Question about ViewSonic Tablet PC V1100

2 Answers

I'm trying to reinstall XP on my sisters viewsonic V1250s and I cant get it to load. I have the recovery cd's and an external cd drive. Her roomate put linux on it and jacked it up. I put in a new HDD and when I try to load XP from the recovery disks i get a blue screen of death telling me to check the disk or that it has a virus when I try using an external cd drive to load it. I tried loading dos 7.1 and then copying the I386 folder but cant get windows to load that way either. Why this didnt have an internal cd drive built in is beyond me. And why send recovery CD's if they wont load on it? I really need help getting this back up. I need to know how to load the recovery cds on this, and how to get the laptop to boot from the CD. Many thanks for any help

Hello, first of all, the XP media has to be "bootable". Now, you will have to format the hdd so that the Linux partition can be deleted. When this is completed, recreate the partition, generally XP will do this for you, try booting with the restore cd's again and it should work, start the install....cheers

> check the disk

Check for scratches on the media.

Also, it could be "bad" RAM in the computer that is creating "random" problems, which could be reported by the B.S.O.D.
If the computer has multiple sticks of RAM, remove one, and try again.

My pc cdrom/dvd drive failed to read my recovery cd


Are you attempting to boot from a bootable disc? A failed drive can cause the other on the bus not to work. Try each one separate set as master or cs (cable select).

Can't install XP


It could be bad RAM, but it could also be drive error.

Try running chckdsk.exe

If the drive is ok, try copying the win xp cd to the HD and try to install from the HD

First, you need to copy your Windows XP Setup CD contents to your harddrive. I recommend saving the xp install files/folders to a separate partition than where you're going to install xp to (ie. have setup files at d:\winxp\ and then install xp to c:\ drive)

restart your computer with the win 98 boot disk
at the command prompt change to the drive with the xp files
ie. cd d:\winxp\i386\
type winnt to start installing
install as usual

Unable to get pass login window


External HDs are not usually recognised on boot, however some external CD drives are.. although most of these type of devices have a built in recovery partition, which should allow you to restore this tablet back to factory without having to resort to loading from external devices. try pressing f10 or f11 on boot or look for other messages on bootup to press a key combination if all else fails try looking for instructions on factory reset from the manufacturers website

Windows Login issue


I think you are either going to need the docking bay or an external PCMCIA CD-ROM drive to reinstall either Windows 2000 or XP. Legally I believe you need to install a new OS anyway as MS does not allow the transfer of education licensed operating system from the original owner. http://www.viewsonic.com/pdf/us_eng/products/vp_guide_1000_10-22.pdf None of those options work?
