Hello Phillpower2,

 

Update: I realized I didn't have a lot to back up so I used a HD docking station and was able to access the important files. So I then performed a "Fresh Install" of XP and it seemed to act okay, during install the screen went black a few times but I don't know if that means anything. What is the next step?

 

-Thank You,

Steven S.

Hard to say about the screen going black and would need to see if it happens after the fresh install, as to what next, have you installed the MB drivers and starting with the chipset first, after that update Windows, install an AV and after that keep the computer disconnected from the Internet unless absolutely necessary.

Thank You Phillpower2,

 

I have not installed those yet but I will do that tonight, the AV will have to wait a few days. May I ask why to stay off the internet as much as possible ? I wanted to use this Laptop as an internet surfer will that be an issue?

Thank you,

Steven S.

Acknowledged  :thumbsup:

As XP is no longer supported by Microsoft (no new security or other type of updates) it is vulnerable to attack from bad guys such as hackers and people who want to steal your identity and bank details, some info here

 

If you really must use the Internet, install your AV protection as a priority and do not use IE, use a browser that still gets regular security updates, Opera or FF being two of the most popular.

Hello Steven,

 

Thanks for the update Steven  :thumbsup:

 

Correct approach installing the AV first and sourcing the drivers next, let us know if you have trouble locating any of them/when you have them all and if not already done please don`t forget to ditch IE in favour of a more secure browser.

 

You are welcome btw  :)

Hello Phill and Steven,

Hope this Saturday finds you both well.

Please forgive me for poking my nose in Phill. I saw that you said that using Chrome with XP is okay, but actually Chrome no longer provides updates for XP. I know because I am always getting rude messages about how XP is no longer supported. :)

Hope you both have a great weekend,

Chris.

I'm still locating all of the Drivers, I thought I had some from the last time my HD crashed. Any suggestions on where to locate the proper ones needed?? 

 

Thanks in advance!
