Re: Coping files is very slow

Maybe you haven't installed your USB drivers.
Right click on my Computer > Manage
Go to Device Manager
Do you see any Triangular yellow colored warning signs in there?
If there are and they are in the USB section, that is the reason for the slow transfers.

My laptop won't start and says "NLTDR is missing" press control alt delete to restart... why is that?

Windows is corrupt...
Sol = Reload Windows XP

you will need an original WinXP disk....insert the disk in the CD drive and restart...let it boot from the CD (to make changes to boot sequence make changes in BIOS)
once it boots from CD then repair you OS or install a fresh copy of the OS

My computer without C driver please direct me how to down load the driver..Thank

You should not download, ist done only by formating its not a simple work .If you have a xp cd,put it into your drive then restart.if your your booting device is cd drive then you can see that"press any key to boot from cd"(press any key).then a window is come.after some time you can see you older version of xp (if you want to repair your system press R or press esc to go to next step) .After few seconds you get a license agreement press F8 key
NEXT STEP is Partition process .Select suitable size for your driver and select C folder and press F. another window comes. in that select"format your system with NTFS file system.
then formating takes place -> coping new file -> reboots
Then not press any key.give freedom to load freely Then another installation window comes
in that a box come to enter product key. after some time another box comes .In that box dont select any option click 'next next next' Then installation will do own After windows installation, install mother board cd now you can install wanted soft wares
GO TO my computer and format the local disks except C now pc ready to use

I having a promblem trying to load o/s,it start well to load but after just a moment before it coping files it gives me an error 1773

Error 1773 error symptoms can include slow PC performance, program crashes, system freezes, startup/shutdown problems, and file errors. Risks that can result from not repairing your computer include blue screens, file corruption, and hardware failure.

Fixing Error 1773 is easy. Download and install PC Health Advisor, a Microsoft Windows tool that will analyze your registry for missing, obsolete, and corrupt entries resulting from failed installations, incomplete un-installations, disabled drivers, and spyware applications.

I would go into the BIOS and make sure your SATA controller is using the AHCI or IDE setting and not RAID, if it is using RAID then it may need to load a special driver to install windows.

This is the most likely cause of your problem, can you also check and make sure the bios is seeing the HDD at all?

Problem installing Windows XP with Asus P5RD1-VM series mothboard

You need to copy the SATA drivers from the motherboard CD into a floppy diskette.
When you are booting with the windows xp installation CD you can see a message that says:

Press F6 for raid drivers

Press that key so windows installation CD look for the SATA drivers.
