To get into the Windows 2000 / XP Safe mode, as the computer is booting press and hold your "F8 Key" which should bring up the "Windows Advanced Options Menu" as shown below. Use your arrow keys to move to "Safe Mode" and press your Enter key.
Note: With some computers if you press and hold a key as the computer is booting you will get a stuck key message. If this occurs, instead of pressing and holding the "F8 key", tap the "F8 key" continuously until you get the startup menu.
Trouble Getting into Windows 2000 or Windows XP Safe mode - If after several attempts you are unable to get into Windows 2000 or Windows XP Safe Mode as the computer is booting into Windows, turn off your computer. When the computer is turned on the next time Windows should notice that the computer did not successfully boot and give you the Safe Mode screen.

I would suggest that you run only one stick of Ram at a time to determine if they are the problem.. Also these CPU's had heat problems that damaged the cpu. This also causes freezing. I would consider resetting the CPU and the heat sink, and case fans are clean and working.

Compaq presario 2200 is very slow


If you open up Windows Explorer, right-click on 'My Computer' if you are running XP or 'Computer' if you are running Vista and select Properties from the context menu, you will be presented with a window that displays information about the installed processor and clock speed as well as the amount of memory installed in the computer.

Again in Windows Explorer, if you right-click on Local Disk (C:) and select Properties, you will be presented with a window that give you information about the amount of used space, free space and total space on the hard disk.

Can I move hard drive from 1 PC(xp home) to xp pro/vista


you should be able to install as many drives as your computer has seta ports. The problem i having is why did your old computer stop working, Or died? If it had anything to do with a virus i would not recommend retrieving this information without a serious anti-virus program. Also keep in mind that you will not be able to boot off the old C:\ drive but you should still be able to access all of its contents. Hope this answers any of your questions but am here for more advice if you need some.

Thanks for using fixya and please don't forget to rate your responses

HELP WITH LAGGING BIOSTAR M7VIG PRO FRESH XP PRO


I would check for an exclamation point in device manager to make sure you dont have some driver issues, then if $$ allows, add more ram ddr 266 1gb in each slot. Your integrated graphics is using some of what little ram you do have, so, use that agp slot and fill it w/ @ least a 128 or 256MB vid card ati and nvidia cards with that amount of ram are fairly inexpensive now. Maybe also try superantispyware and avast free version if you have not checked for these possible problems already...
