Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC
Replaced ram. still not booting
Runs w/sp1 fine.
Considering replaceing bios.
any ideas. Processor is intel celeron. built in media cards (vid/sound)
Any solutions come to mind?
Generally when an SP2 installation doesn't take it means that there was some corruption of the SP1 installation. Usually virus related.
Although it is possible, I doubt very highly that replacing hardware will fix this problem. This is a software related issue and should be repaired as such.
You'll need to boot to the XP recovery console and then perform an uninstallation of SP2. Then you'll need to disinfect the SP1 installation (check for winlogon infections!)
Please, do not attempt to physically replace the BIOS ROM. You'll probably brick your motherboard.
If this doesn't solve your errors or you need more information please post back with what BSoD you're getting when the computer starts. And if possible upload the .dmp file from C:\Windows\Minidump to a file hosting service.
