  • 1. Can't start Media Center
    Have installed Windows XP Media Center Edition Version 2005 (OEM disks) on my PC. Athlon XP 2000+, 320 MB PC133 SDRAM, AOpen AK73(A) motherboard, which has a VIA KT133A chipset, 160GB HD, Hauppauge WinTV-PVR-250 card. Everything in Windows XP works fine, but as soon as I start Media Center the PC locks up. It shows me the first time setup screen, but the machine is dead. Curiously, I did have Media Center working about a week and several reinstalls of XP MCE ago, but it locked up when I added the MCE USB remote control module and I've not been able to get it to work since, with or without the module attached. But, as I say, that was a reformat of the HD ago. I tried a beefier graphics card, an Nvidia 5900XT card, but with exactly the same result. I've tried it with and without the WinTV card installed. I installed the roll-up patch from automatic updates - no difference. I looked for other patches which might be relevant (such as the remote control unit), but they wouldn't install on my MCE2005 system. Any suggestions?

  • 3. Repartition?
    Ok I'm not having any luck with the knowledge base. Could someone please explain to me in laymen's terms how to do this. I have too much memory on my D drive and not enough on my C drive. I'm using windows xp, 512 ram, pentium 4, 2.4 ghz. When I installed a new internal drive and installed my OS it automatically put most of my memory (somewhere around 60 gig) on D. After downloading all of the updates and patches, I have very little left on C. I'm not sure if this is why my computer is lagging or not but I suspect there's not enough virtual memory. I've already done the usual scanning for spyware and viruses and there are none. I just want to know how to move memory from D over to C without buying an expensive progrom like Partition Magic. It doesn't even let me format D.....it's greyed out. From the info I found, it's because it's set as the paging file. I tried to change that but it's still listed as paging file even though when I check, my paging file is set to C. I know I will need to back up my computer.....another thing I don't know how to do. My version of windows didn't come with that function. I'm willing to reinstall OS because I know I can change the partition there but I don't want to lose any data or programs, updates, etc. in the process.
  • 4. Videos play audio, but only show video on window resize
    I'm running an eMachines T3104 that has been upgraded to MCE. I originally could not play any video getting the "Video Error. Unknown error" problems. When I upgraded my video drivers to the latest, I can now play videos, however I only get a black screen and hear the audio. When running MCE in a windowed mode, I get the same black screen and audio but if I resize the screen the screen will show the frame that the video is at. So if I continuously drag the resize around it will continue to update the screen, although when I stop so does the updates! Dragging the screen around doesn't work, only resizing. Any Idea's as I cannot update the video any more, DirectX 9 is fully updated, tried running both WMP 10 and 11 both fully updated. Have updated with all MCE and WMP updates. I'm thinking its a direct draw problem but if I turn the troubleshooting slider down too far then MCE comes up as a black box! Any help thanks! Anthony
  • 5. Television Display - Wrong Quality
    I find the solution about poor display in video mode. I suspect his one of my TV tuner, it's not. The display card is faulty. I replace that and I loose the vertical line and the dead pixels (Windows and DOS), display come clean like a new. Thanks all for your inspiration. Mikeromeo Quebec Canada -- Mikeromeo Quebec Canada

How would we know. You don't tell us what machine!

Regardless, you cannot upgrade to XP Pro from MCE. You must do a clean 
install.  And why would you want to?  MCE is just Pro with a couple features 
disabled.

I want XP Pro because I want to add the machine to a domain and MCE doesn't 
allow it.

<Break>

Do not use registry repair utilites
they will probably do more harm than good.
Hopefully the utility has an "undo" feature
