Trying to reinstall win xp but when i get to installing windows, the computer freezes


Hi juicy2024,


2 reasons why your PC got stuck during Windows installation are your installation CD and DVDROM/CDROM.
Please make sure that your Optical Drive is working properly and your installation CD has no scratches.

Hope this helps you a lot.

Thank you for using FixYa!

I want window vista BUT I DONT KNOW HOW CAN I DO THIS


Hi there !

So tell me, what do you want to do with your computer? Do your computer crash and need to reinstall your Windows Vista operating system? Or you want to upgrade your operating system from Windows XP to Windows Vista.

For reinstalling Windows Vista, is it the same procedure when reinstalling Windows XP and Windows 7. Here is the link on how to reinstall operating system http://www.fixya.com/support/r7410371-reinstall_windows_xp_or_installing_clean. For Windows Vista, here is the procedure on how to reinstall Windows Vista.

1. Just put the installer CD into the CDROM Drive and open your computer
.
2. If message appear to press any key to boot from CD. Press any key to go to Windows Set up.

3. From there, just follow the installation procedure and put CD key if prompted and it will install itself the whole process. It will reboot for 3 times and don't press anykey when this happen. it will be finished within 20 mins.

For upgrading from Windows XP to Windows Vista, remember that all your files and softwares will be remove except for the hardware drivers. But not all the hardware drivers will be 100% working because upgrading the operating system will make your drivers outdated or not compatible with Windows Vista. If some drivers not working, just install the hardware drivers compatible with Windows Vista.

Here is the procedure.

1. Do not put the Windows Vista installer CD yet into the CDROM drive.

2. Open your computer and let it run to Windows XP program until is is finished to load your Windows settings.

3. Now insert your Windows Vista installer CD to the CDROM drive, it will pop up the upgrade installation wizard and just choose the upgrade installation. It will run the upgrading installation and just follow the instruction and it will be finish with 20 mins.

I hope this will help you and thank you for using FixYa !

Hi there !

Yes, it can be repair and all you need in Windows XP installer CD to repair your operating system and all your information will be brought back.

1. If you have the Windows XP installer CD, put in the CDROM drive and turn on your computer and try to make sure that it will boot up in your CDROM drive. A message will display " press any key to boot to CD" and press any key.

2. After it will go to Windows XP set up and below instruction will appear:

a. To set up Windows XP now, press Enter
b. To repair Windows XP installation using recovery console, press R
c. To quit set up without installing Windows XP, press F3

Since you want to repair it, you should press R to repair and it will not delete your files on that partition.

3. After that just go on through the process and after repairing it will reboot itself and run Windows XP.

I hope it helps you. Good Luck and Thank you for using FixYa !

Hi I am running Windows Vista SP2 on an HP Compaq laptop and trying to install drivers and then software for Canon Printer IP4600. Have tried from CD Rom, Windows update with printer attached and Canon's...


Try updating drivers on device manager.
Plug in your printer - right click computer (on start menu) - click properties - on the next screen click device manager - on the next screen there should be a usb device with a yellow question mark - right click on the question mark - select update driver software - ensure the cdrom supplied by canon is in the cdrom drive.
The computer should scan the cdrom for the applicable drivers and automatically install them.

Cdrw/dvdrw won't recognize or read cd. I replace original cdrom and it works fine. Worked when first installed?!?!


Since you've already replaced the cdrom, the next thing you need to do is delete this registry files,..

This fix came from microsoft if your optical drive can't read or recognize discs,.

if your using windows vista or windows 7, click on the start button then in the start search box type in REGEDIT,

If your using windows xp click on the run icon then
type REGEDIT.


After that look for this,

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

There can be many instances of the registry subkey that is mentioned in step 2. You must make sure that you are in the appropriate registry subkey before modifying the UpperFilters and the LowerFilters values. To verify that you are in the appropriate registry subkey, make sure that the Default data value is DVD/CD-ROM and the Class data value is CDROM.
In the right pane, right-click UpperFilters, and then click Delete.
Click Yes to confirm the removal of the UpperFilters registry entry.
In the right pane, right-click LowerFilters, and then click Delete.
Click Yes to confirm the removal of the LowerFilters registry entry.
Then after that go to device manager, look for your cdrom device, you can easily find it,.

If your using windows vista or seven just right click
on the computer icon then properties,
then on the top right corner of the window you will see device manager, click it, then look for the
cdrom, click the cdrom icon, a drop down box will come up, click on the item that came up, then right click it, click on uninstall,

Do the same thing in xp, but to get to device manager right click on my computer, then do the same process.

after that restart the computer and it will automatically restart.

If this one still doesn't work, update the firmware of your
cd rom which you can get from dell's support website, after that if all else fails,
back all your files and then reinstall the operating system.

Hope this helps!

Can't boot with Cd-Rom unable to install windows XP


Well, maybe I can try, thus in your bios setting you can boot using usb cdrom? Or maybe its time to change your cdrom drive already. If you can borrow a good spare cdrom. Take this in for the meantime in exchange for your installed cdrom. Maybe your cdrom drive is faulty. Then if this is ok, it is now easy for you to get on.

Second option, you can take out your harddrive prime it, then have a partition (say d:\) with a copy of full copy of xp installer, and other important installer just have it foldered. Then I assume you can boot using a floppy drive with win98 rescue disk. After booting goto harddrive partition with xp installer. then click setup and set it up in c:\ . Then your go other software, installed it manually.

I do this coz it much faster to installed using harddrive and also it is only in xp.

Hope this helps. comments if I miss something.

Switching from vista to xp for the acer aspire 5315-2153


You need to download and burn the files on a CD or put on a Pin drive.

After installing windows XP, you will need to install all the XP drivers for that model.

Go to the manufacturers website, download all the chipset, bios,audio,network drivers, and video drivers they have for XP and Install them after installing windows XP.

Installing XP requires you to boot from the install CD, partition the Hard drive in the windows install. Then install, It will reboot after it finishes and restart, go into more installing and when its done, you should be able to go into windows wher you are going to start installing all those drivers.

Start with the Mother board chipsets and then the video , the audio and network.

After you get all those, run windows updates to get everything up to date. Then you can start installing other software like MS office and whatever else.
