My computer lost ( ntlpd is missing) plus said press ctrl alt del it's not coming up.


Sounds like you've got some corrupted files. If you have your Windows disc, try a reinstall/repair or try to drop back to a previous restore point.

If those don't work, you might try to reformat/re-install your software. (backup your data if you can beforehand as reformatting will wipe all data from the drive).

This can even be a hardware problem, like the HD controller bad, which caused the file problem in the first place. Or a virus can cause such issues, which would make reformatting/reinstalling a good idea as well.

Make sure you have a defragment task running every month, if not every week. You can schedule to run at night or during the day, whenever you're not at the computer. If you turn it off when you're not using it, just leave it on that one day (or night) that the defragment needs to run... or start it manually before you go to sleep and unless it's a large drive, it should be done when you get up.

Good Luck!

SR1500NX Model desktop compaq presario got a virus yesterday. I was running virus scanner, takes 4-5 hrs usually. About 90 mins in, my brother came and closed everything out, and just went on using it. Now...


Make sure you do not have a diskette in the diskette drive, if you have one. Check the connections on the hard drive make sure they are all properly seated (on the system board as well as on the drive). Once this is done check to see if the system starts up. If the same error continues, take the hdd off and put it in another computer (make sure you have virus protection on it). Next take all of your files and copy them to a flash drive or cd. Once you have saved your files reinstall the hard drive on the original machine. Startup the machine and go to your setup menu and set your computer to boot from the cd rom drive. Install your windows cd in the cd rom drive and reboot your machine and reinstall windows, reinstall your programs from their respective disks, and copy your files from the backups you created to the flash drive or cd.
Good luck and remember to always backup your system. This will save time in the event this happens again.

Yea sorry, forgot that tid-bit of info. It,s the W3118 eMachine / Gateway FIC K8MC51G


This issue can be caused by any of the below reasons.

-Corrupt boot files on the computer.
-Settings for hard disk drive are not correct.
-Floppy diskette or CD in computer causing issue.
-Boot devices not set properly.
-BIOS corrupt or misc. setting not set properly.
-Connections loose or disconnected.
-Bad Hard disk drive or other bad hardware.

Solution:


Corrupt boot files on the computer

If the computer has no bootable files on the drive it is attempting to boot from it is possible that the computer may halt at " verifying dmi pool data..."

To resolve this issue:

Boot from a bootable floppy diskette. Ensure that this diskette was made on the same Microsoft Windows operating system that is installed on your computer.

Once at the A:\> prompt type "sys c:" and press enter. This should report the message "File system transferred." Once transferred remove the diskette and reboot the computer.

If the computer continues to not boot attempt to re-create the master boot record by booting from the bootable floppy diskette again. Once at the A:\> prompt type "fdisk /mbr" and press enter. This should return you to the prompt without giving you any message. Once at the prompt remove the diskette and reboot the computer.

Note: The above information only applies to Microsoft Windows users. If you are running a Linux / Unix variant or other operating system such as OS/2 and the computer is freezing at this DMI message ensure that Linux / Unix has been properly installed first and/or your boot manger is not corrupt.

Settings for hard disk drive are not correct

The computer freezing at "Verifying dmi pool data..." may be caused when the hard disk drive settings within CMOS are not set properly. Enter CMOS and verify that the hard disk drive settings are set properly and/or that it is set to Auto Detect.

Floppy diskette or CD in computer causing issue

Verify no floppy diskette or CD is in the computer. In some cases the computer may be trying to boot from either of these drives causing issues with the boot sequence.

Boot devices not set properly

The computer stopping at " verifying dmi pool data..." can be caused when the boot devices on your computer are not set properly in CMOS. First, verify that no CD or diskette is in your computer. If a CD or diskette is in the computer attempt to remove this first to determine if it was attempting to boot from it.

If No CD or diskette is in the computer and your computer still halts at the DMI message enter CMOS setup and verify that the boot options are set properly. We commonly recommend that the floppy be set the first boot device, hard drive as the second boot device and the CD-ROM as the third boot device.

BIOS corrupt or misc. setting not set properly

If none of the above recommendations have resolved your issue attempt to reset the BIOS / CMOS settings to the factory or default settings.

Connections loose or disconnected

If the computer has been recently moved or new hardware has been installed in the computer it is possible that a connection may be loose or even disconnected. Verify that the hard disk drive, floppy and CD-ROM cables are properly connected.

Bad hard disk drive or other bad hardware

If you computer continues to freeze at the DMI message after attempting all of the above recommendations it is possible that the computer may be freezing because of a bad hard disk drive or other bad hardware in the computer.

Before replacing any hardware we first recommend you attempt to erase everything on the hard drive and start over.

If you're unable to get to the point of re-installing the operating system it's likely your computer has a hardware issue and it's suggested that the hard drive be replaced. If that doesn't resolve the issue then have the motherboard replaced.

Can i create a bootable cd to reinstall SATA drivers?


Yes, you can create a bootable disk
No you will not be able to install SATA driver from it ...

You can get SATA drivers from your manufacturer web site but I doubt you need a bootable CD to do that.

May I suggest you visit www.pcpitstop.com and have then scan your computer. review the report and take appropriate action.

thank you

Iwant too kow how do you transilate a diskett on to a CD


I am assuming by Diskett you mean a small flat disc 'bout 3"x3"Square)

1/. Use your burning program, when ADD Files comes up, select Drive A (Usually "A" is diskette drive) open,Add, Burn, ..Nero is pretty good.
I2/. F you mean one of those SMALL round CD type , just do it the usual way, (Same as above actually, just substitute your CD Drive letter for "A".

Hope I'm right in interpreting your prom, if not someone else will pick it (me) up on it and correct it..

Copy files from old computer and transfer to new computer


Although Vista comes with an Easy File Transfer Wizard it is not compatible with Windows 98.

You will need a CD burning program such as Nero Burning Suite or Creative CD Writer or here is a link to a FREE one.
