  1. new modem but hangs up on me

    My isp is prodigy.net. Yes blackwar I have tryed that update, it does the same thing that the original drivers on the cd do. The screen said that it is dialing but after about 1 min. I pick up the phone and there is still a dial tone so it never dialed. When I load the XP generic drivers the modem connects but it disconnects me sometimes to, even with a 49bps speed.
  2. Yes I Hated XP and it still kicks me now and again.. Read my posts and you will see I wasnt happy. BUT thanks to all your help and the link to Sisoft Sandra computer burn in program I have found the root of all my problems in XP. It was my DDR memmory chips, I had two 256 Mb chips installed and they where conflicting with each other, I found out from the burn in program that they where different brand names to, so I went out and bought a 512 Mb chip and Im a happy camper. REMEMBER THIS POST. Bad memmory will cause just about all blue screen errors and Internet Explorer errors . CHECK YOUR MEMMORY. Thanks again to all who helped me.
  3. Happy B-day

    Thanks to all for the Birthday wishes. Yes im 43 now but still love to compute and kick a** In online games.. good greef my first pc was a Tandy with only a tape recorder and no hard or floppy drives.
  4. I bought a Creative modem Blaster 56k v92. The modem hangs up on me after I connect to the internet or start a game online, strange indeed. I have NEVER DISCONNECT CHECKED, but it still does, any ideas.
  5. Quake Arena<<<cool Game

    Yes I do have Xp firewall disabled and I closed all start up programs to, so I dont think it drawing on my system or memmory. If I have a good connection speed on my modem I should be aloud to play, right. any one have any tips for me so I can play. Thanks.
  6. Quake Arena<<<cool Game

    But I cant play online for some reason. I got a 56k modem and when I connect to a game server "any" I get the error message ' connection Interrupted" and cant play. I am in the game and all action is moving around me but I cant move or do anything.. HELP ME PLEASE. I want to frag all of them!!
  7. motherboard question

    The system locks up all the time and the memmory test was a low level test not the high stress test. what is the 2.2.2 setting for ram, I cant find anything like this in my bios
  8. I ran Sisoft Sandra, a benchmark test program, and it told me to update my SMBIOS DMI to 2.3 or above, is this my MB bois? I also ran a benchmark burn test on my DDR memmory and it locked up twice and gave me a BSOD. does this mean my memmory is bad?
  9. If his company leases trucks from Penske and he gets around, I might have the privilege to meet him.
