Uninstall sp3,
take hdd to another machine,
recover the files and programes you want to save,
back them up on disk,ie,external drive or dvd data stores 4.7b gb per disk,
format start again and only load xp sp2.
Xp sp3 has bug fixes apparantly,lol
why fix some thing if its not broken I say.

Windows xp installion does not see my hard drive on Panasonic CF-74


Just a thought but are you using XP Pro SP2 or SP3?

In my experience, only XP Service Pack 3 will see your
Hard Disk Drive, not XP Service Pack 2.

Good Luck!

Aspire 1640z windows xp can I load sp 3 or is sp 2 the limit for this PC


You should be able to get XP 32-bit SP3 added. However, Windows Update will not work with XP SP2. Thus you will need to manually download the update and then install it. This is the link to the update: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=24 . Click on the Download button. This is the version usually used for computers that aren't on a network.

I hope this helps.

(the Acer 1640z came with XP SP2; most computer companies support all of the service packs for their originally installed OS.)

Hi, i have a thinkpad 600e with corrupted os (missing ntldr for sp2). i tried repairing with cd but cd wont boot (cd is bootable though). it keeps restarting. my boot sequence is already set to cd first....


Try to reinstall only the service pack.
What OS are you using?
visit Microsoft's downloads center and download service pack 2 for your OS i.e, Windows XP or Windows 7, then reinstall.
That should fix the problem

Thank you for using Fixya,

Service pack 2 will not install


Service Pack 2? In Windows XP? That's been out for a number of years.
Scan for viruses, scan for malware, do checkdisk an defrag. Then download and install SP 3. Don't worry about SP2.
If you have Vista, follow the same procedure and then install SP2

I rebooted my operating system windows xp-sp2.now in my leptop the com port is not showing.instead of this only bluetooth port is detecting .how i will solve this problem??


I would suggest that you run diagnostics on your pc to isolate the issue and identify if it is caused by a hardware failure or caused by a software glitch on the system.

You can also try to repair the OS if the problem lies within the platform itself.

Please follow instructions indicated herein....

XP REPAIR INSTALL

1. Boot the computer using the XP CD. You may need to change the
boot order in the system BIOS. Check your system documentation
for steps to access the BIOS and change the boot order.

2. When you see the "Welcome To Setup" screen, you will see the
options below This portion of the Setup program prepares Microsoft
Windows XP to run on your computer:

To setup Windows XP now, press ENTER.

To repair a Windows XP installation using Recovery Console, press R.

To quit Setup without installing Windows XP, press F3.

3. Press Enter to start the Windows Setup.
do not choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the
Recovery Console, press R", (you do not want to load Recovery
Console). I repeat, do not choose "To repair a Windows XP
installation using the Recovery Console, press R".
4. Accept the License Agreement and Windows will search for existing
Windows installations.
5. Select the XP installation you want to repair from the list and
press R to start the repair. If Repair is not one of the options,
read Warning #2 below!!
6. Setup will copy the necessary files to the hard drive and reboot.
Do not press any key to boot from CD when the message appears.
Setup will continue as if it were doing a clean install, but your
applications and settings will remain intact.

Blaster worm warning: Do not immediately activate over the internet
when asked, enable the XP firewall
[ http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=283673 ]
before connecting to the internet. You can activate after the
firewall is enabled. Control Panel - Network Connections. Right click
the connection you use, Properties, and there is a check box on the
Advanced [ http://michaelstevenstech.com/xpfirewall1.jpg ] page.

7. Reapply updates or service packs applied since initial Windows XP
installation. Please note that a Repair Install using an Original
pre service pack 1 or 2 XP CD used as the install media will remove
SP1/SP2 respectively and service packs plus updates isssued after the
service packs will need to be reapplied.

Service Pack 2 link. Copy and paste link into your browser.

Continuous loop and cannot charge battery


Windows service pack 2 is a huge update and takes a long time to complete, I will suggest walking away from your computer and having lunch, go to sleep, watch a movie, etc... while the update finishes. If you have already done this with the same result? I would look for a Windows XP SP2 disk (XP with service pack 2 integrated) and try that. Otherwise Microsoft sent out many disks containing the SP2 update itself on a disk, and you could try the SP2 update from one of those (if you can find one) after your clean install.
Good luck.
