Of late I have been asked to sort out problems with peoples systems after they have upgraded from Me to XP. This can be either an upgrade or a full install of XP. Most of the problems seem to be related to the USB connections.
Has anybody else had any similar problems after upgrading. If so how have you resolved the problem?
The last problem I was asked to try to resolve was yesterday. The person had XP installed on her laptop.
Previous to this the printer worked fine, now it has decided to only print one page off instead of say three pages. She has to keep going into print and select current page to print any others off.
The only way I could get the printer to print a series of documents off was to install it on another port.
All drivers are up to date. Systems meet required O/S spec's.
This machine and the others have all been sent back to the suppliers for the install. I am just wondering if they have just installed XP on top of Me. Instead of doing a clean install as they have stated.
Never heard of this problem before myself, I have installed XP on top of ME and clean install of XP, quite a few times. Have you looked at the Windows XP Hardware compatibility list on the Microsoft website?
just upgraded to xp from me today...had no problems on installation but afterwards kept getting random restarts and system dumps......in the end narrowed it down to my cd/dvd drive.....now its disconnected everything seems to be fine! regards
