Question about Computers & Internet
I went to my computer and opened system properties and then cliked on advance tab then went to start up and recovery settings and be damned if I didn't assign zero value to the wrong one can you talk me out of this crazy dumb mistake il never do it again ?
You don't say which setting you have 'assigned a zero value to', but the default settings are as follows:
Default operating system - Fortunately you couldn't have deleted anything here. Just make sure it is set to the OS of your choice (Chances are there will only be the one).
Time to display list... and time to display recovery... - Both should be 30 seconds (for XP and Vista). By default, both are ticked in XP, only time to display list is ticked in Vista.
If you hit the edit button (XP only) your boot file should look something like this (upper/lower case is not important, neither is the exact order):
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect
Under the system failure section, tick everything.
Default for XP is small memory dump (64 KB), for Vista kernal memory dump.
Dump directory -
XP default is: %SystemRoot%\Minidump
Vista default is: %SystemRoot%\MWMORY.DMP
Do you REALLY promise you'll never do it again??? :-)
