I have this old computer that I used to use before getting a new one and I have been using the old one as a "server" even though it isnt one. But I keep having problems with it, like it shutting off or rebooting on its own, and finally it corrupted config.sys. So now I have been trying for about a week to get the computer working again, but it keeps freezing up on the installation and not being able to copy files. Right now I'm about to reinstall it again so any suggestion, and should I format the hard drive or just overwrite everthing? Any help will be appreciated.

But I keep having problems with it, like it shutting off or rebooting on its own, and finally it corrupted config.sys. So now I have been trying for about a week to get the computer working again, but it keeps freezing up on the installation and not being able to copy files.

First of all check the hardware itself before starting anything. Since it is an old computer make sure that everything (cards, cables etc.) are attached firmly and nothing is loose. Then check the case inside for dust. After some time the case inside can become pretty dusty which could cause a lot of problems and "freezing" of the OS and overheating of hardware could be some of them.

Right now I'm about to reinstall it again so any suggestion, and should I format the hard drive or just overwrite everthing? Any help will be appreciated.

Since there were previous problems with OS it is always wise to perform full format of the hard drive.

One question though. You said it was an old computer. What are its specs? Some "old" computer are unable to run XP.

katmandoo
13-12-06, 23:12
It isnt ancient or anything at the most 5 years old and there isnt that much dust in it because i just cleaned it out about a month ago or less and all the cables are connected firmly, also I have 2 hard drives and I've tried to install it on both and I forgot to mention that it has been running on xp for 3 years and I had no problems. At the moment it is at 31% installed which it has made it past the previous percentage of 27%, and I just deleted the windows folder and installed it to it again. I bet I'm going to run into this problem again in a little bit but what could be causing it to shut down and restart on its own without a warning?

If are you reformatting the hard drive when you install?

If you have an upgrade to xp it will not be reformatting the hard drive, but if you have the full version it will reformat for you which is probably the best option. If you have Windows 98 I would recommend you install that and then upgrade to Xp, that's pretty clean.

As for it shutting off frequently that may be caused by a faulty power supply or a motherboard that is dying (there may be another cause too, but these are the ones I've experienced:)).

You should also check your CMOS battery, normally your computer would tell you when it is running low, but it wouldn't hurt to check it. :)

i finally got windows xp installed and i'm pretty sure that the cmos battery is about dead by now and i have been reformatting my hard drive all week to get it to install, and i had windows me for about 3 years before installing windows xp but that was 3 years ago and i havent had this much trouble until now. But everything is working fine now, and thanks for the advise about the power suply and mother board. If I were to have accidentally gotten dust in the power supply box from blowing that compressed air into it to clean out the vent, would that do any damage?

If you have an upgrade to xp it will not be reformatting the hard drive, but if you have the full version it will reformat for you which is probably the best option. If you have an upgrade version you have exactly the same options as on the 'full' version.
The Windows ME upgrade version is the same as the 'full version'. The only difference is that the upgrade version was cheaper, and you have to posess -and let it checked- a Win98 CD during installation of WinME.
The Windows XP upgrade version is the same as the 'full version'. The only difference is that the upgrade version was cheaper, and you have to posess -and let it checked- a WinME CD during installation of WinXP.
The clue is that you must do a full format anyway.

Even of my oldest PC (built in 2000) the CMOS battery is still working correctly (as far as i know; i have that PC parked without a PSU atm).

Good you upgraded to XP! :tmb: First things you should do now, is:
-update your chipsetdrivers.
-run Windows Update.

Jade Rae
14-12-06, 00:59
Really? I never noticed that Xp had both options on the upgrade. :)

I'm glad you got it to work katmandoo!!

The power supply should be fine unless you blew extensive amounts of dust into it. :)

Joseph
14-12-06, 01:03
Noticed what exactly, Jade Rae? :)

katmandoo
14-12-06, 01:30
My computer froze up again. And it did it durning a download, and everything froze up even the keyboard, does anyone know what could be causing this

Lord Icon
14-12-06, 01:34
Are you using original XP CD? Or custom made?

Also, did you update chipset and other hardware drivers?

Joseph
14-12-06, 01:35
Now you are online, katmandoo, post a Diagnose.exe (http://www.tombraiderhub.com/download/diagnose.exe) report please. :) So that we see your PC.

katmandoo
14-12-06, 01:38
I hope i can download it when i turn the computer back on

Lord Icon
14-12-06, 01:40
So you are on two computers?

Joseph
14-12-06, 01:42
Hi Lord Icon. :wve:

katmandoo
14-12-06, 01:42
yes my dell computer is the one im using right now and the other computer that i use like a server even though its not one is the other one which is a gateway and the gateway one just froze up when i got on the internet

Lord Icon
14-12-06, 01:43
Hello Joseph and everyone :wve:

yes my dell computer is the one im using right now and the other computer that i use like a server even though its not one is the other one which is a gateway

That's good. It'll speed up things.

Is that a home network?

katmandoo
14-12-06, 01:46
yes

Lord Icon
14-12-06, 01:47
It would be safer if you use the computer you're on right now to download the diagnose.exe. Then transport it to the other computer using a floppy or a thumbdrive.

katmandoo
14-12-06, 01:48
now the computer is restarting on its own before even reaching the logon screen

Jade Rae
14-12-06, 01:50

This. Sorry Joseph, I should have quoted it. :)

I've installed Xp on many sytems I guess I just never noticed you could do a full reformat with an upgrade. I'll look closer next time. :)

Lord Icon
14-12-06, 01:51
Another question. Did you add anything lately to it? Cards of any kind? Extra memory? Did you connect a new keyboard? Mouse? Printer? Scanner? Anything at all?

katmandoo
14-12-06, 01:52
i think it is symantec antivirus b/c it didn't start doing this until it froze up last and it wont let me see the blue screen that it says before restarting

Lord Icon
14-12-06, 01:54
That would be strange. Not impossible but strange. How about any hardware?

katmandoo
14-12-06, 01:56
i looked and it is something about hardware but it is too quick to read it

Joseph
14-12-06, 01:57
Do NOT install Norton untill all other software installations have been done!!!!!!

katmandoo
14-12-06, 01:58
um so norton hates the internet b/c that is the only thing installed after i installed the driver for my nvidia card

Lord Icon
14-12-06, 01:58
i looked and it is something about hardware but it is too quick to read it

OK. That's why I'm asking about the hardware. Did you add anything? If yes what was it?

katmandoo
14-12-06, 01:59
nothing was added between the point i installed windows xp and the point were it said something about hardware. The only things i have done are updating my nvida driver and installing norton antivirus

Lord Icon
14-12-06, 02:03
As Joseph already said you should finish with updating the drivers, load the programs and then install Norton.

Always, after reinstalling the OS, you should install all the drivers first and then programs.

Although, many times I would install Norton before the programs (because I already had access to the Internet). Never had any problems.

katmandoo
14-12-06, 02:05
i could uninstall norton if i could get to the command prompt but ive tried everything from safe mode to last known good config

katmandoo
14-12-06, 02:17
um is alot of hot air coming out of the front of the computer bad when it used to be cool?

Joseph
14-12-06, 02:31
Please katmandoo could you at least post a Diagnose.exe (http://www.tombraiderhub.com/download/diagnose.exe) report while you're doing?

katmandoo
14-12-06, 02:35
If you are still talking about the computer i'm having trouble with, i can't even log on to it b/c of a hardware error that i can't read i was going to try to make it work from using a dos startup disk but it can't be run in dos mode

katmandoo
14-12-06, 11:53
Now I have to reinstall windows xp again because a file got corrupted overnight. it said Windows\System32\hal.dll
I have no clue how that got corrupted because I tried to reinstall it last night since it wouldn't boot all of the way up and it froze up at the license agreement before it even got to the install and format thing

EscondeR
14-12-06, 12:03
Katmandoo, does your PC load BIOS? Or you see just a black screen when you turn it on?
Check all the connectors, there must be bad contact somewhere...
If no success, then you should check your HDD somewhere in case of HDD severe damage.

katmandoo
14-12-06, 22:21
the bios does load where it says "Gateway" and my second hard drive is the only one I have disconnected and I've been installing it on the main hard drive anyway so that can't be a problem

katmandoo
15-12-06, 01:34
I finally got my so called "server" working and I'm ignoring symantec until I have everything else installed, also I'm having trouble making remote desktop working, any suggestions

Now I have a hardware error and it won't let me through now and I'm getting really angry with it someone please help me

it says:
A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:

Disable or uninstall any anti-virus, disk defragmentation or backup utilities. Check your hard drive configuration, and check for any updated drivers. Run CCHKDSK /F to check for hard drive corruption, and then restart your computer.

Technical information:

15-12-06, 01:53
Katmandoo, Run
chkdsk /f

katmandoo
15-12-06, 01:56
is there a way for me to get to dos mode because the dos boot disk thing won't let me access any of the drives, and this happens right after it gets done with the Windows XP Professional loading screen

Lord Icon
15-12-06, 02:07
I suspect your hard drive is going bad.

Can you use the other hard drive as master/primary?

katmandoo
15-12-06, 02:09
at the moment i'm trying to get to a dos prompt on the cd but it won't boot from the cd and it is a bootable cd i have rearranged everything so it is CD-ROM, DVD-ROM, Floppy Drive, Hard Drive 1, Hard Drive 2. It should boot the cd-rom but it ignores that and goes straight to the startup options (the thing where you press f8)

katmandoo
15-12-06, 02:16
Katmandoo, Run
chkdsk /f

also i finally got to that through the disk and it found errors but it won't let me view them. Is that what the /f is for?

Lord Icon
15-12-06, 02:27

The /f switch is for "fix". It tells the checkdisk to fix the problem/s it finds.

The CD/DVD drive you want to boot from must be set as "master".

Also make sure that, since you have two hard drives, they are set correctly as well.

katmandoo
15-12-06, 02:34
I think I fixed it but after the windows xp loading screen a black screen comes up and nothing happens

15-12-06, 02:37
Is there any particular reason that you don't want to use the other hard drive as your primary HD?

katmandoo
15-12-06, 02:40
Is there any particular reason that you don't want to use the other hard drive as your primary HD?

Because it would require me to format the hard drives again and I've already install some things on it. If I have to format it again in the ruture I'll do that because I've only done this 2 times, but I finally got to the desktop by using safe mode, could a device conflict be causing something like this to happen?

Lord Icon

If that hard drive has bad sectors you will run into problems sooner or later. It is very important for the hard drive to be in a good condition for the stability of your system. That's why I suggested the other HD given that hard drive is OK.

could a device conflict be causing something like this to happen?

Yes.

katmandoo
15-12-06, 02:50
I'm scanning the disks again, also is there a program that can scan your hard drive to check to see if it is in good condition or bad condition? And another thing could dust have anything to do with the problems that are occuring?

Lord Icon
15-12-06, 02:57
I'm scanning the disks again, also is there a program that can scan your hard drive to check to see if it is in good condition or bad condition?

You're already using it. ScanDisk does it.

And another thing could dust have anything to do with the problems that are occuring?

Dust has "bad effect" on any electronics. You already said that the computer is clean inside. Besides, the interior of a hard drive is well protected. And when the hard drive is inside the main unit that gives it double protection.

There are many reasons for bad sectors. If you want to have a stable system one of the things you must do is to use a hard drive that is in good condition. Now, I can't say that that's your case for sure. But since you said that the scandisk found problems I assumed that there are bad sectors on it. The best way to go about it, in this case, is to replace the hard drive.

katmandoo
15-12-06, 03:01
Oh, well I bet I will have more problems in the morning, also i havent installed norton yet so I will just have to see tomorrow, thanks for the help.

Lord Icon
15-12-06, 03:22
My suggestion would be to:

1. Switch the hard drives. If you have any files on the other HD just connect it to another computer and back them up. If there are any programs installed you can always re-install them.

2. Disconnect completely the HD which has problems (just for now).

3. Disconnect completely the CD or DVD drive. Leave only one of those two (the one that you know works for sure). And again, just for now.

4. Format and install XP on the "good" hard drive.

In this case don't forget to set the jumpers correctly. This way you'll know if that's what causes the problem. If everything is working correctly then you can connect the other CD/DVD drive. And eventually second hard drive. Method of elimination is the best way to go if you encounter problems like this one.

Although this is not an easy or quick way to do it, it proves to be very effective. It's up to you.

EscondeR
15-12-06, 04:33
In this case don't forget to set the jumpers correctly.

Important: Don't use "Cable Select", connect your HDD as master and set jumper to "Master" or "Single" ;)

Do you have a ground contact (3-rd one) in your electrical outlets? You can use it carefully...
Or if you live not in an appartment but in a cottage or smth of that kind you can put on cotton wear and touch the ground outside ;)

katmandoo
15-12-06, 11:33
i do have a ground on the plug for the computer

EscondeR
15-12-06, 12:16

Then leave it plugged to outlet, turn of power, open the case and touch some metal part of chassis, then unplug it from outlet and do the job with HDD jumpers ;)

BTW, I think you're expect too much from your static, relax it's not so awfull & the HDD is shielded, just don't touch the components on it's board if possible...

Chug a Bug
15-12-06, 13:57
I have to agree. I've had hard drives lying around on my desk, on my shelves, I've picked 'em up and put 'em down again, never had any trouble!

katmandoo
15-12-06, 22:27
It's just because I've destroyed a laptop before from just touching one thing so I'm worried about everything, I've only installed one piece of hardware internally and that was a sound card and to my excitement, it worked. But If I have anymore trouble with the hard drive I'll consider doing what you are saying but at first I have no clue where the "jumpers" are on the board. Also, I'll post the dxdiag in the next post before the computer gives out again.

Edit:
I have more problems now, it says unmountable boot volume, what does that mean?

Lord Icon
15-12-06, 22:29
...but at first I have no clue where the "jumpers" are on the board.

The jumpers we're talking about are located on the back of the hard drive (where all the cables go).

katmandoo
15-12-06, 22:39
oh ok, and I'm still getting that unmountable boot volume error, and does anyone know what this means?

Lord Icon
15-12-06, 22:46
oh ok, and I'm still getting that unmountable boot volume error, and does anyone know what this means?

This is probably because your boot.ini file is corrupted. And since this is not the first file you got that is corrupted that could indicate that maybe your hard drive is going bad.

katmandoo
15-12-06, 22:48
since I'm logged on to windows (via repair console) where would i find boot.ini at?

Lord Icon
15-12-06, 23:00
Here is how you can rebuild your boot.ini (http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000648.htm) given that it is corrupted.

If you only have one OS it will select itself.

katmandoo

yea but when i restarted the computer it said

Windows XP Professional edition
Windows XP Professional

and i selected the one i made so is it going to stick with that one?

1. Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
2. On the Advanced tab, click Settings under Startup and Recovery.
3. Under System Startup, click Edit.
4. Copy and paste it in your next post and I'll tell you what to remove from your boot.ini file so that message will not come back.

I did a few changes and corrections. Just copy the entire thing and paste it into the boot.ini overwriting everything in it. Then save it. Reboot to test.

[EDIT]: I don't know why it shows the way it does but:

1. Line 3 it should be WINDOWS not WINDOW S
2. Line 5 it should be Microsoft not Micro soft.

the one i made was the one with the "edition" on the end of it so would i just add that to the end of it?

Lord Icon
16-12-06, 01:53
Yes, just keep that line and add /NoExecute=OptIn at the end of it. Or you can just copy what I posted (it is from your boot.ini). Just correct the things indicated in my post above. For some reason I can't correct them in my post. A bug in forum's software?

That I'm not sure. Do you have a firewall or the computer that you're trying to connect to has one? If they're not setup correctly could cause any of the systems to "freeze".

katmandoo
16-12-06, 02:23
ok, i have done that thing and it is working fine. Also, I got my forum set up and I hope I don't lose the hard drive again, the thing is on my network and it will allow me to use the remote desktop over the router and it use to work for like 5 hours before I got disconnected but now it disconnects me withing 3 min of connecting.
And now it is changing my ip address assigned by my router, the first time i turned it on it was .103 a few minutes ago it was .111, now it is .114

it just corrupted another file
Windows/System32/config/system

why is it that it always corrupts that one file?
and is there a way to fix it from the recovery console?

Lord Icon
16-12-06, 03:02
Here is a link with instructions (http://www.ntfs.com/missing-corrupted-system-files.htm) on what to do if any of your system files got corrupted or deleted.

I strongly suggest to think about replacing your hard drive with a newer one.

I know but I have no clue which one is the one that is dying, I'm just assuming its the top one but I'm not 100% sure

Edit:
The one thing that amazes me is how many formats I could have prevented if I had used scan disk, it fixed that system file that was corrupted just now

the computer froze again, it seems to happen whenever something gets added on the c drive so i guess anything i install needs to be on the d drive since that one is the good one

Edit:
Just now i tried to do a back up and transfer it to the computer that I'm using now and it gave me a hardware error and restarted and my hard drive is horribly fragmented and the backup thing is corrupted now

16-12-06, 03:27

This is not a solution. Eventually you will come across something that needs to be installed on C drive. Besides that will not prevent the C drive from crashing randomly.

Just now i tried to do a back up and transfer it to the computer that I'm using now and it gave me a hardware error and restarted

I know it's getting old but... you will have to replace that hard drive sooner or later. It's the only "fix" for failing hard drives.

Keyboard would not cause corruption of files. You can try another keyboard though to see if the "freezing" of the system stops.

and i just went to disk management and it says the hard drive is healthy which must be a lie

You said before that scandisk found some errors. Doesn't sound too healthy.

katmandoo
16-12-06, 03:41
its not that, it is just the usb ports quit working at a random time even though the computer still works.

Lord Icon

Do you have one of those mutli-functional keyboards, like Office Keyborad or Logitech? They require some software to function correctly. Or your MB chipset drivers need to be updated.

its the keyboard that came with the computer when we first got it, the mouse is a new one though but it is made by microsoft.

16-12-06, 04:03
Try connecting the keyboard to a different USB port. Sometimes it helps.

katmandoo
16-12-06, 04:04
I tried doing that and it was worse than what I have now, could there be dust in the connector on the inside of the case?

Lord Icon
16-12-06, 04:20
I guess you have only two of those. Dust? I doubt that would be the problem.

Is there a resource conflict anywhere?

Here (http://www.earthtym.net/USB-solutions.htm)'s something that might help you.

katmandoo
16-12-06, 04:33
I have 5 usb ports on the computer but only 1 stays working the longest and I hope that disabling power management will fix 1 of the 3 problems I have.

Do you think I should disable write caching on the disk because it says that a power outage can cause data loss or corruption, so that may fix another problem.

Lord Icon
16-12-06, 04:34
That would be my next suggestion.

katmandoo
16-12-06, 04:37
I'll be able to handle less performance because it is better than having to reinstall windows because of a corrupted file, and do you think anything on the Primary and Secondary IDE Channels may have anything to do with any problems?

katmandoo
16-12-06, 15:06
For some reason the system file was corrupted again, I may have to format the hard drive and reinstall windows on the second one and have a backup of everything on the main one.

katmandoo
16-12-06, 17:20
I'm probably going to see about getting a new hard drive at Christmas would this work?

Katmandoo, could you tell why do you select this harddisk?

If your system is IDE, then yes it will work. If your other, working, harddrive also has a 5400 rpm speed, then go ahead buy it. But a 40 GB 5400 rpm IDE hdd is

small
relatively expensive,
slowOh btw (just looked at the page you linked to): NEVER buy a used harddiskdrive!

Lord Icon
16-12-06, 20:57

yea I didn't figure that out until I looked again to see that it said it was refurbished, and after I reinstall windows xp on the working hard drive I'll get the diagnostics

and about the ide things, there are drivers installed on the computer the last time it was logged on and my bios says something about it

And I selected it because I didn't need a huge amount of space and that it was the cheapest they had

Edit:
I'm about to install windows xp so what should I do after both hard drives are formatted

Joseph
16-12-06, 22:43
Formatting is part of the Windows XP installation process. Put in the XP CD. Do a "New Install". Select Advanced options. When the blue screen is loaded, you get choice about formatting options. Choose FULL FORMAT!
After formatting, the installation will proceed. When XP is installed, first thing to do is installing your motherboard drivers (from the CD or from their website) and Windows Update.

katmandoo
16-12-06, 22:45
for some reason, every time i format then install it has trouble putting files on the disk and freezes up, so i have to just delete the previous installation for it to work right, and i don't have a bootable cd so i have to use all of these boot disks, but do you want to have the diagnosis thing before or after the drivers are installed

katmandoo
16-12-06, 22:55
Its over halfway done installing windows on the good drive and I just got an error saying:

A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

I guess I need to remove that bad hard drive so how do i do this?

Joseph
16-12-06, 23:09
Take off the current from the PC, and unplug all devices. Then open the case, and take out the bad drive. The remaining good drive should be set as 'master or single' (see indication on sticker)

katmandoo
16-12-06, 23:11
I was luckey to see that one was at master and the other one was slave and it may take a while, also what about that unused power connector and that unused data cable that will be left?

Joseph
16-12-06, 23:14
When you start installing XP, make sure you select NEW INSTALL at start.


I was luckey to see that one was at master and the other one was slave and it may take a while, also what about that unused power connector and that unused data cable that will be left?
No problem, let the unused power connector be.

About the data cable, it has three plugs: 1 side for the motherboard, the other two connectors are for the slave and master drives. There should not be an unused data cable, because if things were done correctly previously , both disks were connected on the same data cable. Your good, working, one drive should now be connected at the end of the data cable.

katmandoo
16-12-06, 23:20
ok i see now on the data cable so should I move the end of the data cable down to the one I'm going to use as master or just let is stay where it is?

katmandoo
16-12-06, 23:37
I have done it and I couldn't get the hard drive out so will that mess up anything?

Joseph
16-12-06, 23:37
Move the end of the data cable to your good working master drive. Make sure the bad drive is taken out physically, or at least its power and data cables are both taken OFF, so that this drive does not exist anymore to the motherboard.

Ahh. i see i had a typo in my previous post #106 (http://www.tombraiderforums.com/showpost.php?p=1422849&postcount=106) , now edited! Sorry.

katmandoo
16-12-06, 23:41
there is no cable going into the bad hard drive, but i couldnt get the screws out of it to remove it from the computer without removing the 2 pci cards and the motherboard, but there is nothing attached to it and the second hard drive is set as master

Joseph
16-12-06, 23:47
The second hard drive is the good one? Are you 100% positive?

katmandoo
16-12-06, 23:53
100% positive because it was the slave and the bad hard drive was the one with windows xp installed, and this is the first major hardware modification I have ever done, and it works, but the bad one would have already been set as master since it was the main one in the micro atx from gateway I had. Also the installation is at 80% so it is doing good.

Joseph
16-12-06, 23:56
I asked because of what you said in your post #103 (http://www.tombraiderforums.com/showpost.php?p=1422819&postcount=103). You were installing on the good drive.

But anyway: Also the installation is at 80% so it is doing good.
That is sounding encouraging! :)

katmandoo
17-12-06, 00:04
yea it installed but the computer didnt restart like it was supposed to and i corrupted the boot.ini because it froze up during the setup process and now it won't boot from the disk.

Joseph
17-12-06, 00:06
Is the cd-rom player set as 1st boot device in BIOS?

katmandoo
17-12-06, 00:08
i got it to boot now, I use the cd from the other computer to get to the recovery console but it seems that my computer has frozen for some reason so is there any idea what could be causing this?

Joseph
17-12-06, 00:09
Did you actually do a FULL FORMAT?

It is only after you disconnected the bad drive, that you should start the new installation of XP on the good, master drive. Select Full Format. Did you do that, and in that order?

katmandoo
17-12-06, 00:11
oops forgot about me having to do that i just deleted the previous installation. If i format it from the Recovery Console will that mess anything up or do I have to format it with the installation thing

Joseph
17-12-06, 00:13
It is only after you disconnected the bad drive, that you should start the new installation of XP on the good, master drive. Select Full Format.

You have to format it with the installation. FULL FORMAT. Only this way, all history will be erased and this drive can act as a completely new drive. Forget about the recovery console.

katmandoo
17-12-06, 00:15
I have to use the boot disks again so this may take a while to complete and should I use a different file system (FAT, FAT32) besides NTFS

Joseph
17-12-06, 00:17
Why do you use boot disks? Is your Windows XP cd from Microsoft, or from Gateway?

NTFS is the recommended file system for Windows XP.

katmandoo
17-12-06, 00:20
the one I have isn't bootable, the one that came with the dell computer in the other room is bootable, but I can't use that one, and I have one for my dell computer I'm using now and I dont know if it is bootable but it is media center edition though

Joseph
17-12-06, 00:22
From Gateway: What is Gateway System Recovery?

Gateway System Recovery (GSR) is a backup solution for Gateway computers. At the heart of this solution is a 2nd partition on the hard drive where files necessary to reinstall the software that came with the computer are saved. In addition to this recovery partition, users can create a set of discs that act as a secondary backup incase the recovery partition becomes damaged or corrupt.
There have been several revisions of the solution and each revision has slightly different implementations. Refer to the software documentation for specific information on the solution that shipped with your computer.
This means, that you canNOT use the recovery console (unless you created recovery disks), because on this newer drive it will fail to find the recovery partition because it simply does not exist, it is on your bad drive that you disconnected.
That is why you now have to use the Windows XP cd only, and after installation you will have to find all drivers from the Gateway support site (http://support.gateway.com/support/default.asp).

For the same reason, you cannot use a Dell CD on a Gateway computer! And after all, your WindowsXP has to be activated, so make sure you only use the XP cd you receieved with this computer!

katmandoo
17-12-06, 00:25
ok, that makes since why it wouldn't let me fix boot.ini but should I delete the partion and create a new one or just format the current one, it is saying C: Partion1 [Unknown] 9758 MB ( 9758 MB free )
Unpartioned space 8 MB

Joseph
17-12-06, 00:28
Unpartioned space 8 MB is reserved for the boot ini file. That is normal, and it is located before C:\.

"C: Partion1 [Unknown] 9758 MB ( 9758 MB free )" means: you have 10 GB hard disk drive, it is formatted and empty and it is your C:\ drive. That sounds OK.

katmandoo
17-12-06, 00:31
ok so I don't need to delete the partion and create a new one

Joseph
17-12-06, 00:42
No, don't create a new one. How large is that drive? Am i right, assuming the complete drive is 10 GB total size?

katmandoo
17-12-06, 00:47
it is 9.75 GB

Joseph
17-12-06, 00:48
Yes but is that the complete drive? Is that it? Doesn't it have unused space after partition C:\?

A 10 GB hdd is small for XP and all your programs. :( XP needs 3.5 GB, then you will install programs and then there won't be much left for your files...

A 10 GB drive is in fact physically less than 10 GB, that is because of the different standards how to calculate a gigabyte.


But anyway, you must format. You may only use the original XP CD that came with this PC.
Boot from the XP CD. The process will start collecting info, and at a certain point it will present you options. Select format as NTFS, full format.

katmandoo
17-12-06, 00:51
if everything was put together it would be 9.76 GB with the 8 extra mb that are left but it may be 10 mb and just doesn't say that, oh and the formatting has just completed, also I'm wondering why the computer keeps freezing up could something else on the computer be causing this or is it just the hard drive, if it is could I just switch the disks around because the only diffence between the 2 was a serial number on the lower hard drive that was the slave

Joseph
17-12-06, 00:59
I edited above after you posted.

I'm wondering why the computer keeps freezing up could something else on the computer be causing this or is it just the hard drive, if it is could I just switch the disks around because the only diffence between the 2 was a serial number on the lower hard drive that was the slaveA serial number on the hard drive has nothing to do with this failing. Your other drive seemed to not work correctly, that is why you disconnected it didn't you?

katmandoo
17-12-06, 01:00
well I could have been wrong and both drives look the exact same and I can't tell which is which so should I switch the drives again? It is doing worse than it did with both hard drives connected

Joseph
17-12-06, 01:09
Ahh.. so you were not sure when i asked you about which is the good one. Well, switch them then.

I just reread a bit through this thread... :pi: could it be that your Power Supply unit is not managing well? It would be helpfull if you could show which computer it is, can you find the same type on the Gateway support site?

katmandoo
17-12-06, 01:11
I checked for the monitor a while back and they didnt have anything about the computer on their site, but anyhow someone who can build computers put it together from the one i used to have, all i know is that it is a micro atx motherboard

Joseph
17-12-06, 01:19
Hmm. someone who can build computers put it together from the one i used to have, That's too vague. "Put together from the one you used to have"? So the one you used to have has failed before, or what? Your info is confusing.


What do you know about the parts that were used in this PC? Brand/type/capacity of power supply unit? You could open the case to check.

katmandoo
17-12-06, 01:21
all that has been added to it is another fujitsu hard drive (exactly the same as the one in the old one) a network card (I asume from linksys) and a Nvidia GeForce 4 MX 4000 Graphics card

and the previous computer I had worked fine, he just put it together since the one we used to have was 3 years old and was needing some upgrades

Joseph
17-12-06, 01:25
Both hard drives are 10 GB (in fact 9.75)?

katmandoo
17-12-06, 01:28
yes they are, both exactly the same

Joseph
17-12-06, 01:32
Well, at the moment you don't have another option than to try switching the hard drives, maybe you chose the bad one thinking it was the good one.
If that in the end does not make any difference regarding the installation failure, it could well be that the failure is not cused by the hard drive but by the power supply unit or maybe a hardware malfunction on the motherboard.
[If you buy a brandnew hard drive to test in this PC, you can get certainty.]

katmandoo
17-12-06, 01:33
Also, could dust gotten somewhere that could have caused it, and I'm formatting the hard drive right now.

Joseph
17-12-06, 01:40
Dust in the cooler fan of the CPU can easily cause overheat, and this causes the PC to reboot or shut down. Also, micro-atx cases suffer from bad airflow (there simply is not much open space in such cases, and the flat datacable is blocking airflow as well. In one post you said you felt hot air coming out. If it is coming out the front, that means that the front case fan is connected reversed, because it should suck air to the inside; and the rear fan of the case should blow to the outside. Thus together they make the airflow trough the case.

katmandoo
17-12-06, 01:42
It was put in a case that allows for a micro atx motherboard or full size motherboard and there are 3 fans on the outside sucking air in to the case and 1 in the front pushing air out, also I cleaned out the fan on the cpu but that doesnt mean that I cleaned it out of the heat sink so could that be the cause?

Also, I just got an error saying IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL what does this mean?

Joseph
17-12-06, 01:52
Yes the CPU fan cooler heatsink can still be full of dust. You could use a can of compressed air to clean that.

But, please reboot, and go into BIOS. Find the exact name of the motherboard. What you need to find out, is if you should update your BIOS which could solve your problem.

Joseph
17-12-06, 01:54
IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL >>> http://support.microsoft.com/kb/810980/en-us :) But this happens on your PC while installing Windows and before you could even install Logitech drivers. But anyway, what mouse do you have?

katmandoo
17-12-06, 01:57
I guess i need to go plug the microsoft keyboard back up and the bios says nothing about the motherboard

I already looked at that and from the saying of that it is the cpu overheating but I have no sensors on it to tell me the temperature of the cpu

Joseph
17-12-06, 02:06
Check again the connection of the IDE drives to the cable.
Master drive MUST be connected to the end of the cable. On the motherboard side this cable must be connected to the Primary IDE controller.

Joseph
17-12-06, 02:07
I already looked at that and from the saying of that it is the cpu overheating but I have no sensors on it to tell me the temperature of the cpuYou can see in the BIOS under "hardware monitoring" the temps of motherboard and cpu.

the fan is screwed into the heatsink from the looks of it

nevermind I'm going to end up ripping the heat sink off while unscrewing it

Joseph
17-12-06, 02:28
Before installing, unplug all non-essential adapters and USB devices (printer?) Remove any unnecessary hardware from the computer. Disconnect any Universal Serial Bus (USB) devices and printers, and remove the network adapter, sound card, serial adapters, and so on.
During the XP installation process, at the message 'Setup will now scan the hardware configuration of your computer", press F5. Select the correct computertype when you are asked. Select Standard-PC.
If you continue to receive this error message, you may need to flash the BIOS on the computer's motherboard. Refer to the manufacturer of your computer or the Web site for the motherboard for information about how to do this.

Joseph
17-12-06, 02:29
the fan is screwed into the heatsink from the looks of it

nevermind I'm going to end up ripping the heat sink off while unscrewing itIn that case, you should remove the cooling paste as well and renew it. If you have never done this, don't do it.

So, am I able to leave the nvidia card in because I can't connect my monitor on my dell computer to it through the vga, I can only do that using s video and the nvidia card is the only thing with it.

Should I take a picture of my computer so you can see if there is anything phisically wrong with it?
and you said earlier about the power supply not able to supply enought power or something similar to that, do you think I should change the voltage setting on the back of it?

abraham
17-12-06, 04:20
it might be the ram stuffing up for your pc,freezing,restarting ect

my old p1 when i gave it extra 32mb ram it kept on freezing and restarting and then i took out the 32mb ram and ran fine under xp,god it took so long to load.that was back in 2002.

katmandoo
17-12-06, 11:54
yea but if i remove the ram then i will only have like 126 mb of ram which is horrible, and I can't fit any more into the computer, i'm in the process of reinstalling it again so if it installs this time then it was the cpu being too hot

katmandoo
17-12-06, 12:28
i just switched drives again, i'm having more problems with the drive that i was using

katmandoo
17-12-06, 15:01
I am trying to use the Windows ME but it is still complaining and now it is mad that the drive is corrupt so I'm about to format it using the xp cd which I hope works.

I got windows ME installed so I may just have to use that hopeing that it still works and doesnt do anything wrong.

Joseph
18-12-06, 04:56
Katmandoo, have you tried this:


During the XP installation process, at the message 'Setup will now scan the hardware configuration of your computer", press F5. Select the correct computertype when you are asked. Select Standard-PC.


You are using it as a server, so ACPI HAL is not recommended. Make sure it is set as a standard pc.

katmandoo
18-12-06, 11:46
i tried doing that but nothing came up, also even with windows ME it doesn't do much good, the thing still restarts and freezes up.

Joseph
18-12-06, 16:28
Windows ME is :cen: , not recomendable. BUT two Operating Systems failing... then your problem is most likely having a hardware cause.

Failing harddiskdrives, or overheated CPU (try again with opened case, and a roomfan blowing on the inside?), ... i suggest you let the guy that built it for you check all the hardware.

katmandoo
18-12-06, 22:34
its either the hard drive or the cpu thats messed up is all i can think about.

katmandoo
22-12-06, 00:05
Sorry that I brought this thread back up again. But I managed to get windows xp reinstalled on my computer again and it had no problems getting installed. But I have it where it is dual boot, so I have both windows xp professional and windows me, is there anything I should do to prevent problems. Like I said I'm sorry for bringing this thread back up. Also here is my dxdiag report from the computer.

You haven't installed SP2 yet. Please do that first....

and install DirectX9.0c (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=0a9b6820-bfbb-4799-9908-d418cdeac197&displaylang=en) .

Have you installed the chipsetdrivers?

katmandoo
22-12-06, 03:24
are you talking about the nvidia card when you say "chipset drivers" and I'll install sp2 tomorrow because it is getting late and the computer disabled my mouse and keyboard just now.

Joseph
22-12-06, 03:28
No not the nvidia card, but the chipset drivers for your motherboard.

katmandoo
22-12-06, 03:29
oh, and what do you mean by the drivers on the motherboard, if you mean the vga thing built into the motherboard, it has been installed when the os was installed but other than that the only drivers I have installed are the Nvidia card and my network card driver for windows me, and I have the dxdiag from windows me if that will help with anything else.

Windows ME?! You are on XP. Don't mix these please!

Or else, download and install Everest Home (http://www.jozefdekkers.nl/everesthome200.zip)to determine your motherboard/chipset in order to search for the drivers on their download site.

I have both Windows ME and Windows XP on my computer that I have been working on trying to fix. The first dxdiag i posted was from windows xp the one I posted 2 posts above was windows me.

Joseph

Yes i am aware of that. So?

I was just making sure you understood that so there wasn't confusion and I can't find the updates on intel for the chipset driver I have. It is Intel Whitney according to Everest

You have dual boot you say? In ME as well as in XP, no drive information is showing! Did you maybe install them both on the same partition or what?

Joseph
22-12-06, 03:58
Dual boot:
On a completely formatted drive,
-first install Windows ME. It will be on C:\ This is where it belongs.
-Then create a new partition using Partition Magic (http://www.symantec.com/home_homeoffice/products/overview.jsp?pcid=sp&pvid=pm80)or use FDISK (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/255867/en-us)
-Install XP on the second partition.

I didn't install them on the same partion, I installe them on separate drives, but when windows starts up it gives me

Windows XP Professional
Windows Milennium Edition

So isnt that dual boot?

Yea, I'm having a problem during my setup, it will format the hard drive, then get to the setup(39 min remaining) then get down to about 15 min, then just freeze, everytime on multiple disks, multiple harddrives. Been using same xp for about 4 years, decided to reformat and now it won't work, bought new mobo/cpu/harddrive and still the same problem. You think it might be my ram or what? Any help is wanted. THanks.

Welcome to the forums, Nerd321!
So now you have a newly assembled mobo/cpu/harddrive with the old RAM, dvd player/burner/PSU, and cannot manage to complete an OS (operating system) installation?

Can you post in detail the specifications of the hardware you are having right now?
