  1. Clear reinstall of 2004 - Reset or installation medium?


    I'm about to do a clean reinstall on one of my computers. Is there any meaningful different between invoking a Rest from Settings vs executing Setup.exe on an installation medium? I've done a clean reinstall only 2 or 3 times and always used the installation medium technique, but that is mostly based on ignorance.

    :)

  2. Clear Pagefile on Shutdown


    I've been looking into clearing the pagefile, and I found the following steps at a somewhat dated webpage:
    1. In the registry editor, navigate to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management
    2. Set ClearPageFileAtShutdown to the REG_DWORD value of 1.
    3. Restart Windows.
    I'm just wondering whether those steps are still valid, and, if so, does clearing the pagefile work as advertised?

    How to factory reset Cisco 1700 Router

    Hopefully I can help you here....its a very common thing to happen.


    First, I take it you dont know the passwords for console access or telnet/ssh?

    I will assume that these devices belong to you.

    step 1. Plug a cisco console cable into a serial port on your pc
    step 2. Plug other end into Cisco console port
    step 3. Using hyperterm or putty or similar connect to the serial port
    step 4. boot router, and make sure you clearly can see the output (this confirms you have good serial comms)
    step 5. if this fails, adjust the comm port settings (9600, 8,1,n are the default)
    step 6. now you have to do the only hard part...send the break command:

    Break command list: Break Commands

    Go down the list and match your OS and SW and try the sequence suggested.

    If this fails several times do what I do: Install putty (free) and then to send a break so you can get into rommom just hit "ctrl-a b".

  4. Clear reinstall of 2004 - Reset or installation medium?

    I can't reinstall my previously installed games!!!

    Hi Fahd,

    It appears that you're having an issue installing your previous games after reinstalling Windows 10. We would like to know if it is only happening when you're installing your games or is it also happening when you're installing an app from Microsoft Store.

    Meanwhile, we suggest clearing Windows Store's cache by performing these steps:

    • Press Windows key + R.
    • Type wsreset.exe then hit Enter.
    • Restart your computer.

    Keep us in the loop with the result.
