Where did you get the Windows Installation disk? It may be a counterfeit, Illegal, bootleg copy. Have you ever used it before?

Hard disk sector problems


Yes, and maybe.

How's that for a clear, concise answer?

When using the Restoration Disk, or a fresh new Installation Disk; if there are bad sectors you will be advised that CHKDSK, is about to run. (Or instructed to use CHecKDiSK, and how)

CHKDSK will then see if there are good sectors that it can move info over to, OR; you will be advised that you have an irreparable hard disk. (Harddrive)

Reformatting is using the Restoration Disk, or Full Installation disk; and when asked choose Full Install.
(Destructive Installation)

Do NOT click on Format in ANY other way.

USE the Restoration Disk, or Full Installation disk.

(Otherwise you will wipe the harddrive clean, and you do NOT want to do this)

Sata harddrive installation


from what i know, consensus of hard disks are plug and play meaning they won't need a driver to be installed because it automatically installs during startup.

Can i use windows xp installation disk for a dell pc on a emachines pc


Not likely, especially if it says that it's an OEM disk. Those are made especially for particular PCs.
If your PC boots without the disk, you may be able to then insert and run the installation if you can find it on the disk.

You could find a standard XP disk online for cheap, or I recommend to check to see if your PC will run Win7, you will be happier.

I cant download op cd


If the new hard disk is a SATA hard disl then the problem is that XPinstallation CD does not have a SATA driver, unless you have a SATA drive on adisk etc. and can install the driver when XP asks for a hard drive driver then,XP cannot detect the hard disk and therefore won't install XP.The FIX.Go into the BIOS anddisable the SATA drive (enable IDE emulation), this will make XP think it is aIDE/PATA hard disk. Then you can install XP normally. When Windows hasbeen installed then install all the device drivers (including the SATA driver),then shut down and boot up and got into the BIOS and enable the SATA drive.http://www.fixya.com/support/r4335035-installing_windows_xp_sata_hard_drive

Nvidia boot agent ?


I would state use the Restoration Disk, and perform a Repair. (Non-Destructive Installation)
This will repair the Nvidia settings for YOUR computer.

But more than likely Acer did not provide a Restoration Disk, and it is my understanding it may be hard to get a hold of. (Acer Support)

This makes me think you have installed a new Nvidia graphics card, since specifications indicate it comes with Integrated Graphics that is Nvidia GeForce 7050.

http://reviews.cnet.com/desktops/acer-aspire-m1641-u1521a/4507-3118_7-33234219.html

{Integrated Graphics is also referred as OnBoard Graphics.
ON the motherBOARD. The graphics chipset (GPU) is soldered to the motherboard, and Not to a removable graphics adapter card,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GPU

IF SO, the software (Installation disk) is installed FIRST, then the graphics card is physically installed.

IF not you get a driver conflict.

When a device is installed on a computer, (Such as a graphics card), Windows 'breaks it's neck' to find matching suitable drivers.

If THE drivers are not there, Windows will match up one of it's THOUSANDS of generic drivers.
This won't do.

Windows: "Which drivers do I use? These or THESE?"

[Drivers are small pieces of software, that allow the Operating System to 'communicate' with a device ]

Is this what you did? Install the graphics card, THEN use the graphics card's installation disk?

Post back in a Comment.

I was given a Compaq d530 cmt and it won't boot says non-system disk or disk error hoe can I install unbunto on it as a spare


Download Ubunto onto a disc (as an image) and then you will need to boot to the disc in order to begin the installation process. With HP computers (including Compaqs), right after the computer is turned on, press F12 to bring up the units boot menu. Select the optical drive and then start the installation.

Black screen + mouse cursor, no access to explorer.


Windows needs to be reinstalled or repaired. Obtain a XP or Vista repair or installation disk (possibly borrow from a friend?) and run a repair installation. If you have another computer running windows you can make an installation disk from that computer.
