Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition

My system is hanging frequently

I have a system with XP Service pack 2. It is hanging very frequently. The system has been formatted for about 4 to 5 times now and I still have the same problem. I thought it could be a problem of the RAM. I have got 2 RAM's in my system, 512 & 1GB and I tried running my system only on 512 and later only on 1 GB still the problem persist. I checked the mother board and none of the components on motherboard is getting heated. Checked the SMD and found it to be fine. Removed the complete motherboard from the cabinet and tried installing and the installation went fine, but after a few hours it again got hanged. I am not able to resolve the issue. SMPS is also working fine, what should I check next.

    I have an assembled PC. it is not a branded machine. The trouble started a month back and I would say it started all of a sudden. I have changed nothing and still getting that irritating problem

    When did this trouble begin? What changed before it all started? And what is the brand of your computer and motherboard?

Use the Microsoft-supplied Performance Monitor log to pinpoint where the trouble is occurring. If that doesn't lead you to the solution, please supply further details:

  • Brand of motherboard, memory, chip, etc.
  • Exact error message or behavior. Do you get a blue screen? Does the CPU usage top out? What exactly do you mean by "hang"?
  • Does the problem occur in Safe Mode? You will not be able to use many of your devices and peripherals in Safe Mode, but at least this can help rule out trouble with the basics: motherboard, memory, etc.

Install XP, it hangs up with the message at the bottom ''Searching for previous versions of Microsoft Windows'' please help


Windows installer always formats the disk after checking the previous installation. There are two ways to overcome this problem. One, if windows still boots, then insert the installation disk in the drive and let it Auto Run, and ask you whether you want to upgrade the OS or install new. If you upgrade then the formatting will not take place as windows knows that there is already a window on the disk. But should you want a new installation then it will do all the checking and may hang again. So, upgrade. Two, dl you have a DOS bootup disk. If yes then boot up with DOS boot up disk and format the HDD with it. once it had formatted and windows checks up, let it. It will not hang now. as there in a very clean HDD.

Need to upgrade from Windows ME to Windows XP or Viesta


Yes you can upgrade to windows xp service pack 2/3 without problem. I recommend you update the bios (rompaq) from the revision on the compaq site, and install at least a second
SDRAM 256mb memory module in it first or it will run slow and hang up frequently. I've been running mine on XP for years, still using it now;) (with 384 memory-one 128chip and one 256 chip)

Uninstall xp


You can remove service pack 2 from within add/remove programmes, you will not lose any documents, but you will lose the udated security patches which is not recommended. If you mean you wish to remove XP SP completely, obviously the files and everything you have installed on c drive will be deleted as you can only save docs etc within an operating system, as c: is just a partition on your hard drive the files reside within the operating system. If you are upgrading to another operating system my advice would be to use a dual boot system and install the other operating system on a seperate partition of your drive, but you would have to have a fair knowledge of pc operating system installation processes.
