Three things you can do:
1) Change your configuration back to what it was when the PC was new. Then reinitialize the PC and change it back to the desired configuration.
2) Purchase a "retail" copy of whatever OS you want to install. Do not buy an upgrade version, as this might not work without having an os installed before installation.
3) Buy a new PC. Not much of a fix for your PC, but this option can save a lot of time and hassle.

Download windows OS from Microsoft and save it as an ISO. Boot from it and install a fresh OS. Don't forget to load the Panasonic drivers!

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.

Hi - You're right. What happens is Dell wants you to load the original disk and you didn't. You went to a different operating system. Now you have to go to the DELL SITE. No problem really if you just think of their website as another DISK.. Just look around - download what you need and put it on a thumb Drive - then transfer it like you would any other drive.
Go here and your on your way. It is a little HARDER at first - but you get all the latest updates which the original disk never had.

Reboot without disk


well, firstly having trojans on your computer shouldnt be reason enough to reinstall the whole OS especially if they arent affecting you computer to such an extent that you cant even install other applications. So what you could try and do, install or update your antivirus, Run a scan and see if that changes anything. If you're not sure what antivirus will do the job, visit http://www.avast.com/eng/download-avast-home.html and get their free tool, it allows you to run scans during start-up, so if you have an trojans that are locked into memory, during start-up they can be removed.
As for running an new installation, You could get a more recent version of the OS your using and you could run an 'Upgrade' installation, it leaves all your programs intact.

Hello Ynek,

You can purchase an original system restore disk form here http://www.restoredisks.com/index.asp, it will cost you $34.99.

If you do not want to buy a disk and you have the Windows OS that came with the laptop you can reformat the hard drive put a fresh copy of Windows and download all the system drivers for your model here: http://www.acerpanam.com/synapse/forms/AcerDrivers/Aspire%203100.pdf?CFID=1781783&CFTOKEN=73017480

Let me know how it turns out for you.

fully format the drive in which you have installed the OS and then install the fresh copy of the windows XP ....
if the same problem persists then your system might have got attacked with some virus like trojan backdoor or trojan horse ...
