Sounds like a failed hard drive. if you experienced issues with your existing hard drive to warrant you to reload your machine, there is a good chance your hard drive has gone corrupt. thus causing it to freeze when it gets to a certain spot on the hard disk while reloading. this has happened to me on many machines with bad hard drives. i suggest replacing the hard drive

What System Restore not working. Gives a volume shadow copy timed out error when trying 2 create a restore point. if i try 2 update windows or create a system image it goes days not going anywhere.??

If system restore not working you can always try to do a repair operation with the disks that came with your machine. If you have no disks you are out of luck and will have to reload the machine with new software.

If concerned about losing data/files you can remove the hard drive and install it as secondary on another working machine, download the files you want to a usb stick and reload the hard drive and re install the files you previously saved. Good luck

P 3 with 256 sd ram,not able to install xp

It is struggling to install a driver. reformat the hard drive when you have the option (Fat 32 or NTFS which is better) and try again. If it still fails then remove usb devices except for keyboard and mouse if they are usb. Remove and add on cards and install on a basic system. If the install still fails then you have a corrupt hard drive or corrupt install disk. you can start the computer using the install disk and selecting recovery console to give you an dos screen. At the prompt type chkdsk and let it look for errors.

Laptop start up error

This error comes when there is memory issue .
Harddisk issue or RAM issue.
For that if you have windows recovery disk you need to run disk checking program
Most of this error comes becuase of hardddisk error.
Boot your computer with windows xp disk then enter in recovery console mode then type in prompt "chkdsk /r"
then press "y"
then it checks disk andf fix error if found any error on harddisk.
then you can boot your windows.

My computer turns on but goes to a blank screen with a blinking space holder like it is waiting for command but none of the buttons or cusors respond

hard drive is not working correctly. try rebooting and tap f8. see if that helps. If you can get it go to My computer, go to your c drive right click, select properties and select in the tools tab to check disk. select both options to check and restart machine. if that does not work then you have an error with the disk or arm on the hard drive and it will have to be replaced and reloaded with your software.

Good Luck!

If you only have 256MB ram then you will run into problems as XP needs at least 512MB if not more as a preload buffer
I have overcome this by having 2 XP disks available when cannot find file on 1 I put in the other exchanging as needed
Have done this on 3 computers
1 was only a p266 with 256 ram and 40 gb hard drive
Give it a try

IBM a20m ram issues

If they are compatible but your machine isn't happy with them, it sounds like they're faulty. Return both sticks to the retailer and ask them to replace both, just in case they replace the good one and give you the faulty one back.

Problem with a disk read error

There are a couple of possibilities.

1. The hard drive is defective.

2. The operating system is corrupt.

The easiest way to test this is to run the restore cd that came with the computer to reload Windows.

If you get this error while running the restore cd then you will need to get a new hard drive.
