    I started the laptop and the lights com on but the screen is blank. I have attached an external monitor and it was blank as well. The monitor was previously attached to the desktop and working. the charge led and hd led are on in the front left as well as the led on the pwr button. The LCD seems to be backlit but nothing else.

Hi friends

I think your laptop infected by virus ,you should better to delete partition and create partition and format all the drive and install OS again.

You also can save the private data do some steep.
after installation STELER PHONIX just copy and paste,after d-click on the icon you can easily recover the data.

Hope it will solve

Will not run xp pro i'm stuck in 2000 mode mother board is ak77 pro 133 vt8233 will not run xp pro i've been told im pretty much sol. Is this true?


If you have a valid Win XP Pro CD and want to install the operating system you'll need to format your hard disk drive. If you have allot of data on you're hard disk drive, (In Win 2000) Suggest you create a second partition within the free space of you're hdd and install windows XP Pro. Boot you're system with the XP CD. Pay close attention to the display screens. Follow the instructions for creating a second partition.
Format the new partition. (Quick). Install windows XP on the new partition. Once completed you can copy your personal data to win XP.
If you choose to keep the win 2000 partition and you do not wish to have a dual boot system than remove/delete the root files from the 2000 partition. These files; Autoexec.bat and Boot.ini. You're new XP Boot.ini should read like this;
[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect /usepmtimer
Once you're satisfied an no longer need win 2000 use windows diskmgmt.msc from the run command to delete the win 2000 partition.
Win 2000 uses a FAT16 where Win XP uses the FAT NTFS.

Cheers!

I reformat my gateway netbook from xp to windows 7 starter... but when I restart it shows an option of windows xp and windows 7. I need to choose windows 7 before the windows start....pls help i dont know...


that happens because you didn't delete your original install of xp. basically you are dual booting operating systems. the best way to recitify this is to reinstall wndows seven and do whats called a destructive install. You should be prompted as to whether or not you want to do an upgrade or a custom install. choose custom and install. this should completely remove xp from the system. if you need any existing data from xp be sure to save it prior.

Operating system not found


You can't insert a Hard drive from another PC because when it was installed on the old PC it was setup to work with the hardware for that particular computer.

You will need to reinstall a fresh copy of windows on it to make it work with the new PC it's in.Boot from CD run windows setup, format the drive then do a fresh install.

This should fix the problem, if you have any new info or need further help with any of that post back. Thank you for choosing Fixya!

No operating system - instal xp pro


With what you have done, it seems pretty cut and dry. You hard drive appears to be damaged, which is why your having problems formating/accessing it.
I would recommend running a hard drive test. If you not sure how, I would ask a local repair shop to run a quick test on the hard drive to confirm its bad. Most shop will do this test for free, if you get a hard drive through them. If you wanna go online and get your own hard drive, testing should be less than 30 bucks.

If this helps please rate my solution.
