When you first bought your PC or laptop, you would have been prompted by Windows Vista to create recovery discs, either CD or DVD. If you did this and still have the discs then you can simply put the recover disc into your DVD drive and re-boot the PC from the DVD drive (you may need to change the boot options in the BIOS or via a function key at boot-up).
If you did not create any recovery discs then there is a small possibility that there is a recovery partition on the hard drive. During boot-up, look at the text on the screen that tells you which button to press to get into the BIOS setup utility. There may be an option to start the recovery process, which would access the recovery partition.
If you have not got the recovery discs or a recovery partition then you will need a Windows Vista Home installation disc. The product key should be on a label on your PC or laptop.

How to reinstall safari that had came factory on my iPad ??


I think you can't delete Safari as it's part of the (operating) system.
See if this

helps.
" by simply resetting the home screen in Settings, Reset at the bottom, and Reset Home Screen. Changes all your special setting, but brought bac Safari from wherever he managed to hide it. It works the same on iPad. "

How do i change XP Pack 3 to Windows 7


Hi, you need to re-install the operating system (OS). If you need the back up, copy the files in your Desktop & My Documents (because these items are in C drive) to another drive. After that insert windows 7 CD in your drive & restart the machine. Press F12, it'll shows the boot order. Select CD drive. OR change the boot order in BIOS. After restarting It'll shows PRESS ANY KEY TO BOOT FROM CD. press any key & continue your job.

Warning : Pls make sure that you are installing the OS in to the 'C' drive, otherwise you will lost your back up.

Hi.

The "tfght" message means that some of the files, folders and sub folders are compressed.
Boot the Windows 7 DVD, choose Custom install, on "Where do you want to install Windows" screen, click on Load Driver. Now use the mini-explorer which pops up to rightclick on System HD then choose Properties. Uncheck "Compress Drive to save Disk Space" for All Files and Sub-Folders. Restart.
That should solve the problem.
However you may have to start again. Click on the link below for an in-depth guide on how to dual boot XP and Windows 7.

I can't setup opreating system on my computer


Try to use a LiveCD like PCLInuxOS to start your computer.

If the LiveCD works you can install the OS from it.

Sometimes you have to change the boot order in the start screen or in BIOS to use the CD or DVD drive.
