When using Windows Vista operating system, it will sometimes stop responding upon booting up the computer or in the midst of doing something because of a corrupted registry, system files and a miss of the device driver files. So how can we effectively solve it to optimize Vista? Here, a common solution will be discussed.
To solve the stop-responding issue and then optimize Vista, it is necessary to use the Windows Vista installation disc and the follow the steps below to fix the problem:
1) Insert the Windows Vista installation disc and boot your system (Note that you have set it to boot from CD or DVD)
2) Set the preferred language and then click “Next” to proceed.
3) Click “Repair My Computer”.
4) Then, select the operating system to be repaired in “System Recovery Options” dialog box and then click “Next”.
5) Click to select “Startup Repair” option in same dialog box to automatically detect and then correct startup problems which result in stop-responding problems. Click “Finish” when the process gets completed.
But if you have preinstalled recovery option, you can simply follow the steps below to fix the issue rather than use Windows Vista installation disc to use “Startup Repair” tool.
1) Remove all floppy disks, CD and DVD from the computer, and then restart the computer
2) Follow one of the operations below to proceed: A. If you only have one operating system, please directly get into Windows safe mode B. If you have multiple operating systems, you can first select the one to be repaired and then press F8 to get into safe mode.
3) Select “Repair My Computer” within the “Advanced Boot Options” and press “Enter”.
4) Click one keyboard layout in the list and press “Next”.
5) Click one user in the list, enter the password and click “OK”.
6) Select “Startup Repair” option within “System Recovery Options” dialog box.
7) When the repair process finishes, simply click “Finish”.
(Note: if the problem still remains after you reboot your computer, please repeat the steps above to fix the problem)
With the simple steps above, you can easily fix the problem and then optimize your computer. But here, I still want to mention that to optimize Vista, it is necessary for you to pay attention to some other dispensable daily maintenance such as regularly run the built-in Disk Cleanup to clear the useless system junk files, or timely uninstall the unwanted programs from the computer, which should be followed by a simple disk defragmentation to rearrange the files on the hard disk, making them always stay at a single same place of the hard disk and much easier to input or output when necessary, which will greatly speed up the computer and avoid system crashes, freeze-up.
What is more important, to optimize Windows Vista you still have to check and fix Windows registry errors. We all know that Windows is made up of registry files which are importantly needed to ensure the proper running of the computer and some certain programs on the PC. However, the personal laptop or computer registry gets corrupted easily as you install or uninstall programs, making the operating system to perform slowly or generate kinds of error messages. For this concern, to optimize Vista and always enjoy a PC without errors you need to troubleshoot and get rid of all errors inside the registry as quickly as you can.
In conclusion, when using the computer, it is necessary for us to master some solutions to deal with some sudden computer stop-responding problem and optimize computer performance. No matter you are using Windows XP or Windows Vista, you can properly maintain PC performance by using the steps mentioned here.
