Having problems with your Compaq Presario R3000 Notebook ?

Unsuccessful system restore

\015 My bro decided to compress my files after I added Norton 360 to my system because it slowed my computer down. Since the compression, it hasn't started properly and it gives me the option to start in Safe Mode or Normally and either way it doesn't actually work. When we try to restore it back to it's original slow self, the restoration process starts and then the screen goes black. The computer is still on though. Help me please so I don't break his laptop. It's a Compaq Presario 2100 bought in 2003.\015

Answers :

Well first things first, knock your bro upside the head for doing it in the first place. If your virus software is slowing your system down them you change virus programs, add ram or get another hard drive. YOU DON'T COMPRESS YOUR HARD DRIVE. Compression has its place like for folders or files but not complete drives.
\015\012First thing you need to do is backup your SystemState, docs, favorites and emails using the backup tool in accessories>system tools>backup
\015\012Once that is done then you have some room to breathe and you can try different things.
\015\012What happened is your probably compressed your Master Boot Record that is why it is not booting properly.
\015\012Try these things in order:
\015\0121)since you already tried system restore point then
\015\0121) Boot into safe mode (F8) and try Last Know Configuration if doesn't work then
\015\0122)Put your Windows CD in and change the BIOS to boot from the CD. Let the CD run a few minutes until it ask to setup or Repair, choose R
\015\012This will put you in Recovery Console at the DOS prompt. Type fixmbr if not working try again and type fixboot. That is suppose to fix your master boot record.
\015\0123) Unfortunately if none of the above work then its time to re-install your operating system. Since you backed everything up, see above, then it should not be no big deal to re-install Windows.
\015\012Good luck, if you have any questions let me know..pls rate this solution
