    Repair XP and restore files

    I have a question, I do not know if this is possible and I haven't really been able to find any results on the web to answer. I had a corrupted XP installation. Tried to repair disk, boot, recover registry, no go. (The pc would not boot at all.) Tried to repair existing installation, no go...

    Thank you for your help in any case. Just to resolve this thread, I ended up having to restore to an earlier time which did revert everything.

    Windows 7 driver issue

    Sigh, that's what I thought, but I appreciate your taking the time to confirm it. Win 7 is definitely a step in the right direction but still has its quirks. I am willing to live with it.

    Windows 7 driver issue

    Hi.

    Win 7 Tuneup

    Hi guys, I just have a question, don't know if it is possible or not. Is there a "tuneup" program available that actually does tune up your pc including reg, files, etc? I have seen too many scams in this area, but the fact is that after installing and reinstalling and using pgms and getting...

    Weird problem with pre-OS graphics

    Thanks guys and sorry it took so long to get back. I solved the problem - one of the memory slots was fried and with the memory plugged in on both slots, was causing (for some reason) the above problems. When I finally determined that it was the slot, I simply took out the chip from the bad...

    Weird problem with pre-OS graphics

    Ok, this one has got me stumped. Anyone can point me in the right direction, I'd appreciate it. My girl has a Dell Dimension 2400. Someone replaced all the RAM (RAM type and size is correct for mobo, etc and I doublechecked to make sure seated, cleaned, etc) and right after that the graphics...

    add XP MCE to XP Pro SP3

    OK, thought I would venture on this one and see if anyone has any info on this. I originally had a Vista Premium pc, I dual booted to XP Pro. I find I use the XP more than the Vista as I am always doing alot of photos, digital editing, blu-ray, etc. and have had more success with less problems...
