Was given inspiron 5000e laptop- / can it be


Yes, you can upgrade to windows XP but it will require upgrading the memory to the maximum supported memory of 512 MB. It is set up with PC100. I would suggest going with PC133 when you upgrade the memory. Be advised though that the PC100/PC133 memory is expensive new but you can usually shop around and find it used for a cheaper price. The 800MHz processor will support the XP operating system.

Windows does not start


Error 257 is an error message (according to Western Digital's website of error messages) meaning that you have a hard drive problem. Also, from the sound of your re-installation problem, you most definitely have a hard drive problem. Get a new one, preferable a beefy brand-name one with at least 250GB; more if you can afford it. Installation is not too difficult, if you know your way around a PC chassis. If not, call around to local PC repair shops and ask for estimates of doing just this, nothing more. You can install XP Pro yourself back at home. You may spend a lot more money that you planned if you let them up-sell you, though. If this was a car, you just need a new engine, not a whole new car...just go into this with eyes open and you'll be OK.

Acer Aspire 5050 Won't Boot.


Your problem could be windows vista isnot installed properly
i assume in the beginning, your laptop come with windows xp.
if you want to go back to windows xp, you can still use alt+f10, as long as you don't delete the recover partition.
Just boot and press Alt+F10, it'll give you recover screen.

A black box appears on the screen


Hi,
Just happened to see your black box problem associated with your T.V.; Thought I would pass along an idea for you to check into, and let me know if it helped...Check into whether or not it has a onscreen text block mode, if it gets into this mode by accidentally pressing the wrong buttons on the remote and or TV, it could and I have seen, at least with zeniths, a big black box which will cover the whole screen except for a 2 to 4 inch border around the box and outer edge of the screen...if this is the case, find someone familiar with the correct setting for the set associated with this problem, and get it back into the right mode....Hope this helps..T.

Windows xp wont reload


This happens so much with upgrades! We think we are making our pc's better, and then find it doesn't like it. I am assuming you completely uninstalled millenium, then tried to load xp? If you did not, the registry still has parts of millenium on it, and is asking for this. You need to completely uninstall millenium first. You need to obtain mill copy, and select uninstall, then when done, put in your new xp disk and try again. Lilacgerry xxx
