HOE DO I REMOVE XP OPERATING SYSTOM FROM HARD DRIVE


Are you trying to upgrade from xp to windows 7? First check if your hardware can support windows 7. You should have atleast 2 GB or above memory, 60 GB of HDD for windows alone so 320 GB HDD would be recommended. Your cpu should be dual core or core 2 duo atleast. If those are checked, upgrade to windows should delete your windows xp.
Or the other option is format the partition of the HDD where windows xp is installed.
Let me know more. So that we on the FixYa can help.
Good luck

Laptop shows only 4gb ram & 300 gb hdd


This is the limitation of a 32 bit (x86) Operating System. A 32 bit OS can detect upto 3GB RAM only.

You may either try installing the x64 Bit of XP Operating System or Vista Service Pack 1 or 2 for 32 bit Vista Operation System to resolve the issue.

After installing the SP 1 or 2 of the Vista OS in the Computer, the OS will detect 4GB RAM.


Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Can't reboot dell 4100 dimension desktop


First put the hdd installation cd into the cd drive and try to boot. This should install the hdd driver as well as start formatting the new hdd. After the drive is formatted take out the hdd cd & insert the Windows installation cd into the drive. Boot. Windows should start installing on your new drive. After Windows is installed check the Dell support site for updated drivers for your system. Install drivers as needed. Any other software you had on your old drive will need to be reinstalled to the new drive. Hope this helps & please rate my answer. Thanks.
