Dear helpdesk, I am having a problem with my Microsoft Vista Home Premium OS, the problem I encounter is rebooting continuously without logging into my user account log on. It also say, start up repair...


This message is telling you that the hard disk windows is on is corrupted beyond window's ability to fix it. While it is very slightly possible that formatting the disk and performing a totally fresh install may take care of the problem temporarily, it is a sure sign that if the hard disk is not totally dead already, it is heading that way now. Even if things appear to run perfectly fine after formatting to do a fresh install it's only a matter of time before it dies again. The best solution would be to replace the hard drive entirely. Good news is that of all the parts of your system that could have died, the hard drive is far from the most expensive, and considering the age of the system, even a cheap drive should be a step up in size from what you had previously.

Yes expert ntldr missing


It means that your computer is missing a file that windows xp needs to run boot properly or is missing a program that your home edition xp needs. Repairing the OS or windows xp home edition by means of your xp instalation cd will do the job. Just insert your xp installation disk to your cd/dvd rom and select install windows xp home edition. Then select ( repair ), and so on let it finish repairing . Once your system rebooted, let it run without pressing enter or space bar. Just watch and let your computer do the job. This will probably solve your boot problem. But before doing all of this, please check your IDE or SATA cable and also the power cable that is connected to your hard drive. Try to unplug and plug again to ensure a good connection. If this won't work, you can proceed repairing Your windows xp installation or reinstalling a new xp operating system. Have a nice day and i hope i was in any help to you friend.

I have installed Windows 7 Ultimate just the other day, for the second time. I am about to throw this pc out the window. It worked for a good day and a half. I worked on it doing my quicken files and...


Sounds like a bad boot sector,to fix this try booting from your windows 7 disk.To do that reinstall the disk into a cd rom drive and reboot the system,as the system starts to reboot tap the Esc key.Doing that will bring up the Bio's.Use the arrow keys to get to the Boot section,Once there set the Cd rom that has the disk in it as the first boot device,then save and exit.The system will reboot from the disk,you'll see a lot of scrolling words,that's the boot loader reinstalling.The system should now boot as normal and you can remove the Cd from the drive you will not need it to restart again,the system will see that the CD is not in the drive and will automatically find the C drive for booting purposes.
Hope this helps,good luck

The error code BI0HD-4 is a hard disk error. You need to delete all partitions on your hard disk and create new ones and format them
This will solve the problem.

Good luck and have a great day!

XP crash, can I recover my files without reboot/loss of data?


If this just happed, nothing was deleted or installed, I would try to run Spinrite before you go down the path of a rebuild. it maybe possible to restore this file with Spinrite. I have done this before. Spinrite is pricey but can be used on other PC's for drive maintenance.

IDE-disk not found on linspire5.0.59


Linspire may have caused you to get a hard drive failure possibly. It may have one of the Linux bugs where it does hard drive seeks way too often and causes it to die out faster. These seem like the symptoms of a dieing hard drive.

Hello,

we have one type of method to solve this problem. but, not regularly.

if you have any other administrator account, you can log in to this and work with your account.

or

if you did not enter any administrator authentication(password), when the windows xp was installed, you can easily manage this.
press CTRL + ALT + DEL keys simultaneously (two times) and type the username as "administrator". then enter without giving a password.

or

you can connect your hard disk with any other hard disk. boot through the other hard disk. then you will see your disk drives on the another disk. Try to delete the "SAM" file on your os (C:\windows\system32\). (Only on your hard disk).
then reboot via your hard disk. now, you have no need to enter any username or password. just enter and go to the windows desktop


if it is not possible for you, just go for password recovery software

thank you,

Long booting up in takes 2-3 hrs. before my OS start


Two to three hours is a long time! It sounds like your hard drive is getting ready to crash.

If your computer is running, click Start and, in the search box, type

eventvwr

and press enter. (If you have XP, click Start -> Run and type eventvwr).

Under Windows Logs, click System. On the right side, click Source. All the events will sort by source. Scan the list for any "disk" errors. If you are getting disk errors, your hard drive is crashing. You should either take your computer to a competent professional to get the hard drive imaged, or purchase a new hard drive and do the imaging.

My computer will not reboot


this will either relate to a hard disk fault or a corrupt driver or registry file, if you cannot get into safe mode, or last known good configuration, you may have to run a windows repair using your XP cd
