Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition

1 Answer

Windows Freezing Hi Darklord, Thanks for your last message. I have tried everyting you said - moved all pictures, added one from web and still the same problem. I also downloaded TuneUp Utilities 2008 Trial and ran all of the applications - Registry defrag / repair etc but the problem is still there. The three computers are all running Windows XP Pro (all updated fully and each with service pack 3 installed). Two of them are runnning Norton Internet Security and the other AVG. All have well over a gig of RAM and have decent processors. I have also tried downloading the Hive Cleanup Utility from Microsoft but still nothing. Because all three computers are owned by three seperate people and are all in seperate houses it makes me think it could be an update from Microsoft but I have no idea which one. Any more ideas would be much appreciated. Thanks Again, Dom

Some emails I send are not being recieved


There are lots of possibilities. Like you had an attachment to large for the receivers mailbox, or the receiver has a mailbox that is full. Most of the time after hours or a day you get a message the mail could not delivered.
Some mail delivery systems put your mail in the spam box of the receiver. If he /she never checks if everything in the spam box is spam, the never discover your mail. And perhaps there could be 100 other reasons.
Outlook was an old program and Microsoft wants you to replace it for the web based version with the same name. Perhaps that version is giving less problems? you also could try Gmail or Yahoo. Most mail is moving towards web based.

NEED SATA DRIVERS FOR LATATUDE D800 REINSTALLING XP PRO


This is the sign of either Faulty RAM or RAM with a Timing Issue. Quite often if more RAM has been added to a computer and it is not identical from the same Manufacturing Batch there can be Timing Issues that do not show a problem while the OS is working but prevent the installation of Windows Particularly.

The answer here is to either remove the added RAM till after you have reinstalled Windows or replace the faulty RAM if one has failed.

Error Message: PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA
Explanation:
This Stop message occurs when requested data is not found in memory. The system generates a fault, which normally indicates that the system looks for data in the paging file. In this circumstance, however, the missing data is identified as being located within an area of memory that cannot be paged out to disk. The system faults, but cannot find, the data and is unable to recover. Faulty hardware, a buggy system service, antivirus software, and a corrupted NTFS volume can all generate this type of error.
User Action:
This Stop message usually occurs after the installation of faulty hardware or in the event of failure of installed hardware (usually related to defective RAM, either main memory, L2 RAM cache, or video RAM). If hardware has been added to the system recently, remove it to see if the error recurs. If existing hardware has failed, remove or replace the faulty component. Run hardware diagnostics supplied by the system manufacturer. For details on these procedures, see the owners manual for your computer. Another cause of this Stop message is the installation of a buggy system service. Disable the service and determine if this resolves the error. If so, contact the manufacturer of the system service about a possible update. If the error occurs during system startup, restart your computer, and press F8 at the character-mode menu that displays the operating system choices. At the resulting Windows 2000 Advanced Options menu, choose the Last Known Good Configuration option. This option is most effective when only one driver or service is added at a time. Antivirus software can also trigger this Stop message. Disable the program and determine if this resolves the error. If it does, contact the manufacturer of the program about a possible update. A corrupted NTFS volume can also generate this Stop message. Run Chkdsk /f /r to detect and repair disk errors. Restart the system before the disk scan begins on a system partition. If the hard disk is SCSI, check for problems between the SCSI controller and the disk. Finally, check the System Log in Event Viewer for additional error messages that might help pinpoint the device or driver causing the error. Disabling memory caching of the BIOS might also resolve it. For more troubleshooting information about this Stop message, refer to the Microsoft Knowledge Base at http://support.microsoft.com/support.
