    Do you have Win 2003 previously installed? Do you wish to have "Multiboot Operating system"??

    Do you find difficulty in formatting the Hard Disk Drive??

    Please explain the error message in bit more detail with your Laptop configuration and other OS information to support you further.

Let me know if you have installation disk, and it is bootup with it.

If it not bootup automatically then change the Setting for Boot Priority in BIOS. To go in BIOS press F2, F11, DEL or ESC key mostly works.

Let me know if this work for you, otherwise I will provide you further assistance, just let me know the further details.

Thanks
Scott

Hi Buddy

1.
Try to scan your drive with SCANDISC UTILITY in dos prompt.. or do DIFFREGMENT in Device Manager.

2.
When you reboot your computer, start tapping the F8 key as soon as the computer starts up and that will bring you to the start-up menu.

In the startup menu you will have a choice to start your computer with "Command Prompt Only" after you select that you will most likely be in your C: drive. From there just type in SCANDISK and then you should be able to run a surface scan.

3.
Install new windows OS in diffrent drive path.

Good Luck

How to install hp laserjet p1505n network printer in windows 98


I can not find a win 98 driver for your printer on the HP website. DO yu have the instalation disk that was writen for win 98? If not try installing the printer through  the control panel. Either printers/fax or through install new hardware.The first being the preference. Some of the win OSs have printr drivers already installed.
If this does not work out, then the printer has no drivr available for that version of windows and you ewither have to upgrade to Xp or use a different printer which has a driver for win 98.

I cannot install win xp on my hp pavalion


Hello

the easiest way out is to change the bios settings so that the disk is running in native mode, search for that settings in bios then the windows XP installation should find your disks.

other way is to have a Disk drive and download the sata driver from the manufactory site.

third way is to make a new xp installation cd with the new driver.

but try the first one first. little more info about your computer should be helping me to help your more?

good luck

Halo 2 for pc


The reason is, it only happens when you try to install Halo 2 on Windows XP.

The Game gets installed perfectly on Windows Vista

Because, I have installed and played the game on Windows Vista. But, when I de-graded my OS to Windows XP and tried to install the game. It gave me the same error message.

So, if your OS is Win XP then try install on Win Vista if you have it or on your friends PC.

But if you are already on Win Vista then please do let me know.

Also could please let me know whether your trying to Auto install the game or you are manually trying to install the game by clicking Step.exe?


I would be glad to find some help for you in this regard.

Motherboard upgrade??


Dear kaname,

Your computer can support Windows XP, which has better hardware support and compatibility with the 2003 Office suit. XP also updates your hardware automatically once you are on the internet. You might want to try this.

Keep in mind that the older the Operating System, the harder it is for Office suites to compat. Newer Operating systems have better support for your computing. If you don't have HDD problems, the BIOS should not prevent you from loading SP2 for Win2000.

Conclusion:

1. The SP2 Source Disk may have a problem
2. The Win 2000 you have already loaded may be missing components, preventing the SP2 to load.
2. Notton Antivirus versions and the 2003 office both reject Win 2000. They just don't like it; it's getting too old.

Get with it, Kaname!!!!

File crupted repair


Insert your Windows XP install Disk and reboot
when it asks if you want to repair or install windows pick INSTALL. it will then search for previous installations and find yours.

At this point you press R for repair, it will reair your entire installation of windows, leaving your prgrams and files intact.

Be careful though, as the wrong choice could wipe your drive, although you are given many dire warnings by the installer before you do this, so if you read and pay attention you should be safe.
