Cannot format my optiplex 760 partition


Hi.

Because you are unable to format or delete the partition then I'm afraid that this is a strong indication that you need to replace the hard drive, this is probably due to bad sectors and clusters that the drive cannot read or write to.

Boot Problem


Your Hard Drive is getting weak replace it with a new one , sometimes when it gets weak and get bad sectors it does not take up the OS and Boot bcoz the data written get lost so replace it or do the double check as follows

check ur hard drive is it showing u in Bios the main culprit is ur Hard Drive try re loading ur operating system by formatting ur hard drive otherwise Change ur Hard Drive it has become weak , there is a hard drive checking utility like HDDLIFE try connecting it to another desktop and scna it thru this software see the strength of the hard drive ur self download the trial version from website www.binarysense.com and let me know if it helps ,

basically if u computer boots ok and goes in bios when u press key that seems like ur whole pc is working ok incl RAM the only thing that is responsible for the operating sys is Hard disk it is where all files reside so when it crashes or get weak it doesnt give up files to boot so pc is unable to boot forward

pls do vote me if u find me helping and fixya problem

COMPUTER HANGING PROBLEM.


There Can be various reasons my frnd first check out the CD you r using for installation is fine means nt scratched, then your CD rom, and at last boot your conputer from a floppy or dos and run Check disk if the hard drive chkdisk completes and it does nt show up that hard drive file sys is RAW, if it shows up then say your harddrive by bye, thats what i hav to do if such a hard drive shows up, and if you have guts then try using number of different software like test disk and HDD regenerator they may pull your hard drive 6 more months.
If that stuff does nt solve your prob please provide more detail and check your hardware to see if no pins etc are broken

Am trying to gopy c drive get ntuser error can not remove nester fom c drive thank you have prestige desktop hard drive 500cb


From the sound of your question you are trying to move your whole system on to a new drive.

It is not possible to do it using a simple copy. There are many reasons for this, but the main one will be that files are open and cannot be copied.

The best thing to do is run NTbackup.exe and use it to make a backup of the disk. Alternatively you could use a product such as Drive Ssnapshot (http://www.drivesnapshot.de/en/down.htm) to take an image of the disk.

I can not figer out how to load programs from old hard drive to new hard drive.Prestige


In most cases old HDD are not recognised by new systems.
Try installing them (if you have the original setup discs) just as you did on your old HDD

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
