How can I uninstall SP2? I have gone to Add/Remove Programs Nothing there? When I try to download SP1 from CD or site it will not run, I get an error message saying I have a newer version and it can not download??

Any help would be appreciated,

La Princess

Have you tried system restore. When you install SP2, It usually creates a restore point before it installs. Go back to that restore point. I have had to do it twice now on a laptop that refuses to install SP2.

Yes I have tried that and it wouldn't work. Finally did a system repair, which so far has worked out well...but...I now have another question and it is going to be a "duh" question but it has been a LONG time since I had this problem....Everything is HUGE icons, print, screens...where and how do I adjust the size????

Thank you so much,

La Princess

hi, LaPrincess,

I thinkyou want to right-click an open area on your desk top. Choose properties-->Settings and change the screen resolution. :flowers: Edit, I'm sorry, if you have a laptop, navigate to: display properties via control panel. :thumbsup:

I recall once having a similar problem, I couldn't change from 800 X 600 up to 1024 X 768. I believe at reload of the OS, I was once at even lower than 800 X 600 before I loaded the VGA driver update, which is now a routine at reloading for me. I have a CD that came with the nVidio platform the mobo uses...but as an alternative, I can visit the manufacturer's site for driver updates. The windows Update site also has as hardware updates, if you choose custom installation not express, any that are detected as needed.

So, check your system & VGA driver updates...having had some variables enter into to picture as a result of your service pack install/uninstall I'd look into it. My driver installs appear in add/remove programs as ones that have "no size", but obviously have some effect. :thumbsup: Do you know kinda what I'm refering to?

I have gone to Add/Remove Programs Nothing there?



You should have. add/remove programs sample image

Thank you so much for the help,

Your entirely welcome, LaPrincess,

I can identify with so many problems, 'cause I've run into so many, :thumbsup:
My problem overall is "I kinda know what I'm refering to, too most of the time" :flowers:
