why does windows SP3 screw up my windows XP?

September 1, 2011 at 23:42:39
Specs: Windows XP, hp 564A/512?
SP3 = 5 times installed = MADE A MESS EACH TIME!
" = 5 times UNINSTALLED = works just fine with the SP2 which is unavailable now!
IE8 = installed with the SP3 = GENERATES "ANOTHER" MESS!
Microsoft INDIAN TECH can not fix either SP3 or IE8, got mad and hungup the phone on me!
tried to tell me that my Bios needed updating?
1~ HP does not offer a = BIOS UPDATE!
2~ energy options = WILL NOT WORK!
3~ automatic updates = WILL NOT WORK!
4~ outlook express 6 = WILL NOT RECIEVE OR SEND! > 'telecom checked the settings'

Does your specs-tag "512?" mean you think you have 512Ram installed?

If indeed that is the amount of Ram installed, the choice between upgrading to SP3 with available Ram and sticking with SP2 but increasing Ram is an easy one, even when $$ is involved.

Dunno what bios update has to do with sp3, Dunno what ram has to do with it either.

I guess I'd download the sp3. I'd reload xp to whatever you have to make it like it came from the factory. OEM restore with disks or partitions. Then use the usb file of the sp3 to update directly.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.
