I want to avoid doing something which will wipe my files as I am into photography and have 3 yrs worth of photos on there. Please help! i have a bcs model a530

HI, Usually the reason that you are getting this message is that you might not yet registered the licence for your windows XP. IF you have a legitimate copy of XP. all you need to do is to register XP using that product key.
Thank you for using Fixya, your recommendation is highly appreciated for the free support.

A better alternative is to shift to firefox(that is my personal opinion)!

Laptop starts and after a while of using a blue error box falshes on the screen and turns off comp I can't even read the blue box its sooo quick!


That is called the BSOD (Blue Screen of Death).
try a chkdsk:


Chkdsk
Take the Windows XP disk. Boot from it, then DO NOT select F2 (automated system recovery) but continue through the procedure until you get to the point where you can choose between installing Windows XP and entering the Recovery Console. Once you get into the Recovery Console, do chkdsk and fix potential errors on your disks! Type Chkdsk C: /R at the prompt.

Or try a XP repair:

XP repair
When you boot with the Win XP install CD-ROM, it loads a minimal operating system, similar to DOS, but compatible with Win XP. At the first screen you select install Win XP (not Recovery Console) and at the next screen it will find that you already have Win XP and offer to attempt a repair. This repair should not touch your Applications or data; it just reinstalls the Windows files. This is great because when it works you don't need to reinstall all your software.


If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Windows xp starts twice and on second boot wont load user settings


Does it just sit at a blue screen? Is there only one user profile on this system? It could be a bad user profile in which case you can try logging on as administrator (if that isn't the user account issue). Try taking it into safe mode or last good known boot and see how far you get. If you recently installed something software or hardware then it could be related to the installation.

My desktop says that my computer did not pass genuine windows val


Hi,
For Windows XP Home
Restart your computer and before the appearance of the boot screen hit F8 to get the booting option list. From the list select Safe Mode in order to start your computer in Safe Mode.
Once the computer has booted in Safe Mode go to Start > Run and type c:Documents and SettingsAll UsersApplication DataWindows Genuine Advantage (where C: is usually the system drive).
Right click the DATA folder and choose Properties. Now go to the security tab and in the Group or user names section click on Users. In the permission for user section make sure you check all the check boxes under the Allow column: Read & Execute, List Folder Contents and Read. Click OK and then restart the computer. Now you should be able to validate your Windows copy.


For Windows XP Professional
In Windows XP professional there is no need to boot in safe mode. Just go to Start > Run and type c:Documents and SettingsAll UsersApplication DataWindows Genuine Advantage. There you will find the Data folder. Right click on it and follow this path: Properties > Security tab > Users > Permission for users section and verify the Allow column for all the check boxes to be selected. If not selected, do it yourself.

Now restart the validation process.

Limited User access will not open files in software program


boot into safe mode on xp. when you start the computer and the bios screen comes up start tapping the F8 key. it should take you to the boot selection screen. press your arrow keys to get to the selection "Windows Safe Mode" and press enter. when xp loads the login screen, there should be an admin account now. use that account to set users access to admin rights.
if you dont want that user to have admin rights but still start software that requires admin rights, try this. right-click on the program. go to run as... and choose administrator.

please let me know if this helped you :)
