Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition

1 Answer

Starting vista problems

I have a toshiba A135 Satellite with 1GB RAM
It boots up to the error message "explorer has stopped working"
When I restart with Repair option using the Vista DVD, it says it can't repair the problem automatically
I click on Command Prompt. It goes to the cmd screen. Then I run CHKDSK c: /R
At stage 4 of 5 (when showing 13% complete and 13884 of 167856 files processed) it hangs and does not go forward.
What can I do now?

    I have done as you suggested. Windows comes up but with new problems.

    1)click on the start button and nothing happens.

    2) the icons on my taskbar are not clear anymore

    3) I cannot right-click and get a window from the taskbar anymore

    does your vista disc say service pack 1 on it? if not you cannot do a repair because you most likely have service pack one installed due to windows update.

    did you try to boot up in safe mode? hitting f8 every 2 seconds after booting up

Bad sector in your HDD. Break all partition, install vista again, make partitions with disk management utility or partitionmagic. Compare your present disk amount with actual capacity.

You have no problem with your servicepack or update. Keep informing.

If you have external USB and/or CD disconnect them and try again. Otherwise it could be a fault hard rive - try to boot from an emergency CD (hopefully you created one when you installed Windows).

Hi i have a toshiba satellite pro a200 laptop and i wiped the hard drive now im trying to reinstall vista but vista doesnt have the hard drive driver


Hi,
Usually vista\XP dont required a driver for built in HDD. Confirm whether the HDD is detected properly @ BIOS boot up and proceed with normal installation of Vista. If required get the installation screen shots from internet and proceed.
If this still doesn't resolve your issue, please paste in the exact error message you are getting while installation.
Please come back and rate my solution if it turns to be helpful for you. Thnx

Toshiba Satellite a215-s4747 randomly crashes


Hi!

When you says you run hardwarae diagnostic I guess that it is the hardware diagnostic tools from the computer itself.

Try downloading this software, it is a ISO image, so burn in a CD and boot from that CD.

It will boot up and run a memory diagnostic in DOS mode.

I think that this is a memory problem.

P.S. Did you clean the memory contacts and memory slots in the computer?

Do you have more than one module of memory RAM? In that case try with only one and switch with the second one to see what is the defective module.

WindowsXP Desktop not Opening:


If you mean that your pc constantly restarts, then you may either have a RAM problem, or a PCI Card problem. Start by removing the screw on the back of your computer, The one that is holding down the left side cover if you are looking at it from the front.

Then, simply remove your stick of ram, and put on the pc. Then take off the pc and put back the part in another slot... Put the pc on and see if it boots.

Next, if that does not work, Press the power button and start tapping the F8 key. The Windows Advanced Options Menu appears. If you begin tapping the F8 key too soon, some computers display a "keyboard error" message. To resolve this, restart the computer and try again.
Ensure that the Safe mode option is selected.
Press Enter. The computer then begins to start in Safe mode.

If that does not work, try live help so someone can run you through the process...
