I want to install windows XP in an older laptop that currently has Mellenium, what steps do I take? Originally had Win 98


If you are trying to upgrade just insert the XP cd while you are at the ME deskyop and follow the instructions. You will get two options Upgrade or install a fresh copy you will be prompted to restart and the XP ce will boot (if it a bootable CD) from startup this process is designed to re-format your hard drive in install a new copy of the OS. I hope this works for you.

I has delete file on memory's intermec cn3, How to recovery file ?


REPAIR YOUR OPERATING SYSTEM AS FOLLOWS
Download the operating system from this link: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=2fcde6ce-b5fb-4488-8c50-fe22559d164e&displaylang=en
or
if you have it, install it using the procedure below:Boot From the Windows XP CD
  • You must boot from your XP . Please make sure it is the same version of Windows that is currently installed on your computer (ex. XP Home cannot repair XP Professional). Place the CD in your CDROM and start your computer. Newer versions will work as well (ie. Windows XP Pro SP2 CD will work on an older WinXP Pro SP1 installation)

    you will be asked to press any key to boot from CD, so do just that.

    Step 3: System repair steps
  • A blue screen will appear and will begin loading XP setup from the CD.

    simply let the CD load without pressing F6.

    Once completed, you will be confronted with "Windows Setup". You will be asked to setup up Windows, or repair Windows with the recovery console. Choose the FIRST option, NOT recovery console.
Choose F8 to continue.
  • Next, Windows Setup will find existing Windows XP installations. You will be asked to repair an existing XP installation or install a fresh copy of Windows XP.

    If no installations are found, then you will not be given the option to repair. This may happen if the data or partition on your drive is too corrupted.

That should be it. Windows XP will appear to be installing itself for the first time, but it will retain all of your data and settings. Just follow the prompts
  • If this solution helped Never go to drive C: again. Vote for this solution and rate it

Step by step on how to format using windows 2000....ty:-)


1. Turn on the computer and insert your windows 2000 operating system disk.

2. Restart the computer, and follow the instructions to boot from a disk
a. You may have to go into the bios set up and set your boot device to the CD drive depending on
your motherboard

3. Once you have successfully booted from the CD drive, Windows will run some set up files, be patient.

4. When it is finished, the partitions that are currently installed on the hard drive are listed. Highlight each one and hit 'L' to delete.

5. Once all partitions are deleted, and you are back to the list, hit 'C' to create a new partition.

6. It will give you a formatting option for a quick or a full format. I would choose full.

7. Let it run for about an hour and come back to the windows 2000 set up screen.

8. Follow the instructions to set up windows 2000

9. Be happy

what version of windows is this? If it is before windows 7 like xp or windows 98, as examples, then it should be noted that windows xp and older operating systems are no longer supported fully by microsoft. Vista and 7 are more current operating systems.

Is the lexmark x1150 printer compatible with any computer. I have a hewlett packard


Yes, The printer drivers are determined by the operation system therefore it does not matter what brand of computer. If you have the disk that came with the printer you can load the drivers on your HP computer. If not you can go to the link below and select your operating system and download the current driver.

Can i get audio and video drivers for hp compaq dc7100


Yes you can!

You did not mention which Operating system you are using, so you have to take the last steps yourself. But easy enough...
  1. Go to HP's support page for your computer here.
  2. Select your Operating System
  3. Jump to the right driver by selecting "Driver - Audio" and "Driver - Graphics" for Windows 2000/XP
!!! HP does not provide graphic drivers for Windows Vista. In that case you have to find the manufacturer for your display and see if they offer drivers for Vista.

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

I am not able to install Windows XP on Compaq Presario CQ60-104TU


Recommend removing OLD DOS Operating system First. Then Install Windows XP. XP will NOT upgrade older systems unless it's Windows 98 and Fully Updated. However, can NO Longer do because Microsoft does NOT support any versions other than "2000/ME/XP/Vista".

Operating system


You can not upgrade to Windows 2000 server from windows XP Professional. All you can do is to purachase a copy of Windows 2000 server with as much as client license you want. And install it in your system on a sperate partition. Or you can install windows 2000 server after formatting your hard disk. This way you will loose any information on your computer. Installation instructions are available on the internet in the following link: http://www.petri.co.il/install_windows_2000.htm If you are using a simple stand alone machine, your current windows XP professional is the best choice according to my knowledge. All the best
