Error loading operating system

Hi,
I was performing a fresh install of Windows XP on my HP Pavilion Desktop PC. Halfway thru during the installation process, the power went off, and the computer switched off. When I switched on PC after the power came back, I was shocked to see that after pressing a key, after the ''press any key to boot from cd'' message, nothing happens. The screen is just blank. I formatted c: and installation was half way thru when power went off. I went into setup to see if my hard disk still shows up, and luckily, i can still see it. So i believe the hard disk is safe. I dont understand what wud have caused this problem. I have installed XP many times and have nevr been caught up in such a situation. Please help. Will be greatly appreciated

Thanks in advance

I would try resetting the bios. Take out the battery, and short out the Clear CMOS jumpers, and leave them like that for a few minutes.

Restart the computer, go back into bios, and reset the computer to boot on CD first.

See if that works.

    Oh yeah, make sure you put the CMOS jumper back to the original position after you clear it.

To change the operating systems say from Windows XP to Windows Vista or Windows 7 you need to purchase Windows upgrade disk or a full version of the Windows installation disk.
You boot up with this Windows installation CD to install the new operating system and follow the screen instructions.

Lsass.exe system error An invlid parameter was


Hi,

It seems your system file got crashed which you need to recover using Recover Disc.

Take any Windows XP installtion disc and boot the system from CD.

After all the scanning of Hardware it ask you want to install fresh copy of windows or you just want to repair it.

Choose Automatic repair, it will run thru the wizard as similar to windows intallation. Only difference it will just repair the crrupted system files without user files loosing.

So thats all you need to make it work fine.

Hp pavilion a1220n shuts dwn after loading hp8500 pr drv xpsp3 os


If you can boot into safe mode, then once in safe mode open system restore and then restore to a couple days prior to the install of the hp drivers. This should fix the problem. If you need to know how to get into system restore let me know your operating system (Vista or XP)

Savedump.exe error


Hi there
Savedump.exe is located in the folder C:\Windows\System32. The file is a Windows core system file. The program has no visible window. savedump.exe is a Microsoft signed file. Therefore the technical security rating is 4% dangerous.
Some malware camouflage themselves as savedump.exe, particularly if they are located in c:\windows or c:\windows\system32 folder. Thus check the savedump.exe process on your pc whether it is pest. I recommend Security Task Manager for verifying your computer's security.

If you want to get the full potential of 64bit processor then you will have install XP X64 and yes i'm sure SP3 will install.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!

Installation of Windows XP Pro on Hp Pavilion laptop


what is the error message that you're getting.. usually windows vista will not downgrade your operating system to windows xp. You may need to remove vista before you can load xp.
make sure to save a back up of all of your important files before you do that.
