Windows XP Repair Guide| Step by Step
When xp goes down don't reinstall,use this
simple repair method...
Windows XP Repair Guide| Step by
Step
The "it" in this case is XP's most powerful rebuild/repair option, and yet Microsoft
chose to hide it behind seeming dead ends, red herrings, and a recycled interface
that makes it hard to find and (at first) somewhat confusing to use.

But it's worth exploring because this option lets you completely and
nondestructively rebuild, repair, or refre$h an existing XP installation while leaving
already-installed software alone (no reinstallation needed!).
It also leaves user accounts, names, and passwords untouched and takes only a
fraction of the time a full, from-scratch reinstall does.
And unlike a traditional full reinstall, this option doesn't leave you with two copies
of XP on your hard drive.
Instead, you end up with just the original installation, but repaired, refre$hed, and
ready to go.

When you're facing the prospects of a total reformat/reinstall, stop!
Try the no-reformat reinstall technique i'm about to illustrate, and you just may get
your XP setup running again in a fraction of the time and with a fraction of the
hassle of a grand wipe-and-restore.

The no-reformat reinstall operation starts with a normal boot from an XP setup CD

Start your PC with the setup CD in a drive, and hit a key when you see the following
screen:




Boot from your XP setup CD to gain access to the no-reformat reinstall option.

If instead of booting to the CD your PC boots from the hard drive, you may need to
modify your PC's "boot order."
It's easy and only takes a minute to make the change so that the PC will check for a
bootable CD before trying to boot from the hard drive.

Once your PC starts to boot from the CD, you'll see something like what's shown in
Screen 2:
Let the CD boot proceed normally and automatically through "Setup is inspecting
your computer's hardware..." to the "Windows Setup" screen.

After a minute or two, you'll see the "Windows Setup/Setup is starting Windows"
screen, shown in Screen Three.
Don't be alarmed:
It's still just the setup process running, and nothing's been changed on your PC yet.




The "Starting Windows" screen is a bit of an overstatement; it's just the setup
process getting going.
Windows, as we normally think of it, isn't running yet, and no changes have been
made to your PC.

Soon after Screen Three, you'll be presented with the normal "Welcome to Setup"
screen, as shown in Screen Four.
The "Welcome to Setup" screen is poorly worded; the "Repair" option we want
isn't the one explicitly offered here.
In fact, the repair option we want isn't shown at all.
See the text for full detail.

The poorly worded options in Screen Four lead many users astray.
The only mention of "Repair" here is "...repair a Windows XP installation using
Recovery Console..." but that's not the no-reformat repair/reinstall we're seeking.
(The Recovery Console Repair option is useful in its own right for fixing relatively
minor problems with the operating system, and we fully explore it in the links listed
above.)

The repair option we do want--a nondestructive, no-reformat reinstall--is actually
hidden beneath the Setup option, "To set up Windows XP now, press ENTER."

So hit Enter, just as if you were setting up Windows afresh and from scratch.

The next screen, about licensing, gives no reassurances that you're on the right path
for a nondestructive repair/reinstall--in fact, it's the same screen you see when
you're setting XP up on a virgin hard drive.
But this is only the first of many screens that the Repair option will borrow from a
full-blown setup.
Press F8 to accept the licensing terms and to go on.

Next, the XP setup process will show another screen that you may recall from your
initial setup of XP. It searches for "a previous version of Microsoft Windows."
In our case, we're not replacing a previous version of Windows, but rather repairing
the very same version that's on the setup CD--but that's OK; it's just another poorly
worded screen.
Our intent is to repair the same version of Windows as is on the setup CD, but
another poorly worded screen makes it seem like you're upgrading a previous
version of Windows or installing one anew.
But don't let the bad wording alarm you; we're still on track for a nondestructive
reinstall.

Screen Seven finally shows verbiage that's not recycled from the generic XP setup,
but is specific to our Repair task.
Setup should find your damaged copy of XP and present it for repair, as shown:




At long last, Setup begins to refer to a Repair option. Here, Setup should have found
your damaged XP setup, which you can select and then press R to start the
nondestructive repair.
If your damaged copy of XP isn't highlighted in the list box, highlight it now. When
it's selected, press R to start the repair process.

The Repair process then selectively deletes system files in the \Windows folder and
subfolders and copies undamaged replacement files from the setup CD to their
proper locations.




The Repair process then works on the current setup's Registry, leaving much of it
intact and rebuilding the rest.




There's no fanfare, but this is one of the nicer parts of the Repair process: Setup
retains what it can in the current Registry so that already-installed hardware and
software will remain installed.

With the system files freshly copied and the Registry ready for rebuilding, the
system needs to reboot.
Remove the CD from the drive so that the PC will boot to the hard drive instead of
to the CD.
The first Repair reboot will take longer than normal.
Don't be alarmed. Also, don't be alarmed when Setup resumes.
Once again, it will appear that you're performing a full, from-scratch setup; there's
nothing on-screen to indicate that you're repairing an existing version of XP.
But although the setup screens are the same as what you'd see in a full install, it's
still a repair process, as will become clearer in a moment.

The first two of the Repair setup screens ask for your language preferences and
product key.
Enter these normally.
When Setup resumes, it will appear that you're performing a full, from-scratch
setup.
But don't worry--you're still indeed repairing your existing version of XP.

Many of the next few Repair screens will also be familiar.
The "installing devices" screen, for example, is identical to the one you normally see
during a full, from-scratch setup.
But Repair is actually retaining much of the current setup's configuration and so
will move through these steps faster than in a full setup.
The Repair version of the setup process skips or shortens many steps because it
already has the information it needs from the existing setup.
For example, Repair's "installing devices" and the network setup steps are both
much faster and require less user input than a new setup does.

The setup screens don't reflect the fact that a Repair proceeds much faster than a
normal, full setup. In fact, the time estimates in the setup progress bar will be way
off.
You'll be done in far less time than the progress bar predicts.
Just as with "installing devices," the network setup proceeds rapidly because Setup
can re-use many of the configuration details from the current installation.
In fact, a Repair setup takes far less time than the installation progress bar
indicates.

When this portion of the Repair is done, you'll see a "completing installation"
screen:
The "completing installation" screen means most of the heavy lifting is done, and
you're just minutes away from finishing the repair operation.

Setup then reboots your PC again, and this reboot will also take longer than usual.
This is normal.

With the bulk of the repair work done, your PC needs to reboot once more and will
do so automatically.
The reboot will take a bit longer than a standard boot, but this is normal.
After the reboot, you'll be brought to an abbreviated version of the "Welcome To
Windows" setup pages.

You'll be asked if you want to register and--depending on how badly hosed the
previous installation was--you may or may not be asked to reactivate the copy of
Windows.
Next, the setup software handles the final networking details and then offers a
"thank you" screen.
In most cases, the system will now reboot for a final time.
The Repair is done. It's a normal boot, bringing you to the normal choices for login.

With a final, fully normal reboot, you're done.
Your copy of XP should be as good as new, but with all your previously installed
hardware, software, and user configuration data undamaged!


If all has gone as planned, you'll find all the user accounts and passwords intact, all
the hardware devices set up as before, and all the previously installed software still
installed and configured.
In fact, if all has gone as planned, the only significant change will be that whatever
problem your copy of XP was previously experiencing will now be gone!

You now have a range of repair tools at your disposal, ranging from simple on-the-
fly fixes such as Registry cleaning and safe Mode fixes to Recovery Console fixes,
and, now, a nondestructive, no-reformat repair/rebuild option.

With this information, you should almost never have to face a dreaded start-over-
from-scratch reformat/reinstall of XP!

So, now getting hands dirty!!

Q: How hard is it to install Windows 7 as a dual boot? At present, you might be

                              on your machine.

            Lets discuss this in point, so that you can remember it well.
1. First and Foremost, you need Windows Seven to be downloaded/already
downloaded/ bought.

2. OK, so now you have the file. What next?? You need to download one more file if
You wish to install Windows Seven OS without the need to write the ISO file on a
DVD and perform a normal installation.
You need to download DAEMON Tools/magisiso/ultra iso/poweriso to burn DVD

3. Backup all important files

4.Now, we are ready to install the OS

5. You need an empty drive with at least 5-9 GB to install Windows Seven
effortlessly. So, create an empty drive and label it appropriately so that you can
remember which drive is that at the time of the installation.
Step 6. So, install the DAEMON tool /power iso/ultra iso now and you can see it in
the System Tray like this. now and you can see it in the System Tray like this.



It’s the one on the First Line First Item. Looks like a bolt of light from Heaven,
doesn’t it?


Step 7. Now, right click on it and choose Virtual CD/DVD-ROM to enter into
multitude of options to load the Windows Seven ISO file that you have downloaded.
Choose the file wherever it is and the DAEMON tools application launches the
installation file which asks you to Install Windows Seven on your machine.
        8. Click on the install button and the setup starts and asks you the following screens
        under which I have mentioned what to do. Follow these steps if you wish to install
        Windows Seven on an empty drive and place it in the dual boot so that you can
        choose to enter your previous installation of Windows XP or Windows Vista and
        Windows Seven.


        9. Here goes the first boring screen which states by itself what it’s doing. Based on
        your PC speed you may see it for longer time.
This image has been resized. Click this bar to view the full image. The original image is sized 1149x803.
        10.You can click on the image below to view what it says. But, I would advice you to
        choose the Second option which says “Do not get latest updates for Installation”.
This image has been resized. Click this bar to view the full image. The original image is sized 1152x864.
        11. And here comes the obvious part, the Disclaimer and Privacy Statement yada-
        yada.
This image has been resized. Click this bar to view the full image. The original image is sized 1152x864.
        12. Now, choose which kind of installation you need. would advice you to choose the
        Custom(advanced) option as we are installing the OS on an empty drive to enable
        the dual boot. Or if not then option 1

This image has been resized. Click this bar to view the full image. The original image is sized 1152x864.
        13. Now, where do you want to install Windows Seven? If you remember, we have
        labeled the 5 GB drive, haven’t we?
This image has been resized. Click this bar to view the full image. The original image is sized 1152x864.
        14. The Setup starts and the Copying Files starts with a pace.
This image has been resized. Click this bar to view the full image. The original image is sized 1152x864.
        15. The setup continues as the regular Windows XP and Windows Vista does
        pleasantly. At last you would get a notification that Installation has completed and
        your Video Performance would be monitored to check for the optimal performance
        and at last, you would get this.
This image has been resized. Click this bar to view the full image. The original image is sized 1024x768.
No, Firefox would not arrive as default with Windows Seven. Download it.

16. Now, lets check the resource Monitor feature in Windows Seven. It’s nothing but
a fancy name for Task Manager.
This image has been resized. Click this bar to view the full image. The original image is sized 1024x768.
        What a fancy screen, isnt it? These features could have been included in Windows
        XP itself. But, Microsoft saved it for future versions like Windows Seven.




        17. Now to the System’s Properties.
This image has been resized. Click this bar to view the full image. The original image is sized 1024x768.




        18. There are multitude of features which you would think are cool to look at, but
        performance wise, they do not add much to the user’s browsing experience. One
        such feature is this.
Ok, now you might have got the knowledge over how to install and test Windows
Seven Operating System on your machine.


Do let know if You had any doubts and if you face some problems with the
installation. We do not state that we are experts in the field, but we can troubleshoot
and increase our knowledge base too.

How To Make Notepad Write On Its Own




                                         A Notepad
that writes on it own is for sure a very weird thing but very funny in the same time. And
if you change the icon
of the file you create with the Notepad's, and replace the Notepad icon from your friend's
computer with this file for sure you will create a great prank.

1. Open Notepad.

2. Copy this script in Notepad:

PHP Code:
set wshshell = wscript.CreateObject("wscript.shell")
wshshell.run "Notepad"
wscript.sleep 2000
wshshell.AppActivate "Notepad"
WshShell.SendKeys "H"
WScript.Sleep 500
WshShell.SendKeys "ell"
WScript.Sleep 500
WshShell.SendKeys "o "



The little program will make your Notepad type "Hello". You can always make your
custom message by replacing the letters between the " " signs with the ones you want.

You can add more lines like the following ones for more letters:

WScript.Sleep 500
WshShell.SendKeys "insert here your letter of group of letters "
3. Now save the file. Go to File->Save as. Type the name of the file with the extension
.vbs. For example if you want to choose the name Notepad, type Notepad.vbs. Also
be sure that File type is All files not Text file!

4. When you doubleclick on it, Notepad will start typing letters.


Enjoy!!
