Hi. I've just purchased a computer but without the harddrive. I do have the o/s key but I'm not sure how to install the system without disks. Any help would be greatly appreciated!


You have to borrow or buy the install disks (Not the recovery disks), the problem is that not all keys work with all copies of the system.

I have a Dell Latitude C610; after initial 'DELL' screen comes up, the laptop gives one 'beep' then black screen and nothing more- power's still there; can get into setup and boot...


This chart details the specifics of what each 'beep code' means. Usually the codes come in series of 2-3 beeps not just one.
http://www.nullamatix.com/dell-diagnostic-beep-code-troublshooting-chart/
You should also make sure the 'dummy' stuff is done, like remove any floppy disks or CDs from the drive if you have one, and remove any USB drives from the laptop as they may try to boot off of them and not be able to. If you've done that, then check the chart in the link for further information. Sadly a non booting, beeping computer isn't a good sign. If I can be of any more help, please let me know.
Hope this response helps you out.
Best of luck!

Hello my name is Michael. I would appreciate some help i have an acer aspire 5920 ad would like to reformat it however when i start the computer in any mode including safe mode it says start up repair...


Hi Michael,
Its possible to reformat your hard drive by using a DOS boot floppy disk or CD. You can create this disk on another pc then boot your pc from this disk. It will boot your pc to a DOS prompt, usually "C:>" from there you can create partitions, delete partitions and format the hard drive. The command for creating partitions is FDISK.exe. Make sure your boot disk has the FDISK.exe command on it.
Let me know if you require any further assistance regarding this.
Best wishes,
Graemevm

Further question.....


sure I answered this no matter.
cant be sure but I think the winflash is the same as hpq flash for mine .
however , with the rompaq you create a startup disk and it reflashes bios/firmware from start before windows or driver load or anything if know what I mean.
In short you create the disk(bootdisk) restart with the created disk in drive(cd)pc boots from disk reflashes bios and restarts.make sure to remove disk before restart.

Continuing formatting trouble


Hi Shawn, It sounds as though your recovery disk has Norton Ghost incorporated into it, thus the call for the Ghosterr.txt file. Most recovery disks are just modified Windows installation CDs and if you boot to them they will immediately go into the Windows recovery which is what Sandrew was trying to walk you thorough. Having said that I?ve found a few other references to this type of issue and has usually been a result of CD read errors. - Try cleaning the recovery disk, if there are severe or numerous on it or if it is dirty that could be your problem. - If that doesn?t do it try cleaning your CD drive with a good commercial cleaner. - If that fails another option is trying a conventional Windows installation CD. Let us know if you have any other questions and please don?t forget to rate this post.
