How to reformat


I think you mean just format the hard drive if so insert your windows installation disk then select drive options and format the drive then install windows again. Formatting the drive will delete everything so if this isnt what you want dont do it. Hope this helps

The original hard drive on my Dell Dimension 5150 has fried, and I bought a new one and installed windows on it again. Is it possible for me to retrieve the files on the other hard drive with just the...


If your drive is fried, then file recovery may not be possible.

If you are using a SATA hard drive that uses the thin cable with a small connection at the ends, you will also need to connect a power cable as well.

you should be able to hook up your old hard drive into your PC if you have a second SATA cable and a spare SATA power connection.

Splitters are availible at most PC shops, and should not cost very much.

Once again, if your drive is completely fried or burnt out, file recovery may not be possible.

Are you using the classic login type or the kind where you click on your icon with the name next to it, to login to windows XP? If it's the classic type, Type in "Administrator", (I noticed you may have misspelled as "Administrater" which is not correct), and instead of typing in the admin password, click on Cancel, and this should log you in just fine on Windows XP.

What type of hard drive is it. Sound like you put in a SATA hard drive. You need to load the drivers for that hard drive. During the Windows XP setup it gives you an option to load 3rd party drivers that what is sounds like you need to to.

Dell xps 600 windows booting problem


You would probably do right to reinstall Windows. The bios handed off to Windows long before the splash screen comes up. It is probably a faulty driver or corrupt registry entry. If it was me I would reload Windows

Dell Dimension 2400 with secondary SATA hard drive keeps crashing


generally all computers can handle a secondary hard drive. i myself am a dell tech. why not try to increase the wattage output of your power supply from the present 200 or 250 watts to at least 300 or 350 watts to give enough provisions for additional devices that will be connected to your computer. normally a hard drive will get burned or fried because of a loose power cable connection. data cable will never fry your hard drive. try running the hard drive diagnostics if it passes then it should work well. try also using chkdsk /r in the command prompt to fix your hard drive if the damage is not that extensive.
