SP3 nightmare install

I have tried everything for months to install SP3. It cannot be done by me. SP37394 is a joke. I try to install and it says my system does not have the minimum requirements installed. I could go on and on but what I need is a program or simple step by step process to install SP3 . By simple I mean something short of line after line of meaningless computer speak.

SP3 nightmare install - s.gif
On March 6, 2008 Microsoft released Service Pack 3 (SP3) for Windows XP. Service Pack 3 contains all of the important Windows updates from previous service packs as well as additional updates that were released after Service Pack 2. To install Windows XP Service Pack 3 from the Internet on a home desktop computer use the Windows Update feature. CAUTION: If you have an HP Pavilion, HP Media Center or Compaq Presario desktop computer that has an AMD processor, your PC might encounter a startup problem after installing SP3 (or SP3 will not download from Windows Update). Before attempting to install SP3, install sp37394 - Microsoft Windows XP SP3 Upgrade Utility for systems with AMD processors . For more information, the following support articles from the Microsoft Web site can help: 322389 - How to obtain the latest Windows XP service pack (in English) 936929 - Release notes for Windows XP Service Pack 3 (in English) NOTE: One or more of the links above will take you outside the Hewlett-Packard Web site.

Skype kernel32


Skype v6.6.0.106 is the last version which supports XP SP2. If you try install newer version, you will need SP3 installed, or you will get the kernel32 problem "Failed to get proc adress for getLogicalProcessorInformation (KERNEL32.Dll)".

If you don't want to install SP3 for your XP, here is a work around for you to run Skype with XP SP2.
1. Download Skypesetupfull.exe v6.3.30.105;
2. Uninstall your current version of Skype from Control Panel;
3. Block the website download.skype.com in your router or in the
Host file;
4. Delete any auto downloaded skypesetup.msi in %Temp%
folder;
5. Install Skype v6.3.30.105.
Done.

Dimension 5100 and windows xp pro SP3 clean install


Well if you have it installed on the computer and cant get past the Windows logo. Put the SP3 disk in and do a repair. Make sure you hit -R and not the repair button after clicking continue. Well the directions for a repair will be on the screen. That is my thoughts on what you should do. If you have already done this, then I'm not sure where you should head to next. Hope this helps!!

Tried to install sp37394 on my HP amd processor


Hi,

You can try installing SP3 in safe mode, so that It doesn't conflict with any application software.
It should get installed successfully and problems should be fixed.
(Restart PC and keep tapping F8 to get advanced menu options and choose safe mode from there)
Let me know if you need any more help !

Thanks !

2 Asus motherboards with no sound


There's only really two things you can try.

One, check first into the BIOS and make sure that the integrated sound is enabled.

Next, check to see if your video card, if it is PCI express, because it sometimes has their own sound.

If you have done these two things, then perform an ASUS update to the BIOS. Perhaps the BIOS is flaky.

If this doesn't work and you have checked everything else, then you'll need to contact ASUS directly about the motherboard issue.

DVD drive can not write disks after Win XP SP3 upgrade


It has nothing to do with the upper and lower filters. I have tried those multiple times. I had done almost everything that is in this forum and the drive still did not work. It is definitely XP SP3 that is causing the problem. I pulled the drive out and put it in another machine with a clean installation of XP SP1 installed. I then installed Roxio. The drive worked great. I then installed SP3 and the drive quit working again. I then uninstalled SP3 and the drive started working again. That seems to be a pretty good indication it is SP3. Two different machines that quit working when SP3 is installed? Doesn't that indicate it is SP3? I am not the only person having this issue either. Just search with Google and you will find other complaints with no solutions yet. The only common thing is XP SP3.
