Checked my XP via control panel: usbhub.sys usbohci.sys usbport.sys usbui.sys good luck...may be difficult to force drivers...when system asks to install software, insert the original XP cd. The driver did not change with SP2, as far as I know.

Install windows xp3

I hope you mean SP3(Service Pack 3) on XP. Please follow these steps

Do one of the following:

  • If you downloaded SP3 from the website, to install it immediately, click Open or Run and follow the instructions on your screen. To install the program later, click Save and download the installation file to your computer. When you're ready to install the service pack, double-click the file.

  • If you're installing SP3 from the Service Pack 3 CD, insert the disc into your computer with your current version of Windows XP running, and the Software Update Installation Wizard should automatically appear. If this wizard doesn't appear, click Start, double-click My Computer, right-click your CD or DVD drive, and then click AutoPlay.

  1. On the Windows XP Service Pack 3 page, click Next.

  2. Follow the instructions that appear on your screen.

  3. After the installation is complete, click Finish to restart your computer.

  4. If you disabled your antivirus software, enable it again.

I have a Dell Inspiron B130 computer and a Dell Photo AIO printer 966. Recently I could not get my computer to print on the printer. It had worked up to this point. I uninstalled the printer driver and...

First check the "Device Manager", for any USB Driver "errors".
There are 3 USB ports for your Laptop, check all the ports.
If you are using XP on your laptop, is your service packs up to date? For USB 2.0 port to function properly you got have to update a least Service Pack 2 for Win XP.

1. Have you check your USB port? Just plug in any USB devices eg. Flash drive, external HDD... and see whether the port detect the USB devices.

2. Is the USB cable for the Printer faulty? Try a new USB cable.

Hope it helps.

My window xp2 is not installing window installer 3.1 help me

Windows Installer 3.1 Redistributable supports Windows 2000 with Service Pack 3 or later, Windows XP, Windows XP Service Pack 1, Windows XP Service Pack 2 and Windows Server 2003. Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1 contains Windows Installer 3.1 and therefore can't be installed or upgraded by this redistributable.

If you have a VALID XP license there is no activation code for the service pack.

You download it from Microsoft who will evaluate if you have a legal copy of Windows XP and will install the service pack. If you have a pirate copy they will document it and refuse to install the service pack.

Go to the Microsoft site and have them scan for updates for you.
