Do you have a Windows XP disk?  If so, insert that to complete the installation.  If that doesn't work, try using this link to download SP3.

How can I download the update software


Hi there,

Yes, there is now a Service Pack 3 available.

Click on your START menu, and you should see a "Windows Update" icon (within the Start Menu).

Click the Windows Update icon and this will open a new browser, taking you to the Microsoft Update website.

From there, you will be able to follow the instructions and the site will search your pc for the appropriate updates. Click on the 'recommended' updates, which should install SP3 for you.

Good luck...

Trying to install a new xp install on an HP Pavilion a1320n with a new 1.5 TB drive. XP only seems to recognize it as a 131062 MB drive. Is this an XP problem or a problem with the BIOS or...


Theoreticaly win xp will support 4Tb hard driver (hdd), but, your motherboard need to support this size as well, in your case, in both accoutns you are within limits.

This was theory, now practicality, LBA (Logical Block Address) was originally created as 24bit for ATA/PATA?ATAPI devices, calculated size supported therefore is 137.4GB.

In case of your computer, this motherboard should support 48bit formating and therefore size of 144.000.000GB (144.000TB).

I would suggest following actions, go to this site:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?os=228&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&sw_lang=&product=1818050#N1388

Download newwest BIOS, unfold it to the disk and update BIOS, then use in installation windows xp sp2 or above, windows xp alone do not format properly harddrivers that size.

Another causative agent is how windows create partition and format under NTFS/NTFS5 system. It creats enormous size MBR and reserved "patch" for system files, in your case this is main "loss" of the space.

You can actually "reclaim" heaps of this spce by partitioning, but this crates another problems and you need to investiate which method will be best in your particular case.

Xp service pack 3 key


Hi,

There is no "key" for SP3, its just an update.

Just click on the start menu and perform a Windows/Microsoft Update to install SP3 and then perform another update to update SP3.

If you have tried another monitor and result is the same, then it's a faulty graphics card.
If graphics card is sharing system memory, then you might need to replace ram to get it work again.

you dont mention the drivers you need, you dont get drivers for software as you say, but if you mean the motherboard drivers, you will have to find out the maker of your board then search the relevant makers web site for drivers. The only problem you may come across is that the bios may have a different version for Vista than that of what you need for XP so there may be some problems stting up the motherboard drivers.
