In doing a system restore i managed to wipe out windows in my el1852w ..now the screen says,install windows..X Windowscould not complete the installation.to install windows on this computer restart...


As PC starts watch screen for message "to enter setup press del" or similar. (press F!, press F2, press F12).Power down the PC and then power it back up. Be ready to press the KEY to enter setup while message is on screen. If you do not see the "enter setup" try holding the delete key as machine powers up.
Then repeat while holding F1 key etc. Once you enter setup (CMOS SETUP) find the boot settings and select CD as first boot drive. Put your full install CD in the CD drive have the license code ready. Example; AB123-1RD5C-XP94D-MN47G-LRIPQ. Your key will be on the CD sleeve or license sticker on PC. With install CD in drive power PC up. The PC should boot from the install CD. Do a full install on C drive. This should format your C drive erasing everything on drive C. Format with NTFS (new technology file system). During install the PC will restart a few times. At one point it will require you to type in license code. About half way thru install you will be instructed to remove all disks from drives, at this point you enter setup (CMOS) again and change from boot from CD as first choice TO boot from HD and second choice boot from CD. If you can not complete install you may have a hardware problem. GIVE plenty of time for each install step. Install may appear to have stopped but it will continue when it has completed that step.

I was restoring my computer. and the power went off. now its says i need to install dbghelp.dll how do i do this


Place the CD-Rom back in the drive and reboot the computer. You can just complete a new reinstall.
If, when starting the computer, it does not load Windows from the CD you will need to go into the BIOS and change the boot settings to make the CD-Rom a higher level than the hard drive.
When the computer reboots, look in the bottom of the screen and you should see Push "DEL" or "F12" to enter setup. Push whichever button and enter the setup. Locate the "Boot Order" option and move the CD-Rom up above the Hard Drive. Restart the computer and go into the installation.

How do I reformat my computer, because it will not boot up for me to be able to erase the data on it?


Hi,
If you bought the netbook brand new then in the box you should have a Windows XP Home install disk.
Now because you have not got an optical drive (CD/DVD) in the computer you will need to get yourself an external CD/DVD drive and connect it up to the computer. Pop the disk in the drive and restart your computer. Hit F12 as the computer starts up and select the external drive as the first boot drive. Then you can proceed to re-format and reinstall the operating system.

If your computer has Linux as the operating system you should have a Ubuntu install disk in the box. If you don't you can download the disk free, you are just going to have to use another computer to download Ubuntu and burn it to a disk. Just follow the instruction to boot from the external CD/DVD drive to install it.
Get Ubuntu here >>>>>>

My computer is dead?


With the old drive in the computer you should be able to do a recovery with the disks furnished with the computer when you got it.

What you have to do with the new disk installed is go into the BIOS and set the disk to AUTO, then srrow net to Boot and set the boot priority to CD as first boot. Then hit F10 or go toe EXIT and say YES. Then with your Windows disk in the ROM drive start the computer and when the window asks whether to BOOT from disk or CD ROM, hit any key and follow the instructions. Including format the disk when it asks.
Hope this helps. Bud

Install Xp From Dos


If XP will not install from the CD or if you have a new drive with no operating system onit yet try these:

Install Windows XP from the hard drive with Windows 98 already installed:

Boot Windows 98
Insert the XP CD into your CD reader
Explore Windows XP through My Computer
Copy i386 folder to C:\
Go into C:\i386 folder and double click on winnt32.exe to launch the setup from the hard drive

Install Windows XP from DOS (ie. no OS on a new hard drive):

Boot with a Windows 98 Start Up disk
Insert the Windows 98 CD into the CD reader
Run smartdrv.exe from the Win98 directory on the windows 98 CD (file caching)
Type cd.. to back up to the root directory
Insert Windows XP CD into the CD reader
Copy the i386 folder to C:\
Go into C:\i386 folder on C: and type winnt.exe to launch the setup from the hard drive.

I have 2 drives C:\ and D:\ Im trying to reinstall my windows but my c drive would not allow me to do so. Instead I could only do so on D:\ Now I have three options during bootup: c:\Windows, D:\Windows...


Hi.

Insert the xp CD in the drive.
Where it asks you to choose a location to install xp, just delete both the partition. (default button D)
Then make two fresh partition and install xp in the first one (that is C).

This will solve your problem.
