NTLDR is missing is displayed when i turn on the computer


The "NTLDR is missing", error displays very shortly after the computer is first started; after the Power On Self Test (POST) is complete. Windows XP might only initially load when the NTLDR error message appears. Causes of this error message include corrupt and misconfigured files, hard drive and operating system upgrade issues, corrupt hard drive sectors, an outdated BIOS, and damaged or loose IDE cables.

How do I set up a valet m20 router with a computer that runs windows xp 2000?


Hi,

Welcome to FixYa!
If you still have the installation disc that came with the router, you can go ahead and run the disc and follow the instructions. The Cisco Connect Software will be installed when you run the supplied Setup CD or Easy Setup Key on a computer. Once Cisco Connect is installed, you can then use its features to easily manage and share your network resources.

QUICK TIP: Create a Desktop shortcut to launch Cisco Connect easier.
Windows XP

Step 1:
Click on the kb21465-001_en.png button and select All programs.

Step 2:
On the All Programs sub-menu, locate and select Cisco Connect. This should launch Cisco Connect and take you to its main screen.

kb21465-002_en_v7.png

NOTE: If you are unable to locate Cisco Connect, it may not be installed yet. Download the latest Cisco Connect setup wizard from the Cisco Support page. After downloading, click on the Cisco Connect icon to launch the installation wizard.


Hope this will help...Thank you for using Fixya...

"setup was unable to copy


See, "setup was unable to copy the file F:\vb.net \vs2008\readme.htm to your temporary directory .Please make sure that this file exits and rerun setup" its mean the file readme.htm is missing in setup folder of visual studio 2008. So, for this first you have to simply download readme.htm file http://www.microsoft.com/en-in/download/confirmation.aspx?id=5478 and download direct in your visual studio 2008 folder. Then refresh the folder of visual studio 2008 and run or doble click on setup file.
It will work. :) thank you.

I didn't install openoffice in linux5.3. Plz send article or installation process for guide.


Installation Steps The following steps assume you want to install OpenOffice on a multi-user Linux setup in an area accessible to all users on your system. This is referred to as a "network" or "multi-user" setup. Additionally you may install OpenOffice in a "single-user" setup. Consult details in the User Setup Guide (a pdf file) included with the installation archive for further details. These instructions assume you are using some X11 window manager to perform the actual installation. The setup is an X application.
  1. Make sure you are root
  2. Download the tarball from OpenOffice.org (the download can be done from any user account and then moved), and extract the tarball (.tar.gz file) to a temporary directory.
    "/tmp" is a good place for example. For the purpose of this example, I will assume you have downloaded the tarball to your /tmp directory.
  3. Open a terminal, such as xterm or konsole.
    To extract the tarball, change to the /tmp directory: cd /tmp
    and extract the tarball: "tar -zxvf [tarball name]".
  4. This should create a directory "OOo_1.1x_LinuxIntel_install".
    ("x" in this sense is a suffix to version 1.1 that will depend on the version you downloaded.)
  5. Change into this directory: "cd OOo_1.1x_LinuxIntel_install".
  6. Execute the setup script for a "network" installation.
    This is done with the following command: "./setup -net"
    This is a friendly installation process which will prompt you for a destination directory and other OpenOffice installation options. When the setup is finished, you should have a complete "network" installation installed in the destination directory you specified. Tips on installing OpenOffice.org with an NFS setup can be found on our nfs tips page. Note: It is NOT advisable to install over an existing OpenOffice installation. If you want to use the same destination as an existing version of OpenOffice, delete the contents of the existing directory!
  7. Part of the installation process includes telling OpenOffice about your Java installation. Normally this can be automatically found or you may need to supply it, or install the JRE supplied with OpenOffice if you don't already have it installed. (But see Prerequisites for more control over this.)
  8. Each user on your system should then execute the user-setup for OpenOffice.org.
    To do so, login as a regular user, then change into the program directory where you installed OpenOffice.org:
    "cd /opt/OpenOffice.org1.1.0", for example
    and execute the following command:
    "./setup"
    The user portion of setup will now execute. Tell setup to perform a Workstation installation (should copy about 1.4 MB of files to your home directory) and typically let it default to the directory it recommends for storage of the local files in your user directory.
    Example: "/home/billg/OpenOffice.org1.1.0"
    Follow the instructions and fill in your contact details. If your users have been previously running an older version of OpenOffice, they should delete the current version of ".sversionrc" before starting up the newly installed version. This will reinitialize the version information for the new setup.
  9. That's it! If you use GNOME or KDE (provided your distro keeps the KDE user files in ~/.kde2), you will find that OpenOffice.org is fully integrated in your environment. If you use a different Windowmanager, you can start OpenOffice.org by typing ~/OpenOffice.org1.1.0/soffice
  10. You may remove the install files in /tmp, if you are done installing. (thanks to Henrik Eismark for pointing this out)
Have Fun!

Need file asms to complete installation


The problem is some files in your installation cd cannot be read anymore.

Options:

1. When the error appears try to redirect the wizzard to the directory of your CD ROM and locate the file.

2. If you have back up copy of your xp cd use it to replace the xp cd you are installing when the error appears.

3. If you have a copy of your xp installer on your hard disk re direct the wizzard to that directory.
