    Registry Problems?


    I've had my computer for quite sometime but after several software updates over the years my computer will no longer shut itself down completely. It will close up programs but will not shut-off. I have to manually push the on/off switch which will shut-off but then when I start it, it has to go through the reboot process and sometimes blue screens with different messages given as to problem encountered. It sometimes take a few restarts before it actually appears to work correctly. I have tried to reset it, restore it etc., etc., but the problems continue. I'm quite attached to this older "Gateway" PC Tower and would love to find out just how to fix it. I have gone into the bios settings several times which sometimes helps and sometimes not. The fan runs pretty high most of the time but sometimes I can get it to run quietly but here as of late I cant even do that. If I do a "re-start" the system shuts itself off and restarts just fine but again the Fan runs on high.

    Any "real" software fixes that can be suggested.


    Thanks in advance and please no "just junk it" types.. that thought has already occurred to me but I'd rather not.

    :)

    Registry editing

    Hello,

    This issue may have occurred after one of the following situations:

    • You upgrade the Windows operating system.
    • You install or uninstall CD or DVD recording programs.
    • You uninstall Microsoft Digital Image.

    Given that, we suggest performing the methods in this article:
    Your CD or DVD drive is not recognized by Windows or other programs
    .
    The resolutions that are listed in that article may help solve some instances but not all instances of this problem.

    Important:This section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow
    these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs. For more information about how to back up and restore the registry, refer to the following Microsoft Knowledge Base
    article.


    Feel free to update us with the results.

    registry fix

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    As per the description, I understand that you are facing some issues using Windows 10.

    I would like to know some information.


    • What registry fix are you trying to run?

    • What is the exact issue that you are facing?

    • Have you taken a backup of all your data?
    I would suggest you to take a backup of all your data before doing any changes in the registry keys. If you do any incorrect changes to the registry you won’t be able to boot the computer.

    Disclaimer: This section, method, or task contains steps that tells you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow these steps
    carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs. For more information about how to back up and restore the registry, click the following article number to view the article in
    the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

    322756 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/322756/ )

    Please let us know the information in brief. We will be glad to assist you further.

    Registry Problems?

    Windows 10 1709 System Restore problems...


    That seems to be an attempt at Option 2 in the tutorial, which requires you to
    a. Boot to a command prompt (Did you?)
    b. You then seem to be mixing steps 3,4 and 5, thus your command is incorrect.

    I suggest Option 1 is easier.

    If you still have problems, please repost listing each specific step and saying which option from the tutorial you are using. Thanks.
