If you have more than one memory, try to remove one and install XP. If the first memory that you used gives you same result, try to remove and use the 2nd memory.

    If you only have on memory try to clean the connector of the memory using a pencil eraser. Then try to run the Xp instalation again.

Brother DCP165c Driver installation Problem


I would boot in safemode (hold down f8 immediately when it starts (when it says Starting Windows xp), then delete all printers (associated with this) in device manager.

remove any printer software as well (add remove programs or start programs (printer program name, remove software IF listed),

also remove the port you are using in device manager be it lpt or usb. if the drivers siuggests installking without it connected do so, otherwise, just restart and it shoudl start installking the hardware amnd software it finds. be sure you have the correct drivers ready as well>
Good Luck

No Sound After Reinstall


Have you Reset you BIOS,because after you build a machine up,the Bios has to be set to Default,and were you grounded with a arm band when you put the parts together?,During the assembly it is paramount that you wear a grounded arm band so that your body electrical discharge does not interfere with the components,you probably have a hardware/software conflict.some thing in the BIOS is most likely left on.or set to hardware.

Logitech QuickCam1150 Notebook Deluxe camera not configured properly in xp error


Hi, Please uninstall any logitech software version present on your OS (if available) - Then please proceed to clean boot. ( http://logitech-en-amr.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/logitech_en_amr.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=228 ) -> Unplug all the USB devices connected to the computer ( Less keyboard + mouse ) please use corded kbd+mouse if
possible rather than a cordless device. -> Go to device manager -> Delete all the USB HOST CONTROLLER -- All of them -- -> The host controller might reinstall them itslef, let the computer handle the reinstallation -> If the computer does not reinstall the host controllers, trigger the detection using the DM function " Scan for
new hardware " ( The computer with magnifier icon ) -> Once reinstalled, clean boot -> Reinstall the software if available and/or plug the hardware when needed. -> Should work.
This TB delete the usb ports " memory " means if a device as been previously flagged with error, it will redetect
the device without the flag, unless there is some serious issue with the hardware/OS
If after this the issue persist, then I suggest you to call Logitech support to issue a replacement, hardware
failures are covered by warranty terms

You cant install xp on one machine and then move the drive to another. By nature the xp install is tied to the hardware of the machine it is installed on
