Erm, theres not difference with the xp discs, just have different software and drivers pre-encoded into the discs. I'd call up compaq and order some new ones or buy another copy of windows xp

Deleting old SP1 partition on dell 2400


Sound like you have two versions of the operating system out there. Not sure what your question is. If you want to remove the old version you should have done that while you were doing the installation. That would have been easy by just telling the system to do it for you.

Now you will probably need some type of partitioning software and i'm not sure if you just delete it if it will cause problems when you try to boot because windows knows it's out there.

If I were you, I would just reinstall windows and clean the disk of everything. It shows you what it finds out there as far as operating systems, so just delete them both, then do a quick NTFS format of the drive and reinstall windows.

I want to wipe a compaq presario sr1110nx desktop pc,the girl i am helping has no recovery discs, she just wants it to be as it was when she first bought it.


OK. I found your product in HP site and it is installed Windows XP while it came. So to restore it to factory default, you need to press F10 while rebooting. Here is the steps.

I TOOK MY LAPTOP TO THE GEEK SQAUD.they said i need to order a system restore cd for a dell latitude 620.something about 5 dl that have been deleted or destroyed.can you help me


The dl's they mention are Driver files.

A Driver file is a small piece of software that allows communication between the Operating System, and a device.

Operating System:
Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7 are some examples of an O/S.
Operating System

Device:
The hardware components inside the laptop, or outside, that are, or can be connected to the laptop.

Some examples of inside hardware device components;
Harddrive, (Hard Disk),
Optical drive, (CD or DVD drive),
Wireless adapter,
are just a few.

Some examples of outside hardware devices, (Peripheral's)
Printer, scanner, Fax machine, copier, (Or an All-In-One machine),
External harddrive,

The Drivers MUST match YOUR laptop.
Has to be for a Dell Latitude D620.
Also has to be for the Operating System that is installed on your Dell laptop.

You can download the drivers, and install them, IF Dell has what it is needed.
Some of the Drivers are within the Operating System itself.
They will also be matched to THAT particular Dell laptop you have.

The easiest, and best method IMHO, is for you to obtain THE System Restore disk from Dell, for YOUR laptop, and fix your laptop yourself.
(Cheaper too!)

1) Turn the laptop on
2) Insert the System Restore disk in the optical drive tray, close the tray.
3) When asked do a Repair. (Non-Destructive Installation)

After you get the System Restore disk, come back here, and someone will lead you through it, if you have problems.

{I have heard the disk/s are not cheap. Not a 'fanboy' of Geek Squad either)
{OH! Did i say that outloud? lol}

134008.jpg Dell Latitude D410 XP Windows Restore Disk

This means that your Dell Latitude D410 XP Laptop will automatically find and install all the drivers for your system, with hardly any user interaction. If you have installed a new windows operating system and half of your Laptop just wont work (with errors like no sound no internet or bad graphics) then this is exactly what this CD has been designed to fix repair. You can also use this CD Disk If you just need to return your software broken Laptop back to the factory setup. There are also a lot of utilities and resources on this cd that you would of found on your Laptop when it was new in its original new condition.

Normally you would need to independently download and install each driver and often enough it will be the wrong one! If you already have other drivers installed it can get very over complicated with device drivers not loading showing errors (like code 10 device cannot start) To make matters worse you end up with allot of older and newer revisions of driver too.

With this driver recovery system all you need to do is wait until the Laptop can not find the device driver it is looking for and put this CD DVD in. Sometimes you may need to select the DVD CD as the location for your driver. That really is all there is to it.

Works every time!
Guaranteed!

YOU WILL NEED TO INSTALL WINDOWS FIRST OR USE IT IN AN EXISTING INSTALL.

How to restore to factory settings presario cq50


2 possible solutions to this

1. Use the roll back function of your operating system to roll back to the last back up.

2. Insert your restore disk or Windows disk and do a format/clean install.

If you have a restore disc it will have prompts to "restore" your system and give you a warning about losing data-save off what you want BEFORE doing this restore

If you have standard windows disk you may want to use the format utility in windows first to clean the drive and do a fresh install.

Once installed don't forget to download updates and back up and then reload your other software.

have fun this will take several hours depeneding on the amount of stuff you have to reload and patch up.

Installed windows xp disk with a scratch and now wont boot up


If you have the Windows Key/License for the XP disk you can use someone else's copy of the XP disk or call Microsoft and ask for a replacement. You need the license and it must not have been installed on another PC previously.
