To resolve this problem, select the Delete restoration data and proceed to system boot menu option which enables the computer to perform a normal restart, instead of performing the restoration process while the computer is in Hibernate mode

Hello zxcv196870, the best thing to do to recover / replace your [Prefetch Data] back on your Computer is to do a "System Restore." Follow these instructions carefully The first thing you want to do is click on the "Start Button," paul7of9_50.jpg from the Desktop.
  • Next, click on "All Programs," scroll to find "Accessories."
  • Now, select the "System Tools." paul7of9_51.jpg
  • You will see in the next window that opens, "System Restore."
  • "This is very important!
  • "Once you click on the System Restore "shortcut," it will start to look for the last known time of a change in your computer, ie; deleting [Prefetch Data].
  • The System restore can take as long as a 1/2 an hour to run; so be patient.
!Warning:"Do not try to do any type of work. Do not 'touch' the [Keyboard] for any reason."
  • Let the (Restore) run it's configurations.
  • Once the "System Restore" finds the correct "Date and Time" of the event?
  • Choose the Date closest to the time of the 'occurrence'. paul7of9_53.jpg
  • Now, once again, there will be a message telling you not to do anything with the computer.
  • The System Restore will 'run' for a while; so once again be patient. paul7of9_52.jpg
  • The computer will then "Shutdown and Restart.
  • " Lo-gin if you have to; but!
!Attention: Do not touch the Keyboard once the Desktop 'window' opens, because the {System Restore} is still running. Wait! Until there is a message letting you know the {Restore} of your System was successful! "I hope all goes well, please let me know by giving a "Helpful Rating. Thanks for using Fix'Ya, paul7of9"

My Toshiba laptop satellite running windows xp isn't booting at all,it stops and gives me a message that windows didnt start successfully a recent change in s/w or h/w might have coursed this.

Hi friend, As you have mentioned that the laptop is not booting up, in that case what i would recommend is that as soon as you turn on the system press the key "F8" to get into the Advanced Boot Options menu.
In that menu select the option "Last Known good Configuration" and wait if it works or not.
In the same menu select the option " Safe Mode" If it boots up into the windows try the following steps to restore the system to previous date
1) Click on Start 2) Goto All Programs 3) Select Accesories > System tools> System Restore 4) In the new window select the option "Restore the system to previous date" 5) Select Next and you will see some restore points created. 6) Select the latest restore point that is a week before 7) Click Next 8) System Restore will start 9) Follow the instructions and restart the system in normal mode that is without pressing F8 this time.

Can't system restore


Ok, if you get a message your computer cannot be restored to this
date, the restore foldr is damaged.

There is actually something you can try, but i would suggest that you backup all the files you want to keep and the drivers you need and format your computer.

Method 1: Make sure that the System Restore service is running loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); To do this, use one of the following methods:
  • Look in Control Panel. To do this, follow these steps:
    1. Click Start, click Run, and then type compmgmt.msc in the Open box, and then press Enter.
    2. Expand Services, and then click System Restore Services..

      If the Status of System Restore Service is not Started, click Start on the toolbar to start it.
  • Open a Command Prompt window. To do this, follow these steps:
    1. Click Start, click Run, type CMD in the Open box, and then press Enter.
    2. Type Net Start at the command prompt to make sure that the System Restore Service is up and is running.

      If the System Restore Service is not listed, type net start "System Restore Service", and then press Enter.
uparrow.gifBack to the top Method 2: Make sure that System Restore is enabled on the drives where you want System Restore enabled loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); To do this follow these steps:
  1. Click Start, right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
  2. Click the System Restore tab.
  3. If the System Restore is enabled, the Status column of a drive will show Monitoring.
    If not, you can clear to clear the Turn off System Restore on all drives, and then click OK to enable it.
uparrow.gifBack to the top Method 3: Make sure that you have sufficient disk space on all the drives where System Restore is enabled loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); To do this, follow these steps:
  1. To check for free disk space, click Start, click Run, type diskmgmt.msc and then press Enter. Look at each drive System Restore is monitoring for free space.
  2. If the free space on any partition system restore is monitoring falls lower than 50 MB, System Restore will suspend and remove all restore points to free disk space. You should have already received a low free disk space message by now. System Restore will resume monitoring when free disk space reaches 200 MB.

    Note In most cases you do not have to have System Restore monitor Partitions/drives other than the one Windows is installed on. System Restore does not monitor data files.
uparrow.gifBack to the top Method 4: View the event logs to investigate System Restore service errors loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Click Start, click Run, type eventvwr.msc /s in the Open box, and then press Enter.
  2. Click the System category.
  3. Click the Source tab to sort by name, and then look for "sr" or "srservice." Double-click each of these services, and then evaluate the event description for any indication of the cause of the problem.
uparrow.gifBack to the top Method 5: Boot in safe mode and run the System Restore tool loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); To boot in safe mode follow these steps:
  1. Restart the computer. Immediately after the screen goes blank for the first time, or after the BIOS post ends, start taping the F8 key repeatedly. The Windows Advanced Options menu appears.

    If the menu does not appear, restart the computer and try again.
  2. Select Safe Mode, and then press ENTER. As files load they will scroll down the screen.

    Note Safe mode uses a minimal set of device drivers and services to start Windows. The default Microsoft VGA driver is used for display at 640 X480 resolution and in 16 colors.
  3. Log on to the Administrator account. If a password was never set, leave the password blank and press ENTER or click the green arrow.
  4. Click No in the safe mode information screen to start System Restore.
  5. Select Restore my computer to an earlier time, and then click Next to proceed to select a date with restore points available.
  6. Click Next to begin restoring the system to a previous state.
This comes from Microsoft's site under advanced system restore propperties, so if this does not work, then formatting the pc is the only sollution. Hope this can help you.

Kind regards
