\015 I allready asked can i reboot my amd athlon xp 1700 without reboot disc software to its origanal factory settings? but really didint get any positive answer, it is a rather old computer and i am not much of a computer wizard!!! i really only want the computer as a media player now for my room, i do not have any software cds(lost them) and was just wondering if there is a way it can be done without reboot disc.i just want a clean harddrive and get it back to it origanal settings!! thanks for your time................\015

Answers :

What os are you using? if you have the tag still attached, download and run belarc advisor (from cnet or do a simple search). you can then install and run the program, write down the serial number for the os (xp, mem, 2000, etc). if the serial number has an oem in it, it means it needs to be re-installed using an oem cd. (any oem cd can be used, so long as you use the key provide on your windows coa tag). if it came with original retail discs, any retail disc will re-install the os using your same coa.
\015\012if the pc is already able to be usable as is, and just needs to have programs and other files removed, re-installing windows is not needed.
\015\012just go to start, settings, control panel, add/remove programs and remove any that you don't need. you can then delete any files and folders for things you have saved to the computer and longer want to keep. otherwise you can just save them to cd/dvds for later use.

\015\012there are two other options you may also want to consider.
\015\012first, once you determine the type of windows that you have, and saved the product key from the belarc advisor (print it if you can so as to have it handy), you can go to ebay and purchase a cd without a coa (certificate of authenticity) for a few dollars, (usually under $5), or you can switch to a linux os (free open source software os such as ubuntu) and install it, unfortunately i don't know if they have a media plaing program available that operates under linux systems.

- what do u understand by "reboot disk " ?
- and by "factory settings" ?! software configuration ?

if u have no CD's (the OS and it;s configurations installed by the asambeler of u;re system, the so called recovery disk) u;'ll have to do a fresh OS install and use the computer as any other computer ! If u want to use it as a media player, considering that is an older system, i recomand a linux OS, becouse they are faster and u;ll need the free procesor power for some video playing...

I am trying to burn a DVD that is 1 hour and 49 minutes long and it will not burn correctly. On a DVD-RW it only recorded just a small amount at the beginning and also had music in the background.
