Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Windows xp sp3 blue screens when I tried a fresh install numerous times, I used all the drivers that came with my MB and the new HDD, I cannot clone the drive using the included software or any other software I downloaded. each time I reboot the computer it loses the seagate drive only, I have a WD sata drive that works each and every time. After running seatools for both dos and windows SMART failed twice but upon erasing the drive it passed all tests. The message I get (when I do get one) says to remove any hardware or software recently installed which is only xp and the drivers along with seatools.

The drive is failing. That is why a fresh install is failing. You could boot to the Windows CD and repair your installation but, even if it works, it won't be long before the drive loses more data and send you back to the blue screen of death. Ditch the drive, it can't be trusted.

My evo610c would not start and failed the HDD self test. I installed a new hard drive. It now passes the HDD self test, but will not go past the screen that says "not-system disk, replace and try again"....


Put the Windows CD disk into the CD-drive.
Turn the computer off.
Turn the computer on, and immediately look for a message like "press F12 to change boot order", or something like that. Tell the computer to first try to boot from the CD-drive. When it boots, the installation process will start.

You cannot see HD because there are no apropriate SATA drivers included in windows XP CD. So you need to create custom windows XP installation CD

To install windows XP in that laptop u will need to create custom windows XP CD, how will you do that:

  1. Download nlite from http://www.nliteos.com/
  2. Download drivers for that laptop
  3. Download service pack 3 for windows XP
  4. Install nlite for windows XP and run
  5. Follow instructions and include SP3 for XP, all the drivers for laptop and create ISO Image
  6. Burn ISO Image
  7. Install Windows XP
  8. Good Luck

W200 cause a blue screen


First of all: If you install SP2 you don't have to install SP1 over it. It already did. Secondly, don't install SP3, it destroys Windows XP.
Try reinsalling the PC with SP2, install the drivers and do nothing else, see if that helps.

If not, by all means post back here,

How can i install windows xp sp3 in compaq presario cq60-104tu.


Ok it must be one of this problems:

1) you had vista, you wanted xp for whatever reason. you are doing a fresh install using the service pack 3 disk. there is hardware combatiblity issues and must stay with vista. this is becoming more common with the life of xp coming to an end.

2) you had xp and are reinstalling and hardware has failed.

3) you had service pack 2 or before and are updating your service pack and there is some issue with hardware or software.

I just installed a new motherboard and CPU. When I power up the system it is not detecting my HD.


Hi fyrefly, I'm guessing the hdd is connected to, SATA1 port on the MB & the hdd is also listed in the boot menu! (So it should load).
If not check it. Make sure it is. You mentioned above you have Win XP w/SP3 installed. That is very tough to imagine, unless you had the hdd installed on your old board when you updated it to SP3.
If I'm correct you need to do a fresh install of windows on the hdd. Windows can see all the old drivers & hasn't a clue what to do with them. So it sends you to safe mode. I can understand that you do not want to loose your personal data. The best way to not loose your data would be to hook up your old board with the hdd. Add a second SATA or PATA drive to the system & copy & past all your personal data to the SATA or PATA slave drive. Here is a list of what you need to back up.
C:\Documents and Settings\ User name\Application Data\Microsoft\Address Book
C:\Documents and Settings\ User name\Desktop
C:\Documents and Settings\ User name\Favorites
C:\Documents and Settings\ User name\Local Settings\Identities
C:\Documents and Settings\ User name\My Documents
Data from any program you may have installed.

Once the data has been copied to a slave drive you can put it back into the new Asus board. Boot to the windows CD & format the hdd & install windows. It's always recommended to do a fresh install of windows when upgrading to a newer board. There’s only one exception to this rule. That is if the MB your switching to is exactly the same as the old MB. You do not need to put the old mother board back into your case for this data retrieval. Grab a couple of books about 1" to 2" thick & lay em on a table. Take a static bag (Like the one that covered the MB & lay it over the books). Place the old MB on the static bag. Hook up your power supply, video, hdd's, keyboard, mouse & connect your monitor. Use a pen & short the power on pins coming from the MB. The system will boot. Copy & past your data to the slave drive.
(Data saved)! Re-connect your new board (still in the case). Boot to the windows CD, format & install.
Install your programs, printer & update windows. Copy & past your data back to your hdd.
Everything should workout just fine. Windows will be happy too!
I have done this more times than I can recall. Its time-consuming, I know but its worth every minute.

Good luck fyrefly!
If the suggestion doesn't fly, tell me why.
Thank you for using fixya.

I need to install drivers on an old HDD for an Asus K8V mobo.


Hi gordonal123, installing drivers through safe mode is not recommended. If you want windows to function correctly than do a fresh install of windows. Over writing the Gateway hdd will cause you more grief. Windows registry will go nuts.
Link to download the Asus K8V drivers.
http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us
Here is what you need to do. Boot to your windows CD while using the Gateway system & hdd. Create a new partition within the free space of the Gateway hdd. (Follow windows onscreen instructions to create a new partition within the free space of hdd). (This will maintain the current windows function).
Restart windows when finished. Windows will create a second partition on the Gateway drive. Go to the Asus link above & download all the drivers for the K8V MB, onto the second partition of the Gateway hdd. Once downloaded & uncompressed into their own folders you can than boot to the windows CD & format the primary partition & install windows fresh onto the formatted partition. When finished you can install the K8V driver still located on the secondary partition. Copy & past these driver folders to your primary partition. Than use windows disk management software to erase / delete the secondary partition. (diskmgmt.msc).
When finished you'll have all the drivers for the K8V MB, no need to buy a PCI LAN card & more importantly a fully functioning windows with-out issues.

Good luck gordonal123!
Take your time.
