Preferred Solution: Music and pictures corrupt

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/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Power outage due to storm. Came back on without pictures and documents. It's an HP desktop. Would a file recovery program work? I've tried some of the instructions online, but they don't work.

Hi all,
I've just installed Windows 8.1 onto my friend's laptop, a Sony Vaio.
Originally, there are 2 partitions: C for Windows 8.1 (143GB) and D for Data (165GB).

I decreased partition C to 43GB and increased D to 265 GB by using Acronis Disk Director Suite from Hiren's Boot CD. Unfortunately, the process crashed. Partition D's format became RAW and whenever I open it, what I see is "Disk structure is corrupt and unreadable".

What can I do now?
Somebody, please help me.
Thank you very much.
 

A:Disk structure is corrupt and unreadable

Hi there,
What is your primary goal at the moment to recover the partition or to format it and make is usable? You might try using some kind of partition recovery software, but if the data that's on this partition is important you might think about using professional data recovery services. Good luck.

Hey guys, I am going on holiday in early June and am looking for a way to listen to music while I'm in the pool as I plan to spend a lot of time doing so.
The way I can see it is that I have two options:

Buy a waterproof case and waterproof headphones
buy a waterproof MP3 player all-in-one.
Obviously each option has it's flaws - otherwise I wouldn't be there.
Even if I buy a waterproof case how can I be sure that even though there is a waterproof case, where it contacts with waterproof earphones will be waterproof as 'waterproof' to some sellers just means rain-proof.
The problem with the all in ones like the Sony Waterproof Walkman is that they are very expensive for very little space, the 4GB alone being 50 and 8GB is 80.

Does anyone have experience in the matter, anything they can recommend, preferably I'd like to use my phone in a case for my 32GB MicroSD card, but whatever works I guess.

Cheers guys.

I've downloaded photos from my camera's memory card onto my computer, the whole photo comes up at first in the thumbnail and then part of the photo gets blanked out with a grey block or the photo becomes distorted. I've tried it on another computer and it does the same. Can anyone help me recover them?
 

A:Corrupt photo files

Hi, If you are seeing a part of your photo, say just the top 10% but the rest is grey, then it means that the grey part has been saved over by another jpeg file, so that means it must have been deleted at some time earlier.
The thumbnail version you see is a different version, but is only a few hundred bytes of data . To cut a long story down, the jpegs are are gone.
A good program to recover jpegs from memory cards etc, is Piriform's 'Recuva' , but it can't get back data that's been saved over, only jpeg files that have been marked 'delete' BUT have not yet been written over by another jpeg file.

Hi Guys Mike here,My old computer crashed during a lightening storm(mobo was bad)and bought a new HP pavillion slimline.Whats the best way to get "my documents "my pictures" from my old hD.This very important to me as i have a lot of pics of my daughter on that old hd and she passed away 8/26/2010 at the age of 39.Thanks Regards Mike
 

A:Best way to transfer my documents/pictures from corrupt hard drive

Hi Mike
Assuming your hard drive is still in working order and uncorrupted by the lightning strike I don`t think it should be too difficult.
I had a similar problem and got round it by buying a :- USB 2.0 to SATA IDE Hard Drive Adapter Converter Cable, of Ebay in the UK for approx 7.USB-SATA-IDE-Hard-Drive-Adapter-Converter (brilliant piece of kit and worth every penny)
Just remove the HD from the old computer and power it up on your desk using the purchased device and connect to your new computer USB port.
Open Windows Explorer on your new computer to view the contents of your old HD and "Drag and Drop" or "Copy & Paste" the files required to your new computer.
If your old HD is corrupt as mine was you may require some suitable software. I used "EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard" (not the free edition) although the free edition may be worth trying before going to any great expense.
Hopefully your HD is uncorrupted.
Hope you fully understood my explanation and good luck.
Regards
Danny

Having dredged the internet, I came across this forum amongst the many with questions relating to cd drives working but dvd not etc, but my issue is slightly different, i think.

CDs seem to play ok, and so do DVDs, but I seem to have a problem with my laptop reading a disc with DS games on it that it used to read no problem. The discs can be used in my other half's laptop, so it is clearly a problem with my laptop.

I'd appreciate if anyone could advise where I can start to solve this problem

You need to have the CD/DVD drive replaced. Internal lasers fail in strange ways. The drives are not too expensive and they are easy to replace

As a part time DJ i spend a lot of time playing the same laptop a Recording music from music in the same order so i was thinking what if i Recording music from a laptop could just sit down and record the tracks that i play Recording music from a laptop directly into one Recording music from a laptop big MP and then it would save me having to load and cue each track I use a program called ClubDJ Pro its a twin deck system with a predefined playlist i can usually just load a playlist and tell it to cross fade during the last quot X quot seconds of the song X being a set time between and seconds However i find some songs have an extended silence at the end that can when i first played them mess up the auto cross fade facility and as anyone will tell you silence is deadly when your doing DJ ing So is there a program i can use to either record directly from my program or use another PC or laptop to record onto i assume i would use the earphone out on one to the Line In socket on the other PC Laptop and then record onto that It would be good as it then means i can use different mixes of my own nbsp

I read that to create a backup CD of My Pictures I I I Pictures think lost My should drag the My Pictures desktop shortcut icon to the CD drive shortcut icon and drop it there I think I lost My Pictures I did that I closed My Pictures and played the newly created CD I looked at several pictures Confident that my pictures were now safe on the CD I deleted most of the pictures in My Pictures Still confident I emptied the Recycle Bin Today I needed a couple pictures from the CD I opened the CD and Xclicked the My Pictures icon thinking I was going to view the pictures I had put on the CD Finding only a few pictures I realized that the My Pictures icon on the CD had opened the My Pictures file on the computer Can anyone tell me how I can get to the pictures on the CD As long as that My Pictures icon is on the CD I don t know how to get past it The CD is a CD-R so I can t remove the icon I m thinking if I could somehow disable the My Pictures on my computer I could get to the pictures on the CD and make a new CD without the My Pictures icon Or do it on a different computer that doesn t have a My Pictures program I m using Windows XP home nbsp

A:I think I lost My Pictures

It sounds like you copied the shortcut to My Pictures onto your CD. Double click on My Computer, right click on the CD you have supposedly copied your pictures to, then click on Explore. You should be able to browse your pictures. Or instead of clicking on Explore, click on Properties. It should tell you the total MB of pictures. 300 pictures would probably be couple hundred MB. If that's not what you see, then thing didn't go as you hoped.

At this point, you should prepare yourself that some of the pictures might be unrecoverable. Use programs like Recuva or Photorec and see what can be recovered. Better to install these on a USB drive rather than C: (assuming that's where you saved the pictures) and risk overwriting the "deleted files".

A few months ago I attempted to update the BIOS on my laptop in an attempt to fix some hardware errors, however when I did so I didn't have enough knowledge to know that doing it through windows was a decision I was later going to deeply regret the process crashed half way through leaving me with a corrupt BIOS chip.

The laptop turns on, the lights flash on the keyboard, and thats it, nothing on the screen, the computer turns on only. Is the BIOS chip something that is easily removable in a laptop? if so then the possibility of buying a new one to either repair the old one, or simply replace it, will still be an option....
However, if the BIOS chip is not removable... is there anything I can do to repair my BIOS? I dont get to any kind of boot screen so reflashing from any disk is impossible.

Thanks for any advice
 

A:Corrupt BIOS :(

On a desktop I've heard of a Boot-Block BIOS. his is small area of the BIOS that doesn't get overwritten when you flash a BIOS. The boot-block BIOS only has support for the floppy drive. If you have a PCI video card you won't see anything on the screen because the boot-block BIOS only supports an ISA video card. Once the PC boots using the Boot-Block, the old BIOS image is restored.

You could try out flashing the BIOS from a CD: http://www.bootdisk.com/flash.htm

You may also try taking out the battery and boot only with the power adapter connected. Don't think it will help, but worth a try.

If it doesn't work I suggest you contact the laptop manufacturer for details on what can be done in your case.

A:Corrupt system volume

How old is your hard drive. This can happen when there are failure sites on the hard drive.
Usually, you can cold boot to the VISTA cd, then run a new install in Repair mode (not restore mode), and everything gets patched up... but the problem will happen again if the hard drive is going bad.

Or you could save all data, and try to run the VISTA recovery partition...

You can take out the drive to examine it for date... or you can run a download of Belarc Advisor that will give you an inventory of everything in the computer.

Once again this beginner on the computer is having a problem, to make things easier I am not upset at being guided to a tuturial or another site... I am greatful for any and all help. PROBLEM ...

I also had a few movies that I had created and can not open them.... any advice from you folks.... you have been so fantastic with my other problems, I invite you all to Kansas for a beer ..... thank you Nashkan (Dan)
 

A:Getting my pictures back after system restoral

Dan,
When I formatted my W2k computer and upgraded to XP Pro years ago i woke up in the middle of the night and realized one CD wasn't big enough to hold all my photos. I had many GBs of photos. I bought a program ($30 to 35) called Active Undelete. found at:
http://www.active-undelete.com/
And after many hours of scanning I actually restored all my photos where there were none when I started.

I found out formatting doesn't really remove data!

I'm thinking that without gaming ambitions, the new Intel core i3 CPUs might meet your needs with their integrated graphics. These give pretty decent scores in
the Windows Experience Index, something like 4.9 for Areo, and 5.3 for business and gaming graphics. To the best of my knowledge, the matching H55/ H57 Intel chipset motherboards provide Fire Wire input.

You should first subscribe to Newegg's Email list, so you can grab your parts as they become available on sale.

Here is Intel's list of socket LGA1156 CPUs available at Newegg; http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...=2010340343 50001157 1051749233&name=LGA 1156


And the matching integrated graphics H55/ H57 boards in the Gigabyte brand; http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...01314 1070549182 107173338&name=Intel H55/H57 Be sure to pick one with 4 memory sockets. (4 out or 5 do). I have this one; http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128421

Please pay no attention to the bad reviews for this product, they were all written by imbeciles claiming, "high technical ability". I don't know squat about computers, and I had one of these systems up and running perfectly, with Windows 7 installed, in about 3 hours.

In fact, I'm hoping Newegg will offer "don't know squat" as a technical ability claim option. That way, I'll be able to check, "don't know squat", and report, "it works perfectly for me, 5 stars"!

Here is a test report done on a few of these boards at Techspot; http://www.techspot.com/review/259-intel-h55-motherboard-shootout/

Hello everyone A few days ago on my Lenovo IBM T laptop Partition/MBR?

Probably because it is missing....if you have a disk, try to use the recovery console (I think you can still do that on windows7).

hopefully there is nothing important on it, I would reformat it completely. First run the disk check utility on it though, make sure you have it checked to fix corrupted blocks. If check disk doesn't find anything format.

I have a strange experience with sounds lately I have no come background games of music sound How some different? idea why this happening or what is causing it but here it is How come some background music of games sound different? One day I was doing some light gaming on both my tower and laptop since both my computers meets the minimum requirements and while playing this game I heard some unusual sounds on both How come some background music of games sound different? my laptop and tower my laptop while playing the background music of the game seemed to be missing a couple or not few sound types in the game On my tower it sounded like it had an extra beat as if I could here that extra sound s with the background music playing I can t explain real good but to simplify this my laptop seemed to be lacking of some melody beats while my tower has it all and slightly deeper bass I turned my laptop speakers high yet no extra melody beat appeared I How come some background music of games sound different? did the same with the tower sounded the same as before but just louder I am sure I installed this game on both my computer successfully with no errors I reinstalled it again and same problem occurred I don t understand is the speakers more sensitive on the tower and giving it more variety of sounds or is the laptop speakers not so sensitive in outputting more variety of sounds Or both are wrong and it is just the matter of XP and VISTA or is it the software or drivers installed for the sounds Is something wrong with the speakers Do I need buy better ones Ones that s suppose to act normal nbsp

A:How come some background music of games sound different?

try updating your sound drivers first, then you might want to look into past problems others might have had with this games sound. Since this happened to both your computers at the same time it sounds like the problem is the game.

A simple test to see if your speakers are broke is just...play music on them. Does it sound fine? yes? then it's not your speakers

unfortunatly without knowing what game it is that you are talking about I can't really look into any problems others have had with it.

Does anyone know what would cause a file system error when running applications from 2 different OS's on the same drive? In other words, I'm trying to run some Steam games under 7 that were installed using XP. I have the reg settings all imported and Steam works fine but after a minute or so they all crash to desktop. I go into the Event Viewer and it states that the file system is corrupt. Even if i boot back into XP, chkdsk runs, but then the games work fine running in XP. Thoughts?

I am running XP/Win7 on my AMD 64 Athlon 3400+ powered Pavillion. I have an integrated Realtek AC'97 audio card and lately I've noticed that all music playback is choppy - whether it's iTunes, Windows Media Player, or Youtube. I've tried different speakers, headphones, etc., but reagrdless of the hardware I use, I still get the same problem. It sounds as if the music is being paused and then played very quickly throughout the song. I don't really notice it in Windows sound effects, but that may be because they are short in length. I notice this happening on both XP and Windows 7 and don't know why.

Please help!!!
 

A:Music Playback is Choppy

Try updating your audio and chipset driver. There could also be a program running in the background taking up to much memory or CPU cycles. If you listen to music alot you should get a dedicated sound card. You can get a really good Audigy on Ebay for under $15. Onboard audio is notoriously troublesome. Too many other things in the system can interfere with it.

Hi All,

My computer wasn't booting, saying something about drive not accessible so took out HDD and plugged it into another PC, it tried to run chkdsk but wasn't allowed because "corrupt master file table". Tried to access it on another computer and came up with "Disk structure is corrupt and not readable". I have since formatted the HDD, read another post on this forum as to how to recover files and fix the problem but what i really want to know is, WHY DID THIS HAPPEN? And how can i prevent it from happening again? Is my HDD on its way out and need to be replaced? Did i do something wrong cause i only formatted it about a week ago due to viruses...

Any help greatly appreciated!
 

A:Disk structure is corrupt and not readable

I would replace that hard drive, then save the exisiting one for saving data or special projects... but beware that you may have some other serious, but intermittent, problem with the computer... Likely a power supply, or cable jack, or other issue.
You didn't tell us the age of your system, or brand, or brand or hard drive. It is always easy to speculate about the computer of somebody else...
You can possibly prevent it by spending some money for an uninterruptible power supply with battery that connects between your computer and the wall, being sure you have a quality power supply, assuring that all people who use that computer follow good procedures for shut down, backing up your data religiously, installing more memory than you need, replacing your optical drive every year whether it seems bad or not, and thinking pure thoughts.
Good luck to you. If anything goes awry, please let us know.

If I try to retrieve the Name attribute of Win32_Battery, I get non-alphanumerical information which then causes a problem with using this info as text (log file etc).

Can anyone help?

A simple example:-


Code:
Const wbemFlagReturnImmediately = &h10
Const wbemFlagForwardOnly = &h20

strComputer = "."

Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:\\" & strComputer & "\root\CIMV2")
Set colItems = objWMIService.ExecQuery("SELECT * FROM Win32_BIOS", "WQL", wbemFlagReturnImmediately + wbemFlagForwardOnly)

For Each objItem In colItems
WScript.Echo "Name: " & objItem.Name
Next
This gives "DELL RM6618B" followed by a random set of non-alphanumerical characters.

An example output is = (DELL RM6618B??? ??? ? Y???)

which when viewed in a Hex Editor is :-
44 45 4C 20 52 4D 36 36 31 38 42 (this bit is Dell RM6618B) then,

Hey all having used Acer s for the Acer upgrade info 5920 and pictures last few weeks I decided to open the little guy up and take a few shots Acer 5920 pictures and upgrade info I didn t have time to do a full tear down so here are the first few shots And yes all I had Acer 5920 pictures and upgrade info at the time was the camera on my phone The shots to take not of are the ones showing the MXM type II graphics card So a video upgrade is indeed possible The other being the network card and the one empty slot that mirror s it on the motherboard Expansion Possible to add an quot N quot spec or others later on Any thoughts Also I forgot to take one but the CPU is not soddered in it s your standard Core Duo socket So yes you can upgrade it just be careful with your thermals The picture with the giant white label in it is the network card Again sorry for the Acer 5920 pictures and upgrade info crappy quality I ll get new ones up when I ve got time to take it apart again nbsp

A:Acer 5920 pictures and upgrade info

icic....
it's good to see acer can be "halfway"opened like my old travelmate.

hence it's possible to clean CPU heatsink without doing full teardown..

some series of acer does not allow this, they only allow to open the RAM and HDD case. hence when it's time to clean the CPU heatsink and fan, big teardown must be done...

anyway 5920G is a nice laptop...
my housemate has one and it's one of the most impressive acer
bad thing is that it cant be 200* opened (screen) like old travelmate series

I have an external hard drive that failed today. I presume it's because I have a loose USB cable, and it got pulled out while the drive was being used. Anyway, there's information on that drive that I really do not want to lose. Windows actually asked me to format the drive, but I don't want to do that. Is there anything I can do to get my data back?

I thought about formatting and then using a data recovery program, but there's no guarantee that I'll get all my data back, is there?

Oh, and I can hear the drive spinning just fine, so I don't think it's gone beyond hope. I'm pretty sure a format would put it back to a state where I can use it...it's just that all my data will be gone.

Whenever I have inserted a cd in a drive and selected explore, I have been able to see the file type. I bought a cd, karaoke style -- for all practical purposes here -- and when I inserted the CD I only found pdf files which hold the sheet music. I always make a copy of these cds in case one becomes damaged. On two computers I was completely surprised that I could see nothing except the PDF files. Is there a way to see the music files?
 

A:Music files

Purhaps you did not buy a CD with music on it. It may be a karaoke cd that gives you sheet music to some popular songs to let them play and sing it yourself (thus the karaoke).

I cant think of anything else because if thats ALL thats on the disk then the obove situation is accurate in my opinion

What is the brand and model of your computer, and the brand and model of your graphics card? Or do you have on-board graphics. The issues you discuss are usually related to lower quality graphics cards combined with the softrware used to view and edit the photos. You might want to consider something like Adobe Elements 5.0 (goor price) or Adobe Elements 6.0 (big price jump with little improvement over 5.0)

I have encountered a problem when I have tried to burn music to cd r. The drive will play music ok- so no problem there. However when I try to burn some tracks it will only record about 10 seconds. I will then get an error message saying that my cd is dirty or may be recording at wrong speed. Have tried other speeds without any success also tried downloading latest version of window media and closed all other applications that may have caused even a remote problem. Can anyone help or have any suggestions how to fix this problem?
 

A:Can't Burn music to cd

Is this a laptop or a desktop computer.
It seems as if your CD drive is worn out of alignment. Either the read laser or the write laser is out of whack or it is just worn out. How old is the drive?
Burners last about a year, on average... less, if used a lot. It is easier and cheaper to replace them, than to fix them.
If you are in a dusty climate, you can remove the bottom from the burner, and use Dust Off or other canned air with difluoroethane gas to clean the unit. Do not touch the laser... just blow dust out of the drive.
There are some utilities that will reset the burner on some models. Do a Gurgle search for your brand and model.

If so then it must be Ram (even though tested) or CPU, you can re-paste even laptop CPUs.

Also detach anything connected externally to the laptop
And run CMOS setup defaults

If it's not software, it must be hardware.

I'll insert a cd into the drive at the autoplay box does popup saying it is an audio cd, so the drive WILL recognize the disc. However upon attempting to playback or rip, the drive will endlessly try to read the disc, freezing whichever program I'm using to playback/rip.

I'm using windows xp home.

A couple of the pictures in my slide show are too big I guess. I did reduce the size of one pic to 250x199 and things are lost at the top and bottom. Another picture is 560x420 and on the sides I lose some stuff that goes over the edge of my TV when I play the DVD.

So reducing the pics didnt seem to help.

Then I right clicked on pics in the timeline, and selected Crop. That seems like its supposed to help me make the pic fit the TV screen, but no luck.

What am I doing wrong?

When I watch the slide show using the Nero play and view screen, the pictures are fine, but on a burned DVD, afew pics are too big.

You might have Temporary "files waiting to be written to the disk" in explorer.

put an empty disk in the drive open my computer and double click on the CD/DVD-RW drive, if any files appear in explorer greyed out then delete them by clicking "Delete these temporary files".

if you have any open windows that are showing the contents of the drive then you should close them too. other than that then there's probably another program monitoring the drive, could be a media player that you set to monitor your Drive for playable media.

hi.. i'm a music producer... and my main tool is Reason 4 software from PropellerHeads... and i want to buy a new PC... and my dilema is the CPU..
which one do you think i should buy.. the new 45nm E8400 or the old Q6600??
the problem with Reason is that it's not biult for multi core CPUs so i guess the E8400 should do the job better... but recently i saw some tests with Reason running on a Q6600 and i was amazed...
really dunno what to do here. and my mainboard of choice is the Gigabyte G33-DS3R... hope someone could help me on this one!

thanks in advanced!!
 

A:Intel E8400 or Q6600 for music production?

To Err Is Human....To Forgive Is Not in the Nature of Computers...

Either the 8400 or the 6600 should give more than adequate performance with music files. (By "more than adequate", I mean spectacular). I don't want to overstep my knowledge here, but I'm guessing that music files don't present the same degree of difficulty as 1920 X 1200 High Def Video encoding. Which I'm sure software engineers are currently rushing to adapt applications for quad (or more), core use. Point being you couldn't go wrong with either CPU.
BIOS updating can be a tricky and risky affair. That being said, I would check which BIOS version is present in the Motherboard before making a decision on which CPU to buy. The E8400 would absolutely require a BIOS update, whereas the Q6600 might not. IMHO, the plug and play part always wins.
Then there's always plan "C": wait for a 45nm quad CPU.

I found this to be quite interesting, I have Nero 6 which is not at least 3 years old. When I use the"advanced analysis" function in "Recode" (essentially "DVDshrink") on my machine with a Pentium Dual Core E2200, task manager is telling me that BOTH cores are operating at 100%. I didn't think that this version of Nero was even written for dual core CPUs, but there you have it, clipping along at up to 1000 FPS, firing on both barrels!

A:Ntoskrnl.dll missing or corrupt

If it is indeed the hard drive that is faulty, then yes, replacing it will make the problem go away. Of course, the issue could be something much more serious like a broken motherboard.

You remove the password by using the proper settings in the BIOS setup. You need to know the existing password of course. (Better go and find that someone who set the password in the first place).

A:Corrupt SD Card

if you have tried file recovery programs with no luck, then there is not much else to do. These are solid state devices and should always have their contents backed up.

Toshiba lap top satellite M115-S3144
Windows XP Media Center Edition
Intel Centrino 5500
2 GB of Ram

Periodically playing music is skipping, crackles, garbled, etc. After "out of box" restore will work OK for awhile.....then starts garbling up again.............

Any thoughts?

Pete
 

A:Garbled music often when playing off my Toshiba laptop

Follow these four steps:

Do a clean boot. Clear temp and prefetch.
Create a restore point and then update the sound card drivers.
Also try to install KLite codecs from filehippo.com
Do Windows Updates.

Hi all,

Winamp's being... temperamental, to say the least.
I have a music library of ~2000 songs which I want to get it to sync to my MP3 player. It recognizes that my player is connected to my PC just fine, but when I tell it to sync all 2000 songs in one shot the program freezes and crashes.
I really do NOT want to have to sit at my PC for hours and sync my music library 50 songs at a time. Is there a workaround for this problem or am I just going to have to bite the bullet?

Thanks,

-'Mage

EDIT: Mods, please delete this thread, I reposted it in "Misc. Software". Thanks.

A:Sound prob w/Audigy 2 ZS - No music - games work ?

Google for Driver Cleaner Pro and make sure all instances of the Audigy drivers are removed. Go to Creative's Support site and download the Soundblaster Audigy 2 ZS latest drivers. Install them and see if your sound returns to normal

hey everbody,

i have a slight problem on my hands. when i play oblivion, the in-game music skips a lot. all the other sounds like footsteps/swords/battles/environments play perfectly fine but the background music won't stop skipping. I use a creative x-fi soundblaster xtreme music card to which i recently updated the drivers to and a sennheiser hd555 headset as well. I can provide any extra info needed.

thanks in advance,
funk

Hi
Got a problem with pc in that it wont boot up. I get a message saying corrupt or missing c:\windows\system32\config\system. Have looked on the internet and it says to reboot using the riginal cd and use the 'r' option to repair. Thing is that I dont get the repair option when i boot from the xp cd. It just looks like it would if you were installing from scratch.

Stu
 

A:C\windows\system32\config\system corrupt

Will it boot into safe mode ok?

Hello,

I've googled this problem up, but none have seemed to work for me at all. When i boot up my laptop (IBM Thinkpad 570E) it gives me the error message "Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: System32\DRIVERS\pci.sys

You can attempt to repair this file by starting Windows Setup using the original CD-ROM. Select 'r' at the first screen to start repair." or its just a black screen.

My laptop, unfortunately, does not have a cd drive or a floppy disc drive, i've tried plugging in an external cd drive, but it didn't seem to read the cd at all. So right now i'm completely clueless as to how to fix this big black paperweight. I'd greatly appreciate it if anyone can give me some pointers on how to fix this. thank you.
 

A:Problems with missing/corrupt system32\DRIVERS\pci.sys

You probably need to go into the computer BIOS and set the first boot device to the CD-ROM, and try again.

I have a western digital Gb hard-drive that I pulled from my old gateway and enclosed to use as an external to swap the data to my new systems It has been working fine I last used it Thursday was not in Hard-drive? Corrupt the office on friday and attempted to use it today monday and I received a quot cannot access because of I O device error quot mesage I ran the chkdsk and it did a bunch of whirring and clicking and now I can see it in my computer and get the properties up by right clicking but now if I try to access it I get an quot incorrect parameter quot error message and in the properties it says there is no data and no space available Also when I hooked it back up to the gateway it wont boot just gives me a blinking cursor and a red smiley face in the lower left corner Any ideas I have a lot of files on there I need Any chance to recover or am I just screwed nbsp

A:Corrupt Hard-drive?

External enclosures are well known for frying hard drives. I suspect a data recovery specialist is the only way you will get your data back and that will be expensive.

I have saved and named (using Adobe Photoshop) about 150 pictures in a folder in My Pictures in XP. Later when I go back to add some add to the folder from a CD from a relative the original photos in the folder have become mixed up and they seem out of order and the names do not coorespond to the photo. When I view them as a slideshow they are in the correct order, but when viewed as a thumbnail the thumbnail does not coorespond to the name. If I "save as" each picture then they are coorespond again to name, but I'm tired of having to go back and resave each picture all over again. This happens lately to larger folders of pictures that I add to My Pictures. Does any one know what causes this and how to prevent or fix the problem.

The names in a folder view will be different than that of your camera software.
What 'slideshow' software are you using?

Here is a picture of the inside of my case, the ram is OCZ ddr2 800 MHZ 2gb, dual channel blah blah... i know i know... probably a stupid question...
I put them on the right slots because on the left, the cpu cooler kinda touches.


and here is what the manuel says. just the picture dont make sense to me.


and everest! why does it say ddr2800 (400) MHZ??!?!

 

A:Need Help With Ram (PICTURES)

Both are correct. Either A1-B1 or A2-B2 for dual channel. The slots are colour coded as well. DDR2-800 runs at 400MHz.

I hope that this is in the right section It may not even be a computer problem since the problem is solved when the computer is relocated however I could sure use a suggestion on who might have an answer When I play any music whether stored on the HD play a commercial music CD or a home burned plays music stutter with a All CD at some point about seconds into the music it takes a second long stutter followed All music plays with a stutter by a very short slow-down much like dragging your finger on a vinyl record as it plays then the music plays normally for maybe minute or so The periods between the stuttering is random Now I All music plays with a stutter have computers in my office network This is happening on every PC in the offices To test the possibilities I burned a fresh CD and played it on every PC The stuttering took place as usual randomly each time it was played I took it out to my car and played it There was no stuttering I packed up my PC and took it home to my home office I set it up and played music again There was no stuttering Music from the HD commercial CD and my home-burns all played fine The only variable here is the electricity Each PC is plugged into a UPS unit so I suspect the lines are clean coming in I know electricity can be dirty but I ve talked to two expert electricians and they have both looked at me like I was nuts They think that this is not an electrical problem So here I am in that impossible spot with a problem that just defies all logic There must be an answer Can anyone suggest who might be capable of answering such a problem nbsp

A:All music plays with a stutter

I know this sounds odd but you dont have roadworks or any building work near you by any chance? I had a wierd problem like this when there was a lot of groundwork being done outside my house. As soon as the builders packed up and left it was fine.
