I used to have a basic pc with windows2000 and i was happy with it. Now i thought i to go up with technology so i aquired PackardBell Imedia 2.00 Gb windows XP cost me over a grand. I am realy disappointed now, it takes a long time to switch on and even longer to swich it off. When it makes error , it ask me do you want to send enquiry about the error, then i say yes, no reply comes to me.
Please can somebody tell me whether i can delete XP Home edition from my pc and install windows 2000. Cheers:(

Sorry to hear about the issues you have xaz with your new system. You can send error reports to MS but you will never hear back from them. Instead of giving up on XP why not try tweaking it a bit & see how you go. For starters what happens at startup that it takes a long time? :confused:

Can you list some of the stats of the computer that you are running XP on? such as the processor and the amount of RAM that you have. also, if it is taking 2 minutes and 40 seconds, it sounds like you have more starting up in the background than you think you do. Go to the start menu and then to run. type in "msconfig" (without the quotes) and then click the startup tab. those are all of the programs and services that come up when you enter XP. Some of those services are necessary, others you can probably turn off. If you have a large number of services, go to http://www.blkviper.com/WinXP/servicecfg.htm for a great tutorial about services and which ones you may be able to turn off.

my xp pro machine takes bout 40 sec to startup im running nav2002 nis 2002 shutdowns a killer thought at 2 mins but tweaked it to 20 secs. xaz XP is a great os but have to admit it needs a fair bit of tweaking to reach its potential.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
