If you are asking what I think you're asking, you cannot do it.
XP is not in "my documents" It is the operating system. You can clone the hard drive or make a disk image, but you can't make an XP disk from your computer.
If your computer has a utility to make recovery disks, you will find that in the Programs list. Many manufacturers require you to make recovery disks, as they don't supply them. In this case, go to the programs list and look for the recovery disk creator.

This sounds like the computer is locking up on the Advanced OS options screen, which could be hardware or the OS, or a virus.

Usually it is a file system problem - which means that the hard drive's file system has gone awry. You will need a Windows boot disk to see if you can use Check Disk on your hard drive. It is also possible your hard drive is trashed - hopefully you have backed up your important data such as pictures, music, documents, downloads, favorites, and the like.

Here is a very good boot CD image that you can use - just download it, burn it with Windows (Win 7 and above can burn ISO images to disk) or use Nero or a program like that to burn the image to CD - you can't just copy it to the CD - it needs to be burned as an image. http://www.hirensbootcd.org/download/

Here are some comments that will help you too: http://ask.metafilter.com/222181/How-can-I-fix-my-XP-computer-from-UBCD

Hope that helps!

You should not have contact the manufacturer (microsoft)

SP3 is the third and final service pack released for Microsoft Windows XP, and it eliminates many of the security holes that previously affected XP. While Microsoft recommends that users download SP3 using Windows Update, some users are unable to do so. However, it's easy to create a Windows XP SP3 installation CD; it requires only that you download the pack from the website and burn it to a CD-R/DVD-R using an ISO burner program.
Download the SP3 installation ISO by visiting the first link listed in the "Resources" section of this article. Save it to your Desktop. Download ImgBurn and save it to your Desktop. Double-click the installation executable for ImgBurn and click "Next." Follow the remaining onscreen prompts and click "Finish" to complete installation of ImgBurn. Insert a blank CD-R/DVD-R into your DVD drive. Open ImgBurn by going to "Start," "Programs" and "ImgBurn." Click "File," then "Browse for a source file." Navigate to your Desktop and select the SP3 ISO file. Click "Open." Click the blue "ISO to CD" button located on the bottom left of ImgBurn. The program will begin creating the Windows XP SP3 installation CD. This process may take anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes to complete depending on the speed at which the CD-R/DVD-R is being burned. Click "OK" once the CD-R/DVD-R has finished burning. You've successfully created a Windows XP SP3 installation CD.

I have reinstalled windows, i need the ethernet and sound drivers for this pc. would it be possible to send a link to download them to a disk?


Download the drivers to the computer you are using. Then burn them to a CD disk.

When you go to download the drivers, Note where they are going First. Write the name of the driver file down. Then look to see where it is going to be downloaded to.

See if it is going to your My Documents folder, (Documents in Vista)
(Start > My Documents for WinXP)
It may go to a sub-folder within the My Documents folder. Downloads.
Double-click on Downloads to see.

It may go directly to your desktop screen.
Have a fresh CD disk in the optical drive. (CD/DVD drive)
Right-click on the file name when you see it.
Left-click on Copy.

Then click on Copy to CD, or the name of your optical drive.

Windows running on the Systemax computer, put the CD with the drivers in it's optical drive.
Go to My Computer.
(Start > My Computer)
Left-click on My Computer.
Now double-click on the optical drive name (Letter. Example; (D:) drive)
Then double-click on the name of the Ethernet driver file.

The Installation Wizard should come up, and lead you through installing.
(Essentially click on Next, Next, and Finish)

Restart your Systemax computer.
Go through the process again to install the Audio (Sound) file.

http://support.acer.com/acerpanam/desktop/2009/acer/aspire/AspireX1300/AspireX1300ul.shtml

The Acer Aspire X1300 User's Guide is the first file listed.

This file is a PDF file. The computer you are using has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files.

After you left-click on - Acer Aspire X1300 User's Guide, you may not see anything happening for a few seconds.

Should you wish to save this PDF file to your computer, left-click on the Floppy Disk icon in the top header of the file.

(This way you can burn a copy off to a CD disk for safekeeping, and can also delete the file off of your computer, so that you will have more harddrive space)

If you hover your mouse icon over the Floppy Disk icon, it will briefly reveal,
'Click to save this to your computer or another location'

After you have clicked on the Floppy Disk icon, a small window will come up.
Save a copy...

Go down to the bottom right of the Save a copy window, and left-click on - Save.

If you have your downloads set to save to your My Documents folder (Documents for Vista) this file will go there.

If you do Not have your documents set to save to your My Documents folder, this file will go to your desktop screen.

When you see the file name, Double-click on it to open it.

(Note* There is also a separate folder in My Documents. Downloads. The file may may be downloaded to the Downloads folder.

If you have trouble downloading this file, come back, and let me know, or if you have any additional questions about this.

It could be possible if the hard drive isnt too far gone, are you able to use it at all? have you tried to hook it up to a different laptop and see if you can access it from that? You'll probably be better off getting a list of anything that you can re-download and storing the irreplaceable stuff such as sensitive documents onto a disk. If you can do this then just reformat the hard disk and get it over with. You stand to be in for quite a headache trying to copy all your files off your hard disk and making sure all the files arent corrupted. This stands especially true if your hard disk has malware or a virus.

How can i get in to my windows xp i lost/forgot my password. cd-rom is not working


Install a working CD-ROM drive.
Put your Windows XP disk into the CD-ROM drive.
Boot the computer from the CD-drive.
If you are very careful, and read the installation questions carefully,
and respond accurately, you can install another copy of Windows
onto the 'C:' drive, AND CHOOSE A FOLDER NAME THAT IS *NOT* 'C:\WINDOWS'.
Eventually, you can copy all your files from your "old" MY DOCUMENTS folder to your "new" MY DOCUMENTS folder.

Help - no-one can fix my PC - no desktop, icons, task bar


Hi hiltona, the error" viamraid.sys" not found is located (Or was located) in, C:\Windows\System32\drivers. (It is the VIA RAID driver for win XP, 2000 & 2003). The VIA file is most likely just one of many files in windows that are corrupt, not to mention many of windows regestry files. It would be impossible to fix all these windows files & registry keys.
Can I suggest that you remove your hard disk drives & connect them into a friends PC if at all possible. One at a time. (First your C:\ drive than your D:\ drive).
If your drives are SATA's they will default as slave drives. If your drives are IDE you'll need to set drive's jumper to be seen as a slave drive. What you have to gain by doing this.
1. Hopefully the PC your placing your drive into will have a virus scanner running & up to date, which will clean the Trojans/viruses from your C:\ drive.
2. You'll be able to copy you're personal data to a CD or DVD if the PC has a CD/DVD writer in it. (See the list of folders you want to write to a CD writer below).
3. Your D:\ drive will be cleaned & you will not loose any data other than files that may have been infected.
4. Taking it to a repair shop will cost you $$ & most places do not back up your data. (Unless you pay for it)!
Pull the memory from your own system when you remove the hard disk drives. Removing the memory will clear any memory resident virus. Once your primary drive has been cleaned re-install it into your PC & incert your memory.
Install windows. (Fresh install is recommended & format because many windows system32 files will be trashed). Once windows is installed, register with MS & than update your system through windows update service. Download & install AGV for free from this link: http://free.avg.com/ww.download?prd=afe
Run a full system scan. (Play it safe). Next is the list of folders you'll want to burn to a CD writer after your C:\ drive has been cleaned.
C:\Documents and Settings\ User name\Application Data\Microsoft\Address Book
C:\Documents and Settings\ User name\Desktop
C:\Documents and Settings\ User name\Favorites
C:\Documents and Settings\ User name\Local Settings\Identities
C:\Documents and Settings\ User name\My Documents
Data from any program you have installed.

Once windows has beed installed you can copy these back to your C:\ drive & over write the folder.

Good luck hiltona!
If you run into trouble just let me know.

Need systems restore disk for Gateway


Hi,

I'm not sure if you hope to rescue your files and documents but a system restore disk won't do this, it will wipe you hard disk and return it to factory default. therefore you could just start again with any copy of windows XP. You'll need driver disks but you can download them from the gateway website. you can get an XP disk cheaply on ebay.

Click the [View] tab and click the radio button next to [Show Hidden Files and Folders]. Remove the check mark next to [Hide Protected Operating System Files (Recommended)] then click [Apply] and [OK]. The files should now be visible in Windows Explorer. If the files still cannot be copied, right click each file, click [Properties] and remove the checkmark from the Read-Only attributes.
