Windows Vista will not install on old computers. If this is your case try installing Windows XP, If this does not work you might want to try Linux (Ubuntu). which will run on almost any old computer with full capabilities.
It is free and you can download it from
http://www.ubuntu.com/

Acer desktop lost my window vista during restoration have no back up disc it keeps shutting down


What your saying is you removed your Recovery Partition? Have you tried a Full Factory Recovery? Remove ALL media DVD, CD, USB, etc. Shut down, unplug, remove battery, plug in , Power on the laptop. Immediately tap the "Alt" and "F10" keys, repeatedly.

My compaq presario sr5030nx is a really horrible desktop computer i have used it for 3 years i am realy farmiliar with it and have browsed site all day trying to find a way to fix or identify my problem...


In this case the good solution would be to reinstall the operating system using a CD/DVD with windows, and to format all local disks. Or, buy a HDD DOC-station, and scan your HDD on an other computer using the antivirus, then delete all infected files. Even your original system would work.

How do you unlock your computer if you forgot the password?


Do you have created the password reset disk ?
If you do, you can sign into safe mode and recover the password.
If you don’t have the windows password recovery disk. you have to take use of the third part utility, you can download it from http://www.windowsloginrecovery.com and the website will show how to recover windows password.

Windows shut down unexpectedly, and when I rebooted, I had lost all my icons, and start tool bar. How to get them back?


  1. Boot the computer using the XP CD. You may need to change the boot order in the system BIOS so the CD boots before the hard drive. Check your system documentation for steps to access the BIOS and change the boot order.
  2. When you see the "Welcome To Setup" screen, you will see the options below This portion of the Setup program prepares Microsoft
    Windows XP to run on your computer:

    To setup Windows XP now, press ENTER.

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

    To quit Setup without installing Windows XP, press F3.
  3. Press Enter to start the Windows Setup. To Repair Install, press ENTER
    note.gifTo Repair Install, press ENTER
    \r\n'); FP_changeProp(/*id*/'layer1',0,'style.borderStyle','double','style.borderWidth','3px','style.padding','5px','style.backgroundColor','#F9F4D5','style.backgroundImage','url(\'edgbkgnd4.gif\')'); FP_changeProp(/*id*/'layer1',0,'style.visibility','visible')" onclick="FP_changeProp(/*id*/'layer1',0,'style.visibility','hidden')" width="15" border="0" height="21" /> do not choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the Recovery Console, press R", (you Do Not want to load Recovery Console). I repeat, do not choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the Recovery Console, press R".
  4. Accept the License Agreement and Windows will search for existing Windows installations.
  5. Select the XP installation you want to repair from the list and press R to start the repair. If Repair is not one of the options, END setup. After the reboot read
  6. Setup will copy the necessary files to the hard drive and reboot. Do not press any key to boot from CD when the message appears. Setup will continue as if it were doing a clean install, but your applications and settings will remain intact.take care god bless

Hello. I am running vista home ultimate 64bit. Manually I am unable to create a restore point. Error message 0x8004230F unexpected error for shadow copy provider. I have check in the computer management...


Sometimes, Windows Vista Ultimate 64bit will not allow to create a restore point as it is self scheduled to create its own restore system restore points.

To over-come this: turn the system off, press the on button and keep pressing the F8 button to get into Safe Mode. Once you are in Safe Mode, go to the System Restore and then create a Restore Point. Once you have done this, shut down and restart the system, you will then see your restore point that you have created.

Hope this helps
