Re: loading xp home edition

I can try and suggest you check the cables from you CD-ROM, any sort of damage the CD might have. Or then again, if your Hard Drive is SATA connected, then you'll need to load the SATA controler (F6 on the windows instalation) And, in last case, either upgrade your bios or try a different CD-ROM drive unit. But I would defenatly put my money on the cables.

Hi!! my home pc specification , intel p4 865gvhz , 3ghz cpu speed, 512 mb ram. what are the possible upgradation i can do n my pc? how can i improve my graphics?

You can upgrade system memory up to 2Gb and additional can add a AGP graphics card. This is the only way but i'm not recommending this because you can by new generation cpu+motherboard+memory under 10k it will be the better choice than upgradation. Buu AMD CPU ... always better than Intel (comparing the price value)

I don't think that you need a bios upgrade for a 'virus' infection - they generally don't go there, as modifications to the flash memory can be tricky and difficult without knowing the flash type; viruses generally affect OS areas as being much easier.
