If you only have 256MB ram then you will run into problems as XP needs at least 512MB if not more as a preload buffer
I have overcome this by having 2 XP disks available when cannot find file on 1 I put in the other exchanging as needed
Have done this on 3 computers
1 was only a p266 with 256 ram and 40 gb hard drive
Give it a try

My pc freezes :(


Hi redjeans21,
There can be a verity of reasons that can cause you to loose display. I'll list some suggestions you can try that may fix this issue. After each suggestion try the game that freezes the system more often than the others. (If you have never cleaned the inside of your system please do so). Use canned air & blow out the guts of the motherboard & power supply).
First, please make sure your antivirus software is up to date & run a full system scan. If you need a virus scanner you can download & install AVG for free at this link. http://free.avg.com/ww.download-avg-anti-virus-free-edition Once you are sure your system is clean let’s run a test on your system memory. Click on the link below to download memtest86 software. http://memtest.org/
Scroll down the page until you see three monitor snap shots. Download either. (Suggest the floppy software which is the easiest to use). For bootable floppy disk test software download, (Download - Pre-Compiled package for Floppy (DOS - Win). To create bootable CD test software, (Download - Pre-Compiled Bootable ISO (.zip). Boot your system with either disk, floppy or CD & test your memory. You'll know if there is a problem & you'll know what you need to do. (Let’s hope its ok).
The integrated VGA video card is not the greatest for playing games. The reason it is not is because the onboard video uses your system memory to function. Part of your 512MB of system memory goes to your video card & windows XP needs all of the 512MB. It's suggested that an XP system run with 1GB. 512MB is still ok. System freezes are more likely caused by software, including registry errors. Download & run this free registry cleaner. http://www.pctuneuptips.com/recommends/clean/?gclid=CL2RiIrTmpICFSFMGgodODIPzg
Restart your system after the cleaner has finished. Next try running windows check disk. Right click once on My Computer & slide to & left click Open. Right click on C: & slide to & left click Properties.
Left click the Tools tab & than click, Check Now... for Error-checking. Your system will restart & run check disk. Lastly, buy an AGP graphics card & disable the onboard video. The MSI KM4M-L motherboard can only run an AGP card that supports 1.5 volts. This link is a 1.5v AGP card:
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4097741&CatId=318
The card above comes with a 2 year warranty.
More AGP's: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=2145957&CatId=318

If nothing above has helped or fixed the freezing issue, I would do a fresh install of windows, including a format of the hard disk drive.

Good luck redjeans21!

AUDIO DRIVERS


If your drivers are from trusted source just click ok continue when the windows signing for drivers pop up window appear.

Now if you click ok and then the system fails to load and then give you a blue error screen, its caused by either
  1. The hardware or its drivers cause conkflict to the system, because your drivers are not from a source you can trust and they are not in compliance with windows OS features and as a result can not run in a windows OS. So get a fresh copy of the drivers from a trusted source preferably the product manufacturer
  2. The hardware itself is faulty and on installing to XP it causes a conflict in which case you can try the Sound card on a different PC and see if it runs, otherwise you need to replace it.
  3. (Assuming XP has finished loading the OS) Sometimes XP fails to unistall the previous drivers, if this is that case goto the device manager (windows icon >right click > properties >hardware > device manager) select ypur current sound card unistall the driver that is there and then restart your machine and load the new drivers again

Continuous restarting with winxp


On computers that contain Windows 98 and Windows XP: ? Windows 98 must be installed on a basic disk on a partition formatted with FAT or FAT32. If Windows 98 or Windows Me is not installed on the system partition, which is almost always the first partition on the disk, the system partition must also be formatted with FAT or FAT32. ? Compressed DriveSpace or DoubleSpace volumes won't be available while you are running Windows XP. It is not necessary to uncompress DriveSpace or DoubleSpace volumes that you will access only with Windows 98. ? Windows XP must be installed last. Otherwise important files needed for starting Windows XP could be overwritten
