  1. Did you make any hardware changes beffore this occured?
  2. I'd start by looking at bios options. Some will not allow the onboard to run if there is a PCI one installed.
  3. I wish I could attach one of my hundreds of usb to ps/2 addaptors to this post that I have right here, within an arm's reach. However, you should be able to pick one up at any office supply shop. That is, if your BIOS does not support emulation as suggested by LLXX. **edited to fix many typo's**

  5. Not certain that is exactly correct(I could be wrong though). The application in question, Internet Explorer, presumably has access. Ohterwise he most likely would not have been able to download SP2. Having said that, since my earlier post I was thinking that is more likely an issue with the settings in Internet explorer. Go to "Tools, Inernet options" from the toolbar. Click to the security tab, then the sites button there. Add your local site. See how that goes. *edit to add...Is there any chance you are using IE7 Beta2? I know there are some issues withh HTTP resolution with it...just a thought.
  6. As part of installing SP2, XP now has a built-in firewall. That may very well stop you from browsing certain sites. Try disabling your firewall via the control panel and see if that takes care of it. If it does, you will need to configre your firewaall if yo plan to re-enable the use of the firewall.
  7. Have you done a full scan of the hard drive for errors. http://www.samsung.com/Products/HardDiskDr...le/hutil200.exe Also, I would reset the BIOS to default settings. See if that helps.
  8. It has to do with how you selected the install of "Software,Optional" If you select to install .NET framework 2.0 before you install the SP1 for version 1, this creates problems. I would first try to install the SP1 for verion 1 and see if that takes care of it, as well as any others for .net. If that doesn't take care of it, do this... Start>Run type "control userpasswords2" > Uncheck "Users must enter a username and password to us this computer" >Enter the username and password(if you are using one) for the account you would like to log in automatically. Click OK for all the prompts. That should take care of it.
  9. I agree with that. The other thing is, is this a custom install CD? Or is there anything else special about this disk?
  10. I would start by looking in your BIOS for anything that stands out there. Reset the BIOS to defaults too. Make sure that there are no scanners or other peripheral devices connected during the install. I would also use a hard drive installation tool to wipe the drive clean and make certain there are no inadvertant partitions ons on it. the Ultimate bootcd may very well give you a hand with this. Besides the fact that it is a great tool to keep at hand. http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/
  11. What are you using to start these installs? My guess is that you are trying to use boot.ini. That should work. However, you may want to try somthing like a boot manager, for example smart bootmanager. There are a bunch of other free ones. This should let you know if everything is ok with your partitions.
  12. There may still be some kind of virus or malware installed. I have seen many that disable system tools like msconfig, regedit and task manager. Your advice checking the local group policy is very good though.
  13. For future reference, this is super helpful information to include when requestiong help. Anything that changes the default Windows installation and modifies things as important as the Login can and do affect the way the default settings behave. Try uninstalling the changes made with this program and then reread this thread. My guess is that it will work, as no-one here has given any information that is incorrect.
  14. Have you tried simply clearing your cache?
