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.

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.

Read the above, Windows Installer 3.1 already in in SP2. Why do you need to install it?

Usb port not functioning

Windows XP is not compatible with USB 2.0 ports. Could you confirm you have Service pack 2 or 3 installed. If not, you should install SP2, so they should work.

Need help downloading and installing driver for hp photosmart C3100 printer said required section usbstor.inf not found xpsp3

Search your computer for the USB inf file usbstor.inf. Is this the first USB device you have ever used? What is the operating system on your computer? It appears as though it is searching for the Microsoft Service Pack 3 for XP, and can't find the file within the service pack, or the service pack. Have you recently installed MS updates?

Frequent Computer Crash

I think that you are mistaken something, I could'n find pvm900 at viaarena, no results at all.

If you use SP2 upgrade pack...well don't, some old peripherials refuse to work with the upgrade pack, instead install from full OEM cd or stick to SP1, I have some customers that still work with win98 and xp SP1 very well.

Try this: first update your DirectX software from microsoft, link:

Hope you are a genuine windows user because you need to be to get it, download and install.
If it did not solve the problem...enter windows in "safe mode" (F8 while loading computer), press "yes" to the question asked,

start-->control panel-->system-->hardware-->device manager-->open the + at the "display adapters" right click over the display and choose uninstall, do the same at "sound,video and mult..."
log off while shutting down the computer, turn on, windows will prompt for the device driver (once for display and once for sound), point to place where the display or sound card drivers are, if there are not recognized as valid drivers, maybe they are not compatible with OS, search for compatible soft at

Usb 2.0

this is a common error with operating systems and devices.
If you go into my Computer/system/device manager. And remove the installed USB devices. shutdown the computer, and reboot it. then try putting your USB device in.
What general happens, is that if you have had an older device in the USB port at any time, the port configures itself to this setting. options are to try another port on the computer ( some older ports only support usb1.1 )
ensure you have up to date drivers on the connecting device and on the connecting computer.
Hope this helps Mike @ Compurepair.
