Windows ME does not work on Tecra M3?

Hi there I just bought a new laptop, it seems to be an older model Tecra M3 (PTM30U-OE8017, I can't find this anywhere model number on this page or other sites Web of Toshiba, I was wondering if someone could also help with recognition product. This is what I bought http://www.factorydirect.ca/catalog/clearance/clea_product_spec.php?pcode=TO0163)

I thought that the computer would have accompanied the XP disc (see announcement), the guy at the counter told me he didn't and I had to get the disc. It seemed legal and I really thought I was too buy the OS. I know not if only to have the sticker on the bottom of the computer laptop valid me go and get a copy of XP around now and install it.

So now that im trying to install Windows me that I have a copy of from one computer, I bought before, installation went well, however, in the last step it seemed just to stop and I had to reset manually.

Now windows only loads in safe mode, I am a student with a budget and right now don't want to buy a new version of XP/7, the site does not list drivers for WinME, does that mean its not supported?

Hello

This Tecra notebook was designed for Windows XP Home edition. WME has been used on old books and for a short time and it is certainly not taken in charge for this model of laptop. So forget it.

What you need is Windows XP Home edition Professional. Product key inside has nothing to do with the OS to install. This old Tecra initially shipped with preinstalled operating system and product keys belongs to this original recovery image.

Bet you can do now is to install own WXP and more later all the drivers, tools and utilities.
This model of laptop US?
What is the name of the exact model (M3 - xxx)?

  • Update of Windows XP does not work, how do I stop the Office 07/10 updates?

    For these last months, the web version of Windows Update does not work with XP. When you click on the button for Express or custom installation, the stalls of system looking for updates. So I had to put windows to warn me of updates instead of going on the site, but now it keeps wanting to download me updates for Office 2007 and 2010, but I do not own these products (I use Office 2003).  I could not stop, even when I ticked the box does not warn me of those more. Finally I went to the site and found an option to disable Microsoft Update, which said I could always download the updates to the site, but I can't because he's trying to force me to re - download Microsoft Update.

    What is going on?  I don't like the new Microsoft Update as it keeps nagging me to download updates for the products that I have not yet owned. How can I update Windows XP only?  This is very fustrating.

    Hi Steve,.

    Follow these steps.

    Go to Start | Settings | Control Panel and double click on automatic updates. I'll explain why later.

    Then, tick the option at the bottom to turn off automatic updates, and then click apply/OK.

    Then, go to start, run, copy and paste this command and click OK: services.msc

    In the list of Services, you can see Background Intelligent Transfer Service ?

    Here's a pix what he looks like.

    If it is not listed, follow these steps to register the BITS service.

    Open the Windows search tool, copy / paste the following text, and then click Search: qmgr.dll

    Research should show this file in the following locations:

    C:\Windows\System32
    C:\WINDOWS\ServicePackFiles\i386
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\bits

    You might only see qmgr.dll in C:\WINDOWS\system32 depending on your configuration.

    Then, go to start, run and copy/paste: regsvr32 qmgr.dll and click OK

    Do the same with this file: regsvr32 qmgrprxy.dll

    Reboot the system and then copy / paste this command into the field run:
    %windir%\System32\rundll32.exe setupapi, InstallHinfSection DefaultInstall 132 %windir%\inf\qmgr.inf

    If you are prompted to insert the Windows installation CD, ignore this and in the dialog below, replace the path C:\WINDOWS\ServicePackFiles\i386

    If you could only see the file in C:\WINDOWS\system32, change the path to that instead.

    Restart the PC and then go to the Services and you should be able to see BITS in the list.

    Double click on it and then on the general tab, click the Start button to start the service manually. This is just a test to make sure that it works correctly.

    If you get 2 error: cannot find the specified file, click on start, then run again and copy / paste the following command, and then click OK:
    Tracking Add HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\BITS\Parameters /v ServiceDll /t REG_EXPAND_SZ /d %windir%\System32\qmgr.dll

    Reboot again and try once more to start the PIECES. It should work fine now, but in the unlikely case where it fails again, run the following command, and then press ENTER:
    Reg add HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\BackupRestore\FilesNotToBackup

    Reboot once more and then do the following.

    Go to this link and install the IE8 December Update:
    http://www.Microsoft.com/en-GB/download/details.aspx?ID=41404

    If you use IE7, use this link instead:
    http://www.Microsoft.com/en-GB/download/details.aspx?ID=41442

    Finally, go to the Windows Update site and you should be able to download normally.

    If this is the case, re - enable automatic updates in Control Panel.

    You must be at Service Pack 3 level before you can use Windows updates.

    To determine which service pack is currently installed on your computer, follow these steps:

    1. Click Startand then click run.
    2. Copy and paste, or type the following command, and then click OK:

    winver

    A dialog box displays the version of Windows and the service pack that is currently installed on your computer.

    If you haven't already done so, you will need to install the SP2 and SP3 (SP1 note no longer exists).

    Hi my NameJoel,

    See the methods mentioned below and check if that helps.
     
    Method 1:
    How to troubleshoot an installation fails on Windows XP Service Pack 3
    Note: Antivirus software can help protect your computer against viruses and other security threats. In most cases, you should not disable your antivirus software. If you need to disable temporarily to install other software, you must reactivate as soon as you are finished. If you are connected to the Internet or a network, while your antivirus software is disabled, your computer is vulnerable to attacks.
     
    Note: A firewall is software or hardware that checks information coming from the Internet or a network. Then the firewalleither blocks information or allows information to pass to your computer. If the information is blocked or throughdepends spent on your firewall settings. A firewall can prevent malicious software (such as worms) to access your computer through a network or the Internet. A firewall can also help stop your computer from malware sent to other computers. Windows XP, Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2) and Windows XP Service Pack 3 (SP3) include firewall software.

    Steps to take before you install Windows XP Service Pack 3
    Note: Disable your antivirus software is not usually recommended, some software antivirus prevents certain system changing files. This can cause the Windows XP SP3 installation failure. To make sure that you manage to install Windows XP SP3, temporarily disable your antivirus software, including any third-party antispyware and firewall program. To do this, right-click on the icon for your antivirus program, and then click on disable. The antivirus program icon typically appears in the bottom right corner of the computer screen.
     
    Important: Make sure that you enable the antivirus software after you install Windows XP SP3.
     
    Hope this information helps.
