Why can't you reinstall windows? What stops you from doing so?

    Have you whole machine setup or just the essentials? Try installing XP with just the CD-Rom, one stick of memory, graphics card, one hard drive and processor setup. Then you're minimizing the chance or errors from other components.

Laptop is loading up really slow and I cant select any options


Probably, reinstall windows and it will be ok. But, you may need the DVD from the manufacturer to boot from in order to reinstall a fresh copy of windows.

PC boot problem


Hi Jimmy,
Does the PC load windows fully before restarting?
If it does load and then restart,then it may be a problem on the part of your hard drive.
Run a full scan of the PC with an updated anti-virus to rid off any viral attacks.Make sure the anti-virus is always updated for better performance.
If it does not load windows,try this:-
  • Restart the PC.
  • Before it loads the first page,press Ctrl,Alt and Del.This is a soft boot sequence.
  • The booting leads you to the Bios setup page.
  • Under file save changes and exit[though no changes made].
  • If problem not solved repeat the procedure again.
If the problem persists,you may have to reinstall the operating system again.

Hope this helps.Thanks!

Windows xp is not starting


Windows XP is a fairly stable and secure operating system, but errors and other problems will occur from time to time. Unfortunately, some of these errors can damage or corrupt important system files and can lead to Windows XP not booting up correctly. You can repair your Windows XP installation using a process known as a "repair install," overwriting the damaged system files with new versions from your Windows XP installation disc. The repair install process takes approximately one hour, though a large portion of this time will not require any input from you.

1,Start your computer and place the Windows XP installation disc in the drive. If the computer is crashing upon attempting to boot, allow it to restart; otherwise, reboot the computer manually.
2.Press a key to boot from the Windows XP CD if prompted to do so when the computer attempts to boot again. If you are not prompted to boot from the CD, restart the computer again and press the indicated key on the initial BIOS screen to access the "Boot Order" or "Boot Sequence" menu. Select the CD or DVD drive containing the Windows XP installation CD, then press a key when prompted to boot from the disc.
3.Press the "Enter" key on the initial Windows XP welcome screen and press "Enter" again to begin setting up Windows XP. Do not press the key indicated to launch the "Recovery Console," as the Windows XP recovery console is not used to repair corrupted XP installations.
4.Accept the user agreement and wait while the setup program scans your hard drive.
5.Press the "R" key when the Windows XP setup program lists the installed version of XP that it detected to begin the repair installation. If you have more than one version of Windows XP installed, make sure that the proper version is listed before pressing "R."
6.Wait while the Windows XP setup program copies files to your hard drive and begins the installation process. The installation will take 45 minutes or longer, depending on the speed of your computer, during which time all of the Windows XP system files will be overwritten.
7.Confirm your user information as well as the date and time settings on your computer, and enter your Windows XP product key when prompted. Allow the operating system to connect to the Microsoft authentication servers to activate itself.
8.Reinstall any hardware drivers and XP Service Packs that you had previously installed, as your copy of Windows XP will have reverted to the basic installation you had when it was first installed.

I hope you find it very helpful.

Reinstalling


Hard drive has bad sectors on it which is why its giving you that message even though you can go thru the restore. Normally going thru the system cd and then the recovery cd should bring you into windows with the device drivers installed.

Elite Group K7S5A Boot Problem


Try this... Remove all cards, hard drive(s) and cables, such as cdrom and floppy, except the video connection so that you can see what is going on. Go to the bios setup. Set all of the bios settings to default as you exit to reboot. Then try again. By setting the bios, that should take care of it. Then replace the other items, cards one by one and watch the reactions.
Hope it works.

How long ago did you purchase your computer? If your within the return policy i'd return it right away. It appears that you have a bad Hard Drive.

If your outsitde the return policy, you'll have to purchase a new hard drive and get it installed or contact HP and send out your unit to get repaired.

If you purchased a PSP with your laptop, Geek Squad will take care of it all for you.
