No stystem restore, no disc drive...copy/paste/drag/drop or audio! winxp please Tags: Configuration Windows XP Last response: December 21, 2011 1:51 PM in Windows XP Share meaganmjackson December 21, 2011 10:28:07 AM Hello, I run WinXp on a Gateway laptop which has no disk drive. I do not have a copy of the installation disk. My computer was running way way too slow as I use it for work running my own business. I have a few tasks each day but these were turning into entire day ordeals. I downloaded Advanced System Care 5 (I used 3 + 4 previously without a problem) I also always run Avast and I trust it enough that I do not believe I had a virus. I ran Deep Care on ASC. I noticed a few services I know I did not need running. To be sure I googled "which window xp services can I turn off" I clicked the first hit: http://www.jasonn.com/turning_off_unnecessary_services_... I followed these suggestions all the way. Stupidly I stopped Remote services... and cannot start them again! or dependencies now the start up takes longer and... Immediately I noticed I was unable to view the toolbar/taskbar or restore it. So I went to go see what files ASC deleted. It tells me it cannot access system restore I find services to see if something was wrong there. I am now unable to access the properties of any services. I tried to use the reg to change them back to their default start values but they went back after reboot. I still cannot use system restore and was unable to run my antivirus at all since. Also I cannot copy/paste/drag/drop/move/or hear any audio besides that dear little error beep. this is day 2 of no work for me because of this problem. going on 3. please help! thanks!

Either buy a new OS or contact Gateway to get the restore disks for your model. Good idea to buy a second hard drive, install Windows on that, and keep your current drive as is so you can copy your files over. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
