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.

How to install windows xp in sony vaio vgn-nw270F? tia


hello,

I will explain the process for you.

First of all if your computer has some windows like windows 98 or older than you can install the windows by simply inserting the disc and choosing the drive and install the windows.

However if you do not have any windows installed on your system or you have windows installed later than windows xp and want to install another operating system than use the following method.

First of all,
Please make sure you set the boot-priority first.

- you can go into bios by pressing the F12 or ESC key on your keyboard or if the key is different keep in mind when you turn your computer on you should see a small line at the first blink of your screen telling you to press a key to go to bios.

- Thank once you are in the bios please check the boot section and there set the boot-priority and by setting i mean the dvd drive or the cd drive should be apprering on the first section which means that your computer should boot from cd or dvd so that it can read your disc before it reads your hard-disk. remember to change this setting back once you have installed the windows.

- please insert the windows xp disc.

- than press enter on the bios screen and save changes and exit

- you comptuer will restart and

- it will take you straight to the point from where you can install windows using simple few clicks you just have to enter the serial number and your name etc. and the rest computer will do it-self.

Please let me know if there is anything else i can help you with.


Thank you.

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.

Reformatting problem


Do you mean that you are re-loading windows? if you are when it reboots after re-loading and it says boot/start with cd-rom support do not press enter again or anything else for that matter because if you do it will keep taking you through the whole process again. Once it has loaded and reboots do not press anything it will start windows( even though it gives you the option to start with cd-rom support - just ignore it), itself and take you to the welcome screen etc... once this happens you can take the disk out.
