  2. Howdie,

    Did you install the virtual machine additions?
    Normally within a VM this should be software-related. Do you have a detaild
    error message?
    Again, you have already installed the additions?
    Can you say us which guest OS you have installed?

    Yes additions installed
    Host OS is WinXP Proffesional Version 2002 with SP2
    Blue screen crash was related to driver installed by Sonic software ( cd-dvd
    recording ).
    I had uninstalled this software and bunch of others preinstalled for this
    notebook.
    But still problem exist.

    Thanks for your reply.

    VPC has had trouble with modern laptops because of power management and
    Speedstep technology. The processor doesn't always switch up to speed when
    VPC wants it to. This caused problems with VPC and the 2G Pentium M
    processors in Dell laptops. Perhaps the Duo has a similar setup.

    By using BIOS->Power Management I had disabled next transitions for CMP CPU:
    - ACPI C state transition
    - Geyserville transitions
    Now all CPU Power Managment is disabled on this laptop.

    Intel SpeedStep technology (Geyserville-III) enables real-time dynamic
    switching of the CPU core voltage and the CPU clock frequency.

    Since that I don't have any problem with running Virtual PC.

    Thanks for your reply.

    Don't you think responding to a more than 3 years old thread is a bit
    overkill?
    Most probably the poster who had the problem has long since moved on
    and is not watching anymore....
