    A world of problems.

    All right, I will change BIOS to USB 2,0 mode. Before I was able to complete the sentence above, I was bothered by the word emoj within my own text, but I got rid of it at last. I have got one of my machines running now, but everything is not perfect. I got MusicMatch running, but playback is erratic. The count of seconds shown during playback stops at intervals. I am a little sceptical of the prospect of reinstalling MMJB - Maybe it will get worse BTW the graphics card is Nvidia Geforce 710 - the least expensive I could find. That will be all for today.
  2. That's all, I don't know how to find my downloads so I can install them Please excuse me. I should perhaps have posted this in the Win10 thread. But why did I find it necessary to ask that question at all?

    The HP Elite Desk 800G1SFF is delivered with Windows 10 installed. Would anyone be able to find out if it will run Windows XP?

    A world of problems.

    I have found a problem with another machine. It works up to a point, it boots ok an displays the XP screen. But all USB contacts are missing the 5. volts. I can verify that by plugging a wired mouse with an USB plug into a different computer. It will light a red light on the underside of the mouse. But on the the problem machine there is no light and presumably no 5 volts. I'll have to go to bed very soon before i fall asleep in the sofa.

    I have a new motherboard that I've never used, but I don't think I'll bother to try. What I would like to do is to get a 'new' machine of some sort that wil run XP and forget the miserable monday behind me. Do any of you know whether XP compatible machines are available on the market? I won't even mind if it runs an Intel processor;) as long as it runs XP. It would be a big relief if I could run XP on a factory made machine or something of similar quality. I dont care about cost. I am not rich but I can handle reasonable costs.

    A world of problems.

    This morning started out so nice, An XP machine that I hadn't been using for a while was working nicely. I could run the MusicMatch program and I was looking forward to a day of the music that I had been missing for so long. I dont know what I may have done wrong,, but I lost the 5 volts on all the USB contacts. I don't know how to get it back either. The power button had been a little troublesome but after I was finished with it, it didn't work at all. I solved that with a couple of wires, and I am going to see if I can find a doorbell button or something to replace it. In the meantime I have to do with bringing two wires into contact with eachother. I blame it all on my age, I'll be 89 in a few month's time. I experience a sluggish brain. None of the pills I take seem to know what they are supposed to do. I won't open a computer cabinet again if I don't have to.

    Is it possible that I have a hardware problem? I expect the XP machine to open the BIOS utility when I press the DEL-key before it boots, but it doesn't respond now. The motherboard is quite new and unused and I expect that should eliminate the risk of having hardware problems right frrom the start?

    That makes sense, and I will try with a different power supply. I have one spare that's never been used before.

    I can use the DEL or F2 keys as much as i like but nothing happens. I have been working hard to make the machine work properly but nothing that I do makes any difference. That means I am not able to enter the BIOS utility program. The video card doesn't send anything to the display. Maybe the problem is in the BOIOS utility itself? I am beaten and can't find any way out of the problem. The machine will not boot from any CD The machine had been working for a very long time before I tried to move the hard drive from the outside to the inside of the cabinet, and nothing I've done since then has been of any use. I don't have much hope but I will see if I can find an XP or WIN7 machine for sale.

    No, that is the processor of my stationary Windows 10 machine, not a portable. All the data mentioned are from that machine. I am unable to get into the BIOS utility on the machine I'm having trouble with. And the troublemaker has been working without a hitch over more years that I can remember. And suddenly, with the only intervention I did was to move the disk from outside to inside the cabinet, the problems started. I don't know why I suddenly get italics and don't know how to get rid of them. I'll shut down now and maybe thy are gone tomorrow.

    I haven't thought of that, but I'll give it a try.

    A world of problems.

    I have been working hard for a few days to fix a small problem that has become permanent here. It all started when I decided to move a hard drive from outside the cabinet to thre inside of my Windows Xp machine. I dont know what went wrong, but it has refused to run again since that. The machine is equipped with an ASUS M5A97 motherboard and a Nvidia Geforce 710 video card. It won't boot from the hard drive where it used to work, and it won't boot from a Windows XP original CD. won't boot from the ASUS support disk for the motherboard, or any other CD either. I consider getting hold of a secondhand machine running Windows 7 or any other Windows version between Windows 2000 thru Windows 8 and 10. If I find one, I will try to make it run XP, but on a a different drive so I don 't spoil the drive I used before that ought still to be in good working order. BUT, I have a Lenovo Windows 10 machine that I bought new. Type 90GA003LMW R304CF20 P.family idea centre 310S-08lAP SSD 128G RAM 4G OS Windows10 Home Would it be possible to make it run WinXP?

    Official - Windows 10 Worst Crap Ever!

    I don't know if this is on-topic, but I hope it's not too far off. I am using a Lenovo machine type 90GA MTM 90GA003LMW R304CF20 that came with Windows 10 installed. I don't se any reason why I should use Win 10 at all instead of XP I just want to know if it can be recommended that I install XP on it? I don't even know if it would run XP if I tried, and what would I do if that went wrong? I presume that If I should experience a crash or breakdown of some sort, I wouldn't have any means of recovery? I am glad I also have a working XP machine! I have not installed the unofficial SP4. Do you recommend that I install it?

    Tiresome problem using Windows 10

    Lenovo Machine type 90GA MTM 90GA003LMW - 304CF20 ... To think that I've lived with the Windows logo for so long without being aware of its looks... Windows 98 may have been my first.

    Tiresome problem using Windows 10
