Question about Computers & Internet
When installing my Dell with Windows XP I just frequently got an error message of Error code 4 could any one be having a solution tried putting a different cd - rom drive seen a few changes but still can't get to the solution I still can not complete my Windows XP installation
I have had the same problem when the hard drive was about to die or the ram is faulty
take ram out and clean gold edges with rubbing alcohol or a pencil eraser,
insert ram, if you have more than one chip try one at a time as one may be failing, ie (a bad spot on the chip and only stops the install when it gets to that location on the ram chip)
when you are running the install ,windows will ask you if you want to use the partitions on the drive
,say no and delete select partition ,this will format the hard drive and set a new one up,if the drive has problems it should show up then.
good luck ,and let me know how you go
