    I will continue checking to see if there could be a virus. I'll do another scan and check the firewalls.

This could be many things and more.

Bad connection
if using a modem it could be noise on the line.
Your firewall is not allowing writing to disk from MS'

Even a virus or trojan cold be blocking it.

Instead of doing updates from your browser. go to MS downloads and use the online update function to see if that helps.

Thanks for using FIXYA

    have you checked that your router is not the problem. Somewhere in its setup it has the same power as a firewall and sites can be limited or blocked.

    As I said it can be many things, and not all of them obvious. These types of problems are difficult to fix blindly Were there any error messages on failure?

    Ok thanks for the update, come back if you need anymore assistance

Deanmrd,
Sounds like a driver communication issue. Please try uninstalling the driver and related software, reboot, and then re-install. Make sure to reboot in between.

Thanks.

Hi,

There is no "key" for SP3, its just an update.

Just click on the start menu and perform a Windows/Microsoft Update to install SP3 and then perform another update to update SP3.

Hi i like to install xp profecianal on my laptop m280e i have on it xp7 tablet ther any probleme to install xp profecianal please responce


XP professional will not work on that unit. The OS will install and work properly but you will lose many of your tablet functions. You have to have the tablet pc edition for all comonents to function. You would not gain anything by going to Pro, and your Windows or Microsoft update will keep your current tablet pc edition updated properly.
