Computer not taking fresh install of any operating system
I have a computer that will not take a load of any operating system. The computer had viruses on it so I deleted the partition containing the viruses so I could create a new partition where I could install a new operating system, windows 7 over vista home. I tried installing 7, vista again and even xp. Everytime the installation gets cancelled half way through saying there is a corrupt file or a problem. Never had this problem using these disk before. What will heal this computer?

The best method to follow is, First boot using the CD/DVD, format the partition. As soon as the OS is loaded for the first time, install AV and update it. The install some spyware tools like malwareantibytes. Then proceed installing other softwares. I suspect some of your back copy should have virus. This should help you

If it is a new hard drive it could need formatting or if it already has software loaded it could need the drive formatting on a different machine.
I have noticed something strange, probably in the bios settings of one computer I had contact with recently. It resisted all attempts to load an operating system on an empty drive but loading an operating system with a different machine and then reinstalling the drive in the original it accepted the new operating system without any further hitches.
Another thing to think about was the time we tried to take a look at a hard drive and all my friend's machines refused to read it.
It turned out his machines had 32 bit operating systems and the fresh hard drive was on 64 bit.
First you will need the Window 7 operating system cd. place the cd in the cd room and let the auto run take place. this is not a quick process it will take several minutes. If the operating system is not loading you may have a different problem
Still it will appear, I suggest you install fresh operating system but make sure you have the utility drivers for computer and then back up you files those not infected. To wipe out all the viruses in your computer.
If system restore does not solved your problem, I believe the operating system is corrupted and need to reinstall fresh operating system or repair the operating system. If you computer problem are cause by the viruses, fresh install is advisable but if not, repair would do th trick.

by rebooting you must mean wiping out and starting fresh? installing a new operating system. you need either the dell factory recovery disks and start the computer up on the disks. with disks inserted follow to the load from cd promptg if not start over and when the computer turns on tap del key and change boot order settings to prompt boot from a cd dvd drive before a hard drive or any device. this way it will check for operating systems in the cd before the hard drive. then continue installing your choice of factory or updated operating system enter the serial number etc etc as it prompts. it should take about one to two hours beginning to end.
This occurred due to 32 bit operating system. Your Windows XP was probably 32 bit, for check that, go to "My Computer" properties. And now, your Windows 7 is 64 bit operating system. That's why that game is not running. Try to load a fresh 32 bit Windows 7 to fix your problem.
This will give you function straight away
Change the hard drive and load a fresh new Operating system,
If you dont have the drivers download them from the manufacturers site
If you have the disk with the drivers then should be easier than without.
If the password is in your bios then take the Computer Repair Agent.
The comfort of having it working versus not could be the biggest benefit.
fresh install XP is about 45 minutes,
then you'll need your softwares you intend to use.
When you first boot up your computer, keep pressing F8 until a few options come up, select Safe Mode.
If this doesn't work, try running a repair installation of your Operating System.
If problem still persists, then do a fresh installation (back up data too!) of your Operating System. Either way, I fresh Operating System preforms at its peak.
Hope I helped
the cd you have that comes along with your pc is the recovery cd. The recovery cd is only good if you like to restore to the previous factory default setup when you first purchased your computer. "Reformatting" is re-installing a fresh Operating system. I believed your problem is a unstable Operating System. by reformating you will have a very fresh system. You can call or go to the nearest computer repair shop to do the reformatting for you. Hope i ve help you in any way
