Preferred Solution: dell optiplex 330'window xp professional

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi,
We ordered and received 4 new OptiPlex 7440 AIO All-in-One computers without Windows installed - only Ubantu is installed.  The desktops do not have a built-in optical drive.  I get the following error message when I try to install Windows 7: "A required CD\DVD drive device driver is missing.”  I tried using an external optical drive and USB boot device to install.  I am also plugged into the USB 2.0 ports and not the USB 3.0.  I tried many of the suggestions Google has provided me, but none of them are working.  I'd appreciate any help.
FYI, I called Dell Support twice about this issue.  The first technician hung up on me when he realized he didn't know what to do to help and the second technician said I had to pay $89 for help.  When I asked to speak to her supervisor, she hung up on me. Since Dell likes to rudely hang up on their loyal customers, I'm hoping the community will be more helpful.

A:Dell OptiPlex 7440 AIO - Will not install Windows 7 Professional

I figured this out.  I added the necessary drivers to the boot file and I was able to install windows.

For some reason, suddenly the desktop has stopped appearing. This started a week ago after which I kept the computer turned off. The only thing I can do is start task manage (cntrl-alt-del). I navigated to the system32 restore folder and selected rstui.exe as a new task to start, but the computer didnt do anything except show the rstrui process in the tasks list. I was able topen regedit though, but I dont know what I can do to restore the computer to an earlier time or to factory settings.

Help please, what should I do to get the desktop back?

Hello.  I have many pictures is my photo gallery including scans, img and others.  Each item is assigned a number for example scan0001 and img001.  Lately pictures have been showing up in my photo gallery and are assigned numbers that start with B000...for example scan0001 is assigned a number such as B0001234.  Both the scan picture and the B000  picture remain in the photo gallery.  I have an external hard drive and thought that the B000 were backup numbers.  I have looked on google and asked the question about the B000 and have had no luck.  Can someone help.  Thank you.

I have Windows XP Professional installed on a Optiplex 980, all drivers are OK with the exception of one ""Unknown Device".
The Device ID shows "ACPI\SMO1200\4&4EC69E9&0", and exhaustive search on the DELL Support website - and Google in general - just got me to dead ends.I will appreciate if I can get some indication on getting the device driver for this device.

A:Optiplex 980 Unknown Device on XP Professional

It's the trusted platform module -- the security chip on the system board.
Since XP is a completely insecure OS (it hasn't seen any security updates in almost two years), it's a moot point - you can leave it without a driver, as any security it provides is completely undermined by the OS you're running.

When the PC starts up, the dell loading screen begins. Normally this takes around a few seconds but this time it didn't end. We've tried all the diagnostic tests and they all came back fine. Also tried disconnecting all external cables (ie headphones, ethernet etc). Powered on and off multiple times and no change. 
By the way, I don't know if this is related or not, but last night before the issue occurred, I was randomly logged out.

A:Dell Optiplex 745 - Windows XP Pro 32-bit Dell System direct issue.

The older versions of Dell System Detect are security risks - if you're running an antivirus program, it may be flagging and intercepting the program.  At any rate, you should NOT be using Windows XP online at this point, as it has seen no security updates in almost two years - you really need to upgrade to a supported version of Windows (at this point, that's a minimum of Windows 7).

Windows XP 32-bit will recognize and use a maximum of about 3.25 GB of RAM.

Windows XP 64-bit will recognize and use more than 4 GB of RAM.

Unless you plan to install it in a computer that has and needs more than 4 GB of RAM, use the 32-bit version.

You may also run into a problem with installing and using certain programs with the 64-bit version.

I am at work and my question is for the computer at home. I have reformat my harddrive and try to install win. xp professional on the computer. Turn on the computer and i am in dos mode. I put in the win. xp professional disk in the cd rom to install. The computer then goes installing, it starts by going to the xp setup screen, ask a few questions like Fats 32 and copywrite agreements and such. It would not go into the actual installation of the xp installation program where it would ask for a disk code. After the xp setup program, it then ask to restart my computer, which i did. After the restart it would ask to "press a key for cd-rom boot" and i did, then it would go into the xp setup screen again and the whole xp setup process would starts over again and then it would ask to be reboot again. Now during the beginning of restarting the computer, if i didn't press a key at that point of time when it was asking "press any key to boot from cd-rom", then it would give me this promt "NTLDR is missing press any key to restart". I then would press a key but it would not restart but the same prompt "NTLDR is missing press any key to restart" would appear again. I cannot do anyting at this point and have to mannually turn off the computer. I don't know what to do now?

Please help
thanks
 

A:need help in installing window xp professional

NTLDR is missing press any key to restart, your getting this error because there is a cd in the drive and it's looking for NTLDR file, which appears not to be on it. (strange)

go to www.bootdisk.com and download the six floppies for xp. Put the first one in your puter, and restart, run through all six, and then continue the set up process with the cd.

you said you reformatted the hard drive? I believe you have to set the partition first, then format. XP should do this for you, try the boot disks, and let us know if it works.

I have an HP Pavilion Laptop that originally had Vista installed on it, then it was upgraded to Windows 8. One day it would not boot. It would display a message that Windows was preparing to repair itself and then it would quickly flash a message that the PC ran into a problem and needs to reboot. Once it reboots, it would do the same thing again.

I backed up the data from the hard drive to an external using a Linux live CD and I ran some checks on the HDD. So the HDD appears not to be the source of the problem.

At this point I thought the best choice of action would be to install a fresh/clean copy of Windows 8, However, I am still stuck in the same loop. I turn the laptop on with the Window 8 disk inserted and press any key to boot from the DVD drive when prompted. I can hear the DVD drive spin up and then the Windows logo appears and the same message about running into a problem and needing to reboot appears.

I am really stumped by this one. Thank you in advance for any advice.

I just purchased a (barely) used Optiplex 960 from my office (my employers often sell used equipment to employees if they want to get rid of it).  It's in great shape, clean, and all the hardware seems to work, except for the fan speed controller.  I know it's supposed to adjust the speed of the cooling fan depending on how hot the CPU is getting, but it's not doing that.  The fans seem to stay on low / medium speed even when the CPU is pushing 70 degrees C according to Speedfan...which is WAY too hot.  The only way I can get the fan to speed up is by disabling the auto-speed control in the BIOS and leave it on 100% constantly. 
Anybody have any suggestions?  Is the temperature controller damaged, or do these systems normally run hot?  Thanks!

Hi,
Due to the location of my 580 I cannot press the power button. Various suggestion have been made re shorting the pins on the header but my header is a multipin plug and socket. I would like to connect a remote power button if possible, but do not know how to safely connect or where to connect the extension cable. Would be gratefull for any help.
