Try running linux on it. Linux will run much better on older hardware. Depending an the specs of the system, it may not be able to handle running windows. Try ubuntu (www.ubuntu.com). If it used to run Windows XP or 98 and it wont now, try checking the hard drive. It may be corrupt. You can find hard drive check tools all across the web, google for drive fitness test by hitachi, it works great. Burn to a disk and boot to it on the older machine and do a full advanced test on the drive.

I have a ATI 3d rage pro mach 64 all in wonder pro 4mb agp ntsc tv card that was running fine on windows 98se. Like a fool, I upgraded to windows xp pro and now my tv won't work on the computer. I have...


WOW. Uh, no offense, but your tech is kinda...ancient. Your card won't work likely because XP does not support anything that old. If you want my opinion, ditch your entire setup and buy some Alienware or something, and get new replacement cards, and install windows 7. Alternatively, you could always try to downgrade back to 98SE, but that would mean that you could not use some programs that were designed for xp.You're kinda stuck here. If 98SE was installed on your computer when you bought it, i SERIOUSLY recommend following my opinion. Don't bother calling ATI and asking for help; they discontinued those more than a decade ago. An alienware computer likely has literally THOUSANDS of times the processing power, storage, and speed.

Compaq SR1650NX HARD DRIVE MESSED UP RECOVERY DISK WON'T WORK REPLACED HARD DRIVE CAN'T GET BIOS TO RECONIZE HARD DRIVE SHOWS UP IN BOOT BUT NOT IN MAIN HP SAID TO INSTALL NEW OS HAD OLD 98SE LOADED WORKED...


Are you trying to set up a raid configuration? If not I would reformat using the 98 disk and reinstall. (You may be able to skip installing 98, try installing xp first and it should ask for the disk containing the software (win98) that qualifies for the upgrade.

Computer crashed, not sure how to recover it and what to use.


TRY BOOTING WHILE PUSHING F10 OR F11. MOST GATEWAY AND EMACHINES HAVE A RECOVERY PARTITION FOR A BACK TO FACTORY RECOVERY.

Fujitsu amilo d1845, Windows xp start up problems


Steven,

it could be a heat realted, can you get to the cpu cooler? most laptops i have worked on this is accessible by lifting the keyboard.

Give it a blow out with a compressed air can and see if that works, if not try lifting the cpu cooler and cleaning off old thermal paste and reapplying new.

Regards

Nick

Windows 98 SE


if you need an operating system and would not mind using linux (an alternative to windows) look on the www.puppylinux.com site and see if you would like to try it. the download is about 80meg and it runs very fast on all the computers i have used it with. or try looking on softpedia for a free download of the outdated windows xp install disks. or you can buy some disks from ebay. but i reccomend trying puppy linux, it is free and you have nothing to lose.(the disk is a live boot disk, so it should just run off the cd)

you will have to reformat the hard drive. You have probably suffered a filesystem crash. you can recover the data by using a recovery application like recover my files
