Windows explorer has stopped working.....


Windows Explorer is part of the Windows Operating System. If you reformatted C: drive then your PC has operating system in it. You need to re-install windows back into the C: drive as the Destination Drive. Should be fine after that. In a pinch, if your PC has really failed completely. Then, buy a Hard Drive adapter cable set which will allow you read your drive once you remove it using another computer. You can then copy the files somewhere else to save them or move them.

Hi,

You cannot downgrade Windows 7 from Windows XP by not reformatting the hard drive. You need to Remove Windows 7 first, before installing Windows XP Operating System. In order to use the Windows XP CD to fully reformat the Hard drive, follow the steps on the link below.

Will windows 7 suport this hard drive


Hello,

Yes Windows 7 will support this drive but if it was formatted using either a Mac or an older version of windows it will tell you it needs to format the drive. If it was formatted with an older version of Windows simply dismiss the warning and do not allow it to format the drive. If it was formatted with a Mac, then you will need to reformat it before it will work on a PC but you will want to copy everything off the drive before formatting it as formatting will destroy the files currently saved on the drive.

Hope this helps FixYa,

Chris

My Dell desktop computer will not boot and it is too old to spend money on repairs. However, I would like to be able to get the files off my hard drive. If I buy a kit and turn the internal hard drive...


Nope. you cannot access your files. even if you use a external hard dive to access the files.

i suggest you install windows 7 in your computer but do not reformat the hard disk . in that way your files will still be saved in your harddrive.
Once you have access to your files i suggest you save them in a flash drive or external hard drive if you have one. then reformat your computer and install a windows xp.

here is a tutorial on how to install windows 7 without reformatting your harddrive.

Goodluck. If you have any success using my solution please give me updates.. Thanks

Installing Windows XP in place of Kylin OS


If you have a copy of MS-Dos should work. The hard drive needs to be reformatted. This should change the File Allocation Table (Fat) and allow you to install Windows XP. Hope this helps.
