    It would have to be the NT install, I just cant get XP.

    If u did find anywhere I could read up on this it would be great if u let me know!

    Do you think I could read enough to be able to do it?

    I quite fancy the challenge!

How user un-friendly is it?
Is what? NT or the XP install?

The XP install is pretty simple. My daughter did her own install the first time when she was 17 and even though she's my kid, she's not a geek by any means (if it's on MySpace she knows it inside out, but not much beyond that).
I even sent some basic instructions to my 78 yr old father, and he was able to do it.

The NT install is serious geek install. It even give me headaches.

I'll dig around and see if I can find a step by step for the XP install. I know they have some somewhere.

Gateway will not start


Short Answer:
Use a Windows recovery disc or installation disc to repair the system or reinstall Windows.

Long Answer:
In my experience, this means that the operating system (OS) has been somehow corrupted. There is a possibility that your hard drive has failed, but this usually is not the case. I would recommend that you first try running hard drive testing software from a bootable media, such as the ones that can be found on the Ultimate boot CD at 'HDD/Diagnostics' in order to verify that your hard drive is still working properly. The previous step can be skipped, but if your hard drive is faulty, then you will encounter the same problem again later. At this point you have a few options: first you can try to repair the OS installation with the OS installation or recovery disc. Another option is to completely reinstall the OS. The previous option usually works for me, but this will usually result in the loss of all your files; to counter this I would recommend a using a Linux live installation disc (such as Ubuntu) or Parted Magic (can be found on the Ultimate Boot CD) to recover desired files to a flash drive (Parted Magic should only be used by advanced users).

Seme olvido un pass woork


Step 1: Enter Safe Mode

a)Start or re-start your computer.

b)Before the Windows 7 loading screen appears, Press 'F8? to enter Advanced Boot Options.

c)Use arrows to choose 'Safe Mode' when you can see the Advanced Boot Options screen.

d)Press 'Enter' and wait for Windows 7 files to load.

e)Log on with an administrator account when you can see the log on screen

Note: Well, when you are presented with the Advanced Boot Options screen, there are 3 types of Safe Mode. They are the Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Networking and Safe Mode with Command Prompt, and the 3 options are all available for you. Here above we take Safe Mode as an example, but if you choose Safe Mode with Command Prompt, you'll need to input related to command prompt to reset the password.

Step 2: Reset the forgotten Windows login password in Windows 7

Now you could diagnose and solve some serious computer problems in the safe mode and reset the forgotten Windows login password in Windows 7 as follows:

1.Click 'Start' button, input 'lusrmgr.msc' into the Search box and press 'Enter'.

2.In the 'Local Users and Groups screen', click 'Users'.

3.Right-click the account that you need to reset the password for, and then click 'Set Password'.

4.Type and confirm the new password, click 'OK'. (You can go to 'Local Users and Groups' screen by right-clicking 'Computer' to select 'Manage' on desktop.)

Step 3: Log on your password protected PC again with the new password since you have successfully performed Windows password reset for Windows 7.

How do a complete factory restore on dell inspiron 1525 when after f8 it says unable to locate file?


Dell.com supply "rescue disks" as do many sites on the net. I think that is possibly the only way to go.
Errors on the hard drive possibly caused the error in the file system, or the master file table has been corrupted.
Hope it helps.
