Artisan62 re; Vista not booting

Pagebor, thanks for reply. Am i right in thinking OS is operating system?
As a beginner I am still none the wiser. Could you elaborate for my benefit, as to what i should actualy be doing now. Do you mean remove Vista and re install a new version?
Apologies for making it a little difficult considering my lack of knowledge.

Get back to me if you can, regards Artisan62

    PauldLucky, G'day mate, thank you for taking the trouble to reply. The PC will only intermittently go to boot manager and it just doesn't respond to anything i try, however the website details were very interesting, remember i'm only a beginner so i struggle to even understand the jargon, but there was or is an article there about corruption of your files as a result of downloading multiple queus of media files at the same time, which is when this problem occured and it is related to the NVIDIA n Force aswell, so i have a gutt instinct herein lies the problem? So as I'm in contruction and a sledge hammer will only result in more damage. Reluctantly i'm off to see the boy genius at the local repair shop tomorrow, lets see how he copes!

Is it Possible to Have 2 operating Systems on One Hard Drive? And Be able To Choose Which one to use at the Boot Screen? I Would like to install Ubuntu Linux without Erasing Windows Vista...


yes
you have to partition your hard drive and put win on one partition and linux on the other partition
then when it boots up yo set your bios to ask which os you want and go enter on it and it will boot that os for you or i think that you can put an icon on desktop and double click on that to open the os system
talk with a computer geek to see how it is done

When trying to start my computer emachinesE627, i have a black screen that says error loading operating system


The computer can not see the Operating System. This can be caused by several things, so I will just list a few possiblities for you here:

If you have a USB flash drive or external HD plugged into the PC. Remove it while the computer boots. Some machines are set to boot from a flash drive and will search for an operating system on it and display NO OS if the bios can not find one.

If the Hard drive has been removed or replaced recently then the Jumper settings may not be correct on the new drive.

If the computer was having trouble booting periodically, freezing or experiencing blue screens before this message, then you may have HD corruption or possible disk failure. With HD corruption you only need to run chkdisk /p within recovery console in XP or run the Vista recovery center with vista. HD failure is a dead disk, no option but to replace.

Bad RAM or a dead CMOS battery can also cause this type of failure. So check these also.

This can also be caused by a damaged master boot record or primary boot partition. Run fixboot or fixmbr from the recovery console on XP or just run the Vista Boot Repair Console in Vista

Worm Viruses and Rootkits that damage the primary boot sector or the Master Boot Record can also cause the OS to mysteriously disappear. So if none of the above sound like they are for you, then you can try looking for one of these on the affected drive.


Hope this helps,
Gill

How to format windows vista os


The easy way is to do this via the vista os CD or an old xp one.

You will need to reboot your PC as it starts up look out for 'boot options' and select boot from your cd drive. If you do not get this option then please reboot again then go into boot options and select your CD rom or DVD rom to be your boot device.

For both options after making the change and your have your CD i, you will be given to option to press any key.

make sure you select to reinstall windows, at this point you will be be given the option to format your hard drive.

If you need more info or the PC is a laptop with out a CD Rom / DVD rom let me know and I will go over other ways to format your hard drive.

Missing operating system


You cannot download the OS from another computer. You should have a Restore CD. If you do not, power it down, then power up again. When the computer begins to boot, look for a message that says something about Restore. It may be like "For System Restore, Press F10".

If you do not see this, power down and up again and press F8 when it begins to boot. There are a couple options here. You can try: Boot to Last Known Good Configuration, Safe Mode, or see if there is a Restore option on this menu.

If none of these options work, you may have to get a new OS. Would suggest eBay where you can get them fairly reasonable.

Thanks for using Fixya.
