SOURCE: Sata drive is not recognized by os during new install

When installing XP or Vista you get the option to load third party drivers for unknown devices. I think it's F6 just after the start of any version of Windows, once you press this you will have to supply the drivers for the Windows installation. This will make Windows recognise the hdd from then on.

SOURCE: my acer aspire 4315 hangs during shutdown. windows XP OS

Hi,

This happens when there is a process still trying to work in the back end.

Try to disable most of the applications which get opened by default when windows starts.

Click on start/run/ and type msconfig. Once the window comes up click on start up tab and disable all.

Now try to reboot the system.

Also hope there is no usb device connected at the time of shut down. This would also make xp hang.

Thanks

SOURCE: i installed a new hard drive, after reinstalling

Hi. I don't know if you solved this problem yet, but I thought I might mention that if you are installing windows from a retail disk, you need to install the sata driver when setup ask if you need to install a third party driver. It has to be downloaded and unzipped to a floppy. I used a USB floppy drive for my wifes Gateway M465E and setup continued flawlessly. Prior to doing that I was about to throw it against the wall. Just thought I would mention this solution.

SOURCE: MY COMPUTER SHUTDOWN WHILE IT HAS A 60%REMAINING

If the Computer restarts randomly, then the issue might be due to any damaged Operating System Files.
But, if the Computer shuts down randomly, it is due to the Processor.
All the Processors will be designed in such a way that, if there is any overheating issues, the Computer will shut down randomly.
The overheating might occur due to the malfunction of the Cooling Fan in the Computer.
As this is a overheating issue, it would be better to get the Unit examined at the Service Center.
Replacing the Cooling Fan in the Computer should resolve the issue.

You will need to buy another licensed copy of windows 8 if you didn't burn the recovery disks while the system was operational.

You might also be able to buy the recovery disks from gateway them-self. Contact gateway customer support for more information. Make sure you have the make and model number for your machine and be SURE they have the correct information or you might get a disk for another system.

How to fix unexpected shutdown due to Blue screen problem of Pavilion HDX9494NR


See if the Check disk utility will solve your problem. To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc ora operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot fromit. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with whiteletters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice thepercentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run tocompletion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows.Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents,music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair whenthe options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recoveryconsole and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.

So was this the issue then? You can run the Windows Vista Upgrade Advisor to see if there are any compatibility issues that you may be having with hardware or software that would prevent an upgrade to Windows Vista.

I hope this helps.

Did you upgrade or totally reload the os from scratch? Usually improper shut down sequences are caused by corrupted os.
