    Dave,

    Good day!

    I tried your 2nd suggestion and it works for me. I just transferred the new cd rom and connected it to the IDE next to hard drive. After booting cdrom boot already appeared. But i got a new problem the cmos check sum failed and even the memory test failed, and the battery failed. When i press enter to install the SET UP it went to blue screen telling that the PC was corrupted. it needs to shut down. after the reboot same problem occurred. When i disabled the catching and shadowing in the BIOS setup the cd installer now runs and right now am waiting for the completion of the installation process. The pc just runs so slow because the memory available is only 256 MB.

    Thank you for the wise suggestions.

    Sincerely yours,

    Jonags ( jonags3@mail.com)

Jonags,

NTLDR is the NT Loader basically the instructions the bios needs to start your Operating system.
If it is not finding the NTLDR it could be due to a couple of things.

First thing I'd do is to check that the install disc is a full install disc for the OS and not an Upgrade disc.

If it IS a full OS disc then we need to enter the BIOS (Basic Input Output System) Usually done by hitting <Delete> or <F12> during boot up. Once in the BIOS there should be an option for "Boot order" we need to set it so that your optical drive (CD/DVD) is listed as the 1st entry in the boot order. press <F10> to save and exit. Put the CD/DVD in your drive and boot up your computer.

this should get you started with your installation.
If it does not, you likely have a faulty optical drive.
Please post your results so we can further assist you.

Thanks
Dave

Can't detect XP discs in win 64 bit


Hello Joe, 64-bit processing is faster than 32-bit processing because the CPU is handling more bits at once, However, a 64-bit OS requires more resource than a 32-bit OS, A 64-bit OS requires that device drivers operating in kernel mode be a 64-bit drivers, These drivers must be available from the device manufacturer. An application is compiled to process 64-bit or 32-bits. A 64-bit OS can run either 64-bit applications or 32-bit applications, but 64-bit applications are faster also 64-bit applications cannot run on a 32-bit OS.
A 32-bit OS can only address up to 4 GB of memory, More than that might be on the motherboard, but the OS cannot use it, because it does not have enough memory addresses to assign to the physical memory. A 64-bit OS theoretically can address up to 1 terabyte of memory although in practice, most motherboards can only hold from 12 to 16 GB of memory.( A terabyte is roughly 1000 GB or 1 trillion bytes). If you open many applications at the same time and have high computing needs and enough hard drive space and memory, you can benefit from 64-bit computing. To get most out of it, the processor, motherboard, operating system, drivers and applications must all be 64-bit, and you should have installed the maximum amount of memory the motherboard supports.

Problem about sound not installed in my p3 system


Please give details of your motherboard i.e. Model, Make, Sr & Product no. This visible if you look carefully it is either stamped on it else a sticker gives the details.Visit the Mother Board manufacturers web site like Hp, Compaq, Intel, Asus, etc. On entering the model no.& product no. you can register yourself(its free) and then install the drivers most appropriate for your system keeping in mind the Processor, RAM and which OS you are using........sodeep

Sound driver


Sorry pal. Machine is a DELL Inspiron 1721. No cable neither loudspeakers. I have no motherboard CD shipped with laptop. I already tried to install audio drivers from DELL Utilities & Drivers CD, but OS refuses to recognize that a soundcard is present.

Thanks anyway. It has to be solved by someone who's had the same problem and managed to work around it.
