Old PC, 256 MB RAM, PC seems to return to factory settings on Reboot, but maintains any apps that were installed (i.e. MS Office). Does not save any files once it is rebooted. Any suggestions other than more RAM?

Hi

try checking the CMOS battery (the battery that maintain time and date and bios data e.g. setup). you will have to open the case (make sure you unplug the power cable).

look for a either silver round battery or green cylindrical battery.
if it's the silver battery then you can pull out easily and change it (cheap nowadays).

you could also reset the CMOS/bios by looking for cmos jumper on the motherboard (check your user manual)

I hope this helped

I have xp i have 512 MB RAM and P3 processer but i cant not install ms office 2007


In order to install any software, it is imperative to ensure that the computer in question meets or exceeds the minimum requirements.

Foremost, Microsoft Office Basic/Standard/Home & Student/Professional/Small Business/Professional Plus/Enterprise 2007 require a CD-ROM or DVD drive. Microsoft Office Ultimate 2007 requires a DVD drive.

Microsoft Office Basic/Standard/Home & Student/Professional/Small Business/Professional Plus/Enterprise/Ultimate 2007 requires a system that has at least 500 MHz (since a Pentium III can range in speed from 450 MHz to 1.4GHz, it seems likely that you've met this specification); & at least 256 MB of RAM (your system's 512 MB meets this & is the minimum amount recommended for Outlook Instant Search).

However, you did not make mention of which service pack (1, 2, or 3) that is installed on your version of MS Windows XP (MS Office Basic/Standard/Home & Student/Professional/Small Business/Professional Plus/Enterprise/Ultimate 2007 requires at least SP2); nor did you mention how much free disk space is on your system. MS Office Basic/Standard/Home & Student 2007 requires at least 1.5 GB (MS Office Professional/Small Business/Professional Plus/Enterprise 2007 requires at least 2 GB of free disk space & MS Office Ultimate 2007 requires at least 3 GB of free disk space. Also, MS Office Basic/Standard/Home & Student/Professional/Small Business/Professional Plus/Enterprise 2007 requires an Internet browser comparable to at least Internet Explorer 6 (IE6).

By the way, OneNote Instant Search & OneNote Audio Search require a CPU of at least 2 GHz & at least 1 GB of RAM. 1 GB of RAM is also the minimum requirement for grammar & contextual spelling in Word. Business Contact Manager requires a CPU of at least 1 GHz & at least 512 MB of RAM. Since you did not mention your exact iteration of MS Win XP (Home/Professional/Professional 64-Bit), it is important to note that "Send to OneNote 2007" print driver, Internet Fax, & Groove Folder Synchronization are not available on 64-bit operating systems.

Furthermore, I do not find it reasonable to quote any more specifications such as those for MS Office Accounting products unless found necessary, besides such specs are readily available at http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/products/2007-microsoft-office-release-system-requirements-HA010166865.aspx?CTT=1.

It is entirely possible that the cause of installation failure could be a faulty optical disk drive (CD/DVD/etc.) an invalid product key or perhaps an operating system (OS) which the installation deems to not be genuine.

Update your OS to XP service Pack 3 from microsoft.
If your operating system do not have any service Pack(SP) ie minimum SP2 yet, your M/S office 2007 will not function.

Do your Operating system meets the below requirement?

Microsoft Office Basic 2007 requirement:-
CPU: 500 megahertz (MHz) processor or higher

RAM: 256 megabyte (MB) RAM or higher1

HDD: 1.5 gigabyte (GB); a portion of this disk space will be freed after installation if the original download package is removed from the hard drive.

Drive: CD-ROM or DVD drive

Display: *1024x768 or higher resolution monitor

OS: Microsoft Windows XP with *Service Pack (SP) 2, Windows Server 2003 with SP1, or later operating system

*Internet Explorer 6.0 or later, 32 bit browser only. Internet functionality requires Internet access (fees may apply).
