If you have a restoration partition still on the hard drive perform a clean install. You will have to restart the computer and press repeatedly on some key (depends on the computer you have) to initiate the recovery.
If you have the recovery media (DVD or CDs) configure your computer to BOOT from the CD-Drive first. Put the recovery DVD in the drive and reboot. You will be given instructions on the screen. You can always say NO or Cancel.
The re-installation will reformat the hard drive, making you lose all information stored on it.

Sony Vaio VGC-LT15E startup problem in normal mode.. once loading, windows never completely boots up. but, safe mode is OK... I want to think is related to the video card, anyone knows anything about...


What makes you suspect the Graphics? What OS are you using? Any updates? "windows never completely boots up"? Clarify a bit. Can you do a restore/recovery?

It sounds like the memory card got corrupted. If the memory card shows no files, there are no files. I'm sorry, but they're gone. Are you SURE the pictures aren't on your computer? Most cameras delete the pictures AFTER it copies them to your computer.

How do I erase all the pictures from a Nikon memory card? I'd like to wipe the memory card clean while it is in the printer slot.


That's not a good idea. If you have stored the pics safely on your computer, you can completely erase the card in the camera by going into the menu and finding "format"...follow the on-screen instructions.

Typewriter won't erase letters completely.


Correction tapes do have a shelf life and can dry out. You should try replacing the correction tape and see if it is better. If that does not fix it, does the tape lift up high enough to cover the entire letter? If not, you have a lifting problem and will need a tech to fix it.

Fault code P1000 [18,2,10,0],Ford Fiesta 2005


P1000 means that you or someone has disconnected the battery,and the car has not been driven far / long enough for the computer to relearn its stratagies.
Engine light could be the fault of the speed sensor, or wiring to the sensor.

Toshiba M115-3094 start up problems


Okay it sounds like you need to reinstall windows. However, doing so will erase everything on your hard drive. So we need to get that data off your hard drive. You can do this either by purchasing an internal hard drive to usb cable and hooking it up to another computer or by booting with a bootable linux distro, connecting a flash drive and copying the info over that way. Once you have the data safe, you can try booting from your XP disc and try the repair option; this will remove the windows files and leave your data in tact but you should really back it up first.

Also you may want to run a chkdsk on the drive; that may help solve the problem.

It's you restore disk by the sound of it.
You can usually just put the disk that you made in to the drive and restart the computer.
If you can't do it that way then there may be a program on the computer that runs and reads the disk you made to restore everything from within Windows.
