A buddy had this computer sitting in his office and gave to me cuz no one used it. I took it home and turned it on. I went to the device manager to check out the hardware, only to find that the device manager screen doesn't pop up. I then went to used the Search feature in the start button, only to have the monitor just show the monitor's wallpaper for a about 2 seconds. then the icon would appear again. The task bar then changes color from blue to Beige, and reverts to the old style of windows. I want to use the computer for some music work i do but audio driver will only work every now and then. I have run anti viruses and reg cleaners. I downloaded SP3 thru firefox, because It would not let me down load it thru IE. I am wondering if it is a hardware issue. I don't have a back up disk for it so reformatting it is most likely not possible. Any help?
