What virus scanner do you use and when did you scan last? Your description sounds like the hard drive is failing but without more information no one can say for sure.

Boot in Safe Mode - in there no drivers are loaded. If even that fails then the bad drivers have corrupted some critical XP files, you will have to do a Repair install.

Old hp printer won't print anything with new hp desktop computer


Your PC has VISTA loaded (according to the HP web specs)

This printer has no specific driver for VISTA but basic functionality is supported by VISTA without the need to load a seperate driver.

refer HERE

The printer connects via a USB cable to the PC and should be detected automatically by VISTA whe the printer is turned on.

The original CD would have drivers for an earlier vesrion of windows (98 or XP) so you should uninstall any programs that were installed offthe disk.

Post back results or further questions for more assistance

Error on windows load


[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect /NoExecute=OptIn
This is what the boot.ini file should look like. Use U'r recovery disk to create or edit the ini file as above. U cannot use DOS 6.22 to create this file if U'r system is formated in NTFS.
If U don't have a recovery disk, make one from someone else's XP computer (DOS 7.xx).

XP install failed on every HP Cmpq D220M


try running a check disk utility on them to see if this fixes the problem, if not then your copy of XP is either flawed/invalid, or is missing some very crucial installation files
