When I am starting my Lenovo G550,Model Name-20023 it restart with blue scrren. I am trying to start it in safe mode but same problems appears. Then I am trying to format the system with windows XP-2 but...


If you get a blue screen then you have a piece of hardware loose inside your lappy or could be a loose cable on the hard drive or cd/dvd rom, since lappy's are very hard to take apart it's best to take it to a shop to get fixed sorry.

Hi !

If you enter in Windows XP set up, below instructions will appear:

1. To set up Windows XP not, press ENTER.
2. To repair Windows XP installation using windows console, press R.
3. To quit set up with installing Windows XP, press F3.

By pressing ENTER means it will repair your operating system and it will delete all your files in hard disk drive leaving nothing to that particular drive or partition.

By pressing R means it will repair your operating system files only and it will not remove your files.

By pressing F3, it will exit the Windows XP set up.

Setup does not detect any hard drives


This error means the operating system on the hard disk couldn't load due to possible faulty hard drive or disk controller. The fault could also mean the hard drive needs reseating to make proper connection. Reseat the hard drive and if you still get this error, then you need to determine if the disk controller is faulty.
To do this, remove the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and plug it into a working computer's USB port. If this computer see this hard drive as an external drive and you can also see the contents of the drive, then the hard drive is OK and the fault is a faulty disk controller. If the computer cannot detect the hard drive then the hard drive is faulty.
Then get a new hard drive insert it into youe laptop and install Windows to get your laptop operatioal.

My Dell Optiplex 17OL Computer wont start up


First try to log it on a safe mode. Just reset it once or twice. When screen list safe mode, safe mode with networking,.... Lask known configuration. Scroll to safe mode and click. Wait till your desktop appears. Then restart. If this doesn't work check the hardware connections of your desktop PC most importantly the RAM and HDD. If this doesn't work again reinstall your windows XP operating System Installer.

Blue screen


If  you are trying to install Windows XP in latest Notebook, it will not be able to detect the Hard Drive since all the latest Notebooks are shipped with SATA Hard Drives and by default and Windows XP will not be able to detect SATA Hard Drives by default.
If you are having a Intel based Notebook, you need to download the SATA Drivers from the link below :
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp36001-36500/sp36132.exe

Find the instructions to create a bootable XP Disk using the SATA Drivers from the link below :

HP Pavilion ze5500 - Laptop won't recognize hard drive.


Hi. Once I had this similar problem with a HP Pavilion dv9000. "No Operating System"; "Windows Recovery Console cannot continue because there's no HD present..press F3 to Exit". No progress with Safe Mode nor Command Prompt, etc.
Then I went to the Bios, change tab to "System Configuration" and change the "Sata Native Support" to disable, whitch says that by changing to disable the HD would work better if the Operating System are Win2000 and Win9x.
Hit "Safe and Exit" and the computer started normaly!
I relly don't know how or why. It just work.
I don't know if would work for Linux (mine had Windows XP) and don't know the Bios view of your laptop. But you can explore and give it a try.
Hope this helps.
God Bless You!

Windows XP professional loop


Glad to hear you have your OS disc handy... let's try this:

Insert your XP CD and when it asks if you want to boot from the CD, press any key (ENTER) to do so. When asked, press ENTER ("To setup Windows XP now") and follow these steps...

To repair a Windows XP installation using Recovery Console, press "R"
To quit Setup without installing Windows XP, press "F3".
Press Enter to start the Windows Setup. DO NOT choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the Recovery Console". You Do Not want to load the Recovery Console.
Accept the License Agreement and Windows will search for existing Windows installations.
Select the XP installation you want to repair from the list and press "R" to start the repair.
((Note: If Repair is not one of the options, END setup. After the reboot read Warning#2! ))

Setup will copy the necessary files to the hard drive and at some point the system will reboot. When this happens, you want to now allow the system to boot from the hard disk but leave the CD in the drive. So do not press any key to boot from CD when the message appears. Setup will continue as if it were doing a clean install, but your applications and settings will remain intact.

Hope that helps.
Good luck!
