When i turn my laptop on it wont load any thing it comes on saying problem loading operating system my lap top is compaq armada m300 thank you hope you can help


Try going in to the bios. I think it's power on and start tapping F2. See if your hard drive is there. If not, your hard drive died and you need a new one. If its there, try re-installing XP without formatting the drive. Hope you backed up your computer either way.

I purchased a PNY USB 2.0 Drive and loaded it on my Lap Top PC for memory storage and I am unable to store any documents with that device. I have Windows XP and high speed internet


it should be like any other usb stick... when you plug it in does a window pop up... chose open and a window should open just like your hard drive ... drag and drop files you wish to save into it space permitting of course.

REINSTALL XP HOME EDITION ON Compaq Presario SR1350NX Desktop PC


Files copy errors during the XP installation process are often an indication of BAD RAM.

If you have dual RAM modules, try install with 1 memory module installed

Because the user settings on your old computer with the hard drive installed as master were password protected, your getting the error.

There may be other work arounds I don't know of, I just do a general search, files and folders, and then direct it to look in E:/

WD 5000GB hard drive problems


Click on Start and then right click on My Computer and then click Manage.
On the Computer Management Window, click on Disk Management and then check if there is any uninitialized partition or drive. If you see any such drive, then right click the drive and initialize the drive.
If am not sure but once you do that, you may or may not lose the data.
