Your hard drive is divided into bits called sectors. When these sectors start to go bad, that means that the computer cannot read or write any data on those sectors. You cannot remove bad sectors and once you start seeing bad sectors it is a sign that your hard drive is about to crash permanently so you need to replace your hard drive and make sure you back up all ofyour important data immediately.

I've inherited a computer with Novell, and I don't have any passwords. AND the disk drive isn't working. I have XP and DOS boot disks. How do I get past Novell and force the computer to "see" the...


Sounds like you've "inherited" a business computer, pretty sure illegally too. When a computer is supposed to change hands, there shouldn't be any software/o.s. on there. I know people do fresh installs for sale so it's ready to go, but with Novell on the system, and p/w protected too, I'd say it came into your hands in a 'this computer has not been signed off in the correct way' kind of way.
Get yourself a copy of windows p.e.(pre installation environment), it's a windows os on a cd so doesn't need installing(works from Ram). You can then view the C: drive from viewer. You can even format the disc using windows pe.

I'd check if your legaly 'allowed' the computer before turning it on though.

NTLDR is missing in my computer


Missing NTLDR can be caused by any one of these problems :-

Computer is booting from a non-bootable source.
Computer hard disk drive is not properly setup in BIOS.
Corrupt NTLDR and/or NTDETECT.COM file.
Misconfiguration with the boot.ini file.
Attempting to upgrade from a Windows 95, 98, or ME computer that is using FAT32.
New hard disk drive being added.
Corrupt boot sector / master boot record.
Seriously corrupted version of Windows 2000 or Windows XP.
Loose or Faulty IDE/EIDE hard disk drive cable.
Failing to enable USB keyboard support in the BIOS

With Windows XP follow these instructions
  1. Insert the Windows XP bootable CD into the computer.
  2. When prompted to press any key to boot from the CD, press any key.
  3. Once in the Windows XP setup menu press the "R" key to repair Windows.
  4. Log into your Windows installation by pressing the "1" key and pressing enter.
  5. You will then be prompted for your administrator password, enter that password.
  6. Copy the below two files to the root directory of the primary hard disk. In the below example we are copying these files from the CD-ROM drive letter, which in this case is "e." This letter may be different on your computer.

    copy e:\i386\ntldr c:\
    copy e:\i386\ntdetect.com c:\
Once both of these files have been successfully copied, remove the CD from the computer and reboot.

If this doesn't work, then the last resort is to install Windows again, plus the computers device drivers and your programs.

Need to replace the hard drive. TP-5800 Series


You need to remove the front cover of the monitor. Be careful not to tear the vga and touchscreen ribbon cable. Next there is a metal plate that you need to remove by unscrewing 1 screw. The hard disk should be accessible then

Low Disk space on Neoware e140 (Windows XP Embedded)


Yes, you can disable this message via the registry editor.

Click start, then Run. In the boxy type regedit. Press enter. (In Vista, click start, then in the search box, type regedit)

Navigate to the folder HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\
Explorer

Click on NoLowDiskSpaceChecks and change the value from 0 to 1. If the entry doesn't exist, click on new DWORD value, type in NoLowDiskSpaceChecks and enter 1.

Navigate to the folder HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\
Explorer and do the same thing there.

Exit out of the registry. Your computer may need to be rebooted in order for the changes to take effect.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate this solution as fixya.

Posiflex TP5800 - Reinstallation of OS


I'm assuming that you do not have a cd or floppy drive on the terminal. Well i had a similiar terminal with no cd or floppy drive and i managed to re-install the os by removing the hard drive, mounting it on an existing machine with windows 2000 machine then i copied the installation to the hard drive by using the winnt32 command ine utility. So lets say that you remove the hard drive and mount it to another PC(In my case it was a laptop harddrive 2.5" and i needed a converter)and on the pc I formatted it and it was designated as drive G:. My cd rom is drive E: With the windows 2000 cd rom in the drive from the command prompt i typed E:\i386\winnt32 /makelocalsource /syspart:G /tempdrive:G After that completes i put back in the hard drive in the terminal and boot the terminal and i continue with setup. I hope this was helpful!
