Can't run service pack 2
Hi,recently I had to re-run xp on my pc because a whole lot of things just
started messing up:the color was completely wrong and out of context,windows
went to the left of the desktop(???),and it wouldn't show the log-in
screen.Well now I try installing service pack 2 again(though it worked
perfectly fine before,for months)and the same problems happen again,and my pc
isn't even a year old.
Can someone please help?

Re: Can't run service pack 2
Please define "re-run". Do you mean a Repair Installation; you used an
OEM Recovery Disk; you reformatted and reinstalled XP ?
If the system isn't even a year old, SP2 *should* have already been
included either in the XP CD or the OEM Recovery Disk.
Or, is this a used system that is older than one year ?

The installation logs for SP2 are located in the WINDOWS directory
[folder]. They are named srvcpack.log and setupapi.log.
Check those logs for errors.
