I had to get a new Windows XP Professional machine to replace my Old Windows XP Professional one. In addition I had to buy a plug in 3 1/2 floppy drive in order to move the files to my NEW XP Professional "C" drive. My wife has just at 100 recipes on a floppy that I better retrive or else I'm in for it. Can you help me do this please?

Bat bios checksum problems solve


Step 1:
Update ASUS BIOS b> Insert bootable floppy disk or USB drive. Copy the updated BIOS file to floppy disk or USB drive.
(Note: BIOS file and boot files should fit on a floppy disk. If the BIOS file is too large to fit with boot files, consider using the EZ Flash method described below.) Insert the motherboard support CD into optical drive. Copy AFUDOS.EXE from CD to a floppy disk or USB drive. Reboot. When the DOS prompt appears, type the following: afudos /i[name of BIOS file]For example, "p4c800b.rom" might be the name of the new BIOS file. "afudos
/ip4c800b.rom" is the command that will install it. Wait. Your monitor will display the update's progress with a series of messages: "Reading file," then "Erasing flash," then "Writing flash." The "writing flash" message will be followed with a percentage counter that tells you how far the write has proceeded. The final message will be
"Verifying flash." DO NOT switch off or reboot at any point in this process or you will ruin your motherboard. After the update is complete, the utility will return to the DOS prompt. Remove your floppy disk and reboot. Enter the BIOS Menu and load "Setup Default." Save and reboot. You're finished. b> Update Using EZ Flash Copy your new BIOS files to a floppy disk or USB drive. Reboot. When the system is at POST, press "Alt" + "F2" to enter EZ-Flash. Alternatively, on late model motherboards you may press "Delete" to enter BIOS setup, then access EZ-Flash from the "Tools" option on the navigation bar. (Select Tools > ASUS EZ Flash 2 > YES) Wait for your system to check current BIOS information. Insert your floppy or USB with the new BIOS file. Select the drive letter with the BIOS update file, then select the file. Wait for your system to check the update file. After the file check is finished, click "Yes" to update your BIOS. Wait. Let the update procedure run until it finishes. Do not switch off or reboot or you will ruin your motherboard. When the update is finished, remove the floppy or USB drive and reboot. Enter the BIOS Menu and load "Setup Default." Reboot. You're finished. b> Update Through the Internet If it isn't installed already, install the ASUS Update utility. You can either download it or use the copy on your motherboard's support CD. Close all Windows applications if any are running. Launch the ASUS Update utility from the Windows desktop by clicking "Start>Programs>ASUS>ASUSUpdate>ASUSUpdate." The "ASUS Update" main window will then appear. Select "Update BIOS" from the "Internet option" drop-down menu. Click "Next." Select the ASUS FTP site nearest you, or choose "Auto Select." Click "Next." From the FTP site, select the BIOS version that you wish to download. Click "Next." Start the update. Wait for it to complete.

All about Windows SAM file


<b>Section 1 : General Information</b><br /> As you may or may not know, all of the passwords on a Windows XP computer are stored in a SAM File. This file is located on your computer's hard drive in the directory "C:WINDOWSSystem32Config" The file's name is SAM, obviously. Now, you may be thinking, "Wow, this was incredibly easy, I just right click the file, and click send to a floppy or where ever. Well, unfortunately, it isn't that simple. I will detail the various methods of getting the SAM file in the next section.<br /> <br /> <b>Section 2 : Obtaining the SAM file</b><br /> In the previous section, I discussed where the SAM file was found. As you may have found out, when you attempt to copy this file, you get a nasty error saying something along the lines of "Access is denied. File is in use." The SAM file is in use by the system, so you cannot just go to task manager, and end the process. You need to find alternate methods of starting up the computer without using the SAM file. As far as I know, this can be done several ways. <br /> <br /> Booting the computer up into Linux using a boot CD or floppy is one method. To use this method, you will need a Linux Boot CD, and access to BIOS. If you don't have access to BIOS then consult one of the many tutorials on the web on how to crack the BIOS password. <br /> <br /> To make a bootable Linux CD, you have to find a version of Linux, which can be burned and run off a CD (To find these, consult my links, or search google). This should be relatively easy to find. Next you need some kind of burning software, which allows you to burn an image onto a CD (Consult Links, or search google). This a bit harder to find for free, but a demo works just fine. After you have these, burn the image to the CD. You now have a Linux Boot CD.<br /> <br /> Now to alter the BIOS settings, so that you can boot into Linux from the CD. Shut down your computer, and during the start up screen, you should see a notice to press F1 or F8 (Maybe a different key) to enter Boot setup. Press it. This will take you into the BIOS, however, if there is a password on the BIOS, then you have to consult an article about cracking BIOS passwords. Next go to Boot Order and change the CD drive to first. Save your changes, insert your Linux CD and exit. Let the system boot up. It should boot into Linux if you did everything correctly. Now all you have to do is insert a blank floppy, and copy the SAM file to it, since it is not in use anymore because Windows is not running. Congratulations, you now have the SAM file. Be sure to get the SYSTEM file in the same directory as well, as some passwords are encrypted with keys from within that file.<br /> <br /> Another, somewhat easier way of obtaining the files is using a MSDOS boot disk. This method doesn't require you to go looking for some software, or using special burning software. Just insert a floppy, right click on it in My Computer, and click on format floppy. When the menu appears, mark the box for "Create a MS-DOS startup boot disk", and then click the start button. After you have made your disk, restart your computer with the disk still in the drive. Make sure you BIOS settings boot from the floppy drive before the hard-drive. When the computer boots, you should se a screen similar to that I command prompt. "A:&gt;" is most likely the prompt you will see. First you need to change drives to the c drive. This is done various ways on different computers. "cd C:" or "C:" usually work. Next you will need to use the copy command to copy the SAM and SYSTEM files to other areas of the hard drive. The syntax for the copy command is as follows without the quotes : "C:Copy (file to be copied) (destination)" so the correct command which will get the file for you is "C:Copy C:WINDOWSSystem32ConfigSAM C:" This will copy the SAM file to the C drive. Replace "SAM" with "SYSTEM" to get the system file. Next you might want to rename these files. This is the syntax for the Rename command : "C:ren (file to be renamed) (new file name)". The command, which will rename your files for you, will be "C:ren C:SAM Whatever" if you saved it to the C drive. This will rename you SAM file to Whatever. Now restart your computer without the boot disk in and start up windows. Copy the files onto a floppy. Note : you may have to zip it as the SYSTEM file is pretty big. The reason these methods work, are because the SAM file is not in use when you aren't running Windows, and when u copied and renamed the file, it did not get used by windows when you logged on. Now on to the easy part, cracking the SAM file.<br /> <br /> <b>Section 3 : Cracking the SAM file</b><br /> There is a wealth of programs available that will crack the SAM file for you. You can also attempt to crack it by hand. I having neither the time nor the skill required to do this, used a program. Some programs I recommend are SAMinside, which unfortunately costs money, Proactive Windows Security Explorer, which actually can import the SAM file from memory, so you will not need to obtain it by yourself if you are doing this on your home computer, and of course CAIN and ABEL will do the trick as well. Most of these programs test about 4 to 5 million passwords per second, at least on my machine, so if the password if below 7 characters, it should be able to crack it in one day. However, if the password is 7 or more characters in length, then it will take a substantial amount of time. When I did this, my password was 7 characters in length and it took my computer just over 3 days to crack it.

Downloadable windowsxp boot disc winxp setup process


Windows XP Professional
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?displaylang=en&amp;FamilyID=55820EDB-5039-4955-BCB7-4FED408EA73F

Step 2: Run the Setup disk program to create the Setup disks

When you download the Setup disks, the download contains only one large program file. When you run the downloaded file, it extracts the files. You receive the following message:

This program creates the Setup boot disks for Windows XP. To create these disks, you need to provide 6 blank, formatted, high-density disks.

Please specify the floppy drive to copy the images to:

Type the drive letter for the floppy disk drive (this is typically drive A). After you type the floppy disk drive letter, you receive the following message:

Insert one of these disks into drive drive letter:. This disk will become the Windows XP Setup Boot Disk.

Press any key when you are ready.

When you press a key, the downloaded file starts to extract and copy the files. Continue to insert the blank disks as you are prompted to do this until all six disks are created. If the process is interrupted, you must run the downloaded program file again to create all six disks.

Make sure that you label each disk appropriately with the number that is specified by the program. You must use the disks in the correct order during the Setup process.

Step 3: Start your computer by using the first Setup disk to begin a new Windows XP installation

After you create all six disks, insert the first disk in the floppy disk drive, and then restart the computer. The computer must be configured to start from the floppy disk drive. You may have to modify the BIOS settings on your computer to do this.

The Setup process starts. Insert the other floppy disks when you are prompted. You must use the Windows XP CD-ROM to finish the Setup process.

When I turn my Gateway Profie 3 computer on, it will not boot up and displays the message: "WIndows could not start because the following files is missing or corrupt Windows^Root^\System32\ hal.dll....


Hi There,

Sounds like you're running XP bercause the hal.dll issue is almost always an XP issue. It's not the easiest thing to fix. Most often you need access to a floppy drive and floppy disc or you have to create a bootable CD that fools the computer into thinking it's a floppy with the replacement installer for hal.dll.

I recommend you read the info at the site below and decide whether to attempt the fix yourself or get assistance at your location.

Dell Dimension 5100 computer with error


There are two ways,

1, If you still can access Windows, try to disable any backup programs, virus scanning programs or disk defragment tools. Try also to run a hardware diagnostics tool to detect any errors your hard drive might have. And run chkdsk /r to detect and repair any file system structural damage.

2, If you are unable to load Windows. Then you should try to access your ntfs partitions by making a ntfs boot disk with NTFS4DOS (freeware). You can download it from http://www.geekswhoknow.com/files/ntfsinst.exe You will need a floppy disk.

After you load the bootable floppy disk onto your damaged system, select either option one (1) or option three (3). If you selected option one (1), type chkdsk /r at the command prompt, and your problem should go away after the disk has been repaired.

Note! Unfortunately there is a chance that your partition is corrupt beyond repair and all of your data is lost. In that case, you need to reformat the partition to be able to use it again.
