7. A technician is troubleshooting a PC. The display shows an “Invalid Boot Disk” error after the POST. What is a probable cause?

The MBR is corrupted. *

A process is using most of the CPU resources.

The date and time have been changed in the BIOS and do not reflect the correct time and date.

The PC does not have a floppy drive or the floppy drive is broken.

The PC has a BIOS password.

Explanation: Possible causes for the error shown are: (1) Media that does not have an operating system is in a drive. (2) The boot order is not set correctly in the BIOS. (3) The hard drive is not detected or the jumpers are not set correctly. (4) The hard drive does not have an operating system installed. (5) The MBR is corrupted. (6) The computer has a boot sector virus. (7) The hard drive is failing.

8. A technician notices that a program that is listed in the registry of a Windows computer is not found on that computer. What is a possible solution to the problem?

Explanation: By installing the application again, the link in the registry should work. When you uninstall the application, the uninstall process should remove the registry entries.

9. Which question is an open ended question that could be used when helping a customer troubleshoot a Windows problem?

Can you boot the operating system?

Have you changed your password recently?

Do you get a login prompt when the computer boots?

What programs have you installed recently? *

10. A technician has been asked to reinstall the OS on a computer that has a corrupted operating system. The technician inserts the installation media in the optical drive. What would be the most likely action the technician should perform next?

Change the boot sequence in the BIOS. *

Change the BIOS password.

Flash the BIOS for a firmware upgrade.

Change clock speeds in the BIOS.

Explanation: Typically, once the operating system has been installed, the computer boots from the hard disk all the time. To boot from an optical drive, the boot sequence needs to be modified. Changing the BIOS password, flashing the BIOS, and changing the clock speed have no effect on loading installation files from the optical drive.

11. A technician has successfully removed malware from a PC and finds that when the system is rebooted error messages are displayed about missing and corrupt system files. What utility can the technician use to replace or fix any corrupted system files?

Explanation: ASR is used to recover the operating system when it is totally corrupt and will not boot.

SFC is used to check the integrity of any system files that may have been corrupted and repair them.

Use the Command Prompt option to research the stop error messages.

View the error messages and recover the system using the System Image Recovery tool.

Access the Advanced Startup options menu before the OS loads to disable the auto restart function. *

Explanation: The error messages are difficult to read so the best solution is to first try to disable the auto restart function by accessing the Advanced Startup menu before the OS loads. Then the error messages can be read and further action taken to resolve the rebooting problem.

Explanation: The permission setting should have been Change or Full Control. The Read permission does not allow edited files to be saved.

17. A user calls the help desk and reports that the workstation, when powering up, displays error messages about an invalid system disk or invalid boot disk. When a technician comes to the office, the user mentions that the workstation was working well the day before. The technician checks the workstation and makes sure that the cable is firmly connected between the hard drive and the motherboard. What is another likely cause of the problem?

The MBR/GPT is corrupted. *

The boot service fails to start.

Some of the operating system files may be corrupted.

A recently installed device driver is incompatible with the boot.

Use gpupdate to propagate the group policy to other devices.

Make sure that OneDrive file sync is disabled.

Explanation: A Microsoft account is required to sync data between devices, to access OneDrive, and to work with parental controls of the Child account. It allows access to Microsoft cloud services and syncs desktop settings and profiles across multiple devices. For this to occur, all devices must be signed in with the same Microsoft account.

20. A technician is troubleshooting a Windows 10 PC with a frozen Internet Explorer window. Which command can the technician run, as an administrator at a command prompt, to terminate the Internet Explorer process that has hung?

taskkill /fi iexplorer.exe

taskkill /pid iexplorer.exe

taskkill /f /im iexplorer.exe *

taskkill /f /im explorer.exe

Explanation: The taskkill command can be used to end processes and services. The switch /im refers to the ImageName to end a task by PID or image name respectively. The switch /f terminates the process without any user notification. This is useful because it will terminate the hung process even if it is displaying a dialogue box.

22. A user wishes to view an ISO disk image file on a Windows 10 Pro PC. How can this be done?
