    I've been trying without success to get SP 3 to work on my machine, Microsoft says it is probably due to my AMD processor, have any of you encountered such a problem and if so how to rectify it..


    Many Thanks Guys!

    Hi hogndog......

    I remember there was an issue with some HP computers and SP3 for XP.
    But it wasn't a CPU problem....it was the way HP and several other OEMs configured Windows for AMD CPU powered
    systems.


    This applies to HP machines:

    This issue was brought up when SP3 first came out and there should be several threads on it at TSG


    I have an Acer with an AMD and there was no issue installing SP3.

    Thanks Stoner, I'll see about those threads, if I had it my way I'd avoid it all together, I've talked to others that say they've had problems with that build..
