I'm running Win XP Home on a 1.3 GHz machine with a Gig of ram, 30 Gig HD. All is well except Win XP will not automatically shut off the machine when exiting. It used to when I was running Win 98, but not in Win XP. I noticed there are 'Power', 'Sleep', and 'Wake' buttons on the KB next to F12, but they don't seem to do anything.
Do I need a special driver for this KB?

Well about guaranteed your 2 gigs ram is probably DDR II ram which has maximum of four gigs with 64 bit processing and 2 with 32 bit is. So motherboard needs upgrade. 35.00 for good giabit or board with 1000 megs a sec ethernet lan. With ddrIII ram. And upgrade operating system I believe win 8 has max 16 gig ram win 7 uses 8 gis vista and longhorn 64 use 4 and xp normal edition 32 bit uses 2 max. So you about have to run win 7 or 8. Win 7 will become direct x incomparable at some point making us change to win 8. Win8 cost like 300 to 350 and tiger direct.com has good deal of the win 7 pro media center for 75 bucks. So spend 150 on good speed 8 gig ram, 125 bucks for 12 core and at 4 GHz I think. And a board for 35. Reuse all other componets. And you\'ll have a 2500 dollar computer and best on the block.

You can insert the Windows XP CD while logged on Win 98 and run a test from the CD. Obviously you need a larger Hard Disk and at least 126 MB RAM to bring XP to a usable speed. You can look for RAM upgrade options in this page.
It could be bad RAM, but it could also be drive error.
Try running chckdsk.exe
If the drive is ok, try copying the win xp cd to the HD and try to install from the HD
First, you need to copy your Windows XP Setup CD contents to your harddrive. I recommend saving the xp install files/folders to a separate partition than where you're going to install xp to (ie. have setup files at d:\winxp\ and then install xp to c:\ drive)
restart your computer with the win 98 boot disk
at the command prompt change to the drive with the xp files
ie. cd d:\winxp\i386\
type winnt to start installing
install as usual
RIGHT Click... My Computer From the menu choose Properties Click the Advanced tab Click Startup and Recovery Under the system failure area take the check OUT of the box that says Automatically Restart.
Windows XP sucks on 128MB, get yourself more memory, go to 1 Gig. Your problem could also be hardware such as a power supply so re-comment if the suggestion did not work for you.
