16 minutes from welcome screen to destop icon loading on Windows xp with sp3.Just started happening


1) How long have you have the SP/3 update? Caused a LOT of problems there for a while.
May still be doing it.

I'll just stick with Service Pack II.
(Microsoft has had a backdoor since Windows NT anyway.
Plus my anti-malware programs, and a virtual desktop; does just fine)

2) The two leading causes of desktop computer failure is;
A) Computer is dirty inside
B) Power Supply is bad.

How about we start with looking inside the computer?
Plus, do you know about Anti-Static Procedures?
And, what is the model name, and model number of that Dell?

Please post back in a Comment.

Tip

What Does It Mean When Support for My Operating System Ends?


Microsoft Support for Windows Vista (with no service packs installed) ended on April 13, 2010, while support for Windows XP (without Service Pack 3 installed) ended on July 13, 2010. Windows 2000 support ended on July 13, 2010 as well.
There is no Service Pack 3 for the 64-bit version of Windows XP. If you're running the 64-bit version of Windows XP with SP2, you have the latest service pack and will continue to be eligible for support and receive updates until April 8, 2014.
If you are still running a version of Windows where support has ended, it means that version of Windows will no longer receive any updates from the Windows Update or Microsoft Update site. These updates are generally provided for security reasons to help protect the PC from harmful viruses, spyware, malware, and other malicious software. Windows Update also provides new drivers for your hardware that can improve the reliability of Windows.
Hackers love to take a security vulnerability in Windows and exploit it to their advantage. So, if a vulnerability is found in Windows XP or Windows Vista and you are not running the latest service pack, you will not be protected and will be at risk.

How Can I Tell What Service Pack is Installed?
Follow these steps to discover what Service Pack is installed:
1) Click on the Start Button
2) Right-click on either My Computer or Computer (depending on your Windows version)
3) Click on Properties
On this window, it should tell you which version of Windows along with which service pack is installed). It should also tell you whether you are running a 32 bit or 64 bit version of Windows.

Where can I download the latest Service Pack for Windows?
For Windows XP, click on the following link to download Service Pack 3

I lost my restore and internet


Microsoft issued Service Pack 2 and Service Pack 3 for XP to patch (and "improve") the OS. The list of patches and downloads for XP are here:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/resultsForProduct.aspx?displaylang=en&ProductID=4c937a02-bae0-4317-a1a9-0c56cd979d05

You needed to install the service packs to continue accessing Microsoft's updates for your computer. Microsoft assumes you don't want to lose this data. You could get rid of the problem by reinstalling the entire OS from your current disc (if you have a full version, if you have an update version of XP you'll need the OS disc for Win95, Win98, WinMe or Win2K). Start with formatting the hard disc. However, you will lose the ability to contact MS for updates with Windows Update until you manually download and install the Service Packs (including SP3).

Alternatively you can build a new recovery disc for your current XP version, if you take the IT versions of the service packs. This takes several steps - first you need to copy all the files from the CD to a hard disc. Then you need to slipstream in the service packs. Then get the boot image files from the CD and create a new .iso with all of the files. For SP2, http://www.winsupersite.com/showcase/windowsxp_sp2_slipstream.asp has more information on the details.

If you want to add the SP3, you need to add the following set of steps:
http://www.winsupersite.com/showcase/xpsp3_slipstream.asp

I hope you can get your machine to function.

Pro tools m-powered problem


You may need to check to see which "service pack" you are currently on.

See below requirements:

System Software — Windows XP & Vista
  • Windows Vista Business or Ultimate Edition
    • 32-bit OS Installation Only
  • Windows XP Professional or Home Edition
    • With Windows XP Service Pack 2 or Service Pack 3

  • Not Supported:
    • Windows Vista 64-bit (any version)
    • Windows XP Professional x64 Edition
    • Windows XP Media Center Edition
    • Windows 98, Me, 2000, NT, 95, 3.1, DOS

  • Not Tested:
    • Windows Vista Home and Home Premium Edition
    • Although Windows Vista Home and Home Premium Edition have not been tested or qualified by Digidesign, there are currently no known issues with Vista Home and Home Premium 32-bit operating systems and Pro Tools M-Powered 7.4 compared to the supported Windows Vista Business or Ultimate Edition operating systems.

Windows Vista SP1
There are currently no known issues with Service Pack 1 for Windows Vista based on our initial limited testing and customer feedback. Although full qualification with all Digidesign products has not been completed, we do not recommend against updating to SP1, given the number of important overall system fixes in SP1. We do recommend that you backup your system and create a restore point before updating to SP1, should you encounter any problems after installing the update.

I need to up grade my windows 2000 to windows xp


First you need to make sure that your computer meets the following specifications:
- 300 MHz (or higher processor)
- Intel Pentium/Celeron or AMD K6/Athlon/Duron compatible processor.
- 128 MB of RAM (or higher)
- 1.5 Gigabytes of available hard disk space
- Super VGA (800 x 600) or higher resolution video adapter and monitor.

I am sure that your computer likely meets all of these requirements, but I posted them to save you the grief if by chance it does not meet one of the above!

In a moment I will post a link to a website where you can purchase an upgrade to Microsoft Windows XP home edition (Service Pack 2).

Once you have the software, start up windows 2000 and place the disk into the CDROM drive. You should be given an option to upgrade to XP. (make sure you start the disk while you are on the Windows 2000 desktop with all programs closed). After XP is installed if your computer does not have an Antivirus program installed, I strongly recommend either installing Norton Antivirus or AVG. AVG is free and can be downloaded from http://www.avg.com/. Then make sure that your windows firewall is turned on. (It should be automatically) After this go to Microsoft.com and download service pack 3 and any additional updates needed.

The upgrade version of Windows XP home with service pack 2 can be purchased from newegg.com by clicking on this link: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16837116194.

I hope that this information has been helpful to you. Please let me know if you have any other questions!

May 12th, 2008: Some customers reported problems installing Studio Plus version 11 UPGRADE (11.0) or Studio version 11 Standard (11.0) on systems with Windows XP Service Pack 3 was already installed (a message asking for Windows XP Service Pack 2 is displayed).

I have windows xp and i attached usb2.0 with it but my pc not detecting my usb 2.0 but when i insert the usb in my laptop the green light is on of usb.what shoud i do


Hello there.

For Windows XP, support for USB2.0 is provided in the Windows XP Service Pack 2.

You most likely do not have this installed, to check do the following: right click "My computer" on the desktop, left click "Properties", Notice underneath where it says "System:"
It should say Microsoft Windows XP, Service Pack 2.

If yours does not, then you need to update to Service Pack 2 as soon as possible, as this includes many security fixes to keep you safe online.

Please click here to upgrade to service pack 2.
