  1. What is the make and model laptop?
  2. Have you seen this on the site? http://www.cheetahburner.com/free.html
  3. You might try this app to see what is running the background. http://www.sysinternals.com/Utilities/ProcessExplorer.html Works great for me. You might have them kill unneeded program in the backround that are not needed. Do they have DMA set for the harddrive? Could also have them to check device manager in safe mode for ghost hardware.
  4. These modems use a software port not hardware. I have see this problem before ,fix was to disable the com ports in the bios and reinstall. If com port in the bios is enabled and the modem is installed to that port windows thinks the port is already in use. That is why moving the modem to another pci slot works some times it installs to another port. Might also go to safe mode and see if there is any ghost modem still listed there and remove all and reinstall the modem. Myself I would get a modem with a Agere chip set or use to be lucent. If you have more than one dial up icon in the dial up folder might remove them all and make a new one. Also make sure that log on to network is disabled in the dial up properties and only tcip is check. You will find that with Agere chipset you can get more updated drivers and they will take line noise allot better. http://www.usr.com/support/product-template.asp?prod=oem Note the age of the drivers and USR will not ever up date them. If you look in the WINMODEM.INF file you can find out more about you modem. You can also run regedit go to local machine,enum,pci Last Modified 02/03/99, CS, OEM R&D Check here also. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/q150619/ http://support.microsoft.com/kb/q191444/
  5. Might go to run and type sysedit and check the autoexec.bat there. There could be a space somewere.
  6. You might try it this way/ http://support.microsoft.com/kb/323921/en-us
  7. If you have the divers for the router. You might shut down,plug the modem in,boot up and when windows finds new hardware point to the folder you have the drivers in. If that will not work check the drivers if it has a EXE file to install the modem
  8. Do you have the drivers for the router, might open them up and find it inside. What is the Router model number? Look on the pcmcia card for a FCC ID #. Sometimes these cards are repackage and sold under there name. http://www.gemtek.com.tw/pro_wl616r.htm
  9. I would turn system restore off for good in windows me,just a system hog. Have you ever tried IE Privacy Keeper. http://www.browsertools.net/IE-Privacy-Keeper/index.html Good program that can be set up to do all this with one click. Just remember not to set it up to clean out the temp fill on reboot because some program install put fill in the temp folder to install on reboot.
  10. What I do some times if you have enough ram is turn off virtual memory,reboot,defrag the drive then set virtual memory back the way it was. I use the me defrag with no problem.
  11. Do you have a copy of the microsoft securty udate CD that was put out a year ago PsycoUnc ? This helps alot on a new clean install. Bring it up to OCT 2004 with IE update also.
  12. try this page http://www.softwarepatch.com/internet/flash.html or for shockwave and flash. This worked for me http://www.softwarepatch.com/internet/shockwave.html
  13. Looks like Nero Toolkit has it also on my system.
  14. Might want to check this out also. http://www.cakewalk.com/Support/DX9.ASP
  15. Before I did a reinstall of the OS I would uninstall Cakewalk,go to start,programs,windows explore,go down to programs and remove any folder left behind by cakewalk uninstall. I would download regcleaner and install. http://www.majorgeeks.com/download460.html Reboot pc,run recleaner to remove old reg entrys left behind by unstall of program. Do a search on pc for anything that is related to this program.Alot of times when you uninstall a program it will leave behing a backup of settings so just uninstalling the program will not fix a problem. I would also go to windows temp folder and remove anything that is there. Reboot to safe mode, go to the device manager, remove the cdrw from the list reboot and windows will reinstall it. You might also reboot back to safe mode and remove the sound card in device manager and reboot back to windows. Have you ran spybot or adaware or check the system for any virus? When you run regcleaner there will be a software list,look for anything that points to cakewalk and remove.After I got the syatem clean up then I would reinstall the program
  16. you may need to clean out your Temp folder. The Pyro Temp file is located under C:\Program Files\Cakewalk\Pyro\Pyro Temp http://forum.cakewalk.com/tm.asp?m=705893 Was the file you are trying to play burn by this program.
  17. you might try this. High light the file,hold down the shift key,right click the file,go down to open with, pick the program you want to open this type of file. You cantry this before you put a check to always open with. do you get any error when trying to play a file. Might look at this. http://www.cakewalk.com/Support/Lessons/WindowsMixer.asp http://forum.cakewalk.com/tm.asp?m=84588 http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/customer-...3226775-2968700
  18. I run Avast on a old 300 PII with 256 ram and cant tell if it running in the background. For unknown device you might want to run this program. http://web.archive.org/web/20050203215308/...ad.php?det=3908
  19. Are you showing any unknown device in device manager? I would also boot to safe mode,device manager and check for any ghost devices listed. 98 is known for showing any device more than one time in device manager. If so you show a device listed more than one time in the device manager in safe mode you will have to remove all of that device and reboot and install the device. You can also run regedit go to Local machine,Enum,and check what hardware is installed.Before you ever remove hardware from windows always remove the drivers first than shut down to remove the hardware. Did you add a video card and have one already on the mother board? If so you will have to disable it in the bios and you can disable the device in device manager. As far as antvirus I would use Avast and the home user is free.It is not a system hog and it is one of the highest rated software out there.
  20. http://www.pcguide.com/ref/hdd/bios/overController-c.html http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/ca...c.asp?CatId=508
  21. Did you try installing the drivers first then plug in the printer?
  22. Some good info here and patches both for DSL and dialup. http://www.speedguide.net/downloads.php
  23. I have no problems with 2.1 but will install the newer one. Thanks for the great job you have done Gape.
  24. on the install I was ask if I wanted to keep the newer file or older because the file I had was newer? Should I keep the newer file or let the install the older one
