Windows vista Home premium recovery question - how to get the source for windows vista home edition premium as the recovery does not work since the recovery partition

How to get the source to windows vista Home premium recovery is not from the recovery partition and gives me an error message



Contact the computer manufacturer and ask them to send you to vista recovery disks to reinstall the operating system back as it was when you bought it

they do it for a nominal cost of $

or borrow a vista microsoft dvd; not a HP, Acer recovery disk etc

Make sure that you borrow the correct 32-bit or 64-bit microsoft dvd to your computer

they contain all versions of vista

This is the product key that determines which version of vista is installed

  • Update caused Windows Blue Screen of Death. Suggested fix does not work.

    In February, my Sony Vaio laptop has been updated automatically by Microsoft and now it does not start.  I followed all the instructions in this thread


    but when I get to the point where I need to type some commands, uninstall, My Favorites keys displayed on the screen and I'm unable to type the codes or move forward.  As you can tell long time between when this problem occurred and that now, I gave up in frustration for a while but I simply could not live without my cell phone any longer and I'd rather not pay someone to fix this.  Any ideas or suggestions?

    Hello subvertdonthurt,

    All if suggestions published in the forum do not work for you, do a restore of the system from the Recovery Console.

    Here's how:

    Step i. access the recovery by using the OS CD console. As already suggested, you must have your OS CD to repair. (Or the image that you created the instructions above).

    To run the Recovery Console from the startup of Windows XP or the Windows XP CD-ROM diskettes, follow these steps:

    Insert the diskette of starting Windows XP in the floppy drive, or insert the Windows XP CD into the CD-ROM drive and restart the computer.
    Click to select all of the options required to start the computer from the CD-ROM drive if you are prompted to do so.
    When the "Welcome" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console and follow the process until you get to the recovery console command prompt.screen.

    STAGE II. At the Recovery Console prompt, type the following lines (in blue), and then press ENTER after.

    1 cd-(Note: between "cd" and "------" there should be an 'empty space' or still command does not work)
    2 cd system ~ 1\_resto ~ 1

    If it gives an error "Access denied" when accessing the folder, follow the method below

    CD windows\system32\config
    ren system system.bak

    Restart the computer, and then follow step I.

    3 dir

    When you hit it will list all records of points of restoration as rp1, rp2... we see the last restore point to copy the file from a recent backup. If the restore points have more than one page, then you keep pressing the key to display the last restore point folder. Use the other to the last restore point. (the last restore point is maybe damaged)

    4 cd rp {the next to the last restore point only.} (Note: example: cd rp9, if rp9 is the next to the last restore, point where the last restore point n = 9)

    5 cd snapshot

    Now, the command prompt will look like this c:\system~1\_resto~1\rp9\snapshot > ( Note: restore point 9A assumed for the clarity of the content, you must go to the next to the last restore point folder, as described in the previous lines) now according to the error message to copy the appropriate file in the restore point folder.

    6 copy _registry_machine_system c:\windows\system32\config\system
    7. Type Exit, and then press ENTER.

    I hope this helps.

  • Windows 7 Professional, DirectInput issues and software that does not work

    A little history: I have Vista Business installed and about 1 1/2 months, I've upgraded to Windows 7 Professional. I attend game and Sim classes that require me to use the Torque Game Builder, Torque Game Engine and Builder of couples of programming. I got Torque Game Builder and constructor not installed with Vista which game me no problem, I upgraded to Windows 7, installed torque game engine. First worked. Recently installed UnRealEd, 3DS max, Maya, Mudbox, MotionBuilder, all work ok. In 2 weeks, when I try to launch the products of couple, they do not work. They appear in the process, but they do not work, when I run in compatibility mode, disable visual themes and disable the composition of the bureau, run as admin, the screen flickers, past at the base, the program does not work. I've updated ALL my drivers from the manufacturer with the last site, I rolled back my drivers to the previous version, I performed a complete installation of Windows 7, tried using a virtual XP Mode machine and create a partition and have a dual boot with Vista business as well. All program worked in a first time in Windows Vista, but not 7. I could also access the program installed in Windows 7 drive and he would run as long as I was on Vista OS. I would then run DXDiag, when it runs, I get, 'DxDiag has detected that there may have been a DirectInput access problem last time that this program has been used. You want to bypass DirectInput this time? "I checked both BONES and found this to be the same issue. I don't remember when I ran the programs recently on Vista and I did a DXDiag, I had data entry.

    Now, I did too, the last Installation program installation of DirectX web and Auditor files system who finds no problem

    My system configuration is:

    Dual Boot: Windows 7 Professional, Windows Vista Business
    AMD 64 + 5000 double
    nVidia 8600 GT
    2 GB memory

    The only other program I can tell who has a problem is UnRealEd... all my work of Autodesk products.

  • ENVY 15 t-j000 quad edition cto: outputs audio switching does not work in windows 10 birthday when the headset is connected

    Hi guys.

    As you know in 10 anniversary update windows, you can switch between outputs sound when the headphone is plugged directly from the sound icon in the taskbar, but it does not work as it should. If the headset is unplugged then the sound comes from the speakers and they are plugged in when the noise is coming from the headset and I can't select speakers. It shows two devices, but when I select one of them the speakers are selected. Also I tried to playback devices, but still, I can't put the headset as default playback device. She is forced to be like the only communication device. I've updated the audio driver but nothing has not improved. My audio driver is codec IDT high-definition. In addition, I tried the generic driver from the sound of microsoft, which is called "codec high definition audio" and it shows a device like speaker and it doesn't detect any helmet or communication device. So, what's the problem? I am able to use this option of windows 10 birthday or not? If yes how? I need this option because I use a headset a lot and I don't want to plug them each time. Thank you for your attention. I can give additional information if it is needed and I'm hear to help.

    Hi David,

    If you remember, I had problem with the IDT driver after upgrade to windows 10 and other updates. I'll be back to tell you good news. Finally, I solved the problem partially and I'll explain what I did.

    Today, I found that there is some audio drivers in the microsoft catalog site, so I went out there and looked for a codec high definition audio. A list came and saw that there are three tempo IDT Audio driver that are compatible with windows 10. They are all IDT Audio driver version 6.10.6504.0 and they are made in 2015. I downloaded all the drivers of three and tested. The first two of them does not solve my problem but the last which is "Tempo driver update for codec IDT high-definition" made in 08/05/2015 with 13.1 MB did the job. I must mention that you need to install this driver on generic windows sound driver for good results. If you install hp IDT drivers probably do not get good results. After installing this driver now I am able to switch between outputs audio (headphones and loudspeakers). The driver can detect my headset exactly as what it is. He shows me an output until I plug in my headphones and it then adds another exit in the helmet. I put my headphones or internal speakers as default playback device which I couldn't do with other drivers. There are just two problems that does not matter much to me, and I can't ignore them. The first is the light of the button mute on the keyboard does not work with this driver which is not very important, and the second is that there is no Equalization of beats in this driver and instead there is an audio driver IDT, which is very similar to the equalizer, but it beats not affect only the internal speakers the headphones that is more important to me because the sound via the headphones is very clear and good. If there was some ablity to HP to change this driver and add audio beats and allow also the light on the button mute then it would be perfect. The link for this driver is here:

    Driver IDT tempo for windows 10 and put on subsequent day

    Just download the latest driver with 13.1 MB size and enjoy.

  • Bluetooth does not work since installing Vista SP2

    I have a HP Pavilion dv6 1128tx laptop.  It has bluetooth built-in and used to connect to my phone without problem.  I recently upgraded to Vista SP2, and since then, bluetooth does not work.  In the control panel when I click on bluetooth devices it does not connect, and when I click on bluetooth, nothing happens.  I downloaded the latest drivers from HP, I installed it is said in the end the process there is no bluetooth device installed and the only option is to cancel the installation.  I've been on microsoft site where I used the option "fix it for me", which has removed the option of Control Panel devices and I don't know how to fix this!  I followed the instructions from HP on this page, but I don't see anything on bluetooth technology on the Device Manager page.

    Any thoughts? !  Ta!

    HELO JosieC, welcome.

    In Device Manager, there are all the devices with a yellow mark ! next to them? Is there an 'unknown' devices listed?

    You could try the system restore to restore the computer prior to the installation of SP2.

    1. click on START
    2. Type "System Restore" (without the quotes) and press enter
    3 follow the prompts to restore your system to a date BEFORE the problem started

  • HP revolve 810 G1, Windows 8.1, screen auto-rotation of images does not work

    I'm sure I can't be alone in having improved my G1 810 turn Windows 8.1.  However it is therefore more useful tablet as the rotation of the screen does not work.  The auto spin button does nothing and after an HP engineer swapped botht huh card system and the button they said that the only option is to return to Windows 8 (original shipping OS).

    Really, this isn't a usable solution when you want the new features of Windows 8.1 update.

    My G1 of 900 ElitePad works well on Windows 8.1.

    Can it really be difficult to get the drivers right and tested?

    Someone at - it a Windows 8.1 working solution?


    decommissioning of the Bios to F.44 and auto-rotation should work again (for me it worked).

    I found this working solution myself, HP could not help me anyway.

    Be aware, that the Bios F.44 didn't put heat-settings update as F.47, so you'll have a noisy fan

    HP couldn't tell me when there will be updates of Bios or drivers updated.

    to ensure that automatic rotation is also running Windows 8.1.

    Hope this information helps you...

    Kind regards
