Its a software loader tool. The guy who built this e-machine didn't do his job here are removal instructions.
1. Right-click on the "My Computer" icon on your desktop and choose "Manage". Go to "Services and Applications" then "Services" Right-click on the PrismXL service and choose "stop". (FOR THE NOVICE: This step turns off PrismXL so that you can remove it from your computer)
2. Next, browse to C:\Program Files\Common Files\New Boundary OR C:\Program Files\Common Files\Lanovation, then delete the New Boundary or Lanovation folder. (FOR THE NOVICE: This step will delete the program files PrismXL uses to execute)
3. From Start/Run, type "regedit". Go to HKey_Local_Machine\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\PrismXL. Delete the PrismXL key. (FOR THE NOVICE: This step removes the entries in the System Registry that contain the settings for PrismXL)
4. If you have a shortcut in Start Menu\Programs\Startup called "Install Pending Files" delete the shortcut. (FOR THE NOVICE: This step removes an instruction to run the PrismXL install program every time your computer boots up)
5. If you have the folder C:\Program Files\SIFXINST, delete the SIFXINST folder. (FOR THE NOVICE: This step removes the folder that contains the PrismXL install files. It may or may not be on your computer)

The service is now fully removed.
After a reboot, it will no longer be listed in Services and it will be gone forever.

My HP Pavilion A1210n doesn't power up anymore after I upgraded the memory. It doesn't start when I press the power button on the bottom front.


Looks like the memory is not supported by your computer or the memory is not working. Switch back to original memory works? Sometimes your computer only support a certain amount of memory by each slot. Smaller memory may work. Use only one memory at a time and see whether that works. Basically you might need to contact the memory manufacture and see whether their memory are supported by your computer for your specific make and model. Sometimes they use incompatible technologies which cause the issue. Basically the memory manufacture will know which computer it does not work with although the main category of memory looks OK. I checked your model of computer with the link below. Make sure you get PC3200 DDR SDRAM, not the common DDR DRAM. And according to the operating system a certain amount of memory should be installed for your operating system to start.
Specification link of your computer:

Video Drivers


The file “Windows/System/Drivers/mup.sys” is not actually causing the problem. It’s the next step after mup.sys that’s causing the computer to hang. That next step consists of the OS checking the registry files for plug and play devices.
Some causes are: new or defective hardware installed, corrupted registry, (caused by virus), defective or corrupted hard drive, just to name a few.
Try removing all devices attached to the computer like printer, web cam, flash drives, etc.
If your computer has a PCI or AGP graphics card AND your motherbrd has a VGA connector, remove the video card and use the one on the motherbrd.
If the above doesn’t work, try running “CHKDSK /P” from the Windows recovery console.

I originally purchased a Compaq Presario Pc and received a Disc for the game Recoil which I was able to play successfully, my computer came with Windows 98 installed on it. I then purchased Windows XL...


You game's software is not compatible with XP, it was designed for 98. That is what your saying correct, you installed Windows XP not XL?

Certain Sites hang and don't load to browser on one computer but does on another


Now many web sites use flash player for their add content as well as for the menu content. if you have not installed flash player these sites will just show loading but will not load. more over what happens is the site will check whether your sys has the app installed atherwise it will prompt you to install with an yellow information bar. Once you install this the site loads as usual. The problem is when you have a slow internet connection the site is not able to check your sys for prompting you to install the required app. thus the site hangs. Check if you have installed adobe flash player activex 9 player.
