Before installing clear the entire HDD (zero write or remove master boot record). Then clean install. I have had this same issue several times in the past and 99% of the time this has worked for me be it laptops or desktops.

Laptop random shutdown: Safe-mode; Linux


Did u dual install Linux and 7 on 2 different Partitioned Drives?

Is it only linux with the problem or is windows playing up to?

possible a bad install of linux as a OS?

Try uninstalling linux (leave windows) and partition the hardrive (making 2 different drives i.e. C and D on a single Physical Hard Drive -- its just divided into 2 parts)

and try running Linux from a single clean hard drive and leaving Windows seperate.

that MIGHT solve ur problem. gl.

How much HDD (GB) does Intel d945gccr support ?


This is a discontinued MB from Intel and therefore does not have Windows 7 support. So the latest MS OS you can load is Vista, but obviously you can also load any Linux based or Ubuntu etc on it. But the size of HDD you use is not dependent on the MB, but depends on your Operating System you use. Vista 32 bit can support as much as 256TB. SO choose your operating system carefully. The same with the RAM. But there is no relation in terms of HDD size and amount of RAM, rather RAM to OS again.

I was given an HP Mini 1120NR netbook as a gift. The system came with Linux OS installed. My system crashed due to a power failure while I was restoring my system and simulatneously charging my battery,...


first error is step on, never install OS with bad or dead battery
rule 1. so why not stop now and do step one right.
if battery is bad it must be removed and replaced.
as most are this old. ,never seen own old battery like this still good.

This LP stink, have one new parked in attic. hated it.
love Linux do but had the slug processor.
1.60 GHz Intel Atom Processor N270
see that processor, its not a real Intel top class processor
its toy grade.
this mini is setup to boot 2 ways
1 is ROM linux inside
and 2, vista?

mine has a rom imbedded Linux in it that runs using alt boot mode.
but is hard coded in the ROM.
called RESIDENT LINUX. (or techs call it Embedded)


is that failing? or the DVD OS failing?>
the note book can have
ROM LINUX (for ever, its in A CHIP, not HDD)
+ boot hdd linux. boot hdd, XP or Vista.
as you can see you could have 2 linux,
one in rom, and newer one in HDD.
but many linux made do not support the silly ATOM processor.

which OSs are you attempting.

why not buy the HP media kit installs.

https://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/selfservice/hp-mini-1100-pc-series/3875650/model/3860343

here is the driver pages
the media kits are there too.

ask more questions, i played with mine awhile., before parking it.
the claim to fame on this unit
is hDD turned off
boot to rom LINUX and battery lasts 10 hours
can cruse web and read email, on ROM.
very crafty idea but processor is stinker.
maybe ill put in an SSD and see if it can run faster. next winter

How to install windows XP on my toshiba satellite A40, my bios not detect others device like my external dvd portable, cause everytime i instal with cd rom on my notebook always show 'blue screen error' or...


I'm not familiar with that specific model, but if you install from cd and get blue screens and the hard drive is not always detected, this means the hard drive is failing. You will have the same problem if you do manage to get the external cd/dvd drive to detect.

If the A40 is new enough to use a SATA hard drive (I do not think it is) then you need an XP cd with SP2 or 3 included or you will get bluescreens. But the fact that you can't get other OS to install make this an unlikely suspect.

The cd drive could be bad and not copying all the files correctly, but since you say the hard drive sometimes will not detect makes it almost certain that the hdd is the main issue.

Laptop shows only 4gb ram & 300 gb hdd


This is the limitation of a 32 bit (x86) Operating System. A 32 bit OS can detect upto 3GB RAM only.

You may either try installing the x64 Bit of XP Operating System or Vista Service Pack 1 or 2 for 32 bit Vista Operation System to resolve the issue.

After installing the SP 1 or 2 of the Vista OS in the Computer, the OS will detect 4GB RAM.


Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

How to reformat my nc6000 using my os cd?


The NC6000 sometimes has trouble booting to anything other than the primary hard drive once a valid OS has been installed. If you need to reinstall by booting it USB or to a CD/DVD; this works for me as a last resort. (Especially USB which it officially isn't supposed to be able to do.)

Insert the bootable media. Shut the laptop down. Remove the hard drive - but leave it disconnected in the bay. Start the machine, let it detect the bootable device, then hot-plug the hard drive. There is some timing involved, but it works.

I loaded several NC6000 machines running Windows 2000 to Linux and XP this way.

Swaping hdd 845 motherboard to 915 motherboard


its always safe to have data backed up

u can swap the HDD

but bootup with the Win2K CD in the Drive and after the files are loaded at the first screen select install then after it detects the OS select R (Repair) and this will reinstall the operating system files and then you can use the system as before though u may have to install the device drivers and motherboard drivers

for any other clarifications u can place a comment in the same question or u can mail me at mail2pvs@gmail.com

I have Intel 810e PIII 1 GHz 512 Mb Ram 20 GB HDD. OS Win ME I want to add secondary HDD. Which one should I preferr 80GB / 120GB / 160GB. and will install new OS say Win XP or linux in Secondary Hdd....


160gb - but ensure the bios is up to date and check the motherboard manual as that will or should explain about maximum capacity of hard drives but am sure it should be fine.

If it is not and does not detect all of it you can partition the partitions into smaller amounts ie 80 gb partitions each ?

PXE-E61:Media Test Failure


you got that error message because your harddrive isnot detected so it try to boot from network and you don't have OS in the network.

Most of the time is your hdd is dead. In some cases the motherboard is dead.

You can replace your hdd.
for OS (vista vs XP), if you have enough rams and high cpu, you should install vista, but for me, I prefer XP.
for the price, you should call microsoft seller.
