Insert the CD to the CD ROM. Set the bios setup to boot using the CD-Rom. Space bar while booting up. If you got the setup press F8, choose NTFS to format the drive. Then go on with the Installation.

Computer begins to start up and then turns off after windows xp is displayed. Reformatted drive installed windows 2000, same thing happens


Hi,

The issue that you experience might be problem of your power supply please change the location or check the power supply of computer. If you shut down your Windows XP-based computer, your computer may restart instead of shutting down. The computer may also restart unexpectedly while you are using the computer to perform certain tasks. An error message may appear on a blue screen when the computer restarts.

For more information, please click the link below;

Moreover, check the motherboard, CMOS battery or SMPS, as that might be one of the reason. Any of such device not functioning properly may cause computer restarts automatically.

After using the restore disk I am only getting vga from windows XP. I have tried installing the video driver from emachines site but it says that a file is corrupt or missing. This is a T5212. OS is XP...


that is so easy to solve! reformat your pc using XP WARRIOR XP2.... that OS is supported many drivers of motherboard and video drivers. after installing XP warrior, you don't need to install the driver of your M-board and any onboard card on your pc... try to contact me if you wanna try XP warrior.

My emachines will not install windows xp, so i tried to install another windows perfessional and it said the disk has exceeded its limet.


Hi,
Pop the disk in the drive and set off your install.
When the setup gets to the part where it asks you where you would like to install XP you will need to delete the C drive partition, format the partition and install XP.
XP from a clean install only takes 3GB of hard drive space, so unless you are trying to install XP on a drive which is only 2GB then you have no chance until you get a bigger capacity hard drive.

The information will be there at the beginning of setup telling you how many partitions you have (if any) and how big the drive is.

Remember that you need to delete the partitions that holds the older operating system as all the information is still on the drive, deleting the partition will permanently delete the information.

Regards.

Deleted sound card


There is no way you can delete a sound card. But I guess you are referring to the sound card driver shown in Device Manager. It's not a problem, just open Device Manager from Control Panel -> System -> Device and then click on a the icon Check for Device Changes to ask WinXP to locate the driver automatically. If it does not, just insert the Sound Card driver CD into the CD drive and start the installation manually.

If you have reformatted the hard drive there's no windows there at the c partition anymore for you to boot into. If so, read about format and reinstall on google.

Try going to the control panel>performance and maintenance>disk cleanup. After running cleanup run the defrag.

Emachines 2792


pull the power plug as soon as the emacines logo comes on
and if that doesn't work pull out the power as soon as the first windows logo screen comes on. it should then come on and give you the option to start in safe mode or regular mode, choose safe mode then after it comes on in safe mode restart the cpu
then it should come on in regular mode i don't know why it works for my emachines cpu but it does . i'm looking at downloading a error fixing program because i'm doing this almost when ever i turn off my cpu hope this helps if not reformat your hard drive andput windows on again it worked last time i had this problem.
