I'm not that experienced with computers, so please bear with me. Hope somebody can help!
I just got a new computer (HP Pavillion a1640n, XP Media Center 2005, Intel Core 2 Duo) and I'm trying to transfer my files from my old computer to the new one. I thought the easiest way would be to download to an external hard drive and then upload to the new computer. The external drive I bought is Storage Vault (Kaser Corp) 250 GB 2.0 USB. My USB port is the same.
I downloaded from my old computer, no problem, and now I want to upload to my new computer. The problem arose when I installed the vault program from the mini-CD (Regen.exe) in order to access the files on the external drive. XP recognizes the drive but when it starts to open the vault program, it immediately reboots my computer. When this first happened, the program was listed in my start up and XP would start up but then immediately reboot. I managed to get it out of the start up programs (via msconfig) but it's still rebooting if I try to open the program. It starts to open it but then reboots. Does anybody know what's wrong? Thanks!
