Hi,
put your windows CD in the DVD Drive.
start the computer, press F2 when it Boots up. Should take you into Bios settings. ** Be Careful here** entering the wrong values can render your laptop useless.
Scroll across the page until you see boot-device priority. move the DVD/CD Drive to the top, or as first boot device.
Save settings and exit.
when the computer reboots it should start the windows installation, and overwrite any missing-corrupt or deleted files.
Hope this solves your problem.
Mike @ compurepair.

I need to reinstall software windowXP on my laptop I have the factory product key number . Averatec laptop 3200 series


Did the manufacturer supply you with a reinstall disc? if so pop it in and follow the onscreen instructions to reinstall.

If you were not supplied one, then there is quite possibly an application on your laptop to reinstall windows, have a look in the start menu for something.

Short of that you will need to obtain a windows install disk from somewhere with which you can use your windows product code.

You may be lucky enough to find them on ebay. If not just use a regular Windows OS disk and then download the drivers from Averatec: Click here for the link: http://www.trigem.com/us/support/drivers.asp

It turns on but then it says "A disk read error occurred press ctrl+alt+del to restart". how do i fix it?


Try to get in to the BIOS and ck the settings. Make sure the hard drive is all the way in it's bay. reboot and press Esc. or Del as it is booting, to try and access the bios. This is where all of the computer main settings are found, make sure your hard drive shows up here or it may be bad- Sorry.

Try having the problem devices turned on and plugged into the USB port(s) and then start or restart your PC.

This should cause Windows to recognize them and install drivers if available from its library.

It may also ask for an installation disk if it cannot identify the device.

Installation cd


The installation cd is on a seperate partition of your hard drive. If you are wanting to reinstall everything follow these instructions
I have the same computer.
You dont need a disk- but do the following:-
1) Turn on your computer. 2) Press F4 repeatedly until you see the recovery program 3) Click - application on the left pane 4) then follow instructions on screen. That it.

If you need a file off the cd let me know!
