I had a problem with my PC, which would not re-start. Left it for many months then thought if I wiped the hard drive and loaded the new Vista full programme it would all work again. This has sadly failed. It seems to load the CD but then gets stuck.
How can I restart it and then load the new system to get my pc back?
Thanks for that. I find I can get an extra 1GB of RAM - would you have confidence in this being sufficient to run Vista?
Apparently the BIOS was done before loading the CD, but maybe we have many little problems side by side?
I am attempting to get a copy of XP to install but as I have the new Vista programme I would dearly like to install that for preference.
Have you any other recommendations for me. I now would like to adapt my computer to run a new small business, but my children's computer is used for online gamin etc - which is where I think my computer started to go wrong.
I am also strapped for cash at the moment so investment innew products would have to be extremely limited.
1 gb will run Vista OK, but 2 gb and it really flies. It's not that straightforward though, I think a lot depends on your hardware and whether any compatability problems exist. It may just be that 256mb ram and Vista just doesn't want to know.
I had similar problems some time ago and what I did was Installed one of the Linux OS using the whole Disc telling it to erase Windows, made sure it worked ok (which it did with no problems) and then installed Windows XP Pro. Problem was solved,
