Re: reinstall windows xp pro
Ok firstly, you will need to get rid of Vista all together before you can Install XP, Use a partition program to do this, You can find a bunch just by typing partition software into google, Delete the main partition that windows is on, Then create a new partition, then format that partition as a Primary partition, I always use the NTFS format just for stability and it can handle larger files than a 32 Bit partition, when you have done that then you need to get a bootable windows xp and I think you have that if set up is starting but hanging. Just go through the windows setup and you will be done. BE AWARE that you will loose everything thats on the drive by doing this so backup what you want to keep before you start, Always an idea to get the XP drivers for the system as well, The Vista drivers WILL NOT work on an XP system
Hope that helps.

your ram may be bad but not fried so windows cant deyect it also may need to reset your ram aet in advanced setting ,although your system sjhould detect that and adjust so check system in control; panel see if its is matchiing ie .. if u put 4 gb ram it may say 3gb ,if it has 4 gb then yiur settings systems icon control panel double click avanced system settings click on it then click on advaced scroll down to virtual memory it should be for 4 bg. ram would read 4000 MB OR REAL CLOSE TO ADJUST IT,, AL;SO U MUST HAVE 64 BIT OS XP AND REINSTALL OS PLUS PICK 64 BIT DRIVERS FROM MANUFACTER OF PC TO RUN 64 BIT CANT HAVE 1/2 AND 1/2 [32 +64] DONT MESH FOR 64BIT...32 CAN HAVE BOTH NOT 64
Bios or windows? If bios, go into bios by pressing delete key at computer boot up. Then go to last tab and look for load default settings. If you are referring to your operating system. Use your recovery disk or partition and reinstall the operating system. Or you can try Control Panel\Backup and Restore Center
my dell optiplex gx620 is coming on but its not passing the bios revision or the boot up page i have tried every thing removing the small battery in the mother board unplugging the hard drive, i even busted the whole system and it still not coming on. i have triied sending it into safe mode and the 1234 light are comming on i have runed out of option and i dont know what to do.this all started 3 days when i turned off the computer tried to put it on but after it came on pass the boot up page the screen was blank
I tried numerous solutions for this issue and none of them worked except this one. I tested it with Vista Ultimate and don’t know if other Vista versions have the same drivers but here’s what worked for me:
1.Right click ‘Computer’ then left click ‘Properties’ to open up System window. 2.Click ‘Device Manager’ 3.Click ‘+’ on ‘Display Adapters’ and you should see the drivers for your video. Right click and select ‘Update Driver Software...’ 4.Select ‘Browse my computer for driver software’ and click ‘next’. 5.Click ‘Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer’ 6.Untick ‘Show compatible hardware’ 7.Select ‘Intel Corporation’ then select ‘Intel 82865G’. Click next.
This will install the drivers. No they are not the same drivers for the hardware but they work a treat!
