You need a boot disk on a 3.5 floppy disk. load this disk, then start the pc. it should start in ms-dos. at the prompt=type "format c:" it will ask a series of questions, answer to proceed. i.e. y/n to format your drive. know that you will loose everything already on your hard drive. then using the recovery disk. start the pc and continue to recover.
if you don't have a floppy or a boot disk i can possibly assist with these as well -just let me know
hope this helps

    p.s. any windows 98 - ME - or other boot disk should do. as long as it loads msdos.

I have a problem on my computer i reformat my comp to windows xp sp3 but it dosnt have a sound ive tried to install real tech but it allways restart my computer what should i do?


try booting in safe mode. keep pressing F8 when the computer boots up till a screen with options come. select safe mode with networking. if it boots, then install avira antivirus(it is available for free download). seems like a worm/virus. if not i recommend reinstallation.
my suggestion with my personal experience is to get a clean new installation and be cautious about connecting drives/ network before a antivirus is installed.

For that you need to fix error on harddrive.
For that You can solve this errors with following 2 methods.
(1)When you power up the computer press F8 key then enter in safe mode.
Then if you are able to enter in safe mode then uninstall driver or software which you installed recently and face this error.
(2)If you are not able to enter in safe mode Then you need to fix error on hard drive.For that you need windows disk or recovery disk.
Boot your computer with that disk
For that when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 "del" key to enter in bios.
Then go to boot menu and set frist boot device as your cd or dvd rom.
Then save settings and exit bios.
Insert windows disk in cd /dvd rom.
Then it boot with that disk.Then you get this message "Press any key to boot from cd.."
Then press any key.
Then follow the procedure then enter in recovery console mode then type in prompt "chkdsk /r"
Then type "y"
Then it fix error on hard drive.
Then check if again you are not able to enter in windows then boot again and this time choose "R" option for repair previous windows " then it repairs old windows then it loads again old windows.
Let me know if you need further assistance.

Northgate not booting correctly from HD


If you can't get it to boot from last known config, safe mode, or anything else, you won't get it to boot from CD. Sounds to me as if the HD has failed.

Acer L100 comp wont start past the windows loading screen


Hi,

If I were you I would reformat your PC. In short words reformatting you Delete everything from the pc, the reinstall the OS(Operating System). Once the process is done, your PC is alot faster, and fresh. What happens to most people's PC it gets bogged down, and you go along time without cleaning it it will crash, just like a car.

There are hidden folders within the OS such as the prefetch where files are kept to help you boot problems faster, but the prefetch gets bigger each day, and isn't really needed.

To clean the prefetch you would go to Start>Run>type "prefetch" without quotes, once it opens the folder delete ALL files in it, a shortcut is to click any fil inside the prefetch, and press "ctrl+A" that will select all the files and now simply press Delete, and confirm Yes.

Something else to help maximize your system is to do a "disk clean up" access that by going to start>all programs>accessories>system tools

I hope this helped you maintain a better system in the future, if I were you I would go ahead and do the reformat then use the tips I just gave you to keep your system in shape.

Also another top make sure you keep your system clean of threats,(malware,spyware,adware,etc...) I would recommend Norton or Mcfee, I go with www.grisoft.com and www.eset.com, another one I like is www.trendmicro.com its up to you which you choose.

Good Luck!
