It would not initiate the boot sequence, or for that matter shut down, all the while beeping continuously (similiar to buffering up too many keystrokes). I suspect that the hard drive on your machine is overdue for replacement if it is the original one and the CD rom drive too. thanks, Steve Manojcmm 12 April 2013 07:19:34 cheange the Ram and Os CD..................Manoj chennai(Cyyber world) Manojcmm 12 April 2013 07:20:05 cheange the Ram and Os CD..................Manoj chennai(Cyyber world) Can't find your

It copies so many files but then randomly stops stating that it can't copy a specific file, and asks me to try again or skip. Perhaps it was wrong.
don't skip ..just eject the present Cd ..put the next Windows xp Cd .... the windows10 install worked fine but 1st I do not have a license and 2nd the devices for sound, usb wintv und usb wireless were not recognised and slimdrivers did not I removed it, moved the other module to the first memory slot, and I'm now a happy user of Windows 2003 on my brand new Pentium D system.

I cannot format the pendrive. have a peek at these guys I have no idea what the deal is but I have had this same problem on about 150 machines ranging from 1-3 years old and having LG drives. >-----Original Message----- >Installing Jun 15, 2016 #16 bazz2004 TS Evangelist Posts: 1,214 +200 It's also important to take stock of your hardware.

How to solve this? I had this problem about five years ago. Eventually I happened upon the following line in the setupapi.log file. #-175 SPFILENOTIFY_COPYERROR: Source = "\\MyNetworkShare\hp_cp3525x\hp color laserje\drivers\i386(32 bit - 2000_xp_s2003_vista)\pcl6\hpcp3525.CF_", Target = "C:\WINDOWS\System32\spool\DRIVERS\W32X86\hewlett_packardhp_cof94c\hpcp3525.CFG", Flags = 0x00000000, Error = 0x0000001e. check over here A big thanks to Microsoft for their printer management model.
Any help with this would be appreciated. Perhaps it was wrong. There is a problem though!
Created a copy of the CD and used it without a problem.

Unfortunately, I could not find any >> information through the "Knowledge Base" which i cant >> even really consider it that anymore so this is my last >> resort. The CD drive became unreliable at reading disks and was replaced. So this rules out any problem with:- The CD The CD RW The HDD This leaves My motherboard or my IDE cable? If this fails then as mentioned above time for new RAM.
It installed XP on first attempt, no problems at all. Solutions? Before, I installed Xp from my CD many times without problems. solution cd dvd rom wont spin and read .
Already have an account? I'm assuming you already know with XP you have to set your BIOS to "run HDDs as IDE" or install SATA pre-drivers . (The Intel floppy disc thingy).
