    Thank you! I got XP Pro (sp3), PC: DIY ASUS M3A78-em AMD Quad-Core 9950, 2x2GB RAM.The program in question is Minecraft.

  • li8788 Nov 24, 2013

    What I did like this: shot down (click "turn off computer"), when all stopped running, pulled out one of two 2GB ddr2 stick, then turn on PC. Then found my desktop all changed! Instead my favorite background there is only basic background (lawn and sky). Further more, I lost Minecraft, the program my son play everyday, together with its icon on desktop

    This is particular... I think you can save minecraft or part of saved games, but you must remove the HDD, connect usb external and use another pc with a recovery data tool for save all data you want. You MUST stop to use your hdd because pc not delete but overwrite all data. When your do this job, you MUST format (not restore) your pc whit a clean install. Check this software http://www.easeus.com/partition-recovery... this is an example of partition recovery tool.

SOURCE: Memory stick pro not recognized any more by dell inspiron 6400

try your memory stick to any other computer check if memory stick still working. if yes then update the BIOS of your computer by downloading the latest BIOS from the dell support site. If memory reader still not working after updating BIOS then have that part replace or if it is integrated with motherboard have your motherboard replaced.

Start up repair cannot repair this computer automatically


If Startup repair is not working then use a system utility tool like Reginout to fix windows registry errors or restore windows to an earlier state:
Restore computer/ windows 7:
Navigate to the Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools program group.Click on the System Restore program icon.
Click Next > on the Restore system files and settings window.Choose the restore point that you want to use.

Note: Check the Show more restore points checkbox to see more than the most recent restore points.
Note: Any restore points that you created, scheduled restore points that Windows 7 created, and those created automatically during the installation of certain programs will be listed here. You can not use System Restore to undo Windows 7 changes to a date that a restore point does not exist.
Click Next >.
Click Finish on the Confirm your restore point window to begin the System Restore.
Note: Windows 7 will shut down to complete the System Restore so be sure to save any work you might have open in other programs before continuing.
Important: System Restore will not revert any of your non-system files like documents, email, music, etc. to a previous state. These types files are completely unaffected by System Restore. If your intention with this tool was to recover a deleted non-system file, try using a file recovery program instead of System Restore.
Click Yes to the Once started, System Restore cannot be interrupted. Do you want to continue? dialog box.
System Restore will now restore Windows 7 to the state that was recorded in the restore point you chose earlier.
Note: The System Restore process could take several minutes as you see the "Please wait while your Windows files and settings are being restored" message. Your computer will then reboot as normal when complete.
Immediately after logging in to Windows 7 after the reboot, you should see a message that System Restore completed successfully.
Click Close.
Check to see if whatever Windows 7 problem you were troubleshooting has been corrected by this System Restore.
If the problem still persists, you can repeat the steps above and choose another restore point if one is available.
If this restoration caused a problem, you can always undo this particular System Restore.

My computer says configure updates and then it automatically turns off


This will be a long process of troubleshooting and may end up of restoring your computer to a factory settings. You can try the steps below:
First is boot up to advance boot options, to do this follow the steps below: -Turn off your computer -After pressing the turn on button start tapping F8 key until you see the Advance Boot Option. -Try choosing Last Known Good Configuration if it fail try Safemode, Safemode with networking or safemode with command prompt, if one is successful use system restore to restore your computer to an earlier date but if it fails you'll need to use your Operating System Disc to use the repair option.
Here's how to access system restore incase you're able to access Last Known Good Configuration, Safemode, Safemode with networking or safemode with command prompt: Windows XP: Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click System Restore select Restore my computer to an earlier time then select a bold date on the calendar and click Next on the Confirm Restore Point Selection page, click Next. System Restore restores the previous Windows XP configuration, and then restarts the computer. Then click OK on the System Restore Restoration Complete page.
Windows 7 and Windows Vista: Click Start, point to Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click System Restore select Restore my computer to an earlier time then select a bold date on the calendar and click Next on the Confirm Restore Point Selection page, click Next. System Restore restores the previous Windows configuration, and then restarts the computer. Then click OK on the System Restore Restoration Complete page.
If you're on safemode with command prompt: At the command prompt, type %systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe, and then press ENTER, System Restore window will pop-up then select Restore my computer to an earlier time then select a bold date on the calendar and click Next on the Confirm Restore Point Selection page, click Next. System Restore restores the previous Windows configuration, and then restarts the computer. Then click OK on the System Restore Restoration Complete page.
If all the steps above fails you need to use the recover disc or the operating system disc to do a repair on your computer. Revert back in case you need steps for using start-up repair.
Note: If the steps above and start-up repair fail there's no other option but to restore your computer to factory settings.

How do I retrieve deleted emails?


If you're using a PC based email program like outlook express, you may be able to go back to a restore point using System Restore and select a date from before the point you deleted them. This doesn't gurarantee they'll be recovered, but it's possible. Otherwise once deleted in most cases they're gone for good. Usually they reside in a deleted folder and you get the opportunity to restore then (move them back to another folder like Inbox), but if you deleted them from the Deleted folder they're permanently gone except as mentioned, possibly restorable from a System Restore. Cick on start, then search and enter System Restore if you don't know how to navigate to System tools in accessories. Try to select a restore point that says System Checkpoint. Those are usally safe restore points (dates in bold only)

I am trying to doa system restore but it wont let me, how doi do it


For System Restore to work you need to have the restore points available. If there was no restore points then system restore will not work.

You can try performing system restore from Safe Mode (Best Option more often than not).

Try Below mentioned steps
Step 1: Keep hitting F8 key while computer starts to boot.
Step 2: It should generally take you to windows advanced option. If it boots to windows then you have to try again.
Step3: Once you reach windows advanced option Choose safe mode and wait for the system to boot (Generally a slow process).

Accessing System Restore:

Step 1: Click on start
Step 2: All programs and choose system tool.
Step 3: Look for System Restore (Follow the screen).

Note: You will not be able to choose all the dates in the calender only those dates that are bold will be available for restoring the computer.
Again it might not work all the time so keep trying with different dates in Bold.

In windows vista..everything would remain the same. instead.
step 1 & step 2 will change

click start> and start typing system restore (in the start search box) and then click on system restore.
everything else from step 3 will remain the same. and you wont see any calender or bold dates, but you will only get the restore points. also click on show me restore points older than 5 days. to get more restore points. then select the restore point and then continue.

if this doesnot work. then post the problem again with the ip address of your computer. to get the ip address call your ISP.
