Possible blue screen of Death/HDD password

I have a laptop that is 3 yrs old. It has Windows XP. I bought a new laptop a year ago and stopped using the old one. I'm in the Army and away from my wife and kids and now have use for the old one. It was working fine the last time I used it. But when I tried starting it up after not using it for so long it goes right to a blue screen that says " Enter main HDD password". The problem is I never set up a main HDD password. The guys at Geek Squad want to charge me a $100 dollars and say they cant guarantee that it can be made to work. Are there any backdoors for this? Or do you have any other ideas. This old laptop has all my info from where I did my taxes with TurboTax just before I bought my new laptop and I really need to get to that info. I dont have the money to get it fixed right now. Please help

Remove your plug, and battery,  try opening the back of your laptop, look for the cmos battery, and try removing it for about 1 minute. this should reset your bios, and erase and password that i may have. dont worry, it wont erase any files on your harddisk.
maybe the difficult part would be to spot the cmos battery.  depending on the motherboard of your laptop, some would be very easy to find. some are soldered in the motherboard. Your lucky if you could remove it easily.  battery is about half inch in diameter, looks flat, like a plate.

Malcolm, what exactly do you mean by "royal blue page"? Will your documents still print correctly? It's possible the computer shop turned on one of the Microsoft Windows accessibility options to help you see the screen better, and it is affecting your Microsoft Word.

DBF file lost after OS reinstalled


Some helpful resources for you:

Non-commercial project, which can give you an alternative view to your issue:-
http://www.filerepairforum.com/forum/databases/databases-aa/dbase-iv-clipper-foxpro/429-how-can-i-open-corrupted-dbf-file-via-ms-foxpro

One more method, must be DBF Fix Toolbox - this is shareware software
You may download its demo: http://www.dbf.fixtoolbox.com/ - who knows, apparently it also can resolve the trouble.

Another fresh alternative way

The new database is useless. Drop it and its associated service.
Copy your files, all the database files (control file, redo logs, data, configuration files...) in the new hardisk, if possible at the same location (directories).
Then use oradim to create the service: oradim -new <sid> -startmode manual
Start the service if it is not already started.
Execute sqlplus "/ as sysdba" and try a startup.
If all files were copied in the same location, this should work.

Blue screen


Hello blue screen of death means you have a bad driver
somewhere on the system.

Try to boot up in failsafe mode by pressing F8 under restart
Select to boot with network support.
enter the device manager under graphic and see how old
the driver is.
You can try to renew the driver.
What does the bsod tells you ??
there is typical a failure code.
Try also the manufactures home page in seach for drivers.

If it is a ATI you can download a new driver here:

Do I need Windows XP Mode?
Windows 7 has several built-in tools to help with program compatibility and Windows XP programs should be installed directly on Windows 7. Windows XP Mode runs many older Windows XP productivity programs and that are not natively compatible with Windows 7, thus helping realize cost savings and reduce possible operational downtime by extending the life of existing software. Visit the Windows 7 Compatibility Center to find software that works with Windows 7.
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/compatibility/windows-7/en-us/default.aspx

It's the best of both worlds: The new Windows XP Mode lets you run older Windows XP business software right on your Windows 7 desktop.

Designed primarily with small- and medium-sized businesses in mind, Windows XP Mode comes as a separate download and works only with Windows 7 Professional, Ultimate, and Enterprise. Windows XP Mode also requires virtualization software such as Windows Virtual PC. Both are available free on the Microsoft website.

Hi,

Technically you can copy all the data from one to another hdd but not the operating system

You have to install your operating system (windows, linux or MAC) on your new 500gig hdd and then copy your data from 60gig hdd.

User name & password are incorect


I had the same problem but it was with Simply 2007 running on a Windows XP computer. One day it just said "username and password are incorrect" even though I had just used it the day before with the exact same username and password (I am the administrator). I Googled all kinds of solutions to try, and finally this one worked. I simply did a Windows "System Restore" to the previous day. Once I did that, Simply Accounting allowed me to log in again. Therefore it tells me that the problem is one of two things...either the Windows database engine...or with some sort of Windows Update or other program update that interfered with the login process. The likelyhood is that it's a Windows system file involved in the database engine that was corrupt.

If you don't have automatic System Restore setup on your Windows computer however, then you are out of luck. The only possible solution (I haven't tried it) is to copy all the Simply database files to another working computer that "hopefully" doesn't have the same corrupt system files, and try to install and run the program and database from that computer, it may work.

Good luck
