  1. Well here the error I keep getting I can't even look at my system specs.


    I can't even get rid of it I don't know how, well I'm not even a genious. So I would be appreciated if anyone helped I have a MSI U100 series The stickers say Intel atom inside and designed for windows xp then it says energy star so anyone could help?:blackeye:

    P.S when I download stuff or open files it tells me to open something with it but I cannot. Oh and I can't even use my volume nothing happens when I press it but, luckily I have a sound button on the keyboard

    Oh sorry, well say I am downloading it arlight. Now when I'm downloading it it tells me to put it in a file, but I don't have any files for it. it does this with all my download like if I wanted to download google chrome. If I find a file that should work it does not.
