I recently bought an advent computer from pc world which had windows xp on. I was told by a friend that microsoft office 2000 was not compatable with xp. However I did try to install office 2000 and my pc crashed, I tried to uninstall office 2000 but the pc crashed again. I decided to use the system recovery disc that i received with my computer but the computer kept crashing. When I rang advent they said it sounded like a hard drive fault and to take it back to pc world and get a replacement which I have since done. Can anyone tell me if office 2000 is compatable with xp before I try and install it again on the computer I have now.
I bought XP Pro six months ago and upgraded my desktop from Win98. Had no problems with Office2000 and other s/w already loaded under Win98. But now both this and my laptop (XP Home), can have bother loading additional s/w dated before XP became popular. You need a later version of Office2000.
I have since discovered that it wasn't microsoft office that made my computer crash. I am now on my 2nd Advent computer after the first one being returned. I am still having trouble with the computer crashing, pressing Ctrl Alt Del does nothing and I have to turn the computer off at the power. I can't play any games at all without it crashing and it has even crashed when I have created documents. I have done a system restore but to no avail. Advent have told me to return the computer to pc world and get another one but I feel inclined not to pick an advent again.
