Dvd Hangs After Loading Files And Starting Windows

Install of windows 7 h. P from dvd hangs after "loading files" and "starting windows"; just have mouse icon on black screen. I am trying to do a clean install of win7 home premium off of 32bit dvd.
Pc is 1gb ram athlon 1700xp zotac nvidia 6200 agp graphics card on a pcchips m810l mb with a 20gb primary hard drive 3gb secondary and lg dvdrom drive. My current operating system is win2k which is why i need to do a clean install from dvd as you cannot run setup from win2k.

First problem was "cannot boot from cd code 5" which i overcame by using "ultimateboot cd" which then allows win7 dvd to load. Now the problem is hang/stall. Win 7 sequence (all on black background) is "loading files" then "windows starting" with the 4 colours to make the flag then check of hard disk then nothing with large mouse icon in the middle of the screen. Cant move mouse and no keys work; left for an hour and no joy, just in case its slow.

I am running graphics through the vga adaptor and also have disabled floppy drive which i have seen as solutions to this elsewhere. Have unplugged all usb devices. Harddisk currently has win2k on it which i expect to reformat when i get that far. Do i need to format it primary disk so its empty first? Secondary disk has all my saved data on it to copy back later (also on flash drive; belt n braces.

Windows Stuck At Loading Files, Can't Run Repair

Ever since i got a power outage friday my pc has been stuck at loading files, so today i managed to get my hands on the windows installation dvd, the problem is that i simply can't run the repair, not even using the dvd, directly through windows it simply gets stuck on loading files, no mater what choice i select on the boot manager, and through the dvd it gives me an kernell dll missing error, again no mater what choice i select on the manager it is the same error.

Error: file-system check failed, error: 126 clusters are referenced multiple times. Ntfs is inconsistent. Run chkdsk /f on windows then reboot it twice, the usage of the /f parameter is very important! No modification was, and will be made to ntfs by this software until it gets repaired. But, i obviously can't run the chkdsk /f since i can't get on windows. Seems the problem is related to the sudden power outage, but i don't understand why even the dvd is having problems booting up.

Language Bar Changes Itself

The language bar randomly changes the language from us english to chinese for no particular reason, it also changes the keyboard input from us to multilingual canada, (which isn't that bad, you just lose out on most of your punctuation) has anyone else encountered this problem, i can change it back, it's just annoying when your typing and then you look at the screen and somewhere halfway through it you see that the language changed without any intention.

I can change it back but every couple days on the 3 computers i have purchased win7 for are having this issue, so i know it's not a hardware issue.

Address Bar Searches Ask.com Instead Of Going To Site

Sometimes when i type in an address to my address in ie 7 or ie 8 i end up at ask.com. This is especially weird since i have disabled all search engines i am not interested from the manage add-ons window and it bothers me more than ask.com wasn't there to remove and yet it's there in my address bar. In ie 8 the new link system show ask.com at the bottom of the list just begging to clicked on. I keep my virus checker and microsoft's windows defender up to date and neither has picked up any thing to suggest this is a virus or trojan.

Bing Bar Install Issue

I cannot install the bing bar on my windows 7 pc. The install completes halfway and then closes with no error or finish installed message. I open ie8 and it's not there. It is listed in add/remove programs though. So i have tried uninstalling and reinstalling and a clean boot install. Scan for spyware/virus, system is cleaned. Also, deteled windows temp folder, cleared cache, cookies, disable add-ons. I can install the windows live toolbar successfully. Other programs install fine as well.

Any ideas?

Bing Bar Has Encountered An Error

Error code 400 then error code 1000 then just the "bing bar has encountered an error. Please close all browse". For at least the past three weeks i have been getting a message every time i open ie8 in windows 7 x64-bit.initially it said that the bing bar had encountered an error and listed error code 400. Then later that changed to error code 100, and now it just says that "the bing bar has encountered an error. Please close all browse" with only the help circle to the right.

It no longer shows the temperature either. I have written many times and have yet to get an answer or any suggestion as to how to correct the situation. The bing search page still opens normally and performs searches as it should. I'm getting very tired of this and want it to be corrected. I have tried closing the browser many times as well as every night.

Delete History In Address Bar

I have a sony vaio. It has vista home. I have an item (site)  with accompanying info (images). That seems to be embedded in the history at the address bar. When i try to delete them it is still there. I have tried through control panel, safety and also the tools button. All these methods work to delete all the other history but this one site and its accompanying images. I'm not real knowledgeable with computer but i'm trying. I think i have read in forum of similar (i think?) Problem. Can someone walk me through solving this?

Turn Off Search In Address Bar

I recently downloaded the latest windows update, which in turn updates internet explorer to 8. What i absolutely loved about ie is that i could just type something in the address field (without adding ".com") and it would automatically pull up the website. Saved me a lot of time and loved the functionality of it. Now that it's been updated, i can't do that anymore. Ie8 automatically pulls up google search instead of just loading the page. Is there any way to turn this feature off? It slows my work down. And little minutes each time tends to add up.

Scroll Bar On Photo Viewer

How do you enable/show the scroll bar on the windows photo viewer? I am using two thinkpad t400, one running vista and the other is 7. On the vista machine, when i open up a large photo, the scroll bar will appear so i can go to the top or bottom quickly. On 7, that scroll bar disappeared. Is there a patch i can apply to get it back? It seems it is not in the option or settings. This is really painful because i have to deal with large pictures. And i've been going back to the vista even if i hate it so much.

Delete Favorites Bar Folder

How do i delete the favorites bar folder? I'm trying to delete the 'favorites bar' folder from my bookmarks list in internet explorer 8, as it is redundant. I do not currently, and will never use it, and i also do not want it there. However, every time i delete it, it comes back a few minutes later. I've disabled the favorites bar via group policy editor, and i've tried a suggestion i found of setting the corresponding folder to hidden via windows explorer, then deleting the folder from my bookmarks, but it reappears a few minutes later. Is there any way of getting rid of this folder permanently?

Bar On Desktop For Easy Access To Email, Im

Just got a new laptop with w7 today, and i am loving it. There's one thing i was wondering if someone can help me find, though.

On one of the display computers at a store i visited, there was a bar at the top of the desktop with buttons for easy access to mail and im (and, i believe, a couple of other programs, but i can't remember which). It was not the taskbar just moved to the top - looked completely different. I thought it might be a gadget or something, but i can't seem to find it listed anywhere.

Can anyone help me figure out what this is and how i might get it on my computer? I know that i could just pin the messenger buttons to the taskbar, but i'm still trying to figure out what all i want to put there, so as to not let it get too cluttered.

Explorer And Browsers Windows Scroll Bar Issue

All windows programmes (such as browsers firefox, chrome, explorer) force the scroll bar to the bottom of the page and will not allow you to scroll back up. Even re-booting the machine several times does not immediately resolve the problem. All windows programmes force the scroll bar to the bottom of the page and will not allow you to scroll back up.

Even re-booting the machine several times does not immediately help. Environment using win 7 on a laptop (acer), with usb mouse. When the mouse is not used (i.e. Tracker pad is used) there seems to be a number of system freezes. We did not get these problems prior to windows 7 upgrade. The lap top is relatively new with 4gb ram.

Can't Do Web Searches From Search Bar On Browser

Can't do web searches from any search bar on any browser-"ie cannot display the web page" after cleaning my computer of the cryptor virus, internet explorer 8, mozilla firefox, and safari web browsers started showing the "internet explorer cannot display the web page" error message. I can surf the net as long as i use the address bar to manually enter a site's web address or access web pages from favorites, but when i attempt to do a web search from any search bar on any web page, the browsers cannot load the page. I'm sure some setting is incorrectly checked and just don't know what to look at to remedy the problem.

* Iis feature requirement
 
* Microsoft internet information services (iis) is either not installed or is disabled. Iis is required by some sql server features. Without iis, some sql server features will not be available for installation. To install all sql server features, install iis from add or remove programs in control panel or enable the iis service through the control panel if it is already installed, and then run sql server setup again.

Ce Loading Os Image

I have a netbook that unfortunately i do not have the box anymore so i am not sure of the brand it doesn't say anything on it, but there is serial numbers and other numbers on but the problem is it is stuck. When we turn it on we get the screen that says microsoft windows ce and below that it says loading os image. And it won't go any further. I have tried pushing the reset button on the bottom and tried taking off the batter and none of them will work so i was hoping for a patch or something that i could download to a flash drive or sd card that would fix it, or maybe even a sequence of buttons that would reset it.

Problem Loading

I am having a problem with my dell inspiron 1470 laptop, windows 7, 4 gb ram, 64 bit operating system, bought 5 months ago.

It's had a problem for months and it happens just about every other time i try to start the machine, in that at start up, it appears that the windows "loader"freezes at the "multi-colored square "windows logo. It goes nowhere, so i turn it off and start it again and get a message on a black screen, (i think its a dos) that says windows failed to shut down properly, and they search for a fix and suggest a system restore, i do it and windows starts up ok.

Obviously, this is not an acceptable way to start up my computer. Does anybody have an idea or suggestion to help solve this problem?

Monitor Will Just Go Blank

I have an issue where my monitor will just go blank. The computer is running but no display. My first thought was that this is a display adapter/video driver issue but i not longer think so. Let me explain. My set up is a hp m9040n running windows 7 ultimate x64. I have a nvidia 9600 gso card that is less than 6 months old and use a samsung syncmaster t240 monitor.

This first started happening about one month ago right after i upgraded my video card driver to the latest version. I would be away from the computer for awhile and when i came back no amount of mouse shaking would bring the screen on. At that point a hard shut down and boot up would bring things back.

Thursday it got worse. Hard shut downs would not bring anything back but i would see the bios startup screen so obviously the monitor and display adapter has some output. I started in safe-mode and installed that latest driver from the nvidia website. No difference, in fact it appears to be the same driver that windows update put out.

My next step was to roll back my driver to the one that came with my video card. This kind of works. There are new symptoms now. Now what happens is that after working for awhile i would hear the usual kind of insert/disconnect sound (like plugging in a usb device) and then the screen resolution would change from 1920x1200 to 1024x768. For some reason the monitor according to the screen resolution control would go from my monitor to a generic. If i click on the detect button, the screen will blank out and once again i have to do a hard shut down. The hard shut down followed by a boot in safe mode and and reboot restores things to normal.
