XP will not install "Setup


That is because it was designed for Vista not the obsolete XP. There are no hard drive drivers suitable in XP.
Re install Vista or install Win7.
Hope that helps.

I HAVE A COMPAQ HP DX6120 AND I DON'T KNOW HOW TO OPEN THE BIOS . I NEED TO FORMATE MY COMPUTER AND I HAVEN'T CD BACK UP THANKS FOR YOUR HELP


You can get into the BIOS using the F2 or the DEL button. You need to keep tapping it as soon as you turn the computer on.

To Format the computer you would need an Operating System Disk. Like the windows XP /Vista /Windows 7 disk...

You need to boot from any of these disks and then you will be able to format the computer.

How to: Dual Boot system with XP & Vista on separate hard drives


If XP where your primary OS this would not be a problem. Since Vista is the Primary you are going to need to get a boot loader that will start before either OS does and use that to choose OS at bootup.

Hi, my computer will not boot giving a bootmgr is missing error. i have a hi-grade pc with a recovery partition. Can I fix it using it ??


Hi,
No you can't recover a system using another recovery partition from another computer as the internal components maybe different.
Have you tried to go into the BIOS and resetting the boot order?
If you have not then to get into the BIOS either hit Esc or Del as the computer starts up, enter the BIOS and look for Boot or Boot Options and set the hard drive as the first boot device, hit F10, save the changes and exit.
The computer will restart and hopefully boot from the HDD.
If you have done all this and the HDD is set to boot first then the operating system is corrupt and you will need to recover the system.

Hope this helps, regards.

BIOS issue or ? Rebooting PC into BIOS on ASUS A7V8X-X ACPI BIOS Revision 1003, 13.2.2003


If you lose time and day, means the little battery on your motherboard is done. Get a new one, replace it, should be fine then. As far as booting into BIOS, there should be a boot option, and you can boot into a hard disk, a usb or a cd rom drive. Of course in this case, choose the hard disk that has your operation system on it.

Missing or corrupt hal.dll file, so can't boot the hard drive


Hey,

Please use the recovery discs or windows installation cd.

To either perform a full system restore with the recovery discs.
Or to perform a repair installation with the windows installation cd.

Boot the computer using the XP CD. You may need to change the boot order in the system BIOS so the CD boots before the hard drive. Check your system documentation for steps to access the BIOS and change the boot order.
When you see the "Welcome To Setup" screen, you will see the options below
This portion of the Setup program prepares Microsoft
Windows XP to run on your computer:
To setup Windows XP now, press ENTER.
To repair a Windows XP installation using Recovery Console, press R.
To quit Setup without installing Windows XP, press F3.
Press Enter to start the Windows Setup. do not choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the Recovery Console, press R", (you Do Not want to load Recovery Console). I repeat, do not choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the Recovery Console, press R".
Accept the License Agreement and Windows will search for existing Windows installations.
Select the XP installation you want to repair from the list and press R to start the repair. If Repair is not one of the options, END setup.
Setup will copy the necessary files to the hard drive and reboot. Do not press any key to boot from CD when the message appears. Setup will continue as if it were doing a clean install, but your applications and settings will remain intact.

Thanks and good luck.

I have just built my first desktop PC using an ASUS M2N32-SLI Delux Wireless Edition Motherboard. Unfortunately the Motherboard came without the support CD containing drivers etc. I do have the user guide...


1. Do I in fact need the support CD?

You dont need the support cd, although you might have to update your drivers for your sound card, network card, or wireless card (IF they dont work) from the asus website http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us&model=M2N32-SLI%20Deluxe

2. Can I go straight to installing the operating system and bybass the support CD?

Yes you can. Go into the BIOS and change the boot option to boot from cd first and this will boot from your windows vista cd.

3. Is this system compatible with this Motherboard?

Yes it is compatible with your motherboard.

Bios setting problem


This happens because Windows is corrupted.

You need to start the computer with a windows install disk, or a factory recovery disk inside to reinstall the system.

Get a windows install disk and reinstall the system.

If you use the norton ghost to copy the image back?

try turning the automatic restart on system failure off
tap f8 during startup so the advanced start menu comes up and select disable automatic restart on system failure.

Ntldr is missing


seems your MBR is damage. but you can repair it if only you can boot in windows cd and entering in 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 this commands one at a time.

FIXMBR  C:
FIXBOOT  C:
COPY [CDDRIVE]:\I386\NTLDR  C:\
COPY [CDDRIVE]:\I386\NTDETECT.COM  C:\
BOOTCFG  /rebuild


6.    To exit the Recovery Console and restart the computer, type exit at the command prompt, and then press ENTER.

no warranty...you use on your own risk :)
