Problem while installing Win XP Prof.

Hello sir i buy the new comp last month.

You have Intel i845-ITE8712 chipset with 1.7GHz cpu. I will just upgrad the SDRAM from 256 MB to 1GB (two 512MB 133MHz DIMM SDRAM).

Tis about REALTEK blahblah...i cannot see the volume tray icon

As you said you have formatted Drive C:, and installed XP SP3 and back again XP SP2.
Why don't you try formating the whole drive and reinstalling fresh Win XP SP2 and always choose NTFS partition only because all the features are supported in this partition.

First of all disconnect the Hard Disk do a check of switching on your comp and leaving it in on condition till you switch it off , repeat this exercise to ensure that there are no hardware problems . If your checks yield positive results then all you have to do is clean your hard disk thoroughly of any prevoius installations using the hard disk prep tools which you can download or obtain from vendor and then reinstall the OS .

Powercolor motherboard

Check on Ebay for a board, they have both new and used boards that will take that chip. Do a search for pentium 4 motherboard. As far as drivers being unavailable, your zip drive has native support in windows xp. It will recognize it and install drivers automatically. If you have a copy of windows ME then you can buy a bare bones system with no operating system and load it up yourself. You could probably even connect your existing hard drive and not lose any information. You would just need to due a repair with your Win ME disk. Hope this helps.
