Question about Intel Celeron D 2.8GHz 478-pin 533MHz CPU OEM (CPUSKCD280533)
My new computer loads only to C:Windows/system/mup and freezes. Further checking reveals the message Invalid media reading C:
I figured out that the partition table must be fouled. When I put in my Windows XP home
disk it starts to load but I have no display.
It seems to me that the display in Windows XP must be disabled somehow. Even my XP recover disk when it loads has no display as the screen stays grey. How can I format this drive to reinstall the XP? Or should I just get a new Hard drive and start over? The computer is 6months old, 248mb ram, 2.8ghz hard drive. Last scan with Norton Symantec
showed no hard drive issues.
You may insert the Windows XP CD and reinstall Windows XP just to be sure. Follow the instructions on your screen and format the C Drive. Make sure you install all the required drivers to make everything work.
If you are optimistic follow the following instructions:
This will help you attempt to repair your system (and not via the Recovery Console).
Insert the Windows XP CD and follow the instructions on your screen.
Then after a certain point, you will be asked for three options --
1. Install Windows
2. Repair via Recovery Console
3. Some other option I don't recall.
Select the first option.
Then again, follow the instructions on your screen and again the computer will ask you three options.
This time select the second one -- Attempt to repair the computer (Press R).
This should start the automated repair process. This has been observed to work most of the time, but in a few rare cases it doesn't work. So I suggest you try it if you have the patience. ;-)
