  • 1. Keyboard killed after removing Logitech Setpoint
    I uninstalled Setpoint, using the normal Add/Remove software process, from my HP zv5000z laptop (AMD-64, WinXP Pro Sp2) and on Windows restart at the login screen the keyboard does not work and I cannot enter my password. This is the built-in keyboard, not an external keyboard (either USB or PS2). The mouse (Logitech wireless optical) still works, as does the Alps keypad. I uninstalled Setpoint because it seemed to kill the button setting to get a double-click from pressing the scroll wheel, and I wanted to get back to an earlier, simpler Mouseware that worked. Now I want to know if there's any way I can get my keyboard back without having to re-install XP. Needless to say, I sure won't be installing Setpoint again. I have the OEM XP Pro install CD, but it is Sp1. My other computer (this old Dell Inspiron) does not have a CD burner so I cannot use it to burn a slipstreamed Sp2 install CD. Any suggestions on a way to repair this situation? -- Steve

  • 4. Cannot connect to Workgroup
    When i type \\computername in my workgroup it tries to log on to remote machine with guest account and asks for password. I have set password and still wont connect. Also when i try to add printer that is connected to remote PC it says access is denied. Both PC's are XP pro. Why cant i add printer or see other pc's in my workgroup without a password that dosen't even work?
  • 5. Mapped Network Drive not detected
    I have a 3 PC network. Each PC has other PCs' drives as mapped network drives. On one computer I have a batch file, a basic DOS style file that copies specific files across the network from one particular computer to this one. After I've started the computer I run the batch file. However, it says that it can't find the network drive. I open Windows Explorer. I see the mapped drive and I navigate to it. I run the batch file again. This time it sees it. Why would Windows not allow the batch file to "see" the network drive until after I've opened it in Explorer? -- Reality is for people who lack imagination.

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.
now I can't reboot the system, it always write the CONTROL IS DONE.

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!
