Laptop shuts down during Windows XP install


When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is the problem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are clogged with dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed air to do this.

INSTALLING WINDOWS XP ON A SATA HARD DRIVE


SATA HARD DRIVE ? XP INSTALLATION
The problem is that XP installation CD does not have a SATA driver, unless you have a SATA drive on a disk etc. and can install the driver when XP asks for a hard drive driver then, XP cannot detect the hard disk and therefore won't install XP.
The FIX.
Go into the BIOS and disable the SATA drive (enable IDE emulation), this will make XP think it is a IDE/PATA hard disk. Then you can install XP normally. When Windows has been installed then install all the device drivers (including the SATA driver), then shut down and boot up and got into the BIOS and enable the SATA drive.
If enabling the SATA in the BIOS does not allow the computer to boot up with SATA hard drive then change the BIOS back to what it was previously.

How to enter the mac mini BIOS


Macintosh Computers do not have BIOS, they use OpenFirmware.
You can get into OpenFirmware using this Key Sequence at startup: Apple - Option - O - F
Hold down all 4 keys and turn on your Mac, keep holding them down until you hear two chimes.
The OpenFirmware looks like this:

Acer Aspire One loops on start up screen. All it does is show the acer logo, then shows the ''windows was shut down improperly'' screen with all those options and then goes to the windows xp start up...


Try tapping F8 when the acer window shows, when it shows the muliboot option, scroll down to "Last Known Good Configuration" and hit enter. If it does not boot normally, you will have to get an external dvd drive and boot off the drive with a windows installation disc to perform a repair.

IT WON'T GO TO BOOT MENU. WON'T GIVE THE OPTION TO SAFE MODE. AND SHUTS DOWN WHEN I CLICK ON THE RECOMMENDED REBOOT. i RAN A DIAGNOSTIC AND IT SAID THAT THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG WITH THE S.A.T.A. DISK...


Boot to your Windows CD, If XP go to recovery console (R at the first prompt) and run the CHKDSK /R command. If that fails t fix, then boot to the XP CD again an do a repair installation of Windows.
If Vista, Boot to the DVD and run the Repair my Computer option. It may take as many as 5 runs thru the repair process to fix, and if that fails, again, a repair installation of Windows.
If that fails to resolve, then a CLEAN install of Windows. If that doesn't work the replace the hard drive.

HP 520 Notebook. Shuts down before installing new OS.


I agree a clean install is always the better, fresh start J
OK it sounds like missing drivers, what you have to do is create a new installation CD that will load the drivers for your laptop as it boots. I haven’t try this method with windows 7, but I know it works well with Windows XP. Try and create a new Windows XP CD with the drivers see: http://unattended.msfn.org/unattended.xp/view/web/35/
The start a new installation with this Windows XP CD and reformat you computer, after that you can do a new upgrade to windows 7

HELP!!! Computer stopped working when anit-virus was installed?????


Assuming you are using windows xp. 1. Boot up into windows safe mode by pressing the "F8" key during boot process. 2. Choose "Safe Mode without networking" on the menu and after entering your desktop a pop-up will appear telling you that you are using windows safe mode, just press "OK" then uninstall Norton Anti-Virus. 3. Shut-down and/or reboot computer. Another alternative would be to boot into safe mode and perform a system restore. If you choose to do this, you still need to uninstall Norton Anti-Virus because a system restore will only fix just system files not programs that were installed. In other words, you will have a partial installation of Norton Anti-Virus in your computer. As to why this happened, could be a compatability issue with the use of Norton and some other program. Good luck.
