Those error codes don't really mean very much to the general consumer, but blue screens of deaths are caused by bad RAM memory in your computer, not viruses. I'm going to take a guess that your computer is either several years old and/or it constantly get quite warm? Heat can shorten the life of computer components by quite a bit. You may need to get one of your RAM cards replaced to solve this issue.
There's a free program called Memtest86 that you can run to determine if this is the case. It will scan all your memory and look for bad sectors. You can download it here: http://www.memtest86.com/ and burn it to a CD. What it does is create a bootable CD that will execute the program as the computer turns on to scan all the memory. There are full instructions on their website. The process can take an hour or two depending on how much memory your computer has, and if it turns up any bad sectors then you know what your problem is.
A computer can run with bad sectors in the memory, but it makes it unstable that it will keep bluescreening, so if you have bad sectors in your memory it might be better just to replace the RAM. Luckily, this isn't too expensive. For instance, if your computer has 4GB of memory, it probably has 2 2GB RAM cards installed. You can get a 2GB replacement notebook memory for, I'd say $30 or $40. Installing RAM is very simple, and if you're willing to install it yourself, it won't cost you more than that.
Well, win xp is absolutly more fun as OS then win 2000:)
To upgrade to win xp will be no problem since Toshiba have drivers for ir. To upgrade to VISTA will...or can give you problem since there arent any drivers for that Tecra S1.
What you need is bootable DVD/CD for installing or repairing Windows 7 to get missing 'bootmgr' or repair corrupted bootmgr...If there are files corrupt on your CD, you can get new one from shop you have purchased..Maybe just need to clean up your DVD/CD, so your DVD drives can read properly the files installation..
Do you mean you are running a dual boot system? Meaning that you can boot to Win7 or Win XP? If you boot in XP then you will have to manually have to install sound card driver. Really need more details to be able to help you better.
Its true. the Bios or HDD driver wont allow you to install Win XP on it.. This BIOS is compatible with only Win Vista. The only easy way to do it is by creating 2 partitions while installing vista. once vista is installed- install XP with Dual boot and than format the vista partition.
HELLO I AM RAVICHANDRAN FROM iRELAND, I BOUGHT THE EEE PC 900 SERIES WINXP, I GB RAM CELERON 900 PROCESSOR. NOW WIDOWS XP IS CORRPTED, WHAT CAN I DO . I HAVE A USB DVD DRIVE. HOW IS BOOT THE BOOTABLE CD. PLEASE DETAILY EXPLAIN ME STEP BY STEP
you need to go at www.Toshiba.com and get a special driver. You need to check under support and drivers for your model.
What you do is you get the driver (depends if you a floppy otherwise burn the drive on a cd)
From Bios make the computer boot the computer from CD/DVD rom and then you need to pay attention when on the bottom of the screen it will say hit f6 if you have to install the special driver and then you can continue installation of windows.
I know this problem,
The HDD is a SATA disk, win XP setup cannot identify a SATA controller on it's own
you need to load the driver (from a disk) so you may need to download it first.
I think this is the correct link
extract the files and burn to a CD or Floppy then run win XP setup by booting from CD
you should see in the begining of win XP setup from CD it prompt you to press (I think) F2 to add RAID or SCSI Controllers, (this prompt is at the bottom of the screen)
Then follow the propmts to load from the disk you made earlier. you should be able to select the controller from a list. (short list)
you should then be able to continue and hopefully Win XP setup should now be able to see your HDD and give you choices about which partition (as per normal)
you want to remove all partitions before installing winXP (you can then make whatever partitions you wish)
Hope this helps
