Microsoft Digital Image OEM

I had to do a Factory Re-Install of my Systemax Computer using the Phoenix Recovery Program that came on the Computer when I bought it. NOW my Microsoft Digital Standard 2006 will not work correctly as before. I can do Everything in my Digital Program EXCEPT Editing the images in putting the frames around them. I have to put the Digital Image Disk in my "D" Drive before I can do it. I have Reinstalled the program by using the Digital Image Disk but nothing helps. It states that everything was Installed Corectly, but I am having this problem that I did not before the re-install. I can use it with the disk, but it is a pain everytime i want to work on my images to load the disk and remove it when I am done especially if I have to stop and do something else and go back to the Editing. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you in advance,
James

When you install the program, does it give you more than 1 install Option? Most programs will give you 3 install options depending on how much disc space you want to use for that program. Typical, Custom, Full. If you haven't done so, I recommend uninstalling, reinstalling using the FULL install or Custom so you can pick and choose which features aren't necessary for you to have. If this works, excellent, it it doesn't, I am sorry, but hopefully it gives you a little bit of insight.

Restore factory settings without disk


when you first power on the machine hit F11 (for most machines) on the keyboard repeatedly until the recovery screen pops up. Click on advanced options, click system recovery, then click OK when prompted. the recovery process will begin and take about 25 minutes on a 5400rpm hard drive. then you must reinstall everything that isn't factory.
NOTE: THIS WILL ERASE ALL DATA THAT ISN'T PREINSTALLED. AFTER THE RECOVERY, YOU MUST INSTALL THE INTERNET SOFTWARE, VIRUS SOFTWARE, ALL UPDATES (THERE'LL BE A LOT!!), AND PERSONAL SOFTWARE AND HARDWARE. BACK UP ALL DATA BEFORE YOU BEGIN. ONCE THE RECOVERY PROCESS STARTS, IT CANNOT BE STOPPED, OR THE SYSTEM WILL GET CORRUPTED. :(
Hopefully this will help.
P.S. Give this recovery process about a day to get it over with. Don't rush it for best results, and use pc decrapifier to remove all the bloatware and trial ware installed by hp on your pc.

BIOS-upgrade not working. Now Bios needs Passw. And a license is gone...


Locate Phoenix BIOS Passwords

The basic input/output system, or BIOS, is a program that acts as a digital liaison, managing communications between peripherals and the operating system.

Because the BIOS is critical to the operation of a PC, some computer manufacturers and workplaces employ a password for security.

If the password is lost or has been reset through electrostatic discharge, it would be impossible to guess without the aid of computer forensics.

Sometimes you can gain access to the BIOS through the keyboard, depending on the computer, but typically the solution is mechanical.

Contact your computer manufacturer.
All computer manufacturers have websites with technical support available.
1
Have your computer model number and serial number ready.
If the manufacturer is unable to help locate a password, standard back-door passwords may help.

2
So-called back-door passwords may help you access the BIOS.
Try using the following back-door passwords to access the BIOS: phoenix, PHOENIX, CMOS, BIOS. BIOS passwords are case sensitive.

3
Contact the motherboard's manufacturer if the back-door passwords failed.
Find the motherboard's website for technical support.
You will need to open the computer case if you do not know the motherboard brand.

4
Electrostatic discharge can reset a BIOS password.
Shutdown and unplug the computer.
Unplug the monitor and all peripherals from the PC, including speakers and USB devices.

Ground yourself by wearing an antistatic wristband clipped to the metal case, or touch something metal before you open the case.
Use the screwdriver to loosen and remove the screws from the case. Look for the motherboard, the largest circuit board inside, attached to one side of the case.

5
Printing on a motherboard can be hard to see without a magnifying glass.
Examine the motherboard for a brand name.

A good place to start searching is near the processor, the large square box on the motherboard. A flashlight and magnifying glass are especially useful for a clear view of the motherboard.
The brand name could be printed anywhere or, sometimes, not at all.

6
The motherboard battery is round and fairly flat.
Locate the CMOS battery while you have the case open.

If contacting the motherboard manufacturer failed, you will have to remove the battery.
The battery is circular, about the size of a dime, but as thick as two to three stacked dimes.

Do not disconnect or remove anything yet.
Removing the CMOS Battery

7
Note the location of any cables that need to be disconnected.
Use the digital camera to take pictures of the motherboard, or sketch the location of cables and connectors.
f any components or cables need to be moved or unplugged to reach the battery, you want to remember their exact location.

8
Leave the battery out for at least 20 minutes.
Remove the CMOS battery carefully so as not to snap or break the clamps.
Leave the battery out for 20 to 25 minutes to allow the capacitors to completely discharge any memory. Avoid touching anything else in the computer.

9
Tighten the case screws when done.
Return the battery to the motherboard, and reconnect any cables that were disconnected in the case. Close the computer case and tighten the screws.

10
Look for the setup message on the monitor.
Turn on the computer and closely watch the monitor for the "Entering Setup" message that appears before Windows starts.

The message will tell you which key to press to enter the BIOS setup.
You may need to reboot a few times to see the message, as it appears on the screen for just a few seconds.

11
Carefully read the settings information on the monitor.
Follow the directions on the monitor for changing the date, boot sequence, and any other settings.

Work slowly and read the screen directions thoroughly.
Be alert and cautious.

Once the settings are saved, the system will start, and the password will have been removed.

Phoenix BIOS help and simulation
Recover Phoenix BIOS
Although most people think the operating system is the core software required for a computer to run, without the computer's BIOS, then the operating system cannot even launch.

When a BIOS installation encounters a problem, it can cause components of the computer not to function correctly or it can cause the computer itself not to function at all.

It is possible to recover the BIOS of a computer, if you know what sort of BIOS the computer's motherboard uses.

The recovery process should take approximately 5 to 10 minutes, during which your computer will seem mostly unresponsive.

Download a crisis recovery program designed specifically to restore damaged or otherwise non-functioning copies of Phoenix BIOS.

Read the instructions for using the recovery program to make sure that no specific changes or configurations need to be done to it before it is used.


Place the Phoenix BIOS recovery program and its files onto a blank disc or a USB drive according to the program's instructions (this usually simply consists of extracting the files from an archive.)
Once the program and its files are in place, insert the disc into the computer's drive or plug the USB drive into an available USB port.

Hold down both the Windows key and the "B" key on your keyboard and press the power button on the computer.

(On some laptop computers, you will need to press the "Fn-B" keys instead.)

Wait for the disc drive light or the USB drive access light to start flickering to show that the computer is accessing the Phoenix BIOS recovery program, and then release the keys.

Wait patiently while the Phoenix BIOS recovery program overwrites the damaged sections of the motherboard's current BIOS installation.

Depending on the computer and the recovery program used, the computer may or may not reboot once BIOS recovery is complete.

If the computer does not reboot on its own, wait at least 10 minutes before manually restarting the computer to make sure that you do not interrupt BIOS recovery.

Eject the disc or remove the USB drive before rebooting to prevent accidentally reloading the recovery program.

Reboot the computer and watch to make sure the Phoenix BIOS screen appears as normal. Once the BIOS loads properly, your operating system should launch as normal.

I need to restore my computer using the Function keys and do not remember which Function key(s) to use


If you are certain that there is a recovery partition with a factory default image then your user manual should include the instructions on how to access it.
HP normally uses a backup and recovery software rather than a recovery partition with a default image. This setup requires that you make restoration discs before using the computer in case something goes wrong.
Alternatively, you can keep restarting the computer and hit a different function key each time in an attempt to access a recovery program.
If you own a copy of Windows you can also just put in the disc and install Windows to your C: drive and over-write the existing installation.
As a last resort, you can order a set of recovery discs from HP's Customer Support.

Unable to restore back to factory image read error


Are you using Factory CD/DVD or Made from utlity Disks or from hard drive utility option.
This seems to be a CD read error.
I found the same error code need help for posted for HP, Compaq, Gateway, ETC.
ALL new setups with the MAKE RECOVERY DISK UTILITY and NO factory disks.
Factory recovery disks are available for $60 and up from manufacturers.
Other option is Install Retail OS - get drivers from manufacturer - Install software you want to use.
Other option is expensive but reliable.
Factory option would be for your system only.

D2D recovery hi all i have acer extensa 5230 laptob which came with no OS so i got for it a genuine copy of win 7 64 bit and setup my system with its drivers and all works fine but i want to make D2D...


With a standard windows install, that did not come from the factory, you can not set up a "recovery partition" that functions as the original did. One solution you can try is to image the fresh install to an external drive.

Systemax factory restore - how?


Tap F4 repeatedly to launch the recovery console on SystemMax Machines with the recovery partition still intact. Then you should be able to restore the machine to factory defaults without a CD.
