ok, the nerves are almost up to doing this, like i mentioned earlier, i did a full back-up using the XP disc, just wondering, i can pick and choose what stuff i want from the back-up, right? and would i use the xp disc to do that, or is there another way to get what i want from the back up. thanks
im no pro. but im fairly sure u it will be file folders u can drag and drop.
ok, how about my wireless modem, what would i need to do for that? anything, nothing? thanks
external modem? my xp pro always finds the internet automatically. i still check the lan settings tho.
my cd drive won't read my windows disk, i tried running the windows online trouble shooter and it says it can't read the disk, i put in a different disk and it reads that so i know my cd drive is ok. my external dvd drive can read the installaiton disk, can i use that, or when i press start will the drivers be erased making the external drive not work?
uhm, im assuming u reformatted the disk or wiped it correct? now your trying to install windows again? u may need to set boot settings to read cd-drive first.
or u talking about your backup cd...
the external drive should be automatically recognized by windows once u plug it in. new hardware icon or look in your computer setting for it and open to view files.
confused cuz u mentioned installation disk with your external drive. i like driver max to backup all my drivers. then just xfer the file to a flashdrive- after reinstall run drivermax again and "install saved drivers" (i think is the command. u can run the program from the jumpdrive to get it going quickly.
works easy to get my vid cards going again. Frustrating when i have to go to their website and dl drivers. meh, just thought id pass on that info to help anyway i can.
