Firstly, as this is my first post, hello! I have a computer problem, and have been reading this site for a few days and it has been very very helpful so far, but now i need a little more guidance. Firstly, i have a HP desktop and a Sony VAIO laptop, both working fine with XP Pro. My sister was recently given a Toshiba Sat Pro, and it seems the laptop has been completely wiped of everything. So, i fancied having a go at putting XP onto it. I purchased a new charger for it (it was missing) and purchased XP. First time i attempted to install XP, it seemed to go fine, but then about 60% into the install, it began having problems with files, about 10, one of them being msvcrt.dll, which it couldnt copy. The other files that it wouldnt copy also, started with msv..... seemed strange to me. So, after reading some threads and not knowing the condition of the laptop, i downloaded and run Memtest86. This picked up NO errors at all. So all good Tried re-installing several times since this, and same issue. The file mscvrt.dll comes up every time though. I have cleaned the disc (its new anway) and it looks perfect. Still the same. Any advice??
