Re: need to setup windows xp faxing
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.

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.
OK get into system BIOS, prees DEL. F2, or whatever your key is. Set in the BIOS to Boot the DVD FIRST, Then insert you DVD, Boot off your Windows DVD, & install from, the DVD, go through the setup to where it asks you if you wish to FORMAT, choose FULL NTFS Format and let it complete, then proceed with the install, done.
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!
