Q: windows XP install problems... major help needed, about to throw down with my comp

any ways, i did a self build, and everything is running smoothley up until i get to copying files to hard drive, it's doin its thing then it just turns the screen black. the computer itself is still running though. its not the memory, because i had it exchanged for another, and its not the hdd because ive tried 2 brand new ones, one seagate 320 gig and the other a 160 WD. i have an AMD X2 3800+, a gigabyte MB(dont know specs) a PQI Turbo 1GB memory single stick. and a XfX 7600 GC...I NEED HELP. not even the folks at the geek squad could tell me what was wrong

Preferred Solution: windows XP install problems... major help needed, about to throw down with my comp

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.)

A: windows XP install problems... major help needed, about to throw down with my comp

i did't understand exactly what you are talkin' about but i'll give a try.
after copying files your pc goes at stand-by mode?chech out the power options ata control panel.increase the time that pc waits before go at stand-by mode (or hibernation)
also increase the time for HDD shut-down etc

Waiting this long, trying to fix the problem will probably only create more problems. Re-install windows is your easiest option if you don't know a lot about how windows operates. (registry,etc.)

Seems that I have had some bad luck as of late. Recently all sorts of little things seem to be going wrong on my system and its really got me down. I will start with some background so some of you genious' might have a clue as to what has happened.

About 3 weeks ago my mouse started acting up. Not being able to remember that "click and drag" was enabled. I kept having to go in and re-enable it. I updated the driver and that seemed to fix it. This all seemed to happen after I used Microsofts Update page to get some critical updates including the March malicious software removal tool.

Now two days ago I could click on "my computer" and both my C:/ and my D:/ drives and last night my D drive was MISSING! I contacted Dell and it took about an hour of restarts and loggin back into their support chat but I got it fixed. I had to delete my "upper and lower filters" using regedit.

Now tonight when I go to burn a CD my software (sonic record now Version 6.5.3) gives me a popup window saying that "No compatible Recordable or Rewritable devices could be found on your system." but I know that is BULL as I have used it before to burn cds.

Also, this is a private computer. NO one else uses it so I dont have and never wanted to have any sort of password to log in, turn on, etc etc. But now when my computer comes back from my screensaver or standby it asks for a password. It says my name and the password field is empty. I click OK and the sys... Read more

Hey all!

I have a Z510 Samsung phone and a 80gb 512ram computer. I recently got the internet back on and wanted to connect my phone to the computer to download some pictures from it. I went to connect my phone to the computer however the program didn't work so I deleted the program and reinstalled it and it still won't work. I have tried numerous USB ports and nothing will work. It's driving me insane as the pictures I have on my phone are very important to me.

It used to work perfectly fine before and now it's giving me a lot of hassles does anyone know what could be going on or have any ideas of what I can do to fix this?

Thanks in advance!

First of all, hello everyone!

Alright here is the problem, yesterday I got bombarded with spyware and viruses which I believe was a result of me trying to set up an FTP. Now this is not just a problem of a few spyware programs here and there; my computer is now full of trojans, spyware, adware and viruses and I think I have the Blaster Worm again! I managed to get rid of most last night before calling it a day but when I woke up again this morning it was back to Square 1.

So, once again I started removing all the crap and I installed Norton Antivirus 2006 (stupid of me) and this caused an even bigger problem. Long story short, now my computer turns on but I cannot get anything to work; reformatting is a last-ditch effort as I have a lot of files that are not backed up! I tried deleting regestries and the lot but nothing is working! I've been trying to fix this problem since 10:00 am and could really use a break and some help.

Sorry about the long post but does anyone think they can help?! Some of the stuff:


I think Norton Antivirus is causing the most problems and I want to remove it but the thing is that I can access Control Panel but after the "Add and Remove Programs" option doesn't work. If I press the shutdown button everything comes up for a second and then shuts down.

Cutting straight to the chase here.Problems started occurring when i downloaded a game off the internet at 11 pm on December 26th. Double clicked on .exe file and computer exploded with virus quarantined popups. Manually deleted 8 viruses and computer operated normally for 2 days. yesterday, i played a game on my cp for a while, looked at some stuff on the internet, then turned off my wireless card and left my computer for 3 hours.Some time while i was gone a virus was found and quarantined. file name was something to the extent of A0003211.sys i believe, though i'm not sure, as i cleaned/ removed. Computer started telling me it did not have the system resources to do anything. Not open internet explorer, not open my computer, could not do anything, not even ctrl+alt+delete. I restarted it, it told me three times that the system had recovered from a serious error. I ran a COMPLETE virus scan with PC-cillin Internet security 14 (installed when i purchased my Dell Inspiron 1501 laptop pc) the scan found nothing, ran a windows security check and a spyware scan, both found nothing. A friend of mine suggested running a registry cleaner, so i ran RegSeeker (program my buddies swear by) after detetecting many registry errors, the computer blue screened stating the operating system needed to be shut down to prevent damage to the pc. restarted pc. i removed and reinstalled PC-cillin to see if this was the problem.

I'm typing this on a borrowed computer, so I'll make it short.

I tried to switch from my old CRT monitor to a LCD, but when I booted windows afterwards, the desktop was empty. No taskbar, no icons, no ability to right click. Just wallpaper and cursor that can move all over the empty screen. I don't know how the monitor switch could trigger such a change, but I suppose it could be a video card reaction. The taskbar is not hidden on the sides of the screen, and the mouse stops at the edge (Where you can see just one pixel), so it really is the extremity of the screen.

Safe mode just gives me the same problems.

Can anyone tell me how I can access the data on my hard drive? I'll be fine as long as I can recover my documents. Help is greatly appreciated.

A:Major Windows XP Help Needed

Did you try switching back to the monitor? What happens?

You say you have no ability to right-click? Did you add any programs or hardware OTHER than the LCD?

Do you run antivirus and antispyware programs and are they up to date?


Also, if you hold CTRL and hit ESC (while holding CTRL), does that bring up the START menu?

My system is as follows :

asus p5n32-sli se deluxe motherboard
4 gig ddr 667 ram

Whenever i install it goes past the completing install stage and then after reboot loads the moving bar. After this i get a black screen with a dashed white line (--------), at least thats what it looks like. When i boot into safe mode it seems to die on crcdisk.sys. I've read reports of people with another asus board and the same card having problems installing. Asus also said on their forums to one customer that he could order a vista support cd as they are not making vista drivers available for download. I think this is ridiculous for a 6 month old board and will not be buying asus again.

Does anyone know how i can get vista to install? I am currently thinking i'll have to buy a new motherboard, graphics card or both. Which is not fun, as the pc is only 6 months old.

A:Major install problems

Make sure you have the latest BIOS, then go into the BIOS setup and enable "Memory Remap Feature", which you'll find under Advanced > Chipset. No need to reinstall Vista, just boot it up and with a bit of luck you won't have the problem any more.

I have a HP Pavilion (H8-1000z, Intel Pentium 2.90GHz, 4G of Ram, 64-bit OS) computer that is running Windows 7 Pro SP1. I have been working fine on this computer until last night when I received a notification for windows update. I selected the security updates (forgot which one, but my computer is always up to dated), and an optional (I cannot remember which optional, but I thought it was pertaining to my computer). I started the updates and restart my computer. I noticed that the updates were failing (on the blue screen that displays the percentage of the updates installation before booting back into OS), and it restarted twice and finally I was able to access my OS, but all my services and Internet connection would not run or connect. I tried to start it, but I was receiving an error message. I noticed that my windows theme was changed to Windows Classic, and I could not change it. I tried to perform system restore, but I received an error message about volume shadow and check my application log. I tried to access my event logs, but couldn't access any administrative tools. I contacted Microsoft Support (the worst thing that I have done at least I was booting into my OS, and now I am in the safe mode loop). He had me to go to msconfig and changed my boot option to safe mode, minimal services, and networking. After I reboot, I could not boot safe mode.

A:Solved: Major Help is Needed!!! Windows 7 Pro

After being up for 1 1/2 days with limited rest, I got my issue resolved. Thank you Jesus!!!!

Fix: Press F8 and selected each item in the list until I got one to work. When I selected Directory Services Restore Mode, it booted into safe mode, but instead of BSOD it just hung on the screen (see my image 3) displaying Directory Services Restore Mode. I waited patiently until I heard the audio from my computer (windows sound). I noticed that I was able to log into Safe Mode (Directory Services). I had a message displayed on the screen that my system was restored from 01/08/14. I guess System Restore was still working although I was receiving error messages. I checked to see if there were any conflict issues, but there were not any. I removed the safe mode option (msconfig), and I was able to boot up successful in my OS with everything working.

Here is what I am running right now (stripped down):
Soyo SY-P4I875P DRAGON 2 v1.0 Black Label MOBO
Intel P4 3.0 HT
OCZ DDR2 512mb stick
Maxtor 160 HD (IDE)
Sony DRU-700A
Here is the problem..... When I try a fresh install (have used XP SP1, SP2 and Win 2k) I format the drive. The setup starts copying files over and then it gets stuck. The OS gives me the option of "enter" to retry, "ESC" to skip file, etc. Well if I hit enter it may or may not finally get the file copied over. If it does finally copy over then it will usually copy over abunch of files and then hang on another file. I have not been able to get past this part of the install. There is typically no consistancy as to which file is freezes on.

I have tried removing and replacing all the hardware listed above except for the P4/MOBO. Tried different HD's and CD/DVD's as well as trying SATA mode as well. No luck.

Does this seem to be a software issue or hardware issue?

Any help is appreciated!

A:Major install problems with xp and 2000

Typically that indicates faulty RAM, as nothing stresses RAM like installing an OS.

But from what you suggest you have tried replacing it?

So it could then point to a motherboard issue to do with RAM addressing?

Ok, so quick run through of what's happened the past few days. I have a Sony VAIO EB series; great computer. It came pre-installed with an OEM version of 64-bit Windows 7. It ran great, and I had to be an idiot and create a new partition on my hard drive and dual-boot Windows 8. Eventually, it got to a point where the system would only let me boot into Windows 8, and I ended up losing 7 completely (I did use a data recovery program to recover files from the 7 partition, however). So I reformatted, and put 32-bit Windows 7 back on it, and since then, it's been a nightmare.

I'll start with the drivers issues. On Sony's website, for my system, the only drivers available to download were incompatible 32-bit ones. So I eventually had to pay $200 for a 12-month tech support program where they would install all my drivers, and place a HELP icon on my desktop so I could connect to them anytime I needed to. They actually seem very competent, but, this isn't working. All the drivers are correct, but my system is incredibly slow, hangs a lot, etc., especially to be a recently formatted system. If the computer goes to sleep, it refuses to respond at all when it wakes, forcing me to restart it. Boot up time is insanely slow. When I open a web browser, the first page it loads feels like it takes a month to actually load, but then after that, as long as I stay in the same tab, it works as normal. I have had my computer off for awhile, because it's gotten to where it's not worth it; but w... Read more

A:Forced to install 32-bit W7 on 64-bit machine, major problems

Is the laptop in question the one listed in your system specs? If so, then I think you were looking in the wrong place for drivers. I did a google search for "VPCEB390X drivers" and I found this:

Sony Vaio VPCEB390X Drivers | Sony VAIO Driver

It looks like all of the 64 bit drivers are there. I would do another install of Windows 7 x64 with your OEM installation media (or whatever disc you used when you did the install) and I would use the drivers available at the link I provided.

I also recommend going to a notebook forum to see if there is a list of "must have" software and drivers to get your laptop working correctly. Quite often laptop hardware is specialized and it requires drivers and notebook system software to work right.

Hi everyone!

I'm new to these forums and I really need help with vista. I have had no trouble instaling it in the past. But all of a sudden one day I chose to freshly install vista. So using the standard installation procedures and when I went to install my netgear usb wireless adapter Which used to work failed to install. I thought it was the adapter so I upgraded to a very nice d-link usb adapter...and that too failed to install. So I installed a fresh copy of so on he same drive and reformatted it and that worked just fine. So I tried reinstalling vista and of course it didn't work. So now I'm really confused and typing this on the only available Internet device which happens to be an iPod touch LOL. Does anyone have an idea as to what is going wrong? Btw I have an oem copy of vista ultimate x64 pre sp1. The netgear adapter was the wusb111 and the d-link adapter is the dwa 160.

I am very desparate!

I've been working on this for days now, reading alot on different forums and Microsoft support page about reinstalling windows because that's the point where I think I am. Think, don't know.

I cannot get past the BCOD. I've had a black screen too multiple times. No windows. Can't even get to safe mode.

I have an HP p6310y. OS is windows 7 home premium 64 bit.

I think the first black screen error message I got was something like:
Something is preventing windows from opening properly...

Sorry, I didn't get a picture of that one. Didn't think it was going to be a major issue at the time. I chose the option to open normally and that didn't work - kept getting that same white type on black screen error message. So then I tried the other option, which was to start windows repair. After that I got another error message:
Could not solve the problem. Hit OK to shut down the computer.

When I rebooted I now got the message:
Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. If windows files have been damaged or configured incorrectly, Start Up Repair can help diagnose the problem.

I launched the repair and got a message saying it was unable to repair (files? Sorry, didn't write this one down)

I restarted and got the BSOD with HP logo that gave me 4 options:
F10=setup, ESC=boot menu, F11=system recovery, F9=Diagnostic

I pressed F9 for diagnostic and it told me it couldn't repair the file. I restarted, go... Read more

I would suggest that you order recovery discs from HP - Obtaining HP Recovery Discs or an HP USB Recovery Drive | HP? Support

Hello All:

I am desperately hoping that someone on this forum would be kind enough to help me before I do something rash and throw my PC out the window. I've never posted on any forum before, but I'm getting desperate.

I have been having major computer problems lately and would like to fix them on my own since the last call to a computer repair dude resulted in a $100 invoice and an apparently still messed up computer. I'm no computer professional, but I'm no newbie either so I think if the instructions are kept simple I'll be able to figure it out.

Here are the computer's symptoms:
-It was infected recently with the Antivirus XP 2008 virus (pretty obvious due to the huge pop-up that wouldn't go away and it's take over of the desktop background). I think that I may have gotten rid of it, but I'm not sure.
-When I try to Google something (using either IE or Firefox) and click on the search results I am redirected to a completely different IP address than what was listed under the search result link.
-The mouse icon has changed from what we originally set it to.
-Whenever I go to our settings and check on the Windows Firewall it says that it's turned off - no matter how many times I turn it back on.

Hey all!

I need help with my laptop as i'm hopeless with such stuff. My laptop (running on windows xp - home) suddenly went bonkers yesterday. whenever i start my comp 2 messages will come up.

the first one says "windows cannot load the locally stored profile. Possible causes include insufficient security rights or a corrupt local profile...."

the second one says "windows cannot load the local profile and is loading you with a temporary profile..."

i tried to use the recovery disc to reformat my comp but everytime i will encounter an error message "setup was unable to create, locate or modify a critical file (c:\\BOOT.ini) needed to start windows xp. access is denied" and then it would just undo all the changes. but when i go to my computer => properties => advanced => recovery and setup i could edit the boot file

i tried pressing f2 to access bios or f10 on start up to try to boot my comp using cd but somehow the option is not available to me.

do you have any advice as to how to sort this out?

We bought a computer in 2003, Windows XP HOme edition.
We started to have problems, due to limewire. A relative told us he could fix this, and took our computer to his home. When he came back he had un-installed Windows XP and some how replaced it with Professional. We are now experiences probelms such as : Our computer is asking for genuine software, we have lost all sounds on the computer. I tried to re-boot it, did not work. We did not get a re-installation CD. Also I tried to change the product key back to the original found on the sticker on the computer but it did not work. If you could help in any way, that'd be great!

Hello all.... I'm new here ! I have run into a lot of useful advice here, so I figured this was the place to ask.

Here's the background... I am somewhat of a musician, and I recently got a new system to act as a DAW, and it came with Win XP Pro. I was told that this was going to be more stable for my audio apps, and I was pretty impressed (and Microsoft rarely impresses me). So I decide to upgrade my other DAW from Win 2000 Pro to Win XP Pro. Bad move. And this is where the problems began.... Here's the system :

ASUS A7V333 Mobo
AMD 2600 XP
2x512 333mhz DDR (?Winbond - thats what it says on them)
ATI Radeon 7000
M-Audio FW 410 Audio
Multiple HDs
(Maxtor / WD ranging from 60GB to 200GB) connected via the primary secondary IDE and promise RAID slot)
LG 52X CDRom
10/100 NIC

The install seems to be going fine, and when I reboot after its done, I get the dreaded INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE message. So I do some googling (thank god I have a few computers... I dont know how people do this when their only computer screws up like this !).

I check the HDs - chkdsk /p, /r, then I run the Maxtor utility. And no errors. So I do the fixboot, and fixmbr. Nada. So I run some dos based antivirus proggies - Nada.

So then I think maybe its the onboard promise controller (even though the C drive is hooked to the primary IDE). So I try installing the drivers (via the F6 option) - Nada. Then I disable it (via a HW jumper on the board) - Nada. Then I figure I might... Read more

Hi, i have a huge problem. Right now i'm using a double boot: Windows XP Korean, and Windows 2000 english. I only use Windows XP... but recently I visited a Kazaa site and ever since then, my explorer's messed up. Everytime I open a new window all these ads pop up and even when I try to "x" them they won't go away. It screws everything up. I've tried an ad blocker, I've tried a virus scan, I've tried erasing anything that might've downloaded itself onto the system, but nothing seems to work. So then I started using Windows 2000 but something's happened there too.
This is what I want to do: I want to refresh/reinstall Windows XP (I can't remember the word you use for this haha) and I want to erase Windows 2000 from the double boot. I have both CD's but I'm afraid to do it just incase anything goes wrong. First of all, the Windows XP CD is in Korean and I don't know what to choose... and also, I'd like to keep files stored in my F drive but resfresh everything else. I hope you're able to give me step by step instructions because if I have to call a technician it'll cost me too much!
PLEASE HELP it's driving me insane. thank you so much

Hi, I have recently helped a friend buy a pc second hand (I know, bad idea), and am now having major problems with blue screens of deaths, page fault in non-paged area, lots of really bad stuff. After searching through a fair lot of forums I flicked out some RAM, this has fixed it for the past week. Unfortunately it's beginning to crash again, and I'm reaching the end of my tether in trying to fix the thing, all the while getting angry looks from my friend. I'm hoping someone will be able to help, I will upload some minidumps and his system specs, hopefully it will be as simple as that.

Thanks very much to anyone who views/helps in this thread.

His specs:

Windows XP Pro Service Pack 2

I am having two really annoying problems with my Windows XP:
1.I can't use any of my user profiles without them freezing and running really slow.After like 5 minutes I am able to bring up task manager and it shows CPU usage at 100%,and I try to shut down processes which goes really slow,but no matter what I close it still freezes.I have 3 different users on my computer and we're all stuck!

2.I start on safe mode and everything works fine,but it won't let me open User Accounts under control panel.I double click it and it just flashes the hourglass icon for 1 second and nothing happens.

Are these two issues related?And if I could install a sound driver in safe mode so I could have some audio I wouldnt mind,can I possibly do that?

Hi, Guys!

This is my first post. And I'm really new to TechGuy.

English is not my first language so please bear with it

I don't know much about computers and windows 8.1 . That's why I really need someone's help.
I have really lots of major problems in my Asus Transformers T100 Windows 8.1 (TechGuy Detailed Info at bottom)

I cannot remember most of how I got the problem. That's why I won't explain because it would take too long and some details may not be precise due to long period of time elapsed. I just want to know the possible solutions.

~Stating problems~

cmd or command prompt missing, or broken (cannot be open unless at system advanced boot options)

built-in apps are missing or not working (shows a "x" mark at start and says "needs to be reinstalled")

control panel and all it's branches, everything connected to control panel, cannot be opened or to be more accurate it shows a blank white page.
(sometimes it says "failed to load page")

Change PC Settings cannot be accessed. (When I click "Change PC Settings" I go back to start. Normally If I press windows key at start it opens the Change PC Settings but it only shows the Icon and returns to start. Like it cannot load or cannot go into. Because of this many more possible solutions are blocked!!

I have a Compaq Presario that started out as Win98 but was upgraded to WinXP many years ago. Everything was working pretty good until I got a trojan a couple months ago. I was able to get rid of the trojan after many long hours and got my pc working fine again, however, last week my pc started having major problems acting like it had another virus: it constantly freezes for about 30-40 sec every couple minutes then moves on to let me do what I want to do.

I have run ClamWin, Spybot, AVG, Spyware Doctor, Windows Live OneCare and Registry Mechanic. No viruses/trojans found this time around, so i'm guessing my registry is probably screwed. I have tried System Restore with no luck. I have tried rebooting to "Last known good configuration" but this last time it didn't help. However, the previous time I booted to this option I was able to scan my registry and update my drivers and wow everything started working great in normal mode until I shut my pc down then back to same-o-same-o freezing. I disabled my wireless connection, just in case, and it didn't help. I tried to do a recovery to my system, but apparently WinXP doesn't like it if you only have the upgrade CD, so no luck there.

So, now that I pretty much have given up on trying to "fix" the underlying problems since I don't have a "real" WinXP CD (thanks to a co-worker who stole our only work copy) I'm wondering how much luck I might have reinstalling WinXP from my upgrade CD. I know abou... Read more

I've done a good amount of google searching and looking through threads but I can't seem to fix this.

Yesterday my laptop became noticeably slow. I thought maybe it was because I had too many programs open so I closed most of them without my computer becoming any faster. So I restarted my laptop. Upon restarting, I started having some weird problems. Firefox would not open, Google Chrome would not open, and then I got messages that said "VAIO Sat Survey.exe has stopped working" and "OOBEFcdRegistration.exe has stopped working" and then everything pretty much freezes up. I turned off my computer again but this time it sat at the shutting down screen for a good ten minutes, so I had to manually do it. I ran it in safe mode and it was still running very sluggish. I tried running a scan with both Bit Defender and Malwarebytes but both applications froze. I then tried system restore but it just came up with the message "System Restore did not complete succesfully" and it says something about not extracting a file in a firefox folder and "There was a disk failure during the restore. This might be caused by bad sectors on..." whatever it's supposed to say underneath that seems to just be whited out. I can't see it all. I tried uninstalling firefox and trying system restore again but got the same exact problem.

Any help will be greatly appreciated!

Right, i've got major problems, and i need help, fast, please. Currently, i am using a Live CD version of Knoppix, cus my XP install wont work, which i why i need help.

It all started Wed night, when i wanted to install a new all-in-one AV, FW, Anti-Spam & Anti-Spware prog from Panda Software. The problem was, the install hung at 80% for about 2hours, until i asked the computer to restart, then it sorted itself out and finished the install, asked me to restart, which i did, and everything loaded up fine. But when Panda did a self-diagnostic, it was having problems with starting the Firewall, and it said to restart the computer, and if the problem persists, reinstall Panda. This also prevented me from accessing the internet. The problem did persist, so i tried to uninstall and reinstall Panda, only it didnt want to uninstall, saying that it was missing necessary dll files. So in the end, i opened RegCleaner, and manually deleted the Panda reg keys, so that it looked like the program was uninstalled. I then tried to install again, after deleting all the files, only for the install to hang again at 80%, and only completed when i asked the computer to restart.
By this time, i was getting very pi***d off with the software, so i went to a mates house and dloaded a 15day trial of Norton Internet Security 2004, and preceded to install that. It installed without a problem, but i still didnt have internet access. I tried using my Cable modem on 2 different network cards, and ... Read more

A:Having major problems with windows xp

Read other 8 answers

I've encountered an odd problem... I had a computer with an unauthorized copy of windows xp on it, which worked great for the 30 days of trial. After a month, I attempted to install a different copy of xp on it (didn't do any formatting or anything). Booting from disk, I was able to do the preliminary stages of windows install, and then it needed to restart... so I restarted, it posts, goes through bios, and after a screen which said "Windows install is restarting" (or something to that effect), it instantly shuts off.

I found that if I didn't insert the install disk, it would boot up and get to the windows install menu (the one that takes 39 minutes, or whatever), and sit there prompting me to insert the install disk. As soon as I inserted the disk (ANY disk, actually... install, audio, data) it would spin for half a second and then instantly shut off.

I suspected either a faulty disc drive, or maybe a dual-OS-booting problem.... so I tried a different cd drive with a different hard drive (HD had data on it but no OS), and same problem.....
