How do I make Dell 530s boot and load windows?


Are there any sets of audio 'beeps' that occur during startup? If you get anything other than a single beep during startup, it could indicate an error code for hardware failure detected during the POST phase of bootup.

If you have recovery or Windows installation CD's, try pressing F12, go to the bootup menu and try booting from the CD.

Look at the bootup menu and see if there is a hard drive as one of the options. If the hard drive is not there, or if you try to boot from the hard drive from that menu and you get error messages, that might indicate something wrong with the hard drive.

If you can boot from the CD, you may be able to use the Windows Recovery Manager to restore Windows on your hard drive, if the hard drive is working. There may also be a recovery partition on the drive that will allow you to recover Windows, but beware that files on the hard drive may be lost when you use the recovery partition.

If you have files on the hard drive you need to recover, you may be able to remove the hard drive, put it on an USB drive adapter, and use another PC to copy files off of the old drive, even if it cannot boot the old computer. After you have recovered your files, you can try the recovery partition or format the drive and use Windows install disks to restore Windows to the drive.

Vista Home Prem. trouble with SoundMax Audio/Adi1986A620.6200


I lost my driver (after a chrash) for the soundcard. After searching desperately for hours through all kinds of sites, I did some thinking. I started up my desktop, went to Configurationscreen and chose Hardware and sounds. Within this section I went to Device control and selected: Adjust drivers. I put the motherboard CD in the PC and indicated in the wizzard "look in map BIN". It worked! I have now installed the driver: SoundMAX Integrated Digital HD Audio, HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_11D4&DEV_1986&SUBSYS_1043818F&REV_1005
HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_11D4&DEV_1986&SUBSYS_1043818F
Hope it can help someone out there;

My PC somehow deleted it's own cd/dvd driver. Possibly from a virus that has been eradicated already. Any idea where I can download one from that will work with the dimension 2200?


Hello,
You should first run the add new hardware wizzard, looking specifically for CD-ROM/DVD-ROM drives. If the drive is not defective Windows will most certainly detect it and install the appropriate drivers.

To run Add new hardware wizzard, Go to Control Panel, On the left (WIN XP) choose classic view. Find the Add New Hardware icon and click on it. Allow the wizzard to install driver automatically, allow it to go tho the Internet if necessary.

Hope it helps.

Trouble with my new acer aspire desktop computer


Slow boot problems on any computers are due to 2 reasons :
(1) Hardware reasons and
(2)Software reasons

(TRY THE SOLUTION MENTIONED FOR SOFTWARE FIRST, IF THAT DOES NOT HELP, ONLY THEN TRY THE HARDWARE SOLUTION)

HARDWARE REASONS> if your system has less RAM (memory) then it can cause slow boot up issues,
SOLUTION FOR HARDWARE > I recommend you to check the amount of memory on your system., to check the memory on your system , click on start , then "right click" on "my computer " icon and select properties.. on the screen you will the the amount of RAM installed. I recommend 1 GB of RAM on a computer.

SOFTWARE REASONS> These can be a problem with the windows XP operating system.
SOLUTION FOR SOFTWARE> perform the steps as mentioned in the following links :

All the best

When booting system I get message: Hardware Monitor found an error. Enter power setup


this is a sign that your cmos battery needs replacing on the motherboard its a cr2032 flat disc shaped battery and normally resides near the memory slots. The battery being flat is losing all the hardware and bios settings, F1 just passes this check and allows a boot, you will probably find the time and date is incorrect which is a sure sign of battery problems
