Must reformat the drive (run FDISK at DOS prompt...F8 key at startup to get there...FORMAT at DOS prompt then SYS at DOS prompt and THEN start install over again....MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A GOOD FLOPPY DRIVE AND A FLOPPY DISK WITH THE ABOVE DOS PROGRAMS (MAKE SYSTEM DISK) ON THAT DISK! In addition, always good to copy CHKDSK.EXE (for drive error corrections) to this floppy!

Dell dimension 3100 wont load to main screen


You may need to roll back system with System Restore. Under Safe Mode (press F8 during boot and choose Safe Mode). Win 7 - Start > Search type System Restore. XP - Is Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Restore. Now choose a date prior to problem. You may have to try a few dates. Uninstall last program(s) that was installed, again in safe mode.
Try disabling startup programs. Go to Start > Run (search in Win 7) and type MSConfig. In Startup tab, uncheck anything that you don't want Windows to load automatically. It will make Windows boot faster and use less resources while running. This just disables them in startup. Programs will still load, but when only you initiate.

My cf-w7 hang after abt 15 mins


If this just started roll it back by with System Restore. Under Safe Mode (press F8 during boot and choose Safe Mode).


In Win 7 - Start > Start > Search type System Restore.


In XP - Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Restore. Now choose a date prior to problem. You may have to try a few dates.


There is the option of uninstalling last program(s) that was installed, again in safe mode.

You also try disabling startup programs. Go to Start > Run (search in Win 7) and type MSConfig. In Startup tab, uncheck anything that you don't want Windows to load automatically. It will make Windows boot faster and use less resources while running. This just disables them in startup. Programs will still load, but when only you initiate.

Starts up fine, gets to win xp loading screen and then goes black, i cannot get into windows, plz help


For that when you power up the computer press F8 key then if you are able to see safe mode and other menu then enter in enable vga mode.
Then go to start menu then control panel ->dispaly ->settings.
Also make sure that graphic driver installed and working fine.
change screen resolution to 1024*768 then apply and ok.
then check in normally.
But if you are not able to see even safe mode then you need recovery disk or windows disk.
Boot computer with that disk.
For that when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or "del" key to enter in bios .
Then go to boot menu then set first boot device as cd/dvd rom .then save and exit.
Thern it boot with disk.
Then follow the procedure and repair your previous windows.
Let me kno wif you need further assistance.

Copy all the cd's data of the cd and onto your computer into a folder "call it what you like" and resart the computer into safe mode by pressing F8 on start up untill you see the boot screen, "safe mode only" after your computer starts then go to your folder and try installing it again. if that doesn't work, call MicroSoft and thay will tell you what files need to be removed to be able to install it

Reformat and Reinstall XP, this would
clear whatever data is on the laptop. Or do an XP repair.
When you boot with the Win XP install CD-ROM, it loads a minimal operating system, similar to DOS, but compatible with Win XP. At the first screen you select install Win XP (not Recovery Console) and at the next screen it will find that you already have Win XP and offer to attempt a repair. This repair should not touch your Applications or data; it just reinstalls the Windows files. This is great because when it works you don't need to reinstall all your software.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Booing problem


Some computers have problems with having two operating systems, such as your xp and 2003. You could try deleting the 2003 server and downloading xp only.
If your os does not work after doing this then it is a safe bet that the problem lies with the xp software you have (It might have a corrupt file on it) and you might need to get a new copy of xp.
If all else fails then your 2003 server should be a fine substitute for your os
