Re: windows xp pro

I thinks thats a virus try updating your AV then scan for viruses and worms. Although you can try loging in as an administrator to check.

Susytem cannot detect the video card

Ok, in this case it is wise to check on "device manager" in your operative system. Click on "control panel" then click on the icon "System" then select the "Hardwaref" then open "Device Manager". See if theres any yellow flag indicating that there's a device that is not recognized. Since you seemed to have some knowledge, did u try runing the graphix card on safe mode (pressing the "F8" key several times while bios is booting up") and, was then it recognized?. If you've done all that already, the easiest way to discard any problem is installing the same graphix card in a different computer or borrow one from a friend and see if it works. Good luck.

Generic icons in control panel

This is usually caused by a corruption of your registry keys. If you have installed XP powertoys or UI Tweak, please apply this XP icon repair.
Otherwise, try the icon view repair at Kelly's Korner (#4). available by clicking here
If you suspect you may have been susceptible to a malware infection, I highly recommend a scan with Malwarebytes anit-malware available for free download here

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Uninstall XP Professional

If the computer was upgraded, then go into START | CONTROL PANEL | ADD/REMOVE Programs, see if uninstall Windows XP Pro is there. If it is you can uninstall it and not loose anything and the computer will reveert back to the operating system that was on there, before th upgrade.

Sometimes it is there, sometimes not.

If that doesn't work, then go to START | CONTROL PANEL | ADD/REMOVE Programs | windows components, and take out any uneeded components. Also check your system tray (bottom right by the clock) and see if there are eny programs there that you can close or better still uninstall as they eat memory and slow down your system.

Control pannel

your account/user must be set as guest, you should have it set as an adninistrator, either create yourself a new account or try to change your account type. If you are unable to set an account as administrator you will have to reinstall windows to set admin up.
