|My question has 2 parts.|
1) I am attempting to repair 2 gateway laptops with Vista on them. My drivers "say" that they are working. The green light comes up as well as checking the driver to make sure it works. It still will not read any disk that I put in there.
2) I was reading a solution that required me to go to regedit.exe to do some complicated stuff. I can't find regedit.exe. I've even tried to find the backup (windows, system32, dll something or other), but I can't find that either. I debating trying to restore the registry via the restore disk that came with the computer BUT my cd drive isn't working. I've also checked my boot sequences and a USB isn't one of them. Go figure.
So! If anybody can help me out, that would be great. Yes, both of these computers have had viruses/ spyware and I've tried to clean it out as much as possible with the exception of wiping the system (once again can't do that because the drive isn't working).
