Question about HP Compaq Business d530 Small Form Factor PC Desktop

Seeing Red! Hi Guys, I use Windows XP Home Version 2002 I experience visual interference on certain sites ie: Hostgator & Linkshare.com (where I cannot see the products, except strangely for American Express?). They are just small solid red rectangles. The problem is one of solid Red blocks or panels blanking out certain page information. No virus or other invader is being picked up. Any ideas guys? Kindest regards Aled

    Don't bust a gut fella but your effort(s)/ suggestions are very much appreciated;-)

Open Control Panel and select "Display". Check on the "settings" tab what colour settings you have on for your monitor. Try putting this up to the highest quality and see if you get a change. try the others if not. Do you have your windows XP fully updated to Service Pack 2 and all the latest auxiliary updates? If not, do that (go to windows update from control panel). Are you using microsoft internet explorer as your browser? if so, and especially if the problem is a recent one, update internet explorer (latest version is 7.0.5730.11). to check this, open IE and select the help menu, select "about Internet Explorer" and it will tell you the version you are running. If none of the above helps, then open IE and select the tools menu, and select "internet options". Select the "advanced" tab. Check that "enable visual styles on buttons and controls in webpages" is on. check the section "multimedia" write down what you currently have (in case you need to change back), then change them all to on. Restart your computer after trying each thing. Hope this helps, please ask again if no joy

    Ps also check in internet options (the "content" tab) that you have no parental controls turned on - I don't think this could cause the problem you describe, but worth a try if nothing else works.

Need password for Microsoft 10

You shouldn't need any password for Windows 10. If you are getting that you have downloaded the wrong version. If you are a Windows 7 user make certain you are only downloading the version of 10 that matches the Windows 7 you currently have. So if you have Windows 7 Home download Windows 10 Home. If you try and download any other type IE Professional - then you will get asked for a password. Which you will have to pay for from Microsoft.
Windows XP is not compatible with Windows 10. If you are using a computer that uses Windows XP and you can't upgrade your computer to Windows 7 or 8, then you will NOT be able to run Windows 10 on it.

I just installed windows xp service pack 3 version 2002 but after installing the operating system it says activate windows.It gave me 30 days.It's more like a trial version.I need help guys.

Windows operating systems require a valid product key in order for them to work. You would have to purchase WinXP in order to get a product key. Unfortunately, WinXP is in its last days of its product lifecycle and will not be supported. You'd be much better off trying to install Win7.

I need to reinstall windows xp home edition i have the product code but no disk

I have used full install/ disk from other brands of computers (or other dell model numbers)to reinstall operation system (must be winxphome, dont worry about service pack, you can update). If you use any dell reinstallation cd, most likely you will not have to enter your key. If you use any other computer brand, or borrow someones xphome full install disk (not upgrade), then you will need to enter your key. Only problem of using for example emachine full install disk is that is will have emachine themes. Also you will likely need to down load other drivers. You are not lemited to to using reinstall cd for your model number. Good luck

Microsoft windows xp pro sp3 product key

Hi try this ONE!!
hope helps you a lot tNX!!

Windows XP Pro Corporate Service Pack 3 Keys;


Windows XP Pro Corporate Service Pack 2 Keys;


Cd key of windows xp professional service pack 2

Get the product key from the back of your CD case, or on the back of your computer.


Windows xp sevice pack 2 product key

The Service Pack alone does not have a product key as such. It is an update for those that are running Genuine Microsoft XP.

If you mean Windows XP with Service Pack 2, then you need to purchase it from a reputable source such as Microsoft or a Microsoft authorised Vendor.

Windows xp home edition service pack 2

Legally, well purchase the software. But if you do that I wouldn't buy Xp Home Edition I would go with XP Pro.

On the other end of things check piratebay.com or other torrent sites. You may be able to find just the product key or a version where you do not need one or that comes cracked.

Hope that helps.
