Okay, here is the detailed problem. 1) My keyboard doesnt work untill the winxp(default) starts and checks for numlock lights. i hope u got me. For this reason i cannot go to BIoS or jump to fedora core. 2) I am the administrator. msconfig etc doesnt work. i have tried to go to winfolder to execute it but no avail. 3) When i browse the net the browsers displays only for first few mins. then 'page cannot be displayed'. Solutions i have tried with no avail. 1) set up a new partiiton of xp to browse the net of course to post this reply and download new virus signatures for avg antivirus. 2) Scanned computer with avg, Tds , wormguard but no avail. my default os is windoes xp service pack 2. 1.8 ghz comp , 256 mb ram, nvidita tnt 32 mb graphics.
