Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
I seem to be missing my control panel is there a way to get this back or do I just need to reinstall?
The problem in the registry. Go to start => run regedt and navigate to the following entries :
=> is there an entry called Start_ShowControlPanel and what's its value ? If it's different from 2 then set it to 2.
=> in each location is there an entry called NoControlPanel and what's its value ? If it's different from 0 then set it to 0.
=> is there an entry called NoClose and what's its value ? If it's different from 0 then set it to 0.
and then let me know
there is one more way if this thing doesnt work pls let me know

you might have missed something during the re installation process of the xp operating system
did you install service pack 3
Test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive EIDE SATA
the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty
computers need power and data to travel through every working device and to continue its cycle and to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
Click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll to display adapters + to expand you might see a yellow question mark ? or exclamation mark ! or a red x right click select reinstall drivers
You might need to upgrade your graphics card drivers
you might have to remove your graphics card to make sure the socket is clean
restart your computer the reinstall it this should activate found new hardware wizard
if your computer came with a mother board disk the drivers could be on it
click start control panel display desktop you can select a different desktop from the drop down list
or a browse button where you can select different pictures this may vary depending on your operating system
also you can change the settings for more or less pixels or from the drop down list pick the appropriate level of color range or troubleshoot also select advanced then general dpi normal size,larger size or custom settings
always click APPLY after making any changes
you must now have an internet connection to download the bios updates
hope this helps
