I'm trying to reinstall Windowsxp on my Dell dimension 8200. After putting the CD in and it comes up on the screen I click on install Windows XP and then a window pops up that says set up can not continue...


if your using the restore or re-installation CD that came with your DELL computer just boot off the CD.
it will reformat the computer and your data will be lost if you do a fresh install off the CD.
Do not boot into windows and use the CD from there.
make sure you set the bios to boot off the CD follow the instructions on screen to reinstall windows.

I try to format my pc 1st time its operating system is windows xp i have inserted a xp cd ..... and click reboot but no change occur and i am also unable to format all other drives which donot have os...


First of all does the cd boot into the xp installer. If not the the setting in the Bios would be to boot from HardDisk first. Get into bios by the appropriate key on boot and change the boot order to cd/dvd first and then hdd. Now save settings and restart the system and the xp cd should boot up and you will be able to install xp. Be careful as you may delete all data on the hdd.

Some bios use the del or f2 key to enter, see press __ to enter setting's or bios.In that goto the boot order and change appropriately.
If xp is already installed then if other drives are not acessing saying not formatted then the easy fix would be to right click on non formatted drive and click on format. Then you will be able to access it. Do same for all other drives.

How to reinstall windows XP


If your computer boots up you should be able to reinstall with your xp os disk, click on your cd drive & choose reinstall or new install, after that you'll probably have to go to windows update & update the system, if that does'nt work you may have to go to bios settings & set the cd rom as your boot devise, restart & install that way, after your done be sure to set the bios to thier default settings.

How to use a recovery disc for presario cq 60 206us


Set your 1st boot to CD/DVD from your Bios Setting or use the hp Boot utility when you restart your computer.

Insert your Recovery disc into the CD/DVD Rom and reboot your computer. Just follow the installation wizard to install your system back to default/original settings. All of your data will be lost.

**Note
When you use the Recovery disc all the setings will be reverted back to the original settings. Back up or save your data before you use the Recovery disc.

Hope it helps.

I have Intel 845 series motherboard & I want to format my PC but when I put xp cd inside & restarts & press enter the boot doesn't start now how could i format ?


You have to change the BIOS settings to boot from your CD drive. It must have been set to boot from harddisk.
To do this you have to change the primary boot device from Harddisk to CD drive. When you restart your computer press DEL or F12 or TAB or F1(any one...Depends on your BIOS see manual or try all) to bring bios. In bios go to boot device priority and set the CD drive to boot first.
Restart your computer, it will boot from CD drive and XP setup will start.

Hope this will help...cheers:)

if you want to restore the computer to the factory settings.
restart the comptuer. immediately hold down the CONTROL key and start tapping F11 key.
Note : all of the data and software would be lost. Your computer will be restored to factory settings like a newly brought system.
IF this does work then go to bios, and make cd rom as the first boot devices, hit f10. now, hit "escape" once and select, "save" and hit enter.
Now, comptuer will be restarted.Now,start tapping space bar, It will boot from the disk.
else restart the computer and again start tapping spacebar at the startup.

I can use the recovery cd


Hello
First you need to make the computer to boot from the CD ,when the computer starts first time look for something that says to change boot order press F8 or similar.
If it's not there then look for another message that says to enter Setup press Del (or F2 etc) ,then scroll to Boot sequence or settings and change CD drive to first device then save settings and exit.
