  1. Sorry it has taken so long to respond. To answer your questions. Did a file called "deleted programs" appear. Yes, this is standard for any reset of windows 10. It is there to let you know what windows lost in the process. As for the cause of the Config corruption, I have yet to identify the cause or the Circumstances that brought about the issue. The customer in question has a bad habit of forcing his PC to turn off during the installation of updates. Hope this helps. Also, if you or if you know anyone who does kill their PC during the installation of updates, you will more than likely get a "Cortana and Start Menu Service" error that forces you to log out of your profile. fix for this is easy from the Login screen, simply restart your PC. the update installation will finish and finalize and Cortana and the Start Menu Service will be reinitialized and will work again.
  2. Hi All. I recently has a customer of mine bring me their old Dell laptop to me when it failed to boot into windows 10. The issue was it would blue screen during the boot sequence and give the error "BAD_SYSTEM_CONFIG_INFO". I was able to get into the advanced recovery features built into windows 10, however no matter what i tried, including "resetting" windows 10, would either fail or come up with the error that the drive was locked. I tested the laptop's Hard Drive through my own PC and attempted to "fix" it with the CHKDSK command. I completed that and put the drive back into the laptop, same issue, same blue screen of death (BSOD) After doing some digging through various forums, i found a solution that worked for me. It involves a registry fix that unfortunately needs to be performed through Command Prompt. The other problem is that you need to boot from a USB bootable version of the Windows 10 Installer or a Windows 10 Disc. If you try the commands within the recovery console within your original hard drive, it will give you an error. For the first part of this fix, you are going to need access to another computer or a copy of the windows 10 installation files. We will not be reinstalling windows 10, but we will be using the recovery tools built into the installer instead. I will apologize in advance, i do not have any screen shots to make this a little easier for you, as I am typing this a full day after delivering the completed repair back to the customer. To begin, you will need up to three things. A 4GB or preferable 8GB USB flash Drive download the Windows 10 media creation tool (if your net is good) OR a clean ISO for the windows 10 installer. If your using the iso, you will need a piece of software called Rufus. This will let you create a bootable USB from most ISO images. The Links Windows 10 media creation tool : https://www.microsoft.com/en-au/software-download/windows10 Rufus Direct Download : https://rufus.akeo.ie/downloads/rufus-2.7.exe Torrent for Windows 10 Dual installer .ISO : https://thepiratebay.se/torrent/12176822/Microsoft_Windows_10_Home_and_Pro_x64_Clean_ISO YES, I am aware that this is a torrent link. I have downloaded and tested this ISO myself ( i used it to perform the fix) IT is a clean installer with no hacks or keygens and will install windows 10 Home or Pro depending on the Product Key you own. If you need to use Rufus to create a bootable for any reason (say your internet sucks and the creation tool is going to take a week, or the tool cannot see your USB), here is a guide through the process. http://www.groovypost.com/howto/create-windows-10-bootable-usb-flash-drive/ Now things get interesting. Firstly you will need to boot off the USB flash drive. Most of the time, this involves hitting F12 as the PC or Laptop is booting up. Once this happens, the windows 10 installer will load up and ask you to chose your region and language and then select Next. Select "Repair Your Computer" Select "Advanced Options" this should be the screen you see Select "Command Prompt" Okay. The command prompt should now have show the line -> X:\Windows\System32\ We first need to find out what Drive letter (eg, D:\ or C:\) has been assigned by the recovery software to your actual OS drive. to do this, we are going to open the notepad program. simply type "notepad.exe" and it will behind the CMD windows. Click on the notepad window, select "File" and then "open" you should be able to use your mouse to make this a lot easier. click on "This PC" and it will show you the list of Drives. Take note of the Drive letter assigned to your Operation system Drive (again, eg; D:\ or E:\) Now things get interesting and a bit old school. We are going to use command lines to fix the rest of this. you need to change the Directory in command prompt to X:\Windows\System32\config (where X:\ = your primary windows partition that's having issues. EG. "cd D:\Windows\System32\Config" where D:\ is currently your OS drive) then you need to type each of these lines in, one at a time: ren X:\Windows\System32\config\DEFAULT DEFAULT.old ren X:\Windows\System32\config\SAM SAM.old ren X:\Windows\System32\config\SECURITY SECURITY.old ren X:\Windows\System32\config\SOFTWARE SOFTWARE.old ren X:\Windows\System32\config\SYSTEM SYSTEM.old This renames your core registry hive files to *.old. Now we copy in the backups copy X:\Windows\System32\config\RegBack\DEFAULT X:\Windows\System32\config\ copy X:\Windows\System32\config\RegBack\SAM X:\Windows\System32\config\ copy X:\Windows\System32\config\RegBack\SECURITY X:\Windows\System32\config\ copy X:\Windows\System32\config\RegBack\SYSTEM X:\Windows\System32\config\ copy X:\Windows\System32\config\RegBack\SOFTWARE X:\Windows\System32\config\ This will move the windows created registry backups into the System32\config folder to replace the old ones. Exit the command prompt and restart. This should get you into the OS. From here, i would greatly recommend backing up any data you need to. You can either leave your OS alone now and run with it, Or (and i highly recommend you do) you can reset Windows 10. To reset Windows 10 from the OS itself, you need to go to the start menu, click on "Power" and then HOLD THE SHIFT KEY AND CLICK RESTART This will restart windows in "Recovery mode" and you will be able to reset windows 10 and choose to either delete all your data or keep your personal files (select keep your files) Once it is done, you will need to reinstall any and all software you own, but your music, photos and documents, pretty much anything in your personal user folder will be transferred. Any games or software will be gone and will need to be reloaded onto your OS drive. If your Steam or Origin Library is stored on another drive, it will be fine, but you may lose your saved games, unless they were synced. I hope this will help someone in the future. If you have any questions, please feel free to send me a PM, or catch me in the Teamspeak channels. Thanks for your time everyone =TS= LtAlucard1387
  3. I look forwards to playing with you mate. we have had the pleasure of playing Warframe together and i look forwards to joining you in other games. i wholeheartedly say ...YES... welcome to the crew. I hope your boys can join us too.
  4. HELL YES. spoken with Aly a few times (just a few drives in the morning) and yes, i approve WHY IS NOT A MEMBER YET????
  5. Firstly, It is sad to see you leave us for the green Fairy. As for your XFX card, I assume you are in the USA or UK. XFX should still have a lifetime warranty (unless that changed in the last 3 years) the R9280 is a great card and i have its predecessor, the 7970, in my case a Lightning edition by MSI. The GTX 970 is a brilliant card, even though they are damned expensive over here in Australia. I highly recommend when you pick up your card that you either sell it as it will still be in warranty, and make the leap to the green fairy. But even Nvidia, with all the different companies selling their own "make" of the card will have the chance of blowing up. It is unfortunately part of buying tech. #$@^ happens. I have heard of very few XFX cards dying early, but then that is what the warranty is for isn't it? For what it is worth (and my 7 years as a PC tech and custom PC builder) i recommend you stick with a reference card, and avoid the current batch of Gigabyte and Phantom Cards on the market. I have heard some interesting things from my local supplier about the quality of the items arriving here over the last 6 months. At the end of the day, The arguement over Nvidia vs AMD has been going on for a long time. I love Eyefinity, others love bells and whistles I still compare them this way Nvidia is the High end Lambo with every extra feature imaginable and costs a fortune AMD is the Raw powered v8 hemi fastback, that may not have as many features, but gets you there just as fast and for less.
  6. My answer is simple. Why is Dusty not already in our ranks. have spoken at length with dusty and i believe he is a valuable addition to our community
  7. He is one of us already, hangs around with munch, LCM, Foley and myself He has played a few rounds of many things but mainly minecraft,
  8. A final update. As of this evening, steam is installed, I have swapped out the 160 gig drive sent with my old 600gig Raptor instead, and foley's games are installing. I have finalized the plans, and I will be personally driving the 450km to his place to deliver the PC and to say hi to the lions share of our Aussie Cohort. (sorry theo and Hitman, I cannot get to WA) As per our discussions with a few of you, any donations toward the fuel to get me and the PC there and back would be greatly appreciated. I am leaving my home on the Gold Coast in Queensland on the 29th of November and i should be home sunday evening of the 30th. After a little maths and some quick checks and it would seem that my old clunker of a wagon will need 3 full tanks of gas to get me there and back. Each tank will cost me about AU$75 and i would like to stop and eat. $120 has already been committed and received but a little more would greatly help Let me know via PM or in Teamspeak if you would like to jump on the band wagon too. otherwise any remaining fund i will pull myself. I have my Car checked in for a service, so i should be safe on the journey (needs one - Badly - after reaching 375000km on the OD). I look forwards to meeting the crew in Coffs and Glenreigh very soon. Cheers to everyone who has and will help LtAlucard1387
  9. holy sweet moses. that is expensive for shipping at the end of the day, if you can find a way to get it here then please, we will contribute. i will provide $150 AU to delivery. Also, windows 7 HP for this one, i will send a key when needed
  10. If you can get it here to australia for cheap then i am happy to do this i have window product keys in stock
  11. UPDATE: As an Alternate, and if the pledges are enough, i can build an entire new system for $750 - $800. This would allow me to build foley a entry level gaming computer using new stock and providing him a full warranty
  12. www.umart.com.au or www.msy.com.au
  13. a simple dual core 1.8 intel. The mainboard i have for him is a gigabyte GA-M61PME-S2 and i have 2 x 2 gig ddr2 800 sticks for him he has an acer as1830, however, the NSW and QLD governments have a customer firmware that basically cripples the abilities of the laptop.
  14. After a few days and a long chat with our Aussie Division, It has come to our attention That one of our members, Mr =Ts=Foley, has only his school issued laptop to play with (unless borrowing his older brothers PC) I have a dual core CPU and board, 4 gig of DDR 2 800 ram, and a 500 watt PSU. What i would like to do, and i ask for you, the community, to help if you can, contribute to getting the items we do not have. Thus far we need: 1 x mid tower or full tower 1 x dvd drive 1 x 1tb or 500 gig HDD 1 x Graphics card. After looking at our local supplier, (here in queensland, Australia) I have found that we need AU$250 to build him a basic PC. Foley's Birthday will happen on December the 2nd, and i would like to have this build and sent before then. Delivery will cost $145, I have the primary systems and i will cover the delivery cost myself. Dearest members of the Crew, if you have a few pennies to spare, please let me know and i will hand along my Paypal details and i will post receipts and photos as the purchases are made, if i can get it all in one big hit, i will attatch a pdf of the invoice. Help me make Foley a happy man and give the chance to get his own PC for some basic gaming.
