    Hi Bronk 50. Thanks for the advice but what is chkdsk/f and how so I use and find it ? Also, how do I re-install service pack 3. My machine came with no back up discs.

    chkdsk/f is a dos command which can fix any corrupted files on your computer(click start run cmd then chkdsk/f) as for service pack 3 you have to purchase a disk to install or if your xp is registered you might be able to download it from a website
    good luck

On March 6, 2008 Microsoft released Service Pack 3 (SP3) for Windows XP. Service Pack 3 contains all of the important Windows updates from previous service packs as well as additional updates that were released after Service Pack 2. To install Windows XP Service Pack 3 from the Internet on a home desktop computer use the Windows Update feature. CAUTION: If you have an HP Pavilion, HP Media Center or Compaq Presario desktop computer that has an AMD processor, your PC might encounter a startup problem after installing SP3 (or SP3 will not download from Windows Update). Before attempting to install SP3, install sp37394 - Microsoft Windows XP SP3 Upgrade Utility for systems with AMD processors . For more information, the following support articles from the Microsoft Web site can help: 322389 - How to obtain the latest Windows XP service pack (in English) 936929 - Release notes for Windows XP Service Pack 3 (in English) NOTE: One or more of the links above will take you outside the Hewlett-Packard Web site.
