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.

Previous use window xp recently have one note book window 7 our printer is not working window 7 processing the method of driver installed


My dear friend, observe computer peripherals compatibility. If you are telling that your printer is working on windows xp that means the printer designed only for windows xp but some printer right now is supported with different operating system. Anyway download a printer driver for windows 7 if it has and install the software first and plug the printer after installing the software. Have a nice day!

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.

  1. Insert the Microsoft Windows XP CD into the computer. Note: If you have a system recovery CD or restore CD (not a Microsoft CD) these steps will likely not work for your computer.
  2. Reboot the computer with the CD and press any key when prompted to press any key to boot from the CD. Once in the Microsoft Setup menu press R to open the recovery console.
  3. Select the operating system you wish to use; if you only have Windows XP on the computer you will only have one prompt.
  4. Once prompted for the password enter the Admin password and press enter.
  5. Once at the command prompt type bootcfg /rebuild to start the rebuild process.
  6. The rebuild process will step you through a number of steps depending upon how many operating systems you have on the computer and how the computer is setup. Below is a listing of the common steps you are likely going to encounter.

    * Prompt for the identified versions of Windows installed. When you receive this prompt press Y if the bootcfg command properly identified each of the Windows operating systems installed on the computer. It is important to realize this command will only detect Windows XP, Windows 2000, and Windows NT installations.

    * Prompt to enter the load identifier. This is the name of the operating system for the boot.ini. For example, Microsoft Windows XP Home users would enter Microsoft Windows XP Home edition.

    * Prompt to Enter OS load options. When this prompt is received type /fastdetect to automatically detect the available options.

  7. Once you have completed all the available options in the rebuild and are back at the prompt type exit to reboot the computer.

Operating system not found media test failure will not reboot aspire 3680


Installing an operating system from one computer and inserting it into another computer will not work specially when they are from different manufacturers because the components in them are different.
The Windows install has to be done on the intended computer.
The media test failure error message refers to a faulty disk controller or a faulty hard disk.

About Linux fedora and XP


Without knowing more about your system, the key rule is to install XP first, then Fedora.
If that doesn't work then it's time to put more partitions on your hard drive, and install the 2 operating systems on different partitions, again, remembering that Windows XP has to be the first installed.

Digital concepts high speed storage 2-n-1 card reader can't be detected on lap top


If your sister is using a windows based operating system like 95 or 2000, you will need to install the driver for that. The OS cant read anyting until you install the driver for it. But Windows Xp does not need any driver installation. Because it all ready has bulit in. If you are using Windows Xp then the problem can be harder to find out.

If u are using Windows XP, try to install the driver just in case,
then see if it works, if not then there can be a problem with the card reader. Try using this with other friends of yours. And see if the Chip is fine or not damaged.
