Hey,

Clean the cd/dvd and try again. if it still doesn't work try skipping over the file. if you can't you will need a new cd that works properly.


Let me know if you need anything else.


Thanks,
Ekse

Tip

Windows startup does not complete.


Hi.
If The BIOS is showing initial splash screen, and completing POST test correctly, but Windows Startup does not complete, and you are in one of the following situations:

  • You get a black screen with a cursor blinking.
  • You get a black screen with test or command prompt.
  • You have a blue screen with a warning message.
  • Windows keep restarting.
  • Windows is freezing.


Any of the condition described must occur before getting to login screen or to Windows desktop, or the problem is other than the one described here.

If you get a message saying Operative system not found you may also be in same situation. Only in that case the disk may also be physically damaged, and you may have lost your data, or disk may need replacement.


The conditions above usually tell us that the Windows system files needed for Startup are corrupted.
Windows cannot load the files anymore and will hang on with the cursor blinking.
When this happens you need to reinstall the operative system.

To start you can try loading the system in safe mode, by pressing F8 on Startup.

If the computer is starting in safe mode, try doing a system restore to a recent date before the problem started. This will be faster than installing a fresh system, and most of your settings will be preserved.

You may find out that when the system does not load, most computer will not even start in safe mode.

Check also that there is no CD, DVD or floppy inside the computer, also disconnect any connected USB device, apart mouse and keyboard, and attempt starting the computer again.

If all that does not work, then you will need to reinstall Windows.

Installing Windows is not a complicate operation, all you need is the computer recovery disk, or a Windows install disk valid for the licence number printed on the Microsoft Certificate of Authenticity sticker.

If you use a recovery disk, remember to choose partial recovery, so that the original data contained in the hard disk won't be deleted.

Using Windows generic disk you will need to choose Update Recovery if asked, install the system on top of the same directory (eg: C:Windows), and you will also need to choose Leave System File Intact, when asked by Windows setup.
Using a Windows generic disk you may also need to install additional drivers, that usually are available for download from the manufacturer website.
Even choosing a partial recovery , or an update install, some of the installed software may be affected, and may need a fresh setup.
Another way to proceed is installing a copy of windows into a different folder (eg. C:/Windows000), and choosing to leave system file untouched.
This will reinstall system files hosted in root folder, and sometimes may bring back to life the old system.
In that case you will be asked what system to start from Windows boot manager on Startup, your old system will be the second one.

Using this method is better to remove the new installation Startup from boot manager after installing and testing that the old system is back at work. This is done editing the system hidden file Startup.Ini, hosted in root folder. The file is a text file.

If you have important data inside the hard disk, it is always advisable to copy all data onto an external media. Even if the procedures described normally do not delete your data, when doing maintenance on a computer there is always the chance to loose data.
If the computer is not starting because of a system problem, the data can only be recovered using a boot disk, or physically removing the hard disk drive from computer, and connecting it to a different computer (an external enclosure may help).


This same instructions broadly apply to all recent Windows operative system, Windows seven setup is slightly different from the procedure described here.

Cant able to install ms office 2007 shows it needs office.en.us/dwtrig20.exe file


The file that your installation setup is looking for is the "Doctor Watson" launcher (dwtrig20.exe). From the error message you posted, setup is looking for the file on you installation media in the U.S. English directory "office.en-us".

What all of this means is that your installation media is probably corrupt. If this is a legal copy of Office, you should be able to get a replacement disk from MS at no cost. If you have a friend with a copy of the disk, you can borrow it to complete your installation. You would just use your own registration code.

If this is a pirated copy of Office, corrupt files are common. You're on your own in that case

How do I fix Files/setup/setup.INI is missing or invalid error


You can copy/paste all the Files onto your hard disk, get the setup.ini file from another home edition CD and copy it into the files/setup folder. If the rest of the files fail to copy too then your setup CD is physically damaged. COntact Microsoft and they will charge you a nominal fee to ship out the replacement disk.

When i install fifa 10 or fifa 08 my pc show a problem that, it cannot read the group1.cab file. and then show the error code is 2350


that is basically a disc error. it means that the file named in the error message (.cab) file is not recognized or simply the system cannot copy and extract files from it to complete the installation.
resolution:
Create a folder in your local disk and name it Disk-1 then copy all the files of your cd-installer to that folder. do the same for DIsk 2 and so on. When during copying of files to your local disk produces error like "cannot read from device", it means that the source cd is defective with scratches and you need to buy a new installer. when no errors are detected, then open and run the setup.exe file in Disk-1.
