Happy New Year 2006

Happy New Year

New Years Eve
Friends and Family gathered round
Cheese and crackers for munching
Fireworks and noisemakers to welcome in the new
India to wet the whistle and
Someone to kiss to at the top of the hour

XP Pro wont boot up says pci.sys, XP Pro wont boot up...

A Problem
Some one Asked : XP Pro wont boot up says pci.sys, XP Pro wont boot up... HELPPPPP

I booted up my computer and it says it cant start because the file pci.sys is missing or corrupt, to go to the next screen and press R to repair. So I flash the bios, hoping that will do something, nothing. I go into the bios and change the boot sequence, so I can load the xp cd and repair the problem, nothing, It wont boot from the cdrom. I am going out of my mind, I dont know how to get back into windows or reformat. Please I need help bad. I got a website to finish for my boss and I need my pc.....

Expert says :
Make sure you have a working bootable XP CD.
Then put the CD rom as first boot device in your bios and boot.

The first thing to do is to run a checkdisk.
At the recovery console prompt type: CHKDSK C: /R
(notice that there's a space between K and C : and /).
If you happen to have a spare ram module lying around, try swapping with that.
Also try to remove all peripheral hardware that is not required for basic functionality.

Another Expert : Download a copy of hdd regenerator from the files section. It will make abootable floppy or a bootable cd. boot with it & let it run. If you have bad sectors on the drive this will fix it without damaging your files. It sounds to me like you do have bad sectors & that is why windows won't boot. DO NOT USE CHKDSK. If you do it will mark the sectors as bad & you will have to repartition the drive to get rid of the bad sector markings even if you fix the disk.

One More Solution :
Or when you get to the Windows Xp Setup screen.. and its finished loading all the drivers... ( this is assuming you have a bootable Win XP cd) Press R for repair... then at the promt press 1 if there is no admin password then at the C promt type in-> fixmbr what this does is fixes a corupt boot record.. then type ->exit to get out and reboot

One More Tip :Found this...hope it helps you get running again.

Secret Worlds: The Universe Within

Hello Check this link

View the Milky Way at 10 million light years from the Earth. Then move through space towards the Earth in successive orders of magnitude until you reach a tall oak tree just outside the buildings of the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory in Tallahassee, Florida. After that, begin to move from the actual size of a leaf into a microscopic world that reveals leaf cell walls, the cell nucleus, chromatin, DNA and finally, into the subatomic universe of electrons and protons.

How to Find your IP

An IP is something every human being on earth who has a computer has an IP which is unique and it stands for Internet Protocol, these IP's have a reason for being unique. 1 of them is for Internet Crime and Identification

IP's could easily get hold of no matter if its your IP you want or someone elses ( I wont give information on how to get someone elses information until MentaL gives me permission as this could be used for hacking) here is a list of how to get YOUR IP:

1. You can always use a website such as " " which shows your IP (Internet Protocol), you might ask how this website gets your IP, we will get to that later.
2. You can also use a program to get your IP such as " IP Checker " can be found on " "
3. You can do it manually in a manual way there is 2 ways,
Way 1. By RIGHT clicking the "Internet Connection" tray icon found on the bottom right hand corner (near the clock) and clicking on the Properties then on the Advanced Tab
Way 2. Click Start>Run type cmd and click ok, a new window will open this is called "Command Prompt", type "IPconfig /all" without the QUOTES, it will display a list of information what your looking for is the "IP Address" line, along the line you will see your IP address

Questions and Answers

Question: How does the website get your IP?
Answer: Websitews such as use a special PHP code; When the website is accessed it pings your computer which your computer pings the website back and thats where the IP is captured and displayed
