to BC dawn_37,
Firstly - your covering a lot of ground in that post - are we fixing the CDROM, the operating system or the network card?
I think we need to go back to basics - were these changes from Win98 to WinME to Win98 done with a clean install? i.e. did you format your drive each time, or were they upgrades or is it dual boot?
You need to give us some information about your system such as CPU type, RAM capacity, hard drive make and size, graphics card type, what anti-virus or anti-spyware you have and some details about your applications.
You should do this:
Secondly - If I had to choose between WinME and Win98SE I'd take Win98SE any day!.
- Clean out your internet cache and temporary files:
- Boot in Safe Mode and do a scandisk with the 'Thorough' and 'Fix' options checked.
If you are not sure how to boot in Safe Mode there is a tutorial here: Safe Mode
How to find scandisk: Double click 'My Computer', right-click the C: drive then Properties>Tools tab, click on Error Checker
- When that's finished do a defrag.
Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Disk Defragmenter
They will take some time but at least you will know your hard drive is working correctly and tidied up.
- Check how much free space you have on your hard drive.
Double-click 'My Computer',right-click on your C: drive and select 'Properties'.
Thirdly - have a look in the New Users Orientation forum. There's a good tutorial on using BBcodes in your messages there. But please don't post your message in size 7 or any large font, it will just make it a nuisance to read.
Get back to us. :)its ok guys. i got a neighbour round to help. it was struggling to read the cd rom so i couldnt do anything with it. neighbour got it to read and now its set up. just to let u guys know though i have a wireless network and it was awireless turbo pci adapter that i was trying to set up in a pc. you guys are great and the amount of stuff that goes wrong with my pc you can rest assure i will be darkening this forum again. lol. thank you so much. dawn
