No/All).

Type Y in response to this question and press Enter.


The next prompt asks you to Enter Load Identifier:.

This is the name of the operating system. For example, type Windows XP Professional or Windows XP Home Edition and press Enter.


The final prompt asks you to Enter OS Load options:.

Type /Fastdetect here and press Enter.


Take out the Windows XP CD, type exit and then press Enter to restart your PC.

Assuming that a missing or corrupt boot.ini file was your only issue, Windows XP should now start normally.

I have a dell inspiron 9300 laptop runing windows xp. i want to download the trial version of sony vegas pro 9. do download 32bit or 64bit version --or does it matter? Thanks in advance for your help.


Hello,

Right click on My Computer on your desktop and select Properties. If you have a 64-bit system it should say so in the window that pops up. It would say x64 after the Operating System name or 64 bit near the bottom.If it does not say, it is a 32 bit system.

You can also select Start>Run, type winmsd in the box and press ENTER. In the right pane look for Processor. If it is a 64 bit system the Processor line will start with ia64 or AMD64. If a 32 bit system it will start with x86.

Thanks for using Fixya.

1) scan for adware using another scanner (for eg., ad aware http://www.download.com/Ad-Aware-2008/3000-8022_4-10045910.html?hhTest=1)
Antiviruses can miss some problems, so it never hurts to get a second opinion.

2) Reduce the number of programs that start with Windows, like messengers, file sharing, etc. You can do this from the program options. (for eg, Windows Live Messenger, Ares, Yahoo Mesenger) For startups that you cannot stop in this way, go to Start>run and type "msconfig" (without the quotes) and click on the "startup" tab and uncheck any of these programs you RECOGNIZE and do not need to have start with Windows. (You can always start them from Start>Programs if you need to)
http://www.answersthatwork.com/
This page can help you determine what's necessary and what's not.
3) Go to Start>programs>Accessories>system tools>disk cleanup and run this application. Follow the instructions given.

4) Could be that you need more RAM. XP's supposed to run comfortably on 128 MB of RAM, but recent applications seem to be using more and more as time progresses. If you have 512MB or less, it's a good idea to upgrade regardless.

5) Check for file system problems (not very likely, but just in case) Go to Start>run, type "cmd" (without quotes) and press "enter". At the cursor in the window that opens, type chkdsk c:/f and press enter. Follow instructions given. (this most likely requires a restart)

6) If all else fails, try a system restore to the last time your PC worked reasonably well. (Start>Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore. Follow the instructions)

7) If this doesn't work, a reformat might be quickest way to solve all your problems. You'll need an original copy of Windows XP (unless you want to upgrade to Vista, which has higer hardware requirements) and install disks or files for all your installed programs as well as backups of ypur personal files. Better left to a professional if you're unsure.
