You can enable it after open My Computer --> Rt. Click --> select on Properties --> Go To System Properties --> Then select Performance Option

Here you can check the button and make it

or

Adjust for best apppearance.

I uninstalled a program that had named itself program files, and I think it uninstalled everything on windows XP I don't get a login screen anymore


The only thing i know to be named "Program Files" is a default folder created upon installing the OS. It wouldnt be a program, its a folder where the programs you install are stored by default. if you did delete this folder, you may no longer have a working OS, and might need to reinstall your OS.

Yes expert ntldr missing


It means that your computer is missing a file that windows xp needs to run boot properly or is missing a program that your home edition xp needs. Repairing the OS or windows xp home edition by means of your xp instalation cd will do the job. Just insert your xp installation disk to your cd/dvd rom and select install windows xp home edition. Then select ( repair ), and so on let it finish repairing . Once your system rebooted, let it run without pressing enter or space bar. Just watch and let your computer do the job. This will probably solve your boot problem. But before doing all of this, please check your IDE or SATA cable and also the power cable that is connected to your hard drive. Try to unplug and plug again to ensure a good connection. If this won't work, you can proceed repairing Your windows xp installation or reinstalling a new xp operating system. Have a nice day and i hope i was in any help to you friend.

I've recently had my Dell XP Home Edition computer fixed and everything had been erased and I've been trying to burn a CD and the computer says it cant find a Cd Burner on the compter's system.


Take a look at the face-plate of the optical drive. It should have an authentic 'CD/RW' logo imprinted. If not, then some unscrupulous person could have removed your CD-writer, and installed a CD-reader.

My computer crashed and i need to install windows xp home edition but don;t have the disc what can i do


You should have a system recovery disk. If you don't, then you will need a XP Home disk. As long as you have the XP installation code (usually placed on a sticker on the outside of your comptuer), you can use any XP Home disk. It's the product code that is really needed. Go borrow a CD from a friend and use your software code that is on your computer.

Trying to boot from windows CD and not working


If its the full windows xp cd by booting it from the cd drive it will erase everything and ask if you want to upgrade or advanced install I think. Your correct in choosing the atapi cd-rom as 1st boot device. The cd should be in the drive on startup. IDE is the type of hard disk drive. I'm guessing the FDD stands for floppy disk drive which you might not have that many but you have that many bay windows available.

Put disk in, shut down computer, Start computer and it should give you the xp disk contents. Be aware of data loss though.
