Hi,

If I may add to the other posts...

A couple of things:
1. When you formatted, it is precluded that Windows will have to be reinstalled, were the appropriate drivers likewise reinstalled? This could be verified with the absence of any yellow or red marks in Device Manager. If there are any marking (red/yellow) then that is indicative of the drivers missing or a hardware problem;
2. Most problems could be software in nature, what specifically does the laptop fail to do after your reinstall of Windows?
3. Have you tried using the recovery CDs that came with the laptop?
4. But then again, it is also possible to have hardware issues, any message when the failure occurs? BSODs? restarting again and again?

Hope this be of additional help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

We are unable to load window xp on hard disc, before we only find the 32 GB in 80 GB hard disk ... we successfully installed the window xp, but when jumper setting done in accurate place, it shows 80 GB,...


I think this model is still an IDE type. You set the 32GB limit then jump the settings to read the full capacity of the drive. If you are trying to load XP OS from a blank drive.

First prime the hard drive, you can do low level formatting and use third party software to partition and format the drive. on FAT32 partition you can only use 8GByte to make the drive bootable. Make it primary if I remembered it correctly and active. Or use the NTFS format.

You can use also if it have the manufacturers' hard drive utilities to check the hard drive integrity. I know they have it. It also equip with zero fill to renew chain and links of the drive. Then partition, format, primary and active. Then load your OS.

Check also your CD disc integrity, scratches do make a lot of troubles. And also your cdrom/dvdrom drive.

Recovery disk


Your description tells me that you have a bad XP installation, but you do not need a recovery disk, unless you wish to use that bad installation.
Because the installation is bad, I would just delete the partition and start over again.
If you have formatted your hard disk in order to install a new Operating System (I assume Vista), one of the steps of the install detects that an existing installation of Windows does exist (XP in your case), and it asks you whether you wish to use this existing install and overwrite it, to install to a different directory, or to delete the partition and start anew.
I'm confused by your statement about trying to install Outlook after reformatting your hard drive. That cannot be done directly. First you need to install Windows (any version) before you can install either Office or Outlook.
If you're installing Windows from a CD or DVD, allow it to go through the steps until you get to the prompt for you to use the existing installation or not. Here you have the chance to delete the previous XP installation and continue with the new install, whatever that is.

For the psswords i can recomend to reset them from BIOS but to do that you must first know them. The problem with recovery disks is solvable if you boot from an XP disc and format the C: partition in NTFS file sistem and when it starts copying files to install the windows stop the installation ( F3 or press the power button for more than 4 seconds.. don't worry you will not sustain disk damage... done it myself with the same notebook for a dozen times ) After formatting the partition C: try recovery again and it will work.
NOTE: for the formatting of the partition you must set the HDD mode from AHCI to ATA witch permits the XP setup utility to "see" the HDD. If it is set in AHCI mode the setup utility for windows XP will not detect youre HDD

Vista back to xp


The best way is to simply format your hard disk drive (HDD) and re-install your XP software. Do you need instructions on how to do that, or did you expect there to be a simple shortcut with Vista? Unless you installed Vista onto a separate HDD, you're going to have to format the disk. Make sure you make back-up copies of any files you need to keep before you format, because after you do that it can't be un-done (at least not without a great deal of trouble, risking long hours of recovery and loss of most if not all of the files you're after).
