  • basic xp troubleshooting

    Its a real pain troubleshooting my carpc otherwise I would do trial and error etc. instead of posting here but...please help.

    I got a boot error(something about registry error) so I choose "Use last known good configuration". The problem is that the last known configuration seems to be from a long time ago. Is there any way I can get back to the 'bad' configuration and troubleshoot it? Or get my settings back some other way? What did I lose exactly?

    Thanks

    Can you get into safemode? If you can, when it asks you if you want to do a system restore, say that you want to (I think you select No, but I'm not sure). It then gives you a calender date to choose from. Choose the last known good restore point, and then just continue.

    Good Luck,

    Rafster

    P.S. What part of Deigo are you in? I'm in Bonita/Chula Vista

        I can't go because I'll be in Tx., but see if you can make it.

          Dude, that is the same reason that I won't be able to go....

          Of course I live in Texas, so it's not quite the same...
          Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
          How about the Wiki?

            I went into safe mode and the only option it gave me was to choose the OS(of which there was one). Is this normal?
