I would suggest you to follow these methods.

Method 1

Last known good configuration
It's a Windows startup option that uses the most recent system settings that worked correctly. Every time you turn your computer off and Windows shuts down successfully, important system settings are saved in the registry. If a problem occurs, you can restart your computer using those settings. For example, if a new driver for your video card is causing problems, or an incorrect registry setting is preventing Windows from starting correctly, you can restart your computer using Last Known Good Configuration.
1.Remove all floppy disks, CDs, and DVDs from your computer, and then restart your computer by clicking the Start button, clicking the arrow next to the Shut Down button, and then clicking Restart.
2.Do one of the following:
·If your computer has a single operating system installed, press and hold the F8 key as your computer restarts. You need to press F8 before the Windows logo appears. If the Windows logo appears, you'll need to try again by shutting down and restarting your computer.
·If your computer has more than one operating system, use the arrow keys to highlight the operating system you want to start, and then press F8.
3.On the Advanced Boot Options screen, use the arrow keys to highlight Last Known Good Configuration (advanced), and then press Enter.
4.If your computer has more than one operating system installed, use the arrow keys to highlight the operating system that you want to start by using Last Known Good Configuration, and then press Enter. Windows will then resume starting normally.
Method 2
Chkdsk (Chkdsk.exe) is a command-line tool that checks volumes for problems. The tool then tries to repair any that it finds.
1.Boot from the DVD
2. Select the Language
3. Click on "Repair your Computer" on the Install now screen
4. Click next on the System Recovery Options screen
5. Click on Command prompt.
6. Type the command chkdsk and press enter
Method 3
Offline system restore.
1. Boot from the DVD
2. Select the Language
3. Click on "Repair your Computer" on the Install now screen
4. Click next on the System Recovery Options screen
5. Click on System Restore.
6. Choose the date to which you want to restore

How do i fix error ofoo:0244 and ofoo:1a44 (msg block 16867582, 46028639 & 111595250), please? I get these codes when I start my pc


Hi,
I would suggest you first try the Start Up Repair for Windows XP.
1. Just insert the Windows XP installation CD that came with your computer then restart the computer.
2. You should get a prompt to start the computer from the CD drive, if not you need to enter BIOS settings to set the start/boot up mode so that your computer will boot up first from the CD.
3. When you see the blue screen, let the computer load everything and when it's done choose "To set up Windows XP now, press ENTER"4. Press F8 to agree to the License Agreement 5. Choose "To repair the selected Windows XP installation, press R"
Windows will then start the repair process. Do not worry all your data and settings will be retained.

If above solution does not work then,Use Recovery Console.
1. Just insert the Windows XP installation CD that came with your computer then restart the computer.2. You should get a prompt to start the computer from the CD drive, if not you need to enter BIOS settings to set the start/boot up mode so that your computer will boot up first from the CD.3. When you see the blue screen, let the computer load everything and when it's done press R to repair Windows XP using Recovery Console4. On the Recovery Console, choose the installation you would like to log on to (for example c:\Windows)5. Type Chkdsk /p /r on the Recovery Console and your computer will begin to check the hard drive for error and recover data.6. Once Chkdsk is completed, type exit then press Enter. Computer should restart. No need to boot from CD at this point. You can take out the Windows installation CD.

Hope this helps. Glad to be of service.

Hi,
power on the system and as soon as you press the power button keep tapping the F8 key .this should take you to windows advanced option menu.select safe mode and press enter.this should take you to the safe mode where minimum and basic services are running.then
press start>run>type msconfig>this should pull up a window
the last tab would be startup.click on start up and select disable all, click on ok and restart the system.if this time system goes to normal windows this means some program is causing the issue at the time of start up.
if it doesn't go to windows then go safe mode and follow the same steps and this time click on services.click on hide all microsoft services and disable the rest.and reboot.
if this goes to normal windows in any of above 2 steps this means some service or some program is causing the issue.and you can go back to safe mode and enable all and eliminate one by one.this way you will come to know which program is causing issue.

IF THIS DOESN'T EVEN GO TO SAFE MODE THEN

Xp windows software password breaking software


The easiest way is to do a Repair install and during it to reset the admin password: shortly after the Copying Files stage ends the pc reboot and will resume automatically with the standard billboard screens and you will notice Installing Windows is highlighted. When you see the Installing Devices progress bar, press SHIFT + F10.  A command console will now open up giving you access to your system.
At the prompt, type NUSRMGR.CPL and press Enter to access your User Accounts in the Control Panel.

12. Now simply pick the account you need to change and remove or change your password as you prefer.

When i start my laptop it wont start windows, it just goes straight to a windows error recovery screen, it says windows failed to start. a recent hardware or software change might be the cause. it...


I recently had the same problem. I also thought it was a windows update that caused this: forced shutdown, startup repair, etc. The last time it did startup repair it could not repair it. Lucky for me my pc still had one month of warranty left. So after leaving it with the "pro's" for a week, I called to say what's up, figured it out yet? The techs told me that they had run every diagnostic test available and all the hardware had passed safely. So I asked what it could be and they said, more than likely, that Windows Vista software had somehow become corrupted- the only repair to fix this? a complete recovery. They offered to do a recovery for me for $130- lose all info except what's on recovery partition.
(No, thanks, I'll do it myself.) Went online, found how to start recovery (Alt + Fn + F11, for my Gateway DX4710), did it myself, works fine now, haven't had a problem since.

On a side note, if your RECOVERY software becomes corrupted, you will need recovery disks to fix this. I got lucky this time, but bought a set of those (JIC) for 20$.

I now do a backup at least once a month so it won't be a TOTAL loss should it ever happen again.

As a worst case scenario, if you need to figure out how to recover your computer, looks like HP owns Compaq. You could start here:

If you have another computer available you can make a bootable cd that will run a program to reset your admin password. Several of those programs are discussed here. Good luck to you.

Forgot my admin password


Hi smt35216,

Regarding the issue with your password, one possible option to resolve it is using the system restore using the windows vista cd or using the boot advance option.

When you turn on the system, after you pressed the power button to turned it on just keep on tapping F8 key on the keyboard (depending on the system model) until you see an option to boot to "repair my computer". Follow the instructions. When you are in the Recovery option, select system restore and restore the settings back to the working date.

If system restore won't work. Last resort is to reinstall your Windows Vista. You may also ask you computer manufacturer if they have a recovery partition of your hard drive to restore your computer back to factory defaults.

Regards,

Jeff
