You mean it says the "CD/DVD" you inserted is empty?
I would say you need to insert the CD/DVD at the booting time (i.e when your computer is starting up), it should then boot from the CD/DVD and not from your Hard disk and then start the recovery process.

Place the disc in your drive. Then reboot your computer. Your computer should then boot from the disc.

Recovery CD for Windows XP Media Center Edition has error on it...how can I get a new CD? I can't get it loaded...


HI there,

If you go to eBay and type "windows xp media center edition" into the search window, it will shunt you to a page where there is a full install retail disc there for sale now for $55 plus shipping.

If your machine is a Dell, they offer a little known "One Time Only" recovery media replaement for free. Go to this page and fill out the information and for your reason for the replacement choose "Missing/LosIf/Damaged media. If they write you that the machine is out of warranty, write back and explain that Dell has extended this courtesy for years and perhaps the agent should speak with his supervisor. This has worked for me 100% on at least 50 Dells I have repaired.

Reinstall windows system is very easy to to operate but without having a Bootable Disk or that Windows XP Media Center Edition Disc, i think you have to buy a new one or Genuine Windows XP Media Center Edition. It's in the market.
And also if you friends that are using any Compaq Presario which they have the WINDOWS CD. Borrow it to install in your LAPTOP.
At least XP Media Center Edition they use.
There is another options on how to put operating system on your laptop. To gather any information or to do at least we have any ideas how to get it.
No need for any Serial #. Genuine Windows Media Center Edition have it's own LICENSE or CD KEY.
Hope this might help you my idea. Good luck!

Hey,

you will need a copy of the windows installation cd or the recovery media that comes with the computer.

Ones you have that you have to reinstall windows or restore from the recovery media to get your computer working normally again.

You can also take the computer to a local professional who can install it for you if you don't have the disc.


Let me know if you need anything else.


Thanks,
Ekse

I'm having problems with WindowsXP loading at start-up


I don't think you have a virus, Norton 360 is a very good antivirus program and would have caught it. Try disabling all of the Norton 360 features then load the Windows XP disc. Sometimes anti-virus programs interfere with the processs. I am assuming you have the Windows XP original disc. This should work.
