the convertion from ntfs to fat32 will result in loss of all data in the drive (all data from desktop,my documents, installed programmes.......). You can do this using your windows disc . Just set the primary boot device to be cd-rom in the bios,boot with windows cd in drive,then the installation will guide you to the insallation of a fresh copy of windows (there you can select the required file system).it is recomended to continue with ntfs

The easiest way is to boot the computer from a Windows disk. When you get to the screen that asks if you wish to repair using the recovery console, choose that.
When you get to the c:\ prompt, type chkdsk /f
Once this runs, your computer "should" start up. If not, there are other things we can do.

Okay, first things first- Pirated versions of software simply ain't cool, for any number of reasons (first being that using pirated software is ILLEGAL!), but in addition, most pirated garbage has all kinds of extra junk with it, like trojans, viruses, keyloggers, etc. which may be preventing you from installing a proper OS.
If you know what kind of harddrive you have, go to the manufacturers' site and get yourself their version of disk management software (usually a self-extracting .exe file that'll write to a 3.5 floppy). Make sure you get the version applicable to your particular drive. Make the floppy, and restart your computer with the floppy in your a drive, and follow the prompts to reformat the drive (bear in mind that you're going to lose everything on the drive). Remove the floppy and shut down your computer.
Next, restart your computer and get into the bios settings, and set your boot order to read your optical drive (CD or DVD-Rom) first, save settings, put your OEM disk in the drive, and restart- You SHOULD be good to go.
Another note: If your OEM disk isn't from the manufacturer of your computer, you'll still have issues, as OEM versions are coded for particular board/hardware combinations.
Bottom line- Computer systems are becoming more and more affordable, and using pirated software only leads you down a path to problems. Reformat your harddrive and open your wallet enough to get a legitimate copy of the software you want!

From what I understand, you want to make a formula in MS Excel which will refer to itself. This is not possible.

You can make a target cell containing the information you need (variable, etc.), and work from there.

You can also get additional information from the Microsoft site.
Hope this helps.

You can try also to do reformat your hard drive as fresh unallocated one before doing formatting again to install windows. And check your installation disk for scratches.

Hi. This adress (http://www.bootdisks.us/ms-dos/5/ms-dos-bootable-cd-images.html) contains a couple of ready boot discs. Just download them (.iso file) and burn them to a CD. Hope this helps.

The best way to solve this is to back up your personal data to an external source such as a CD, DVD or external hard drive, then reinstall Windows XP. The most likely reason for the slow start up is missing or corrupted Windows system files.

Please let me know if you need any further assistance regarding the above info.

the easiest way will be to uninstall IE7 and re-install it again. that will take few minutes and everything will work for you:

3. go to Control panel --> add/remove software--> remove IE7
4. install IE7 again

You should use Nero 6 or above version. It is very easy to use.
Just create an image of original disc and then burn it on the blank disc.The copied disc will work fine, I am sure.
Please try it.....
