Replaced hard drive, computer isn't completely loading


If you replaced with a brand new HD then there are no files for the computer to read and boot from. You really have two choices, contact the vendor of the computer and see if they will offer you a set of the original installation disks. If not, you will have to go buy a new "operating system" set of disks ex: Windows 8 disks. You will not have any of the information you stored before as it was all on your old hard drive. However, in rare cases, a pulled hard drive that was unable to boot can be READ as an external drive. You can buy an external case for it and plug it into an operating computer and perhaps retrieve your files. You will not be able to transfer any programs. Just files like photos word processing etc.

Installing Operating System on New Blank Hard Drive


Did you partition the hard drive ? Make sure that it is compatible .Some HP computers will only allow you to use certain products and you can not upgrade\downgrade or change an operating system .Try going online on another computer and see if the devices in your netbook can be changed or upgraded. HP is big for "Thank you for your business & your stuck with it the way it is " I wish you luck .

Replace hard drive motherboard


Before you start replacing drive you need to ask yourself if you are trying to replace a bad hard drive and just want to start with a clean install of the O.S. OR are you replacing your hard drive with a bigger one and wish to keep your installed programs, data and documents. If you want to keep your data and documents you need to know how to save the Files and folders on your computer to a CD, DVD or a USB hard drive. Just replacing the hardware involves unplugging all cables from computer after shutting it down. Then opening the case and unplugging the cables from the hard drive and then remove the screw(s) retaining the hard drive. Remove the old hard drive from the case and replace it with the new one, replace screws and plug cables back up watching that that the connectors are correctly aligned with the key(s) on the hard drive's sockets. Replacing the Hard drive also involves installing the O.S. and all your programs and applications on the new hard drive. You can find a lot of information in the internet about this.

In this case the hard drive is mounted in a frame. Look for mounting screws that locks this frame to the computer case. When you remove this frame you can access the screws holding the hard drive.

I built a computer for my aunt using an Intel motherboard, Intel processor, 2 x 500MByte DDR3 RAM in a Blue Ninja case purchased from Tiger Direct. The computer worked well for more than two years then...


One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive
Test the leads that attach to your ((hard drive from the motherboard)) or replace all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA and the ones that attach from your ((motherboard to hard drive))
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they are probably old and faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error


hope this helps

Not reading scsi drives: 1 hard drive, 2 cd roms


you haven't mentioned what motherboard model you have and since it's hard for you to identify the scsi adapter, you're pretty much asking us to tell you about the birds and the bees or starting from ground zero...

this is a lot of information that you need at once.
if you aren't savvy with computer electronics, I suggest taking the pc to a pc technician and paying him a few bucks to interview him/her and give you a lot of information. you should physically be on site with someone that can optically show you how to deal with pc hardware before you begin tinkering with it on your own.

HELP ME


hi there my friend,

we have the hard way and then we have the easy way...

the hard way is to bootup with your bootable xp cd .follow the installation guide ..then.put in your key when you get the chance to ..and finish the installation. then apply service pack 2 to your installation .. and you're done...

the easy way would be to make a Slipstream Windows XP Service Pack 2 CD....which you can use each time you need to fix your system.

1 - Download the (full) "Network Install" of the Service Pack (English version [266 MB]), and save it to a directory (folder) on your hard drive (in my case D:\XP-SP2). Other languages can be downloaded from the Microsoft Download Web site.

Note: do not use spaces in the folder name!

2 - copy your Windows XP CD to your hard drive. Just create a folder (I used \XP-CD), and copy all the contents of your Windows XP CD in that folder.

3 - , open a Command Prompt (Start > Run > cmd), and go to the folder where you downloaded SP2 (cd \foldername). Type the command: servicepack filename /integrate:drive/path. In my example the command is WindowsXP-KB835935-SP2-ENU /integrate:D:\XP-CD.

Extract SP2 files

If you get the error:

This service pack can't be integrated error

This is caused by the fact that your Windows XP CD contains updates that will be automatically installed when you run setup. This type of CD's will usually be from larger OEM suppliers (like Dell, HP, or others).

You cannot use this type of CD to create a slipstreamed SP2 install.

First, the files will be extracted, and next they will be integrated in your Windows XP files:

Updating Windows Share

When ready, you should get a confirmation. Windows XP Service Pack 2 has now been Slipstreamed into your original Windows XP files.

Slipstream Completed


Creating a Bootable CD

For this part I used IsoBuster and Nero Burning ROM 6

After you install IsoBuster, you can choose to use only the product's free functionality for what we want to do, IsoBuster will look like the image below (you need to have your original Windows XP CD in the CD-ROM drive).

Start to extract the boot loader from the original Windows XP CD. Using IsoBuster, select the "folder" Bootable CD, and right-click Microsoft Corporation.img. From the menu choose Extract Microsoft Corporation.img, and extract it to the folder on your hard drive where you have your Windows XP files (D:\XP-CD in my case).

Extract Boot Image

Next, start Nero Burning ROM, and choose CD-ROM (Boot) in the New Compilation window. On the Boot tab, select Image file under Source of boot image data, and browse to the location of the Microsoft Corporation.img file. Also enable Expert Settings, choosing No Emulation, and changing the Number of loaded sectors to 4 (otherwise it won't boot!)

Nero Boot Settings

The ISO tab should be configured correctly as shown below:

Nero ISO Settings

If you have an older version of Nero you won't have the option Do Not Add ";1" ISO file version extention under Relax ISO Restrictions. You won't be able to boot your new CD, so update Nero!
You can configure the Label tab to your liking, I would however recommend that you keep the Volume Label the same as on your original Windows XP CD. Here are some (English) Labels:

* Windows XP Professional: WXPCCP_EN
* Windows XP Home: WXHCCP_EN
* Windows XP Professional OEM: WXPOEM_EN
* Windows XP Home OEM: WXHOEM_EN

Nero Label Settings

Next press New, and from the File Browser window, select the files and folders from your slipstreamed location (in my case D:\XP-CD). Now drag & drop the selected files in the ISO1 window.

Copy Files

Next, burn your new CD.

Burn

You now have a Bootable, Slipstreamed Windows XP Service Pack 2 CD!

Re: lg tower xp install


Hi,
FDD Floppy-Disk Drive.
It would be advisable to go to the motherboard Manufacturers site. And download the setup or user manual for this Board.
The White or black plastic jumper blocks i,ve refered to, are on the back of the Actual CD/DVD Rom Drive. Located at 1 end. this should be set to Master or Slave. diagram of settings usually printed on top of the drive. I dont know whether you have an IDE Drive ( 40-80 strand ) wire connecter.
Or sata drive connectors. 1 single red cable from motherboard to drive.
please bear in mind, this site is designated to solve technical solutions.
i,ll help all i can, but if your not technical minded, perhaps this is a job for someone more competant than yourself. no disrepect intended.

regards mike @ compurepair.
