SOURCE: Error 0x400 100 130000 1002 while restoring factory image HP

I am assuming you are trying to reinstall Vista. Apparently, HP's recovery partition is less than perfect and the recovery disc you created is probably worthless. (and you can NOT make another one, they only let you make one!) You are not the only person to have this issue.

Here are some things you can try:
1) Borrow an OEM version of Vista from someone...anyone. It sounds like you are proficient with PC's and maybe you know someone who works in IT. Use your product key (25 digit key code) and you should be able to reinstall.

2) if you like Vista, buy yourself an OEM version. It will not have all the factory (HP, Dell, Acer, whatever) BS on it. It will positively work because your hardware if fine.

3) Put XP on it. Personally, I think Vista is a mess. Microsoft is working on "OS7" and soon Vista will be like "Millennium".

Sorry it's not an easy fix, but glad your hard drive and memory show no errors.

SOURCE: Startup Repair Problem

Ok, as you have probably guessed, the hard drive is failing. It probably has some bad sectors. The solution is to replace the hard drive and re-install the OS and all of your applications. Then there is the question of data recovery on the current drive. Do you have access to a computer with internet and a CD burner? If you do, you can go to http://www.puppylinux.org/downloads/official-releases and download ver. 4.2. This will be an iso download. Burn the iso image to a cd. Once that is done you will be able to boot the laptop with the CD. The puppy linux OS will be loaded into RAM. You will be able to access the hard drive and backup your data on a memory stick. Once that is done, replace the hard drive and start the installation process. If you have the recovery CD(s) from Dell, Windows will be redone just as it was when the laptop was new.

Good luck, and please let me know if I can be of any more assistance.

SOURCE: system configuration data updated ERROR,--Need

Got a backup?

If not, download a Linux Live CD. Boot your machine with it, save all your data to an external drive and then do a complete disk format and re-install. That will be quicker in the long run.

Not sure about that PC, but on Dell, for example, you hit CTRL-F10 (I think) at power-on and it gives you the option of reinstalling the OS from the recovery partition (wiping any unbacked-up data in the process).,,Gateway is probably similar.

The Boot/BCD issue means your 'Boot Configuration Data' is hosed.

Power connection to computer came out during shutdown yesterday. Today, turning on, it will not boot up.


You are going to need a clean boot up disk. You will have to get one mailed to you or you will have to use another computer to download one. This will get you back into a point that you can do a windows restore. This is going to get rid of all programs and start you fresh. I do, however, feel that you disk drive is going out or already shot. You should do a Chkdsk on it. (check disk). This will tell you if it is a hard drive error or not.

Bootmgr missing error on startup


There are a number of possible causes for BOOTMGR errors, including the most common "BOOTMGR is missing" error message.

The most common reasons for BOOTMGR errors include corrupt and misconfigured files, hard drive and operating system upgrade issues, corrupt hard drive sectors an outdated BIOS and damaged or loose IDE cables

Anothe reason you might see BOOTMGR errors is if your PC is trying to boott from a hard drive or flash drive that is not properly configured to be booted from. In other words, it's trying to boot from a
non-bootable source.


This also would apply to media on an optical drive or floppy drive that you're trying to boot from.

make sure there are no disks in cd floppy usb drives



How to Create a Windows 7 System Repair Disc:
http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/2083-system-repair-disc-create.html


"This will show you how to create a Windows 7 system repair disc to use to boot to the system recovery options if you don't have a Windows installation disc, can't find your

Windows installation disc, or can't access the recovery options provided by your computer manufacturer."

or

If you do not have access to either disc: Windows 7 - Repair Disc download
http://neosmart.net/blog/2009/windows-7-system-repair-discs/


a) Insert the Windows 7 System Repair DVD or Installation DVD and reboot.


b) Select the correct keyboard input method and click 'Next'.


Note: If you are using the Windows7 Install DVD then at the 'Install Now' prompt (Do not pick the Install


Now option) instead choose the 'Repair your computer' option located in the lower left of the dispay.


c) The System Repair tool will search for a valid operating system and will report that "Windows found problems with your computer's startup options. Do you want to apply repairs and restart your computer?"


d) Click 'Repair and restart' and reboot again to the Windows 7 System Repair environment.


e) Click 'Next' at the keyboard selection prompt and when the 'System Recovery Options' screen appears verify that the "Use recovery tools that can help fix problems starting Windows" is selected.
Note that on your Dual Boot system there now should be only one operating system listed. Click the 'Next' button.


f) Now from the menu list select the 'Command Prompt' option.


g) At the DOS prompt type the following three commands:


bootrec.exe /fixmbr


bootrec.exe /fixboot (may return an 'Eliment not found' message)


bootrec.exe /RebuildBcd


h) Close the command prompt window and click the 'Startup Repair' option.


i) The repair process may take some time, so wait until the process completes at which point you will see two messages "Windows cannot repair this computer automatically" and "Startup Repair cannot repair this computer automatically".


These messages are the result of the radical changes made by removing the other drive. Ignore the Send/Don't send options.


J) Close this message window by clicking on the X in the upper right corner of the Send/Don't send window. Next click on the 'View advanced options for system recovery and support' option and from the main menu once again click 'Startup Repair'.


This time the repair process may only that a few seconds and when prompted "Startup Repair could not detect a problem", click 'Finish' and run the 'Startup Repair' option one more time, click 'Finish', and then remove the System Repair DVD and click 'Restart'. Reboot the computer.


hope this helps

Ok...so after i did a system restore after finding out that had some viruses and such on my computer, the computer did the system restore completely and successfully, but now there is a pop up that...


You'll have to uninstall the Dell Support software.

Go to Start > Control Panel

Then click on Add or Remove programs, see if it's in the list (Dell support).

If it's not there, then it will be in your Services or Startup, go to Start > Run... type "msconfig" without the quotes. This will open the System Configuration utility.

Go to the Services tab, and check the box that says "Hide all Microsoft services". Now look for a Dell service that is causing the pop-up error, and UNCHECK the box to disable it.

Do the same step again for the Startup tab.

Windows 7 won't bootup, has error recovery. it loads files then nothing. screen is black.


Had that problem a few times myself.
Only way I could fix was to restore back to factory condition.
As you boot, watch bottom of screen closely.
depending on system, Should need to press F2, F10, possibly F12, might even be Del.
Most likely you didn't get restore disk, or have made one.
If you do, insert disk before boot up. System should boot to DvD.
Don't forget once restored to update.
Hope this helps

When i start my pc, it starts well but a page appers telling me to start windows normally. when i click on that then windows starts loading bt after 2 sec the systems gets restarted.


1.You have to do a diagnostics test on your hard drive to check if the there are any bad sectors developed on the hard drive!

2. If your system restart, when you just click your mouse, your system files are probably corrupted and your may have to reinstall the system ie. provided your hard drive has no errors.

Here is an option you can try.
Can you boot your system to "safemode"? & Use the "Dos Prompt" to do a "Check Disk" on your System. ie Run -> "CHKDSK /f/r" (without quotes)

Hope it helps.

Runs slow, i do the basic like defrag, clean disk, delet history. internet files, thing of that nature but my hp is slow like my processor is out dated or my processor is trying to hard to complete simple...


Your computer has only 512MB of RAM.That will just barely run your XP,forget about doing anything else.You need a minimum of 1GB,2GB is even better.Your computer works in RAM not your hard-drive.The hard-drive is for storage,the RAM is for running your programs.
