WinXP reinstall !!!

I am reinstalling winxp on a dell and have done so before with no problems. However this time my father had acquired spyware or something that was impossible to get rid of and when I finally did it removed some of the properties from the display panel and such. I opted to reinstall (of course) and have been having problems since. I am getting a stop error message.
STOP:0x0000008E (0xc0000006, 0x8081A799, 0xF969c6B0,0X00000000)
asc3550.sys - Address F969C6B0 base at F969C6B0, DATEStamp 00000000

I was receiving another one that read setupdd.sys ..... but it seems that i have fixed it, at least for now.
If I could get some feed back It would be wonderful. Thx

In the process of installing a new video card and the ensuing tech support, my WinXP Pro SP3 has become damaged to the point that it has to be reinstalled. Of course, it is a long tedious task to reinstall...


You can install a second drive as a 'master' drive and turn your existing one into a 'slave', however, most software uses the system registry to store critical information and will not run without the proper registry keys. Extracting these keys will likely be much more tedious than reinstalling all the software. To protect against this kind of problem in the future you may want to look into a RAID system (Which is redundant hard drives that copy everything in case of a drive failure) as well as hard drive imaging software, such as norton ghost (There may be newer and better products than norton ghost but I don't know about them) to create periodical backups when everything is in a good working state.

Security Certificate Error: Not Trusted


It's because your system doesn't have the right time and date. Make sure that you have the right time zone and the automatic daylight change option activated as well, also check if your computer is on sync with an internet server, to do that just double click on the clock and a window will pop there you can do all those changes.

How to solve pci.sys error during reformating of the hard drive


You have two ways to solve the problem of "Pci.sys Is Missing or Corrupt"
Error Message When You Start Windows.

1.Booting with WinXP CD to access the Recovery Console’s Repair option,
and then copy from WinXP CD the missing or damaged Pci.sys file to
Systemdrive:\Windows\System32\drivers folder , Exit and Reboot.

start the recovery console and type:
set AllowAllPaths = true
expand d:\i386\pci.sy_ c:\windows\system\drivers32 /y
If you don't type
set AllowAllPaths = true you can't access the windows folder.

2. Booting with WinXP CD and then perform a Windows XP Repair Reinstall
of the currently installed system.

If you need detailed assistance post with details of your Operating system
[WinXP Home vs WinXP Pro and the SP status i.e SP1 or SP2 ]

Dell drivers


FIRST TURN ON THE SPEAKERS AND MAKE SURE THEY ARE ON AND TURNED UP LOUD. IF STILL NO SOUND, THEN CLICK THIS LINK TO THE DRIVER FOR THIS LAPTOP AND REINSTALL THE DRIVERS FOR THE SOUND CARD.

THAT SHOULD WORK....IF NOT CONTACT DELL SUPPORT OR REINSTALL A NEW SOUND CARD AND DRIVER.

Windows XP Pro installed but computer boots to Home Edition


It sure is possible.
I would take it back to them and demand that WINXP Pro is put back in there and it boot correctly
They saved about 50 bucks putting in WINXP Home.

Sounds like a bunch of rookies trying to pull a fast one.

Dell installed on compaq


Hi, you have to use the original CD installer for WinXP that came bundled with your Compaq Presario. Reinstalling with the use of that CD will overwrite all previous installtion (from Dell) and should correctly install the drivers as well. Should the CD be not available, you may want to try and call Microsoft Support and relay to them your problem. You may need copies of proof of purchase and other documents and/or the serial number for the WinXP normally printed on a sticker at the side, back (or underneath for a laptop) of the PC. Another way is to purchase a CD installer of WinXP SP2 and go thru the routine of installing it. Hiope this be of some help to you. Good luck.
