Down laod xp recovery disk

If you're running Windows XP and Windows crashes or becomes unusable, you may have to run a Windows XP recovery setup disk to make your computer usable again. When purchased, many computers don't come with a Windows XP recovery setup disk, but you can download one for free from Microsoft. The Windows XP recovery setup disk holds the computer software and files that you need to assist you in rebuilding your operating system.

Place a formatted floppy disk in your floppy disk drive. You will need six formatted floppy disks. Visit Microsoft's Download Center and download the version of the setup disk for your version of Windows (see links in Resources). Home Edition Professional Edition set up disks for floppy XP Recovery CD Maker Windows XP Home Edition and Windows XP Professional Edition have their own recovery setup disks and you must use the correct disk for your version of Windows. Click "Download" and then "Save." Find your floppy drive or optical media drive on the menu and click "OK." If Windows isn't functioning at all, you will have to perform these actions from a working PC. Remove the last floppy disk when the Windows XP recovery disk download is complete and place it in the computer on which you need to use it. Shut down your computer and then turn it back on. If your computer prompts you to boot from the disk, press Enter. If it doesn't, you'll have to go into your BIOS to set the computer to boot first from your disk drive. When your computer boots from disk it will automatically start running the Windows XP recovery setup disk from which you can then set up Windows XP. Hope this helps.

    How do i install my web cam ew192aa


    Plug the camera's USB cord into a free USB port on the computer, if this hasn't been done already. After giving the computer a moment to recognize the camera, a balloon will pop up saying new devices have been found.

    Insert the web camera's installation CD, and wait for the installer to appear. Click "Next" on each window as needed to install the software. If the installer does not automatically appear upon inserting the disk, open "My Computer", right-click on the CD drive, click "Explore", then open "setup.exe".

    Launch the web camera software, which can normally be found in the start menu under "All Programs". Test the camera to ensure it is working properly.

    Good luck!

    (A) Try interrupting the boot sequence and telling the computer to boot using the last known good configuration. Here's how: 1) Turn the computer on, and press F8 repeatedly until the boot options menu appears (the menu items include "Start Windows Normally," "Use Last Known Good Configuration," etc.). Use the arrow keys to select "Last Known Good Configuration" and press ENTER. The computer should boot correctly.

    if it dont this is the procedure given below to format the whole operating sys 1) Put the CD in the CD drive and turn the computer on. 2) As the computer begins to turn on, you should see the message "Press __ to enter setup" (it's usually F1, F2, or F4 - models vary). Press that key.
    3) You should then see the Setup screen for the BIOS ("Built-In Operating System") - using the arrows, find the "boot disk priority" settings and select your CD Drive as the first priority.
    4) Exit setup, saving changes (usually by pressing F10). The computer should then boot normally using the CD.

    What is the boot order in the BIOS? Set that to 1=FDD 2=CD-ROM 3=HDD
    While the PC is still on, put the Windows CD in the drive
    Restart the PC, watch the screen for a prompt to boot from cd - press a key
    The installation will start, you will need to choose where to install Windows
    If you do not need to save any data, format the C: drive and install window there.
    Follow the prompts the rest of the way through the installation.
    You will need to enter the Windows License code at some point.
    It is a good idea to change the regional settings to match your location and how you want the date and time formatted.
    Most things should be detected and installed automatically, so you are safe to accept the defaults.
    After about 45 minutes you will need to restart the PC and then you should be ready to enjoy Windows 2000.
    Be sure to go to Windows Update and install all of the patches.

    Good Luck and let me know how it goes.
