Hi!

Are you installing Windows operating system? On a desktop computer or laptop. Most of the times, program hangs during the installation, when the system detected a conflict hardware in your system.

Can you please elaborate.. The installation hang up during what event? (For example: is it during the process of "Installing Devices."

Most common problems are loose connection of power supply and ide cable on the hardisk, defective or loose connection of keyboard and mouse, not properly seated video card on the motherboard, not properly seated memory card on the motherboard and lastly, not properly configured settings on the CMOS / BIOS setup.

Please post back for further assistance.

I installed Windows XP a second time on my hard drive hence I now have a menu on boot up where I select which operating system I wish to use. I have since delted the second install of XP but the menu...


If you just formatted the partition with the second XP installation on there, it should remove the boot menu where you choose which installation to go to.
Here are a few options for you to choose from.
  • Option One: Open Start-Run and enter msconfig Click the tab "BOOT.INI" The contents of the boot.ini file are shown and a number of configuration settings are available. Under Operating systems, delete the one you don't want. Be careful not to delete the wrong one.
  • Option Two: Right-click on "My Computer" and choose "Properties" from the context menu. The System Properties dialog box will open. In the section "Startup and Recovery" click the button "Settings". To delete the unwanted operating system from the boot display menu, use the "Edit" button on the right of the entry.
  • Option Three: If the OS is Windows XP Professional, it has a command line utility for manipulating boot.ini called bootcfg.exe.
    Click start, type CMD, click OK and you are presented with the command prompt. Type bootcfg /? It will list the description and parameter list. Once again, you can delete the unwanted OS.
  • Option Four: Boot to the XP install disk and open up the command prompt utility of the disk. Enter "fixmbr" and press enter. Restart the computer and remove the disk.

Daughters keyboard wasn`t working properly so i was going to re install disk but when i turn on laptop it goes straight to the windows resume page which gives you 2 choices to hilight then press enter but...


Reinstalling the operating system won't solve your keyboard problem. If you have another good working keyboard, plug it on the laptop and try to see if the problem will disappear.
Usually, the laptop keys stop working because there's something stuck underneath and is preventing the key from going all the way down. It would be good to take a small brush or use a vacuum cleaner at a low suction setting and vacuum up the keyboard to get rid of anything that's stuck beneath the keys.
If the cleanup of the keyboard does not help and the external keyboard misbehaves in the same way as the laptop keyboard then it might just happen that a reinstall of the operating system might help.
You'll need to go to BIOS and set up the DVD drive as the primary boot option, so that when you place the DVD in, it boots from it, instead of booting from the hard drive.
Depending on your laptop model and BIOS version, you will need to hit F1, F2, F10 or F12 right after you turn on the laptop. Just pay attention to the first screen that shows up, and it usually says at the bottom what key you need to hit to get into the BIOS settings. Once you're in, there should be a section called Boot Options, or it may be in the Advanced Settings. Again, the menu shceme depends on the laptop brand and the BIOS version, so you'll just have to look through the available options.

No operating system found


If the error message says "No operating system found" it is most likely a faulty disk controller or a faulty hard disk.
Reseat the hard disk, if this doesn't work you need to test the hard disk another way. Remove the hard disk and connect it to an USB hard disk adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port. If this computer sees this as an external hard drive and you can open the folders and files then the hard disk is OK and the fault is the disk controller on the the 4115c laptop.
If the hard disk is not detected then the hard disk is faulty. You need to install a new hard disk, install Windows and the laptop's device drivers and programs to get a working laptop again.

Error loading operating system


1. The reason it says "error loading operating system" is because kill disk wiped the operating system from off your computer.
2. Now that you have the installation disk, you need to tell the computer to boot from it. For Dells, usually press F12 when the Dell logo appears, and it should bring up a boot menu. Select the optical drive and it should boot. If you do not see a boot menu, go into your computer's BIOS and tell it to look at the optical drive first when booting, then it will boot from the disk.

Comp wont start up


The hard disk may have died. Check the BIOS and check the hard disk setting, if it appears OK then boot up with a DOS floppy startup boot disk, and select boot up without CD-ROM support, then type fdisk, answer Y to large disk support, select 4 to Display partition information.
If you see all your disk partition the most likely your hard disk is OK.
Most likely you operating system is damaged/corrupted and you will need to reinstall your operating system and drivers for all your devices.

Computer problem, help.


This generally indicates a hard drive crash/failure, in which the hard drive will need to be replaced. Rare, but occasionally you will get this error from an operating system glitch. Before you run out and buy a new hard drive, try reloading the operating system. If you have any problems during or after the install, then the hard drive is shot.
