Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

I recently upgraded to Vista after a friend suggested I could ''test'' it by creating a new partition and I would then have the option to choose which program to boot up..hopefully avoiding the loss of accumulated programs/software and all the shiny pretty and EXPENSIVE periphals I loved. Well it worked!! for a few months I had the best of both worlds until one morning it gave me a 000000x0....status code and refused to let me into either XP or Vista...Then the real nightmare began...since this


Answers :

Do an XP install again, but when you get to the part where it asks what partition you want to install it on, choose the options that delete all existing partitions. You will end up with an empty hard drive with 100% free space. Tell it to install there. It will create a new partition, format it and install on it. You will have a nice clean install. Next time you try an experiment, consider doing it on a separate hard drive and unplug the hard drive that has you usual system while you do the experimental installation. Or better, get VirtualBox and install your experimental operating system in it (it provides a virtual computer).

Hi... My 14 y.o. daughter has a Benq lap top (Joy book) which was purchased in Hong Kong 15 months ago. The other night, when she had it plugged in to recharge, we suddenly smelt a "burning smell".
