Remove the HDD and test. It sounds like your HDD is gone. Can you get to the Boot Menu? Do a System Restore? Is the HDD LED blinking at boot? Will it boot to safe mode? Your data may be in jeopardy.

  • Close down the program entirely that threw the R6205 runtime error message. Press "Ctrl-Alt-Delete" and select "Start Task Manager."
  • Click the "Processes" tab and click on the "Image Name" column header. Scroll down through the list of programs and check to make sure the original program that gave the error message is not on the list. Click on the name of the program if it is in the list and choose "End Process."
  • Close the task manager window and click the Windows "Start" button. Select "Control Panel" and choose "Uninstall a Program" under the Programs section. Select from the list of currently installed programs the program that caused the error and click "Uninstall.
  • Click on the Windows "Start" button, type "cleanmgr" into the Search field and press "Enter." Click on "Files from all users" if it asks and select "Continue." Choose the drive where the program was installed, check the boxes next to "Temporary Internet Files," "Temporary Files," "Recycle Bin," "Downloaded Program Files" and "Setup Log Files." Click "OK" and select "Delete Files."
  • Wait for the program to finish cleaning the files on your hard drive. Re-start the computer. Insert the installation CD for the program you deleted earlier or go to the website of the manufacturer and download the program again. Install the program.
  • Open the software program by double-clicking on its desktop icon or clicking on the name of the program in the "Start" menu under All Programs. Attempt to use the program to make sure the run time error message does not appear again.

What exactly is the question? The start window (with all the charms) can be accessed by moving the cursor to the bottom left corner. If you want to change the startup program, use msconfig.

If the screen on your laptop is jumping, this is typically do to a video graphics driver. Try making sure all your drivers are the most up to date. If you are using Windows, go into your device manager, then where the graphics/video drivers section is, highlight and select to update. In the case of Windows, letting them connect and update is typically the most viable option.

You may find that the username and password were not switched over correctly if you did it by transfer, have you tried your username and password from other computers linked to the internet because they should work from anywhere. If they don't, you could try this.Go to facebook login here:
and just under where you input your password you can click on "forgotten password". This takes you to a page where it says "find my account" where you can enter "Email, Phone, Username or Full Name". Try entering one of these (My email gave the best result for me) and follow through the instructions to reset your password so that you can access your account.

I guess you just re-install windows (any version)? If you re-install Windows XP from scratch you will have 30 days. If you repair windows xp you can;t activate because your internet connection is not working.

most likely this cannot be done, the sockets for the processors have changed twice since then. I don't think you would see a great prefprmace change if you could. You might thim=nk about upgrading to a more powerful core I7 from that generation, but you would need to find out which mother board you have and which processors it supports. Unless you are skilled in laptop repair, I would pass on the upgrade.
