I think Vista might be a bit too beefy an operating system for your PC. If you dont have 1gb RAM minimum its just not going to be fast. You would be better off going back to XP.

How to boot with usb flash drive. detailed please, I'm trying to many diff ways nothing working, bios is the only thing on comp.


It is possible to boot from a USB drive....but only if the USB drive has been formatted as bootable, in the same way that OS CDs and DVDs are bootable media. You have to have an operating system either on the hard drive or on the flash drive in order to boot the computer. The BIOS is simply a "Basic Input-Output System" that interfaces the computer hardware to the OS, whatever media it is on. That is why you have to select the boot device and the boot device priority in the BIOS during setup, so it can direct itself to the bootable OS. Once you have installed an OS, then all will work fine. Until then, you will continue to have issues. Normally, with Window-based systems (you don't say what OS you are trying to use), you would insert the bootable Windows setup disk in the CD/DVD drive, ensure the BIOS was set to boot to CD/DVD first, and start the computer. The windows setup file would load itself and start the OS install process. It may even be necessary to partition and format the hard drive during this evolution, but the setup program would lead you through that as well. I have seen Windows setup files loaded to USB sticks, but they require a special process to generate so the BIOS sees the USB as bootable.

How to install window xp


Hi, you will need to set up your hard drive first. During initial boot fase press the F8 key which will take you to the BIOS. Select boot device and change primary boot device to CD Rom. Insert XP Cd into drive, select save changes and reboot. Select boot from CD when this appears by pressing any key. Allow files to install, when this completes you will need to delete any previous operating system, partition hard drive and then format hard drive. Once this sompletes reboot, ignoring boot from CD this time and XP will start to install.

My comp. was crashing at defferant time & message fault NTLDR


Use the commands
FIXBOOT and
FIXMBR in the
"Repair mode" of Windows XP installation or XP Recovery Console
for vista Recovery Environment or if you have recovery disk/disc you can use it

==============================

That error indicates a partition problem, you need to full format your harddisk and removing all partion and do a fresh install. Regarding your Win XP CD, just configure the BIOS to first BOOT to your CDROM

Hope this work for you ^_^

Start up error message issue: floppy disk fail


if im correct, you havent installed a floppy drive yet...
while the comp is booting press esc (on some comps its F10 it should say on the screen) and access the boot sequence..in there there is a list of boot items...they always list floppy drive as the first boot drive in case you need to recover your comp...remove floppy drive from your boot list making sure that your hardrive (C) is first drive to boot.
After you get your comp set up, you may want to change that sequence in case you ever have problems with your HDD

Just put together A780GM-A MOBO With dual processor amd and used my harddrive from my old system. It comes up to cmos setup, but it won't boot to windows. It comes up with the screen that ask you if you...


That mean you if you put a hardisk into the mobo but you never format the disk along with the mobo you need to do so. you need to format/install win xp/vista on the hard drive so that it can work with the mobo.
So here is the point, if you have a new mobo, whenever you put hardisk on it, you must format the hardisk with win xp/vista.

Comp doesnt boot after installing USB 2 drivers


Hi rogueonline,

Disconnect the external drive from the PC. (It's possible windows registry is messed up).
It sound like your windows system is a bit confused as well. First try resetting the bios. See page 9 in your manual. (Don't forget to set it back to normal). This should allow you to get back into the bios. Go over each setting & adjust as needed.
Make sure your primary hard disk drive is listed in the boot order. Advanced Setup Page 30, in manual. If your windows operating system seem is a bit off (OS not installed correctly or driver software not installed correctly). The over-all function of the system can & will run slow. If your primary drive seem to also run slow, the FAT or MBR can be slightly corrupt which will also slow the drive down including file transfer & eventually the drive will cease to function. (The drive can be repaired by doing a full format through windows).
Do a fresh install of windows, including the full format, (Not a Quick format) on the primary drive. Even though ECS does include the USB 2.0 driver so does windows update service. If your windows was all ready updated & you re-installed ECS's (2003) USB driver, that may have been enough to screw up windows. If you have data on your current drive & need to get that data off & if you have access to another system you can pull your drive & slave it into another system & remove the data. There is no quick fix. Play it safe. Start from scratch. After windows has been installed & you install the ECS driver software, update windows until there are no updates left. I'm sure your system will regain its speed.
