Did you try to download all of the updates that are available? You might need to go to the company web site and see if there is a BIOS Flash for your notebook. Vista has a lot of problems that Microsoft can't even explain.

Need a master password for this Durabook. It has Windows XP installed


Download the CD image (ISO) of the Ultimate Boot CD (UBCD) here:

Burn it to a CD, boot the system from it and then launch the Offline Windows Password and Registry Editor. It will allow you to reset the account password. Then boot up normally and log in.

I know of problems running Vista and Win7 from the same hard drive and it is usually fixed by having Win7 as the main boot on "C" and Vista on "E" a separate partition.
The sound drivers are very similar and usually only give trouble when mixing 32 bit with64 bit.
Hope this helps

During work my laptop gets jam, until i dont take the battery out it dos'nt shutdown and after shutdown it does'nt start back.


Your laptop may be getting too hot, or it is not able to cope with the applications that are being run on it. It may need to be upgraded, you might want to concider performing a fresh install of your operating system Windows XP/Windows 7, remember to backup your information. Get your laptop serviced, the technician will remove the dust from the inside of your laptop, this will allow greater air flow through your laptop thus reducing the tempreatures giving you a laptop that will perform at it's optium level.

I picked up a twinhead durabook r15d, upon starting it has this error message reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device. Is this fixable? Is it worth it to fix?...


The good: Affordable; great battery life; impact protection; spill-proof keyboard; magnesium-alloy frame. The bad: Still no flash card reader; heavy; no double-layer DVD+R support. The bottom line: The Durabook will surely appeal to those who need a rugged notebook to withstand the elements outdoors.


Make sure the HDD is showing in the BIOS, you may have to instal an OS

I would just run a full reinstall if I were you but try this first:

Boot and insert Vista install or recovery DVD (any Vista disc will do for this)

Reboot and hopefully it will offer the option to boot from the DVD. Take this option and follow it through until you are offered the option to install Vista or repair your computer. Just follow things though from there and it MAY repair the problem.

If it does not offer you the initial boot option then look on the initial boot screen for the boot options key - probably F11 or F12 - and press that during initial boot to obtain the boot options screen

After that its a full reinstall by the sounds of it - save your data to a stick or DVD first though

2 operating systems


The Boot Configuration Data (BCD) store contains boot configuration parameters and controls how the operating system is started in Microsoft®Windows Vista.
Remove Windows Vista From Dual Boot System Windows Vista works slightly different from earlier versions of Windows when installed on a dual boot system, in that it has a completely different boot loader.
When Windows Vista is first installed as a dual boot operating system a new boot folder is added to the root directory of your PC. This is a hidden file and therefore is not noticed. When you boot your PC a menu appears with the following options:
  • Earlier versions of Windows
  • Windows Vista
Clicking the Windows Vista option will boot the PC into Windows Vista. If, however, you select the earlier versions of Windows option, another menu will appear from which you can choose Windows XP or whatever earlier version - Windows 2000 or Windows 2003 server - you installed first.
Because of this new boot loader it is not as easy to remove Vista from a dual boot system scenario. Simply deleting the Vista partition will, of course, remove Windows Vista, but, unfortunately, it will not remove the Windows Vista boot loader. For this reason, if you simply delete the Windows Vista partition, on rebooting your machine you will not automatically boot into Windows XP (or an earlier version). Instead you will once again be presented with a menu from which you have to choose which operating system you wish to boot to.
Obviously, once you have removed the boot loader and rebooted the Vista operating system will still be on the partition you originally installed it on. To remove Vista completely you will need to Delete the partition that Windows Vista was installed upon.
To remove this menu, or more to the point, the boot loader, proceed as follows:
1/ Boot the PC to Windows Vista
2/ Ensure you are logged onto the Internet and then download the freeware boot loader utility VistaBootPro (www.vistabootpro.org)
3/ Once you have downloaded VistaBootPro, install it on your machine
4/ During Install VistaBootPro will install an icon on your desktop
5/ Locate the VistaBootPro icon and Right Click on it. Then, from the drop down menu, Click on the Run As Administrator option
6/ User Account Control (UAC) will pop up and ask for permission to run the program
7/ After you have given UAC permission - you must be the administrator or have administrator privileges - VistaBootPro will run.
8/ Once VistaBootPro opens, Click on the Bootloader tab
9/ In the Bootloader Maintenance section, Click on the Radio button next to the option marked 'Uninstall the Vista Bootloader (Used to restore Legacy OS) option' and then Click the Apply button
10/ Finally Reboot your PC
11/ On rebooting your machine you will boot directly into Windows XP (or an earlier operating system). No menu will appear.
12/ All that is left to do now is to delete the partition which originally contained Windows Vista. (Assuming you wish to remove the Vista partition from your hard drive).
