Try checking the boot sequence of your computer. Turn on the computer and press Del or F1 before the POST. You will see there an option for Boot Sequence. Make sure that the 1st Boot is set to your hard disk.

Yes expert ntldr missing


It means that your computer is missing a file that windows xp needs to run boot properly or is missing a program that your home edition xp needs. Repairing the OS or windows xp home edition by means of your xp instalation cd will do the job. Just insert your xp installation disk to your cd/dvd rom and select install windows xp home edition. Then select ( repair ), and so on let it finish repairing . Once your system rebooted, let it run without pressing enter or space bar. Just watch and let your computer do the job. This will probably solve your boot problem. But before doing all of this, please check your IDE or SATA cable and also the power cable that is connected to your hard drive. Try to unplug and plug again to ensure a good connection. If this won't work, you can proceed repairing Your windows xp installation or reinstalling a new xp operating system. Have a nice day and i hope i was in any help to you friend.

Suddenly my pc start showing that i dont have a genuine window.....


If you have recently installed Windows XP then you will need to enter the product key. You can do this by going to Start, right clicking on My Computer, and going to properties. You should be able to enter your product key found on your installation cd that came with your computer or on your computer itself perhaps.

If you have not recently installed Windows XP (within the past 30 days) then you most likely have a virus. Some good free antivirus software are AVG Free edition, avast!, or Avira.

Do a full system scan, and clean. After that you most likely will have to enter the Windows XP product key again as stated above.

The installdrv64.exe error indicates that the computer is installed with 32 bit Windows XP SP2 Operating System. Please unplug the Cellphone and re-install the PC Suite but do not install "installdrv64.exe" file as it is for 64 bit Windows XP Operating System. Now restart the computer and try connecting the Cellphone it should work now.

My xp is not booting no in safe , no regular my question is if I reload xp from scratch will i loose all my data files in my documents?


1. You can install Windows XP OS in another partition (another part of HDD). With this you will not loose anything.
2. If you want to ensure 100%, you can pull out your HDD and put to your friend's computer, open it with freind's OS and backup your files (also you can copy system files from your friend's computer to yours, it may help to repair your operating system).

How to install built in webcam in Microsoft XP Professional without a CD?


Webcams built-in to computers (I'm assuming it's a laptop) just require a driver to work (no CD necessary). You'll need to visit the website of your laptop's manufacturer and download the driver for it. After that you'll be able to use it with whatever software you need (including Windows built in software).

Will my Dell Windows XP Reinstallation disk work


Usually not,usually hard drives are built with a hidden recovery partition that stays intact even if your operating system is not,and the cd just runs off this. unless you have a complete operating system but they never give you these out .
