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

I need a new hard drive do I need to reinstall windows agin


Yes the new hard drive will be completely blank. Your dell should have came with recovery disks (a windows disk, driver disk, ect) or a recovery patition that you would have to burn the disks from to make a set of disks. These disk will reinstall the software on your Dell computer and make it fully functional. If you do not have any recovery disks, you can contact Dell for a set. Be aware they sometimes will charge a fee to provide you with these disks.

Hope this helps

My computer runs so slow and cant play my games on count of it. It needs cleaned up bad and i dont know how to do it. Please help me.


Backup all your files (E-mail, address book, music, license-keys for purchased software),
writing either to DVD-recordable disks, to an USB memory-stick, or to an external disk-drive.

Then, reinstall Windows, "wiping" everything from your disk-drive.
Run "Windows Update" (repeatedly) to get all the latest security-updates.
Reinstall anti-virus software.
Reload your files.
Reinstall the purchased software.
Reinstall the free software (Adobe Reader? WinAmp?).

I can not reboot my Dell Studio XPS 1645 running Windows 7, because everytime I try reboot my computer the Windows Dianostics Utility keeps on starting up. I tried to use my Windows 7 installation...


Sounds like you've tried everything except a complete reinstall. If there is information you need off that computer the hard drive will need to be taken out and plugged into another PC as a second hard drive then all can be copied. Then try a complete reinstall and good luck with that. If any problems doing a reinstall i would look at the ram. Cheers from Scott and plz vote

Sony vaio VGN FS 742W notebook Startup problem.When swithed ON,Vaio,Window XP screen appears and then window 'isass' appears & notebook swithes OFF automatically.Pl.advise solution for the above....


If Windows appears, and start booting, then the problem concerns the operative system and not the hardware.

That is good news, because all you need to do is using the original computer recovery disk, or finding a Windows setup disk to reinstall Windows.

To reinstall Windows, start the computer with the Recovery Disk or Windows Disk inside and chose Boot from CD when asked, then follow instructions.

Regards.

How do I re-format Acer 4200 TravelMate hard drive?


Windows Reinstallation Disk option:

Insert Windows Reinstallation disk into tray, Boot to CD/DVD-ROM by pressing F12 at initial boot screens, delete existing Windows partition, re-create partition, and then follow steps to reinstall Windows. This will lead you to an option for formatting hard drive. I recommend choosing the full format versus the quick, from this point you can let windows install, or just shut the computer down when the format finishes. You will have to watch the progress, though, if you don't want the install to commence.


Boot disk option:

For XP, 95, 98, or ME, follow the instructions at this MS article page. It will walk you through creating a boot disk that will allow you to format.

You will need a floppy disk or CD

New hard drive to install windows sayind


If you have not checked these(I am sure you have probably gone through this or don't need to but just in case)

First thing is first you have installed a new hard disk, is this the only hard disk installed. If Yes, does the bios recognize it? If Yes, is it bootable. Meaning is there a working copy of windows installed? If not reinstall from windows installation disk. If Yes, you may still have to reinstall windows you can use the windows installation disk as well.


This sounds like an issue that I had taking a hard drive from one computer and placing it in a brand new one. This message sounds like windows is damaged. I had to reinstall windows and leave the file system intact. There is an option to do this. If you feel comfortable you can always use a boot disk and check the boot .ini to make sure that it has the correct path for windows written in that may be the issue there. This file is hidden in the root directory of the drive.
