Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have built a new computer from scratch and when I did I bought Windows XP Pro 64bit and after I decided I would upgrade my motherboard and when I did I started up the computer again and when it came up I could see the HHD and DVD/CD-ROM in the BIOS but after I exited and started up the computer it should show what HHD you have installed and it showed no HHD installed. Also to add on to that when it starts it says that someone is already logged in as me and I am not able to log in as the admin or owner. If you need info about my computer please ask. Thanks for the help.

Hi 0092352

Check to see if the connection of your hd to the motherboard is correct should be primary no slave
DVD/CD rom should be secondary and no slave.
Boot the bios by pressing del to check if the hd is and dvd is shown.

How can change Vostro 3300 32bit- 64bit


You'll have to reload from scratch (not upgrade) a 64-bit operating system, such as Windows 7. Make sure the reason you think you need 64 bits is worth the time and effort of:
1. Saving ALL your Data Files before you start, perhaps to an external HDD, a USB flash drive or a network drive.
2. Saving backups of all your applications -- electronic banking, Email, Address books, etc. (Outlook data files)
3. Reformatting and reloading a new OS (you'll probably have to buy it).
4. Reloading all your applications (make sure you have ************, serial numbers, etc.

Unless you have a new mission-critical app that requires a 64-bit OS, I'm not sure you'll be happy with the outcome. The PC probably won't perform any better than it does now.

How to update the bios?


Hi, you need to download this:

ASUS Update V7.18.03 for Windows XP 32bit/XP 64bit/Vista 32bit/Vista 64bit/7 32bit/7 64bit

From here:

http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/AMD_AM3/M4A78LTM_LE/#download

You may need to unzip the file before installation

Its the easyest way to upgrade the bios.

Here is a small youtube video that shows you how:

Wound up reformatting the hard drive and installed Windows XP Pro 64-bit. But am missing correct drivers for the modem. It does not even show up in device manager


Hi activebiz,
I see you re-installed Windows on the machine with Win XP Pro 64bit but you are having issue with the driver as mentioned.
If I may ask before you installed win XP 64bit did you have win XP 32bit?
If so then try downloading a driver for a 64bit version to make the Modem driver work, having an Incorrect version of the driver will really not show up in device manager, and make sure the driver you are downloading is the correct driver.
You did not mentioned the Brand of the Machine or Motherboard that you have and the modem that you need a driver for is that a built in Modem on the Motherboard or is that a modem external provided by your Internet Provider.

Windows XP Upgrade


completely different operating systems actually... as far as i know that upgrade would not be possible... a full install would be the way to go... back up all your data first.

the beauty of 64 bit tho is it basically allows you to add unlimited memory to your computer.
