Hello, I have installed Windows media center edition 2005 edition on my HP pavilion a1324n desktop PC. Whenever I try to access disk management it comes back with error “ RPC server is not available” & even my internet service is not working . I researched on Microsoft website. It says this is because I changed computer’s name that’s what causing this error. Could you please tell me what name I should put for my computer? I can reformat and reinstall windows MCE 2005 and change my computer’s name one more time. From where I can get this information about right computer name? Thanks Pal

Re: Problem with window media center installation ?
Hi there Even if you changed the computers name chances are that won't sort the problem, it sounds to me like a bad install in the first place. I would go with the re-install of the operating system. You can call your computer whatever you want most people use their name, for example "yourname-PC". Make sure that the disk and the lens is clean.

Hi there Savedump.exe is located in the folder C:\Windows\System32. The file is a Windows core system file. The program has no visible window. savedump.exe is a Microsoft signed file.
Therefore the technical security rating is 4% dangerous. Some
malware camouflage themselves as savedump.exe, particularly if they are
located in c:\windows or c:\windows\system32 folder. Thus check the
savedump.exe process on your pc whether it is pest. I recommend Security Task Manager for verifying your computer's security.
If you want to get the full potential of 64bit processor then you will have install XP X64 and yes i'm sure SP3 will install.
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.
