Tip

Computer reads errors upon starting it up?


If you are receiving error codes on your computer most likely thye hard drive has a bad sector. Hard drives last approxamately 5 to 10 years depending on useage. If shut down improperly by powering off the power button the drive will go bad. This cause is the number one problem destrying a hard drive. No need to pull your heair out. Just purchase a new drive and not a rebuilt. Rebuilts do not have a warranty as a new one does and rebuilts do go out wiy=thin months most of the time. The BIOS in your computer is set up to accept any Windows disc for your programming. Here is $10 to $20. After installing the NEW hard drive you simply install the disc and turn on the computer. You will follow simple instructions to get you computer running again. If you love your old computer you will save money repairing it instead of purchasing a new one instead

Gateway zx4351 operating system missing


When did you get this Gateway? Where did you get it? I assume you mean that it has no OS, cause Gateway does NOT make an operating System. Need more details, please!

I have a Optiplex Gx260 which has only 800mb of memory left. I have removed all unused programes but it seems that the hard drive capacity is being taken up by things which arn't clearly identifyable.I...


One drive should be set as master, (the bootable system drive) and the extra drive as slave. Disc management should be able to initialise it then and format as required.
If you install iobit.com and asc-setup, (it is free ware) run the regisrty utility followed by disc cleaner, that will show you where your space has gone. All useful stuff can be stored on the slave disc.
Hope that helps.

Software disc


You need your original installation disc(s), or start up the machine and hold down the f8 key and then, 1st boot on the last known good.
2nd, reboot holding down the f8 key and then try the restore method. Most machines have a 4 to 10 gig partitioned on the C drive which holds your restore partition. Else, if you have the orginal OS disc, put it in your cd reader, it will come up with the start up screen for installation. when you get to the install window say OK, then when the window comes up you should have a choice of intalling new or repairing the hard drive ... repair the hard is the correct choice. This should work if there isn't a hard drive problem, or your hit with a virus, or that the hard drive has a bad boot mbr.

I have just purchased a HP 2133 mini-note. On first installation, installation failed and now it just loops and wont do anything. How can I facilitate first installtion bearing in mind there are no disks...


The majority of these PCs have a recovery partition on the internal hard drive, here is the instructions for using it.
Recovering information using Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE)
Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE) can perform a recovery from either an optional external hard
drive or from recovery discs.
CAUTION: Using Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE) will completely erase hard drive contents
and reformat the hard drive. All files you have created and any software installed on the computer will
be permanently removed. When reformatting is complete, the recovery process will restore the operating
system, as well as the drivers, software, and utilities from the backup used for recovery.
To initiate recovery using WinRE, follow these steps:
NOTE: This process will take several minutes.
1. If possible, back up all personal files.
2. Restart the computer, and then press f8 before the Windows operating system loads.
3. Select Repair your computer.
NOTE: The "Repair your computer" option is displayed only if the WinRE partition is intact. If the
option is not displayed, refer to “Recovering information using a Windows Vista operating system
DVD (purchased separately).”
4. Follow the on-screen instructions.
5. Click Next.
6. Select your user name, type your password (if applicable), and then click OK.
7. If you are using recovery discs, insert the last disc of the recovery disc backup set.
NOTE: Inserting the last disc of the backup set confirms the presence of a valid backup. If you
insert any other disc, the backup will not be recognized.
– or –
If you are using an optional external hard drive, connect it to the computer.
8. Click Windows Complete PC Restore.
9. Follow the on-screen instructions.

this is getting long , so ill will post more steps in comment.....
