OK, 2 xp problems...I'm freakin' out here! check my profile to see my system 1 specs. 1. I login to Xphome and Xp hangs for a very long time and doesn't show my Start Menu/Taskbar/Desktop icons. I open Task manager (which takes long to load up) explorer.exe is running on 99%. This started happening since i defragged my HDD and used system mechanics pro 5 and restarted pc then BOOM this long xp hang happening to me even on safe mode.I tried last known config/2 system restores. Nothing worked. I have a Alienware Xp home Recovery CD-rom. But i don't know if it's a upgrade cd or a full xp cd. So if it's upgrade i can't format my drive/if full i can format my drive. or i do have xp recovery console installed but don't know how to use it! If i don't need to format my drive please tel me. maybe some registry setting that caused this (who knows, you know?) Please tell me. 2. I try to reinstall xp but when Xp setup is loading i get an error message saying "Si3112r.sys could not be found". I know you're gonna tell me to get the drivers from manufactor site. Which drivers? Which site? For my motherboard (asus k8v deluxe) or my Hard Disk Drive (seagate ST380013AS SCSI)? Please help me on either 1 or 2. I'm begging you. email me or reply. please read carfully of my description of the problem. I'm willig to delete all files too (if that's the case). I'm willing to go anywhere online to find drivers please guide me there. I'm willing to give you hiJack this logs also. Note: that task manager is the only things that works right now because i ended the explorer.exe process (which took 99% of cpu). now i have no desktop icons/start menu coming up. Please help me. feed me the advanced way. Ask any questions. this is a plead.
