Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional With Servise Pack 2 (e8503040) for PC

1 Answer

Windows XP uses 100% of ethernet connection for no reason

I installed windows xp again yesterday after a clean format and everything was running just fine; so I switched to my other pc to talk to some friend on skype and suddenly my internet failed for some reason... I looked at my router activity leds and i saw that my other, just formated pc's, ethernet port led was going like crazy and it was affecting also the internet connection's led on my router.

So i switched back to that pc to see what is going on and there was nothing at all, just a windows xp standby at desktop, nothing was happening, no updates no nothing, i checked task manager and i saw that for some reason the local area network that i had the ethernet plugged in, was 100% in use but i couldn't find out why.

While this was happening i couldn't connect to the internet on both of my PCs, so i disabled the local area connection on the problematic pc and everything was back to normal router wise..

Its driving me crazy cause i can't use the internet when i have my newly formatted pc plugged in..

Can anyone help me on this?
Thanks in Advance

Hi elizabeth,

It seems that you are selecting the quick format option when installing Windows XP.
Try running the XP setup again and choose the option to format the hard drive with the NTFS option, but use the standard option & NOT the "quick" option.
Let me know if this solves the problem.

Best wishes,
Graeme

Can i install windows-xp on my laptop which is currently working on windows-7 and use both of them.


Hi,
Yes you can install windows xp in windows 7.
Windows XP Mode is a virtual PC image of Windows XP Service Pack 3 that could be run on Windows 7 Professional, Enterprise or Ultimate versions. Applications installed into Windows XP Mode could be run in Desktop Mode or Seamless Mode. In Seamless Mode, applications appear to run natively within Windows 7, but they are actually running inside the Windows XP virtual machine. Windows XP Mode might also provide additional integration that traditional Virtual PC images might not be giving. Applications installed on the Windows XP image could be exposed to the Windows 7 Start menu. Applications run in seamless mode is having automatic access to the Windows 7 known folders like Documents, Pictures, Desktop, Music, etc. Also the Cut-and-paste is enabled between native Windows 7 applications and those running in Windows XP Mode. Applications running in Windows XP Mode might also access your Windows 7 network connection and USB devices.

If you want both OS you need to do a partition on the HD to proceed.IThat what i can figure from your quest.But if you just want XP just do a clean installation of it.

Perform a clean install of Windows XPA clean installation consists of removing all data from your hard disk by repartitioning and reformatting your hard disk and reinstalling the operating system and programs to an empty (clean) hard disk. For more information about important things to consider before you partition and format you hard disk and how to partition and format your hard disk by using the Windows XP Setup program, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:313348  (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/313348/ ) How to partition and format a hard disk by using Windows XP Setup programTo perform a clean installation of Windows XP, follow these steps:
  1. Back up all important information before you perform a clean installation of Windows XP. Save the backup to an external location, such as a CD or external hard disk.
  2. Start your computer from the Windows XP CD. To do this, insert the Windows XP CD into your CD drive or DVD drive, and then restart your computer.

    Note To boot from your Windows XP CD, the BIOS settings on your computer must be configured to do this.
  3. When you see the "Press any key to boot from CD" message, press any key to start the computer from the Windows XP CD.
  4. At the Welcome to Setup screen, press ENTER to start Windows XP Setup.
  5. Read the Microsoft Software License Terms, and then press F8.
  6. Follow the instructions on the screen to select and format a partition where you want to install Windows XP.
  7. Follow the instructions on the screen to complete the Windows XP Setup.
If you have successfully installed Windows XP, you are finished. If these steps did not help you install Windows XP, go to the "Next Steps" section.

Problem with windows. I hope it is XP. Try system restore to a nearby time. If you cannot do anything, try repairing with windows cd. If it is XP, I would recommend you to format and install windows7. If XP is only availalbe, do a format of C drive.

Hard drive full running xp ,drive is paritionedc,d


Hello,

To delete a partiition is quite easy in windows. but you will need a third party application like "partition magic" to merge two partitions together, this could be costly

The best advice I could give you is to back up all your information and reinstall your windows straight onto one partition. This will improve your overall speed and also probly also free more space by deleting unwanted programs, spam etc.

Low Virtual Memory problem


For some reason your CPU is not using your RAM for memory. It is going to the .pagesys file, which is a file on your hard drive that holds Virtual Memory. Virtual memory is only used when you run out of RAM. So here are your choices.
You are going to need to buy a copy of Windows XP or whatever operating system you want. Then you try two things: First Format your current hard drive to wipe it clean and reload Windows XP. That should clear up your problem if it is a software issue. If that does not work then it is a bad hard drive (but I don't think it is).
If it is a hardware issue, your hard drive is corrupt, then you will need to install a new hard drive and then partition, format and load WIndows XP. Either one of those options will get you running again.

Please rate this solution.

Ethernet not working after format and xp reinstall


Right-click the My Computer icon and select Manage, then go to the Device Manager in the list on the left and find the Network Adapter from the list on the right, right-click Network Adapter and select Uninstall. When you reboot, XP should find the Adapter and reinstall it automatically. Another reboot may be required.

If it still will not connect, go to the NIC Manufacturer's website and download the driver to removable media. The Driver Update option can be accessed in the Device Manager, but this time select Properties when you right-click the Network Adapter, and go to the Driver tab.
