    didn't help any. I have already done that. It would be great if microsoft had a troubleshooting guide that would scan your computer and see what it needs.

Windows update site or downloads page

    the update is called .NET Framework 2.0 --- maybe you need to install the previous update to get that one -- called .NET Framework 1 SP1. when you view system properties, what service pack are you using?

    service pack 3 would contain the .NET Framework download you need. to download it just click on the link on the update site and save it to your HD. double-click the file once downloaded to install it.

I don't think it's corrupt bios, maybe a virus or malware.
But if you can go to the computers maker website and download bios and install them the way they tell you to install them.

Compaq Evo W6000 will not boot

Old DT PC. Compaq. what OS? why not ask at
SCSI sets up SCSI devices, HDD or TAPE.
it was used mostly on servers.
old desktop,
running what, OS2 (ibm) or running windows.?
if windows ,windows what, you never stated the OS that ran.
it has XP 32 or XP 64 as a 2 and 3rd options
or did you wisely upgrade it? we cant guess any of these facts

my guess is the boot files are messed up or the HDD is dead.
looks to me like 2002 PC full sized desktop (as old as)
it does have SCSI (and
and has this warning on the HP support page for it.
Workstations Fix for "FBISM - ******* Operation" on Restore to SCSI Drives
update this is. sp22541.exe (0.6 MB)
  1. BIOS setup wrong, not booting the correct device (control+A)
  2. HDD startup files missing or corrupted.
  3. HDD bad. (run tests on it?)
if the HDD is ok , reload unstated OS.

this thing ran for 15 years and now only died? today?
it has ,
Ultra160 SCSI (1 (68-pin internal)) with windows 2000 on the first ones.
read page 46
if the scsi Hdd is still the boot drive
then then the ATA drive must be set to last. per page 46 in bios
once the Ultra 160 is the boot device, it too must now
be setup right to boot the correct SCSI drive, (lots of books cover
that great chip, from "Adaptec"

hp usually deletes all files this old but not here,
you are lucky some remain, now.

USB Mouse works, keyboard does not

You will need to update the drivers on the computer for the docking station. It will be the windows seven drivers or lack of them that is causing a failure to remap the usb ports that the wireless dongle is plugged into.

have you tried to boot into safe mode by tapping f8 @ start up? if you can boot into safe mode, i recommend going here: and downloading the norton uninstaller and running it in safe mode with networking. that should clear up any drivers or files that were not removed when the uninstaller ran. then go to and download ccleaner and run that in safe mode.

How do I change the boot order on Windows XP? I

When booting, watch the screen. You'll see a message stating
"Press F2 for boot or DEL/F10 for set up"

If you choose F2, you'll update to boot priority for just the once, so if you want a permanent change, go for the set up option.

You will go into to bios, blue screen back ground. Read the instructions carefully, only change the things you know. You may have to go through a couple of screens until you find the boot order options.

Once changed press F10 to save and exit, the boot will then continue.
