WinXP service pack 2 (&3) messing up graphic card for Acer Aspire


Reinstall XP, fully update it, download the installers for the latest drivers from  
http://support.acer.com/us/en/drivers_download.aspx
 uninstall the ones you have, reboot and install the new ones. The absolute next thing you must do is to install the antivirus. 
When all that is done configure your pc starting with the display.

Cant finish loading win xp


is this a new computer (built for vista)? If so, then the most likely culprit is the driver set in XP cannot handle your hardware. so it locks when it gets to that point. Or it could be a read/write error. First try installing again, but delete all existing partitions and make new one, and when you format, do not use quick format. If that doesn't do it, you will most likely need to build a custom windows install cd to make it work. You can slip stream Service Pack 3 in, and that helps. you can also slipstream drivers for your PC into the disc so that the will be available at install time. Check out nLite, at the link below, really good package for doing this.

Lost log in password for travelmate 3230


if winxp home
1. restart
2. press f8 to go into advance start up options
3. select "safe mode", then press enter
4. log on as the administrator (you better remember the password for this one if any... generic installations may not have a password for this account)
5. try to change the password (I'm not sure if you can but you can try) if your system has the ntfs file system you may have to create an administrator priviledged user and have that user taking ownership of the files you can't access as an administrator... ... if you have fat32 file system. you can just go right into your files..)

if winxp pro
1. you can just at the log on screen press ctlr+alt+del combination twice
2. type "Administrator" (and password if provided at time of windows installation)
3. start > right click on my computer> manage computer > users and groups > look for user name (your own) and right click>all tasks>set password (this will reset allow you to reset the password.)
4. read the desclaimer first then go for it.

Computer won't load Windows


Hello,
1. What the motherboard you had been using
2. Whats the HDD

Check that your motherboard supports the higher HDD
Upto 80GB HDD Windows can load the XP with servicepack 1
But after 80GB HDD supports the WIN XP with service pack 2 CD only.  Try to install with the winxp having above sp1.

Let me know if your problem is solved and rate me as FIXYA!

Emachine trouble


There are several causes that are common.
The first,especially with e-machines, is they do not like service pack 2 updates.
If you have a standard winxp cd you can boot from that and choose repair console once the cd starts to load win xp files.

First, I would attempt to load windows by as it boots, press F8 to go into options, select first LAST KNOWN GOOD Configuration

If that doesn't work then select SAFE MODE.
If you can get in in the SAFE MODE, select ADMINISTRATOR
no password and try and undo changes that were made.
