Hi, Troubleshoot System Restore:

Some common problems that could cause System Restore not to work properly and their solutions include the following:

• There is less than 200 MB of free space available on the computer—free up some space on the hard drive by deleting unused files or images. 
• After rebooting, the restoration is unsuccessful—choose an earlier restore point and try again. 
• Restoration was denied due to non-administrator status—log out and then back in as an administrator. 
• The System Restore Service is not running—Open Administrative Tools, click Computer Management, and then click Services and Applications. Click Services, and double-click System Restore Services from the list. Verify the service is started and running. If not, under Service status, click Start and change the startup type to Automatic.

*Your vote is highly appreciated. Thanks in advance. Drop me a comment if you have questions or problems. I will assist you.

Error messgae trying to use system restore to get rid of program stopping my computer from starting get error mess age class not registered OX80040154 please close system restore and try again


Go back further in your system restore to an earlier date until normal operation is restored. If this still doesn't work, buy yourself a new hard drive. Put your operating system and programs you use on the new drive and copy file from your old drive mounted in the slave position to copy file from your old drive. Once you have done this, format your old drive and keep it for a spare. Your new drive will have none of the old problems any more. Be careful about the WEB sites you go to and use a quality anti-virus program to screen future problems.

My 13 year old son laptop need be reset like new


There are a couple possible solutions to your problem. If the computer will still turn on and load windows, and I assume you are using Windows XP, you can try doing a system restore. To do this, go to Start, Programs, Accessories, System Tools, and select System Restore. If system restore is enabled, you should be able to choose a date in the past when the laptop was working properly and restore the computer to that date. If you want to completely reload windows, you will need a Windows XP installation disc. Load the disc in the CD or DVD player and reboot the computer. You should see a screen asking you to press any key to boot from CD, go ahead and press Enter. You will now enter setup where you can reformat the hard drive and reload windows XP. Follow the on-screen instructions to delete any old partitions, and then create a new partition and format it using NTFS. The windows XP installation will continue after the hard drive is formatted. If, when you reboot the computer with the installation disc in the drive, you are not prompted to boot from CD, you may need to reboot and press F2 or F12 to change the boot selection to the CD or DVD drive so it will load the CD first before it tries to load your original Windows installation.

It just stops when you turn off and on agains sometimes the windows moving thing< lol because I do not know what it is called just stops also. Please help a 67 year old computer wannabe! Thank you...


Hello.

It's great that you are a 67 year old computer wannabe ... I didn't grow up in the computer age, either.

Anyway, I think you are saying that your system freezes ???

If so ... either you have a memory issue or operating system problem.

First, disconnect all cables. Be certain to dispel static electricity by touching metal. Remove the battery and memory cover. Try reseating (removing and reinserting) your memory (try one module at a time to test).

If still a problem, boot your system to Safe Mode (press F8 repeatedly). Go to System Restore and choose a date when your system worked OK. Note: with System Restore, everything, including your documents and other files you saved on the hard drive, will roll back to that date.

If you can't access System Restore by Safe Mode, try Offline System Restore:
1. Boot from the DVD
2. Select the Language
3. Click on "Repair your Computer" on the Install now screen
4. Click next on the System Recovery Options screen
5. Click on System Restore.
6. Choose the date to which you want to restore

If still a problem, the last choices are Factory Restore and reinstall. Accessing Factory Restore (restores to the factory settings and will wipe out anything that you have installed or saved on your PC), is dependent on your hardware manufacturer. Boot your system and press F10, F11, Alt+F10, or Ctrl+F11 to access Factory Restore. Follow the prompts.

If still not resolved, you'll probably need to reinstall your operating system.

And ... if I'm off the mark as far as your problem is concerned, please let me know.

Hope this helps.

Please run system restore to factory default but backup your documents first.

Try another browser like Opera or Firefox.

Good luck.

System restore stopped working


try doing error disk checking (checkdisk) it will tell if the restore files are corrupted, since you mentioned it shuts down on restoration.

or try restoring to another date.

My laptop stopped


It could be the switch, but most likely it's just a glitch. Try a system restore, you may have to go back a couple of restore points, but this should clear it up. If it doesn't, get back with me and I'll walk you through the settings for this. If you want to try the settings yourself, you can find them in the display properties, screen saver tab, power button towards the bottom, and you will find settings for for stand by.

Re touchpad behaving oddly!


Debbie, I can't find anything on this that would cause it with a keyboard command. Lets do this; lets roll back the system to the last restore point before your one year old confused us both. LOL....
Click on Start Menu and then select HELP & Support
in the search box type SYSTEM RESTORE
when the options come up look for RUN SYSTEM RESTORE WIZARD and follow the prompts to the day before the issue was created, or the closest date available before the problem.
When the system rolls back we will see if that fixes your problem. (It's not as scary as it sounds)
Let me know if this works for you! //Don
