Check your power supply unit, if that's ok, see if your processor fan is working. most common sudden shut downs are caused by overheating or defective power supply

Just bought a couple of HP 8100 Elite desktops. How can I downgrade them to Windows XP pro ?


You would have to buy yourself a copy of XP pro and do an OS reinstall. The XP pro should come with a COF key. When you do that you will need to install all the drivers for your computer. Check at the manufacturers website and download all the drivers for your PC that work with windows XP. Do this first then do the OS install.

I have windows xp and everytime i try and play a game it pops up abox saying ie must close, i also already installed directx and still nothing. can someone please help me! bettyhann69


I take it this is an online game. I know this is scarey, but you might want to change your search engine from Microsoft's IE to something more stable. I've heard nothing but negative about IE. Try Firefox, look it up and find a free download. I know you'll be pleased.

Created as a new Background Service on the machine
Loaded and Executed as a System Driver File
Deleted as a process from disk
Created as a process on disk

This file I believe it is from GameGuard, Nprotect.

I have a dell windows 2000 pro and a game i play on xp needs me to install a program i tried on my 2000 and no luck my friend has it on 98 and it works im not allowed to copy my moms xp to my hard drive...


You need to go to the www.dell.com/support and look for a down load for you particular PC OS and game. And also to the game site for a possible patch or download to help you. since We don;t have a lot of info on the game, You might just try this one yourself. If you can;t find what you need, come back with more info and I'll give it another try. Good Luck.

IBM IntelliStation Z Pro 6221


Mayeb you need to repair the OS - In which case you will need to have SCSI Controller XP OS floppy driver obtained from IBM website.

Start up the computer booting up from the CD ROM. Then when it comes to "install thrid party devices" - press 'S' and insert the floppy with the SCSI Coontroller on it and follow the on screen instructions.

Windows Xp on Intellistation Z Pro type 6221


A restoration disc is not a conventional Windows OS disc (and vice versa), therefore it often cannot be used as if it were a true Windows disc. The restoration disc includes the OS, but it also includes every driver and other software product that came with your system. If Windows were the only item loaded on your system, then a Windows disc could serve as a restoration disc, but these days, using a typical restoration disc is an all-or-nothing process.

A restoration disc is your ultimate troubleshooting tool. Suppose that your copy of Windows becomes damaged from a virus or key applications become corrupted. Symptoms such as instability, crashing, indecipherable error messages, and impaired performance are extremely hard to diagnose by yourself—even if you have the help of a customer support technician on the telephone. If the most common corrective steps fail, you can always use the restoration disc to recover your PC back to its known-good, factory-fresh state.
