Seems like you will need to get your hands on a restore disk or windows installation cd for the version you have.

You will need to either restore the computer to the original state or install a fresh installation of windows from the setup cd, after that you need to get the drivers for the computer from medion support.

    Ok, the boot order must be wrong if its not starting from the cd.

    when you turn the computer on, it will say in a corner of the screen, what button to press to enter setup / cmos / computer setup / etc etc

    you need to go into the bios, find the boot settings and make sure the CD ROM or first on the boot order.

    heres a tutorial on that

    Can you be more spesific about the problem?

  • Ekse Jan 22, 2009

    Are you trying to perform a recovery from the dydtem files disk?

    Instead I would suggest to look into the contents of the disk in windows.

  • Ekse Jan 22, 2009

    try them in another computer and see if they boot, if they don't and the windows disk boots on the other computer also.. then the problem is simply that the disk is not made bootable.

How to format


To format a hard drive or array, select it from
the Target Disk drop box. Choose the file
system desired from the File System dropbox
(internal drives can only be formatted with XFS).
Note that FAT32 has a 4 gigabyte filesize limit
for individual files. If you choose FAT32 for your
file system, you will not be able to store single
files larger than 4 gigabytes on the drive. Use of
the XFS or EXT3 file systems is recommended.
Press Select Target Disk when done, and then
Start format.
Depending on the size of the target hard disk or
array, a disk format may take several hours to
complete. Shares on the LinkStation will not be
accessible during the disk format.
Note: Reformatting a drive will erase all data
on it! Back up any data on the drive before
reformatting it.

My comp doesnt instal xp.a hard disk error appear after loading files.systemroot>system32>config.i had instaled 2 copies of the said xp sadly i mistakenly deleted part of the xp.help coz my comp is...


you need to do this on a brand new low level formatted, and high level formatted hard drive. you must have the install disk, and a internet connection, and a properly running system available to work along side.

You can reformat this old drive; however, personally, I wouldn't bet on using it. hard drives are cheap these days. let me know.

My hard drive crashed, how do I reformat a new one for this system?


You'll need the setup disk for the operating system such as XP or Vista. Format the disk in the setup when prompted to reformat or leave the current file system intact.

Acer Desk Top-DVD/RW-No Function,Virus in system,antivirus to be loaded.Data Backup & Formatting,reloading all software.


Your PC is virus infected. Although you can install anti virus and run update for your protection but still the antivirus software can't be installed. Since pop up notice tells you to back up files for reformatting, then you need to transfer all data to drive D. If your formatting is on drive C, your files on the other drive willnot be deleted as long as you have to reformat the drive for your OS,.
Install first antivirus after the formatting and update your virus protector. After that you can transfer and install some of components in your system.
Most of the times viruses destroys your CD ROM drive and other systems.
Hope this will help you.
Enjoy.

Sandisk 16 GB USB Drive wont accept large files says disk is full


What is the USB drive formatted as? Look in My Computer then right click the USB drive, select Properties. See what it says under "File System". My guess is the drive is formatted as FAT32. Now FAT32 has a size limitation of 4GB for a single file, which would explain the error. To get over this you need to reformat the USB drive as NTFS. Then it will accept the 6.95GB file. You can format the drive by right clicking it again and selecting "Format" ... choose NTFS from the drop down menu. Be aware that any data already on the drive will be wiped by the format so be sure to back it up before formatting.

Hard disk for medion MD96640 stated as 320GB but laptop gives size C: total 268GB and Recover D: as 29.2GB, this only totals to 297.2GB


This is normal as the Harddisk will never give You the full space  mentioned  
It reserves  some space for the formatting information.
some times  If ur disk is formatted in NTFS it takes  up more space than FAT formatting.

So this is normal .

Even on My comp i have something like 150Gb  when it states 160GB so i guess urs is normal.

hope this will solve your curiosity

Acer L100 comp wont start past the windows loading screen


Hi,

If I were you I would reformat your PC. In short words reformatting you Delete everything from the pc, the reinstall the OS(Operating System). Once the process is done, your PC is alot faster, and fresh. What happens to most people's PC it gets bogged down, and you go along time without cleaning it it will crash, just like a car.

There are hidden folders within the OS such as the prefetch where files are kept to help you boot problems faster, but the prefetch gets bigger each day, and isn't really needed.

To clean the prefetch you would go to Start>Run>type "prefetch" without quotes, once it opens the folder delete ALL files in it, a shortcut is to click any fil inside the prefetch, and press "ctrl+A" that will select all the files and now simply press Delete, and confirm Yes.

Something else to help maximize your system is to do a "disk clean up" access that by going to start>all programs>accessories>system tools

I hope this helped you maintain a better system in the future, if I were you I would go ahead and do the reformat then use the tips I just gave you to keep your system in shape.

Also another top make sure you keep your system clean of threats,(malware,spyware,adware,etc...) I would recommend Norton or Mcfee, I go with www.grisoft.com and www.eset.com, another one I like is www.trendmicro.com its up to you which you choose.

Good Luck!
