This message comes up when someone has (or had) software from Blancco installed on the system. This software stores information on the computer's Master Boot Record. You will need to fix / replace the master boot record to remove this.

I must advise you to perform a full backup on the hard disks and check with your company prior to doing anything further. They may have installed this Blancco software and need it to be there for a reason.

After you've performed a full backup to an external drive or media, you need to create a bootable MSDOS startup floppy disk and copy the FDISK command to it as well. Then after booting from this disk, type "fdisk /mbr" at the prompt. The FDISK program will rebuild your MBR and write over the Blancco information.

If you have a copy of "The Ultimate Boot CD 4 Windows" it has several programs that will also fix your MBR as well.

Good luck!

Computer wont start


Several different hardware failures can cause this type of issue. The first step that should be taken is to verify that there are no lose or disconnected wires coming from or going to the computer. If when starting the PC your getting no power than there is an issue with the power supply. If you are getting power to the PC than you should listen for the beep code on start up. 1 beep after starting the computer indicates that the power on self test (Also known as the POST) has completed with out issue. When getting any other type of beep code you should research the meaning of the code. Beep codes change from company to company. The best way to identify the meaning of a beep code is to type the manufacture, model and number of beeps into Google. Another possible issue is that your hard drive is corrupt. If this is the case than your computer will pass the power on self test(POST) but will have a message like MBR not found or one of many other errors. If you are getting an error than it is also a good idea to research the error to determine the proper fix. If the PC seems to boot correctly but there is no image on the screen than the issue may be a result of a bad video card. In that case the video card will need to be replaced.

I hope that information above has helped is some way.

Hi wht to do as error 0x000000ED


When you first restart your computer during the upgrade to Windows XP, or when you start Windows XP, you may receive the following error message:

STOP 0x000000ED (0xaaaaaaaa,0xbbbbbbbb,0xcccccccc,0xdddddddd)
UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME


Note In this error message, aaaaaaaa, bbbbbbbb, cccccccc, and dddddddd are hexadecimal numbers that may vary.

If you receive this error message when you restart the computer for the first time during an upgrade to Windows XP, your original operating system will still work correctly. In some cases, you may see a message that states that the wrong cable is being used. However, you may not see this message on computers that have a fast startup time.


Advanced troubleshootingThese methods are intended for advanced computer users. If you are not comfortable with advanced troubleshooting, you might want to ask someone for help, use the Microsoft Customer Support Services Web site to find other solutions, or contact Support. See the "Next steps" section for more information about the Microsoft Customer Support Services Web site.

Begin by reading the "Technical information about the error" section to understand why the error might be generated and the purpose of the message. Otherwise, you can skip this information and begin with "Method 1: Check the error message" to help you resolve the issue. Technical information about the errorThis section provides some technical background about the cause of this error message and why it might be generated.

This behavior can occur if either of the following conditions is true:
  • Your computer uses an Ultra Direct Memory Access (UDMA) hard disk controller, and the following conditions are true:
    • You use a standard 40-wire connector cable to connect the UDMA drive to the controller instead of the required 80-wire, 40-pin cable.
    • The basic input/output system (BIOS) settings are configured to force the faster UDMA modes.
  • The file system is damaged and cannot be mounted.
The purpose of this error message is to prevent the following two things:
  • Potential data loss caused by using an incorrect IDE cable for the faster UDMA modes. An IDE cable is a kind of cable used to connect storage devices, such as hard disks, inside a computer.
  • Continued access to a drive on which the file system is damaged

Hi i have compaq presario 5000, detailed description would be P5700/P.4-1.6G/128M/40G/D16/M. i wanted to know which mother board is inside this PC and i wanted to upgrade my ram from 128 to 1 Gb. is it...


768 meg is the most you can put in the 5000 ..your system only has 128 meg so 768 would be a considerable improvment .... "crucial.com" is a great company to get reliable memory and information ... here is their page on your computer

My computer booter will not turn on 4 anything


Check the capacitors on your motherboard first. Failure of motherboards is usually due to breaking capacitors. A few years ago a capacitor company stole the "recipe" for making capacitors from another company and tried to make their own, unfortunately they did not get the ingredients right and the capacitors started breaking after 2-3 years of use. They sold these capacitors at very cheap prices and a lot of computer companies and power supply makers bought them. This is easy to diagnose. Look for capacitors (caps) (they look like little tiny soda cans) on your motherboard (mobo). They should be perfectly flat on top and not bulged or swelling or leaking anything. The dead giveaway is the fact that you are not getting a monitor signal and if you listen to your computer as it starts up, a few of the devices may not start (hard drive, etc). A failed video card will also give you "No signal message", but the computer should sound normal when starting up. Mobos are usually expensive to replace because the computer makers have them made especially for them and only order so many. They usually do not have a lot of extras laying around. There are a few companies that will repair broken capacitor issues. Hope this explains why they can fail.

COMPAQ MODEL5050 - ERROR MESSAGE:PXE-E00- NOT ENOUGH BASE MEMORY. (FRESH INSTALLATION OF XP. WAS GETTING SAME MESSAGE BEFORE INSTALLATION)


Your computer was designed for Windows 98 not XP, XP needs at least 256 MBs of memory to run even near efficiency and your model of computer originally came with 96 MBs as witnessed by the company website here
While it is possible to get XP to run on your machine you are trading off a lot of wait time watching it slowly run with the limited amount of memory as originally placed in the computer by manufacturer. The RAM on the computer can be upgraded to 256 MBs according to company website which should cure your problem at least in the case of most of applications, but NOT all.
Present day ( modern RAM ) cannot be used on your system, and finding it locally may be difficult unless you have some variety of computer stores in your locale. You will need SDram. Recommend you make a print out of the page I referred you to and starting making phone calls or shopping on the web.
It doesn't hurt to pay a little bit more for this SDram as you want to be sure you have a good return policy just in case. Most technicians will not charge you extra to install the memory themselves if you buy at their local store.

Error loading operating system


Hi,

An error message as you have posted would indicate:
1. The hard disk does not contain a valid operating system. Alternately, it may have the OS installed but some files are missing or corrupted;
2. The partition of your hard disk may have been deleted/missing;
3. The hard disk is no longer recognized by the computer;
4. Your CMOS/BIOS is set to boot from the CD/DVD only but it does not contain a bootable disc;

Corrective measures may include any or all of the following:
a. Load and use the restore/recovery CD of your PC if it came with one;
b. Repair or re-partition of hard disk;
c. Repair or re-format of hard disk;
d. Repair or re-install the Operating System;
e. Re-configure CMOS/BIOS to boot from the hard disk (HD) first;
f. Worst case scenario is replaced hard disk and re-install Operating System.

It is possible that you would loose most if not all of your documents, files and/or data unless you can do a back-up.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
