There would be an option to select
"repair" instead of complete installation
once you boot from the XP CD
Choosing repair will not format your
Hard Drive or OS

RES.SIR, PLEASE TELL ME HOW TO ADD(INSTALL) THE MISSING FILES OF OPERATING SYSTEM TO RUN WINDOWS PROPERLY,WITHOUT FORMATTING CONCERN DRIVE.PLS PROVIDE THE PROPER PROCEDER. THANK YOU.


Hi

Use the OPERATING SYSTEM CD/DVD to run the REPAIR MODE.

REPAIRING THE OPERATING SYSTEM just load or install corrupted or missing files from your operating system thus will not delete any of your files from your computer.

Please rate and make a comment if you find this solution very helpful and might help others as well. Post more comments if you need more help.

Regards and thank you for using Fixya !

Xp loads and goes black screen


Good day sir/maam, there are several reasons why XP do that,
  1. Bad memory, replace your memory with a good one.
  2. Bad XP installation. you may need to setup your XP again.
  3. Watch your DVD drive, DVD disk installer.
  4. Hard DIsk bad sector. make sure you format the Hard disk as you reinstall the OS.
  5. A bad power supply. If your XP keeps on resetting and turning off.
Make sure you check them one by one. hope this helps.

How to install XP in toshiba Satellite L45-S7423 laptop


You cannot uninstall Windows Vista, but you can reinstall your previous operating system, which then replaces Windows Vista. To reinstall your old operating system, you must have the original installation disc. Back up your programs and files, insert the installation disc into your computer, and then reinstall the old operating system. To regain the hard disk space used by Windows Vista, reformat the disk during the reinstallation process. After reinstalling your previous operating system, reinstall your programs and files.

Removal of incomplete, unwanted os setup


Hey sorry about your pc sir..

OK first let me explain to you the problem you are having and the various ways we can solve it ..

ok the reason some of the files were removed is cause they were infected..
The cd you have is windows Xp, but during windows updates you updated with service pack 2, so obiously the system will ask for windpws xp cd with service pack 2,, (MICROSOFT BUGS :( )

now you have a mbr with 2 operating systems. cause the main mbr is non functionaly a secondary oe was created leaving your current file system intact, but with the bad effects of having 2 operating systems on the same partation.. hence slow sloppy behaviour..

we can remove boot sector and rewrite mbr to remove the bad operating system but that would not help the speed..

Here is what i believe is your best solution and the one i recommend..

1.) BURN all your important data to a dvd or cd so you wont loose it

2.) Boot off the the windows xp cd.

3.) delete the entire partation and format the drive(full format)

4.) reinstall windows and drivers and software..

NB.. when windows ask if you want to repair select no and install a fres copy,, when it ask if you want to leve the file system intact say no, delete the partation, and it will say unpartationed space, hit enter there and select full format..

How to install os


This is a little difficult but it can B done :) Firstly I dunno if ya need to re-format ya drive? perhaps first ya could try to "Repair" of Win98? If that doesn't work,then, perhaps ya may have to re-format. If the Win98 is on a SEPARATE drive or Partition this also makes a difference.... Basically ... repair/re-install win98, then do a repair of ya Boot menu for XP, as Win98 sets up an incorrect Boot up for XP, and thus must be "Fixed" so XP will boot & show a Dual boot menu.. here are some links to help you step by step... http://pcworld.about.com/magazine/2109p156id111652.htm http://www.thehindubusinessline.com/ew/2004/08/30/stories/2004083000250400.htm
