You must set the "Service" to "Automatic" here are some instructions. And a link to a M$ KB article about it. support.microsoft.com/kb/302796 Start the Group Policy Editor (gpedit.msc) Navigate to Computer Configuration/Administrative Templates/System/System Restore Set Turn off System Restore and Turn off Configuration to "Disable" Right click on My Computer and Select "Manage". Navigate to Services and Applications/Services Navigate to System Restore Service and double click On the General tab set [Startup Type] to "Automatic" using the drop down list Click the Start button to start the service. Close the Computer Management console Return to System Restore in Group Policy Editor and configure both to "Not Configured" Close Group Policy Editor and reboot the system. After the reboot is complete, right click My Computer, select Properties and the tab for System Restore will have been restored. Configure it to your individual needs.

Disable touchpad


Hi
look for a FN + some key (F3-F12) combination to turn the touch pad off, there can also be a button next to the power button to switch touchpad on and off.
You can also try to disable it using windows itself by right clicking the touchpad software (by the system clock )and in it's settings look for an option to deactivate the internal touchpad.
Hope this helps.

Boot to Safe Mode, by pressing F8 during boot. Then try disabling startup programs. Go to Start > Run (search in Win 7) and type MSConfig. In Startup tab, uncheck anything that you don't want Windows to load automatically. It will make Windows boot faster and use less resources while running. This just disables them in startup. Programs will still load, but when only you initiate.



Remove all USB attached devices like drives.
You may need to roll back system with System Restore. Under Safe Mode (press F8 during boot and choose Safe Mode).

Win 7 - Start > Search type System Restore.
XP - Is Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Restore. Now choose a date prior to problem. You may have to try a few dates.
Uninstall last program(s) that was installed, again in safe mode.

There is not a bios partition, as the bios is a firmware on the mother board. You need to press the key specified early during boot up, before the system seeks the hd for load.

After win xp sp2 installation my c700 notebook pc keyboard malfunctioning


Your keyboard uses a driver(small pieces of sftware). Windows might have corrupted the driver with no intentions. You can get into safe mode by pressing F8 on some models and you can either restore just before the update or uninstall the knowledge base update that caused it.
