What to do when my PC crashed with BOD and calls for a previous version of Windows?

First of all thank you for all the help.

I already posted this question in response to my previous thread but I don't know if everyone saw that since is a response.

And now the sad news.
I am currently typing this laptop for my wife because my PC is completely crushed.
After being able to finally load these SPs and all my drivers and other software, it seemed that it worked.
I always tried to avoid the automatic update because everything seemed ok.
Whenever I have had more software installed on my pc I set up the new restore point.
In fact twice because the third time I typed system3 and press ENTER to create the new restore point I had immediately the Blue Screen of Death that I'we heard about before.
So I tried to re - install Windows again, but for the first time that I am not even able to do.
He said: Windows didn't start because the following file is missing or corrupted \WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM
Then he said to press r in the first screen to try to resolve what I did.
With my original XP cd in, it took me for Windows set up where I faced another problem (new).
He said: Setup cannot find a previous version of windows installed on your computer.
He asked me to insert my original cd with NT, 95 or 98 on it.
OK - I've upgraded from 98 years and I still have this start up par 3 1/2 98 but after moving so fast and technology upgrades for my Office Perrine drive seemed like the size of space.
What are my options to resolve this problem?
My HD could be fried?
Couldit be some project of pirates or viruses?
I 2HDs a C: 40giga.old Western digital that I had my Windows and second giga D: 120 which was more for backup and storage.
After having all these problems I always C: formatted and reinstalled Windows but never really messed with my D: drive.
Could there be something on D:, even after fresh Windows would keep jump on C:?
Also why it asks me to insert the 98 now and not more recent before when I formatted and resettled C: windows.
Once again thanks for your help.

I have everything working fine now.

Here is the link to which fixed my problem.

  • Hi, how do I change the orientation of the page with headers and footers for facing pages


    How to change the orientation of the page with headers and footers for facing pages in CS5

    Turning the page is only for the formatting of data - the page is not literally transformed for printing.

    In most print even if the pages of a book are enabled for the landscape, the header and the footer are still in the same position.

    If you need pages in landscape mode with headers and footers in a different location - you need to do these pages in the section "Master Pages" of the Pages panel

    Then apply these new Master Pages to the pages in your document.


    Note - it is not usual to have a different orientation for the headers and footers.

  • HP Setup crashes with a runtime error for interface C309-m software

    I am running Windows 7 64 bit.  All operating system updates are installed.

    I need to update the software to interface with my printer HP Photosmart Premium C309-m.  The current software is out of date.  I can't start the scan from the printer, and only my account on the computer recognizes that I have a printer.  Several analysis diagnosis on the State of HP Scan Doctor tool that some software components seem to be missing.  The printer itself seems to work very well.

    When I try to update the software C309-m via HP Print/Scan doctor, software downloads, extracted, then runs and crashes with a runtime error.  The error box comes from the Microsoft Visual C++ run-time library and the crash of Setup runs is the appdata/local/temp/7zS3DA1 directory that I seem to have several similar directories that were not cleaned from previous installation attempts.

    Any suggestions on how to get a successful installation of the C309-m software would be appreciated.

    Original title: How can I fix the Win7 Installer

    Is there a way to repair just the installer on Win7?

    I have little if difficulties to install other applications and the only other solutions I've seen online say to reinstall Win7, and I'm not about to go there, then reinstall all my other applications just to do Office work.

    Hi Odee,

    The problem is most likely a corrupt Windows Installer problem.

    In addition to the suggestion of BurrWalnut , please make sure that the Windows Installer service is enabled.

    Step 1:

    The Windows Installer service can be disabled on the computer.

    a. go to "Start "-> "run ", type "services.msc " and press the "Enter " key.
    b. double-click on the service named "Windows Installer ".
    c. check the value the "start type: " field. Is currently set to "Disabled ", then that's the problem. Change it by selecting 'Manual ' in the menu dropdown.

    Step 2:

    Now, Uninstall all traces of Office applications and the reinstall it.

    If you are unable to uninstall, use this link to uninstall.

  • Connect the TV (with sound) and monitor for Optiplex 390

    Here is my system info:

    OptiPlex 390 small footprint

    Windows 7 64 bit

    Intel Chipset H61

    Intel HD 2000 (with HDMI and VGA) graphics card

    Map of AMD Radeon 6350 512 MB video (with 2 DVI splitter)

    I need to connect 1) HD TV with the sound via HDMI and 2) monitor via VGA to this system (no sound).  I did a lot of research on the Internet but can't find a definitive answer if my system will support both views.  Can anyone confirm if one of the three options below does not work, or any other ideas?

    Option 1: remove AMD card, connect the HDMI TV, connect the VGA monitor.  I've seen conflicting information if the HDMI and VGA ports can be connected at the same time.

    Option 2: Connect TV: dispatcher--> DVI HDMI adapter DVI-->--> TV, monitor connect a HDMI cable: dispatcher DVI DVI VGA adapter--> monitor-->.  It should work, but if someone can confirm if the AMD Radeon 6350 supports audio through DVI to TV?

    3rd possibility: buy another video with HDMI and VGA card.  I'd rather not spend more money... I have six systems to connect!

    Thank you in advance for your help!

    Hi Ozone72,

    Intel HD Graphics 2000 which was shipped with OptiPlex 390 supports two independent screens. Which means that you can connect TV for VGA and HDMI monitor, so that AMD card must be removed from the computer.

    Please try it and return back if it worked.

  • I bought a pc that has win7 ultimate installed... updated ive made a new installation of a new ssd, don't know what previous version of windows was on the system before

    How do ifind what version of windows I had before it has been upgraded to win 7 ultimate? I have had this for 1 year (bought secondhand) no probs, just updated my pc and installed a new and it does not accept the cd key? If it wasn't authentic I questions since I use first, so why question now?

    Please help as I can't be bothered giving microsoft £130 for the inconvenience
    I just go through the most popular versions and see if I have the chance? or are there easier ways to detect previous versions?
    Thank you

    The only way to know is to contact the original owner or check the chassis of the machine to see if there is a certificate of Authenticity sticker attached to it. It will identify which edition an original version of Windows is preinstalled on the machine:

    COA certificate of authenticity:


    If you do not, you may have to invest in a full version license.

  • Satellite C660 - 2 EV crashed with BSOD and won't start

    My laptop Satellite C660 - 2 EV running Windows 7, without apparent reason crashed to blue screen of death, after which it would not restart.

    I tried to reboot in safe mode with the function keys, but it is the extent of loading: windows\system32\drivers/classpnp.sys and then just sitting there. Different Internet stations, it would appear that there is no definitive answer to this problem. It is recommended to recharge using recovery disks or hidden image.

    I can't access the user manual as it is on the laptop so I've referenced various positions on the internet. I had created for repair and recovery disks when I bought the laptop and so on to different positions, I started my system with the repair disk and the process began.

    Unfortunately, the screens that appeared were different from those in positions and as I don't have access to a manual, I don't know if I'm following the correct procedure.

    Can someone provide me with a PDF for a C660 laptop user manual - 2 EV?

    If someone can advise me how to reload Windows 7?

    Thank you in advance.

    S user guides document can be downloaded from http://www.toshiba.eu/innovation/download_manuals.jsp
    Anyway, if you created the recovery disc please start your laptop and press f12 to get into the boot menu. When menu of startup appears on-screen set recovery disc 1 into the optical disk drive and choose the CD/DVD device as a boot device and press ENTER.

    Installation should start. What you need to do is just follow the menu on the screen. It should be similar as sown on http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/HTD1303440001R01.htm

  • What to do when I plug an iPod classic and ikon under devices in iTunes don't highlight to make selections

    I have an old classic iPod and a brand new iMac from 2015. When I connected the iPod to download playlists, I had an ikon on the desktop, momentarily, but then disappeared. I have ikon iPod in the devices menu (version 12.3.3) iTunes, but it will not highlight to make the choice to download music manually. The computer told me something... What is the problem, and that, anyway, how I eject the iPod manually if I chose to...

    With the current iTunes, you do not select the iPod under devices in the sidebar.  The iPod appears as a button on the device on the horizontal bar that runs through the iTunes screen.  See screenshot below of the window of my iTunes (top left), showing the camera button for an iPod (circled in red).

    By clicking on the iPod touch is equivalent to selecting under devices for older iTunes.  You will see the settings screen for the summary of the iPod.
