Assuming you mean that this file is tab delimited or something similar any relational database software should work fine. Some suggestions are Microsoft Access, MySQL, MS SQL and SQLite. There are so many others here is a link a list of others http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_relational_database_management_systems

Restored Emachine T3516 computer to factory settings and now the computer says the ntldr is compressed


This should solve your problem:

1. Start the Recovery Console. If you do not have the Recovery Console installed, start it from the Windows XP compact disc (CD). To do this, follow these steps:

a. Insert the Windows XP CD and restart the computer. If prompted, select any options required to boot from the CD.

b. When the text-based part of Setup begins, follow the prompts; choose the repair or recover option by pressing R.

c. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot system, choose the installation that you need to access from the recovery console.

d. When prompted, type the Administrator password.

2. At the command prompt, type "cd \" (without the quotation marks), and then press ENTER.

3. Type "ren ntldr ntldr.old" (without the quotation marks), and then press ENTER.

4. Type "map" (without the quotation marks), and then press ENTER.

5. Note the drive letter assigned to the CD-ROM drive that contains the Windows XP CD. It is displayed in a format similar to the following: D: \Device\CdRom0

6. Type "expand <drive>\i386\ntldr._" (without the quotation marks) (where <drive> is the drive letter of the CD-ROM drive that contains the Windows XP CD), and then press ENTER. For example:

Expand d:\i386\ntldr._ <ENTER>

Note the underscore character after the "."

The following message appears: ntldr, 1 file(s) expanded.

7. Type "exit" (without the quotation marks). The computer restarts.

8. Remove the Windows XP CD and start the computer normally.

IF that fails put in your Windows installation CD and reinstall the operating system

Plz tell me how format my compaq 5441 pc?


Hi,

In order to format your laptop, you need to secure first your Operating System CD and the drivers for your laptop. Next, you have to back-up your files. Put them somewhere like an external drive for easy retrieval later.

After you've done this, you are now ready to go.

Here are the steps:
1) Insert the OS cd in your cd/dvd rom.
2) Restart your laptop.
3) While your laptop is still booting, press the key that will enable the bott sequence set-up.
4) Once the boot sequence shows up, choose CD/DVD Drive and press enter.
5) The next screen that will appear will be a blue screen with white text below. This means you have entered your OS CD already.
6) From there, you'll be guided with step by step instructions so you won't be lost. Just read it carefully.

Note: After successfully formatting your laptop, you need to install all your drivers.

Hope this helps.

Just get back here if you have follow-up questions.

Thanks!

Destructive recovery


Yes you can format the current partition your windows is on using the standard XP home disk and have a completly fresh clean XP install

If your starting the XP home CD in windows itself then you will get 2 options;
1 is to upgrade your current installation
2 is a 'New' installation

its the New installation you need...


If your starting the XP home CD from the CD boot menu [when you restard your PC] at the 3rd or 4th screen it will ask you the partition options;

1 is to 'Leave the current file system in tact'
2 is to 'Format (quick)'
3 is to 'Format'

you do not want option 1 that will keep all your old windows files etc [and the malware]

option 2 or 3 is what you need for a fresh install (2 is faster and will be fine for you)

If you need more help let me know...

HDD Partition help


Important If you follow these steps on a hard disk that is not empty, all the data on that hard disk is permanently deleted. We recommend that you back up your hard disk before you follow these steps.
To partition and format your hard disk by using the Windows XP Setup program:

1. Insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into your CD-ROM drive or DVD-ROM drive, or insert the first Windows XP Setup disk into the floppy disk drive, and then restart the computer.

Note To start your computer from the Windows XP CD-ROM (or from the startup disk), your computer must be configured to start from the CD-ROM drive, the DVD-ROM drive, or the floppy disk drive. In some cases, you may have to modify your computer's BIOS settings to set this configuration. For information about how to configure your computer to start from the CD-ROM drive, the DVD-ROM drive, or the floppy disk drive, see the documentation that is included with your computer, or contact the computer manufacturer.

2. If you are starting the computer from the Windows XP CD-ROM, select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD-ROM drive if you are prompted to do this.

Note If your hard disk controller requires a third-party original equipment manufacturer (OEM) driver, press F6 to specify the driver.

For additional information about how to use F6 to supply a third-party OEM device driver while the Windows Setup program is running, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

314859 Limited OEM driver support is available with F6 during Windows XP Setup If you are starting from the Windows XP Setup disks, insert each of the additional disks when you are prompted, and then press ENTER to continue after you insert each disk.

3. At the Welcome to Setup page, press ENTER.

4. Press F8 to accept the Windows XP Licensing Agreement.

5. If an existing Windows XP installation is detected, you are prompted to repair it. To bypass the repair, press ESC.

6. All the existing partitions and the unpartitioned spaces are listed for each physical hard disk. Use the ARROW keys to select the partition or the unpartitioned space where you want to create a new partition. Press D to delete an existing partition, or press C to create a new partition by using unpartitioned space. If you press D to delete an existing partition, you must then press L (or press ENTER, and then press L if it is the System partition) to confirm that you want to delete the partition. Repeat this step for each of the existing partitions that you want to use for the new partition. When all the partitions are deleted, select the remaining unpartitioned space, and then press C to create the new partition.

Note If you want to create a partition where one or more partitions already exist, you must first delete the existing partition or partitions, and then create the new partition.

7. Type the size in megabytes (MB) that you want to use for the new partition, and then press ENTER, or just press ENTER to create the partition with the maximum size.

8. Repeat Steps 4 and 5 to create additional partitions if you want them.

9. If you want to install Windows XP, use the ARROW keys to select the partition where you want to install Windows XP, and then press ENTER. If you do not want to format the partition and install Windows XP, press F3 two times to quit the Windows Setup program, and then do not follow the remaining steps. In this case, you must use a different utility to format the partition.

10. Select the format option that you want to use for the partition, and then press ENTER. You have the following options:

Format the partition by using the NTFS file system (Quick) 
Format the partition by using the FAT file system (Quick) 
Format the partition by using the NTFS file system 
Format the partition by using the FAT file system 
Leave the current file system intact (no changes) 


The option to leave the current file system intact is not available if the selected partition is a new partition. The FAT file system option is not available if the selected partition is more than 32 gigabytes (GB). If the partition is larger than 2 GB, the Windows Setup program uses the FAT32 file system (you must press ENTER to confirm). If the partition is smaller than 2 GB, the Windows Setup program uses the FAT16 file system.

Note If you deleted and created a new System partition, but you are installing Windows XP on a different partition, you will be prompted to select a file system for both the System and startup partitions. 11. After the Windows Setup program formats the partition, follow the instructions that appear on the screen to continue. After the Windows Setup program is completed, you can use the Disk Management tools in Windows XP to create or format more partitions.

For additional information about how to use the Windows XP Disk Management tools to partition and format your hard disk, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
