Hi, you will have to perform a fresh install, unless you chose the NTFS file system while installing Ubuntu. Follow these steps:

0. ...BACK UP IMPORTANT FILES...
1. Have your windows installation media handy, either on a disc or USB, you can also use factory reset on your laptop but only if you did not format your recovery partition.
2. Insert your media and reboot your computer
3. Press any key when prompted to run setup
4. If you don't see the prompt, restart your computer and press F12 to select boot options. Choose your Optical Drive or USB.
4b. Alternatively you can just change your media boot order from the Bios setup.
5. Let windows setup guide you through the install process. Format disk partitions if necessary.
6. Windows setup will run its course, it may restart your computer a few times, which is okay.
7. Once setup completes you will automatically boot into windows to complete activation and set-up user accounts.

Thanks, All the best

Remove ubuntu with no acess to windows os


If you just installed ubuntu over windows - try updating GRUB bootloader to detect windows.
Ubuntu bootloader may override wiindows boot and you`ll need to get acces to your previous OS through it. Please give some more information on your problem

When a click the logon icon instead of logon to the desktop it just log off. It keeps doing the same for my windows xp computer even if i try to install higher version of windows xp this problem keeps on...


It sounds like this logon/logoff loop problem is created by malware installed on your system. Please see this link and determine if the symptoms described there match your experience. If so, you can follow the steps outlined in that article to remove the offending program. Otherwise, have a look here.& here
I also recommend using these malware removal protocols to cleanse your system of malware that has been inadvertently installed on your computer.
MBAM will clear problems you didn't even know you had.
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

USB mouse won't work under XP in a dual boot Ubuntu GRUB 1.5


It has the latest mouse driver (logitech setpoint 4.0). Before installing Ubuntu the setup worked w/ SUSE/XP using GRUB dual boot. After installing Ubuntu XP does not see the usb mouse. Even Logitech setpoint does not have the mouse setup/configuration option. It appears that at boot it does not recognize the mouse or disables it. The BIOS has the usb keyboard and mouse enabled. Currently, I have two mices one for xp and either mouse will work under Ubuntu.

Ubuntu Sound Problem


MerryAnn, it sounds like any time your CPU does heavy work, you hear sounds..kinda like a buzzing? I would say off hand you have an open input turned up in the mixer.

Rredbare, do you dual boot? and what audio chip or model do you have?

Ubuntu Installation


If your able to see the Windows Setup page, and get as far as your partitions, I would suggest deleting the partitions on the hard drive (make sure you know what your doing before trying this), as Ubuntu is mounted normally on a filesystem which Windows can not read (EXT2/3 for Linux - Fat32 / NTFS for Windows).

Once you have deleted all partitions, you can then create a partition (I'd recommend just clicking Install) and then chose the second option to format (not quick) for NTFS.

This then does a "secure" format of your hard drive, setting you up for a nice stable installation.

Apart from that, why don't you try jumping onto Ubuntuforums.org for Ubuntu Help, since Ubuntu is a much better Operating System (OS) than Windows, and there is a great community for helping people.

Windows XP OEM OS


Yes, you have to purchase a new copy of Windows XP... Or alternatively you can try a freeware operating system such as UBUNTU. It does basically the same stuff your Windows did, just with a little more flair! http://www.ubuntu.com/
