Cannot Start

Posted: 02-03-2008, 04:35 PM
I think i messed with system32 or something by mistake, and when i start an
error message claims that some file in system32, uxtheme.dll, is not
compatible, which I messed with to change my theme. It seems to be working
(brings to log in screen), but the message keeps popping up. Once i get it
away long enough to log in, a black screen comes up and it never finishes.
The message tells me to reinstall the file, but i cannot get on to do this.
Is it possible to do a system restore through cmd, which I can get open, or
reformat in some way? I did not get a disk to reformat with my computer, but
it is on warranty. What should I do? thanks
(not sure what section to put this in, or if i should talk to asus about it
instead of windows)

You will have to make a reinstall from the CD.
Try first a repair - it would'nt destroy anything else on the disk - a total
reinstall will format the disk.
To start from the CD you have to change the BIOS settings for the first
bootdevice.
To enter BIOS, use the <Del> while system boots up.

You have to find a system disk, and once you do insert it. Then during boot
click space bar or some other key and boot from the CD, the rest should be
following directions. I am not sure if this works for all but with my system
cd it did.
