    Windows xp was pre-loaded on the SystemaxVenture HU2 B9301 BTO PC when I purchased about 3 years ago. The system crashed and I had to do a rebuild of Windows and used the cd that came with the PC. All drivers were installed except the sound drivers and PCI drivers. The system is unable to find the right ones from the cd?

    How to run the program Compatibility Wizard:

    1. Click on the START button then select CONTROL PANEL . Under control panel you then click onto PROGRAMS under Programs you will see this screen below you then select “Use an older program with this version of Windows”.

    2. You will then see this screen below. Click Next.

    3. Select “I want to use the program in the CD-ROM drive/I want to locate the program manually” and click Next.

    4. As a result of selecting to run the program from the CD-ROM drive/location you will see a message at which point you will have the option to choose your operating system. Select the “Microsoft Windows XP” option and click Next.

    5. You then will be prompted to select a display setting. Select “256 colors” and click Next.

    6. On the next screen, click Next unless your PC is controlled by an administrator. I.E. Your company owns the PC you are using. In which case you will need to consult with the company administrator.

How did you reload Windows XP? Did you use the recovery CD shipped with the computer from the manufacturer, or did you use a Windows XP CD?

If your computer had Windows XP preinstalled on it and you are not using the manufacturer's restore CD, you will have to go to the manufacturer's website and download drivers from there, if they are available.

Windows won't start


Hi,

When you put in the XP CD and it boots off the cd, the XP setup files copy across, and at the 1st screen, you should be able to choose Repair. Press r, and this will start the Recovery Console.

When you are in the recovery console, choose your Windows installation (You will see what I mean when you follow the instructions.)

When you are sitting at the command line(C:\>Windows), access your CDROM drive by typing the letter followed by a colon, eg "D:". It may also be E:, F:, or G:.

When you have changed to the CDROM drive, type the following:

cd\ <enter>
cd\i386 <enter>
expand pci.sy_ C:\pci.sys <enter>
C: <enter>
cd\ <enter>
copy pci.sys C:\windows\system32\drivers <enter>
If it asks to replace, confirm.

Then restart the computer.

Regards
Riztech

1. I reinstalled Windows XP from restoration CD, now icons and fonts are in large sizes and there is no sound.


Sounds like a driver problem. You will have been provided a CD with your computer, perhaps the same one you restored Windows XP from, with all of the drivers that were installed on your computer out of the box. If you install all of the drivers on there, the sound and display should revert to normal.
If you can't find the CD, you need to find out the model of your sound and video cards and download them from the manufacturers' websites.
