To remove a profile: first boot up into the profile that you want to keep. 1. right click [My Computer] and select [Properties] from drop-down list. 2. Select the [Hardware] tab from top of next menu. 3. Select [Hardware Profiles] button below. 4. Select the un-wanted profile and then select [delete] button and then select [ok].

You need to edit your boot.ini file Click on START, right click on MyComputer, click on properties. In the System Properties Window click on the Advanced tab at the top, then click on Settings under Startup and Recovery. Click on Edit to edit the startup options manually. it should open a notepad that looks similar to this: [boot loader] timeout=5 default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOW S [operating systems] multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Windo ws XP Media Center Edition" /fastdetect /NoExecute=OptOut Under the [Operating Systems] sections is where you will have multiple entries for profiles. Delete the entire entry for the profile you don't use. Save the file afterwards and that should do it. Good Computing!

How can I format my Sony vaio laptop vgn-nw13gh with my recovery disk please show me the steps


You will need a FULL WinXP system disk (asume your system is Win) either buy a new XP CD (i doubt you will get it)
but.....
to get a pirated WinXP system disk click the foll link....before that downlaod a software called UTorrent or BitTottent....google it
the foll link will downlaod the link file of Torrent and that will help you download the full version.....believe me this works....700MB ISO file...burn on CD/DVd using any CD burner software like Nero....

http://thepiratebay.org/details.php?id=3493182
once you download the full OS from piratebay...make a CD/DVD from the ISO image file that is obtained from piratebay....boot you system using that CD....BIOS in your system must be reset to boot from CD as the 1st boot seq in BIOS....

recovery disk will not work....

Help with Windows repair install?


If your data files are deleted then repairing will not help you have to use some recovery software but if some of the important files of windows are deleted then repairing will help and you will need the XP installation disc with SP1 or SP2.

How to solve pci.sys error during reformating of the hard drive


You have two ways to solve the problem of "Pci.sys Is Missing or Corrupt"
Error Message When You Start Windows.

1.Booting with WinXP CD to access the Recovery Console’s Repair option,
and then copy from WinXP CD the missing or damaged Pci.sys file to
Systemdrive:\Windows\System32\drivers folder , Exit and Reboot.

start the recovery console and type:
set AllowAllPaths = true
expand d:\i386\pci.sy_ c:\windows\system\drivers32 /y
If you don't type
set AllowAllPaths = true you can't access the windows folder.

2. Booting with WinXP CD and then perform a Windows XP Repair Reinstall
of the currently installed system.

If you need detailed assistance post with details of your Operating system
[WinXP Home vs WinXP Pro and the SP status i.e SP1 or SP2 ]

Seagate 750GB usb HDD asks to format,when opening by double click


The disk is either damaged or the USB interface is damaged.
1) You could try opening the external case and connect the disk to your computer directly (Using IDE/S-ATA cables)
2) Format the HD and use data recovery software/service.

Trying to use recovery disk for VGC-RB34G PC. Disk 1 will not start. Properties show it full but unknown file type. Disk 2 appears to be ok but will not operate without disk 1. How do I get factory...


Sometimes manufacturers use proprietary software to start their recovery disks and that perhaps is why the file type is unknown. You say that it will not start. Are you trying to run it from within windows or at start up. All of the recovery disks that I have worked with have to be started from the boot up. The computer has to be set to start up from CD. Try that and let us know what happens.
If you need help getting the computer to start from cd let us know and we will help you.

Boot into the recovery console and run; chkdsk /r Note the space between dsk and /r. If you are unsure of how to get into the recovery console, and have access to a Windows CD; 1. Boot the computer with the Windows CD 2. Select the option to enter the recovery console 3. At the prompt, type CHKDSK /R and press enter (this may take a while). If you do not have access to a Windows CD, but DO have access to a working system with a CD-R or CD/RW, download the XP Recovery Console CD ISO* and burn it to CD using DeepBurner (or whichever application you have that supports such (DeepBurner, Nero, MagicISO etc)). http://archives.mysteryfcm.co.uk/?f=System/Diagnostics/XP_Recovery_Console_CD_ISO * This CD ISO will load pretty much the same as the XP installation program but will NOT provide installation options, ONLY the recovery console. This can be used regardless of whether you are using 2000, XP, 2003 or Vista. Once you have the ISO burnt, boot the computer using the CD and go to the recovery console. Once at the recovery console, type the following and press enter; CHKDSK /R
