How to speed up windows xp!

Everyone has always asked me how'd you get your computer to boot up so quick? well here it is...

After the initial or fresh install of windows xp and all programs your computer may start to slow down. May it be slow on boot up or slow loading a program, there is a small procedure to speed your computer up. You see windows installs a program and usually it is automatically setup to open or run when you turn on your computer they usually end up in the task bar beside the clock. Here is the method to turning all those unwanted programs off and prevent them from open on your future start ups.

-->click start
-->click Run...
-->type msconfig in the box
-->find the tab that says start up and click
-->uncheck all the boxes
-->click apply

and you're done!

how to install windows xp


To install Windows XP :

Required items
1: Windows XP CD ( SP 1/2/3 )/ Windows XP setup in a USB drive ( please ensure that you have made the USB bootable or it won't be detected )
2: CD Rom Drive ( if you want to install by CD )
3: USB Drive ( if you want to install by USB )


For a fresh install , follow the following steps accordingly :

1: Insert the CD into the Drive and restart the PC.
2: Note that your boot settings in the bios settings are correct (i.e 1st Boot priority CD drive if you are installing with CD and 1st boot priority USB if you are installing with Pendrive ).

3: Follow the steps shown on the screen which will throw a couple of options and settings.

4: Click on ' Install a fresh copy of Windows ' when asked for.
5: Select the drive in which you want to install it , it will be formatted and new windows installation would take place in that same drive.
6: Set your date and time region , enter the serial key when asked for.
7: The whole process should take around 45 minutes.

You are done installing it..Congrats!

Kindly note that installing any version of Windows by USB is always quicker than installing by CD/DVD.

it is not starting up


Hi,

Good day. I suggest for you to reinstall windows and use the repair options. Usually software encounter errors or some files might get corrupted causing your computer not to boot up properly. The repair option in Windows XP will help you to fix those issue. here are the steps to follow:

1. Rule out hardware issues. Windows Repair will only fix software problems. Hardware issues can also cause boot problems (i.e. bad hard drive, memory, CPU, or power supply).

2. Backup. It's always a good idea to backup your important data before making changes to Windows XP. Relax, if you follow these instructions your data will be perfectly safe.

3. Boot from your Windows XP CD. Insert the Windows XP CD into your computer's CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive, and then restart your computer. When the "Press any key to boot from CD" message appears on the screen, press a key to start your computer from the Windows XP CD.

4. A blue screen will appear and begin loading Windows XP Setup from the CD.

5. When completed loading files, you will be presented with the following "Windows Setup" screen, and your first option. Select "To set up Windows XP now, press ENTER". DO NOT select Recovery Console.

6. Then press F8 to continue

7. Next, Windows Setup will find existing Windows XP installations. You will be asked to repair an existing XP installation, or install a fresh copy of Windows XP.

8. Then just choose repair option to repair your Windows Xp

9 Then it should work. If iin any case that will not solve the issue, you might try to install fresh copy on Windows Xp


Hope this information will help you resolve your issue. Have a great day.

laptop powers on, but windows doesnt load


Boot PC from Windows XP installation CD you will be ask to instal fresh copy or repair existing installation - go for "fresh copy" software will analyze you PC and try to find your previous copy of Win XP you will be ask again to repair copy of your existing Windows Xp now go for "Repair" option so installation software restore all Windows files and will keep all your settings*.
This solution is only temporary because IE 7 and 8 will no longer work after restoring - backup all your data and instal fresh copy of Win XP after all and always keep Your Backup up to date!!
