Microsoft Windows XP Media problem new install

I recently installed Windows Media on a computer. I need to find out how to fix the resolution on the computer. It won't go above 4dpi. I can't get online due to not being able to see the screen. Is there a way to fix the problem without being online??

My computer with windows xp after a while dumps its memory


First off, have you installed any new hardware or software/drivers recently?

Random memory dumps are caused by out-dated or incorrect drivers, or malfunctioning hardware.

In most cases you can reference an error message by going into your event logs using

start, run
type
eventvwr.msc
Click on system or application

Dr Watson is a program in windows xp that is used to diagnose these error messages. Look at this link

My window xp2 is not installing window installer 3.1 help me


Windows Installer 3.1 Redistributable supports Windows 2000 with Service Pack 3 or later, Windows XP, Windows XP Service Pack 1, Windows XP Service Pack 2 and Windows Server 2003. Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1 contains Windows Installer 3.1 and therefore can't be installed or upgraded by this redistributable.

Read the above, Windows Installer 3.1 already in in SP2. Why do you need to install it?

FULL VERSION OF XP PRO TO DOWNLOAD ?


At the moment, the only method of getting Windows XP install media is by purchasing the disc or ordering install media directly from Microsoft. The other way is if you're a MSDN subscriber, you can usually download software images from Microsoft and use your own key.

The other way to do this is by finding a friend who has a Windows XP cd of your version [for example, Windows XP Home OEM, OEM meaning that the disc came with a manufacturer such as Dell or HP, or Windows XP Home Retail, meaning that the disc came in a Windows XP Home box someone purchased]. If you can borrow thier disc, you can use your key off of your COA [Certificate of Authenticity] which is a sticker on your computer showing your 25 digit license key. This will install Windows XP legally on your system again.

If you own an OEM computer like Compaq, HP, Dell, etc, you can also try contacting support for that PC manufacturer and seeing if you can order recovery media for your computer model. This will install the operating system, all drivers, and software that originally came with your computer back to default when you bought your PC. You may also have recovery software installed on your computer. Look under your start menu and see if you have a suite of software from your PC manufacturer, including recovery software or system restore software.

Best of luck!

Can not install CD for my Mp3 player


You are probably signed on as a "guest" - every computer running windows XP or higher (Vista included) considers every user as a "guest" or an "administrator". Restart your computer, and sign in as an administrator. I don't know how computer saavy you are, but my real name is "Cor-y K-o-t-g-n" (I left out letters on purpose to protect my identity), so the login account that I created for myself when I upgraded to Windows XP was named Cor-y K-e-t-g-n- I also assigned it as an administrator account. My firends/family that use the computer are "guests" - if they log in to their particular names, they can use the computer, but they cannot install new software. I hope this helps a little.

Windows XP will not boot


Hi there, my name is Alex and Im here to help solve your problem.

It could be a number of problems.

1: Have you installed any new hardware or software? This can cause some conflictions. If there is any new hardware you have installed and your PC is constantly rebooting, then remove that hardware and try booting. If you have recently installed new software and getting the loop, then start windows in safe mode by pressing F8 before it boots windows. If you can access windows in safe mode, then uninstall any new software you may have added.

2: It could be you need a new power supply. They are very cheap to buy and I would recommend a qualified technician to install it for you

3: Your pc may be infected with a virus and has affected the boot file. Try to repair windows by using the windows xp disk. Insert the disk and run using the CD. You will then go through a few blue screens and press R to repair your windows xp installations

I hope this information has helped. Please let me know if you have any questions or further problems
