Sounds like you have a corrupted registry. Programs and files are behaving erratically or as if they are not correctly or fully registered or installed. You may need to reinstall your operating system. Good luck.

How do i view the backup from my previous computer ? i can see the photos from my iphone and one pdf file, the files from the computer are "protected"


Eortiz, did you try to read the files with a windows PC? Because when you connect the external drive to a PC you should be able to view the files and even be able to change the attributes like read only and hidden.

My o/s drive on my computer is red not green and it says I only have 6% left what does this mean and how can I fix this


Hey


No worries. This is not really a problem, if I understand correctly, so the solution is easy.

Explanation
The bar under your OS (C:) in My Computer indicates the use of the hard drive. The amount used and the amount left. The bar turns red when the space unused on your drive is less than 10%.

Solution
Move some of your personal files to another drive or external drive, or DVDs, or USB jump drive. And connect/insert that drive or DVD whenever you need those files.
-Or-
You can use Disk Cleanup to delete some unnecessary files on your computer.
To launch Disk Cleanup fast: Click Start and in the search bar type cleanmgr and press Enter.

Hope that's useful to you.

Going to reset my computer. Where can I find the reset button?


If you're trying to restore the Computer to factory settings, then you can use the VAIO Recovery Center that is shipped with the Computer.

NOTES:
  1. Click the Start button, then click Help and Support . NOTE: If the Help and Support link is not available on the Start menu, re-enable the link in the Taskbar and Start Menu Properties window.
  2. In the Windows Help and Support window, click Backup & Recovery .
  3. Under Backup & Recovery , under VAIO Recovery Center , click Launch VAIO Recovery Center .
  4. In the VAIO Recovery Center window, under Choose a program , click to select the desired option: NOTES:
    • It is strongly recommended that recovery discs be created to help restore files if the operating system will not start. Recovery discs are bootable and can be used to perform a recovery on a properly functioning hard drive.
    • The Windows Backup and Restore option opens the Backup and Restore Center provided with the Windows Vista® operating system. This provides the ability to save information from the hard drive, such as personal data files, and restore previously backed up data.
    • Computer problems related to hardware can be diagnosed using the VAIO Hardware Diagnostics option.
    • One or more drivers or factory-installed applications may be reinstalled with the Reinstall Programs or Drivers option.
    • The entire (C:) drive can be restored to its original, factory-installed condition by selecting Restore C: Drive .
    • Choosing Restore Complete System will restore the entire (C:) drive, while removing or restoring the Recovery Drive partition. Modifying the size of the hard drive partitions is also an option with this type of recovery. This option requires you to insert Recovery DVDs created using the Create Recovery Discs option.
    • To remove all data from the hard drive, including the operating system, all programs and personal data, choose the Wipe and Erase Data option. This option is provided for the convenience of advanced users who want to install a different operating system, and who want to ensure all data has been removed from the hard drive first. All other users are strongly urged to avoid selecting this option.

Hi,

While the HP software installs on a computer running Windows XP,usually during Windows device discovery (Plug and Play), the followingerror message displays on the computer: 'CannotInstall this Hardware. An error occurred during the installation of thedevice. The system cannot find the file specified.'

Solution:

Acorrupt Windows installer might cause this problem. Follow these stepsto remove any installed software, perform a System Restore to returnthe computer to the way it was before the product software wasinstalled, and then download and install the most recent version of theproduct software.Step one: Uninstall the All-in-One software

Even if the installation failed, some HPsoftware components might have installed on the computer. Follow thesesteps to use the Windows Add or Remove Programs tool to uninstall thesoftware.
  1. Disconnect the USB cable from the product.
  2. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
  3. Click Add or Remove Programs. The Add or Remove Programs window opens.
  4. In the Currently installed programs list, select the following items if they are listed:

    • HP Imaging device functions 9.0
    • HP Customer Participation program 9.0
    • HP Solution Center 9.0

    If the list of installed HP programs contains any version numbers less than 9.0, select the following items if they are listed:
    • HP Officejet/Photosmart/PSC All-in-One software XX (where XX represents a version number less than 9.0)
    • HP Imaging device functions XX
    • HP Customer Participation program XX
  5. Click Change/Remove, and then follow the on-screen instructions to uninstall the software.
  6. Restart the computer when prompted to do so

Windows System Restore is a Windows process that allows you to resetthe computer to a specific previous state, also known as a restorepoint. This process does not affect files on the computer.

    2. If prompted, type your product number. You might also need to click it in a list of similar products.

  4. Click the driver that you want to download. If you need help deciding, see the information in the previous table.
  5. Click Download only. This option allows you to install the software at any time after the download completes.

Theinstallation type names vary depending on your computer operatingsystem. The following information might help you decide whichinstallation type to use.

I would suggest using Windows Restore (Start/All programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore to restore your computer back to the way it was before you moved the files. Then you can move the iTunes libraries from within iTunes itself.

If you are not familiar with System Restore, note that when you go back if you won't lose data but any other programs you've installed will need to be reinstalled.

If I do a windows complete PC restore,will i lose all my saved files?


If you do a System Restore using Windows own program you will retain all of your files

If you do a repair via the Windows disk you will save your files

If you do a full re-install using the Windows disk all bets are off

It is safer to back up onto memory pen or DVD all of the files which matter to you and then do the re-install , you will need a bootable copy of the Windows disk and a copy of the disk containing the drivers for the Motherboard etc

Acer Veriton M460 Quad won't start after running Vista Scheduler I have a new Acer Veriton M460 Core2 Quad PC running Vista Business. Something weird is happening that seem to be related to the Vista Task Scheduler. I have a complex chain of actions that start from one action. The chain is: run software to download .html files, run Microsoft software, run DOS batch files and DOS executables. It works fine if I start it from the desktop and if I start it using Task Scheduler. However, if I used Task Scheduler, the next time I boot up the PC it freezes at the Acer pre-Windows boot screen. Even the set up keys mentioned on that screen don't work, e.g. "press F12 to choose a start up mode". I have to pull out the power plug. When I plug the power back in, even after quite some time, the PC proceeds with the boot up successfully through to Windows without me having pressed the Power On button on the computer. So the bottom line is that if I use the Scheduler, my PC won't start the next time I go to use it. There was an event that may have some relevance or could be coincidence: about a week ago after I first scheduled the task I came back to my PC, which had run my scheduled task unattended after waking itself from Sleep Mode. I found it showing not Windows but the PC boot options menu. I pressed the highlighted option, which I think was Normal. This hasn't happened since but could be related. Incidentally, my PC was supplied with Sleep Mode set to start after 20 minutes plus there is a screen saver. But neither was going when I last used the scheduler for my task. Any ideas?
