See "Using ScanDisk to check your hard disk." - There is an error in the Windows registry. See "Using the Windows Registry Checker." Using ScanDisk to Check Your Hard Disk -------------------------------------- If you suspect there may be file corruption or other problems with your hard disk(s), run ScanDisk to check for and repair errors. To check all your hard disks for errors: 1.
If you experience problems when you are trying to install Windows Memory Diagnostic, either be sure to run Mtinst.exe from your local computer, or review your security settings and the documentation included in your version of Windows. 3. Do either of the following: o Click Create Startup Disk to install Windows Memory Diagnostic on a floppy disk. 1. Select the floppy disk drive that you want to use from the list provided.
Junk files are useless or unnecessary files that pile up on the computer over a period of time. They may take up valuable hard disk drive memory that can even cause the computer to slow down. These unnecessary items or files may affect the overall performance of the computer. It could be impossible to manually look for them since they can be located anywhere in the system. When the computer user performs a junk file cleanup, they may be surprised as to how much disk space these files use on the computer.
Every version of Windows 9x lets you make an emergency boot floppy disk. When you boot from the floppy, Windows takes you to a DOS prompt where you can run DOS utility programs to evaluate and repair your hard disk, fix Windows, copy critical data to a safe location, or (in the worst case) reinstall Windows. Creating a boot floppy is the same in all versions of Windows 9x and in Me: Select Start, Settings, Control Panel, open the Add/Remove applet, select the Startup Disk tab, and click Create Disk. (You'll need a blank, formatted floppy disk.) If Windows is already misbehaving and you can't make a boot floppy, insert your Windows 98 or Windows Me CD-ROM and reboot.
Windows 95/98 will automatically detect the presence of your network card hardware in your computer. If Windows 95/98 goes immediately to the windows desktop, and does not display a new hardware detected message. Go to my computer > control panel > system > device manager tab > select the network adapter and remove it from the list > restart computer and you should get a windows asking for drivers. Important: When you reboot Windows 95/98 may ask you for the Operating System CD ROM. Please provide them as necessary.
This guide will be using Ubuntu 12.04 on a 64-bit processor, but can be followed on a computer with a different processor as long as Ubuntu is supported on that machine. The process may be similar for different versions of Ubuntu, but compatibility cannot be guaranteed. Once the appropriate installation media has been obtained and prepared, boot the machine using the installation media, which starts the installer. At this point, the computer will display the "Welcome" screen of the installer (Burton & Pendleton, 2013). Beginning the Installation On the "Welcome" screen there is a list of languages in the left column.
A plan will also need to be created to be able to apply updates to the computer in most-efficient and cost effective manner with little drag on the network. When the computers are running sluggishly, the performance of the computers can be monitor to see what is causing the slowness. Mrs. Chu has six administrative staff which needs access to the computers to be able to run application and print to network printers without having administrative rights to change settings on the computer. If the staff have their own assigned computer then each person can have a local account created on the computer. To add a person as a local user, click on Start, right click on Computer and then left click on manage.
The next command configures the CUI to search for files in that directory first before looking in its current location. The SET and PATH command procedures, even though different commands, are used in conjunction to configure CUI environment variables and the parameters displayed after that are what the CUI will search in first. The next command is loading DOS’s CD-Rom drive letter allocater (The CD-Rom driver must be loaded first in the CONFIG.SYS). The parameters after the executable file inform the CUI to allocate a particular drive letter for the CD-Rom and also may inform the CUI to allocate extended memory or how to read the CD-Rom in terms of speed and sectors. The LH configures the CUI to load this command procedure in high or extended memory.
Solution: The above mentioned problem can be solved by keeping the excess processes in the disk and calling them when they are needed. This can be implemented by swapping. Swapping takes place in the following manner: • The process to be executed should be present in the memory. Since the process can outweigh the memory the process is temporarily swapped out to the disk. • A quantum is set and allocated to the various processes by the CPU.
