instructions in your PC user’s guide. If your machine still does not start, contact your Hewlett-Packard
customer support representative who will advise you further. Do not attempt to reinstall or configure the
Windows® system software unless your customer support representative instructs you to.
The MPEGscope
application doesn’t load
when I power up the
machine.
• Check that MPEGscope is one of the program folders in your Windows® Start menu. If the MPEGscope
folder is there, try to load the application by selecting the MPEGscope program name. If this works, refer
to Windows® online help to add the MPEGscope folder to your Startup folder.
• If the MPEGscope folder is not there, check that the MPEGscope application files are installed on the hard
drive. If you need to reinstall the software, refer to Appendix B, “Reinstalling Software”.
• If these measures do not solve the problem, contact your Hewlett-Packard customer support
representative.
MPEGscope has crashed
and is displaying the blue
“crash dump” screen.
• Press the Reset button and hold down for a few seconds to make sure that MPEGscope resets.
DO NOT POWER OFF THE PC, OTHERWISE THE MASTER BOOT RECORD ON THE SYSTEM DISK MAY
BECOME CORRUPTED.
You can help avoid blue screen problems by ensuring that all hard disk activity has stopped before you log
in. When the login screen appears, wait until the hard disk light on the front of your PC has completely
stopped flickering.
When I try to reboot after
getting the blue “crash
dump” screen, I get a
system disk error.
The master boot record on the system disk may be corrupt. You can repair it with the Windows® NT install
disks and emergency repair disk shipped with MPEGscope, as follows:
1 Boot MPEGscope using the Windows® NT Setup Disk 1. Follow the prompts at the bottom of the
screen and insert Windows® NT Setup Disk 2 when directed.
2 When the Welcome to Setup screen is displayed, press R to start the system disk repair. After doing
this, the following menu appears:
[X] Inspect registry files
[X] Inspect startup environment
[X] Verify Windows NT system files
[X] Inspect boot sector
Continue (perform selected tasks)

Suggested Action
3 Clear the X’s from all the options except Inspect boot sector, then select Continue (perform
selected tasks) and press Enter.
4 Insert Windows® NT Setup Disk 3 when directed then insert the MPEGscope Plus Windows® NT Repair
Disk when prompted.
5 The boot sector repair will take a few seconds. When the message on the screen indicates the repair is
complete, remove all diskettes from the drive and restart the system.
6 After the system restarts, run the Check Disk (chkdsk) utility to determine if any problems remain with
your system disk, as follows:
a) Launch the Disk Administrator from the Start/Programs/Administrative Tools (Common)
menu.
b) From the Disk Administrator, click anywhere in the Disk 0 field to select C: drive.
c) From the Tools menu, select Properties, then select the Tools tab.
d) From the Error–checking box, select the Check Now button.
e) From the Check Disk C:\ dialog, select both Check Disk options—Automatically fix file
system errors and Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors.
f) Select Start.
g) An information window is displayed which indicates that the Check Disk process cannot be
performed immediately because the utility cannot obtain exclusive access to the drive.
Click Yes to proceed.
Click OK to close the Properties window.
Close the Disk Administrator window.
h) Shut down and restart MPEGscope. Check Disk will execute during the system startup.
CAUTION
2-14
Do not remove the cover or handle any MPEGscope hardware unless advised
to do so by your HP customer support representative. Please disregard any
instructions in your PC user’s guide directing you to check or install components
inside your PC. Interfering with MPEGscope hardware may invalidate your
warranty.

Reinstalling Software
Reinstalling Software
MPEGscope comes with all the software pre–installed. However, an
installation disk is included in case you need to reinstall the software for any
reason. This appendix explains how to reinstall software, perform a system
backup, and restore your system.
Reinstalling Software
This process takes five to ten minutes.
1 If you have lost the license file backup disk shipped with your
MPEGscope, back up your permanent license file before installing
software by copying the file C:\HP-Apps\FLEXlm\licence.dat to a
floppy disk.
2 Insert the MPEGscope installation CD into the CD-ROM drive.
3 Launch the installation program by double-clicking on D:\Setup.exe from
the Windows NT Explorer window.
4 Follow the prompts in the installation dialogs. Accept the defaults each
time you are prompted for a choice.
5 When the installation program has finished copying MPEGscope files, the
PC will automatically shut down. Instead of resetting the PC, turn off the
power with the power switch.
6 Turn the power back on and log in. When the PC reboots, firmware is
automatically downloaded to the MPEGscope main card.
IMPORTANT
Occasionally a blue “crash dump” screen may occur if you log in quickly. To
avoid the problem, do not log in until the hard disk light on the front of your
PC has stopped flickering and all disk activity has stopped. If a blue screen
occurs, press the reset button and hold it down for a few seconds to make
sure that MPEGscope resets.
7 Follow the prompts to shut down the PC once more. Use the power switch
to turn off the PC when Windows NT indicates it is safe to do so.
8 Turn the power switch back on and remove the MPEGscope installation
CD from the CD-ROM drive.

Reinstalling Software
Performing a System Backup
Performing a System Backup
If you have purchased the optional 12/24 GB DAT drive, you can perform a system
backup as follows:
1 Start the Windows® NT Backup program:
• Click the Start button on the task bar.
• Select Programs, Administrative Tools (Common), Backup.
2 Expand the Drives window.
3 Enable the check boxes to the left of drives C: and E: to select them.
4 Click the Backup button.
5 From the Backup Information window, select Backup Local Registry, then
click OK to start the backup procedure. Progress will be displayed in a Backup
Status window. During the procedure, at least one file will be skipped (a
temporary file used by the backup program). The procedure takes at least six
minutes to complete, and possibly longer.
6 When the Backup Status window indicates that the procedure is complete,
close all Backup windows, eject the cassette, and store it in a safe place.

Reinstalling Software
Performing a System Restore
Performing a System Restore
After backing up the system drive to the optional 12/24 GB DAT drive, you can
restore it as follows:
1 Start the Windows® NT Backup program:
• Click the Start button on the task bar.
• Select Programs, Administrative Tools (Common), Backup.
2 Expand the Tapes window.
3 Double click the C:MPEGSCOPE entry. The tape program will create an
inventory list of the files on the tape.
4 Click the Restore button.
5 The Restore Information window should display Restore to
Drive=C:MPEGSCOPE. Select Restore Local Registry and Restore File
Permissions, then click OK.
6 Progress will be displayed in a Restore Status window. Early in the procedure,
a Confirm File Replace warning message will be displayed. Select Yes to All
to proceed.
7 When the procedure is complete, shut down and restart the PC.
