Keep the laptop, hope it got a working cd-rom/dvd-drive !(if not, take-out /replace the harddisk)
-win xp has to be removed from harddisk,
the hd must be formatted so you got a blank hd to set up your new system

you'll need :
- antoher PC with internet connection and cd/dvd-burner
- a win98 installation cd or bootable savecopy of it,
- a new win-xp install cd plus cd-key
- a program called PC Wizard(download)
and a bit of time...(one night or two:-)

follow instructions:

if you can enter bios (press F1 or F2 or Del)
during booting), youre lucky...

enter bios while booting, in the menu look for boot otions or devices, change order of boot devices, so that cd/dvd-drive is 1st, then save and exit (F10)
insert win98-CD, boot from cd, try to setup win98, you'll be asked to erase/ format all data/installations/partitions
on the harddisk (drive c:,probably), do so, format the drive using the FAT32-file system,
then end installation without fully setting up win 98.
now you should have a blank disk witout any operation system on it.

now put in win xp cd, go through the whole installation process
install and run pc wizard(it'll tell you all hardware devices of the laptop)
get the proper drivers for the notebook for win-xp from the net(google might be helpful)
install them.
happy computing!

if all this did not work, remove the harddisk,(you'll have to unscrew a lot of the laptop)
replace it by a new s-ata ide-drive()and..
erh.. come again then, this is a long process as well

If you were not asked to send it back ..Don;t most times Mio throw them out anyway and the trade in is a bit of a gimmick as they just give discount for previous users.

Keep it till your asked ( if you are) an adress will be sent to you for return if they really want it.

I bought a dvdr player here in cyprus the date of purchase is 30/7/2008 it has broken 3 times since i bought it the third time when i return it to the shop i told them i want it replaced it has a 2year...


I would contact the maker of the DVD player and explain the problem to them, by phone or e-mail. It should be in the user book their contact details.
You can also contact the Cyprus version of the C. A. B. or Trading Standards for help.

If it has been set, you can remove the old one by resetting the router. push a paperclip into the reset hole at the back of the router.

Forgot CMOS Password


Try leaving it blank see if that works first. If that don't work you may try to type in microsoft in the user name, and leave password blank, maybe that will work, If that don't work there are password retrieval disks you can buy, or you may have to reinstall the operating system, By doing a full OS (Operating system) restore. you will loose all info that was on the laptop, I sure Hope that Helps you out, If you need something else just ask here, thanks bear001
