Yes I had have situations when keys have gotten stuck on laptops, and they make the sound you are describing.

try hitting every key alitle and see if it losens up.
Usally shift, alt, enter or ctrl keys in my experience.

How to install window xp over window vista as defult


not possible, unless you wish to dual boot the WIndows versions ... 'you will need to place the windows XP CD, boot from this CD and format your Hard Disk and then install windows xp.
make sure you have the windows xp licence key as the WIndows vista licence is not valid for windows xp.
last but foremost .. I strongly suggest you download the three key drivers from your manufacturer for 1) Sound Card. 2) Video Card 3) Network Card and have them available after windows is installed. As Windows does not detect all drivers for your computer. Then install either your current preference of Antivirus software or use AVAST (www.avast.com) which is freely available.
check your vendors website to confirm that there is drivers for your make and model laptop or pc.
good luck ... hope this helps...

Dell Inspiron 6000 laptop (windows/xp sp3) No boot sector on internal hard drive


Hi There,

Probably the easiest way to repair/replace the boot sector is using an XP install Disk. You need to insert the disk, restart the computer, and begin pressing the F12 Key during Bootup. You should be given a Boot Menu. Select your CD/DVD drive as the drive to boot from. Let windows XP do its setup and you will halt at a screen that gives you a chance to Press R for repair. Press R. You will be in DOS mode with a cursor blinking. Type FIXBOOT and press the enter key. Follow the propmpts.

If this does not fix your boot sector, go through the same whole process again but at the cursor type in FIXMBR and hit the entr key. This is to repair the Master Boot Record.

If neither of these tools get you booted back into Windows, then you could have any one of a number of other issues, It would be difficult to address them all in this forum.

I don't wish to be a doomsayer, but an Inspiron 6000 could easily be 5 years old, the same as the expected normal life of a hard drive.

Best of Luck.

Pc is restarting but doesn't show the log on screen


It sounds like your Windows Installation is corrupt. If there isn't anything you need on the drive, I would get a Windows XP CD (Look on the side of your case for a Windows Key, Get that version of the CD) Then I'd use that windows XP CD to wipe the drive and Re-install windows. If there is Data on the drive you need, You will need to invest in either a second HD, or You need to Install Windows on a Second HD and boot from that if you already have a second HD.

WHEN I START MY HP LAPTOP AFTERTHE WINDOWS XP APPEAR IT JUST STOP


It's not booting to the OS I take it. THen you need to do a recovery it you have one. First try F8 key when you turn laptop on try safe mode see if that boots. If it does restart F8 again try last know see if that one work that would be your last start up backup if that works you should be ok. If not then go to setup do boot from CD install your Windows CD restart your laptop and try doing a windows repair if that does not work then you will have to do a complete reinstall.
Good luck

SYSTEM SLOW TO LOAD, OVERHEATING AND CANT GET DRIVER


you can hold down the option key while you start up the computer. It will give you a grey screen and give you choices of startup systems... Choose the Mac OS and see if the start up is quicker. Sounds like the windows xp setup isn't working properly. I'd think elimination of the existing pc partition on the hard drive while running in mac mode and then running Boot Camp according to apple's instructions. Boot camp is on the Leopard OS disc and will get your computer ready to instal windows xp with an authorized xp disc. After it's up and running in windows xp, you can reinsert the mac os disc while running windows and the drivers will be installed for you...it works great... Plus you can download a copy of apple's bonjuer software and it will help you set up your printers to work on your mac as well.... Good luck and let me know if you need more help... KEN

Unable to keyin password while XP login page display


If I understand correctly, Yvonne - your keyboard just beeps when you key in the password? And then you are not passing this point -

It may be the keyboard itself - the beeping may be a stuck key.

Try to boot your system into SafeMode. Turn the system on and as soon as you see the Logo, begin tapping the f8 key. You should be given an option of how to boot your system. Select SafeMode. The next screen is the operating system (Win XP) press enter. The next screen will list all the accounts - plus the Administrator which is the one that you'll want to select. If you didn't add an administrator password during the last installation of Windows, you should just be ablr to press enter and move on to the desktop,

Remember - the Administrator can do anything -

Let me know how you make out, but please note: There's a limit as to what can be done with password workarounds due to privacy and the liability factor.
