Good morning we are with a customer on Lindsey Crescent at Kenilworth in Warwickshire, we are here because the customer has reported an issue with running Microsoft Office 2010 on their Acer Aspire Series 3 Laptop Computer.
When tested we find that there is a registry issue preventing the user profile from loading and the computer was locking up with in minutes of powering up followed by a blue screen of death stating that a memory error had occurred.
We first attempted to run the factory restore which maintains the users data this resulted in an error “WIM apply image fail error 0x45D (1117), upon reboot this resulted in a boot loader missing message.
At this point we stripped the computer and removed and backed up the customers documents, pictures and any thing else in the user folder to another computer.
We then restarted the computer holding the alt key and tapping the F10 key this loaded the factory reset menu which as we now had a backup of the customers data allowed us to run the factory restore to defaults.
Reinstall the customers programs and data, and install the customers HP Officejet Pro Wireless multi function Printer.
