Uses of ram


RAM (Random Access Memory) is electronic memory that stores the operating system (or parts of it), programs and data. It's "volatile" and everything is wiped out when power is removed. So, in that sense it's temporary while the computer is turned on. That's OK because the operating system, programs and sometimes data will be loaded from the hard drive or other permanent memory when the computer boots or when you start them later. RAM is a lot faster than hard drives - so its purpose is to speed up data transfer in and out of the CPU memory which is even faster but quite a bit smaller.

Failed install with XP I had a bad key, bought windows 7 (downloaded) but my computer tries to run XP and I don't know how to wipe it out and install windows 7


I hope that you stored the download on something else. If you wipe that drive it will erase the download. Anyway you need to get a boot disk to load first and then try the install. Hirons boot disk. Look here: http://www.hirensbootcd.org/download/ dont click on the advertising.

Ezbook lost password wont to wipe computer


Why wipe it? As long as the drive isn't encrypted you can just blank out the password. Download and burn Hiren Boot CD to a disc. Put it in this laptop and make sure boot to CD is first in your boot order in BIOS. Then follow the video.

How to wipe hard drive and clean install windows 7


Sounds like you may have purchased a "Windows 7 upgrade" (whatever version Home/Pro,) version....

now that win7 is on it, you can boot from the CD, choose the "repair my computer" option, then choose the Advanced Startup repair options....and you can use the command window to re-format, or delete the partition and and re-format the drive....then start-over with a clean disk.

article to read on getting it to 'authenticate' if you DID buy Upgrade media and you want to do a clean install, (normally it won't without some tweaking.)

The recovery discs I made on day 1 will not work. HP doesn't seem to have Recovery Disc Kit anymore. Where can I get the original W-XP ?


Last time I checked you could still get the Restoration Disk, for your HP computer. (Or Compaq, since HP bought out Compaq)

Did you go to HP Support, and click on Contact Us, in the upper left corner of the page?

After you do so, you will be taken to a page that offers you options of contacting them. I advise using the Call option. Nice to speak to a human being!
http://welcome.hp.com/country/us/en/contact/phone_assist.html
1-800-474-6836

I would have the serial number for your computer handy. This is either on the back of a Desktop computer, (Next to the Windows Product Key), or up on the side of the computer case.

It's on the bottom of a laptop, in the white Service Tag (s/n is Serial Number)

The last time I called for a Restoration Disk for a Compaq computer from them, it was free. The shipping and handling was not.
$17 for a 5 to 7 day ship, $24 for a 2 to 3 day ship.

The Restoration Disk just has the needed basic Windows files necessary to repair the registry. After you install the disk, you may need to go into BIOS Setup, then to Boot Options, and set the first boot device to CDROM. Sometimes Windows is a 'funny animal', and you have to force it to see the Restoration Disk.

After the computer has booted off of the Restoration Disk, I suggest you click on -> Repair, when the option comes up.

Clicking on Fresh Install, will wipe your harddrive of any downloaded, (or installed by you), programs and applications. It will also wipe off anything have in your My Documents folder. (My Pictures, My Music, My Videos, and documents)

Compaq presario 2500 notebook won't boot


This sounds like a weird solution, but it worked for me. I recently bought a used Presario 2500, it worked when the guy showed it to me, when I got home it didn't work two days later. I tried several tips from the web, finally I started pushing several buttons randomly. I pushed the Email (Envelope) button, and the computer powered on suddenly. Now, the Envelope button is the only button that will power the computer on. When the computer is on, that button will also bring up Outlook, but when the computer is off, that button turns it on. Let me know if this fixes it for you.

Boot-up


dot.gif How to load last known good configuration. Question: How to load last known good configuration.
Additional information: The "Last Known Good Configuration" option was first introduced in Microsoft Windows 2000 and is available in all later versions of Windows including Windows XP. This feature enables a user to load the last working version of Microsoft Windows. This is a great step to try when trying to fix issues with a computer not being able to load into Windows.
Note: Users able to open normal Windows XP mode and who wish to restore their version of Windows to an date before the last known good configuration may also wish to consider doing a system recovery in Windows. Additional information about how to do this can be found on document CH000589.
Answer: To load the last known good configuration in Windows 2000 / XP reboot the computer and as it's booting booting press and hold your "F8 Key" which should bring up the "Windows Advanced Options Menu" as shown below. Use your arrow keys to move to "Last Known Good Configuration" and press your Enter key. Trouble Getting into Windows 2000 or Advanced Options menu - If after several attempts you are unable to get into Windows 2000 or Windows XP safe mode as the computer is booting into Windows turn off your computer. When the computer is turned on the next time Windows should notice that the computer did not successfully boot and give you the safe mode screen.
Note: With some computers if you press and hold a key as the computer is booting you will get a stuck key message as the computer is booting. If this occurs instead of pressing and holding the "F8 key" tap the "F8 key" continuously until you get the startup menu.

Windows Advanced Options Menu
Please select an option: Safe Mode
Safe Mode with Networking
Safe Mode with Command Prompt
Enable Boot Logging
Enable VGA mode
Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked)
Directory Services Restore Mode (Windows domain controllers only)
Debugging Mode
Start Windows Normally
Reboot
Return to OS Choices Menu
Use the up and down arrow keys to move the highlight to your choice.
As can be seen from the above example, you should be able to highlight and press enter to load the last known good configuration. Once completed the computer should restart and attempt to load into Windows. Will running the Last Known Good Configuration delete anything? No, running the last known good configuration will restore your last good system settings and will not delete anything. The only thing you may have to reinstall programs you have recently installed because the configuration for those programs may have been lost.
