Preferred Solution: Windows Vista Recovery disk doesn't work..

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

is there any way i can recover my original windows?

i tried pressing 0 when starting up but no use.

thanks a lot

A:Toshiba Recovery - 2nd disk doesn't work

Hi

This is very bad situation now. All you can do is to try again. Make second DVD clean and try it again.
I really hope this will work somehow. If not, you have a big problem.

Before recovery image installation starts whole HDD will be formatted so there is no chance to start HDD recovery installation from the HDD (using 0 at start-up).

Hi,

Hope everyone had a happy Thanksgiving and managed to get some good deals on black Friday.

I'm having problems with my Gateway P-7811FX. I was playing a game and the computer completely froze. After powering down and trying to reboot, I get the Gateway load screen, Microsoft loading bar, then black screen with _ in the upper left. This always happens when I try restarting normally. On some occasions I get the white cursor afterwards, but thats it.

Sometimes I will get the boot unsuccessful screen and the option for Windows repair or Windows normally. Neither works and results are the same. On one attempt I received the following message

STOP: c0000218 {Registry File Failure}
The registry cannot load the hive (file):
\SystemRoot\System32\Config\COMPONENTS
or its log or alternate. It is corrupt, absent, or not writable

On a second attempt I received this message

STOP: c000021a {Fatal System Error}
The verification of a knownDLL failed. system process terminated unexpectedly with a status of 0xc0000221
(0x0068cba0 0x00000000).

I have tried booting into safe mode or last known good configuration, I end up with the black screen and _ or white cursor

I tried using the recovery cd and after hitting a button to boot from cd, I get the windows installation bar, then again it gets to the black screen with white cursor.

Also, when I navigate the bios menu, it's sluggish and sometimes takes a couple of seconds to register keystrokes.

I just paid $40.00 for a restore USB drive for my wife's HP Pavilion dv6-6108us. Her HDD failed, and I replaced it, but couldn't find her original disks. As soon as the USB drive arrived last week, I inserted it, and booted from it, choosing the restore option.  I received an error message saying "Windows cannot find 'E:\System.sav\Util\RStone.exe'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again. So, I click "OK" and I'm then told Restoration is finished. Restart. So, I remove the USB restore drive, and restart. But, after the restart, I receive the error message "BOOTMGR image is missing Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart."

Hello everyone! Thanks for taking the time to read this post!
I have an Acer Predator G3100
Computer Specs:1 TB hard drive
8 GB DDR3 memory
AMD Phenom X4 850 quad-core processor
DVD-Super Multi drive
NVIDIA Geforce GTX 550ti (Recently replaced with an ASUS GTX 660 ti)
Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
LITEON PS-6451-5 450(?) Watt Power supply
ADATA XPG SX900 128GB SSD (Added by myself)
Now, I also have a picture of the motherboard. I'm not sure of the brand.

(The SSD was only not secured because of testing reasons when trying to figure out the problem)

So my problem began with me going away from home and putting the computer on restart before I left (I use splashtop to access my computer when I'm not home). During the following evening and night there was a lightning storm in town. I got home the next day with the computer being off. I tried to turn it on by pressing the power button and there was no reaction, I checked the power and unplugged the computer and plugged it back in again. I tried again and It powered up. Everything was loading fine until it started to load the OS (Windows 7 Home Premium) at that point the screen froze and the longer I waited the faster the CPU and Case Fan ran until it was what I assume at 100%. I turned the computer off, and restarted it into BIOS. CPU was stable at just about 50 Degrees Celsius. I left it to cool off for a bit and restarted it.

It froze again when loading Windows. I made a Windows recovery disc from my Laptop (Windows ... Read more

A:Windows won't start, recovery disc doesn't work...

I've seen this happen a few times with jumps in current (which may have came from your lightning storm). It's not the SSD/HDD, and in my case, it was the southbridge controller failed, which houses the SATA ports. Specifically, voltage regulators were overheating, and after 15-30 seconds of attempted use on the SATA ports, it would halt it's process.

Possibly the most irritating part of the whole thing was that I could idle a system or RAM process (BIOS/memtest/etc...) with no problem. It was once I tried to use any mass storage controller that I had no luck.

I've heard of ways around this, like rigging a case fan to hang perfectly over the regulators and run at full speed to keep them cooled, but that was ridiculous for me, I just replaced the board.

For fun, have you tried swapping your SSD with a spare drive (if you have one) and loading a clean install of Windows to rule out what I'm referring to? If you can get up and running with a test installation, it will help determine where the issue lies.

Last night, I decided to update my Windows since it was highly recommended by Windows. After about 60 updates (mostly security updates) I turned off my computer.This morning, my computer could not start up. it would go into a loop where it shows a black screen apologizing and saying that Windows was unable to start up successfully. I am given boot options. It looks like this:We apologize for the inconveneince. Windows did not start successfully etc....Safe ModeSafe Mode with NetworkingSafe Mode with command promptLast known configurationStart Windows normallyI tried all options, and none worked. The reboot loop went on and on.I tried to install a Recovery Console using my CD and followed the instructions here: http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=307545(note: while typing in the commands, there were captions that said "Windows was unable to recognize the command..." whenever i typed in commands such as "c:\windows\etcetcetc" but never for "copy c:\etc" or "delete c:\etc"When it went to the procedure involving going into Safe Mode, I was unable to.

Try changing the boot order of your bios setting and boot from CD to do a repair see if that works !

* Many computers out there are not configured to boot from the CDROM. If you cannot boot from the CDROM, this is probably due to the boot order of your computer being incorrect for CDROM booting.

You have two options:

1.) You can change this in the BIOS during POST, which is usually the very first screen displayed by your computer when you turn it on.

2.) Many newer computers have a selectable boot menu by tapping F8, F10 OR F12 right during/after the first POST screen. This will allow you to temporarily boot from a CDROM.
To enter your BIOS, most users here will press the DEL key.

Most users with Dell, Gateway, Sony & HP systems will press F2.

Many Toshiba laptops are F2 or require you hold the ESC key when you turn the system on. Your notebook will report an error and prompt to press F1 to enter setup. Do exactly that.

Compaq users will usually have to press F10.

IBM typically uses F1 or F2.

Other brands may have different keys to press to enter setup, but F1, F2, Del, Tab and CTRL+S or CTRL + ALT + S are the most common ones I'm familiar with. Often, the BIOS will display what button to press to "enter setup" during POST.
When you enter the BIOS setup, you need to change the boot order. The CDROM should be setup before the Hard Drive. Each BIOS is different !

Once changed then... Read more

So there I am sitting on my computer typing up an English assignment with AVG running a test on my computer, there was a Trojan in the list but I wanted to wait until it finished scanning everything. So suddenly the computer freezes, I try restarting but it goes to a black screen with my mouse visible and then gets stuck at the "welcome" windows screen. I immediately got on my laptop and started searching for possible solutions, so I came upon the Windows XP Recovery Console. I put in my xp cd, got recovery running, access my drive and started the recovery process. It got stuck at 54% and now I honestly don't know what options I have left without having to format everything and lose a ****ton if important Word Files. My comp OS is Windows XP if that's any help. Thank you for reading my post and I'm looking forward to a response.

I have an Inspiron 7520 and uninstalled and reinstalled the new version of Dell Backup and Recovery Manager -- upgraded to premium to make sure that I would have full ability to use the program. Note: the old version didn't work at all -- hung up on backup, etc.
I have rebooted.
When I try and open the Manager interface, I can't. All I get is the clock logo with the hand spinning. I cannot set the destination. I cannot select what I want to back up. I've tried this several times and just get the spinning clock which I end up ending through Task Manager. 
I have tried opening the Manager from the installed link on desktop, from my list of programs, from the Start menu, and from the tray icon. Nothing works.
Any suggestions?

A:Windows 8 Dell Backup and Recovery Manager doesn't work

I have the same issue with the non premium version, I made the mistake of upgrading to v1.0.0.4 that is available for download and now have the same spinning clock, the program never loads so can't do anything with it. I have tried twice now to uninstall and then reinstall but still the same issue with spinning clock.
This is on a brand new XPS 8500 running windows 8. The reason I tried upgrading is that the version I had would not create recovery disk on usb key (would take forever to see the usb key and then would fail with pretty much useless error message before writing anything to the usb key, all it would do is format it to something that could no longer be read by windows.

Hi, this isn't an urgent problem, in fact it has been a problem since I installed Windows 7 over a year ago, but I have recently decided that it is extremely naďve of me to ignore the problem, because no matter how lucky I am I will need to access safe mode eventually, and that's not possible right now. Basically my computer works 100% fine (barring speed issues or any other minor complaint), including my keyboard, except when I have to hard boot my computer/power shuts off/whatever causes the computer to boot up into the "windows error recovery" screen. When I get to that screen I get four options: boot windows 7 normally (highlighted); boot windows 7 in safe mode; boot windows 7 in safe mode with networking; and one other one I believe. There's a countdown from 30 seconds and at the end of the countdown the highlighted option will be selected if I don't choose one myself with the arrow keys and enter/return. Problem is, I can't select a different option from the highlighted one. the arrow keys and enter key (or any other key) are all functionless. The keyboard is plugged in and the computer knows that because its media lights (the mute/play-pause/stop/&c. keys) are all lit up. In the past I have had to use Safe Mode for many old computers, as I'm sure most people have, and currently I don't have that option. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you in advance.

It appears I can't run my disk defragmenter anymore. Every time when I'm trying to analyze the disk, it shows 0% although it's been about 3 months since I last time defragmented it, so it must have some kind of fragmentation. Also, when I highlight for example "system" and click defragment nothing happens. Before when I highlighted system and clicked degragment, the % number would show up and start going from 1 to 2, etc........ Now it just acts like it is turned off. It doesn't work on any of the 4 category choices (OS, Recovery, system, and my external hard drive).
 

A:Solved: Windows 7 - disk defragmenter doesn't work

Unless you've changed it, Windows 7 will automatically defragment itself every so often (I think the default is Wednesday nights). It's therefore entirely possible that there's no problem after all.

If that doesn't seem likely, I suggest you pick up another defrag tool (such as Piriform's defraggler) and see what it makes of your drive. Bear in mind that it over-reports some things, such as including the page file in the analysis even though it can't do anything to it.

Hello! All of a sudden my pc wouldn't get past the Starting windows screen, I rebooted and got an error screen telling me a recent software or hardware change might have caused the failure (I haven't changed a thing as of recently). That screen gave me the option to start in safe mode (didn't work, it would load a number of drivers and then just sit there indefinitely trying to load the next driver, but not being able to do so) Rebooted, tried the other option the screen gave me, which was using the last known valid configuration, but it wouldn't work either, again it would not get past the Starting windows screen.
So I booted from a recovery cd, it shows "Loading files" and then just sits there with the green loading bar running forever. I tried this with two different disks, and let them load for hours, it would never get past that screen.
I then tried booting from a USB, this time not just the recovery options but with a full windows installation iso on it. Same result, won't get past the green loading bar despite letting it load for hours.
I have saved my files to an external drive, by using Ubuntu live. But I have no idea how to proceed to repair windows, I have used my recovery disks successfully in the past, but now nothing works.
I have also run a full scan with Kaspersky rescue disk 10,it found nothing, zero threats.
I appreciate any help you can give me. Thanks.

Well...you are assuming that Windows is the problem...and that it can be repaired.  Since you cannot even get into Windows, I would not assume that it's the problem.

My laptop is a Medion Erazer x6816, it has worked great for two years, and then today it decided not to boot. I did not install anything or changed anything yesterday, just used my computer as usual. I just put it on hibernation mode before going to bed, and this morning it wouldn't start, so I turned it off pressing the "on" button... and since then it has not worked.
When I start the laptop, it will tell me to choose between repair mode, or start windows normally. No matter what I choose, the same happens: A message and a white loading bar appears indicating that "windows is loading files" (Which usually does not appear when booting it) and then the usual green loading windows bar and the words "microsoft corporation" appear on screen, but just for a second as it suddenly becomes a completely black screen and does nothing else.
I have waited on this black screen for about 4 hours and it did not change. Nevertheless, about 2 or 3 times (I have tried booting it all over again about 30 times) I have got a black screen with a white computer mouse I can move around, but do nothing else.
If I boot from the recovery disk, or windows 7 disk, I get the same result. Windows is loading files, green bar for a sec, black screen and nothing else.

Hi guys. My CD/DVD drives don't work on Windows Vista, and it's been about 6 months now. I was hoping that the problem would go away with time or that I'd eventually stumble upon the solution. I have tried several things, including formatting and reinstalling Windows Vista, but the drives still don't work.

Symptoms:
I realized the problem when I tried to rip a couple of CD's I bought off Amazon. Whenever I insert an audio CD, the computer just sits there waiting. When I open My Computer, the green bar is filling in very slowly, and when it reaches the end, nothing happens. If I try to right-click on the device properties, the computer locks up... until I press the eject button on the drive in question.
Same thing happens with DVDs. And Data CDs.

Both drives work perfectly well on Windows XP and on Xubuntu.

What I've tried:

1) I'm acquainted with the registry deletion of the UpperFilters and LowerFilters keys, but that just hasn't worked for me. I've tried it several times.

2) I've formatted and reinstalled Windows Vista. The drives still don't work, even though tested the drives as soon as Vista finished installing.

3) I've cut off the power supply to each of my drives (by disconnecting the cable) and booted with a single drive. Still didn't work.

4) I've waited 6 months for the problem to go away... it didn't.

5) Vista Updates didn't resolve the issue before formatting my Vista partition.... Read more

On Windows Vista SP2 32 bit Russian, Internet Explorer 9.0.8112.16421 (updates 9.0.56) I can confirm the issue mentioned here:

In short, the start of the Windows compatibility wizard (rus:

%systemroot%\system32\mshta.exe res://acprgwiz.dll/compatmode.hta
will make Internet Explorer show those error about accelCmd, and some subsequent errors.
A lot of interface elements in the Wizard arn't drawn properly, doesn't work as expected or at all, so it's impossible to start an app using the Wizard.

Vista and its IE9 are not supported anymore so there won't be a fix from Microsoft but I wonder what is a reason of the errors. And maybe it's possible to fix this by changing some setting(s) in Internet Explorer or Registry?

And then appear:"A runtime has occurred. Do you wish to debug?" In checked box: "Use the built-in script debugger in Internet Explorer. Yes - No". I chose "Yes". Then appear a "developer tools" page accompanied by a box with this legend: "JScript Debugger. Breaking on JScript runtime error - Object expected. OK". I click "ok".
When I try to close the page, it ask me "Do you want to stop debugging?" I chose to click "yes".

I think the solution of the problem is to keep it in debugging. What do you recommend me?

I do not think you can do that, your Recovery Disk's use an OEM key number A retail version will not accecpt an OEM Key, or at least this it what I understand. If this is not correct please correct me.

I need a way to clear space in my recovery disk because it is starting to make my desktop shut down, i have a lot of VCL media player files on it and I'd like to convince my aunt that I know what I'm doing when I tell her all I have to do is save them to a flash drive and she wont lose them. They take up a lot of space and if I were to delete them, it would probably save the poor computer's life. Thanks :) -Amberhi

A:Windows Vista, Recovery disk (D:) is full.

Hello amberhi & welcome to TSF

I don't think less free space in the Recovery drive could lead to shut downs. What makes you think so? Can you please describe exactly when the shut down happens?

Yes, it's completely safe to move the data to a pendrive, but I suggest you get a larger hard drive because over time (a few years), flash drives tend to fail.

You can check out the link Is Your PC Running Slow...? in my signature and follow the suggestions there.

Please post back.

Hi, I have the original vista recovery installation disks that were created when you purchase the computer. They always worked fine. Windows 7 was installed on it and worked fine. I had to replace the motherboard in this and the wireless doesn't work on the replaced board. I do recall previously to installing windows 7 that when I installed xp I had to install a utility to get the wireless to work. When I installed vista again I had to do the same thing. After installing the motherboard and trying everything possible out there to work the wireless still doesn't work and the utilities that are available don't work with windows 7, I tried to put it the recovery disks to just start the computer all over again from vista, because the utility for the wireless is in that installation, however now when I put the recovery disks in it's telling me that they aren't for this computer. Is there something I have to do in windows 7 to get it to install these disks? Thanks

Hello Fred,

It depends on your OEM brand, but most of them will allow you to create a set of Vista Recovery Installation DVDs from the recovery partition. Post back your OEM brand to see we can find a link at their website with instructions on how to, and post it back for you.

A:windows live messenger application sharing doesn't work in Vista

Hello Blizzard49

Welcome to TSF

Now with this issue you are using remote desktop (Accessing a Vista based computer via another XP based system)
unfortunatley you are not able to use any apllications without allowing access to your drives within remote desktop.
You need to use the Group Policy Editor in order for drives to become available through remote desktop connection



Try this:

In Group Policy Editor
1. go to Computer Configuration
2. Administrative
3. Templates
4. System
5. Remote Storage Access
6. All Removable Storage:
Allow direct access in remote sessions... set this to ENABLED.

Or alternatively use a program like UltraVNC. UltraVNC is a powerful, easy to use and free software that can display the screen of another computer (via internet or network) on your own screen. The program allows you to use your mouse and keyboard to control the other PC remotely.

I have a 4y old Sony VAIO (VGN-NS11J) that stopped working today morning after making a whirring noise

Repeated attempts to restart failed and after many attempts, I managed to get to the Startup Repair mode - after a long time, startup repair says it failed to automatically repair the problem

I managed to run system restore but after a while I got the following message: "System restore failed due to an unspecified error. The disk strucgture is corrupted and unreadable (0X80070571)

My laptop did not come with a Windows Vista CD/Recovery disk

My first priority is to recover a few files in the laptop - if I am able to do this, then I dont mind junking the laptop

Since this is an old laptop, I would prefer not to use an expensive professional to recover the data

Any help/suggestions would be much appreciated!

Hi guys,

as my nick states i am absolutely clueless how to get my Wacom Bamboo working again...

I had to repair my Office 2007 Installation because Word and Excel crashed instantly after starting. This began when i installed two official Microsoft Addins.

After repairing Office it worked again but by now i am unable to write anything on my tablet. It only works for navigation (mouse-like) and Windows-Journal can't get startet anymore by now because the "inking component" can't be started. ('Windows Journal cannot start. There was an error initializing inking components. IF this problem persists after restarting, contact your system administrator.')

Things i've tried so far that didn't work:

- Reinstalling the optional TabletPC components from Vista
- Tried to start Windows Journal in Repair mode ("journal.exe /repairnotewriter") -> Windows Journal still refused to start
- Reinstalling WACOM Bamboo Drivers (different versions)
- Repairing Office (+ OneNote)
- Googled for hours what the problem might be... there is no knowledgebase article from microsoft that helps with this problem.

The Bamboo works fine in Photoshop ...

I wasn't able to use a windows restore point since the feature was disabled for some odd reason.

Has anyone the slightest idea how i could make it work again (except reinstalling -> I had to reinstall 1 week ago and it took me 2 whole days to get the system updated and every software installed)?

I just bought a recovery USB, I want to reset my computer to factory settings and reinstall the operating system. I started up the process and got into the Recovery Manager. It let me start the process for the recovery preparation. It looks like that portion is about to finish, then gives the error "Windows cannot find 'D:\System.sav\Util\Rstone.exe'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again." If I click OK to get past the error, it tells me "Recovery preparation is complete" and prompts me to reboot, then sends me through a loop, ending in that error. The packet that came with the USB only says to Contact HP Support at www.hp.com/support in the event of errors...but when I try to contact support it tells me that my laptop is out of warranty. Which I'm sure is true, but I JUST paid over $50 for a USB recovery drive that doesn't seem to work, and I never even got any sort of email confirmation on the purchase. HP has provided no way for me to reach out beyond these forums. Can anyone help? Either with the OS installation or with how to get a refund on a recovery USB that seems to be missing a file?

My computer had a few freezes last week and I had to simply turn it off, which may have scrambled its brains.  It only boots into System Recovery, which doesn't work.
I've tried all the various options, including changing drive letter designations from the command prompt, but nothing helps.
There were two Recovery volumes, one on C:.  I deleted that volume thru DiskPart, and then the oS moved to D:
I can boot from the Windows setup disk, but it only offers a reinstall - not a repair.  I don't really want to do a reinstall because the computer is now 5 years old.
I just ordered a new one, but would like to be able to use this one until the other arrives.
I've backed up my data (before the problem developed).
How can I change the OS drive back to C:?  OR How can I boot to what is now the OS drive, which oddly is D:?
Thank you.

A:OS is now on E: instead of C:; Recovery doesn't work

Do you get the Advanced Boot Options when you tap F8 at boot? If you do then you should be able to select Repair Computer from the options and then do a Startup Repair.

It's hard to explain, but here's what happened. I thought I was having audio problems, so I did a system recovery (on a Samsung R480 only a month old). Since I did the system recovery, everything is messed up. I will open Yahoo Messenger and I have pictures but no words. I cannot log into my gmail because I have boxes but now words. If I try to open a Microsoft Word document the computer does a dump and restarts. It's just totally messed up now. For some reasons I have no restore points at all, and I thought restore was automatically on. The Samsung guy said I could still make a backup and use it. I wasn't sure how that was going to work, because I'd be backing up the crap system, not the good system, but he's the 'expert' so I did what he said. And sure enough, all I did was make a backup of the bad system. Is there anything I can do to restore my computer to factory condition since I have no restore points and System Recovery 4 is what put it in this funky state in the first place....and obviously I have no operating disks like everyone used to get with all computers. Thank you in advance for your help.

Run Startup Repair 3 times, rebooting between each try.

What did you try with the recovery DVD? Did you start to reinstall Windows? If so, you may have deleted the data that was on the computer.

I suggest starting all troubleshooting with the following diagnostic tests. They'll save you a lot of time and heartache if there is a hardware failure, and you'll have the disks on hand in case you need them in the future:

I called the HP support and they have advised that I need to order a media recovery USB. So I paid my 120$ and 10 days later I got it.Once I plug the media USB into my laptop, I get an error message that says that the media key does not support my laptop. I called HP support and they are telling me that in order for them to help me with media key, I need to pay them another 60$, how lovely !Before I spend more money, would someone know how I could fix my problem?!

I have a HP Pavillion dv2910us, and I need to perform a system recovery on my laptop. I?ve tried to press F11 when the computer boots up, and nothing happens except it makes a loud beep sound and continues on its way starting up. So when that didn?t work, I came to the HP site to look up another way to possibly perform a system recovery that I didn?t know. I found that I can open the Recovery Manager from my start menu and perform the operation from there. I tried about 15 times, following the exact steps that were given to me, and even another way I found in the forum. All that happens is my computer restarts and I log in to my account and it?s the same as it was before. I really need to perform this system recovery. I?ve already moved the files I need to save to an external hard drive, and I just really need to fix this problem. What am I doing wrong, or how can I restore my laptop to factory settings in another way? Additional info: My product number is FE989UA#ABA and serial is 2CE8200Y5Q.Message Edited by racket on 07-24-2009 10:36 PM

A:System Recovery doesn't work?

sha3ko wrote: I have the same problem, and from what I know, if you have upgraded or downgraded your computer (that is, if you have reinstalled the operating system to something other than the original) it will cause corruptions to the recovery partition in your D drive. I tried to find the way to recover the recovery partition, but it seems there's no way unless you're a computer genius. My final solution will be just ordering a set of recovery disks from hp, but I'll try other way out before I pay for it. Good luck with yours. Try this>>1.Right-click on "Computer" icon and select manage. 2.This will launch the Microsoft Management Console. 3.On the left side of the MMC, click on "Disk Management" and it will show you all of the partitions. 4.Right-click on the "HP Recovery" partition and select "Mark as Active Partition." 5.When the warning prompt appears, select "Yes" - Reboot the notebook and it will automatically boot into the Recovery Manager without having to press F11.
