If you installed XP over 2000, you don't need to uninstall 2000, but If you installed it parallel to 2000, and you have an option to run 2000, and XP when the computer boots, you cannot uninstall 2000 without wiping the Hard Drive and reinstalling from scratch.

If the version of XP that you installed is an upgrade, you will likely have to wipe the hard drive, then install 2000, then run the upgrade install of XP after, but choose to overwrite the 2000 install.

If this isn't the word Gujarati: ગુજરાતી, in Gujarati then your computer probably doesn't have a Gujarati Unicode font installed and you will have problems reading the Gujarati section of this site.
Following are instructions for getting Gujarati Unicode to display properly on various computer operating systems.
Microsoft Windows Microsoft Office 2000 and Microsoft Office XP If you have a copy of Microsoft Office 2000 or Microsoft Office XP, or Microsoft Publisher 2002, and Gujarati is not displaying properly then you should install the Arial Unicode MS font which is distributed by Microsoft with these products.
If you are unsure how to install Arial Unicode MS from CD then please consult the Microsoft Help and Support website - try searching for "Arial Unicode MS".
Windows 98, Windows ME, Windows NT 4.0 and Windows 2000 Windows 98, Windows ME, Windows NT 4.0 and Windows 2000 are not distributed with Arial Unicode MS so you will need to install an alternative Gujarati font.
You can download the following free, open source Gujarati fonts from the Indictrans Project:
Padmaa Medium, Padmaa Bold
Once you have downloaded the font file you can install using the font utility in the Control Panel, alternatively just copy the .ttf files into your \windows\fonts\ directory. There are more detailed instructions on our installing fonts page.

My computer stopped recognizing my hp psc1350 and it won't print


If this is not hardware problem then most probably the driver is corrupt.
First uninstall the printer completely using the procedure below (taken from HP website).

Uninstalling the software
Use the following steps to uninstall the software:

1.Disconnect the USB or parallel cable from the all-in-one.
2.Click Start , click Programs (click All Programs in Windows XP), click HP , select the all-in-one product folder, and then click Uninstall . Follow the directions that appear.
The basic device drivers have been removed after completing this step. If you were having problems with connectivity or the basic print or scan drivers, you may reconnect the all-in-one at this point to reinstall it. If the problem is not corrected or if you had other problems, continue to the next step.
3.Open the Windows Control Panel by following these steps:
* Windows 98, Me and 2000: Click Start , click Settings , and then click Control Panel .
* Windows XP: Click Start and then click Control Panel .
4.Click Add/Remove software (click Add or Remove Software in Windows XP).
5.In the list of installed programs, locate and select HP Photo and Imaging 3.0 or HP Image Zone , and then click Remove . Restart the computer after uninstalling if prompted.
