Problem with Window XP Home Edition

Hi,

If you can help me in any way please let me know. I have include a picture of my computer screen with the type of problem that I am having for your evaluation.

Thank,

Freddie Boyd
boydfred@att.net

This is how my gateway computer, running window XP home edition,
looks like when it is running. The background is all white with no back ground image, and filled with error messages. I am still able to run other program but they speed up and slow down because something is activating my hard drive. And, the hour glass is constantly been display on the screen.

I can’t add or remove programs my computer system tasks.
I can’t run desktop recovery.
I can’t update windows xp because it tells me that the program is incompatible.
I can’t change the Theme or desktop settings.

I need to activate windows


What you have typed there appears to be the activation code. To get windows XP working you need to insert the Windows XP program disk in your computer and follow the prompts on the screen including putting in that series of numbers into the spaces provided. The software should have come with instructions that step you through the process. If not then please go to this website:

When opening up an attachment it comes up with picture management instead of the original, how do I stop this. I do not know how to fix this problem. I have windows xp computer.


Hi p_jordan3
Make a save of the attachment , for instance in " my pictures " . Right click on the saved file and select " open with " . In this window , click on the program you would like to open the file with and check " always open this file with this program " or something like that . All attachments of the same kind will now open up in their original format .
Best regards ,

Load ed cw get all ok but requires a sound card


Go to your Start menu, click on all Programs, Select Accessories, then System Tools, then click on System Information. A window will open titled 'System Information'. In the System Summary section, make a note of the System Manufacturer and the model number and report it back to us, along with the processor and the total physical memory.
Now open the Components menu by clicking on the plus sign next to the word, and select the Sound Device window by clicking on the words "Sound Device" Report back what appears in the window at the right when you do this, and we'll take it from there.
