HP Pavillion Will Not Start
I have an HP Pavillion a335w running Windows XP SP2 Intel Pentium 4 2.5 GHz/400 MHz..I've had this computer for a little over 3 years and I've never had a problem with it. But This morning when I tried turning it on it gave me this message:"We apologize for the inconvenience, but Windows did not start successfully. A recent hardware or software change might have caused this.If your computer stopped responding, restarted unexpectedly, or was automatically shut down to protect your files and folders, choose Last Known Good Configuration to revert to the most recent settings that worked.If a previous startup attempt was interrupted due to a power failure or because the Pwer or Reset button was pressed, or if you aren't sure what caused the problem, choose Start Windows Normally."

New Laptop With Pro No Recovery Disk
My old laptop died and I now have a brand new, factory sealed Toshiba Satellite Pro, model L300. It came with trial versions of MS Office. I don't want to use the trial version since I have a perfectly good version that I porchased a few years ago. (It's the Teacher and student Edition 2003.) At first I tried installing the 2003 version that I own. It seems to go through the install procedure to the end, but when I try to open OUTLOOK, I get an error that states the MAPI32.DLL" is corrupt.

I spoke with Toshiba but they were not a great help. The told me to go the ADD?Remove and remove the MSOFFICE trial version, which I did. I also removed the 2003 Version
so that I could "start from scratch", so to speak, trying to keep things "graceful".
The same error occurs after installing the 2003 software, and oddly, some of the
2007 software still seems to be there!. Probably residing in the registry somewhere.

HP Pavillion Running XP Pro
I have a HP Pavillion running XP Pro. After a Microsoft Auto update IE7 refuses to display any webpage. I have tried restoring to an earlier date but none of the restore points work. I downloaded Mozilla Firefox on my Acer laptop and installed the downloaded file onto the Pavillion. Firefox took all of it's settings from IE7, and works the perfectly. When I shut down my laptop the same Microsoft auto update occurred and promptly killed IE7 on the laptop. I tried removing the updates and have completely removed IE7, downloaded a fresh version from Microsoft and re-installed it but the problem remains the same neither the Pavillion or the Laptop will display a webpage using IE7, but Firefox works perfectly on both. I have also tried turning off the firewall. I am using Kaspersky Internet Security suit.I like Firefox better than IE7 but I want to fix the problem as a matter of principle, any help would be much appreciated.

Reformatting Onto Laptop:reinstalling Disk To Be Loaded?
I was given an old Dell laptop to try to see if I can fix it. I'm not sure what was done to mess it up, but I thought I'd stick the reinstallation disk in and see what happens. When I put the reinstallation disk into the laptop to reinstall it won't kick in and automatically play. The laptop just sits there. I try to get windows xp to reload using F5, but still nothing. I tried every option under F5 and nothing will load. Its like the computer doesn't have anything in it. How can I just get the reinstallation disk to load?

Upgrade HP Pavillion Win98 To XP
HP Pavillion 8485Z.I've tried a couple of different things here.When upgrading from a plain disk (no OS) or when booting from the XP upgrade CD (with or without OS). The application loads some stuff and then proclaims "Setup is starting windows" and there it sits forever.When launching it from the system with Win98 installed, it tells me that the CD is for upgrade only (in spite of what the written instructions say) and that it can't install because it can't find C:WindowsWINNT32Win9xUPGW95UPG.DLL. Never mind that Win98 doesn't have a WINNT directory.So what's the next step? Do I create this directory and attempt to find the DLL and copy it to it?

Pavillion 713 HP Recovery Partition
A friend's HP 713 was badly trashed by trojans (various) making it just possible to get the user data off and ready to use the HP_Recovery process to re-install Windows XP and the standard apps. I started everything going OK and then we encountred an electrical blackout.When power returned and I powered up, the dreaded "hal.dll is missing " came up. I used the windows XP SP1 CD I had received with my HP laptop to successfully re-install XP but I haven't got the correct calls (short-cuts) to activate the HP_RECOVERY and I am not sure that the root directory of HP_RECOVERY is still OK..There are several folders one called MiniNT which has within it a system32 folder.I suspect it is a cutdown windows system that rebuilds the real system.

Reinstall On Toshiba Laptop - Microsoft Disk Would Even Install
I want to reinstall Windows XP on our Toshiba laptop but I don't want to reinstall from the Toshiba disks due to the bloatware that the disks installs (like the disk utility, antivirus, etc software). I'd like to install the OS from a Microsoft Windows XP CD but wondered if the Microsoft disk would even install onto the Toshiba and if so, would the laptop function properly? Thanks.

Reformatting A Laptop Without A System Disk (cd Drive Is Broken)?
I have a laptop that I just got my hands on, it's a Dell Inspiron 8200, has windows XP Pro (service pack 2) on it. I need to reformat it, however, the cd drive doesnt really work anymore (this is the second cd drive its had). I would rather not spend money on a cd drive or anything, and was wondering if there was anyway to use a boot disk to format it, then if there was any way to install network drivers and use a network to install windows. That at least is my present theory of how to go about this, but I'm not sure if it's even possible, and I'm searching around online right now.

Laptop GATEWAY MX6453 - Hard Disk Sound
I started facing a problem recently with my 3 years old laptop GATEWAY MX6453.
I have looked in the forum, but couldnt find someone with the exact problem.
My laptop suddenly started to freeze (temporarily) when I try to load any application. The freeze time could take 2 to 5 min (while the hard disk led is lit solid). I cannot hear the hard disk sound during this freeze. I could move the mouse but cannot click on anything. It just stops responding for about 5 min before the application loads and works normally.
