but if the system has sp3 version system files, there is "no way" an sp2 cd can replace missing or corrupted sp3 system files. -- dbÂ·Â´Â¯`Â·...Â¸><)))Âº> DatabaseBen, Retired Professional - Systems How can I fix this.

I'll try using the Dell mouse instead of the other mouse, to see if that may be the issue.It could be faulty/ailing hardware.

It really can make a difference, if no result, then try something else.There were issues of installing SP2 on XP systems in the past. http://www.pcreview.co.uk/threads/windows-xp-repair-installation-hangs.3860519/ The repair attempt arose from a boot failure due to the hard drive acting up (tapping it resolved that boot failure but was running into hangs - hence the repair). So I was receptive to the idea of some device failure causing the install hang at 35 minutes. I think I already tried running that again and ended up back at the 32 minute hang at ms_netmon.

You will see the option of performing a System Recovery with warnings about losing all user data on the hard drive. I am desperate .... I would not like to do a clean install because there are a couple of programs on the computer that have data which have not been saved into files. Ive seen certain keyboard/mice cause this issue, and going to PS/2 resolved the problem. 1 Serrano OP Aron.Chavez Oct 31, 2012 at 2:46 UTC I agree with the
the reinstall setup hangs at 35 minutes remaining (during "installing devices").... Bad CD/DVD drives are common, and for some reason, XP install discs will often be the ONLY discs that don't work on a "bad" drive. Hope this helps folks. weblink someguy86 Seniorius Lurkius Registered: Jul 22, 2010Posts: 19 Posted: Tue Aug 17, 2010 8:48 am Aah, OK.
