This particular error sticks it ugly face out when windows detects that a hard drive with the OS has lost its connection to the system.

That in plain english means that windows cannot initialize your hard drive, I assure you it has to do with windows xp and your system configuration. The simplest way to solve this would be to enter your bios setup and set your Sata mode to emulate an ATA drive.

What windows is doing is trying to look for drivers for your HDD it can't find them and therefore doesn't know how to get it workin so it stops. Go into your dell bios and in there you will see an option like this.

Sata/ATA - select this option for ATA emulation and therefore not drivers
Sata/AHCI - select this option for auto detect, normally the default, generally needs drivers, if there are disks configured for one of the raid modes, the system detects this.
Sata/RAID - select this option if you always have raid drives.

You want to select the very first one. If you for some reason can't do this or it doesn't work but it will. Then you will need a dell xp cd or have to create your own xp cd reinstall xp and include your third party raid drivers from dell's website.

Please rate my solution

Cant get my dell inspiron 1100 to recognize my modem after reinstalling installing xp system


Oh my goodness, who uses a modem? Please don't tell me you get on the internet using a phone line and modem.

Ohh Internet Modem as his first sentence says. I'm thinking that means he has a high speed modem from a internet service provider. Ok, I would suggest that you remove the power cord, remove the battery, turn the laptop over and find the cover that houses the wireless modem and remove the antennas (black and white cables) from the wireless card, then remove the wireless card from the slot. Now press and hold the power button for 30 seconds, then put everything back together and reboot.

My computer starts to load and when it gets to the blue windows xp screen it stops and does not load into windows.


Turn off your computer by holding down the power button (10 sec.)
Turn the computer back on and Hold down the F8 button at the top of your keyboard, until the start up menu shows, Then select "Last known Configuration that worked"
If that does work you can repeat the steps and try system restore if you have it enabled.
If still unable to load you would need service, or to reinstall windows

Installed a rangeplus adapter on dell 1000 inspiron xp sp3 home


See if you can go into safe mode by hitting the F8 key right after the dell splash screen and right before the XP splash screen comes up. If you can get into safe mode try to uninstall the rangeplus adapter and try reinstalling again after rebooting the system normally.

Dell Dimension 4700 - Driver Reset


1st you need to download or install all the drivers for your Dell computer. Try to use the drivers/utilities disks first. Once you can get online, go to Dell.com and look up your model 4700 and download all the missing drivers. Your Linksys Router is not a modem. The Linksys has the modem connected to it for wireless connections.

When I turn on my dell optiplex GX1 A message come up , reinstall ''windows 2000 root7/system32/ntoskrnl.exe.'' I can get to the F-8 start up section where the safe mode , reboot , and others are , but...


That will work, but you may also consider using that windows xp disk to upgrade, it'll fix the problem plus give you an upgrade. Kinda kills two birds with one stone.

Try looking for the driver at driverguide.com. Search either by laptop model or the make and model of the modem.
