splash_icon_quick_poll.gif CHECKLIST ib_right_arrow.gif How to troubleshoot Windows XP startup problems
One of the most common troubleshooting issues in Windows XP is the failure of a system to start up properly. These failures can be caused by a number of issues, including poorly written or malicious software, faulty device drivers, hardware incompatibilities, corrupt or missing system files and incorrect system configurations. Determining the source of the startup problem, and fixing it, is easier if you use a methodical, step-by-step approach.
If the system will not start in Normal Mode or Safe Mode
A Windows XP system that will not start in Normal or Safe Mode is not a good sign and may be the result of corrupt or missing system files, a corrupt registry, hardware drivers or failed services. Your first step is to press F8 during Startup and select the Last Known Good Configuration option from the Windows Advanced Options Menu. If Windows boots normally, check the event logs and hardware manager for clues as to what may have caused the failure. You may also want to check the Add/Remove Programs menu for any new applications that may have contributed to the failure.
If the Last Known Good Configuration fails, the next step is to start the Recovery Console by booting from the Windows XP Startup CD and pressing "R" to repair when the "Welcome to System Setup" screen appears, then press "C" to start the Recovery Console. The Recovery Console is a command line utility that can be used to identify and solve a number of issues in the event that Windows cannot start, including starting and stopping services and drivers. If you receive an error on startup stating that a system file is missing or corrupt, Recovery Console can be used to replace those files as well. For a list of available commands, simply type HELP at the command prompt. For more detailed information about the Recovery Console, check out Microsoft Knowledge Base article 307654.
If you are unable to determine if a driver or service is responsible for the startup failure, you should run the Checkdisk utility from the Recovery Console by typing CHKDSK at the command prompt. This utility scans your hard drive and checks for problems with the disk or file system, which may result in corrupt or missing system files. You should also check the system CMOS and BIOS settings for configuration errors or corrupt data. Note: CMOS and BIOS data corruption can occur as a result of a dead or weak internal battery. Check your motherboard documentation for details.
If you are still unable to determine the cause of startup failure at this point, you have the following options:

  1. Use System Restore to return your critical system files and some program files from a previous restore point. I've had mixed results with System Restore, but at this point, it is still worth a shot. System Restore can be activated from the Recovery Console. The advantage of using System Restore is that your personal files located in My Documents will not be overwritten or deleted. More information can be found in Microsoft Knowledge Base article 306084.
  2. Restore from a backup tape: While this method will recover your system, you will lose any data stored on your workstation that was created after the system was backed up. This method will also not help you identify the root cause of the startup failure, which may occur again.
  3. Perform an in-place upgrade (reinstallation): This process reinstalls the operating system but may result in data loss if not done correctly. The advantage is that it should return the workstation to a bootable state in which important files can be copied. Applications, service packs and system updates may need to be reinstalled for the system to function properly. For more information, see Microsoft Knowledge Base article 315341.
  4. Perform a parallel installation: A parallel installation involves creating a second Windows XP installation on the same workstation, either in a new folder or on a secondary (slaved) hard drive. The advantage of this approach is that it allows data to be recovered on the primary drive, assuming disk failure was not the cause of the startup issue. After any critical data is recovered, the original installation can be restored from backup source and updated with the new files.

Greetings,

Those files under the System32\Drivers folder are essential for the OS to work properly such as starting-up.

Try using the System/Repair Disk that came with your computer. Perform a "Repair" when asked. Worst, you may need to re-install the OS.

Keep us posted and thank you for using our service.

I have an wireless Epson NX 230 printer 32 bit printer with Win 7 operating sys Emachine 64 bit desktop. Printer driver process says operating system does not support the driver. Test page does not...


Officially MS says it's not support, and Epson does not have an updated driver. Sorry.
If I'm running a 64-bit version of Windows, do I need 64-bit drivers for my devices?

Yes, all hardware devices need 64-bit drivers to work on a 64-bit version of Windows. Drivers designed for 32-bit versions of Windows won't work on computers running 64-bit versions of Windows.

Description: This file contains the Epson Stylus NX230 Printer Driver v6.91. The Epson Status Monitor 3 is incorporated into this driver.

Compatible Systems: Windows 7 32-bit, Windows Vista 32-bit, Windows XP 32-bit

Options for Adding Serial Ports The serial port is prevalent on PC's ...


Options for Adding Serial Ports
The serial port is prevalent on PC's as well as scores of industrial, scientific and consumer devices, making it a convenient starting point for communications. Since RS-232 itself is only suited to short connections (50 ft. max.) many applications require that it be adapted to fit requirements. RS-422, typically used for extending RS-232 communications, provides full duplex communications between two devices. It can also provide one way communications from one master to several slaves. RS-485 communications standard allows cable lengths up to 4000 feet. It also provides very high noise immunity. Multidrop connections up to 32 different nodes can be made over a single twisted pair cable along with a signal ground connection.
This article summarizes the choices a system designer has when adding a serial (RS-232, RS-422, or RS-485) communications device. There are many different ways to add additional serial ports to your Desktop PC, Palm, or Laptop PC. USB, PCMCIA, PCI and ISA are some of the methods that will be discussed.
The Universal Serial Bus (USB) provides a high data rate and Hot Swap connection for PCs, providing an easy connection to a wide variety of multimedia and network USB devices. Generally considered to be for home or office use, USB is finding its way into Industrial applications.
PCMCIA Serial Ports are yet another way to add serial ports to a PC that has PCMCIA Slots available. Most Laptops today offer only one (if any at all) DB9 type serial ports. A PCMCIA Serial Card is a good way to add a serial port (or ports) to any laptop that is low on available serial ports (RS-232, RS-422 or RS-485).
PCI Cards are becoming more popular as a way to add serial ports to desktop PC's. PCI type slots are becoming the "norm" in standard PC's today, and PCI Serial Cards are an excellent way to add serial ports. The standard Desktop PC may only come with one serial port standard (if any serial ports at all). PCI Serial Cards use Software Drivers to address the ports to the PC.
ISA Cards are yet another way to add serial ports to the older desktop PC's. ISA type slots are becoming scarce in standard PC's today, but are still an excellent way to add serial ports. The ISA Cards are typically addressed using dip switches and shunts or jumpers to set IRQ's for each port. No Software Drivers are required with ISA style serial cards.
Palm OS PDA's may be connected to RS-422 or RS-485 data circuits using Palm adapters. These adapters offer total portability for collecting data and field service chores. The Palm device and the adapter will usually slip into a shirt pocket. Some models use the PDA's connecting cable, some include a cable and some are cradles that allow the PDA to nest in place and connect directly to the Palm base socket. PalmTerm Freeware allows you to transmit and receive data from the Palm serial port.

Can not load drivers do not have disks tried to down load from the net.


Maybe you're using a wrong set of drivers. Try to distinguish your operating system first to install the right set of drivers.

For example in Windows XP 32Bit is differ from Windows XP 64Bit Set of Drivers.

View System Information
  1. Click Start, and then click Run.
  2. Type winmsd.exe, and then click OK.
  3. When System Summary is selected in the navigation pane, locate Processor under Item in the details pane. Note the value.
* If the value that corresponds to Processor starts with x86, the computer is running a 32-bit version of Windows.

* If the value that corresponds to Processor starts with ia64 or AMD64, the computer is running a 64-bit version of Windows.

Drivers for M5641


There is no difference whatsoever between drivers for Vista Home, Vista Ultimate or, indeed, any version of Vista. They are all the same Operating System just with bits enabled or disabled accordingly.

Please can you clarify exactly which OS you have. Is it 32 bit or 64 bit? You will almost certainly have the 32-bit version and need to go to the appropriate page. 64-bit drivers will not work with 32-bit Os's and vice versa.

Just in case, here is the link for the drivers... yoiu just need to choose the exact OS remembering the 32 bit option (assuming you do have a 32-bit OS)

My computer keeps restarting why??


HI, your system has contracted a nasty virus that has destroyed a vital system 32 file that is needed for stability. You will have to preform a restoration to bring back stability and continuity. A good way to do this is to use the system restore disk that should have been delivered along with this unit. if you don't have this disk, you can use a Windows Xp install disk as well. be sure to wipe the partitions and reformat the drive to rid the system of this horrid virus attack.
