  1. XP compatible Wireless cards/adapters?

    I own one of these and it too works with WinXP and above... Supports Windows XP/Vista/7/8/8.1/Linux(kernel 2.6.18-3.19.3)/Mac OS X 10.7-10.11, Compatible with 802.11b/g/n products https://www.amazon.com/TP-Link-N150-Wireless-Adapter-TL-WN725N/dp/B008IFXQFU/ref=sr_1_5?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1498079781&sr=1-5&keywords=usb+wireless+network+adapter
  2. WindowsImageBackup

    So when you right click on the file and choose properties, the file size is empty?
  3. Constant reboot, no cd boot

    I use ERD Commander from Winternals, it works good sure post it here and one of us can get to it and see if we can help
  4. How to make my SATA drive C:\ ?

    You may be able to disable the IDE drives in the Bios, but there is no way of telling it that would work unless you tried a reinstall. Even if you managed to change the drive letters, windows would not boot in your existing install because the registry in that install would be pointing to a different drive letter as well as all installed software.
  5. My kingston pen drive

    I do not think it is a windows 2000 issue, more like the usb port one that computer is on the blink, or like bj-kaiser could be some crossed wires
  6. Constant reboot, no cd boot

    We may be able to recover it if we can read what the BSOD is trying to tell us is causing the error. We can stop windows from automatically rebooting if we can change the registry on that computer. See if you can load up BartPE or your fav one and mount to the existing windows. Once you do that edit the registry. Here is what you need to change: Hive: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE Key: \SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control Name: CrashControl Type: REG_DWORD Value: 0 Disable automatic reboot Value: 1 Enable automatic reboot Related: Q174630 - Windows NT Restarts Continuously with Blue Screen.
  7. unable to connect optical mouse to usb 1.1 port

    Great, once you get the right cable let us know if it worked. Some USB 2.0 stuff is backwards compatible.
  8. 64 bit itunes for vista coming?

    glad you figured it out, and it is stupid I agree
  9. Constant reboot, no cd boot

    are you getting a BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) and then a restart? Do you have a different boot CD you can try in case the cd you have is bad or corupt?
  10. unable to connect optical mouse to usb 1.1 port

    you have to be careful if you are using usb to ps2 adapters. I found that they are not really interchangeable.
  11. X38 or 780i

    I would go with the intel one instead
  12. 64 bit itunes for vista coming?

    did you download the 32 bit version instead of the 64 bit version
  13. unable to connect optical mouse to usb 1.1 port

    does it work with a different USB mouse?
  14. Lost XP Task Bar Volume Control

    Another thing you may check is this. Right Click on the taskbar, and go to properties In the first tab (Taskbar) towards the bottom look for a checkmark on Hide inactive Icons Then click on Customize Look for the one that says Volume and see what it is set too. If it is set to always hide that is why it may not be there.
  15. Files Corruption

    may also matter where you are coping the files to. For example if you were coping they to floppies. Then it depends how old the disks are. After a while the floppies get worn out and they will end up getting corrupted. The same probably applies to CD/RW disks.
