My windows media player will not let me burn cd's anymore. It says to verify that the burner is connected properly.


I had that same problem with windows 7. I could not burn cds from windows media player and I thought it was a problem with the OS. But when I used an external drive that I use to repair or set up new systems, I had no problem burning cds. So, try another burner and see if that might solve your problem.

Windows 7 Recovery Options


Source: <a href="http://www.windows7password.net"><span style="font-weight: bold;">Windows 7 Password Reset</span></a><br />Tired of having program installing problems with Windows 7? Read on inside to see if we can't cure your woes.<br /> Boldly Going Where None Have Gone Before Windows 7 is still in its baby-steps beta phase, with what is assumed to be the first release candidate having made its mark in the land of torrents just last week. However, what happens when you encounter a problem with software that hasn't been tried and tested yet in the field by those on the front lines testing the beta? You do the only logical thing - retreat and recover.<br /> <img src="Windows-7-Recovery-Options.jpg" /> In this regard Windows 7 offers a bevy of recovering options - for this article, we'll be analyzing the two most practical ones:<br /> System Restore If there's one thing newer versions of Windows have incorporated astoundingly well, it is the ability to system restore to just about any point in the past. Now, so long as the problem you've been having is relatively recent, you'll be able to be back in business in no time.<br /> Just follow these steps to getting your system back to the way it's supposed to be running:<br /> <ol> <li>Go to Start &rarr; Programs &rarr; Accessories &rarr; System Tools &rarr; System Restore</li> <li>As a new feature in Windows 7, your computer analyzes the best point in the past to go to, in order to solve any issues you're having - just be patient, it'll take a second.</li> <li>After the system restore tool has looked into your restore points, it'll suggest the best one to return to &rarr; if you know that point is compromised, select the option to "see more restore points", if the point is good however, initiate the system restore.</li> <li>This next step can take a few minutes, so you might want to work on something else - your computer is rebuilding itself back to what it used to be before things went horribly wrong.</li> <li>Assuming the restore went well, you should boot back up to find your desktop waiting for you and working well.</li> <li>If the restore didn't go well, you'll want to go to our second featured way to restore Windows 7.</li></ol> Ultimately, for those users who aren't too familiar with computers, this method is user friendly and tends to work in about 75-80% of all cases. However, when you tinker with computers as much as I do (and I bet many of you do), this option simply isn't enough, which is why you should try...<br /> Making a Boot-Up CD (or USB Drive) Diagnostically speaking, a boot CD or USB drive is the most valuable tool in your current arsenal for tackling your problem. Even more importantly, the boot CD also includes several tools that can fix and repair hard drives and networks - most important to helping you resolve the problem after you've diagnosed it.<br /> There are two essential boot CDs you need to resolve any problem:<br /> - The Ubuntu Boot CD: http://releases.ubuntu.com/intrepid/ (FAQ: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/LiveCD)<br /> - Ultimate Boot CD for Windows: http://www.ubcd4win.com/<br /> The tools on the disk include everything necessary to run from the CD and continue your diagnosis of the computer's problems. The pros are quite simple - it's extremely simple to make, resolves practically any software related problem and works off a network as well.<br /> If you're hard-pressed for time, go for the System Restore before you make the LiveCD or the Boot CD. This will ensure that if the problem is easily fixable, it'll get done quickly.<br /><br />Some body may <a href="http://www.windowspasswordsrecovery.com" style="font-weight: bold;">forgot Windows 7 Logon password</a>, they can follow this tips - <br /> <ul> <li><a href="http://www.windows7password.net/how-to-reset-windows-7-password/">How To Reset Windows 7 Password</a></li></ul>

How do I do a factory reset from safe mode with command prompt? windows xp


Restoring Windows XP operating system can be performed in DOS mode if XP's system restore tool cannot be accessed because of booting issues or when the XP recovery CDs are unavailable. There are two steps to this procedure: first, the XP system restore tool must be accessed using the DOS menu and second, the actual XP system restore is performed.

Start the computer and press the F8 key when the manufacturer's logo appears but before the Windows XP logo appears. Scroll through the menu options using the down arrow key. Select "Safe mode with a Command prompt" and hit the Enter key. Type in the administrator ID and password. Hit "Enter." Type in this code in the command prompt box to access the XP system restore tool: %systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe. Hit "Enter." The XP system restore tool will open. b> How to Restore Windows XP b> Click "Restore my Computer to an Earlier Time" when the XP system restore tool starts. Click "Next." Choose a restore point before your operating system began to malfunction. Click "Next" and "OK." Click "Next" to begin the XP restoration process. Do not turn off the computer or attempt to stop the system restore tool, as this may damage the hard drive. The system restore tool will automatically restart the computer when it has finished restoring the operating system. Hope this helps.

Restore Hardrive to Factory Settings, Missing Hidden Partition


Yes Claudia you are right. When you wiped the hard drive you deleted the partition that contained the systen restore (factory restore). You will have to purchase a new copy of Vista. It will not contain all of the other programs that came with your computer originally.
Before you installed Windows 7 it clearly states that you have to back up your system before you install it on your hard drive.
Why didn,t you keeep windows 7, if I may ask? If you made a copy of it (which you had to do when you insatlled it) reinstall it and use it. Microsoft will let you purchase it for $50.00, which is a lot less that what it will cost you to purcase Vista Home Premium.

Packard bell restore new Hdu


From parkard bell suppport website Quote

"Step 4 - Re-installing your software
Call the help desk and ask them to guide you through the
ExtHS process.
Please have your Recovery CDs to hand when you call
the Easy Repair line.

Once you have completed the ExtHS process you will
need to re-install Windows and the other software supplied
with your Packard Bell computer. To do this follow the
steps below:
1. Disconnect all peripheral devices (web cam, printer,
scanner, broadband modem etc.).
2. Insert the Packard Bell Master CD 1 / DVD in the top
CD / DVD drive and restart your computer.
3. The CD will load and display the following message:
Please refer to the section headed Packard Bell
Recovery Program in your user’s guide for instructions
on this utility. Press OK if you want to continue
or Cancel to return to DOS.
4. Press the letter O on your keyboard to continue.
5. You will see a menu with options. Please select option 1
“Standard System Restore”
by pressing the 1 key on
your keyboard.
6. A warning message about data loss will be displayed.
Press the letter O to continue.
7. The process will take around 40 minutes. Once this is
done you will need to restart your PC. Remove the CDs
and store them in a safe place.
8. If there was a Software Library DVD supplied with your
PC you can use this to install the extra software that was
supplied with your computer. Insert this into the drive
and follow the onscreen instructions.
9. Finally, you will need to install any additional devices
(web cam, printer, etc.) and software by following the
instructions supplied with them."

The quick restore dosen`t work


What operating system you are using before installing windows xp. If it is windows 98, Your restore cd will restore windows 98. if you want to restore to factory settings pls boot from the restore cd and format the harddisk. Becareful, this will erase your entire data on the harddisk which cannot be recover. If you are using licenced (not pirated) windows xp boot from it and reinstall windows xp so that you can run the os smoothly. But in either case becarefull when you are formating, it will destroy entire data and you may endup in soup. feel free to revert back for further quiries
