Since you donot have the windows xp cd , you would not be able to enable the fax feature in windows xp home edition.
Alternatively you can download a fax program from the interent and configure the same to send faxes.

One such porgram is called snappy fax, can be downloaded from the link below

I cannot boot from windows xp - pc worked ok yesterday. forced it by deisabling auto restart - now have blue screen with error code 0x00000024...... what can I do?

Hi there and welcome at Fixya, the support team (lfete)

If you have the windows setup cd, try first to run "chkdsk" command at the computer: put the setup cd in the computer and check the boot options to be first at the cd/dvd player- reboot the computer and when the wizard start press R for repair, choose the operating system, normally C:\ windows, enter the password and then enter chkdsk and return (note some times you have to enter chkdsk/R or /P) and let the program run through, When it is done (it can take a hour or more) then take the setup cd out and reboot the computer again. That´s it :O)

Still Not Running? Than start the computer and press F8 and the choose "the last known and running configuration"

If the computer still not running, you can try to use System Restore in Safe Mode (pressing F8 at the start of the computer) and roll the computer back to a date where your computer was running fine .o) You simply log in your account and the go to START- All Programs- Accessories- System Accesories-- System Restore AND follow the Wizard

Still not running, you can use the feature repair with the windows setup cd (that means you are going to reinstall only the windows system, but the programs and the documents etc are remaining on the hard drive). FOR DOING THAT you have to reboot the computer with the windows setup cd and choose "install" at the first screen that prompt and THEN choose "Repair" in the wizard. When it is finish you have to install all the extra updates for windows.
REMEMBER: for this method you have to have the product code for windows (the serial) ready because the wizard ask you for it.

Hope it helps
IF NOT then try to return here

Have a nice time over there

Missing or bad msacm32.dll file attributed to many files not running, i.e., setup.exe, rundll32.exe, Explorer.exe and many more. is there any way to fix it without reformatting

The answer depends on why these files are missing.

Can you boot the computer at all or into safe mode?

If so you could run the "System Restore Wizard" and restore your system to a point before this problem happened. You can find the system restore wizard in the windows help.

This should fix the problem if has been caused by a virus or an accidental file deletion but if your disk had bad blocks or something then it might need replacing.

If this does not solve the problem tell us more about the exact error message and when it occurs.

Ethernet cotroller drivers for Win XP Prof

Here is a link to an excellent tutorial that will guide you through the process of updating drivers in XP.
It has instructions for opening the Device Manager and finding out what hardware is installed in your system. Then you need to go online from another computer, download the appropriate drivers and burn them to cd, load this cd in your computer, then update the drivers on your system from the cd. You can drag the setup files to your desktop and install them from there.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment and rate this post....thanks!
