Risk of losing data by re-booting CD-ROM recovery disk


Copy off your data to another computer before recovering. A recovery usually restores to factory settings and loses all data.
You could boot to Ubuntu or Linux and copy your stuff that way, then when restored, copy it back.

My computer keeps showing blue screens, and my software is corrupted. How can I restore my files without the WINDOWS XP CD?


The Windows XP installation CD includes an option to repair an existing Windows XP installation. Using this option allows you to reinstall Windows without losing the files, personal data and programs you already have on the system. To take advantage of it, just place the CD into your CD or DVD drive on your PC and reboot the computer. During the installation you will be prompted if you wish to use the recovery console to repair a Windows installation. The recovery console is rather limited in its use, so just press the Enter key to proceed with the installation as you would normally.

blank.gif Press F8 to continue past the Licensing Agreement.

blank.gif The next screen should display a prompt asking you if you wish to repair an existing installation. Select your Windows installation (most likely it is the only one) and press R.

blank.gif This will begin the repair and reinstallation of Windows. The installation will copy files to the hard drive, reboot the system, and then proceed just like a normal installation. Follow the prompts just as you normally would any normal Windows installation.
When the installation completes, you should still be able to access all of your documents and installed programs.

Hi id like to reboot my vista without having to download anything or using the disc


> reboot Vista without ... using the disc

Impossible.

Instead, save all your data and music and E-mail and contact files to an external disk-drive,
and then use the disc to reinstall Vista. Then, reload your data and music.

I want to completely reboot my computer so it will turn to the original settings like when I first bought it. My account fails to log on and I cannot get to my files. I would rather reboot my whole...


If you're willing to lose all of your data (files, bookmarks, etc.) then what you want to do is a "system restore" or "factory reset." That will reset the contents of your computer's hard drive back to the day you bought it. You will need to boot off of the recovery partition or the restore CD/DVD that came with the computer. Some computer come with one or the other. A call to tech support can talk you through it.

DISC DRIVER BROKEN ,NEED TO PROGRAM WEBCAM TO PC


I was trying to help getting the drivers online but for that camera it seems to be tricky.

I would suggest the following:

in another computer attempt to create an image file of your driver cd as you mentioned you still have it (I strongly suggest you don't lose it), then with a usb thumb drive move that image into the vista computer (the one that does not have the disc tray working). now for you to create a image iso file on the other computer (virtual image of your cd) you need nero or magiciso or another program to create iso files from a cd, now to read that image on your cd-trayless computer you can use a program called magic disc.

there are other programs you can use to make iso image files that are free

free alternatives to nero

magic disc
- this is free and it will create a virtual cd drive on your computer without cd tray, you just need to mount the iso file you created with the other programs and it will work like a cd drive so you can installation cd without ever inserting the actual cd.

good luck!

Thumbnail option is not available while viewing the photos


if you have same OS (operating system) disk or recovery disk which has been currently installed in your PC/Laptop then follow these instructions:
insert your os or recovery disk in to cd/dvd drive then
go to Start>Run then type in "sfc /scannow" without quotes and hit enter.
it will takes few minutes to restore your all settings back (it just restores only OS settings so you wont lose any files and folders) so just let it run until it's done.
once done just reboot system your system then you will be good to go.
Note: there is space between "sfc and /" so if you don't hit space then it wont let you go.
Thank you.

My windows vista is running a lot slower after the service pack 1 update and i would either like to remove that update or reboot my computer to its original state. How would I do that?


To uninstall an update, go to the control panel (Start --> Control Panel). Select Add/Remove programs. When this launches, check the "Show Updates" box in the top of the window. Scroll to the Microsoft or Windows section, and you should see the Service Pack 1 update. Clicking on this gives you a button to remove it.
