Your hard disk might be SATA interface, and XP don't have access to this type of hardisk. It requires RAD driver for that type of disk.

1). You can make your HDD accessable to XP by disabling the SATA mode in your system BIOS setup. Then XP will access your HDD and it will be installed.

2). You can also make your HDD accessable to XP by atchi driver. Go to your motherboard manufacturer site and download SATA driver according to model number. This may be compressed or auto extract exe. Extract all files and copy it into a floppy disk. Then start your XP and press F6 at first screen, then it will be prompted to insert RAD driver from setup, follow the instructions and XP will be installed on your system.

Thanks

If you give me the model number of your system and let me know if it's Win XP 32 or 64 bit. I will see if I can help. Is there a graphics crad installed? If you had make and model of motherboard that would really help.

Vintron 845G Upgradation to 1GB RAM


You asked this question in 2008 and got an answer. Did you go to Crucial and run their scan?

Download and run Belarc. It will tell you more about your computer. Based on the information you have provided, your system will not support more than 256mb or 512mb of memory. It might support a 120GB disk.

I'd throw it in the junk pile and buy a new computer.

SYSTEM IS SLOW


Try running a disc cleanup and then defrag. They should be located in your control panel under the maintenance & performance tab. Doing this regularily will help keep your system running smooth. Hope this helps.

DELL OptiPlex GX150 Upgrading


The fastest processor you can install in a GX150 is a Pentium III 1.13 Ghz processor.

The Socket 370 was a design used only for P3 processors.

Max RAM for that system is 512MB no way to upgrade past that.

If you paid $100 for a GX150, you paid way too much (You can buy a refurbished Dell Dimension C521 for $225 at their refurb site)
