If I install a new motherboard that costs about $80, will I be able to use the windows XP software that came with my emachine? O r do I have to also buy a windows XP home edition CD and install it? I have tried just about everything to this computer, unhooking peripherals, making a boot disk, trying my recovery disc CD, bought a new power supply, new CPU celeron 2.3, nothing makes it work so fwr. The monitor works with another computer, but no pic on the emachine computer. The emachine t2385 just lights the power on light, that's all.
If the problem is in the motherboard, where do I go from here?
Thanks in advance!.....................clint
1: The cooling fans come on in the correct manner.
2: The "Power Light" comes on and just stays lit. No blinking!
3: The CD Drive at the top does open and close, do not know if it reads anything or not.
That is all, not anything else happens! I has an imperial motherboard #20021218 with a 2.3 celeron cpu. What is a good swap for the motherboard? Is this motherboard possibly fixed? I don't see any "leaking' capacitors or any burnt spots on the board. Thanks!

Why are wanting to clone your hard drive to another on when all you need to do is install Windows 7 directly onto the new hard drive? Are you wanting to save all your settings and data before you install Win 7 over the top of XP?
this are the things that will help you upgrade your laptop.
first of all replace the ram memory with a higher configuration.then get your hard disk reformat by reinstalling fresh operating system like windows xp-sp2 or windows vista.install all the latest updates and drivers and its done.

Whenever you try to upgrade motherboard and CPU's with Windows XP, you're probably going to have to format your drive and re-install XP. When you originally install XP it detects the motherboard and IDE controlers for your hard drives and installs the drivers needed but it doesn't install all drivers for motherborads and IDE controlers. When you swap out motherboards and the system tries to fire it doesn't have drivers available for the new motherboard and can't complete the boot into windows. Every once in a while you get luck and the new and old motherboard can use the same drivers but this is very rare. So when upgrading motherboards plan on backing up your hard drive of all files you need to keep and being prepared to format and re-install windows.
There is not way to install a windows xp os without SATA drivers. If you don't want to use the floppy disk to make the os recognize the HDD, you can integrate the drivers in the Windows Xp installation Cd, using software like Nlite.
Another solution is to use a IDE HDD, the old kind with the 80 wire ribbon cable.
Hi, Unfortunately any of Bernina's software that is older than Version 5 , will not work with Vista. There are some software patches available on the berninausa.com web site, but there is nothing out there that will help you if you have any Version 4 software or older. Microsoft really through out a curve ball to everyone with VISTA as there is a lot of software out there that will not work in that operating system. Actually the lowest cost solution would be to get a nice used computer that runs Windows XP. You do not need a super fast, state of the art computer to run embroidery programs. I bought a nice used computer at a yard sale for $10.00 and it even came with the XP install disk. I replaced the hard drive just because they do wear out after a few years, installed XP in it and that computer is now in my wife's sewing room and it is only used for her embroidery work. You might have a computer repair shop in your area where you can buy an older XP computer that has been reconditioned. The few dollars you would spend to get an older computer would cost you far less than buying new Bernina Version 5 software. It is EXPENSIVE! Good luck...bushvideo
here is the link for the driver download for the i250 for xp (hope you didn't mean you threw the printer itself away)
Here is the link for the bjc 80 scanning driver for xp;
but unfortunately canon does not seem to have a driver for printing in xp for the bjc80, it doesn't seem to be compatible - contact canon and they might have plans to release an xp driver
this link has dos drivers for the bcj80;
Hope this helps - other option would be to go back to windows me/2000 or get an xp capable printer - if you get a new one make sure it can deal with windows vista as well in case you upgrade in the future :)
The different hardware components on the new motherboard require different drivers that what are already loaded on your installation of Windows. My guess is something requires a driver that the base Windows driver install will not cover and as a result errors out and restarts. I too have tried this trick on several occasions, sometimes it work and sometimes it doesn?t; however, the key is similar hardware.
My guess would be IDE controller, video, chipset or perhaps USB 2.0 is causing your problem. What you can do perhaps is boot into Windows safe mode and try to figure out what is causing the problem. In the long run it may save time and aggravation by just reinstalling Windows ??
Let us know how it turns out.
