Try to boot from windows7 cd-rom, without installing it, choose fixing errors.

if impossible at first try,

press F2-button while system boot(before windows takes over),
enter bios-setup and change

BOOT DEVICE PRIORITY to

1st: CD/DVD
2nd: Hard disk/HDD
3rd: (whatsoever availabe)
.
.

please remember to exit BIOS saving changes!
(press Esc button after changing the above, confirm: ...Exit bios saving changes ? - Yes)

if you are asked now :

boot from cd-rom or hdd ?

choose cd-rom, let it work and wait.
in the following, do not reinstall windows 7
but choose a repair option,
leave the setup, remove cd/dvd etc from all drives and reboot, wait.

the regular windows screen should show up...
if this does not work, please ask s.o. who knows around with win 7 or think of downgrading from win7 to winxp professional.
as it is older but reliable, still supported and some win-pro's use it.
win 7 features are available but you'll need time to set up the whole system, incl. drivers etc.

this could work...if not ask me to post some links



now retry to boot from Windows 7 CD-ROM,
do not install, cjoose repa

all i can recommend: if you are a bit into computers, think of swapping from windows 7

Firefox crase every 15 minuts plz fix 4 us


Mozilla's Firefox Internet browser is one of the most popular browsers in the world, second only to Microsoft's Internet Explorer.

As of April 2011, Firefox held a 21.63 percent share of the worldwide browser market. Unfortunately, problems with plug-ins, websites and general operating system incompatibility occasionally cause Firefox to become unstable and crash.

To prevent these crashes from occurring again, the cause of the crash needs to be identified so an effective fix can be implemented.

Take note of the action or circumstance that lead to the crash.
Pay particular attention to the timing of the crash and whether it occurred while launching Firefox, when trying to view a specific website, when attempting to download a file or at a seemingly random time.


Repeat the action that caused the crash to see whether it causes Firefox to crash again. Some crashes are caused by memory problems or other external factors and may be a one-time occurrence.

Repeating the action determines whether the crash was caused by errors within Firefox or if there were other factors involved.

Hold the "Shift" key down on your keyboard and relaunch Firefox.
This will launch the application in "Safe Mode," disabling all plug-ins and themes.

Repeat the action that caused the crash; if the problem was caused by a plug-in or theme then the crash will not occur this time.

Open a new Firefox tab and type "about:crashes" without the quotation marks into the navigation bar.
Press "Enter" to load the Firefox crash log listing.

Select the most recent entry and scroll through it to find the name of the plug-in, theme or other component that caused the crash.

Disable or update the component to remove the cause of the crash.
This information should be contained in the "Details>Signature" or "Details>Crash Reason" sections.

Open the Tools menu in Firefox and select "Add-ons" if you cannot resolve the crash problem by disabling or updating a plug in.
Scroll through the list of installed browser add ons, disabling add ons one at a time in an attempt to correct the error.

If the crash occurs when trying to view certain types of content, such as streaming video or other media files, focus in disabling add-ons that are related to that type of content.

Open the Help menu and select the "Troubleshooting Information" option if crashes occur only when attempting to download files.

Locate the "Application Basics" entry, then click the "Open Containing Folder" link to open the folder containing your Firefox profile.

Exit Firefox, then select the "downloads.sqlite" file in your profile folder and delete it.
This removes your download history, eliminating any problems with the file and allowing Firefox to create a new file when it launches again.

Update Firefox.
Some crashes are caused by problems within the Firefox program itself, such as problems with specific operating systems or crashes that occur only in new Firefox releases.

Updates may contain fixes to these Firefox crashes, eliminating the crash problem once the browser update is installed.

When I try to enter to my computer, this error appears: "The procedure entry point draw theme textEx could not be located in the dynamic link library Uxtheme.dll." I'm using Win 7.


If you have your Windows7 disk or a repair disk boot into that by pressing F12 or F7 upon startup (sometimes different, depends on your computer).
The Win7 disk should allow you to repair the system files.
Also some manufacturers include a recovery partition (special way to boot your computer so you can repair it). Often you can check your computers manual but normally you just need to press one of the F# on startup
