    xp pro wont boot

    I completely agree with Sue, it does sound like the DVD/CD drive rather than the hard drive although in the opening line, it specifically states that `no hardrive can be found` which is always a bit worrying. Zoe, could you confirm what problem we`re trying to solve please ... Jenny

    xp pro wont boot

    In BIOS, set the drives to Auto if you have the choice. If the drive has suddenly shown to be `missing`, try carefully unscrewing the panel on the back that covers the hard drive, remove the drive, reseat it and try rebooting. As Sue suggested, if you still have problems, it sounds very much...

    Solved: Hard disk drive missing

    It`s nice to know you`re up and running again and as for why it went `missing`, we may never know. It`d be worth updating and running a full AV & malware scan just to make sure nothing nasty has crept into the system. If your problem`s now solved as far as you`re concerned, you should click...

    Solved: XP change screen resolution and desktop area on bootup

    Glad to know it`s okay now and always remember to click Apply and then Okay if the option is there otherwise it might revert back to the previous settings. Jenny

    Solved: Hard disk drive missing

    Welcome to TSG. To check for power, take the side of the case (if it`s a PC) and physically look at the back of the hard drive and make sure there are two cables (or ribbons) leading away from it. One will come from the power supply unit (power) at the back of the case and the other will...

    Solved: Advice for a new system build

    I`ll certainly report back as and when it`s up and running but I`ll be waiting until at least October when the 8.1 version of Windows comes out. You`ve given me the bug to dig deeper into CPU`s now and for a relatively small price more, the i5 4670K 4th gen Haswell looks quite a lot better than...

    Solved: Advice for a new system build

    You`ve changed my views of Linux and will certainly be looking into it in more depth as and when I get the chance and as for W8, I`ll probably be going for it when the 8.1 version comes out although I`m slightly torn between that and W7 as I know my way around that system but that`s something...

    Solved: Advice for a new system build

    Thanks for your time in posting the links, they all look good and from reading the specs, I`m sure they`ll do a damn fine job. My conclusion to the items you`ve suggested is that I should be looking for a decent i5 and upwards with, obviously, an equally decent motherboard to match. Linux...

    Solved: Advice for a new system build

    I should have added that nugget of information ... sorry. I`ve messed about with AMD in the past but I`m used to and much prefer the Intel route. Although it`s not particularly relevant to this thread, I`m currently running XP64 on a P5Q3 DeLuxe, Q9550 Quad Core with 16Gb DDR3 and I`m quite...

    XPSP3 Cookies

    Running a full and up-to-date scan as shadow suggested would be a wise move and it might even find some others that you`ve missed. Another option in addition to the scan is to try renaming them and /or moving them to say the desktop ... then deleting them from there. If it doesn`t let you...

    Solved: Advice for a new system build

    Hiya Guys. Rather than help, I`m in need of some advice please. I`m looking to build a tower system (as opposed to a laptop) from the ground up that`ll be suitable for Windows 8 64 bit but although I`ve dabbled in other systems, I`ve really been an XP girl at heart and I`m slightly...

    Internet Problems

    If I was you, I`d update and run full and uninterrupted scans of your installed anti- virus, malware and spyware and see if anything`s flagged up. It might also be a wise move to run HijackThis and post a log on here for one of the more advanced guys to have a look through. Jenny

    I`ve just tried the link that Phantom suggested and it works perfectly. That`ll be the way to do it. Jenny
