Hanging/freezing during an OS installation is indicative of a hardware issue. Usually the RAM or the mainboard is having issues.

Since I upgraded to Windows 7 I expierience that my computer hangs regulary


This can be related to few different things. One main thing to check is how much memory does you computer have since windows 7 requires at least 1GB to run smooth. Another would be incompatible driver or hardware. when you installed the OS did you run compatibility checker and hardware checker to see does your computer support installation of windows 7. Also anti-virus software might do it since windows 7 takes a lot of memory and add anti-virus to that and you get a very slow or unresponsive computer. Try to disable your anti-virus and see what happens. Also try to load windows to safe mode by restarting and constantly pressing F8 key and choosing safe mode and let it run this way. If it does not hang then it would be software or driver issue. Try removing everything from add remove programs that was put on other than windows and stuff that loads with OS and see does this resolve it. Main thing is that you have enough memory and also that your processor can handle the Windows 7. Try this and see what happens. If you run in any problems message me.

You cant transfer files from your old computer with Win 95 Using windows easy transfer which is a file transfer software in vista . If you want to transfer files then you have to copy them on a cd or dvd then paste them to your new computer . It will take a lot of time . Call a computer expert and tell him that you want to transfer the file from your old computer . He will do that easily .

Please rate me .

Hard drive driver problem


Hi,

It is possible that your hard drive is a SATA and therefore not readily readable by 98, XP but surprised not even by Vista. In any case, since you would still prefer to run XP (due to other software compatibility issues), pls press F6 when prompted by the XP installer. Additionally, you would need to have ready in a floppy the appropriate SATA drivers for your motherboard. They maybe downloaded from the motherboard manufacturer's website or possibly in the installer/driver CD that came with the PC.

Other than the above, it is also possible that you may have some issues with the availability of XP drivers for the other devices for that computer specially if it is branded.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Cant perform a quick restore.


what size is yous hard drive and is the windows installing it'self properly and the other problem is have you got all the motherboard drivers if not then the system will become unstable and the hard drive will need to be format back to manufactures default as the files thet were on drive are burrired deep and the only way to get rid of problems is using a program called kill disk then using your win 98 start-up floppy and fdisk the hard drive then partition then format the hard drive then install windows on then all other files for motherboard and graphics and other devices. it should take you about 1 day to get back on line with pc up and running. hope this helps
