Question about Dell Dimension 3000 PC Desktop

1 Answer

I want to rom drive skype from a CD to ram...any O.S.

To tell you the truth I can not even get skype to work with MEPIS 3.4.3 or MEPIS 7.02!!! (even if I install to a hard drive...which I do not want to use) Infact; the only O.S. I have actually made work with skype is my copy of vista ultimate!!! I am trying to get it to work with windows 2000 right now!!!
I do not have a phone now!!!! My vista got a bug despite good anti-virous
programs!!! I want a fast re-load or reboot that includes skype because my last set-up took all day and only lasted about 6 weeks...

Unfortunately i don't think you will be able to find a skype image, it usually isnt included on a restore image... the only way i can think of is to reimage your HD and download skype, but make sure you have the right version and admin privilege on the login acct on the machine.

I just assembly desktop with gigabyte motherboard and ADM CPU, RAM etc...after that i install os Window XP in the 500GB hard drive, the installation done successful, but the problem come out after i done...


Hello,

This is not a hardware problem, it's a BIOS problem and install problem. Here is my suggestion:

1. Go into the BIOS and set your boot as a) CD-ROM/DVD-ROM
b) Hard Drive
[and it does not matter what is next just as long as the first two are as above.]

2. Reinstall windows os, when ask you want to format drive and install. (This will erase EVERYTHING and reformat the drive space.)

3. When the install is finish, REMOVE the Windows disc and reboot the system.

This should solve your problem. Sometimes if a file was not installed correctly and you leave the install disk in, windows will try to reinstall the files and go from bad to worst.

Good Luck

I am trying to reinstall windows xp prof but i keep getting the blue screen and the system keeps shutting down, i have tried a different hard drive but get the same error.


unplug all devices except the hard drive and 1 cd/dvd rom drive. disable the audio device and any other unnecessary devices within the BIOS and remove all pci cards. remove all but 1 ram stick, and try using different ram sticks, one at a time, while trying to boot. if it boots, with 1 ram stick, 1 hard drive and 1 dvd/cd drive then try adding/reenabling the other devices one at a time, until you find the device that keeps it from booting.

if your pc wont load with just a hard drive, cd rom and 1 stick of ram, then it is prolly trashed. if removing/disabling one of the other devices (such as the sound card or the modem card) allows it to boot, then you have found what needs replaced.

My sony vaio laptop went a black screen with a white hyphen in the upper left hand corner. It will not cut on and will not reboot


The most-likely cause is a malfunctioning (or even "dead") disk-drive.
Without the disk-drive, Windows cannot be loaded into your RAM.
So, what you get is that "lonely" underscore character.

Find a Microsoft Windows XP "installation" CD-ROM.
Insert it into your CD-drive.
Hold down the ON/OFF button until your computer turns off.
Press the ON/OFF button, to start-up your computer,
and tell your computer to boot from the CD-ROM device.
If it does boot, then the rest of your computer (excluding the disk-drive) is working fine.

Replace the disk-drive, and reinstall Windows, to "revive" your computer.

CD-ROM drive doesn't acknowledge DVD-ROM, what's wrong?


CD-ROMs dont play dvd becuase they are not designed to read dvd.

If a dvd drive for your model is not available, you can buy an external usb dvd drive.
That should solve your problem

Hi,

Are you getting this error with RPCRT4.DLL. If you do you need to replace this file from the Xp disk.
If you cannot follow, send me a message at rocksmani@gmail.com and hope we can talk over gmail or skype and i'll guide you through.

It may be difficult for you to do it.But if you could do, here the steps are :--
1.Use the Windows XP Recovery Console to replace the RPCRT4.dll file with the original version. To do this, follow these steps:
Insert your Windows XP CD-ROM into the computer's CD-ROM drive or DVD-ROM drive, and then restart your computer from the CD-ROM.
Some computers may require that you modify the basic input/output system (BIOS) settings before you can start the computer from a CD-ROM. For information about how to modify BIOS, see your computer documentation.
At the Welcome to Setup screen, press R to start the Recovery Console.
Press the number key that corresponds to the installation that you want to repair, and then press ENTER.
Type the Administrator password, and then press ENTER.
With the Windows XP CD-ROM still in the CD-ROM drive or DVD-ROM drive, type the following commands, pressing ENTER after each command:
cd system32
ren RPCRT4.dll RPCRT4.old
CD-ROM_or_DVD-ROM_Drive_Letter:
cd \i386
expand RPCRT4.dl_ BootDriveLetter:\windows\system32
exit

It'll fix your problem. :-)

Have an acer aspire 7720 gemstone and the cd drive will just not work on it


Sounds like the drivers were removed at some point. Ok,
http://www.cdrom-drivers.com/
Follow that link, Match it to what you have for a CD Rom drive. They have everything, even the old stuff i still use on my other computers. *If this does not work. Then check the cables of the cd rom drive and make sure the serial cable is in. this is a thin long strip cable that goes from your motherboard to your cd rom. BUT before you even touch anything, make sure to touch something made of real metal to remove all static electricity that is on your body, ive goofed plenty of times working on a system by not doing that and toasted a few drives that way.

Now if all else fails, and i am saying it would have to mean that the drive is dead. You will need to buy a new drive. But ITS Very hard to remove the drivers for a CD Rom drive because of the fact that they are in BIOS of the CPU. So unless you were in there doing something, the cd rom drive should work. But CD Rom drives have a work like of 2 years at max usually, its rare to find drives that last longer than that unless they were barely used. Hence why i still have some really old drives for my server system.
