Class

{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.

Insert your Windows XP installation CD or recovery disc, and restart the computer.

Instead of attempting to boot Windows as it normally would, the computer will give you an option to boot from the CD.


Press a key when prompted, then wait for the setup program to load.

Press the "R" key on the "Welcome to Setup" screen.


This will cause the CD to launch the Recovery Console instead of attempting to install Windows XP on your computer.


If you have an administrator password on your copy of XP, then you will need to enter it in order to log in to the Recovery Console.


Choose the installation of Windows XP that you want to repair (generally the only option). Wait for the command prompt to appear, then enter "fixmbr." Press "y" when prompted to let the FixMBR utility overwrite the corrupted bootloader with a new copy.


Remove your XP disc or recovery disc, then type "exit" into the command prompt.

The exit command should cause the computer to reboot, allowing the computer to load the new bootloader file and then continue Windows XP startup as normal.


Hope this helps

Compaq p933 can't power on


Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive


Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your MOTHERBOARD TO YOUR HARD DRIVE make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

even something as small as a faulty electrical extension or fan lead can cause you problems

computers need all of the data and electrical current to travel through every working device and to have an end to be able work properly


motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail

check all electrical power input and extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd floppy drives need to have current go through make sure these drives are working


also check the Cmos battery and computer RAM modules make sure they are securely seated with no dust built up or in the sockets on some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in

check you CPU make sure its securely seated and has thermal grease might be getting to hot


another possible reason could be a memory dump you might be running to many programs at the one time putting to much strain on the CPU central processing unit

Is it possible to add a graphics card to a mother board with an integrated graphics card


Yes it is.
Try installing the graphics card and booting up and seeing if BIOS and Windows pick it up. Windows will try and load a driver for the card. You may have to search the internet for a driver (the computer will prompt you for the option to connect tho the internet to locate a driver)
Also, You will have to move your monitor lead from the connector located somewhere at the rear of the computer, and screw it on to the new graphics card slot, after installing the card. Dont forget that motherboards have diffenrt graphics card slots. Older tyoes such as found on older P4 computers will use an AGP slot. Others will use a PCI express slot. Check out your manufactures website for downloads and tech assistance.

You may have to make a change in BIOS (hit Delete key when booting up) to enable your new card, or watch for a message on the screen just after turning the computer on..something like "hit F1 key or F2 key or similar messages to enter Setup in BIOS)
Check out your manual for your motherboard or computer for further info/ Another good source of info is user groups on the web for your particular computer) Google is your friend!
Good luck, any questions raise a comment!

My ingenico i8550 not coming up.


Do you mean you can not switch terminal on?
If so you have to dismantle terminal and then to assembly it again.
You need IP6 screw driver to undo the main board.
To do this you need to know proper procedure for disassembly.
Aim is to disconect HSC module from main board clean the 120 pin contacts and put HSC back
in mating connector.
If you are not trained for this I suggest not to tamper with.
Kind regards Nebojsa
