The whole problem stems from the fact that my Office 2007 icons have magically disappeared, so I tried to run the Office diagnostic tool. But when I did, it mentioned an error about the event log service. I tried to go see if it was started or not, but when I did I realized that it wasn't even there. All of the registry values are present and correct so I don't know what the problem is.
So I enter the pin to connect to windows media center, that goes through fine, and it starts contacting on my Xbox and just as it's about to "configuring your extender" it cuts off and displays "Windows media center has encountered an error while trying to configure your computer with this extender". I checked event viewer and the error is as follows:-Media Center Extender Setup cannot create an account for the Extender with ID: uuid:10000000-0000-0000-0200-0025AE2444B5.Error: The system cannot find the file specified.
P.S Tried with all Xbox 360 port forwarding set to open for those relevant ports. Certificate deleted. Network services set up correctly. Firewall been turned off. No anti virus enabled. DMZ filtered on xbox both enabled and disabled, IP address are not clashing and im connected wirelessly on both PC and Xbox.
"Missing operating system" massage is coming when i start my system and i am not able to start. I think because , i had given "mark partition as active" option for one hard dive (E) in disk management when last time i opened. it did not have any data. i did not know, this will make any problem. Now i am not able to boot windows re installation dvd also. i can only take BIOS settings.
I just got a computer for free, a Dell Studio 1555. When I got it, it would try to boot, then come to a screen that said that bootmgr.exe was missing. Sometimes I got a message that said something like mpio.sys was corrupted or missing. I have a Win 7 disk, so I put it in and tried to repair the installation. Each time I ran it, it said that the repair had failed. I tried to reinstall windows 7, and It made it to the first restart in the process. It showed the "Starting Windows" screen, but the colors of the windows logo never appeared, then I got the missing bootmgr screen. I decided to install Ubuntu and see if that worked, and it did (I installed it alongside the Windows installation). It was Ubuntu 10.04. I thought, "OK, so i'll just use this as a Linux machine"...and I decided to go back and reinstall so that I could use the entire hard drive. It never worked correctly again. Each subsequent time that I installed Ubuntu, I was told something along the lines of "Gnome Power Manager did not install correctly" and got a slow and choppy Ubuntu installation.Tried to install 11.10, and it failed completely. I opened the Ubuntu live from my usb drive, and opened the disk utility. I now cannot format, reformat, partition, or delete partitions on the drive. Is all of this just a case of a hard drive on its last legs, or is there something else going on here?

Ok i have windows 7, Recently i have found out that i have a full list of errors that happened pretty much overnight:Here's the list 1. I can't go onto Control Panel It say's " This operation has been canceled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator" I AM THE ADMIN.. I am the only account too. 2. My Task bar is missing, When i go ctrl-alt-del i see no option to open up my task bar. [FIXED] 3. I cant RIGHT click on anything on my desktop, as well as my folders and stuff. Although i can right click while playing games or browsing the internet, so my mouse is definitely not broken. So u must be thinking, this guy has a virus for sure... Well if i do have a virus it must be made by ******* Bill Gates. Because i can't find it.I have the FULL version of Trend Micro Cillin as well as Norton 360, I've just recently downloaded Malvare Bytes, and that couldn't find anything as well. I've done a full system scam on both anti-virus programs, i see no viruses. I did get a virus a week ago, but Norton quickly picked it up, I'm thinking it may have changed a few settings in my computer before i managed to delete it.
in order to restore my system . In fact when i open the system properties i realise that System Protection tab was missing. Launching the tab by its executable, SystemProtectionProperties.exe, did not launch the tab, either.
I tried to search in the registry for HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESoftwarePoliciesMicrosoftWindows NTSystemRestoreDisableSR
I didn't find the SystemRestore Folder. I only found the Windows File Protection folder and Terminal Services folder
Don't have the specified path to Bluetooth Media Service and Bluetooth Device Monitor in system services...It appears the programs are missing. Any Ideas how or where to get them back?NEW Dell xps 15 laptopWindows 7 Home Ulitmate 64 bit
I have windows t pro and all of a sudden System restore has disappeared. If I type system restore in the search box, the closest thing I get is "restore your computer to am earlier time".checked c:UsersYourNameApplicationDataRoamingMicrosoftWindowsStartMenuProgramsAccessoriesSystem Tools and it's not their either. I have a feeling it was a Paragon Drive Clone program that screwed everything up. It even turned on system protection for one of my other drives. Microsoft Shadow Copy Provider was also off.
Have just registered to see if anyone has any ideas for a solution to a problem with my that is running Windows 7 (I think 64bit). It refuses to boot and just says "missing operating system".Using the repair option on a boot disc does not work (have tried 3 times)If I boot using a windows 7 cd/dvd I only get given the option to install windows.I can see both hard drives in the BIOS.I am able to get to a DOS prompt using the boot disc, but have no idea about DOS myself.When booting from the Windows 7 cd I was able to see the C: drive but it would not open, saying it needs formatting before use.I think that's about it, will post anything else relevant if I think of anything.
on my home pc i have windows 7 but was not geniune,it worket fine till one day it couldnt reboot and said missing operating system,i tried with fixing like repair,still nothing,i tried with formating and it appeared some error 0x8. some big number and it said it could not format,i tried again on my d drajv still nothing,i made also cd to be the first for booting on my bios stil nothing,so what could it be damn any solution for this?
I have a msi-gx680 laptop , I used my Recovery DVDs (which I had created mine by MSI RECOVERY software on my laptop) to restore my C drive to manufacture settings. When I insert the first DVD, recovery process would start but it goes half of the way and finishes, showing (Successfully Recovery!) but it doesn't need the second or third DVD, and when I restart my laptop the phrase "Missing Operating System" would appear.
Computer rarely restarts during the time I am using it. It restarts if I leave stuff downloading overnight or if I leave on during the day. I then have to re-install any software I installed the previous time because it says it was shutdown improperly ( CRASHED).
I then check the Event logger and see it has multiple crash reports.
I show 20 of these crashes so far and I just built the system yesterday. I need help in determining what could be causing this. The motherboard? Old Videocard? Windows 7? 64 Bit platform? Any thoughts?

So my father went on a rampage and deleted a bunch of random files in his C-drive of his laptop, and emptied the recycle bin. The next time he switches on the laptop all letters are gone. As if the system is missing the language feature - everything where there should be letters / symbols belonging to a language, it's messed up symbols + signs.
How may I re-install them? Already tried a backup, didn't do a difference. One thing I have noticed, however, is that he has Comodo System Utilities installed, and everytime on boot (black screen straight after HP logo) it says that's doing something. However, he didn't use the program to delete, just the delete bottom and "empty recycle bin." Then I have tried restoring deleted files via Tune Up Utilities, still no help. Finally I've spammed F2 at the HP logo screen on startup and doing system checks. - what if I get a Windows Vista Service pack and install, will this return the missing symbols for the language?
I would like to do a system restore, but when I try to do so (system protection/system restore), it tells me that "no restore points have been created on your hard drive".
2 weeks ago I successfully did a system restore, and I have not changed any settings since then. My recovery partition is still in place, the disk manager says the recovery drive has 8 GB out of 15 GB free. Could the restore point be in my recovery partition, but for some reason Windows isn't seeing it? How would I view the recovery partition to check?
with a little internet problem on a Windows 7 professional system.
Essentially, last week after an Update, I could not get back onto my driver (the hard drive is partitioned so I have a section and my other half has another). A system restore to the previous day has allowed me to access the computer again, but the internet is gone.
The OH can use the internet on the same computer (I am on his half now), so there is no fault with the modem, the cable or the internet connection per se. We have tried to restore the internet using various manual methods, but can get no further than the SetUp. At this point we get a message Error 711, and reports that the Remote Access Auto Connection Manager is not responding.
I have tried to fix this today, but cannot get onto the services to fix it - when I click on Services and go to 'run as admin', the message appears "Class not Registered". I have also had this message when trying to connect the internet by writing a manual IP address, and when looking for the IP drivers.
The OH is threatening F*kdisk which would mean I lose everything on the drive, but I do not have another solution.
odd problem really and not even sure when it started.But when ever the system starts (reboot or cold) there is no usb drivers installed or the firewire unibrain driver.I go to devices and printers and there is the esclamation sign over the icon for for computer then right click it press trouble shoot and it sorts it self out.
I just shipped my computer out of the UK. One of the HHDs my OS was RAID 0ed to broke. Obviously I got a missing operating system error from that. So then I deleted the RAID volume and changed my boot 1st priority to my DVD drive so i could reinstall Windows on the hdd that's still alive at least.
I am getting the "Missing Operating System" message on boot. Here is the strange thing...if I change the boot order in the BIOS and have CDROM first and choose not to boot off of it Windows 7 loads fine. If I put HARDDISK first then I get the missing operating system message. I have tried running CHKDSK, BOOTREC and the plain old Windows repair util. None of them have worked.
I have run the "create system image" successfully until today. I have an external HD for that image file. It appears to run, goes through the steps and says it has created the image. But when I go to the external HD and click on the Image file that was created there is nothing there. It shows 0. What could I have done to do this. I even looked for that image file on my C: drive, just in case, but it is not there either.
I've been using my new desktop for the last couple of months. Didn't have any problems until all of a sudden my computer just completely shut down and restarted while I was using it. And now it cannot boot, it just comes up with a 'Missing Operating System' message! I went into BIOS and it still detects my hard drive.
I booted from my Windows 7 CD and it looks like its going to load from my CD, and then it just stalls and comes up with the same message.. 'Missing Operating System'
I get the "operating system missing_" error on power up of my lenovo ideacenter that is 4 weeks old. I have recently installed the net from Time-Warner on cable.. I called lenovo and the tech gave me the "press F2 while turning the power on to it". This works but why do I need to do this? What gives with it working and then it doesn't .... I have not moved, touched, jostled it or anything to it that I didn't do when it was first installed. It works fine but will this indicate a future of trouble? I have virus protection from McAfee is this not enough?
