If you require the drivers for your system go to the manufacturing website and download them.

if you need the recovery discs ,again contact the manufacturer,they will charge you for it.

if you only need the operating system disc ,sorry you have to pay for it ,at any pc outlet.

hope this helps you

Need to restore my desk top to factory settings without a disk


If you do not have a disk then you will have to run a cleaner and remove all programs that are on your computer that are not necessary. Otherwise you would have to format the hard drive and reinstall a different operating system.

My sony vaio desk top pcg-11211L screen shows operating system not found


First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

Unistall windows 8 pro


You have to install another operating system
Restart your computer during the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup usually the Delete or F2 key

Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS then using the arrow keys scroll down to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to cd press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart

Note this will erase you operating system you will have to have an operating system disk to load it onto you hard drive or create a partition to load another operating system

Note after you have loaded the operating system you should go back and change the first boot device to failsafe or optimised defaults after windows has loaded

your computer will automatically restart it might restart 2 times one to finish the installation
the next will be because the operating system is loaded and will boot from your cd

or
Formatting a hard drive to erase its contents does not mean the files are necessarily gone forever. Using data-recovery software, someone still could retrieve sensitive data and files from your hard drive even after you've formatted it. Instead of simply formatting your hard drive, use disc-cleaning software to permanently erase its contents. Disc-cleaning programs work by repeatedly overwriting the contents of a hard drive with random data patterns, making it virtually impossible to recover the original files. Download and install the freeware program Active@ KillDisk (see Below). http://www.killdisk.com/downloadfree.htm Click the Windows "Start" button and select KillDisk from the "All Programs" list. Click the check box next to the hard drive you want to erase in the "System Local Disks" menu. Press the "Kill" button. Select the erasing method you want to use from the "Erase Method" drop-down menu. Active@ recommends using the "US DoD 5220.22-M" method. Click "Start" to begin erasing the hard drive. Download and install the freeware program Hard Drive Eraser (see Below). http://www.harddriveeraser.org/ Click the Windows "Start" button and select Hard Drive Eraser from the "All Programs" list. Check the radio button next to the hard drive you want to erase under "Select Drive to Erase." Select the erasing method you want to use from the "Shredding Scheme" drop-down menu. The developers of Hard Drive Eraser recommend "DoD 5220-22 M" Press the "Start" button to begin erasing the hard drive. Download and install Iolo DriverScrubber (see Below). Click the "Windows" Start button, "All http://www.iolo.com/ds/3/ Programs" and then the DriverScrubber program icon. Click "Wipe all contents of a drive," and then click "3.5-Inch Floppy Disk." Insert a blank floppy disk and click "Next." Restart your computer with the floppy disk still inserted. Your computer will boot directly to DriveScrubber. Press the down arrow on your keyboard to highlight the hard drive you want to format in the "Available Physical Drives" menu. Press the space bar to select the hard drive. Press "Enter" to continue. Press the down arrow to highlight "Seven Overwrites" in the "Available Data Wiping Methods" menu, and then press the space bar to select it. Press "Enter" to continue. Press "CTRL," "ALT," "Shift" and "W" at the same time to wipe the hard drive. Hope this helps.

My cousin's Desk top DELL OPTIPLEX GX280 wont boot they install Windows XP Professional SPK3 they always say Window could not start because the following file is missing or corrupted: <Windows...


Greetings I have the same computer which makes this a little easier I hope for understanding this process even on other computers it is all the same just different messages come up for each and everyone of them. Some go smooth and some just simply get complicated.
First you have to make sure that the disk you have of Windows XP Pro is legal and working it may be a bad disk. The install disk must be working properly. Also do to prior Windows installation which brought you to this point you will have to possibly use a formating program that does a complete erase of your hard drive. I use D/Ban Hardisk Eraser. Click Here
Once downloaded insert the disc into the CD or DVD drive on your computer and do a complete format it may take a while, then go ahead once that process is complete do another install making sure that you are booting from the DVD or CD Rom as your first boot device and the hard drive as the second boot option, under boot order options at the BIOS settings. Most likely this setting is probably already set to do this. If those two things are working the good Windows disk and a clean hard drive for a clean install. You should not have a problem installing the Windows Operating System software. Just follow the on screen directions.
Thanks for using FixYa! cast a vote for me if I assisted you! John

I have reinstalled windows, i need the ethernet and sound drivers for this pc. would it be possible to send a link to download them to a disk?


Download the drivers to the computer you are using. Then burn them to a CD disk.

When you go to download the drivers, Note where they are going First. Write the name of the driver file down. Then look to see where it is going to be downloaded to.

See if it is going to your My Documents folder, (Documents in Vista)
(Start > My Documents for WinXP)
It may go to a sub-folder within the My Documents folder. Downloads.
Double-click on Downloads to see.

It may go directly to your desktop screen.
Have a fresh CD disk in the optical drive. (CD/DVD drive)
Right-click on the file name when you see it.
Left-click on Copy.

Then click on Copy to CD, or the name of your optical drive.

Windows running on the Systemax computer, put the CD with the drivers in it's optical drive.
Go to My Computer.
(Start > My Computer)
Left-click on My Computer.
Now double-click on the optical drive name (Letter. Example; (D:) drive)
Then double-click on the name of the Ethernet driver file.

The Installation Wizard should come up, and lead you through installing.
(Essentially click on Next, Next, and Finish)

Restart your Systemax computer.
Go through the process again to install the Audio (Sound) file.

This is Systemax Support > Downloads,

I WANT TO ERASE MY HARD DRIVE ON MY SYSTEMAX DEST TOP COMPUTER. WHERE CAN I GET A DISK


Hello rnoble000

By "where can I get a disk", do you mean a boot disk that you can use to erase your hard disk?

If that is the case, the utility called "killdisk" will do the trick. You can find it HERE.

***** A WORD OF CAUTION *****
Be very very very sure there's nothing on the hard disk that you want to keep b4 you run this utility.

Also, if you're going to run the utility off of boot media (floppy diskette or CD-R disc), I strongly recommend you (temporarily) disconnect any other hard disks on the system in order to avoid making the mistake of erasing the wrong hard disk.


Please, let us know if this response was helpful for you or, of course, if you have more questions, etc on this topic.

Thank you
BJ
