  • 1st Disable ACPI in your BIOS then you have three options, one remove ACPI from the device manager ore reinstall XP with no ACPI support.


The easy and safe way to disable ACPI from the device manager in XP. Just right click on it in the device manager, choose update driver, click I will choose the driver to install, and click on Standard PC. Reboot the PC and it will redetect all your devices.



A easy way to do the Fresh Install with no ACPI. When setup is loading, the blue screen will ask if you have any raid devices, and to press F6. When it does that, press and hold F7, & ACPI will not be installed.

The third way Just press F5 after the first screen asking if you have raid devices to install (will ask at bottom of screen to press F6) keep pressing F5 to the second screen where it will ask to press F2 for recovery console. Keep holding F5 and should get another screen where it will say that it cannot recognize type of pc. There you have two choices: standard pc and other. Select standard and voila no ACPI will be installed.

This should solve your ACPI issues and your devices will be assigned their own IRQ, disabing ACPI in WinXP affects power management etc...but it looks like you have no choice.

i hope good...

How to turn off acpi mode during the installaition


When you first start the XP install, you are in 'text' mode - you know, blue and white screen, no graphics.


When you get to the point where it says at the bottom "Press F6 to install additional storage drivers", just hit F7. Change your system type from ACPI compliant to Standard Computer in the menu that comes up.

Is this message received on an existing installation OR are you now trying to install XP - that "during text mode set up" refers to the install.

If it is already installed Press F8 and select Safe Mode.

If you get in XP there go Start, right click My Computer, click properties, click the hardware tab, click device manager and on the My Computer expand the + sign.


If it says ACPI there, then it already is ACPI compliant.
This actually stands for "Advanced Configuration and Power Interface"

The issue is more than likely a driver, memory or possibly a flat CMOS battery.


hope this helps

Its illegal for anyone to provide serial keys for programs that have retail value set on them
If you are trying to recover a key of an already installed program on your computer there are freeware keyfinders on the internet
http://download.cnet.com/%7Bvalue=http://www.download.com/magical-jelly-bean-keyfinder/3000-18487_4-10079600.html The Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder is a freeware utility that retrieves your Product Key (cd key) used to install windows from your registry.
It has the options to copy the key to clipboard, save it to a text file, or print it for safekeeping.



SP3 is the third and final service pack released for Microsoft Windows XP, and it eliminates many of the security holes that previously affected XP.
While Microsoft recommends that users download SP3 using Windows Update, some users are unable to do so.
However, it's easy to create a Windows XP SP3 installation CD; it requires only that you download the pack from the website and burn it to a CD-R/DVD-R using an ISO burner program.
Download the SP3 installation ISO by visiting the first link listed in the "Resources" section of this article. Save it to your Desktop.
Download ImgBurn and save it to your Desktop.
Double-click the installation executable for ImgBurn and click "Next."
Follow the remaining onscreen prompts and click "Finish" to complete installation of ImgBurn.
Insert a blank CD-R/DVD-R into your DVD drive.
Open ImgBurn by going to "Start," "Programs" and "ImgBurn."
Click "File," then "Browse for a source file."
Navigate to your Desktop and select the SP3 ISO file.
Click "Open."
Click the blue "ISO to CD" button located on the bottom left of ImgBurn.
The program will begin creating the Windows XP SP3 installation CD.
This process may take anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes to complete depending on the speed at which the CD-R/DVD-R is being burned.
Click "OK" once the CD-R/DVD-R has finished burning.
You've successfully created a Windows XP SP3 installation CD.

The process "winlogon.exe" runs in the background.
Winlogon is a part of the Windows Login subsystem, and is necessary for user authorization and Windows activation checks. http://www.neuber.com/taskmanager/proces...

Note: The winlogon.exe file is located in the folder C:\Windows\System32. In other cases, winlogon.exe is a virus, spyware, trojan or worm! Check this with Security Task Manager."
Microsoft designed Windows so many small applications perform their tasks without a user knowing about it.
Normally, this will run smoothly and without flaw, but every once in a while, an issue can come up.
Winlogon.exe is an application that runs on start-up, and its primary function is to monitor the use of other applications.
Winlogon.exe typically only runs for about a minute or two when Windows first boots up, so if for some reason it is still running five or 10 minutes later, it could be infected.
Spyware and other malware would infect this application because it can manipulate other programs in Windows, causing problems.
If this is the case, the file might need to be removed.
if you want to remove this from
Open "My Computer" and select the "C:" drive.
Double click the "Windows" folder, then select "System 32." Navigate through the System 32 folder until you find "Winlogon.exe."
Click the "Winlogon.exe" file and hit "Delete."
Select "Yes" when asked if you're sure you want to remove the program.

Virus? Taskmanager is broken


Doesn't seem like a need to reformat just yet.And, you may not have a virus.

Have you updatd to XP SP3? You can find out by clicking the Windows key +Pause simotaneously in the subsequent popup it should be noted under "System:"

There is a way to repair your installation without reformatting.

Let me know about my above quesions and I'll be happy to get you to a Anti Virus program that scans during Boot Up and also get you started to Repair the OS.
