I was reinstalling windows xp sp3 and suddenly the lights went off and back again. when i switched on the computer it did not continue with the installation but rather always kept on rebooting. when booting, i clicked on any key to boot from cd, but after booting it gave me this blue warning screen with error numbers. Please help becoz i dont want to lose my data. THANKS IN ADVANCE.

    can you precisely indicate the correct error message? if it is a blue screen error there are tons of possible resolutions that we can do. you can try to reformat first your hard drive, but unfortunately if you have data in it that would cause an issue as it may get lost if you have saved it on the main partition. just determine first the correct blue screen error message like ox00000 and so and so

If your reinstalling the SP3 from scratch. The best way is to reformat again the hard drive from scratch. Use partitioning software or the DOS based command.

That might be a data corruption with the lights go out. When chain of links and command during installation is broken.

Could be a physical fault with either the hard disk or a damaged XP installation cd. I would disconnect the hard drive and connect it to another pc via an ide/sata to usb converter to see if you can read the disk and save your data. These converters can be purchased for under a tenner on ebay.

Dimension 5100 and windows xp pro SP3 clean install


Well if you have it installed on the computer and cant get past the Windows logo. Put the SP3 disk in and do a repair. Make sure you hit -R and not the repair button after clicking continue. Well the directions for a repair will be on the screen. That is my thoughts on what you should do. If you have already done this, then I'm not sure where you should head to next. Hope this helps!!

Drive recognized by BIOS but suddenly not XP PRO SP3


make sure you have reinstalled all drivers for all of your drives and what not. If you have, are there any notifications in Device Manager? To get there, right click on My Computer, then click Properties. Click the Hardware tab, then Device Manager. Hope this helps, or let me know what you find in Device Manager.

Nikon Coolscan 9000 ED can not be recognized by computer


I am having the exact same problem...cannot get the Coolscan 9000 to show up in Device Manager. One thing I did try (to no avail) was to run the regsweeper.exe file that comes with the Nikon scan disk. It clears your registry when you reinstall. It still did not work though so I have a lovely "shoebox" sitting next to my computer that is worthless!
