Since when r u getting this message
try doing a system restore if the problem started recently
if its a dell
the moment you power on the system press F8
you will get system's advanced options
use up and down arrow key
highlight safe mode
press enter
if will ask about your operating system
press enter again
when you get user name options click on administrator

    if its WIN vista

    you will be able to do a system restore in the same way

    you may not get a pop up for system restore but when you get to the desktop you can click on start and type system restore in the start search

    at the top you will get an option which says system restore

    rest everything is same.

Windows Vista won't install on my laptop.


Hello
Is this a clean install or an upgrade?Sounds like a upgrade.

You may need to format or wipe your hard drive clean,then try to install.

Try to boot from the vista disc and choose the clean install method.

Remember you will loose everything on your laptop doing this kind of install.

I was doing a clean install of vista biz., lost power, batt. did not last, laptop shut down befor final install. Now the laptop will boot, but alert tells me of error and I must restart...Its the same loop...


Hence you are always advised to do OS install with power lead connected.

It is attempting to boot from HDD not CD. Change boot priority and start install again.

This computer simply wont install windows vista or windows 7 saying registry is corrupt when it restarts for the 1st time during installation.


You may have to have to do a complete format of the drive before installing the OS. The registry is within the OS. This normally happens when you have an older OS that is having issues.You can use the option in the installation disc when you are installing the device.

Slow in boot up


MAKE YOUR MENUS LOAD FASTER This is one of my favourite tweaks as it makes a huge difference to how fast your machine willMAKE
YOUR MENUS LOAD FASTER


This is one of my favorite tweaks as it makes a huge difference to how
fast your machine will 'feel'. What this tweak does is remove the slight
delay between clicking on a menu and XP displaying the menu.

Go to Start then Run
Type 'Regedit' then click 'Ok'
Find "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\"
Select "MenuShowDelay"
Right click and select "Modify'
Reduce the number to around "100"
This is the delay time before a menu is opened. You can set it to "0" but
it can make windows really hard to use as menus will open if you just look
at them - well move your mouse over them anyway. I tend to go for anywhere
between 50-150 depending on my mood.
