View Full Version : Home Theatre Media Centre PC

This should be an easy one, I've just forgotten how to do it.
I have setup an old pc as a home theatre media centre.
Just added a wireless card to connect to my home network.
Trying to get around the password barrier.
It's running Vista & the other systems are XP, Vista & Win7.

Go this sorted, well that part anyway.
There is another issue.
On cold boot the HD error comes up.
On reboot it dosent & will then run happily as long as you like.

Its simple, your hard drive is faulty....spin up issues I would guess . Time to replace it.

- what HD error exactly ??????
- a liitle bit too vague

Disk Boot Failure, Insert System Disk & Press Enter.

Consider changing the battery for the BIOS.

Auto login for passworded sytems:
1) Set a password
2) Click Start --> Run --> control userpasswords2

From there, untick the option requiring users to enter a password. It'll prompt you for the password of the user account you want to auto-login as.

Done :D

I could try that but I'm thinking it's HD problem.
