Xp re-install: sp1 and sp2

  bamfiesler 21:09 02 Aug 2005

Just had to do a re-install, but I went straight to SP2, forgetting about SP1. PC seems jittery, and Outlook Express refreshes slowly wneh messages are deleted.

HAve I mada a mistake?

Thanx, etc.

no,sp2 incorporates sp1 already

Ok, thanks for that. The system is really sluggish, though, with cpu usage fluctuating wildly. Can't think of what's causing this, as it's a re-install. Could it be that I reinstalled OVER the old xp, rather than doing a complete wipe?

Have you reinstalled all the system drivers to for mobo, graphics etc ?

  bamfiesler 21:53 02 Aug 2005

Don't know where I'd get the mobo ones from, as it's an old Gateway system, and I hoyed the disks after I upgraded to XP. It was ok after the previous install last year, but you have mentioned the graphics card, which I haven't re-isntalled yet; reckon it's that?

Nice one, it was the gx card!
