Windows XP Install problems with new Hard Drive

Recommended Posts

First go into the BIOS for your hard disk and make sure you have it set to boot from the CD/DVD first in the boot priority.

Then after you set it and save it, reboot and during the reboot watch the screen closely. It should prompt you (Press space or some other key to boot off CD/DVD). Hit the key and it should begin to boot on the Windows XP CD and begin the install.

      Hey Mr Groove! Love the site and really enjoyed your last article!
       
      I have an idea for a new article on groovypost for you! You need to write something on all the different search syntax that can be used in outlook 2007!
       
      I only use a few of the features but would love to get the inside scoop.

      How do you create an MS WORD TEMPLATE to create a flyer (8.5 X 11) with pull tag telephone numbers; also the ability to insert a scanned graphic?

      So, I have an Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop which are notorious for having overheating problems. I had really big issues last year where my laptop would just shut-off because it was way too hot. From then on I've really looked into the problem. I even opened up my laptop and cleaned out all the dust that was between the fan and heat-sink.
      Anyways, now my laptop has been fine, and I haven't had any recent issues of it shutting down because of overheating. I was just curious what are acceptable levels of internal temperatures and are there free resources out there that I can measure on my own laptop?
      Thanks.
