Sorry , but no, the tone is a trademark, and is built into the program to play at start up. It will play automatically every time without any way of changing or disabling it.

Hello my dear i want install 1 hard disk 320 gb and after that install win xp on my qosmio but after start setup win xp show mw did not find hard drive. how can i repair this problem? thanks


In order to be detected the hard disk drive by your windows xp installer. You have to set your sata in your cmos or bios setup. When powering your computer tap the F2 key or Del to enter cmos or bios setup, go to integrated peripherals and look for the sata controllers. Most of the times if its configured as a enhanced the windows xp can not detect it. You have to change the settings to compatible mode. Please the modify key either F5 or F6 or PGUP/PGDOWN or + or - . After changing the settings press F10 and press y and enter. Then try again running the windows setup. Have a nice day.

ACER 5570 won't load Windows XP keep getting error


Hello shannon_enns,

You might need to go to your BIOS first. When you power on your laptop, keep pressing F2.

Once you're on your BIOS, go to the hard drive & choose "Compatible" since you have Windows XP.

If you have Vista, you'll need to choose "Enhanced."

After that, you may need to reformat your laptop one more time.

Here's a guide on how you can reformat your laptop,

Computer modem and dial tone


Hello Mikenrgrsvll

This problem can be due to the software not handling a certain dial tone rather than a specific hardware fault. Around the world there is a variance in the signal quality of the dial tone which causes a report of no dial tone detection. Disable the dial tone detection to prevent the system from trying to detect a dial tone.
Disabling dial tone detection for modems:
Windows XP
  1. Click Start
  2. Select Control Panel
  3. Click Switch to Classic View to change the control panel view
  4. Click Phone and Modem Options
  5. Select the Modem Tab
  6. Select the installed modem (Example: Lucent Technologies Soft Modem AMR)
  7. Click the Properties button
  8. Select the Modem tab in the Properties window
  9. Click Wait for dial tone before dialing to remove the check from the checkbox
  10. Select the Advanced tab
  11. Add X3 to the Extra initialization commands field in the Extra Settings box
  12. Click OK twice
  13. Select Switch to Category View to change back the control panel view
  14. Close Control Panel
if this does not work trying re-installing modem drivers.

hope this helps, have a good day.

Try to press f12 to do one time boot setup,make sure that the xp disk is inside and choose cdrom or usb cdrom device and keep on tapping enter, don't stop and dont mind the message that says press any key, wait until you see the windows is entering setup.
