Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional With Servise Pack 2 (e8503040) for PC

1 Answer

2 hd Thanks for your answer very much. After I do this, can I plug out the old hd, or it can also stay there? What exactly have to be deleted? I have written there: [boot loader] timeout=30 default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(1)\WINDOWS [operating systems] multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect /usepmtimer multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect /usepmtimer I can put the value back if i want later? The 2 installed windows will not make problems in the future? I have an other problem now. I think I was hurrying a bit with it, but I installed the motherboard drivers and graffic card onto new hd, but after restarting the windows doesn t want to start at all. May I still ask for your help? Thanks

    How can i know which is dis1 and disk0? I Have to be sure, I will have my windows on my NEW HD.

    In BIOS, in boot priority the new one is on first place, the old on second.

    And I can t remove the old hd, because then after restarting it is written in black screen: Boot failure insert system disk and press enter.

Leave the other drive in; no the other windows will not cause problems cos its not set as boot 'C' drive, you can deletewindoes off the drive or format it within windows.

I don't think that the drivers you installed are the cause of the boot problem it may be the other drive, remove old drive and try again, but make sure in the bios (F2 or Del on boot up) it is correctly recognising the new drive.

delete this path:

multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect /usepmtimer

Windows 98se video drivers

not for 98SE i believe. a great OS but MS most likey deleted those from their servers long ago. if you can find someone else who has a system with 98SE you may be able to copy and install them from them. someone who is really old and smart "CE" maybe could program them:) for you but, you should have backed up your system and drivers before this repair was needed

How do i combine all my yahoo accounts to just one. over time i have created numerous yahoo accounts.and i just want to combine all my yahoo accounts to just one

You can import all the contacts from the various accounts into the one you choose to save. (See here.) Then you'll have all your contacts in one place. Then send an email to all the contacts from the various accounts, telling them your master email address. Don't close the old accounts immediately, but set them up to forward incoming emails to your new account for a month or so until everyone gets the new address and is up to speed. You might get some stragglers that weren't on your contact list but you wish to remain in contact with. You can also forward any emails or files you wish to preserve from the old accounts to the master account. Then delete them from the old account. Clean up the old accounts by deleting unwanted emails and files, en masse if neccessary. (Learn how to select and delete multiple emails at once using the shift and ctrl keys if you don't already know how to do so.)
Finally, when you're sure you no longer need the old email accounts, simply close the account as described in this article. and refer also to this article. As long as you maintain the master account, you'll still have access to email, but once you close an account, it can no longer forward email to you. It is permanently closed. So take it gradually if you're uncertain, just to be cautious.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Can deleted facebook messages from 6 months ago be retrieved


All over the world, in all sites and with all service providers, msgs are a private thing. Hence no one keeps a copy with them. And whatever you had you have deleted them. Facebook does not have an equivalent of Recycle Bin. Hence whatever is deleted stays deleted for ever. Sorry for the answer but you must face facts.

ok you know the manufacturer of the mp3 then go to there web page an look for tech support or might see the word download, select the model and the gb size your have because most list by gb size you will have to downlod to your computer and then plug in your mp3 player and copy them over like songs otherwise your mp3 will be rendered useless.
