    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.

My Computer will turn on and go to the windows XP loading screen with the blue bars and will won't load up, it rarely does but when it gets to the log on user screen it freezes

Right after your POST screen goes off,before you get to Windows starting,try pushing the F8 key several times until you get the Windows boot options.Then try 'last known good configuration".
If that doesn't work,you can boot from the Windows installation disk and try to repair your Windows installation.Let me know what happens.
And good or bad, please rate my post?

Windows xp boots but the desktop will not come up

Log in using SAFE MODE. While laptop boots, press F8 and it will prompt for which mode to login. Select 'SAFE MODE'. Once logged in try to restore the OS to a previous good restore point.
If you've a backup of the registry key, it will help better. Just restore the registry from the backup instead of going for an old restore point.
Please come back and rate my solution if this turns to be helpful for you or also if you need more clarification. Thnx

Can you tell me when the network driver in Windows gets loaded. I read some where that it does not get loaded until you get to screen in XP Pro. Is this true?

The network drivers do not load until you boot to Windows. I'm not sure what you mean by the XP Pro Screen but you have to be at the desktop level to have them load.

A good way to test when they've loaded is to go to your network connections after you're fully booted and right click on your connection. Choose properties. Check the box that says: Show icon in notification area when connected.

Two little computers should then appear in the right side of the system tray by the clock.

When you reboot, those will not appear again until the drivers have loaded.

Hi, I got a free HP compaq desktop, the small ones, is 2.66hz it was working fine, but i don't have the password for the administrator in a xp pro, so I just reinstall a new copy of XP but now this...

please load xp again and press f 6 when you see it on the screen to load sata devices .
sata softwares and drivers are required in certain computers to load windows so while loading you will be asked to load those drivers through a floppydrive, so u must have
1)sata raid drivers (according to the hard ware installed in hp.)this piece of hard ware will not allow xp to boot if you dont give its drivers through a floppy drive(during installation and setup of windows.
so u must now have
1 floppy drive(usb)
2 a floppy disk with sata drivers
3)usb port to attach the usb floppy drive
after loading xp you will see xp running trouble free.
a easy solution is to load vists and the drivers are already there in vista cd.

Microsoft doesn't seem to have any information on XP having this error. But here's the general consensus after a little investigation:

1. Boot into safe mode by pressing the F8 key repetitively right after you turn on your PC until you see the safe mode screen.
2. Click Start >> Run. A Run window will appear.
3. Type "services.msc" in the Open field and then click OK. A "Services" window will open.
4. Find "Indexing Service" and double click on it. A "Indexing Service Properties" window will open.
5. Find the "Startup type" dropdown menu and select "Disabled", click "OK", and close the "Services" window.
6. Double click "My Computer" on your desktop. If it isn't there, then go to Start >> My Computer.
7. Find your hard drive, usually labeled "Local Disk (C:)", right-click on it and select "Properties". A dialog box will open.
8. Select the "Tools" tab.
9. In the upper third of the dialog box you'll see an area zoned "Error-checking". Click the button "Check Now". A new dialog box will open.
10. Check off the boxes "Automatically fix file system errors" and "Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors", then click "Start". You may be prompted to restart the computer. If this is the case, go ahead and restart.

Windows will check the hard drive for errors and run a surface scan. This may take a while depending on how big your hard drive is. Once it is finished, you'll arrive at your normal login screen. If Windows went ahead and ran the scan in safe mode without requiring a reboot then, once it is finished, go ahead and reboot the computer. Once at the login screen, go ahead and login. You shouldn't have the error any longer. If you do, be sure to report back here with details. The less details you provide, the less I can help.

Windows XP DPI changed to HUGE, cannot navigate at all

1. Reboot Your PC
2. Before Windows XP loading screen appears - repeatedly press F8 - this will activate the boot menu
3. Choose Safe Mode (only Safe Mode - not one of the other options)
4. Wait for Windows to finish loading
5. Right click on the desktop and choose Properties
6. Alter the DPI back to what you require.
7. Choose Start Menu - Restart
8. Now when Windows reloads everything should be back to normal.
