  1. It doesn't hang when it detects hardware. It hangs when it installs programs to the start menu.
  2. Just stuck, still, on the second half (where the machine reboots).
  3. Did it lag for you during setup like it does for me?
  4. I would, but this is in setup when it lags.
  5. I'll try and see what happens when I take the current 2.8GHz P4 out and replace it with the factory 2.66GHz P4. EDIT: Scratch that. I can use an even slower P4 that runs at 1.5GHz. I can both sticks of RAM out and put a 512MB one in to replace it from my eMachines 730.
  6. The main issue I am experiencing is that the post button doesn't work. Strangely, I saw the mode toggle yesterday, but now I can't. I am also unable to edit my post, quote other posts (I just tried), unless I show the context and open the link in a tab.
  7. I am indeed referring to the quick reply box. I am not using any script blocker (is Tampermonkey one? If it is, I've disabled it). Thanks for that tip; that will be very helpful! I am testing now to see if it works with Tampermonkey disabled. Unfortunately, it did not work. Shall I try updating Chrome?
  8. Well, I've replaced the SATA drive with the IDE one, and it made no difference. I took one of the 1GB sticks out, and it still made no difference. This is with OS Install Mode off. Any other ideas?
  9. Hello, I am using Google Chrome on Windows 7 x64, and I am unable to post on my thread UNLESS I show more options and post there. Is there anything that can be done?
  10. Technically, and I could be wrong, shouldn't "OS Install Mode" bypass removing a 1GB stick (as it limits the RAM to 256MB)? I just remembered I had a "turtle slow" 160GB IDE Seagate drive, so I can try with that. Thanks! Also, one of the posts I saw on the Dell forum said that they got 98SE to work on this system by enabling UDMA in the BIOS (all the others were left intact), which according to the F1 info on the BIOS, is meant for IDE HDDs.
  11. I just re-enabled the floppy, and redid setup on an 80GB partition. This time, I saw it access the floppy like crazy before locking up. Does that offer any clues?
  12. Hello, I have a Dell Dimension 4600 which originally came with XP Pro SP1. I wanted to have a dualboot on this machine, so it would be able to run DOS games that don't run correctly under XP. Here are the specs: 2.8GHz Pentium 4 Northwood HT 2X1GB RAM Nvidia GeForce FX 5500 250GB SATA HDD (I have an old Maxtor 40GB that's IDE, but it won't be sufficient for my needs). Creative Labs Sound Blaster Live! 5.1 NOTE: The specs I posted are NOT original to the system (enter 6Z5MW0J as the service tag to see the original specs). I have done some research already and found that you need to run setu
  13. Just joined to say that I also have a Deskpro EN. My friend added a PCI GeForce4 MX 420 which works just fine. I remember seeing a forum (think it was HP) where some ATI cards simply refused to show a POST due to compatibility problems. If I were you, I'd see about getting an NVidia card; they seem to have less problems.
