  • axle00699 Feb 24, 2009

    the proper recovery screen comes up but then a windows box with a red dot with a white X is there with the error 04194304 c:\minint\system32\res256\banner.bmp with the option of "ok" or just the black X at the upper right hand of the box. if you do either one the machine restarts

    Does it' say anything else?

    What happens?

    Do you have any choices or does it just stop?

With the Recovery Disk in the DVD drive, just go and do a complete drive wipe and reinstall.

Cannot boot up windows xp or do system recovery


It's easy Megan, just chill, lol!

Look at the back of the computer next to the Windows product key, or up on the side of the computer tower, for the white Service Tag.
In the tag write down what it states next to S/N.

This is the Serial Number.

(DO NOT post on here. Only give to an authorized HP representative)

Now contact HP Support, and ask for the Restoration Disk.
(HP bought out Compaq a long time ago)

In the USA the disk is free. The shipping and handling is not.
$17 for a 5 to 7 day ship, $24 for a 2 to 3 day ship.

In the US call 1-800-474-6836
24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

http://www8.hp.com/us/en/contact-hp/phone-assist.html#section1

Outside the US use HP Support Worldwide,

http://www8.hp.com/us/en/contact-hp/ww-contact-us.html

When you get the disk, turn your computer on, and put the disk in the optical drive's tray. (CD/DVD drive)
When asked choose Repair. (Non-Destructive Installation)

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

When I try to do recovery, two messages pop up. One says cannot load C:\minint\system32\Res256\Btn.bmp and the other reads C:\minit\system32\Res256\banner.cmp


Looks like its may be an issue with a graphics matter. Since .bmp is a graphic image. But that does not assist you does it. Now here is what I would do in a situation such as yours. I would completely format that drive using a format program such as D/Ban or a free format program that will completely load at the start up then erase everything on your disk. Then I would try the process all over again to see if this solves the issue. If that does not solve the issue then I would get another recovery disc from the factory because that one may be faulty. Just a suggestion you can get Killdisk freeware click here.

C:\minint\system32\restore.log mising


Restore points are located in C:/Windows/system32/restore.
You have an unusual error message which talks about C:/minint folder. Seems like this is a virus issue. It would be better if you run virus scan for your computer.
Also run a system utility software RegInOut to refresh your PC.

It seems that there is an virus on your computer try the below steps

Download and install: HiJackThis. http://www.majorgeeks.com/download3155.html

(Always create a Folder for HiJackThis anywhere but your Temp/Temporary Internet Folders or Desktop. A good place to make a folder would be in My Documents, as this is where it will save the backup files needed if there's a problem.)

Then doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Do A System Scan And Save Log". Make sure all Windows and Browsers are closed.
When the scan is finished, best to save your text file in the same folder as where you put HiJackthis.


IMPORTANT!!!
Create a New Topic and include a fresh HJT log in the HiJackThisLog Help Forum and Copy/Paste the info from your saved Hijackthis log file into your new topic.

A Moderator/ Security Team Analyst will give you instructions.

My desktop shut down and is asking me to re install a 32 windows file. What is this and how do I fix it?


Hi, This normally means that a windows file from the system32 folder is missing or corrupt. You will have repair that by using your operating system cd and go to repair when prompted. If this does not work you may have to install a clean copy of your operating system.

I am installing a recovery disk for an emachines computer and i get error message stating that the system 32hal.dll is missing or corrupt. i cant get back to the windows screen to install the missing file...


You have to start your PC with the XP cd-rom install disk, if you have
one.

Then, when you come to the screen with the following option displayed :


To repair a Windows XP installation using
Recovery Console, press R.


Then press [R] to start 'Recovery Console'

When confronted by a prompt asking you for Administrator password - just
press [ENTER]

Once in RC has started - type the following command :


expand x:\i386\hal.dl_ c:\windows\system32\hal.dll


(where [x:] is your cd drive-letter)

*NB If SP3 is installed - then the command you type must be :


copy c:\windows\ServicePackFiles\i386\hal.dll c:\windows\system32


....instead, as the files are of two different revision levels
(versions).


Then reboot.

Cant get past error even tryed to repair windows or how can i install reinstall


Try booting into safe mode by pressing F8 when boot up starts. Choose safe mode. When it's booted up, right click on "my Computer" and choose properties. Click on advanced and choose the advanced tab. Go to performance and change the settings of Virtual Memory to what Windows Recommends.Restart.

Want to reset to Factory Default


When the computer is just starting up, press the 'delete' button. That will take you to 'setup'. Go thru that to find your 'reset to default', it may be in more place than one. It would be really good if you could get the install disks for your computer, then you could do a re-install of Windows. That will get rid of everything but Windows, so if you want anything else, you will need that disk too.

hp should have an option on your boot menu (viewed by pressing f8) to boot to system partition. Try that and see what kind of options are there.

Code purple error on hp 1410n


"Code Purple" on an Windows XP system: This Worked for me!:

Okay, I have read and read and read, on this site, and on others, trying to fix the "Code Purple" problem. Many of the answers ALMOST worked for me; but I, like many others, couldn't get to the H: drive to del the key file. At the C:\ prompt, I couldn't CD to H:\. So what I did was to give the DEL command from the C:\ prompt. See below for the 2 detailed procedures. The first is for those who have the Recovery Disk Set, the other is for those without the set. Good Luck!

Procedures for recovery from "Code Purple" on a Windows XP system:

Procedure to recover from "Code Purple" WITH a Recovery Disk Set:

1. Load the first system recovery disk into the CD-ROM drive
2. Press R for the recover console
3. Press Alt + D to bring up the command prompt*
4. at the C:\minint\system32> prompt, type "del h:\hp\bin\configcheck" (without the quotation marks) and press Enter
5. At the "Are you sure?" prompt, type "y" (without the quotation marks) and press enter
6. At the prompt, type "exit" (without the quotation marks) and press Enter
7. Press Alt + Q
8. Press Q to quit the Recovery Window (The PC will automatically begin to boot. You should now be free of the Vastly Evil Code Purple.)

*I have found that there is no need to Select "Advanced Options" prior to pressing Alt + D.


Procedure to recover from "Code Purple" WITHOUT a Recovery Disk Set:

If the Recovery Partition on your hard drive is intact, this should work:

1. Turn on PC and repeatedly press F10 (pause for a second between key presses) until the Recovery Screen comes up
2. Press R for the recover console
3. Press Alt + D to bring up the command prompt*
4. at the C:\minint\system32> prompt, type "del h:\hp\bin\configcheck" (without the quotation marks) and press Enter
5. At the "Are you sure?" prompt, type "y" (without the quotation marks) and press enter
6. At the prompt, type "exit" (without the quotation marks) and press Enter
7. Press Alt + Q (The PC will automatically begin to boot. You should now be free of the Vastly Evil Code Purple.)
