Dear Sir,
Please port details questions to help us to serve you better. The answer which I'll be providing you is based on assumption on the little data you have provided.
Press F1 during startup,in BIOS settings check whether the New processor you have installed in shown or not. I think you also need to upgraded you BIOS. Go to your motherboard manufacturer's site and there you can find the software for upgrading BIOS.
Please rate me appropriately if you are satisfied with my answer,in case, if you want any clarification please get back to me.

I installed the game whenever i open it i get Remark on monitor Out of Range. 53.5khz 85hz


That error message means the game uses a screen refresh rate that is beyond or below what your monitor can display.

You must find the game option (setting) somewhere in the game and change it.

60 hertz to 75 hertz is normal for most monitors.

When i start the computer the monitor doesnt go and the red light indicating an error apears. what that can be please?


Dear User,

Please refix the is display cable properly and check if the issues resolves.

Kindly check if any beep sound comes. To check is the system board is fine. Please press the Num Lock for 2-3 times and check if it responds(Led On/Off)
To check the monitor status, please remove the display cable which is coming from monitor and connected with System(Cpu), if it displays the message on screen then it passes the monitor test and indicates that Monitor is fine.

Please share the result.

Regards,

Getting a No sync message on monitor ,computer


No sync message could be for 2 reasons.

1. Loose VGA cable
2. Wrong driver installed or configuration made is out of monitor range

For loose cable you can fix it up from both ends, on CPU and on Monitor itself.
For second reason, we just have to delete display driver from Device Manager. Follow below method to delete driver

Start computer in safe mode. To start in safe mode, as soon the system boots up press F8 and select Safe Mode. After you log into the safe mode. Right click the "My Computer" icon on desktop, go to properties,
go to "Hardware" tab, Click on "Device Manager", go to "Display driver" and expland it, select the driver below the expanded "Display Driver" and press delete to remove the driver. Now restart the system and it will automatically adjust the display driver for you.

HI THERE, I AM TRYING TO INSTALL A FRESH COPY OF WINDOWS ONTO A ANOTHER COMPUTER, I AM USING THE CD'S I ALWAYS USE SO THEY ARE BOOTABLE DISKS, I KEEP GETTING MESSAGE BACK "DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM...


Hello,

First you need to make sure that the CD drive is selected as the first boot device.

You can set that by going into BIOS setup by pressing Del/F2 during system startup OR during startup press F12 and select CD drive from the boot device selection menu.

Press Enter.

See if the system is able to start from the disc.


Thanks

Install xp creating new partition


Real easy. Start computer and press F1 or what ever you do to get into the BIOS. When the BIOS screen appears find boot options. Enter it and select cd or DVD sequence to boot first. Before you leave the BIOS make sure you save the BIOS. When the computer starts up and this time it will passes the BIOS setup, a prompt on the screen will display a message press any key to boot from cd or DVD. Of course when that message appears you want to hit at least one key on the keyboard. Next, it should say loading windows and a blue screen will appear.
When things stop it will prompt you to press enter to install xp and then F8 to promise your doing things right.
Now comes where it says do you want a new partition and next, shows the memory available. Here's where you to delete if there's a partition already there or create one. I think you press c to create and press enter. Next it will ask if you want to install a fresh copy xp. enter yes.
From here on out, you shouldn't have to do anything for at least 45min. It will turn it self off and on and eventually start having you answer question to set-up xp account.
