Question about PC Desktops

2 Answers

Software prerequisite I have Windows XP running on a P3. with half a gig of mem. Not the fastest machine in the world but reliable. I want to load MS Office Small Business Upgrade 2007 that you have featured in your brochure for $149.99 part number 8182619. The question is: Do I need to have ANY other applications loaded prior to loading the Office upgrade? You can reach me at: gtx1111@gmail.com or gtx1111@comcast.com or 828-733-1941 Thanks, Gabe V.

Office Small Business Upgrade 2007 will work on your PC but it can be a bit slow when starting office applications.
I suggest also upgrading the RAM to at leas one GIG the memory is not expensive and the computer general performance will improve considerably.
Office Small Business Upgrade requires a previous version of office installed. It is designed for those computers with Windows server 2003 or later and Windows XP SP2 and later, it will run fine if you install SP2.
You need to have a valid licensed copy of Office already installed. It will not work with Office 98. The package can be installed from Office 2000 onward.
Here is the full compatibility list from Microsoft website:
"The software will install only if you are a licensed user of one of the following products: • Microsoft® Works 6.0 or later • Microsoft Works Suite 2000-2006 or later • Any 2000-2007 Office program or suite • Any Office XP Suite, except Student and Teacher Edition"

I don't believe so. You might need an older version of office installed on your pc though.

A driver is corrupted and loads abnormally - this can be either one of a device or from a program that deals directly with the kernel : an antivirus, a backup.

Wont boot 2 windows xp home when 2 gig memory installed,works with 1 gig,tried both slots with both 1 gig sticks.Screen goes black.


Seems the memory is not comatable with the motherboard. Replace the old memory and visit http://www.crucial.com, they have a scanner tool which will confirm what mem can be installed.

Windows XP won't boot with "CREATIVE SOLUTIONS" PC


That machine is too underpowared to run xp pro.
Windows XP Media Center Edition
1.6 GHz CPU, 256MB Ram, and DirectX 9 hardware-accelerated GPU
you may get it to run but it is going to be dead slow. you will be waiting forever to load any apps with a processor under a gig, and less than 512 mhz of memory, it may work for emulation, but that's even questionable. I don't want to aggrvate you but that config is a decade old. Vista for instance needs at least 2 gigs of ram and a dualcore to run right. sorry bud, if you are dead set on it, the only thing you coula do is juice up the memory, to whatever the board is rated to take, or I would run windows 98, peace

Service pack3 crashed puter - after reinstall machine thinks extra hard drive is a disk drive.


You can get to the BIOS by hitting DEL or F2 at start up.

However, that does not have anything to do with a drive letter.

Drive letter designation is set in
START>SETTINGS>CONTROL PANEL>ADMINISTRATIVE TOOLS>COMPUTER MANAGEMENT>DISK MANAGEMENT.

Hope this helps.

Thank you for your help last time


256 mb of memory is not very much. It's the bare minimum you can get by with running Windows XP. Adding more would certainly be an improvement.
Only 1 gig of free space left on an 80 gig hard drive is not much room for Windows to work with. I would definitely try to get rid of or back up some files to make more room. You should also run a system clean up and do a defragmentation of the hard drive.

You should keep your anti virus software up to date if you have one installed. If not you can go HERE and run Trend Micro's Houscall on your PC. Viruses and Spyware will bog down a system and cause it to run extremely slow.

I have a compaq with a 90 gig hard drive, at presenr I am running 384 bytes of RAM. How much will this PC safely handle?


Depends! The amount of RAM has nothing to do with capacity of the hard drive. If your motherboard is a P3, it probably has to memory slots that will handle 256mb each (512 total). It sounds like you have a 128mm chip and a 256mb chip installed now. I won't even attempt to run XP with less than 256mb of RAM. You can run XP with 128mb, but not very well. With Windows XP SP2, you will have to have at least 256MB. Most P4 or newer computers use DDR RAM wich can be bought at larger capacity (ie 1000MB).
