How can i install windows xp proffessional?


You will need to make sure you have all the mother board drivers for that system that are compatible for windows xp. check your manufacturers web site or check on your motherboard driver cd if it came with your computer. You will need a win xp cd and also its Product key number.
Once you have these you will need to go into bios and make sure the computer is set to boot from cd/dvd rom - place disc in drive reboot computer -- follow the windows xp installation prompts and instructions

I hope this helps Andrew A

I have a NEC VY16F/RF-R notebook. I want to install windows xp in my laptop but can't do it. Please give me a instruction to install xp in my laptop.


One can no longer purchase a legal copy of Windows XP from any computer-store -- XP can only be purchased as part of buying a complete computer system from an authorized "system-builder", i.e., any small owner/operator computer-store.

Once you have purchased the XP CD-ROM, insert it into the CD-ROM drive in the NEC computer. The CD should "auto-start" and offer to install Windows XP. If not, then reboot the NEC, and choose to boot from the CD-ROM device, rather than your 'C:' drive.

Hi. Keep on tapping F12 key while computer is booting up. It should gives you boot options. Select the DVD Rom drive and make sure that the bootable disk is inserted to the DVD drive.

How to reset the bios password for nec versa m350.. pls help!!! i want to reinstall my OS but i can't access the bios setup to change the settings to boot from cd rom upon startup. there is a bios...


Restart the computer, and read the first message (white text on a black background), hoping that it says something like "press F1 to enter BIOS setup, press F12 to select boot priority".

If it does, press F12, and then select the CD-ROM device as the "bootable" device.

How to reformat back to windows vista ?


You need a windows Vista disc. Insert the disc and follow the prompts. I would format the hard drive instead of upgrading do a new install. The best way would be to go into your bios and make sure the boot device order has the cd-rom booting before the hard drive. Then put the disc in and start the computer, when it says press any key to boot from cd hit any key and let it load and then follow the prompts to install.

Nec versa want to downgrade from vista to xp but booting from xp cd it does not detect harddrive, why? what can I do about it?


Hi,

Sometimes booting from XP disk wont detect your hard disk,the problem is because the IDE driver which is needed for the identification of the hard disks are not at all avaible with the XP CD. So u have to download the corresponding IDE driver for your hard disk and then u can install that from the floppy drive during the installation . I think on installation XP set up will ask for a driver installation (third party installation). U can do this by using a floppy disk . If the floppy drive is not all available in your laptop then u can use softwares which can mix the IDE driver along with the XP set up U have. A lot of softwares are available for download for this purpose

Thank u and please rate my solution

Upgrade NEC Versa VX


You can insert the Windows XP CD while logged on Win 98 and run a test from the CD. Obviously you need a larger Hard Disk and at least 126 MB RAM to bring XP to a usable speed. You can look for RAM upgrade options in this page.

I want to restore to factory state but boot cd won't work


I think your hard drive which is a SATA drive, needs to be formatted specially for Vista.
you need to find out the make and model of your hard drive,and then you can download a hard drive formatting utility program from the hard drive manufacturers website.
The hard drive is accessed from under the keyboard on this model.

Formate window xp in NEC laptop


I suppose the upgrade was a success. Then go to the boot sequence on the bios and set it to the cd rom. but make sure that the cdrom is working fine, meaning try to install it on a differn computer and see if you can play audio cd on it to see if its working or not.
