Hi,

Your computer cannot find The Hard-drive Or operating System.
Your Primary Hard Drive, is reporting an error.
Try changing the Jumper setting on this From Master To slave.
( jumper is amall plastic Block ) on back of drive.
Then set your CD/DVD To Master.

No display on computer


First thing is do you have a beep when the system boots? Sounds like you may have a BIOS issue I would start there........your RAM and processor are more than likely NOT the problem

Windows XP won't boot with "CREATIVE SOLUTIONS" PC


That machine is too underpowared to run xp pro.
Windows XP Media Center Edition
1.6 GHz CPU, 256MB Ram, and DirectX 9 hardware-accelerated GPU
you may get it to run but it is going to be dead slow. you will be waiting forever to load any apps with a processor under a gig, and less than 512 mhz of memory, it may work for emulation, but that's even questionable. I don't want to aggrvate you but that config is a decade old. Vista for instance needs at least 2 gigs of ram and a dualcore to run right. sorry bud, if you are dead set on it, the only thing you coula do is juice up the memory, to whatever the board is rated to take, or I would run windows 98, peace

How many hard frives can be installed


You can put as many drives as you can fit as long as you have the cables and connection. Usually 4 is the max in a computer, but you can by a SCSI IDE card and add even more. The biggest problem is to make sure that the jumpers are set to slave on one and master on the other. The jumpers are found on the rear of the drives by the power port. The master should be on the end of the cable and the slave should be in the middle. The longest part of the cable will go to the board. Look on your motherboard and you will see an IDE connection and it should have a 1 or a 2 by it; or primary and secondary.
I researched your computer. Here is the list of your specs: I am going to add my notes where you can understand them. I can't fix this for you, but if I helped you get it fixed, please rate it as a fixya. I did more than try; I told you exactly what had to be done.
Manufacturer:Dell, Inc.Part number: D46RL Processor -Type - Intel Pentium 4 2.80 GHz GOOD PROCESSOR FOR AN OLDER SYSTEM - SYSTEM IS OUT DATED BUT STILL OKAY FOR MOST THINGS. SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT BEFORE PUTTING A LOT OF MONEY INTO IT.
Processor main featuresHyper-Threading Technology -GREAT
Cache Memory - THIS IS PROCESSOR MEMORY -This enables the processor to process things. A Dual or Quad processor is better.
Type-L2 cache-Installed Size-512 KB Mainboard Chipset type - OKAY BUT LIMITS YOU.
Intel 865G - ON MOTHERBOARD USUALLY WITH A HEAT SINK ON IT.
Data bus speed533 MHz - REMEMBER THIS SPEED LIMIT
RAM Installed Size -ONLY 512 MB
-2 GB (max) -NEEDED AND CHEAP RIGHT NOW - IMPROVES SYSTEM AND WILL HELP WHEN MORE DRIVES ARE INSTALLED.
TechnologyDDR SDRAMMemory speed -333 MHz - REMEMBER THIS
Memory specification compliancePC2700RAM form factorDIMM 184-pinRAM featuresTwo DDR channels - THIS MEANS THAT YOU WOULD HAVE TO BUY 2 ONE GIG STICKS TO UPGRADE. Memory prices for a new computer might be cheaper. Something else to think about.
Storage Controller Type1 x Serial ATA - IntegratedController interface typeSerial ATA-150 -Remember this speed when you buy a hard drive. It is also only an ATA. They now have SATA drives and they get a lot bigger and are faster.
Storage controller interface channel qty2nd belowI could be wrong. Without seeing this board it looks like it might have 4 IDE channels total. Their wording is strange. This is not common on Dell motherboards. Of course Dell did not make the motherboard. They used one from a motherboard company and had the company possibly put their name on it. Could be INTEL, ASUS, GIGABYTE or some other company. This is why it is better to build your own system. You get what you want.
Storage Controller (2nd) Type1 x IDE - Integrated(2nd) storage controller interface typeATA-100 - **Speed change.**
:Controller Interface Type:Channel Qty2 Storage Hard Drive 1 x 80 GB - Standard - DMA/ATA-100 (Ultra) - 7200 rpmHard Drive (2nd) -You could add one here.
Optical Storage - this is on an IDE and will limit you.
TypeDVD-ROM - IDECD / DVD read speed48x (CD) / 16x (DVD) Optical Storage (2nd) Type16x DVD-ROM Drive +2nd optical storage read speed- 48x Storage Removable - This could be an EXTERNAL DRIVE.

Graphics Controller Type- Integrated-Graphics Processor / Vendor This takes away from your installed memory.
Expansion / Connectivity Expansion Bays Total (Free)2 ( 0 ) x Front accessible - 5.25" x 1/2H, 1 ( 1 ) x Front accessible - 3.5" x 1/3H, 2 ( 1 ) x Internal - 3.5" x 1/3HExpansion Slots Total (Free) ( 2 ) x PCI Could add 2 IDE SCSI Cards here.
Interfaces8 x Hi-Speed USB - Could add up to 8 External drives. CD/RW or Hard drives.
Power provided -250 Watt - This could not handle a lot of hard drives. Not enough power. System will not have enough power to run properly. Honestly I would not put a lot of money into this. You will be better off going with an External hard drive. The External hard drive can have its own power source and it will not need the power supply in the computer. So my suggestion would be to upgrade the memory and get an External drive.

COREL x4 running very slow & spooler problem


System Requirements:

Processor:
# Pentium III, 800MHz or AMD Athlon XP

Operating System:
# Windows XP with Service Pack 2 or later
# Windows Vista (32-bit or 64-bit editions)

Hard Disk:

Memory:
# 512 MB RAM

Optical Drive:
# DVD-ROM

Other:
# 1,024 × 768 or better monitor resolution
# Mouse or tablet

Where these are the minimum specs I would recommend at least 1+gb memory and a good graphics card and a P4 or AMD processor running at 1.8ghz or better, and that would depend on how in depth you get into the program

Problem with cs2


Hi, According to Adobe, the minimum requirement for Adobe Photoshop CS2 are: Intel Xeon, Xeon Dual, Intel Centrino, or Pentium III or 4 processor Microsoft Windows 2000 with Service Pack 4, or Windows XP with Service Pack 1 or 2 320MB of RAM (384MB recommended) 650MB of available hard-disk space 1,024x768 monitor resolution with 16-bit video card CD-ROM drive Internet or phone connection required for product activation With the 384MB recommended memory and Windows will use say 120mb, it might be better to have 512 of memory. Of course the lower your processor speed, the slower the software. With the minimum of 650MB of available hard-disk space, you would still need a pretty big swap file say 1024mb if with 512 memory. It is also to your advantage if you constantly defrag your HD. Adobe does not specify a video card requirement but you would probably be better off with a 128 or a 256 mb. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back with details of your motherboard/PC or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.

Computer keeps rebooting


-Try setting your BIOS to the manufacturers ?safe? mode or reset to factory defaults. -I would test the processor and memory in another working PC if possible. I?ve had both cause this in the past. -If no luck still then remove the hard drive, CD, floppy, the extra memory (it might be a MB socket problem). Make this as basic a machine as possible to remove other variables. -Try testing the video card in another working PC. Let us know how it goes, I?ll ponder one this some more tonight.
