I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: pavilion dv4000 max RAM that can be installed and HDD upgra...

Here is the Service Manual: Manual It uses DDR333 aka PC2700 SO-DIMM maximum 2 gigs. This memory should work for you: http://www.ebay.com/itm/2X-1GB-DDR-PC2700-2GB-333-PC-2700-SODIMM-LAPTOP-MEMORY-/370498461245?pt=US_M... For the replacement procedure, see page 5-15. The hard drive is shown at Page 5-7. The hard drive type is EIDE aka PATA. This is "legacy" (obsolete) hardware and larger sized PATA drives are getting hard to find. There is no size constraint imposed by the BIOS or hardware, but the market may not supply you with anything bigger than about 320 gigs and it is going to be expensive to find a new one. The biggest I ever saw was a 500 gig but I have not seen one of those in years. You want to try to find a 5400 rpm or 7200 rpm model although 7200s are extermely hard to locate. 4200 rpm models are just too slow to use. Here is a 320 gig on eBay for about $100: http://www.ebay.com/itm/WD-Western-Digital-320GB-2-5-IDE-Hard-Drive-HDD-PATA-Notebook-laptop-5400-rp...

I have a friends HP Pavilion DV laptop it has been dropped but there is no external physical damage but it has stopped charging in the normal way When I was given the laptop it was completely dead it had in Charging/vga Dv4000 Pavilion Hp fact run the battery completely flat a Hp Pavilion Dv4000 Charging/vga fact that not forthcoming until I had stripped it Hp Pavilion Dv4000 Charging/vga down looking for any signs of obvious damage or Hp Pavilion Dv4000 Charging/vga broken connections etc which I didn t find I purchased another DV off Ebay with a damaged screen having used the hardrive from the original and connected to an external monitor everything worked fine including the charging the battery now back to The original laptop screen was reattached and all was fine picture perfect everything running as it should almost The problem I have is that the AC adapter will only charge and run the laptop when an external monitor is connected to the VGA socket disconnect and it reverts back to battery only considering the screen and inverter are the only components used from the original I assumed that there may be a problem with the inverter I found another screen assembly and replaced that and the problem is still there I now have Two DV laptop s which I assume have the same fault the hardrive amp AC adapter are the only two components that are shared both work very well apart from the need to connect them to an external monitor through the VGA socket in order to get them to run and charge the battery HP help desk suggested downloading the latest Bios F which I but didn t resolve the problem it has been suggested that the power socket could need repairing but it doesn t affected either unit by moving the AC plug at all In a nut shell plug an external monitor into the VGA socket and the AC power and charging is as it should be the monitor doesn t need to be powered either As an enthusiastic amateur and some what out of my depth I feel its time to get some of you experts onboard any suggestions welcome if kept clean A thankyou to Colin from www truestate com hprepair for his useful and friendly help Many thanks Bob nbsp

A:Hp Pavilion Dv4000 Charging/vga

update.
It appears after that connecting the monitor via the VGA socket is providing an Earth enabling charging to operate, the AC adapter socket has been tested OK.
It has been suggested that a chip on the VGA circuit board may have failed causing the previous strange behavior.

I have been have problems with my DV4000 charging, it would charge only if I connected a external monitor to it, it was using that circuit as it earth source, you only had to connect it with no power.
It turned out to be the AC adpter socket, there is a tiny micro switch inside the socket which is opened when the adpter is plugged in, in my case the switch was damaged and wasn't switching as it is surposed to.
The laptop was taken apart and the socket unsoldered and replaced with a new one, approx 15.
hope this is useful to you all, thanks also to Colin from : http://www.truestate.com/hprepair/ a really helpful genuine Guy.

A:Charging HP Pavilion DV4000

This is a very common problem with laptops in general. People first suspect and replace the AC adapter, then find out that the DC jack (in the US) is bad. Some of the DC jacks are on a separate cable, and some DC jacks are soldered onto the motherboards. I have a Toshiba Satellite with a soldered DC jack. This jack cost $42. The laptop has to be completely disassembled

I have a HP Pavilion DV4000 that is not powering on. The A/C connection seems to be loose and not fitting in tightly like it usually does. I also do not see the blue light where the connection goes into the computer. Would this be caused by the charging port not connecting with the Power supply on the motherboard. Could the motherboard have failed? What should I do to find out what the issue is and how to go about fixing this problem. Thanks for any suggestions.

My friend bought a used laptop last year that has been running very slow. She asked me to fix it and I found out she's running Windows 7 on an old HP pavilion dv4250us with only 512 MB of ram. Obviously it needs more memory to run Windows 7 smoothly. I'm not sure if it's worth trying to find memory for this old laptop or going back to Windows XP. She can't afford anything too expensive (otherwise she'd just get a new laptop).

I found this: http://www.memorystock.com/memory/He...ndv4250us.html
which looks pretty reasonable. I'm guessing 2 1 GB sticks will do the trick.

I'm not really sure how to change the memory in this laptop, but I managed to snap a picture of the memory after I opened it up and was hoping one of you guys can give me some tips and let me know if it's worth the effort.

A:Can Windows 7 Pro be installed onto a Pavilion PC 23-q227c?

Sandman-MB Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!Your PC came preinstalled with Windows 10. If you remove or overwrite the original Win10 on your PC with Win 7, you are going to encounter serious problems as there are no HP Win7 drivers for the new hardware that comes with new machines.  MS supplies drivers that provide only basic functionality.  This means that some of the hardware functionality is likely NOT to work if you force a downgrade.  That includes functions like the touchpad, WiFi, swtichable graphics, USB ports -- to name the functions commonly reported here.If you want full functionality for the machine, you need to retain its original preinstalled OS version. Sorry, but if what you needed was a Win7 PC, then you should have bought a Win7 PC.Good Luck========================================================================I am a volunteer and I do not work for, nor do I represent, HP.---------------------------------------------------------------If my posts helped you, please click the Thumbs-Up symbol on the left of the Reply button to say thanks.If my posts solved your problem please click "Accept As Solution" -- to help others find the solution.========================================================================

A:Slow Pavilion, test shows DST Not installed

It sounds like you might have a failing hard drive.  Try updating the system BIOS and then perform a hard reset and try running the test again by pressing F2.   To Perform A Hard Reset Shut down the computer by going to the Start menu and selecting shut down. (If you have no display, hold the power button down for  5 seconds); (if the computer doesn't power on, move to the next step)Disconnect the AC Adapter from the notebook.Remove the battery from the bottom of the notebook.  There will be a switch/button to eject the battery.Wait at least 1 minute with all power sources disconnected.Re-insert the battery and reconnect the AC Adapter and then attempt to power on the notebook.

Hi,
I turned on my computer a couple of days ago and I found that my volume wasn't working. Instead, there was a red x next ot my speker on my taskbar, and when I moused over it it said, "No Audio Output Deivce is installed". I went over to device manager and checked under "Sound, Video, and Game Controllers" and my audio driver was completely missing! No yellow question mark next to it, nothing at all. So I go to the HP website to download the driver and I can't install it, instead I get this error message saying "Driver Installation Failed: Could not find the device for this driver." I've emailed HP support about this and although they were trying to be helpful, I got nowhere with them. I even tried a full system restore, and the problem still persists. Help, I'm stumped!

"not even the power cord shows"... What does this mean? No light on the AC adapter or on the laptop when you plug the AC adapter into the laptop?

Im having lots of issues with Windows 8.1 so I have to reinstall. Store/Settings arent opening. 5 minutes or so of a black screen and cursor on Start up.

I attempted to go here: Upgrade Windows with only a product key - Microsoft Windows Help

and use that for reinstalling, but it isnt excepting my product key.

How can I reinstall Windows 8.1? Am I really going to have to re-install Windows 8 from scratch and then Update again to Win 8.1?!

Hello, my HP laptop stops responding, while playing a game or just general browsing, it would freeze. This has been going on since I got it from a friend. Its about as irritating as the COM surrogate error. I've tried many times trying to find the problem. One day while looking at mail, it froze again, so I got a little annoyed and tapped it, and it decided to respond. Now everytime it freezes I have to hit it like a 30 year old tube tv to get it to respond. I would like to know if there is a permanent fix for this masochist laptop.

-thank you for putting up with my bichin-

I'm considering the Ideapad 510 15" (Part Number 80SR0055CF).  i5-6200U, 4GB onboard RAM, 1TB 5400RPM hard drive.
 
Can I upgrade the RAM myself? I see some 510 models have 4GB onboard + a 4GB DIMM so I'm assuming that if I get the 4GB onboard they'll be an empty DIMM slot I could add RAM to, is that the case?  If so, what's the max memory I could add?
 
What about the hard drive, can it be upgraded/replaced?  At some point I would probably want to put in an SSD.
 
If someone could link to the hardware maintenance manual that would be really useful, then I could check these things myself.  I can't find the manual for this particular laptop.  Thank you!

Try reseating the hard drive and the memory... You might have broken the DC jack (where the AC adapter plugs into the laptop) Dropping a laptop on anything is never good!

Hello. First let me tell you about my machine:
    HP  G62x-400 CTO Notebook
    Model # LD642AV
   [personal information removed]
    Windows 7 home premium
 
I attempted to upgrade ton Windows 10. At the very end of the process, I got an error message saying that the upgrade failed. I thought -- so I am back to Windows 7 and that is OK. But now, I receive frequent error messages telling me that various "entry points" can not be found on DLL files that I believe are in Windows 10 ONLY. How do I get rid of the problem?
 
Thank you for your help.

A:G62 notebook - recovering from unsuccessful attempt to upgra...

Craig3428 Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!Wish I had good news for you, but I don't. While Microsoft tells you that there is no risk in the Win10 Upgrade, because they let you believe that you can always revert back to your original OS and setup within 30 days, the ugly fact of the matter is that the Win10 GoBack function has proven to be unreliable -- and when it fails, it can leave machines in a corrupted state -- which doesn't always happen, but it does happen often enough to be a problem and you won't get any warning in advance that it is going to trash your PC!So, while you DO have Win7 back, most likely, something got corrupted in the process. To further complicate matters, while I would recommend using HP Recovery Media to restore your PC to its original condition. That would erase the entire drive, format the drive, and install the OS, the drivers, and the HP utilities.Unfortunately, there is no HP Recovery Media linked to the HP Product Page for your PC. This could be an oversight by HP, or it could also mean that HP no longer stocks the recovery media for your PC. They no long stock recovery media for the older PCs.Since HP no longer provides Recovery Media for your model, a couple of other sites you should check are: http://www.computersurgeons.com/ and http://www.restoredisks.com/Understand that the first thing Recovery Media does is reformat the hard drive -- erasing everything from the drive. So, BEFORE you attempt this, you need to save off all the files and data you want to retain.Good Luck

HP Pavilion dv series DV EA to be exact where my CPU seems to be seriously overheating while playing games that Can't access fan controll on HP DV4000 series notebook. don t really require that much processor speed Now i noticed that my current cpu-fan works quite at a slow RPM rate and i d like to speed it up as this i think would definitely solve the overheating problem The problem is that i tried various software programs like FanSpeed NHC and the like and NONE of them can detect my fans because both tell me that my ACPI is not configured They can detect the temperatures and stuff like that but can t access or detect fans My idle CPU temperature is anywhere from - C and when playing games it rises rapidly up to - C where my FSB automatically drops by half thus slowing down performance and drastically reduces playability of the game Or sometimes the computer just plainly reboots Now the ONLY reason i can think of why my ACPI is not configured is because i changed the default BIOS that came with the system with the new and supposedly supported PhoenixBIOS version Now when i go and check BIOS there is absolutely NOTHING i can change The only interactable things in bios are checking temperature doing quick scans of my HDD and turning bluetooth USB on off that s it So should i restore my previous if rather old year bios and see if that helps or is there some other solution to controlling my CPU speed My current bios is Phoenix Version F where it says that ACPI is supported and enabled Also one other thing i used NHC to reduce my cpu voltage by like and it runs smooth as hell But it STILL hasn t reduced my overheating problem not by a longshot Just reduced a few degrees As a sidenote I m used to running Quake and stuff on this PC on maximum graphics with no problem now it seems it s overheating Maybe it s getting crummy and dusty inside but the warranty is in effect and i don t wanna disassemble and clean it since i m not that good with notebook hardware Here are my computer specs if anyone s interested and if they ll help some info might be irrelevant Vendor Hewlett-Packard Name Pavilion dv ES EA UUG Motherboard Chipset Intel Alviso i PM System Memory MB DDR - DDR SDRAM Memory Timings - - - CL-RCD-RP-RAS is that bad can it be more effective Processor Mobile Intel Pentium M J MHz x x Family Model Stepping External clock Hmz Voltage V Legacy Mode Yes Video Adapter ATI MOBILITY RADEON X Omega MB Audio Adapter Intel FBM ICH -M - AC Audio Controller B- Disk Drive FUJITSU MHV AT PL GB RPM Ultra-ATA Optical Drive TSSTcorp CD DVDW TS-L M DVD R x DVD RW x x DVD-RW x x DVD-ROM x CD x x x DVD RW DVD-RW Network Adapter Realtek RTL x Family Fast Ethernet NIC Oh and my CPU Alias says for some reason quot Dothan quot but it s not it s something starting with S forgot The solution i m looking for is someone suggesting some other fan speed controll software that might work for HP or something HP-specific or some other solutions of controlling fan speed and generally reducing heat I don t care about the sound the fan will make as long as it will work FAST and COOL Or any helpful solution that might help my HP notebook to generally increase performance and reduce heat Well that about sums up the gist of my problem In short i want to make the fans go FASTER Hope someone will take the time to read through and try to help me and thank you in advance for your valuable time nbsp

Hi motlotlegi Try reinstalling the driver - go to device manager, right click & select uninstall. Restart the laptop & Windows will reinstall it. Hopefully it should now work. If not then check Acer's support for your region to see if there is an updated driver.

My HP desktop PC, Envy 700-220ef, upgraded itself to Windows 10 a few days ago, without my blessing. Since them, at startup time it goes directly from the BIOS/POST screen to the Windows blue logo, so I get no chance, as I did before with Windows 8.1, to see the UEFI menu and select from it the operating system or boot source I want. How can I get the UEFI menu back ? Thanks.

Hello, I'm having trouble upgrading Windows 7 Pro to Windows 10.  The installation (manual and automatic) fails due to the incompatibility of ProtectTools Security Manager (according to Microsoft). This is also described in a document I found on the HP website: http://h20565.www2.hp.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?sp4ts.oid=5212912&docId=emr_na-c04734799&docLocale... .Before I can uninstall ProtectTools, I need to unistall other HP tools, like Device Access Manager,... And there lies my problem: how do I uninstall Device Access manager? It's not listed under 'Programs and features'. I tried uninstall tools like CCleaner and Revo Unistaller, but they can't find it either. I have installed the latest version of ProtectTools, via the SoftPaq Download Manager and disabled all features in ProtectTools, as far as I can tell. How do I uninstall the ProtectTools suite? Best regards,Wim.

Hi @Gneiss, Welcome to the HP Support Community! I understand from your posts that you are having an issue with your HP Pavilion 15-p050ca Notebook and a error message Display drive Intel HD Graphics Drivers for Windows stopped responding and has successfully recovered. I would uninstall all that are listed in the Device Manager. Click the arrow next to Display Adapters to expand that category. Right-click on Graphics and select Update Driver Software if more than 1 Graphics adapter do 1 at a time. Choose the option to Search Automatically for Updated Driver Software.The Notebook should find and automatically install the updated driverAfter the installation is complete, restart your Notebook. It should automatically update with a new Driver and software. If you need to update the Display Adapters. I would follow the method of right clicking on them in the Device Manager only. This will update the drivers on your system to work with Windows 10. Please get back to me how this goes. If this post helps you to resolve the issue you can click the Thumbs up icon to show gratitude! Please click the Accept as Solution, to the right of the Thumbs up icon, if your issues is resolved.   Thanks.

Hi,I've been considering buying a new GPU for my SFF M92p.I currently have 1GB 620 GT nvidia GPU & I would like to upgrade to a 2GB GPU.  i7-3770 Cpu 3.4GHzWindows 1016GB DDR3 RAM1T HDPSU - 240 Watt I need professional assistance on : - Can i find 2GB GPU to use on this current system @ 240 ?- If not, would i need to change my PSU ? And where do i buy such a unit ? What's it called ? [It's for gaming]    

A:Lenovo ThinkCentre M92p 2988-E2U [Video card upgra...

The GTX 750 Ti could work with a SFF M92p.   Upgrade to the latest BIOS beforehand, CD ISO method is most reliable.   Check that there aren't any taller heatsinks on the motherboard that could interfere with the graphics card (refer to photos of the card.)   
 
Since your system is older, to ensure the necessary airflow, clean the front air intake and fan with vacuum and canned compressed air, jam the fan with a cable tie or similar so it can't spin and over-speed.  Same for CPU fan and heat sink, and vac the intake and rear exhaust of the power supply.  
 

I can confirm that this MSI brand low-profile  GTX 750 Ti 2GB  card works perfectly in my M93p SFF machine without upgrading the PSU:   MSI N750-Ti-2GD5TLP
 
Measuring the power draw running Prime95 (CPU benchmark) , FurMark (GPU benchmark) , charging mobile phone via USB and copying large files at the same time , it stays below 190W.   Have been running this for several hours. I have also been playing Fallout 4 (FullHD, ultra textures, 60 FPS) for 100 hours without any problems.   As the case is quite compact, I was worried about the temperature but it stays below 80C for the GPU at full power over extended periods of time (about 25C ambient temp in the room). 
 
Installation is ok. Just mount the low profile bracket and move the PCIe 1x WiFi card (if you have one) into another slot.  Preferably leave an empty slot next to the graphics card.

A:will a HP Pavilion 15-n034sa motherboard fit into a HP Pavilion 15-n083sa ?

Actually that's a hard question, generally its not possible to install another motherboard, sometimes it is. In this case one is an AMD platform and the other is an Intel platform, there could be tons of differences in mounting holes, physical design, clearance, connectors, heat dissipation requirements, cooling systems, etc. Laptops are not like desktops that use more standardized designs.

My HP Pavilion 500-205t was destroyed by a lightning strike. The HD is o.k. I have purchased an HP Pavilion 500-490 because the specs were very close.  I  want to use my 205t HD. Both computers are Core i3-4130, have 1 TB 7200 SATA 6G 3.5 HDs, same OS (Windows 7 Pro 64). My question is:  can I swap them out, or do I need to get an external HD enclosure and copy the 205t to the 490?

XPS13 with Windows 10.  See screen shot below.  Dell Support Assist program says the two driver updates are recommended.  clicking "install" it shows progress to install, then says installed, but on refresh or re-entry to the program it still shows them as needing to be installed.  No errors generated.  Other driver updates done the same way without issue.  Suggestions?

A:Dell SupportAssist - says driver updates are installed but still showing need to be installed after refresh?

Don't use Dell Support assist with windows 10. Windows 10 will install generic drivers if Dell doesn't have win 10 drivers. You should mention the full model name of the computer. Does Dell support your model for upgrading to win 10? If so, get the win 10 drivers from Dell Drivers and Downloads.

hi peoples

i have installed my media centre for the 3rd time in a month. Due to various issues. (1 being sleep) Now i have installed the same drivers as the first build for HDMI audio and video, which i had perfect dvd playback and tv on, however i am faced with errors about video drivers not properly installed.

Last time it was the HDMI driver which i have installed and reinstalled 3 times. It seems every time i follow the exact same process at rebuilding vista 64 i get a different result.

Is there a way you can reset media centre so it checks the drivers all over again. I am interested in resetting audio and video if possible

A:Vista x64 media centre video drivers not installed or installed incorrectly

Hi, audiophile, and welcome to the forums.

It would help to know your Graphics card and setup - I have installed Vista Ultimate x64 twice - once for testing, and then a format and reinstall as I changed the partition setup - since then (2 months now) I have not had a single issue with WiMP / WMC.

This question was hard to google since it is a little complex to to type out the question but I don't think may be too difficult to answer.

The question is this:

Will performance speed be different

if I have a setup of WinXP(Home or Pro) in a HDD with no software installed in it and a separate HDD with all apps/software installed on a separate HDD

OR

if I have a setup of WinXP(Home or Pro) in a HDD with all the apps/software installed on that HDD? (The extra HDD would be separate for music, pics, docs, etc)
Thanks in advance for reading this question.

Hello and thanks in advance for your time Earlier this afternoon I noticed that the sound on my Thinkpad W was no longer working I hadn't really done anything of note with my computer- just updated Adobe Reader to v that I can think of When I checked the notification area I saw this However when I right click and click quot Playback Devices quot I get the following I immediately checked Device Manager and found that everything appeared to be fine I tried uninstalled and reinstalling the Conexant and NVIDIA drivers as well as updating BIOS Nothing seems to help When try to use the mute volume buttons on the keyboard the speaker mute button lights up when pressed but the microphone mute and volume - buttons don't appear to do anything I've also tried plugging in headphones and that does not make any difference When I boot from an Ubuntu CD however sound works fine so I don't think that it's a hardware issue Anything that you folks could do to point in the right direction would be greatly appreciated Thanks

A:No sound: No Audio Output Device is Installed, even when it is installed

The Red X on the speaker icon in the notification area means there are no speakers plugged into the Green Speaker out jack on the back of the computer.

I was wondering if this would help?
Fix - Catalyst Control Center - CCC - will not open/install

I see no evidence that the AMD driver installed at all.
Right click desktop does not show ccc, and ccc is not in the lower right panel.

Windows shows an amd driver 8.5 and driver date from 2009??
And the program says it is an install manager??

A:installed HD 2600 pro card, installed AMS driver, but no ccc software?

I just installed 'hydravision' and got not software complaints.
I still see nothing about ccc or AMD driver etc...

Site where I got the driver

card is visiontek hd 2600 pro AGP

I'll start from the beginning. Put together a computer of spare parts from old pc's neither of which are very old. Everything works fine, I installed vista only to find out nvidia doesn't support nforce2 for vista. I couldn't get my mouse or audio to work, only keyboard. XP drivers for nforce2 wouldn't work on vista. So I formatted my partition and began to instal a fresh copy of windows xp everything was fine until computer restarted and now the computer hangs at boot. shows graphics card information then hangs after showing Main Processor: AMD athlon 2800+. It wont boot and I cant get into bios to even boot from cd or anything. I know enough to be dangerous, not the tech savy individual. NEED HELP

A:installed vista didnt like, installed xp but hangs at boot

is there any jumpers i can connect or something of the sort to reset the hard drive...

Hello,
 
My Laptop was remotely accessed"unauthorized and I believe up to 7 files were installed, although I do not know what they were and can not find them.
.
The next day my bank info was compromised and I started receiving phone calls and text messages, possible keylogger or remote access still on my PC? 
 
Here is my log as an attached file

A:PC was unauthorized remotely and exe's files installed. Keylogger installed?

​Hi,
​I see you have already run several tools. when you ran FRST it produced another log called addition.txt that you can find in the same location you have FRST. Can you post that log. We will also get another tool to use.

​Usually Iam only on line once or twice per day so you may not get a response back from me until the following day.

​Download TDSSKiller (exe or zip version) and save it to your desktop.
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/tdsskiller/
    Doubleclick on TDSSKiller.exe to run the application, then on Start Scan.
    Accept the EULA and KSN statement to continue the install
    Click the SCAN button to start.
    If an infected file is detected, the default action will be Cure, click on Continue.
    If a suspicious file is detected, the default action will be Skip, click on Continue.
    It may ask you to reboot the computer to complete the process. Click on Reboot Now.
    If no reboot is required or no threats found click on Report. A log file should appear. Please copy and paste the contents  in your reply.
    If a reboot is required, the report can also be found in your root directory (usually C:\ folder) in the form of     TDSSKiller_xxxx_log.txt. Please copy and paste the contents of that file here.

Hi, I downloaded Avira onto my new laptop before realising that Mcafee was already on there. I have since read that I should have removed Mcafee first. I have done that now using the Windows uninstall option and also using the tool on the Mcafee website but wondered if there was anything else I needed to do, and also if I would have any problems because of this? It's a Toshiba laptop running Windows 8.

Thanks.

I can barely download programs because it involves the web browser and always goes to the D drive. Is there any way i can transfer my things from the D drive back to the C drive. My c drive has like 69GM free space.

if i reinstall, is there a possibility that it will install to C drive. if so can you guide me? I have an Sp2 operating system CD, but the problem was when i tried to use same cd and cd key, it rejected it so i got an sp3 cd and it was able to install, but then it installed to the wrong drive, D. I really wanted everything to install to drive C as my primary drive

A:When I installed SP3 it installed my operating system to D drive

You need to make backup of all your documents, data etc. before you think of re-installing.

Then put XP Cd in and boot computer off it.
Do not choose to repair existing XP installations but do a clean install.
When the screen comes to choose a partition, choose the first partition. Later choose to format the the selected partition using NTFS.

Now you will have a clean install of XP with C: drive as root drive
