Shutdown/Startup repair issue

I have an issue with my ACER 7520 laptop. A message appears "configuring updates, 1 of 3 please wait" It then attempts to shutdown and reboot. I then get a message stating it was unable to start up, so Start Up Repair will begin. This does not complete, so when going into the diagnostic there is an error message _"Boot critical, cwindowssystem32drivers dis.sys is corrupt". This initially happened after I downloaded BBC IPlayer, managed to revert to the system prior to this update, all appeared Ok but problem has resumed

Hi dear


The process NDIS 5.1 wrapper driver belongs to the Microsoft Windows Operating System.

Description: File NDIS.sys is located in the folder C:\Windows\System32\drivers. Known file sizes on Windows XP are 182912 bytes (94% of all occurrence), 167552 bytes.
The driver can be started or stopped from Services in the Control Panel or by other programs. The file is a Windows core system file. The program is not visible. It is a Microsoft signed file. The service has no detailed description. Therefore the technical security rating is 0% dangerous.

This is a common problem experienced by many people. Just Google NDIS.sys and you'll see what I mean. For some it is onboard sound such as Realtech, others it is IRQL conflicts, and for still others such as yourself the NIC card.

One person worked around it by uninstalling the Windows driver and downloaded the manufacturer's driver.


oke

Computer wont bootup windows xp error loading operating system drive 1 not found please help me


1.Restart your computer. Immediately after the screen goes blank for the first time, press the F8 key repeatedly. The Windows Advanced Options menu appears. If the menu does not appear, restart your computer and try again. Use the cursor keys on your keyboard (your mouse will not work) to select Last Known Good Configuration, and then press ENTER. Windows XP attempts to start.

.
If you recently installed new hardware, shut down your computer and disconnect the hardware. Then, restart Windows XP and troubleshoot your hardware to get it working properly.
3.
Restart your computer and press F8 again. This time, choose Safe Mode and press ENTER. Windows XP attempts to start in Safe Mode, which does not automatically start programs and hardware, and displays very primitive graphics. If Windows XP starts successfully in Safe Mode, you can remove any programs or updates you have recently installed. Then, restart your computer normally.

Performing a repair installation of Windows XP can fix many serious startup problems. While you should not lose any of your important documents, you might lose settings, and you will need to reinstall many updates.
Before performing a repair installation of Windows XP, you should have both your Windows XP CD and your product key available.
To perform a repair installation of Windows XP
1.
Insert your Windows XP CD into your computer.
2.
Restart your computer. If prompted, press a key to start from the CD-ROM.
When the Welcome to Setup page appears, press ENTER on your keyboard.
On the Windows XP Licensing Agreement page, read the licensing agreement. Press the PAGE DOWN key to scroll to the bottom of the agreement. Then, press F8.
When prompted, press R to have Windows XP attempt to repair Windows by reinstalling important Windows components.
The repair and reinstallation process might take more than an hour. Eventually, Setup prompts you to answer questions just as if you were installing Windows XP for the first time. For detailed instructions, read Install Windows XP.

After installing windows security updates, i could not get windows vista to come up and i don't have a recovery disk from Acer for my Acer Aspire T180 PC Desktop.


I run into this all the time, thank you microsoft!
First, shut it down and take a break, make sure you power the computer completely down to a cold boot. Walk away for ten, fifteen minutes.
Then when you come back boot into your setup (bios) screen, to do this is different for each manufacturer, some require you to hit del, some F2, some F10... when you get there Change your boot order to anything other than what it currently is, and save it. Reboot. let windows try to start. if it does, great! If not, reboot and Go BACK to the setup screen and change your boot order BACK to what you NEED/WANT it to be and save again and reboot. This SHOULD take you back to a windows startup of either a repair or safe startup screen. DO NOT REPAIR! Boot normally. The updates lost a startup configuration that is written INTERNALLY to windows. Since you altered the hardware configuration by changing the boot sequence around, windows had to rewrite this and away you go. On a laptop it gets a bit more confusing as you have to do this without the battery in place or it will continually write the data to the hard drive under the laptops auto powerdown/save features that a desktop does not have. NOTE: if this does not work any other bios change other than clock/calander will force this dmi configuration change. but typically the boot sequence is the safest to alter, as you do not risk messing up critical setting with this one.
