    I don't think it was the operating system. It was a cd or something and I know he wasn't lying because I watched him find it and I saw the price. I just need the website he was on...ugh

The guy that told you it would only cost $40 is not telling the truth. Windows XP runs around $125.00. If you download an operating system from the web, Microsoft can see that your copy of Windows is not valid and disable your system from a remote server. I recommend buying Win XP from Best Buy. It is currently on sale until Jun 26, 08 for $99.99.

I want to know how can i start my computer over like when i first bought it


Hi
To set you computer back to factory fresh settings you will need to format the hard drive and reinstall the operatins system and the drivers.
You will need to have the CD's that either you made when you got your computer or if your lucky you got the CD's that the factory furnished with the computer at the time you bought it.
1...Format the hard drive:
You do this by double left clicking on "My Computer",then double left click the main drive (normally C drive).
When the window pops open, you will choose "Format"
Keep in mind that once you format your hard drive you will loose all your files,programs,pictures,etc that you installed since the computer was new. So make your back up on a portable hard drive,thumb drive,etc.
2. Once the formatting of the hard drive is complete you will need to reinstall the operating system along with the drivers.
Insert Disk one into the CD/DVD and start reinstalling your operating system
That will bring your computer back to factory new condition as far as operating is concerned.

Hey, guys. Just bought a PS3 Slim 320GB. Want to know if I can swap the hard drive for something bigger, like 500GB or 1TB. If I can, will I need to do some software mods, or is it just like plug-n-play?...


chrisff60

To upgrade your hard drive you will not need to mode the system. I know the system should support the 500gb drive. As for the 1tb drive it may work but it depends if the system has support for a 1tb drive. Sony may have not added support for 1tb drives to the PS3. The link below will show you how to remove the hard drive.

My webcam was just working find a couple months ago until my computer hard drive wouldn't connect so i had a new one put in and now cam want show clear like it was like to no why if you can help and cam...


So, your Hard Drive Crashed and HP just sent it back. Did you lose all your files? When you say Cam is not clear anymore, did you have to re-install the software? Could you have left anything out during re-install? Does everything seem good in Control panel system. Something is fishy here,It should be working fine. I wish I could help more.

Loading xp in my machine wich had vista home premium earlier


If your hard disk crashed then it sounds like the boot partition is corrupted or gone. I'm not sure you can rescue this without some professional software or help for that matter.

Might be just as easy & cheaper to buy a new hard drive & instal from scratch. Hard drive prices have dropped significantly over the last few years & at least you'll get a warranty with the new one!

Hope this helps

Hard drive crash, drive defects in the area where the O/S is, or, corrupted O/S files.

Download the hard drive manufacturer's diagnostic software and run it. It will examine your drive and give you an evaluation.

If it tells you the drive is fine, the either a complete reload, or a repair will get you back up and running. Whether you will be able to recover any of your data, will depend on the drive condition.
