Question about PC Desktops

4 Answers

I have changed PCs and I am attempting to install Garmin's BlueChart Pacific CD into a PC running XP Professional 2002 with Service Pack 3. The setup aborts immediately after starting the installation (that is, after I have agreed to all the licence tick boxes and it begins to install) . Mapsource is installed ok, and so is Australia Navigator 2008. My old PC had XP Professional, but I don't recall a Service Pack 3 on that one....

    Thankyou Darklord, but i have done that and still it would not install. I also tested the CD on a different PC, and it worked well (that PC has XP Home - sorry, forgot to look which service pack, if any....). I can add this, tho: I get two prompts to tick the licence boxes, not just one as is the case when all works well...

Hello deckwanderer,
Your antivirus might be causing that.
I suggest you to 1st scan the file.
Then try to download or get the program again.
But if you trust that the instalation program you have is clean of malwares, disable (or close) your antivirus protection and try to install it again.
Good luck, and anything else you need let us know,
Dahaka

Maybe it isn the pc but the cd try this..

1.) create a folder on the desktop called something
2.) click start / my computer / Right click on the cd drive with the disc in it and click open
3.) select all the files (edit select all)
4.) copy them (edit copy)
5.) go back to the folder on the desktop and paste it in the folder
(edit paste)
7.) double click on the setup file to install it

NB ::: if the files fail to copy its cause part of the cd is damaged and thats why the instillation is aborting.

If the files copy and the instillation still fails then please post the failure message here so we can review it and guide your further.

You may need to check to see which "service pack" you are currently on.

See below requirements:

System Software — Windows XP & Vista
  • Windows Vista Business or Ultimate Edition
    • 32-bit OS Installation Only
  • Windows XP Professional or Home Edition
    • With Windows XP Service Pack 2 or Service Pack 3

  • Not Supported:
    • Windows Vista 64-bit (any version)
    • Windows XP Professional x64 Edition
    • Windows XP Media Center Edition
    • Windows 98, Me, 2000, NT, 95, 3.1, DOS

  • Not Tested:
    • Windows Vista Home and Home Premium Edition
    • Although Windows Vista Home and Home Premium Edition have not been tested or qualified by Digidesign, there are currently no known issues with Vista Home and Home Premium 32-bit operating systems and Pro Tools M-Powered 7.4 compared to the supported Windows Vista Business or Ultimate Edition operating systems.

Windows Vista SP1
There are currently no known issues with Service Pack 1 for Windows Vista based on our initial limited testing and customer feedback. Although full qualification with all Digidesign products has not been completed, we do not recommend against updating to SP1, given the number of important overall system fixes in SP1. We do recommend that you backup your system and create a restore point before updating to SP1, should you encounter any problems after installing the update.

Tip

What Does It Mean When Support for My Operating System Ends?


Microsoft Support for Windows Vista (with no service packs installed) ended on April 13, 2010, while support for Windows XP (without Service Pack 3 installed) ended on July 13, 2010. Windows 2000 support ended on July 13, 2010 as well.
There is no Service Pack 3 for the 64-bit version of Windows XP. If you're running the 64-bit version of Windows XP with SP2, you have the latest service pack and will continue to be eligible for support and receive updates until April 8, 2014.
If you are still running a version of Windows where support has ended, it means that version of Windows will no longer receive any updates from the Windows Update or Microsoft Update site. These updates are generally provided for security reasons to help protect the PC from harmful viruses, spyware, malware, and other malicious software. Windows Update also provides new drivers for your hardware that can improve the reliability of Windows.
Hackers love to take a security vulnerability in Windows and exploit it to their advantage. So, if a vulnerability is found in Windows XP or Windows Vista and you are not running the latest service pack, you will not be protected and will be at risk.

How Can I Tell What Service Pack is Installed?
Follow these steps to discover what Service Pack is installed:
1) Click on the Start Button
2) Right-click on either My Computer or Computer (depending on your Windows version)
3) Click on Properties
On this window, it should tell you which version of Windows along with which service pack is installed). It should also tell you whether you are running a 32 bit or 64 bit version of Windows.

Where can I download the latest Service Pack for Windows?
For Windows XP, click on the following link to download Service Pack 3

Next step is remove hard drive and see if it is recognized in another computer. The Hard Drive could just be bad, but you need to rule out the motherboard drive controllers that could also be bad. Also try a known good drive in your system.

Hello e_page,

This is a problem, as the only way you can really get a copy of Windows XP, is by borrowing one from a friend and making a copy.

We cannot really tell you how to download it via bittorrent, burn the iso(cd image file) to a cd thus making your own copy as its on the gray edge of Illegal.

No matter how you get a disc make sure to use your legal serial key only.

Thank you for trying Fixya!

Repairing Damaged Winsock2


1. Boot the computer using the XP CD. You may need to change the   boot order in the system BIOS. Check your system documentation 
  for steps to access the BIOS and change the boot order. 
   
   
  2. When you see the "Welcome To Setup" screen, you will see the 
  options below This portion of the Setup program prepares Microsoft 
  Windows XP to run on your computer:

  To setup Windows XP now, press ENTER.

  To repair a Windows XP installation using Recovery Console, press R.

  To quit Setup without installing Windows XP, press F3.
 
 
   
   
  3. Press Enter to start the Windows Setup. 

  do not choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the 
  Recovery Console, press R", (you do not want to load Recovery 
  Console). I repeat, do not choose "To repair a Windows XP 
  installation using the Recovery Console, press R". 

  4. Accept the License Agreement and Windows will search for existing 
  Windows installations. 

  5. Select the XP installation you want to repair from the list and 
  press R to start the repair. If Repair is not one of the options, 
  read this Warning!! 

  6. Setup will copy the necessary files to the hard drive and reboot.  
  Do not press any key to boot from CD when the message appears. 
  Setup will continue as if it were doing a clean install, but your 
  applications and settings will remain intact.
   
  Blaster worm warning: Do not immediately activate over the internet 
  when asked, enable the XP firewall
  [ http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=283673 ]
  before connecting to the internet. You can activate after the 
  firewall is enabled. Control Panel - Network Connections. Right click 
  the connection you use, Properties, and there is a check box on the 
  Advanced [ http://michaelstevenstech.com/xpfirewall1.jpg ] page.


  7. Reapply updates or service packs applied since initial Windows XP 
  installation. Please note that a Repair Install from the Original 
  install XP CD will remove SP1/SP2 and service packs will need to be 
  reapplied. 
  Service Pack 2
  http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=049C9DBE-3B8E-
  4F30-8245-9E368D3CDB5A&displaylang=en 
  An option I highly recommend is creating a Slipstreamed XP CD with SP2.
  Slipstreaming Windows XP with Service Pack 2 (SP2)
  http://www.winsupersite.com/showcase/windowsxp_sp2_slipstream.asp
 
  ______________________________________________________________________
   
  Warning!!
  If the option to Repair Install is not available and you continue 
  with the install;you will delete your Windows folder and Documents 
  and Settings folder. All applications that place keys in the registry 
  will need to be re-installed. You should exit setup if the repair 
  option is not available and consider other options.

  Try the link below if the repair option is not available.

  Warning!! If the Repair Option is not Available 
  What should I do? Most important do not ignore the information below!

  If the option to Repair Install is NOT available and you continue 
  with the install; you will delete your Windows folder, Documents and 
  Settings folders. All Applications that place keys in the registry 
  will need to be re-installed. 

  You should exit setup if the repair option is not available and 
  consider other options. I have found if the Repair option is not 
  available, XP is usually not repairable and will require a Clean 
  install.http://michaelstevenstech.com/cleanxpinstall.html
  If you still have the ability to access the Windows XP installation, 
  backup all important files not restorable from other sources before 
  attempting any recovery console trouble shooting attempts. 
   
  Possible Fix by reconfiguring boot.ini using Recovery Console.
  1.Boot with XP CD or 6 floppy boot disk set.
  2. Press R to load the Recovery Console.  
  3. Type bootcfg.  
  4. This should fix any boot.ini errors causing setup not to see the  
  XP OS install.  
  5. Try the repair install.

  One more suggestion from MVP Alex Nichol

  "Reboot, this time taking the immediate R option, and if the CD 
  letter is say K: give these commands

  COPY K:\i386\ntldr C:\
  COPY K:\i386\ntdetect.com C:\


  (two other files needed - just in case) 

  1. Type: ATTRIB -H -R -S C:\boot.ini DEL C:\boot.ini 

  2. Type: BootCfg /Rebuild

  which will get rid of any damaged boot.ini, search the disk for 
  systems and make a new one. This might even result in a damaged 
  windows reappearing; but gives another chance of getting at the 
  repair"

We have a windows vista computer and a game which we havent installed yet because we were wondering if it might damage the game or computer because on the minimum requirments it says that the computer must...


the worst that could happen is that the computer may not run the program. try installing the game, your cd (assuming that's the source of the setup files for the game) should not be affected.

after you install the program try to run it as usual by double clicking the icon to run the program if it doesn't run as expected try this.
1. right click the icon you use to run the game.
2. select properties
3. select the compatibility tab and select an appropiate mode. (ex. windows xp service pack 2)

not completely sure but you may also want to try to run the installation/setup program by changing the compatibility mode so you may be able to trick the program into believing the app/game is being installed on a windows xp service pack 2 system increasing your chances to have the installation running properly.

Restore CD's


Here's what you can do (for Windows):

1. Prepare all of the restore/installation cd that you have. And check all of them for the kind of operating system, service pack, and version.

2. And on the computer, check the operating system, service pack, and version of the computer by clicking on Start button, select Run, and type in this keyword "winver" short for windows version.

3. A small window will show-up, it contains the windows logo, kind of windows operating system that you have, service pack, and version.

4. Match those information to the restore cd that you have. And look for the right one.

5. Install or Restore the computer that you want to be restored. Enjoy!

Thanks!
Your good rating will be very much appreciated!

I have tried to install service pack 3 and my computer locks up with a Stpo: C000021a { fatal system error.. What do i do now??


a Repair may fix this
if you have an installation CD not just a recovery CD?

A repair won't lose any data, other than Service Pack (if not on CD), any Windows Updates and unsigned drivers, which will need to be re-installed afterwards.
Stay offline and do a repair dnt go online without a firewall enabled. After that you install all Critical Updates next.

How to Repair
1.Boot the computer from your Windows CD.

2.When you see the "Welcome To Setup" screen press [Enter] to start the Windows Setup.

Note: Do not choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the Recovery Console, press R", you Do Not want to load Recovery
Console.

3.Accept the Licence Agreement and Windows will search for existing Windows installations.

4.Select the XP installation you want to repair from the list and press [R] to start the repair. Setup will copy the necessary files to the hard drive and reboot.

5.Do not press any key to boot from CD when the message appears. Setup will then continue as if it were doing a clean install, but your applications and settings will remain intact.
if the problem continues after doing this then change the ram you are using that meana the ram should be part of the problem
i think this should solve the problem

Hard drive driver problem


Hi,

It is possible that your hard drive is a SATA and therefore not readily readable by 98, XP but surprised not even by Vista. In any case, since you would still prefer to run XP (due to other software compatibility issues), pls press F6 when prompted by the XP installer. Additionally, you would need to have ready in a floppy the appropriate SATA drivers for your motherboard. They maybe downloaded from the motherboard manufacturer's website or possibly in the installer/driver CD that came with the PC.

Other than the above, it is also possible that you may have some issues with the availability of XP drivers for the other devices for that computer specially if it is branded.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
