SOURCE: tried to install a used 20gb working hard drive

Hi I'm Rain.
The problem is that you have to diffrent system models. When Windows is booting up for the first time it loads the neccesary Drivers for the system model. You will have to obtain the Windows disk and do a system repair or a full Clean install .
This will load all the drivers for your system model.
You can try rebooting and hitting F8 to get to advanced settings.in Advanced settings select Last known good configuration.
If this fail . The configuration is wrong and Windows won't boot.

How do i fix error ofoo:0244 and ofoo:1a44 (msg block 16867582, 46028639 & 111595250), please? I get these codes when I start my pc


Hi,
I would suggest you first try the Start Up Repair for Windows XP.
1. Just insert the Windows XP installation CD that came with your computer then restart the computer.
2. You should get a prompt to start the computer from the CD drive, if not you need to enter BIOS settings to set the start/boot up mode so that your computer will boot up first from the CD.
3. When you see the blue screen, let the computer load everything and when it's done choose "To set up Windows XP now, press ENTER"4. Press F8 to agree to the License Agreement 5. Choose "To repair the selected Windows XP installation, press R"
Windows will then start the repair process. Do not worry all your data and settings will be retained.

If above solution does not work then,Use Recovery Console.

On the Recovery Console, choose the installation you would like to log on to (for example c:\Windows)5. Type Chkdsk /p /r on the Recovery Console and your computer will begin to check the hard drive for error and recover data.6. Once Chkdsk is completed, type exit then press Enter. Computer should restart. No need to boot from CD at this point. You can take out the Windows installation CD.

Hope this helps. Glad to be of service.

The System Recovery Options menu opens. 6 Click Restore Application. The Welcome to Gateway System Recovery window opens. 7 Click Next. 8 To perform a recovery with data backup (recommended), click Recovery with automatic data backup, then click Next.

Unable to install avg8 free in windows 2000 prof sp-4


Hi,
Instead of installing AVG free, download & install Avira Antivir Personal Free. It is better compared to AVG in terms of virus detection 7 also very light on the system.

Unable to get pas message at bootup


I am sorry to say but seems like your system perhaps the Windows system files got corrupted. Boot your computer up to the Windows CD and run a repair. If this does not do it, you will have to reinstall Windows again.
