Question about Microsoft Operating Systems

1 Answer

Unable ro open my hard disk, only explore it.

Computer - ACER 1650 laptop.
os - windows xp home.
I can't remember when this problem starts (not much time).
I have NORTON 360 software.
the problem: open My computer. double-click Disk C (OR D). get the following message: ''windows cannot find 'RECYCLERS-5-7-63-100026113-100029708-100022673-2715.com'. make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again. To search for a file, click the start button, and then click search''.
BUT the system enable explore these hard disks and do all needed tasks.
the problem is only with disks, not with directories.

Thanks,
Avi Sadan

Pcg 61213w


if the sony laptop already has an OS on it or a newer version of windows than XP, you have to uninstall the current OS on the sony vaio. also, that means reformatting the Hard Drive on the sony which actually wipes it clean. Before you do that, you should have the original disk of the sony pc drivers installation or you need to go to the product(sony vaio) web site so you can download those drivers for (PCG-61213W) to disk or flash drive. after wiping Hard drive, you can install the XP, then the drivers that you downloaded. However, viaos are strange pc's so i would ask Sony if this XP install will be compatible with the Sony pc hardware components first. good luck.

Trying to boot from windows CD and not working


If its the full windows xp cd by booting it from the cd drive it will erase everything and ask if you want to upgrade or advanced install I think. Your correct in choosing the atapi cd-rom as 1st boot device. The cd should be in the drive on startup. IDE is the type of hard disk drive. I'm guessing the FDD stands for floppy disk drive which you might not have that many but you have that many bay windows available.

Put disk in, shut down computer, Start computer and it should give you the xp disk contents. Be aware of data loss though.

Is the disk you have xp pro? If not, just do the xp home or whatever is on the disk. You may have to format your hard drive to clear it to accept the windows. Get plenty of advise before you do anything permanent like formating your hard drive. Get any factory disks that you can that will have your bios on them.

Windows xp professional version 2002,service pack 2


after removing the virus ... some of the system file has became unstable .... so you are facing this type of problem ....
so the solution is to reinstall the windows xp professional sp2 again ....
if you have very important programs which you dont have back up then just you have to do is you start the set up by boot disk of windows xp sp2 (actually all windows cd s will be the boot disk only if we just copy the exact windows cd with out changing anything especially "cdlabel")
so just insert the boot disk cd in to the drive and make the boot from cd (it must be done b4 os loads) so just have the check in bios that the first boot device is cdrom and then boot the set from cd then it will ask "press enter to install winxp" you must press enter then after it will detect the partitions for "previously installed operating system" if it detect the installed "windows xp" means they it will prompt for repair option here... you must press R here ... if you press R at the first time before detecting i mean in the previous step than this means it will take you to recovery console ....
so besure to follow these steps....
after giving repair it will repair and ur problem will be solved
