This question concerns a HP Pavilion 1.3GHz Celeron. It took 3 days to reinstall Windows XP Home. Replaced the RAM in it and also the hard drive, still no responce to the speed. Reinstalled XP after that and it still took for ever to install it. Could it be the processor, motherboard..or what?

To whom it may concern:
Installing Windows XP can take a while depending on your system From what I see that you replaced your harddrive and ram, my only conclusion is that it is your CD-ROM drive that is slowing you down You have not mentioned anything about replacing your CD-ROM drive so I will assume that you have the original CD-ROM drive Your CD-ROM drive is not reading the Windows XP CD at a fast rate, there for it is taking a long time to install Windows XP I dont think this is anything you should be concerned about, but if you are you can just buy a new CD-ROM drive You can go into a local computer store and just ask the salesperson what is a new fast CD-ROM drive and you should be set Hope this helps!
