Can not open to recover...? n i dont know how to solve this problem.... (vista - Dell Precision T3400)

  1. Boot from the Vista install disk
  2. Choose your language settings and click "Next"
  3. On the bottom of the screen click the link "Repair Your Computer"
  4. Select the Vista installation to repair and click "Next" and it will launch WinRE
    • The "Load Drivers" button will open a mini Windows Explorer, which can be used to search for drivers in case they are needed to access disk drives or other components. This mini Explorer is also very handy to perform file copy/move operations and change file-attributes.
The following options are available in WinRE: Startup Repair - It will repair the boot manager files and restore critical files required for booting Windows Vista.

This should solve basic bootup problems.
Or you could also do a Complete Repair which replaces your current Vista installation.

I have an old Sony Viao model PCG-962A loaded with Win Millenium OS. Its capacity is up to Win2000. Will it be possible for me to just re-format the HD and install Win98? Thank you.


Yes certainly you can just reformat the hard drive and install Win 98 on the machine. You will no doubt find that the operating system runs very well as the computer was built for Win98 in the first place.

However you may find the you might have difficulty with the USB 2 drivers as they do not come with the driver cab package. You should be able to get the drivers from Sony's support website as well as any other drivers you may need.

Sony viao pcg-k25 upgraded to vista, ati graphics wont install. says "try installing a vga driver'

First, you need to verify if you are installing the correct driver. If you upgraded the OS to Vista, then the CD that came with your laptop for your ATI graphics possibly does not carry any Vista driver.

Check the CD (driver) and verify if it has a Vista driver. If it does not have it, then, get the exact model number of your ATI graphics card and download the Vista driver.

However, it would be safe to contact the manufacturer and ask them if they have Vista driver.

This is the only issue that I'm thinking of.

Good luck!

Have deleted vista off toshiba satelite s2276, deleted all partitions, repartitioned to single large drive, formatted, booted from floppy, win 98 se setup started and working until installing drivers then...

If your system came with Vista pre-installed it is likely there are no XP or eariler drivers available for it, in which case you will have to stick with Vista or Windows 7.

How to Create EISA Vista Or XP......

You can't. The partition was created by SONY to hold recovery files because so many people lose their installation disks. So SONY created the partition, loaded the special software on it and put options in the menu to use it.
