There was never XP available as a download. You have two choices; purchase XP via ebay ( http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_sacat=0&_nkw=win+xp+install+disc&_frs=1) or install a new OS.

Tip

ERROR CODE 2000-0142 and UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME


Insert your OS disk into your cd/dvd drive

As the machine boots up - it should have an option to hit F2 or F12

Hit the F12 key

This will give you the option of where to boot your machine from.

Select boot from CD/DVD drive

For me windows loaded some files and gave me an option to either install windows or repair.

I selected repair

I was then asked for the admin password -- typed it in.

It brings you to a command prompt :

Type in CHKDSK

or

Type in CHKDSK/R

Hit the ENTER key

Once your machine has finished and repairing the hard drive, type EXIT and press ENTER to restart your laptop.



PRESTO THE DELL LAPTOP IS NOW BOOTING UP AND IS NOW HAVING ALL ITS DATA BACKED UP.



I have also found another command that could be tried if the above fails. Bear in mind, i didnt have to do it, but will post it here anyway.



After the command prompt - type in FIXBOOT





According to the DELL website the error code 2000-0142 is a Drive Self Test failed error code. http://support.dell.com/support/topi...ED2&doclang=en



This has worked out for myself and i do hope it works for you.

My MSI MS-1683 Laptop With Windows 7 Home Premium won't boot up right. When I hit the power button, it loads to the screen that says "MSI" and then to a screen that has an underscore that...


That blinking underscore is the way in which the laptop's BIOS is telling you that it didn't find any Windows to boot to - it was completely corrupted.
The only thing left to do is to reinstall it.

Windows 7 laptop won't boot to OS , only has a black screen with a blinking cursor


Insert your system recovery disc to repair your startup.

1. Change your Bios to boot from disc:
When your computer powers on, hit F2 (on some computers, F8 on others). Use your arrow keys and move to the right to your BOOT option. Hit the down arrow until you select your CD/DVD drive. Look at the bottom of your screen, and it should say to change the option hit F7 or F8. Use the specified keys, and move your CD/DVD drive above your hard-drive. Save your settings.

2. Boot from your disc. Insert your system recovery disc and restart your computer. Let the recovery disc load. If the option comes up to hit any button to boot from CD/DVD, then hit any button. Once it loads, it should come to a spot where it wants your language. Select your language, then select the option "Startup Repair". Click on it, and let it repair the startup. If it automatically starts correcting your startup then great! If not, then select your operating system from the list and click the Repair Startup option. Restart your computer, and hopefully it will boot from your hard-drive correctly.

Hope this works.

P.S. If it continues to boot from your recovery disc, then using the same method in step 1, go to your bios, and move your CD/DVD drive below your hard-drive.

My acer 532h netbook will not boot,none of the safe modes either


switch it on then press the key that takes it in to the BIOS or SETUP it will tell you on the start up screen, Should be "F2" when your in the bios use the arrow keys to move through the options.
More across to exit and press enter then go down to set/get or load system defaults press enter again then save & exit & the system will re-boot.
if it dosn't boot then do the same again but this time press the boot menu option on start up "F12" or "F8" i think, i should give you a list from the list select the hard drive & hit enter.
Let me know what it says & i will be able to help you more.

My 6400 did up-grade and closed down. It re-booted and is now stuck on WINDOWS VISTA HOME PREMIUM screen. If I switch off and switch on, it just freezes at same place


Start the laptop and insert the Vista installation disc in the dvd tray. Now reboot the laptop with the disc in. When you see the Dell name tap the F12 key to get to the multiboot menu. When you see the menu come up, scroll down to DVD or cd player. The machine will then look at the dvd player to boot from, the disc will be read and you will see this "Hit any key to boot from CD", I usually just hit the space bar, this will start windows files loading. When windows has finished loading its files, it will ask you want to do. Scroll down and choose repair. Windows will search for all the Windows installations on the disc, there should be only one and it will be listed. Click on that and highlight it and click next. Vista will attempt to repair the boot.menu and the boot.ini files. When it is finished it will either tell you it fixed some errors or it will tell you that it cannot fix the repairs automatically. In most cases, the repair will completed and you just have to remove the disc and reboot when it tells you to. If it is unable to repair, it will give you other options, choose restore computer to an earlier time, choose a restore point before the update and click next....I usually go back a couple of days just to make sure, the computer will go through a system restore and back itself up a couple of days before the trouble. Reboot the laptop.

Shut the notebook completely down. Now turn it back on, and as soon as the Acer screen comes up, hit the “F2′ key to enter the BIOS. Navigate to the second page of the BIOS (titled “Main”) by pressing the right arrow key.

You may wish to turn of “Network Boot” by selecting it with your arrow keys and hitting enter, then changing it to disabled. This is often used in a cluster-lab environment, and for normal users only slows down your boot process.
You must now turn on the F12 Boot Menu by selecting it with your arrow keys, hitting Enter, and changing it to “Enabled”
Now switch to the “Exit” page, and hit Enter to “Exit Saving Changes”. The BIOS will ask you to confirm, tell it “Yes”.
Now the notebook will reboot, and you must hit F12 to boot from your CD.
On the “Boot Manager” screen, chose the second option which should be an ATAPI drive, such as a DVD-RW or CD-RW, highlight it with your arrow keys and press Enter.thank u,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

WINSOWS CRASHING


Ok, lets try something different,
Do you have the cds that came with your Dell. If not call up tech support on 1-800-624-9896 and request for them

Otherwise do the following steps
1. Power on the system
2.Tap on the F12 key slowly five times on the Dell logo screen
3. Select diagnostics
4.If everything passes then its good news , otherwise the faulty component is causing the crash

Part 2
1. Restart the system and again Tap on F12
2.Insert the windows xp cd
3. Select the option boot from cdrom and hit enter
4. Hit enter again when you see the message,"Press any key to boot from cd"
5.Windows starts to load
6.It will come to screen that would give you three options
a. to setup windows hit enter
b. to repair press R
c to exit exc.
7. Hit enter
8. Hit F8 on the next screen
9 On this screen it would again give you an option of repairing windows press R
10. Follow the wizard and the windows shoul start

Part 3.

If the above step fails to then the only option left is to backup your information on the system and wipe it clean .Thats a complete reset

Part 4
Restart the systen
On the Dell logo screen , hold down the CTRL key and tap on the F11 key 7 times slowly
You would see a Restore button.
Click restore and Confirm
FOllow the wizard
Caution all your information would be lost in this procedure


Thanks
