My thoughts are that you may have a bad sector on the hard drive and even though you run the restore this issue needs to be dealt with first.
My thoughts is that if you know what type of hard drive is in the PC: 1) SATA or 2) IDE
is to get on to Western Digital's web site and download and burn a copy of their 'Data Lifeguard Tools'
http://www.wdc.com/wdsearch/search.aspx?sq=Dato+Lifeuard+Tools&sl=en-US&sc=

Then:
1) start the PC up with this disk,
2) then fix the disk with this software and
3) then use your Vista disk to reload a fresh copy of the OS back on to the drive and you will be fine.

Please help me to fix pc registry problem for window xp please


First try to do a System Restore.
  1. Open the start menu and click all programs.
  2. Go to Accessories.
  3. Go to System Tools.
  4. Then choose System Restore from that menu.
  5. When System Restore opens choose Restore my computer to an earlier time and hit next.
  6. On the calender see if you can pick a time before you started having problems. Choose that day and click next. It will run and should reboot the PC. It might take a little bit just let it do its thing.
If that doesn't work try this.
Open the My Computer icon on you desk top. If you don't see it on your desk top it will be in the start menu on right side of menu. Left click to open it. A window will pop up that show your drives (C:), (D:) and so on. Right click on the (C:) drive choose Properties from the drop down menu. The next window will have some tabs on the top. It will look something like this.

Click the Tools tab. There will be an option to Check Now. Click it and put a check in both little boxes and click the start button. It will say the PC needs to restart to preform this task. Restart the PC and walk away till it gets done.


Hope this helps.
Good Luck

I want to restore my last week set up? how to do?


Using Windows Vista System Restore Windows Vista has a feature called System Restore that automatically backs up registry and system files whenever you install new software or drivers. This feature is useful when you install evil software that makes your computer run really slow. But don’t worry, System Restore won’t remove Windows Vista.
Using System Restore in Windows
There are two places that you can use the system restore feature from. From within Windows, you can just type restore into the Start menu search box, and you’ll immediately see System Restore at the top of the start menu:
95afb90.png Or you can type rstrui into the search box and hit enter. Your choice.
You will immediate see a screen where you can choose to roll back the system to the last restore point. You can select “Recommended restore”, and just click next, or you can choose a different restore point
23c0f17.png If you do choose a different restore point, you will see a list of restore points that you can choose from. How many times have I typed the word choose at this point?
You’ll notice in the screenshot below that the last thing I did was install Virtual CloneDrive to mount ISO images, but right before that I installed the NVIDIA drivers.
323d69a.png Click one of them, and you will have to confirm and then restart your computer to roll the system back.
6022678.png If you receive an error while restoring, then use it from safe mode and it should work fine. To get into Safe mode, you can reboot and use the F8 key right before Windows starts up.

If Your System Won’t Boot
If you can’t even get into windows, you can boot off the installation dvd, and choose the “Repair your computer” option on the lower left hand side. .
Click next on the next screen, and then choose System Restore from the System Recovery dialog. It will take a few seconds to come up, and you will see the same screen that you would see in Windows:
da0479a.png Click next, and on the next screen select the drive that your copy of Windows Vista is installed on.
Click Finish, and Vista will roll back to the previous restore point.

Windows Vista hangs at 3 of 3


You should be able to go to Add Remove and remove the specific update from the date it was loaded. You can also try a System Restore if you have one available for that date. The update did not install itself properly and keeps trying to do so.

HOW DO I RESERT TO FACTORY SETTING MY DELL DESK TOP


To reset the bios, hit F2 during POST and you can reset the defaults in there.

For Windows, insert your Windows CD/DVD and re-install windows by hitting any key when the prompt comes up and then following the directions on screen. Make sure you use the key on your computer when it asks for it after it reboots.

Reformating


You need to have a windows vista dvd or a recovery/restore cd from Acer. CD-less installation will only work if your computer has a restore image which should be installed in the factory. I dont think acer dekstops have that though.

Just call Acer and ask for a vista dvd or see if you know someone who owns a computer which came with the same version of vista and borrow their dvd.
