Ive change hardrive and now i cant install niethere windows 7 or xp,in windows xp my accer 2920z always hang when its on the 35mins left of installing windows

While installing Windows 7 :

1.If you are downloading it through a CD, check that there is no
errors or virus in the CD.

2.If you are downloading it from the internet and it is not installing,

1.There must be any error or virus
in the website that you are
downloading from.


2.In your computer, there must be any
special system requirements(s) missing
for the download.

If my solution have no use, ask to other experts.

Cant install realtek hd audio player error 401


From your question, I deduce that:

1. You are installing a Sound Crad Driver from an OEM Vendor (Toshiba support site).
2. You are runnimg Windows XP. in the case of Windows Seven/Vista, these two platforms support a generic HD Audio Driver (hdaudio.sys as verified from the DirectX Diagnostic Tool)
3.In that case, you need to download and install:
(a). The Intel Chipset Drivers for your device.
(b). The Microsoft Unified Audio Architecture HD Audio Driver , which you can download here as a HotFix ( Click here to go to the link.
4. Once you have downloaded all these components and installed them, go on and install the Realttek HD Audio Driver from your OEM Vendor.

Good luck.

Gateway MX6927 Windows Xp won't boot

put your xp disk in the optical drive.Turn off computer. Turn computer back on as soon as you turn it on start tapping f 12 should go the boot menu giving you a choice of booting from cd or hard drive choose boot from cd.Be sure you choose repair rather than new installation or you could loose all your information stored on the hard drive,I personally would try safe mode first you can get to safe mode by tapping f 6 when you first turn on your computer.
