Let's get this ball rollin'..............

Hello Cruxone/Nick,


I've been having some problems here myself, someone apparently partially cut a coaxial cable I ran years ago for a my main cable modem and I was having a hard time figuring this out. I just wasn't expecting "foul-play" I guess! Then, I finally got on earlier today for a real short time, and my lappie died, completely! Lost all kinds of open stuff, then rebooted and it said there was a damaged boot record. So after a quick "tech-trick" or at least a workaround (powered-off-&-on) It works fine for now! I just had something seemingly wrong with my router, so I just pulled the whole thing and replaced it for now. Now I just have to take a chance with no ground throughout the building, until later, but enough about me!!


I didn't see you the other day and I assumed you couldn't find DVD's or something, then The next day I started having problems....(BTW: I'm fine for now, I think) Let's get you going!


I am glad you did end up getting the DVDs/answers all okay, and I guess it's late to be asking you, but what type of DVD's are they maybe DVD + RW? or (plus/minus) in place of the "+"??
  1. Check to be sure you still have about the same amount of drive space free for use on your C drive. You can check back to Posts #123, 126, etc. No need to post screen cap. just be sure the room hasn't been eaten-up by something. It was just over 8GB free the other day.
  2. Download the image file for your computer: http://msft.digitalrivercontent.net/win/X17-58997.iso Windows 7 Home Premium x64 English, Saving it to your E : drive in a location you will know where to find it. This is a large file and may take some time to download depending on your connection. Remember - later on, well be using YOUR original windows OEM product key to activate this copy of your windows licensed software properly. We will go over those details when the time comes.
  3. Use this tutorial to burn the ISO file to a blank DVD: How to Burn a bootable Windows 7 DVD(follow steps from the top all the way through the end of step 1. Then stop. Keeping in mind where the ISO/Image file was saved to on our E : Drive during Step 2)
You should now have a clean copy of the original windows installation disc for your licensed version. Congratulations! Hold on to it tightly!



Now, if anything EVER goes wrong in the future (God Forbid ), all you need is this disc (undamaged), an understanding of what you need to do (or a copy of the next set of instructions I'll be sending!) and to back up any files, drivers, etc you may wish to keep at the time (which you've done already, for this time! - so were past this step! - at least for the files that is....but that's coming....just wait.) Basically what I'm saying is: Always Hang-On To This Disc! You'll always be much more safe and prepared for similar problems with far less work involved.

Questions?...

In a little bit, I'll be sending you a link(s) to the general installation process, some of which of it may not apply to you, or have already been done. You can still benefit from reading through it and get an idea of the overall process. As well as a chance to make a copy/print-out, in case your have a question/problem once the process has begun, as this will be your only helper at that point. I will not be there, so print anything that you can which might apply, and be of use to you. The links will follow shortly, but there's no major rush as you have quite a bit to do I think.........



Thanks,
Mike

So sorry. I had to move, and simultaneously got extremely sick. I slept like 18 hours. Will get on this today.

No problem, hope you're feeling better!

Just let me know if you have trouble and when you get as far as I left you at, I'll still probably be online, so well take it from there.


Take it easy,
Mike

I fixed it! I bought a new sound card Channel+ MUL106 5.1 Channel PCI Sound Card and installed it.
Plugged speakers into new PCI plug connections. (same as were plugged into MOBO audio connections).
Microsoft still would let sound work, so I went to Channel+'s website and downloaded a driver (it wasn't on Microsoft's list of driver updates) and rebooted.
Sound!

Ok, I only have 4GB available in my C drive again. Not sure how that happened. My currently installed programs only total 2.54 GB, so uninstalling programs won't help. I tried to diable hybernate again, that didn't do anything.
