1. 00:00:00:23 / 00:00:06:99 - hello and welcome to this video this
2. 00:00:03:72 / 00:00:10:65 - video is basically gonna show you how to
3. 00:00:06:99 / 00:00:13:25 - shall we say recover from when you're
4. 00:00:10:65 / 00:00:18:80 - unable to boot into Windows and you know
5. 00:00:13:25 / 00:00:23:13 - what exactly you did prior to it going
6. 00:00:18:80 / 00:00:25:74 - into a system state such as that ok
7. 00:00:23:12 / 00:00:28:97 - we're artificially gonna create two
8. 00:00:25:73 / 00:00:31:07 - issues one is a driver problem okay for
9. 00:00:28:98 / 00:00:34:67 - our mouse we're gonna kinda like disable
10. 00:00:31:07 / 00:00:37:93 - our mouse we're also gonna create a
11. 00:00:34:67 / 00:00:41:39 - service issue okay
12. 00:00:37:93 / 00:00:46:10 - regarding taking something not important
13. 00:00:41:39 / 00:00:50:07 - for example this xbox live game okay the
14. 00:00:46:10 / 00:00:52:14 - first thing you'd need to know is what
15. 00:00:50:07 / 00:00:54:96 - exactly you've installed for example you
16. 00:00:52:14 / 00:00:57:60 - install a driver you install some
17. 00:00:54:96 / 00:01:02:23 - software okay or you made a modification
18. 00:00:57:60 / 00:01:06:35 - in services or even in the registry
19. 00:01:02:23 / 00:01:08:48 - let's assume it's a service issue okay
20. 00:01:06:35 / 00:01:13:07 - so the first thing you need to do is
21. 00:01:08:48 / 00:01:16:34 - type services to get to the Services Inc
22. 00:01:13:07 / 00:01:19:07 - click on that get there scroll down we
23. 00:01:16:34 / 00:01:22:22 - are gonna disable this but we're first
24. 00:01:19:07 / 00:01:26:64 - gonna show you the registry editor to
25. 00:01:22:22 / 00:01:29:06 - get to that it's reg edit and then run
26. 00:01:26:64 / 00:01:33:29 - that and then you'll get this and then
27. 00:01:29:06 / 00:01:35:18 - you get a massive list of things we're
28. 00:01:33:29 / 00:01:39:45 - primarily when we're dealing with
29. 00:01:35:18 / 00:01:43:40 - services or drivers okay it's in the H
30. 00:01:39:45 / 00:01:47:36 - key local machine system and it will be
31. 00:01:43:40 / 00:01:51:35 - in the control sets okay for the current
32. 00:01:47:36 / 00:01:53:81 - control set we are going to show you
33. 00:01:51:35 / 00:01:55:43 - what happens for example in this Xbox
34. 00:01:53:81 / 00:01:57:80 - I'll just click on that
35. 00:01:55:43 / 00:02:01:31 - let's change startup type from manual to
36. 00:01:57:81 / 00:02:06:29 - disabled so let's assume your computer
37. 00:02:01:31 / 00:02:08:25 - actually needed a service and for some
38. 00:02:06:29 / 00:02:10:83 - reason it was disabled and that's
39. 00:02:08:25 / 00:02:13:46 - stopping your computer from booting up
40. 00:02:10:83 / 00:02:18:29 - properly so in the
41. 00:02:13:46 / 00:02:27:78 - trol set if we go down all the way down
42. 00:02:18:28 / 00:02:31:81 - you'll find our Xbox service is over
43. 00:02:27:78 / 00:02:36:36 - there Xbox game service now disabled is
44. 00:02:31:81 / 00:02:41:96 - for and we'll just prove it if I was to
45. 00:02:36:36 / 00:02:44:34 - change that to manual click OK and then
46. 00:02:41:96 / 00:02:47:90 - refresh on this which is just press f5
47. 00:02:44:34 / 00:02:51:75 - it changes three have you seen how the
48. 00:02:47:90 / 00:02:54:48 - registry mimics services so if you can
49. 00:02:51:75 / 00:02:59:03 - find the service you can then just
50. 00:02:54:47 / 00:03:00:68 - change the start value maybe the service
51. 00:02:59:03 / 00:03:03:00 - is causing a problem maybe you need to
52. 00:03:00:68 / 00:03:06:30 - disable it if so you change the number
53. 00:03:03:00 / 00:03:08:52 - to four to disable it if the service is
54. 00:03:06:30 / 00:03:13:95 - not starting maybe you might want to
55. 00:03:08:52 / 00:03:17:37 - change it to 3 2 or 1 ok depending on
56. 00:03:13:94 / 00:03:22:10 - the different values 0 is boot and then
57. 00:03:17:37 / 00:03:26:84 - you have automatic etc automatic delayed
58. 00:03:22:11 / 00:03:28:92 - and all that 3 is manual for is disabled
59. 00:03:26:84 / 00:03:32:75 - this is the two numbers that we're gonna
60. 00:03:28:91 / 00:03:37:73 - be dealing with now now that was a
61. 00:03:32:75 / 00:03:43:10 - service ok so we've shown you how the
62. 00:03:37:73 / 00:03:45:15 - registry can be used to actually help
63. 00:03:43:11 / 00:03:48:35 - with services now let's show you
64. 00:03:45:15 / 00:03:52:08 - regarding a driver let's assume our
65. 00:03:48:34 / 00:03:52:73 - mouse okay we're gonna take a mouse
66. 00:03:52:08 / 00:03:55:32 - issue
67. 00:03:52:73 / 00:04:01:51 - we're gonna go upwards we know for a
68. 00:03:55:31 / 00:04:04:70 - fact that the mouse is called Mouse
69. 00:04:01:51 / 00:04:10:01 - something let's quickly just find it
70. 00:04:04:70 / 00:04:12:59 - under M there we go mouths class ok
71. 00:04:10:01 / 00:04:16:19 - clicking on this you'll see the start
72. 00:04:12:59 / 00:04:18:60 - type is also delayed okay you don't need
73. 00:04:16:19 / 00:04:21:81 - the mouse until Windows actually but
74. 00:04:18:60 / 00:04:23:66 - it's up we're now actually gonna type 4
75. 00:04:21:81 / 00:04:27:00 - so we've artificially created a problem
76. 00:04:23:66 / 00:04:27:50 - where when windows starts the mouse will
77. 00:04:27:00 / 00:04:29:61 - not work
78. 00:04:27:50 / 00:04:32:63 - and we're actually gonna demonstrate
79. 00:04:29:61 / 00:04:34:05 - this by resetting the computer and then
80. 00:04:32:63 / 00:04:38:08 - we're gonna show you how to actually
81. 00:04:34:05 / 00:04:41:63 - repair this from outside of windows
82. 00:04:38:08 / 00:04:44:44 - so we'll just close that down and
83. 00:04:41:63 / 00:04:44:44 - restart
84. 00:04:47:71 / 00:04:52:80 - so we have rebooted and you can probably
85. 00:04:51:16 / 00:04:56:17 - listen to us
86. 00:04:52:80 / 00:05:00:21 - trying to move our mouse around and
87. 00:04:56:17 / 00:05:03:67 - there is no mouse okay so we've seen how
88. 00:05:00:21 / 00:05:06:72 - basically drivers their settings within
89. 00:05:03:67 / 00:05:09:13 - registry can actually cause problems
90. 00:05:06:72 / 00:05:12:61 - let's assume the problem was so serious
91. 00:05:09:13 / 00:05:15:19 - that you could not even restart the
92. 00:05:12:61 / 00:05:22:45 - computer you would just get basically a
93. 00:05:15:19 / 00:05:25:03 - black screen okay let's now go and show
94. 00:05:22:45 / 00:05:27:55 - you how to use the recovery disk that is
95. 00:05:25:03 / 00:05:32:30 - from the previous video the link should
96. 00:05:27:55 / 00:05:36:64 - be in the video description okay we've
97. 00:05:32:30 / 00:05:39:88 - just got this up it's the BIOS UEFI UEFI
98. 00:05:36:64 / 00:05:41:80 - kind of screen it depends on each
99. 00:05:39:88 / 00:05:44:77 - computer we're using a virtual machine
100. 00:05:41:80 / 00:05:48:76 - over here so you can see it but
101. 00:05:44:77 / 00:05:52:69 - basically what the concept is is that
102. 00:05:48:76 / 00:05:55:33 - you need to boot from that USB recovery
103. 00:05:52:69 / 00:05:59:36 - drive that you created so we have
104. 00:05:55:33 / 00:06:01:72 - selected that okay and we're gonna boot
105. 00:05:59:36 / 00:06:04:93 - from that us mistake it will take a lot
106. 00:06:01:72 / 00:06:07:48 - longer than a normal boot a once it
107. 00:06:04:93 / 00:06:11:26 - boots up then you basically click on
108. 00:06:07:48 / 00:06:14:55 - troubleshoot Advanced Options go to
109. 00:06:11:26 / 00:06:20:41 - command prompt and we're using the same
110. 00:06:14:55 / 00:06:24:61 - thing read edit okay the only thing is
111. 00:06:20:41 / 00:06:28:90 - we actually need to load the computer's
112. 00:06:24:61 / 00:06:31:39 - registry files rather than the USB is
113. 00:06:28:90 / 00:06:34:66 - registry files so the first thing you
114. 00:06:31:39 / 00:06:39:97 - need to do is shall we say click on here
115. 00:06:34:66 / 00:06:43:51 - on the local machine and then import our
116. 00:06:39:97 / 00:06:52:56 - load hi sorry find where it is
117. 00:06:43:51 / 00:06:52:56 - so this PC and then it's in windows
118. 00:06:53:70 / 00:06:56:70 - system32
119. 00:06:58:08 / 00:07:04:57 - then config and then you'll see all the
120. 00:07:02:38 / 00:07:07:81 - different registry ones okay we're
121. 00:07:04:57 / 00:07:13:25 - looking for a system give it a name
122. 00:07:07:81 / 00:07:15:76 - let's call it a local machine so that we
123. 00:07:13:25 / 00:07:20:95 - actually know we're dealing with the
124. 00:07:15:76 / 00:07:25:33 - local machines one okay so now this one
125. 00:07:20:95 / 00:07:27:88 - is where we shall find it previously was
126. 00:07:25:33 / 00:07:32:95 - currentcontrolset but it's control said
127. 00:07:27:88 / 00:07:38:18 - zero one in this version so again let's
128. 00:07:32:95 / 00:07:42:22 - go to services let's find the services
129. 00:07:38:18 / 00:07:48:92 - that were affected one was mouse one was
130. 00:07:42:23 / 00:07:51:59 - the Xbox let's maximize it for the
131. 00:07:48:92 / 00:07:53:83 - screen as we are working in a virtual
132. 00:07:51:58 / 00:07:57:58 - environment outside we're only getting
133. 00:07:53:82 / 00:08:01:37 - the size screen but when you do it you
134. 00:07:57:58 / 00:08:06:01 - should get a full screen so mouse mouse
135. 00:08:01:37 / 00:08:08:72 - was over here mouse class as you can see
136. 00:08:06:01 / 00:08:12:85 - it's four we want to change it to
137. 00:08:08:72 / 00:08:16:54 - actually start up so the mouse should
138. 00:08:12:86 / 00:08:20:54 - work and then the other one was Xbox and
139. 00:08:16:54 / 00:08:26:68 - for Xbox we've also done that made that
140. 00:08:20:54 / 00:08:31:79 - as three okay so everything is good now
141. 00:08:26:68 / 00:08:34:27 - if you want to find possibly if you
142. 00:08:31:79 / 00:08:37:51 - didn't know which driver is it was you
143. 00:08:34:27 / 00:08:41:00 - could go through this and try and hunt
144. 00:08:37:51 / 00:08:45:28 - and find the name and then modify it
145. 00:08:41:00 / 00:08:50:36 - within the services section there are
146. 00:08:45:28 / 00:08:54:11 - other options where you can take the
147. 00:08:50:36 / 00:08:57:76 - registry file and look for modification
148. 00:08:54:11 / 00:09:00:55 - based on time and date okay that would
149. 00:08:57:76 / 00:09:02:17 - have to be for another video possibly as
150. 00:09:00:54 / 00:09:04:51 - it is
151. 00:09:02:17 / 00:09:12:70 - a little bit detailed now all we need to
152. 00:09:04:51 / 00:09:15:13 - do is just select our little registry
153. 00:09:12:71 / 00:09:20:24 - that we opened up from the local machine
154. 00:09:15:13 / 00:09:23:19 - and then unload the hive click yes once
155. 00:09:20:24 / 00:09:26:99 - we start you'll find our mouse works etc
156. 00:09:23:20 / 00:09:31:66 - the concept over here was we just used a
157. 00:09:26:99 / 00:09:35:45 - simple example of a hardware issue or a
158. 00:09:31:65 / 00:09:39:25 - service issue now you obviously might
159. 00:09:35:45 / 00:09:41:27 - have a completely different driver or
160. 00:09:39:25 / 00:09:43:78 - service that is causing the problem
161. 00:09:41:26 / 00:09:45:91 - you would need to identify that and then
162. 00:09:43:78 / 00:09:48:43 - this is the way that you can actually
163. 00:09:45:91 / 00:09:52:24 - repair your computer from outside of
164. 00:09:48:44 / 00:09:56:75 - Windows and then get Windows back
165. 00:09:52:24 / 00:10:01:48 - hopefully this has helped this is an
166. 00:09:56:75 / 00:10:01:48 - advanced video so please be careful
