XPS-410 needs to have MCE 2005 Rollup two SP3 replaced by Windows 7 64 bit. Too many problems to list currently but will work limited programs


Not sure what you are trying to do. If you are trying to convert 32 bit to 64 bit Apps, try going to manufacturers website to look for drivers.
Win 7 will actually find the best drivers for your devices.

No sound device, just multimedia device after adding a new hard drive and Windows XP reinstall.


Are you booting in from one of 2 hard drives at start-up .. ie. do you have a dual-boot system?

If your sound works fine when using the original hard drive but not when you boot from the slave, then it sounds like a driver problem -in the slave. You'll need to download the sound drivers for XP/Slave.

I can't think of any reason why your computer should beep after you have opened and closed the case. I don't think it is anything to do with the case. It's more likely that there's a bad connection or fault (maybe you have the slave and master on the wrong cable) - or badly fitted RAM.

Count the error beeps - there is a pattern of long and short beeps. You can find a list of their meanings here:

Though having said that, I would hazard a guess that you've got the master/slave configuration wrong. If you have both hard drives on one cable (ide) the MASTER drive should be at the end of the cable.

Remember there's a primary master (c) and a secondary master - your dvd drive. A 2nd hard drive would be set up to be the primary SLAVE. You cannot have 2 'master' drives on the same cable or bus. That would cause an error beep ...

I want to clear my hard drive, because I'm giving my computer to someone


You don't really want to clear your hard drive unless the person you are giving it to has an operating system to reload, otherwise the computer is useless to them. What you really want to do is get rid of all of your documents, music, pictures and videos. Here's what you should do. 1) Click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts and select the option to create a new account. Give the new account the name of the person you are giving the laptop to with administrative rights (not a limited account) or give in a generic name such as Owner or User. 2) Once you've created the new account do a restart of your computer and when it comes up log in to the New Account that you created. 3) Now click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts once again, but this time select your old account, then look for the option to Delete User Account. 4) Delete your old user account and delete all associated files when asked. It will take a few minutes but when finished all of your documents, music, pictures and videos will be long gone and your user account will be gone also. Now when you give the computer to the new owner it will be operational and he can start using it.

Error message NTLDR missing on formatted hard drive


You need to either reinstall windows, or take the hard drive out, hook it up as a spare drive to a working computer and copy NTDLR to the root of the laptop hard drive. It would be much easier to reinstall windows. You can always use the recovery portion of Windows, but if I were you I would just do a format and reinstall. NTDLR is just a startup file for Windows XP, that does not mean your hard drive is gone or anything. Please don't forget to rate!..Thanks

I have a Maxtor 6Y120Lo internal hard drive which is my "C" drive it is nearly full Can I add another hard drive and double my "C" drive


You can add another hard drive, but it won't double your C drive; it will just show up as another hard drive.

However, using a program like Acronis, you can hook up the 2nd hard drive, make an exact image of your c drive on the new drive, then connect the new drive in the old drive's place and there you have added more space on your c drive as it will automatically become the c drive.
