Post XP SP2 install problems on eMachine laptop

Hi, am attempting to reinstall the original OS (using the factory discs) and once I get SP2 installed the machine will not reboot and reports an error with ''atisgkaf'' files. In doing some checking I noticed that some folks installed an updated version of the ATI display driver which allowed them to boot normally after that. Went to the eMachines site, downloaded & installed the newest driver available but still no go.
Any suggestions would be welcomed & thanks!
John

Free recovery disks for hp pavillion zd8000 with windows 7


As far as I know, the original zd8000 operating system is Windows XP. If you have Windows 7 installed, then you need to get Windows 7 disc and its product key. If you need the Windows XP reinstallation media, then you can use HP Windows XP reinstallation disc only (for example: HP Windows XP Professional with SP2 disc).

I am installing os windows xp sp2 19 minutes left power shut off 3 times , when power on windows start up to mouse arrow pop up, what shall I to continue installation acer laptop?


The computer will continue to reinstall windows. It will say restarting installation, simply continue. If it stops again make sure you are using a good copy of OS CD and not a pirated one. Do a full format before attempting to install one.

Having Trouble Reinstalling XP on my Dell Dimension 3000


Here's what I would do. Download and burn any Linux disk. Install Linux and delete all partitions while doing so. After that, initiate the Windows XP installation and see if that works.

This will take care of two things:

If you can install Linux, then the hard drive is good and the partition that was previously on there will be deleted (I suspect the partition is locked which can be caused by a virus or the software used to scrub hard drive).

Check your CDs for Windows (for scratches) or it could be your actual CD drive is out (laser) which would make the installation fail. If the CDrom cannot read the disk, it locks up like that during installation...even if it read before.

the copied recovery disc may not be booting for various reasons...
1.not set to boot fromcd drive in bios settings.
2. cd copy was not cd to cd copy or it was not made bootable. maybe you just copied the data of the friends recovery disc.

I need to restart my laptop to factory settings


if you want it to be factory settings, you would need the exact same Operatin Sytem installation disk which they probably didnt give you. The reason i say the same is because your serial numbers wont match as your original OS. Anyways if you only doing it to sell the laptop or two have a fresh Operating system, i would recomend you !1) Get a copy os Windows XP
2) Backup all your important files
3) Format your laptop and reinstall XP
4) Restore your files
5) Download (If you dont have it already) your drivers for your laptop. This can be found on Toshibas website.
6) Install all drivers and thats it. You have a Factory Set Laptop

I purchased an emachines T5244 desktop in January 2007 and I have been having some major issues that require an operating system disc for this computer to restore istallation of windows, will you please...


If Windows is purchased separetly;
Call Microsoft and get order a Disk for approx. $10
If shipped with the computer; Call eMachines and check if they can send you a back up disk.
If you have your product key, you can also lend a CD from your friends or family and use your product key while installing.

I replaced a bad 120 gb hard drive with a WD 500gb sata hard drive. Installation went fine, however I am having trouble with the reinstall of the XP system. It freezes up at the point where it asks if you...


First, I would remove the 120 from the system during installation. If possible, use a Windows XP disc w/ SP2 to speed up installation of the OS. Plus SP2 handles a maximum disk size error which limits you maximum partition size. (Under SP1 I think the largest partition can be 137 MB)
I would recommend using NTFS format for the hard drive.
Once it is installed, you can always re-connect it to simplify the installation.
If it's still freezing, check the disc for damage or defects.

Emachine sp2 prob


BIOS is unlikely to fail from a software fix such as SP2 but you may have too little ram or too slow of a processor to handle changes.
You may have to do a complete reinstallation of XP to set things right and then try the SP2 upgrade again.
Windows is unfortunately sometimes infuriatingly cranky and may require repeated installation before settling down.

Also, eMachines may have tweaked their version of XP in a way not compatible with SP2.
Check their website or MS Knowledge Base for clues.

Boot cd-rom type:cd-rom/non-emulation booting


No, it's because Microsoft changed the way boot CDs work with SP2. You need an old CD (Windows XP SP1). I had the same problem here, notebook without floppy, it won't boot from the newer XP version CDs (SP2 or SP3) - but an old SP1 CD works!
(Those were all original Microsoft CDs, and the SP2 / SP3 CDs boot just fine on several other PCs I tested. It's just that some old hardware has a problem with the boot mode used on newer Windows CDs.)
