How do I reformat the hard drives on a teknota laptop that had a linux based operating system, but now has windows xp professional operating system. I need to down size it to windows 98 because the xp is...


Use a LiveCD with Unix - choose a program with QParted installed. Alternatively, format the hard drive from the Windows 98 installation disc (if that is an option). You need to convert the disc to a FAT32 format and XP uses NTFS.

I hope this helps.

Unmountable boot volume acer 3000 aspire


Unmountable boot volume is Hard Disk Partition lost.
There are two partition on hard disk, one is NTFS & FAT32, if this two partition are damage or lost, then you have lost your data also.
Reformat on it are the best way result and put new windows system.

You can recover your pictures after reformat by using a program RECOVERMYFILES, this program even when your windows system got reformatted can recover all of it.

Good luck!

My 1200 will get as far as the XP screen, then it keeps restarting and never handing off the the windows system, can I do something on my own to repair this?


Due to Windows XP system restarting there's a possibility that you Hard Disk Partition has been remove. This partition called NTFS or FAT32.
Troubleshooting your Windows or repair are necessary you have Bootable XP Disc "Home Edition or Professional Edition".
If you backup your files into two partition like Drive C or Drive D, possible to recover from Drive D but Drive C i think not.
Reformat the Drive C or put Windows System.

to fix this you just need a harddrive above ten gigabytes(each movie can take up ten gigabytes)and the harddrive needs to be ntfs.you can only put fat32 on a drive that is less than 30 gb.i would not recomend using fat32 its faster than ntfs but less secure.you can either get another harddrive with a ntfs files system or reimage the os and make it ntfs.fo that you need a xp installation disk

Getting my pc to recognize new memcard?


You should go ahead and reinstall windows and convert to NTFS. NTFS is more stable than fat 32. So save all your files and reinstall it. This should cure your problems regarding your windows recognizing the extra memory

Toshiba tecra 9000 wont start


Blue screens are generally operating system failure. You will need to reinstall your XP home. Format the drive NTFS, instead of FAT32. If you have any problems during or after the reload, then the hard drive is the failure and will need replaced.

Hello tango13

(01) Which partition(s) is/are FAT32?

(02) Which partition(s) is/are NTFS?

(03) Do you mean your OS partition is FAT32?

A Microsoft Windows OS on FAT32 cannot "see" NTFS partitions. Conversely though, it can see FAT32 and NTFS partitions if the Microsoft OS partition is NTFS.

(04) If your OS is on a FAT32 partition, you need to convert it to NTFS if it is to be able to "see" other NTFS (and FAT32) partitions.

(05) If I didn't understnd you correctly, please, in detail, explain the problem again and tell us what the file system is on each of the partitions you refer to.

(06) What did you install from Toshiba OEM discs?

(07) Do you mean that, after performing one reinstall of WinXP Home that you then used the Toshiba System Restore CDs to restore the system again? (effectively wiping out the 1st reinstall of Windows XP you said you performed)?

(08) What precipitated your reinstalling your OS in the 1st place? (I ask because the reason(s) may be connected to the issues you are currently experiencing.)

(09) Your media player and codec issues are not related to your file system issue(s).

(10) How many **DIFFERENT** commercially-produced DVDs have you attempted to play in your laptop's DVD ROM drive?

(11) The DVD ROM drive spinning and not being able to read your DVDs is either (1) a media compatibility issue or (2) the media is dirty or damaged, or (3) a mechanical issue w/ your DVD ROM drive. In any case, I seriously doubt if it is a software issue. IOW, I believe it is a hardware issue.

(12) Make sure of the following:
(A) The movies you are attempting to play are actually on DVD media and not Blue Ray or some other media type that is incompatible w/ your optical drive (DVD ROM drive).
(B) The media (discs) are clean and not scratched, warped or otherwise damaged.

Please, post back here w/ answers to these questions along w/ any more questions, observations, or comments you might have. Let us know also what else you've tried in attempts to correct the issues you're experiencing.

Thank you
