  • Summary: Made one major dummy move...after configuring Win XP, I went to Servcie Pack 3. On reboot, the think started continuous beeping and showed the word "FreeDOS" in the corner. I thought SP3 was the culprit so I started over and redid everything back to SP2.
  • Pros: Bought my3 boys Dell XPS 400 P4's about 3 years ago. While upgrading memory to 2 gigs, one of the three MB's went on me (checked PS and everything else - it was the MB).

  • Pros: I have been working with many models of these MBOX barebones and so far I am very satisfied. I add an extra 80 MM fan at the front to complete the airflow and then it takes care of itself. I picked this one for a low budget computer for kids that would run Windows XP SP3 and some games, and it do...
