I had Dell Windows XP along time ago. I now have Windows Vista Business and I think it is Service pack 1. I pressed F12 and did diagnosis then it scanned right off the bat it says... "Error Code...


Hi. Error 0146 is pertaining to a failing hard drive. You can still try to reinstall Windows Vista by requesting for a CD from Dell by contacting them.

If they fail to send you a CD or if the error still comes up after reinstalling Vista, then you need to replace your hard drive.

Windows home edition will not let me in without my password.


Download Astrumi (Linux Live CD), as it has an option to remove or change the SAM file (password) in Wind0z3, so no 3 weeks of brute-force dictionary attack rainbow table cracking! SAMInside, Brutus and l0phtcr4ck are also good options (my favorite is l0phtcr4ck, as it can crack over the local subnet).

Cd r problem


Any cd rom device can read cd-r's.
Your disk could be scratched or your cd rom or cd/dvd device may need a firmware update. Basically updated software that tells the device that it can read the encoding on the disk that you are trying to view.

I have certain text on a CD disk that I would like to edit. Computer tells me when I try, that it is "read only". How do I change mode to "read/write" to permit editing?


CD's are normally "read only", so the edited files cannot be saved back to the same CD.

You need to copy the documents you want to edit to your PC, edit, then save them to the PC. At some point, you may want to create a new CD with the edited files.

Put the CD in the computer, open up "My Computer". Double click on the CD (probably the "D:" drive) and right click on the file you want to edit, and choose "Copy".

Now go to "My Documents" on your computer (you can use the Start button to find it), and open that folder.

Right click again, and choose Paste.

Doubleclick the newly pasted file, and Word will allow you to edit and save it. You might want to use "Save As" instead of "Save" and give it a different name. So, Doc1.doc becomes Doc1a.doc or something similar.

There are other ways to do this - I'm giving you the most basic method.
