The Asus n81vg notebook came with vista preinstalled. I want to remove Vista and install a new version of windows xp home edition. This is a new product full version purchased for this purpose. Thank you
Hello there. On Asus n81vg laptop how do I remove the vista OS and clean install windows XP home edition?
I am searching for some software that can repair registry errors opn my pc. I use windows XP home. I had heard of a few types of software for this such as registry mechanic but I am not sure.
I am facing a similar problem on my Windows XP Home Edition SP3.
The thumbails for all types of pictures are generating, but not for any videos including .wmv .avi .mpg. I don’t know since when this is happening, I observed this recently.
I was using Windows Media Player 11, KMPlayer v2.9.4, K-Lite Mega Codec Pack v5, Format Factory v2, Nero Vision (Nero 8). I had uninstalled these softwares and then reinstalled them one by one as I was testing thumbnails between every installation, but even though nothing worked out.
I tried to correct it by going to Windows Explorer’s Folder Options and the restoring the defaults and applying it to all folders. I cleaned my tracks, junk files, registry issues using Ccleaner & Wise Registry Cleaner. But nothing really worked out.
Please Help !!!
I’ve read and printed off several other responses but I cannot get PC to work. what of the following SPECIFIC Dell disks do i need to insert into the disc drive in order to get to the C: prompt (in order for me to type in "chkdsk /p" or whatever prompt I’ll need) OR for the PC to pick up on the inserted disc in order for me to pic "cleanup" or "repair"—>> here are all the disks I have: 1) drivers/utilities (diagnostics and utilities)/online documentation/phone tools/modem on hold 2) Application (ro resinstalling roxio easy cd creator) 3) drivers/utilities (device drivers/diagnostics and utilities/computer documentation 4) application (antivirus, support, multimedia and internet software) 5) operating system (reinstallation CD/microsoft windows XP home edition/service pack 1)
-When trying to read disc #1 from above, on the screen popped up: multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\windows\system32\c\……… over and over again with different endings.
-recently replaced HD
update after using luck disc #5: it said something like "okay, now you can press ‘r’ at the blank screen and start the repair" well, lucky me, i tried this and got THIS error message: "a disk read error occurred; press ctrl+alt+del to restart" when I do this, the screen turns blank for a second or two and then – in a brief flash – reads "NT detect failed" — i look over at the PC now and it’s just cycling in between the dell boot up logo, a blank screen for a few seconds, the "NT detect failed" message, then the dell logo/start-up thing….. it won’t stop cycling.
Last question: do computers simply hate my guts?
It doesn’t say what year it is when the program starts up. Is there any way to find out? Sorry, Im not so good with computers. Im trying to wipe my computer clean by reinstalling Windows XP home Edition and found an installation disk at work. But when I tried to install it it told me it was an older format and wouldn’t let me install.
