If you get to see a yellow exclamation mark that means to say that you will need to install the driver of that device. the current driver may be corrupt of non-functional. download the latest driver

I need to reinstall windows xp home edition i have the product code but no disk


I have used full install/ disk from other brands of computers (or other dell model numbers)to reinstall operation system (must be winxphome, dont worry about service pack, you can update). If you use any dell reinstallation cd, most likely you will not have to enter your key. If you use any other computer brand, or borrow someones xphome full install disk (not upgrade), then you will need to enter your key. Only problem of using for example emachine full install disk is that is will have emachine themes. Also you will likely need to down load other drivers. You are not lemited to to using reinstall cd for your model number. Good luck

Hello, I have a problem with my computer, I think all started with a virus when downloading a program to diagnose the pc or a driver for the modem, try removing the virus with several antivirus with no...


I think you just erased your hardrive. (Or it wouldn't show the Operating system not found message).
That means your data is already lost. (Unless you have 2 harddrives in your pc)

Get a Windows Installer CD from a trusted source. ( Maybe the local computer store can lend you one)
Test this cd on another pc (By just booting the cd , not by running the installer!)

Install Windows using this cd (Start it using F12 like you said)

Unable to install XP in CQ60-104tu compaq Presario


You may find that if you insert a blank CD instead of DVD you have more luck (the image you have created is a CD image not a DVD image). Another tip is that you should not copy the ISO image to CD but using Nero burn image to disk. Let me know if you need more help.

Lost drive for HL-DT-ST DVDRRW GSA-H21L


When starting up your PC, just before the Windows startup logo appears and after the PC starts up, press F8, and then choose the "Last Known configuration" startup.

You can start working from there on...

Hope That Helps!
