I am reinstalling winxp on a dell and have done so before with no problems. However this time my father had acquired spyware or something that was impossible to get rid of and when I finally did it removed some of the properties from the display panel and such. I opted to reinstall (of course) and have been having problems since. I am getting a stop error message. STOP:0x0000008E (0xc0000006, 0x8081A799, 0xF969c6B0,0X00000000) asc3550.sys - Address F969C6B0 base at F969C6B0, DATEStamp 00000000
I was receiving another one that read setupdd.sys ..... but it seems that i have fixed it, at least for now. If I could get some feed back It would be wonderful. Thx

there is some games you can't play in winxp sp2, like gta IV online. you have to reinstall or format your computer just to turn your operating system in winxp sp3, just to play this game. do'nt waste your time to format or reinstall your hard drive just follow this quick step
Step 1: Run Regedit by Clicking on Start -> Run , type in regedit and press enter Step 2: Make a backup of your registry (just in case) Step 3: Browse to "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetControlWindows" Step 4: Modify the value of "CSDVersion" from "0x00000200" (SP2) to the Windows XP SP3 value of "0x00000300" Step 5: Close registry editor Step 6: Reboot Step 7: Start GTA and freakin enjoy it already!
If you have WinXP and NERO v. 8, - then DONT upgrade yor system to SP3.
Your controlpanel disaper, and uninstall of the SP3 is impasible, but, - if you got this problem, do as follow:
"run" regedit, find and delete all nero 8 related issues, it takes about a milion years, but its the only way.
When this is done, and your controlpanel is reachable, delete SP3, and do all the updates for SP2 +.
Then reinstall NERO8 again, and you are back on track.
to install a WinXP component u need the instalable WinXP CD(not the cd that came with you PC or a rescue disk)
Switch on PC, let the machine boot WinXP, after u get the Desktop, insert the WinXP CD, after the CD rom loads WinXP from CD, in the opening menu select:
"Install optional Windows Components:
in the next menue, select Accessories and Utilities (Tick the Box)
Click Next and u r done....shut down and re-start...
all the best
Reinstall XP, fully update it, download the installers for the latest drivers from http://support.acer.com/us/en/drivers_download.aspx uninstall the ones you have, reboot and install the new ones. The absolute next thing you must do is to install the antivirus. When all that is done configure your pc starting with the display.

Hi, you have to use the original CD installer for WinXP that came bundled with your Compaq Presario. Reinstalling with the use of that CD will overwrite all previous installtion (from Dell) and should correctly install the drivers as well.
Should the CD be not available, you may want to try and call Microsoft Support and relay to them your problem. You may need copies of proof of purchase and other documents and/or the serial number for the WinXP normally printed on a sticker at the side, back (or underneath for a laptop) of the PC.
Another way is to purchase a CD installer of WinXP SP2 and go thru the routine of installing it.
Hiope this be of some help to you. Good luck.
