Check to see that the controller channel it's on is enabled in the system BIOS. These are usually all on by default but it can vary by mfr.

A couple of examples of controller & channel would be:
> Secondary IDE controller - slave
> SATA port 3

If that's not it then check the Master/Slave jumper on the drive. Usually a problem there will cause the machine not to boot or the whole channel to fail.

What is "Printer spooler service "?


You typically install drivers AFTER clicking ADD A PRINTER, not before. And you do it only at the request of the computer! If it is a plug and play printer and if both your computer and printer are recent models, then simply plug in the USB cord and the computer should recognize the printer automatically.

If it is not plug and play, you will have to install drivers but you do that only after clicking ADD A PRINTER. And after clicking Add a printer, you wait for the computer to prompt you for the drivers. Choose to load it from a disc (if you have such) or from where you downloaded it to your computer (from the manufacturer's website.)

If you have no printer symbol, the printer has not been recognized by the computer. The spooler service is a Windows service that must be running before a printer can operate. But it is unlikely that you have to manually start that service! It is more likely that printer has not been recognized because the drivers have not yet been installed properly. This is why you get your error message about a spooler not running. The spooler process will run only after the printer has been recognized and that requires proper installation of the drivers.

You might go to the manufacturer's website and download the drivers for your particular printer and operating system from there.

Sometimes, the difference between success and failure is merely just when you attached the USB cord between the printer and the computer during installation! In some instances, you may have to wait to attach the cord until you have run all the installation software or when the computer prompts you. I suspect you will not presently find the printer listed in devices in device manager.

Good luck!

Is this computer able to dual boot win 7 and xp


Which version of xp are you trying to install 32 or 64 bit ?

Your ability to install a second operating system on your Windows 7 system hinges on one thing: partitions. If your computer has only one partition, you can't dual-boot your system without erasing all information on your computer. Two hard drives, or two partitions, enables you to dual boot. Check this information first, before proceeding.

Click "Start" and type "disk management" into the search bar. Click on "Create and format hard disk partitions" in the list of programs to open "Disk Management." Look at the list of partitions and available drives. The information here will be different on every computer. "C" is your primary hard drive and active operating system partition, and this drive contains your Windows 7 installation. You can't install Windows XP here without formatting the system. Check for secondary drives and partitions in Disk Management. Your system may have a "D" or "E" drive. Some computer manufacturers create a hidden partition with recovery software: don't remove this partition. If you have a secondary partition called "D" with more than 2GB of free space, you can install Windows XP here. b> Installing XP b> Insert the Windows XP Setup disc into your CD or DVD drive and close any windows that appear. Shut down your computer with the disc in the drive. Turn the computer on and look for a message saying "press any key to book from CD." Press any key on your keyboard when this message appears. Most computers are configured to look to the CD or DVD drive first, before booting to the operating system. If your system doesn't recognize the disc, you will have to enter your BIOS and change the boot order. Look to your manual for information on changing the boot order. Press "Enter" on the "Welcome to Setup" screen to load the Windows XP setup program. Read the license agreement and press "F8" to accept. Windows will detect that an operating system is already installed on your primary partition and present a list of other partitions to install XP. Use the arrow keys to select your secondary partition ("D") and press "Enter" to confirm that you want to install XP here. Then choose what to do with the partition: leave the file system intact or format the partition using FAT32 or NTFS. Windows XP supports both file systems, but requires NTFS on partitions larger than 32GB. You don't need to format the drive to install XP. Follow the prompts on screen to enter your personal information, serial number, and date and time. The setup program copies files to your PC and reboots -- don't press a key to boot to the CD. When you have to operating systems installed, a DOS screen appears asking you to choose an OS; press the down arrow key to highlight Windows XP and press enter to complete the setup. You will have to choose this every time to boot into XP, otherwise your computer will boot to Windows 7 by default. Hope this helps.

IBM M51 ThinkCentre doesn t recognize 4gig installed memory


You can confirm this in the BIOS and i'm sure it will show 4GIG. Your Operating system maybe a 32 BIT OS, hence it will only show about 3... GIG. It's a limitation for a 32 BIT OS.

Hard drive driver problem


Hi,

It is possible that your hard drive is a SATA and therefore not readily readable by 98, XP but surprised not even by Vista. In any case, since you would still prefer to run XP (due to other software compatibility issues), pls press F6 when prompted by the XP installer. Additionally, you would need to have ready in a floppy the appropriate SATA drivers for your motherboard. They maybe downloaded from the motherboard manufacturer's website or possibly in the installer/driver CD that came with the PC.

Other than the above, it is also possible that you may have some issues with the availability of XP drivers for the other devices for that computer specially if it is branded.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
