I have a new Windows 10 laptop and I have migrated most everything from my previous laptop that I wanted and everything has been working pretty good up to now. I use Outlook 2007 for POP3 email and had installed in on the new LT and moved my PST and all was working good with email, contacts and calendar after much help from here: https://forums.techguy.org/threads/...le-on-new-windows-10-pc.1163278/#post-9186499. Yesterday I decided to move my iTunes from the old LT to the new LT and I installed ITunes and ICloud on the new LT and synced it with my iPhone 6. Thought all was well until this morning when I'm checking my POP3 email account. All my email downloaded no problem and I was able to read everything. When I went to send email I found that iCloud had emptied my Contacts and replaced it with iCloud contacts which essentially is the ones that I had on my phone. (My iPhone contacts are still there.) If I click the "To" field in the email it does bring up my outlook contacts that I had on my computer before the iCloud debacle and it does let me select them. However when I send them I get an immediate undeliverable message from system administrator saying:
The following recipient(s) cannot be reached:

I tried to do some Googling on this and found something that said that iCloud doesn't work well with Outlook. I also saw that people had problems w... Read more

Up til now, I have been happily syncing my iPhone4 and iPad2 with MS Outlook 2007 via my PC x iTunes.

Somehow, I recall choosing an option somewhere to use iCloud "cos it sounded OK" but now when I try to sync the devices on iTunes, it tells me that I cannot do this anymore as it is being done on iCloud and I will have duplicate contacts and all sorts of dire problems.

At the risk of being old fashioned, how do I get rid of iCloud and go back to the procedure first mentioned in Para one ..........?

I feel much happier with it and not having vast numbers of contacts, appontments etc. would prefer to leave iCloud out of it for the moment.

How do I do this thanks?

I wanted to get an opinion or a knowlege of what seetings the laptop needs to be, for iCloud to function properly? Maybe the settings on the other end as well, have to be adjusted to accept a PC system?
At this point, I am having screen resolution & color issues. Seems when I open the iCloud program, the screen switches & the colors & resolution go to a negative & cartoonish appearance.
Putting the feelers out there now.

I have constantly tried to solve my problem on my PC - running system Microsoft XP Pro version 2002 Service Pack 3. My computer also is AMD Ath/on (tm)XP18004. I run IE7.

I fully believe that my problems with my computers started after I installed SP3 a few months ago as one of my laptops has exactly the same problem as this computer - it has XP Pro same version and sp3 as above and same IE7 - it is an Intel(R) Pentium(R)M. I am on Broadband DSL with both desk top and laptop computers. I have a router Netgear.

There are certain websites that I can't reach, it comes back with the message that Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage - mostly when I try and click through from another website. I also cannot display any ads including adsense but I have javascripts enabled. I've searched for help and tried to solve it many times - in fact hours and hours have been spent on it. By the way, I also get a similar message with Firefox and Opera.

I don't have any problems with any of my secure sites ie Bank and google site for example, so not necessarily all secure websites. In the forum, I saw that www.cnn.com and www.fidelity.com was mentioned as possible problem sites but I could link to them no problem.

I also have another laptop computer which has IE6 installed and windows 2000 Pro - I have no problem whatsoever with that. I use a wireless connection with that computer. When I can't see websites on my 2 XP computers, I go onto my windows 2000 comput... Read more

A:Trouble with my XP since installing SP 3

Hello brenda and welcome to TSF,

The point about you being able to access secure websites but not other sites probably points to the certificate for the website it is looking for. No certificate no access? Can i recommemend rolling back and re-installing IE6 as a quick fix? I had a problem where IE7 would not load a hotmail inbox, i think there are so many bugs in IE7. I must admit my personal PC has IE6 and will probably stay that way.

Hey, I recently built my first computer and I'm having some trouble partitioning my hard disk. I'm new to the installion of an OS and any help would be really appreciated. I get the error message: "Setup was unable to format the partition. Disk may be damaged. Make sure the drive is switched on and properly connected to your computer. If the disk is a SCSI disk, make sure your SCSI devices are properly terminated."

My computer specs are:
EVGA x58 LE mobo
OCZ Tri-channel DDR3 RaM (2gb each stick)
Thermaltake toughpower 750 PSW
HP dvd 1270i disk drive
Seagate 7200.10 rpm 250gb hard drive

Any help on what to do would be insanely appreciated Thanks

A:Trouble Installing

Having a look around on Google, some suggestions have arisen saying that the drive might not be partitioned (which doesn't sound right to me, since I have built a few computers without encountering this problem).

In any case, you might want to test your hard drive for any issues. Download SeaTools for DOS (http://download.seagate.com/seatools/registration.nsf/eula/desktop, you have to complete the registration form to proceed), burn the image to CD, and run the tests provided to check the status of your drive.

Upgrading windows 98se to windows xp. It was a new hard drive that I installed windows 98se and decided to install windows xp home sp2 oem instead. I get to the setup screen that says This portion of the setup program prepares microsoft windows xp to run on your computer. I press enter to set up windows xp. Then the following list shows the existing partitions and unpartitioned space on this computer.
c: partition1 (Fat32) 29310 mb (28918 mb free)
I press enter to set up windows xp and it gives me the option to convert the partition to NTFS or leave the current file system intact (no changes) which then throws up a caution a\windows folder already exists that contains a windows installation and if i continue it will overwrite it. I don't have any files I need to retain as it is a new hard drive, but I am having issues. Once it installs the necessary files, I start getting
cannot copy the file: bootvid.dll
and then kdcom.dll
then c_1252.nls
then c_437.nls
then l_inst.nls
then vgaoem.fon
And on and on I guess if I continue. Please advise! I need this up and going today as it is a gift for my mother this weekend. I don't know what I have done, but I sure need some help. PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!

Thank you!!

I have an old PC with Asus p4s533x motherboard and hdd maxtor 120 gb with no operating system installed. My CPU was dead and yesterday I got another one. The problem I have is the following.When I tried to install win xp sp2 I put the disk into the drive and set the cd drive to be the first booting device in BIOS. After that it showed on the screen " ATAPI Boot from cd no emulation" and the line bellow "press any key to boot from cd.." So I pressed enter and proceeded to the installation process. I have done everything correctly - formatted the partitition,and waited for windows to copy files. After that the computer rebooted and after it started again I saw again the things I mentioned "atapi boot from cd rom no emulation" and press any key to boot from cd.." After I touched nothing and that screen passed nothing was shown on the monitor and I was not taken to proceed with my installation. The screen is black and the power indicator on the monitor is switching on and off like it has no signal. That happened with every 3 bootable cd's I have and I am desperate. Any ideas? Pls help..

A:Trouble installing XP SP2 on old PC

Just a guess, Sounds like the computer is not reading the cd player, Check your bios set up to make sure the cd player is set at ATAPI device, Another thing is this a original copy of XP or a burn't copy, Sometimes Burn't copys will do this. Hopefully this helps. If not maybe someone here will have a better answer. GoodLuck

I just purchased a new BTC 16X DVD ROM. Right from the start, it refused to work if installed on the same cable as my CD-RW. The computer would make it up to the Windows XP loading screen, but the screen would be very dim and the computer would freeze there.
I tried running the computer with just the DVD and everything seemed to run smoothly. I left it in this state for a couple of days while enjoying Sacred Underworld. When I decided to try changing the jumpers on both drives my power supply suddenly died--It was a crappy 300 watt supply.
So now my new 500 watt supply just arrived and I find that I can't get the computer to boot with the DVD at all. It doesn't matter if the CD RW is installed or not, or what position the jumper is in. The computer stops at a very dim XP loading screen.

Info about my computer: Mother board:Gigabyte GA 7N400S
RAM: 512 MB PC2700 (PNY)
CPU: Athlon 1.1 Ghz
Video: Asus V100 (32MB ram)

I decided to finally give a shot at building my own PC - everything was seemingly going fine until I got to the Windows XP Home installation.

I booted up the WinXP CD, partitioned and formatted my HD, and after rebooting it fails to load from my HD. It copied the Windows Boot files to my HD just fine though.

I've edited the BIOS and made sure that it is explicitly attempting to load my HD first - but it can't seem to find it. After faililng to load from the HD and CD it goes to my OnBoard LAN (I can disable this in the BIOS, but it makes no difference).

My HD is a Western Digital Raptor (37GB) S-ATA... From what I can tell this is a BIOS problem. If anybody has help they can offer me I'd really appreciate your assistance.

edit: You'll probably want to know that my MB is a Gigabyte K8 Triton (GA-K8NF-9, nForce4 chipset).

Okay so first and foremost I'm trying to re-install vista and wipe out my current hard drive as it has a nifty little malware calling itself windows vista recovery implanted in it. I've seen a couple possible solutions to try for getting rid of this trash but I feel the need to start fresh since I have a lot of programs I don't use anymore on my pc. I've also followed a few steps on wiping a pc clean but as it is with humans, computers are often completely unique so I hope to tailor this thread to my pc as much as possible.

Anyway, I put in my windows vista home premium disc and tried to boot from disc but don't think it did anything. I did setup the bios so 1st, 2nd, and 3rd sources for boot were all my disc however once I continued it just sat on a blank vista background halfway through startup.

What I want to know is if, for one, am I doing everything right so far to proceed with a full wipe/re-install and if not how so?

I'm at work at the moment so later today I can give definite specs/hardware if needed since I'm not 100% sure from memory.

Needed to REinstall Win7. So I burn an iso on my mac and put it in the tray. Reset boot priority to cdrom: disk boot failure.

I put in an old win XP disc that I know works and it seems to work fine. CD will work but DVD won't? Or something wrong with the burn? I have another pc and it seems willing to install from inside Windows. Made 3 copies of Win 7 and none work. The first I burned I think incorrectly by just burning a straight ISO. the Second and third I burned all the data on the disk right onto the DVD using Toast Titanium and it was a verified burn. USB key unfortunately not really an option at this point unless I can do it from a Mac. (I have my wife's work PC but it's locked down and the command prompt doesn't give me access to system 32).

I have two hard drives. A Western Digital 120 GB IDE drive, and a 120 GB Western Digital SATA drive.

I want to install Windows on the SATA (Master) Drive. When I go to install windows, It says:

Unpartitioned Space 114471 MB

I push C to create a partition, it doesnt allow me to choose which type of Partition. I can only choose the size of the partition. When I create it, it names itself Partition1 [New (Raw) ].

When I try to install windows on it, setup tells me that it is not a windows compatible file system, and that I need to remake the partition.


Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

A:Trouble installing XP

It depends on your type of PC but maybe you need a large drive enabler (or a Bios flashup.) It is a small routine to allow the drives to be partitioned, in fact it creates a partition.
This little program must be available on your manufacturers site.

I bought a Gateway DX4822-01 with Windows 7 preinstalled. The motherboard lacks any IDE ports so I had to buy an IDE-SATA adapter for my old 250 GB Western Digital drive from my old PC.

After plugging everything in, I powered up. With the device plugged in, Windows 7 takes longer to boot and when it does, it does not detect the IDE HDD at all.

I believe I may have to format the drive. The old drive still has XP installed plus some remaining files. Unfortunately, I can not do this with the Windows 7 disc as Gateway didn't include one. There's an option to burn backup and boot discs to DVD but I do not know if that will be what I need.

Formatting in the old PC is no longer an option. It's been stripped for parts and some of it already sold off.

Is there any chance to use this drive or should I write it off?

A:trouble installing a 2nd IDE HDD

Hi and welcome to Seven Forums
Do not write it off,im fairly sure can be fixed.
First,double check to make sure it is installed correctly.
Then go to control panel>system>device manager and see if you can see it in there.

If so,
control panel-> system and security-> create and format hard disk partitions>right click on the hdd >change drive letters and paths>add drive letter.

Then check in the devices and printers portal from the start menu.

Let me know if its possible and if it works,

I'll try to be pretty clear on what my problem is, since surfing the web has produced many sites with the problem and none with what seems like a correct diagnosis.

I'm installing XP, which i've done with this disk a dozen times before, and i'm getting the error "Setup could not read the CD you inserted, or the CD is not a valid Windows CD."

Here's how it happened: I'm redoing my main drive to increase my XP partition, and at that point i was not having this problem. I deleted the partition XP was previously on, as well as another partition i wasn't using. Then i decided i would just format the whole drive, but there were a few files i needed before i did it. So, i exited setup not realizing (duh) i had just deleted windows. Now, i've since comed to terms with that mistake, but the problem seems to be that windows wants a full version disk, or does not recognize the flawless disk that's in there.

The rub is that this disk is flawless, is "full version" as it's the only disk i've ever installed windows with, and neither the CD nor the HDD seem to be malfunctioning. Am i screwed?

A:-PLEASE HELP- Trouble installing XP

Have you tried installing XP from the your USB more than once? If so, does it always result in the same blue screen? Could you post the error code for the bluescreen you get? Maybe you can Google it and see what it relates to so that you will know where the problem lies since a bluescreen can be result of a wide variety of problems. Doing this would help narrow it down.

Personally, the first thing I would do is wipe the drive clean with a utility called DBAN. I've never had to downgrade my OS to a previous version of Windows but if I would, that's the first thing I would do to make sure the drive is completely clean and therefore doesn't result in issues when trying to write over it when installing the new OS (XP in your case).

So now I have installed the used mb and ram. It posted (I think) so I must be doing somthing right. It called to insert system disc, so I put my xp disc in. I was looking for the second repair option, not to repair via recovery console. I got to here: the following list shows the existing partitions and umpartitioned space on this computer. It showed unknown disc ( there is not disc in this drive) 4 times. I chose to set up windows on the selected item, but no item was selected, and press enter.

I am trying to install Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit on a new harddrive I have bought but when it goes to install it does the copying files (first step) and instantly goes from 0 to 100% and errors on the next step (expanding files). This happens to me no matter if I have the hard drive in the laptop it was meant for or another laptop that I use. I have tried multiple different ISOs with multiple different computers and different programs to make sure it was not my install disc. I have yet to try a bought DVD of W7. Does anyone know what this could be?

The new HDD is a brand new HDD with SSD 4GB hybrid and advertised to work with no drivers and they do not supply any.

My current assumptions at this point is that it still could be my install disc is corrupt or something. Also could be incorrect hard drive formatting or worse faulty hardware. The part that disturbs me is that I can not get it to install on my own personal laptop that I use.

Can anyone suggest anything? I have been told to supply the SATA drivers for the MOBO at install but that was a nightmare. I think the reason it didn't work was because the drivers were for XP or Vista and did not have explicit compatibility for W7 but probably still would of worked.

Any error messages? And what did you use to remove viruses and spyware, and what was you infected with? Have you ran HJT this yet?

Ok, I'm trying to install Windows XP on my laptop. I go through the installation, but when I get to the partitioning, it says "Unknown Disk" and on the next line it says "(No disk in the drive)". If I hit any key at this point, I go to a BSOD with a message saying "Page_Fault_In_Nonpaged_Area"I think it might have something to do with not having a SATA driver. I downloaded the driver package at: http://support.gateway.com/support/drivers...p;uid=215240538After unzipping it, I noticed it has two folders for floppies, and various other files. This laptop has no floppy disk, so I don't understand how I'm to install these SATA drivers.Thanks in advance,geoguroo7

Probably with an external USB floppy drive.

I recently bought 128 MB of RAM for my gateway at 300 MHz computer, which had 64 MB. I also recently installed Windows 98 second edition. After putting the RAM in, I got various error messages, such as Windows protection error and in valid VxD dynamic link to device number three. I tried re-seating the RAM, but I keep getting error messages. I can't get back into Windows. When I take the new RAM out again, it works again. Can anyone please offer any suggestions? Thank you.

i've been cursing the intel gods all day due to not being able to integrate my phone with my internet services . All of this due ( I believe) to one file missing. The msodisup.vxd. The people at miscrosoft say that they no longer offer support for my outdated system. I would put it back into the computer if I had the software, however, since the computer was a recent gift, I don't have it. I have no idea where to get the software since it is an obsolete version of windows, and I am sure that it is no longer on store shelves.

My question is this, Is it feasibe to install a different version of windows over this one? And if so, which version would be optimal on this outdated machinary?

And while I'm at it, can you tell me why the scroll bar and the words that I type take sooo long to catch up with what I'm doing?It takes me three hours to read one email..It's really getting on my nerves. By the way, I think that I should mention that this problem has only started recently.The scroll bar and typing thing only happens on the 'net. And at it's worst in my email.

I have an MSI 845 Ultra series mother board and I already have 128 mb DDR ram in there. I bought another 512 chip and put it in, but the computer just wouldn't start. I tried many different slots and combinations with this one in that slot and that one in this slot, but I either got to the windows screen and the computer would shut off, or I got a message saying I was missing some file.

I tried the 512 chip on its own and first it gave me the WinXP blue screen of death, then I changed slots and it kept turning off again.

WHat shuold I do? Thanks

I've put this in this forum but it's related to an XP problem so it's a bit of both.

Last week my computer finally gave up the ghost - near as I can figure through limited info, the boot manager is corrupted.

Long and short of it is that I now cannot load my PC at all - it will go as far as the options screen for safe mode, last known config etc, then to the loading screen then it restarts itself. If I do nothing it will go through this circuit ad infinitum.

Today I have received a new copy of windows 7 - the intention was to install this and format the drive to wipe everything previous (all my files are on external hard drive and there have been a lot of probs with my XP that I haven't been able to remedy).

On trying to install windows 7 I get the 'missing CD/DVD drivers' message that lots of people have had trouble with - I've tried downloading the up to date drivers for my DVD rom on a USB pen disk but it wouldn't pick them up. The only option I have as far as downloading anything is to fetch it via a friend's lap top - I literally cannot access my own desktop at all under any option.

What can I do? My puter is old - 2002 ish - it's a Cybercom but not sure on the model at the mo. I'm not PC illiterate by any means but my knowledge is limited when it comes to problems like this!

i have had this problem for some time now and still can't solve it. i figured i'd register and ask the experts. the ONLY reason i want to use wmp11 is for the file sharing with my xbox360. winamp remote is ok, but i prefer wmp11. i have had it working before,but rebuilt my comp and now i get 3 errors.

WMP has encountered a problem and needs to close.

microsoft WMP setup utility has encountered a problem and needs to close

the 3rd error is a drwatson postmortem debugger error

what's causing this and how the heck can i fix it?

my media library loads onto winamp with no problems, if that helps.

A:trouble installing WMP 11

Hi BCUZICN and welcome to TSF !

What do you mean by "rebuilt my comp" ? Do you mean you reinstalled XP from scratch ? If that's the case you may need to reinstall all the latest critical updates from windows update and the latest drivers for your system.

Have you tried rolling back to WMP10 (or even WMP9) and reinstalling WMP11 ?

Do you have an XP SP2 CD ?

I'm trying to reinstall Windows XP and when it loads a few things into memory it just shuts the entire computer off. It loads about 15 or so files and then shuts down. I reformatted my Hard Drive previously and am wondering whether it is a hardware problem or something in the bios. Can anyone give me ideas of what I can do to fix the problem.

A:Trouble Installing XP

Update: Now it doesn't load any files and cuts the power. Also previously the computer was slowing down a bit when I can normally could run several programs at once without a problem but 3 was making it lag very bad.

Hello all. I am brand new to this sight and am in need of help.

Built new box yesterday. BIOS is recognizing all drives. Put Win XP pro in DVD-R and am told to reboot and select proper boot device. Have been through BIOS, can't understand why this happening. It's so frustrating to stall this far along in the build.

Please help

A:Trouble Installing

Did you change the boot order in the BIOS to boot to the CD first?

Hi all.

I recently(last thursday) formatted my hard drives and attempted to reinstall Windows XP (Home) but haven't had any luck.
I'm running on an Asus P5N-E SLI motherboard, Intel core2duo e6300 CPU, an XFX 7900 GS video card, a generic DVD/CD drive, and have 2 hard drives- a 60gb Hitachi and a 200gb Maxtor (both IDE).

I have formatted and re-installed XP a few times onto my PC, so I know how it should go, but this time it's not working. I've run into a slew of different problems throughout the past week, ranging from an inability to find a partition(couldn't open drive multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)) to an NTLDR error...

But in the past 2 days I've been getting to the XP install screen (This guy) and it gets to 33 minutes remaining, and then the interface goes away, I get a friendly blue screen(not of death, yet) and it tells me that it can't load an installer for XYZ

Then, it goes to a BSOD about Kernel_Data_Inpage_Error. The error is..
*** STOP: 0x0000007A (0xE11ABB9C, 0xC000000E, 0xBF8AFA02, 0x28985860)
*** Win32k.sys address BF8AFA02 base at BF800000

Putting the hard drive into a different rig(an old dying Dell, from which I'm posting at the moment), I can install XP perfectly fine, and it will boot up nice. Sticking it back into my own rig, it goes through troubles again.

Any ideas? I've got up-to-date BIOS, and they're reset to default settings.. I&... Read more
