I NEED TO FORMAT MY HARD DRIVE ON MY DELL LATITUDE D810 LAPTOP I HAVE VISTA HOME BASIC OPERATING SYSTEM NOW AND I WANT TO PUT WINDOWS XP ON MY LAPTOP INSTEAD. I NEED STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS IF POSSIBLE....


If you change your operating system to Win Xp, you will loose your camera, dvd burner and possibly your ethernet controllers to get on the internet. Win Xp does not support them. Are you sure you want to do it anyway? If so, all you have to do is put the Win Xp disk inside the cd/dvd player on the pc and restart it. You will see "press any key to boot from cd". Press a key to follow the prompts and keep hitting the continue or next prompt until finished.

Dell Latitude D800-Win XP- My Dvd/rw wont write


Because you lost two devices, the DVD and the wireless mini card, I believe your problem is a drivers issue.
You should make sure you do not have any Malware that is removing these drivers.
If you have access to the Internet download and install Malwarebytes. It has a quick scan that will ID any infections.
Then get the newest drivers for those two devices from Dell's support site.
Before you install the drivers, remove those devices in Control Panel.

if you click this check if you will be able to see DVD rom at the right side of the registry editor window
you must delete the upper and lower filters
after that restart the computer and try to put in dvds


for vista or win7

- click start and type in the start search regedit
after this just do the same thing with the win xp instructions

try also to update the DVD codec. you can also try to download the most updated windows media player, power DVD or any software/program that have dvd codecs or that acts like a player for DVD

i hope this works.

Want to remove Win Vista and install Win XP on two computers


have or can you get a win 95/98 disk...
these disks utilize the dos enviroment...
when you boot with them you can easily get in the dos platform (c://prompt)
once there type in fdisk and follow instructions.
you can also do this from usb ..you need to make usb bootable first.
you may be able to use xp disk and choose repair which will take you to the dos prompt.
you may be able to format hd with vista disk and before it start to install files interrupt it(remove disk)
not advisable though.
if you want program to create bootable usb let me know.
I'll need youre email address to send via attachment.

How can I setup sata drivers using cd or dvd


Hi, I think the problem lies with your bios setting. Set the POST to first boot from the CD/DVD drive. If it is set to first boot from the CD/DVD drive, then the problem comes from the disk. It might not be a bootable disk. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. Thanks, Mike H

Iqon Desktop to be reinstalled to Factory default Win XP Home.


Usually the problem lies with your Software or Windows Installation. The problem is when you Boot your computer it can't read because some how the hard drive got scrambled. You have to Install a fresh windows to solve the problem, no other way around it. Obvioulsy, its no good to you in this condition, Insert your Installation disk and turn the computer off and then back on, Install a new Windows. Good Luck. When the computer asks you if you want to install windows to that drive, you might want to consider if you have to delete that partition, and then create it again, after you do Windows will automatically format the disk for a fresh installation.
