When you double click internet options from the control panel the is no general tab. Is that correct.
(1) Ever see a W98 computer that in 'control panel' and 'internet options' there is NO 'GENERAL' page? The page where you list your start page and control temporary internet files,etc???
Compaq's are very picky about the RAM I have seen this in several cases. You will need to make sure you are using the correct speed of RAM and not putting in more then the MB will support.
(2) My FATAL EXCEPTION errors seemd to (almost) vanish with removal of any 128 Ram Memory. The computer won't run on a 128 chip. If one is added it won't be recognized. Put 3 (theres 3 slots) 64's in and all fine.(even different manufacturers) I took the 128 sticks and put in a very similar 475mhz Compaq and they work wonderful.
Yes this is normal. The operating system will assign the correct comm ports.
(3) I can get no modem to work. Windows recognizes it...installs drivers....but never will any modem work.....
In Device Manager (my computer-properties-device manager) it lists one MODEM. Correct one. On modem it lists COMM 2 as port.(with no option to change)
On the listing of ports further down in 'device manager' it lists that LPTD? (whatever it is) which is printer port. The only other listing is COMM 1.
Modem on COMM 2?
I only have 2 pci sockets. Switched modem and it still listed under COMM 2.
Is this normal?
