I had vista and was installing windows 7 and got to the network part of the install and the system went to resart and it went to a black screen with a fashing curser and now i can not access anything on my...


guess u were trying to install Win7 over Vista...it does not work that way....Win7 need to be a clean install...that is...it must be installed in a new partition after doing a full low level format....so you will have dual boot at start up...and u chose what u want vista or Win7 to work with for that specific session....
Dual boot helps in many ways...
1 - it helps file management better
2 - it helps to boot from one OS in case the other gives trouble
3 - virus attack are removed from either OS
etc etc

the best way to getback you system is to
1 download KILLDISK (DOS) utility program, get the DOS version
2 copy it on to a CD
3 get hold of a Win98 CD (bootable)
4 boot from Win98 cd, dont chose to install Win98,
5 press ESC and let Win98 quit installing, it will lead to a drive letter of you CDROM (say D or E as the case may be)
6 insert the CD that has the KILLDISK DOS utility
7 Run the program by typing KILLDISK at the CD drive letter prompt.
8 Read all the options available there...and kill the drive in which you had VistaOS/Win7 (C)...this will make all you C: drive sectors to "0"
i.e. it will wipe your C: drive clean and u can start with a clean slate....
if u r not concerned with the data in you disk...wipe all drives and disks in the PC....a 20GB disk will take aprox 1 hr to finish

for all this u must have the BIOS enabled to boot from CDROM drive...

once killdisk has finished doing the wiping process....
insert the Vista or Xp cd and install either...in the partition option make 3 or more partitions....C, D, E of at least 30 GB min for each...as Win7 will take aprox 18 GB....
in C: drive install Vista or XP as the case may be.....
once done....let the system boot and let it load Vista or XP
once in Desktop you can insert the Win7 cd and install it on the D or E: drive....the CDROM drive letter will change accordingly....when you make the partition....so be carefull to

let me know....

Dual boot prob


boot to win98 operating system. Insert the XP operating CD. IT will automatically open a window asking you to select Install winXP prof. It will ask for new installation and Upgrade (recommended)

select upgrade and select next and follow the instructions. it will restart and ask you select the os.
select xp in blue screen. install the OS other than C Drive.

please don't ever install in c drive.. do with caution.


Enjoy.

OS does not boot


Hello there.

Most likely the new stick(s) of memory is causing problems in your system. To verify this i would remove the newly added ram and see if the problem goes away.

Also you can download and run a memory test called 'memtest86+' from here. This can be burned to a cd and booted from the computer, to run a diagnostic on the new memory.

Hope this helps.

Win98 booting problem


hmmmm...i'm almost certain that you just jumped beyond the W98 ability to handle memory call routines. Check the deep W98 system requirements, and I believe you'll find that it's out of that O/S reach(for the simple reason that such memory allocations did NOT exist when it was released).

How to install os


This is a little difficult but it can B done :) Firstly I dunno if ya need to re-format ya drive? perhaps first ya could try to "Repair" of Win98? If that doesn't work,then, perhaps ya may have to re-format. If the Win98 is on a SEPARATE drive or Partition this also makes a difference.... Basically ... repair/re-install win98, then do a repair of ya Boot menu for XP, as Win98 sets up an incorrect Boot up for XP, and thus must be "Fixed" so XP will boot & show a Dual boot menu.. here are some links to help you step by step... http://pcworld.about.com/magazine/2109p156id111652.htm http://www.thehindubusinessline.com/ew/2004/08/30/stories/2004083000250400.htm

No screen display at all and no short beep for post-intel D845WN board


Try the old memory back in and see if you get the bios screen showing up, if not find the clear cmos jumper either marked JBat 1, clrclk, clrcmos or similar and try again. If neither your old memory or new no longer allows the pc to boot, i would say that the motherboard has been stressed when you have fitted the memory by forcing a flexing in the board and damaging the cmos chip, only replacing the board can resolve the issue if that is the case

Motherboard supporting both windows-98 and win-XP-pro


it would be difficult to advise you as to which board to go for, as there are many different things to take into consideration, i would look at www.ebuyer.com and choose one then do a google search for any buyers comments. The problem with Win 98 is that newer mobo,s will not have driver support for it, as with Win98 you have to continually revert back to your win98 cd to install certain files which are no longer compatible with new boards. If you wish to dual boot a system; using XP and vista would be more suitable for the type of hardware you will be using.
