There may be a Restore section on the hard drive. As I recall, you hit one of the function keys, like f12 or f11, while it's posting.

If you have an hp, compaq, or emachines, you can contact the company about a free replacement restore disk. Other OEM makers may help you out, too, if you can find a contact number.

If it's Dell, and you are the original buyer, same deal, if it's still under warranty. If not under warranty, they will charge you. If you are not the registered owner - good luck with that.

You can call MS with your hard luck story (or one more creative), and maybe, if you get a live person on the line, they will feel sorry for you and send you a complimentary disk (no kidding).

All these "free disks" cost about $25 for "shipping."

I downloaded the contents of my Tascam DR-05 to my computer because it was full, but, instead of doing it as always, by just downloading the soundfiles, I copied the file folder dr005 to my computer,


Eric have you tried to do a "Quick Format"? If I'm not mistaken when that is done, you re-format your card and the small memory in the DR05. I had trouble with mine at first but when I did the formatting after I put the bigger 2GB memory card in the DR05 worked great. I record on "All Files" too, that seems to work well also.
Hope that helps,
Patrick

Remove password from hardrive in bios


Before your computer loads your operating system, it starts by running the BIOS program, which is extremely important because of its various options.

You can even set a password on your hard drive so that nobody can use your laptop computer without your password.

Once you put in the password into your hard drive, you can only remove it by accessing the BIOS system and deleting the password completely from the memory of your computer.

Save all of your important files on an external hard drive or similar storage device.
This is a precaution to avoid losing all of your files when making changes to the BIOS.

Then, restart your computer.
Wait for your computer's operating system to ask you to access the BIOS menu.

This may be at different times, depending on the manufacturer of your computer.
It can ask you when the manufacturer's logo comes up, or on a separate screen indicating for you to click the "F2" button on your keyboard to start.

Access the BIOS menu by clicking the key or combination of keys that you are informed to click. This information can be found in your computer's manual, but it changes between different companies.

Commonly used keys for this process are "F10", "F2" and "Delete."
Go to the BIOS option that contains your hard disk drive password.

The option that will lead you to this password varies immensely due to different laptop models, but it may appear as something such as "Advanced" or "Security."


Look for the option for changing the password, which should say "User Password," and then click "Enter." Put in the existing password and then click "Enter."

Do not enter any password into the blank fields asking you to enter a new password, and this will remove the password.

Exit the menu by clicking "Save and Exit." Click "Enter."

Every time i try to reformat my PC, it would ask the missing 3waredrv.sys to complete the installation. where and how can i download it? or how can i fix my problem. thank you


The file it's looking for is probably a SCSI or SATA driver. If you have a floppy disk with '3Ware' written on it, then at the beginning of the setup you are prompted to press F6 and put the floppy disk in. This drops the 3waredrv.sys file (and others) into the install.

HOW TO REMOVE THE ROOTKIT.TDSS caused by the Trojan virsus


Hi, You have to remove these to get rid of this Rootkit. This post is for an Advanced User Only!
Files and Processes:
  • Files which spread the Virus:
  • RkLYLyoM.exe, podmena.exe, file.exe, ~.exe, 7-v3av.exe, csrssc.exe (note that this is not CSRSS.EXE), 72631899.exe, 1776260179.exe, ucxmykkc.exe.
  • The above files will create processes and run while spreading the Virus and providing Backdoors to your machine as well as performing Remote Attacks on Servers.
  • This Rootkit and associated Trojan creates .sys (system files) to alter network configurations as well.
  • Delete these files.
  • _VOIDd.sys, _VOID[random].sys, UAC[random].sys, UACyylfjdaa.dll, TDSSnrsr.dll, TDSSmaxt.sys, tdssserf.dll, TDSSriqp.dll, TDSSciou.dll, TDSSoexh.dll, tdidrv2.sys, RkLYLyoM.exe, podmena.exe, tdssserv.sys, file.exe, ~.exe, 7-v3av.exe, csrssc.exe, 72631899.exe, 1776260179.exe, ucxmykkc.exe
  • Each variant of this is associated with one or more files in the above list. It drops .dll (dynamic link library files) as well. Dll files and Sys files are the actual performers in the background.
  • You have to remove these files from the startup as well. Using msconfig. From their you may be able to find additional files associated with this one as well. Verify by browsing. Browse by the file name. If you found that it is a virus, note the path and next time you will be able to remove it. I ll provide instructions at the bottom of this post.

  • Directories:
  • C:\WINDOWS\_VOID[random]\
  • Delete this as well.

  • Delete Registry values Associated with this.
  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\_VOIDd.sys
  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\_VOID[random]
  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\UACd.sys
Note: Random means the file name will be different for each instance.
  • Unregistering DLL files. The most important one.
  • You have to unregister these .dll files.
  • UACyylfjdaa.dll, TDSSnrsr.dll, tdssserf.dll, TDSSriqp.dll, TDSSciou.dll, TDSSoexh.dll.
  • The unregistering instruction will be provided at the bottom of this post.
You must delete your Temporary internet Files and Local Settings \ Temp. Located - Root:\Documents and Settings\[Admin account name - this may be either Administrator or any other account which has Admin Rights]\Local Settings\Temp. Note: Root is the Partition which has Windows Installed (Example C drive)
You must be able to see Hidden Files and Folders. Follow the steps...
You must clean your Browser Cache using Internet Options. Each and every browser has a place to clear the Cache. As an example "Google Chrome has it under Options -> Under the Hood -> Clear Browsing Data. Its better if you can disable Local Caching.
I recommend to do this in Safemode. Use F8 after restarting the machine. The select Safemode. Note: You may or may not find Processes associated with this RK however because they will not be loaded. If so you can use msconfig to locate "Startup" programs.
After everything done, flush your DNS. Get a Command Prompt (Start -> Run -> Type cmd.exe and hit Enter) Type this command and hit Enter. ipconfig/ flushdns
Contd...Post is too long...

Missing Operating System


Hi!

Dont worrie M8, all files can be saved if the disk is ok
I suggest you run the installation again, but when it comes to reinstall or repaire you select "REPAIRE", then the os will try to repair your system and not reinstall it, that will keep all things on the disk. If that dosent work you have to remove the disk, connect it to another pc/laptop and move the files she dont want to loose. Then put the disk back and reinstall it from the begining.
If you dont know how to connect it to another pc or have the needed cables to do it, i sugest you take the disk to a pc-repaire shop and ask them to help you save the files. They will copy all the files you want and store them on a cd/dvd/memostick. They can even tace a copy of the whole disk if you want.

Good luck
