When starting the computer, you need to enter the boot menu or set the machine to boot from the CD drive before the hard drive in the bios or utilities set up. Once you've done this, be sure the disc is in the drive upon start up. Then follow the directions.Keep in mind that the XP disc may not have all of the drivers or your machine, so you will have to go to Everex's support site and download them. You can see which drivers you may need in the device manager. Also, when updating XP, only install service pack 2, do not install three, it has issues and is really not needed.

How can i get a new main software disk for my Everex Stepnotenm3900w?


Everex filed for bankruptcy, and was acquired by NewMarket Technology,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Everex

As far as I know the company does not deal with Restoration Disk/s for the Everex line of computers.

I have two suggestions, but may not be what you want. (Don't shoot the messenger, lol!)

One;
Buy a fresh, new genuine copy of Windows Home Edition. The same version that was on the computer, install it. When asked, YES, you want to keep the old files that are on there. (Assuming you wish to save personal information that is on the laptop. If not perform a Full Installation)

You may have to go into the BIOS Setup, and in Boot Options set the first boot device to CDROM.
This forces the computer to boot off of the disk in the optical drive.
(Windows doesn't like to write over a previous operating system, with the same version of operating system.
If it was an upgrade to Windows 7 per se, it would be alright)

Two;
Download Ubuntu, and install it for free.

B) Ubuntu on an old laptop,

Just some suggestions.

I formated my everex stepnote VA1500V laptop. Where and how can I get my Audio, VGA, and Network drivers installed?


First, connect the laptop with an ethernet cable to see if the standard windows ethernet driver will get you online. If it does, go to windows update and let it scan your system. Choose custom install and view the optional updates, here you will find the hardware drivers for the devices windows found on your system, check all that apply and install them.
