Question about Computers & Internet
Hi Ive got a laptop and its out of warranty, a few months ago it decided to pack up and when it booted it said unable to find operating system and figured it out to be the hard drive had gone so I bought a new HDD, I then re-installed XP and booted into windows but a problem that was occurring before the hard drive died is happening again now.
When I turn on the laptop the XP loading screen shows sometimes and then just turns off so I restart and If i put a little pressure above the numbers at the top of the keyboard it boots perfectly into windows but then I get a message saying new hardware found ACPI uniprocessor software installed restart the computer. So I restart and it keeps doing this over and over again. I cant remember the last time I booted into windows properly.
First you understand yourself is that after the windows logo screen apperars and its get restart means there is some changes or malfunction happened to your hardware - Although you changed your hard disk will not solve your problem. Please clarify as follows
1) did you load you operating system to this hard disk by any other computer help - if you load it with the same system try to reinstall the system.
If the problem existing 100% your motherboard is partially damage I think the uniprocessor side voltage variation is happening while you press keyboard some charge (voltage) you are supplying to the motherboard, sometimes some key pulse is more than 5 volt so that pulse support to get moved some points
First check your windows try to reinstall agian - I predict that you got this hard disk installed through some other laptop so the hardware configuration is different.
