Good day, i have a laptop that i purchased with Ubuntu 12.04 pre-installed i now wish to change to win 8.1 but i dont know how to do it please assist, ive tried everything i could think of


My Suggestion would be to stick with Ubuntu. Windows 8.1 will be much slower on the same computer.

However, if you do really need Windows, my suggestion would be do run it under Ubuntu using VirtualBox (free) and then install the Extension pack which you can download from the Tools menu, when you have your OS running. This then gives you full screen. For your communications, make sure that your network adapter has been set to 'Bridged'

My Western Digital Scorpio Blue 250GB on my Dell Inspiron 9300 lost its boot sector 4 times during the last 6 months. Reinstalled Windows XP every time and then its working for a few weeks and lost it...


Instead of installing Windows XP every time, you can just restore your boot sector in the Windows XP Recovery Console. Here's how to get to the Recovery Console:

1. Put your Windows XP CD into your computer. Restart your computer and boot into the CD (a message should display "Press Any Key to Boot" or something similar). If you cannot boot into the CD, you will need to adjust your BIOS setting to use the CD drive as the first boot priority.

2. After the CD is finished loading, press "R" to go into the Recovery Console.

3. When prompted, enter the administrator password. If there's no password, just hit enter

4. Then enter "fixboot [drive]" (without quotations) where [drive] is the hard drive Windows XP is installed.

For example: fixboot c:

5. Type "exit" and Enter to escape the Recovery Console and restart your computer

Hope this helps!!!

Missing drvmain.sdb file from xp home, cannot boot. recovery console does not help.(chkdsk ) any ideas?


If it just disappeared then you may have a bad HD on your hands.

Try to load your xp disk again and do a repair instead.

You would pretend like your installing xp and when it starts to seek out your HD it will say if found a curropted version of xp and can repair it if you want.

Toshiba external harddrive recovery HELP!


Well, formatting(generally quick format or complete format) won't make the data erased permanently. In your case the MOST effective way is to try some so-called data recovery software.

First of ALL - Connect your hard drive to your personal computer. And install this software Wondershare Data Recovery on the computer in order to perform data recovery. Get the program from its site.
data recovery (for Windows OS)
Mac data recovery (for Mac OS X)

Good luck. I hope that my reply has shed some light on the problem! Remember - Always make Backups of your precious data!

Blue Screen


OK, so I took out the added RAM, changed the internal RAM to a new 1GB stick. The machine booted, windows started, I logged on, then blue screen. I put the old internal RAM back in, changed the hard drive, same result. This test suggests that the RAM is fine as is the hard drive as the blue screen appeared with different hardware. My next step is to replace the motherboard as the appears to be the issue. I'll let you know how I get on.

Samsung 200gb hdd


When u bought a new hdd, it shud not have any partition on it. but in ur case, I assume u have formatted it to ntfs but no operating system is installed in it.

If u want to make the new hdd as slave and have another old hdd as primary, that have already an operating system installed in it, then the problem shud be hdd boot priority in bios. Enter ur bios and check for hdd boot priority and put the old hdd to the top most order, then restart. this shud fix the problem.

If u installed OS in ur new hdd (win xp),
1) ntldr or ntdetect.com is missing on root dir. (c:\). If u have another computer that works and have xp installed, just put this new hdd along with the current hdd and boot to windows. Copy ntldr and ntdetect.com to your new hdd. Or another way is just repair using windows xp boot cd.
2)the windows partition is not set 'active'. to set active, boot into winxp setup and press 'r'. this will lead to recovery console. type ur passwrod for admin (def=none). use diskpart command to set active. for easy way, put the new hdd to another computer. boot to windows. rightclick my computer, choose manage. on left pane select disk manager. rightclick on ur partition, then set active.

Hope this help
