Hello,

That usually means there is a disk in a drive somewhere either floppy or cd. Just remove them and restart.

However it could mean that there is hard drive trouble also. I would need more details on what you see on the screen to determine that.

Also, by saying that "it also makes a beeping noise until you hit a button" it could be a stuck key on the keyboard. If none of the steps correct the issue please reply back with as much detail as possible.

Hope this helps. Please remember to rate this information.

Thanks

1. check to see if your pc is compatible with the software. You didn't specify if you are reloading or installing for the first time.
2.You didn't give hard drive capacity or any information about the Pc you are loading Windows on.
You may not have enough capacity on the hard drive to load the full XP
Wndows xp requires about 2 GB of hard drive space then at least 10 GB of space for swap files and operation files.

DELL DIMENSION 2400 ERROR STOP: 0x00000024, (0x00100203,0X82F898


You seem to have an error in the boot sequence of the Operating system. If you are unable to access the safte mode of the OS, then you will have to do a hard boot (boot from disk). My suggestion is seeing that you have a Dell, many times they will give you a boot disk or charge you $10 for one to be sent to you. Boot disks are not expensive at all.

Once you recieve the boot disk, go into the BIOS and change the boot sequence that it boots from your CD/DVD drive first instead of your hard drive (C). Then restart the computer with the disk in the disk drive and it will load from the disk.

If that does not work, you will have to do a reimage. For that you will need a Windows OS CD (XP, Vista - whatever OS you use). From there you can either have your data slaved over to another drive prior to reimaging, or if you dont mind loosing the data, just push in the Windows OS CD and it will ask if you want to over write or reimage, answer yes, and it will begin to wipe your computer and place a brand new copy of the OS on there.

Toshiba Satelite M100 PC notebook wont start up windows XP


This sounds like a memory problem. Download and run memtest 86, it is a small iso file that you create a bootable cd from. Run this for at least one pass.

If the memory passes boot from your xp disk and choose R to get into the repair console. Once there type the following commands

fixboot
fixmbr

then try the install again. Hope this helps

Tried to do a restore with restore disc that came with the comput


There seems to be a problem with the operating system that is being installed. This often happens if you use the restore disks that came from another computer.

Are you sure that you used the disks that came with that exact computer? Does it flash a blue screen right before restarting the cycle?

Try the restore over again and if the problem persists, you may have to either order new restore disks for your computer or buy a fresh copy of Windows XP.

Error on windows load


[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect /NoExecute=OptIn
This is what the boot.ini file should look like. Use U'r recovery disk to create or edit the ini file as above. U cannot use DOS 6.22 to create this file if U'r system is formated in NTFS.
If U don't have a recovery disk, make one from someone else's XP computer (DOS 7.xx).

:( LAPTOP wont start


First ensure that the problem you have explained is due to a VIRUS or Laptop related.Remove the hard drive from your laptop and turn it ON and check if it remains ON until you SWITCH OFF, if yes then you could install MS Win XP or any OS supported and download the drivers for the OS from the manufacturer's web site and install them all one by one . It definitely would work
