Hello,

What Operating System version are you running in the old and in the new computer?

If you are running Windows XP, then you can use the "Transfer my files and settings" built in feature.

You can learn more in:

Hope it helps.

Best regards,
Eduardo

Did you partition the hard drive ? Make sure that it is compatible .Some HP computers will only allow you to use certain products and you can not upgrade\downgrade or change an operating system .Try going online on another computer and see if the devices in your netbook can be changed or upgraded.

Replace hard drive motherboard


Before you start replacing drive you need to ask yourself if you are trying to replace a bad hard drive and just want to start with a clean install of the O.S. OR are you replacing your hard drive with a bigger one and wish to keep your installed programs, data and documents. If you want to keep your data and documents you need to know how to save the Files and folders on your computer to a CD, DVD or a USB hard drive. Just replacing the hardware involves unplugging all cables from computer after shutting it down. Then opening the case and unplugging the cables from the hard drive and then remove the screw(s) retaining the hard drive. Remove the old hard drive from the case and replace it with the new one, replace screws and plug cables back up watching that that the connectors are correctly aligned with the key(s) on the hard drive's sockets. Replacing the Hard drive also involves installing the O.S. and all your programs and applications on the new hard drive. You can find a lot of information in the internet about this.

I dont have a laptop or the same computer but I have the same problem. However my problem is even more painful as my computer wont frickin recognize my keyboard. So I cant enter BIOS or boot the Windows...


You're not using a wireless keyboard that could have a "dead" battery inside????

Check that the keyboards (PS/2 and USB) work in some other desktop computer.

Disconnect the disk-drive's "data" cable.

Hold down any key on the keyboard, and then turn your computer on, hoping to generate a "keyboard error; press any key to enter BIOS setup" message.
Now, does the keyboard work?

Insert the Windows CD-ROM.
Startup your computer, and it should boot from the CD-ROM (since the disk-drive is not accessible).

Eventually, it will "pause", and ask for keyboard input.

Try each keyboard, and see if either keyboard works.

If not, then your motherboard is the cause of your problems, and needs to be replaced.

HELP ME


hi there my friend,

we have the hard way and then we have the easy way...

the hard way is to bootup with your bootable xp cd .follow the installation guide ..then.put in your key when you get the chance to ..and finish the installation. then apply service pack 2 to your installation .. and you're done...

the easy way would be to make a Slipstream Windows XP Service Pack 2 CD....which you can use each time you need to fix your system.

1 - Download the (full) "Network Install" of the Service Pack (English version [266 MB]), and save it to a directory (folder) on your hard drive (in my case D:\XP-SP2). Other languages can be downloaded from the Microsoft Download Web site.

Note: do not use spaces in the folder name!

2 - copy your Windows XP CD to your hard drive. Just create a folder (I used \XP-CD), and copy all the contents of your Windows XP CD in that folder.

3 - , open a Command Prompt (Start > Run > cmd), and go to the folder where you downloaded SP2 (cd \foldername). Type the command: servicepack filename /integrate:drive/path. In my example the command is WindowsXP-KB835935-SP2-ENU /integrate:D:\XP-CD.

Extract SP2 files

If you get the error:

This service pack can't be integrated error

This is caused by the fact that your Windows XP CD contains updates that will be automatically installed when you run setup. This type of CD's will usually be from larger OEM suppliers (like Dell, HP, or others).

You cannot use this type of CD to create a slipstreamed SP2 install.

First, the files will be extracted, and next they will be integrated in your Windows XP files:

Updating Windows Share

When ready, you should get a confirmation. Windows XP Service Pack 2 has now been Slipstreamed into your original Windows XP files.

Slipstream Completed


Creating a Bootable CD

For this part I used IsoBuster and Nero Burning ROM 6

After you install IsoBuster, you can choose to use only the product's free functionality for what we want to do, IsoBuster will look like the image below (you need to have your original Windows XP CD in the CD-ROM drive).

Start to extract the boot loader from the original Windows XP CD. Using IsoBuster, select the "folder" Bootable CD, and right-click Microsoft Corporation.img. From the menu choose Extract Microsoft Corporation.img, and extract it to the folder on your hard drive where you have your Windows XP files (D:\XP-CD in my case).

Extract Boot Image

Next, start Nero Burning ROM, and choose CD-ROM (Boot) in the New Compilation window. On the Boot tab, select Image file under Source of boot image data, and browse to the location of the Microsoft Corporation.img file. Also enable Expert Settings, choosing No Emulation, and changing the Number of loaded sectors to 4 (otherwise it won't boot!)

Nero Boot Settings

The ISO tab should be configured correctly as shown below:

Nero ISO Settings

If you have an older version of Nero you won't have the option Do Not Add ";1" ISO file version extention under Relax ISO Restrictions. You won't be able to boot your new CD, so update Nero!
You can configure the Label tab to your liking, I would however recommend that you keep the Volume Label the same as on your original Windows XP CD. Here are some (English) Labels:

* Windows XP Professional: WXPCCP_EN
* Windows XP Home: WXHCCP_EN
* Windows XP Professional OEM: WXPOEM_EN
* Windows XP Home OEM: WXHOEM_EN

Nero Label Settings

Next press New, and from the File Browser window, select the files and folders from your slipstreamed location (in my case D:\XP-CD). Now drag & drop the selected files in the ISO1 window.

Copy Files

Next, burn your new CD.

Burn

You now have a Bootable, Slipstreamed Windows XP Service Pack 2 CD!

DVD's reading and writing problems


Two things you can check. First, whenever you burn a DVD or CD you must be sure to "close" or "finalize" the disc. Often this is done automatically, but double-check to make sure. If the disc was left "open" so that more files could be added later then it will probably only play on the computer that burned it. Second, there are some DVD drives that just won't read every type of recordable disc. Ask your friend to burn a DVD-R instead of a DVD+R and try to play it on your computer. Or, check if his DVD+R recording plays OK on other computers. If so, your DVD drive may be faulty and need replacing. Good luck.

Major PC Crash!!!!!


what operating system are you using? If its windows xp and you are using your factory restore discs, you might want to try using a normal windows xp disc and doing a fresh install. Another option is that your hard drive is bad or is going bad. I would download the ultimate boot cd and run seatools off the ubcd. Check your hard drive to see if its still ok.
