    What model and MFG is it?

    The reason it does not see the hard drive is probably the hard drive is a SATA drive (serial drive). Xp will not see the dive unless you have the SATA driver disk.

To get it to recognise the hard drive you simply need to press F2 at the first boot screen to go to the bios menu. Move across to the options related to the hard drive and change the AHCI option to disabled. Exit saving your changes and when it reboots it will detect your hard drive and let you proceed with the installation.

Need to reinstall Windows XP on my Eee 900HA


Bill,
If you havent just replaced your hard drive or formatted it, try restoring from the restore partition. I have a newer ASUS netbook, so yours i believe should restore by rebooting the laptop and repeatedly pressing the F9 key. Do not hold down the F9 key, just keep tapping it when it starts up.

Follow prompts to restore your laptop to its original configuration when you first purchased it. Make sure to back up all your data, as it will be lost along with all programs and updates that have been installed since day 1.

If you have replaced the laptop or formatted it, then youll need to either attach a USB CD/DVD ROM drive or use a USB Flash drive. That method is much more involved, but can be done as long as you have a copy of a Windows XP CD.

Hello, i have a acer aspire 6920g and it doesn't start up it does come up with stuff but it says, Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt :...


As soon as you power up your laptop, keep tapping F8 until another screen pops up. Select reinstall windows / restore factory settings (Should be an option to reset your computer back to factory settings)
Any data on your computer will be lost during this process.....
This will reinstall the windows you already have on your hard drive and will not require a disk.

Hope this helps and please rate, thanks

My motherboard for my laptap MX6025 was damage, now I am replacing them for a new one and would order via online. How do I install this to my windows xp, what requirements do i need such as drivers,...


If your hard drive is still working fine, you shouldn't need to reinstall Windows again. Most of the time your PC will perform as it did before your motherboard died by simply reinstalling the original hard drive.
If not then do this.
Reinstall windows with your restore CD, and with most gateway laptops you should have a drivers and applications CD that restores your motherboard drivers and applications to their original locations.

If you lost your drivers CD, you can download them all here.

When asked, you should allow XP updates so that Service Pack 3 can install. This will add a few windows based drivers to your laptop that may be necessary for better video, audio and wireless performance.

Your restore CD may not ask for your CD Key, this is typical for a Vendors original restoration, but if for some reason it does, the number on the back of your laptop will work. Mine validated just fine.

I HAVE AN EEE PC AND KEEP GETTING AN ERROR MESSAGE SAYING 'EEE PC TRAY UTILITY HAS ENCOUNTERED A PROBLEM. ERROR TYPE:BEX P1:AsTRAY.EXE P2:5.1.13018 P3:4886b209 P4:AsTRAY.EXE P5:5.1.1.3018


first make a image of the partition using norton ghost. (you cand find it on a hirens boot cd), next uninstall the tray utility. if it is still the same problem, try reinstalling the operating system. if not reinstall the utility and see if it works. if it doesn't works and you don't want to reinstall the operating system, remake your partion from the image created initially using norton ghost
