    What I am trying to do is either replace some of my system files which needs to be done offline, or reinstall the OS but the only way I can do this is to boot from the BIOS with XP OS Disk or Bart PE from USB or Disk



    I have tried booting from USB too but again no joy, the device is there when XP is running so I know it works (I'm using the front USB connectors on front case).



    To boot from the USB drive, do I need to use the rear USB ports directly on the motherboard for it to be bootable in bios like a hard drive? (I'm not presently at the PC)



    Or is there any way to reset the BIOS without taking the PC to bits, to see if that would fix the issue

Press F12 when the BIOS startup.
it should give you a choice as to what drive you want to boot-off.
that also enable you to boot-off from USB.

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

This error comes usually when there is problem in software or driver compatibility issue with hardware or operating system.
Also this error comes when there is bed indexing unit in hard drive.
You can solve this errors with following 2 methods.
(1)When you power up the computer press F8 key then enter in safe mode.
Then if you are able to enter in safe mode then uninstall driver or software which you installed recently and face this error.
(2)If you are not able to enter in safe mode Then you need to fix error on hard drive.For that you need windows disk or recovery disk.
Boot your computer with that disk
For that when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 "del" key to enter in bios.
Then go to boot menu and set first boot device as your cd or dvd rom.
Then save settings and exit bios.
Insert windows disk in cd /dvd rom.
Then it boot with that disk.Then you get this message "Press any key to boot from cd.."
Then press any key.
Then follow the procedure then enter in recovery console mode then type in prompt "chkdsk /r"
Then type "y"
Then it fix error on hard drive.
Then check if again you are not able to enter in windows then boot again and this time choose "R" option for repair previous windows " then it repairs old windows then it loads again old windows.
Thanks for using FixYa.

You could try to insert your XP disk and boot from it. It might have a recovery option. If so, select it, and you should be able to repair Windows and keep your data. If not, I'm afraid all you can do is reinstall it. I'm sorry, Yannick.

Call Of Duty 4, Need SERIOUS help!!!!!!


Hmmm. The blue screen isnt a good think. Even though people say what kind of model a dell computer is, doesnt describe the processor, memmory modules...how much...speed etc.

You need to uninstall your graphics drivers.

Download ccleaner and drivercleaner. Do a scan with both. Do a full driver clean with driver cleaner because it clears the junk out of your registry. Make sure you do a reg backup with both programs.

Now you can restart your computer and install the latest drivers.


the x600 card is a little on the outdated side and can probly run the game on low to medium. Start with 800x600 resolution and turn aniostropic and antiliasing off. Turn everything off that you think is necessary, start the game, and see how it runs. Download fraps so you can see your fps. If you get about 60 than you can turn a setting up. If you get 30 or lower, turn your settings down.

I hope this helps. Please contact me if you need any further advies. I also want to say that you should have at least a gig of memroy and hopefully 2 gigs to play the game at good settings.

Installed new graphics card and Windows won't start


If your new video card has a power connector, make sure it is connected to a power plug. If you already did that, it's possible your PC's power supply doesn't have enough power to run all your connected equipment.

To get your old card running, hit F8 repeatedly during boot-up until you get the boot options. Select VGA mode. It should boot up properly then.

Once booted into VGA mode, set your screen resolution to something simple like 1024x768 or 800x600, then reboot.

If that doesn't work, try hitting F5 repeatedly during boot-up to boot into Safe mode. You can then adjust your settings again there.

When you say "it isn't bootable from the cd", do you mean the cd isn't a bootable cd?, or the computer isn't configured to boot from a cd? If the latter, I suggest obtaining a bootable ME cd, but if the computer isn't configured to boot from a cd, depending on the computer motherboard, you will need to access the bios setup, either by pressing the 'DEL', 'F1', or 'F10' key during boot, then under a section called 'boot' or 'advanced-->peripherals' should be the settings on changing the boot sequence, if it's set to this sequence:- 1........REMOVABLE DEVICE 2........HD 3........CDROM 4........NETWORK (not available on some systems) You will need to change the sequence to:- 1.......CDROM 2.......REMOVAL DEVICE 3.......HD 4.......NETWORK (Not available on some systems) Then press the relevent key to 'save & exit', this will enable you to use an ME bootable cd to re-install ME on a clean hard drive.
