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 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.

Dvd not recognizing discs

it could be that your drive needs cleaning with a cleaner disc that you can purchase quite cheaply. If your a smoker or use your comp in dusty conditions this is probably the case. You haven't stated if your comp actually sees the drive before you insert a disc (also check the drivers are installed in your device manager), look in my computer and look for the dvd drive prob "D" if it does see the drive and the drivers are ok then you can if you are very gentle use a cotton bud to clean the laser lens (slightly damp) but you must be gentle, this of course is if you are using a laptop that you can see the lens on when you open the drawer. If it is a desktop then its a cleaning disc, it might work, it might not.

I have forgot my password and i can not log on to my laptop what can i do ??

You will need another computer that can burn CD's, and obviously a blank disk
Follow THIS LINK and read the article/reviews on the top Windows password recovery applications. Once you choose the one that's best for you, download and install it on Comp #2, follow the instructions and burn the .iso file to a disc.
Access the BIOS on Comp#1 (the one you can't login to) and set the boot order so that the CD/DVD-RW drive is first. Insert the CD you made, and reboot Comp#1. The CD will automatically do it's thing.

Probs running loaded program (ceasar III)

Not a hardware problem. Either the game was badly installed - the security software on your computer has most likely blocked the DRM from your disk - or the disk is worn out and the new optical unit can't pick it up - use the older one..

My laptop is really slow

It could be due to clogged Registry. Use a good registry cleaner to do that. Even I had the same prob. my laptop used to take 20 mins to boot. After cleaning the registry it runs now.

Operating system not found

This means it cannot find the Windows OS files because either:-
The hard disk has failed or it needs reseating.
or the hard disk controller has failed.
or the Windows files have been deleted or corrupted (maybe by virus)

Try reseating the hard drive.
If the hard disk is faulty, you need a new one.
Try using your recovery CD disk.
Try re-installing Windows

A disk read error occurred. the comp. said press ctrl+alt+del

The computer cannot find the operating system, the disk error message means it cannot find the hard disk, you most likely have a faulty hard disk or less likely a faulty disk controller.

You can test the hard disk by removing it and connecting it to a USB hard drive adapter and plug it into a working computer's USB port. If this computer cannot detect this drive as an external drive then you will know your hard drive is faulty ad you need to buy a new one and install Windows and programs etc..
