Try system restore
Hard drive can be replaced, also exspansion drive can be added.
The Mother Board might be ok
Going back to XP Program did not help. The Registry would contain fragments.
A highly trained Tech should have done the XP change over..even then there is no guarantees.
Especially if the original computer was built with Windows 7
If you have no virus protection then you will attract nasties within 5 mins on the net.

We can all clearly see candy is better with computers than I am, so any questions about computers or page building just ask candy, shes better than tyler.

I am only trying to be helpful
But you did say you don't go into the Registry
You never know I might know something, but page building no.
Lets try again. People have old computers DESKTOPS that they throw out.
Your hard drive might be ok try it on another computer.
The Mother Board is the first to go. Make sure your hard drive is caput.
You can buy discs to trouble shoot.
There is lots of second hand equipment about.
How could you possible tell if your hard drive was worn out and unstable.
second hand computers are checked before sold.
We all can learn something about computers.

For a comparison example, You know in auto racing competitions there are the 'mechanics' and the 'drivers' of each team?,, well I am the driver of the computer and also creator of the tracks (websites) it drives on, the computer fixers are the 'mechanics' and fixers of the computers.

Now let me think Tyler, bet you had a new QUALITY Processor chip put in to make your computer go faster.
What size have you got...must be high spec. I will tell you what I got if you will tell me yours.
Now it is called Pentium.
GOT IT Cars go round in a circle because it is a LAP.

Microsoft Windows XP
Service Pack 3
Genuine Intel (R) CPU
2160 @ 1.80 GHz
1.79 GHz 3.24 GB of RAM
Used Space: 13.9 GB
Free Space: 215 GB
Capacity: 229 GB

Almost exactly as mine. Except for 2.99GB of Ram which temporally stores data.
But I think you can download more.
(Ram is Random Access Memory)
Mine also says Physical Address Extension
In computing, Physical Address Extension (PAE) is a feature to allow (32-bit) x86 processors to access a physical address space (including random access memory and memory mapped devices) larger than 4 gigabytes.
WHAT! I thought I had 64 bit..yep I just got lost.
pentium microprocessor, relatively new central processing unit from the Intel Corporation (Computers) I had to look this up.
used space 188GB (I am a busy Bee)
Total Capacity 232GB
My Extension Drive is 931GB
Free Space is 923GB
Say SSC your joke flew over my head, I am just an Ambling Armadillo.
I am more interested in what the man payed out to have his computer mended. I thought he had no money and was going to stare at the wall.
It's like trying to squeeze a dried up lemon.
But his spec is interesting.
21 Re: my computer on Sat Nov 17, 2012 9:55 pm
Yeah you ARE busy to be using that much harddrive space, damn you must have a lot of videos or something on there, no wonder you needed an extension drive. My drive is nowhere close to being used up and needing an ext drive I don't store much on it at all, I just have the essentials like programs I use. All the videos and pics or anything else I burn to disk to keep my computer from having to store it. But I can understand why you might like to keep stuff on your pc.
Yeah mine also says Physical Address Extension I just didn't include it in my post.

I am going to delete some Videos from Real Player but there are only about 20
I have loads of silver discs with stuff on them.
My hard drive goes back to 2005
