Acer aspire 5733z not working


Go to the BIOS configuration screen and tell the computer to boot from the DVD first, and hard drive second. Look for the "Repair Install" option n the install CD startup screen. If that doesn't work, you can at least start over with the installation.

I hope you backed up all of the work-related material before you started installation; If not, you may have to make a Linux trial/install memory stick and use it to copy your Documents folder to an external hard drive. Post a request for info on this to the comments if you need to do this (for example, if you wind up formatting the hard drive and doing a clean install of Windows 7).

Cant load roxio 2011 code error oood plaese tell me what to do its been 6hrs now cleaned everything please please


Please refer to the steps below and follow it carefully as it will help you resolving the problem.
  1. Disable your startup applications using MSCONFIG. This will disable any unnecessary background or system tray applications from loading.


    • Go to Start -> Run. Type "msconfig" (without quotes) then click OK.
    • Select the Startup tab.
    • Click the Disable All button.
    • Click the Apply button, then click the OK button.
    • Click the Restart button.

    To reverse this at the end of installation, go back into MSCONFIG and select Enable All and restart (that can be done once installation is complete).

  2. If you are installing from a physical disc, please try to copy the content of the disc to a folder on your hard drive then install from the hard drive. To do this:
    • Create a new folder on your Desktop.
    • Go to Start -> My Computer, then right-click on the Creator installer disc and select Explore.
    • Select ALL of the files in the installer window and copy to the folder you just created.
    • To install from the folder, double click the setup.exe file.

  3. If you are installing from downloaded files, please follow the steps below to delete the temporary files then try to reinstall again.
    • Go to Start -> Run. Type "%temp%" (without quotes) then click OK. The Temp folder will show up.
    • Go to Edit -> Select All.
    • Go to File -> Delete.
    • Reinstall software

Computer may or may not start up. When it does, it may or may ..


Go with a known good working hard drive, its the easiest thing to replace and instead of reimaging it, install windows from scratch and then load the drivers for whatever it doesnt find and then see how it runs, if the lockups stop happeneing then load the apps that you want and everything should be okay.

Your notebook has SATA hdd. Got into the bios (keep pressing F2 key on startup) then in the bios screen find HDD and press enter. Select IDE mode. Press f10 to save changes and exit. When this is done install XP.
Alternatively connect external usb floppy drive and unzip sata drivers into that. When booting from xp cd press f6 to load drivers.Follow onscreen instructions to load drivers and continue xp installation.
Please let me know if issue not solved for futher ts steps.

Dell Inspiron 1501 - tries to boot


Go into your BIOS by pressing F2 and make sure the cd drive is the first boot device. Install the operating system cd first and go thru that. Then you'll need to install the drivers and utilities disk. After that you can put the applications cd in and choose what programs you want to install off of that.

Thats the order you should install the cd's. Assuming your hard drive is good then everything should go thru. If you need more help then let me know and I'll help you as much as I can. I'll be here for a while.

When you boot up off of the operating system cd. It will say press any key to boot up off of the cd, be sure to do that so it boots up off of the cd and goes into the system setup.

Macbook just won't start


If you have the mac os install cd, try physically taking out the hard drive from your battery bay (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8c6ckjy-gdY) close up the bay and turn on your mac without the hard drive in place, while the chime is heard press and hold the alt/option key to get a list of bootable devices, ie. the install cd. Select the cd when the cd loads, go to the menu at the top and select startup disk, follow instructins to get your computer to atomatically start from the cd on next restart.

Select the restart option by cancelling th install.
AFTER THE COMPUTER SHUTS OFF IT WILL RESTART, DO NOT LET IT RESTART, TURN IT BACK OFF IMMEDIATELY.

Now take out the battery-bay again and put the hard drive back in. Put everything back together and turn the computer on again. This time it should automatically load the install cd if it is stil in the drive. When it loads the installation you should be able to find a way to either use disk repair to put a startup image back on the hard drive or completely reinstall the OS on the hard drive (which it will recognize now)..

If yu have any other questions let me know i can give you a more detailed explanation if necessary
