Sounds like dovidl2120, you have a non-bootable disc in the drive. Remove it and the problem should go away.

Did system restore,then it wouldnt load uo firt said wininet.dll missing,i fixed that but now urmol.dllmissing,the usb not working or cd,says something loke rundal dave something not found,can you please...


I have read through your comments and it looks like your Operating System (OS) is corrupted.

You can use that XP installation CD Service Pack 1 to install a new copy of Windows XP, then later upgrade to service pack 2 or 3 depending on your choice.

How ever, the errors that have been developed in your OS could simply be fixed by upgrading your service pack, to service pack 3.
Follow this link to download service pack 3.

If it fails to install or if it fails ti fix the errors, you will have to make a new installation of Windows XP using the CD you have, then upgrade to Service pack 2 after the installation.

Follow this link to download service pack 2, which you will download and install after you have installed a new OS.

Now, to install Windows XP, follow the steps below that i have provided.
How ever, i would advise you to back up all your data, on the desktop and in the My Documents folder to an external location like an empty CD,or flash drive or to a different partition, to prevent data loss.
After data backup, follow these steps to install Windows XP.

Below is the detailed procedure of installing Microsoft Windows XP:
  • Before installing Windows XP or any other operating system, you should backup all your data. Data can be backed up on a separate partition, if the hard disk is partitioned or you can back it up on external storage devices like CDs or on a network.
  • Restart the computer and go to the Setup menu by pressing F2 and change the first boot device to CD, press Esc and save settings.
  • Insert the CD labeled Microsoft Windows XP into the computer and restart the computer.
  • When the pc restarts, a message will appear telling you to press any key to boot from CD, press a key immediately the message appears and the setup process will begin.
  • After the files have been loaded, Windows will start and it will give you an option of repairing using Recovery Console by pressing “R” or continue with setup by pressing “ENTER”; press enter to continue with setup.
  • Setup will list all your disk partitions, highlight the partition where you want to install Windows, this is mainly partition “C”, press “D” to delete the partition, then press “L” to confirm.
  • Highlight the partition you deleted, and then press “C” to create a new partition, press “ENTER” to create the partition.
  • Press “ENTER” again to install Windows on the New (Raw) Partition you have created.
  • Format the partition using NTFS file system.
  • After format has completed, Windows will restart and setup will prompt you to boot from CD again. Ignore the message and let setup continue automatically.
  • Follow the next steps which will ask you to setup the system Time and Date, Network and enter a serial key, until setup finishes.
  • After setup has finished, Windows will restart and will welcome you for the first time; Microsoft Windows XP will have successfully been installed on your computer.
Thank you for using Fixya,

Have a acer aspire m5640 computer and am trying to put in vista operating system because it has no operationg system but it will not run disk

Your CD-ROM or DVD rom is not fast enough to load the operating system. Or it could be that your system can't support vista. If you can borrow a external drive that would be a start.

HP Pavillion dv8000--blue screens on boot up

Try this for a fix....

Windows Start-up Errors
Step one, you need a Windows Installation CD. If you only have a recovery disk set like the ones from HP or Compaq they will not do what you need done. Under normal circumstances however, you can use a Dell disk because the Operating system is on a stand-alone disk. All retail versions are also acceptable as well as upgrade disks. For a rule of thumb, if the disk has the Microsoft hologram it should work.
While the computer is first starting up and you see the manufacturers splash screen, tap F12 (some computers it’s F9, others it may be another key, you may have to watch and see if the computer lists the key strokes for getting to the boot menu. If you still cannot find it, boot into the BIOS settings and change your boot order there. Save your settings and exit, the computer will now seek the cd rom as its boot source first.
Place your Windows disk in the computer and start it up. When you see the test at the top of the page “Press Any Key To Boot From CD” Just hit the space bar to activate. The next screen you will see will most likely be a Windows setup screen, when you see this press the “R” key to get to the recovery console. It will get there, it may take a little time, patience. Once it loads you will be given a choice of Windows installations, there should only be one, if there are more, always pick number one. It may ask for an administrators password, if you have not set this particular password, then just leave it blank and press enter. The next prompt you see is:
You need to type the following:
cd \
hit enter. Pay close attention to the spacing between the characters. There is a space between the character “d” and the “\”
You are now at the ROOT of the drive, this is where basic commands can be given and changed. You should now see the following:
Now type the following:
Hit the enter key.
The chkdsk /r command also includes the P command and will also look for lost recoverable information in bad sectors.
There are occasions depending on how corrupt the system is, that this process could take several hours, so be patient with it.
Now, after chkdsk has run type the following:
Hit the enter key.
It may prompt you with a warning, that’s ok, just continue. When fixboot has finished, type: EXIT hit enter and windows will reboot. When the system reboots, tap the F8 key during this time and you will see the multi-boot menu come up. Scroll to the title “Last Know Good Configuration” and hit the enter key. If you were having some simple drive errors this should have fixed them.
If the above does not can remove the hard drive, get an EIDE / SATA to USB adapter, attach the adapter to the hard drive and plug the usb end of the cable to another computer. The computer will read it as an external hard drive and you can then get all your files that you need.

Can't boot my new hard drive or off of CD with my ThinkPad T40. Boot error pxe e61 pxe m0f errors even after changing the boot sequence in the bios.

the CD may not be bootable... use an original CD, not a copy, even it it works on other computers.
Your laser lens may be dirty and can't read / track correctly.

Try compressed air if you can't locate an original CD, or if the CD is original...

Laptop won't boot up.

You don't need dos prompt to format the HDD. You said you already tried to reinstall XP so I would assume you have a Windows XP boot disk. During the initial start up of the Windows XP installation from the CD you should be prompted with an option to format and/or re partition your hard drive.
Firstly however you should check in BIOS if you have an option under boot to "Try other boot devices" and if it is enabled plus make sure your HDD is set to the first position of boot order.
If you have any USB drivers plugged in disconnect them and try again.
If all this is to no avail your HDD or motherboard might be damaged. Try and replace the HDD see if that works.

Hope any of these help.

No bootable cd in atapi cd rom drive when i boot my laptop and also says media test failure check cable

if you can remove your cd drive there should be a button that you can hold to one side to take it out - if your laptop is not under warranty then there may also be some screws you can remove to take the cd drive out and re insert it to make sure its seated firmly.

Also just a simple thing - you have not left any cd in the drive have you ?

Sometimes if i forget to set the bootable order back to booting from the hard drive and I have the cd drive set to the bootable drive only and there is a disc in the drive or nothing in the drive it will display that so may be worth while checking your bios to see what boot order it has and disable the cd drive as the bootable drive if its in the list and set your hard drive to be the bootable device.
