Lost of sound with PV4MME Motherboard (Audio device not working)


When I tried the same thing, I had more problems than you and I needed a complete re-installation of the windows XP SP2 (not SP3). I traced the problem to be a bug in the SP3 (Service Pack Three), but, since microsoft have their own way of gathering service information, I could not communicate with them, I re-installed the windows XP SP2. Now, I have changed the "Updates" to come in, but I decide which ones I want or I don't want and I mark them "check mark off". I noticed them pushing their wares a couple of times and I Xed thm out. If you do the same, remember that if you shut down, it will install whatever garbage they have, unless you click on the line below the "off window". Take the time and read the panel for shut down (not the restart). Thank you for your consideration and choice to use our service... CONSTANTIN (arzconst)

Go to Start > Run and type services.msc. Locate the nVidia Driver Helper item and right click it. Select Properties. Set the startup value of the service to “Manual” or “Disabled”.
Your computer should shut down normally now.

Won't shut down completely


If shutting down XP takes what seems to be an inordinate amount of time, here are a couple of steps you can take to speed up the shutdown process:
  • Don't have XP clear your paging file at shutdown. For security reasons, you can have XP clear your paging file (pagefile.sys) of its contents whenever you shut down. Your paging file is used to store temporary files and data, but when your system shuts down, information stays in the file. Some people prefer to have the paging file cleared at shutdown because sensitive information such as unencrypted passwords sometimes ends up in the file. However, clearing the paging file can slow shutdown times significantly, so if extreme security isn't a high priority, you might not want to clear it. To shut down XP without clearing your paging file, run the Registry Editor (click Start > Run, then type regedit in the Run box) and go to:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management

  • Change the value of ClearPageFileAtShutdown to 0. Close the Registry, and restart your computer. Whenever you turn off XP from now on, the paging file won't be cleared, and you should be able to shut down more quickly.

    Note: Please be careful when editing the Registry; you can do a lot of damage here. Don't change or delete anything unless you know exactly what it is.

Computer restarts on shutdown


If your computer constantly restarts while you are using it, or if you are trying to shut down the computer after it has stopped unexpectedly, click to clear the Automatically restart check box. If you clear this check box, you receive an error message when the computer stops responding. This error message may describe the cause of the problem. You can also review the system log in Event Viewer to view the critical stop error that occurs when the computer restarts.

  1. Click the Start button, right-click My Computer, click Properties, click the Advanced tab, and then click Settings under Startup and Recovery.
  2. Under System Failure, view the Automatically restart check box. If the Automatically restart check box is selected, Windows automatically restarts if the computer stops unexpectedly.
Thanks & Regards

Windows XP stops at "shutting down"....


It seems to me that You need to uncheck the "delete paging file at shutdown". Deleting the paging file slows the shutdown of Your system considerably.

Continuous loop and cannot charge battery


Windows service pack 2 is a huge update and takes a long time to complete, I will suggest walking away from your computer and having lunch, go to sleep, watch a movie, etc... while the update finishes. If you have already done this with the same result? I would look for a Windows XP SP2 disk (XP with service pack 2 integrated) and try that. Otherwise Microsoft sent out many disks containing the SP2 update itself on a disk, and you could try the SP2 update from one of those (if you can find one) after your clean install.
Good luck.

Hard drive heads crash upon shutdown


Dear delfixya

Hard Drives have one running speed once they are fired up, unlike a car engine which can idle down when not driving. They don't spin down until the power is shut off, and that is after all data is safe and RAM is not shadowing data from the HD.

Hard drives making clicking sounds after shutting down is an imminent sign of impending failure of the heads. Replacement is the best thing.
