Windows XP logo testing

HELP! I am trying to load an external DVD player on my windows XP PC, and the logo testing will not let me load the software. The dvd player IS designed for XP. The "ignore logo test and install anyway" option is selected in the hardware setup menu. I have tried everything suggested by the windows website to fix this problem. This is a problem with other software and drivers I have tried installing on this computer. This has also been an issue since I had to FDisk and reinstall windows. Anyone have any ideas????

    Sounds as if you have a policy to deny unsigned drivers to your system. Is this HOME or PROFESSIONAL?

oh a fun one. Reset your bios to defaults. if that doesn't work then try a windows disk boot up. if that doesn't work you're screwed.

if you want any of your files from the computer first pull out the hdd buy a cord and transfer them to another computer.

It will not go past the windows loading logo


There is nothing left to do for this one here. The best thing to do is to take your computer to the manufacturer for repairs. Other than that the best thing to do is to purchase an external optical drive / cdrom or dvd drive and purchase another windows xp disc and reinstall it. or if you have the windows cd for this computer that you could use that as well. Those are your best options.

No, You should start up pc and after it is to the desktop just plug it into a usb port. Windows should recognize and either load software or ask for disc. Usb devices has to be plugged in or removed live. That is while the computer is running.

Installation conflict with Windows Logo Testing


IF YOU HAVE INSTALLED THIS SOFTWARE ON A COMPUTER RUNNING XP AND IT WORKED WELL AND YOU FEEL CONFIDENT WITH THE SOFTWARE, I WOULD NOT WORRY ABOUT THIS SCARE TACTIC YOU ARE GETTING ON THIS NEW COMPUTER. IS THIS NEW COMPUTER RUNNING XP,SP2 AND THE OTHER ONE RUNNING JUST XP OR XP,SP1? THIS MIGHT BE WHY YOU ARE GETTING THIS SCARE SCREEN. IF THIS SOFTWARE HAS BEEN WORKING ON A MACHINE WITH XP, IT WILL CONTINUE TO WORK ON XP.THE LOGO TESTING AND VALIDATION PROGRAM WERE MADE TO STOP PIRATE SOFTWARE. IT DOESN'T SOUND LIKE THIS IS THE CASE HERE. SOME OF THIS LOGO TESTING HAD A LOT TO DO WITH GETTING UPDATED SOFTWARE TO WORK WITH NEWER VERSIONS OF XP AND VISTA. LIKE I SAID IF YOU ARE COMFORTABLE WITH YOUR PROGRAM I WOULD NOT FEAR THE WARNING AND INSTALL YOUR PROGRAM AND WHEN YOU DO, JUST CHECK FOR ANY UPDATES TO YOUR SOFTWARE.

Window's will not load... desperate need of help


Try this, hook up an external monitor to this PC, usually the F8 key allows you to enable the port to extend video to an external monitor, it varies on each PC. Either way try an external monitor see if the image comes up on that. My suspcion is that the Backlight for the LCD monitor is bad and needs repair. Get back to me please. I would like to no... I am pretty certain that is the case here!
