The problem is most likely related to the North Bridge. You need reball.

HARD DRIVE NOT EXIST ERROR!!!


If you installed Linux successfully on your hard disk then the hard disk is OK.
If you are installing Windows Xp and it does not detect the hard disk but the BIOS detects the hard disk then -
The problem is that XPinstallation CD does not have a SATA driver, unless you have a SATA drive on adisk etc. and can install the driver when XP asks for a hard drive driver then,XP cannot detect the hard disk and therefore won't install XP.The FIX.Go into the BIOS anddisable the SATA drive (enable IDE emulation), this will make XP think it is aIDE/PATA hard disk. Then you can install XP normally. When Windows hasbeen installed then install all the device drivers (including the SATA driver),then shut down and boot up and got into the BIOS and enable the SATA drive.

How do I setup a dual boot for a PC with Vista and XP? I want XP to start automatically.My laptop is a Toshiba Satellite L355-S7915 that had Vista Home Basic preinstalled.


The first thing you need to do is repartition the hard drive. This will effectively erase the drive because partitions run below the OS level.

You create two partitions and then you can load each OS to its own partition. When the box boots you choose the OS you want to start and thats it...I think if you put the preferred OS in the first partition it will load that one by default.

You need both OS disks to do this so make sure your factory Vista disk works.

Computer dies at start up


Does the computer startup when plugged in? Try to remove the battery and plug it into a wall socket then turn it on. If it still does not start, the problem is not the battery. My initial thought if it's not the battery its the Operating System (OS) in your case Windows XP. I had this same thing happen to me last week after Adobe updated itself. What I needed to do was reload my XP OS. If you have the original restore disk that came with the computer, use it and reinstall XP. If you have files on your laptop that you need to keep and are not backed up externally, you will need to get those files extracted from the hard-drive before you reinstall the OS. This can be done by removing the Hard drive from the computer, make sure the computer is unplugged and battery removed before you do this. Take it to you friendly neighborhood computer geek and have He/She run the hard-drive externally to extract the files and place them on a disk or a flash drive. This is also a good time to have the hard-drive scanned for viruses or maleware so you don't reinstall the on the computer. Wipe the hard drive and start to reinstall. If this is more than you can handle, you can get someone locally to do the work for you and it shouldn't cost you more than $100.

I have an ACER ASPIRE 7720 with Vista. On starting the computer I get a message saying "launch start up repair" which tells me I need a Vista Driver CD Recovery Disc. I don't have one nor did it come with...


Hello,

Nowadays the computer comes with the Recovery Disks inside on the Hard Drive for you to Burn on disks. The options changes from manufacturer to manufacturer, but try to bootup in safe mode with F8 key and search on start menu for tools related to the manufacturer computer (ex. On some HP is START | PC Tools).

Check when the computer is booting for options of recovery before windows starts.

Beware, in most cases you can Burn the disk once.

Acer 7720 will not boot


Do you want to try and see if a 'Linux LiveCD' boots? This is the way I test if the computer works. You burn this CD to a disk, and then boot off of it when you're computer starts. I will not modify anything on your computer as long as you go to 'Try Ubuntu with out installing'

http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/download

Don't worry, I'm not trying to get you to install anything, just see if it boots into the 'live environment' (means you are running it off of the cd) If this works, that means that it is only your windows installation is messed up, and a reinstallation of windows should work fine with a Windows install CD NOT the recovery cd.

7720 will not boot


off course it is repairable dont worry look try to install OS thru the following procedure to factory default state

Acer: When you first turn on the laptop and see the Acer logo screen, hold the ALT key and press the F10 key (you need to do this before the Acer logo disappears).

if it installs the OS ok then fine if not

pls consider changing RAM take out from beneath the laptop open the cover all screws and take out the L shaped panel then u will see the RAM in front with 2 chips one uper and one lower side try to take out both and then re fit only one in the upper slot and then try to install if hangs again , then try the 2nd chip in the first slot and repeat the procedure if it works ok only try both chips one by one if it resolves ur issue and u find the faulty one replace it with new one with sam specs

in the last case if ur system still hangs then my friend ur hard disk is giving u hard time it needs replacement

when a system boots after bios loading all that is trf from Hdisk to RAM and then OS is loaded if one have problem system will hang or freeze try these solutions and then tell me the results

pls go step by step

and pls rate me fixya if i fixed ur problem

kindly let me know abt it and tell me in detail the messages u get and the system behaviour
