    XP Repair install

    Please read carefully and make sure you followed the warning links before initiating the Repair Install. You can print a text version for reference. repair.txt


    1. Boot the computer using the XP CD. You may need to change the boot order in the system BIOS so the CD boots before the hard drive. Check your system documentation for steps to access the BIOS and change the boot order.
    2. When you see the "Welcome To Setup" screen, you will see the options below
      This portion of the Setup program prepares Microsoft
      Windows XP to run on your computer:

      To setup Windows XP now, press ENTER.

      To repair a Windows XP installation using Recovery Console, press R.

      To quit Setup without installing Windows XP, press F3.

    3. Press Enter to start the Windows Setup.
      To Repair Install, press ENTER
      \r\n'); FP_changeProp(/*id*/'layer1',0,'style.borderStyle','double','style.borderWidth','3px','style.padding','5px','style.backgroundColor','#F9F4D5','style.backgroundImage','url(\'edgbkgnd4.gif\')'); FP_changeProp(/*id*/'layer1',0,'style.visibility','visible')" onclick="FP_changeProp(/*id*/'layer1',0,'style.visibility','hidden')" height="21" alt="To setup Windows XP now and Repair Install , press ENTER." src="http://www.michaelstevenstech.com/note.gif" width="15" border="0" /> do not choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the Recovery Console, press R", (you Do Not want to load Recovery Console). I repeat, do not choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the Recovery Console, press R".
    4. Accept the License Agreement and Windows will search for existing Windows installations.
    5. Select the XP installation you want to repair from the list and press R to start the repair. If Repair is not one of the options, END setup. After the reboot read Warning#2!
    6. Setup will copy the necessary files to the hard drive and reboot. Do not press any key to boot from CD when the message appears. Setup will continue as if it were doing a clean install, but your applications and settings will remain intact

Gateway login


Getting locked out of your Gateway computer can be frustrating, especially when you have school or work deadlines.
You can get locked out of your Gateway computer in cases where a password-protected screensaver became corrupt, or if the you have set the default screensaver to use a screensaver that does not exist.
Gateway computers come with Microsoft Windows XP and 2000, including the professional versions of both.
Knowing how to unlock your a Gateway computer can save you time and irritation.

Press the "Ctrl," "Alt" and "Delete" keys on your keyboard simultaneously to unlock your Gateway computer.
Type the last logged-on user's login information and click "OK" if you see a locked computer message along with "Only domain/username or an administrator can unlock this computer."
Press the "Ctrl," "Alt" and "Delete" keys once again when you see the Unlock Computer window disappear.
Log on as usual.
Method 2
Shut down the locked Gateway computer by using the Microsoft Windows Resource Kit Shutdown tool. This tool shuts down and restarts a Windows 2000- or NT 4.0-based Gateway computer. Note the dialog box that comes up called System Shutdown.
Wait for the shutdown timer to run out and see the Welcome to Windows box displayed on the screen.
Press "Ctrl," "Alt" and "Delete," which unlocks the computer.
Log onto your Gateway computer normally.
Method 3: Backup, Modify and Restore the Registry
Click "Start" and "Run," then type in the command below in the field box exactly as printed:
%SystemRoot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe
Click "Create a Restore Point," then click "Next" on the Welcome to System Restore page that appears.
Type any name for the restore point, then click "Create" on the Create a Restore Point page. Click "Close" after creating the restore point.
Perform this procedure before you make changes to the registry, just in case you make an error; otherwise, incorrect registry changes could create serious problems with your computer.
Click "Yes" if you receive a prompt to turn on System Restore at this point.
Clear the "Turn Off System Restore" check box by clicking on it, then click "OK," and repeat.
Click "Start," then type "regedt32.exe" (without the quotes) in search field box to modify the registry and unlock the computer. Press the "Enter" key on your keyboard.
Locate the scrnsave.exe value under the registry key below:
HKEY_USERS\.Default\Control Panel\Desktop
Click "String" on the Edit menu, type "logon.scr" (without the quotes), then click "OK."
Look for the ScreenSaverIsSecure value, then click "String" on the Edit menu, type "0," then click "OK."
Quit the Registry Editor
Click "Start" and "Run," then type the command below exactly as printed to restore the registry, then click "OK":
%SystemRoot%\System32\Restore\Rstrui.exe
Click "Restore My Computer to an Earlier Time" on the Welcome to System Restore page, then click "Next."
Note your computer may already be selected to restore to an earlier time--in this case, just click "Next."
Click the system checkpoint on the Select a Restore Point page.
Click "Guided Help (Registry Backup)," then click "Next" on the "On This List Select the Restore Point" area.
Click "OK" if you see a System Restore message listing all the configuration changes it will make.
Click "Next" when you come to the Confirm Restore Point Selection page.
System Restore will now restore the Windows XP configuration you had at an earlier time, and then it will restart your Gateway computer.
Log onto your computer as usual, and then click "OK" when you see the System Restore Confirmation page.

WE changed ISP from Magma to Bel but Magma still hangs onto the operating system,how can I get rid of Magma


The only thing you can do from that point is reformat the computer if it's such a big deal. When the computer is set completely, since it's in the OS already, you can't really remove it without registry edits which can be a complex task for individuals who aren't use to IT work.

I want to get rit of babylon but a part of it stays on my computer and say cannot delete and all the time when I start my computer I have a sign error.


If you are comfortable making registry changes ****DO SO AT YOUR OWN RISK, INCORRECT REGISTRY EDITING CAN LEAD TO SYSTEM INSTABILITY OR INABILITY TO BOOT**** then i would suggest opening the registry editor (start>run>regedit) and removing any keys under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software which reference Babylon. Also, make sure (since this is happening at startup) that you have run MSconfig (start>run>msconfig) and deselected any references to Babylon there. Also, check your system variables (right click computer>properties>advanced>environment variables) and be sure that there is not a PATH that points to Babylon left over.

**As with any registry editing make sure you perform a complete registry backup, or at the very least manually set a system restore point before you atempt any of this.**

Let me know how it works out, or if you need further assistance.

REGEDIT


regedit - to disable this file from running, delete it. if you want to turn off the registry, boot computer into safe mode (tapping f8 key while booting). if you need to manually uninstall a program, do an F3 search in the registry for the program name as a search string. there can be as many as 500 registry entries for the program... if you adopt the f3, delete, enter, f3, delete, enter, you may be able to uninstall the program's registry entry in as little as 15 minute to 1 hour... best of luck, I am not responsible if you delete a wrong value and crash your computer .... heheheeheheh.
