If you are running XP or Vista, you can regain all components by running your system restore in the "control panel". Just try to go back to when all was fine. "System Restore" is a little harder to find in Vista but it's there.

Got the control panel

Select Add / Remove programs

Now select Add Remove WINDOWS components

select the ones you require and it will install them. It will require the Original windows CD for most of them.

If a box has a GREY tick in it click the DETAILS button and you can select additional components through there..

WARNING ! only tick those that you need as just clicking them all may install components that your system does not handle or could slow down your computer to some degree.

I uninstalled somethings and now other seemingly random things are missing


To add Accessories again, to get your games, calculator follow these steps:
1.. In Control Panel, start Add or Remove Programs.
2.. In the left pane, click Add/Remove Windows Components.
3.. In the Components box, click Accessories and Utilities, and then click
Details.
4.. Click to select the Accessories check box, click OK, and then click
Next.
5.. Click Finish.
If you don't see all the things you want under Accessories such as games and calculator, remove the check from the Accessories box then click Details and it will show you everything. Select what you want to install.

You will need the software program for Jasc Paint Shop to reinstall it. It is not a part of Windows.

SOMETHING POPPED IN THE DRIVERS DOOR AND NOW THE WINDOW WILL NOT GO UP


Vehicles: Any with the above symptoms.

The small popping noise was some component in the Window Operator Mechanism breaking - the cable may have snapped, a plastic pulley may have broken, a plastic cable guide may have broken - it could be anything.

The reason you can't see the Window Operator Motor or the track is that it is behind the moisture barrier - remove it by carefully peeling it back at the edges of the door frame (so that it can be re-adhered back to the same door frame location without adding adhesive/sealant).

When you get to the Operator, be prepared to have to drill out some number of aluminum rivets to remove the OEM Operator, and, when installing the new Window Operator Mechanism, you'll have to replace these rivets with your own Pop Rivets, or they can be replaced with small hardware store nuts/bolts/washers (mechanics choice). Have an assortment of both ready before you attempt your Window Operator Mechanism replacement.

If the broken component of your Driver's Door Window Operator Mechanism is actually a missing/broken rivet, then replacing that would fix the Window.
But these rivets hardly ever fail - what fails is plastic components in the Window Operator Mechanism.

Missing bootmger


Fixing the "BOOTMGR is missing" error isn't too hard; here's how.
The day before yesterday I was testing out a program with several system utilities built in. One of its components left my computer in a bit of a mess - no icons anywhere and other assorted woes. I had set a system restore point before I ran the program, so I thought I'd do a system restore. System restore gave me a message that it couldn't restore my files. I decided to restore a disc image I had made a short while back. When I booted up the computer I got a message:
BOOTMGR is missing
Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart
I stared at it the white letters on the black background for a few minutes, while the cursor blinked back at me. After some searching (on another computer) I had some solutions.
Barring any hardware errors, here's how to fix that error:
  • Insert your Windows Vista or Windows 7 disk into your DVD player and restart your computer.
  • The next screen you see should have the Language, Time and Currency and Keyboard boxes.
  • In the lower left side there are two options: "What to know before installing Windows" and "Repair your computer."
  • Click on "Repair your computer"
  • Windows will then try to find the installation directory for Vista or Windows 7, depending on what you have.
  • Next up is a screen with a box called Recovery Options. Click the first option, Startup Repair.
  • You'll see a Startup Repair box with the message "Startup Repair is checking your system for problems..."
  • When it's done, it will prompt you to reboot. If there is more than one problem it may reboot again to continue repairing.
  • At this point, you can remove the DVD, reboot and everything should be working.
Two sites I found helpful are BOOTMGR is Missing at about.com and cyberstorms How to fix "BOOTMGR is missing" in Windows Vista
If the method outlined above doesn't work, try Solution #2 at the cyberstorm link.
Oh, restoring the disc image went fine and all is well. All my data was backed up (somewhere other than the hard drive Windows is on) so that was one thing I didn't need to worry about. Windows Vista and Windows 7 are the only Windows operating systems where this message appears; XP users don't have to worry about this one.

1985 Nissan 300zx seems to be "missing".


suspect 1) bad spark plug(s) - change whole set if needed, (2) failing ignition coil (3) failing
distributor component(s), or (4) worn out distributor cap and/or rotor - if these need to be changed,
change both the cap and rotor as a set.
COST: if yo do any of these repairs yourself, your parts costs would be fairly low, but getting a garage
to rebuild your distributor could be costly

Error message says: missing file, aquatica.dat


Hi,

This is a system files. These are basic file's in a window directory.Regarding aquatica.dat, it is a multimedia file component.

You can repair this by downloading .dat file from .dat database. You can easily search the file online and add it. If you purchase a software, it would cost you certain bucks. Better reinstall windows or restore.

Computer can be affected by the missing of these files. It depends on How many files are missing, configuration of the PC, Virus, Malisware, Adware etc.

The simple option - Restore or Reinstall, if not a tech.

Let me know,if need any further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
