Question about Computers & Internet

I accidentally interupted the initial installation process on a new Dell Dimension 9200c desk top computer. Now I cannot get it to finish the installation. I keep getting an error message saying the installation was interupted and i should restart the computer, which gets me to the same error message over and over again. How can i get the operating system to install?

If you have a spare computer or can get to someone that can help, remove your hard drive and install it as a "data" drive in another system. The other system can then remove the partial installation and start over. A last resort would be to reformat the drive. It might be possible to reformat it with a DOS (or Windows 95/98) boot floppy. Be very careful as DOS does not always work well with newer hard drives.

Ho do I initiate a destructive recovery on a Dell Dimension 3000 Desk top computer?


You need to use the Recovery cds that came with your computer. Insert the Installation cd in the cd drive, reboot the computer and select format and restore from the menu.
If you do not have the Recovery cds, then a Windows cd will format and install XP, you will need to use the license (productID, that is on the sticker on the back of the unit)

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

DESK TOP TO WIRELESS CONNECTION


First make sure you have the correct drivers installed, go to the Belkin website to get the latest drivers for your device.

Next make sure that your router is set to broadcast, and that is in Wireless G mode. You can find that information at the router manufacturers website.

Transfering my outlook and emails folders from my old desk to my new acer desk top


No because outlook is an installed program in your older computer so you can't transfer install programs from one hard drive to the next.

Sorry

Returning To The Original Operating State


you may find that you have two partitions on your hard drive showing as a seperate drive in my computer, here there is normally a backup of your pc's initial setup.

There should be a wizard somewhere on your programme files to help you with the backup restoration process, but make sure you save anything important to a cdrom before you start as the system will be completely formatted and installed as new.

Subwoofer not working


Hi, What speakers (+sub) are you using (brand/model)? You have to consider whether it is basic 2, or 5.1 or 7.1. the Dell Dimension 9200C uses multiple sound connector at the back, the center/LFE connector (orange) should go to the sub-woofer in a 5.1 or 7.1 speaker system. An online manual is available @ http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim9200C/en/SM_EN/about.htm Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things are or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.
