Asking for system disk; inserted recovery disk but did not work is system disk different from recovery disk

Yes, system disk is different. If you put in a recovery disk and it still didn't work, your hard drive has failed. You'll need to replace the drive, then put in the recovery disk.

I would suggest taking it to someone who knows what they're doing, since it involves getting into the case and replacing parts.

Think Point!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! All these solutions sound nice. The problem is that even in "Safe Mode with Networking" I cant access anything on the computer that includes the start menu. So I cant install...

One way:
* remove the disk-drive from your computer
* install a different disk-drive (any old, 4GB or larger, disk-drive will work)
* install Windows onto that disk
* install anti-virus software onto that disk
* reconnect the previous disk-drive as a "slave" disk-drive
* launch the anti-virus software, targetting that "slave" disk-drive
* shutdown
* disconnect the different disk-drive
* boot from the original disk-drive, now that it is virus-free

Can't get the verbatim super mini RF wireless optical to work

There should either be a paring button on each device or at least one of the. According to the website there is no need for 3rd party drivers so technically yes it is plug and play. As for the disk - I think it is a DVD disk and you have only got a CD rom - otherwise spray the disk with window cleaner like Windex. I have tried this and it works -makes the disk easier to read. Also don't discount good old saliva [ I know - who knew] - making the disk readable mean you must have a DVD player if that is what the install disk is.

Computer hard drive

Try the disk in another computer.
If the other computer can read the disk, then the disk-reader in your computer is the problem.

Carefully insert a disk into your computer, noting which way the labelling on the disk is pointing.
Close the disk-drawer.
When the light goes out, open the drawer.
If the labelling is still pointing the same way,
the drive probably has _NOT_ spun the disk at all -- bad news.

Iomega zip drive Z100ATAPI returns error message: "Insert Disk into drive H:" even though there is a disk in it. It is recognized by the system and Device Manager in Windwos XP says the drive is...

Just because the device manager says the drive is working fine doesn't mean it is. If it won't recognize the ZIP disk, either the disk itself is bad or the zip drive is bad. I would try another zip disk and see if it will read a known good zip disk.

Is this a USB hard drive?
If so do any USB devices work?
Check Disk Manager (STart Menu - My Computer - right-click - Manage - DIsk Manager) - Can you see hard disk?
If so right cick on hard disk and set a drive letter for it in Disk Manager.

Disk boot failure

sounds like a hard disk drive problem. If you are comfortable with working inside your computer, you can open the case and remove the cables to the hard disk, and re-connect them again firmly.
