Easy. put it in and shut down. remember to back up everything first, or just burn everything you can.
when the pc starts, if it automatically fires up windows the bios has been set to run from harddrive. shut down and when restarting either del or F2 will get into bios.
go thro each page until you see the part on 1st boot device. some will set it to harddrive. bad move. get the first boot device to cd rom, second to your harddrive. save and restart.
the cd will boot and you will get either the logo, or do you want to boot from cd rom
hit return and carry on.
now. when windows shuts down do not touch a thing unless you have to, the screen do you want to boot from cd rom will come up. dont, let it carry on and you will reinstall all the functions of the cd rom
how do i know this, well, my main pc has been rebooted 35 times so far, good old viruses and trogens.
how would we learn without them at all.
oh. when windows wants to load windows it will reconise the origional windows. a point here. if you need to get all the info off a computer, do not load onto the origional windows but make a second system of windows. it will warn you about 2 operation systems. but if you need to recover some things, do it.
also. you know these cheap mp3 players. the one gig ones. they are fantastic to use as removable drives and for a tenner, you get a storage device, also a mp3 player.
now one point. if you had a fault with windows, or a virus or worm, reinstalling windows on the partition will not work.
follow the on screen to delete the partition. it will ask about 3 times are you sure, the last one is press L to delete. do this and remake the partition.
then install windows.
The real safe way is to use a win 98 boot disc. but i found no problems doing it this way.
if you have another mc, make it a slave and format the whole drive.
i hope this helps you

I have an Evesham Evolution desktop with Windows XP SP2 product recovery disc. I want to reformat the drives and carry out full "clean" install and reload all software. I insert the recovery...


It sound like you have a recovery disk not an install disk. The recovery disk you have just lets you repair windows only. If you insert the disk after windows starts and it runs you can then try to back up what you want and delete what you don't want, then run a windows repair. Its the only option, My other suggestion is to purchase Windows 7 and do a clean install.

I would like to know if my evesham pc has recovery/reload as it came preloaded when purchased? i am unsure of the model as i have misplaced the manual.


You can try pressing the F12 key and see if it gives you the option to boot from the recovery partition. If you are unable to boot from recovery partition or if there is no recovery partition, you will need to purchase recovery CD's. Good luck. I hope this helps. Have a good day.

Sony desktop vaio computer keeps saying missing operating system


Your operating system is currupted. You will need to repair it or restore it, if your sony desktop came with a recovery/repair cd. If it did, insert the disc, turn on the computer, set boot priority either in your bios (boot options) or the startup screen to dvd/cd rom, and follow instruction. If it didn't come with a recovery/restore disc, you are in trouble, and will need a full windows installation via a windows operating disc.

C0000139 Entry Point not Found computer will not boot-up.


Hi,

Are you getting this error with RPCRT4.DLL. If you do you need to replace this file from the Xp disk.
If you cannot follow, send me a message at rocksmani@gmail.com and hope we can talk over gmail or skype and i'll guide you through.

It may be difficult for you to do it.But if you could do, here the steps are :--
1.Use the Windows XP Recovery Console to replace the RPCRT4.dll file with the original version. To do this, follow these steps:
Insert your Windows XP CD-ROM into the computer's CD-ROM drive or DVD-ROM drive, and then restart your computer from the CD-ROM.
Some computers may require that you modify the basic input/output system (BIOS) settings before you can start the computer from a CD-ROM. For information about how to modify BIOS, see your computer documentation.
At the Welcome to Setup screen, press R to start the Recovery Console.
Press the number key that corresponds to the installation that you want to repair, and then press ENTER.
Type the Administrator password, and then press ENTER.
With the Windows XP CD-ROM still in the CD-ROM drive or DVD-ROM drive, type the following commands, pressing ENTER after each command:
cd system32
ren RPCRT4.dll RPCRT4.old
CD-ROM_or_DVD-ROM_Drive_Letter:
cd \i386
expand RPCRT4.dl_ BootDriveLetter:\windows\system32
exit

It'll fix your problem. :-)

Compaq evo d500 won't start up and won't let me access boot menu. just keeps saying keyboard fault even when another keyboard is used


press f10 during startup , when the bios open, look for the setting "halt on" . it will have a choice of keyboard, all errors or no errors , set it on "no errors" save and reboot. that may fix it.
You could also get another keyboard (neighbors or a new one) and test to see if a new keyboard solves the issue without recovering your system.
you can also use the recovery CD that came with your system:
USING THE RECOVERY CONSOLE TO REPAIR DAMAGED

computer.
1. Insert the Windows 2000 or Windows XP CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive.
2. Click Start > Shut Down, then select Restart from the drop-down list.
3. In the Shut Down Windows dialog, click OK.
4. Press any key to start the computer from the CD-ROM drive when you are prompted to do so.
5. On the Welcome to Setup page, press R.
