Can I change my windows 7 computer to XP with an XP disk

yes --
But you will loose all of your files and folders when you format the hard dive to install win xp
you cannot run 2 operating systems on the one hard drive unless the hard drive is partitioned ( in effect having 2 hard drives on the one disc) as it causes massive conflicts in operation
Why any one would install an out dated , unsupported operating system like win xp in place of win 7 beats me
of course if you insist in doing it you could always install and extra hard drive in the computer and run it as an extra hard drive and install the win xp on it and still retain all of your files and folders

I installed the magic jack since this time no other sound device is working except skypke and the magic jac

What it sounds like is a very rare (these days) occurance of an IRQ conflict. This is called an Interupt Request. An interrupt request is a service in the operating system which dedicates resources to devices. Obviously, Magic Jack has swiped an IRQ for itself (which is probably in conflict with your sound device). This kind of thing was very common in Windows 98, but XP and above pretty much fixed IRQ conflicts...however, they can occur if a device is a real resource hog.
There is a fix for this problem.

First of all, if you have XP, go into Accessories, System Tools, System Information.Click on the Hardware Resources. Then, Click on IRQ. Note the IRQ being used my Magic Jack and the IRQ being used by the sound device. Write down the IRQ number for each. I am betting both devices are on the same IRQ. Note, in XP, you will have IRQ 0 thru 23. Do NOT disturb IRQ's 0 thru 10! Leave these alone. Now, take note and see if there is an IRQ that is SKIPPED. Or there is an IRQ that is FREE (not being used). Write this down.

Now what you want to do, is you want to re-assign your sound device to a different IRQ. In order to do this, see this article:

After resetting the IRQ's involved, reboot the computer for the changes to take effect. If the IRQ's you set do not result in a conflict resolution, try a different IRQ. It may take a couple of two or three times, before the operating system accepts your choices.

Blue screen on boot up. ***stop: 0x00000024 (0x00190203, 0x86575828, 0xc0000102, 0x00000000)

This problem is generally caused by driver conflicts, corrupted operating system files, hardware conflicts and software conflicts. Sometimes virus causes this. First check recent changes to your system, maybe software installation or hardware installation and uninstall them if you did so from the Safe Mode. Also scan the system using updated antivirus. You also need to clean all the hardware components if the above mentioned tips doesn't work. Good luck..

If you have installed any Software or Driver, please uninstall it because that is conflicting Windows Driver.

If you did not installed or changed recently, simply change the RAM.

I have quicken 2009 ver 7 on an XP pro PC using a Kodak 5300 printer and now it will crash everytime I try to print checks. It was working with now changes and now it's not.

Software conflicts occur more than you would think.

IMHO, the most stable platform is Linux. Windows XP Pro is the most stable Operating system Micro$oft has put out ever.

The conflict is somewhere in the software.
either Quickbooks or Kodaks printer software.

The most likely cause is the Kodak printer software.

There is a reason why the printer ink is so cheap. Because of the questionable and oft disparaged software that is packaged with it.

I suggest updating your kodak printer drivers and / or completely uninstall and reinstall the drivers.

Open Device manager and check each hardware's driver for conflicts. If you find one, change the resources such that there are no conflicts. Also check your input devices like mose, keyboard etc to see if they are in proper working condition by testing it on another PC...sodeep

The Windows 98 system may have changed the drive letter of the thumb drive. In windows XP, open control panel - administrative tools. Then go into the removable drives option where you can change the drive letter. Change the thumb drive to a drive letter that does not conflict with another device on your system. Make sure your thumb drive is in the USB slot. Alternately, you can change the drive letter of the conflicting drive...
