It says this : Recorvery,your pc must be repaired! Error code: 0xc000000.You'll need to use the recovery tools on your installation media. If you dont have any installation media(like a disc or usb de


WAIT!!

Everybody settle down! There's no need for violence!

(Listening to the background audio in the video, lol!)

Slowly take a deep breath.............OK, now slowly exhale.
Gently rub your temples a little bit.

(And GET that guy in the audio SOME help, lol!)

Better? OK.



YES. You will need the Restoration Disk. (Restore Disk, whatever)

Really? Huh. Never heard of them.

Generally you want to get the Restoration Disk from THE computer manufacturer. Not the 'dealer'.

Do I assume it's Acer? (Due to the name on the monitor)

Now THAT, might be a problem.

(Get the guy in the background audio to get the disk, lol!
"What? SURE, here sir. Just settle down. Here's the disk!" )

New computer? Like...how old?
Less than 6 months, it should be covered.

No, not under Easyjack,....I mean Easy Home......but from Acer themselves.

http://www.acer-group.com/public/index/services.htm

Have the Serial Number off of the back of the computer, (Or up on the side of the computer tower), written down.
S/N = Serial Number

[ONLY give to an authorized Acer representattive.
Do NOT post on a worldwide forum ]

Turn on computer, install disk in optical drive tray. (CD/DVD drive)
When asked choose Repair.
Non-Destructive Installation.

My product key sticker is faded,and computer asking for it,what can i do? i bought dell inspiron 1501,and vista disc is legal,but won't lemme in.


Unfortunately there's no easy way to fix this on your own. You will need a call to either Dell or Microsoft if you want to get a legit product key again since yours is faded beyond use. I would try Dell first as they MAY do it for free (though with such an old system they may not) but even if they do charge it should be considerably less than a typical Microsoft call. You can reach Dell support 24/7 at 1-877-293-1197.

I have had to replace my hard drive on my pc how can i get my music back on to pc from my ipod and back into i tunes


Backing up your iTunes library to a CD or DVD To burn a CD (CD-R or CD-RW), your computer must have a compatible CD burner. To burn a DVD (DVD-R or DVD-RW), your computer must have a compatible DVD burner. Check in iTunes Preferences to see if a drive is compatible. See below for steps.
To create your backup disc
  1. Choose File > Library > Back up to Disc.
  2. Select the option you want from the resulting dialog and click Back Up.
  3. The two options you can select from are:
    • Back up entire iTunes library and playlists
    • Back up only iTunes Store purchases
    Whichever of these two options you choose, note that you can also choose "Only back up items added or changed since last backup" to perform an incremental backup.
  4. Insert a blank disc (CD or DVD) into your computer's optical drive. iTunes will scan the disc and begin burning.
  5. Note: If the disc you insert does not have enough space to hold all of the content you will be backing up, a dialog will appear asking whether you wish to backup to multiple discs. You can click Data Discs to continue.
iTunes burns the number of items that fit on one disc and then asks you to insert subsequent discs to continue burning the remaining files. Don't eject a disc while a backup is in progress.
Spoken programs purchased from the Audible.com website are not backed up.
Discs you create using the iTunes backup feature can be used only to restore; they can't be played in a CD or DVD player.

Restoring from a backup disc
  1. Open iTunes.
  2. Insert your backup disc.
  3. iTunes will ask whether you want to restore from this disc. Click Restore.
Check drive compatibility
  1. Choose a playlist on the left side of the iTunes window.
  2. Click the Burn Disc button on the bottom right corner of iTunes.
  3. If the drive is listed, it's compatible.

That option is the built in Windows restore, Not the system recovery that you need.
You should of been given either a windows disc or recovery/factory restore disc with your computer. OR it will have asked you to make a recovery disc when you first used your computer.

If you have none of these you will need to buy one. Recovery discs are about £15.
You may also wish to get a copy of windows to start from a fresh instalation

System restore emachines T3504 disc missing, emachines no longer offers disc! computer is not that old! help! my daughter is heartbroken! i need the disk to complete a system restore.


Is their files that need to be retrieved from the computer? If you were doing a restore they would be lost. You have other options. Your best option is to just purchase a copy of windows xp and install a fresh copy of windows. you will still have to find the drivers on the internet and download and install the. All of this work should really be done by someone who is computer savvy but its really not that difficult.
Let me know if you have other questions.
Thanks,
Lee

Delete operating system


Use the restore disk that came with the 4505 to restore it , then upgrade it to 98 with an upgrade disk. These can be found online still of ya search around or at a neighbors house *wink*
I believe the 5190 disks wil not work as they have the incorrect drivers for the other system.

Restore Disc


You can purchase the restore disks from Compaq directly if they still have any in stock. You can go to their website.  I would not recommend reinstalling 98 on the computer. You would be better off wiping off the system and installing xp on it being that 98 is old and no longer supported.

 

Hope this helps you
