Try with another fresh XP disc. Check your Bios if it shows hard disc. If bios show the HDD than its problem with your installation CD. If bios does not show HDD than check your HDD power and IDE cable. Replace IDE cable to diognose. If this does not solve, replace HDD.

Sir, i have purches acer aspire 4736z laptop in 14 apr 2009, with window vista already instelled, but it now says that enter vista product key, and shut down after 1 hour autometically


If you have bought the laptop from any authorised ACER vendors, ie if you purchase the laptop with genuine OEM OS software, the should be a sticker licence with serial No. on it attached with your laptop. If you only purchased the hardware then you have to go back ACER or their authorised dealers to buy it.
If your laptop has a genuine OEM OS, they should given you a recovery CD or the recovery CD is embedded on the hard drive and you can burn a copy from the hard drive to a CD/DVD.

Can't format disk. I do have laptop Gericom and restore system CD come along with it, but when set up new system from CD does not give me an option to format disk as usual with OS CD. After setting up...


Hi,
You will need to format the disk before trying to install the OS. Download and burn something like Hyrems or the Ultimate boot disk or GParted. and use the partition tools to re-partition the hard disk and format it.

Hope this helps,

Hello,

we have one type of method to solve this problem. but, not regularly.

if you have any other administrator account, you can log in to this and work with your account.

or

if you did not enter any administrator authentication(password), when the windows xp was installed, you can easily manage this.
press CTRL + ALT + DEL keys simultaneously (two times) and type the username as "administrator". then enter without giving a password.

or

you can connect your hard disk with any other hard disk. boot through the other hard disk. then you will see your disk drives on the another disk. Try to delete the "SAM" file on your os (C:\windows\system32\). (Only on your hard disk).
then reboot via your hard disk. now, you have no need to enter any username or password. just enter and go to the windows desktop


if it is not possible for you, just go for password recovery software

thank you,

I formatted my laptop which is using windows vista,how will i bring back the vista again?


once you format your sytems means, you deleted whole OS so you need to reinstall fresh OS on it.
you supposed to have a recovery disk (it comes alongwith laptop while buying it)
but it depends on what basic OS was there when you bought your Laptop if there was XP then you got XP OS recovery disk if there was vista then you have Vista recovery disk.
if you don't have recovery disk then you need to get new Vista disk from market to install back vista in your laptop.

thank you,

Problem with Acer Aspire 4920 notebook


all laptops are supplied with a pre installed copy of windows and the product key will be on a genuine windows sticker on the back, unless you have no sticker, in which case you will need to purchase a copy, as nobody is likely to be able to help if you have no product key and no Vista disc

Cannot install Windows XP,Vista on Compaq Laptop(FreeDos) V3607TU.


I have two solutions for this problem. the first one is to change the bios settings. the solution is here:  http://techrena.blogspot.com/2008/10/how-to-install-your-own-wndows-xp-in-hp.html
but for some laptops this setting is not available. so you can try another solution i.e. integrate the SATA drivers in your windows XP cd. this solution is here: http://techrena.blogspot.com/2009/01/integrate-your-own-drivers-or.html

ACER 4720Z


seems that it's a SATA drive and the drivers are not included in XP.
There are some tools available to include these drivers into the XP CD.
Search the net for 'xp-iso-builder' or 'n-Lite'.

This is not necessary if your laptop's got a floppy drive (i don't think so). Then the SATA drivers can easily be loaded by pressing F6 when booting from the XP CD.
