Why my PC does not restart during the installation of XP?

I want to install XP on my desktop and its all good and restarts after having pre installed (when windows copies the files), then the windows loading logo shows, then it starts to install with the control points on the right as follows:

@ collecting information
@ dynamic update
@ preparation facility
Installation of windows
O development of installation

It gets to half way with the installation of windows then restarts whenever it gets to this point. It fails in the regional and Language Options Page. I know I did right, see the link.  http://Windows.Microsoft.com/en-us/Windows-XP/help/Setup/install-Windows-XP I disconnected everything (tv, extra fans, of the additional USB ports for the front and the extra RAM card sound card, graphics card,) and tried again from scratch. Everything is plugged is monitor (on board), power supply, USB mouse with a connector PS/2, USB keyboard, 1 x 1 GB RAM, 1 x 80 GB HD and 1 x DVD player.

Thanks in advance.


-Remove the existing disk partitions before performing a new installation?

If so, follow these steps to do the same thing:

a. Insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into your CD-ROM drive.
b. at the welcome page in the Setup program, press ENTER to continue.
c. press F8 to accept the license agreement for Windows XP.
d. If an existing Windows XP installation is detected, you will be asked to fix it. At this point, press ESC (not repair).
e. the screen now lists all existing partitions and unpartitioned for each hard drive space. Use the cursor/arrow keys to choose a place to create the new partition. Press D to delete an existing partition, or press C to create a new partition in the unpartitioned space.

If you press D to delete an existing partition, you must then press L (or press ENTER and then press L if it is the system partition) to confirm that you want to delete this partition.

Repeat this procedure for each of the existing partitions that you want to delete (or move) to create your new partition. When all necessary partitions are deleted, you can then select the remaining unpartitioned space and then press C to create new partitions.

Note: If you want to create a partition where there is already at least one partition, you must first delete the existing partitions and then create the new partition. Type the size in megabytes (MB) that you want the new partition to be. And then press ENTER. Alternatively, you can just press ENTER to create the partition using all of the available space (for example to create the largest possible partition).

If you want to install Windows XP, use the arrow keys to select the partition where you want to install Windows XP, and then press ENTER.

  • Computer does not restart during the installation of XP after copying files

    I do a new install of Windows XP on an ASUS laptop A3G of 2005.

    After that he said that the CD has finished copying the files, I've been waiting so he could restart.  Restart the computer, but the screen shows only a blinking white line.  Nothing happened after that so I restarted the computer and the installation process went through again but I found myself stuck in the same exact spot.

  • Problem: My computer hangs and does not restart after the installation of MS Update KB2479628.

    Tuesday February 11 I turned my hp Compaq nx7300 off I saw that she was installing updates I thought that nothing of what I had set to automatic updates. On Wedndesday that I have tried to re - turn on my laptop it installed updates. I got a black screen with white writing. The laptop then ran restoration of boot, but he was not able to repair itself and turns off. I tried to turn it back on a few times that I was in total disbelief that a MS Update would do this to my computer, it still does not.

    I tried to start the computer in safe mode, but it does not work.

    I tried to do a system restore but evertime I tried it there was an error, I tried all eight restore points but all back "an unspecified error occurred during system 0x800700b7 restore.

    "In restoration of start I clicked on ' view diagnostic and repair details" it said all tests have been performed with success, but at the bottom it says ' root cause found - boot critical file D:\Windows\system32\ntkrnlpa.exe is corrupt.

    I had to reinstall windows 7 pro three times so far and have now developed to the point that it is KB2479628 update of MS that is causing the problem. I the have not installed this time and have had updates to the manual

    What can I do about this problem, I spent at least 20 hours on this problem now, and looking for the many other forum of people seem to have similar problems. I'm worried that KB2479628 will settle by accident when I want to install some other updates?

    My computer laptop originally had Vista Business top but has been upgraded to Windows 7 32 bit, clean install, I use Microsoft Security Essentials, I've never had installed norton or macafee.

    Thank you very much for all your time and your help is greatly appreciated, I'm sure I'll be at the time when SP1 is available.

    Until then your your :-)

  • Why channel Volume does not appear in the Panel of the applied effects (first 12 elements trial version)?

    Hi people

    doew anyone know why Channel Volume does not appear in the Panel of the applied effects (first 12 elements trial version)?

    Thank you very much in advance



    I have the book, but this screenshot has been extremely help.

    The answer is...

    Like I said, the default Panel in the range of effects of applied effects/Applied / Motion and opacity.

    Once you apply fx effects Audio/Effects/Channel Volume effect to your audio clip, you will see the channel Volume Panel in the Palette of effects applied and the movement and opacity.

    I'll give you screenshots if necessary.

    Please try to prove guilt.

    I have a HP Slimline s7410
    XP Home Edition SP3
    I had Norton free with Comcast, but since I have no more Comcast became Norton expired. So I uninstalled Norton and installed the free version of Avira, he scanned the computer and it was clean. I went to reboot and now it does not start.
    I have a cd/dvd drive of work.
    I don't have an XP bootable installation CD

    My system worked well until: I installed the free version of Avira

    Whenever I select one on the XP advanced options options menu start, it goes into a boot loop.
    I turn off the auto reboot system failure although it seems only work once, as the next time he's trying to start up it goes into the boot loop.

    Here's what my BSOD looks like:

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

    My first suggestion is to do a system restore at this time point.

    second suggestion is to keep your external drive connected to the pc at all times.  only detach when necessary.   of course, it would be better to install a second hard drive in the computer instead.   in any case, keep your personal files out of the system disk is a wise thing to do.   You can also download and store files for free on the Microsoft Skydrive site.

    third suggestion is to keep your system set upward through executing a check disk and Defrag at least once a month.   Basically, you can open the Explorer and right-click on the drive letter.  then select Properties, and on the Tools tab, you will have the opportunity to run the disk check.  then reboot and do a Defrag.   where this disk check fails, then you will need to run it to the drive via a bootable cd prompt.

    Interestingly, I don't know if the bootable cd that you made you allows to run the disk check.

    so my suggestion is to do a series of tests using your cd bootable your computer works.  see if you can actually run a chkdsk/r at the moment with them.    If Yes, then if your constant worries are having bad sectors on the hard disk, chkdsk/r will identify and mark so windows will jump on them.    in any case, see if your boot at the moment media can run a check disk at all, and let me know.

    fifth proposal is to install "microsoft security essentials" like your anti virus program.  even if you have run ubantu, it is not likely to have been an infected copy.   anti - are most critical virus for windows and not not so much for ubantu or linux is because windows is a system of world class operations.    the people who make the virus deliberately their engineer for the windows operating system.   If, however, ubantu and linux have been just as popular as Windows, virus engineers would make infections for the o.s. too.     Although they no doubt, attacks are more frequent for the windows os.

  • XP Home Edition does not start without the installation CD after reinstall.

    I reinstalled XP Home Edition on my PC without formatting the drive first in order to keep all of my data.  I have installed all service packs.  However, for some reason, I had to call Microsoft to get validated.  The only problem I have now is that it does not start without the installation CD in the drive.  I have XP on the half before the C drive and me on the back of half.  The reader is a digital WD800JBRTL of Western.  Well it worked like that for years. Why can I now not start without the CD?


    It seems that the NTLDR file is not on the C: drive. NTLDR is the boot loader for all versions of Windows.

    You can perform a Windows XP repair installation & check if you are able to start normally.

  • ITunes does not start after the installation of Windows 10

    ITunes does not start after the installation of Windows 10, 1511 version (OS Build 10586.164). ITunes version, 6 GB RAM, Intel i3 @3.3 GHz. Itunes and Ipodserver module will run by Manager jobs, but Itunes does not open. iTunes starts in SafeMode as explained in the link below (hold SHIFT and control on your keyboard while you open iTunes).

    Fix unexpectedly closes or problems of launch in iTunes for Windows - Apple Support

    Solution, according to this link, is:

    If the problem does not occur in Mode safe, remove any third party plug-ins iTunes: solving problems with third party plug-ins - Support Apple iTunes but the link has been archived, and I can't find any plug-ins installed iTunes. Any other ideas?

    For general advice, see troubleshooting problems with iTunes for Windows updates.

    The steps described in the second case are a guide to remove everything related to iTunes and then rebuild what is often a good starting point, unless the symptoms indicate a more specific approach.

    Review the other boxes and other support documents list to the bottom of the page, in case one of them applies.

    More information area has direct links with the current and recent buildings if you have problems to download, must revert to an older version or want to try the version of iTunes for Windows (64-bit-for old video cards) as a workaround for problems with installation or operation, or compatibility with QuickTime software or a third party.

    Backups of your library and device should be affected by these measures but there are links to backup and recovery advice there.

  • Error 28000 (licensing module does not have) on the installation of Acrobat DC.

    I receive the error 28000 (licensing module does not have) on the installation of Acrobat DC. The installation is on a new computer Windows 10 Pro. Installation was attempted at the start using Dell's digital delivery program, but have also tried installing after downloading directly from Adobe. I used the cleaning tool and tried to install it again with the same result. I tried installing using the administrator account with all services non - Microsoft Startup and antivirus disabled and received the same error message. I restored the system to a point before the initial setup attempt was made and tried to install it again and received the same error.
