Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional for PC
When booting up my computer it's verifying the DMI pool data then hangs. On the line under that there is this symbol Yo Yo with 2 dots in the middle of the O's, looks like an electical outlet, what are these and what can i do to fix this? I have tried everything, bios, removing video card and putting in another, taking out the ram, unplugging everythin, everything imaginable. I do not want to do a clean install or wipe the drive clean this is a fairly new hard drive with things i don't want to lose.
Thank you in advance, GerBear
Just worth a try if your using XP. :) using XP recovery console:
To run the Recovery Console from the Windows XP startup disks or the Windows XP CD-ROM, follow these steps:
1. Insert the Windows XP startup disk into the floppy disk drive, or insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, and then restart the computer.
Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD-ROM drive if you are prompted.
2. When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console.
3. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you must access from the Recovery Console.
4. When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.
5. At the command prompt, type the command:
6. When finished checking, exit the Recovery Console and restart the computer, type exit at the command prompt, and then press ENTER.
Also verify that your HD has been set to master in Primary IDE and the others (if you have like CDROMS) in as slave.
