Question about Compaq Presario R3000 Notebook
Hi, I have recently been having problems with my pc laptop. I recently downloaded some windows xp series 2 to update my computer which is about 5yrs. old. The operating system is windows xp series 1. While configuring windows xp series 2 I noticed that the configurations took a very long time. Once the operating sytem installation was complete I restarted my computer. Unfortunately my start menu had dissapeared. I can access certain programs from the desktop but I cannot run them. The system says not responding. I have tried to go to system restor. An error box appears on my desktop telling me that a program terminated uncorrectly.
It appears that Service Pack 2 did not completely install. Try to boot into safe mode (F8 at startup). If you can, go to control panel, then add/remove programs. Scroll all the way down, select Windows XP Service Pack 2 and click "remove".
After it's removed, you will need to reboot, but the system should come up normally after that.
Hope this helps - please remember to rate :)
