HI MY COMPUTER IS A SONY I HAD A REPLACMENT HARD DRIVE NOW IT WON,T START UP KEEPING COMING UP WITH LOAD INT15 DRIVER ERROR AT X:\int15 .sys does this mean the repair was wrong


It doesn't look like the operating system has been installed properly. If you paid someone to do this, you need to go back and ask them to install the operating system again.

If you replaced it, then you need to re-install the operating system. With luck you would have been supplied and O/S disk with your laptop. If not, then the O/S recovery software was stored on a partition on your old hard drive and is now lost.

You'll have to buy or borrow a copy of windows, you'll need a code of authority to go with it or you can download a version on linux for free. I'd go for Ubuntu. Just google it.

I just bought a HP presario laptop with free dos operating system.it uses windows but doesnt have microsoft operating system.I cant download skype.What can I do?


If an application is not available for your operating system, you have two options. One is to look for a compatible application from another source (if one is available). The other option is to switch operating systems. If you want to avoid buying a copy of Windows, install a distribution of Linux. Skype is available for Linux, and programs like WINE can let you run many Windows applications. You also have software like OpenOffice available. Ubuntu is a very popular Linux distribution. Installation is simple and it looks and acts a lot like Windows so it's easy to adjust to using it.

We want to change the language to English


Only Windows 7 Ultimate, Mac OSX and Linux operating systems (OS) can change the language of the menus and icons.

Most probably you have Windows 7 Home Edition
If you just got this PC you can reinstall a new operating system in English that you buy. Installing this will completely erase and replace the present system, files and programs.

Another way is to do a dual boot - a computer loaded with two separate operating systems on two partitions (C: and D: which you create) on the same hard disc. This will give you the choice of using the original OS or another one in English for example Windows XP or a free Linux Ubuntu OS. Google Dual Boot for instructions for your model of Notebook. This will involve some study and experimentation and you may lose the OS you have now, so back up your data. Here is an example of dual boot instructions:

I will ask if i can download windows 7 on linux acer aspire 4738?there will be a problem?


there won't be any problem as far as Windows and Linux, but this is a fairly involved procedure.You'll first need to create a Windows partition on your hard disk in NTFS file system format. Otherwise,Windows might overwrite / erase your linux installation when Windows 7 installs.
make the windows partition the "Primary" or "Boot" partition.
When Windows 7 installs, it may ask if you want to delete the linux partition.Answer "NO" to this.
The next concern is which operating system will boot by default,Windows or Linux.
I had no problem doing this with Windows Vista, and whe Vista booted,it listed a choice of operating systems to boot,and I would select either Windows Vista or Ubuntu Linux.

When I start the laptop (HP HDX 16) I get this messege: Boot device not found Error codes Hard Disk-(3F0) pleas install an operating system on your hard disk. F2 system diagnostic. but it does not install...


The Windows edition listed in BIOS (Vista) is referring to the operating system that came with the computer. BIOS's System Diagnostics will always say the OS is Vista, because that is the original OS that HP put on the system. BIOS itself, however, cannot detect an operating system on the new Hard Drive because there is no operating system. In order to get an operating system, you have a couple options:

Depending on the terms and length of your warranty, you may be able to get HP to reinstall the operating system back onto the new Hard Drive. The amount you would pay depends on the warranty. Many warranties, however, become void when you change physical components in the computer (especially with laptops). If this is the case, you will have to try the next option.
You can buy a retail copy of Windows either online or from an electronics store. The price will depend on what edition you purchase, but it will probably cost you at least $100 US.
You can install a Linux operating system on your Hard Drive. If you've never heard of Linux, it is an operating system based on much of the same code as Mac operating systems, but has a more "Windows-like" feel to it. Linux operating systems are NOT the same as windows, and some programs that work in Windows will not work in Linux; you would need to find the Linux counterpart for these programs. One of the best things about Linux operating systems are that they are absolutely free to download, install and use. A very popular and stable Linux operating system is Ubuntu, which can be found at: http://www.ubuntu.com/

Its running to slow and i want to clean the whole pc out as in reset as if new


You can erase everything off the computer (files, OS, etc) by downloading a program that wipes your hard drive clean. I recommend using Dukes Boot and Nuke software. It is a no-cost virus-free software that works.
Warning! It will delete your operating system (Windows, Mac, Linux, etc.) Without it, you cannot use the computer.
MAKE SURE YOU HAVE AN OPERATING SYSTEM DISC AT HAND WHEN DOING THIS! (WINDOWS OR MAC)

What is the Insert Pause and Delete Break key for


These keys used to be very useful in console mode (without the GUI). They are still useful in graphical systems.
PrtSc allows you to copy the graphical content of a screen as an image and paste it in document editing program. It copies the whole screen (with windows overlapping as if it were a collage)
Used in conjunction with the SHIFT key it copies the top window (the active window).

The Pause Break key halts the scrolling of a text on the screen in Console Mode. Imagine you are in a Dos system or Linux console and you type Print with the name of a text file. It will start scrolling rapidly across the screen. Pressing the pause Break key allows you to STOP/HALT the scrolling so that you can read what is being shown.

If you are running a long program in console mode (the old way) the program will only print messages to the console when asked to. If a calculation takes to long and you have no idea what it is doing you can push the Break key and the system halt the execution of the program (suspend) until you issue the termination command or the resume command.

The DEL key issue a delete command to erase the highlighted character or word or whole paragraph in text editing mode. If you press CTRL ALT DEL a Windows based system will raise the task manager to allow you to either turn computer OFF, kill a task or what have you. Just try it. On old console based windows (3.2, 98, Me, 2000) it will reboot the system.

The Insert or INS key allows you to toggle between Insert or Overwrite in text editing software.

As to the Sys Req key function, that is not clear, it depends on the hardware you are using. Basically it sends a low-level message to the operating system to force it to interrupt what it was doing to return control to the console operator. Most people will nowadays safely ignore it. Most systems just do that:they ignore it.

Installing anti virus onto aspire one net book


Hi, the Acer Aspire is a Linux operating system based computer. It does not run Microsoft windows in the same way that Apple computers run OSX, not windows. The antivirus programs you mention are for windows computers. On the bright side, running Linux you really DON'T need virus protection Linux is inherently far more secure than windows.
