SOME THINGS TO CONSIDER. HAVE YOU DEFRAGGED LATELY? HAVE YOU GONE TO START>RUN>MSCONFIG>ENTER AND GONE TO STARTUP AND DISABLED MOST EVERYTHING BUT MAYBE ANTI VIRUS SOFTWARE? THESE SHOULD SPEED UP LOGIN AND BOOT TIME. WINDOWS LIKES TO BOOT EVERYTHING UNDER THE SUN UNLESS YOU DISABLE THE PROGRAMS YOU DON'T HAVE TO HAVE RIGHT AT STARTUP. DOING THIS SHOULD SOLVE YOUR PROBLEM.

When I attach a next hard disk drive it doesnot work


You need to be running Windows XP, Vista, or 7.

You will need at least 1GB of RAM and a USB port.

Your computer looks to be very slow. I think this is the reason why it does not work.

You need an OS/ Operating System. Windows etc...

Take care!

Hi I got bluescreen when am install window xp


There would usually be information on the blue screen to help us diagnose the problem but there is more comment that needs to be made. If you still have just the 128M of ram and the 10G hard drive then forget installing xp. xp needs a minimum of 1G ram to work in and that is the maximum your machine can hold. Secondly, the 10G hard drive will only just work when you have got SP2 & 3 installed - there will be no room left for anything else.

Additionally, this machine will be quite slow with a P3 processor running at 733M but it's your choice.

If you want to install xp on this machine I would suggest getting the ram to maximum and a larger hard drive installed before continuing. If you have already done this then please get back to us with any error message that may be on the blue screen.

Dell Optiplex GX50 won't load windows OS


Which cdrom is it? Is it a windows XP cd? This is an older PC? Does it have a floppy disk drive? Try downloading from Barts a bootable floppy disk, set boot order to floppy in BIOS, change to cdrom drive letter after booting to floppy (D:?)
got to I386 folder and set up from there.
More info would be helpful.

Computer saying error loading operating system


You can configure your boot setup from your bios screen (for dell, either F11 or F12) then set up your optical drive as your 1st priority then, save settings. After that, you need to insert your windows XP cd in order for it to boot.

inform me of what happened after you have done this.

Windows xp will not install


The times I have had this happen, it was a bad hard drive.
Even though you said you just replaced it, it could be a defective unit.
The problem happens when it cannot write the MBR (Master Boot Record) and it begins the format all over again. Or it hit a dead spot in the disk, and starts over.
I've had it happen at least 20 times (I'm a Sys Admin for a company).
Depending on the size of the drive, you may want to experiment by creating a smaller partition (like 10GB) and see what it does. If it blows up on a smaller partition, it is the MBR, if it works, it's a dead spot elsewhere on the disk.

1.5GB of RAM is plenty, unless you are doing hardcore gaming, or HD number crunching.
Yes, the 2400 is an older unit, but they are workhorses, and seem to run forever. (My daughter has one that is 7 years old, and it still runs every day).

Reg:video card upgradation


Should not be a problem. Install the hardware and then when the system detects it, load only the drivers for an XP from the cd. There are other programs on the cd, but do not load them untill U know the whole system is working properly. U may want to consider adding more ram as faster video requires more ram, suggest 1Gb. and remember that windows is a disk dependant system, the higher percentage of the hard drive U use, the poopier the system runs. Suggest jumping to a 250 Gb harddrive and never worry about it again.
