You may try running a diagnostic on your hard drive to make sure it is in good working condition. Most Dell computers have a built-in diagnostic program, if you press F12 at boot, you should be able to access that.

FUJITSU MHT2060B-SATA hard drive driver wanted


Get the drivers from the motherboard homepage, extract the file at a floppy or USB, and start WinXP installation from your cd. At the begining at the bottom line is a message like "for ... drivers press F6 to install" Press F6 and after sometime the will prompt you to provide the drivers from the floppy. In the WinXP sp3 the generic SATA drivers are already on the installation cd.

What are the basic drivers i need to install to my computer?


Video, audio, system board (esp. if not in WinXP's release set), about 300 patches from Microsoft Update on those even after the SP3 update, plus anything special you want to use like a particular mouse driver (Logitech, say) or webcam. You'll want some optical drive utilities too, so just install a Nero suite.

WinXP is deprecated by M'soft, so if you're talking about installing an OS you might want to pick Ubuntu or something.

Tis about REALTEK blahblah...i cannot see the volume tray icon


Hi,
As you said you have formatted Drive C:, and installed XP SP3 and back again XP SP2.
Why don't you try formating the whole drive and reinstalling fresh Win XP SP2 and always choose NTFS partition only because all the features are supported in this partition.

HP Pavillion dv6121tx 15.4" notebook problem with DVD


Hi

It sounds like a hardware fault on the drive itself. The laser and focussing mechanisms are different for CDs and DVDs. The fact that the drive can read DVDs fine suggests that the laser and lenses can no longer focus correctly to deal with CDs.

Replacement of the drive would be the only fix, although you might find it a lot easier to buy an external USB DVD drive.

Winxp with serv pak 3 crashes when installing konica minolta pagepro 1350w


It must be because the software is not compatible with SP3; I've seen this a few times already. Does the Dell have SP3 installed? If not, I dare say that is the issue.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya.
