My desktop is getting stuck so many times. It shows bluescreen and physical memory dump even when i tried to install new copy of windows. the error is technical error stop : 0X0000007A(0XCO7B9FB8,...


It can be a few things but usually the atapi.sys file is corrupt. If you can boot into your desktop, open the "run" box and type in "cmd". In that box type: sfc /scannow and press enter. There is a space between sfc and /scannow. You will be asked to put your Windows CD in the CD drive.
When did this problem begin? Have you installed a new harddrive recently? Have you installed new memory recently? Remove and re-insert the hardrive cables. Remove and re-insert the memory. Be careful about electro-static discharge. Sometimes just doing that will fix a bad connection.
Sometimes this error is caused by bad memory. You can download Memtest86 here: http://www.memtest.org/ Grab the prebuilt ISO.zip After downloading the file right click it and select "extract all" Use Img Burn http://www.imgburn.com/index.php?act=download to write the ISO to a CD. Keep the CD in the drive and reboot.
Also, there could be a problem with the hardrive. if you know the harddrive manufacturer you can usually go to their website and download their hardrive diagnostic software.
Sometimes erasing the hardrive (absolute last resort) will solve these kind of errors. Just be aware that you will lose ALL of your data and it mat not solve the problem. Darik's Boot and Nuke works good for that: http://www.dban.org/

Problems loading OS in Gateway desktop


Normally installing the os on a different mechine, and then putting into another pc dosent work.

If the hardrive is the oringinal drive, which came with the system, and you want to install xp on, you will have to use a dos disk with fdisk on it, delete all partitions on the drive and create a new partition, then start loading windows, it will give you the option to format the drive for nt(ntfs) file system and setup windows.

If you do that and it still gives you protecting files error, you will have to take the side panel of the computer tower, unplug from the mains and take the cmos battery out for about 30 secs, put the battery back in, plug in the mains and reboot the computer, start loading windows again
Hope this helps and post back if you need further assistance.

Cant reinstall windows because it sayd it cant find a hard drive


two things, check your jumper setting, if it is an IDE hard driver.
Second the computer usually won't recognize the Hard drive until it is formatted for the first time. Did the computer stop and say it could not find hard drive ? and you got F1 to continue, well if you did, just continue. Error 655D is a registry screw up, unplug your usb stuff if you can. remember your drivers aren't installed yet (usb requires drivers-once windows is reinstalling your get the drivers...good luck if you need any more help, just let us know

Cant finish loading win xp


is this a new computer (built for vista)? If so, then the most likely culprit is the driver set in XP cannot handle your hardware. so it locks when it gets to that point. Or it could be a read/write error. First try installing again, but delete all existing partitions and make new one, and when you format, do not use quick format. If that doesn't do it, you will most likely need to build a custom windows install cd to make it work. You can slip stream Service Pack 3 in, and that helps. you can also slipstream drivers for your PC into the disc so that the will be available at install time. Check out nLite, at the link below, really good package for doing this.

Laptop hard drive


Hi,
If you have reinstalled windows, on this hardrive using a different computer, it would not load into windows on the nortino 6770, because the windows now has the settings compatible with the other computer not this machine.
To get around this problem, you would have to reinstall windows, by placing the haddrive in the 6770 only. To do this , you can either copy the contents of the windows cd , to a flash drive or pen drive ,and then connect the same to the USB port of the laptop.
The other way , is connect an external USB cd drive and install the same.


Best of luck

I have two operating systems on my hard drive.


Hi,

You can manually disconnect the IDE/SATA cable temporarily from your motherboard (the one with NT PRO & XP HOME), then you can cleanly install a Windows XP on your new Hardisk. And after installing, you can re-connect the other hardrive on your computer and format it under your NEW Windows XP, be sure to set the BIOS BOOTUP sequence that you boot on the right drive.

Installing an old hardrive to a new computer


depending on the BIOS type, there must be a method to disable IDE-0 from booting. If no method found, try booting from floppy disc and then run setup.exe from CD. Try to find this in the BIOS settings, then enable it again after you have fixed the Windows.
