Save to disk file not found run ph disk for info

Laptop presario mod. 1275. win 2k installed was working ok until error message. Boots up with error message and only options are F10 and F1. Will not allow me to reinstall win 2k. Created the 4 boot floppies and it accepts them and starts setup. At the end of disk 4 it states setuup is starting windows but nothing happens. Cannot reset the clock in bios. It reverts back to 1998 every time. Took the computer apart and removed the keyboard to locate cmos battery and nothing there. I saw a cylinder shaped object that appears to be wired to the motherboard but no round cmos battery. Did this computer have a cmos battery? Any help appreciatted. Please contact by email.

Missing shell32.dll file


Go to your bios and make the cd rom the first boot disk.
To get into the bios, usually del key when booting gets you in.
Once you boot from the xp disk, follow the prompts until you get to the screen to hit f8, on the next screen hit R and the system will do a repair with out changing any of your settings.
Be sure to go to Microsoft and run the XP updates.

On my pc running win xp pack2 i want to install win 2000 pro. how can i do it? please suggest me.


You can either run a dual-boot system where you can boot into XP and Pro when you start your computer, or reformat and install 2k.

If you want to dual-boot you would need a blank partition on which to install it. Unfortunately if you do not already have more than one partition on your current drive, it would be difficult to split a single partition drive into adding another partition unless you are familiar with the tools required to perform such an operation.

However, if you only need to install 2k without having access to XP, all you need to do is insert the Win 2k disk and follow the installation wizard. When it comes to selecting where to install, it should show a partition containing winXP, which you can then install 2K to. Remember, all files on your XP install, including the operating system itself, will be removed. You would lose everything on that partition. If it is a single partition drive, anything on the drive is removed. You should back up any files you want to save by either transfering them to a different drive if you have one, or burning them to CDs/DVDs.

Select the partition you want to install to (if it's a single partition disk, there will only be one listed. If there are more partitions, you can select a different partition to install to which would allow you to keep XP), and I would recommend selecting reformatting the partition to NTFS.

Once it is done reformatting and copying files, it will ask to restart. Restart the computer, but do not press any keys upon startup when it pauses to ask to boot from CD. Wait until the 2K graphical installer loads from the disk, and then you can follow the setup wizard for 2K.

If you have any questions or problems, please add a new post stating them, and I will try to answer.

System disc error Compaq Pesario 1275


This is either an issue with the CMOS batter which may need to be changed, I have seen this error on thinkpads and one way of resolving it is to install an older BIOS, you can download a BIOS from your machine and install it using there instructions

Hope this helps

Cannot install win 2k or win xp xp on biostar m7ncg 400 v7.2 mobo


Hi dewasu1803,
seems like a hard drive issue. (Unless you received an error message from the system during setup of 2k or XP)? (Also hope its a certified Window CD & not a copy).
Here are two ways to get around this. The fastest is to use a software program to clean the hard disk drive. Best software I have come across it Boot & Nuke. Download from this site; http://www.dban.org/download (Darik's Boot and Nuke 1.0.7 ).

On the other hand, its suggested you go to the hard disk drives manufactures web site & download their utility software which will allow you to create a bootable floppy disk too. Boot the system to the floppy. If there is an issue with the drive the floppy software will repair it. If there is a problem with either the MBR or FAT it will also fix it. You'll also be able to setup the type of file system, NTFS or FAT32, ECT. If you include the manufacture & model number of the 120GB drive I'll include the web site for downloading.

For Seagate & Maxtor go here; http://www.seagate.com/www/en-us/support/downloads/

Western Digital start here: http://support.wdc.com/product/download.asp?lang=en

If you did receive an error message while attempting to install, post the message here!

Good luck dewasu1803!

Presario 1275 win xp sp2 restore and system recovery disks


The presario 1275 was made in 1999, and it is more than likely the CMOS battery. this was the problem on a unit I recently repaired.

Replace the CMOS battery. If you are inclined to do it yourself, you should be able to find instructions online to disassemble the laptop yourself. when you do the job, be careful with the metal heat shield plate. It has many grounding tapes which should be re-secured when re-assembling the unit.

You should be able to find a replacement at Radio Shack (CR1220).
