    If Service Pack 1 really is the only problem, go to "Winidows Update", and update your operating system. While you are there, I would suggest you get Service Pack 2 also. These packs have a lot of system as well as security updates. Just click on your start button and you will see "Windows Update". Click on it and thats all you have to do, other than follow instructions and decide if you want to do it or not. DO IT.

    You can turn on "Auto Updates" and XP will keep your computer updated automaitically when new updates are released.

    Let us know how it turns out.

    i would keep in mind though, that sp2 has caused alot of issues with software and hardware alike. so if you start having problems after sp2 install, keep that in mind.
