You will need to run "startup repair" if you can borrow a copy of a XP DVD (any copy will do ) then you can also run the repair you will need to boot from the CDRom drive with the disk in, may have to set BIOS to boot from CDRom first, go past the language screen then select the "repair option" use startup repair. If you cannot get a download of the repair or a copy of XP then boot your computer and press F11 then select "advanced" hit the alt + D key at the same time this will give you a command prompt. Type the following two commands at the prompt pressing enter after each one. Reboot to take effect:- bootrec.exe /fixboot bootrec.exe /fixmbr
I would say that windows is missing the codecs to play your cd. You can get the codecs by running windows update by right clicking on computer and then properties. and then click on the windows update and click get updates now.
An easier solution would be to download vlc player. It will play any file and cd or dvd. just google for vlc media player and download it and open the cd with VLC
You need to reset the photo frame with a toothpick in the small hole and then reboot your computer in safe mode. From safe mode run in windows compatability mode as windows XP. I have just had exactly the same problem. DPFmate will not run in 32 bit or 64 bit.
Well, maybe I can try, thus in your bios setting you can boot using usb cdrom? Or maybe its time to change your cdrom drive already. If you can borrow a good spare cdrom. Take this in for the meantime in exchange for your installed cdrom. Maybe your cdrom drive is faulty. Then if this is ok, it is now easy for you to get on.
Second option, you can take out your harddrive prime it, then have a partition (say d:\) with a copy of full copy of xp installer, and other important installer just have it foldered. Then I assume you can boot using a floppy drive with win98 rescue disk. After booting goto harddrive partition with xp installer. then click setup and set it up in c:\ . Then your go other software, installed it manually.
I do this coz it much faster to installed using harddrive and also it is only in xp.
try to go to bios and load bios defaults, esc then save and exit. boot from the cdrom by, tapping on F12 at dell screen. at boot menu screen, choose cdrom, press enter, when you see the message, PRESS ANY KEY T5O BOOT TO CDROM, hit any immediately, that should allow you to install xp directly from the cdrom.
That error message means. You must have tried to boot up to a floppy diskette. The diskette ( 's ), were made with a defective floppy drive.To re-download the Setup Disks for Floppy Boot Install of Win XP click the link below: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=E8FE6868-6E4F-471C-B455-BD5AFEE126D8&displaylang=en
