Having problems with your Systemax (036052) PC Desktop ?

Two years ago I bought a used computer and a legimate copy of XP SP3, which I took to the repair shop (where I bought the computer) for installation. The shop used their own installation disk. (Because the installation was faster??) Now I have several problems and pop-up windows that say insert the XP disk and run Repair. Then I get the message that the product numbers do not match. I used a utility to change the product number, but still get the same message. I will appreciate all sugges


Answers :

The shop probably used a version of XP with a volume license key so they didn't have to go through the activation process. (They really shouldn't be working this way, but that's just my opinion.) There may be some problem with driver compatibility or you may have picked up a virus or worm.

Probably the easiest thing for you to do (relatively easy, anyway) is to reinstall XP again using your copy. If you haven't installed too many new applications since getting your computer back you won't lose anything but time. You can back your personal data up before starting.

Make sure you download the drivers you'll need for audio, network, etc. If this is a used name-brand computer you can find the drivers at the manufacturer's website. If this is a home-built machine, look inside to get the manufacturer and model information for the system board and any plug-in cards and get the drivers from the respective manufacturers' sites.

If the the computer's been running okay until now, you might try a tool called combofix. You can find instructions and download links here. Combofix is a great tool that hunts down eliminates several viruses and worms and might help out. But reinstalling XP from a fresh start and putting on current antivirus and antispyware software is a sure thing.

If I can be of more help just post a followup.
