  1. my new computer has had problems from the start: with my windows xp installation i could never get service pack 2 installed and working right. so then i switched to the copy of windows xp x64 and it is kind of working except i keep getting corrupt downloads every once in a while and my moniter likes to go into some kind of suspend mode that i cant get out of for no apparent reason.(once while i was trying to get on aim, once while i was trying to go to the winrar site. i dont remember what i was doing the other times but similar things) This is the system on my profile, what do yall think? Should i call tiger direct and get a new harddrive or am i just being a doofus?

    more data
    like size of drive and type
    MB and cpu
    I don't think at this point it's the drive
    most of your software isn't setup for 64bit anyway
    64 bit is just backwards compatable
    If you legally own your xp look up how to make a slipstreamed copy with spk2 loaded
