I just built me a new rigg and im having problems installing Vista Ultimate 64-bit.After i do a fresh install and update all the drivers it'll work for a few hours and all of a sudden my desktop dissapears and all my problems are gone, i then try to restart it and first thing that pops up is volume panel missing with a yellow exclaimation mark, my wallpaper has dissapeared i try to open any file/game that i install manually by going into the folder it say this program has been move or no longer on this hdd.Im only using one hdd.This is my 4th time installing vista 64 ult it happens everytime, and my vista has not last two full days of use and it runs into the same problem.I thought it may have been my hardware but i have checked them all out ran memtest rams are good tested psu.Only thing i can come up with is that its either my motherboard or it can be vista.I have until about the 17th of this month to fix this problem if not i guess i would be returning board and cpu and just return to windows pro.
My desktop crashed on me when i was reformatting it, after countless tries and couple versions of Linux, I found my old vista CD and decided to throw that on there because its the only system that i am fairly familiar with and that doesnt need codes to run stuff :P. Anyways after I put vista on it, my PC's USB ports that used to work fine have been acting weird, I tried to plug my wireless usb adapter which works on my laptop running win7 and my other desktop running win vista home basic, but with this pc it keeps saying that the device has malfunctioned. After i plug the device in it, it downloads the drivers for it but then says that it has malfunctioned. Oh and also i cant even put a usb stick on.
The funny thing is Device Manager says they are all ok and working fine. ALL 6 OF THEM ARE MALFUNCTIONING lol. (2 FRONT 4 BACK) so i was wondering if you guys could lend me helping hand and tell me what my problem is and how i can fix it. Oh here is a funny thing, with linux, my usb device used to work for it for like 30 mins and then it would cut out. Propably should mention that the device is a Zioncom WL0123 Wireless USB adapter that is supposably VISTA READY. I have done alot of research but have gotten nowhere, and i have done the whole unistall usb's and everything.
Was installing service pack 2 and system crashed now can not even get back to my old vista. Seems to be loading and then I get: !!oxc 0190005!! 9293/45274 (registrymachineschemawcm.//microsoft-...) Then it freezes. I let it stay here for 18 hours and nothing. Tried to boot with my old vista windows disk and can not get a fix or get back to loading anything. Latest error said windows can not fix problem. Frequant black screen of death after bios or it goes to above point and stops.
I have a Sony laptop with Windows Vista as operating system. The system crashed. So I initialised a new start via CTRL, ALT and DEL. Unfortunately, the shut down process got stuck and the screen just displays "shut down" without doing anything. It remained like this for a couple of minutes when I hold the turn-on/off button pressed. I was expecting to force my laptop to restart again (which is the usual case on a Windows XP machine). However, my laptop just went to the stand-by modus. Pressing the turn-on/off gave back the frozen display of "shut down".
my system is crashed when i start it dosent load a blue screen appears and nothing happens it jsut restarts so plzz hlp me tell me wat i should doand 1 more thing it dosent open safe mode alsobut i hab backed up my system in other local disk tell me how to boot it
Last night I loaded software for my new digitol camera, and after installation, I chose to reboot so new drivers would take effect. System crashed, Did not see fine print on CD that said it did not work with Vista 64 until after the fact. I was asked on screen to put in Vista 64 disk and try to repair, no luck. Only option available was to restore, the problem here was a newly built computer within the last two months and I failed to backup drives, this won't happen again. Delema was losing over half of the cd's that I loaded from a total of 2437. I had my music on a separate terabyte drive from the operating system. When you look at the music folder on the drive, albums were missing, but total gigabyte of folder had not changed, it was still a total of 277 GB. In the media player, I had checked the block to add recently deleted files and this brought back all 2437 albums in media player only, but if I look in music folder on drive under specific artist that had let say 11 albums, it only shows two in the folder. Now can someone tell me where in the heck did these go.
I did delete some older music files prior to rebuting computer, because I had replaced the 128KBPS files with 320 KBPS files, but always check to make sure number of albums in music folder matched what was in media folder, and they did match before rebooting. Is it possible to recover something after you emptied the recycle bin? Media player shows 2437 albums, music folder over half files are gone. I could probably sinc them album by album to a usb drive, or un-box my complete cd collection and load each one in again, but that would take forever, I know someone with insight can offer a better solution. I'm Desperate, and flipping out over this.
I recently re-installed vista home premium back on my vaio vgn-fz17g laptop after the system crashed and i noticed a few problems. 1. the computer wont read an sd card. 2. the computer does not recognise my graphics card. 3.i have an unknown device on my device manager. 4. my "UGX"? has no drivers (and none can be found) 4. my base score used to be 4.0 today i installed another gb of ram and i checked my base score and instead of going up it went down to 1.0 i cant even use aero anymore. the base score is where i realised my graphics card disappeared all that shows up in device manager is standard vga graphics adapter when i have a 512mb graphics card somewhere inside.
I blew out the keyboard, (thought something might have gotten down there and was the cause of this) but still no change. I tried to restart my Vista Ultimate x64, but because it was keying that letter it just kept trying to search. So I had to hit the power button. This is where it gets weird. Upon restart, it goes to some sort of recovery wizard. No log-in screen, just this wizard. If I cancelled it, my system would reboot. So, after 6 different cancels / restarts, I tried it. It did a recovery that set up two partitions on my HD, but ERASED EVERYTHING. Anything that was not installed originally on the computer was erased. There are no system restore points (Deleted as well) Don't worry, I back-up fairly often. But I'd like to know what the hell happen.
my stepdaughter's laptop's hd crashed (unusable), she of course lost the system disc. I have my laptop and system disc, both laptops are gateway but different models 6752 and 6836. I have a new hd on order, and I will install vista with my disc and her windows product key (her laptop) I shouldn't have any problem with that right?
I have an HP dv9208nr laptop which has worked perfectly for me until recently. A few days ago after closing the computer and opening it back up i noticed that the wireless wasn't working. Obviously i checked the switch and the switch was on but the LED was orange indicating that wireless connectivity was turned off. I tried restarting and no luck; after a few other simple fixes didn't work; i went to the device manager and noticed that the wireless card wasn't in the list as it should have been. I tried updating the drivers; nothing. HP techs sent me a link to a service manual and instructed me to reseat the card manually, reset the BIOS, and reinstall the drivers. It didn't work. the next day the computer had found the card as new hardware and installed it. it worked fine for a day; then the same thing happened again.
i did was reboot my pc(vista ultimate 32bit) and my desktop icons looked like this.(see image). I posted this problem on 2 other forums and no luck yet. System restore don't work. afe mode don't work. Rebuilding icon cache don't work.
First is there a group for win 7? And second I was checking things out and found out this on the desktopn gadgets, when I click on it inthe control manager it says this Desktop Gadgets are managed by your system administer. Why can't I access it?
Hello, my son's pc crashed and will only boot to the black screen with green loading bar, then quits. Monitor keeps going to sleep.
I tried everything: system repair (which says it can't do - corrupt registry). Restore (can't - no restore point was set.) Go back to last known good config - won't work it crashes.
I ran a memory test and all was good.
So, I saw on this site where it was advised to do an upgrade/repair, but I can't because the option is grayed out and disabled. I tried starting with the disc in, and also by starting and then putting the disk in. If I wait until the machine starts and put the disk in, it will not work. It crashes. If I put the disk in and then start the machine is when I get to the install screen and eventually the 'update is disabled' screen.
I'm really trying to avoid a new install. I wonder if there is a way to get around the disabled thing in my case?

I find every morning Outlook crashed. Computer is continuously busy (25% of CPU)Rebooting solves the problem, but next morning again crash. Only program running during the night (as far as I can see) is Windows Defender.
my PC crashed and will not boot, the NTOSKRNL.EXE is missing or corrupt, repair from the DVD does nor fix the problem. I need to reinstall but the only option I get when bootin from the DVD is to "Install from Windows" but Windows will not boot up.What can I do?
I'm a Vista and IE user, not a Developer. Sequence of events:
last week... downloaded Vista Service Pack 1 this week... IE8 has stopped working... screen goes white... DEP problem (blocks code execution) or DEP/NX No-Execute Memory Protection.....................
I installed vista sp2 yesterday and now my laptop won't start. it offers two options, start in repair mode or start normally. I have an 18 month old Toshiba Equiium running vista home P 32 bit. If I start normally, the microsoft logo comes up and then the screen blips blue momentarily then it goes off. If I run the repair, it scans for faults, then prompts to run a system restore. I take this option and then it takes many minutes to attempt repairs - ultimately ending with 'windows cannot repair..."
there is a log with lots of 0x0 type errors notices (which are meaningles to me) I can't even get to the point where I could elect to restore to last best save or whatever. I have all my docs backed up on a portable HD but I cannot get past this failed repair message.
Recently, my Vista x32 crashed. I deleted it and put on Windows XP. (This was three days ago) I now wish to go back to Vista, as I didn't expect this and never planned to turn to XP. A vista CD did not come with my laptop, but I have a serial. My friend had Vista and when he installed it, it would only be compliant with the serial number it came with. Is there any way to recover my Vista?
Yesterday I was playing a game, and it just pixelated my screen and crashed. I restarted my Vista system, and it couldn't reboot. I reinstalled a fresh version of Windows 7 thinking it might help out. Everything is okay, I run 1280x800 without the drivers for the video but once I install NVIDIA Drivers, it crashes. I can't play any games this way.
My Laptop was taking about 8-9 mins on average to boot. But Runs Great once running. also shut down was 4-5 mins. I tried Defrag, CCleaner Defrag Registry, Registry Cleanup,enable both cpu's at start up,ran Avanquest's System Suite Utilities, Chkdsk/f /r,also sfc /scannow.so reading on some forums, a lot of advice was to update all drivers. So I got Driver Genius Pro 9 by avanquest (Driversoft company when installed)this program found 22 drivers out of date. so I created a restore Point and did a full registry export(backup).next, I let all the drivers completely download, then First, I installed Intel turbo memory drivers,everything was functioning well, so I proceeded to install Intel chipset device software.
3rd was the Nvidia Display Drivers so I made a second Restore point (I had issues in the past with display drivers) So I installed the Nvidia drivers and on reboot I input my password and it says The User Profile Service service failed the logon. User Profile cannot be loaded. I tried to run Restore but it says Disk OS(C) has errors(Windows detected file system corruption on OS(C). you must check the disk for errors before it can be restored. checking disk OS (C) - Some Problems were found and fixed. But at reboot - same issue. so I went to vista forums."Brink" had some great advice I used that I found in a thread, to turn on the "Real" administrator account in safe mode to gain access and I uninstalled the Nvidia drivers under the admin acct. at reboot states corrupt system files (CheckDisk) But when I tried to run driver Genius in admin again to reverse the intel drivers (this shows up as Intel Matrix Storage Manager in Start>Programs) the PC crashed.
I ran CHKDSK /f .NOW I can boot into my acct. but there is NO sound device found, sidebar gadget shows no battery,or battery activity.Also bluetooth Hardware not functioning. The Drivers for bluetooth and sound show "Functioning" in device manager. Someone HELP Please as I spent many many months customizing and lots of money on software that will be lost. It seems to be fixable but HOW?
I have a gateway MT3422 that I have had for 2 years and it came with vista. I have had to restore my computer once since I have had it and never had any serious problems with it. 3 months ago, my computer was trying to install SP1 and when the computer restarts, it goes to a blue screen, then into a black screen and it says "error, calling phyllat. can not find operating system" and it locks up. I push ALT+CTRL+DEL to reset it and it reboots and says the upgrade did not install and gives me the option to reinstall it. After 3 months of trying, I gave up and ignored my computer to download and install the service pack.
Then one day, it actually installed SP1 and when it restarted, it said "error, do you wish to launch system restore (recommended)" I did and it went to a black screen for 4 hours - no cpu or aything running or eve the blue cpu light to show its running. No fan on, no noise from the processor. I shut my computer off and it doesnt ever go to the windows vista loading screen.
Ive tried to boot in safe mode and it gets hung up on system/windows32.....drv and never goes any further and gets caught in a loop. I pushed f8 to launch the repair mode, and it gets caught in a loop. I put i my restore disc that came with my laptop and when I ask it to install windows vista, it gets caught in a loop. tried to do a system restore and it cant because my C drive is corrupted.
I have 3 VB machines running IE8. All worked fine until today, where nobody can open the IE8 app. The one XP machine in the office is working fine on IE8, and the Windows SBS 2008 machine we have is running fine on IE7. We did emergency Firefox installs, and this is what we are using now to do browsing. It looks like the program is trying to open, but just doesn't. The only update installed yesterday was a definition update for Windows defender, although since then I have installed SP2 on my machine to see if it cures.
My hard drive crashed, so i bought a new one but when i try to run the recovery dvd disc, as soon as i click start it says Error 100a if problem persists contact hp. i called them and they're telling me i now need to get a new recovery disc, but i dont think they know what they're talking about and im sure they will just tell me i need to buy something else when that doesnt work
I've had windows vista on my laptop for over a year (it came with it) and it's pretty slick and clean looking but why isn't it compatible with a lot of software! like for instance, the window's chess game...worked twice then never worked again...always gives the "executable for chess game has stopped working". I gave up on that. another one, iTunes...has numerous problems in running. Now, I've just recently gotten the sims 2 deluxe and it was running okay but now I've gotten an expansion pack for it and the game works okay once after installation then will no open again and gives me an error.
"The application has crashed and will now terminate" I've tried absolutely everything (and making sure my games and applications meet the system requirements, and they do, running it in compatibility mode, updating my sims games which open for business update will not update after installing it once. It works if i install it immediately after I install OFB..but even then so, it crashes after one time playing the game!).......
I currently have a HP Pavillion Notebook installed with Windows Vista Home Premium, and everytime I try to do a PC Health Check with Total Care Advisor, I get the blue screen and my comp shuts down. I already went to HP support, but they didn't fix it either.
When installing a printer - at various stages of the process, the installation will fail. Two messages appear:
1) Unable to install printer. Operation could not be completed (error 0x000006be)
2) Spooler subsystem app stopped working and was closed. A problem caused the application to stop working correctly.
Windows will notify you if a solution is available. This computer is running Windows Vista. This issue occurs with SP1 as well. This computer has been re-imaged several times and the issue is still there.
