Hi Newuser1692. Most installations of SP2 go smoothly, but a few do give problems. If you look at the dedicated Windows XP SP2 forum by clicking on the link at the top of this page you'll see many threads on the subject. Let us know what computer or motherboard you have and someone may be able to tell you if there are any known issues with it.

Hi Newuser1692. It's best to reply via the "Add a new response" box at the bottom of the page, that way other forum members can join in the discussion. Also, how about clicking on the "Update your details" link at the top of the page and giving yourself a real nickname.

The only real incompatibility issue I have read of for modern computers is with the Intel P4 Prescott CPU click here
