1 Answer

Still stuck... Hi mate... the Microsoft Support link that you sent me is great but.... my computer (the one that works) does not have a floppy drive!... strangely, we decided to put a floppy drive in the new machine... if we somehow made a boot floppy disk.... However, I have a DVDRW drive so is it possible to make a boot CD? and how? Thanks

    hmm... I'm sure I've tried putting in the CD but it didn't work... and also it doesn't seem to be responsive to certain instructions from the keyboard! :(

If you are referring to the NTLDR issue, you can achieve the same by booting from the XP CD and entering the Recovery Console, as outlined in methods 2 and 3 :o)

Down laod xp recovery disk


If you're running Windows XP and Windows crashes or becomes unusable, you may have to run a Windows XP recovery setup disk to make your computer usable again. When purchased, many computers don't come with a Windows XP recovery setup disk, but you can download one for free from Microsoft. The Windows XP recovery setup disk holds the computer software and files that you need to assist you in rebuilding your operating system.

Place a formatted floppy disk in your floppy disk drive. You will need six formatted floppy disks. Visit Microsoft's Download Center and download the version of the setup disk for your version of Windows (see links in Resources). http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?displaylang=en&FamilyID=E8FE6868-6E4F-471C-B455-BD5AFEE126D8 Home Edition http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?displaylang=en&id=8030 Professional Edition set up disks for floppy http://www.download3000.com/download_17676.html XP Recovery CD Maker Windows XP Home Edition and Windows XP Professional Edition have their own recovery setup disks and you must use the correct disk for your version of Windows. Click "Download" and then "Save." Find your floppy drive or optical media drive on the menu and click "OK." If Windows isn't functioning at all, you will have to perform these actions from a working PC. Remove the last floppy disk when the Windows XP recovery disk download is complete and place it in the computer on which you need to use it. Shut down your computer and then turn it back on. If your computer prompts you to boot from the disk, press Enter. If it doesn't, you'll have to go into your BIOS to set the computer to boot first from your disk drive. When your computer boots from disk it will automatically start running the Windows XP recovery setup disk from which you can then set up Windows XP. Hope this helps.

Floppy drive is not shown in computer what is the reason behind it


hi.................................



Floppy Drive Does Not Show Up In My Computer

In case when your floppy drive does not show up in your "My Computer" whereas all other drives are showing up than you must first check if your drive is working fine?
Click on Start > Run and in the Run windows type compmgmt.msc, click on Device Manager and in the right pane right click on Floppy Disk Controllers and select properties. Check if the device is working fine. If it isn't than you need to contact your hardware vendor else if it is working fine than read on the problem seems to be in your BIOS.
Before proceeding make sure you know how to play with your BIOS. If you cannot better get help from experienced hands.
Check the CMOS settings and see if the floppy drive is visible. Ensure that the CMOS is set to "Halt on all errors" and also check that the BIOS' "Report the floppy drive to OS" setting is enabled.
Another reason could be drive letter conflicts caused by software such as RAMdisk.
Another reason might be the TweakUI power toy available at microsoft for FREE download. (check the right column for the download link.) The tool can cause drive letters to be hidden in Windows Explorer and My Computer. If you have it installed, go to the Control Panel and double-click on TweakUI. In the My Computer tab, select the checkboxes of the drives shown as hidden. Click Close and restart.


BEST OF LUCK............................

Hi i need imate jasjam PC suit, and speaker not working


Thanks for visiting FixYa!

Your phone was manufactured by HTC and uses the Windows Mobile Operating Platform. As such there are two programs you can download but which one you need will depend on your computer's operating system.

Download and install Windows Mobile Device Center 6.1 if you run Windows Vista or Windows 7 on your computer and you want to sync content between your mobile phone and your computer. Windows Mobile Device Center is only compatible with Windows Vista and Windows 7.
Download here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/931937

Microsoft ActiveSync 4.5 is the latest sync software release for Windows Mobile-powered devices. ActiveSync provides a great synchronization experience with Windows®-powered PCs and Microsoft Outlook right out of the box. Note: Microsoft ActiveSync works only with Windows XP SP2 or earlier.

Motherboard drivers


I contacted HP the other day for a problem while trying to load XP on a VISTA box. They sent me to this site.. and gave me instructions for resoluation or at least an attempt.. Hope this helps
Thanks David
Let me know it if works for your problem




Solution: The reason for this error message is that notebook has been shipped with SATA hard drive i.e SATA hard drive controllers. But Windows XP does not have built in SATA controller drivers.
To solve this problem we need to install SATA Controller drivers before we install Windows XP using a USB floppy drive.
Many customers are not ready to buy USB floppy drive and installation of XP is so complicated using USB Floppy drive.

We have found the driver for the SATA controller on Intel Website. Customer has used it and installed retail Microsoft Windows XP with SP2 successfully on his dv6500 notebook.
The same can be achieved in all the dv2500, dv6500 and dv9500 also DV2600, DV6600 and dv9600 notebooks.

Here is the link for the SATA drivers:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/genericSoftwareDownloadIndex?cc=us&lc=en&softwareitem=ob-39535-1&jumpid=reg_R1002_USEN

1. The file contains the Intel Matrix Storage Manager Floppy Configuration Utility.
2. This utility will create a floppy disk containing the RAID driver files for installation on a 32-bit operating system.
3. This floppy can be used to pre-install the Intel Matrix Storage Manager driver during the F6 portion of Windows setup.
4. You needs Microsoft Windows XP with SP2 Operating System disc and the USB Floppy drive.
5. After downloading the SATA driver in another notebook, you needs to extract and execute the file. It will help in creating the floppy disk that has the SATA drivers.
6. Boot with the Microsoft Windows XP disc and make sure the USB floppy drive with floppy disc is connected to the notebook.
7. At the F6 prompt, select F6 to install additional drivers which are not in-built in the retail Microsoft Windows XP Operating System disc.
8. When the prompt comes up to install additional drivers, insert the floppy and select the correct SATA Driver. It is Intel 82801HEM/HBM SATA AHCI Controller.
9. Once that is done, the rest of the installation runs as normal. There are only 2 drivers in the floppy disc that would work.
10. After the Operating System is installed in this manner you can install the chipset drivers for the notebook.
11. However for the other device drivers once Microsoft Windows XP is installed you may not have them from HP as these series are not released with a Microsoft Windows XP Operating System. The drivers like audio, ethernet and media card reader drivers etc.
12. Please be sure with EU that he might not have the other drivers from HP after installing the retail Microsoft Windows XP.

Note: Do not click on the link. Copy and the paste the link into the address bar of the web browser.

Boot problem - Win98SE


change the boot sequence in bios set up ...
keep in this order
first boot device as floppy
2.hard disk
3.cdrom

then save it and then have a check it should work ..
you have not mention hard disk here so i think the hard disk is not detected there may be some loose contact inside and it is not connected properly so it is not able to verify DMI pool ...
if so connect the hard disk properly then then have a check it will surely work..........

sounds like a faulty hard drive mate, if you download this software http://www.seagate.com/www/en-us/support/downloads/seatools/ and run it, it will install hard drive test software onto a floppy disk for you to test the drive from boot,

Happy new year
