Requirements for building up a pentium 2


I'm not sure what you want to do, but you will find that you are going to be severely limited in what you can upgrade on the mainboard. This is because the mainboard was built specifically for HP/Compaq and as such the BIOS is not as generic as with an brand name mainboard that you can buy. Thus, you will find that you may have fewer CPU and RAM upgrade options. There is a good chance that you can probably expand the RAM capacity above 2GB. Remember though, that if you are only running a 32-bit Operating System, you will be limited to 3GB of accessible RAM regardless of the amount installed. Realistically, you probably won't be very happy with whatever performance gain(s) you can get for the money you will spend on this machine.

That said, most newer HP/Compaq desktops utilize a fairly standard ATX case. This allows you the possibility to install a completely new mainboard/CPU/RAM to gain massive performace benefits for the money spent. You may even be able to continue to use the existing hard drive and CD/DVD drive if they are SATA rather than PATA interface.

I assuming you want to install a new video card. Enter the BIOS and change from "onboard" to maybe PCI, PCI-e ,PCI 1x etc, shutdown the PC install your card. Start PC and install the software for the new GPU if windows 8 doesn't have a driver of its own.

Have a HP SR1010V, 33GB HD - XP Home. Want to 1) replace HD with a 100-200GB HD OR 2) ADD a 100-200GB HD and 3) ADD a DVD drive. What is best way to copy data to a new HD and to boot the new HD. Rather...


The easiest route would be to install the new hard drive in place of the old hard drive and place the old hard drive below the new hard drive and make it a secondary hard drive or slave drive. Once you have them installed this way you can install Windows XP Home to the new hard drive once you have it installed to the hard drive then you can copy everything from your old hard drive to the new one. Once you have everything copied from the old hard drive you can then format it within Windows to have 33GBs of space to store anything you wish. If you need more detailed instructions don't hesitate to reply.

Error loading operating system


You will need to perform a repair install using a Windows CD. The current configuration on the hard drive was basically with an entirely different computer and thus, it does not know how to "talk" to the new hardware. The repair install should fix that and create a new Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL) that will enable Windows to "talk" to the new hardware.
