Trying to reload Windows OS. Run into


From another computer build a msdos floppy disc, yes floppy disc.
I believe you computer accepts floppys does it not? and i also asume you are running xp, you can try running the startup disc and trying to check disc, but if you cannont procede, i would opt into downloading another copy of the windows and try installing through that method. If the disc dosent load, and you get that error message of the bat, another step will be waiting for you.

Windows XP won't load on my emachine t3516


You may need to check to make sure Windows XP was installed properly, if the computer had crashed, you can do a repair, I am a computer technician, and I can tell you, that replacing the power supply will not do that.

also while you are at it reset BIOS by remove battery from motherboard and/or switching jumper setting.

My Desktop Computer won't start up.


Mine has crashed. So has yours. It has crashed. You must try to boot it with a boot disc made for the operating system. As its 8 years old the manufacturer wont sell you a boot disk but you can buy a boot disk for the correct version ofwindows

Windows Xp on Intellistation Z Pro type 6221


A restoration disc is not a conventional Windows OS disc (and vice versa), therefore it often cannot be used as if it were a true Windows disc. The restoration disc includes the OS, but it also includes every driver and other software product that came with your system. If Windows were the only item loaded on your system, then a Windows disc could serve as a restoration disc, but these days, using a typical restoration disc is an all-or-nothing process.

A restoration disc is your ultimate troubleshooting tool. Suppose that your copy of Windows becomes damaged from a virus or key applications become corrupted. Symptoms such as instability, crashing, indecipherable error messages, and impaired performance are extremely hard to diagnose by yourself—even if you have the help of a customer support technician on the telephone. If the most common corrective steps fail, you can always use the restoration disc to recover your PC back to its known-good, factory-fresh state.

Installing updates


restore your pc to an earlier time before you had the problem run anti virus & anti spy ware scans
if that does not correct things
put windows disc in drive, cancel install if it starts
go to start/run and type "cmd" in the run box
when the other box opens type "sfc/scannow
this will check all the system files & drivers and will replace any that may be missing or corrupted.

good luck ,please rate my efforts

RECOVERY DISC ALONG WITH UP GRADE IF POSSIBLE


if you dont have the recovery disc for your computer, you will need to purchase a new windows installer, ones it is installed just download the drivers from the manufacturer website.
