Specs: windows 2000
Hello i got a serious problem my computer wont open
i just bought a new computer and it has windowws 2000 and i wanted to put windows XP so my first i made when i got it was :
I opened it and windows was opening but it said ARRET DU SYSTEME and after it closed
2nd step i made was:
in the BIOS i put the Cd-Drive before the Hard drive so i can reformat my computer and i put the cd in the Cd drive and started my computer and i started to reformate it and had a damge folder
the 3rd step i did is that i closed my computer reopned it and it says
Primary Master.....NONE
Primary Slave.....NONE
Sec. Master....NONE
Sec. Slave.....NONE
Andd it stop openning
Also when i go in the BIOS it says IDE...None CR-Drive....NONE
and also when it continues to load it stops at DISK FAILURE INSERT SYSTEME DISK AND PRESS ENTER
I put the windows Cd in and still says the same thing
after the last step i made was
i took the batterie off set all the BIOS as default and still doesnt want to load and now my computer doesnt even Starts running

so i guess my computer is srewed unless somebody helps me
Thanks A lot

Do you mean a second hand computer? Where did you buy it? What make & model is it? Where did you get the XP CD & is it in a different language than 2000?

A "new computer" would not have W2K on it so obviously it's not "new". Was W2K working before you tried to install XP? W2K is a direct upgrade path so all you really had to do was boot into W2K, pop in the XP CD & follow the instructions. Now it sounds like you either have a hardware problem or you screwed up the BIOS settings.

The guy who sold it to you isn't your friend. Tell him you want a refund.

Is the OS in French? What about the XP CD?

Try F1 or DEL to enter the setup, restore the BIOS to defaults.

Go into the BIOS, set drive detection to auto & set the CD drive to boot first. Then boot from the XP CD.

You said you had the XP CD in French. Now you're saying that you don't have it.

$20 or not, it sounds like your "friend" may have ripped you off.

You're not gonna be able to do a thing until you can get the drives recognized & the fact that they're not being recognized indicates a hardware problem. The 1st thing you should do is open the case & make sure the cables are connected to the drives correctly...also check the master/slave jumper settings.

It has to be a bootable CD, not just work in the drive.
