    Have you checked if there's enough space on your harddisk? Is your anti-virus updated?

Hello, I was looking at your problem and I have to say, there are alot of situtations that you can run into that will slow up and hang up a computer. Lets start with the age of the computer, have you taken to a computer shop? If not then lets proceed, when was the last time you took your computer apart and cleaned the dust out of it? The most important component in a computer is located on the mother board it is the processor, if dust is in the fan and heat sink this will cause the processor heat up and slow things down. Dust is the worst thing for a computer, dust is magnetic and when it lands on your equipment it will do all sorts of things. If your not sure what to do, then take it to a computer shop. Before you take to a shop, back up your information, even if you don't take to a shop. Next is if you do a lot of surfing on the net, clean out your internet files, this can be done by going to the control panel, then click on internet options,and delete browsing history. The next is do you have pop ups and different adds poping up? This is from certain sites you visit the server is leased to ad agences that will send things to your computer, the next tip is at the bottom right corner of your computer screen is the task manger, it shows application running in the back ground of windows, if you have alot of icons there this will slow it down. I hope your able to take all this in, and I hope this resolves some of your problems, The only thing left is to go to MY COMPUTER then mouse over your hard drive and right click it, go down to properties, when properties pop up it should show you a round circle like a graph, if there is more than 3/4 full than you are running out of disk space, this will slow it down as well. I Hope all this will help you out, and if there is any other problems please come back and let us know. Thanks

If you have already installed service pack two I would upgrade to SP3 to fix this problem. If you are trying to install SP2 try downloading the "genuine advantage update" (or what ever its called) and then the sp2 update, close all open programs before installing this update to help prevent hangs and crashes. also visit your manufacture website and download the SP2 patch if offered the patch will ensure a smooth install to sp2. good luck

Emachines c2881 unable to upgrade to sp2


Yeah, but you may not care for it.

I, personally abhor the automated feature of Service Packs.
I would rather download Manually, and see what I'm getting.

Takes longer?

Sure.

Cramming junk down my throat that I don't want, don't need, and it is just filling good space I need on my harddrive?

Uh, no.

What to download, there's so much stuff, and I don't know what I'm looking at?
Just download the basics.

What?

Okay, download manually one at a time. When you can't boot your computer, Yep, that one has got to go.

Acer, (Excuse me, I mean eMachines), wants how MUCH?
You told them you could buy a better, used, computer, for that much.

Right?
(I know. I know. Be nice. There's always time to be bad. Lol!)

Lemme see. What could Acer have done for 150 bucks.
Motherboard? Ummm. Harddrive and new genuine copy of Windows XP? Ummmm.

Naa!

They were going to pick your computer apart, to see what the problem was.

You stated " I even tried not using the restore cd but a copy of XP again...."

Meaning a;
1) NEW genuine copy of Windows XP?
2) Genuine copy of Windows XP from another computer?
What are we talkin' about here?

I want to know what the original problem was? Why were you using the Restoration Disk in the first place?

Post back in a Comment.

I have 1gb ddr2 ram 180gb sata hard disk amd dual core proccer i having face problam hang pc startup. slow pc many time & hang use window xp3 please help me.


Goto BIOS of your computer and enable " QUICK BOOT" it will solve your problem. Plus i would personally recommend you to Format your C:\ Drive and reinstall windows (Windows XP SP2 is the best option for fast performance). After you install Windows i would also recommend you to Install any Anti-Virus and Scan your computer for viruses.

Thank you!

Motherboard and cpu


thanks for the details supplied although I believe you're missing some details

1. are you trying to install the whole operating system (windows xp sp2) or only the SP2 for windows xp?

2. if you are trying to install the os (windows xp sp2) is this a clean installation (recommended) or you are trying to upgrade from a previous operating system (9x, nt, 2000)??

10. are you getting a blue screen with this message?? in what part of your installation??: the DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL or PAGE_FAULT_IN_NON PAGE_AREA message is something I'm assuming you're getting on a blue screen before the computer shuts down on you (please confirm if this is accurate)

2. if you answered yes to the previous question what we need is the line at the bottom portion of the blue screen where you see something like 0x000000?? (0x00000......
if possible get this information and post it here. this information is called a stop error (the blue screen is also called a stop error screen or blue screen of dead (BSOD) as is coloquially known) the code will give you/us a better idea of where the problem lies.. but taking an educated guess you may have driver problem creating some type of issues.

in the mean time my suggestions are the following:

a. while you get and post the information required above is, if you're trying to install the service pack 2 on a working xp installation, is to try to install the SP2 by only having the basic peripherials plugged into your system. (keyboard, mouse and obviously your monitor) and reattempt the sp2 installation.

b. if you're trying to install the operating system (either clean install or not) make sure your windows xp sp2 copy is a good copy (hopefully will be a valid copy of the os) if not you can always run into problems now or at a later time.

c. if you're trying to install the os and want to make sure your system/hardware configuration is appropiate for the installation this are your options:

1. check the HCL online (if you have a previous installation you are trying to upgrade to xp)
http://winqual.microsoft.com/HCL/Default.aspx?m=x
2. if you have a previous windows installation you can also use the upgrade tool to confirm if you have what you need to put windows xp on your system.
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;q307726
2. if you have don't have an internet connection you can use the windows xp cd that you have to confirm whether you have what it's required in terms of hardware:
Pop the cd into your CD drive. Close the screen if auto run launches and open Run from the Start Menu. Type in D:winnt32.exe /checkupgradeonly, substituting the drive letter of your CD-ROM for D if it’s different. This will launch the Microsoft Windows Upgrade Advisor that will identify any hardware and software upgrade incompatibilities.

Sata


IF you put Vista it will have the SATA drivers you need.
Not sure what you mean about the XP disk.
You can use any XP CD to slipstream. While the ideal CD to use would be XP SP2, you always slipstream in the SP2 on top of the base XP CD.
I would advise against the SP3 as it still has issues. And SP3 still doesn't have any SATA drivers.
Once you create a slipstream XP CD, even if it is the baseline XP without any SP on it, you can always add them through Windows Update.

Windows XP on Acer Aspire M1610


Hi Watashifr,

First you will need to boot up. When you do this you need to go into bios and then go to boot and disable the hard drive floppy and any other drivers. You must make sure you keep the cd driver as 'able', save setting and exit out of bios. This will let you reboot. After it`s done, the partition in the computer will reboot the computer. Make sure to go back into bios and able the hard drive, floppy etc...
I had the same problem, and solved it this way.

Many issues few solutions


Sounds like you have a real mess there that you can lose a lot of time trying to solve. I'd suggest saving all your files to another drive, and then reinstall the OS and only allow the system to update through the Windows update manager/web site, which should be able to match up the right update files. Do all this patching of the OS without installing any other hardware devices to keep it clear where things go wrong. Once the OS is patched completely, install new hardware and patch it separately watching for the tell-tale incompatibilities with XP/MCE2005. Especially watch for legacy devices that might not have modern drivers.

Hope this helps - good luck...
