Hi,

XP cannot install on a Vista-created and formatted volume due to some small
changes in the implementation of the file system, though it can read them
just fine. When you boot the XP disk, at the point where you choose the
installation location, you need to delete the existing system volume and
create a new one, then format it (quick is ok) and proceed with setup. Other
volumes on the system can be left as is, it's just the system volume that
needs to be recreated.

Make sure the manufacturer of the pc has XP drivers available for the
hardware before doing this reversion, as some newer machines do not support
having XP installed on them. Also, there is a potential that this downgrade
may void your warranty, or that the vendor may require that you reinstall
the originally supplied operating system before any warranty work can be
implemented.

thank you

boot your laptop in safe mode by pressing F8 while starting the computer. follow this link http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/malwarebytes/mbam-setup-1.51.1.1800. download and install antimalwarebyte while in safe mode. Run a complete scan, restart the laptop, update your antivirus and do a complete scan and you will be good. If your laptop restarts when trying to boot into safe mode, then you need to repair your Operating system with its original disk. This would solve your problem. Please give me a feedback

I have an HP M7100Y Media computer runnign XP and replaced the cooling fan but when I boot I get an error message System Fan Failure press F2 to continue. How do I avoid the error message?


Does the fan spin up? There is a third wire on the fan that is interogated by the uProcessor to determin how fast it is spinning. If it is spinning but not registering, there is an interface problem, maybe poor connecion on the socket it plugs into?
Hope this helps.

How to down grade hp dv5-1104tu notebook from vista to xp


Basically you've got to take your XP cd and modify it to work correctly with your laptop.

Have you already tried using just a regular XP cd? If it didn't work it's because your laptop harddrive is SATA and not IDE. The XP cd doesn't come with the correct drivers so when you finish installing XP a blue screen of death will come up and prevent you from loading Windows.

Here's a basic guide on how to do it.

If this sounds complicated then I would suggest sticking with Vista.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Best of luck!

My laptop is very slow...


1st off - do a restore on the computer to bring it back to factory settings. This will clean it up and speed it up as well. 2nd you need more ram . Ram is very cheap and Vista needs lots of ram to run.
Thishis should solve your problem. Total cost to you is about $50.00

Problems with used Emachine W3623 Windows vista Home basic


Simply put, No.

Chances are the performance of vista on an eMachine is an ugly sight anyway. My advise would be to downgrade to XP or try a good solid Linux distribution like Ubuntu. It will preform faster and be more stable that it ever was with Vista. Don't get me wrong I am not a total vista hater but it is a hog.

Best of Luck
