Re: C1 Fault

C1 refers to a memory fault, so check that the memory timings according to the manual are correct or that the memory is not faulty.

I add another dvd rom to my PC but it refuses to load my operating system. my OS is windoow xp celeron iv with 40G hard disk. Desktop computer with 256GHz ram. I eqully returned the rom using corect...

there may be a clash of IRQs of the DVD ROMs....
the 1st DVD ROM has been alotted a IRQ and then you connected the 2nd DVD ROM but the OS does not know which DVD ROM drive to look for while loading the OS to look for the boot CD....based on the setting in BIOS for boot order....
plus you may have to define both the DVD roms as primary and slave by making changes in the jumper cables...
(google and loacte the solution for the jumper setting for that)

My pc won't boot from cd-rom... Bios recognizes both cd-rom drive and hdd, and boot sequence is set to boot from cd-rom but when it comes to boot from the windows XP install dvd it shows the message...

you are saying two differnt things here.. CDROM and DVD if its a dvd in a CD ROM it will not boot a windows disk if somehow this is written to a DVD Is it original?
Secondly is the Cd ( or DVD drive) actaully working. Being listed in CMOS does not guarantee that.

I know you have listed the drive as DVD but do you have 1 or two drives installed and not have the disk in the recognised drive.; have to eliminatge all possibilities of werror in interpretation here.

So assuming everything appears as it should, then the medial in the drive has to be considered at fault .. dirty disk.. drive needs iris clean, not an original disk, damaged disk, not a boot disk.. just a windows cvopy.;

Windows xp will not boot

If you just installed windows then take the cd out and let the computer reboot on its own. Windows will ask you to replace the OS disk later.

So just restart the computer with nothing in the CD drive.

Also make sure in BIOS that the Hard drive is the first boot device. Don't need the CD drive as first anymore.

See if that helps.

Motherboard specification not available.

Are you uning the recovery CD or a new OS?

A new Os (XP) will allow the second drive even if the old one will not. Of course you can always add a USB hard drive and a USB PCI card to make it all work. What are you using this pc for seems a little old for todays applications. Suggestion If your going to use this that you Replace the main hard drive with a 120GB or larger, new video card at least 256MB if not 512 and at least 1 gig of memory as I believe it will only take a max of 1 gig. you cannot use vista as it requires more resources than this Pc can give to support the OS. you may want to try XP LITE as well one you get XP installed to speed it up a bit!
