1. What the motherboard you had been using
2. Whats the HDD

Check that your motherboard supports the higher HDD
Upto 80GB HDD Windows can load the XP with servicepack 1
But after 80GB HDD supports the WIN XP with service pack 2 CD only.  Try to install with the winxp having above sp1.

    Which can games aren't loading up? If you were able to play them before, then you just need to restart your computer. It should work after restarting it.

    What is an ArcCon ac application error0xc00000006?

    What you describe falls under the general category of svchost.exe issues. Svchost.exe is used by your computer to access the registry and check the services to load during system startup. is an ArcSoft Connect Notifier. There are two possibilities why its happening:
    1. Microsoft releases regular security updates that are installed automatically on your computer by the Automatic Updates feature, which is enabled by default on your computer. The Svchost.exe Application error usually appears due to a problem with a recent update.
    Closing the error message might freeze your computer. To fix this error, perform the following tasks.
    1. Open Control Panel, select Performance and Maintenance, and then select Services.
    2. In the System Properties dialog box, open the Automatic Updates tab.
    3. Next, select the Turn Off Automatic Updates option.
    4. Select Apply and then OK to accept your changes and exit the System Properties dialog box.
    5. Restart your PC.
    6. Ensure that you are connected to the Internet and then select the Windows Update command from Start > All Programs to manually update Windows.
    7. After the update is complete, enable the automatic updates again from System Properties > Automatic Updates.
    This should rectify your application error. However, if the error keeps reappearing, then you might turn off automatic updates permanently and manually perform Windows updates at regular intervals.

    Let's hope that this isn't the case. Lengthy procedure but if you are still having trouble, we'll cross that bridge when we get to it.

    The computer will not boot up. It says it is


    This is a common Vista patch issue that others are having. From the Microsoft web site, you will need to do the following:

    - Used the reset button to restart.
    - Prompted me about not being shutdown properly. (if it didn't I would just use F8)
    - Choose Safe Mode with Command Prompt.
    - Changed directory to just c:\windows
    - Ran a rename of this directory: c:\windows\SoftwareDistribution to c:\windows\SoftwareDistribution.old
    (ren c:\windows\SoftwareDistribution c:\windows\SoftwareDistribution.old)
    - Rebooted.

    This will get you past the failed update and allow your laptop to boot up correctly.

    Windows XP home edition service pack 3

    OK, do you wish to install further updates? if you dont, then what you can do is disable automatic updates

    To do this, then right click on the desktop the icon My pc and select properties. The sub menu Automatic Updates you will find on the top, click that and check the box disable automatic updates

    Some Automatic updates are dangerous and can cause your computer to stop working correctly. I would recommend you disable them. Once this is disabled, restart your computer and the access denied messages will disappear. This is because its most likely you have automatic updates set to download and install automatically. But once you disable this, problem should be solved.

    If you have any more questions, please let me know
