Corrupt File System

When I try and back up my laptop, I get the following error: "The backup disk has a corrupted file system. Fix it by using the disk error checking tool or choose a different back up tool." I tried to use the restore files function...after rebooting, I get the same error message!?!?!?!?!?!?

    Yep, that is correct...it was a formatting issue. Luckily, I took it to the guys at GeekSquad and they "fixed" it almost immediately. THANK YOU though for your help...you were correct!!

Well i guess that either your file system is corrupt or your disk is formatted into a filesystem that it's not supported by the backup programs. I don't really know what filesystem is your disk formatted into but usually the FAT32 and FAT16 are the most failsafe file systems for Windows.
So copy/paste the data you don't want to loose and then go to
My computer -> right click on the drive icon -> format and then choose fat 32. Then try backing up your laptop again.

How to fix mySQL corrupt databases?


you should follow two steps:

Create an appropriately named database on the target machine
Load the file using the mysql command:
$ mysql -u [uname] -p[pass] [db_to_restore] < [backupfile.sql]
Have a look how you can restore your tut_backup.sql file to the Tutorials database.
$ mysql -u root -p Tutorials < tut_backup.sql
To restore compressed backup files you can do the following:
gunzip < [backupfile.sql.gz] ' mysql -u [uname] -p[pass] [dbname]
If you need to restore a database that already exists, you'll need to use mysqlimport
command. The syntax for mysqlimport is as follows:
mysqlimport -u [uname] -p[pass] [dbname] [backupfile.sql]

Or make use of Repair Toolbox for MySQL

Hi,
This stop error means that your ntfs file system is corrupt (damage in the file system, bad hard drive data, corrupt SCSI or IDE drivers or a corrupt ntfs.sys file).
Try the following:
- Enter to Recovery Console (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/307654/en-us)
- Run the command: CHKDSK C: /F
- Restart the computer
If you are unable to load Windows there is a chance that your partition is corrupt beyond repair. In that case, you need to reformat the partition to be able to use it again.
Before this, and if you do not have a backup, you should consult a technician because you can try installing the faulty disk in another PC to try to recover the data.
Good luck!

The laptop shows windows system 32 configuration file corrupt error how to run laptop?


Hi

Windows system 32 file is part of the operating system and when it is corrupted, you cannot boot up your computer. I suggest if you had a systems back files, use it to recover the missing file. Just load the back up disk CD/DVD into the CDROM, boot up your computer and run it to CDROM and option will display and choose the repair.

If don't have the systems back up disk. Only solution is to reinstall or repair your operating system.

For reinstalling and repairing, insert the OS installer CD in your CDROM and boot up your computer and run the repair or reinstallation process. Follow the procedure.

My computer says I'm missing esapp.dll & ltdis10n.dll. How do I fix that?


This may be due some or all of the following reason: Corrupt file-system, corrupt registry entry, improper/incomplete device driver installation or software installation or may be due to a virus infection.
Make sure you have a backup of important files/photos/documents in your system.
Try repairing you file-system using check disk utility that comes with windows. Repair your registry using a registry tool. Update the device driver or the application. esapp.dll & ltdis10n.dll belongs to Kodak Easy Share application. First completely remove the application and try reinstalling it. Have a full system virus scan with latest virus definition update.
Update your windows system with current patches and fixes using Windows Update utility.
All the best

Dell Laptop Inspiron 6400 - "Stop Error Screen" appearing


This stop error means that your ntfs file system is corrupt (damage in the file system, bad hard drive data, corrupt SCSI or IDE drivers or a corrupt ntfs.sys file).

There are two ways,you might be able to fix it

1, If you still can access Windows, try to disable any backup programs, virus scanning programs or disk defragmenter tools. Try also to run a hardware diagnostics tool to detect any errors your hard drive might have. And run chkdsk /r to detect and repair any file system structural damage.

2, If you are unable to load Windows. Then you should try to access your ntfs partitions by making a ntfs boot disk with NTFS4DOS (freeware).

After you load the bootable floppy disk onto your damaged system, select either option one (1) or option three (3). If you selected option one (1), type chkdsk /r at the command prompt, and your problem should go away after the disk has been repaired.

Note! Unfortunately there is a chance that your partition is corrupt beyond repair and all of your data is lost. In that case, you need to reformat the partition to be able to use it again.
