Hi there
Don't bother with service pack 3, it will only slow the pc down even more, what you need is a memory upgrade so the machine can perform well, also a better hard drive would be a good idea

How can i reformat my computer using windows xp cd,but no cd key?


if you know the Administrator password of the current XP installation on the harddrive, you can boot from the installation CD, choose the option "repair windows" and "recovery console".
After enterng the admininstrator password you will get the standard "old MS-DOS lookalike" console when you will be able to format the entire disk.

Hi, the problem here is that you may well not find the drivers for windows 7, and to re install XP you will need to reformat your hard drive; for this you will need to change your primary boot device to CD Rom, and then boot with your XP disk in drive, selecting boot from CD when it appears. Re partition and reformat and after reboot it will start to install XP.
Hope this helps

XP shuts down on start up and it goes back to the boot-up screen. However, chosing the safe mode (or any other mode)results in the same problem. I noticed that the screen very briefly goes blue just...


I would try Last Known Good Configuration ... available from the same menu as your Safe Mode (or hit F8 before Windows screen displays). If that doesn't work, then you should boot to your XP CD and attempt to repair it using Recovery Console. Boot to the CD as if to install it, but when asked if you want to repair using Recovery Console, then hit 'R'. First, run CHKDSK /R twice. If this OS came pre-installed on your system, it may have a PC Restore partition. You can use that to reinstall, if needed ... but it will erase all your user data, restoring the PC to the exact same condition as when you opened it. If you do not have this PC Restore option, then you can also run FIXBOOT in Recovery Console to attempt to repair it.

Hi, you will need to reformat your hard drive before installing XP, First boot into BIOS by pressing the F1 key during bootup, change the primary boot drvice to CD rom, save changes. Insert XP cd into drive and reboot PC; select boot from CD when this appears during the initial boot fase. Allow files to be installed. When this finishes, delete partion and then repartion hard drive. Select format hard drive, when this completes your PC will reboot, do not select boot from CD and XP will start to install normally.
Hope this helps, if not come back to me.

Windows not booting


Hello,

Regarding on your problem, the main issue their is the booting problem of XP after you delete the fedora operating system. That's common problem especially when the computer are in dual boot OS then you delete the other OS. Now, the reason why it usually fall into this problem its just because the XP is your core OS then you install Linux Fedora inside in XP so whatever changes you have done in fedora particularly deleting Linux OS inside XP affects the overall performance of your XP and eventually if you delete the Fedora without proper unistallation process done by Linux OS then the Boot Loader of your XP will also corrupt or delete that's the main cause of boot failure in your XP OS. Now the best solution there is to repair your XP by inserting the XP CD Installer and boot the CD to repair your OS or you can reinstall the XP OS without formatting the storage to prevent the lost of your data that has not yet already copyed a back up.

Please do this recommendation to save and restore your XP.

thanks
