I have an Everex Impact GC 2500 and it says I need to reinstall windows xp but I dont have the disk or product key code from yrs ago. Part of my sticker on the side of the computer is torn so I cant see...


If your current copy of Windows is still working, search online for the free 'PRODUKEY' software.
Download it. Unzip it. Run it, and it will tell you the 25-character product-key that you used when you installed Windows. Write it down!

> don't have the disk

Some computers have an option at power-on time to boot to the "System Recovery" environment.
From that environment, you can reinstall Windows.

Some computers have a utility to use your CD/DVD writer to burn a set of "System Recovery" disks. Get up to 10 CD-writable disks, and run the utility.

Or, contact the manufacturer, and order a set of "System Recovery" disks.
Probably about $20, plus $20 for overnight-courier.

I want my bios to detect usb flash drive in boot order


You could download the latest bios version from the compaq website then when your computer starts up you will have to enter your bios. This is different for every computer but its usually accessed by pressing delete when the startup screen appears. Once in the bios change the disk boot priority to include the flash drive

I have just purchased a HP 2133 mini-note. On first installation, installation failed and now it just loops and wont do anything. How can I facilitate first installtion bearing in mind there are no disks...


The majority of these PCs have a recovery partition on the internal hard drive, here is the instructions for using it.
Recovering information using Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE)
Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE) can perform a recovery from either an optional external hard
drive or from recovery discs.
CAUTION: Using Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE) will completely erase hard drive contents
and reformat the hard drive. All files you have created and any software installed on the computer will
be permanently removed. When reformatting is complete, the recovery process will restore the operating
system, as well as the drivers, software, and utilities from the backup used for recovery.
To initiate recovery using WinRE, follow these steps:
NOTE: This process will take several minutes.
1. If possible, back up all personal files.
2. Restart the computer, and then press f8 before the Windows operating system loads.
3. Select Repair your computer.
NOTE: The "Repair your computer" option is displayed only if the WinRE partition is intact. If the
option is not displayed, refer to “Recovering information using a Windows Vista operating system
DVD (purchased separately).”
4. Follow the on-screen instructions.
5. Click Next.
6. Select your user name, type your password (if applicable), and then click OK.
7. If you are using recovery discs, insert the last disc of the recovery disc backup set.
NOTE: Inserting the last disc of the backup set confirms the presence of a valid backup. If you
insert any other disc, the backup will not be recognized.
– or –
If you are using an optional external hard drive, connect it to the computer.
8. Click Windows Complete PC Restore.
9. Follow the on-screen instructions.

this is getting long , so ill will post more steps in comment.....

When I restart (and sometimes when i use start)my computer freezes at HP invent. Then I have to turn it off by pressing the ON button for 5 or more seconds. Wait a few seconds and press the ON button again...


Try this, it may work for you. What I’m going to suggest is entering the DOS environment and making necessary changes to get your pc up and running.

- Reboot> At reboot watch for DOS screen option “enter setup” via a F button option. You have to watch closely because on some pc’s this option goes by quick, so be ready to act. Once in the DOS environment navigate to “boot options” choose safe mode . Save changes and exit. When your os is up go immediately to system restore: Click Start>all programs>accessories>system tools>system restore. Choose a date before your issue arose.>click next/continue and wait for system to restore. Reboot, and enter DOS environment once more and go to boot options and choose “Normal boot”>save changes and exit and you should be done. I hope this helped or at least gave you some ideas for further investigation.

My computer is not booting up, blank screen


Hi,

This may or may not help, but, we have to start somewhere. Reboot, watch for the "enter setup option" (F? button). You in DOS environment now. Navigate to windows boot/startup options, choose safe mode, reboot. Once your os is up go immediately to -start>all programs>accessories>system tools>system restore. Choose a date option before problem existed and click next/OK. Sit back and wait for system to do its stuff. If by chance it boots up in safe mode after this exercise is completed you can go back into DOS and choose normal boot.

Think i might have deleted some thing on my hpw1907 computer cause now it keeps telling me it cant find the environment option entered


[NOTE: You may need your (or any compatible, as in exact same version) Windows installation CD for the following to benefit you.]

Boot into Windows. CLICK Start>Run and type into the resulting dialog box, "sfc /scannow" (without the quotation marks).

NOTE: there is a space between "fc" and "scannow".

The System File Checker will scan your system files for any corrupt or missing system files and replace them with known good examples. It may ask you to insert your Windows installation CD into the optical drive.

When it finishes, reboot.
