Sir, can I upgrade my 10 year old Evesham Axis 1800 to USB 2.0?


It might be best to upgrade your computer to something newer. You can even find something used on www.craigslist,org or www.ebay.com. I wouldnt put any money into a 10 year old computer. If you really want to upgrade to USB 2.0 - you'll most likely have software issues to overcome, too. Without knowing the full situation, it wouldnt be right to advise you to put money toward upgrading anything on your computer. Good luck.

My hp pavilion 513n has completely stopped working! I need help!


Start the computer, and keep pressing F8 until you get a "boot" menu -- white text on a black screen.
Select "safe mode with command-line", and see if Windows will start.
If it does, enter 'CHKDSK C: /F' to get Windows to check the integrity of the file-system.

Then, find a friend with a genuine Microsoft Windows XP CD-ROM. Boot from that disk, and choose "repair", and see if the boot-process can "repair" your installed copy.

Have corruption on display monitor which clears when computer has warmed up, running windows xp and have the latest legacy drivers & catalyst control center.


"legacy" means =old version, so the "latest legacy" wont work--try the latest driver from the graphic card manufacturers website

New graphic card for Evesham Axis 64 3200


Are you asking about upgrading your graphics card?
Aslong as you get a graphics card that is AGP connection you will be fine.
They dont make AGP graphics cards anymore, but one of the last ones made (and most powerful is the Nvidia 7950 AGP) can be found all over ebay.
Its not a cheap card though, and a later edition nvidia 6 card would be just as good for you, such as an Nvidia 6800 AGP graphics card

Evesham Axis RD A-List failed HD - can't boot from CD


Sounds like the hdd is failing. Do you have a restore disk or OS disk? Or was there a restore partition on the failing hdd? Either way, it looks like your going to need a new hdd and at least a restore or OS disk. Not real familiar with the Evesham Axis.

I cannot get my Evesham PC to boot up in anything other than "safe mode"...


Yours windows installation is corrupt. If u know how to install windows u can rectify the problem with the repair option. If u don't know call a technician.

To repair please do the following:

Go to bios setup and select cd/dvd as the first bootable device.

Put the Windows CD in the drive and save settings and exit.

Installation process will start copying files to hard disk and after sometime computer will restart. Here DON'T PRESS 'R" for repair; but continue. Continue till you get to the Terms and Agreement where u have to press F8. The screen that comes after this will have an option to "Repair". Select this option. Some more files will be copied to the hard disk. When asked for restart remove Windows CD and start computer. Your windows will be repaired with all the data and programmes intact.
