This is not a serious problem. Go to control panel, select sound and audio devices, Go to sound tab and select Windows default using scroll down menu. This may resolve the issue

Hi Friend, As you have mentioned that you have installed Windows XP on the system. I would like to tell you that after installing Windows XP, you have to install the drivers for the video and audio also.
Since you haven't mentioned the make of the laptop. So, I would request you to please let me know the make of the laptop so that I can provide you with the drivers for the same.
The only issue that why you are not getting sound is that we have to install the sound drivers in order to make the sound to work.

When i start xp bariski i have error RCINT failure string table Id not found '42' at line 42 what can i do now ? Also, I cannot shut it down normally but only manually all the time.. I am getting worried...


Why would it break your laptop, what's Bariski, and why does it sound like some script is failing as you boot?

Yes it sounds like things are going pear-shaped; you should find a nice data transfer program for XP installs and do 3 things:
1- Boot to a backup utility CD and make a full backup of your HD to optical disk or a network (SAN/WAN), or just make a HD to HD copy on the bench using the bench machine if you know how to do that.  Laptop HDs only last 3 years at full performance, especially if well-traveled.
1a- Yes, you need a new laptop HD of the same interface; any size is fine.
2- Install an OS you like on the new HD; then a VM and partition for the old stuff if you want to preserve that environment and it doesn't transfer directly or seems inadvisable.  Install antivirus and backup tools too.
3- Transfer your stuff to the working system from the original drive or backup.

Hi.

If she did not format the hard disk, then the Windows XP startup option will be present in boot option. When computer startup you will get a choice like this:

1 Microsoft Windows Vista Home Edition.
2 Microsoft Windows XP Professional SP2

In that case you can restore XP, starting on XP and editing the file winboot.ini, that is an hidden system file located on C:/ drive.

See:How to edit the Boot.ini file in Windows XP.

If instead Windows XP does not start, or if you do not get the boot option, that means that Windows XP system file had been deleted.

In that case the only way to get back Windows XP is reinstalling the system from scrap, using a Windows XP install disk, and the number listed on the licence sticker.

Regards.

Desktop doesnt boot.


If you have a windows XP recovery CD, try running that at boot.

also, try pressing the f8 key to boot windows in safe mode.

it sounds like a corrupted OS install: if you can't recover, you may have to reformat your hard drive and reinstall windows.
