  • 1. Connect window
    On my old system, I was able to click on an icon on my desktop to get the dial into the internet Connection box to come up. My new XP system does nothing when I click on my desktop icon. Instead it has a Network Connections icon on the Start taskbar and I must first click on that. Then a Network Connections window comes up where I click on the Connect button. How do I get rid of the Network Connections window so that all I have to do is click on the Connect icon that is sitting on my desktop. Thank you.
  • 2. Change Hard Drive & Optical Drive Letters
    I'd like to change my Hard Drive Letters to: (C) Hard Drive (D) Hard Drive (E) Hard Drive (F) DVD-RW (G) DVD-RW Presently my HDs bear letters and numbers ie Hard Drive 1 (C:) Hard Drive 2 (F:) Hard Drive 3 (G:) DVD-RW Drive (D:) DVD-RW Drive (E:) I find the present order quite annoying. Pls, where in the registry can I make the changes? Does the lettes Have to be shown as (C:) or can the colon be omitted? I'd welcome any suggestions. Thx
  • 3. Dynamic Disk Unreadable - recover ur data from dynamic disk
    guys.. the only 2 ways arround dynamic volumes are one of these: use File Scavanger 3 (available in trial + crack) or any other data recovery software, or 2nd: install win xp pro on that disk and u will be able to access your data. the thing is.. everthing's there it's just that we can't see it. so any file recovery program will be able to copy the data clean and clear, without any loss, and move it to another partition or disk u have. good luck!
  • 4. build new PC....been told I need another XP disk???
    Hi there. I have currently a slightly old home built PC built around a Gigabyte motherboard and a full version of XP home. I have had to format several times already due to various problems. But now I want a new faster PC. Been to a local computer shop and they have told me I cant put on my version of XP, I need to buy another disk from them and put that on, because it makes a note to the motherboard???? Does this sound correct. It seems to me that this is way out of order. Thanks George
  • 5. Computer freezes for no reason
    I have a custom made system that I've used for 3 or so years. I replaced the master drive (40GB) w/a Seagate 120GB drive as master, 40GB as slave. Since I've done this, Windows XP Pro SP2 seems to freeze for no reason. I've run all the diagnostics I can think off, even when ran the Seagate tools. There don't appear to be any problems with any of my stuff. I will lock up/freeze up when my daughter is only using AIM or just typing a school paper. I'm not very computer literate, but I looked in System Info and their were no conflicts. I really would like to find out what the problem is and get it fixed for good. I run Norton Antivirus 2006 and it finds no spyware/malware/viruses.

I need to stop scandisk from starting???

Postby R2lsYW4 » Fri, 02 Jun 2006 05:46:02 GMT

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
reboot, it will do the function.

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.

someone can help me please?

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!
