    • Windows 7 won't boot

      Windows 7 fails to start and continue a loop to the start screen. I tried to use the Launcher to startup repair, but it does not solve the problem and this brings me to the startup configuration. I've tried safe mode, but it does not work and leads to the start screen. I also tried the "last known good configuration', but it did not work. I tried all F8 options, but each of them a loop to the start screen. I tried to go to the BIOS Setup, but it requires me to have a password, I don't know, nor have I created. Back door passwords do not work for me, and the password is 'hidden '. I don't know any other ideas to solve the problem.

      You MAY be able to start using a system repair disc.  If you do not, you will need to find another job Windows7 system with the same number of bits (32 or 64) as yours.  Right click on the computer to see what is yours.

      Take a blank writable CD or DVD with you.  Globe start, all programs, Maintenance.

      Start your computer with the system repair disc.  Who can take an intervention such as pressing the right key of F for a list of startup.  Dell and many others, it is the F12 key.  You start the computer and immediately start pressing that key about once per second - in the same way you have to F8.

    • Only UEFI won't boot Windows Installation DVD

      As you can see on my subject matter, my phone W520 won't boot from my Windows 7 Installation DVD when it is set to UEFI mode only. I get no error or anything, just the screen goes black for a second and go back to the Start Menu and when I select the DVD player. For what it's worth, my hard drive is already partitioned GPT, and I need to repair the installation.

      Before you ask for help, I just want to mention that I created this particular Installation DVD of Windows 7 using the all-in-one tutorial that I have 32-bit and 64 - bit options all on the same disc. The drive starts very well in boot mode "Legacy/UEFI", so I don't know what the problem is. Someone saw this?

      EDIT: I followed this tutorial: and I'm in step 14.

      I've just formatted my laptop and reinstalled Windows 7.

      While reinstalling all the drivers, I noticed that Windows doesn't recognize / find my wireless adapter device.

      The real problem is that I don't know on which is my laptop wifi adapter. So I tried the 3 drivers I found here:

      But none of them worked (in fact, the system even allow me to install).

      I also installed the HP connection manager, who said that my wireless device is 'disabled in Device Manager.

      I went to the window manager devices, but under "Network adapters" I see only the controller PCI Realtek.

      What should I do? I really need my WiFi adapter to work.

    • Satellite C50 won't boot to the top


      My son satellite C50 won't boot to the top. It is connected to the power grid and will arrive at the password screen but as soon as you type goes into shutdown. Any suggestions please?

      Thanks in advance.

      You write about Windows or BIOS password?

      In any case, on this virtual path, it is not easy to give an exact explanation what can be wrong there.
      Your son of many important data stored on this machine? If this isn't the case, you should try to reinstall the OS and test it with the factory settings.

      What you can try is to enter the BIOS settings and leave the machine 5 minutes to see if cell phone will go OFF. If this isn't the case, set the BIOS to the default settings and try again.

      Is the cooling fan may be strong at the start of the machine?

    • HP mini 110-1129nr with windows xp home edition, following the file is missing or corrupt \windows\system32\config\system model doesn't have a cd/dvd drive. Help, please!

      HP mini 110-1129nr with windows xp home edition, on said boot computer could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt \windows\system32\config\system computer has no cd/dvd drive. Computer does not load in safe mode, I ran disk hard main test self test it says completion test: failure, check the status: 7 (filled with the read element of the test failed). Help.

      You need an external DVD drive to get the repair will.

      Also the device you own does not seem to have built in the recovery partition. I'm not sure about later versions of this machine, however, it is best to check with HP.

      The problem is that there is a corruption of the registry on your OS or the system could not find where the registry files are due to system files or boot corrupted file.

      A repair can be made with an external DVD, the worst case, is that if the repair doesn't work you reinstall Windows.

      Hi Albert

      You can try to reset as Winston has suggested that he will solve the problem. Before attempting to reset the PC, you can try refreshing the computer and check.

      When you refresh PC applications provided with your PC or you installed from Windows Store will be reinstalled, but all the apps you have installed other Web sites and DVD is deleted. Windows puts a list of applications on your desktop after you refresh your PC.

      I hope this information helps,

    • Equium A100 PSAA43: CD rom drive won't boot from any CD


      I have a problem with the start on equium a100-psaa43 procedure.
      The problem is the cdrom won't boot any cd
      I mean recowery system or any other cd boot as a Live CD.

      My BIOS version 1.5
      I put in place a correct sequence in the bios Setup. I mean 1. Secondly, CD-ROM, is my hard drive.

      What can I do to fix this?

      Thank you.


      First of all we should know if the CD rom drive can read any CD.
      Have you tried to read from the Windows OS CD? The operating system recognizes the CD inserted?

      If not, then possibly the ODD drive malfunctions and, therefore, it s not possible to start from the middle.

      Anyway, you can boo from the CD in different ways. First, you can press F12 and you will get a boot menu. There, you can choose bootable devices.
      In the second way, you can try to press the C key immediately after starting the laptop. This button starts the CD player.

    • My pc says that windows does not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: \WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM.

      My pc says that windows does not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: \WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM. It is said it can be repaired by using the original installation CD, but we do not have. Any ideas please?

      The file is missing or corrupt is one of your files in the system registry.

      By far, the best way to recover from this is to go to another computer and create a free Hirens Boot CD.
      Download Hirens: <> > (link at the bottom of the icon of the disk)
      Hirens CD burning <> >

      Once you create the CD, and then start your system of problem with this CD.  In the first window, select "Mini Windows XP" and wait for the system to start.  When it starts, go to the Hirens Boot CD menu and select
      Register-> Registry Restore Wizard.
      then follow the prompts.  This wizard will return a copy of your registry database from backups that are stored with your system restore points.  After the restoration, stop, remove the CD and restart.
