Restoring to an eariler date cannot fix this problem.
If the hard disk diagnostics failed, this could indicate the hard drive is about to fail. The hard disk platter/s most likely has some bad clusters and if any files are located on these bad clusters then you would get a read failure. The number of bad clusters will increase and cause further problems.
Run chkdsk to lock out these bad clusters but this is a temperoary solution and the computer may not be able to relocate the data from the bad sectors to a good sectors.
The fix is to backup your data as soon as possible, then replace the hard drive with a new hard drive and re-install Windows and the Compaq's device drivers.

Windows XP starts then restarts over and over


Heaps of things can cause this - corrupt software, corrupt OS, virus, hard disk error. etc

First of all, I'd try turning the pc on, press the F8 key repeatedly until you get a list of options in dos mode text.
The first one listed will be safe mode.
use the arrow keys to select Last Known Good Configuration.
press enter, and, if you are in luck, your system will boot up just like normal.
This has fixed numerous pcs in the past.
If it works, I'd advise doing a checkdisk on the hard disk and running an AV scan, just to make sure.

If that fails, I'd again press F* repeatedly on boot, then select safe mode.
Wait ages, until you get a prompt with heaps of text, with yes to go to safe mode, no to go to system restore.
Select NO, and the system restore wizard will start... select a date previous to when the issue started, wait a while, and then test. if that goes thru, but the system still wont boot, i'd rerun system restore, but choose an earlier restore point.

If that fails, you'll need to boot from an XP disk, home or pro - the one that matches your OS - home or pro... boot from the cd, at first screen press r to repair via the recovery console.
select your os partition ( usually just press 1)
put in your admin password (usually just press enter, unless one is set)
and, when you can see the command line...
type in
chkdsk /r c:
and press enter.
this will check and repair, if possible, any faults on the hard disk.
once this completes, reboot and retest.

If that fails, you'll need to again boot from an XP disk, at the first screen press enter to install OS, press F8 to accept the licence agreement... then, if and ONLY if you get the option to press "r" to repair, press R, and allow it to repair the OS.
DO NOT CONTINUE PAST THIS SCREEN OR CHOOSE ANY OTHER OPTION OTHER THAN R, as you will OVERWRITE YOUR DATA.

To reiterate, if you don't get the option to press R to repair STOP, or otherwise say goodbye to your files.
you will not get the option to repair if you either are using the wrong xp disk, ie home disk with pro OS, or vice versa, or if the hard disk is corrupt, or the OS is too badly damaged to be recognised...

Hope this info helps.

When i go to turn on my webcam,computer restarts


Switch On your PC/ Laptop and log in to windows.

Go to 'Start'--->Programs--->Accessories--->System Tools--->Click 'System Restore'


A 'System Restore' window will appear.

Here you will have to check "Restore computer to an earlier time' and click Next


Now you will find one Month Calendar window with Dates below, go to the previous month by clicking the '<' sign in the upper left hand corner of the Month Calendar and select any date that you see in Bold.


Note: It is better if you could remember from which date you are facing the issue, try to select a date prior to that date.


The detail of that particular date should show "System Checkpoint" and time on the right hand side box. Select that date.


Now, Click on Next and System Restore will start and windows will take a reboot.

After reboot your problem should be resolved.

Photo impact pro as a software has compatibility requirements. For example, impact pro was invented during the times of windows Xp operating systems with Microsoft computers.

Since the Xp operating systems, computers have gone through design fronts of Windows Vista 1 & 2, and recently displaying Windows 7 on those acquired on the market over years ago. The most recent multimedia photo editor software's acquirable on the retail market have compartibilies with more recent computers. Alternately, performing a computer alteration may achieve installation capabilities. First, finding a computer still functioning on windows XP, millennium, 2000 or 1998 would make installation possible. However, sustain wearsomeness since windows 98 earlier years computers were least designed for multimedia capabilities as known with Photo Impact Pro 8.5. Second, a possibility of acquiring Windows Xp disk software on the retail market to replace the one on the computer would make impact pro installable. However like known of operating system software's, it is only possible to install the same operating system on an existing one on a computer as restoration purposes. If different software should be acquired like XP requesting installation on windows Vista or Windows 7, the entire hard disk drive has to be erased of media traces of the prior. Alerternately, a new operating system may be installed if only a new hard drive, memory cards were acquired to replace the prior on the computer to make possible installation of Photo Impact pro 8.5

My compaq started but it goes off rightway with a message sying you PC are going off to preven damages. what can i do?


Hello.

Either you have a memory issue, a hard drive issue or operating system problem.

First, disconnect all cables. Be certain to dispel static electricity by touching metal. Remove the cover. Try reseating (removing and reinserting) your memory (try one module at a time to test).

If still a problem, boot your system to Safe Mode (press F8 repeatedly). Go to System Restore and choose a date when your system worked OK. Note: with System Restore, everything, including your documents and other files you saved on the hard drive, will roll back to that date.

Try your hardware diagnostics to see if the hard drive is failing. Upon boot, press F12 (usually) to load your diagnostics. Follow the prompts to test the hard drive. If faulty, you'll need to replace.

It's also possible that your Master Boot Record is corrupted. To fix:

First, restart your computer with the Windows XP setup disk in the CD drive. If you don?t have your original disk, borrow one or download a ISO image from a torrent site.
2. When prompted, boot from the CD drive by pressing any key. If Windows loads automatically, you will first have to enter the BIOS setup and change the order of the boot devices to start with the CD drive.
3. Once the setup loads, you will see the option to press R to repair a Windows installation.
4. Once the Recovery Console loads up, you will have to type in a number that corresponds to your Windows installation. This is normally just 1. Press Enter and then type in the Administrator password.
5. Now at the prompt, type in fixmbr. Your damaged MBR will now be replaced with a new master boot record and your computer should now be able to boot properly. Also run the fixboot command to repair the boot sector with a new one.

Hope this helps.

I've been using my 5300C scanner with Windows XP for years. Now, all of a sudden, my computer can't find it. My scanner is connected. I tried re-installing the scanner software but my computer tells me...


Most likely your scanner was put offline by a microsoft update. Mine was knocked out of business by a hardware driver update downloaded from microsoft update.

Try to roll back the scanner driver (my computer, system, hardware select scanner, properties, rollback driver to prior version) or go to your system restore function and do a restore to a earlier date when you know the scanner was working and see if that fixes it.

Worked for me. Windows XP pro

Removing partial install of 2nd os


You should be able to do a SYSTEM RESTORE to a point before the XP Pro installation.

Start the machine and start tapping the F8 key until the boot menu is displayed. Use the arrow keys to highlight SAFE MODE and press enter. If you are given a menu to choose which Windows to boot into, choose the Home edition. Windows will load with the minimum drivers. Your screen display will be 640 X 480 and the icons will be large. You will eventually see a window advising you that you are in safe mode, click OK or NO. Click NO. That should open The System Restore function. Choose to restore the system to an earlier date. A calendar with be displayed. The BOLD dates are the ones that you can restore to. Choose a date that was before the date you tried to install XP Pro. Follow the prompts and the restore process will run and reboot your computer. Following the reboot, the installation will complete and Windows will open.

If you have installed a service packs or updates after the restore date you will need to install them again.

Good Luck! and please let me know how this works out for you.
