Just bought a laptop cheap as on trade me for extra battery was told that it was broken but fired it up and works but is asking me for a user name and password to log on to windows. can i over ride it or...


keep the laptop, hope it got a working cd-rom/dvd-drive !(if not, take-out /replace the harddisk)
-win xp has to be removed from harddisk,
the hd must be formatted so you got a blank hd to set up your new system

you'll need :
- antoher PC with internet connection and cd/dvd-burner
- a win98 installation cd or bootable savecopy of it,
- a new win-xp install cd plus cd-key
- a program called PC Wizard(download)
and a bit of time...(one night or two:-)

follow instructions:

if you can enter bios (press F1 or F2 or Del)
during booting), youre lucky...

enter bios while booting, in the menu look for boot otions or devices, change order of boot devices, so that cd/dvd-drive is 1st, then save and exit (F10)
insert win98-CD, boot from cd, try to setup win98, you'll be asked to erase/ format all data/installations/partitions
on the harddisk (drive c:,probably), do so, format the drive using the FAT32-file system,
then end installation without fully setting up win 98.
now you should have a blank disk witout any operation system on it.

now put in win xp cd, go through the whole installation process
install and run pc wizard(it'll tell you all hardware devices of the laptop)
get the proper drivers for the notebook for win-xp from the net(google might be helpful)
install them.
happy computing!

if all this did not work, remove the harddisk,(you'll have to unscrew a lot of the laptop)
replace it by a new s-ata ide-drive()and..
erh.. come again then, this is a long process as well

I want to reinstall my window xp operating system i set the dvd rom as the first boot but it says not found


turn off your pc, open it, and check cables and connectors, check the jumper settings on your DVD drive. if you want, you can isolate the problem by simply connecting only the DVD, disconnect the Hard Drive and test.

When installing a used hd...PC says no hard drive found


Do you have another harddisk installed already if so, you need to change the jumper settings maybe both the hardisks are having the jumper positioned as master device. which u need to set ur OS or Operating software HDD to master and the second one as a slave.

How to install os


This is a little difficult but it can B done :) Firstly I dunno if ya need to re-format ya drive? perhaps first ya could try to "Repair" of Win98? If that doesn't work,then, perhaps ya may have to re-format. If the Win98 is on a SEPARATE drive or Partition this also makes a difference.... Basically ... repair/re-install win98, then do a repair of ya Boot menu for XP, as Win98 sets up an incorrect Boot up for XP, and thus must be "Fixed" so XP will boot & show a Dual boot menu.. here are some links to help you step by step... http://pcworld.about.com/magazine/2109p156id111652.htm http://www.thehindubusinessline.com/ew/2004/08/30/stories/2004083000250400.htm

My dvd rw is not detected


When installing SP2 version, you possibly corrupted the drivers for the DVD. It is possible there are different drivers for the DVD between XP and XP (sp2). Go to the laptop mfg website and download the newest drivers for the DVD.
