Can windows tweaking repair fix the attached registry?  I attached the file but don't see it. I ran the system readyness tool already. I was just going to do a clean install but When I tried the keys from winkey, no go. I found out last Vista I worked on, same issue. I ordered the recovery disks, read the keys with winkey and that one didn't want to validate either. That one had the original sticker so those keys validated. This tag is gone.

Hi minnie1967,

What is the make and model number of this computer? There's a strong possibility that there is a hidden recovery partition that could be accessed by the right combination of F-keys to restore to factory condition.

Does the computer boot in normal mode?

What symptoms are you experiencing?

Donna :)
