    To cleanse the lens use the purest rubbing alcohol you can find (the radio shack cd cleaner is isopropanol, eg pure rubbing alcohol, above 91% according to this page)

This generally indicates that the disc is corrupt. It can be anything from a scratch, degraded read section on the disc, or a distortion from the disc getting bent or hot (left in direct sunlight). You will most likely have to use a different disc for the install.

    This could be the cd drive. Try cleaning the lens. I've had a few drives that were just flat picky when it came to the disc it was reading. You might also try burning a copy of the XP disc and trying it that way. One other way I've been able to load an operating system into a stubborn machine is to load the hard drive on a different machine, then do a system repair on the machine you're trying to load. Generally the system configurations aren't compatible enough to run the operating system, but the repair will pick up the new configuration, and reinstall all the files for it to run correctly. I know it's a pain, but if it won't load, what are ya gonna do? Try these and let me know.

"Unexpected error (0) occured at line


Hi Ghosh.

Cause of this problem may be:

This behavior can occur because of damaged random access memory (RAM) modules or a damaged RAM slot.

To resolve this issue, use one or more of the following methods, as necessary:
  • Remove one or more of the RAM modules in your computer, leaving at least the minimum amount of RAM required for Windows XP installation. If this resolves the issue, either replace these modules with new RAM modules or reinsert them after Setup is completed.

    NOTE: Verify that your computer's performance is not affected when you reinsert the old RAM modules.

    -or-
  • Install the RAM modules into different (unused) RAM slots in your computer.

    -or-
  • If you still experience problems before or after Setup, replace all of your computer's RAM modules with new RAM modules.

Error "Setup didn't find HDD"


Well, first of all XP is not the latest supported operating system from Microsoft.

That being said, I have not had a garbled screen followed by an error message 'setup didn't find any hard disk drive installed' on a laptop, in my limited experience with laptops (i.e. Acer One, Acer Aspire, Sony Vaio, etc.)

If you have an unexpected garbled screen it points to the pc board or mother board or the video card, but more likely the motherboard.

And, if you couple this with the hard disk drive not being detected, it reminds me of a situation where I had a no hard disk drive detected on a SCSI drive connected to my Windows 95 computer in the 1990s when I had heat related issues with the circuitry on the hard drive getting burnt out capacitors.

If the drive is not recognized, it might mean the boot sector is wiped, and essentially it needs to be reformatted and the operating system needs to be reinstalled (which you evidently tried to do).

To my memory, I never had this problem on Windows XP with a laptop, so I am thinking it's not Windows that is at fault, but the physical hardware is giving you problems.

If you boot from the CD for Windows XP and it doesn't find the drive, it's a big problem for this laptop.

I wish you luck in finding an answer to that one, seeing that it's out of warranty and XP is no longer supported by Microsoft.com.

Problem installing windows XP


This is going to be either a bad disc or a bad hard drive. Do a hard drive test in the bios, if any part of it fails, then you will need to replace the hard drive. If the hard drive passes, then try a different operating system disc.

Mayeb you need to repair the OS - In which case you will need to have SCSI Controller XP OS floppy driver obtained from IBM website.

Start up the computer booting up from the CD ROM. Then when it comes to "install thrid party devices" - press 'S' and insert the floppy with the SCSI Coontroller on it and follow the on screen instructions.

Windows Xp on Intellistation Z Pro type 6221


A restoration disc is not a conventional Windows OS disc (and vice versa), therefore it often cannot be used as if it were a true Windows disc. The restoration disc includes the OS, but it also includes every driver and other software product that came with your system. If Windows were the only item loaded on your system, then a Windows disc could serve as a restoration disc, but these days, using a typical restoration disc is an all-or-nothing process.

A restoration disc is your ultimate troubleshooting tool. Suppose that your copy of Windows becomes damaged from a virus or key applications become corrupted. Symptoms such as instability, crashing, indecipherable error messages, and impaired performance are extremely hard to diagnose by yourself—even if you have the help of a customer support technician on the telephone. If the most common corrective steps fail, you can always use the restoration disc to recover your PC back to its known-good, factory-fresh state.
