    I have Windows 7 Ultimate Asus ( PC ) and i did Disk Wipe on it by selecting it from the System Recovery Options and now i can't start my computer because this message shows up: "Reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key" i think it's because the disk wipe deleted my Windows 7 too but i don't have a disk, is there a way to restore my Windows 7 or fix the issue? The only thing i can pretty much do from my knowledge is click F2 or Del to open this Boot menu which i'll try to insert here with a picture

  • How can I get the files off this CD?

    I can open it and see the files, but when I try to copy them the whole computer just freezes up and says it can't read the file. There is a dark spot around the center hole on both sides of the disc. What happened to it, and is there any way to get those files?

  • Would I be laughed at if I use a floppy disk to save stuff slot of laptops and computer still have floppy disk drive?

    Best answer: If you can save data from a laptop to a 'floppy' I suspect you would need 100s if not 1000s of them to save your data because floppies will be extremely limited with the amount of space they have.

    I just bought a cheap HP Pavilion Desktop. It came installed with Windows 10. I bought it because next semester I’ll behin working on my cloud and administration degree and I want to delete windows 10 and install Windows Server 2012 so I could get comfortable with it before taken my MCSA courses. So I went to DISKPART and cleaned the partition with Windows 10. I feel like I should have formatted the hdd afterwards but didn’t. So I have a Server 2012 dvd, which I want to install but now whenever I restart the computer I get a non-system disk or disk error message. I downloaded window adk on my main computer thinking I could load it to a thumb drive so I could at least boot to a cmd and maybe formatting the hdd would solve my problem, but I still keep getting the same message. Any advice?

    Best answer: The Turing machine was a theoretical computer which was a thought exercise that showed how computer programs work. The Turing test was a test for artificial intelligence, but that's probably obsolete now, as now that it's been passed, we don't want computers that are too human like. Using his computer theory he actually was able to build a machine to break codes which they used during WWII on the German enigma code.
    I also read that the Apple logo, the rainbow Apple with a bite taken out, is a tribute to Turing, as a bitten Apple was found next to his bed when they found him dead. Not sure if that's true. I don't think the rainbow was being used for homosexuality in the early 70s, when the logo was designed but I might be mistaken.

    Best answer: you should have a copy of your licence number.
    if you had a CD install, then the licence or activation code will be on the box or CD sleeve
    If you purchased the licence after a trial, then it will be in an email
    if the licence came with the computer ('office' for example) then you can find freeware that will extract the licence number so you can add it to the new machine
    if all else fails, then get in touch with the software manufacturers who should have a record of your email and will give you instructions of how to add the software to your new machine
