System keeps freezing during start up, gets to showing icons and then sits and goes no further and nothing will open


Try to start up in safe mode or go to the recovery console to 'recover' to original settings of the computer, or try to 'restore.'

I know you're having problems getting it to not freeze on start up.

If worst comes to worst, then try to get a full install or upgrade DVD for windows 7 to reinstall the windows operating system with the latest operating system available for your omputer.

God luck on this repair.

Lost administrator pass and i have only access to my system my wife and i share the same computer. i dont know how but one of us or our grand daughter lost the administrator pass word and we only have...


so im guessing that your problem is that you want the Administrator password back?
in this case, there is one thing you could do. It's called "Offline NT Password and Registry editor" and you can download it here. You can use this program to change administrator passwords, elevate privilege levels and create new accounts with administrator settings. Read up on it, give it a go. Let me know how it works for you.

hi,

there might be no connection from your cd-room slot.Pull out your cd-room and clean it, use a paint brush or a used toothbrush to get rid of the dust. After that, return your cd-room to its normal position. If still not working, replace a new cd-room.Hope this may help you.

Registration of DVD X Copy Platium


Unless your copy is "bootlegged", simply call the company and tell them the old computer crashed several times, you gave up, bought a new computer, and you need to install it on your "new" computer.

If they value you as a customer they will give you support you need, if not make sure you tell them you are taking your business elsewhere.

You may need to buy a new license because you under the old license it only allows so many activations. But at least try to get a "freebie" anyway.
