Having problems with your PC Desktops ?
I have a laptop lg e500 it was mabe for windows vista i down graded the operationg system to Xp and now everyting i access start run cmd and then i press enter it shuts down the computer
Best thing I can suggest, do a fresh install of Windows XP. If you have a boot disk, I would suggest going into fdisk and wiping out the paritions and then creating one primary partition. After that then reboot with the boot disk and then format the drive using the command "format c: /u/c" without the quotes. After the format is done then reboot with the windows xp cd and install windows xp. It'll be a fresh copy at this point. Lots of times when doing an upgrade or downgrade some files get corrupted and weird things can happen. Do it this way and let me know what happens.
