    my computer is acer inspire t310. Running windows xp home edtion.
    Have put in new hard drive and run discs supplied with computer to setup xp home edition.When I connected to the internet to download from windows for all the updates it seemed very slow.Windows couldnot complete download and returned error code 0x80246002. I could not find this error code on there site at all. The major problem is now trying to download from windows site the whole screen freezes even though still connected.I can move the pointer but no response on anything.I found by disconnecting phone connection at the wall I could the use the arrow to close all windows on the screen and start again by connecting to the internet but same problem once downloading commences

    Try disabling anti-virus and other such programs, then do the updates.

    Put the alpha-numeric error code into a Google search.

    I now think I could have a hardware problem. After 6 atempts to install sp2 from a cd have finally been succssesful.The other five attempts showed "setup connot continue as cannot find file" and every attempt showed a different file missing so I think the proccese of copying files and installing through the hardware was fault.
    After installing went to dailup connection and tried to connect to windows update. Bought up "my isp status window and on sent side bottom errors 0 on recieved side bottom errors after five minutes reached more than 300errors and still no windows page" This leads me to believe I may have a serios problem. Can anyone advise.

    You could use Device Manager to see if components are working properly. Use START>Settings>Control Panel>Computer Management>Device Manager (in the menu). Left single clik Device Manager. This brings up a host of devices in a right panel. For Each device, left double clik and look at the "Device Status" comment. If you are suspicious of particular devices, start with them.
