Replacing hdd with new hdd with noway to recover my os win7 64 bit

Do you have the OS install CD? Hope you do... if not you may be out of luck unless you can borrow a copy from someone. To use your original OEM code it would have to be the exact version OS originally installed on the PC. Dont toss that bad drive yet though. After reinstalling the OS, add the bad drive as a slave and unless you beat it to death... you should be able to access most of the files on the old drive. Good Luck.

Computer powers up but wont display anything or respond to any buttons. HDD light flashes along with the CD drive. The problem started after holding down the power button for 5 seconds to do a emergency...

Weird though I dought that had anything to do with it. I would start by replacing the ram this will cause a no video boot as will a bad or overheated cpu. First b4 u spend money on the ram try hooking the external VGA output to another monitor see if u get boot screen. If not then start with the ram. If that doesnt fix it it may be a faulty motherboard which means time for a new laptop. Always get a shop to look at it b4 u trash though....

Turn on emachine, and dos menu pops up saying windows could not start because the following flile is missing or corrupt: WINDOWSSYSTEM32CONFIGSYSTEM then under that it says, you can attempt to repair this...

Borrow an installation Cd of your OS. Configur your computer to boot from CD.
Boot from CD, Choose (R) repair option. The recovery Console appears. Enter the number (1, 2 or other) that corresponds to the partition the system detected. If you see only one installation then you enter 1. You will then be asked to log in as administrator by supplying the password you entered whwn you installed.
When the C:\> prompt appears type
COPY [your_file_name] [SPACE BAR] C:\WINDOWS\system32\ [your_file_name]
After that Press [CTRL][ALT][DEL] to restart.

It should copy the missing file and you will be able to reboot.

Hope it helps

Failure to operate hard disk


If I understand your posting correctly, the computer need not be repaired since all your after are the files stored in the old hard disk (HD).

If that is the case, you simply need an external drive enclosure to house the old HD (chances are IDE) with USB cable interface to be hooked up to another PC that is operational. From there you can then copy/move your files. This is of course assuming that the HD is still working/operational/recognized by the 2nd PC. Additionally, you can also run file recovery software(s).

You can borrow such an enclosure from a tech friend or purchase your own from any reputable computer shoppe/store.

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

CPU problem

Here are possible solutions to your problem. Since you didn't give us some beeps from your PC.

1. Measure the voltage of CMOS-Battery it should be 3V if not change it, P4 is sensitive to it. OR

2. Try other memory first to test if it works fine. OR

3. You needed to refresh the installation of your windows XP to bring back or to repair the files in its system. Boot your WinXP CD and there find the one that refreshes the installation... Don't worry it will not erase your files... It should not try to create a new file-directory.
