Introduction+WinME is seriously troubling me
Since this is my first posting, i might as well introduce myself. Im prasanna and currently doing comp sys engg in UniSA in Australia...apart from that there isnt much to know abt me bar the fact that im a cricket nut.
Now we have that out of the way, i am having VERY VERY serious probs with WinME.
Firstly on my desktop computer, some times win Me just crashes...its going on fine and suddenly boom...when i press CRTL-ALT-DEL...the blue screen comes up BUT...IT HAS STRANGE CHARACTERS ALL OVER IT...ITS MEANT TO BE SAYING "SYSTEM IS BUSY" but ends up saying "&*^#BS&^P*"....u get the point...when i go to restart, the same problem appears but now its ALL OVER the startup screen...im forced to turn my computer OFF for abt an hour b4 i can use it again...CAN ANY1 PLEEEEASE help???????????
My specs are as follows
128 MB SD133
40GB (partioned into 5GB C and 35 GB D)
NVIDIA GEFORCE 2 64MB
SECONDLY, i had a dell latitude which was running on W2K until recently. Since i couldnt get past the startup screen, i reformatted the entire disk, and then decided to install winme....the problem now is two fold....
1) the computer WILL JUST NOT BOOT...it comes up to the WinME screen and after that just goes dead....it boots up in safe mode but when i restart it legit (ie ALT-F4...restart)...the same problem occurs....however, it starts up fine after abt 8-10 attempts...many a time i wanted to get a hammer...
2) it wont recognise the Xircom Carbus 10/100+56K modem no matter what drivers i load into it...it still comes up in the device manager thingy as "Unknown device"
the specs for my laptop are:
128 MB ram
8 MB Video card (ATI rage i think)
thanks for any help offered and im looking forward to knowing u all
