Volume Licensing Keys.

Are you talking about the keys for the OS or a particular app/apps installed on your PC?

Look at this web site. It might shed some more insight into your problem. But then again it may confuse you too.

Emachines T4010 won't start up, says image checksum, and that an image is corrupted


Receiving a bad image checksum error message when upgrading a computer to Windows XP means that a Windows system file such as user32.dll is damaged. This error occurs when any damaged system file is encountered that isn't overwritten during Setup. The repair process for this error involves voiding the damaged dynamic link library file from the DOS command line prompt and replacing it with a new copy from the Windows XP disk.

Insert a clean Microsoft Windows Millennium Edition (ME) or Microsoft Windows 98 Edition startup disk into the computer, and hold the reset button on the front of the computer until the system commences rebooting. Navigate the Windows startup menu with the keyboard's directional keys and select 'Start Computer with CD-ROM Support'. Hit "Enter" to continue. Write down your CD-ROM's drive letter on a piece of paper. At the command prompt, type "Drive:" without quotes (Drive should be replaced with the drive letter on which Windows is installed), and press "Enter." Type "cd windows\system32" without quotes, and press "Enter." Type "ren user32.dll user32.old" without quotes and again press "Enter." This renames your damaged user32.dll file so it is not recognized by the system, but still physically exists as a backup if needed in the future. Eject the Windows ME or 98 disk, and insert the Windows XP disk. At the command prompt, type "extract CDROMDrive:\i386\user32.dl_ Drive:\windows\system32\user32.dll" without quotes, replacing CDROMDrive with the CD-ROM's drive letter that you made a note of earlier, and replacing Drive with the system's drive letter on which Windows is installed. Hit "Enter" to execute the command. This process extracts a new copy of the user32.dll file to your hard disk, from the Windows XP CD. The new file will be found in the Windows/System32 directory. Restart the system by holding the reset button on the front of the tower until reboot commences.

Gateway zx4800 MBR is corrupt..error code = 0 x 57...too, need to know correct boot sequence


Windows installation CDs and DVDs have a number of system repair and recovery tools included that can get almost any computer back on its feet after a bad crash or faulty operating system installation. One very common problem that comes up when installing a second operating system is a corrupted Master Boot Record, or MBR. Windows System Recovery has tools that can fix a corrupted MBR, but if you don't have an installation CD or CD drive to put it in, you're going to need to copy the recovery materials to another medium, like a USB drive. If your MBR is corrupted, you probably don't have access to your Windows installation, so you'll have to follow most of these steps on another computer.
b> Insert the USB drive into another computer and run a command prompt window by typing "cmd" into the search box of the "Start" menu and hitting "Enter." Enter "mkdir X:\boot," and "mkdir X:\boot\sources" where X is the drive letter of your USB drive. Type "cd" and press the "Tab" key once, then hit "Enter." Enter "xcopy /H boot.sdi X:\boot," "xcopy /H Winre.wim X:\sources\boot.wim," "xcopy /H c:\windows\boot\dvd\pcat\bcd X:\boot," "xcopy /H c:\windows\boot\dvd\pcat\en-US\bootfix.bin X:\boot," and "xcopy /H c:\windows\boot\pcat\bootmgr X:\" to copy the necessary files to the USB drive. Enter "attrib -r -s -h /s X:\*" Enter "diskpart" to run the DiskPart program, then enter "list disk." The window lists the drives connected to your computer. Find your USB drive in the list and enter "select disk X", where X is the letter of your USB drive. Enter "list partition" to see the partitions on the drive and then "select partition X," where X is the number of the partition listed. Insert the USB drive into your computer and turn the computer on. Allow it to boot from the USB drive. You may have to set your USB drive as a primary boot drive in the computer's BIOS first. Enter your computer's BIOS (by tapping Delete or F2 during bootup, on most computers), then put your USB drive at the top of the "Startup" list. Go to the "Startup Repair" option in the "System Recovery Options" window. The "Startup Repair" process should correct your Master Boot Record and allow Windows to boot normally again. You will probably lose access to any other operating systems installed on your computer, though, since this recovery option is only designed to get Windows working again.
Hope this helps.

Bios date and time problem


You need to replace the cmos battery in your computer. Theu are usually Cr2032 batteries which you should be able to pick up for about £1.

unplug your computer and open the case.
When you look at the motherboard you should be able to easily locate the cmos battery cliped onto the mobo.
Take the old battery out and insert the new one.
put the case back on and plug the pc into the mains again.
You will need to re-enter the date etc the next time you boot up, but the settings should be retained after that.

Ntldr error on ibm intellistation z pro w/ xp pro


During the XP install, you will be given the chance to set up partitions on the drive. Blow them all out. Completely. Then recreate the partition and let XP install. I expect this will solve the nt loader issue. If, however, it does not, then use the recovery approach below to get the required loader files onto your boot partition.

  1. Insert the Windows XP bootable CD into the computer.
  2. When prompted to press any key to boot from the CD, press any key.
  3. Once in the Windows XP setup menu press the "R" key to repair Windows.
  4. Log into your Windows installation by pressing the "1" key and pressing enter.
  5. You will then be prompted for your administrator password, enter that password.
  6. Copy the below two files to the root directory of the primary hard disk. In the below example we are copying these files from the CD-ROM drive letter, which in this case is "d." This letter may be different on your computer.

    copy d:\i386\ntldr c:\
    copy d:\i386\ntdetect.com c:\

  7. Once both of these files have been successfully copied, remove the CD from the computer and reboot.

I have bought nero 7 and although I have followed directions, I am still unable to load it onto my computer.It keeps informing me that the serial number is wrong. Where am I going wrong?


Are you using the "-" key between each characters or typing it in a a whole, could be an issue. Also uising Capital Letters can affect code also. Try and keep the same as what you see. Also make sure your not typing in zeros where the letter o is or vice-versa. Also Install without serial number if you can, and when it completes go into nero and change license to your key. I bought online and downloaded it with the demo license provided and then afterwards change it.

Hello, my problem is when i turn my PC on there comes an error named : b0 error. I searched solution and for some people it works but not for me. Can you help me pleasee???


Hi Yimiden,


A solution to the problem is to insert the OS X install cd without pressing any key. When the install times out, OS X should boot from the harddisk. To make a partition active, do this:
  • Start Terminal.app
  • Enter:
sudo -s (enter your password)
fdisk -e /dev/rdisk0 (the disk number may be different on your installation, eg. rdisk1)
print (list all partitions)
flag 1 (sets partition 1 as bootable - might be a different number on your installation)
quit (answer y to save settings)
  • Now reboot the computer. You should now be able to boot without the install cd. .

When this solution does not work, try this:
Start the computer with the CD.
Wait until you can start the Terminal from the menu
Type this:
fdisk -u /dev/rdisk0 (or any other number if it is not the first disk)
Quit the Terminal
Quit the Installer
A dialog box apears
Click "Choose Startup Disk"
Choose your first disk
Click Reboot . . . . . .



Please give me a feed back if this is useful
