Costs of reinstallation of windows XP

M50 8189-EIU

I bought this machine used with no OS and installed my XP Pro on the computer and the recall, I had to download something from Lenovo for its work. Unfortunately, I forgot what, maybe a modem or a network patch?

In any case, it is time for a new installation, since the system is too loaded down with junk and works as an 8088 processor!

What should I burn the disk before you wipe the drive and start over?

One thing I suggest - download ethernet driver and save to drive key, so after the XP installed, you will be able to connect to the network after the XP install.  After completing all the windows updates, go to the lenovo site and download system updates.  KEEP in MIND - you need to .1net framework installed first, and then updates the 3.5net to install the system.  System updates will install all the drivers on your machine.

    I have a Dell Inspiron 19. The Dell of Dell diagnostics disk utilities & drivers say all right. It is a Seagate 320 GB drive. I installed the drive on another computer and used sea tools to erase the disc.  Then I created a partition and marked as "bootable".

    Original problem seems to be a massive viral infection (owner had no active antivirus software installation!) which led to the non-bootable computer.  After working on this for a while, I decided to just do again it.

    After a reinstall of the operating system, you must reinstall the latest drivers from your computer manufacturer's website:

    Go to the website to make your computer > Driver and Software Support Section > search your computer or hardware model number > then your operating system > locate the correct drivers > download and install.


    And you do not tell us why you did a reinstall and if there reboot/freeze before you did this reinstall.

    FYI: Desktop computers normally are Wi - fi unless you install additional hardware for this.


    Noise inside a desktop computer can be caused by fan/s or harddrives about to fail.

    Go to the website of your computer manufacturer > search your computer specifications > know brand of hard drive > access the Hard Drive manufacturer's Web site > find and download hard drive Diagnostic software and make a record of start of it on the computer that you use to get here, following their instructions > test your hard drive...

    If you install a Dell supplied CD/DVD restore on Dell computer that it shipped with it should never ask the COA/key... The only time where I came across a plant from a Dell CD/DVD requiring a COA/key is because it has been installed on the non-Dell hardware. He has scoped during the installation of the system on which it was delivered with.

    I don't think that Dell will sell you a new set with installation of COST but can Microsoft. Not sure about the cost.

  • Reinstallation of Windows Media Center XP error, the application failed to initialize properly (0xc000135

    I had to install a new hard drive after the death of my old. I use my Dell recovery/reinstallation disk. The first time I tried installing that it froze after the reboot. I then did a repair installation (twice) and each time got the following error:

    PxShare.exe Application error.

    The application failed to initialize properly (0xc000135).  Click OK to close the application.

    It appears at the end of the installation, but when my login screen is displayed, it shows only one account, administrator and request a password. I have not configured any accounts when I did the installation and you do not have a password. I tried to enter without password, using admin as password and check-in safe mode did not help - it still asked for a password.

    I don't know if the two problems are related or not.

    Thanks for any help!

    Vista recovery media obtain and/or use the Partition Recovery Vista on your computer to the factory settings .

    There is no Vista free download legal available.

    Contact your computer manufacturer and ask them to send a recovery disk/s Vista set.

    Normally, they do this for a cost of $ small.


    In addition, ask them if you have a recovery Partition on your computer/laptop to restore it to factory settings.

    See if a manual provided with the computer or go to the manufacturer's website, email or you can call for information on how to make a recovery.

    Normally, you have to press F10 or F11 at startup to start the recovery process...

    Another way I've seen on some models is press F8 and go to a list of startup options, and launch a recovery of standards of plant with it, by selecting the repair option.


    Also ask them if it is possible to do the recovery disk/s for the recovery Partition in case of a system Crash or hard drive failure.

    They will tell you how to do this.

    Every computer manufacturer has their own way of making recovery disk/s.


    Or borrow a good Microsoft Vista DVD (not Dell, HP, etc).
    A good Vista DVD contains all versions of Vista.
    The product key determines which version of Vista is installed.

    There are 2 disks of Vista: one for 32-bit operating system, and one for 64-bit operating system.

    If install a cleaning is required with a good DVD of Vista (not HP, Dell recovery disks):

    Go to your Bios/Setup, or the Boot Menu at startup and change the Boot order to make the DVD/CD drive 1st in the boot order, then reboot with the disk in the drive.

    At the startup/power on you should see at the bottom of the screen either F2 or DELETE, go to Setup/Bios or F12 for the Boot Menu

  • Reinstallation of Windows 7 with OEM license with an OEM license and the manufacturer's warranty expired

    My hard drive starts to die, if I want to backup all my data and be ready in case it fails. One of the things on my list of verification is to ensure that I can reinstall Windows 7 if need be.

    I don't have in my possession a Windows reinstallation disk, so I want to create a USB bootable for windows 7. The link to the .isos DIgital River that I use to create my bootable USB key doesn't work for users with OEM licenses. Very annoying, but I can legally get a Dell reinstall drive instead. But Dell wouldn't send me reinstallation disks because my warranty with Dell expired.

    The result of this is that if your a manufacturer guarantee expired, you can no longer reinstall windows on the same computer!

    Dell says it is responsible for providing the relevant recovery media, including Windows used to do with the Digital River .isos, but who no longer work for people with Microsoft's Windows 7 OEM license. Microsoft says that it is the responsibility of Dell to provide its customers with the recovery media (disks to reinstall windows) in the first place. Personally, I'm not interested in the blame game - I just want to have access to a recovery media so I have the option of legally re - install windows 7 in the future with my OEM license.

    Can you help me with this problem? Thank you.

    Downloads Microsoft removing the Digital River and replacing them with a non-functional tool are extremely boring.

    If you can still start, update Dell backup and restore to the latest version:

    Make a USB (older than 2012 systems) recovery or recovery external hard drive (more recent than 2012 systems):

    Boot from it to the new hard drive and use it to reinstall. Recovery media is using earlier versions may not work on the new disks.

  • Reinstallation of Windows 7 product key question valid.

    I see a lot of another similar post here, but none the explicitly to help me in my situation, as I understand it. I have problems with my computers that confuse me now. Both my laptop and desktop computer had hard drive failure and I replaced the drives in both entities (nothing else). Today, I have reinstalled Windows 7 on two of them (the sticker COST says Windows 7 Home Prem OA), I entered for each respective product keys and none worked properly. Both computers say I entered the product key is invalid for activation. I tried this for 32-bit and 64-bit versions (my laptop was 64-bit before the hard drive failed, I don't know what was the office, but the diagnostics say it is capable of 64 - bit) and it made no difference.

    It would be my time to search around, that the replacement of the hard drive should not cause this problem. I am not mistaken? Is there no way to reinstall Windows 7 using existing product keys? I received my links to download other messages here but the installer for this installation of Windows 7 Home Prem has an agreement of Service Pack 1 installation, should I be looking for a different version? What does the acronym for OA?


    You are allowed to change hard drives; the motherboard with OEM (preinstalled or system builders licenses) are the problem.

    And with or without Service Pack 1 download works with the product key on the COA sticker.

    This is the product key that is all important.

    If you have followed these steps to reinstall, follow the phone Activation section for activation problems and brace yourself for a real person explain to the:

    Download the correct ISO file and make your own drive and use the product key located on the COA sticker.

    And here are instructions on how to burn ISO disk images:

    Then do a clean install:

    The COA sticker is either or in the battery compartment on the underside of the laptop.

    With a desktop computer, it's on the side, the back or the top of the computer case.

    By using the downloaded ISO file method can require the Activation of phone.

    If it does require phone activation, do not follow Demand of Auto, but brace yourself for a real person explain as to what has been done for purposes of re-setup

  • Reinstallation of Windows 7 upgrade disk fails

    I'm trying to reinstall Windows 7 on my computer, as the strain of her age is starting to show. I hope that some performance improvements.

    But I get this error message:
    "The unattended Setup answer file contains an invalid product key. Remove the invalid key, or provide a product key valid in the answer file for unattended Setup to install Windows. »
    I don't know if it is just that I have a version of Finnish language of the OS and did not bother to write the error message in its complete form, but something very close to that anyway.
    I couldn't find any solution for this through Google. People had got this error, but it is especially in the relations of a virtual PC installation.
    Initially, I had Vista, but I then upgraded to Windows 7 with a upgrade disk. I'm trying to reinstall using this disc of Windows 7. My Windows 7 is genuine and I have not had problems.
    I think it might be because the codes to activate Vista and Windows 7 are different? Maybe I have the Vista activation code in my file without supervision when there should be order in a Win7 to make it work? Is it still possible? I would naturally opinion of someone who is a bit more up-to-date saw that I could make a mess of things just dive head on.
    Should what precautions I take to debug this problem and solve it.

    See the following topics:

    If you use an unattend.xml file to reinstall and get invalid product key, you will not want to change the file.

    See the following post:

    If this does not work, try the following:

    Boot from the Windows 7 DVD
    Click Install now
    Accept the license agreement
    When the option is displayed to select a type of installation, click (Custom advanced)

    Select the disk partition where you want to install Windows 7 click Next.

    You will receive the following warning:

    The partition you have selected may contain files from a previous Installation of Windows. If so, these files and folders will be moved to a folder named Windows.old. You will be able to access the information in Windows.old, but you will be able to use your previous version of Windows.

    (At all costs, do NOT click on anything in Format, deletion or Partition name.) So even do a custom installation, your personal files are still kept. Click OK

    The installation program will now begin installation. During installation, your computer will be restarted several times.

    Once the installation is complete, you can complete the Out of Box experience as the choice of your laptop, create a username, password, your time zone. You can then proceed to download the latest updates for Windows and reinstall your applications and drivers.
