Hello, Yes I think so because if you have a new computer you gonna get problem to find your sata driver when you trying to install your XP, also you need to search and install the drivers manually and that can be hard if you dont have a other computer with network access to Internet. Its the easiast way to get your computer to XP. if you had the restore cds to your computer it should be easy to recovery your computer to XP.

good luck.

Forgot Password. How I can format the HDD ?


The most common way that most of us know on how to reset or clear the BIOS password is to physically remove the power from the computer by disconnecting the power plug and then removing a battery for 30 minutes from the motherboard. Another way is to reset the clear CMOS jumper on the motherboard itself. Both of the 2 methods mentioned works because most motherboards use a battery to sustain the BIOS/CMOS settings for the motherboards PROM chip. So by cutting off the battery power, the BIOS/CMOS settings will be erased.

Under the keyboard or bottom of laptop - If you are working on a laptop computerthe location of the dipswitch (almost never a jumper) can be under the keyboard or on the bottom of the laptop in a compartment such as the memory compartment.

If it fails, then try to remove the battery for at least one hour.

click start control panel Open User Accounts in Control Panel. On the Users tab, click the name of the user whose password you want to change, and then click Reset Password. In New password and Confirm new password, type the new password, and then click OK. Notes You can change passwords only for local computer accounts, such as guest, administrator, or accounts you create for your computer. You cannot change your network logon password in User Accounts. To change your own password, press CTRL ALT DELETE and then click Change Password

My computer using Win XP SP2 and toshiba MK8025GAS hard disk (80GB) is not booting up due to virus problem. I remove the harddisk and used connected it using SATA/USB cable to my Win Vista laptop. I run...


If it were my computer, I would purchase a new 320GB disk-drive, and connect it. Then, I would re-install Windows onto this NEWER, BIGGER, FASTER, disk-drive, and then install free anti-virus software: http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials and then use that SATA/USB cable to copy files/E-mail/music/contacts from the "old" disk-drive onto the new 'C:' drive.

It's like having the police returning your STOLEN car to you. You should:
* check for sugar in the gas-tank
* check for cut brake-lines
* check for lack of oil in engine, transmission, differential
* check for lack of antifreeze
* check for drugs hidden in the door-panels or trunk (or anywhere else)

You should *NOT* just assume that your car is OK, and drive it away!

Similarly, you can NEVER be sure that you have deleted 100% of the "damage" done by the computer-virus. So, a "fresh" install, from "trusted" media, is the "best practises" methodology.

WDDM service not running. It's only happening to my new computer, my old one opens the 1 Tb hard drive just fine. What gives?


Im guessing since you didnt clarify that your NEW computer is running Windows 7 and the old one is running XP or an early version of Vista. The WDDM service software is picky with windows 7. You should download DirectX 11 and update the wddm drivers to 1.1 from the microsoft website.

How to partion seagate Free Agent Pro in Windows XP


First make sure that you have a bootable Windows Vista installation DVD, as you will be unable to use your computer if you don’t. Next, download the GParted Live CD and burn it to cd.
Boot off the GParted cd, and you will see your hard drives in the drop-down list. The first drive is typically your boot drive, but you can check the Flags column to make sure.


Next you’ll need to right-click on the partition and choose Resize/Move from the menu.


Now you can either use the New Size textbox, or just click and drag the partition to make it smaller (or bigger). When you are done, click the Resize/Move button.This doesn’t immediately apply the changes, though. You can make other changes to your partitions and then when you are finished click the Apply button.Depending on the amount of data and the speed of your computer, it can take quite a while to resize the partitions. On my computer it took more than 30 minutes.


Once it’s done, quit, remove the live cd and then reboot your computer. Unless you are very lucky, you’ll be greeted with this horrible error message saying “Windows Failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause.”
Hope this helps!

I need to transfer files from my old Vista PC to my new XP laptop


Hi,
To my knowledge you cannot change back to XP from a Vista installation. You will need an original XP CD and do the installation from scratch.
Don't hesitate to ask me further questions regarding this.
Best wishes,

Hard drive not recognized by vista or xp


Did you go to microsoft and try to see if you could update any drivers or software that might help you? it's free (microsoft.com) It couldn't hurt to try, have microsoft scan for updates, and it will come up with a list of what's needed or required. Also on your computer, under control panel, updates, make sure you turn off automatic install and allow you to pick what you would like to install. hope it helps, e-mail at tallcoolone100@yahoo.com

Unable to install driver software


There is a problem with this drive and windows vista. Unfortunately both these companies will throw you the run around (Microsoft says talk to Kingston, Kingston says talk to microsoft. It is definetly a Vista issue. There is no driver you can find for vista. I would recommend replacing it with one that you know is compatible with Vista or wait til this problem is fixed. Will work in XP just fine.
Thanks,
Lee

Hard Drive Problem


Greetings...

You have 3 paths to look at and you also need to think about the need to change out Vista for XP...

Vista has gotten a bad rap on being something that does not work... it works fine... unless you have some very old program that you have to have for your job, Vista will work just fine...

Now... 1. you can install a boot manager and have both Vista and XP on your computer... 2. you can reformate you HD and install XP, you have an XP disk and code??? 3. you can run Virtual PC on Vista and install XP, still need the disk and code...
Virtual PC will allow you to fire up XP and run it as a separate program on top of Vista... and it's a free download...

Still I would look at just why you need to change... I have been running Vista since before it came out and other than a couple of programs in the beginning were a problem, everything works just great...

Have a great day...
