Cant find Windows Installer and my XP restore plus will not open


My suggestion would be to go into BIOS Setup, and in Boot Options; change the first boot device to CDROM.

Computer off. (Press the Power On button in for a count of 10 seconds, or until computer turns off)

AS SOON AS you press the Power On button, start tapping on the F10 key.
Tap in 2 second intervals.
If you hear beeps ignore them. They are Stuck Key Error Code beeps, and it is You that is doing it. (It's OK)

Takes a few seconds, then you should be looking at the Main menu, in BIOS Setup,

System Information
Standard CMOS Setup
Advanced BIOS Features
Advanced Chipset Features
Integrated Peripherals
Power Management Setup

PnP/PCI Configuration
PC Health Status
Load Optimized Defaults
Supervisor Password
Set User Password
Save and Exit Setup
Exit Without Saving

You CANNOT use your mouse anymore. You need to use the Keyboard.

Use the Down Arrow key, and highlight Advanced BIOS Features.
Press the Enter key.

First Boot Device
Second Boot Device
Third Boot Device
Fourth Boot Device

You want CDROM as the First Boot Device.
This FORCES the computer to boot off of a disk in the optical drive.
(CD/DVD drive)

So you will want Optical Drive as the first boot device.

BIOS Setup changes. There are different versions.
The manual is unclear, of how to move Optical Drive to the top of the list, or also can be said as move to First Boot Device.

Let's see if this method is used;
Use the Down Arrow key, and highlight -> First Boot Device
Now press the Enter key.

Use the Down Arrow to highlight Optical Drive.
Press the Enter key.
Now look at the navigation guide at the bottom. (Does NOT state navigation guide)

Use the appropriate keys to Change Value.
It should either be the + / - keys, or the Page Up/Page Down keys.

(If you can, I would use the Minus { - } key, and not use the Plus
{ + } key )

Tap the key until Optical Drive is at the top of the list, or across from First Boot Device.
Press the Enter key.

Now use the Up or Down Arrow key to highlight -> Save and Exit, and press the Enter key.

Don't have your Restoration Disk in the optical drive?
That's OK. Open the drive, put it in.
Now press the CTRL, ALT, and DELete keys AT THE SAME TIME.
This will restart the computer.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

I have a hp pavillon a6110n pc when starting the fan comes on won't boot up runs for about 5 mins the shuts down


Hi...crazyhorse63...

Start your computer in the Safe Mode.
To start in Safe Mode
Turn your computer on
Keep tapping F8 while the computer is starting up
When the computer starts select Safe Mode
1. Uninstall any softwear you may have put on the computer before the problem started.
2. Do a complete System Restore: Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore.
This will bring your system back to a time before you installed the softwear or Microsoft installed drivers,etc.
Note: Just be sure to use a date in a darkened box before your trouble start date.
If after you have done the above and your still getting the blue screen of death, the installed drivers,softwear,etc might have corrupted the Operating System.
If that happened then that means either repair or reinstall the operating system.
You will need to do the following:
1...Repairing the Operating System...
A...You will have to have the Operating Dics that came with the computer
It will have your product key number that came with the computer, you can also find it on the tower, or under the bottom of your laptop, or maybe the piece of paper that the CD orginally came in may have the number on it.
You can also download a small program and it will tell you your product key number.
Go to the following webpage to download your FREE key finder.
http://www.magicaljellybean.com/keyfinder/
B...You will now insert the disc into the CD/DVD player
C...Restart the computer
D...When the window opens that tells you to press "Any" key, you will press any key you want to press.
E...If you do not receive a message that says "press any key to boot from CD", then then the computer is not ready to boot from a cd.
To correct this problem you will have to go into your computer's Bios and change the computer to boot from a CD.
To get into the Bios, shut the computer off,restart, while the computer is starting up keep tapping F1 as the computer is starting up.
When you are in the Bios, select to boot by CD by moving the cursor with the direction arrows on the keyboard.
Once you have selected to boot by cd the exit and restart the computer...the disc is already in the cd/dvd player.
Your system will boot then from the cd.
F...After a minute or less it should ask you if you want to Quit Repair, or Continue.
You will select repair this time, but you may have to come back here and select Install if the repair does not work.
It will ok the agreement document if it asks you too.
Tap F8 on your keyboard to pass it when ready.
It will ask you if you want to Install, Repair, Delete Partition, or Quit.
Select Repair
Inside the box there will be one or two partitions.
Choose the largest partition.
After you have chosen the largest partition, you will then press the "r" key to start the repair
After the repair is complete then you will need to restart your computer.
G...Computer Restart
After the repair is complete, shut the computer down (the computer will shut down a few times during the installation of the operating system
that is normal).
Then restart your computer, when the computer restarts it will have a box to put your product key...put the product key in the box.
Answer any questions.
The computer should start up as if it was a new computer.
You do not need to re-register
You can now remove the disc.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
If this fails to clear your blue screen of death then you have a hardware problem.
It could be faulty ram
If you still get the BS (Blue Screen), then you have two choices.
1.Reinstall the entire Operating System and you may have to update some drivers.
This will require you to go back to the start of the repair info.
2..Take your machine in to have the hardware tested.
Keep in mind that if you do a complete reinstall of the Operating System you will lose all the information on the computer,such as pictures, programs, videos, everything you installed will be gone.
Please take time to rate me four thumbs up

I need to reinstall Windows XP Professional, i.e. a so-called clean installation, on my HPCompaq dx2300 Microtower. When I insert the Operating System CD, Windows XP Professional, I get the following...


Hi,

You can get this from the computer manufacturer. It is called a Recovery Disc as well. If the computer is no longer under warranty there will be a charge for it, but not as much as purchasing a windows installer disc from microsoft. I believe you will pay for the shipping, the disc, and the tax which would cost you $40 at most.

Cant reinstall XP asks for restore plus cd!!!


Dear Sir,

Welcome to Fixya Support.

According to your problem description,it seems that you formatted your computer hard disk by connecting it to another PC.If it is yes.
Your Hard Disk completely formatted along with your windows drive i.e C drive. So you have to reinstall operating system by using recovery or restore plus CD supplied along with your PC.Restore plus cd means a CD which is having operating system files,and needed when operating system fails to boot.If you purchased Genuine operating system along with your PC,you should have recovery or operating system CD.
if you are not having recovery CD,you can use windows XP CD for fresh installatin of your operating system

I think it helps.

If you any difficulty leave a comment,we were happy to assist you.


Have a Nice Day!
