Q: Will this setup work?

Before I say anything else, I am very new to building a computer. Ive never built one in my life. I am curious if the setup I have to far will work! I am trying to look for pretty cheap but good options for parts. So far I have a case, processor, and GPU in mind. I need ideas for the motherboard especially. I dont know how to tell if everything would work correctly, so if something would be incompatible, could you tell me?

So far I have

GPU: Nvidia GTX 760
CPU: Intel Core i7-3770k
Case: NZXT Phantom 240 Mid Tower
Hard-Drive: Seagate Barracuda 2TB HDD
Power Supply:
DVD Drive:
Operating System: Windows 7 64 Bit

Would there be anything else I need? Also what is thermal compound and Heatsink? Are these required for my setup? Please tell me if there is anything wrong with this so far and what items I should use for the unfilled spaces! Thank you all so much!

Preferred Solution: Will this setup work?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hey, so i recently got a new 5850 but i have a gts 250 currently sitting in a box. i heard somewhere that w7 supports diff card brands and i just wanna know if its true. i would love to use it for physx or to increase even more performance. thanks. and if this is possible how can i get it to work because nvidia is a little girl and made drivers to screw up ATI

A:Would this Setup Work?

there is a way to do it..... but um..... i can't remember where the article about it is
i think smarteyeball knows though, and there is prolly someone else who does.. but as of now i can't remember

Hey there so im getting a 5850 and currently i have a gts 250 not being used. i would love to put it in my system to boost juice and do some physx. can i do this? i only have vista 64 bit and uhm a p45 motherboard with 750 watts PSU so can i?

A:Would this setup work?

it should be able to do it, perhaps use psu calculator lite, just to check it out, but update both the ATI and nvidia drivers first - the Nvidia card will automatically be assigned to physx calculations

Excellent tutorial.I have few questions though.

Currently i have dual boot windows 7 and Ubuntu and i use EasyBCD to choose which OS to boot at laptop startup.Grub of ubuntu is not in control rather windows boot manager is since i installed Grub in same partition as Ubuntu itself.
So i am asking how will this setup work for me if i choose to install windows 8 on a separate partition on my laptop.

Currently i am running windows 8 in virtualbox and its not giving me satisfactory results

Any suggestion will be appreciated.

On one of my computers I have a 120 gig SSD with Win 7 and programs installed. There's also a 500 gig mechanical drive for data. I'm thinking of sticking another mechanical drive in there just for Win 8.1 and dual boot. Will this work ok? What will happen to the boot files? Will they stay with the Win 7 on the SSD or move to the Win 8 drive?
Thanks for your response,

It is best to use separate drives. See this thread. Be sure to read Brink's responses to questions:

Hey, I was wondering, I work at a franchise restaurant running NT. There is a main computer in the office, it supports several p.o.s. stations as well as being networked to corporate. I have never seen a desktop quite like this one. I assume it is specially set up for security reasons. There is no my computer icon, the command prompt has been disabled, along with many other common windows features. What sort of version of NT is this? I was there for a recent upgrade where we performed a tower swap on site, and a tech basically installed the rest of the software over the network. Is this a VPN? There is no firewall on the main computer so I assume it must be? Is this some sort of always on remote desktop connection to corporate? They can always "see in" to our computer. Just wondering, thanks.

Nope. You can only have ONE DSL/ADSL connection on a single telephone line.

I have dictionary called the Unified Medical dictionary English-Arabic

anyway, i have the ISO file
i installed it on Win7 x32 with no problem

but i tried to install it on Winx64 but it says an error like "the setup file is not compatible with Win7 x64"

I tried to search for the x64 version but i had no success, google sometimes becomes lame u know....
I tried to just copy the already installed dictionary folders to Win7x64 but it didnt open cuz it seems that it needs to be installed

So is there any way to like edit that setup.exe file or something to work on x64 version cuz it seems if i can just bypass that step it will work

or like a work around the "copy whole folders" and get it to work
I really need some help with it,
thanks in advance,

A:Is there a work around if Win7 x32 setup file wont work on Win7 x64

sometimes 32 bit applications have 16 bit installer and that won 't work on 64 bit system, but if this is not the case did you try to run installer in compatibility mode? (right click/properties/compatibility). Installer generally does three things: creates program directory, copies some DLL files to system directory and writes some data into registry. You could trace those things in Win32 installation and try manually recreate this on 64bit machine, but who knows if it will work. Also search for portable version, those don't require installation and frankly now a days I don't use anything else but portable applications unless there is no other way.

By wired, are you talking the PS/2 style or USB? If they are PS/2, is there any chance you can get your hands on a USB adapter or USB keyboard? XP will take a few seconds and then load the USB drivers, but it sounds like your ps/2 ports might have issues.

Hey all.. So i'm trying to figure out how I can setup my laptop to work with my 3 Dell S2715h monitors. I have a Latitude E7240 laptop and also have the Dell docking station that came with it. I'm trying to figure out how to get it set up so that I could go from my desktop and then switch to the laptop using all 3 monitors when it's docked. Would I need to get an HDMI splitter? All three monitors are currently hooked up via HDMI. Your input would help! Thanks

A:Setup for work laptop

Laptops can only support 2 monitors, the internal and one external. Even with a splitter it will only duplicate the same image on both external monitors, you will need to use separate output cables e.g VGA, HDMI, DVI.

One thing that would work is using a USB video adaptor for a third monitor.

As the subject says, I have a 5.1 soundcard (Audigy), 5 speakers (Creative 5300) and a sub. At the moment, only 2 speakers at a time work.

None of the speakers are defective because I can plug different speakers into the two holes that do output sound, and each speaker can output sound using these holes.

Note that I have checked that the speakers were all plugged in properly into the back of my soundcard, and that Windows XP was set to a 5 speaker setup in the control panel.

Also note that when i got the speakers and soundcard, all 5 speakers were working at once. Then suddenly one day the output dropped to 2 speakers, with no apparent change to hardware or software.

I am unsure how to proceed.... any suggestions?

I was looking at the Pent. D 805 and the asus P5rd1-vm. I noticed that this only uses DDR and not DDR2. I looked at other motherboards and they use DDR2 if they support the pent. d. Why does this support ddr and will there be preformance loss due to it using ddr.


A:Would this mobo and cpu setup work?

I am sort of "out to lunch" as to whether there is a performance difference on the same speed ram from DDR to DDR2, but the higher speeds that are available in DDR2 and the prices are also lower, make it really desirable and for certain 800 ram would be considerably faster than 400.

Hi everyone. I am looking to buy a new router and I had some questions before making the purchase. I have a Windows XP machine (does not have wifi support) that I am connecting directly to the router I have right now via an ethernet cable. I also have a laptop and a phone that I am using but they are connected to my router using wifi. I was wondering that if I got a new router, Will I still be able to connect my windows XP machine to the new router using an ethernet cable. I dont know if the router I am using right now has some special capabilities to let a Windows XP machine connect to the internet. Thank you.
Summary: Will I be able to connect a computer that does not have wifi to a new router using an ethernet cable and still receive an internet connection?

A:What router would work for my setup?

Yes, all modern routers have ethernet connection as well as wifi. It is required for configuration.

I recently decided my laptop had too much crap on it and neede a wipe. So I backed everything up and popped in my Windows XP CD to reinstall it. For some reason though, when it gets to the partition screen (where you delete/create/choose which partition), one of two things happen. Either it doesn't list any partitions and instead gives me an error message about not being able to find them, or it shows them and when I try to do anything (delete one, create a new one, etc) it blue-screens.

I have tried many tools to partition and/or wipe the hard disk and nothing works. I know there is no physical damage to it because it was working fine before I did anything.

Does anyone know what I can do to solve this? Any tools that will work for sure?

I've jumped into Vista x64 and am loving it so far, got everything worked out in hardware and software, until now.

I have a program I'm trying to install whose setup file is a "32-bit Setup Launcher" (also the description name in Task Manager).

However, nothing happens, it just remains in the windows process list but doesn't install. I've already ticked XP compatibility mode, and run as administrator.

The setup file is below (7MB). It's a special DVD format authoring tool called Discwelder Bronze.


(manually extract for the setup file).

There is a WAMP server (Win 7 pro 32bits) which needs to be accessed over the internet. Access to WAMP from another computer in the local network is ok. Access to Remote Desktop throught the internet also works. But access to WAMP over the internet does not work.

Would like to receive some instruction on how to proceed in order to enable access this web server from the internet.

Thanks in advance.

A:How to setup WAMP to work over the internet?

Does your router/default gateway set for the server have NAT running?

The issue with NAT is that any private address is changed to the public address and any connection from the internet will not know what address to reach unless originally initiated by a device (PAT)

May I ask, How are you initiating the Remote Desktop connection? Via hostname or IP address?

Also have you made sure that the correct ports are allowed on the personal firewall of the server (If any) as well as the router itself as this can block certain ports. Please note that it is possible for your ISP to block certain ports depending on the package you have with them however these are normally uncommon ports to prevent malicious attacks.

Many Thanks,

Hi guys,

I have another issue that I could really use some help with. I have a headset for gaming that I have been using for a while. When I plug it into my computer the sound works but the microphone does not. I have recently downloaded the latest version of realtek audio drivers, I have checked this headset on another windows 7 64 bit machine and the microphone works fine, I have made sure that it is plugged into the right ports and everything and that it is not muted in the program that I am trying to use it in. Is there any other checks you guys could guide me to so I can get this thing up and running.

Thanks again your help is always greatly appreciated

Note any changes that occur when you plug in your headset and let me know.

i dont' know what's wrong with mine.

A:Windows setup couldn't work on this hardware

Are you trying to in-place Upgrade from Vista? If so, try backing up your files, boot the DVD to do a formatted clean install.

Check on its Support Downloads page that your Toshiba has the latest BIOS version.

Try setting SATA controller at AHCI to start, then IDE.

Use WIndows Memory Diagnostics to test RAM, then remove all but 2gb of RAM to try again. Switch RAM sticks if this fails.

If you paid $464 for ultimate you were robbed by retailer at least 200%. I would take it back and get a retail Upgrade Ultimate version for 1/3 of that price at BestBuy or NewEgg.

Tried to fix virus.. did it work? why is computer setup different? except being slow and freezing periodically I was still worried and when I checked various support sites forums they all stated that this svchost exe message was a virus which could cause a hacker to get into your computer and it would display in your taskmanager under processes I had about or svchosts on the list so I figured this is what happened to me because I know only one of those is supposed to be there They all said that using the restore cd to get your computer to original settings was the only way to be sure it was gone I did that and now chaos has broken out I can t tell if the virus is truly gone because pretty much all of my old program files were still on C but not on the program list Plus the or svchost exe s are still on my taskmanager It no longer freezes and goes faster but I still don t wanna risk the virus not being gone My computer looked totally different I managed to find the wireless utility on a friends computer and downloaded it to do message this but the picture is terrible and really really big for both icons and writing in any window I tried to fix it but all of the control panel options were one choice only for resolution etc last but not least when I turn on my computer It asks me to choose an operating system and the two choices are both windows xp home edition I just picked the first one but have no idea what that means Did I accidentally install a second system And if so how do I fix that If anyone can help me figure out any of the above I would greatly appreciate I ll post my hijack this log below Thanks so much for any advice anyone can give I m a teacher so I depend on my laptop more than ever Logfile of HijackThis v Scan saved at PM on Platform Windows XP SP WinNT MSIE Internet Explorer v SP Running processes E WINDOWS System smss exe E WINDOWS system winlogon exe E WINDOWS system services exe E WINDOWS system lsass exe E WINDOWS system svchost exe E WINDOWS System svchost exe E Program Files Common Files Symantec Shared ccSetMgr exe E Program Files Common Files Symantec Shared ccEvtMgr exe E Program Files Common Files Symantec Shared SNDSrvc exe E Program Files Common Files Symantec Shared SPBBC SPBBCSvc exe E Program Files Common Files Symantec Shared CCPD-LC symlcsvc exe E WINDOWS System WLTRYSVC EXE E WINDOWS System bcmwltry exe E WINDOWS system spoolsv exe E Program Files Norton AntiVirus navapsvc exe E Program Files Norton AntiVirus IWP NPFMntor exe E WINDOWS Explorer EXE E WINDOWS system carpserv exe E WINDOWS system WLTRAY exe E Program Files Common Files Symantec Shared ccApp exe E PROGRA DELLSU DSAgnt exe E Program Files Messenger msmsgs exe E Program Files Common Files Symantec Shared Security Console NSCSRVCE EXE E Program Files Internet Explorer iexplore exe E Program Files Hijackthis HijackThis exe R - HKCU Software Microsoft Internet Explorer Main Start Page http www muc edu O - BHO NAV Helper - A F D D-E - D -B A - BB FDD - E Program Files Norton AntiVirus NavShExt dll O - Toolbar Norton AntiVirus - C E A- F - E-B E- B - E Program Files Norton AntiVirus NavShExt dll O - HKLM Run CARPService carpserv exe O - HKLM Run Broadcom Wireless Manager UI E WINDOWS system WLTRAY exe O - HKLM Run ccApp quot E Program Files Common Files Symantec Shared ccApp exe quot O - HKCU Run D...

Hi lbsweetz,

Welcome to TSG!

First, svchost.exe usually has multiple copies running at the same time. I run WinXP Pro SP2 and usually have 4 instances of svchost.exe running at any one time. I think I may have counted up to six at one time. So, that is not the issue unless your svchost.exe has been hijacked by malware that is using it to disguise itself.

You can choose to wait for one of the security gurus to analyze your HijackThis log and give you guidance on what to do, and while you are waiting you can try a full PC scan from one of the following websites to clean your machine up:

I got a buddy who's starting to dabble a lot in photo and video work (mainly photography and tapes to digital/DVD conversions). His 600 GB C: drive just filled up and instead of installing a bigger internal or external drive I imagine I should do more than throw storage at the problem. I haven't had a client who works with multimedia before so what kind of setup is recommended in terms of storage and workspace/scratch space? A NAS server with a couple of TB drives in a RAID to meet storage demands? Or Firewire 800 external drive instead? 10,000 or 15,000 RPM drives so he doesn't get dropped frames during video conversions?

Thanks in advance

P.S. - He's running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit and most of his equipment isn't newer than those equipped with regular Firewire (400)

Switch for a regular PS/2 keyboard for the time of the installation, you'll be able to use your own keyboard once Windows is installed.

Make sure you've backed up all your data on a different physical drive before you go the format/reinstall from scratch way.

Just setting up windows 10 with a 256GB SSD and 1TB HDD - got the Windows installed on the SSD and setup HDD as a D Drive for Data.

I have gone to Settings > System > Storage and changed the default documents, music, pictures "Save Locations" to the D Drive (HDD) so it doesn't fill my SSD. The issue I have is when I go to Documents and save it still saves to the C Drive Documents folder instead.

1) If this setting doesn't change the location for documents, pictures folders whats the point of it?

2) I understand I can manually change the Documents, Pictures & Music location if I right click on them but will this have any effect on the system? As in does this need to be changed in the registry so everything in the system knows the Documents is now on the D Drive?

Thanks for help

A:SnapGear SG300 Setup VPN to work with TheGeenBow Client

Based on my guess as to the tunnel settings, your local interface is probably incorrect. You need to use the interface which as the IP address. The tunnel settings define which interface you are accepting VPN tunnel on. Obviously you're not going to establish a VPN tunnel on the private side from a WAN side/outside host.

Also, I'm guessing you're trying to allow a VPN client from across the internet to connect to this VPN router but with the Netgear router as your ISP connected edge router in between.

If i boot from the Windows Setup DVD , or a repair DISK I've made, and i choose to do a repair, nothing happens, it either says it repaired the disk but nothing changes, or says it doesn't find anything to fix.

I'm attaching a ntbtlog.txt in case anyone makes heads or tails with it. It worries me that i see so many things not loading properly.

Hey guys, I have a little project at work that involves converting the following comma path to get the end result I need.

The conversion path goes as follows..

NIC Card 1 DHCP (company network)

NIC Card 2 - STATIC (private network)

Ethernet to Fiber - What IP to route through on NIC2?
Fiber to Ethernet - What IP to communicate with the one above?

NIC2 we use as a backdoor in case NIC1 fails or the coma by network is down, that's why we set it to 10.xx.

I think I am close to getting it working but no luck so far. NIC1 has a gateway since it's DHCP but NIC2 Does not have this option. The Ethernet to fiber converters also request the default gateway but as I mentioned NIC2 is not able to be setup with one. Do I use the one on NIC1 or am I way off?

Any help appreciated!

I have a Dell E520, and well, it sucks. But i'm not buying a new computer. So!, I have decided to just upgrade it. I want to het the ASUS Radeon HD 4870, but with that, I also need a new PSU; and on top of all of that, I need a flexible riser card!

So heres the links to the three things I want/need to get.


HD 4870:

Flexible Riser Card:

Now what i'm planning to do is replace my 305Watt Dell PSU with that one, stick the riser card in my PCIe slot, connect the HD 4870 to the riser card, and then ...???...!!!...Win?

Anyone know if this setup should work?

A:Will This Video Card / PSU / Riser Card Setup Work?

What would you need the riser card for? I see plenty of space in the case from the looks of it but even if you do use the riser card, the video card may be blocking airflow from and to the CPU. Check the dimensions to be sure IMO.

Otherwise, everything else looks great.

Ive read the Instructions on how to setup XP to dual-boot with Vista...
However, im concerned (and someone mentioned it happened to them in the thread)
that when XP SETUP is finished with the TX part of setup and reboots PC to go into the
rest of setup (GUI XP SETUP)) it wont continue....?
is this right>? ive read elsewhere that if the partitions for XP are created in Vista that it wont boot into the rest of setup....

I could make the partition during XP setup if this will help?


A:Vista/XP Dual Boot - Will XP setup continue into GUI setup after reboot of 1st part.?

When I did my dual boot [using win2k / vista] I used an existing partition that was created by vista. No problem at all. It is a little more difficult than say installing win2k after xp however as long as you follow the instructions there are no problems.

As always make an image of your system before you start. This way if something does go wrong, it is a simple matter to restore the image and be back where you started from.

I have several Asus Eee netbooks that I'm getting set up to use at my school. I had some parent volunteers helping me get them ready to deploy, and one of the netbooks was plugged in to initially power it up, but then hard-shut-down before Windows could run through its initial setup.

Now when I boot up the netbook, and it attempts to go through the initial windows setup "Setup is starting services", and then throws an error message:
The computer restarted unexpectedly or encountered an unexpected error. Windows installation cannot proceed. To install Windows, click "OK" to restart the computer, and then restart the installation.I restart, and the cycle continues. This happens whether I try to boot normally or in safe mode.

I've got no CD-drive attached to it, so I'm not sure what I can do to break this error cycle. Any suggestions/tools/ideas?

Not sure how you deployed them, but if Startup Repair doesn't help when run from System Recovery Options then I would redeploy the image or run Factory Recovery from its partition after backing up the disks.

If you don't have one and they are same hardware, simply backup one's image using Win7 backup imaging or free Macrium - Image your system then boot System Recovery options to Recover Using an Image from its external storage location which you have connected.

If they are not same exact hardware or Image hangs at startup, SysPrep the original before deploying to remove all drivers, activation, SID and HID's.

I'm trying to install windows xp, after formatting, it goes thru the process of copying the xp files and automatically reboots. Now after rebooting, instead of this installation to continue, it just goes back to the same setup process again i.e right from the beginning again of wanting to format and repeating the same process again. It does not continue with the installation as it normally does. Xp disk is good. no problem with it.
One thing strange I noted is when booting with the XP disk in, it automatically goes thru with the XP setup without asking 'Click any key to boot from CD-Rom'
Any ideas to solve this? Thank you all in advance

Have you tried launching it in "Safe Mode"? That would be the first thing I would try, and see if it will load past that screen. If it does, then there is probably something installed on the device that is causing the problem and you will need to see about uninstalling it.

If it doesn't move past, and still gets stuck, you may have a hardware problem.

I recently purchased a refurbished HP 6005 with windows 7 Professional. On the initial boot up I got to the windows setup screen asking for the country/language. It was at this point the power was disrupted and restarted the computer. Every time I tried to run windows the computer would restart. I also tried in safe mode which did not work. I then went into system restore mode to try that but am not able to complete because I get the restore error message 'Error 1'. Unfortunately I only have the product key and not the actual disc since i bought refurbished. Any suggestions on how to complete the setup so I can use my computer?

A:Power was disrupted during setup and now unable to setup.

According to the Troubleshooting Guide, you can restore to factory new state:

Press the F11 key at startup to boot into the recovery partition
and run a factory restore.

I have just finished moving my OS from a 3TB hard drive to an SSD. I now have 2 matching drives that I would like to set up as a RAID array. A couple of questions:

1. Do I need to backup the data that will be on the RAID before setting it up and then move it back once it has been setup?

2. Do I format them before I go into the RAID setup utility or does that utility do it for me?

3. Will the RAID just appear as a single drive letter on my system?

4. Evidently I have the choice between RAID0 (for performance) and RAID1 (for redundancy). I hhave an extensive back up scheme in place so is there any reason not to use RAID0?

I know that I enable the RAID in the BIOS and then there is a place in the boot sequence to get into the RAID setup.

A:RAID Setup - Alienware - A few setup questions?

What are you hoping to get out of a RAID0 setup? If you have User data on the hard drive, such as movies, music, documents, pics, etc....there is no need for RAID0. Hard drives are more than fast enough for that kind of data.

Generally speaking, all of the anti virus programs have uninstall tools that you have to use to get rid of them completely. So you might want to go to the Avast website.

I am trying to install Windows XP Pro onto my machine as a dual boot operating system, it will enter the txt portion of the setup but not gui mode after the restart. I've tried to make a new partition on my hard drive, reset my bios, change boot order, everything I can think of to no avail. I've searched the forums and couldn't find any real help.

Any suggestions?

A:Win XP Setup will not enter GUI mode setup

Just got off work, thought I'd include more information. My current main OS is Windows 7, when I hit Enter to go into GUI setup mode, the screen goes to black, no cursor, no blinking underscore, just blank. I remove the cd and when I try to boot into the XP OS I get the hal.dll error or the missing/corrupt file error. So I load into Windows 7 to check the partition out and see that there is no ntldr, no ntdetect, and no boot.ini (assuming this is all installed in the gui portion of the setup)

Still baffled with this.

I was having problems with my Maple Story, so I un-installed and re-downloaded the program. However, when I tried to open the setup wizard, it gave me the error:

Error reading setup initialization file

I looked online for troubleshooting solutions, and I have so far found two options:

-Re-download because the error could be the result of a failed download that wasn't identified when the file was downloaded.

-Find and delete old files that could be stopping the file from being reaad properly.

I need help with the second solution, as in how I search for those files. Also, any other solutions for this problem would be much appreciated.

What on EARTH process is always running in the background to make my hard drive chatter away for literally nearly - minutes work 10 work work HD my and makes Windows and work and after a bootup and we're talking with a FRESH install Some something is running a LOT in the background but task manager is absolutely worthless in pointing out what is going on It even gets to the point Windows 10 makes my HD work and work and work and work where after having the Edge browser opened and perusing the internet for awhile things get so bogged down and windows is too stupid to tell me exactly WHY it's bogged down things get to where even a mouse click is delayed upwards of seconds lol Sometimes things completely freeze and pushing the reset button is the only way out I've gone as far as downloading Avasts 'emergency startup' disc and booting from it thinking there might be a virus but it found nothing although I'm wondering if it's loading a small portion of windows which if it is and a virus or malware is in that small portion booting to the disc and running the anti-virus software is pointless maybe I should try it with a linux based emergency disc

Alright guys, I have just refreshed my pc because I was having numerous problems with it and it turned out to be a bad stick of RAM. However, now I am having software issues. Whenever I try to make a call on the desktop version of skype, the program crashes. Whenever I try to open HP support assistant, the program crashes. When i am using the metro app version of skype I get a weird artifacting type problem on any of the buttons. I have this same problem in internet explorer and on Netflix. Netflix will not play on Chrome. It will play on IE, but with the button artifacting problems. My computer will not pair via bluetooth with my phone. What would be your recommended course of action? I don't know where to begin. I have tried updating drivers and the like but it has not helped.

Thank you

Microsoft zune won't work either. It crashes when trying to set up.

Hi guys, wonder if anyone could shed some light on my issue please?
I am trying to reinstall XP SP2 on an Acer Aspire 5100 laptop, as it would not boot up correctly and hang. I tried initially to repair the installation from the Disk, but setup would load all the drivers and when it gets to the "Setup is starting windows" everything stops and just hangs.
I have a copy of unbuntu and i could boot to that off the live CD, and could browse the HDD contents. I then used the partition manager thing in unbuntu and made the disk one partition (thinking the partitions were screwed and opted to try to start from scratch!) This however has not cured the problem, and now im out of ideas... other than trying to install unbuntu only to prove the HDD isnt knackered!

Any help is greatly appreciated!
thanks in advance

What were you upgrading? Sounds like you need to do a clean install and possibly your cd or your cd drive is shot or just dirty.

Like an idiot, I dropped my laptop the other day. It kept working at first, but crashed a couple of hours later. Now, when I boot-up, I get the following error message:

"Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: System32/Drivers/Ntfs.sys. You can attempt to repari this file by starting Windows Setup using the original Setup CD-ROM. Select 'r' at the first screen to start repair."​
I've inserted the setup CD (in an external CD-Rom drive, since my laptop doesn't have its own drive). But for some reason, setup won't start, and I keep coming back to the above error message. How do I start setup?

I'm running XP Home.
