    I recently reformatted my hard drive and upgraded to xp service pack 3. Since I did that I cannot get the game to open. It crashes after the opening credits.

    That did it! Thanks



    I had a play and got Windows 2000, the third display option from the left and I left checked the enable write combining box and the program seems to work as well (means less changes to do afterwards)

I had this problem and I went to the Program Compatibility wizard in XP.
Start
Accessories
Program Compatibility Wizard
Choose from list
Select Shrek 2 click next,
Follow all of the suggestions that they give. They will walk you through each step to try.

I followed each one and found that Compatibility mode for Windows 98/Me with 640x480 screen resolution worked after I did the display adjustments listed below.

I went to Display Properties, Advanced, Troubleshoot, slid the Hardware acceleration all the way to the left and unchecked the enable write combining box. I had to restart the computer after I did this, but now the game loads.

Is it possible to partion System drive.?


If your C drive take up all the 250GB, and the used data is not up to 250 GB( I means there are some free space on your c drive) you could use other partition software to release some free space ( resize partition) then create new partition, with the help of partition software, it could apply the operation without re install OS.

I have downgraded the OS of my Toshiba Satellite A205-S7468 from Windows Vista to Windows XP SP3. System is having trouble identifying the proper Audio Driver. On Windows Vista, the Audio Driver is...


You can try with an automatic driver tool, yes of course, it could be installed manually, but to avoid the hassles, you better opt for a driver utility.
Download and install this software (Device Doctor Free). Once it's installed, run the program and click "Begin Scan", wait for few seconds until the scan completes and search the scan result for realtek, if so click it, the direct download page will open up, download and install the driver, that should work without any more hassles.

If you have problem, let me know.
Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

My xp home sp3 wants a least 2 restarts before it


"Wants a reboot?" That's strange.

If you have the McAffee software available for re-installation - I would remove McAffee (UNPLUG YOUR NETWORK CABLE, as you'll be naked to the world) and see if it boots OK without McAffee.

If it is happy to boot without McAffee, then try re-installing McAffee and see how it acts.

You can always use something other than McAffee if it ends up being the culprit of your problems.

Also, check for malware. Download MalWare Bytes (http://www.malwarebytes.org) and make sure to update the definitions and run it across your computer. The Quick Mode is effective, and the Thorough Mode takes hours .... :)

Just make sure to be careful when you have no AntiVirus installed to not go playing on the internet .... download MalWare Bytes (install & update) before you remove McAffee and unplug from the world.

Office XP sp3 update


SP3 is a huge file approx 320Mb, before to go to Microsoft WEB site to download it, make sure you have sufficient space for the download and sufficient space to install it. If you limited space, remove unnecessary files and do a disk cleanup. After you have downloaded SP3 copy it to a CD, remove the downloaded SP3 and install SP3 from the CD.

HDD Reformatting


why not reinstall sp3 again for windows xp if it freezes then it might be looking for files that don't exist anymore. If the virus attatched itself to your files they may have been removed when you ran your virus software. you don't need to format to reload windows. Just simply do a clean reinstall on C drive.
