Hi Gene, I'm not sure what you mean by the load bar? I'm thinking it might be the little green bar that goes back and forth at the beginning. But if you want to know if your xp has problems, look at control panel, administrative tools, event viewer. Look at the system and applications for errors. Double click the error to get more info and post it here if you don't understand it. ----- Original Message ----- From: eugene leuer To: pcductape@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Sunday, June 29, 2003 4:36 AM Subject: [pcductape] xp i've installed xp on my computer. when i boot, there is no load bar at the bottom of the screen. i do have the sm. one in the middle of the screen. any way, some one told me there was something wrong w/my machine because the bar wasn't at the bottom. i'd like to hear from the group. thanks gene To unsubscribe from this list send an email to pcductape-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxx with 'unsubscribe' in the Subject field OR by logging into the Web interface.
