my windows 7 is on a work laptop. It connects at work through a domain instead workgroup or homegroup at least this is my interpretation of a domain. AT home I run xp pro and I have tried to setup a network with bad results. If I install a dual boot with windows 7 at home, I will then be able to use the homegroup which I have heard is much easier. My question is will the domain setup through work be a problem here? I am specifically thinking about if I have to change the laptops computer name. Any ideas? Thanks!




hey, now i know that windows 7 is supposed to have some super-duper driver detection, but i am have a really hard time trying to find a driver for my marvell top dog wireless card.
maybe i am really missing something or maybe there isnt one yet
i tried installing the vista version, but it didnt work

im dual booting vista/windows 7 so connection isnt a problem, but it would be cool if i could run windows7 independently
231gb hard drive: 145gb vista, 39gb windows7, 7gb recovery for vista, and 40 unallocated

My computer has two Western Digital Caviar Black WD5001AALS 500GB hard drives configured in Raid 0. As the ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 motherboard begins to POST both hard drives are shown on the POST screen but one of the two hard drives is in red letters with the message "Error Occurred (0)". Windows 7 has on one occasion had trouble booting but otherwise seems to boot normally. I knew just enough to configure the BIOS in Raid 0 and to install Windows 7. The above Error Message is seen with each boot since it started three days ago.

I made a physical inspection of the hard drives and their power and SATA connections. All connections were secure.

Can someone give advice and assistance in how run down a problem in Raid 0 without screwing up the Windows7 OS and its files.




I've been having a problem which seems to be quite common among many Windows 7 users.

I'm currently running Windows 7 Ultimate and it's been fine for about 3 weeks. 3 days ago, it started shutting down on me randomly when i'm playing games. No BSODs, no warnings, nothing. It's as though the power got turned on and off.

I tried disabling automatic restart in the control panel. Again, it restarted randomly with no BSOD. And again I tried disabling it by pressing F8 during the boot. Again it didn't work.

The crashes are bothering me and I have absolutely no idea what went wrong since I did not get to see any BSOD and all event viewer tells me is Kernel Power, Unexpected shutdown. With no bugcheck.

I'm wondering if anyone can help me here. I did not install any new drivers, softwares or hardware prior to the first crash which happened out of nowhere.

*I've come to notice that this happens whenever i've tried running stuffs that requires my VGA card to work. For e.g, encoding a video, running a game or even as simple as alt tabbing.

Cheers,
Xanthos




I've been searching for an answer to this but all I find is people in a different situation. My laptop had a sudden BSOD last night, I restarted and got the failed to start message saying the file "winload.exe" was the problem. I figured i'd just reformat instead of troubleshoot. I pulled the drive out and hooked it up to my other PC to back it up, put it back in and started it up with a Win 7 install disc inside. It did the usual "Windows is loading file" once it finished it went straight back to the same screen. Finding that odd, I decided I'd just force a reformat thinking it was a nasty virus (this is where i think ive messed up). I put it in my desktop and hit format on the drive. Put it back in the laptop and STILL get the same message. Baffled by how it could still be looking for a file that shouldnt exist on the drive anymore I thought "maybe my drive is bad?" so I bought a new one, same thing. I have NO idea where to go from here. I've tried XP, Vista and 7 installs but none pass the initial file load point. How can I repair this when the drive is empty and formatted as a new drive? I can only get it to give me different start up options (safe mode, safe mode networking etc) when I use the Vista SP2 disc (which is what I think was originally installed) but NONE of those options work they all instantly return to the same screen. I'm not a total noob, I build PCs and even do some PC repair on the side but i've never seen this problem. From what I'm reading online no one has formatted the disk and still had the same problem. Does the motherboard think an OS is still installed or something?




Okay everyone here seems to be my problem.

I attempted to reboot my pc with windows 7 build 7068 a few weeks ago and i recieved the following error when booting from cd drive : Bootmgr image is corupt. I have done alittle research today and I cant seem to findsomething that will help me. It will not let me get anywhere with the installation or repair it just immediantly goes to bootmgr img is corupt. I thought it was my hdd so i sent it into Western digital and they sent me a new one. Sure enough its doing the exact same thing. I even tried to boot my pc with my old windows xp cd that came with my computer. A different error screen comes up but it still wont let me load windows on my pc.

I called the company i bought my pc from and sat on technical support for over an hour. Unplugging ram sticks, switching my gfx cards around. changing dvd rw drives. messing with bios. we couldnt figure it out at all. So im hoping the windows 7 community can help me.

Do you think linux would be able to boot my pc? or is that out of the question.




Hey guys!

I've been looking all over the internet for some help on this problem of mine without any real luck, so I'm hoping someone here can help me out.

My problem is that sometimes when I start up my computer (from both hibernation and shutdown), windows freezes(sort of) on startup. It will start up after quite some time and everything seem to be running in slow-motion. I can move the pointer and perform actions in 1-2 sec intervals with about 5-6 seconds between them.

When starting up in safe-mode it will freeze totally upon loading the file CLASSPNP.SYS.

At first I was concerned about some hardware malfunction, but since everything works fine on Ubuntu (dual-boot) I assume this is a software error.

The only fix I've been able to apply is using system restore, but this may have to be done several times for the problem to disappear and takes forever since the computer is running in "slow-motion".

Also sometimes when i leave the computer off for a day or two (or just use Ubuntu instead) it will boot up win7 just fine.

Since the problem occurs quite randomly and without any warnings it's been quite hard to debug/gather information on the system while crashing, but here is what I have been able to figure out so far:

* While problem occurs, both cpu cores are working at 95-99%. Processes(random ones) take turns on using 99%.
* Screen will glitch heavily and message will appear in tray-bubble: "windows nvidia kernel mode driver stopped responding".

Things i have tried:

* Installing newest Nvidia graphics driver.
* Installing older Nvidia graphics drivers.
* Full format and fresh install of windows7.

In the reliability monitor i was able to gather this information:

* Problem: Windows failed to start because of missing system files
Description: A recent driver installation or upgrade might have prevented Windows from starting.

* Problem: Video hardware error
Description
A problem with your video hardware caused Windows to stop working correctly.

"Bootmgr is missing".
I compressed my entire C drive. When I rebooted I got the error "Bootmgr is compressed"

I don't have a optical drive, so I made a bootable USB drive using YUMI 0.2.3 and added the windows 7 recovery ISO. The USB drive boots and I can enter the recovery console, etc.

It couldn't auto-repair the problem so I tried enterinng the following in the command prompt code:

c:
expand bootmgr temp
attrib bootmgr s r h
del bootmgr
ren temp bootmgr
attrib bootmgr a +s +h +r

I guess "ren" didn't work or something, because now the error is "Bootmgr is MISSING".

Still, the recovery disk cannot auto-repair.

i tried entering the following in the command prompt (from bootable USB):
bootrec /fixboot

It said the operation has completed successfully. I took the USB drive out and rebooted. bootmgr is still missing.

I also tried:
bootrec /rebuildbcd

Total identified windows installations: 1
Add installation to boot list? yesnoall

I selected yes, it said "The requested system device cannot be found".

On that note, I am stuck. How can I restore bootmgr?




I Don't know if this is a hardware problem or not but I hope you guys can help me solve this.

Recently I re installed Windows 7 on a new SSD I bought(OCZ Vertex 3 120gb) and the problem I'm having is that sometimes everything freezes except the mouse, I can move it around but I can't click anything. I get no response from keyboard input. I get no bluescreen or anything.
What happens next is that after I reboot my computer after the crash it can't boot into Windows since it cant find any of my hard drives so it tries to boot from a CD instead. I turn off my computer, leave it off for about 10 seconds and it successfully boots into Windows again. This has happened 4 times since I installed Windows on the SSD one week ago.

Hello,
I don't even know where should I start because I'm mad desperate here....

Anyways, I had this really annoying aero lag problem on my computer, beside basic animation lagging from minimize and maximize window, the main problems with that lag are music/video stutters while playing, games I run act slow-motion (not lag, just slow-motion like bullet time) and I have this weird white lines flashing on booting screen.

I did possibly everything I could to fix this problem, turning aero off (Still doesn't work because the music still stutter and other main problems still exist) countless restarting (this lag sometime will disappear at a certain time of restart, but mostly won't.) "Magnifier fix", Driver check, Virus scan (No virus), even format and reinstall.

This problem is a pain to deal with because It completely destroy the whole experience. =( So I'm asking any experienced pros in here for fixes and advices, anything that helps would be very much appreciated.

Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit with SP1 installed

I am having a problem with 10's to 100's of blue dots on my screen. I can place a video feed or another computer on the monitor with no blue pixels. Additionally, the screen gets "fuzzy" in places. It is in spots, not a line completely accross the screen. It get worse at time and better at others. I can't seem to track why. Any thoughts would be appreciated. I assume it is due drivers not being mature, but I don't know.

I can reduce the issue by removing SLI, but it still exists. The reason I have two video cards is to run them in SLI. I love gaming and video editing for fun. I really want to be able to use the 64-bit version to allow it to recognize more ram.

I have an Acer AX3400G-U4802 that froze during the Windows Update. It wouldn't boot after that. It kept showing a screen telling me to boot again (or something like that, I can't really remember, I'm sorry if this causes trouble with identifying the problem). I purchased a Windows 7 disc to format it. After the install of Windows 7, it seemed to run fine. I had the computer on over night because I fell asleep watching some YouTube Videos. The next morning, it began freezing up. It would come back after a couple minutes then freeze again. I restarted it several times but it still did it again. I left it alone for awhile because I had errands to run. When I came back the computer was doing the Windows Updates again. This time it did not freeze and they all installed fine. However the freezing was still there. I originally thought the freezing was due to Firefox and Adobe Flash Player not getting along. Apparently that wasn't it as I restarted again and it wouldn't boot. After some frustrating time passed, I decided to attempt to format again but it wouldn't boot the disc. I swapped out the hard drives, I have 3 all together varying in size, and the same thing happened with all three. My main question is, could the DVD rom be the cause of this, as I wasn't able to load the disc? And could the DVD rom going out be the cause of the freezing as well?

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.




maybe a few weeks back my laptop with windows 7 hung up on boot, so I just powered it off and after the start up recovery ran (finding no problems) it booted. No more boot problems until today, it booted pass the window logo to the black screen just before the blue screen login, but just sat there (when i moved the mouse the black screen dimmed darker for some reason.) So I used the power button to shut down, started in startup recovery, it tried to fix (about 2 hours) and restarted itself and still hung up.

Searched online on my old xp and found many people have had this problem. I tried to restore system to older date, it never restored. I did it in safe mode and after it tried to restart it still hing up.

In advance start up options I tried last known good config, still hung on boot.

Finally I tried "Disable Driver Signature Enforcement " and it finally booted normally and I'm using it now. Uninstalled some recent installed programs, running a virus scan. But I haven't shut down yet to see if it will boot back up.

What should I do now? And is there a good free registry checker or something I should use?

I appreciate all help, thank you so much.

Okay, So it all started with m computer giving me this:

Windows failed to start. A recent hardware of software change might be the cause. To fix the problem:

1.Insert your Windows installation disc and restart the computer.
2.Choose your language settings, and then click "Next".
3.Click "Repair your computer."

If you do not have this disc, contact your system administrator or computer manufacturer for assistance.

File: BootBCD

Status: 0x000000f

Info: The boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible.

It gives me this screen all the time,
Even by trying to enter Safe Mode (F8) and System Recovery. (F10)

My Computer is currently running Windows 7 Home Premium.

So I created a Windows 7 Repair Disk on my Brother work Laptop,
(His Laptop is Windows 7 Professional, Mine is Home Premium)

So I Insert and Boot Disc from the disc,
It takes me to System Recovery Options.

Also, I keep getting this pop up every time I try to do something.
http://i.imgur.com/23mFb.jpg

After I pick my language and Keyboard input method, It starts scanning,
It soon gives me a pop up saying that Windows found problems.
I click in, "View Details" and shows me this:
http://i.imgur.com/BM0yS.jpg

I click on "Restart and Repair"
But a pop up comes up saying, "Failed to save startup options"

After all that it takes me the
"Choose a Recovery Tool option"
For some reason it doesn't show My System Image backup points,
What I also found that at the top it says,
"Operating System: Unknown on (Unknown) Local Disk"
Does this mean my computer doesn't have an OS anymore?

I ran a Startup Repair and of cause it couldn't do anything,
All it said is that it can't automatically fix the problem.

Clicked on "Show Problem Details" and gave me this:
http://i.imgur.com/M8boW.jpg

I did a little research beforehand,
It said that one of the causes might be of the HD being disconnected or something.

But on the same picture as shown above. ^^^
I scrolled down and saw this link,
And a Notepad popped up
I clicked File > Save.

And it opened up as if I was on my desktop actually saving something.
I saw all my files.
And saw that my HD was still working.
http://i.imgur.com/hYUEA.jpg

I even plugged my USB, and managed to copy and paste my files to my USB in the "Save As" box.
So I know that my HD isn't affected.

So all I need to know how to fix this...
The only thing I can come up with is that for some odd reason that the OS deleted itself?

Sorry for all the Pictures,
Just trying to provide as much clarification as possible..

Hi all
I've followed the tutorial on creating a bootable install USB for Windows 7 -- works great

However there is a very slight problem -- there's no prompt for example "Press Any Key to boot from the CD".
The prompt is actually very useful as during an install your computer might re-boot several times. This means that you can't perform an "Unattended" install as you either need to reset the Bios after the ist boot or pull out the USB stick whilst booting and insert it back again during the boot process -- for example while the boot splash screen is being displayed.

Anyway to add a "Text prompt" which if a key is not pressed then the computer won't continue the boot from that device but will choose the hard disk (like the W7 install DVD).

Other than that the tutorial is great -- installing W7 from a bootable USB -- less than 15 mins.

Cheers
jimbo




Basically, I know that this .sys file is not in the folders it it was in. I ws was, because I think it came from nVidia's Pureideo Decoder. I had installed it to my new install of Windows 7 Pro x64. I then uninstalled it to "fix" a different problem (thepfc.sys_ errors.

My question is, I have been looking around a awful lot foreither the file to put into the expected folder or delete a registry key somewhere. I am not sure what I could/Should do? I also would like to know if Windows 7 Pro x64 even needs this software? I just read that the x64 Vista didn't need it in a thread elsewhere (back in 2006, I think).

If it be the case that I do not need Pureideo for this OS and I can get the MPEG2/4 and stuff via Windows MEdia Player 8, or iTunes, then I would just need to find the right key(s) and/or Data to expunge.

Here is the Event Viewers log entry:

Any advice one could render, will be much appreciated.

Can any help resolve the following drive problem I have :-

After installing windows 7, I had the following 2 drive issues:

1. My original C: drive , hence boot, the drive did not appear on explorer. I have since resolved the problem by assigning a drive letter to it other then c: drive.

2. My H: drive is visible on explorer but the drive is not accessible. the message given when accessing the drive is: H: is not accessible. Access is denied. Using computer management, the drive indicated it is Healthy and only that. All my drives are NTFS, and the only difference I can spot is that all but my H drive are of type basic, where as the H: drive type is dynamic.

Is there any way that I can access my H drive?

Thanks,
D




I have win 7 Beta installed on my PC. The problem I am having with it is when I press the power button on my PC about 10 seconds into it, I see a blank screen with the cursor blinking for about 3 minutes before I see starting windows screen and then it will take less than another minute until I get to my desktop.

What would be causing this 3 minute pause before reaching the windows starting screen. I do not have a printer or any USB device hooked up to this PC.

There was this issue Under "other devices" there is 2 entries of "IPMI interfaces" and "PCI serial Port" with yellow ! point next to them. But I found this

Interface IPMI ? - Vista Forums

So I disabled both of them. However, I am still having the same issue with my PC. My PC is 32BIT. Any other ideas on what could be causing this issue? I appreciate your help.

thanks

Can I please get some help with this issue.

thx
