    Does your Windows XP system come up at all?

    If you can get the F8 menu up can you boot "SAFE MODE"?

    If SAFE MODE works you should be able to run SETUP from the CD.

    If your Windows XP CD is bootable you should see the message

    "Press a key to boot from CD" right after you boot the PC with the CD in place.

To re-install XP over it's self. Put the CD in your cdrom drive. Start the system & press the F5 key every 2 seconds. This will load a boot menue. Using your keyboards up & down arrow keys highlit the cdrom drive & press enter. You will see to boot to the cd press any key, press the space bar. XP will start to load. Choose the correct options for a re-install.
Enjoy!

My samsung G2 cant read, it ask to be formatted but it cant be completed n propreties shows 0 used space, 0 free space


Most likely the hd is bad. If you want to know for sure purchase a usb enclosure, break open your drive case and put the hd in the enclosure. That will tell you if it's the hd or the circuitry of your case.

Mine hitachi hard disk is 80GB SATA i cant able to install OS because it is showing error some virus found and u r not able to formate this. first when i put OS CD in drive it will install some files and...


The problem is that XPinstallation CD does not have a SATA driver, unless you have a SATA drive on adisk etc. and can install the driver when XP asks for a hard drive driver then,XP cannot detect the hard disk and therefore won't install XP. The FIX. Go into the BIOS anddisable the SATA drive (enable IDE emulation), this will make XP think it is aIDE/PATA hard disk. Then you can install XP normally. When Windows hasbeen installed then install all the device drivers (including the SATA driver),then shut down and boot up and got into the BIOS and enable the SATA drive.

My hd 6y080p0 maxtor shows in device manager but does not show in explorer as a usable drive. I am trying to use this HD as a slave drive.


Hello,
You will just Change the pata cable as new or fit to HDD tightly and restart the PC.If the problem is same, your HDD parturition has been corrupted unfortunately. so you need to format again from >my computer>manege>disk manager >and format.
If you don't want to loss data dowmnload ontrack boot cd and recover the partition.

My external hard drive is not being seen by my computer?


1 of 2 things can be wrong...1 (cable may be loose) unplug the cable (ext HD) connected to pc, now reinsert back into pc..try this once or twice...until you see it appear in my computer....if this is not working and your ext HD came with a CD software..uninstall (make sure ext HD is not connected) software, then reinstall make sure your firewall allows it to be connected....this should do the trick...now plug HD back up to pc...do not format your ext hd unless you really really dont want the data on it (format erases everything)

Hard disk


if you are installing a dos based system thn dos formatting is very good

if you are going to use xp then make boot option in setup as bootable from cd rom
put a win xp setup cd in the cdrom drive
it will boot up saying press any key to continue , and follow the scren instructions
the whole process is that simple a hd can be formatted till bad sectors are not shown up upto 8 %. more thna 8& bad sectors cannot load windows, however dos can still be loaded and so also win me so it doesnot affect the hd
what affects is the jerks and voltage supply variations on the har d disk and some bad virus infections and the temperature the hd has ... always leep hd at a tem p lower than 37 degres c
use a fan to achieve this a 12 volt small fan mounted on the hd .
