How many times have you cleaned your system? It's possible that there's too much dust inside which is blocking the functionality of the internal components, cpu overheating problem, graphics card problem, or clogging/short circuits, hard disk failure, etc.. etc.. But I would suggest you to disassemble the cpu and disconnect and remove all the components, disassemble it completely, do some cleaning using blower, brush, etc..

Clean everything including the motherboard, power supply, cd-rom etc.. and blow away all the dusts. After they are cleaned, reassemble it try again. Possibly this will help you.

But if this doesn't work for you.. You'll need to replace the parts one after another while you keep testing and it'll will cost you more than the price of a new unbranded/branded advanced computer. Also it'll be hard to find most of the parts since most old computer/electronic spares are no longer available in the market.

If it's working after the cleaning, no problem, you can still use it even if it's old, but if not, I don't recommend getting it repaired.

I wish you good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Hi,
Update your BIOS if your still face the same problem, then Sorry to say this but you have to get your system serviced. Because it seems that there is problem with the Processor slot, motherboard is not able to catch the processor. A personal examination will reveal the exact cause for the same..
Thanks...

Except_handler4_common msvcrt.dll xp download


Option (1)
To resolve this issue, use the Windows XP Recovery Console to replace the Msvcrt.dll file with the original version. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Insert your Windows XP CD-ROM into the computer's CD-ROM drive or DVD-ROM drive, and then restart your computer from the CD-ROM.

    NOTE: Some computers may require that you modify the basic input/output system (BIOS) settings before you can start the computer from a CD-ROM. For information about how to modify BIOS, see your computer documentation.
  2. At the Welcome to Setup screen, press R to start the Recovery Console.
  3. Press the number key that corresponds to the installation that you want to repair, and then press ENTER.
  4. Type the Administrator password, and then press ENTER.
  5. With the Windows XP CD-ROM still in the CD-ROM drive or DVD-ROM drive, type the following commands, pressing ENTER after each command:
    • cd system32
    • ren msvcrt.dll msvcrt.old
    • CD-ROM_or_DVD-ROM_Drive_Letter:
    • cd \i386
    • expand msvcrt.dl_ BootDriveLetter:\windows\system32
    • exit
    NOTE: BootDriveLetter refers to the drive letter of the boot drive. In other words, it refers to the drive where the Windows folder is located, which is probably drive C. CD-ROM_or_DVD-ROM_Drive_Letter refers to the drive letter of the CD-ROM or the drive letter of the DVD-ROM drive. The CD-ROM drive or the DVD-ROM drive are frequently located in drive D.

My new samsung sm348 is not detected


It sounds like it might have the same buss address as you hard drive, making the hard drive inaccessable to boot. Check the documentation for the sm348 there should be information on changing the address jumper. Some PCs the cable determines the drive address, some you have to set it on the device you are installing.

AVG 7 detecdted Virus Hurri on partition table. How do I remove ?


You will need to fix the master boot record with the Windows XP Recovery Console. To do this, you will need a Windows XP install CD.

Here are the steps to use the recovery console:

To run the Recovery Console from the Windows XP startup disks or the Windows XP CD-ROM, follow these steps:
  1. Insert the Windows XP startup disk into the floppy disk drive, or insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, and then restart the computer.

    Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD-ROM drive if you are prompted.
  2. When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console.
  3. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you must access from the Recovery Console.
  4. When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.
  5. At the command prompt, type the appropriate commands to diagnose and repair your Windows XP installation.

In this instance, the correct commands are:

c:\fixmbr
c:\fixboot
The type exit after finishing then remove the Original OS CD.
The machine will reboot properly.

This will fix your boot sector

And All should be well

DO NOT TURN OFF YOUR COMPUTER BEFORE THIS PROCESS COMPLETE


win xp is not supported by Microsoft any more and hasn't been for a number of years
That means that any blips that would normally be corrected during installation is not longer happeneing
Win 7 also is no longer being supported and there are already problems occurring in that system
many applications that have drivers in win xp no longer have the drivers so printers and other PNP units will not operate
Time to move up to win 10

Boot cd-rom type:cd-rom/non-emulation booting


No, it's because Microsoft changed the way boot CDs work with SP2. You need an old CD (Windows XP SP1). I had the same problem here, notebook without floppy, it won't boot from the newer XP version CDs (SP2 or SP3) - but an old SP1 CD works!
(Those were all original Microsoft CDs, and the SP2 / SP3 CDs boot just fine on several other PCs I tested. It's just that some old hardware has a problem with the boot mode used on newer Windows CDs.)
