    I haven't seen that one either. What's the exact message?

    Did you just install this over a pirated version of XP or is this a clean install?

    I think you're deff asking for trouble with only that little RAM, but I wouldn't have expect you'd get the message you're getting. As Freddy asked, give us the exact message that's coming up on screen ?

    Hi again guys , the actual mesage reads as follows

    A problem is preventing windows from accurately checking the license for this computer
    Error code: 0x80070002
    Now im thinknig it could be a computer problem rather than the xp disc code problem ??

    Glad you sorted it, but i would recommend at least 256MB of RAM for XP. When SP2 came out it really did hit the resources......

    Thanks for the links Gav :thumbleft

    Yeah, i set up an old P2 which was the minimum spec going by MS for SP1 when i was doing my A+. With no programs at all on it was as slow as a Austin Maxi :biggrin
