    Hi sberg569, I gather from the header you posted "Trying to upgrade 440lx", into a computer system. The PC keeps shutting down & you can not complete the installation of win XP?

    The word upgrade means you had a working system. I need more information about your problem. The model number of the motherboard. EX: Asus, Abit, Gigabyte, ECT?

    Or the name of the system, EX: Dell, HP, e-Machine ECT. Did your system function correctly before you attempted the software upgrade?

Check your other post's regarding this issue sberg. I provided a link for you to download Darik's Boot And Nuke software. This software will completely wipe your drive & allow XP to install.

Satellite PSAGCA-06M01N keeps restarting when i try to upgrade windows


Computer randomly restarts is not something unique happened to you. Sometimes there is a dreadful total crash of the system and sometime it sends different errors, upon restarting nothing happens.

-- First of all disable the auto-restart option from your control panel settings
-- Remove any recently installed maliciously software/add-on or any other application or toolbar.
-- Try to cool down your PC as the overheating due to overuse of computer may result in system freezing and sudden restarting.
-- Update your BIOS.
-- Update the drivers
-- Make it sure the error is not caused by the deficient power supply. You may try to change the power supply.
-- Conduct the registry clean up scan for quick fix of the problem.
-- Remove flashy games and/or untrusted antiviruses/antispywares. Conduct the security scan through the most powerful scanners only.
I would recommend to use a system utility tool like PCFresher to fix windows errors and registry errors. Then try updating hope problem is fixed.

Are you trying to set up a raid configuration? If not I would reformat using the 98 disk and reinstall. (You may be able to skip installing 98, try installing xp first and it should ask for the disk containing the software (win98) that qualifies for the upgrade.

HP 520 Notebook. Shuts down before installing new OS.


I agree a clean install is always the better, fresh start J
OK it sounds like missing drivers, what you have to do is create a new installation CD that will load the drivers for your laptop as it boots. I haven’t try this method with windows 7, but I know it works well with Windows XP. Try and create a new Windows XP CD with the drivers see: http://unattended.msfn.org/unattended.xp/view/web/35/
The start a new installation with this Windows XP CD and reformat you computer, after that you can do a new upgrade to windows 7

HP530 shuts down within 15 seconds as it loads XP


Probabpy an XP problem, start XP in safe mode (press F8) as it is loading.
If it runs then it is probably a driver problem. Try restarting in the last good configuration. Keep posting until the problem is resolved.

SLOW PC


If you really only have 256MB of Ram then that would be the first thing to change. I would upgrade to at least 1GB of RAM for XP. There are also many unnecessary services that are loaded on start up. You can find many tips on speeding up XP by shutting down services you don't need.

The memory increase should make a big difference.

My dasktop doesn't completely load windows xp setup


hi, did you run the upgrade adviser, before running xp set up? this will tell you any upgrades or possible problems you may have. it is probably a hardware compatibility, as the aging p3 systems would have. if you can, go back with the older operating system, then run upgrade adviser, you may be able to correct he issue, i still have a pentium 2 450,that i put xp on years ago-it runs great for a p2-so it is not impossible to do.also did you do a quick or full format in the fat or ntfs, do full, and try the fat format for that p3. hope this helps you, good luck! need more help post again.

Cannot upgrade pc to xp


Hi again sberg569, I see more post from you on this subject. If ME was installed by a manufacture (Not by you). There is most likely a small hidden partition at the top of the drive. Too small to allow windows to install. Suggest you download & run Darik's Boot And Nuke software. http://www.dban.org/download Choose your bootable software. Floppy disk or CD-ROM software. Darik's software will completely wipe the drive including any hidden partitions. Once completed window should install normally.

Partition


The best way to do this is to do a complete install of XP and wipe (format) your drive of everything else. You will need to back anything up that you want first though. Make sure you format it as NTFS

XP will run slow unless you have at least 512 mb. of ram and a 1Gig. processor. It can run on less but I do not install it on anything less because it will drag the computer down. More than I said is even better for it to run. If you need help loading it let me know. I will try my best to explain to you how to do this. You must already know since you tried already. Just make sure you do a clean install. Do you have the upgrade CD or the Full Version CD?
I can't fix this for you, but if I helped you get it fixed, please rate it as a fixya not a helpful rating. These ratings let me be allowed to help you and others in the future. If you need more help, feel free to keep asking, but keep the original information so I can see it.

Do I really need a floppy disk to do an upgrade bios?


Of course floppy is the easiest but if you configure a flash drive with flash drive utilities to be bootable, and the BIOS will support it you can flash from the USB flash drive.
