Hi,
if you think the hard disk is okay, then the culprit is your memory... trust me on this... I have experienced it a lot of times in our repair shop. When installation is done then return back the memory.

Good luck.. Fixya me on this one.

Reset bios


Installing a fresh operating system is a good option, and there might be a feature in the BIOS to restore the system to factory defaults. Information on how to do this:

Windows XP: Dell PC Restore

Using PC Restore:

1. Turn on the computer.

During the boot process, a blue bar with www.dell.com appears at the top
of the screen.

2. Immediately upon seeing the blue bar, press <Ctrl><F11>.
If you do not press <Ctrl><F11> in time, let the computer finish
starting, and then restart the computer again.

NOTICE: If you do not want to proceed with PC Restore, click Reboot.

3. Click Restore and click Confirm.
The restore process takes approximately 6 to 10 minutes to complete.

4. When prompted, click Finish to reboot the computer.

NOTE: Do not manually shut down the computer. Click Finish and let the computer
completely reboot.

5. When prompted, click Yes.

The computer restarts.

Because the computer is restored to its original
operating state, the screens that appear, such as the End User License
Agreement, are the same ones that appeared the first time the computer
was turned on.

6. Click Next.
The System Restore screen appears and the computer restarts.

7. After the computer restarts, click OK.

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.

Blue screen of death


Run the recovery console and type chkdsk /r

Insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, and then restart the computer.

Boot from the CD

When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console.

If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you must access from the Recovery Console.

When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.

Then type the chkdsk /r command

Let that run through and then restart the machine after it finishes.

If that doesn't fix it, run the Windows XP Repair Installation. You can find a walkthrough here - click here

Computer wont bootup windows xp error loading operating system drive 1 not found please help me


1.Restart your computer. Immediately after the screen goes blank for the first time, press the F8 key repeatedly. The Windows Advanced Options menu appears. If the menu does not appear, restart your computer and try again. Use the cursor keys on your keyboard (your mouse will not work) to select Last Known Good Configuration, and then press ENTER. Windows XP attempts to start.

.
If you recently installed new hardware, shut down your computer and disconnect the hardware. Then, restart Windows XP and troubleshoot your hardware to get it working properly.
3.
Restart your computer and press F8 again. This time, choose Safe Mode and press ENTER. Windows XP attempts to start in Safe Mode, which does not automatically start programs and hardware, and displays very primitive graphics. If Windows XP starts successfully in Safe Mode, you can remove any programs or updates you have recently installed. Then, restart your computer normally.

Performing a repair installation of Windows XP can fix many serious startup problems. While you should not lose any of your important documents, you might lose settings, and you will need to reinstall many updates.
Before performing a repair installation of Windows XP, you should have both your Windows XP CD and your product key available.
To perform a repair installation of Windows XP
1.
Insert your Windows XP CD into your computer.
2.
Restart your computer. If prompted, press a key to start from the CD-ROM.
When the Welcome to Setup page appears, press ENTER on your keyboard.
On the Windows XP Licensing Agreement page, read the licensing agreement. Press the PAGE DOWN key to scroll to the bottom of the agreement. Then, press F8.
When prompted, press R to have Windows XP attempt to repair Windows by reinstalling important Windows components.
The repair and reinstallation process might take more than an hour. Eventually, Setup prompts you to answer questions just as if you were installing Windows XP for the first time. For detailed instructions, read Install Windows XP.

Hard drive failure


Hi, you have nothing to type there. You mean you have chosen the 1st section that opens recovery console,right? not that one. You should see the Terms of Agreement in your WinXP cd first, press F8. A section containing to install a Windows XP appears, Press Enter. Then that's the time it will search for your previous Win xp installation. In will then let you choose whether you will install a fresh copy of WinXP OR to Repair it. Choose the Repair. It will automatically repairs and format your Harddisk without deleting your files in it.  IF there's no Option to repair it, that's the time you will have to go to Recovery Console.
  • To run the Recovery Console from the Windows XP startup disks or the Windows XP CD-ROM, follow these steps: 
    Insert the Windows XP startup disk into the floppy disk drive, or insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, and then restart the computer. 

    Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD-ROM drive if you are prompted.
    When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console.
    If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you must access from the Recovery Console.
    When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.
    At the command prompt, type the appropriate commands to diagnose and repair your Windows XP installation. 

    For a list of commands that are available in Recovery Console, type recovery console commands or help at the command prompt, and then press ENTER. 

    For information about a specific command, type help commandname at the command prompt, and then press ENTER.
    To exit the Recovery Console and restart the computer, type exit at the command prompt, and then press ENTER.
If still you cannot get through to that, drop me a comment again and tell me what you have done. Feel free to ask me.

I turned my computer on and i get a blue screen and the message code are:0x000000ed(0x80E5A030,0xC0000032,0x00000000,0x00000000) what do i nedd to do to get back to the main screen of window xp?


You have a corrupt filesystem. To correct this:

1. Start your computer by using the Windows installation disk.
2. When the Welcome to Setup screen appears, press R to select the repair option.
3. Select the Windows installation that you want to access from the Recovery Console. Most people only have one choice.
4. Type the administrator password when you are prompted to do this. Note If no administrator password exists, press ENTER.
5. At the command prompt, on the drive where Windows is installed, type chkdsk /r, and then press ENTER. Chkdsk will attempt to correct any errors it finds.
6. When chkdsk is finished, type exit, and then press ENTER to restart your computer.
If this procedure does not work, repeat it and use the fixboot command in step 5 instead of the chkdsk /r command.

Good luck

I have an Acer 3680 that has slowed down to a crawl. Can you fix this so that it runs at a normal computer speed?


uninstall any programmes you no longer use, run a virus and spyware scan, as this alone may be the cause, if you have non installed go here:-

check you have atleast 1GB of hard drive space free as this can cause slow ups and look how much memory is installed as you may need to upgrade the amount of memory to work newer and more memory hungry applications
