my windows Vista Home Basic Edition does not show the Office when I log in. it shows only a green screen

Original title: green screen

my windows Vista Home Basic Edition does not show the Office when I log in. it shows only a green screen. I tried all the options in F8 mode with no result. How can I fix it without losing any information on the hard drive?


1 - do you mean that you get the green screen even in safe mode?

2 did you recent hardware or software changes to your computer before this problem?

If you are unable to start desktop even in safe mode, then you try to perform the verification and startup repair.

  • Windows Vista Home Basic Edition does not detect networks wireless scope.

    running Windows Vista Home Basic on my counter top and it will not locate wireless... period. I know at least 3 in the box and he is always telling me that there are no wireless networks detected.

    On a side note, I installed my router wireless on my laptop (so I know it works!) and have successfully installed on my desktop as well (or if the installation wizard tells me) the top round works on vista premium and office is vista home basic, but for some reason, the office is always telling me there are no available wireless networks. I went through the installation wizard for my router wireless twice now and still that it prove when I go to "connect to a network.

    As much as I know there is no 'Wireless' or switch to be turned on anyway... There may be a command prompt to enable the wireless function?

  • Acer Aspire laptop with Vista Home Basic Edition does not, System Restore does not, sfc, find corrupt files but do not repair. Need help!

    Hi, I have an Acer laptop Aspire with Vista Home Basic Edition that came pre-installed, so no records only the disk hard drive partition.

    I turned on my laptop today and it starts but the loading bar of stalls at the black screen with "(c) Microsoft Corporation" and dragging green. The slide bar will continue to drag, but nothing else happens which means that I understand even as much as the login screen. I rebooted and tried Windows recovery, but the only remedy to what he suggests is a restoration of the system, which does not have any point, I try to restore it.

    To remedy this, I have connected in safe mode and ran the SFC command prompt. It scans my system and told to find corrupted files, but he can't heal some. This is where my knowledge limit runs out. I don't know how to fix the files that the SFC cannot. (Also I created a journal using the findstr command prompt and checked but it say anywhere that it was unable to fix it so I'm not even sure how to identify corrupted files)

    As it's an Acer laptop, Aspire I'll try their eRecovery tool to return my computer to factory settings, but it won't work in safe mode, and as I said I can not connect normally. I tried alt and F10 at the initial boot screen when I turn on, it loads the windows files and shows the Acer "Please wait a moment" screen and then nothing happens again.

    I can't afford to get it fixed, and there is no chance I can get a new laptop. Any ideas/help? Thank you.

    2. When the Acer logo appears on the screen, press the left Alt and F10 keys.
    3. If you are prompted with a Microsoft Windows splash screen, press the Enter key.

  • Windows Vista Home Basic Edition keeps looping and will not start

    Windows Vista Home Basic Edition will not boot to the Welcome screen. It keeps restarting loop. I tried to go into safe mode, but who does not start too. Loops of safe mode and return to the start screen.

    I have a dell laptop and I just restalled operating system. I had Windows Update set to automatically download and install. PC worked great until the next day (after the time programmed for automatic updates). I'm assuming that the started after some windows updates when installed. Unfortunately, I can not enter in Windows or Normal or Safe Mode.


    If safe mode does not and you do not have a Vista DVD from Microsoft, do a repair disc to do a Startup Repair:

    Download the ISO on the link provided and make a record of repair time it starts.

    Go to your Bios/Setup, or the Boot Menu at startup and change the Boot order to make the DVD/CD drive 1st in the boot order, then reboot with the disk in the drive.

    At the startup/power on you should see at the bottom of the screen either F2 or DELETE, go to Setup/Bios or F12 for the Boot Menu.

    When you have changed that, insert the Bootable disk you did in the drive and reboot.

    Link above shows what the process looks like and a manual, it load the repair options.

    NeoSmart containing the content of the Windows Vista DVD 'Recovery Centre', as we refer to him. It cannot be used to install or reinstall Windows Vista, and is just a Windows PE interface to recovering your PC. Technically, we could re-create this installation with downloadable media media freely from Microsoft (namely the Microsoft WAIK, several gigabyte download); but it is pretty darn decent of Microsoft to present Windows users who might not be able to create such a thing on their own.

    Read all the info on the website on how to create and use it.

    ISO Burner:

    It's a very good Vista startup repair disk.

    You can do a system restart tool, system, etc it restore.

    It is NOT a disc of resettlement.

    And the 32-bit is what normally comes on a computer, unless 64-bit.


    Dell recovery options:

    Above is Dell to reinstall Vista from the DVD on your computer.

    And that way if you have a recovery partition on your hard drive.

  • I can't reinstall windows Vista Home Basic Edition to my Compaq presario laptop

    I want to format my 'C' drive and reinstall windows Vista Home Basic Edition for my 'compaq presario laptop.
    When I lived with my recovery disk, it has been fine until "loading windows files" and taking me to the recovery / restore point but not with the format options (GUI).


    With this HP Compaq recovery process, it's a different process than the installation with the Microsoft DVD

    There is a section slightly more than 1/2 at the bottom of this link from HP showing you how to reinstall Vista using their recovery disks.

    If you have any questions or problems with it, contact HP as it's the HP recovery process.

  • I can not connect on windows vista home basic desktop pc because of the former owner

    I can't log on to Windows vista home basic desktop pc because of the password previous owners is unknown


    Try the following.

    Using another PC, download the app from the following link and save it in your downloads folder.

    PC login now

    Once the download is complete, open your download folder and double-click on the installer - this will result in another file, which is the disk image (.) ISO) you need to burn to a blank CD.

    Now, you will need to use an app like ImgBurn to burn the ISO correctly on a blank CD - a guide on the use of ImgBurn to write that an ISO on a disc is here.

    When the disk has been created, shut down the PC you can not log on, press the ESC key as soon as you press the power button to access the Start Menu, insert the CD, select Boot Options (usually f9), use the arrow keys to select the CD/DVD drive and press enter - peut also have you to "Press any key" to boot from the CD if asked to.

    Follow the instructions on the guide here to remove the current password.

    I have a laptop Compaq Presario V 3000, purchased by me on May 28, 2008 in Bangalore, India (Reliance digital) and delivered to me preloaded with Windows Vista Home Basic with a label number key to the laptop. (The 20 product ID numbers is also known).

    It worked OK all along.

    (For the PAST 3 DAYS, I get the following pop-up message when I boot on):


    I'm confused by this warning that I have a lot of data stored in my laptop (with HDD of 160 GB and 2 GB of RAM).

    I'll be very grateful to expert MS Forum for helping me solve this problem of EMERGENCY, as I am only left with more than seven days!

    Thanking you,

    You should backup your data NOW by purchasing an external hard drive and copy your data files on it. Then, I would give the store where you bought it a call. If they do not, call the HP technical support immediately. MS - MVP - Elephant Boy computers - don't panic!

  • Windows Home Basic Edition does not connect to a grace wireless working group

    I'm running 3 computers on a workgroup that connects to the internet. A computer running Windows 7 Pro, another Windows XP Pro and the third is a laptop running Windows 7 Home Basic.  There are full between the 3 interoperability when connected via a LAN cable, even when the laptop is connected to the wireless router.  However, if I try to use the laptop without cable, it will connect to the router wireless as an unidentified Public network and therefore does not see the Working Group (and therefore there is no internet access).

    If I click on the icon of unidentified network in the center network & sharing, I expect to be able to select the type of network, I can use - i.e. knit - but instead I get a box indicating that it is a public network, unidentified without options.  I tried to use the difficulty Microsoft it 50725 - but he said he could not change the network settings and I should change in network settings - which I can't.

    In this mode, I can 'see' the laptop on the other two computers, but its network location is black (not the working group only when connected via cable) and if I try to open up the laptop I get an error message saying: it can not find the path.

    This is a recent problem that the system worked very well upward until a couple of there are days where I lost wireless connectivity. The signal strength is 100% (the router is normally less than 30 meters, although now is 1 meter away so I can plug the cable) and there is no other networks wireless within several km.  I have a total control through my browser to the router through the wireless link wireless, the material is so everything is OK - it takes a few adjustments to the software.

    Any ideas?

    Sorry for the delay in replying, I had problems to download all the drivers the most recent, but ultimately successful.

    Uninstall and reinstall the wireless card had no effect so I started the update or replacement of all other drivers as well.

    Replace the Bluetooth driver did the trick, even if it has been disabled in advance and it is always off - but for reasons that I doubt I'll never, understand which seems to have been the problem--for now

    Thanks for the advice - it always pays to be more radical than you ever thought necessary...

  • Vista Home Basic Edition does install in a dell inspiron 1440.

    I bought a laptop that did not come with an operating system because I happened to have a Vista Home Basic installation disc that came with my previous laptop. so I tried to install the operating system, but after that the display shows "windows is loading files...". "this message appears:

    Windows has encountered an error... file cannot be found or corrupted.

    file: windows/system32/boot/winload.exe

    error code: 0-xC0000001

    What does that mean? I tried twice to reinsert the disc and redo everything but shows same message. is there something wrong with the installation disc? Should what I do to fix this? Thank youi so much.

    Recovery of the computer disks are often related to the hardware of the computer that they came with.

    Also, you have rules of licensing:

    If Vista is preinstalled on your other laptop, it is classified as an OEM license and is not transferable.

    The license of Vista OEM is related to the original computer it is installed on and dies with the computer.
    You cannot transfer it to another computer/laptop

    See you soon.

  • Backup "to a network' grayed out for Windows Vista Home Basic Edition

    Dear Forum:

    Vista Home Basic SP - 2, Win XP Pro Service Pack 3 (signed on as "Administrator" on both machines)

    I'm trying to back up data residing on Vista Home Basic machine on a shared drive on Win XP Pro machine on an ethernet network.  When I run backup and restore Vista HB machine, backup "to a network' option remains greyed out.

    From now on, I can read and write in the public records of the Vista machine from the Win XP Pro machine and I can read and write to disk shared Win XP Pro machine from Vista HB machine.

    I apologize if the question has been discussed previously.  I appreciate all help to address this issue.

    -Kevin N

    I'm sorry, but Windows Vista Basic cannot save to a network location.  It can only back up to a local disk.

    Backup to a network location requires a more advanced version of Windows Vista.
