Hi, The only way I can think off here is to re-install the O/S. Assuming its XP then run your XP disk and as setup runs choose the SECOND PROMPT TO RUN A REPAIR TO WINDOWS. If you choose the first prompt It wont do anything, if you choose to just reinstall you will loose all your data. the second prompt will appear to completely reinstall but you will save your existing files. Goodluck mistyman

Hi guys, my notebook 0xc00000e9 this problem and how I want to save or return all my program really work? I need to go back but I do not want to format? need to save my back as folders? I hope you...


This error indicates a corrupt registry. Luckily, when Windows is installed, a pristine copy of the registry hives is also installed and it remains untouched...replacing your corrupt registry hives with these ones will allow you to boot your operating system again. You may have to reinstall a few programs and drivers but all of your data will remain intact and you really won't lose anything. I will describe the process to you. I will also include instructions on how to back up the current registry in case you want to go back to it for any reason.

First you will need to locate the Windows install disc. If you don't have one you can borrow one as you will not need a key to perform the steps.

Put in the disc and perform the steps necessary to get your computer to boot to it.

Once you are the "Welcome to Setup" screen, press R to go into the Recovery Console.

Enter the administrator password when prompted

Tell the program what installation of Windows you would like to recover.

Now for the commands

md tmp (this creates a directory labeled tmp)

These 5 commands will make a copy of your current registry hives and back them up to the tmp directory. Type these in first. ENSURE you back them all up.

copy c:\windows\system32\config\system c:\windows\tmp\system.bak
copy c:\windows\system32\config\software c:\windows\tmp\software.bak
copy c:\windows\system32\config\sam c:\windows\tmp\sam.bak
copy c:\windows\system32\config\security c:\windows\tmp\security.bak
copy c:\windows\system32\config\default c:\windows\tmp\default.bak

These 5 commands will delete the current, corrupt registry hives.

delete c:\windows\system32\config\system
delete c:\windows\system32\config\software
delete c:\windows\system32\config\sam
delete c:\windows\system32\config\security
delete c:\windows\system32\config\default

These 5 commands will copy the pristine, uncorrupted hives into your system.

copy c:\windows\repair\system c:\windows\system32\config\system
copy c:\windows\repair\software c:\windows\system32\config\software
copy c:\windows\repair\sam c:\windows\system32\config\sam
copy c:\windows\repair\security c:\windows\system32\config\security
copy c:\windows\repair\default c:\windows\system32\config\default


Once you have entered your last command type exit to leave the recovery console and your computer should restart.

If you want to put the old registry back for any reason, simply follow the same steps but instead delete the current registry and replace it with the files that you placed in the tmp directory. Ensure that you remove the .bak extension from the file when you copy them over.

Really, other than this, the only other known working option is to reformat your computer.

Hope this helps.

I have a Yamaha HTR-5930 Home Theater Sys. Somehow, I've managed to lose my right channel when watching T.V. (dish network), but when my son plays with the XBox, he gets full surround stereo. Any ideas?


The XBox is probably hooked up separately to the amplifier, try cycling the inputs on the amplifier. If that doesn't work replace the cbale between your amplifier and tv.

My cisco 4503 keeps losing it's configuration file.. any ideas why this is happening? thx.


Hi,

The case gives me hints towards the configuration register value which is not set to proper value, so the switch is not checking the the saved configuration in the config file.

Please do the below steps.
1. Log into the switch
2. Come to enable prompt
3. Typein the below commands
config t
config-register 0x2142
end
write memory

The find an example of the prompt and the commands below

Switch# config t
Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTRL/Z.
Switch(config)#config-register 0x2142
Switch(config)#end
Switch#write memory


After this you can configure your switch as per your requirement and then save the config by typing write memory

Now you can reboot your switch and the switch will come up with the configuration as you set.

Best Regards

How do i reboot windows vista. i knwo theres a way to do it not from the CD and it returns it to how u go it out of the box. please let me know thanks


If you are using MS-DOS 6.0 or later, you can use multiple configuration menus or the CHOICE.COM program to configure your system. For more information on using these options under MS-DOS 6.0 or later, type HELP MULTI-CONFIG or HELP CHOICE at the MS-DOS command prompt and then press ENTER. To create the files to automatically restart your computer with the appropriate configuration, do the following:

Create a directory on your hard drive called C:\CONFIGS. Create the CONFIG.SYS and AUTOEXEC.BAT files you need to boot your system for HIMEM.SYS and applications that require it, with the following names: c:\configs\config.dos c:\configs\autoexec.dos Create the CONFIG.SYS and AUTOEXEC.BAT files you need to start your system for the program that conflicts with HIMEM.SYS. Any unique file extension can be used. The following example uses 386: c:\configs\config.386 c:\configs\autoexec.386 The following DEBUG script can be used to create a small executable file called REBOOT.COM. This file, when executed, will cause your system to restart. To create the file, change to the DOS directory, and type the following: debug reboot.comEnter the following information, pressing ENTER key after each line: A 100 ; Debug instruction for assemble MOV AH,0D ; Disk Reset INT 21h ; causes SmartDrv 4.x to write cache MOV AX, 40 ; set up segment addressing MOV DS,AX DS: OR BYTE PTR [17],0C ; equivalent of pressing CTRL+ALT MOV AX,4F53 ; Issue a "DEL" (53h = DEL scan code) INT 15h ; EMM386 sees this & shuts down. DS: MOV WORD PTR [72],1234 ; Set REBOOT flag to Warm-Boot (0=cold) JMP F000:FFF0 ; Execute the internal restart routine <CR> ; This line must be blank (just hit ENTER) R CX 20 ; File size to be written to disk (in hex) N REBOOT.COM ; Filename W ; Write the file to disk Q ; Quit Debug NOTE: The REBOOT.COM file created with this debug script is compatible with SMARTDrive and its write-behind cache feature. The instructions in REBOOT.COM cause SMARTDrive to write (flush) its write-behind cache to disk before the computer is rebooted.

The following commands can be used to copy and rename the configuration files to the root directory of the C drive and restart the computer. To simplify the process, you can put these commands into batch files.

To start your machine for Windows, use the following commands: copy c:\configs\autoexec.dos c:\autoexec.bat copy c:\configs\config.dos c:\config.sys reboot.com To start your machine for the 386 application, use the following commands: copy c:\configs\autoexec.386 c:\autoexec.bat copy c:\configs\config.386 c:\config.sys reboot.com
