Question about Operating Systems

5 Answers

Does $9.99 cover the complete solution? Or each clarified misunderstanding will be an extra $9.99? What warranty do I have that my problem will be resolved? Thank you very much. Alvaro Alvaro@Alvaro-Mejia.com

    I do not seem to understand how your solutions site works.
    I wanted to ask a technical question, but I asked an administrative question, I got an answer and now I do not know how to proceed.
    Please advice.

    My actual problem is as follows:

    Last week I got a Sony laptop model VGN-FZ280E.\r\nSince Vista has such a lousy reputation, I tried to replace Vista with XP. When trying to install XP it tells me that the computer has no hard drive.
    Upon investigation this wrong message really means that the available hard drive driver (Vista) will not allow access to any other operating system.
    A friend supplied me with a special installable version of XP and it was successful. Problem is that the installation was in Spanish.
    Can somebody tell me how or where I can get installable windows XP in English and how to install it on my computer?

    Thank you very much.

    I got five e-mails to notify me about the same answer. I feel that one e-mail would have been enough.

    Thanks,

You might want to format the hard drive to install the XP that you have.

    The "easy" solution for your problem is to get a copy of an English XP cd and have your friend make it special for you.

    The problem with the XP cd's is that they're missing sata drivers. They need to be slipstreamed into the cd to make it work correctly.

    Well it isn't exactly hard to do, it can be a little over whelming for someone who doesn't live and breath computers.

    Since your friend has some experience it seems, makes sense to me to ask him for a little more help.

    Let us know what you decide on doing and we'll try out best to help you through it.

    Formating your drive and or downloading XP service pack 2 will do nothing to solve your problems.

    PLEASE don't listen to anyone besides EKSE and ME or you could end up with even more problems.

Hi

9.99 for as many solutions as you need.

  • Ekse Mar 13, 2009

    The premium service cost is 9.99, which includes answers from anyone in the community, whom ever wants to answer, also the best experts of the website, and you can get as many answers as you need. But in most cases Its better to keep talking to one expert instead of calling in more experts with the repost or reject button. You can use the add a comment link to send more comments.

    Hi


    The problem there is that the laptop uses a SATA hard drive and xp doesn't come with the drivers it needs to find the hard drive. Vista on the other hand has those drivers. your friend had a custom made windows xp cd that had sata drivers build in. you will need a windows xp installation cd with the language you want to use. then you will need to use n lite to create a custom cd that has the drivers that windows needs to start the sata drive during the windows setup.


    Generally this would be done with a floppy disc but Im sure your laptop doesn't have that.


    nlite is available here http://www.nliteos.com/ some guides are available at the site.

How do I copy my complete music files from my computer windows 7 to Verbatim external hard drive with Nero software?


Hi!

Unless I'm misunderstanding, you shouldn't need to use Nero at all to copy your files.
If you use Windows Explorer and locate the directory with your music files, you should be able to just do a copy and paste to a directory on your external harddrive.

I have only 20gb space for C drive and 256 for other drive but my laptop is under warranty i have visited to service centre of Acer but they inform i have to pay to increase space for C drive and my...


if C drive represents your whole hard drive, the way to increase the actual storage space is to get a bigger hard dribe, or get an external option that you can connect via USB to store your data. If you only want to increase free space, you need to delete/remove old data and programs. Music files, pictures and videos and old programs uses up a large amount of disk space. However, since you might need to add or save new ones again, getting a bigger or extra drive is still best which means, you'll need to purchase one and this is not covered by your warranty. The warranty will cover repairs and replacement of same specifications, but not upgrades. As for the keyboard, if you are using a desktop computer, test your keyboard on another USB port or on another computer, If it has same issue, you'll need to get a new one. If this is a laptop, try an external USB keyboard and if it works, remove the battery and charger and with the laptop turned off, press the power button for about 10 seconds and check if that helps. If not, the keyboard may need to be replaced which should be covered by warranty.

Vista won't reload after power failure


This is ALSO a common problem for people who don't shut down their computers properly - they get away with it 99 out of a 100 times - and then this problem.

Diagnosis: It sounds like the Boot Sector is damaged (if the Computer Hums and Lights up but nothing else happens) and the cure for this is a BootFix (using DOS) or a reinstall (but selecting Repair instead of Install).

This will be done under Warranty so don't mess with it.

Take it back to the store you bought it from, it will still be under warranty. If you do anything to your computer you will void the warranty and thereby be responsible for the cost of any repairs which might have otherwise been covered by the Warranty.
