If you do not have a disc for your computer, you can purchase one at any computer electronics retail store in your area. It is a must have to start the System Software loading process for the Windows Operating System to be installed on a computer.

You can use a USB stick to load Windows but you have to have drivers installed and a good copy of the Operating System you are installing. It would be easier to just go and get one and then insert it and follow the onscreen instructions with the load. This way you will have a legal copy, your own disc and no future problems of lacking a good disc in case of a crash. Just a suggestion! Thanks for using FixYa! John

FIRST the short ANSWER; Open Windows Explorer and drag and drop files/folders to new drive.

LONG ANSWER; Connect drive,during boot up of PC, and ENTER (CMOS) SETUP. See if drive is listed.

If not seen by windows but seen by CMOS the drive must be PARTITIONED and then FORMATTED. OR

IF disk came with install CD run install to assure all needed USB drivers are present for windows to install disk through USB port.

Once USB drivers are installed reboot PC and see if Windows finds new hardware.

How to install Recovery disc on your laptop/computer


Formally, when you purchase a laptop or desktop computer, an operating system disc comes with it. But these days, such disc does not come with most laptop or desktop computer because it is already installed in them which is called recovery disk. This has a great advantage, because if it was on a disc, it will have a scratch and it cannot last forever because it might get lost or damaged. So, having it already installed on your laptop or desktop computer by your computer's manufacturer is a very good idea.

Most people are not aware that this recovery disc is on their laptop or desktop computer. And some might know, but don't know how to use or install it.

A Recovery disk is used to repair windows operating system when it has a virus or when operating system is malfunction. Reinstalling windows with recovery disks helps to recover your computer from any damage.

First, you need to confirm whether your laptop or desktop computer has a recovery disk on it or not. To confirm, click Start Menu, scroll to "My Computer" and click on it. Beside your system's "Local disk (C:)" you should find "RECOVERY (E:)" Click on the recovery disc and you should find a golden padlock with "RECOVERY" in front of this. Also confirm the and make sure it's is a minimum of 6GB.

Now, to install/run your system's recovery disk, go to;"Start menu" > "All Programs" > "Backup & Recovery" > "Recovery Manager". Read and follow instructions and you will definitely perform the recovery successfully.

Lastly, make sure you perform the recovery white your laptop adapter plugged to AC and do not run the recovery on battery. There must not be interruption of any kind in the process of the installation.

Good luck.

I tried installing Age Of Empires 3 on my macbook pro OSX. When the installation was almost done it came up with an Error Code 36 and then quit the installation.


Hello,

Make sure you don't have the hardware hooked up or have any programs or windows open, until you know that the software has installed correctly!

Insert your disk, Restart your computer! If upon restarting your computer does not detect the new software, than...

Go to Start, Control Panel, Install New Software! Restart again!

You may need to update your driver? If so...first I would create a back up on a disk or flash drive (cruzer) just to be safe!

To update the driver, you will need the software disk inserted, so you know which disk drive you need to update,.. Go to Start, Computer, Right click on the drive that shows the disk, select properties, select up-date driver.

Also,. FYI...Some Software programs require you to disable your virus protection, firewall, defender, to be able to install, whether or not, but especially if they are password proptected!

Try disabling your virus protection and select untill you restart, Go to Start, Control Panel, Firewall, or type in the search box...disable virus protection.

Try this and let me know if you need further assistance?

Kind regards!

Setup is locked, hoekan ik het unlocken om een verse window xp te installeren


OK ..you have several options ...First ..try to open it up ..and remove the bios battery from the main board..remember to also remove any other power source ..and place the battery back after 30 seconds..This will clear the bios settings and also the password..
If this will not work , you can try to fool the system by inserting the disk ..and start without the hard disk on ..It will take teh next option and will boot from the disk ..and you have to plug the hard disk on immediately ..It may work ..
If the password will be removed by removing battery ..than all you have to do is press f12 for boot menu and start from the disk and install .

Another way is to start windows installation from teh previous windows ..Just open the disk and click set-up ..or install windows..it will start from windows and after loading primary files will restart and continue normal ..
the last option is to remove the hard disk and install a clean operation system in another computer and place it back ..
it will work just fine ..but you will need all drivers for your computer to be installed manually and will also need to be made from a boot-able disk ..and not from recovery ..
Anyway ..try the battery removal and let me know what goes on ..and after that we'll see ..
please try to use English ..even if it is not very good...I will try to understand..

I dont know how to reinstall world of warcaft,PLEASE HELP ME


You have to start with disk 1 of the original WoW. If after you insert the disk nothing comes up you will have to manually go to your computer and browse the cd for the setup.exe. After you have installed the first 4 disks, then install the burning crusade set starting at disk 1 obviously. Once you are done, you will start the game and alot of updates will download. probably take you a very long time to do this. Good luck.

Can not start windows


A 0xc000000f error indicates a missing or corrupt winload.exe file.

You can try accessing the BIOS and setting all local disks (hard drives) to autodetect, which may or may not fix the error. (I can't confirm since I don't have Vista... Vista is as bad as Windows ME, people, do not upgrade if you have a choice... and you always have a choice!!!)

The only other option at the moment is to get a hold of an installation disk somehow. For that you'd probably have to take it to a local repair shop since stupid PC distributors have stopped shipping the installation disks with new computers.

You need the disk, it needs to replace the damaged files, Is this an XP system. Any disk will work to repair it but you have to have your Origianl to re-install completely.

Once you get one, I can run your through the system repair through Command prompt by booting from disk.

Let me know and good luck.

Disk drive cannot read DVD+RW DISK


Ok, your situation is very vague.  How do you know it's a program?  Have you run scan disk?  What kind of computer is it?  Is the hard drive the drive with windows installed on it?  If you think it is related to something on the disk then you might consider backing up your vital information and formatting the hard drive and starting fresh.  I can help you get detailed guides for that.  Also it might help for me to see a list of process running on your computer.  I know how horrible it can be when something is bogging down your computer I hope this gets resolved soon.
