No Paul, they don't run windows, they run a form of Linux for the Chrome OS.

I know what they run.. And are so oooo much more reliable. And stable. I just wondered if diagbox could be run on it...

My lexia laptop hard drive is kaput.. I've got win xp home and key but isn't bootable.. I've. Got win xp pro without a key but the install stops with a blue screen and critic error.. So I'm going round and round on something that I really shouldn't be going round and round with. It drives me mad.. I've little patience for IT software repairs.

If your hardware is failing / has failed, then it won't matter Paul. BSOD is generally a hardware or driver failure, so if your HD is knackered, it will need replacing. Unfortunately, as XP is no longer supported, nor is Windows 7, there won't be any updates now to fix any driver issues unless you already have recent versions stored elsewhere. Lexia won't run on Linux. :(

The laptop is a netbook for Windows xp...

I can't even download a damm iso to try that incase it's disc damage.

I also need to put db cleaner trough the other laptop to try and install diagbox again with WiFi off.. But can't find that anywhere either despite people saying they have found it on the net..

I hate WINDOZE IT.. 🤣🤣

Paul,

Let me have a rummage through my computer boxes as I'm sure I have DB cleaner and windows 7 pro with key.

If you want it I can post it down to you.
