Dear experts:

I had my pc crashed (blue screen) after installing MS SQL server express edition (available at: ).

I managed to restore the PC after I installed a new hard drive and then removed MS SQL server 2005 folder.  I heard that another person I knew had a similar problem.

What may be a good alternative to MS SQL Server 2005?  MS SQL Server 2008 is not compatible with my PC.

    Try downloading from this page:

    Actually it is 53.5 MB file but the link which you gave has only 36.5 MB.
    I have many users installing from the link which I have provided and didnt faced any issues at all

    Note: Install prerequisites before installing this.
