Cannot format new hard drive and install windows XP on a dell 530S


Are you sure your Recovery Disk has the operating system on it? If so, you should be able to just put it in the cd drive and boot from it to do the install. Make sure you hit the Function Key (F1 thru F12) that will allow you to select which device you want to boot from (Select the CD Drive).

Once it start sometimes you'll still have to watch the screen and press any key to boot from the cd when prompted.

How to intall windows 7 from pen drive...


How to install Windows 7 from a .iso without burning onto a DVD


proxy?url=http%3a%2f%2f1.bp.blogspot.com%2f_uu-faylkkn4%2fs5sjwgyglri%2faaaaaaaaih0%2fwwn5u85pula%2fs400%2fwindows7_logo.jpg&container=focus&gadget=a&rewritemime=image%2f*&refresh=31536000 Windows 7 doesnot allow you to install off the same Hard Disk. But if you didn't want to burn the .iso image of Windows 7 that you downloaded to a new DVD - you can still install it off the .iso file by using the method below.
You will need a portable hard disk / pen drive though.
Incase, you have a portable hard disk or a pen drive - do the following : 1. Get WinRar (www.rarlabs.com) and install the software on your machine. WinRar is similar to winzip but supports many other formats including .iso. 2. Extract the .iso of Win7 to your pen drive / portable hard disk. Place the extracted files into the root of the drive - your other data can be put into folders. 3. Restart your laptop and hold F9 / F2 to enter into boot-menu which gives you a choice to load from. Here select your pen-drive / portable hard disk - usually a USB device.
Done - that's all it takes. You can now go ahead with the normal install process.

There might be a problem in your Hard drive. If you have tried so, Try removing your hard drive and set it up again. If it still doesn't work.You may try using a recovery disk or the cd used to install the operating system. If still the error is appearing, try to reinstall the operating system. if still, I'm sorry you might need to replace your hard drive.

My computer has a black screen and says "Reboot and select Proper Boot device or insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and Press a key." Im not that computer savy. Help!


Your computer tries to load an Operating System from several devices:
* the 'A:' diskette
* the 'C:' disk-drive
* the 'D:' CD-ROM
* any USB device
* via your network-port, "talking" to a "boot-server" on your network.

What probably has happened is that you have no disk in 'A:', and no disk in 'D:', and your disk-drive in 'C:' could *NOT* be read, i.e., your disk-drive has "died", and so your computer says "insert media".

Take your computer to a qualified technician, for complete trouble-shooting.

I have a hp presariocq62 laptop and when i turn it on it doesnt boot up it reas error has occured press ctrl alt del to restart what should i do ty


Either:
* the "data" cable between the motherboard and the disk-drive has become detached
* the "power" cable between the motherboard and the disk-drive has become detached
* the disk-drive has "died"
* your installation of Windows is corrupted

Either way, Windows cannot "start" nor "complete" the boot-up process.

Take your desktop/laptop to a qualified technician, for proper trouble-shooting, replacement of "dead" parts, and repair.
Take the original HP "System Restore" CDs, too,
so that Windows can be re-installed, if necessary.

I installed system mechanic professional and hit the drive scrubber button and wiped out my hard drive completely. i tried to install widows vista and i it won't allow it to install. i get a file error...


In that case it affects the file system of your hard drive that's why it fails the windows vista installation. In order to fix it you need to delete the partition of your hard drive and create a new one using a partition manager software.
If you can connect your hard drive into another computer you can perform a disk partition using the Disk Management (In Windows XP: Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Computer Management > Storage > Disk Management)

To help you with the procedure on "How to use Disk Management."

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/309000

Using Disk Management, after creating a partition in your drive, proceed to formatting.

Problems with boot


the solution to your problem is format. just reformat your pc then after the completion of it, run the checkdisk ( i suspect that your hard disk has a bad sector)

to run the check disk..

1. go to start
2. look for the "run" command then click it
"run" command is a dos prompt that will allow you to key in some commands.

3. type chkdsk c: /f
Using /f will automatically fix the system and hard disk error if there is any

after that test, if the chkdsk found some bad sector in your hard disk, may i suggest that you have to buy new hard disk because using hard disk with bad sector it will face you a trouble in the future.
