If you have lost sound on the PC there could be several reasons:
1. if you use speakers the speakers could have either become unplugged, the souns could be turned down or muted.
2. The sound card could have gone bad.
3. You could have downloaded a Microsoft update that corrupted your sound.

Do the following:
1. Check you speaker cables to make sure they are plugged in correclty if you use speakers
2. Check the sound icon by your system clock in the toolbar at the bottom of the screen. If it has a red X then this is where the issue is, if not then click it and make sure it is 'Off' mute.
3. Click start right click 'My computer' and go to device manager on theproperties tab. Make sure the driver for your speakers does not show a yellow or red indicator.

If you still have an issue then go to: startr, accessories, system tools, system restore and restore the pc to a checkpoint before the date you lost your speakers/sound.

Lost SP3 windows xp home edition version 2002 how do i get it back or do i need to I have automatic updates turned on when I look at programs beside it ,there no file size? also how do I fix error...


If you mean no file size showing up in "Add / Remove Programs"
thats because it's integrated / uninstallable but registered.

Error: 0x80070005, is that when you access "Microsoft Update"?

As for repairing SP3 Read more here:

and you probably have to go for option:
"Manually installing SP3 using the Microsoft Download Center or a CD"
Good Luck

System logging off as soon as i starts it. Please see details..


Looks like you've tried a lot. Try this stuff.

1) Try F11 instead.
2) Dunno. Corruption?
3) chkdsk /f
4) Microsoft EULAs are much less crackable than their software, according to BitTorrent.

Can I install windows xp home edition to another computer


No.
OEM CDs are locked to the computer.
If you do install XP, it will ask for activation and you cannot activate it because an OEM licence is only for the computer it was sold with.
