    what is the brand and model of the computer... even more helpful would be the number of the motherboard.... if you are using an added sound card the numbers on the card are necessary to finding the driver for it.

71 years old, would like a step by step procedure to transfer the content of my computer to the hard drive, than i would like to remove & reinstall window xp. This would greatly be appreciated. Thank...


Hi

Transferring file from your computer to external hard drive is very easy, just copy and paste all the files you needed to the external hard drive.

Reinstalling Windows XP would be quite difficult. Make sure you have Windows XP installer CD and all the utility hardware driver of your computer e.g. Chipset driver, Sound driver, VGA driver, WAN driver, LAN driver and others. If you do not have the Utility drivers, just download the complete set of utility driver in the internet. Most of them are free to downloads.

Here is the procedure with video on how to reinstall the Windows XP operating system (step by step) http://www.fixya.com/support/r7410371-reinstall_windows_xp_or_installing_clean

When i start my pc today, i had stop 0x0000007b (0xf9e48528 0xc0000034 0x00000000 0x00000000) i try with chkdsk /r end fixboot but no result.


When you start your computer, you may receive one of the following error messages:
  • STOP: 0x0000007B (parameter1, parameter2, parameter3, parameter4)
    INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE
  • Setup has encountered a fatal error that prevents it from continuing.

    Contact your product support representative for assistance. The following status will assist them in diagnosing the problem.

    (0x4, 0x1, 0, 0)

    Setup cannot continue. Power down or reboot your computer now.
You may also receive a "Stop 0x0000007B" error message during Windows XP Setup when the Setup program restarts during the installation process. When you receive a Stop error while the Setup program is running, you receive the second error message. To troubleshoot this issue, read the following four sections to determine if any one of the issues applies to you. If none of the issues apply to you, use the following general troubleshooting steps at the end of the article. uparrow.gifBack to the top Boot-Sector Viruses You may receive a "Stop 0x0000007B" error message if your computer is infected with a boot-sector virus. If the problem is intermittent and you can start Windows, check your computer for viruses. If you find a virus, also check any floppy disks for viruses before you use them again.

For a list of antivirus software manufacturers, click the following article number to see the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 49500 List of Antivirus Software Vendors Note You may have to use more than one brand of virus-detection software to detect and remove various viruses.

Important If your computer has been infected, it may be open to additional forms of attack. We recommend that you rebuild infected Internet-facing servers by following the guidelines that are published on the CERT Web site. Internet-facing servers are servers that function without a firewall or other protection. It is also a good idea to rebuild any other computers that are at risk because of their proximity to infected computers before you put them back in service.

If a virus has infected your Windows XP-based computer and a virus-detection program cannot remove the virus and repair the system, you must repartition and format your hard disk and reinstall Windows XP. For additional information about partitioning and formatting a hard disk with Windows XP, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 313348 How to partition and format a hard disk in Windows XP For more information about how to help protect the boot sector from viruses in Windows XP, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 122221 How to protect boot sector from viruses in Windows uparrow.gifBack to the top Device Driver IssuesYou may receive a "Stop 0x0000007B" error message in the following scenarios:
  • A device driver that the computer boot controller needs is not configured to start during the startup process.
  • A device driver that the computer boot controller needs is corrupted.
  • Information in the Windows XP registry (information related to how the device drivers load during startup) is corrupted.
Windows XP requires a miniport driver to communicate with the hard disk controller that is used to start your computer. If Windows XP does not supply a device driver for your controller or if Windows XP is using a corrupted or incompatible driver, you must replace the driver with a valid copy that is compatible with your controller and Windows XP.

During the first phase of the Windows XP installation, Setup displays the following message at the bottom of the screen: Press F6 if you have to install a third-party SCSI or RAID driver. Press F6 and then follow the instructions to install a mass-storage device driver from your Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM). For additional information about using F6 to load an OEM device driver to support, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: General Troubleshooting If none of the issues that have been described in this article apply to you, use the following general troubleshooting steps:
  1. If you receive one of these error messages while you are installing Windows XP, update the computer BIOS or obtain Windows XP drivers for your hard disk controller (from the manufacturer of your computer, system board, or hard disk controller), or do both. For information about how to update your computer's BIOS or obtain Windows XP drivers, contact your computer manufacturer. For additional information about the availability of drivers, see the Device Driver Issues section in this article.

    Note: If Windows NT 4.0 or Windows 2000 was installed previously on a mirrored boot partition, see the Other Issues section in this article.
  2. Use the Last Known Good Configuration feature. This may resolve the problem if you recently installed an incompatible device driver for your boot controller. For additional information about using the Last Known Good Configuration feature, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 307852 How To start your computer by using the Last Known Good Configuration feature in Windows XP
  3. Use the Repair option with Windows XP Setup. For additional information about repairing Windows XP by using the Setup program, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 315341 How to perform an in-place upgrade (reinstallation) of Windows XP
  4. Restore a registry backup. For additional information about restoring a registry backup, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 307545 How to recover from a corrupted registry that prevents Windows XP from starting

I have 1gb ddr2 ram 180gb sata hard disk amd dual core proccer i having face problam hang pc startup. slow pc many time & hang use window xp3 please help me.


Goto BIOS of your computer and enable " QUICK BOOT" it will solve your problem. Plus i would personally recommend you to Format your C:\ Drive and reinstall windows (Windows XP SP2 is the best option for fast performance). After you install Windows i would also recommend you to Install any Anti-Virus and Scan your computer for viruses.

Thank you!

How can I wipe out my hard drive on my Acer Extensa 5620z. It has a malware virus..


Place your Windows System disk in the DVD drive and when the menu appears select "replace system" and let it format the drive.
You could of course install an antivirus anti malware programme and attempt to recover your disk.
Follow these links:

The Microsoft one is free.

Your system probably has a virus. The fastest way to solve is to do a new installation of Windows. You would need a bootable CD to format and install Windows.
CAUTION: FORMATTING A HARD DRIVE WOULD ERASE ALL OF YOUR DATA. WHICH WOULD MAKE IT IRRETRIEVABLE.
For further help, please feel to ask me.

Need to factor reset,|NOT REBOOT, for acer aspire 3630 windows xp


Hi and welcome to Fixya..

Reinstalling Windows XP on an Acer Aspire 3000 is fairly straightforward. You may need to reinstall Windows XP due to hardware failure, a virus infection, major hardware changes or a hard drive upgrade. Whatever the reason, you can do the reinstall yourself at home. The reinstall will take anywhere from 1 1/2 to 3 hours, depending on the size of your hard drive. Be aware that reinstalling Windows XP will format your hard drive, getting rid of all data on, so you'll want to back it all up on a media device.
  • Step 1
Back up all data on your computer before reinstalling.
  • Step 2 Insert the Windows XP disk and restart your computer.
  • Step 3 Press any key when prompted to begin running the disk.
  • Step 4 Press F8 to agree to the terms of service.
  • Step 5 Choose the partition you want to reinstall Windows XP on. This is usually "C:" for most users.
  • Step 6 Choose the type of format. You can choose either "Quick" or "Full" for NTFS systems. A quick format only takes a few minutes less than the full format.
  • Step 7 Wait for the format to complete. The Windows XP installation wizard will begin. You will be asked to choose your time zone, computer name, and to input any network information. Otherwise, the reinstall will run by itself.


  • I hope this helps
