Win XP Did not like the Modem on that PCI Slot. I’ve seen this too many times myself. Look in your MOBO manual for the IRQ Shares on the MOBO
PCI Slots. Pending on the MOBO, you should be able to use PCI Slot 3.
But check your Shares in case.
If you want to really test how good your software firewall is.
get the Leak test from Grc.com and run it to test if your firewall leaks.
Simple to use save on desktop,double click and it your firewall ask to let
it in answer no. And then you’ll have your question Answered of how good is my firewall really.?
Under Folder Options, Be sure you tick SHOW HIDDEN FILES AND FOLDERS. Recopy Office And try again. And Sounds like you are running Office Premium.? Yes.?? I have done this with Office 2000 Pro. Not with the Frontpage. That will make the size on the Disc to burn Much bigger.
Unless you have a CDRW that will support 90 or 99 min CD-R.
“IF” You have the book on the System that tells about the motherboard. And shows a lay out of the Motherboard. Look for JP8 (most are) move it to discharge bios. BE SURE to power the system off and unpluged. After discharge bios you should be able to get into the bios on the board. the only BAD thing about this is that you have to reset everything back up on the board. IE cpu setting ,Video, boot order, etc. Dont worrie its no that tough. If your not sure, you should ask there tack support. :D
I think it’s a great Idea for a Hardware form. As not everybody looks at ways to Tweak it, but to make it Operate like it should. True There are plenty of Hardware forms that take about the Hardware. But I have yet to see one that will explain to the Lamer, how it should work. And NOT how to just Tweak it. I’d even run the form If need be. Or we could all trade off on it. I’m In Gents. :D

Oh yes… LOL the famous IE error. Just Right click IE on your desktop And del all the files,links, History. Be sure to clean out the Prefetch folder In Windows. To see it, just unhide the folders.. BTW, clean out the hidden Temp Folder. Start, Run, %TEMP%. Edit select all. Shift ket and del. Lifes Good. Run disk cleanup after a reboot. You should be good for the go.
But some times Win update is down too. Happy Hoildays ENJOY.
Being and ASUS MOBO, that a VIA setup. Zip Drives will always become C: Drive under XP. You will have to go into Management and reset these to your likeing. Right click my computer and go to manage, then Disk management. in the white area of the drive Right click and go to change drive Letter. Remove all drive Letters and then Resign them. Do this on ALL your Drives. From there you can go back and set your Hard Drive as C: CD-ROM as D: etc. BTW, Do go to IOMEGA.com
and get there NEW software for Your Zip Drive. It does make a differance.
XP like to drop the ball at times with a Zip drive. Also,be sure to look for the System Hang patch for Zips. Not sure if its for XP. But under 9x OS VIA MOBO, it Great. ENJOY. Happy Holidays
Go to http://www.blackviper.com
There you can get a pdf of XP services and W2K. Look his sight over good.
It’s a knowen fact that XP home is NOT that great. It’s a striped Ver.
It your not running any Servers, file and print shares, Ect. I’d on load
some things in that OS. If your useing 512K Ram or less. Then I would uninstall things that are not needed.
alot on things that XP loads are default. I use XP Pro, as I have more control on what goes on in the back Ground. Hope this helps. If not drop a line, I’ll go far into detail with you.

RETIRED AND HATEING IT.December 17, 2003 at 1:42 pm in reply to: using Hub for Connecting Windows XP and Windows 98 #202256
If your just going to connect two System’s together, it’s real easy.
Plug your DSL,Cable Modem into the port on the hub that says WAN,or Port 1. Most of them are marked on the back of the hub. READ your Hub Manual to be sure. from the Hub You will need to Cat 5 (I Think Through)
Cables to connect the systems. And each pc needs to have its own Network cards to work. NOTE: Some Cisco 768 DSL require Cross Cables.
Check with your PC shop to ask what cables you need to install.
If you in tend to use these as file and print share,you will have to install
File and print share from your windows CD. XP by default all ready has it installed. You will then need to install ICS for the Win 98 System. Of the
Win98 CD. BTW, ICS stands for Internet connetion Shareing.
Be sure to have a GOOD firewall In place.
