  • 1. fatal error in WinXP repair
    After a PC crash, I restored a backup from external hard drive. Upon restarting Windows, I immediately got errors, so I tried repairing WinXP. It gets through to the restart, and I get the "cannot find 'asms'" error (as I've seen on several threads here). I changed the path to C:\i386\ and it found it ok. But now it gets stuck on "The GLOBALROOT\DEVICE\CDROM0\NT5INF.CAT catalog file could not be found..." I tried copying this file from another laptop onto a CD, but it does not recognize it. I've read a few suggestions about slipstreaming SP2, but the recovery CD I've repaired from is WinXP Pro including SP2 - Shouldn't everything already be on there? Suggestions?
  • 2. whether any application has been installed?
    Is there a way to determine whether any application has been installed on PC within given time period even if program has not left traces of itself? Or whether some registry changes has been done within this time frame (as result of running the executable). (on win xp home).

  • 5. Power Schemes and 'Out of Range' monitor message
    Hoping someone has a bright idea on this one. The school has recently updated the computers in one of its suites with HP DC5800 SFF desktops (running XP SP3) with existing 15" Di-Fusion LCD monitors. In Control Panel -> Power Options -> Power Schemes, the 'Turn off monitor' option is set to 20 minutes. When the monitor has been switched off after that time and the mouse is moved or a key is pressed, the monitor displays the message "Attention. Input signal is out of range. Please change signal timing." The only way to restore the display is either disconnect and reconnect the power cable on the monitor or reboot the computer. But here's the problem. I've tried the computer with other LCD monitors and they restore the display correctly. I've tried the monitor with other computers and the display is restored correctly. So where is the problem between the Di-Fusion monitor and the HP DC5800? I have tried the following with no success: 1. Installing the latest graphics drivers (Intel Q33 Express Integrated) 2. Updating to the latest BIOS (and cannot find any BIOS settings that may be relevant) 3. Rolling back from XP SP3 to SP2 Many thanks in anticipation

I need to stop scandisk from starting???

I selected scandisk to scan each of my partitions while I was in Explore.  
Windows says it can only do it when it restarts so I shut down and let it 
restart.  Now the scandisk starts on the last partition first and when it 
gets to the next one it crashes and restarts the computer.  The whole thing 
starts all over again and keeps rebooting.  I need to stop this loop.  I can 
get access to the hard drive files using another windows install so can 
someone tell me what file to delete to kill the scandisk request???   I am 
using Windows XP Pro on my system. There must be a way to just kill the 
scandisk request before the Windows startup.

You might try putting your computer in Safe Mode and then selecting "Last 
Known Good Configuration" and see if this will get you out of the loop that 
you are in .Go to  http://www.**--****.com/

I had to do a deep scandisk con WIN XP HOME and it asked for next time

It made the controls and at the end, it wrote that everything was OK.

shutdown the DEEP CONTROL in SCANDISK, but the system can only boot, and
start again the HDD CONTROL.

You must schedule the task under the Task Scheduler
and use an account that has sufficient privileges to do
the job. Try this in order to find out what's going on:

@echo off
echo %date% %time:~0:5% User=%UserName% Path=%path% > c:\test.log
net stop "Some Service" 1>>c:\test.log 2>c:\test.err

Now have a look at the two log files and all will become clear!
