Hi all! I am currently having a problem installing some of my computer games on Windows XP. I was having several problems before, so I formatted my hard drive and reinstalled XP. Since then, about half the games I've tried installing will not load properly. They will get to their installation menu, but when I click on install, both of my CD-Rom drives will just read the CDs endlessly and Windows Task Manager shows me that installer.exe is not responding. I then try to explore the CDs and run the setup.exe instead, but the results are the same, the CD- Roms read endlessly and setup.exe does not respond. The only thing I can think of now is to
Hi, Am trying to install the above program, but keep getting the following error message: 16 bit Windows Subsystem C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\AUTOEXEC.NT.

I have installed a program (SF330 from Stucsoft) on my computer that everytime I try to access the datatbase functions within the program I get the following error: Run-time error 48 - Cannot Load DLL and I get booted out of the program. The software company's tech support is less than helpful as they have basically told me it's something wrong with our network setup here at the office, does anyone have any ideas where to even begin looking??????Hi Dawn, I strongly suspect this error message is from the app in question. I suggest calling the software company in question back, and hopefully you will get another support tech. They should at least be able to tell you the problem that generates the error, so you can start looking in right direction.

After installing some new drivers for my soundcard (Creative Labs Live!), my computer failed to start. Loading it in safe mode such that I could see the boot sequence, I saw it was hanging on the "mup.sys" file. After trying several where I am at right now: irregardless of whether or not the CD is in the drive, it will automatically start the setup process. What's more, it shows the "The File 'Asms' on Windows XP Professional CD-ROM Is Needed" error, which means it cannot see the CD-ROM which would not be such a great problem, except it can't see ANY devices, including my keyboard and mouse, eventhough it seems to think they're there. It didn't hang at that point, it simply doesn't see/accept any input from any devices. And, irregargless of

I've searched around the internet for a solution to this problem and found that Microsoft only addresses this issue with Windows NT. I have found, however, that many people out there with Windows XP (Media Edition or not) are encountering the same installation error message while attempting to install a whole variety of software programs. For reference, my system is a Dell Dimension 8400, 3.2 GHz P4, 1GB DDR2 RAM, 250 GB hard drive, and XP media edition SP2. Any help would be greatly appreciated! FYIGMOHi, Close all running programs.

Screen pops up with a reason of: STOP 0x0000007F (0x00000000, 0x00000000, 0x00000000, 0x00000000). The screen then says to run a diagnostic utility that was provided by a manufacturer. It also points to mismatched memory and to change video adapters. I ran the Microsoft memory test program numerous times as well as memtest to diagnose the problem. I had lock-ups with memtest and I replaced my motherboard and the memtest lockups went away. I thought that was the problem, but the stop error screen appeared again tonight. I don't have another video adapter to try and based on all the memory tests I ran, I'm thinking the memory is good. I'm at the point of just formatting the hard drive clean to see if that helps. Any ideas here? Thanks for you help. System
Every now and again my PC refuses to boot. I either get "Boot failure" or "Press Control-Alt-Del to reboot". Sometimes after several attempts it boots and sometimes I have to switch it off for 10-15 minutes and retry (when it usually works). I've no idea why. This happens from cold so it can't be overheating. Any ideas? I'm running XP Pro (SR1) on a bog-standard PC. Cheers. BobbyI'd diagnose a hardware problem of some kind - quite possible PSU, although is could be other things (many of them .. memory, cpu, motherboard, disk drive). It certainly isn't an XP problem, since it doesn't get that far.

I've tried uninstalling everything I problem recommended right clicking on sapi5.inf and clicking install, but I haven't got a sapi5.inf file on my system.

I'm having a problem installing Total Access 2004 on my Dell computer with Windows XP pro. I contacted Earthlink a number of times and they can't seem to help me at all. I have the CD but can't seem to install it, have tried using, run/ as suggested by Earthlink entered (D:\Setup.exe\Window etc.) I get an error message. I downloaded TA2004 and still can't get it to work. I'm new to PC's so maybe I'm missing a step, but I've followed the instruction in the READ ME, and on Earthlinks site on and AOL Instant Messenger applications they (Dell) have loaded. I haven't used any of Earthlink's software for many years and don't know if any useful applications are on the disk (AdSubtract, Firewall, etc) that you might benefit from installing.

This is a pretty crappy way to handle support but I'll post my question and hope to get a reply. I just installed SP1 in preparation for installing some new software which seemed to require it. It took over an hour to download and install (with DSL!). When I tried to restart my computer it hung up on the page which tells you there's a problem and gives you the option of starting in various "modes." I tried restarting in Safe Mode as well as the ordinary mode several times still get the same page. Help!
I am suddenly having a problem installing upgrades to several 3rd party programs. First was an upgate to the KDS CD organizer software. I D/L'd the update and unzipped it but when I went to the directory where it was unzipped to and clicked on setup.exe I got an error message telling me that setup.exe could not be found?? I called KDS and they sent me a CD but when I tried to run it I got an error saying the drive was not ready??? I can explore and see the files on the CD and I tried both CD drives on my system with the same result. I can run the CD on my laptop so I know it's not the CD. I am having the same problem with a D/L'd upgrade to [email protected]
