Hi nic777,

Very nice to see you only 13 and working on PC's.

I had this exact problem, only my memory is a bit faded right now... I think it had something to do with slip-streaming SP2 into the XP CD. Also google is quite vague for once, but mostly it's incompatible hardware with Windows XP. Hopefully I haven't spoken in language that you don't understand :)

If you unclear about something, post back and of course like we always do we will see if we can fix it.

Well, i did do quite the slipstream process to a diffrent cd though, this only i bought from microsoft my otherone i had corp and all....harware wise, i have a radeon pci 9600 i thought, got bios set to it and all, and a dsl card which neither should cause problems i though.
