Hi, Hardware wise this could be a memory issue. However, more often than not, it would be similar to a video problem that it either freezes or BSOD. Try reseating your mem sticks; OS wise, it may be corrupt drivers or XP startup files. Try to run in Safe Mode and check it if will load fully. If yes, you can start finding out anything out of the ordinary. If no also, then you may have to repair Windows; Virus wise, it may be that you have a virus or malicious software running at startup instructing your PC to shutdown. Try running in Safe Mode. If it will load, go to Start, Run, type "msconfig", Startup. Check all the programs that run at start up and uncheck those that you do not recognize. Reboot. If it will not run even in Safe Mode, you may need to reinstall/repair your Windows XP. Good luck and hope this be of some help to you.

Sir i m using windows 7 ultimate...n i want install tally 7.2. i cant use it in windows 7. i m also trying run as administrator, change compatibility mode in windows xp sp2 mode...but i hve same


Tally 7.2 is not longer supported. You might need to upgrade to the newest version.
The only other suggestion is to see if you can run in XP Mode. This will depend upon your computer requirements.

Running Windows XP Mode requires:

1. Windows 7 Professional, Enterprise, or Ultimate editions.
2. A computer capable of hardware virtualization. This means your computer has a central processing unit (CPU) with either Intel-VT or AMD-V virtualization features.
3. Virtualization features turned on in your computer's basic input/output system (BIOS).

To determine whether your computer's CPU is capable of hardware virtualization, go to the Windows XP Mode and Windows Virtual PC support website and download a utility that can check whether your Intel or AMD CPU is compatible.

To find your brand of processor so you can download the appropriate utility, click the Start button , right-click Computer, and then click Properties. Under System, next to Processor, you can see what type of CPU you have.

Even if your CPU can run Windows XP Mode, you might also need to turn on virtualization settings in your computer's BIOS. Procedures vary depending on the BIOS manufacturer. For more information, see BIOS: frequently asked questions.

I have a hp pavilion a6030in pc with windows 7 coz it has some problem while video editing so i want to install windows xp but while formating a blue screen will appear every time so i cant format it. so...

the thing with this computer is it BIOS chip set setting are not configured to handle XP, you will have to enable it in the BIOS.

Problem with that if your BIOS will not allow XP to run, you will have to go back to HP or the motherboard maker and change the BIOS chipset.

hope this helps

Upgraded mon pc dont shut off fan con to run

Computer doesn’t power down when users shut down
In some cases, Windows XP’s Setup program can misidentify the power management scheme in a computer’s BIOS as Advanced Power Management (APM) instead of Advanced Configuration Power Interface (ACPI). When this happens, users will notice that the computer no longer automatically powers down when they shut down Windows XP. Instead, they’ll see the message It Is Now Safe To Turn Off Your Computer and be forced to manually press the power button to turn off the computer.

You can verify this problem by checking the power management configuration in two places—Device Manager and the Control Panel. To quickly access Device Manager, select Start | Run, type Devmgmt.msc in the Open text box, and click OK. When you see the Device Manager window, locate and open the System Devices item. If Setup identified the system as having an APM-compliant BIOS, it will be listed as a Standard PC in the System Devices tree. (If it were identified as having an ACPI-compliant BIOS, you would see it listed here as a Microsoft ACPI-Compliant System.)

To check the power management configuration in the Control Panel, open the Control Panel from the Start menu. If the system is using Category View, select Performance And Maintenance and then click the Power Options icon. If the system is using Classic View, just click the Power Options icon. If Setup identified the system as having an APM-compliant BIOS, you’ll see an APM tab in the Power Options Properties dialog box. (If the system were identified as having an ACPI-compliant BIOS, you wouldn’t see an APM tab.)

You may be able to fix this problem with a BIOS update. To begin, check with the computer manufacturer’s Web site to see if it’s providing the latest BIOS update. If you’re troubleshooting an off-brand computer, you may be on your own as far as tracking down the BIOS update. Here’s how.

Once you obtain and install the BIOS update according to the manufacturer’s instructions, you must perform what I call a Refresh Installation, in which you reinstall Windows XP on top of an existing Windows XP installation. You must perform this reinstall operation because the power management features are tied to a special power management Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL). During the Refresh Installation procedure, Setup will completely redetect all installed hardware, including the updated BIOS, and rebuild the power management HAL as well as the part of the registry in which information about the installed hardware is stored.
